I was playing Monopoly. I really wanted to stop and go to bed, but the game went on and on.
Smill, Chris and I went to Katie's house for the evening while her parents were out. (Smill, Chris and Katie all being people in my school year.) Despite the fact that Katie doesn't fancy Chris, I certainly don't fancy Chris and I don't fancy Katie either, we had the beginnings of a threesome. He was on top of her, touching her, and I lay beside them, kissing her neck occasionally. However, he called it off, kissed us both, and apologised to me. "You're a married woman now," he said. (Well, I suppose it's true, technically . . .)
"Yeah," I said regretfully. (Ok, whatever happened to my usual policy of upholding my monogamy at all costs?)
Just before midnight, Smill, Chris and I left. Katie's parents hadn't returned yet, but she insisted that she'd be ok on her own, and went to bed.
My brother Noj, Helen G (who was also in my year at school), some bloke and myself were walking up Cherry Dene (a track near the castle where I used to live). There was a big building to one side of it, where Noj was supposed to attend a Duke of Edinburgh meeting, but it turned out that he didn't have to go. When we got to the top, Helen G and the bloke were to drive into a different country, which began only a few miles away. I was concerned that they wouldn't have any money in this country's currency, but they assured me that they did.
(Weirdly enough, the next day I saw Helen G for the first time in over a year.)
I was in the basement at school. Bryn, my boyfriend, found me there and told me that my mother was outside, ready to give us a lift hoew. But when we left the building, she had gone.
There was something wrong with my ankh. Noj admitted to borrowing it, which could have been the cause. Mum tried to fix it, but it kept getting worse. She stretched the chain over some pins in a board, but I insisted that she didn't. "If the ankh breaks, I'll lose Bryn," I said, half-hysterical. She stopped stretching it.
