.A New Me.
 Chapter 3 
I awoke early from my annoying alarm clock ringing in my ear, this didn't happen regularly as I never had a set time to get up. Urgg, I hated getting up early for school but now this is really taking the mick. I feel slightly sick, maybe feelings of nervous and mainly the fact that I never have been to college before.
As I walked downstairs dressed and ready to go, I realise that I wasn't going alone, I had asked Stevie to come along with me, only because I knew I would make a fool out of myself and need some support.
"Morning Stevie" Stevie looked at me and smiled slighty, she hadn't been up so early as well, But she insisted on coming with me and also driving me. As we drove out and into the town, I had a sick stomach, I hated school, how was I gunna' cope with College? Miranda calm down, chill its just an open day.
The Car ride took forever and Stevie was driving like a Granny, So I kept myself looking out of the window and try to think about some-else. I t was weird because I never get nervous as much as today.
"Miranda we're here" Those Three words sent a chill down the back of my spine. As we Walked into reception I instantly turned red, There were good looking us everywhere, I whispered into Stevie's ear "What on earth? Is it me or a lot more men like the course than we do?" She simply nodded her head, not even listening to me. I slowly made my way to The Queue where people were signing in, I stood there trying to look cool and not nervous, but Gave myself away by Constantly moving around.
"Next?" Before stood A Woman in a smart suite, taking down names. "Hello, Welcome to 'East Surrey College. Name?"
"Oh Miranda" I tried to stop myself from shaking, whilst Stevie told her, her name, we walked through and looked around. I felt out of this place, there were young teenagers everywhere. I mean there were people my age in the course I am doing but still. It didn't feel right.
"Miranda Look" She pointed her finger to wear an Middle-aged man stood. I hoped that she was wrong but I needed to know if it was or not.
"How can you be sure its him?"
"Well he' Name says Aiden, your mum said his name was Aiden." I shrugged my shoulders and went into a sulk.
As I were walking around with the group, Stevie chose to A Man walked towards me. I couldn't tell if he was from my course or if was working here, He wore No Name badge.
"Hello, Enjoying the tour?"
"Well I wouldn't really say Enjoying, More like bored to death, when if this bloody fella' ganna' show up?"
"He's bloody late, what a surprise, I saw him heading towards the canteen; food always gets the better with men. They are all the same." I was getting really annoyed now.
"oh" He started to laugh from a little to a lot.
"Whats funny?" Wow I was actually talking to a man, who was not bad looking at all.
" Nothing, Nothing. I'll be back in a minute" Then He was gone like that.
Stevie walked around the corner, and smiled at Miranda, The head of the course was going to do a speach, if he ever turned up. We sat down and waited, until A man walked out onto the stage. I instantly looked up at the Guy and saw it was the exact same one who I was just talking it, Great!/
I tried to get Stevie's Attention. "Stevie, that's the guy I was talking too!" I said in a whisper. But she couldn't hear me. "I thought he was on this course"
The man with the microphone said. "Everyone I'd like you to meet your Course Leader Aidan Marshall" Oh Crap now I was in trouble. Why hadn't I thought, that the man in a suit would be the Course Leader and manager. Now I stood up and walked over to Stevie. "We got the wrong person Stevie"
"Well seems the people who are looking to be on this course are Nice. And Don't worry I will never be late, cause of the canteen" Now I really did look like a tomato, I couldn't stop myself from going red.
I swear a should get a book called Miranda's Embarrassing Moments, or Miranda's world records of embarrassing moments.
After an Hour or so had been, the touring and talk were over and we could chat to the course leader, this had me nervous as I had called him fat by implying being late from a canteen. Great. As I got closer and closer to the room, my heartbeat was thumping louder and louder in my ear, I had sweaty palms and just wanted to get this over with. What would happen if I did say sorry? Change the subject, get kicked off this course?
As I stumbled over to the chair to sit opposite him, He was trying not to laugh.
"Aidan" I was very embarrassed, he was never going to let me on this course now. Great, What would I tell mum now? But I tried to act normal.
"Miranda, Why have you chosen this course?" Cause of you of course ha-ha. I wish I'd have told him that.
"Urm...I love Kids"
"Do you have any?"
