Thump!Thump! There was a loud noise at the door, "Alright hold on, I'm coming." Tim yelled. Tim was in his early twenties, he had a blue mowhawk, always dressed shabby, and addicted to heroin. Tim walked to the door and opened it, "Yes." he said sarcastically. The man at the door asked if Gwen was home, "Are you Gwen's new boyfriend" Tim asked him. "Yes I am, my name is Tony" he replied. "Nice to meet you" Tim said. "No, Gwen is not here right now. I think she is still trying to get the job at that bar on 6th street" Tim replied. "Oh, well tell her that I came by and just to give me a call, OK?" Tony said. "One problem" Tim said. "Oh, and what's that?" Tony replied. "Didn't Gwen tell you?" Tim said "we don't have a phone, or a T.V or any other appliances, we are gutterpunks. Why do you think we live in this shed?" "Well I guess I will just come back later" Tony said with a strange look on his face. "Tim! Wakeup! " Gwen yelled. "Huh?" Tim replied. "Wakeup!," she yelled back. "Oh, OK" Tim yelled back. "That boy, Tony came by, looking for you, he thought we had a phone." Tim said chuckling. "You didn't tell him that we don't have a phone or the other stuff did you?!" Gwen yelled. "Um, well kinda yeah, why?" Tim questioned. " Why?" she yelled and stormed off. Gwen was the type of girl who didn't care what people thought of her, but she didn't like it when people would find out that she was poor. She had blonde hair, and was very thin. She wore sequined pants, and these funny looking shirts most of the time, unless she went out. "Gwen?, Mike, and Shirley are home. Look I'm sorry I told Tony." Tim said. "Send Shirley in." Gwen yelled back. "Shirley, Gwen wants you." Tim said. " I'll be righ... ... middle of paper ... ...know. Mike went on touring and Gwen and Shirley kept doing what they were doing. Gwen continued seeing Tony, and they finally decided to get married, it was ironic that Tony's family was a very wealthy family. When Gwen broke the news to Shirley, Shirley was happy and sad. She was happy that Gwen was getting married, but she was sad because she would have no one to live with. "Oh, Shirley, I am so sorry but I really want to get married and get away from this type of living and this apartment." Gwen sobbed " I know, I would too if I could but you go ahead, and get married, live a happy life." Shirley replied. "Thank you" Gwen said hugging Shirley. A month later Gwen and Tony were married and moved to Orange County, California. Shirley still resided in Berkeley, and seemed happy living alone, she had gotten a smaller apartment that wasn't so expensive.
