For the next 2 days we just kind of hung out at the hotel, going swimming, drawing, watching movies, and getting up every morning and singing in the ball room. Yesterday morning when we went town there, there was already at least 10 people sitting in the seats waiting. It was so cool. Every morning Katy changed the rules. Some mornings I could sing all Katy perry, some mornings I could sing none, only 1, 5 and 5, only taylor swift songs, etc. And each morning I kept getting a little more confident.
We had 9 days left until I was leaving and she was going back on tour and I did not want that day to come. We were chilling in the hot tub on Thursday afternoon just me and Katy when I finally brought up the moment I was dreading.
“I really wish we didn’t have to say goodbye next Saturday.” I sighed and she sighed too.
“Yeah.” I said, holding back my urge to tell her we wouldn’t have to. I know management will say yes. They saw the news cast of us at the ice cream shop and they all instantly loved her. She connects with the fans and the fans love her. Well 99% of them. For some reason I felt the need to film this so I brought up the camera on my phone and pressed record. The lens focused on her and she began talking again.
“I’ll see you again though.” She sighed and pulled her knees to her chest.
“Of course!” I assured her.
“But now everyone at school will try to be my friend.” She told me.
“How is that a bad thing?” I asked. I don’t understand, isn’t being popular good.
“Well it’s just, I have my couple of friends and I’m fine with that. I mean, I have other friends but we don’t hang out or anything. But now that they know I know you and stuff they will all want to be my best friend. I want people to like me for me, not for who I know.” She told me and I understood. But how could anyone not like Brooke.
“You’re the most down to earth, sweet, gorgeous, likeable girl I’ve ever met. I don’t understand how everyone couldn’t love you.” I told her.
“Well nobody really knows me. Only my family and my best friend Abi. People judge you before they know you and they make assumptions. They don’t like me because they think I’m annoying. Everything I say, they always correct me or tell me I’m wrong. Everyone judges you and they refuse to have an open mind. It’s hard to get to know someone when you are basing them on the small insignificant things, like, whether or not they straighten their hair, or wear make-up. They accuse you of things you’re not, like a try hard or a attention whore.” She took a breath. I’m glad I filmed this. It’s amazing, the things that run through her mind like this. “I’m not any of those things. I’m just me.” I stopped recording as she looked up at me. “Why did you record that?”
“I don’t know. Because every film I’ve seen is you being silly or cute or goofing off with me.” I told her. “I’ve never seen you be so deep. It makes you seems 10 years more mature.”
“Alright.” She said. “Now let’s do something fun.”
I didn’t want to sit here anymore after that whole emotional rant. I was never deep or emotional. It made me feel weird, like I was about to cry. I wanted to go do something fun, like raid a store of junk food and eat like crap all night while watching funny videos. I was so glad I had a high metabolism or I would probably weigh 300lbs instead of 110lbs.
“What do you wanna do?” Katy asked me.
“Can we go to the hotels candy shop, I want to pig out” I said and she laughed, nodding and climbing out of the hot tub.
“how about you go rent some movies, and I’ll get the candy. Do you want anything specific?”
“Nah anything is good.” I said and dried off before changing in the change room super quick. My hair was in a cute messy bun so I left it and walked to the hotels movie store.
I walked through the rows of movies and picked out a couple. I chose; Divergent, Inception, The Purge, The Lion King, The heat, and all the toy story’s.
I rented the movies to my hotel card and met Katy at the candy store. She walked out a big cardboard box.
“What’s in there?” I asked and she shook her head.
“You’ll see.” We went back up to the room and I put divergent in. While the trailers were on we crawled into the bed and she opened the card board box. Out poured a giant pile of Halloween candies.
“Whoa! Am I in heaven?” I asked.
“Basically.” She laughed.
I grabbed a pack of skittles and a Reese peanut butter cup and sat back as the movie started. The movie went by fast and I kept eating Candy. Katy stood up to put inception in and grabed a bag of Doritos from the kitchen. She tossed them to me and I tore open the bag, shoveling them into my mouth. Inception started and ended and I kinda got bored through it. I put the purge in. I was told this was a good movie so I was pretty excited to see it. It started off with a lot of violence and I buried myself under the blanket and hoarded a bunch of candy beside me. I scarfed down the chocolate bars. The movie was very violent and I kept wincing and hiding beside Katy. Half way through the movie she clicked it off and looked at me.
“You really don’t like violence do you?” She asked and I shook my head. She got up and put on the heat. I love Melissa McCarthy and I laughed through the whole movie. The sexual parts weren’t awkward with Katy like it would be with my mom. She laughed with me and when the movie ended she put on the Toy Story trilogy.
Half way into Toy story 2 I began to drift off and I pushed all my candy wrappers into the garbage beside the bed and curled up beside Katy. She wrapped her arms around me as I fell asleep.
