Chapter 1 of 5: Brittany discovers that either Christy or Sarah has spread a false rumor that she has cheated on her boyfriend named Corey. Will Brittany discover who really started the rumor and why? Will Corey believe that she was innocent and take her back?
Chapter 1: Brittany confronts Christy about a False Rumor
Brittany walked up to Christy, shoved her shoulder, and stated angrily, “I heard what you said about me.”
Christy, asked, “What do you mean? What did I say?”
Brittany snapped, “You said that I’ve been cheating on my boyfriend.”
Christy said, “I did not say that.”
Brittany, unconvinced, said, “Yeah, right. You know you did.”
Christy said, “Brittany, I never did say that. I don’t even know who your boyfriend is. So how would I know if you have been cheating or not?”
Brittany said, “My boyfriend is Corey.”
Christy said, “Oh, well, I didn’t know that. You’re so popular with the guys, I can’t keep up with which guy you like now.”
Slightly appeased, Brittany said, “Well, Sarah said that she heard you had been telling Corey that I was cheating on him.”
Christy asked, “Who did she hear that from?”
Sounding very frustrated, Brittany said, “I don’t know. I didn’t ask.”
Christy said, “I don’t mean to start something with Sarah, but maybe she’s the one who told Corey you were cheating. Maybe she’s trying to start something with Corey so she can get him. Or maybe she’s trying to start a false rumor about me. But I promise you, I did not talk to Corey about anything. Like I said, I didn’t even know who you were going out with.”
Brittany calmed down somewhat and let Christy go on her way. But her frustration mounted when she thought about how mad Corey was with her right now because of this false rumor. She wondered if Christy was right. Did Sarah lie to her? Did Sarah want Corey for herself? She didn’t know who to believe.
Brittany became aware that everyone was rushing. The tardy bell was about to ring. She rushed off to Math class, but had a hard time concentrating. Five minutes was just too short between classes to carry on much of a conversation. She couldn’t wait until she got to high school the next year when she would get ten minutes between classes.
