(Amber’s best friend since Primary School)
Pauline closed down her laptop and plugged in her iPod
She listened to country artists and was thought to be odd
As well as reading the classics and talking like a dictionary
Mathematically challenged neither could she be called arty
From an early age Amber had taken her under her wing
Shown her how to study, enjoy life and find time for laughing
She loved being round Amber’s house
Where she didn’t have to be as quiet as a mouse
Because her parents worked from home every day
There was no leeway for any type of horseplay.
She moved from her desk and bounded on to her bed
Her turn would come Amber had said
She didn't want to go out with a blockhead
She started to daydream about a boyfriend to cuddle
She checked the book titles on her index on the Kindle.
She would lose herself in one the great romantic fictions
Not Dickens, she was in the mood for an Austen.
