9. Beautiful singing and Grace

Ember and I walked out of the locker room as the bell rang. "I can't wait for Drama!" Ember squealed. I laughed, "I wonder what we have to do today." I say. I loved Drama because I love singing and, well it also might be because Kendall is in that class as well. We to the auditorium and pushed the doors open. We headed down the stairs and towards the stage. Our teacher Ms. Vial turns to us, "Do we have a new student?" She asks raising her eyebrows. "Yes, I'm Ember." Ember says. "So, do you act or sing?" She questions looking Ember up and down. "I act." She replies. "Great, you two girls have a seat and wait for class to begin." She says with a smile. We walk over to the seats and sit down in the third row. Kids slowly pile in and take a seat wherever they want. I see someone with brown hair sit down in front of us. I realize that it's Kendall and start blushing like crazy, I make myself calm down and relax. He didn't even know I was there or that I existed so there was no reason to go nuts! 

The bell rang and Ms. Vial went up and sat down on the edge of the stage. "Okay class, today we are going to be doing duets and improvising scenes." She says. I stare at her. I didn't want to sing today in front of everyone, much less with someone. Great, now she could at least assign us partners so I wouldn't have to look like a complete fool standing there waiting for the last person to pick a partner walk over to me and be stuck with me. "Okay, I've written your names on the sheet of paper next to me and your partners name will be next to yours." Someone's hand shoots up in the air. Ms. Vial calls on them and they say, "We have an odd number of actors so will there have to be a group of three?" "No, we have a new student, Ember, so now we have all even for acting and singing." She says with a smile.

Everyone gets up and stats walking over to the paper. Ember and I get up and walk over, I finally get to the paper and find my name. Next to mine was, oh my gosh! There is no way this is possible! "So i guess your my partner." I hear a guy say. I turn to face Kendall, "Yeah." I say quietly. He obviously didn't wan to sing with me. "So let's go over here and pick a song." He says. I really couldn't tell if he was mad about being partnered with me or not. Whatever I thought, I'll just make him think I don't want to be partners with him. We walk over to a section of chairs away from everyone else. "So do you have any songs in mind?" I say quietly not looking at him. "I was hoping we could sing some Neon Trees, or, I know they're lame and old, but I like Daughtry." He says. I smile, "I like Daughtry." I say.

We start talking about what song by them and eventually decided on Home. We pick out what parts who's going to sing and soon we have to go back to our seats, Ms. Vial doesn't let us practice with our partners, she wants it to be spontaneous . I know Kendall can sing, but he's never heard me sing and I hope that I don't sound really bad like I do some days. A few groups of singers and actors have gone when Ms. Vial calls our names. We head up to the stage and grab the microphones. Ember smiles at me and Kendall and I take center stage. I look out at all the people, I breathe in and I hear Kendall start.

"I'm staring out into the night,

Trying to hide the pain.

I'm going to the place where love

And feeling good don't ever cost a thing.  

And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain."   

  It's my turn to sing, I start out sweet and quiet and start slowly getting louder,

"Well I'm going home,

Back to the place where I belong,

And where your love has always been enough for me.

I'm not running from.

No, I think you got me all wrong.

I don't regret this life I chose for me.

But these places and these faces are getting old,

So I'm going home, Well I'm going home."  

We both start singing,

"The miles are getting longer, it seems, 

The closer I get to you." 

Kendall sings this part,

"I've not always been the best man or friend for you."  

I sing this part,

"But your love remains true.

And I don't know why."  

Kendall sings this,

"You always seem to give me another try."  

Now we both start singing, mixing our voices into one.

"So I'm going home, Back to the place where I belong,

And where your love has always been enough fro me.

I'm not running from.

No I think you got me all wrong.

I don't regret his life I don't regret this life I chose for me.

But theses places and these faces are getting old,"  

We raise our voices just a little,

"Be careful what you wish for,

'Cause you just might get it all,

You just might get it all.

And then some you don't want.

Be careful what you wish for,

'Cause you just might get it all,

You just might get it all, yeah.  

Oh, well I'm going home,

Back to the place where I belong,

And where your love has always been enough for  me.

I'm not running from.

No, I think you got me all wrong.

I don't regret this life I chose for me.

But these places and these faces are getting old,

I said these places and these faces are getting old,

So I'm going home.

I'm going home."  

I bring the microphone don to my side and the whole class erupts with applause. "I didn't know you could sing like that!" Kendall says to me. "I didn't know you were that good either. " I say with a smile. We take our seats and Ember looks at me, "Roni! You're great!" She cheers. I laugh. "Yeah right." I say. I settle into my seat and soon Ember is called up. Her partner is this girl Haylie. And they do a scene about a little girl who's told she can't have any candy, Ember being the child and Haylie being the mother telling her she can't have the candy. Everyone has gone and Ms. Vial praises us, and then the bell rings. We head out of the auditorium and I go to my locker. Ember disappeared in the crowd. It didn't bother me, I knew there was no way she would be by my side all the time. I spun open my locker and threw all of my things inside and grabbed my homework. I closed my locker and headed towards the door when I was stopped by Grace. She pulled my by the arm and pushed me. "You and your friend thought you could get away with calling me names? Huh?" She yells. Wow, I thought, she still mad about that. I don't respond to her. She smirks at me, "Did you think that Jessica pouring paint in you was your punishment?" She asks. "Think again. She says. She hits me in the stomach and I fall back onto the cold tile in the hallway.
