This is so sad. People can be needlessly cruel. I can feel how humiliated you were...and hurt--which is even worse.

In the sixth grade, there was a boy that three of us girls really liked. He was paying me a lot of attention, and then I caught a bad cold and was gone for three days. When I went back to school, it was like he did not even know me. I have never forgotten it. What is interesting, however, is that I moved away to another state, and a few years later moved back to Florida. I ran into that boy again in high school, and he acted very interested, but I had no desire for encouraging him in any way at all. Life can be so strange.

    Thank you for this empathetic review. I can relate to your story as well. I learned a lot that night. I was super cautious from then on as I'm sure you were. It's almost as though some people are on stage and they can turn it on and off like actors.

Ouch. Well THAT hurts! I think each of us has a secret betrayal or rejection from our childhood that sits like a stone in our heart. It's that FIRST humiliation that stings. The realization that sometimes this world can be cruel indeed.--Karenina

    Yes, lessons learned through pain. Teenagers seem to run into them often. It helps as we grow to know the duplicity of others.

    There is plenty of duplicity to go around... It's never easy to learn of it so early in life!--Karenina

Awe-this is pretty dang heartbreaking. You have written about it well even though it still must have a sting in the remembering. Things like this are indeed crushing as a teen.

    They are the lessons learned, painfully. Thank you so much for your empathy.

I absolutely feel the pain you felt in that rejecting moment. I don't think anything compares in our lifetime to the rejections we received in high school. " You'll get over it" we're the worse words one could be told at that time, and no I won't!

Funny how 50 some odd years later... we're over it...

Good luck in the contest.

    More like 70 years later and it doesn't hurt anymore because that night taught me the best lesson of my life. How to be a trusted friend.
    Thank you for your wonderful empathy.

Rejection from people who you thought were friends can be the hardest, I've experienced this myself as well and it still hurts now when I remember this. But it does show you as well who your true friends are. A well written piece. Good luck in the contest.

    Thank you Jacob. You've hit the nail on the head. It was a painful lesson, but I learned about trust that night.

Wow, how rude. Luckily, you found out he wasn't the character you thought he might have been. Sadly, we never know the inner thoughts and feelings of anyone, or what to expect from them. This one smacked me in the stomach and I wasn't even there. Thanks for sharing.

    Well at fourteen it was a painful lesson learned about trust, that night.

What a jerk. Obviously he never explained or apologized. Never fear or worry, as I believe that divine justice has a way of catching up with us all, he will no doubt get his, maybe many times over and just maybe he will recall his callous treatment of someone who thought of him as a friend.

    That is eventually what I thought. In the meantime I learned a lot about trust that night.
    Thank you for your wise review.

This one-hundred-word, true story, No Thank You, will probably remind all the readers of that Oh Shazbah moment when what we thought was happening was suddenly not. The moment of understanding is typically jolting and will be one of the top fifty memories that we have to relive in the end.

Oh Raffaelina, what an awful experience. What a crud he was, as well as very bad mannered. No one ever refuses in that kind of dance. I can imagine how you felt - it can rob a person of their confidence. Best that you ceased being involved with him. A good, honest posting - good luck, regards Dorothy xx

    Thank you. Your empathy in this review is well received, but, I learned so much about trust that night, I was somewhat grateful in the end.

It was not a simple rejection, he was plain rude. If he were better brought up, he wouldn't have responded this way. He should have consented to be tagged or invented something very polite not to hurt your feelings. I think you were better off without him. This man had no manners. It just got me outraged. Don't even give it a second thought, it's not worth it.

A very well written story, with a great descriptive imagery and visuals. Thank you for sharing a fragment of your past with us. It read very well and I think would do extremely well in the contest.

Good luck, love, Muse.
