The City of Love || L.T.

Vanessa is an eighteen year old girl and lives with her mother. She has a best friend called Jade and spends a lot of time with her. They've known each other their whole life and have always been together.

On one day a there's a new boy in their class. His name is Louis and Louis and Vanessa become great friends. Besides the arrival of Louis, Vanessa has something else to think about. They're going on a trip to Paris! She's super excited and so is the whole class. But isn't Paris the city of love?


9. Paris!

Louis smiles at me and chuckles softly. “Are you tired?” he asks and I nod. “Very tired.” I say, smiling lightly. Louis laughs softly and Jade turns to us. “Nessa, just so you know, the biggest bed is mine.” she says, giggling. “Jadey, you know they're the same size.. right?” “I just want the best one!” she says and I laugh at her reaction. “Alright, alright. You can get the best bed.” I say and Jade cheers. I shake my head and get out one of the books I’ve brought me. This one is called The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, I’ve heard it’s a great book. When I’m on chapter four Louis taps on my shoulder. I smile and look at him. “Look.” he says and points to the window. I look out of the window and see the buildings disappearing in the clouds. I smile and take a picture. “What are you most excited for?” Louis asks, smiling. “Definitely the Eiffel Tower.” I say, smiling wide. “Me too! I really want to see what it's like.” “I bet the view is beautiful.” I say and Louis smiles at me. “What are you going to do when we’ve arrived?” I ask Louis, resting my head back on his shoulder. “I’ll probably be doing something with Brian and Andy. What about you?” “Jade and I are going into town.” I say, giggling as Jade turns around. “Yes! We need to look for the best shops and cafés. You can join as at a café if you’d like?” Jade asks Louis. “I’ll ask Brian and Andy.” he says smiling. Jade smiles and winks at me when she turns back around. I laugh softly and close my eyes.

“Nessa, wake up.” Louis says, shaking me softly. I open my eyes and look at Louis. “We’re almost in Paris.” Louis says smiling. I smile back at him and look out of the window. “It looks absolutely beautiful.” I say, smiling. “It really does.” Louis says as he looks out of the window as well. “How many more minutes is it?” I ask Louis, sitting back in my seat. “About ten minutes I believe.” Louis says and I nod. After ten minutes the plane has come to a halt and we can all get out. I grab my bag and we get out of the plane. When we are inside the airport we pick up our suitcases and wait for everyone. “Twenty, twenty one. Alright, everyone is here! The bus is already waiting for us to take us to the hotel, so let’s go!” Caro says and we all walk outside, over to the bus. We get in and when it starts driving Jade gets the cookies out of her bag. She hands me two and passes them to the back. “We really need to look for the best shops! I want some new clothes.” Jade says when she’s taking a bite of her cookie. I nod quickly and take a bite as well. “We do! I really want a souvenir.” I say and smile. Jade and I talk about what we're going to get and eat the cookies.

We arrive at the hotel and it looks very nice. We get our bags and suitcases and go inside. We all get a room key and go to our rooms. The rooms are quite big for just two people. Jade runs inside and smiles brightly. “Ness, this is awesome!” she says as she gets off the bed again and walks over to the window. “And the view is beautiful too!” I laugh softly and run over to her. “You’re right! It looks amazing!” I say and look out. Jade and I walk over to our beds and lie down. “I’m going to love it here.” I say, making Jade laugh. “Who’s it?” Jade asks. I laugh and throw my pillow at her. She catches it and throws it back at me. We both laugh and get our suitcases. We unpack everything and put everything away. We get our bags and put our wallets and phones in them. “You ready to go?” Jade asks me as she wraps an elastic around her ponytail. “I’m ready!” I say and smile as we both go downstairs. “Caro, we’re going to go into town. Is that alright?” I ask Caro. “Of course sweetie. Have fun you two!” she says and Jade grabs my arm, pulling me outside. We walk toward the centre of the town and see a lot of shops. “Ness, look. They’ve got so many cute things!” Jade says as we walk into a clothing shop. Jade looks at some clothes while I look as well. “This would look good on you.” Jade says when she holds up a cardigan and a pink tank top. I look at it and smile. “I love it!” I say as she hands them to me and smiles. “I saw something for you too.” I say as I walk back to a black leather jacket with a grey top. “It looks so cool!” Jade says as she takes it. Together we walk to the fitting rooms and change into the clothes. When we’re both dressed we walk out. “Aww you look so cute!” Jade says and smiles wide. “Do you even know what cute is? Look at you!” I say and Jade laughs. “Come here!” Jade says and pulls me with her a to a mirror. We pose and Jade takes a picture. “Let’s see. Lou, Ro, Alex, Sab, Abb, Meg, Gab, Jess, Nat, Lis and of course Louis.” Jade says and I shake my head. “No way!” I say and try to get Jade’s phone. She giggles and hands me her phone. “You’re too late.” she says and I frown at her. “You’re terrible.” I say and Jade smiles. “I know, I know.” she says and I can't help but laugh softly. We see Jesy, Louise, Natalie and Megan and walk with them.

