When the Lights Go Down by Heidi BettsToday is Gwen Thomass 31st birthday. Shes given herself T-minus 24 hours to change her life.
8:00 a.m.: Call out sick from library.
8:01 a.m.: Scour phone book for Emergency Beauty Technicians.
10:00 - Noon: Hair. Goodbye, mousy. Hello, auburn.
Noon - 5:00 p.m.: Nails. Makeup. Clothes. Be bold!
10:00 p.m.: Arrive at The Hot Spot. Pretend youve gone clubbing before.
11:00 p.m.: Fight polyester lizards advances - and the disappointment of a failed mission.
11:30 p.m.: Revel in being rescued by Ethan Banks. Dont let the sexy club owners chivalry prevent mission completion.
When the lights go down: Lose virginity...finally.
In the light of a new day, something had indeed changed for Gwen: She was in over her head....

When I wake in the night I'm reaching for you There's a place in my dreams where you're still in the room And you're next to me somehow. There are times when I sleep on your side of the bed Now since you've been away it's as close as I get Oh well, I should've learned by now. Morning light Every now and then I start to feel alright Days are going by, I know I'll heal in time Never thought I'd be scared of the dark. Now I only feel it when the lights go down Feel it when the lights go down Only get that feeling when the night rolls around Feel it when the night rolls around. There are times I get drunk when I'm all by myself Cause it helps me forget you're with somebody else Well, it don't really work that well.
