The Night's Beginning

The weeks flew by in a blur. Before we all knew it, the dance was upon us.

I was proud on how well Lionel did on his dancing lesson, and hoped Samantha would be impressed.

At the thought of her, I shivers. I didn't know what it was, but there was just something about her that I didn't like.

I shook the thought off, focusing on getting ready for the dance.

In the spirit of Christmas, my dress was green. It was tight at my waist and fell from my hips in waves. It went all the way to the floor. I felt like a princess wearing it.

I was debating whether or not to put my hair up in a fact hairdo again, and decided against it. I was going for pretty or beautiful, not hot.

So I just brushed it and gathered half of it together into a clip. A simple yet elegant style. To make up for lack of design, I wore a red and green crown. I topped it off with silver glitter.

My make up was mostly neutral shades. I found eyeshadow the exact shade of my dress, though.

My earrings, necklace, and bracelet were all red and green bells. I even found a bell anklet. You could hear me coming from a mile away. Just the way I like it.

For a finale, I slid on my red heels and my red sweater, grabbed my purse, and waited at the door for Daniel. Thankfully, my parents weren't home to embarrass me with pictures.

When Daniel arrived, I slid out my door and locked it. When I turned around, Daniel was behind me with a bouquet of red and green flowers. I smiled.

"Claudia, you look… beautiful tonight." he said.

"Thank you." I replied, leaning over to kiss him.

He led me to his car and opened the passenger door for me.

"Wow, quite the gentleman tonight." I commented as he slid into the drivers seat.

"Only the best for m'lady." he said.

I laughed and turned up the music. Christmas music had always been my favorite. I hummed along quietly, not knowing what to say, and frankly, just enjoying being with Daniel when everything was calm. The night was off to a great start.

The End
