Violets POV

"Wow Vi. When did you get a tattoo?" Kylie asked. We became pretty good friends. Her and Calum have been hanging out lately, and since I've been going over Luke's a lot, we really connected. "Who's Jaclyn?" She asked. "Oh, Jaclyn is my mom." I replied. She nodded.

"So, what's going on with you and Calum?" I asked. "We're just friends." She replied blushing. "If you're just friends, then why does Cal always talk about you. And you're blushing. You two are totally dating." I replied. "Okay, but shhh." She replied.

"Hey, Luke. Can you help me with something?" I asked him at lunch. "Sure, what's up?" He asked. "I wrote some songs, and since your in a band and stuff, I was wondering if you could like check then over, and see how they are." I said. "Sure. Let's see them." He said.

I pulled out the song lyrics. He looked at them, and read them. "Vi, this is good." He said. "Thanks." I replied. "You know, the guys and I have a garage gig this weekend-" "Luke, we have training." I said. "I talked it over with my mom, she said since we've been working hard, we don't need to train this weekend. It was gonna be the same stuff anyway." He replied. "As I was saying, we have a gig this weekend in my garage, if you wanna sing these two songs, we will help you." He said. I smiled. "Thank you!" I yelled hugging him.

It's Saturday, and it's the day of the little garage gig. I'm really nervous. The guys just finished their few songs, and now it's time for me. I've never sang before, so it's a little nerve racking.

"Just say your name. And what song your singing. And we will take it from there." Luke's voice said. I nodded. "My name is Violet, and this song is called People Like Us." I said.

We come into this world unknown

But know that we are not alone

They try and knock us down

But change is coming, it's our time now

Hey… everybody loses it,

Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

And hey… yeah I know what you're going through

Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive

Oh

People like us, we've gotta stick together

Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever

Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten

It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

We are all misfits living in a world on fire

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Hey, this is not a funeral

It's a revolution, after all your tears have turned to rage

Just wait, everything will be okay

Even when you're feeling like it's going down in flames

Oh

People like us, we've gotta stick together

Keep your head up nothing lasts forever

Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten

It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

We are all misfits living in a world on fire

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

You've just gotta turn it up loud when the flames get higher

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

They can't do nothing to you, they can't do nothing to me

This is the life that we choose, this is the life that we bleed

So throw your fists in the air, come out, come out if you dare

Tonight we're gonna change forever

Everybody loses it, everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

Oh

People like us, we've gotta stick together

Keep your head up nothing lasts forever

Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten

It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

We are all misfits living in a world on fire

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

We're all misfits living in a world on fire

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

You've just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher

Oh whoa oh oh whoa oh

Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

After the song, a girl came up to me. "Hi, your Violet and Luke right?" She asked. "Yes, and you are?" I replied. "My name is Chloe Woods. We need to talk." She replied. I looked at Luke.

"So, what do we need to talk about?" Luke asked. "Violet, your song, people like us, I couldn't help but think about myself." She said. "Okay?" I replied. "My dad told me many stories about the saviors who are meant to save my mother." She said.

"What happened to your mother, if you don't mind me asking." I said. "She left when I was born. My father told me she left because I'm like her." She said. "I know about you two. I know who you are." She said. "But don't worry, I'm like you too. My father told me that I was meant to follow the two saviors. And he sent me off, here. He trained me before I left." She said. "Well Chloe, welcome to our group." Luke said. She smiled. "Our parents will train you some more." I said.

"I'm Lucas Robert Hemmings." Luke said, her eyes got big. "I'm Violet Isabelle Damon-Carson." I said. Her eyes got even bigger. "Your... Your mom is... Is... Jaclyn Isabelle Damon." She said. I nodded. "Shes... Shes.... Shes the first savior." Chloe said. I nodded. "It's our fate, Chloe, to save our parents. Which means, it's yours too." I said. "Welcome to our group." Luke said with a smile. I could tell he liked her.
