“Your hair's a mess!” her mom said.
“I don’t want to go to a new school!” screamed Ashley, dragging her feet as she walked into the bathroom. “Why can’t I just stay at my old school?” she thought. It felt as if smoke was coming out her ears. 當阿什利坐在巴士上，她看到高大的大廈從眼前流過，路上行人來來往往，準備上班。她看到鳥兒在樹上吱吱叫。她驚訝地看著紐約的市景。「纽约可能不是那麼差。」阿什利 想。
Ashley was on the bus, seeing buildings going by and people getting ready for work. She saw birds chirping on branches. She was mesmerized by how amazing the view was in New York City. “Maybe it isn't so bad here,” she thought. 阿什利上的是中學。大家都花很多時間學開儲物櫃！她感到受挫。幾分鐘後，阿什利還沒打開。她放了手，突然就開了！「真好笑！我没有想到要用拉的！」接著，她進了教室。
Ashley was going to secondary. “Lockers, lockers! They take up so much time,” Ashley thought furiously.
A few minutes later and she still couldn’t open it. She let go. Suddenly, the locker opened! “Funny, I never thought of pulling it!” Then she walked in the classroom. 「有人第一天就遲到了。」老師說。
“Somebody's getting detention on the first day,” the teacher said, sarcastically.
Ashley panicked and thought, “I’m the one late for class!” Students started giggling.
“Here’s your detention slip.”
Ashley nodded her head, then slowly walked to her seat. Everybody’s eyes were on her, she felt mortified.
As Ashley walked home, she was afraid that her mom would be mad at her.
“Why are you late? What happened?”
“Mom, I’m fine! You know that I don’t like to answer a lot of questions.”
But Mom wasn’t sure she was telling the truth. 第二天開始，同學開始說她的壞話，而且很多人笑她。阿什利真想挖個洞跳進去。每個人都盯著她看。全校很快就都知道阿什利是誰了。那天是她一生中最長的一天。
The next day, people in her grade started to laugh behind her back. Ashley wanted a black hole to swallow her up. Everybody stared at her for the whole day. Soon the whole school knew who she was. It was the longest day of her life. 阿什利一回到家，就立刻跑進房間跳上床，哭了起來。她開始回想：如何無法打開儲物櫃、遲到、在全校面前丟臉、被欺負，這全都是在兩天內發生的。她很憤怒。
When Ashley went back home, she ran into her room, crying. She jumped on her bed and started thinking....of how she was so brainless for not pulling her locker, getting detention, getting laughed at and ending up getting bullied. She was angry at herself. 阿什利感覺就像在惡夢中，她在學校再次被人笑，每天都一樣。在英語和數學課之後，她又被欺負了。然後午飯時，意想不到的事情發生了。
Ashley felt like she was in her nightmare again. There she was at school, getting laughed at again. It felt like every day was the same.
After English and Math class, she was bullied. But at lunch, the most unexpected thing happened. 阿什利低著頭安靜地吃著飯，耳邊盡是其他人說她的壞話。
Ashley was silently eating lunch when suddenly she heard the whole cafeteria quiet down. She looked up and saw a girl walking over. She sat at Ashley’s table which had never happened since she started at the new school.
“我是麥迪。妳叫什麼名字？可以跟妳坐嗎？妳可能不認識我，因為我也是新來的！ ” 女孩說。阿什利震驚了，她沒有想到有人會跟她說話，以為她會永遠在孤獨的泡沫裡。
“I’m Maddie. What’s your name? Can I sit with you today? You probably don’t know me, cause I’m new too!' the girl said. Ashley was stunned, she didn’t think anybody would talk to her. She thought she would forever be stuck in the lonely bubble. 「嗯...好吧？」阿什利說。 “我的包裡有一條好朋友項鍊，我可以把它帶過來！我很高興我們可以在三天內找到好朋友！“麥迪興奮地說, 然後给阿什利看項鍊。
“Of..uh..okay,” Ashley mumbled.
“I have a BFF necklace in my bag, and I can give to you! I’m so happy. We can be best friends in three days at school!” Maddie said excitedly and showed her the necklace. 麥迪拿一枝筆給阿什利並寫上了阿什利的名字。他們都笑了，並把筆掛起來。阿什利的心是綠色的，而麥迪的心呈綠藍色。 “我好喜歡！”阿什利說。
Maddie handed Ashley a sharpie to write her name on it. They gave each other a warm smile and put it on. Ashley had half a heart with an ombre color that was green. It joined to Maddie’s heart which was a green-to-blue color. “I love it!” Ashley said.
From then on, they were best friends. They wanted to be partners in every class. The friendship was always there. it never ended. It was just a part of Ashley.
