Leyla knew that wasn't who Becca really was. Then one day, Leyla was finally done. She couldn't handle it anymore. "I don't want to be your friend anymore, you never pay any attention to me!" But Becca wasn't listening. "Do you think Kate likes me?" She asked Leyla absentminded. Becca tried harder and harder to be Kate's friend. Finally Kate told Becca that she didn't want to be friends with her. So Becca stopped trying. Then, she finally noticed Leyla wasn't talking to her anymore and she realized what she had done. She didn't even become friends with Kate and now she had lost her best friend in the process. MORAL: Don't change yourself for someone else.
