8. The Scary Surprise

(Naomi's Point of View)

I open my eyes and smile big. I was in my new room surrounded by my Christmas presents and my new clothes. It had been 2 weeks since the Christmas party and I still hadn't opened up my presents. We had started school again yesterday which was sort of a downer but worth it. I haven't ever been this happy before. I haven't ever gotten up early for school either. But hey there was a first for everything. I put on a loose golden plaid shirt, dark brown jeggings, dark brown lace up boots and thick beige socks underneath. I let my longer wavy hair go free and simply put a gray beanie over it. I put on a peach lip gloss and sat down to start unwrapping. Harry's locket, by the way, was around my neck. I opened up Zayne's and Perrine's present first. They got me a new pair of head phones and a new black coat that was fluffy on the inside. Louis and Elea got me a big fluffy bear that had a giant H on its belly and a box of chocolates. Liam and Elizabeth got me new flats for my new dancing production I'm staring in. Being a theatre major, I have to not only act but sing and dance too which isn't exactly easy for me. As well they got me a new pair of black leggings. Finally Niall and Maria got me a box of Mexican Candy, two sparkly rings, and a picture of all of us together when I was able to get out of my hospital bed back when I was broken. I took the head phones, the coat, the flats, leggings, and the rings with me. As well I chewed on one small piece of chocolate. I shoved all of my new merchandise in my messenger bag and walked downstairs. Harry sat on the house half way asleep. He wore a gray shirt, dark blue jeans, gray converse, and a light brown coat. I shook his shoulder. "Harry. Harry babe c'mon let's get going." He yawned and stood up. "What's with the need to get up so early Naomi? We shouldn't be leaving here for another two hours." I shook my head and smile. "I have get together with my group. Remember the musical we're doing?" "Oh yeah I remember. Am I going to see you sing and dance?" He gave me a puppy dog look and wrapped his arms around my waist. I pulled away and giggled. "Not a chance Harry. C'mon let's get going." I repeat again. Harry sighs loudly but grabs my hand and leads me outside. I almost step on the medium sized box that was waiting on the porch but notice it in time. "Who's it for?" He asks casually but curiously. I look around the box but nothing was marked on it. "I'm not sure. Let's open it when we get back. It could be for your mum." "Yeah. Did she tell you when she was coming back from her sister's house?" He asks. I think for a second. "I think Friday." "So I have you to myself for 3 days?" He says mischievously. I giggle and kiss his cheek. "Think again. I've got practice after school until Saturday. I guess you can stay and watch me." His eyes warm as he brings me in for a kiss. We separate when someone loudly honks their horn. It was Niall and Maria. "Need a lift?" Maria calls from Niall's convertible. Me and Harry nod and hop into the car. "Thanks Mar. It feels like I haven't talk to you in years. How's Emilio?" Emilio was Maria's little brother. He had been sick ever since November. I was expecting Maria to get depressed or sad but instead her smile brightens. "He's all better. The doctors managed to get the bug out of him. I just couldn't believe he was actually awake for more than fifteen minutes. But they said he's making a full recovery. He was actually asking about you." I blush a bit. Me and Emilio were like siblings, well to me. To him, well let's just say he's very friendly. "Oh really? Well maybe I'll have to swing by. Are you staying after to practice for the musical today?" I ask. Maria was in the musical to. We both played the lead singers in the song Cell Block Tango for The Chicago Musical. I was playing Velma, and Maria was playing Hunyak. My other friends Elizabeth, Perrine, and Elea were in the musical too. Elizabeth played Liz, Perrine played Mona, and Elea played Annie. A girl named Hannah played June. "Yeah. I need to work on my Hungarian. I really hope our musical will be a success." I look up at Harry and squeeze his hand. He smiles and squeezes back. "Me to Maria. Me to."

School seemed to go on forever. Then finally the bell rang. I hurried and put my stuff in my locker. I pulled out my clothes and ran to the girl's locker room. I changed into my thigh lengthed black leggings and my tight black beater, and tied my flats. I hurried to the auditorium. I could see the boys sitting in the back room enjoying themselves. I smile at them before turning and putting my hair up in a messy bun. I walk towards the other girls who were talking and drinking water. "Hey." I said. Elizabeth smiles at me. Her hair was put up into a high bun too. She wore a loose black crop top that ended at her last rib. Under that she wore black tights that went all the way up her stomach and black leggings that were cut into shorts. I hug her. Maria wore a black leotard with tight black shorts over it. Elea wore a loose black shirt that was torn in the back and black leggings. Perrine wore a black crop top and high waist black shorts. Each of them wore the same ballet flats as me. I said hi to the rest of the girls and we all did a few stretches. "Is everyone ready." Our theatre teacher, Mr. Bronze, called. Hannah came rushing in. She looked almost identical to Elizabeth except her hair was darker and her eyes were grayer compared to Elizabeth's bright blue eyes. Hannah wore long black leggings and a short sleeved black shirt that tucked into the leggings. "Sorry I'm late." She said softly. Mr. Bronze rubbed his eyes. "It's alright let's just begin Kay? Alright positions everyone. And begin!" I sat down in my chair and turned my head so that I could see Maria who was sitting next to me. My legs were spread open. The music began and we each got into character. (I'll write down the lyrics and who would be saying it)

(Elizabeth Spoken)
You know how people
Have these little habits
That get you down. Like Bernie.
Bernie liked to chew gum.
No, not chew. POP. So I came home this one day,
And I am really irritated, and I'm
Looking for a little bit of sympathy
And there's Bernie layin'
On the couch, drinkin' a beer
And chewin'. No, not chewin'.
Poppin'. So, I said to him,
I said, "You pop that
Gum one more time..."
And he did.
So I took the shotgun off the wall
And I fired two warning shots...
... into his head.

