Chapter 1: The Offer
I'm Emily Renée Hilt. A hair and makeup girl at the barber shop in the small town of Redville, Indiana(made it up). People say I'm really good at what I do but I'm just doing something I love. I'm currently 16 but I'm turning 17 in about 2 months. I'm at 'work' right now. I don't really call it work because I love it so much but it is because I get payed. We were currently not busy. Only one person here.
"Em! Someone's here to see you!" Julie yelled. She's the owner of this place. There's 3 people who work here plus Julie. There's me, Ryan(he's gay), Sarah, and Julie. Sarah and Julie are really sweet and Ryan's more sassy then anything. Today it's only me and Julie.
"Ok Julie!" I walked to the front of the shop. "Hi." I said. There was this big guy. He seemed really important, and I a fancy suit that seemed to cost thousands.
"Hello Ms. Hilt. I hear you are very excellent at what you do?"
"Well, I don't really call this a job. I love what I do so it's an honor to have people love what I do as much as me." He nods, as if impressed with my answer.
"Good. My wife would like a hair do over. Can you do that?" He asked. I nodded.
"Of course! Bring her in and I'll start right away." He steps out for only a couple minutes. Then comes back with a gorgeous woman.
"Hello, nice to meet you. You must be Ms. Hilt."
"Why yes I am." I shook her hand before leading her back to the room. "Now, what did you have in mind?" I asked her as she sat down in the chair.
"Well, I wanted to dye my hair. Then if you can, curl it to perfection. Oh! And a little black bow to!" I nod.
"Ok, what color?"
"Ummmm....... Auburn." I nod and grab the dye.
"Ok, since this is considered a dark color, we won't bleach your hair so let's just get to it." She nods.
~After hair dying~
"Ok I'm done." I step back and hand her a mirror.
"Oh my god. I love it! You're absolutely amazing! Ok now for the curls." I nod and grab the curling iron.
~2 hours later~
I clip the black bow on and spin her around to the big mirror on the wall.
"Wow....... I'm speechless." Before she was blonde and had straight hair. Now she's a red head with luscious curls. And a little black bow. "I love it!" She gets up and hugs me. I smile.
"Let's get back." She nods and happily follows behind me. "Ok, here she comes!" She walks in front of me and everyone gasped.
"Oh my god. Honey you look fantastic!"
"Well thank her. I think she'll be great for the job!" Wait job? What job?
"If she can do this to your hair, imagine what she can do to Mikey's!" Who the hell is Mikey?
"Yes! Ask her!" Ask who what? I'm getting confused.
"Emily, we would like to offer you a job."
"As a bands hair stylist."
"Have you heard of 5 Seconds of Summer?"
"Yes. But they aren't my type of music. Why?"
"Because we would like to offer you a job as being 5 Seconds of Summer's hair stylist!" I just stand there. Speechless. This is amazing!
"Hello?" He waves his hand in front of my face. I snap back to reality.
"Oh. Yes! Yes I would love to!!"
"Great. You start tomorrow. The boys will be in Indianapolis. Just bring about 1 years worth of clothes. Better yet, just bring your whole wardrobe." I nod. "And all you tolietries and any other things you might need." I nod. "Well have a good day! I'll be here at 8am to pick you up. Be ready!"
He leaves with his wife. I stand there not knowing what to say. This is literally the offer of a lifetime. I can't wait to start tomorrow.
