The Popular Boy— my entry to the Get Published contest

The Idea Description:
He is the golden boy of the college—the football captain, the chairperson of rhe Rotoract Club and also a part of the student council. Everyone was his friend and everyone shut up when he had something to say.
  She wasn’t ordinary either but maybe not as popular as him.
  Obviously she had no defense against Mr. Always Politically Correct’s charms  but then again did she have to be that insecure?
  Or was he just too friendly with every member of the opposite sex?
What Makes This Story ‘Real’:
Usually women are attracted to money, power, attractive looks—not say they’re shallow but I guess we have all had a little thing for the most popular boy or girl in college.
  But what if you get them? You are bound to be a little insecure, right?
 Extract from the story:
“Why are you always seen with that slut?” I ask him, anger evident in my voice. “If there is nothing between you’ll then why do I always—”
  “She. Is. A. Friend.” He grits out. “How many times do I have to tell you that?”
 This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs fromYashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.

  1. I somehow found a couple of your entries on Indiblogger and that's how I stumbled onto your blog. Now I am reading all these posts on your blog but I don't know the Indiblogger link to those in order to vote for you. If you could include each Indiblogger link within the post, that would be a great way to reach back and vote for you! Please consider. Great writing, keep up the good work.
