Girls Night Out

Extracts from this document...


Girls Night Out Spending time with Alison was always an educational experience for me. She knew all the unwritten rules about the social behaviour and friendships of nine year old girls that had always eluded me. She had girls (myself included) queuing up to be friends with her, so she and her tight circle of constant cohorts ruled over us all, yet for unknown reasons she would only ever have one favourite at a time. Generally it would be one of the inner circle, but when she got bored of, or wanted to punish her minions she would select one of the throng of us hangers on: The ritual was always the same she'd choose you, you would forsake any other friends you had, the pair of you would have a fast, intense 'friendship' and when she got bored of you, or she forgave her 'best friends' or you said or did the wrong thing, she'd loose you. ...read more.


One Friday in mid-May I was the lucky one, Alison had hand selected me to come out with her that evening, she had drilled me on what I was to wear, reminding me of out last 'night out', where I had worn a 'save the pandas' t-shirt and orange jeans. I hated the way she condescended at me but at the same time held her opinion as invaluable. She sat next to me for the rest of the day; I caught her 'posse' throwing me venomous looks but I didn't care. I was the diligent, intelligent host and she was the parasite, copying my answers until our pages were identical. That night I donned my 'coolest' clothes and tied my purple and blue striped fleecy around my waste. I hurried down to Alison's house and knocked politely at the door. Alison barged out slamming the door behind her. Catching her breath, she seemed surprised to find me on the doorstep; she recovered quickly from the shock and frog marched me down the road. ...read more.


Alison took time out of her frantic chewing to converse with me as we walked. "Can you spit?" she inquired, bemused by the question I nodded, unsure of what I was letting myself in for, "can u spit like this?" Alison demanded. Almost gracefully she arched her neck back and propelled it forward in a trice, a gargantuan globule of green phlegm shot out of her mouth and landed at least two meters away from her. I stepped back in mixed repulsion and amazement. "Your turn" she sang, a wicked grin playing on the corners of her mouth. I prepared myself for the test; leaning back I gathered saliva at the front of my mouth and jerking myself forward spat it out quickly. A pathetic splash of white saliva appeared no more than two feet in front of me and Alison doubled over with hysterical laughter. As she contended with her mirth I glanced at our two efforts; her disgusting, malignant green 'flob' sitting boldly on the cracked paving stone and way behind it my bead of white spittle was hunched apologetically on a piece of moss. I sighed and followed her up the hill. ...read more.
