First day - Lauren

Oh my god! I thought to myself as I looked up at the boy in front of me, Oh my god it's him! Danny Miller! I looked into his beautiful eyes wondering if he would remember me. I quickly looked at the bracelet on my wrist. The bracelet I hadn't taken off since I was eleven. He looked at me and smiled. My heart skipped a beat. Did he remember?

"Hey," he said.


"I'm Danny," he said. I know that! "What's your name?" he asked.

"Oh!" she said as she realised she had been silent for a while, "My names Lauren," yeah! Lauren! Remember me!? I'm the girl you feel in love with in France five years ago then completely forgot about!

"First day huh?" He asked her smiling.

"Yeah. First day. You?"

"Me too!" he replied laughing. It took all my will not to slap him! How could he not remember!? "Hey, nice bracelet! Did you make it?"

"No. This guy gave it to me but he really means nothing to me now." I said through gritted teeth.

"oh, well ok… so you nervous?" he asked

"Yeah, never been more nervous!" I gave him a fake smile. We walked into a dance studio with a load of other first years sitting in chairs in front of a large man in a suit. We sat down and the man, Mr Nugent, began to talk about what we could achieve at Britannia High. Then he asked us all to get up and explain why we were there and what we wanted. This girl called Claudine got up and said she wanted to "Be up there with the greats" I scoffed at this and she narrowed her eyes. It was my turn to get up and, shaking with nerves, I stood up and looked at the rest of the class.

"Hi, my name is Lauren Louise Loretta Waters, big it up for the letter "L"!" shit! Lauren! What the hell was that!? Nice on now you seem like a complete idiot! Stop saying stupid things!!! "Um… anyway, for the past six months I've been touring West Hampshire with "The Dancing Queens" we're and ABBA tribute band, and… um… in the future I just wanna prove that there's more to me than Agnetha. Thank you very much." I added in a Swedish accent. bugger, I thought as I sat down trying to hide my bright red cheeks, nice going on the not saying anymore stupid things plan! the rest of the day just kept getting worse and worse. I was humiliated in dance class because I kept getting the moves wrong, then Claudine lets out that I didn't audition, and then when I got to the house I was staying in guess who opened the door!? CLAUDINE!!! could this year have started any more badly!?
