And she is pretty ( stop hating mv118 your not pretty I saw your pic) maybe she is a [email protected]@@@, but most of the pretty girls are. I bet you if we put your pic and her pic together and ask people, – who do you think is prettier?. Who do you think will win, of course her!!!so there you go;).
