The missing pieces of me

———————————————

Grace Louise is my real name, but nobody calls me that. They all call me Weezie.

My mother is wrong.

I am good, and kind, but do I have a bad habit of telling lies. I don’t tell lies for a bad purpose. I tell lies to ensure that I am still accepted in school and I tell lies to make people think I’m better than my arch-nemesis, Ruby. Ruby does everything she can to make my life miserable and one day she asked me the million-dollar question, “Where’s your dad?”

I never had an answer for her so I made up some more lies that turned out to be partly true. But, Ruby’s question had sparked a couple more. Who was my dad? Was he bad? Why did he leave us?

I had no answers to any of these questions so I went investigating with one of my friends, Calvin. You won’t believe what I found…
