Creative Writing : My First Date

Extracts from this document...


Creative Writing : My First Date 'Dress to impress', were the words rolling around inside my head willing me to carry on with the monotonous routine. My nerves were raging and pulsating through my body just as they were on the first day of school. If anyone had seen me then I am sure that they would have sent for the men in white coats, to come and collect me. I eventually plucked out a black satin ballroom gown from the back of my walk-in wardrobe. I had prepared myself for the energetic task and set aside half an hour to get into the dress. This was the first time I had worn the overbearing dress that hung precariously from my cupboard door.

After the usual protest from myself the battle was lost and they used a whole roll of film. Hazy roads passed me by on the trek back to my nest. Thoughts were a blur, racing through my mind. What had happened tonight? Was it all a dream? Will we meet again? Welcoming lights and warmth called me into my home. I think my parents asked me something but I cannot remember what they said.
