6. 6. Izabella's P.O.V

Izabella's P.O.V

My stomach begins rumble which means I'm hungry. I turn to Elizabeth.

"Do you wanna go off campus to get some food?" I say she gives me a small smile "I didn't bring my money with me."

"That's okay I'll pay for you." I say giving a reassuring smile. She nods her head and we quickly make are way to my 2012 blue Chevy Sonic that's parked in the student garage. We quickly buckle are seat belts and I pull out of the garage and head off campus. It's going to be awhile till we get there so I decided to ask her a few questions.

"So how do you like it here so far?" I ask.

"It's different and I don't do well to change really well, but other than that it's okay."

"How is it different?" I give a small chuckle.

"Like your school system for what you guys call high school we call General Secondary School. And we have the option of attending that. The way you guys talk is weird to how you guys use slang." she makes air quotations mark with her hands. "And the people here aren't particularly really nice." she says

I give a small chuckle before I answer. "Well the people thing is true, we live in California. Nobody is nice over here. But the school system is different I didn't know you had that option to go to school or not. And the whole slang thing has been around for years so there's no changing that."

I smile at her and she laughs a little. "That's okay, I'm sure I will adjust." she smiles looking straight ahead.

We pull into the parking lot and I see her eyes get big.

"What is this place?" she says in awe. I chuckle a little "It's Chades it's a good restaurant you don't have that in Hungry?"

"Not that I'm aware of."

We walk into the restaurant and get a booth since it's not that busy because it's Tuesday. We sit there in silence for awhile while we read our menus when a voice calls Elizabeth's last name.

"Hey Petofi!" A strange man walks to the table who I'm assuming is a friend of hers.

"Remember me David? You fell asleep on me, on the plane?" he says I look at Elizabeth with a questioning look and she blushes a deep red I change the subject before David could see her face.

"Hi I'm Izabella, but you can call me Izzy" I say smiling and extending my hand.

"Hi I'm David." he gives my hand a shake and gives me a dazzling smile.

"So what brings you here to Chades?" I ask

"Oh I'm here with my friend Paul." he says. It can't be the same cute guy from my morning class. And sure enough he comes strolling in to our table.

"Hey seating buddy." he says giving me a big grin.

"Hey, oh I'm Izabella but you can call me Izzy if you want." I say giving a shy smile.

"I think I'll call you Izabella. It's such a beautiful name I don't want to shorten it." He says making me blush. I see Elizabeth lock eyes with me and she gives me a big grin.

Our waiter comes to take our orders and we quickly give them to him. Me and Elizabeth both order steak, Paul order some weird Pasta thing, and David order a Hamburger.

Soon one of the waiters walks up to the stage and grabs the microphone. "Okay ladies and gentlemen we will begin Karaoke now any takers? Come on anyone? Looks like I'm gonna pick the lucky person. How about you!" he points right to Elizabeth and I see the pure terror in her eyes as they go wide and this guy can be very convincing so before second guessing myself I decide to step up.

"I'll do it!" I say and stand up and walk up to the stage I have no clue what song I'm going to sing when I come across the perfect song to sing and I tell the dj and it slowly begins to play.
(A/N Dreaming of you by Selena)

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star
That somewhere you are thinking of me too

'Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

Wonder if you ever see me
And I wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes
Would you see what's inside? Would you even care?

I just wanna hold you close
But so far all I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you, yes, I do

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
'Til tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming about you and me

I completely forget that I am at the restaurant and lose myself in song.

Corazon
(I can't stop dreaming of you)
No pied dear de panzer en ti
(I can't stop dreaming of you)
Como te necesito
(I can't stop dreaming of you)
Mi amour, Como te  extraño

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe that you came up to me
And said, "I love you," I love you too

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
'Til tomorrow and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly

I brace myself for the high note and I sing it head on and nail it.

Dreaming with you tonight
'Til tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Than here in my room, dreaming with you endlessly
(I'll be dreamin')

Dreaming of you tonight
(Endlessly)
And I'll be holding you tight
('Till tomorrow)
Dreaming with you tonight!
(Endlessly)
(Endlessly)
(Endlessly)
(Dreaming)

I finish singing and open my eyes and see people crying but I am soon welcomed with applause and cheering I quickly make my back to my seat and happy to see that my food has arrived and Paul scoots to the inside of the table so I could set down and I quickly take a bite of my food and left my head up to see that my whole tables eyes on me.

"What?" I ask.

"I didn't know you could sing like that!" Paul says with a smile forming on his face. "Ehh it was nothing really." I casually shrug. "Please tell me your joking that was literally the best singing I ever heard." David exclaims.

"You could literally hear a pen drop even the cooks stop to hear." Elizabeth says

I began to blush as a new couple goes on and starts sing 'We are Champions' by Queen.

We don't talk much about my singing after that, but we do talk about soccer and I did find out that Paul and David play for our boys soccer team. Paul's is a defender for the boys team and David is a left midfielder for the team and soon enough me and David instantly connected talking about our experiences that we have had and he tells me about how he injured his knee really bad his freshman year of school and he missed both school and club season. I tell him about my ankle injury and how devastated I was that I couldn't play for just one season. Within a few minutes of just talking David and I instantly bonded and became friends.

In the corner of my eye I can see Paul and Elizabeth are bonding over something about defense from what I can hear and use my context clues. I can't help but feel a little jealous. I mean sure I just met Paul but I kind of liked him already, he had this vibe about him that made me just want to talk to him more.

After our long discussion about soccer we quickly finish are meals and make our way back to the cars.

"It was good getting to know you guys I hope we can do this again sometime." I say and give each of them a hug and so does Elizabeth we quickly get into the car so we won't be late to get back into the dorm and I pull off and start driving down the road. It's a silent ride until we get to a stop light and I turn to Elizabeth and ask her the question that has been bothering since the restaurant.

"Elizabeth? Why didn't you want to sing and the restaurant you looked terrified when he picked you?"

"Well when I was younger I was in choir and I audition to have a solo in our big choir concert. And I didn't get it because she said it didn't sound right. And I haven't sang since." she said shrugging it off.

I stare at her and turn my attention back to the light and that's when she starts to laugh and so do I.

 

The light turned green and I started to go and that's when it happened, I see a blinding light from the corner of my eye and I hear a loud crunching sound from behind me and a high pitch scream from Elizabeth and that's when everything goes black.