“Let’s go to that café!” I say, pointing at a cute café across the street. “It looks lovely!” Megan says and smiles. “I’ll text everyone to come.” Jesy says and gets her phone out. We cross the street and sit down. Louise sits next to me and giggles softly. “How are things going between you and Louis?” she asks and I look at her. “Jade told you, didn’t she?” Louise nods and we both laugh. “She’s the worst. But there’s not really something going on. I like him, of course, but I don’t think he likes me to be honest.” “Have you never seen the way he looks at you?” “He looks at  me like he looks at everyone else.” Louise shakes her head and smiles. “I’m sure he really likes you.” I smile at Louise and give her a hug when a few groups walk over to us. They join us and together we order some drinks. “I loved your outfits by the way!” Abby says and everyone agrees. “We should all go tomorrow or on Wednesday!” Lisa says. “We really should!” Alex says. I look at Louis who’s sitting with the boys at the other table. I smile and see Jade’s watching. I quickly look away but I can hear Jade giggling. “I saw an outfit in a little store that totally suits you. We should really go there!” Romy says and I smile. “Really? I’d love to see it!” “I saw it and I seriously said ‘Nessa, you need to see this!’ out loud.” Romy says and we both burst out in laughter. “You’re hilarious!” I say and Romy shakes her head. “It was so embarrassing! Abby and Nat were staring at me like I had gone crazy.” Romy and I keep laughing and Abby looks at us. “You’re telling her the story, aren’t you?” she asks and Romy nods slowly. Abby shakes her head and laughs. “She turned bright red and left the store.” Abby says and I laugh. “I would’ve done the same if I were you.” I say looking at Romy. “Do you still want to go into the store?” Abby asks and giggles. “I’ll buy a fake moustache.” Romy says and we all laugh. 

“Shall we go back to the hotel? I think dinner will be served soon.” James says as he stands up. We all agree and pay for our drinks, walking back to the hotel. When we arrive Caro and Agathe (our French teacher) tell us where we can sit. We all sit down at our table and I’m with Louise, Peter and John. We talk about tomorrow, because tomorrow we’re going to the Eiffel Tower. We’re all very excited and then our food comes. We first get a soup and I ordered tomato soup. We also get a drink and we start eating. When we’ve finished our starter we get our main course. We have a great time and our food is delicious. As dessert we all get a piece of chocolate cake. “This is by far the best chocolate cake I’ve ever had.” John says and we all nod. “Definitely!” Louise and I say at the same time. We laugh and give each other a high five. When we’ve all finished we sit down in the lobby. We talk about what we did today and fool around. When I look at Jade I see that she has fallen asleep. I laugh softly and hug everyone. “See you tomorrow!” I say while waking Jade up. “Are you going with me upstairs?” I ask her and she nods. “Hop on then.” I say and turn around. Jade jumps on my back and I walk to the elevator. We reach the second floor and I open our door. I put Jade on the bed and put the covers over her. Jade smiles and I giggle softly. I change into my pajamas and brush my teeth. When I’m done I get into bed and turn off the light.
