MSPA (Completed)

Nobody really knew me. I didn't speak that much. But it all changed when I auditioned for the MSPA. I had a dream that had kept me going. A dream to be the best songwriter in the world. It kept me going. Made me stay by my foster parents. It made me survive all the things my foster parents had ever did to me and all the things they were about to do. I was broken... And the people who surrounded me had to fix me...

1. Prologue

Sometimes you need to think big. Think outside th box. But I think this is a little too big. I'm in England, standing infront of the MSPA. The Music School of the performing Arts. With a deep sigh I walk towards the frontdoor. Somebody bumps into me. She cries.

"Don't try to audition. If I don't get in you certainly won't either."

That was very helpful for my confidence that I didn't have at all. In the hall are standing loads of girls and boys. Watching the clock I see that I'm just in time. Why did Patricia needed to be on school today?

"Camile Benson? It's your turn." I hear.

A girl walks past me on my way to the auditorium.

"I'm to ugly, they said." She says.

She has tears in her eyes and on her cheeks. I grab her hands. It kinda shocked me I managed to do that. Usually I'm really shy.

"You're beautiful just the way you are." I told her. I wish somebody would tell me that. All I ever hear is that I'm worthless, that I don't deserve to be here, that i'm a waste of space. Things like that.

Slightly she smiles.

"Thanks and... Good luck. They're not easy on you."

I walk further with a smile on my face, backstage I grab the guitar that stands there and walk on stage. For your audition you have to sing or play the song the judges picked.

"Welcome Camile. You have to play 'Big girls don't cry by Fergie'

I start top play the song and when it is time to sing I do that too.

La da da da

The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter for my own protection baby
To be with myself in center
Clarity, peace, serenity

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightening out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry
Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

The path that I'm walking, I must go alone
I must take the baby steps till I'm full grown, full grown.
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I forsee the dark ahead if I stay

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightening out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry

Like the little school mate in the school yard
We'll play jacks and uno cards
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
'Cause I want to hold yours too
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds

But it's time for me to go home
It's getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself in center
Clarity, peace, serenity
Yeah

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightening out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry
Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

La da da da da da

 

That shocked them I guess since they didn't say anything. Somebody starts to talk.

"Hello Camile. Welcome to the MSPA. My name is Simon Cowell and I will be your mentor for the next 4 years. I never do this, so it is an honor."

He stands up and walks towards me.

"We need more people like you. People who aren't afraid of breaking the rules. But don't break them to often, please." He whispers in my ear. I laugh because of what he says.

"Thank you Mr. Cowell, but I can't promise anything." Now he starts to laugh.

"I like you. Please call me Simon."

That happened when I was 14. I was a shy girl that didn't speak very often. I was broken.. But the broken parts of my heart were and still are getting healed. i have the most amazing friends in the world and I work together with the best singers there can be. 

My name is Camile Benson, a girl with the age of 18. And this is my story.
