The M Factor: It's Now or Never

Love and war do not mix well together.

The M Factor competition is all-out war, as talented people from all over the continent compete for the chance of a lifetime. I still don't know how I am even here, among the talented.

Love isn't something that you could merely push away. It isn't a feeling you could just ignore. Which is why I struggle between the balance of love and war.

Which will win in the end?


12. Threats

     "You like Jace," Kat claimed in a low voice when we were standing in front of the mirrors in the bathroom. 


     "Do not!" I protested like a little kid. 


    "It is so obvious!" Kat snorted. 


   "It is?" I gasped, blood rushing to my face. 


    Kat bursted out into a cackle, pointing at me. "It wasn't until now! You just told me you liked him!" 


   "That didn't mean anything," I scolded, turning back to the mirror and fluffing my hair. 


  Kat imitated my shocked face, with a laugh following. "It wasn't that bad," I scoffed. 


   "Yes it was." 


    "No! And besides, he's dating Olivia." 


   "So you admit it?" 


    "I thought we already went over it." 


   "That is so cute!" Kat gushed. 


    "Not when I can't be with him." 


    "Like the wisest men on earth once said, let it be ," she sang the last part, quoting Let It Be by the Beatles. 


    "You're such a loser," I giggled. 


    "C'mon. Why got to go out and see you love," she cooed obnoxiously. I rolled my eyes and let Kat drag myself. As we walked out of the bathroom, I heard the unclicking of a stall. 




   "Such a lie," I giggled. 


   "Dead honest," Kat promised, throwing her hands up. 


    "I can't believe you did that," Jace laughed. 


    Olivia strutted back into our group, sitting herself down in between Jace and I, holding his hand and smiling flirtatiously at him. He grinned absentmindedly back, looking as if his mind was somewhere else. I hadn't noticed I was staring right at Olivia, while Jace was turned around, until she mouthed out to me 'I heard.'


    She heard? It was an unmistakable reading. But what could she have heard that she prided herself in so much? 


    The click from the bathroom. 


    She knew I liked Jace! She was aware of the fact that I was in love with her boyfriend! And who knows what she'll do with this information? I quickly gestured nonchalantly for her to talk to me in private. We stood in unison, drawing attention from Jace and Kat. Olivia and I walked to a obscured corner, and she turned and crossed her arms. "What?" 


    "You heard what?" 


    "Somebody has a little crush," she smirked. "And pretty soon, everybody will know who that little 'crush' is." 


    "But... I thought...I- but we- we promised! In the judge's house!" I stammered. 


    "Exactly- in the judge's house. These are the live shows. Everything is different. And you're going down, Carter." 


     "Please! Don't say anything. I'll do anything- just please." I begged, not wanting Jace to find out. I'd rather have our friendship than any awkwardness. 


    "Fine...I supposed there is one thing you could do..." Olivia shrugged, as if she had planned it out already. "Stay away from Jace."
