CHAP.7 Beach date
It was lunch time and Susan, Carla, Marie, Liam ad Eliott were all sitting around their table.
" ...so I lifted up my Marry me Taylor! poster and she smiled directly at me." Liam finished. Taylor Swift was his celebrity crush.
" Eliott quirked an eyebrow. " Man, I was holding up the other side of the sign and she was smiling at me. " Liam turned towards him and they launched into an all out battle on who she was smiling at.
Marie leaned over to Susan and whispered," she was probably smiling at some cute little girl standing beside them. " Susan giggled because it was probably true.
" So are you guys going to parent-teacher interviews?" Carla asked the other two girls since the boys were engrossed in their own conversation.
Marie groaned. " I got 40% on my last French test. My parents will kill me. " Susan had fairly good grades so she wasn't worried about that.
" I don't want to think about that. Let's talk about the dance next Friday! Anyone got a date?"she asked and the other two shook their heads. Just then the bell rang.
" Be at my house tomorrow at 7:00. " Carla told the other girls as they walked to their lockers. Marie and Susan nodded.
School was over and Susan, Mattie and their mom were at the dinner table. Susan was pushing her food around on her plate. "Susan, eat your food. " her mother told her. Susan showed the whole piece of meatloaf down her throaght before swallowing. She immediately went into a coughing fit.
When it was clear she wouldn't need an ambulance, Susan asked," Can I leave now?" Susan's mom looked thoroughly disgusted and Mattie was trying not to giggle.
" Fine" her mom relented and Susan jumped up, put away her plate and ran to her room.
Susan leaned against the closed door, eying her closet as though it would come to life any minute. She stalked over to it and whipped open the doors. Susan held out her hand and commanded to the closet ," you WILL give me a cute outfit. The force is with me. " Okay, so it was a bit nerdy but it was worth a try. " Please?" she added as an afterthought when it didn't work. Great, now she was begging her closet. Susan hung her head in defeat.
All of a sudden, her phone started playing Justin Bieber's Baby. " Hello?" Susan answered it.
" I would go with a sundress. " the voice suggested. Susan looked at the number.
" Marie? How did you know I was looking for clothes?" Susan asked into the phone.
" Because I know my best friend. " Marie replied simply. Sometimes it was scary how well Carla, Marie and Susan knew each other.
" I don't even own a sundress. " Susan told Marie.
" It's way in the back of your closet. I saw it last time I was at your house. " Susan walked to the back of her closet and sure enough, there hung a strapless sundress.
" I have to go now, my dad is calling me which means I'm in trouble. " came Marie's voice.
" Maybe he saw how 90% of your math textbook is covered with hearts an boy's names. " Susan suggested playfully and the two girls giggled. Marie didn't even try to deny it since it was true.
" Oh, and I would suggest straightening your hair. It would even out all of the dress' ruffles. " Marie added before saying goodbye and hanging up.
Susan placed her phone on her desk and walked to where the strapless dress was hanging in her closet. She picked it up and scrutinized it carefully. It was white with little purple flowers all over it. It was tight in the waist and poofed out at the hips into little ruffles. Marie expected Susan to wear this?
Susan sighed and put it on. She had to admit it looked good on her. Then she walked over to her bathroom mirror. She successfully straightened her hair and put a bit of it up in a barrette. Susan was surprised she hadn't burned herself. After applying natural makeup, Susan texted a picture of herself to Marie with a sarcastic look on her face. Marie replied with a " go get him, girl! " and Susan giggled at her response.
Then Susan hopped downstairs just as the doorbell rang. " I'm going out " she screamed to no one in particuliar as she slipped on her flats and opened the door. There stood Noah wearing a purple T-shirt and orange board shorts. Susan was suddenly very aware at how dressed up she looked.
"Is it too much?" she asked, motioning to her dress. She realized Noah had been checking her out. This made Susan blush and when Noah realized he had been caught, he blushed too.
