The Non-Society Girl

Jassy - short for Joselyn - is being forced. It isn't her choice. She really does not want to be a society girl. She doesn't want to dress fancy and go to dinner parties and dance fancy and proper. She just wants to live her life like any ordinary teenager. But, she's not getting the option. So when her mother threatens to take away her internet, phone and laptop, she agrees. And gets more than just sitting in the corner with her bff when said bff leaves and she's asked to dance. By a pair of cute, identical twins. Names? Jack and Finn Harries.


2. Plan

She pulled the car up in front of the hall and smiled at me. 

"Get on in there, Jassy. And have a wonderful time. I'll be back here to pick you up at midnight!" She called as she drove away. I sighed as I turned and joined the mob of people filing in. This was going to be an interesting night. 

As I followed the crowd inside, I pulled my phone out, earning myself some weird looks in the process. After opening up messages, I clicked on Maia, the name of my best friend. 

Where R U???? 

Inside. I will B @ the punch bowl. Find me ;) 

I rolled my eyes and when I finally got into the hall and pushed my way through the crowd. 

"Jassy! You look dashing!" I laughed at her choice of words. I'd finally made it to the punch bowl. 

"And so do you, Miss Maia." I smiled at her. Not that I was wrong. She was wearing a long silver chiffon gown that hung loose over her figure, it had a similar design to mine. 

"Thank you. Now, do we stand here and wait for people to ask us or do we get out there and dance with each other?" 

In answer, I held out my hand. "May I have this dance?" She smiled and took my hand and we walked into the dance floor and put our hands on each others shoulders and danced like sixth graders. We were giggling and laughing. "Can I put my phone in your little pursey thingy?" I asked and she nodded and I slipped it in. "Thanks." 

We were still dancing when a tall blonde stranger came up and tapped Maia on the shoulder. "May I cut in?" He asked, like a perfect gentlemen. 

"Of course. Find me later." I told the last part to Maia and walked off to the far side of the hall, where I leaned against the wall next to a brown haired boy that looked to be around the same age as me, maybe a year older. 

I tapped my fingers against the wall, wishing I had my phone. 

"Your friend ditch you?" The brown haired boy asked me. 

"Hmm? Oh, no. She just got asked to dance, I'm just waiting for her." 

"Oh, I see. Yeah, my brother asked someone to dance. So I'm doing the same as you." 


"I'm Finn."


"I said, I'm Finn." 

"Oh, I'm Jassy. Nice to meet you Finn." I smiled at him and turned my attention back to the dancers. 

"Would you like to dance?" 


"Would you like to dance? Just to pass time till your friend and my brother are done." 

"Oh, uh, sure." He took my hand and led me out into the middle of the dancers and out one hand on my waist and one hand in mine as I place one hand on his shoulder. We danced like everyone else, for a while. 

"So, uh, Jassy, what brings you here?" 

"My mother. She made me come, I didn't really want to. But she keeps trying to put me into these classes to make me more sophisticated and fancy, but I keep refusing. She said she'd cut off my phone and internet if I didn't go... So here I am." I told him, looking at him and really seeing him. He had beautiful green eyes dotted with little flecks of brown. "What about you?" 

"Oh, uh, well, my mother wanted my brother and I to get out more since my brother basically lives in his computer." 

"Cool. Better than my mom." I told him with a little laugh. 

"You look nice." 

"Thanks. You should see my friends dress, it's way better than mine." 

"I doubt that." 

We fell into an awkward silence as I blushed at his comment. And it wasn't easy to make me blush, but there was something about this guy that made me feel vulnerable and shy. 

"Well, I gotta use the loo. So, I guess this is goodbye..." 

"Oh, okay." He sounded dejected. 

"Here," I un-clipped the orange bracelet and slid it into his jacket pocket. "Take this." I rushed away before he could stop me. 

I did, indeed, go to the loo. I walked in and found it empty. So I walked into the closest stall and sat on seat, regaining myself. This guy was like any other guy in there, why did he make me feel so weird, so shy, so not me? 

Jeez, I would have to stay away from him. That's for sure. But wait... My bracelet! Crap! How was I going to get it back without seeing him again, there's always a flaw! Always! Grr! I'm so stupid, why did I even give it to him? I loved that bracelet. 

I left the loo and re entered the hall, I leaned back against the wall and tapped my fingers against the wall again, when a guy, who looked remarkably like Finn leaned against the wall next to me. 

"Finn?" I asked. He turned and I noticed some differences, he had a more square jaw than Finn. 

"No, I'm Jack. You're thinking of my brother." 

"Oh, sorry." I shook my head and looked down at the ground. 

"How do you know my brother?" He asked. 

"Oh, I um, met him a couple minutes ago. He was waiting for you and I was waiting for my friend." 

"Care to dance?" He asked, holding out his hand. Really? Oh whatever. 

"Uh, sure." I took his hand and he led me out onto the dance floor, putting both hands on my waist while I put both mine around his neck. 

"What brings you to the ball?" 

"Why do people keep calling it a ball? It's not a ball. It's a fancy party." I stated. 

"Sorry, what brings you to the fancy party?" 

I rolled my eyes. "My annoying mother." 

"Ah, mothers. Mine made me come so I'd get out more." 

"I've heard." 

"Yeah. Did I say that you look very pretty?" 

I blushed. "No." Seriously? This guy too! 

"Well, you do. I thought I'd tell you." 

"Thanks." I looked down at my feet. One hand was removed from my waist and lifted my head up. I gulped, if he does what I think he's going to... 

He leaned down and I blurted. "I have to go." I bit my lip and started unfastening the blue bracelet. "My friend will be looking for me by now." I slid it into his pocket and I ran out into the crisp cold air. What was happening? I've never been so... Weak, before. Plan: Stay away from Jack and Finn.
