Something Feels Strange - 22

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

Laurie is pretty impressed with how easy it was to make friends with Caitlin. My first move is ahead of schedule. We still need to find a way to connect with Andy Lang, the quiet loner that Mrs. Harrison wants us to befriend. We think that task will be much more difficult.

But first, we have to find him.

Chapter 22: The First Day on the Job

Something Feels Strange - 21

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

With mixed feelings, I say, “I don’t know how this will all end, but yes, I will do my best to put away Boy Chris and become Girl Tina. This means that I must stop thinking of you as my girlfriend, Laurie. That’s the hardest part of all and will take sometime to implement. We’ll have to make some modifications to our ground rules for this to happen. You will have to treat me just like any other girl and I will need to behave like one. I just hope that we can make the transition back to what we had when this is over at the end of the summer but I’ll try not to worry about that until the time comes.”

Laurie and I embrace each other with tears that could either be happiness for our new relationship or sorrow for the one we are giving up. They could be mix of both. It is hard to say.

Chapter 21: Welcome to California

Something Feels Strange - 20

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

“That’s what I’m afraid of,” I confide, “I’m so afraid that, if I let myself go, I’ll like it too much to go back.”

“Well, girl, it seems to me that you’ll have to go back to being Chris. After all, how would you explain Chris’s disappearance? I would miss him terribly. Just think, if you didn’t switch back then we’d both need to find new boyfriends; and let me tell you, girl, guys like Chris are rare and very hard to find. Anyway, letting yourself go may make the transition back to being Chris harder, but not unbearable, and I think that it will make your summer much more fun. Think about it, girl friend.”

I do think about it—a lot—before I finally get to sleep.

Chapter 20: Race Day

Something Feels Strange - 19

Something Feels Strange…

By Tiffany B. Quinn

Before going to bed, I log into my email account and what do I find? Another email from Joey! Laurie gives me an I-told-you-so look when I tell her.  He sent the email late in the day and attached another of the pictures taken yesterday. He asks how my day went and if I've found out anything about the race on Saturday.

Ugh!  What do I do? I decide to ignore it for the time being. I feel bad to ignoring someone who is trying to be friendly, but Laurie has me concerned that Joey is looking for more than just a friend. Maybe if I send him a thank you email late tomorrow he'll take the hint that I'm not interested in establishing a romantic relationship. Why can't we just be buddies?

Chapter 19: A Night Out

GABY : BOOK 2 Summer Girl*Part 71 Is That You Gaby?

"So what are you two up to today?" Aunt Carol asked

"Not really sure?" Mad answered

"I've got to go out in a while, just into the village so I shan't be long, you two going to be okay? Drew?"

"I guess"

"I'll have my mobile if you need me"

"Okay Mum" Mad confirmed, "can we go online please?"

"Yes but don't spend all day on there" Mrs P agreed

"Come on Gab" Mad was in control, I am but a puppet!

I wanted to send a mail to Britney so it wasn't such a hardship. No the
hardship was the wince inducing pain of having anything touch me,
particularly on my arms and legs.

We surfed for a while before Maddy handed the controls over to me while she went to organise some drinks.

GABY : BOOK 2 Summer Girl*Part 70*Pear Shaped

"Miss, miss!" I could hear the insistent voice but I ignored it. Hmm, it feels all floaty and squidgy, all those colours.

"She's coming round" a female voice mentioned

The squidgyness was replaced by intense pain that seemed to come from just about everywhere.

"Wha'? Where?"

"It's okay dear, an ambulance is on its way"

I tried to move but that just intensified the pain.

"Whoa girl, just lay there, don't move"

"Not girl" I mumbled

"There, there, you're in shock. What's your name?"

"Drew"

"That's a pretty name"

I could hear the approaching ambulance as the siren dopplered towards us. It all went fuzzy again and I passed out.

Gaby: BOOK 2* Summer Girl*Part 69*Happy Birthday!

"Do you know what time you'll be home?" Dad asked from the doorway

"No idea" I told him, "I'll have to ring you when I find out"

"Well I'll see you later then"

"Okay Dad"

"And stay out of trouble"

"Yes Dad" I sighed

A few minutes later I heard the car leaving, a glance at the clock announced it was seven thirty, Sleep!

"Are you getting out of bed today?" Jules asked

"Uh, yeah. What time is it?"

"Gone nine"

"Sod!"

I am not usually one for expletives but I remembered what I need to do this morning. I exploded from under my duvet and scrambled into some underwear before heading to the bathroom. Ten minutes later I joined my sister in the kitchen.

Rock Star Makeover, Part 1

Rock Star Makeover, Part 1

“You can't be serious!”

“Why not enter the contest? ”

“Well, duh, its for girls?”

“Doesn't say that anywhere. Says you have to be 15 or older, that's it.”

“Come on! I know you like Cathy Mason, and that the contest winner gets a meting with her, as well as a trip to Hollywood for the winner, their parents and a friend. But it also includes a new wardrobe, as well as a 'makeover'. You know, like makeup and stuff?”

He just grinned at me.

“He” was Gavin Martin, and my best friend, and this is our story. I am Noah Alexander, and we were both 16 years old.

“And besides which, wouldn't you need your parents permission?”

“I have already talked to them, dude”

“You always did plan ahead”

(Luki)

Two years have passed, I have returned to school, the Kivalliq Mine Training Society having accepted me and I now work as an instrumentation technician.
