The next evening, we were free. So Luke and I decided to practice. Actually, I wasn't sure about the Jam. I'm the shy type of girl... "Hey, what's up?" asked Luke. "Nothing." I said far too quickly. "Alyss, c'mon. What's the matter?" "I... I'm just not sure about the Jam friday. I mean, I know you'll do great, but I'm just not good enough..." But Luke interrupted me. "Are you kidding me? Your voice is amazing! Just like you. Alyss, look at me." He took my hand and looked in my eyes. "You are the most beautiful girl I've ever met. Plus you can sing incredibly good. Besides, if anyone even thinks of laughing with you, I'll knock him out." He kissed me on the forehead, that surprised me. "I... I'm sorry... I shouldn't have done that..." he mumbled. "It's okay." Our lips came closer to eachother. THen, Yolandi came in. "Hey, guys! How is it going?" We quickly acted like nothing happened; yet we were both blushing. "Uhm... Quite good." said Luke shy. "Let me hear something." ordered Yolandi. She didn't notice anything. I did what she asked and started to sing. I felt better during singing; less insecure. Yolandi gave us a fiew advices and asked if we wanted to take part of the Jam. "Uhm..." I started but Luke interrupted me again. "Yeah, sure." After Yolandi left, I hit him on his arm. "What?" he asked. "I didn't say I was going to take part of the Jam!" "No, but I did. Now, c'mon. Let's practice."
I didn't know why I kissed her forehead. Actually, I do know. To calm her down. Yet, I shouldn't have done that. But then, we almost kissed; Almost... Yet, Alyss didn't pull back. We probably would have kissed if Yolandi didn't came in. I don't know if Yolandi noticed it. I hope she didn't... Anyway, the duet was already quiet good. We practiced until 11.00pm. Time passes by when you're having fun. When I entered the hut, the boys were still awake. "How was it?" asked Calum. "Quiet good. We're going to take part of the Jam." I said. "Oh really? I was actually thinking we should do something together." said Michael disappointed. "I'm sorry, man. I didn't think of that possibility." "Dude, it's okay. Just make sure you get that girl." answered Michael. "That won't be a problem." I had put out my clothes and stood there in nothing but my boxer shorts so I went to bed like Michael, Calum and Ashtong. "You kissed her?" asked Ashton surprised. "No, we were about to kiss eachother but then Yolandi came in." "So at least you know Alyss likes you too." said Ashton smiling; I nodded. "I told you so." said Michael laughing. "Shut up."
The next mourning, I entered the Big Hall. Laura and Lily were sittng a table, but I didn't find Emmely. I told them yesterday I almost kissed Luke. "Hey, guys. Where is Emmely?" I said - in dutch cuz we're all from Belgium. "No idea. SHe left the hut before we woke up. Even her stuff was gone." answered Laura. Hmm, that was strange. Then, Ashley and 'her crew' came in. Ashley is the bitch of the camp. Everyone turned to her when she and her crew came in. I was surprised she came to me. Everybody was silence. They didn't want to miss anything. Where was Luke. I wish he was here to protect me. "Well well well. Look at you. You're such a loser. What does Luke see in you? Actually, that doesn't matter. He is mine. He always was and he always will be. Don't you dare talk to him. If you do, then I'll find you..." "How do you..." And then, Emmely appeared from the middle of the crew. I barely recognised her. Her hair was different, her clothes; And she wore lots of make up. "No, you didn't..." I said angrily. Why did she tell that bith I almost kissed Luke? "Sorry, I didn't hear you?" Emmely said, although she heard bloody well what I said. "Why?" "Because you're a loser ofcourse. Wait, what was your name again?" Emmely said. I can't believe it! She turned into a bitch! "Hey, loser! She asked you something." Said Ashley and she slapped me in my face. "HOW DARE YOU SLAP MY GIRL HOW DARE YOU CALL MY GIRL A LOSER?" Yelled Luke, everybody turned to him. I couldn't hold my tears anymore and ran away.
Luckily, Luke came in. "Your girl? What are you talking about, Lukey? I'm your girl. Don't you remember?" said Ashley desperate. What was going on? "You're wrong, Ashlye. You're not my girl anymore and you never will be again. Alyss is my gil now. Get over it." Said Luke and he left.
