|Zoe fancied this boy, but she was beggining to think she was wasting her time. Then found out there was a party and he was going to be there. All she had to do now was find something to wear. Was she wasting her time going after him? She was about to find|
Zoe was fed up. Why did all the boys she liked just happened to have girlfriends. It wasn't fair. All she wanted was a boyfriend. There was on boy – Darren, but for some reason, she thought he was gay. She only saw him with other boys. So she asked a friend. ‘How should I know?' That is what she replied. ‘Oh, come to think of it, I've never seen him with a girl, only his sister, so maybe he is.' Zoe was no wiser. She didn't know what to do. Then she heard there was a party, and she knew he would be there. So, she asked her friend if she would go with her. ‘Yeah, go on, then. I'll come to the party with you. Then we might find out if Darren is interested in boys or girls, won't we?' ‘Yeah, course we will, Claire. He doesn't look gay. Mind you, I haven't got a problem if he is. It is just that I fancy him and if he is, he won't want to go out with me, will he?' The night of the party wasn't far away. Zoe was wondering what to wear. She wanted it to be something special, so she went looking in the shop windows in town. She spent a long time just walking around from one shop to another in the high street. She just couldn't make her mind up, so she went to the shopping centre on the other side of town. It had only just opened. There was bound to be the odd bargain. After all, she didn't have much money to spare, so she had to make every penny count. While in the shopping centre, she was convinced she saw someone she knew. It looked just like him. It had to be him. So she made her way up to him and tapped him on the shoulder. ‘Hi,' he said to her after turning around. ‘Hi, Darren. Are you going to the party tomorrow night?' ‘Yeah, are you? I'm looking forward to it. It should be fun. I haven't been to a party for ages. Hey, fancy a coffee?' Zoe looked at him. He was asking her to go for a coffee. At least that was a start. They spent ages just chatting and talking as thy sat drinking their coffee. She thought he seemed fun. He certainly made her laugh. She hadn't had such a laugh in ages. She just kept wondering what would happen on the night of the party. Would they end up just being good friends? That was the last thing she needed. After leaving the café, she said goodbye to Darren and that she would see him at the party. She couldn't wait. But she still had to find something to wear, then she saw something in a charity shop window. It was only eight pounds. Where would you get a dress like that for eight pounds? It was perfect. She just had to go inside and try it on. And it is what she did. And she found out it was a perfect fit. The night of the party arrived, and Zoe went to get herself ready. She couldn't wait. She was so looking to the party and to seeing Darren. She liked him so much. When Claire called for her, she grabbed her bag and made her way to the door. ‘You, looking forward to it?' she asked Claire. ‘Yeah, course I am. Where did you get that dress? You look amazing.' ‘Out of a charity shop for eight quid. Not bad, hey?' ‘Eight quid. You are winding me up. You can't get a dress like that for eight quid.' ‘Well, I did. I've even got a receipt to prove it, if you don't believe me.' ‘I believe you.' Click here to read the rest of this story (45 more lines)
