Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl who was dating the most handsome boy in school. He would pick her up every morning and they would drive to school together. Once there, they would hug goodbye and each would go to his or her own classes. At lunch they sat together with their friends and ate tasty food while having a lot of laughs. Then it was off to their afternoon classes. After school, the girl was a cheerleader and the boy was the quarterback for the football team. When practice was over, the boy would drive the girl home and walk her to her door. Each day was perfect and special in its own way to the girl.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl who was dating the most handsome boy in school. When he didn’t forget, he would pick her up in the morning and they would drive to school together. Once there, they would say goodbye and the girl would walk to her classes alone while the boy walked to his classes with the captain of the cheerleading squad. At lunch they sat together, but the boy always had his back to the girl while he laughed and joked with his friends. Then she went to her afternoon classes while the boy did “something else.” After school, the girl was a cheerleader and the boy was the quarterback for the football team. When the girl got to practice she saw the captain of the cheerleaders up in the bleachers with her boyfriend! As soon as they saw the girl, the boy and the captain came down to practice. At the end of practice, the boy drove the girl home and dropped her off on the corner because he “was in a hurry.” The girl walked from the corner to her house crying and wondering what to do.
