Kathy met Nick one day in the middle of the school year. It wasn’t any sort of unusual day, Kathy hadn’t woken up feeling any different and everything went as it normally did. She checked herself on the scale in the morning, depression flooding her as she noticed she hadn’t lost a single pound and then she went about the rest of the time getting ready for school.
That was normal too, the girls and boys laughed and whispered about her and a nice little pink note that read ‘Piggy’ with a crudely drawn pig on it was waiting for her, stuffed into her locker rather viciously.
She had gone into the bathroom to cry and it was when she looked up into the mirror after washing her face that she saw him, the tall, handsome boy that she’d never seen before and hadn’t heard come in.
