Unfortunately though Claire seemed to take this as a challenge. An unspoken competition formed between the two girls and each tried to outdo each other for the rest of the school season. This, of course, didn’t set too well with Melissa though. But by the end of the school year she was starting to get use to her friend’s unusual dress. They had even started talking again and had several things planned for the summer.
It was the last day of school when Claire and one of the boys she knew from the seventh grade approached her.
“Hi Brandi, love your outfit.” She said motioning at Brandi’s hot pants and halter. “Just get it?”
“Yeah.” Brandi said tossing her hair over her shoulder. “I figured I needed some shorts for the summer.”
“Look, I’m having a party to celebrate the end of another boring school year.” Claire said. “I though I’d ask you if you want to come. That is, if you don’t, like, have a book reading to go to with four-eyes.”
“I wish you wouldn’t pick on Melissa!” Brandi told her. “She’s never done anything to you!”
“Whatever!” Claire said blowing it off. “So, do you want to come or not?”
Brandi knew that Melissa would be pissed at her if she went, but it was her first chance to go to a real party. A real party! With boys and girls her own age, not like her birthday parties with her aunts and mom.
