When I turned thirteen, of course I had a party
. I invited all my closest friends
. We were just goofing around, doing normal girly things, when all of a sudden this person I've never seen before shows up. She says her name is Audrey
, and that she really wanted to come to my party. No one knew what to say. She was wearing a dark pink
sweater with a belt
over it, extremely tight stretch pants
, and she had her hair in several small ponytails all over her head. She was also wearing makeup
, something my friends and I were not allowed to do. Her eyes were enormous
, with eyelashes a mile long. She had huge circles
of blush on her cheeks, and a thick smear
of green eyeshadow right up to each eyebrow
. All in all, the girl looked hideous
. Then my mom comes downstairs and says I should let this kid stay at my party. I couldn't say no, so all of us just sat there in silence
and watched the new arrival make herself comfortable.
Then she started laughing.
I didn't know what to do. Why was she laughing? What was she laughing at? But then, she said "Katie, it's me." It took me a minute, but under all that makeup I could finally recognize who it really was. My brother.
