Her gym teacher, Mrs. Wallace tried to encourage, saying that with her legs she’d make a great ballerina if she’d put in the effort to learn. But she was 14 years old all ready – what dance studio would want a gangly girl for a student?
Once she was invited to a slumber party, but when she got there she found out she was just invited on a dare – the others teased her all night long. When she asked them to stop, they said they would tell everyone she was a crybaby.
She sighs now as the Quarterback, Don Maloney; blonde hair, blue eyed wonder – approaches Greta, his female counterpart. They hug and kiss and act so madly in love with each other. Sandra wonders what will become of her – nobody dates a giraffe, nobody likes a loser it didn’t matter that she was smart and talented. She was tops in her oil painting class and first in the debate team, but these things spelled out nerd.
She leaves for her next class; no one even acknowledges she exists. It hurts to be invisible. She wonders how much more she will endure before she falls completely apart. Her parents say to ignore it and concentrate on her school work that someday those kids will be nothing and she will be successful and there will be a young man who will find her worthwhile. She wants to believe them, but somehow those days seem too far out of her grasp – what she really needs is a miracle from God – one that will make her beautiful and outgoing with one touch of His hand, but for now she’d have to just hope God didn’t find her invisible too