[ALL]
He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd have been there
If you'd have heard it
I betcha you would
Have done the same!

(Elea Spoken)
I met Ezekiel Young from
Salt Lake city about two years ago,
And he told me he was single
And we hit it off right away.
So, we started living together.
He'd go to work, he'd come home, I'd
Fix him a drink, We'd have dinner.
And then I found out,
"Single" he told me?
Single, my ass. Not only
Was he married
... oh, no, he had six wives.
One of those Mormons, you know. So that
Night, when he came home from work, I fixed him his drink as usual.
You know, some guys just can't hold
Their arsenic.

[ALL]
He had it coming
He had it coming
He took a flower
In it's prime
And then he used it
And he abused it
It was a murder
But not a crime!

(Hannah Spoken)
Now, I'm standing in the kitchen
Carvin' up the chicken for dinner,
Minding my own business,
And in storms my husband Wilbur,
In a jealous rage.
"You been screwin' the milkman,"
He says. He was crazy
And he kept on screamin',
"you been screwin the milkman."
And then he ran into my knife.
He ran into my knife ten times!

[ALL]
If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it
I betcha you would have done the same!

(Maria Spoken)
Mit kersek, en itt? Azt mondjok, hogy a hires lakem lefogta a ferjemet en meg
Lecsaptam a fejet. De nem igaz, en artatlan
Vagyok. Nem tudom mert mondja
Uncle Sam hogy en tettem. probaltam
A rendorsegen megmayarazni de nem ertettek meg...

(Hannah Spoken)
Yeah, but did you do it?

(Maria Spoken)
UH UH, not guilty!

(Naomi Spoken)
My sister, Veronica and
I had this double act
And my husband, Charlie,
Travelled around with us.
Now, for the last number in our act,
We did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a row
One, two, three, four, five... splits, spread eagles,
Back flips, flip flops, one right after the other.
So this one night before the show we're down at the hotel Cicero, the three of us, boozin', havin' a few laughs and
We ran out of ice, so I go out to get some.
I come back, open the door, and there's Veronica and
Charlie doing Number Seventeen the spread eagle.
Well, I was in such a state of shock,
I completely blacked out. I can't remember a thing.
It wasn't until later,
When I was washing the blood off my hands
I even knew they were dead.

(Naomi)
They had it coming
(All)
They had it coming
(Naomi)
They had it coming
(All)

They had it coming all along

(Naomi)
I didn't do it
(All)
She didn't do it
(Naomi)
But if I done it
(All)
But if she'd done it
(Naomi)
How could you tell me that I was wrong?

(Naomi)
They had it coming

(All)
And they abused it
(Naomi)
How could you tell me that I was wrong?
(All)
It was a murder but not a crime

(Perrine Spoken)
I loved Al Lipschitz
More than I can possibly say.
He was a real artistic guy...
Sensitive... a painter.
But he was always trying
To find himself.
He'd go out every night
Looking for himself
And on the way
He found Ruth,
Gladys,
Rosemary and Irving.
I guess you can say we broke
Up because of artistic differences.
He saw himself as alive
And I saw him dead.

We finish our dance and sit back down on our chairs. When the music ends, the boys stand up and cheer for us. "Are they with you?" Mr. Bronze asks a little annoyed. We girls laugh. Hannah goes to talk with Mr. Bronze while we go up and meet with our boyfriends. "SO how was it?" Elea asks while sipping her water out of her water bottle. Louis wraps his arm around her. "I thought it was perfect. Very scary for men but perfect." The boys agreed with Louis. We had decided to call it quits today because it was getting sort of late and we all needed to shower and rest. After a very long and relaxing shower, I throw on a loose t shirt and some plaid pajama shorts. I walk downstairs and sit on the couch next to Harry. He look me over and smiles. "Nice." I hit his arm and grab some popcorn out of his bowl. Just then I notice the package from earlier today. I stand up and sit down against the front door so I could open it. I manage to take the tape off and get the front part of the box off. I look inside and nearly gag. I run away from the box and to the bathroom. I puke my guts out into the toilet. "WHAT THE HELL?" I hear Harry outside of the bathroom door. I wipe off my face and slowly walk in just as Harry is throwing the dead maggot infested flowers in the garbage can outside. I seen him read the note that was attached to it before he left. I wait for him to come back. He walks back in and securely locks the door. "What did it say?" I ask hatefully. He looks at me. "It said 'I love you dear. This rose is the one of many of its kind. If only you could realize how much you really need me.' It was signed but it was smeared from God knows what." I let a few tears fall down my cheeks. Harry pulls me close to him. "Do you think it's him? Did he come back for me?" Harry stiffened when he remembered Phil. "I don't know. But if its him, I swear Naomi. I swear he won't touch you." I nod into his shoulder. I was too scared to sleep by myself that night so I slept with Harry in his bed. I think he felt better with me being with him too because his anger from before had slowly disappeared. "Harry?" "Yeah Naomi?" I pulled his comforter closer. "I love you." Harry pulled me closer to him and wrapped his arm around my waist. "I love you too Nat." I closed my eyes and tried to dream of something happy.
