Half a Story: What Never Was

Bad boy Mark, asks out goody-goody Ellie after months of working up the courage. She says no & he feels stupid. That's only half the story.

Ellie makes the accidental mistake of saying no to Mark & thinks that he hates her. That's only half the story.

The fantasy half of this story, watch as the halves make up a whole story.


13. Preparation for the boys

Mark's POV

Tom came round to play video games before the dance. We were playing Planet of Death II, listening to really loud music, when we heard a knock on the door & my big sister, Nacrissa, came in. "Will you two shut up in here? I'm trying to study!" Crissy's in year 11, studying for her GCSEs. Apparently, she's got a science test tomorrow, which could 'affect her whole future'. How mellow-dramatic can one person get? Besides, I was going to ask Tom whether or not I should ask Ellie out. If she says no, mywhole life will be ruined. Reluctantly, we turned everything off & started to talk. "Tom," I said, fear showing in my voice,"I'm thinking about asking Ellie out properly, at the dance. What do you think?" I wanted to be sure Tom would be cool with it. If he stays my friend, that would mean I wouldn't lose any street-cred. "Do it," Tom urged me, "You're Mark Bröthaus! If you can't ask a girl out, no-one can." I smiled at this, a ton of weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Tom then reached into his pocket & handed me a little, black box. "Give this to Ellie, you'll get a yes for sure." I looked inside the box to find... no, I'm going to keep it a suprise. You'll find out soon enough. Tom went into the en-suite, while we got changed. Nothing special, just a plain, black suit & a red tie. I hate those things, they're so itchy, however, I have to make a good impression.. Tom was going to wear the same, except a tardis-blue tie, instead of red. Wow, Brit must be really special to him, he hates ties more than I do. I checked my phone to find one text from Brittany:

AwsomeAtor: Ellie nos ur secret.

What did that mean? Then it suddenly dawned on me. Brit had told Ellie that I like her!

DoubleTrouble911: U told her!!!

AwsomeAtor: No, she red my diary. The entry from wen u 1st told me.

I breathed a sigh of relief. So Brittany HADN'T told Ellie that I was head over heels for her. That means she didn't break her promise. When I turned around, Tom was behind me. "You ready to go, mate?" I nodded. I need to see Ellie to ask her out.
