I looked at her; she'd offered me to come out with Vance. It seemed fun, a lot better than moping at home, thinking about what had happened. "Yeah, I might as well. But I should really go get some clothes first...so I’ll just meet you for the cinema?" I looked down at my book again and looked back up, "I live in my own flat, so I'll meet you at yours or something? If you tell me where you live." I felt a bit like a freak, asking her where she lived when we hadn't talked to each other in a week. She didn't seem as angry as I thought she would be with me. "By the way happy birthday." It felt better to say it in person. I wiped my eyes with one of the tissues out of the packet she gave me. I didn't know what I was going to wear; I hadn't actually many dressy clothes, due to not being asked to go out places. And judging Vance and Quintessa, it was going to be a very Gothic place. I decided on going straight to buy some Goth clothes, once school was over. "Thank you...by the way. Thanks." I said, looking at her and smiling.
It was soon the end of school, I had stayed out of Scarlett's way, but I had heard she was looking for me. She probably still didn't know that I had seen her with him. I made my way through the crowds of kids, pushing their way out of the main entrance. As soon as I was free, I made my way to buy some clothes. There was a lot too choose from, but I settled with some ripped black skinny jeans, new red converse, a white top, red tie and black waistcoat.
Christofer agreed to coming to the Cinema with me and Vance." I live on the top of the tallest hill . It’s not hard to miss it’s a big building just head right when you get out of school and you should see it " . The rest of the day went past. In the end of the day I made my way to Vance’s car. We got in and he took me to my house as fast as he could. He stopped outside my house and before I could reach for the door he was out and at the side I was on. He opened the door for me. I stepped out gave him a bow and we both walked inside in laughter. We got into the living room and there in the living room was my mum, dad and my twin older brothers. I sat down on the sofa with them and they handed me their present one by one. I got a load of clothes and shoes and I even got a pair of keys. I wondered what they were for, my dad told me to follow him and I walked outside with Vance’s hands covering my eyes. When we came to a stop he took his hands away and there in front of me was a red lamberguine . It had black leather seats and a big black skull on the front. I couldn’t believe it I gave my dad a big hug and hopped in. I revved up the car, it sounded like a lion roaring. Vance hopped in the passenger seat and closed the door behind him "Wow, You’ve got a better ride than me. I’m so jealous “I smiled at him my biggest smile I had given in ages. “Now, for my gift." He pulled out a small rectangle box; it was red velvet and on top was a single silver bow, he opened it and their inside was a metal chain with a red rose on the end. It was the colour of blood and in the middle of the rose was a big diamond. It was beautiful. I gave him a hug and didn’t let go for ages. "It’s so beautiful. It must have cost a load”. He smiled took it out of the case and held it up. I turned around and pulled up my hair . He tied it round my neck carefully. It rested nicely on my pale skin, It was the best thing I had ever gotten. Today was an amazing birthday for me but a bad day for Christofer , I soon got out of my car locked it and gave Vance a hug bye "See you soon and remember to look your best for tonight" . He waved at me as he speeded out of my drive way. I went into my house to get ready for tonight.
I ran home, holding two bags full of clothing. I had also purchased a microwave dinner and bought Quintessa a present. As soon as I returned home, I started to get changed, straitening my hair, It took me awhile to make sure I was fully ready. I put on some eyeliner, in hope that it'd make me look more the part and then set off - present in hand - to Quintessa’s house. It wasn't time to be there, but it would take me around 30 minutes plus, to actually get to her house. It was a long walk, and I soon started to get a bit sweaty. I wiped my forehead, before carrying on.
As soon as I got to Qunitessa's house, I checked my phone, 30 minutes early. I shrugged, shoving it back in my pocket, and knocking on her front door. Quintessa wasn’t who answered, but in fact a pair of similar looking boys. Twins, I thought, they greeted me and let me into their living room. The house was great, much better than my shitty flat. I sat down on the sofa, next to Vance. He was the only one I actually knew. We had a small conversation about what was going to happen tonight, before Quintessa walked in the room. Vance's eyes practically fell out, his mouth dropped. I let out a little laugh, but felt it was inappropriate at the time.
Quintessa’s P.O.V :
I had been in the shower and everything was ready laid out on my bed. I dried myself and pulled out my new black corset dress with a tutu finish. It looked like something a gothic ballerina would wear. I took out my hairdryer and sat myself in front of my dressing table, turned my hairdryer on full and dried my hair. It was dry in minutes. I had half an hour before I was meant to be ready. I pulled on my dress and asked my mum to pull it in as tight as possible. It was so tight I looked stick thin in the end. I plugged in my curlers and started curling my hair. I was finished in 15 minutes and my hair was done. All I needed to do was, add my make-up and shoes. I took out my darkest eyeliner and put it on. I wore my signature red lipstick as well. I pulled on a pair of red knee socks and my black wedged shoes. I finished everything off with the necklace Vance got me, a big birthday badge saying 17. I had a tiara in my hair and it was filled with black jewels. I walked down the stairs and into the living room where the rest of my family, Vance and Christofer was waiting.
Everyone looked at me and I could feel my cheeks flashing red. I was shy usually and never flashed this much skin but it was my birthday.
