The Big Day

I opened the door and the loud music blasted my ears ,I was blinded by the colourful lights. My heart began beating so fast as if I was on a roller coaster. People were dancing in their glittering shiny dresses. Today I knew I was going to beat Phenoplie… I had to beat her.I was going to be the winner of this costume party.

“Hey, how are you doing??” I knew she was going to talk to us. “I bet I am going to win, losers,” she said to me and my friends.

Suddenly my stomach growled loudly and people started staring at me, I rushed to the food table to chug down both food and drinks as my face turned bright red. I reached for the buttery popcorn, it was both salty and fresh, my body felt relaxed as if the popcorn was a medicine for my hunger.
