Walking over to the mirror above my dresser I regarded my reflection. There was nothing wrong with the way I looked. I knew I wasn’t ugly. Logically I knew that plain brown hair and glasses meant nothing when it came to the true nature of a person. But let’s face it. Those characteristics signified a wide chasm that kept girls like me forever separate from boys like Will Harlow.
Will was not a shallow person. He would never be mean or intentionally hurtful. But what he’d said was right. We just weren’t on the same playing field. We had nothing in common, except for our friends. What in the world would we talk about if we went on a date? He could probably care less about Newton’s Laws and I was completely ignorant when it came to sports.
Maybe if I lost the glasses and put on a little more eye make-up. And somewhere in my closet I had to have something better than the ever-present sweater.
No, no, no, no! I was not changing my appearance for a guy. That was what desperate girls did. I would not appear desperate. Not even for Will Harlow.
