Imagine a character at two very different ages, and describe his or her day at each age.
Character Name: Chloe
Age: 11 – Grade 6
Day: Last day of elementary school before summer vacation
Chloe’s general thoughts:
I better grow boobs this summer. I better!
Will Ryan pass me a note in class today and ask me to play basketball with him after school? I’m such a great basketball player. He’s seen me! He comes to all the games! I wish he would just ask me. Maybe if I hang around after school, he’ll see me and ask me to join the game.
Mr. Teechher is so gross! He smells like B.O.. I’m glad I won’t have him another year.
Becky’s boobs keep getting bigger. I don’t understand! Everyone (even the girls) stare at her like she’s a movie star. They’re just boobs.
Harry keeps staring at me. I hope we don’t have to be on the same team today for any of the games we play.
I’m so glad it’s the last day of school! Except…will I see Jason this summer?
No more tests! No more studying! I can read all summer!!
Swimming lessons start next week already. I hope the weather will be nice and hot.
I hope I get Mrs. Huntely for grade seven. She’s so cool. I’m gonna be in grade seven next year! Grade seven!!!
Oh my god! Jason’s passing me a note!!!
Wanna play basketball after school? Summer vacation is finally here! I hope we can hang out and play ball this summer.
Day: Wedding day
Chloe’s general thoughts:
I’m getting married in one hour!!!! This is really happening!
I wonder what Jason’s thinking…are we making the right decision?
I still have the first note he passed me when we were in elementary school together. He moved away that summer and I was devastated. No one knew he was leaving or where he went.
I wonder if Coach will be here? I know she was busy with the basketball team getting ready for finals. I can’t believe I’m still playing ball! This wedding is bad timing, but I couldn’t wait to marry Jason.
Where are my vows? Oh god! Shit…wait, oh they’re here. I wonder what Jason’s vows will say.
I’m glad I’m not wearing heels. Mom found the cutest white runners. She’s the best!
And Harry…I hope Harry comes. He’s my best friend. I know he’s shocked at the quickness of the wedding…but he knows me. He trusts me. He’s my Maid of Honour! I wonder if Kyle will come too. Who knew? Harry loved boys – and me!
I can’t wait to see Jason! I have to see him once before the ceremony. I know it’s bad luck but I’ll make him keep his eyes closed!!
“Mom! Please go get Jason! Bring him here and make him keep his eyes closed. I have to see him and kiss him before the ceremony!”
