Diana's Diary: Entry 3
I have to win the class presidency, and here’s why:
Jenna and Morgan will realize how wrong they were to abandon me.
I will prove that I’m not just some stupid mean girl. People will see that there’s so much more to me.
My mom will (maybe) be proud of me and (maybe) start paying a little more attention to me.
Yes, that’s right, believe it or not I’m in it for more than just the power. Sure, yes, the power will be nice, but what I really want is to be taken seriously. To be respected. I mean, is that really so much to ask?
Yes, in an ideal world I wouldn’t have to win class president in order to win my own mother’s love, but nobody said life was fair.
So, as you can see, the stakes are extremely high. Like I said, I need to win this. Which is why when I saw Scott pass Jenna a drawing of her as his First Lady I sort of lost my cool and decided to take matters into my own hands. I just wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I let that nerd beat me! People already take him seriously, he already has everything he needs, why is he trying to take this from me? He. Doesn’t. Deserve. It.
Which is why I had to frame him.
I stole the answers to our cumulative exam and shoved them into his backpack when he wasn’t looking. I know that sounds terrible, but all is fair in love and war! And when someone tries to undermine me, it is war.
I think Jenna knows what I did. I could see her judging. Diary, she thinks she’s so much better than me and it makes my skin crawl.
My imaginary Kingdom is the only place I feel safe. There, nobody judges me, least of all Jenna. In my Kingdom, enemies beg for my forgiveness. And I don’t give it to them. Life is merciless, so I have to be too.
