Crash and Burn.

Extracts from this document...


Crash and Burn. He was walking towards me. I was so nervous! I checked my hair and make-up, put on a bit of lipstick and I was all set to go. But who was I kidding? My knees were as weak as jelly, just like they always were when I saw him. I took in a deep breath as he flashed me a perfect white smile. " Hi Alex". His deep voice always spread butterflies into my stomach. " Hi Charlie, how's it going?" " Good, good. Um... me and a few mates are going down to the movies tonight, fancy being my date?"