" 2 Little Boys"
"Urm...Urmm... Jonny and Depp" He looked at me in a confused way, How stupid was I, Jonny and Depp? Really?
"I'm a massive fan, Go pirates" I gave him a cheesy grin and smiled.
After a long talk, he finished asking all of the questions he needed to, and walked off, He turned around to look back at me.
"I think you will be a pleasure on this course, With your personality" And then he was gone.
From the excitement I had to the day, me and Stevie decided to go to the restaurant next door, I was ticking off the boxes in my head.
1. Go to college open day
2. Get Tottie with the hottie
3. Maybe get into college cause of this
4. Impress Gary
5. Kiss Gary.
Wow that's a lot of things on the list,but saying that once I get there I will forget them. As I walked in confidently, with a massive Grin on my face. Penny ran up to Miranda and she made the annocement.
"Mum, I think I might have got into College"
"Go Miranda." Everyone applauded, Which then I couldn't help but take a bow.
"Really?" Clive replied.
" Yes Clive, He said that he would be is pleasure teach me!" I laughed, Well that's what he kinda' said.
"Miranda, I'm so Happy for you" I hugged Stevie.
"Come on then? Who's up for a drink" Everybody cheered. Gary was impressed.
So Its 10:30am and I have just got outta' bed. I had a Wonderful Night, and remember talking a bit to Gary.
"Miranda, I'm impressed" I've done it, at last.
"Awh Thank you Gary"
"I mean really impressed" And he came closer and closer edging for my Lips, I could feel his breath on my Lips. What a Perfect moment. But Fairy tales always have there Cock Ups. I mean He is just about to kiss me, when Penny and Stevie run around the corner, Shouting "Miranda bats for the other side." I mean really of all things to shout? That?
Then We split apart, I was red Very Red; Like a tomato, No maybe eve worst, SO I walked out and Gary followed me.
"Miranda its not true is it?" Inside my Head, I was laughing,Seriously?
"No, No ,NO I swear. I like Men with Balls" There was an awkward Silence. Great timing Miranda, Great timing.
"Oh Good" He decided to walk with me, it was sweet of him, considering that I only lived next door.
"Thanks Gary" I said as I stood at my doorway. "I Really don't see why you don't have, have a Girlfriend"
"I dunno, Just haven't met that right girl yet I suppose" I reached for him and gave him a hug and said good night, I slammed the door shut, Every Family has a pain in the Ass.
So back to what today brings, I decided to go shopping with Stevie and Mum, I know it sounds stupid, but if We do get into College - Which Stevie says we are- then I need clothes and where best to start than 'Big and Long'
Big and Long was a clothing shop for the 'Bigger' Woman, they were in the middle of Town and supplied some of the Best clothes In the World, It was just all the brands in bigger sides. I mean We started shopping in A shop Called Short and skinny what a name? and the Woman, -Rude this is- says "This clothes are not your side, your a lot bigger please try something else" and walks behind the counter and talks to her collogue and calls me Fat. I mean I was outraged so I went and pushed all the clothes over. I am now currently banned from that shop. Penny and Stevie just walked away as if I was not with them to embarrassed.
So I walked into Big and Long hate the name but still, the Woman walks to me.
"Hello Madam, How may I help you?"
"I'm just looking thanks"
"OK, well we have loads of clothing which will fit you, You got perfect curves" I was like Thank you and Stevie just looked gone out. You see there motto It 'Never say Fat, Its curves' 'Men dig for Curves' I just laughed when she said that but maybe it was true?
I got out my purse and paid for my clothes which fitted like a tea, and smiled saying goodbye. I mean why couldn't everyone be like that? We got back and had seen what clothes we had all brought. My Mum had brought herself some shoes. Stevie had brought I few tops in the sale and I had brought I complete 2 outfits. We were talking away when The mail man put through the letter box a lot of mail. Stevie ran over to it, it see if the letter from college ha d come, and it did.
I was too scared to open, what happens if I got in? If I did and Stevie didn't? or the other way round? "You Open it" I said to worried to look at it. I watched her open the envelope and see her study the cover of the letter. Her face looked dissapointed and I huffed. Great I thought.
"We're In" Stevie simply Said.
