Well it's my birthday today and I'm twenty-one! As soon as I woke up, I checked my phone; I had a shit ton of text messages, my mentions on Twitter were flooded and a bunch of Facebook notifications.

"I'll check those later," I said to myself.

I jumped out of my bed and ran to the bathroom. Today is gonna be a good day. I took a long, hot shower, brushed my teeth and went back in my room to get dressed. I put on dark denim shorts and a white loose fitting v neck. I put on my white converse, got my keys, wallet and phone and left the house. I was gonna get my tattoo today.

When I got to the tattoo & piercing shop, I went straight to the back to see my friend Abby. She does all my tattoos and she's the only one I'll let put a needle to my body.

"Abbyyyy!" I yelled.

"Hey baby! Happy birthday!" she said running over to give me a hug.

"Thank you honey!"

"So what are you getting today?" she asked.

"I want this on my side," I said handing her the template. It was the words "I love you" in the shape of an infinity symbol in my parents' handwriting.

"Aw, this is cute!" she said setting everything up.

"Thanks," I said lying on my side.

I heard the machine turn on and I felt the needle on my skin. After some time she finished and I looked in the mirror to see how it looked.

"It looks so good! Thank you babes," I said giving Abby another hug.

"No problem girl! Are getting anything else done today? Maybe another piercing?"

"I think I'll finally get my nose pierced today," I said walking to the front.


I sat in the chair and Abby stood in front of me with the piercing gun. I felt a light pinch and it was over. I looked in the mirror and saw a small stud in my nose. Cute.

"How much do I owe you?" I asked.

"Don't worry about it. Think of it as a birthday present from me," she said putting arm around shoulders.

"You sure?"


"Alright. Thank you! Bye."

I left the shop and when I got in the car, I got a text from Monique.

nique nique 😘👯💕: meet me at my house

I went to Monique's house and went inside.

"Hey!" I said walking into her room and flopping on her bed.

"Happy birthday lovely," she said.

"Thank you doll face!"

"Oh my god you got your nose pierced!" she said grabbing my face.

"I sure did," I said sitting up.

"And another tattoo?" she asked pointing to the bandage.

"Yes ma'am."

"You've had a busy morning, I see. Well I wanna take you shopping. You're gonna need a new dress for tonight," she said getting her purse and keys.

We left her house and went to the mall. We went in this store that had some nice dresses.

"What kinda dress you think I should get?" I asked.

"The sluttier, the better!" she said kinda loud.

"Well okay then," I laughed.

I picked out two dresses and had her decide.

"Which one - black or pink?" I asked holding them both out.


"Like my soul," I said.

We both laughed and I went to try it on. It was a one shoulder, bat wing dress that stopped like two inches under my butt and it was very form fitting. I stepped out of the dressing room to show Monique.

"How does it look?" I asked.

"You look sexy! If I were gay, I'd fuck you," she said winking at me.

"Well...alright," I said laughing.

I went back in the dressing room, changed out of the dress and walked out. I went up to the register to pay for it, but Monique stepped in front of me and paid for the dress.

"You didn't have to do that," I said as we walked out of the store.

"Yes, I did!"

When we went back to her house, I put the dress in the car and went back home.

I got in my house, hung the dress up and lied across my bed for a minute. I had nothing to do right now and we don't leave for another eight hours. I guess I could find something to do. Ugh, I just can't wait until later.
