                  jeans a skirt might be to
                  provocative.. or would it? No,
                  jeans are good.
                  Shannon looks to camera, while

                  wardrobe deciding what top to wear
                            SHANNON
                  We met online about 2 weeks. You
                  know how it goes, I liked their
                  profile, thought they were pretty
                  cute, so we started chatting, then
                  it just took off from there
        Shannon throws a top away into the wardrobe
                            SHANNON
                  Ugh! no no, i’ve got nothing to

                  don’t like my outfit?

        Shannon is still standing in front of her wardrobe with her
        eyes closed she then opens them looks down and shakes her
        head
                            SHANNON
                  Don’t be silly they wouldn’t be
                  that mean, they seem pretty nice
                  anyway, well I suppose anybody can
                  be nice over a text...No I’m sure
                  they’re just as nice in person.
                  Bugger it i’m just wearing this.
        Shannon pulls out a plead top and a black vest, stands in
        front of the mirror and holds the outfit up against her body
                            SHANNON
                  I’m sure they’ll like it and
                  anyways they haven’t told me what
                  we’re doing so how am I supposed to
                  know what to wear? Yes this will
                  just have to do.
        Shannon lays the clothes out on her bed then walks towards
        her mirror and sits on the floor, she leans over to her desk
        and grabs a big black bag
                            SHANNON
                  Right, time for makeup. I don’t
                  know why I’m bothering the probably
                  what notice the effort i’m putting
                  in to look nice, like always..
        Shannon applies her makeup

                    SHANNON
          Hopefully all this effort will be
          worth it though, I told myself if
          this date goes wrong that’s it no
          more dating for a long long
          time..OMG what if I become one of
          those crazy people with loads of
          animals..No there’s like 7 billion
          people on this earth so there’s
          obviously going to be someone out
          there for me if this date doesn’t
          work out.
Shannon stops applying her makeup and looks wide eyed into
the camera
                    SHANNON
          Omg! what if they’re really weird,
          like what if they’re into weird or
          freaky stuff....Nah I haven’t
          really gotten that vibe I’m sure
          they’re pretty normal,
Shannon continues to apply her makeup
                    SHANNON
          I mean they look normal.Plus it
          can’t be as bad as my last date.
          They took me to steak
          restaurant.... I’m a veggie and
          then they took me home invited
          themselves in and started flirting
          with my sister, I swear if Alex
          does that then I have officially
          lost all faith in humanity!.
Shannon finishes applying her make, she puts everything into
her makeup bag and puts it back on the desk, she gets up and
picks up her phone from the bed
                    SHANNON
          Shit! they’ll be here in 15
          minutes, I haven’t even done my
          hair yet!
Shannon stands in front of the mirror and messes with her
hair
                    SHANNON
          Bugger it! I’ll just wear it up, I
          don’t think they’re gonna care,
          they always wear a hat from what
          I’ve seen in there pictures anyway.

Shannon still standing in front of the mirror tying her hair
up and messes about with her fringe. looks to camera
                    SHANNON
          Is it sad nowadays people only
          usually meet online? I mean i’ve
          always pictured myself just meeting
          someone on the street like
Shannon steps back from mirror goes to bed, picks up her
clothes, she opens her wardrobe door and begins to get
changed
                    SHANNON
          you know the cliche of walking into
          someone but I suppose it’s not my
          fault the way society works... At
          the end of the day I just want to
          be happy...I mean I know you don’t
          actually need anyone to make you
          happy.
Shannon finishes getting changed and close the wardrobe door
and begins to check herself out in the mirror
                    SHANNON
          I’m just tired of feeling lonely..
Shannon stares blankly into the mirror *DOOR BELL RINGS*
Shannon quickly looks towards her bedroom door
                    SHANNON
          That’ll be them
Shannon quickly grabs a pair of boots and puts them, she
then walks towards the bedroom door and looks at camera
                    SHANNON
          well wish me luck!
Shannon smiles and walks outside of bedroom, through the
kitchen and towards the front door, before opening the door
she takes a deep breath and opens it. revealing ALEX small,
blue eyed and brown haired girl, smiling
                    ALEX
          Oh Hi!, thank god I thought I got

laugh

towards the pavement
                    ALEX

          your jeans! you’re making me wish
          i’d put in a little more effort. I
          have to say I was a bit nervous
          about meeting you today....
