2. Today is pretty important
Today is pretty important. Its the first ball of the year. We all have new dresses and I can't wait. Dan can't come. I got a text from him earlier. He has a sports club and can't miss it because there is a match coming up. Mia is already dressed and running all over the place, she is so excited. I've put on my dress but need somebody to do the zip up. "Mia!" I call, feeling round for the zip. I get no response. I call Mia's name again and finally I get something. "What?" She asks indignantly. So annoying! "I need you to do my zip up!" I reply. I hear her footsteps pounding on the stairs and she rushes into my room, pulls the zip up vigorously and rushes back out. "Thanks!" I call as I hear the tumble as she falls of the banister, " You idiot!" I call. She is so hyper! I step out of my room and lock the door behind me. The stairs are creaking as I step down them. I feel so nervous and I don't know why.
Mia has her ipod on the dock downstairs. It's one of her horrible bands. "Turn that crap off!" I yell and she sticks her tongue out at me and turns the volume up. I put my middle finger up at her. "Rude!" she yells over the music. I walk over to the cupboard and take out the cornflakes. I pour them into mine and Mia's bowl and add milk. I go and pick up the dock controls and turn the music off and take away Mia's ipod. We eat our breakfast in silence. We get up and I put the bowls in the washing and then the doorbell rings. Mia runs to open it. There is a tall, pretty lady standing there. She has come to do our hair and make-up. She does Mia first. She gives her turquoise eyeshadow and deep red lipstick. Mia's hair is put into a bun with crystal flowers in. Simple but elegant.
The lady then starts on me. She applies the foundation and bronzer and that sort of stuff first and then blusher, eyeliner, mascara and finally white eyeshadow and pale pink lipstick. My hair is in a bun with a roll round my head. I am totally transformed. I do not usually wear make-up anyway so this is not a usual routine for me.
