No one would know that yesterday it was
Unless they saw her
yesterday, of course,
or saw her facebook or instagram or snapchat live stream of the dying process which was
also shared to youtube.
Brown haired Amanda
is gone!!! #newhair #whodis
all traces of the dye will be lost
after 5-7 washes, but
for that intermediate time,
Amanda is dead.
Enter pink haired chick
rose toned, pink grapefruit scented, exotic because she knows words like ‘ombre’ and ‘balayage’, pastel mermaid instant princess blonde highlighted shade fade girl
she dyed around 21:03 look it up
pink haired chick wears all of Amanda’s clothes
goes to all Amanda’s classes in the mud brown humanities building and says “hi, sorry I’m late, sir,” when she enters a seminar last but is not at all late because the seminar shouldn’t start until half past two and she cringes on the word sir because she remembers she’s
not at school anymore!
sits at the first seat she comes too and winces as it squeaks under her (over) weight but it’s too late she couldn’t, no, can’t, change chairs now, and she lets her hair hang like a veil as she delves into her bag for her supplies
but pink haired chick
looks just like her
and rubs Lush bubblegum sugar scrub on her lips for the duration of 50minute lectures and people don’t look notice,
no one stares like she’d stared at the girls in high school who’d tap on the pink toned scented sand then dab their rose mermaid tongues across the saturated surface (leave for 20minutes to develop) and boys would ask to borrow it but then not put it on their own mouths but the angel smooth surface of the girls parted lips then lick it off!!!
Amanda’s mum said £5 for a tub of
grainy pink gunk is childish.
Aloe vera is all my mother ever used.
You only want it because you can eat it, Amanda’s brother sniggered, fatty,fatty,fatty,fatty
Pink haired girl
doesn’t care what people think, doesn’t care doesn’t even fucking care when they
laugh and poke fun or even when they
don’t laugh or poke fun or even fucking notice at all
doesn’t give a flying fuck. They will notice
there’s a new girl in the seminar group (new girls are supposed to be hot and exciting a cute boy will scribble me a note on a scrap of lined paper to meet him by the lockers)
why has no one noticed
Pink haired chick is sitting in her chair with pink hair and pink sugar scrub and a laminated pink folder with a button that goes pop! when opened or closed like the noise of cherry flavoured lollipops popping red and ripe from between a sweet girl’s lips
Amanda had never popped cherries but
Pink haired chick
flicks her rose scented cherry pop fairy dust angel kiss locks over her shoulder accidentally-on-purpose hitting the boy with the shoes
pink haired chick blushes like Amanda but noticednoticednoticednoticednoticed
the folder pops!
