Star noticed Marco looked sad so she was like “What’s wrong? :(”
“I’m worried, Star.. I just feel kinda stuck, you know?”
Star tilted her head completely to one side. “No? I don’t know..Elaborate!”
Marco shook his head, smiling a little at Star’s silly gestures. . “Um. Well, I’ve kinda been thinking about..changing. And I’m dating Jackie, but I’m worried those changes will make her not love me anymore.”
“What? But Jackie loves you so much!”
“Yeah.” Marco sighed. “It’s just-”
“Marco,” Star touched his shoulder. “You need to stop caring about what other people think more than what YOU think is best for yourself!”
“I know.” Marco looked down.
“Lots of people love you! And they’re going to love you no matter what, even if you turn into a bird or something!! We would buy you the best bird seed and everything!”
Marco smiled and hugged his friend. “Or something..” he repeated in his mind.
