7. Meeting Simon
Its morning and I still can't believe I'm that good of a signer. Daddy told me he would talk to Simon
First thing in the morning about doing the duet with him and he's talking to him now. I could hear muffled words coming from the kitchen but couldn't make out what was being said. After 20 minutes of wonder Dad came out of the kitchen of the tour bus.
"Simon said yes and he wants to meet my beautiful daughter later today to hear you sing."
Oh. My. God. I'll have to sing in front of THE Simon Cowell. The man I've watched on American Idol for years. The man who mentored my family for their whole singing career. You could say I looked up to him. I really hope he likes my singing as much as everyone else. Thinking about it now, this whole singing thing is getting important to me. Just thinking about what could go wrong was making me shake. What if he hated me? What if he chose some other girl to do the song over me?
"Daddy I'm nervous." He came over to the couch and put an arm around me. He kissed the top of my head as I snuggled into his chest.
"Sweetie, there's nothing to be nervous about. You're an amazing singer like I already told you. Simon will love you. I promise."
"Now go get ready."
"Are we all ready to go?" Uncle Ni Ni asked.
"Yea." I answered back. My words shaky, showing how nervous I was.
"You look nice today Darcy." Uncle Li said complementing my outfit.
I was wearing a black v-neck crop top with a white tank top underneath with shorts.Lou Teasedale came over to our bus and straighten my hair for me. They've been riding in another bus behind us along with Josh,Jon, Sandy, Dan and Paul. The driver drove us to a big glass building. It was huge. We got out of the bus and a woman was waiting for us at the door.
"Hi Darcy I'm Megan. I work for Simon and I'll be working with you when you're recording and helping with the photo shoots. Come with me and I'll take you all up to Simon's office."
The name reminded me of Meg and Sky. I missed them so much. I don't even remember Megan leaving two days ago and I haven't talked to her since. I really should call or something. I haven't talked to my friend Lucian since the day I left. I really missed him. Oh and by the way I'm deeply in love with him. He's perfect and he's always been there for me. He knows I love him and he's always told me he loves me just as a friend but before I left to find my family he was very flirtatious. I love him with all my heart and maybe things will finally spark. With all of my thinking I didn't realize we were now getting off the elevator and walking down to Simon's office.
Megan opened the door and Simon was sitting at his desk writing something down. He looked up and smiled at me. I was kind of intimidated by him because of watching him on American Idol. He would always put the contestants down but with all honesty just in a harsh way. I don't want that to happen to me.
"Hello Darcy, I'm Simon. I've heard from your father you're a great singer."
"We'll I don't know about great, I'd say decent singer."
"I'll be the judge of that, come with me to the recording room. Well record some just with you and then we'll record some with you and the boys. Is that alright Darcy?"
"Yeah just fine."
We went into the recording studio and I went in and they asked me to sing 'Last First Kiss'. Then The rest of the boys came in and we sang ' I Would'.
I finished the song and took a deep breathe before I looked at Simon's face. It was unreadable. His face was completely blank.
"So, what do you think? Can she sing?" Uncle Lou asked.
Simon was silent for a minute before speaking.
"Darcy, I think you're even better than your father. Looks like you've inherited the gift. We've found our girl for the song boys."
Yes! I'll be singing with my family. Just think ill be in interviews, having hundreds of people screaming for me to sing. I hope.
