|Millie leaves school and is set to start a new job - one she doesn't want. Read to find out more!|
Millie was fed up. She was going to go out, but she changed her mind. She was sixteen and had just left school. The best she could do was get a job at the supermarket. What a career move, she didn't think. Her mum and dad had high expectations of her, but they didn't work out. With Millie changing her mind about going out, she decided to watch telly. That is when her mobile rang. 'All right, Millie?' the voice said on the other end. 'What you are you up to?' 'Thinking about that boring job at the supermarket I'm starting tomorrow. What about you, Kayla?' 'Oh, I'm fine. I was just thinking about coming around to yours. You sound like you need cheering up?' 'Tell you what. I'll meet you in town later?' And that is what they did. Kayla was her best mate. She had known her since the first day they had started at infants. They had had some amazing times together, and a few fall outs, but they never lasted long. A few of the fall outs were about boyfriends, but nothing very serious. Later, the two girls met up in town. 'Why are you so fed up?' Kayla asked. 'You are starting your new job tomorrow.' 'I dunno. I expected more out of life. Maybe I should have concentrated more when I was in school. Maybe I would have got more than a boring supermarket.' Next day, Millie started at the boring supermarket. Surprisingly, she had rather a good day, and she seemed to make a few friends. She soon dropped the attitude she started to adopt when she first walked through the door. The following day, when she turned up for work, this lad appeared. She couldn't keep her eyes off him. They ended up working together for the whole day. They had a fantastic time. They even had lunch together. Then, walking home, Millie was in for a surprise, he asked her out. She thought she was imagining things. ‘I dunno,' she said. ‘I'll have to think about it.' She did think about it, then, seconds later, she found herself saying yes. What was she doing? She already had a boyfriend. When she got home it was time for her tea, after eating her tea she was going to change before meeting him in town. ‘Are you going out tonight?' her mum asked her. ‘Yeah, I'm going into town with a mate.' Millie finished her tea, then made her way up the stairs to change before making her way out, but what was she going to wear? She must have gone through the whole contents of her wardrobe, still not finding anything suitable, then she had an idea – she went into her sister's bedroom. She soon found what she wanted in there! Fortunately, her sister hadn't come home from work yet. Leaving the bedroom, then making her way to the front door, her mum came out of the lounge. ‘You are very dressed up for this friend of yours? It's not Mark you are seeing, is it?' ‘No, it isn't,' she said abruptly. She couldn't tell her she was seeing another lad. She'd be wondering what was going on. Millie made her way to the bus stop, unable to stop thinking about this date she was going on. She knew in her own heart she was doing the wrong thing. She arrived at the cinema, and there he was, waiting for her. As they were making their way inside, she had another surprise, Mark was on the other side of the road, staring straight at her. I can't go through with this, she thought to herself, then she left the lad and made her way across the road. ‘What were you doing with that lad by the cinema?' Mark asked her, giving her a strange look. ‘Nothing,' she replied.' Then she said: ‘Having a change of heart.' Under her breath. Fortunately, Mark didn't force the matter. Millie was relieved, but she was even more relieved about not going to the cinema with the lad she worked with. What was she ever thinking of! Check out my website: kenmakepeace.org Tweet
