The huge doors opened widely to reveal a glamourous white lobby. It looked like a mansion! Actually, it was a mansion.
My best friend's mansion, actually. Phoebe is head of the netball, debating, and drama teams, she has glossy black hair and sharp blue eyes, AND last year she REFUSED a modelling contract to Dolly! She's like the Barbie doll I could never afford, and it was only last week that she actually started talking to me. Yes, TALKING to me! But I guess that won't be good for tonight...
She gives me a Colgate-covered smile, then says in her smooth voice, "Hi, Meg, we've been expecting you."
We? But I thought I was the only one coming! Of course, I didn't say that to Phoebe, i'd sound dumb, instead I just nodded. When I walked into the stylishly purple living room, the second thing I saw was a bunch of girls that looked like they'd popped right out of a glossy magazine. One had square glass low on her curly blonde hair, who introduced herself as Freya. The girl next to her, who was wearing an incredibly short skirt, was called Shirley, and she had wicked red hair. The third girl had short black hair, quite like Phoebe's, who turned out to be her sister. Her name was Miranda.
Miranda seemed very cute, but when I went to the bathroom (which was also glamorous), she was waiting outside.
"Meg,are you really good friends with Phoebe?" she said, smugly.
When I said yes, she told me that it was a pity. "She's horrible, always acting so smart. That's why I sabotaged her science project."
When Miranda realized what she had said, she clasped her hands over her mouth. "I didn't mean to say that!"
"That's fine." I replied. "I won't tell."
But that wasn't the first little lie someone had kept that night. While we were watching "The Cosy Couple", I noticed Freya was crying.
"I'm sorry." she said. "I just think this movie's so emotional...would you get me a tissue?"
Me and Shirley both went to get the tissues.Shirley started picking them up, and laughing.
"What's so funny?" Was she laughing at me?
"Freya. She's such a dork. And a wuss! She was bawling like a baby! Hehe-But don't tell her! Pinkie Swear, Meg?"
"Yep, Pinkie Swear!" I knew that it wouldn't stay a secret for long...
But probably the weirdest thing that happened that night was when Phoebe, the princess herself, talked to me. We were getting the sleeping bags ready on the mattresses, when she sighed, and said; "I'm sorry you had to be with them."
"With who?"
"With Freya, Shirley, and Miranda! I mean, sure they're nice and stuff, but they're gross! Look at them; they wouldn't know a makeover if it bit them on the nose, and honestly, I've never met anyone dumber than them! But hey, let's be nice and not let them know, yeah?"
"Erm, yep."
I was so going to regret hearing that. But as I left the room, I saw
It was midnight, and all the girls were asleep; except for Meg. Phoebe heard her talking strangely, so she woke up the other girls.
"What the heck is she saying?"
Meg tossed and turned, then said, "Miranda was jealous of her sister being so smart, so she sabotaged Phoebe's science project."
Miranda blushed. "That's so not true, I did not, she's just sleep talking!"
"And it must be true!" Phoebe said, glaring at Miranda.
"Sssshh,she's saying something else..." snapped Shirley.
"Shirley thinks Freya is a wuss and a dork, because she cried at "The Cosy Couple."
Freya's mouth dropped open. "Well, that's true! Shirley, how could you?"
Phoebe put a hand on her friend's shoulders. "Calm down, we all know that it's not real." But even when she said this, her eyes were darting nervously around the room.
Meg kept speaking.
"But Phoebe, the gorgeous host, whom you all thought was so angelic, said that everyone here was dumb and piggy and gross and dirty and unfashionable. But that's not all, when I left the bedroom, I saw her PICKING HER NOSE!"
Everybody was quiet except for Meg,who murmered and rolled over again.
Everybody looked at everybody, giving guilty looks, giving sorry looks, giving angry, accusing looks. Then, Miranda, Shirley and Freya all walked out, furious and sad and guilty, all at the same time.
Only Phoebe heard Meg sleep-talk for the last time that night.
"A-and my secret? My secret, my lie, is that whenever someone tells me a secret, or gossips, I blurt it out in my sleep. And the next morning, I never have any idea what i've said! Isn't that strange? Mmmmmm..."
Meg went home the next morning, pleased that the horrible girls had finally realized each others secrets. She wasn't nervous about her next sleepover, because she knew that no-one would invite her. And she was glad about this.
Meg had thoroughly enjoyed her first and last sleepover.
ThE eNd!
