6. What Happens Before a Show

I shot back from remembering my fatal expirence. That part of my life was just unbearable, I hate going back and remembering it.

I continued walking, and listening to my music  as I looked at my watch. It read, 4:13. I still have 2 hours until I need to go back and start getting ready for the show. I decided to swing by the Star Bucks for a little while and grab a iced coffee.

I spent a good hour or so there, just having Me Time. Listening to music, thinking about the upcoming show. I also thought about my whole life in general. Yea, I know its stupid, but sometimes you just have to take a minute and reflect back on all that you have done and accomplished so far in your lifetime.

It was now 5:46, and I decided to head back to my room and get ready. All I had to do was change into my outfit, I would get my make-up and hair done proffesionally backstage.

I got back to my room, and threw my suitcase open. I wanted to be myself, but also look sophisticated. I chose one of my dresses. Its black on top, to my waist, then from there is light blue. The bottom flows when i walk, the front higher than the back. I matched it with a pair of cute, black high heels. I headed off the get my hair and make-up done, ipod and beats still in hand.

When I arrived, a lot of the contests had already arrived, getting prepped for the show. I found my seat, and my stylist came over to help. I told her how I wanted my hair, but trusted her with anyway for my make-up. She quickly styled me long blonde hair into beautiful bouncy curls, and braides pinned back over my forehead. Then she moved to my make-up, and I was able to put my headphones on and listen to my music.

I decided to sing Impossible by Shontelle. Yes, its a challenging song, but it sounds amazing with my voice, not to brag or anything. I had the song on constant replay, trying to focus on the lyrics, even though I already had them memorized. Casey, my stylist, finished brushing on my eyeshadow, and held a mirror up so I could see my reflection. I looked stunning. Even I was speechless. She did my make-up in such a unique way, that it works. My cheeks are rosy, and my eyes have a shadow effect going on. It was lighter on the eye lid, and darker going up, giving it a smokey effect. And my lips were a cute shade of pink, with a little flare of sass. I look like a superstar already.

I gave Casey a big hug, and thanked her for helping me look amazing for my first live show. Then I just walked around, calming my nerves and killing time before the show.

I have my beats on, going over and over the lyrics with my eyes closed, focusing. All I could do was focus on the lyrics. I had to nail this. I need to show the judges I can do this. I was so focused I had no idea I was walking. I seem to wander when Im not paying attention to anything but one thing, so i had no idea.

Just as I was starting to feel confident and all my nerves were being put aside, I opened my eyes, and saw a figure right in front of me. Before i could react, I bumped into it (not knowing what it was) tripped on my heels, and was on the floor in an instant. I tryed to stand up, but my ankle wouldnt allow me. I fluttered my eyes open, and everything was fuzzy. All I saw was a tall, dark figure kneeling in front of me. I couldnt do anything but hold me ankle and head. Im such a clutz! I thought oto myself. I couldnt find anywords.

Then I heard, "Are you okay? Need a hand, love?" In a thick irish accent.
