*This is the origin story of a character from my story:”The town of Richardson.” If you want to know what she looks like,go to my wall.I made her in the app:”Gacha Club.”
Once upon a time,during the 90s,there was a young girl named Denise.She was fourteen years old and the most loved girl in her town.
Now,why was she so loved? Because she was the prettiest,smartest,”kindest” girl in the entire town.
In other words,She was the “picture perfect town girl” that appeared often in movies and T.V. shows.
But perhaps she was influenced to be this way from her friends.You see,her friends weren’t the nicest people.They ridiculed others and made other people feel bad to cover up their own insecurities.
She met up with the group when she was a little girl.She’d agreed to be their friends when they asked,because what would they do if she said no? Pick on her? That couldn’t happen!
Besides,Denise enjoyed being loved by all.Who wouldn’t?
Surely,nothing could wrong from here..
A new circus just opened up! A man named Lucas created it.
This should have been of no interest to Denise and her friends,but it was.
A boy from her school was performing there as a clown.
It was rumored that he had a crush on her,Denise.
So,her friends met up with Denise at her house and dared her to date him for fourteen weeks and then embarrass him in front of the whole school by telling him that she never loved him and that he was just a stupid clown.
“Guys,don’t you think that’s rude?” Denise asked.She didn’t like him,but maybe they could do something less heartless?
“No,it’s not! We’ll just be putting him where he belongs! It isn’t rude at all!” They cheered,grinning.
“Oh,alright.But I’m only doing it for four weeks!” Denise said.It’d be cruller if the prank lasted longer.
Four weeks had passed.Denise learned that his name was Gabriel,he was the same age as her,he enjoyed all things drama,he pondered life and adored his little sister,Gwyneth.
He seemed to love her,too.
Gabriel had absolutely no clue that Denise was pulling a trick on him.
Even though four weeks had already passed,Denise decided to go by her friend’s dare and do it for fourteen.She was annoyed with Gabriel’s chattiness and his eternal optimism.Now,Denise wanted to embarrass him in front of the whole school.
It’s what people you find annoying deserve,right?
So,she went on with the dare,tricking Gabriel to make him think that she actually gave a damn about him.
It was on a dark,foggy night that everything would change.Denise was taking a walk in the circus,going on a date with Gabriel.Gabriel hadn’t had time to change out of his clown look,so here he was,looking like a ridiculous fool,walking next to Denise.
She really wanted him dead at this moment.Why must he be so infuriating?! Why couldn’t he be..perfect?!!
As they were taking their walk and Gabriel was enthusiastically and annoyingly chatting (as usual) they found Lucas burying something in the dirt.
“Maybe we should ask him what he’s doing.” Gabriel said.
“But why? It’s something stupid that he’s digging.Why should we care what an old man does?” Denise asked.
“It’s not every day you find someone digging something up in the woods this late at night! It looks suspicious.I think we should go ask him.” Gabriel said.
He really was insisting on asking Lucas whatever the heck he was doing.
Denise put on the fakest smile in existence and said with false,honeyed,over-done,syrupy-sweetness:
“Whatever works with you,Gabriel.”
Gabriel smiled at her and she resisted the urge to roll her eyes.
He walked up to Lucas and asked what he was doing.
Gabriel looked down at Lucas’s feet.Denise walked up next to him,to find out what he was seeing,but he ran as fast as he could and grabbed Denise’s arm.
“W-What are you doing?” Denise asked while running.
“He-He murdered William and Isabella!” Gabriel screamed.
Denise looked behind her.She found Lucas chasing them,with a bloody knife.
Denise let go of Gabriel’s grip and ran as fast as she could.If anyone was dying,it was him.Not her.She was too pretty to die.
Denise and Gabriel finally reached the gates.They were locked,but she could climb out.
When she reached the other side,she could Gabriel was struggling.His clown costume was making it more difficult for him to leave.
He looked at her pleadingly,as if he needed her help.
Denise smiled.Let him struggle.He wasn’t that important,anyway.
“W-What are you doing?! Aren’t you going to help me?!” Gabriel screamed.He looked like he was on the verge of tears.
Denise laughed.It was just so funny watching him struggle pathetically to escape the circus!
His face went dark.He stopped trying to climb out.He stared at her,confused.
“You really thought I cared about you,didn’t you?” Denise asked when she was done laughing.
He said nothing.Good.She liked his silence.
“It was just some stupid dare my friends made me do! It was a really fun dare,though.You’re gross and ugly.You’re better off dead!” She said.It was the truth,it was how she felt.
But he didn’t smile or laugh.He seemed..betrayed? She wondered why he would feel that way.
Maybe he just didn’t have a sense of humor.
“Very funny,Denise.But you’ve got to help me! We don’t have much time!” He yelled.
“Who is we? YOU don’t have much time,not me.” She said,flipping her hair.
With that,she walked away,leaving him to die.
