|Amy is working through her school holidays. Everything is going fine, until her boyfriend decides to go on holiday with his family. Then things improve when she meets Callum, but things don't work out how they are supposed to.|
It had been an amazing summer. Amy had been going out with this boy she'd been working with through the school holidays, but with only a few weeks remaining till the new school term was about to begin, he had gone away with his family to Egypt. She felt unhappy and sad, spending her nights alone, just listening to music. She didn't even want to go out with her friends after her shifts had finished. But then things started to improve when she saw Callum; with his deep-blue eyes and blond hair he was so good looking, but the only problem was that the other girls she worked with just wouldn't leave him alone. Then one night while walking home, she heard: ‘You OK?' as he drew up alongside of her. ‘Yeah, I'm fine,' she answered, trying to play it cool. He may have had all the girls running after him, but she wasn't going to be one of them. ‘What do you do after you have got home from work and had your tea?' He asked her with a quizzical expression. ‘Watch telly or wash my hair. What about you?' ‘Usually hang around with my mates, but tomorrow night I fancy going to the cinema. Do you want to come with us?' ‘Oh, I don't know. I'm Supposed to be meeting a friend tomorrow. Tell you what, I'll let you know at work at work if I can make it'. She was going to play-hard-to-get. She wasn't giving in that easy. Why should she? If he wanted to go out with her, she wasn't going to make it easy for him. She was going to make him sweat. The next day arrived and Amy got to work, and there he was - as good looking as ever. She was going to give him his answer. ‘Sorry, I can't make it tonight. My friend is calling for me. We are going to a restaurant for the evening,' she lied. That night she lay on her bed plotting her next move. What was she going to do? Then she had an idea and she was going to put it into practice the next day. It was bound to work, most of her plans did. She hated failure. Next day she saw him chatting to this girl. She was so envious, then she saw Tom, who, in the past, she never looked twice at. ‘Hi, Tom. Still on for the cinema tonight? ‘she said it loud so everyone could hear. Tom never answered. His face brightened. But after a while he went up to her and told her he'd be there. That night she met Tom outside the cinema. Then, as they were about to go inside the cinema callum came up to her. Tom got embarrassed and walked off. So, Amy and callum made their way to watch the film. ‘So, how did you end up wanting to go out with that loser?' Callum asked as they were about to take their seats ‘How dare you call him that. Maybe I did ask him out to get at you, but what right have you to call him a loser?' Amy stormed out of the cinema. Fortunately, she knew where Tom lived, and she managed to catch up with him before he got inside his front door. ‘Tom, stop. I want to apologise.' ‘You only wanted to go out with me to get at Callum. Get lost.' ‘Oh, Tom, don't be like that. OK, so I did go out with you to get at Callum, but you are a hundred times the person he is. OK? You can take me out again, if you want? And Callum doesn't come into it this time. I promise,' ‘OK, he answered. Click here to read the rest of this story (32 more lines)
