"Amanda I'm home" I hear from downstairs. All afternoon since I've been home I've been looking up more on the X factor. I watched a few episodes when I lived in the US, but was never a huge fan.
I walk down the stairs to the kitchen was, "so what's for dinner?"
"I picked up food from some restaurant called Nandos. Never heard of it so I figured try it." He says while pulling a Styrofoam container out of the bag.
"Alrighty then," I grab out two plates and cups and fill up the cups with homemade pomegranate lemonade. One of the good things that turned out if he accident was my dad learned how to use the fruit juicer that my mom always complained about. Now we are blessed with heavenly tasting lemonade.
"So how was your day at school, bud?" He asks while sitting down with his food at the table.
"It was alright, my Pop chorus teacher is cool, but my chemistry teacher scares the shit out of me"
"Watch the language, but Pop chorus? You don't sing"
"Well when applying for classes I asked for them to put me in an arts class and that was the only one left. Plus supposedly I can sing. Today we all had to sing something in front of the class." I tell him while putting food into my mouth," and she called me back after class and was telling me I was really good. One of the best she's ever taught, or even the best ever. Then she made me an offer since I was 'to advanced' for that class." I say, emphasising 'to advanced.
"Uh huh what type of offer?" He asks suspiciously.
I explained to him that she wanted to coach me for the auditions that were next month in London.
"I don't know about this. I've never even heard you sing before or heard say you wanted to. Why not stick to playing the piano? You're really good at that."
"I'm telling you now though, Dad! I've been looking into it all day and there have been greats that have made it big from this. People like Cher Lloyd, Little Mix, Lewis Burkes, and One Direction. You hear about them all the time in the news. I want to be like them, dad. Or atleast try to." I explain to him.
He sighs "fine, but how is this going to happen?"
"I don't know yet, she just asked me to check it with you first. But thank you dad" I say while getting up and hugging him before heading upstairs to my room.
"I'm gonna be on X factor" I hum to myself while doing my school work and listening to performances of old contestants. When I finished my schoolwork it was late so I went to bed. Tomorrow was going to be an exciting day.
