26. You make me crazier

We went to Cafe Karibo. I've been there ten billion times before with my family. I even went there for my tenth birthday, which was also the first year I didn't celebrate my birthday with my dad by my side. The month before I turned ten, April, was when my dad got arrested and sent to prison.

I sit next to Katie and Cassidy. It's a pretty big party. Even Annabeth came here! She replaced the seat that Logan would have taken. But he left for Cali for a script reading for The Titan's Curse. Everyone from my past came. Jack, Miller, and so much! It's like a big welcome back party!

Just sitting here with all these people bring back so much memories. I talk to Annabeth and Miller about what my life was during my six years in hiding in Cali.

"So you got married at 19 and now have two kids?!" Miller asks in shock. I nod at his answer.

"So where is the father?" That hit me. Zayn sitting across from me froze.

"We...hehe...got divorced..." Their eyes widen.

"What the hell happened?" Annabeth asked in shock.

"Too graphic for children." I whisper.

We finally got our food and dug in. "So Brit, you said that you sing part time at a pizza parlor?" Dad asked.

"For the millionth time, dad, yes." I answered taking a bite of my pasta.

"It's funny because, while making the reservations for tonight, I asked the manager if it was okay if you can sing for us. You know, to welcome you back."

I choke on my pasta.

"Mr.Carter, don't you think that Brit singing at the homecoming game was a good enough welcome back?" Zayn steps in.

"Zayn, we all know that she can sing." Niall states. "But maybe she gained some more experience. Let her sing."

I roll my eyes. "I'm okay with singing in a restaurant, guys." I get up and head over to the microphone that was set up. I take a deep breath and tap the microphone to check to see if it works.

Apparently it does. Because everyone in the restaurant looks straight at me.

"Umm...hi everyone. I'm Britta Carter. And I'm the entertainment for tonight." I look around my surroundings. I find a guitar. I smile like I struck gold and rush to grab it. I get it and walk back to the mic.

"So for my first song is from my favorite singer. My family and friends know who it is, so here I go."

I strum the guitar for a while and begin.

"I'd never gone with the wind

Just let it flow

Let it take me where it wants to go

'Til you open the door

There's so much more

I'd never seen it before

I was trying to fly

But I couldn't find wings

But you came along and you changed everything

You lift my feet off the ground

You spin me around

You make me crazier, crazier

Feels like I'm falling and I am lost in your eyes

You make me crazier, crazier, crazier

I've watched from a distance as you made life your own

Every sky was your own kind of blue

And I wanted to know how that would feel

And you made it so real

You showed me something that I couldn't see

You opened my eyes

And you made me believe

You lift my feet off the ground

You spin me around

You make me crazier, crazier

Feels like I'm falling and I am lost in your eyes

You make me crazier, crazier, crazier

Baby you showed me what living is for

I don't wanna hide anymore

Oh oh

You lift my feet off the ground

You spin me around

You make me crazier, crazier

Feels like I'm fallin' and I am lost in your eyes

You make me crazier, crazier, crazier

Crazier, crazier."

I get a round of applause and a whoop from someone in my party-that was Harry.

I just stand there and laugh my ass off.

Not literally.
