20. Chapter 20

The next day was Thursday, my busiest day of the week. I managed to find time to attend Justin's game and I also had to work extra shift at the coffee shop because I missed last week's shift. 

"Hey Justin" I waved at him as I walked into the sports arena. He jogged up to me smiling. "I brought everyone to cheer you on" I say giving him a hug. "Thanks sis, the game starts in 10" He replied rounding up the boys. He was team captain, and he's got all the girls over him. 

I sat on the bleachers and game him a thumbs up. The referee blew the whistle and the game started. The game was quite intense, I couldn't really tell what was happening but the boys were shouting and cheering. I saw Justin catch the ball aimed, and threw it into the the net. I jumped out and cheered along with the crowd. I never knew he got so good at this game, I only saw him playing with my dad when he was younger, even then he couldn't get the ball into the hoop no matter how hard he tried. Soon, the game was at a tie and the players got a 10 minute break. I excitedly walked up to him "I didn't know you got so good at this!" I exclaimed. "There's a lot I'm good at, it's just that you don't know" "well, I definitely know you can't cook, and your not good at singing and you can't beat me at pinball and you can't-" "Okay, that's enough can'ts right now" He cut me off. "Okay, just win the game will ya? I want to get another drink." Just then another girl came up to him and gave him a kiss. I pretended that I didn't see it and walked away.  

The second half of the game wasn't as good, the other team was scoring. "C'mon, c'mon" I say. "Looks like someone is enjoying themselves" teased Logan. I just rolled my eyes and shushed him. I saw Justin try to snatch the ball from another guy, he could probably be two times bigger than him. "No!" I screamed. But it was too late, he pushed Justin away, causing him to fall. He let out a sharp cry, I could see him struggling to stand up, but his leg was bruised. The coach ran up to him, asking him to rest, but Justin refused, knowing it was the last 60 seconds of the game. He needed to enter the ball to win. He walked back into the center of the arena, limping. He waved his arms, signaling his teammates to give him the ball. He successfully caught it, ducked just in time and threw. My heart was beating so fast, I crossed my fingers praying it would enter. 

The buzzer sounded! Everyone got up and cheered as my brother and his teammates celebrated. I watched as the other team walked away in defeat. I ran up to him wanting to give him a victory hug, but I quickly stepped back seeing him drenched in sweat. "Good job Justin!" "Thanks sis, oh by the way, I want you to meet Celine, my girlfriend." He gestured towards a girl. She was pretty, blond with hazel eyes.  I watched her closely, I knew she was gonna be a heart breaker. However, I didn't dare to say anything, my brother seemed so happy now, I didn't  want to have him start worrying again. 

"What time is it?" I heard Taylor ask. "Umm, 4.30" Brandon replied checking his new watch. "SHIT" I shout and dashed for the exit. "Where are you going?" asked Justin. "I'm late for work!" I heard someone say something, but I was already out the door, running down the hallway. "Bridgette!" I knew that voice, Logan. "Wait up!" he called up, "You can't run there, I'll drive you!" "Then hurry up!" I shouted back at him. 

I managed to reach just in time. I ran backstage, and told the musicians about my song selections. I took the mic and walked out. The crowd seemed more than my usual, I started to get a bit nervous, I looked around and saw Logan smiling at me mouthing "I know you can do it" 

The music started, I took a deep breath and started. 

All I knew this morning when I woke
Is I know something now,
know something now
I didn't before
And all I've seen
since 18 hours ago
is green eyes and freckles and your smile in the back of my mind making me feel right
I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you better know
you better know you better now


I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you
know you
know you

Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name,
everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
is everything has changed


And all my walls stood tall,
painted blue
But I'll take them down,
take them down
and open up the door for you


And all I feel in my stomach
is butterflies the beautiful kind
Making up for lost time,
taking flight,
making me feel right

I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you
know you
know you

Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name,
everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
is everything has changed

Come back and tell me why
I'm feeling like I've missed you all this time
And meet me there tonight
And let me know that it's not all in my mind


I just want to know you better know
you better know
you better now
I just want to know you
know you
know you


Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name,
everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday
is everything has changed

(Taylor Swift with Ed in background)
All I know is we said hello
So dust off your highest hopes
All I know is pouring rain
And everything has changed
All I know is a newfound grace
All my days,
I'll know your face
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

The whole time I sang, my eyes were locked in Logan. I felt calm whenever he was here, he makes everything better. After that, I did a few more songs, Demons from imagine dragons, Let her go passenger and Roar by Katy Perry. The crowd was really great, I really enjoyed myself. 

I asked Logan to take me to his house to sleep, my dad was away for a business trip and Justine wouldn't be home until midnight. Just then I got a call from Taylor "Hey Bri, my sister is having her birthday tomorrow"

-"Oh cool, you want me to go?" 

-"I need you to bake a cake for her."

-"Wait, why me? I can't bake"

-"I know, but she loves the Tori loves the chocolate cake your mom bakes."

I didn't want to spoil anyone's wishes, especially on her birthday. "Uh, fine, let me dig out her recipes" 

I hung up the phone "Sorry babe, change of plans. Can you swing by my house? I need to get the recipe for a chocolate cake." 

"Sure, I want to bake too." 

I laughed. I knew this was going to be interesting.
