Scarlet -- Scenario IV

As she arrived back at her apartment Scarlet felt a sense of happiness for the first time in New York. She had finally met someone who she had something in common with. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad after all. That’s what she was here for, to meet new people and start her own life in the Big Apple.

The next morning Scarlet woke up with a new outlook on New York. She was going to have fun, make friends, and make the best of the experience. It was New Years Ever, what better day to start out new. With no specific plans for the night, except of course to watch the ball drop in Times Square, she figured she would roam the town in search of the best New Years events she could find.

In preparation for the big night ahead of her Scarlet decided to go shopping. She had to get the perfect New Years dress and of course cute shoes to match. She got her hair and nails done just for the big event. On her way back to her apartment she saw posters along walls and covering the sidewalks. They read “New Years Eve Bash in Central Park. Don’t Miss It!” Now she was even more excited than before.

As soon as she arrived at her apartment she started getting ready. She slipped on her new dress and shoes and headed out the door. “Taxi!” she yelled as one came to a screeching halt in front of her. “Central Park please!” she requested. Just the cab ride was making her anxious she couldn’t wait to see what it would be like.

As she paid the cab driver and stepped out she looked out upon Central Park and seen hundreds of people. It was exhilarating meeting so many new people and possibly making a few new friends. If was amazing. There were fireworks and tons of people to mingle with and hear their stories of New York. She finally felt like she fit in.

Everyone at Central Park was headed to Times Square to see the ball drop. Scarlet had always remembered being at home with her family and watching it on television as they celebrated the New Year. As she followed the crowd she could feel the excitement of everyone around her. When she arrived at Times Square she was amazed. It was even greater than she could imagine. Seeing it on TV was nothing in comparison.

Suddenly it was time to begin counting down. “10, 9, 8, 7, 6…” it was so close. “5, 4, 3, 2, 1.” There was cheering and excitement as fireworks exploded all around. It was a new year and it was time for a new start. Scarlet was so excited to start over. From now on she was going to take New York by storm and have fun in her new life.
