The Choice (part 2)
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Deena picked up her backpack. It felt light for a change. Jess would be waiting at the bus stop. It seemed like they had been friends forever.
 
2     Maybe she could go to school by herself for a change. She could run now far faster than the bus could drive! She'd skip riding the bus and see Jess at school later.
 
3     Deena was standing by her locker when Jess stopped by.
 
4     "I missed you at the bus stop today, Deena," said Jess as she took a long look at her friend. "You look really nice today."
 
5     "Thanks. I decided not to wait for the bus today."
 
6     "You seem different," added Jess.
 
7     "That is because I am different," said Deena, as she closed her locker. "Today people will notice me. They will see that I am not average."
 
8     "I'm just average," said Jess softly as Deena turned away. "What's wrong with being average?"
 
9     The "improved" Deena ignored her friend's comments and the implied slight. The real Deena did not. She felt a lump form in her throat for a moment, until she was distracted.
