fallen angel

Smile is 17 years old and lives with her father. Her mother died of cancer a few years ago, that's when it started ... her father lost his job and started drinking. Now, he was always drunk. he began abusing her when she was 8, it was when her mother was admitted to hospital. Smile did not want anyone to know about it. what would they think of her? that she was worthless? they would beat her too? as if it matters. she's already been bullied at school. she used to be strong and think just smile! one night she takes courage to escape...


30. mockingbird

this week I'll sing Mockingbird. I'm a little tense. it's about a father who loves his children but I have not had it for so long time.

"Are you okay?" Simon asked. I nodded.

"Well, I thought that if you're standing there in the middle of the stage and when you get to refrengen so will the dancers." I nodded. I moved across the stage as he said I would. I rapped on the text and tried to remember it.

"We're done for today! see you tomorrow on the stage," said Simon. I stepped off the stage and took a water bottle.

"I did not know you could rap," said a voice behind me. it was Jane.

"I can" I laughed.

"Who's there as a guest singing?" I asked.

"It's Demi lovato" she said. I took my bag and stood in array me up. she can not! fuck!

"I can make sure she stays away," said Jane, I nodded.

"Thanks" I said. as soon as I arrived at the house, I went into my room and fell asleep.



"Smile! You have to get ready! You go on stage in 5 minutes!" I heard someone shout. I walked towards the stage my intro went on. I stood on the stage. my beat came on and all lights lit on me.

I know sometimes things may not always make sense to you right now
But hey, what daddy always tell you?
Straighten up little soldier
Stiffen up that upper lip
What you crying about?
You got me...

Hailie I know you miss your mom and I know you miss your dad
When I'm gone, but I'm trying to give you the life that I never had
I can see you're sad, even when you smile, even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry
Cuz you're scared, I ain't there?
Daddy's with you in your prayers
No more crying, wipe them tears
Daddy's here, no more nightmares
We gonna pull together through it, we gonna do it
Lainnie uncle's crazy, aint he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
We're all we got in this world
When it spins, when it swirls
When it whirls, when it twirls
Two little beautiful girls
Lookin' puzzled, in a daze
I know it's confusing you
Daddy's always on the move, mamma's always on the news
I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
The harder that I try to do that, the more it backfires on me
All the things growing up as daddy that he had to see
Daddy don't want you to see but you see just as much as he did
We did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me
But things have got so bad between us
I don't see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be when we was teenagers
But then of course everything always happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it's just something we have no control over
and that's what destiny is,
But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day we'll wake up and this will all just be a dream

Now hush little baby, don't you cry
Everything's gonna be alright
Stiffen that upperlip up little lady, i told ya
Daddy's here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why
We feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby,
But i promise momma's gon' be alright

It's funny
I remember back when you and daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
And stuck 'em under the tree and said some of 'em were from me
Cuz daddy couldn't buy 'em
I'll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying
Cuz daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a job
But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broken into and robbed
Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Trying to start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
Almost had a thousand dollars till someone broke in and stole it
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma's heart
And it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguin' a lot so momma moved back
Onto Chalmers in a flat one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
And that's when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. Dre
And flew you and momma out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn't like it
And you and Lainnie were to young to understand it
Papa was a rollin' stone, momma developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
I'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Cuz all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I'm sittin in this empty house, just reminiscing
Lookin' at your baby pictures, it just triks me out
To see how much you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters now
Wow, I guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
Lainnie I'm talkin' to you too, daddy's still here
I like the sound of that, yeah,
It's got a ring to it don't it?
Shh, momma's only gone for the moment

Now hush little baby, don't you cry
Everything's gonna be alright
Stiffen that upperlip up little lady, i told ya
Daddy's here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why
We feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby,
But i promise momma's gon' be alright

And if you ask me too
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
I'mma give you the world
I'mma buy a diamond ring for you
I'mma sing for you
I'll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shine
I'mma break that birdies neck
I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
and make him eat every carat
don't fuck with dad "




my tears flowed this. the audience clapped and cheered. Judges said only good things. I walked off the stage and into my dressing room.

"She does not want you to go in there" I heard Jane say outside.

"But I need to talk to her!" I heard Demi say. a second later the door burst up.

"I tried," said Jane.

"It's okay jane, you be up on stage soon join you," I said.

"Smile, you must listen to me." said demi.

"I already know what happened, I do not want to hear it again." said I coldly.

"But you did not see everything!" she said.

"You get 5 minutes on you"

"I helped Niall to make a surprise for you!, he said I did not tell anyone!, he was so cute! I wished he was with me so I took the first chance to kiss him . just to be sure of my feelings! he kissed back, but he was just caught in the moment! you must believe me, the first thing he did when he saw you were running after you., he looked not even on me before he went! there was just a misunderstanding! "I looked deep into her eyes. she was not lying but I was brought still pissed.

"I believe you," I said with a sigh.

"Thank you soo much!" she said and hugged me.

"I'm still mad at Niall" I said. Demi sighed.
"was not it, it was my fault." she said
"and your performance was fantastic!" she said and left. I smiled to myself.
