My friend said she's stupid. I agreed, but I told my friend not to tell anybody I said that. Instead of telling nobody, my friend told one of her friends. Then her friend told a few other people.
By lunch time, everybody heard. I tried not to pay attention to it too much because I felt bad. I tried ignoring it the next day and the day after that. A few days after I started the rumor, I decided to actually talk to the girl I started the rumor about.
I found out that she really isn't stupid. She was just having problems in school because grandmother passed away. I felt terrible. I couldn't tell her I started the rumor, but I did start talking to her more.
Now we're good friends, and I don't know how I can ever tell her about the rumor I started.
