She numbered her list. It read:
1. Get dad to buy me a 5mp phone. The pics we took this time didn't look that nice. We need much more than just 3 pics together.
2. Lose weight. The next time I meet him, I want to shock him. I want to look stunning :)
3. Get something done to my hair. The travel made my curls crazy. I wonder what he thought. Must find a way to make it look atleast presentable if not stunning.
4. Learn to stay quiet. He must have thought all I can do is talk and talk about nonsense.
5. Carry sneakers. I went trekking in flip-flops...He must have thought I was a dumbwit. I must pack days before so I can think of such things.
6. HAVE TO GET MORE MATURE.
She had the latest 5mp phone. She had lost 7kgs and was still losing. She found the perfect products that suited her hair. She had somewhat became quiet. She had 3 new pairs of sneakers.
A lot had changed. She no longer had a reason to meet him.
