My name is Stephanie and I am the daughter of a celebrity couple in Hollywood. We live in a mansion overlooking Los Angeles. My parents, who are active in the film industry, often entertain through parties at home. My older sister, Felicity, who is twenty-five, has always been a movie star. I go to college and when I had just started college Felicity thought that I should get a girlfriend.
I had nothing better to do and used an app to find a lesbian girl who was my age and in the neighborhood. I found one who even went to my school but she did not have a picture so for me it was a blind date when we met.
Outside the movies where we were suppose to meet she put her hands in front of my eyes from behind. As one does when the other one shall guess who it is. It was one of my classmates, Sidney. One of those who definitely is not a lesbian and she is also my room mate. What was she doing there? Why had she been looking for a lesbian girl online? But what do I know, so I presumed that we were on a serious date. We ate at a restaurant with white tablecloths before going to the movies.
“We will have a great relationship!”
Said Sidney suddenly during the dinner, although I did not have any special features then. Which I do now, asymmetric bangs and highlights in the hair.
Sidney never asked for a second date and later I began dating a guy, Jayden. I met him the first time outside my house, he was just around. We are the same age. Once, he drove a sports car alone with me and we were out all night. He says the most pretty things to me, and knows precisely what I need to hear. I thought that as soon as he would regard me as his girlfriend, I could bring him to school, to show off.
Once when we were outside of Jayden’s school. There were a few other students rushing down a hill beside the road where we stood. The dry sand rustled, then Jayden pulled off a wig with all the curls on. Beneath, his hairstyle was reminiscent of Sidney’s. She had cut her hair short the same day Jayden showed up. Then he tore off pieces that he had attached to the sides of the nose and covered with make-up. The nose was actually thin but had appeared wider with the pieces in place.
-Hi sweetie! Said Sidney, as she talks in school with her standard voice. I was a little traumatized so did not register a lot of visual input. So I do not know if her sister, who is a Makeup Artist, had done more things to establish Jayden.
-Told you we would be a great couple. We can have a secret relationship. But you must not tell the others that I am dating you. For your information, Jayden is one of my middle names.
I told her at once. -No. If you want to continue, then you have to tell everyone about us. That we have been together most of our time in college. And you must go to the dance with me. And hold hands in school.
I said, and knew that she would not agree but she did.
So we went to the dance and we were a cool couple seated in the back of the classroom and everything.
