Daisie walked over and sat down next to Lisa. “Lisa, are you alright?”
She didn‘t reply.
Daisie was worried about her, so she placed a hand on her shoulder, but at that moment, Lisa moved it away. “Daisie, let‘s not be friends.”
Daisie was startled and curious. “Why?” Something came to her mind, “Did Leah say something to you?”
Lisa lowered her head and wiped her teass away. “I know that I‘m not from a rich family. My parents can‘t give me anything more than the fees for this school. I just wanted friends. Why.!! Why did they have to say that about me?”
Daisie slowly walked in front of her and knelt down. “Lisa, ignore what they say and think. You know that Leah loves to manipulate people. I only see you as my friend.”
Seeing that Lisa was still crying, Daisie got up because she was angry. “I‘m going to speak to Leah!”
Lisa held her back, “Please, Daisie, there‘s no point. Do you think she will stop targeting me if you speak to her?”
Daisie paused because she made sense.
She had warned Leah not to bully Lisa, but she never listened.
*Daisie, if you think of me as a friend, we should stay away from each other in
school for my own good.” Lisa stood up and left with swollen eyes.
Daisie didn‘t have her dinner. She hid under her blanket and cried her eyes out after returning from school.T

When Maisie brought her food to her room, she placed her cutleries on the desk and pulled up her blanket, “Daisië, you won‘t have the energy to cry if you don‘t eat. You can continue crying after you eat.”
Daisie moved to the edge of the bed, pouting. “Mom, Lisa just wanted to be friends with me. Why did they have to berate her?”
Maisie had heard about the whole situation from Colton, so she sat down next to her.” Daisie, everyone has their own advantages and flaws. No one in this world is loved by everyone. If there are people who like her, there will be some who don‘t.”
Daisie looked at Maisie. “Mom, I don‘t get it.”
Maisie touched her hair and frowned, “Your father, Wayion, and grandpa have really spoiled you, Daisie. Remember, there‘s no way you can buy friendship. A real friend would not want anything from you.
“Friends should help each other. The expensive gifts and beautiful clothes that Wayion and your grandpa gave you shouldn‘t be given to someone eise.
“If you want to give her gifts, you need to work for it. If she doesn‘t accept it, you can‘t insist, or people will think you‘re giving it out like charity and look down on your friend.”
Daisie started worrying, “I didn‘t look down on her!”
Maisie was helpless. “I didn‘t say you did that, but think about it. If you didn‘t keep giving all those gifts to her without thinking if she really wanted them, people wouldn‘t think that Lisa just became your friend to get gifts from you. I know you wanted to help her, but your kindness was misused, and this was your mistake.”
