💔 Flabby Patty 💔
(She’s too fat )
Written by Authoress Yesha 📒📒📒
Oh how I dreaded High School. Specially Greenwich High School that made me want to dig a hole and bury myself alive.
I have been made fun of ever since I was a kid. Unlike the other girls in my school, I have thick thighs and a round curvy body and above all that, I am like five feet and six inches tall.
Like being fat wasn’t bad enough. I was the female version of Hagrid, with my dark brown shaggy, curly hair. There’s one way to put it, I was a walking disaster.
Every kid in school used to call me ‘Flabby Patty’, well because of all my flab. At first, I used to be so offended that I’d cry for hours locking myself up in my room but thankfully I have spent almost all of my high school years being invisible.
Nobody barely notices me anymore so it’s all good.
I looked at myself in the mirror and grimaced. My hair never fell into place no matter how many times I combed it. The only good thing about my face were my green eyes, I got those from my Dad.
Sighing, I threw my backpack over my shoulders and made my way downstairs to get breakfast.
Mum worked as a consultant in some company. She joined after Dad died five years ago in a car accident. It hasn’t been the same ever since. I barely get to see Mom anymore as she is always working. I guess that’s her way of coping with Dad’s death.
I walked into the kitchen and saw the yellow sticky note on the fridge. Gone to work, will be back by 9. Love you, Mom.
Suddenly I lost all my appetite and changed my mind about having breakfast. It was almost time for my bus, so locking the front door behind me I started walking towards the bus stop which was only two blocks away.
First day of the last year of High School. Finally, I’d be out of that hell hole and I’ll go off to college and maybe for once make friends and have a normal life.
I had to wait for five minutes before the bus showed up.
I was the last kid to get picked up, so always sat in the front seats, fortunately away from all the bullies. Ugh, I hated my school to that extent that I wished it would explode with everyone inside it.
The first person to spot as I walked down the bus was Avery Samuel. With her perfect auburn hair that smelled like cranberries and her dimpled cheeks, Avery was my only friend at school
If you call listening to another person talking about themselves occasionally being friends, then yes, she was my friend.
“Patty!” She waved excitedly from a distance and everyone turned to loom at her. I hated when she drew attention but she did it on purpose. Guys loved her and she made sure they did.
On the other hand, I hoped the stay invisible for another year but being around Avery was a little difficult to do so. “Hey Ave,” I whispered tucking my hair behind my ears.”
“You look nice,” she smiled at me, her hazel eyes dripping with joy.
One thing I liked about Avery, as much as she loved being complimented, she was always complimenting others as well. I mean she even said nice things to me and I was a the queen of loaded bullshit.
“Thanks,” I muttered and forced a smile. Without another word, I walked into the school halls. It smelled like wet floors and detergent, like it had been just mopped.
“Wait up Patty!” Avery panted behind me her heels ticking upon the wet floors. “Slow down.”
“I need to grab my schedule for this term,” I said letting her catch up to me.
“We’ll go together,” it sounded more like a question so I nodded.
We were always meant to get our class schedules from our advisor, Angie Hamilton.
Besides Avery, she was also the only friend I had.
“Good morning Angie,” I smiled as we walked into her office.
Surprisingly it wasn’t packed with students like it normally was every first day.
“Morning girls,” Angie’s face lit up as she looked up at us. Adjusting her glasses, she grabbed two pages and held them out to us. “These are your schedules.”
“Thankyou,” I said gently grabbing the paper.
“Thanks Angie,” Avery winked and giggled.
“Off you go girls,” Angie shook her head, grinning. “Come see me during lunch, Patty.”
As I held out my hand to open the door to her office to walk out, the door flung open bashing me right in the face. I fell backwards and landed on my butt.
“OMIGOSHPATTYYOUOKAY” Avery sounded like she was throwing a fit.
“You should be more careful Hunter!” I heard Angie’s voice scolding him.
For a minute everything had blacked out and all i could hear were voices. Avery helped me to my feet.
” I am so sorry,” Hunter’s rough voice banged through my ears making my head hurt.
Placing my hand on my forehead, where the huge bump had formed, I blinked continuously trying to adjust my sight. “Yeah, ok.”
“You should go see the nurse,” Angie advised shaking her head with a concerned look on her face.
“I’ll take her,” Avery linked her arm into mine.
“Mhm.” I mumbled. My head throbbed with pain and my nerves were about to burst.
“I am sorry Flabby Patty,” Hunter flashed me a grin before Avery dragged me out of Angie’s office.
“Who the hell does he think he is?”Avery snorted angrily. “Just because he is hot doesn’t mean he can go smashing people in the face everytime he opens a door!”
I couldn’t help but laugh even though my head still hurt. “It’s fine Avery.”
“No its not!” she shook her head in disapproval.
So, you guessed it.
Hunter Reyes was the man-whore of our school and undoubtedly he was exactly the opposite of a walking load of bullshit. He was a walking load of hot-shit. Every single girl drooled over the path that he walked on.
And to my utter dismay, he didn’t miss out on a chance to make my life miserable.
He was the one who came up with the name Flabby Patty. And well, since he was the Emperor of Greenwich High, everyone followed.
“So I have English right now,” I said glancing at my schedule. “Do you?”
Avery sighed looking disappointed. “I have biology. Guess we won’t be having a few classes together.”
To be honest, I was slightly disappointed too. It was nice having her around in class because then i didn’t have to work with someone else in a group.
After waving bye, I walked into my English class. A few kids were already seated in the back benches leaving out the front desks. This was all wrong! How was I supposed to stay invisible if I sat in the front.
I had the biggest urge to start running away from here and never stop till I reached China or something.
Lowering my head, I walked into the class and sat down on one of the front desks.
English was one of my favourite classes because I loved learning about words and writing.
Oh no. No. No. No.
I looked up to see Hunter’s annoying grin and the entire class hooted with girls chuckling.
This was all wrong! Senior high was already messed up.
“Hey Flabby Patty,” he winked and took a seat next to me. I kept my gaze away from him. Maybe if I ignored him, he’d go away.
“You lost weight over the summer,” I could feel his voice ripping through my ears.
My face was turning hot because I knew all the eyes were burning towards me.
“Hey look at me Flabby Patty.” The entire class burst out laughing like he had something highly amusing. People really needed to work on their crappy sense of humor.
“Go away.” I muttered under my breath still not looking at him.
“You don’t mean that,” Hunter laughed, his annoying laugh piercing through my ears. Ugh, if only he would leave me alone. Just one more. Was it too much to ask?
“What a loser!” Someone shouted.
” Flabby Loser!” A girl’s voice followed..
My vision was getting blurry with tears, trying to hold them back. I felt humiliated.
“Fuck you,” I managed to choke out.
“Excuse me?” Hunter said his voice sounding surprised.
Taking a deep breath, I turned to look at him. His dark blonde hair fell perfectly over his forehead and his blue eyes were full of mischief. Although, at the moment he was frowning at me.
“Fuck you,” I repeated looking him in the eye. This was my last year and i was not going to let this idiot of a guy ruin it.
Surprisingly, Hunter’s frown curled into a grin. “Name your time and place.”
I would have bashed his face against the wall and eaten his brains for lunch if only the teacher didn’t walk in that time.
First thing to do on my checklist this year, Kill Hunter, I scribbled it down on the last page of my notebook.
