Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 2
We wondered back up to the longhouse and he completely “shut down” (one of the girls on trip gave me that word for it and it suits nicely) for the rest of the trip. I did not exist—the only time I existed was to deny to anybody I ever existed like that for her. I didn’t understand what had happened. She gave me the impression that she was really quite experienced, even that she wasn’t a virgin. She was very much a poser and aware of the way he was seen by others.
Before all that happened one of the guys in my year level with us had asked her if she was a virgin and she just laughed, which is really quite a reaction. So I was so confused and so was everyone I talked about it to. The girls on trip all knew that something was up but yeah it was a mystery because she just started ignoring me after we had been getting on really well and flirting and that. My friends that I was talking to—a couple of boys—thought we were secretly going out but didn’t want to freak people out by hooking up officially on a school trip.
Anyway, this went on for like a month after we got back. She denies everything, we don’t speak and she won’t for her life look me in the eye. One of our mutual friends really gets all like “WTF? What happened in Malaysia? I really need to know!” (this is a girl btw). So I tell her everything and she breaks out with this completely freaking weird fact that she’s never ever in his life seen or heard about my primary school girl ever having a boyfriend or hooking up or anything EVER and that the thought of her with a boy was just weird. So I found out I defriggited a girl I thought wasn’t a virgin. That is so not cool.
I couldn’t, no matter how hard I tried, get the whole incident out of my head for ages. She is a lying, faking, posing, wannabe that has made me look like a complete nutcase because she told all his friends that I was obsessed with her during trip and that the reason she was ignoring me was because she thought I was an ugly annoying piece of shit and not that I caught her out in his stupid little act. SO, that whole thing went well!!!
What really gets on my nerves is that the nob decided recently that she liked one of the guys on my group, who also happened to be close friends with his cousin who goes to all our school. This girl is equally inexperienced and the only way she can talk to him is at lunch when he and her cousin hang with us. She comes over and the rest of the group pays out on them and it’s completely awkward because nothing would ever happen because they are both so completely nervous. So whenever I hang out with my friends now and she’s there, she won’t look at me, won’t acknowledge my existence in the slightest and almost always leaves shortly after she arrives.
When I leave my group of friends to hang with some other people I am friends with she almost always stays there, being all awkward with his crushing and getting paid out for the whole of break. So now whenever I hang out with my friends I feel like I’m ruining her chances of getting a boyfriend/girlfriend before high school finishes (she’s in Year 12 and we are in Year 11), which just is one of those things you’re better off for having, and feel terribly guilty about it all.
I feel like going up to her and asking “Her? HER????? The one girl on the planet you’re…
