Cindy's Fairy-Tale

Extracts from this document...


"I've won!" Cindy shouted to herself, as she collapsed to the floor of the boutique. The lottery numbers given out on the nearby television confirmed it. Finally, her luck had come. Now she could relax and give up her job, as a cleaner. She decided to celebrate and go out somewhere fun. Her favourite night-club that she could never afford to go to would be the ideal place. After all, it was Saturday and soon she'd be rich. She knew she was entitled to have some happiness once in her life. The place, where all girls her age, would crave to go to would be the Oasis night-club. The DJ of her dreams would be there tonight. She had fancied him for ages, but knew he wouldn't be interested in someone like herself. He was usually seen with the best and well known prettiest girls around, who wore expensive designer dresses. Cindy knew she'd never be someone like that. Of course, now that she'd won the money, she could live up to his expectations. She stared ahead at a dress on a model further along the shop. She moved closer towards it. It was expensive, but it was worth every penny. It was bright red satin with sleeves that hung loosely off the shoulder, which gave a daring appeal to it too. ...read more.


The thunderous tunes of pop music and the sound of the DJ's voice above it rippled through her veins, as she stepped inside. She slowly moved in and noticed him standing on the stage ahead. He was more handsome in person than in his pictures. He was famous for his work and now, at last, he was here in her favourite night-club that she could never afford to go to except on this one night. After knocking a few diet cokes down her, Cindy headed for the dance floor. The music was blaring, as she danced her way through the crowd and bumped into the one guy she didn't think she'd meet. "Ah...oh...."she screeched crouching down to console her foot. "I'm so sorry. Are you okay? It's all my fault. I wasn't looking where I was going." She wasn't worried about her foot, but only the man in front of her. She gradually looked up and saw the DJ standing beside her. Her heart began to beat erratically and everything else around her was like a quiet murmur in the distance. She realized he was touching her arm and guiding her away from the crowded dance floor towards a nearby seating area. Once there, he helped her to sit down. "Are you feeling okay? Do you want me to get you a drink?" ...read more.


She could pay for them. It was Mark she would miss. She'd never see him again, but she knew she would remember this night forever. At home, she checked her numbers again and realized she'd only gotten four numbers out of six, but she was still glad for the extra money. Eighty pounds wasn't bad for a lottery win. She knew it was a shame that it couldn't have been a million, but she'd had a great night. "Oh well, at least I met Mark and had a brilliant night with him." She told herself. The next morning, she headed to work early and put the dress back in it's place. She was prepared to pay for the sandals, since she'd lost one of them. It would be a souvenir of her one night of glamour. "Hello again," said a well known voice behind her that made her shiver with excitement. "You!" she gasped as she turned around. "How did you find me?" "I got the telephone number from the back of the limousine you were in. The driver was very helpful. I told him I needed to return this sandal to it's rightful owner." "I see." "If it fits the girl I'm looking for, then I hope she's prepared to go out with me tonight," Mark stated. She slipped her foot easily into the red sparkling sandal, as he took her hand and led her away with him. She had won her million lottery after all and the fairy tale to go with it. ...read more.
