10. Shopping...And the 'News'
"This one makes me feel old" I groaned as I stared at myself in the mirror. I was wearing a black and white dress with long sleeves and a train. "It's ancient" Cody added, Brittany nodded in agreement while Nemo just sat there and rolled his eyes. "I'm a guy, I don't know what I'm doing" He argued. "Figured" Cody mumbled, He slapped her lightly. I went back in the change rooms and changed back into my tank top and shorts.
Walking back out, I saw Dad wearing a suit and Nemo investigating it. Cody nudged me and whispered; "Why the actual..." She grimaced for a word that wouldn't be swearing..."Tree is Dad wearing a suit?" I shrugged, "Dunno." He noticed us staring and walked towards me, "Um I just got a call from your year advisor, He invited me to your formal" He bit his lip nervously. My eyes bulged and I started gaping. "No...Dad...Tell me your joking" I crossed my fingers hoping it was just a sick joke, He shook his head. "Noooooooo!" I wailed.
*2 hours later*
We've finally finished shopping for Sel's dress. And let's just say...It looks amazing on her. Anyways Dad bought his suit and now we're heading home...Selena's been quiet the whole ride. For some reason, she seems a little...Nervous about the formal which happens too be Thursday night. Probably 'cause Dad's going...It'll be an interesting night. Brittany, Nemo and I are stayin' in and watching Hunger Games. We'll probably watch Catching Fire aswell...But Dad and Sel are dying to see it so we won't be that cruel.
"You okay?" I whispered to Sel who stared out the window, "Yeah I just...Well I'm shocked really..." She sighed before plugging in her earphone too my ear. I smiled as I listened to my favourite song; Stronger than I was by Eminem. Dad glanced through the rear view mirror and looked at Nemo who shrugged. I don't think they realize why Sel's nervous...They soon will...
So this is just a filler for the actual formal chapter. And I'd like to thank Tayjoyce and R.D.M Goldlight for all there help with the dresses. So you'll see the outfit next chapter which is coming in a few days but I'm legit gonna start now. Byyeeeee
