"Congratulations! You are the lucky 5th caller!"
My heart stopped. "Are you serious?!" I shrieked.
"Of course I am! This means you've won 4 tickets and backstage passes to see Nick Wallace
next weekend at The Orange Room!"
I screamed. "Thank you! Thank you so much!"
I hit the end call button on my phone and threw it on my bed. I was about to run
downstairs and tell my mom but my phone rang.
"Hello?!" I answered.
"JACKIE!" Hannah yelled.
"Hannah you won't believe it-" I was cut off.
"I won!" I started happy dancing around my room.
"Please tell me you're taking me so I won't start crying." she said.
"Duh! I'm taking you Hannah."
She screamed.
"Wait, who else are you taking?" she asked.
"Lorie and Georgia I think." I said.
"And it's next weekend?" she asked.
"YES! We have to go shopping tomorrow and find something to wear." I said.
"I'm short on cash..." she said; her voice falling.
"Can't you beg your parents for cash? C'mon, it's not every day you go to a Nick Wallace
concert, Hannah."
"It's not even worth the try. They think I'm greedy." she said.
"Well, I can buy you something. But you better pay me back." I said.
"Next time I get a babysitting job, all the money goes to you." she said.
"Okay good. Be at my house tomorrow at like 1:00 and my mom can drive us to the mall." 
"Are Georgia and Lorie coming too?" she asked.
"Georgia's still in Maine she won't be back until Tuesday. So she'll have to find her
outfit by herself. But I think Lorie can come. I'll have to call her." I said.
"Okay. See you tomorrow." she hung up.
The next day I waited in my front yard for Hannah. I had like $400 in my purse. I had been
saving up this money forever; I couldn't even name how many shifts I had to work at
Denny's to get this much. But I was determined to get the most kick ass, drop-dead, sexy
outfit for that concert. Nick Wallace was on the cover of every teen magazine. He was the
singer every girl had a poster of. And I had won tickets. They had been sold out for
weeks. I was so excited. And I got backstage passes! I could meet him, get an actual
autograph! Just then, Hannah showed up on her bike.
"I'm so sick of this stupid bike. Only two more months until I'm sixteen though." she
sighed. "I'll probably fail the test a bazillion times anyways. This bike is going to be
my permanent transportation."
"Way to be positive Hannah." I rolled my eyes.
"Did you get the actual tickets yet?" she practically squealed.
"Way to change the subject." I laughed. "But no, the radio guy called me this morning and
said the tickets are in the mail. They should be here in a few days." I said.
"They better be here by this weekend." she said.
"They will of course. They're in that fast shipping mail or whatever."
30 minutes later me and Hannah walked into the mall.
"What store should we go to first?" she asked.
"Lucy's." I said.
"Woah. If I get an outfit there, I might not ever be able to pay you back." she laughed.
"Well, we can find you an outfit somewhere else. But I'm getting mine there. This is going
to be THE concert of lifetime, and I need to look hot." I said laughing.
"Okay." she said laughing along.

Is it good?

I like it. But maybe you should add what the characters look like. You could add it as
you continue to write the story. Just a suggestion.

It's pretty good...I don't realy have any suggestions since everything's already there
and Lucy already said about the characters.

2 hours later me and Hannah sat down at a table in the food court. We both bought
strawberry milkshakes.
"So before the concert everyone should come to my house to get ready." Hannah said.
"That'd be fun!" I said, mindlessly stirring my milkshakes with the straw.
For the concert, I bought a graphic t-shirt and tight black pants from Lucy's. They had
cost me $150 but it was worth it. Hannah had a hard time finding something cheap but cute.
She finally ended up buying a black mini dress that was only $25.
"So, I think I have a necklace for you that would go with your outfit." she said.
"Really? Thanks!" I said.
"To borrow of course." she said, awkwardly making the clarification.
"Yeah, of course." I said.
We got up and threw our empty cups away and then headed outside to wait for my mom to pick
us up. 
The rest of the week dragged by slowly. I worked a couple of shifts at Denny's, but other
then that I really did nothing but stay at home. Finally, Saturday rolled around. I jumped
out of bed early. I spent the day restlessly excited. At 5:00 my mom dropped me off at
Hannah's. I walked up the brick driveway and to their front door. I rang the doorbell
twice and I heard Hannah's cocker spaniel barking. Seconds later, Hannah flew open the
"Jackie!" she squealed. "Georgia is already here but we're waiting for Lorie. Anyways,
come on in."
I stepped threw the threshold. Hannah led me upstairs to her room. Georgia was sitting on
the floor painting her toenails.
"Jackie!" she stood up and hobbled over to me. "I'm trying to walk without ruining my
nails." she laughed and hugged me.
"Hey Georgia. Long time no see. How was Maine?" I asked.
"It was awesome. I got my outfit for tonight at a cute little boutique there." she said.
"What are you wearing?" I asked.
She hobbled back over to Hannah's bed and took a shopping bag off of it and chucked it at
me. "This." she laughed.
I smacked me in the side of my head and hit the floor. I laughed and picked it up. Inside
was a baby pink dress with spaghetti straps and matching pink heels.
"Cute!" I commented.
The doorbell rang. "That must be Lorie." Hannah bolted out of the room.
I went into the bathroom next to Hannah's room and put my outfit on. I arrived here in old
sweats. I was still deciding what to do with my hair when Hannah, Lorie and Georgia pushed
open the door and came inside.
"Hey!" I yelled. "Ever heard of knocking?" 
"We're doing your hair and makeup so sit down. Lorie go get a chair or something." Hannah
Lorie left the room and came back with a stool that was in Hannah's room. She sat it down
in front of the mirror and Hannah pushed me onto it.
I looked at myself in the mirror. My long chestnut colored hair was still somewhat curled
from when I curled it this morning. I guess Hannah had other ideas for my hair though
because she was plugging in her straightner. I had a little bit of white eyeshadow on and
some mascara on my hazel eyes. But Lorie was shuffling through her cosmetic bag.
"If you guys get to do my hair and makeup, I get to do yours." I said.
"Na-ah." Hannah said.
I rolled my eyes. Hannah started to straighten my hair. I was always secretly jealous of
Hannah, Lorie and Georgia. They all had blonde hair and dark blue eyes. They could pass
for sisters. And I know it's weird to say this, but I always feel like I stick out
whenever I'm with the three of them. Lorie made me close my eyes so she could do my eye
makeup. I closed them and asked Georgia to bring me purse because my iPod was in it. A
minute later, I was lost in the music.

I do like it.
