Rosie was just about to make her way to work when she heard the trill of her phone. ‘Hi, it's me, the voice said after Rosie had answered. ‘Oh, Emily, I hope it is not important? I'm on my way to work.' ‘So you don't want to know what I've heard, then?' ‘Go on, I'll keep talking to you as I rush for the bus, but I'm late already, and you know what my boss is like when it comes to timekeeping. He's worse than my dad and that is saying something. So, go on, what do you have to tell me?' ‘It's about Ryan.'

While in her room she phoned Emily. ‘Thought you said Ryan was going to ask me out,' she said to Emily, once Emily had answered her phone.' ‘Well, according to Lee he was.' ‘Yeah, that worthless boyfriend of yours never gets anything right.' ‘Don't you talk about him like that?' ‘I'll talk about him how I like,' Rosie said before ringing off without saying goodbye. She was furious. But she had just had enough. She never liked Lee at the best of times, and why did Emily want to go out with him? He was bone-idle, wouldn't work and spent too much time in the pub drinking. With her looks, Emily could have got anybody and she had to pick him to go out with. Rosie decided to go to bed early. She ended up crying herself to sleep.
