8. Competition

*One week later*

It was a week since Abby found out that I was homeless and I had started living with her. Things were great. It was just before we were opening the cafe and I was talking to Dave. He is so sweet! We talked about all types of topics. I couldn't help but start to have a small crush on him.

Then I got on stage and exchanged good mornings with the band. We decided what I would sing for the day when Amy, the drummer, mentioned a singing competition in a few weeks she had heard about. You can win money!!! I could enter and win money to pay Abby because I did not want to take advantage of her good nature. The prize money was $2000! I was so happy. I sang What makes you Beautiful by One Direction.

"Your insecure, don't know what for

Your turning heads when you walk thought the door-oor

Don't need makeup, to cover up

Being the way that your are is enough

Everyone else in the room can see it, everyone else, but you

Baby you light up my world like nobody else

The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed

The way you smile at the ground

You don't know oh ooh, you don't your beautiful

If only you saw what I can see

You'd understand why I want you so desperately, right now I'm looking at you and I can't believe, you don't no oh ooh

You don't know your beautiful oh ooh

That's what makes you beautiful!"

I finished my day at work and said my goodbyes to everyone. I even hugged Dave! I hopped into Abby's car and told her my plan for the singing competition.

"That's a great idea! It sounds really fun!" she  exclaimed. She's so supportive and the best friend I have ever had.

We got to her apartment and I decided to organize my clothes in the dresser that was in my room. Now I have 5 shirts, two pairs of pants, and two coats. I had just got new underwear the week before too.

I remember clothes shopping with my parents. After I turned 13 they didn't pay for my clothes or anything else anymore or give me gifts. I had to earn money by myself. When I went clothes shopping my mom would drop me off at Target, Walmart, or a thrift store. Then if I wasn't done by the time she wanted me to go she grabbed my wrist and pulled me out. Sometimes there would be slight bruising on my wrists, but I had to deal with it.

Suddenly I heard Abby calling happily. "Hey Angel Dave is on the phone for you." She winked too because I think she could tell I liked him. I hoped it was not too obvious though.

I was shocked he called me. I went and got the phone. He wanted to just talk for a little bit, but we ended up talking for 2 hours. We just talked about random stuff going on. I couldn't help blur blush sometimes even though I was just on the phone. After that I got ready for bed. I sang quietly because Abby was already asleep. "And they say, she's in the class a team. Stuck in her day dream, but lately..."

I heard a noise so I quickly stopped and went to sleep. Everything was finally working out.
