I scrolled through my twitter reading and rereading all the hate. Some of the things weren’t even relevant at all.
‘She’s just using those girls for fame’
‘I heard her parents abandoned her.’
Like.. What? It still made me up set though, I really hate being called fat.
“Brooke..” I heard Katy say from the door way and I looked up, trying to hold in my tears. She came over and sat beside me and took my phone out of my hands and setting it beside me. She wrapped her arms around me and I leaned into her.
“Did I do something wrong?” I asked.
“No. People just get easily jealous and I just think they all want to be you. None of those comments are true. I’ve learned that you need to block out the hate and focus on the positives.” She picked up her phone and went onto twitter. The showed me the tweet she sent with all the positives underneath. It made me feel a little better.
“I’m alright now, let’s go shopping.” I said standing up and sliding my phone into my pocket. I went to to the dresser, looking for my wallet.
“Don’t worry about your wallet, trust me I think I have enough money in here for everyone.” She said.
“I don’t want you to spend your money on me.” I said.
“Don’t worry, it’s fine.” She said pulling me out of the room before I could protest. My mom tossed me a pair of her Gucci sunglasses to wear. I guess if the fans recognized me now too, they would swarm Katy. We hailed a cab to take us to the mall.
Katy handed the man 10$ and we hopped out running into the mall to escape the windy chill. We walked over to the directory and Katy turned it on. “What store do you want to go to first?” She asked.
“Forever 21?” I asked. She nodded excitedly and typed it in the directory. We followed the way it told us to Forever 21 and we shopped for a bit. I found a really cute skirt that I wanted. It was a semi mini skirt but not too short, it was black and soft. It was the only thing I saw that I wanted and it was on sale for 12$, Katy bought it for me along with an outfit for her.
“Believe it or not,” She said. “I don’t have a lot of clothes; I mostly just have the custom made costumes for concerts and a bunch of party dresses.” I nodded; I noticed her closet was mostly filled with dresses.
We decided to go to Ardene’s next because I wanted a new necklace and some scarves. I found two necklaces, one had a K on it and one had a B. We decided to get those. I also found some adorable infinity scarves.
I bought 3 infinity scarves and those necklaces and we moved on to banana republic next.
“Let’s split up and find an outfit for each other.” Katy suggested and I agreed before going the opposite way of her. The store had so many clothes it was hard to choose. I wanted something simple for her but not slobby.
I found the perfect outfit and I hid it behind my back as Katy came around the corner.
“I found your outfit, wanna see it?” She asked and I nodded, she held up the outfit and it was so cute!
I showed her the one I found for her and she absolutely adored it, we paid for them and decided to take a break. We wandered to the food court and I ordered from A&W, I ordered a chicken burger and she ordered a Poutine from NYF.A couple of fans recognized Katy and wanted some autographs. They were all nice to me and said hi. They made a little bit of conversation before going back to their table. The food was delicious and after we went to a few more shops, we ended up spending 600$ before we wanted to go back to the hotel. We walked out of the mall and hailed a cab quickly before someone recognized us and decided to mob us.
We climbed in and gave the driver the address to our hotel and he drove us quickly there. When he parked he helped us grab our shopping bags out of the trunk and we thanked him before paying him.
“Hey, aren’t you Katy Perry?” He asked.
“oh, my niece is such a huge fan of yours! She has all your music downloaded on her iPod.” The taxi driver said smiling. “She just turned 11 today.”
“Well, I could wish her a happy birthday if you would like?” Katy smiled and he nodded happily, dialing a number into his phone.
“Hi sis, Can you put madi on the phone, I have someone here who would like to wish her a very happy birthday.” He spoke into the voice, “Thanks.” He handed the phone to Katy.
“Hi madi, My name is Katy Perry, I just wanted to wish you a very happy birthday.”
I heard an excited scream on the other side of the line. Katy laughed and said bye before handing the phone back to the taxi driver.
“Have a good day girls.” He waved before driving off.
“That was nice of you.” I said to her and she shrugged.
“I love my fans, I love making them happy.” She said and I nodded. I admire Katy, she is such a sweet person. “Come on; let’s go put your clothes away.” We took the elevator up and went into my room, packing my clothes away.
“Hey Brooke come see this!” I walked over to the couch where Cole and my mom were watching the news.
The headline was: Happy Birthday to Katy Perry and Brooke Manson, Ice cream sundae fight at Creamy delight.
A video came up on the screen of me attacking Katy with the caramel sauce and then the other girls joining in. Then the picture that everyone took of us came up on the screen. We all laughed at how ridiculous we looked.
“Looks like you girls had fun last night.” My mom said and we both nodded. The announcer came back on and bean talking.
“What the world wants to know is.. Who is Brooke Manson and how do these girls know her.”
The news cast ended and I stood up.
“I’m going to put my stuff away, get your swim suit on, we are going to the pool. You too Cole. You all can come if you’d like.” Katy said.
“Well I’d love to but I have a spa appointment.” My mom said. I ran into my bedroom to find one of my bikinis. I picked out my black and white one.
It was my favorite swimsuit. I grabbed a towel and walked into the living room, Cole was waiting by the door and we walked to the elevator. My phone dinged and I looked down to see I had a text from Katy.
Meet me at the pool, I’ll be right down. Xx.
I showed Cole the text and we went to the main floor and ran to the pool. I set my towel down on the chair and Katy opened the door to the pool. She was wearing a cute zebra print bikini.
