To Tell or NOT To Tell #Wattys2015
A single note was in my locker. I sighed. Business had been so much slower since Kelli cried non-stop on set last month during one of my more "heated interviews".
"Wasn't my fault she was such a bad class president..." I mumbled as I carefully unfolded the stationary. As I read what was inside, I gasped. This was better than when I found out Lilac, former Mrs. Popular, had refused to wear deodorant.
For three. Solid. Weeks.
I smiled widely. This was going to blow my tiny school interviewing career out of the water.
Janelle is NOT your typical teenage girl. She's got a super star Mom, and an awesome chef Dad. Even in her last year of high school, she's kept up with her impeccable grades, she still hates the idea of dating, usually wears huge rimmed glasses, and has an abnormal obsession with both photography and bubble gum. Typical nerdish behavior, right? But somehow, she sits at the top of the social ladder.
How is this possible, you might ask?
The answer: she's a top notch reporter. Born with the ability to anchor, she hosts the school's morning talk show, The Berkeley High Buzz, and gives everybody the scoop on everybody else's business. Normal people cower in her presence, because for all they know, she's heartless. When she's on air, she gets down to business, which is good for her audience and terrible for whoever she's interviewing. She even has loads of inside sources, to the point where nobody knows who's secrets are going to be dished out. The only way to find out?
Listening at precisely 7:45 in the morning for her signature "Good morning Berkeley High!"
When she receives word (from an anonymous source, of course) that Vick Anderson, A.K.A Mr. Popular is cheating on his girlfriend, she's ecstatic. Until, of course, that anonymous source goes back and ALSO tells Vick that Janelle knows his secret.
To say things go wrong would be a serious understatement.
