Changing the Past

I want to go back and change the past. What I said to Harry Styles in School was all a lie...
My name is Grace Shuatsi and I am 18 years of age. If I told people that I went to School with Harry Styles nobody would believe me. That I was not only friends with him, oh no, I was best friends. The closest friend anyone could have. But something went wrong on the night of the prom... Something which made Harry forget...

15. Changing the Past; Chapter 15; Bubblegum Bitch

We arrive at the competition 5 minutes before it starts. They won't call my name out for another 20 minutes as there is 16 contestants at the moment, including me. I have a quick run through of checks in the bathroom with Sarah.
"Make up?"
"Er, yep still in tact."
"Dress?"
"Whole."
"Jewellery?"
"10 bracelets, 1 small diamond ring and 3 neckless'."
"Ok that's everything. Can you please tell me what your singing?" she begs and I shake my head.
"No, wait and find out," I say and walk out the loos. Sarah follows me until I bump into Liam. He nearly spills his coffee and says,
"Oh right sorry. Wait... Your Grace!" I nod and smile.
"Ah, I've got to go and start judging. But your hair looks nice by the way," he says and walks through a door saying 'Staff Only'. He complimented my hair... I've hardly done anything to it.
"Wow... Liam's so dreamy," Sarah says, staring at the door he went through.
"Right. I thought you liked Harry?" I say, confused.
"Yeah, well I've moved on now. Liam has got to be mine. Does he still go out with Danielle?" I smile and say,
"God, Sarah, you need to keep up. No they broke up three weeks ago. Do you want me to chat him up for you?"
Her eyes glistened and she claps her hands together.
"That would be amazing!" She sings the last part and we laugh and walk off. We join the rest of the contestants in the waiting room and I look around at them until my gaze fell upon someone. Cara. She's still in the competition? Wait, she must've gotten daddy to buy her way in. Classic. She catches my eye and smirks at me as her name is read out.
"Hey Grace, it's you next," Sarah whispers to me as the room is so silent you could hear a pin drop. Oh no, I can feel a sick feeling well up in my stomach. I swallow hard and my hands become sweaty. This is my big chance.
"Sarah..." I say, 2 minutes later when my name is called out. Sarah looks worried to and she walks with me to the black curtain.
"Just... Do your best and think of that certain person when you are singing your song about... It'll give you the power and anger," she smiles weakly at me and walks away. "I'll be waiting with a hot chocy." I nod and walk out into the blazing lights. The same cool female voice booms out of the speakers again, asking the same questions.
"Hi, as you know, my name is Grace Shuatsi, I'm 18 and tonight I'm going to sing Bubblegum Bitch by Marina and the Diamonds," I say, spinning my micro-phone in my hands after speaking.
"And why did you chose this song?"
"Er, well I like the lyrics again..." I hear some laughter in the audience, "but I think there is someone in my life who is... Like that at the moment." The music starts and I think of the bubblegum bitch in my life right now: Cara.

(5 minutes later)

I walk off stage and see Sarah standing there with, what he said she would have, a hot chocolate. Mmmm. I sip it gently, not saying a word to Sarah even though she clears her throat loudly.
"You were amazing. You should've seen Harry's mouth, it was wide open with shock because you're so g-"
"Because you're so crap," Cara finishes off. She comes strutting around the corner with Amelia and Maya. They snigger.
"No, because you're so good, Grace," says Sarah, turning away from them.
I smile and say,
"Thank you, Sarah. I think that's really nice of you, un like SOMEONE else." I widen my eyes at Cara. She cackles and says,
"Oh, Grace. You're so funny!"
"Cara... Just to let you know, Harry. Is. Mine. Don't throw yourself one him like you did last time," I say, placing my hands on my hips.
"Oh, Grace, you've got it so wrong. Harry fell for ME, not ME who fell for HIM. Anyway, I'm dating Niall now so..." She's dating Niall, shed dating Niall. But didn't he say he loved me yesterday? I'm so confused right now, how do boys minds work?
"I loved your song Grace! Let me guess... You sung it about your self?" Cara says and cackles again. I notice Sarah boiling up, face flushed.
"Incase you have't noticed, Grace sung that song about YOU. Do you know why? Because YOU'RE the one who takes boys and spits them back out again. YOU'RE the one every boy dies for. But, most importantly, because YOU'RE THE BUBBLEGUM BITCH! YOU'RE THE BITCH!" Sarah tells and storms away, dragging me by the hand. I think Cara has just pressed the trigger: I've never seen her like this before. But she's totally right, Cara is the bubblegum bitch.
