A/N First chapter, hope you like it.
Amber walked down the busy halls of her local high school. Even though they were streaming with teens the corridor somehow seemed empty in comparison to before the pageant. When Link had broken up with her it felt as if someone had ripped her heart out and chucked it in the fire just to watch it melt. To start with she just used Link as one would use a Bicycle or any other type of toy. But, she had gradually grown to trust and like the boy.
After managing to get through a few classes without breaking down, it was finally lunch! Amber sat with Tammy and Shelley, they were her friends. It felt strange being surrounded by friends and not just mere acquaintances that normally fawned over her. I suppose that's the price you pay for being beyond popular, you never know your true friends!
She looked across the room and saw Noreen and Doreen eating there lunch by themselves too. No one honestly liked the twins any more. On the show all Noreen ever did was bitch and moan about everything, people had come to realise that know and being loyal Doreen stuck by her.
All the council kids had sort of drifted apart, they all had new roles.
Brenda tried to be the new Amber and failed miserably. She would walk around with a few girls who weren't on the show, Riley and Emily, very easy to influence. Every so often Brenda would pass Amber, Shelley or Tammy and every so often would trip them up or give them a sly elbow in the side!
Lou-Anne, Polly and Darla had a little fussy gang and screamed with laughter at everything Fender said.
Vikki and Becky hung around with the Negros and Penny, sometimes Link and the Whale. (tracy)
Penny Pingleton had also changed. She was more confident and didn't hang around with Tracy so much, seemingly not needing her best friend so much. People knew who she was she dated Seaweed, a Negro.
Though she didn't like to admit it Amber was a tiny but jealous of Penny, not in the way she was jealous of Tracy having Link, but in a way that made her look up to Penny almost like her. Amber was the pretty girl who had her heart stomped on by Link Larkin, god she wished she could get over him she let out a big sigh.
"Hey what's up?" Tammy asked.
"Nothing!" she answered, she knew she could trust Tammy, she just didn't know how.
"Of course there's something wrong people don't just sigh at random intervals!" Shelley said.
"Well, it's Link!" Amber replied.
"Link?" Shelley said , a questioning tone in her voice.
"The dancing bastard!" Tammy put in helpfully
"I know who he is" Shelley said, rather snappily if you ask Tammy…but we don't tend to do that soooo.
"I know, I know, I know" Shelley squeaked "we could have big day shopping and totally give you a makeover, amazing".
"Yeah, everyone knows that to move on you need a new look!" Said Tammy
Though she wasn't a hundred percent sure about Tammy's logic she still looked down at her yellow full skirted dress with a sigh. It was time for a change she decided.
She wanted something beautiful, glamorous something that made people (mainly boys) stop and stare.
"Okay Shelley" she said "let's go shopping!"
A/N what do you think? Please review and I'll put the next chapter up. By the way I had to look through the roll call bit on "The nicest kids in town" to get all the council members names. x
