How can I tell them?
‘Tonight at eight o’clock! Will you be there?’ asks Susan.
‘Allright, I’ll be there at eight o’clock, bye! See you then.’ says Jodie. Susan lays the phone on her bed. She looks at the clock, it’s five minutes past seven. ‘I haven’t got loads of time, I must leave at twenty minutes to eight.’ She walks to her closet and opens the doors. What should I wear tonight? Susan thinks by herself. Not such a long time ago, she wore not the same clothes like girls of her age wore. Because she had a little confidence, and was scared to wear short skirts. She wore dark clothes, like dark blue and dark purple. Now, she’s over that and wears the same clothes like the girls of her age.
She takes a short jeans skirt and a tights. ‘But what shall I wear on that?’ and she looks in her closet. After a long search, she has a pink skirt. She walks down. ‘Oh, I think I must take a shower before I leave.’ And she walks to the bathroom. She does her clothes off. And put the shower on. And steps under the shower. ‘Brr… Bit too cold.’ She turns the shower button a little bit warmer.
After ten minutes she steps out the shower and put her clothes on. She looks in the mirror. ‘I’m actually quite ugly, but whatever. No one’s perfect. She walks to the stairs and walks upstairs. She walks to the mirror in her room and she takes her make-up and makes herself a little bit more beautiful, she thinks.
After that she walks downstairs. In the living room she takes her bag and put her wallet in her bag. While she’s doing her hair in a ponytail, she asks her mum how late it is. ‘it’s a quarter to eight, darling!’ ‘Oh, then I’ll go,’ she walks to her mum and gives her a kiss on her cheek. She walks to the door. ‘Bye, mum!’ ‘Goodbye sweetheart.’ The door gets close.
Susan takes her bike and cycles direction the center. When she is cycling, she hears her mobile phone. She take her mobile phone up. ‘Hi Jodie, I’ll be there about ten minutes, okay?’ ‘Yes, that’s allright. Then we can drink something in the pub, if you like?’ ‘Yes, I’ll see you there.’ She puts her mobile phone in her bag.
When she’s on the place, she is putting her bike against a wall and locks it. She walks to her girlfriend Jodie and they walk to the pub. ‘Hi, it’s a long time ago that we have seen each other.’ Says Jodie. ‘Too long ago.’ Says Susan. And they call the waiter. ‘I’m coming soon.’ ‘Okay,’ and he walks inside.
‘What do you want to order?’ asks the waiter. ‘I want a coke, please.’ Says Susan. ‘And I want a orange juice.’ ‘Allright.’ And the waiter walks away. ‘ Are you going to do some other nice things this weekend?’ asks Jodie. ‘Uh… no, nothing that I know, and you?’ ‘I’ve got a birthday’s party of my cousin Lucy.’ ‘Ah, that’s nice!’ says Susan.
At a quarter past eight they are walking to the cinema. ‘Which film are we going to watch, and how late?’ asks Susan. ‘Uh, ‘The First Thing’ and at half past eight, okay?’ ‘The time is perfect, but where goes the movie about?’ ‘It’s about a girl, but she can only think about one thing, and that’s her ex-boyfriend who has dumped her. And then she makes a song, about him. And that calls; ‘The first thing’ and with that song, she becomes famous. And she will tell the people that if something bothers you, you should express it in poetry and lyrics.’ ‘Wow, to me that seems to be a beautiful.’ ‘Yeah, I thought so.’ They walk inside and buy two tickets. She walks to the right hall. And take the best places. After 10 minutes the film will starts.
After the end of the film, they let you hear the song; ‘The First Thing’.
I’ve got my feet on the ground
But you keep my heart in the clouds
And every day, you know, The First Thing I think of is you
And every night I wanna kiss you, I wish you, we’re still feeling it to
And every dream is all about you
Without you I’m lost
Baby you’re everything that I want
