I am having so much fun writing this so far. I have a few more chapters that are rough drafts and i will try to get on and add everyday if i can. This carrot thing is making me laugh though. Are people really this crazy about carrots or am i just creating a mentally unstable character.... so, message me and stuff, i want to hear what you guys think. BYE MY CARROT LOVERS!!!
"This is Syco Records, Terri speaking, how may i help you?" A bubbly voice on the other end of the line rushes out in a single breath.
"Hello, i am calling because Simon Cowell wrote for me to call on the back of a very vuage(Don't know if i spelled that right <o0>) buisness card. I mean, it honestly said his name, his number, and those two words. As i said, super vuage. Anyways, could you please tell him that i'm calling? Unless he's busy now, becasue i can wait, it's no bother, becasue i don't want to annoy him with my timing or whatever. You know what, forget i called. What's a good time to call back?" I said it even faster than the lady on the other end said her opening line.
The lady on the other end laughs and asks how i calm my nerves, to which i reply, by eatig a lovely little carrot. She giggles and shushes me. "You are perfectly alright, dear. Simon has been waiting to hear from you and i hope you are excited, this is a big deal for everyone. Just let me buzz your call through. Don't worry, Simon is really a nice guy, just assertive and sometimes bossy. Shhh, don't tell him i said that."
"Don't worry! I will keep your secret safe on one condition..." I pause and she laugs, signaling for me to go on. "You have to love... CARROTS!" I yell into the phone loudly. My crazy personality is back, now that she is being so friendly to me.
"Ohhh, i love carrots. One of the boys in a band of Simon's asks me that question everytime he calls Simon. You remind me of him." She answers without a pause and i let out a squeal.
"Yay! Another carrot lover! Okay, i won't tell Simon, i promise."
"Oh, yeah! Okay, i am going to buzz you through now...wait, what's your name, dear?" She seems a little sad to be ending the conversation and i am kinda sad to, because it's hard to come across a serious carrot lover these days.
"Sierra Caverly. And, if i ever get to Syco, you will have to introduce me to this other carrot lover from that band."
"Of course! My name is Betsy, by the way, hopefully i will see you in here soon! Good luck with your music, Bye!" The line cuts her off as a male voice replaces her.
"Sierra! It's nice to finally talk to you. I am so excited to present this opportunity to you, so congratulations on winning the contest that Syco Records released." The voice sounds warm over the phone, so different than the Simon Cowell that i have seen crush people's dreams on tv.
"Wow, you sound so nice! I wasn't expecting it, honestly." I clamp a hand over my mouth as i realize what i said... damn, i should have known my crazziness would screw things up! i grab a carrot from the table in front of me and take a giant much to calm my nerves and keep my mouth full so i don't say anything else embarassing.
He lets out a loud laugh and replies easily, "I have a role to play on tv. And, is that a carrot you are eating?"
I gasp loudly, quickly swallowing the delicious thing. "How did you know???" I whisper, my eyes darting around the kitchen.
"I have a boy in one of my bands and he's always eating carrots when he is calling me, so i have come to know the sound of a carrot being munched on. So, anyways, we want to sign you into an all girls band with the three others who also won, alright?" Without waiting for a reply, he goes on. "We are having a meeting here at Syco Records tomorrow, to discuss everything. Tomorrow morning, seven a.m., there is a flight leaving Mullingar and heading to Las Angeles. I need you and your father on that plane so we can start making things happen. you have to pack enough for two weeks. It is a little chilly here, as it is December and you should pack warm. You will be working with another band that is under me to help show you girls the ropes and keeping you guys together until you are ready to work together as a fully functioning all-girls band. Got it?"
I give a quick nod, fogetting that he can't see me. I'm trying to remember everything. All i can really remember is cold weather, seven a.m. flight tomorrow to LA with dad, another band, metting tomorrow afternoon.
He must have known that i nodded becasue he says, "Good. I am excited we will be having some fresh music out soon."
"Thank-you so much Sir." i say shyly, my confidence still not back yet.
"Just call me uncle Si, we will be working together closely and i am hoping to get past the formalities quickly." I laugh to him and explain that my nickname is also Si. We laugh for a few moments and then he hangs up after telling me i need to get packing.
I stare at the phone for a long moment before letting out a loud whoop of excitement and running quickly up the stairs, almost forgetting my carrots before i spin around and grab them. Then i run to tell my Dad the awesome news.
