Who: Maggie and Devon
When: Sunday evening
Where: Maggie’s dorm room
What: pizza and movies!
Maggie was SUPER excited for Devon to come over. Pizza! Movies! Maybe they’d even watch some PG13 movies, which she’d never been allowed to see before. But she was old enough now! She borrowed a few from some girls in the dorms, plus, Devon was bringing a few. They could haggle over what they watched when he arrived.
She made sure her room was clean, because her mom taught her that it was important to tidy up when guests visited. She’d also fussed over deciding what to wear, which was where Kim’s assistance came into play. This wasn’t a date, according to Kim, so Maggie didn’t feel the need to dress up. She just threw on some jeans, a t-shirt, and a hoodie. She also wore some big fuzzy slippers because they were nice and warm and cute too!
There was one other thing she was wearing that was NOT comfortable or cute or cool in any way/shape/form. A pad. Who invented these things? It was horrible! But Kim seemed to think it was necessary. Maggie’s appetite and cramps earlier in the day indicated she might be about to get her first period. It really freaked her out, and she was trying to just not think about it. But it was so scary! Kim assured her that it didn’t hurt, and it wasn’t like she was going to bleed to death, but the idea of bleeding in general was terrifying. Maggie could read all she wanted online about first periods, but she didn’t feel ready for it at all. She hoped it wouldn’t happen while Devon was over.
When it was nearly 4:00, she checked her hair in the mirror. It wasn’t a date, but she still wanted to look cute. Devon was cute, and a boy, so even though he was just a new friend, she wanted to look nice when he showed up. She was still learning how to apply makeup, and had gotten a bit of help from Kim on that as well. It was simple, just a little mascara and lip gloss. Kim said she looked nice.
