2. Chapter 1

Micky's POV 

"Can I play the guitar Phillip?" I asked my cousin as he played his guitar. 

"Now Micky." My mom said pullin me back onto her lap. "Just listen to Phillip play isn't he good?"

"But momma." I cried. "I can play too."

"just go play dear." My mom sighed. 

I shot her a look heading outside.

"Hey Micky." Zoey called from across the street. Her brother Payton and his friend Jack stood off to the side throwing a football. I hurry across the street.

"Parents all over Phillip again?"  Zoey asked. 

I nod sitting down next to her watching the boys play. 

"I wish I could show them I was just as good." I sighed. "Just cause he's trying out for American Idol doesn't mean I can't sing."

"You know what?" Payton said jogging over. 


"We should start a band." Payton said.

"Yes." Jack cried. "Micky and I can be guitar and singers. Payton you can be drums."

"I'll be bass." Zoey said. "We need a keyboardist."

"What about a keyboardist?"

We turn to see a girl our age standing on the sidewalk. 

"I'm Kate." She smiled. "I could be your keyboardist." 

I shoot a glance at the others. They nod. 

"That would be great." I smiled. 

From that day our band Fifth Way had been trying to make it in the big league. Now it's our time.
