No She’s Not!

    “No She’s Not!” Friend, Oct. 2003, 44

    “No She’s Not!”

    One day after school I got on the bus to go home. As the bus neared my stop, a girl from school yelled, “Hey, Kaycie!”

    “Yeah?” I said.

    “Allison is a loser!”

    I felt really bad inside, because Allison is my cousin. We live across the street from each other, are the same age, and play together a lot.

    I thought about what Jesus would do, and answered, “No she’s not! She’s my cousin, and I love her.” I felt that I had done the right thing, and it made me feel good inside.
