Always Smile

Amore was a normal girl. She fits in and always knew how to light up a room. But what people don't know is that not everything is perfect in her world... and this secret may lead to her end...


5. Because of You

I woke up and looked at my Spongebob clock. It read 6:32. And before you get judgmental, I just think that the little square guy is adorable. Yawning, I got up and took a quick shower. I let my natural curls fall against my back and looked through my closet for something to wear. Finally, I decided on a long sleeve, white sweater. I paired it with dark skinny jeans and white suede booties. I picked up my phone and went through my texts. I had one from last night:

Charlotte: Meet us at Starbucks by 9 sharp!.Make sure you bring the letter ~xoxo.

I smiled while shaking my head. I went downstairs into the kitchen and started making breakfast. I made  two omelets. When I finished, I looked at the clock. It was a quarter to eight and my mother came downstairs yawning. She smiled when she saw that I set the table and sat down. As usual, we caught up on each others lives.

"So what are you doing today?" She asked while chewing a piece of food.

"Meeting up with the girls at 9 to discuss a letter to that boy band One Direction." I said sighing at the last part.

"You don't like them?" She questioned again, this time while pouring orange juice.

"Well I can't dislike them as people, because I don't know them. But their music just doesn't capture my attention." I replied, quickly finishing my food.

She chewed thoughtfully. After a while, she said "Why don't you look to their music with no prejudice. You mostly listen to hip-hop and rap. Your favorite rapper was amazing, but he is dead so you won't be hearing any new material. So why don't you just give them a chance?"

I pondered her words. Especially as she referred to my favorite rapper of all time- Tupac. I looked at the time, it was 8:52. I jumped up and grabbed the letter, my purse, and sprinted out the door.

"See you later mom!" I called

"Bye baby! Think about what I said!" She said while waving. I pulled my car out of the driveway and began heading to Starbucks, speeding most of the way. I got there just in time and out of breath. I waved to the girls and ordered a iced coffee. Once I got my order and paid, I sat down at the table next to Rose.

Before my butt even hit the seat, I was bombarded with questions.

"Did you bring the letter?"

"What did you write?"

"Can I see it?"

So I took out the letter and placed it in the center of the table. April quickly grabbed it and scanned it, Raelynn reading along with her. After they finished, they passed it to Charlotte and Rose, who also read it with rapt attention. Rose handed me the letter- there was a moment of silence. Then Charlotte spoke up,

"If we don't win after what you wrote then I will shave off all of my hair.". The other girls nodded along, except Raelynn. We looked at her and she defended herself by saying,

"I love the poem too but I think I love my hair a lot more thankyouverymuch!!"

We giggled at her response. After about half an hour of talking about school, clothes, and whatever else was on our mind, The girls and I got into our separate cars and all went to the  post office. There, we mailed in our entry and hung out at my house, painting our nails and just being our crazy selves. Summer vacation had just started and we didn't have a care in the world. The rest of the week went by with a blur. The girls and I hung out almost everyday, getting closer than ever.

One Wednesday morning, I went outside in my robe and checked the mail. As I leafed though the junk mail, I came across a very interesting letter from London. I opened it and found out we had won the contest! I mentally screamed in my head, I was going to be able to hang out in London with my four best friends and... the boys. I sulked as I thought about that last part. I sent the girls a text telling them to meet over at my house ASAP then got dressed in a tank top and denim shorts. I put my hair in a low, side ponytail and styled my bangs emo-like. The doorbell rang and I quickly opened it. The girls rushed in and Raelynn grabbed the letter from the dining table. She read it out loud, and my house was filled with screams.

"I CAN'T BELIEVE WE WON! AND ITS ALL BECAUSE OF YOU AMORE!!" April yelled at the top of her lungs. I giggled and the Three Musketeers danced around as Raelynn and I shook our heads and laughed. This was going to be a fun summer...

~~A/N: Sorry for the boring chapter, I just needed to set up the phase for the story. Random fact: Tupac died September 13 sixteen years ago. He really was one of the greatest rappers of all time :) Check out his song 'Changes.' If you want to know who sang any of the songs from the chapter names, just ask away in the comments. Thanks for reading! xoxo <(^.^<)
