Big hair day chapter 6


A George Cooper film

We stop work at five o’clock. What a day! I feel very tired.

I walk slowly to the police station to get my bag. Next to the police station, a man speaks to me.

‘Miss Reynolds? Is that you?’

I look up and see a man on a big motorbike. It’s George!

I smile and go up to him. ‘Thank you for your text,’ I say.

He smiles at me. He looks very good in black on his motorbike. ‘I’m just doing my job, Miss Reynolds.’

He’s looking at my hair. Is that why he’s smiling like that? Or does he like me?

‘Please call me Sophia,’ I tell him.

‘Well, thank you for your help today, Sophia,’ he says. He looks at my hair again. ‘Your hair is very… big this evening,’ he says.

I laugh. ‘Yes,’ I say. ‘I’m having a big hair day. They’re making a film in Chapelfield Park. I’m an extra in it.’

‘You’re going to be famous then?’ he asks.

I think about Fabio Facelli and his cold eyes. But George is smiling at me and I don’t feel sad. ‘No,’ I say, ‘I’m not going to be famous.’

George looks at me. ‘Are you going to get your bag?’ he asks.

‘Yes,’ I say, but I don’t want to walk away from him. I don’t want him to go.

Does he know what I’m thinking? ‘Do you want to go for a drink?’ he asks. ‘Get your bag first. I can wait for you.’

I smile a very big smile. ‘Yes,’ I say. ‘Yes, please!’

‘Good,’ he says.

We don’t just have a drink. We talk and we laugh a lot. And he kisses me. It feels like a film, when the boy gets the girl. Only this isn’t a Fabio Facelli film, it’s a George Cooper film.

George Cooper films are very good!
