Darn forgot: this was prompted by the words in Three Word Wednesday So is the post below where we properly thank Bone for the words. The post below is dark
Delane wanted to fall in love. She wanted it so badly she couldn’t think of anything else. All her girlfriends talked about how wonderful love was. She would see them cuddling with their boyfriends and she felt so lonely.
Her parents would tell her to give it time. Someday a boy would be swept away by Delane’s beauty and brains. She didn’t believe them. Her father would feel sorry for her and give her extra money on a Saturday for shopping. She already had two credit cards. But cash was always welcome.
That Saturday she was supposed to see her best friend Alexa. When she went to Alexa’s house, Alexa was all tangled in her boyfriend Joey’s arms.
Delane knew what girls did when they were depressed; they went to Juicy and bought some new clothes, pocketbooks and accessories. So she did. It felt as if nobody understood that she was truly depressed. They all said “someday.” Delane wanted someday to be today.
She looked real good the next day when all her friends came over. Her mother had wanted to do something really big. But Delane wanted a pool party for her eleventh birthday.
