The Spare - first chapter

(This chapter has a song bc I love musicals so the song lyrics will be in italics and Arianna´s actions will be in bold)


Arianna, called Ari by most, was in her bathroom. She had just finished re-dying her hair brown after it started to fade. She heard her father having a conversation with her older brother. The bathroom walls were a little thin.

´´Why do you let Ari go to a public school and not me?" Adrien asked his father.

"Because she is the spare. You are my star, Adrien." Gabriel, Arianna and Adrien´s father, replied.

Arianna sighed, she knew he was right. She was told she wasn´t pretty enough to be a model, she wasn´t good at anything Adrien was good at, and her grades were average.

Arianna Sighed.

Spare, am I really just the spare

I´m not part of the town, not born to be queen

Just somebody hopelessly in-between

Arianna looked at all the pictures of Adrien that her father had.

He´s the scholar, athlete, poet

I´m the screw-up, don´t I know it

But then who could ever compare

Of course, they´re gonna think I´m just the spare

Arianna perked up.

Well, I don´t care

So I´m the extra button on a coat

In case another one comes loose

Arianna left to walk to school.

But if I have to be a button

Why can´t I be a button that´s of use (oops)

Arianna tripped over the curb

I may lack style and I may lack grace

And once in a while, I fall on my face

But this little button deserves a place in the sky

This button wants to fly

Wait, buttons can´t fly, it doesn´t make any sense

So I´m a rusty horseshoe hanging up

Over somebody´s old barn door

And I´ll be hanging there forever

Just wishing the horse had one leg more

Arianna looked at the pictures of her brother modeling all over billboards

And maybe I can´t be the perfect one

And maybe I err on the side of fun

But horseshoes need a chance to run somewhere

This horseshoe is more than just a spare

Someday I´ll find my thing

A thing that´s all my own

That thing that makes me part of something

Not just all alone

If only all this feeling I have in my heart

Could mean something to someone, how I´d love to play that part

So I´m just the second-born sibling

Who most of the town ignores

Like a button, like a horseshoe

Like a girl who´s bad at metaphors

Maybe I don´t have a magic touch

And maybe I don´t have a talent as such

Just this heart with much too much to share

So I´ll never be the heir

Arianna accidentally tripped someone.

I´m more than just the spare (sorry)
