25. The ball
Louis insisted so much for me to go to the ball that I couldn’t say no. In fact I was exciting for the ball because maybe Louis and I could be together there…I don’t know I was just thinking there was a reason for Louis insistence.
I talked to Julie, Carly, Mike, Ellie and Jane and they were exciting to go to the ball.
I spent hours looking for a dress, not just a dress but the perfect one. I found a dark blue one that fitted perfectly in my body. I put a high heel and a dark make up.
And here I am, getting in the school gym. The place looked so different! The decoration is amazing! There is a nice music, some people are dancing, others are talking and laughing, some are near the table eating…oh the food looked delicious. But my eyes are looking for another thing….I mean for someone.
I can’t find Louis but I am not going to stay the whole night looking for him. Yet, I’m always looking the door to see him when he arrive.
“Are you ok?” Carly asks
“You seem a little distracted. Why keep looking the door?”
“Nothing” I lie
“Okay… the food looks delicious! Let´s go eat something!”
“Yeah let’s go there”
While we were there next to the table music started .It was Starship from Nicki Minnaj
“I love this song!!!!’Ellie says
“Me too!!!” Jane says
“Let´s dance!” Carly suggests
“But I am eating!” I protest
“Oh please Ali don’t spoil it! Let’s have some fun” Mike says pushing me to the dance floor
I let go and decide to have some fun. I dance! While I’m there dancing I look to the door and see Louis with his arms around a girl’s waist. I stop. Of course he has a pair! How I could be so stupid to think that he wanted to be with me! He just kissed me and moved on! He lookes at me and I start dancing again, pretending I don’t care of who he is with.
For the rest of the night I dance, I talk and just have fun. Without Louis. Who said I need him anyway? He can stay with that girl….
I had a great time, but I’m disappointed with him for giving me hopes and with me for believing in his words…after all I’m just a joke to him.
