I could feel Scooter's eyes staring at me while I dance. I didn't dare mess up, I couldn't give him anymore reasons to let me go. Hey love, what you waiting for? What's Hatnin' by Justin Bieber played. I've been waiting for a girl like you for a long, long, long, long time now, Hey love, hey love, hey love, Don't throw it away, don't throw it away, don't, don't throw it away. The choreographer paused the song, "Are you okay Claire?" He asked, everyone turned around. Claire was hunched over against the wall. I ran over to her, "What's wrong?" "My stomach hurts really bad and I-I," Claire threw up all over the wall... and me. "I'm so sorry," She said wiping her mouth with the bottom of her shirt. Poor girl, she was a mess. "Why don't you and Claire go back to the room and get cleaned up," Scooter said. I took Claire by the hand that didn't have vomit on it and led her out of the room, everybody stared. "I'm really sorry," Claire said once we got back to the room. "No worries, I wanted to leave anyway," I said taking off my shirt. "Why, your such amazing dancer." Is that why Scooter gave me a choice? "Thanks, but its hard to dance when Scooter is staring at you like your some kind of-" I stopped, I was thinking out loud now. "Like what?" Claire said interested. "Never mind," I said. I grabbed my phone, 1 Message from Justin.
Justin: You never text me back, but I at least know your reading them, let me take you out tonight, how about the Sushi House @ 9? Can you please just say yes or no. :)
I really hated sushi, but I would love to spend time with Justin.
Me: Yes, and I'm sorry :)
I ran over to my bag, I had absolutely nothing to wear for a date. "Hey Claire, how would you like to go to the mall?" I asked. She smiled, "Yes, I'm starving, mall food sounds good." I laughed, "Okay, just let me take a shower first."
Claire and I took a cab to the Lenox Square mall. It was huge, nothing compared to the malls in Kansas. There were so many stores, that I thought only existed on t.v. We went into The Black And White store but all the clothes looked too expensive for my $150 dollar budget. I ended up at Forever 21, "Hey how about this," Claire said pulling out black and white stripped leggings that I wouldn't wear in a million years. I shook my head, then pulled out a yellow and brown strapless sun dress and showed it to Claire. "No, think sexy." Thinking sexy wasn't exactly something I was good at if you couldn't tell. "I'll try." I said skimming through the outfits on the 'clearance' rack. "Look," Claire said holding up a green mini dress that was off the shoulder. "Green isn't exactly sexy if you ask me," I said. Claire walked up to me and pressed the dress against my body, "Sexy isn't a color my doll, and if you don't buy it I will." It's all yours. I took the dress and hung it over my arm. "Anything else," I said loosing hope. Claire rubbed her belly, "I will be back, I'm starving, you want anything from McDonalds?" She asked, I shook my head and she ran off. I went back to the 'clearance' rack and spotted a really cute orange dress. >
I went to the dressing room to try it on. It wasn't really my style, but it actually looked really good on me. I took the dress to the cashier, "Good choice, this is super cute," The girl said she was wearing something similar to the dress I just bought. I bumped into Claire on the way out, she had a large coke in one hand, and was trying to tackle a burger with the other. "I got something I think you'll like."
