No Gravity: NYC

Izzy Leaghton just moved from Florida to New York City with her step father, Jerry, her mom, and her two siblings. After a battle with her lifelong friends, she latches onto a group of kids that live on her street. Their band, No Gravity, does shows once a week on their idle street, and Izzy, an aspiring keyboardist, quickly joins. However, she must face various dramas that are hurting her new friends.


10. Chapter Ten



I was walking around my room, trying to get that dramatic speech out of my head, because drama is stupid and I don't like it. As soon as I get into one of those situations I try to hear the lesson, learn it, and be done. I noticed that outside my window there was a fire escape. I climed out onto it and looked around. It was your typical fourth story view. I could see the float clearly, now filled with kids and teens. They were all by microphones, musical instruments, and there were groups of about three in clever places, stretching and doing dance moves. I could hear them all talking but I didn't understand what they were saying. Then they quieted down and I heard someone start playing drums. Then keyboard. Then guitar and bass. Then a girl was singing Born this Way by Lady Gaga and they were AMAZING! I swear, they sounded better than Lady Gaga herself. I couldn't help but dance up there like a freaking idiot. The girl singing was amazing and she was dancing with the rest of the dancers like they were at a party; she was having a great time! She didn't even seem nervous! I absolutely loved how she didn't make it seem like she was the most important person on the stage, and how she got everybody on  the float dancing and singing along, but not in a stupid childish way, in a professional way.

I was pretty sad when the song ended, but they played more songs. I left the window open so I could still hear, and went quickly up to the fifth floor, where we keep spare furniture, to get my old bright orange plastic desk chair and shoved it out the window onto the fire escape (I knew that was probably illegal, but when was the last time a cop was ever here?) and sat down. There was more than one singer besides the first girl. There was  a boy around Emma's age, another boy about my age, two girls, and then the first girl and the boy that was the same age as me sang together. They'd really drawn a crowd! I saw Mark on his fire escape below me listening, too. I climbed down the ladder onto his fire escape. 

"Hey Izzy!" He said. "Enjoying the concert?"

"They're amazing!"

"I know, right?" He looked closer. "Is that... Emma?"

I looked down to where he was, and there was Emma,dancing on the side of the float with the singer that was her age. She seemed pretty happy. Basically, this guy was muscular, had fluffy dark hair, a great smile, basically the whole package. Let's just hope he's not a jerk, because he looked so cute with Emma! Then I realized she had a boyfriend back in Florida, but he was kinda mean and I figured he could be spared for the other guy.

"That is her!" I said.

"She's dancing it up with that guy!" He banged on his chest like Tarzan. "He better not mess with my little sister!"

"Okay...?" I said, and stared at where he banged his chest, then giggled. I bet he thinks he's got abs. I thought.

Soon enough, they finished. I was sad, but you know what, THAT WAS AWESOME!
