The first time I met Harry was at an after party for the last day of the fashion week.
I don’t know how my best friend Hannah convinced me to help her break into the party so she could spy on her boyfriend, but she did.
When I laid eyes on Harry, I knew that It was love from first sight. At least it was for me.
I remember Hannah begging me to go with her..
“Come on, Selena. Oliver bailed on me. I need to know why. I think he is cheating on me.“ She said, giving me the puppy eyes.
“Hannah, please stop with the eyes already. You are killing me!” I said.
“You know I hate this stuff. I’d rather sit at home, eat my gummy worms and watch Beauty and The Beast.” I continued.
“I promise I will stop asking you to go to parties with me from now on, and I will make you that vodka gummy bears you love.” she said pleadingly.
“For how long?” I asked.
“A month. No more no less.” She could see that I caved in to her idea.
“Hannah, but I don’t think it’s a good idea. Remember the last time we went clubbing together? We burned the entire club and it was your fault!” I said.
“My fault? How was I to know that the club belonged to the mafia and that they would be angry if we throw a little bonfire?’’ She said.
“Ughhh! Never mind. Let’s just get this over with." I said.
“Okay, let’s start dressing you. We need to look hot." She said evilly.
She started curling my hair. After she finished she started putting my makeup and other stuff that I didn’t recognise on my face.
“Why do you need to put all that? I feel like there is a pound of an entire make up on my face! ” I said.
“Because it’s a masquerade and I forgot to bring you a mask, so I’m painting you one. Now, hold still.” She said.
“Hannah, but I don’t have a dress.” I whined.
“Stop with your whining. I have an extra dress for you.“ She said.
After 30 minutes of torture she finally finished.
“Selena, put on the freaking dress.”
“No, I won’t” I said stubbornly.
There was no way I was putting on that dress! It was backless! Like showing my ass backless!
“YES, YOU WILL!” She shouted.
“Nope.” I said.
“Nope” I said.
“Nope.” She said, smirking.
“Yes.” I said.
“Shit, Hannah! How do you always do this?” I asked.
“Because simply, I’m the boss. Now go put on the dress.” She said smirking.
“Fine, I will.” I said grumbling.
I started undressing.
“Wait! Are you seriously going to wear that lingerie?” She laughed.
“Yeah. What’s wrong with it?” I said.
“Are you for real? They are Sponge Bob. You have a freaking Sponge Bob on your boobs and crotch!“ She busted out laughing.
“Wait, you can borrow my new set. I didn’t use it yet.” She continued.
“Fine, I will. Now could you please stop laughing? Yu are making me uncomfortable.” I grumbled.
She handed me a black lace set and turned around so I can wear them.
I quickly put them on.
“You can turn around now." I said.
“Damn girl! If I were a lesbian, I would do you right here.” She said, eyeing me up and down.
“Oh, shut up.” I said rolling my eyes.
I quickly put on the dress and it fit perfectly. It was a long golden dress that was backless and it was heart shaped. It fit me perfectly, and I felt like a princess.
When Hannah finally let me look in the mirror I could barley recognize myself. I looked like I just came out of the cover of a fashion magazine.
The mask that Hannah drew was amazing. It was gold and silver design that looked really fantastic and made my eyes pop even more and it also hide my identity.
After Hannah finished getting ready we called a taxi.
“What if we don’t get in?” I asked.
“Don’t worry, we will get in.” She said reassuringly.
“How?” I asked again.
“Shut up and let me handle all the talking.” She said.
When we arrived at the hotel, we sneaked into the party through the service door.
As soon as we entered the ball, my mouth dropped. It looked absolutely beautiful. Everyone looked like they came out from magazines and their masks were beautiful, and don’t let me start on the food.
“Hannah, how are you going to find Oliver like that? Everyone is wearing masks.” I said.
“I didn’t think about that part. Let’s split up and search for him.” She said eyeing a poor guy that looked like Oliver.
She started heading towards him.
“Shit, I thought that we should never leave a man behind.” I grumbled but she left before she can hear what I said.
I started walking towards the bar.
I mean, who can say no to free drinks?
“What can I get to you?” the bartender asked.
“Do you have a beer?” I asked.
“A beer? You are asking for a beer in a high society event?” He let out a high pitch annoying laugh.
Seriously, if that guy didn’t stop laughing, it won’t end well for him.
“Would you please stop laughing and get me a beer before I castrate your nuts?” I asked innocently
