As soon as the announcement was make, Kristin didn’t know whether to cry or grin eagerly. So she squirmed in her seat, dreading the next few weeks. She expected not to be asked out (who wants a girlfriend smarter than themselves?) and yet she kind of hoped at least ONE person would.

And, for the first time, Kristin stopped listening to Mr Dobbins’ lecture. She started to day dream.

James Bond… Well, I’d have to be Money Penny… she’s the only one smart enough not to get dumped by Bond… Uh! Ian Fleming was so sexist, its disgusting… Maybe I shouldn’t dress to the theme… Kristin, what are you thinking? You can’t break the rules!…

Kristin fought a long battle with herself, and decided, in the end, that her date wouldn’t dress as Bond, but some other, more respectable person… maybe Number 1…

“Miss Stuart! Are you paying attention?”

Kristin awoke with a start. She blushed to the point where a tomato would look pale in comparison. Why bother dreaming? No one would ask her.

“Of course, sir!”

    Haha we follow her thoughts as her head goes up into the clouds.

    You play out the thought pattern very well. Good job on that. I was entertained.

    The parts in italics confused me. Sometimes they were in first person and at other times in second slash third.

    Besides the temporary confusion, I really like the self depricating thoughts of the class boff at the time of the dance. Nice work.

    Good to see how people dream of breaking out of their boxes in their heads… Kristin’s no different I suppose!

    I’m with PJ on the confusion over the italics, but I think I got the general message, which was a kind of sad one – prom’s not a night for everyone…

    MH :)

    I LOVE the fact that she’s trying to convince herself to dress to the theme so as not to “break the rules” even though she doesn’t like the theme. I cringe every time I read a Kristin story because I relate excrutiatingly well to her…
