"Hey Bella! It is Bella right?"
"Er.. Yeah, why?" I was confused as to why Lauren was talking to me, after all, we aren't similar in any way, shape or form.
"Well, I'm having a huge party on Sunday, and we want loads of people to come, so, you up for it?"
A party. Me? I didn't know what to say. "Erm... I'll see if I can."
"Awesome, well, here's my number, text me when you know!" She gave me a post-it and wandered away, her long red hair bouncing behind her, I was insanely jealous. She was stunning.
I asked Mother as soon as I got home, as to make sure Dad wouldn't hear about it.
"How lovely! Is it her birthday?"
"I don't think so, she asked me after school, didn't mention it." I was nervous. I'd never had a party, let alone been to one, and didn't know how either parent would react.
"Hm, well, I'll ask your Dad about it, see if you can get her Mothers number?"
"I'll try." I started to change my mind. What if it's like the parties on TV, everyone having sex and taking drugs. It wouldn't! They're not like that, are they? Oh God.
