New Yeas Eve Enemies

The Time I Got Into a Fight

Three years ago on New Years Eve Sara’s number popped up on Betty’s caller id for the 5th time. She stared at it once again and then gave in and picked up.


“hi!!!” Sara’s voice sounded happier than ever.

“What’s up? How are you?” Sorry I missed your calls having a really crazy long day.”

“oh its totally fine. Listen I am having a birthday party tomorrow night and you need to come! You are the best belly dancer in the world and I want you to preform please pretty please dont say no!”

“uh wow short notice ummm yea I am gonna have to try to get out of my family party.”

“Yayyy thank you! You are awesome! Please come to Nila’ s  house. You remember her right?”

“Oh wow yea. I do. umm ok I will drop by for a while.”

As Betty hung up the phone she  recalled the last time Nila and Betty  had met up and how right off the bat they hated each others guts. Betty knew going over to Sara’s party would be a crazy idea. She called Michael, her  friend ans asked him if he would go with her. He was up for it as long as there was shots of course.

So the next day Betty rushed home from work and showered got dressed and waited for Michael’s honk.

A ten minutes ride and they were at Nila’s front door. The blasting music welcomed them and they walked in towards the crowd of  youngsters drinking and dancing. Betty saw Sara and she gave Betty a hug.  Betty wished Sara and Sara ushered Betty  towards the snacks. Michael was already out by the drinks. They hung around for a few and then Arabic music started playing and some girls at the party (who Betty later learned were Nila’s close friends) started to bellydance. She watched them and sipped her drink. At one point Michael pulled her onto the dance floor and she began dancing. Slowly one by one the girls backed out of the dance floor and all the guys started cheering Betty on. She danced her ass off and then went back to Michael. he seemed really mad and told her to leave. She  asked why but he wouldnt answer her. After much complaining he told her that Nila and her friends were talking shit about Betty and called Betty a whore and slut because of the way she danced and the fact that she came with him to the party,  meant that  she was probably fucking him. That of course made Betty  mad as hell and she  was about to approach them but Michael pulled her hand and said “No that is childish.”

Betty  knew they wanted her to leave the party so just to mess with them she didn’t leave in fact she drank ate and partied. Then betty who had a little too much to drink  said something really stupid. Something about being at a boring stupid party and wasting her New years with strangers. Of course Nila and her sidekicks heard this and made a big scene saying all kinds of profanity and telling Betty to get out. Sara started to cry and Nila got even more mad saying it was all Betty’s fault. She and her friends yelled and cursed at Betty. Saying things like  Betty is bar dancer and all other crap so Betty  threw a punch at Nila and the crowd went ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Nila screamed ouch and fell to the floor holding her lip. her friends just looked at Betty in shock. Betty stood there proud as fuck but her hand was killing her!

When no one moved for the next 2 minutes and Betty decided to flea, she  had to pull stupid Michael’s hand because he was frozen with his jaw on the floor. Betty walked out the door proud and smirking once she hit the stairs she  RAN to the car and they  drove off laughing. Betty and Michael  went to the hospital to get her  hand checked out  Betty sat there thinking Nila was made out of plastic for real No wonder everyone called her FAKE.

Back in the car they  blasted the music and drove to Betty’s own new years eve party where we hit the door a minute right before midnight and that was when Michael pulled Betty  close and kissed her .And began their Story.
