I picked up my phone and called my dad for the third time today hoping he would actually answer. It was 10:30 at night and he still hasn't called back.
"Hey baby doll!" he answered excitedly.
"Hi, dad." I grumbled.
"Oh, I don't know. Maybe I am a little pissed cause you didn't call me back." I snapped.
There was a pause on the other end of the line.
"You there?" I asked.
"Yeah, I'm here hun. I'm sorry I didn't call back. Today has been a little hectic for me-"
"I- Well- I mean it's hard to explain since you don't know all about the singing business, but basically we had a show cancel due to stuff I don't even know and that means I will be home a week late and I have been arguing with management all day and they won't budge."
"I'm sorry funny... This has never happened.... Did you need to tell me something?"
"Oh, yeah, I did. Well, the Xfactor is gonna be in town tomorrow and the next day for auditions and I was gonna go tomorrow-"
"Yeah, I'm going, dad."
"Because it is something that I wanna do."
"If you wanna be a singer, you just have to ask me? I can do all this stuff for you easily hun."
"I know you can daddy, but this is something that I really wanna do. And you know if I actually get in, you and uncle Andy can come and watch me."
He sighed, "What kind of music are you going to sing?"
"I listen to a variety of music. Country, pop, classical, screamo, and a ton of other kind."
"So, this is something that you really wanna do? Because you could always wait few years-"
"Daddy, I'm 18 years old. I wanna do this now. I don't wanna wait till I'm like 20 something years old to start a career..."
"No, I understand. Alright, if this is something you really wanna do then you know me and the family are all going to support you-"
"When you say family, do you mean Uncle Andy and his wife Aunt Victoria and their three kids?"
"And his band and my band. We are all gonna be there for you, beautiful."
I smiled, "Okay, daddy! I love you so much!"
He chuckled, "I love you too baby girl."
"Okay daddy, I'll talk to you sometime tomorrow or tomorrow night?"
"Okay, bye dad."
