Sweet 15

"Is it going to hurt?" I asked, as I sat in the chair with my feet dangling off the ground. "Not too bad." my brother's fiance told me. Two ladies came over and began to prepare the guns.

I shifted nervously  in my chair.

I watched as they placed the earrings of my choice into the guns.

I closed my eyes as the centered the guns over the marked places on my ears.

"Just so you know," I  said, "I feel like I'm gonna pass out."  "Don't worry, it won't hurt."


I waited for the excruciating pain to come.

I opened one eye. "That's it?" "Uh-huh" they answered

Then it happened. the room started to spin.  I leaned my head back onto the wall, and held onto dad's arm, hoping this would go away. Everything kept spinning.  I could hear people talking, but things sounded so muffled.

I took a drink of KT"s soda water.

The room kept spinning.

I opened both eyes and everything was blurry.

"Does this always happen?" I asked, becoming a little bit concerned."Oh,sometimes"

Finally the dizziness stopped, I could hear fine,  the blurriness cleared up, and I was the owner of a shiny pair of earrings.
