Shannon and Isabelle have been friends for years and now they are both reaching the ends of their school lives, they’ve meet boys and family fallouts. But the troubles are now behind them, and
live seems to be going smoothly.
That is, until Shannon’s parents bring some news that is absolutely not welcome and Isabelle’s love life could be lost forever, literally. Who can they turn, when they might not even have each
other anymore and even then, the answers won’t always be right.
Chapter One – Truth or Dare
I looked up into Isabelle’s mossy eyes. I grinned my evil grin and said ‘Truth, dare, double dare, kiss, command, or promise.’ She stared at me for a moment then replied.
‘Urgh, I hate it when you pick this game,’ she groaned, but quickly said ‘fine, dare’ I laughed once, while she gave me a quizzical look then rolled her eyes.
That was one thing I loved about Isabelle, she could always make me laugh. ‘Okay then, I dare you, to…tell me what you honestly think my worst quality is’ I looked at her annoyed expression and
cracked a smile.
‘That is soo not fair,’ she exclaimed sticking her bottom lip out. ‘That’s a truth and anyway I can’t answer that, it’s completely unfair, like I said.’
I sighed, ‘come on, firstly you have to answer otherwise you get the consequence and secondly I don’t care it’s still a dare.’ I laughed and watched her expression alter as she changed her mind.
I knew she would, because I always won.
‘Let’s see’ she threatened, ‘Your determination is definitely a bad factor, but still kinda good.’ I gave her a look that said not good enough look and she eventually carried on after a lot of
mumbling and sighing. ‘Calm down, calm down, I’m thinking,’ she said giving me a stern look. ‘Okay, honestly, your perfectness, it makes me jealous. But, I’m coping.’ She ended with a sigh and
hit her leg with her hand. I caught her eyes and we both cracked up laughing.
After at least three minutes of laughing, coughing and looking at each other calmly, but carrying on laughing, we stopped, breathing in and out dramatically.
I turned and looked her in the eyes. ‘Seriously Izzy?’ I said but ending up going blank and not bothering to laugh again, or maybe it was to stop laughing.
She wiped her eyes and chuckled, ‘It’s true, yep,’ she repeated, putting emphasis on the p. ‘Anyway it’s my go.’
I moaned that this was definitely not right and she just laughed and said ‘pay back.’
‘Okay, truth, dare, double dare, kiss, command or promise.’ She stared at me, I looked away thinking, I felt her eyes boring into the back of my head, making me uncomfortable. ‘Tick, tock, tick,
tock.’ She whispered, leaning closer to me.
‘Command’ I blurted out without thinking about the choice. I realised what see would probably do to the word I just said, so I looked Izzy in the eye and frowned.
‘Your not the only one that can twist things around.’ She sniggered, then continued. ‘I command you to tell me who you fancy.’
I stared at her face ‘You know I like to keep those sorts of things to myself.’ Why didn’t I see this coming? Oh, right, cos I’m stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
‘Not I in this game you don’t. I answer yours so you answer mine.’ She kept a straight face, trying to look determined. I looked down and smiled. Not working, I needed a tactic.
‘Bathroom break’ I grinned hopping to my feet.
‘Hey, come back here, you cheating fool.’ But she gave up and plonked her self on a beanbag in the corner of the room.
I laughed as I ran out of the room and grabbed my phone out of my back pocket. I dialled quickly, 01496 9427. Pizza Express. My stomach growled in agreement, I chuckled.
Five minutes later, I returned to find Isabelle on the floor tapping her nails against the table.
‘Okay, I’m ready’ I smiled ‘what was the question?’ I asked sweetly.
‘You damn well know what the question is.’ I put on a hurt face.
‘Do I?’ I looked up at her from under my eyelashes.
‘Yes you …..’ Ding, dong.
‘Hmm, I wonder who that could be.’
‘Urgh, I swear, sometimes you annoy the hell out of me’ She growled, getting up off the floor and walking to the door.
