18. Chapter 18||
See my shadow dance in the dark
There's no illusion I know you're gone
We'll waste my wishes on shooting stars
Let me stay in my mirage
Lucas and I face Simon, waiting for a response. He looks up from his desk as a smile forms on his lips. "I love it. I genuinely love it."
"Really?" I say in shock.
"Yes, I'm being serious Meghan. I do not kid."
"So what is this leading up to then?" I bite the inside of my lip waiting.
"I'll have a talk with Jesse later on. If he says yes, I'm willing to have you as a singer along with Lucas. I'd love to have you two in my business."
"Thank you so much Simon!" I hug him over the desk. He jumps at my actions, but pats my back.
"Thank you Simon. This means a lot to me too." Lucas shakes hands with him.
"I'll see you two soon then." He stands up walking towards the door. He opens it as we start to walk out.
"Thank you again Simon." He nods his head before closing the door.
I jump up and down squealing. Lucas chuckles at my excitement. I link arms with him walking down the hall.
This was it. All Jesse had to do was give me up from the contract so that I could join Syco Entertainment. No more Jesse means no more using me like a doll. I loved the thought of that and having Lucas as a partner again.
"This is amazing!" I throw my hands in the air looking up.
"I know! We could get into the music business!"
"But this depends all on Jesse now. If he says no, we can't pursue the music career. I mean, you could but I'll have to stay with Jesse till my contract ends." I sigh.
"Even if he says no, I'm not doing this without you. I would of never had this opportunity because of you. Thank you Meghan." He pulls me into a hug. I giggle hugging him back. "Now should we tell Niall?" He looks down at me.
"Uh, sure." I nod.
"We should go out and celebrate, even if it's not official yet. I'm just so excited!"
"Alright. I guess a little celebration wouldn't hurt." I roll my eyes smiling. "I'll invite all the guys."
"Great! Let's go to our favorite restaurant for dinner tonight, yeah?"
"Sounds good to me!"
"Okay, well, I gotta meet up with some friends of mine. I'll meet you and the boys at the restaurant?" I nod in response. "See you later!" He jogs off to his car. I wave to him as he drives out of the parking lot.
Lucas is so excited about this. I'm happy for the both of us. He's is going to pursue his dream, while I had my friend back.
I couldn't ask for anything else.
After putting on my clothes I run over to the bathroom. "I'm gonna be late!" I shout, reminding myself. I quickly straighten my hair out, then putting on some makeup. I slip on my high tops hopping over to the door. I grab my bag throwing it over my shoulder. "Oh c'mon stupid shoe!" I yell. I finally get it on opening the door. I run into someone walking back inside. I look up to see Jesse staring me down.
"Uh, hi Je-" I fall to the ground feeling a sharp pain on my cheek. I place my hand over my cheek looking up at him. "What was that for?!" I growl at him.
"I know what you were doing! You and your little friend going behind my back to write your own music! You were getting Simon to get you off my hands!" He grabs the collar of my shirt pulling me up to him.
"Yes! I did do it! I did it for my own good!"
"What do you know? All you do is just stand there and look all pretty! I do all the damn work!"
"I never asked you to do my work! I never even asked for this celebrity life! You just got me by the arm and labeled me as a singer, actress and model! I didn't ask for that, did I? No! I just wanted to be a Youtuber, not someone different from the real me!" I feel his hand slap me again making me whimper.
"I still own you, Burry! You're not going anywhere for the next ten years!" He spits in my face. I wipe his spit off my face looking down. Hot tears spill down my face as he continues to yell at me.
"Hey! Get off her!"
"Niall?" I whisper to myself.
