Monday 8th [MEGABOMBSHELL!!] It’s not fair! Dougie’s got a girlfriend.
She’s called Anna Collins and goes to this orchestra with him and people keep saying she’s really weird with the clothes she wears and stuff. Becky the Year 9 (who’s mates with her) said that Anna’s fancied Dougie for ages [Who hadn’t?] and he liked her and then on Friday night she asked Dougie to ask her out to see what she’d say. He did and she said yes. I’m sure he was one of the people who said she was weird!
I had to give him a Xmas card from Hayley today coz she was too scared to give it to him herself. So when he came up the stairs for registration, I gave it to him. He said thanks so I told him who it was from. He came over and stood really close next to me and told me to tell Mrs S that Theo Papadoukjkhvcfn (I can’t spell it!) would be late for form.
As he was talking, he sort of covered his face with the register he’d got for his form so no-one could see what he was saying to me. I got a funny look off Sarah. He was being really nice. I really wanted to ask him if it was true about Anna but I didn’t wanna sound interested so I didn’t bother. Maybe it won’t last long.
I had to give Ralph his card from Hayley too and he looked quite pleased when I first gave it to him until I told him it wasn’t from me. I s’pose Ralph’s still single but I don’t even know if he likes me anymore!
After school I had a flute lesson with Emma and we had to wait around for a bit so we decided to go to the shop. We passed Ralph getting his bike and he and Emma made a deal that they would give each other Xmas cards. We walked ahead and he set off. I could see him coming up behind us but when he started riding next to me, it scared Emma for some reason.
This is summit like the conversation until we went:-
Tess (me): Oh, hi.
Emma: AAARRGHH! Ralph don’t do that, you scared me!
Ralph: (To 1st Years) Move!
Tess: Kill ‘em! (I pushed his bike so he nearly hit one.) [Bit tight. 1st Years are people too!]
(Emma and Ralph start talking about summit.)
E: I thought you’d be at Air Cadets.
R: No, I don’t go anymore.
E: Do the others?
R: It was only really me and Ferny. Oh, and Jade. I want a Christmas card off you too, Tess.
T: I’ll see.
E: She’s been trying to decide whether to give you one all day.
(I tried to make some excuse about not having all that many cards.)
R: D’you know what Hayley wrote in Freddie’s card?
T + E: No.
R: From Hayley!
(We got to the end of the road.)
R: I’m going now. (He said that to me.)
T: There was summit I had to tell you.
T: I can’t remember. I’ll tell you tomorrow if I do.
R: Okay, bye.
There wasn’t anything to tell him really. I dunno why I said that. [I know why I said that. I wanted to be near him for longer because I luuuuurved him – especially now Dougie was off the market.]
Oh yeah, I’ve just remembered summit else awful that’s happened. It was the draw for the 3rd round of the F.A. Cup at the weekend and out of all those bloody teams, Man Utd have ended up with Chelsea. I bet the Chelsea fans are shitting themselves but it’s a bad draw for United as well. Chelsea are only 2nd in the league, right behind Man U and if anyone’s going to beat ‘em, it’ll probably be Chelsea. Man U have the disadvantage of it being an away match too.
P.S. Geography and orchestra and stuff are going to be a bit more boring now that Dougie’s no longer single. Damn it!
