I miss my old friend, but will a new boyfriend make things better... and will the love last? I just want to know the secrets of the past, and the secrets of my mum and my aunt - the twins that never got on.

With secrets, lies and the twists and turns of life, Esme will discover the mysteries that you don't even find in stories.


8. Hot Date

Sunday 17th November

I still can’t believe it. Today was great. No, it was amazing. In fact, there are no words good enough to describe it. Aiden asked me to go on a date with him.

We went to the cinema. It was so romantic. He let me choose the movie, but after considering his feelings, I came to the conclusion that he wasn’t in the mood to watch a chick flick. He’s a boy… a romantic film probably wasn’t the ideal choice.

So I picked Skyfall, the James Bond movie. He was so relieved when I suggested it, and to be honest, I actually really wanted to watch it anyway. We bought popcorn as well. I said I liked salt, but no one else normally liked it so I said I didn’t mind if he got sweet. But he liked salt. So that was settled.

It was a classic cinema date. He held my hand in the popcorn (romantic but a little awkward) and when Bond kissed the girl, Aiden kissed me, for the first time… Oh, the satisfaction!

Then we went bowling. I got extra – competitive, and I won! He was quite shocked, but we just laughed for minutes on end and hugged each other. Then we sat in Pizza Express and chose what we wanted. I opted for the pasta – cheese strings hanging on your chin in a date, NOT a good look.

We hopped onto the X64 bus back to my town, and Aiden walked me back to my house. Aunt Mira wasn’t too happy about this. Not just the date, but the whole relationship. She doesn’t approve of boyfriends. Not until I’m 16, at least.


When I got home, I got out Aunt Mira’s diary. I’m not going to bother copying out anything; there isn’t anything of interest written. I don’t think much happened when Aunt Mira was 12. She didn’t write much in her diary. Then again, I don’t think she wanted to.

What a great day. Life can surprise you sometimes… just when you’ve got everything figured out, something jumps out at you, changing your world forever.
