2. Chapter 2

I was always brave until now I know it isn't a mistake though. I can win.I have been waiting in this line forever. I was waiting to audition and I was nervous. Who wouldn't be there is a lot of amazing talent. I saw the guy who interviews people for the YouTube channel thing. He stopped right in front of me.

"Hey, there guys  Brent here, I am about in the middle of the line and we have with us here," He started and I finished.

" Clair."

"Cute, so I detect an accent. Where you from?" He asked.

"Well I am from the lovely city of Council Bluffs in Iowa." I said smiling.

"Well American Girl, Why do you think you have the X Factor?" He asked.

"Well I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I love music and I love preforming. Even if I don't make it, it is the Journey not the destination. I don't have many friends so I wont be missing much." I said. The guy  smiled and went on. I was proud. When I finally got to the stage area my stomach decided to do cartwheels all the way here. It was annoying and horrible. This is it.

"Hey."

"Hi, my name is Clair."

"Cool so what will you be singing for us today?"

"Uh I will be singing a song I wrote called Not to Heaven nor Hell" I said with some confidence

"Ok go on."

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below

Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls

And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke

Keep watching over Durin's sons

 

If this is to end in fire

Then we should all burn together

Watch the flames climb high into the night

 

Calling out father oh

Stand by and we will

Watch the flames burn auburn on

The mountain side

 

And if we should die tonight

Then we should all die together

Raise a glass of wine for the last time

 

Calling out father oh

Prepare as we will

Watch the flames burn auburn on

The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

 

Now I see fire

Inside the mountain

I see fire

Burning the trees

And I see fire

Hollowing souls

I see fire

Blood in the breeze

And I hope that you remember me

 

Oh, should my people fall

Then surely I'll do the same

Confined in mountain halls

We got too close to the flame

 

Calling out father oh

Hold fast and we will

Watch the flames burn auburn on

The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

 

Now I see fire

Inside the mountain

I see fire

Burning the trees

I see fire

Hollowing souls

I see fire

Blood in the breeze

And I hope that you remember me

 

And if the night is burning

I will cover my eyes

For if the dark returns

Then my brothers will die

And as the sky is falling down

It crashed into this lonely town

And with that shadow upon the ground

I hear my people screaming out

 

Now I see fire

Inside the mountains

I see fire

Burning the trees

I see fire

Hollowing souls

I see fire

Blood in the breeze

 

I see fire (oh you know I saw a city burning out) (fire)

And I see fire (feel the heat upon my skin, yeah) (fire)

And I see fire (uh-uh-uh-uh) (fire)

And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side


 

"That was, I don't know what to say it was amazing." One of the judges said.

" You have a lovely voice, and I think you do have what it takes so shall we vote."

"Yes"

"Yes"

"Yes, congrats you are going to The X-Factor."

*Final Show*

I had been waiting to go on, my weeks of waiting for the final show to come.

"Your up." The stage crew said. I took a deep breath and got ready.  

"Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Since the day they got married

He'd been praying for a little baby boy

Someone he could take fishing

Throw the football, be his pride and joy

He could already see him holding that trophy

Taking his team to state

But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket

All those big dreams changed

 

And now, he's wrapped around her finger

She's the center of his whole world

And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect

All-American girl

 

Sixteen short years later

She was falling for the senior football star

Before you knew it he was dropping passes

Skipping practice just to spend more time with her

 

The coach said, "Hey, son, what's your problem

Tell me have you lost your mind?

Daddy said you'll lose your free ride to college.

Boy, you better tell her goodbye."

 

But now, he's wrapped around her finger

She's the center of his whole world

And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect

All-American

 

And when they got married and decided to have one of their own

She said, "Be honest, tell me what you want?"

And he said, "Honey, you ought to know...

 

A sweet, little, beautiful one just-a like you.

I want a beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American..."

 

Now he's wrapped around her finger

She's the center of his whole world

And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect

All-American girl

 

All-American girl"

"We'll be right back right after this commercial to determinate the winner." The announcer said. I got off the stage and if I had anyone to run to I would of but I came here alone, I had no family here or any friends, nobody thought I could do this. They soon had me and Mia back on the stage. The whole conversation flew past me but I heard what I needed.

"Sorry Claire... Mia is the next x-factor..." the crowd went wild. I said congrats and me and Mia gave me a hug and told me how sorry she was that I lost. After that the next week was horrible I got packed and then went home, everyone made fun of me my brother stayed with me and tried to comfort me.
