The saying goes 'There are three versions of the story: his, hers, and the truth'. But the truth can be a make-believe slippery fish swimming upstream, impossible to catch.

That's what I thought was going to be my opening line. But, as it turned out, in November 2018, I was playing the blonde girl with straight hair all along. The mean one, the antagonist.


I started dating a guy my dear friend was infatuated with and she doesn’t talk to me anymore.


Can I blame her? I broke the golden rule of girl code.
