Kath & Mouse Part 2 Kath is being even worse to me now that I won the talent contest but at least she isnt getting that much support. After the contest people started to talk to me and all of a sudden I had friends. Kevin is now being even nicer to me and is getting real close so were coming best of buddies. I heard a rumor in our school that Kevin want to be more then friends and is going to ask me out after I sing at Christines. I felt like nothing would be able to ruin my mood but Kath found a way.
Just the day before the dance Kath came up to me and yelled, “I hope you have a good time at Christines. Oh by the wayMouse my brother isnt going because he wants to stay away from you and he knows your going to be there.” “Uh huh, well it just so happens that isnt true and we talked just yesterday about the party and what were going to do,” I replied grinning. Kath then stormed off with her nose in the air at the sound of these words. After that little incident I avoided Kath the rest of the day and right before I left the school Kevin came up to me. “Ill get my dad to drive us to the party if you dont have a ride,” he told me.
“Sure pick me up at 7:00, you remember my address right?” I asked. “Yep,” he replied. When I got home I started to get ready. I took a warm shower and tried to choose myself a matching selection of clothes. At the end I decided on a tight baby blue tank top and a white mini-skirt.
I also started to do my hair. A french twist with a bit of spizazz to it. After that, all I had left to do was my make-up. My mom told me which make-up I should use and how to put it on because I havent used it before. I put on eyeliner, some rouge, and mascara to help me look even more beautiful.
I was totally ready at around 6:30 but I still fiddled with my hair and my skirt a lot until it was 7:00. At 7:05 Kevin came in his dads blue Ford pick-up truck to pick me up. “Goodbye! Pick me up at 1:00,” I yelled to my parents. “Lets go!” called Kevin. I jumped into the truck and we made our way to the party. When we got there Kevins dad told us to have a good time and he drove off.
I knocked on the door and Christine answered. She welcomed us by saying, “Hey, come on in.” “Thanks,” replied Kevin. When we walked in a loud rush of music hit us and I was almost knocked backwards. I was very tense at the party but after a while I got really relaxed and started to talk to people. Before I knew it the party was about to end and Christine just asked me to sing.
I chose a beautiful song called “Time of Your Life”. After I sang the last note everyone applauded and Kevin came up to me. “Great job Helen. Um, I was wondering if you would go out with me?” he asked embaresly. “Oh Kevin of course I will,” I said happily.
After that I was in heaven and on top of the world. When my mom picked me up I said, “Goodbye Kevin, see ya tomorrow.” The next day it seems that the whole school knew I was going out with Kevin. The only person who didnt look happy about it was Kath. She looked disappointed and furious. I knew she was going to find away to break Kevin and me up.
A few days passed and I got a note from Kevin. It read, “You know Ive been thinking. Maybe we shouldnt see each other. Actually how about you dont even talk to me.” I was very token back, emotionally hurt and just wanted to kill someone. Then a while later I cooled downI started thinking.
What if Kath sent me the note to break Kevin and me up? In fact every time I tried talking to Kevin about this he would just ignore me and walk away. It proves that she might of sent a note to him also. The next day I got an idea that would get Kevin and me back together. The Christmas play auditions are happening after school today and someone told me he would be trying out. So at the end of the day I went to tryouts and I saw KevinI waved.
“Hey Kevin come here,” I called. “Oh, hello,” he said dully. “Kevin you have to believe me that your sister sent that note to you and she also sent one to me. I didnt believe that you would break up with me without a reason or even not want to talk to me. Therefore I planned a way for you and me to talk,” I explained. “Im sorry I should of known. Does this mean were still going out?” Kevin asked. “Yes, yes it does,” I replied.
