Description : Where I Belong
Benjamin Kelly was the bane of my existence.
His teasing was relentless, always making sure to point out each and every one of my insecurities whenever I was around him. And because I was best friends with his sister Tessa, I was around him all the time.
“You have food stuck in your braces. That’s so disgusting. Maybe you should just stop eating since you’re so fat anyway.”
“Gross. What is that on your face? It looks like a second head.”
“God, can you even see anything out of those glasses, nerd? How many times are you going to run into things?”
“Mia Corelli is the ugliest girl I’ve ever seen. Oh sorry, Mia. I didn’t see you sitting right next to me.”
I hated him with a fury. I was convinced that his sole purpose in life was to break me down to nothing. And he succeeded on more than one occasion. I never cried in front of him though. I never gave him that satisfaction. I just stood there and took it, saving my tears for when I was alone. Tessa was always standing up for me, throwing every insult she could think of at him. And I was grateful for that, because I didn’t have it in me to give him what he deserved. My bank ofebacks were patheticpared to Tessa’s. So I’d just sit back and let her handle it.
“You’re just jealous that Mia’s teeth are going to be straighter than yours, loser. Why don’t you go get that giant gap fixed before someone kicks a field goal through it?”
