2. Chapter Two

I woke up to the sound of my phone buzzing on the side table. I didn’t quite understand what was going on and was confused because I had been told I could just sleep as long as I wanted to.

Dizzy and still half asleep I looked at my phone. A few of my friends at school had been texting me that the video was all over the internet. Which video? I was confused for a second and not ready to face the real world yet. I was in the middle of a good dream when I was forced out into reality.

Amy you better not get online today. Everyone’s asking for you online, and the video has more than 200 shares right now. Just stay in bed ok?

My good friend Kristy had been warning me, but I was still confused about what was going on. Maybe staying home wasn’t the best idea I had had in a long time, but I felt better at home, though waking up to this message really confused me, and somehow it hurt me really bad. I made my way out of the bed, still sleepy and turned on my laptop. I was sitting in front of my desk wearing a universe printed shirt and looking into the screen. My mind wasn’t where it was supposed to be and I felt all out of place, even though I kept my eyes locked to the screen in front of me.

I took a deep breath and cleared my mind and rubbed my eyes before I started looking through YouTube where my video had been posted. It was on Facebook as well and I saw people sharing it. I couldn’t really see what was written on the screen, so for a short while I got up and found my glasses and placed my hair up in a messy bun, before I got back down to my seat in front of the desk.

Who is this girl?

Why can’t we see her face? She’s so talented.

Lol… what an attention whore! I go to school with that little midget.

Fuck you Amy. You only do this for attention!

God I hate that girl…

If she’s as beautiful as she’s talented God really gave her a gift. Everyone should see this video.

There were endless rude and kind comments and I couldn’t help but feel happy. I loved how most people respected me and wanted to know who I was, but on the other had this was my music. This wasn’t something I wanted to share with the world. It was something I only wanted for me.

My phone was buzzing again, but this time it was a text from my mum.

Hey sweetheart. I’m out shopping so I won’t be home until 2pm. Hope you’re feeling better today. I left some money in the kitchen for Karen. She’s coming over to pick them up in 15.

Karen was my aunt. Mum and her had always been really close and that never trailed off even though they grew up and moved to different parts of the town.

I’m great thanks mum. I’ll let her know you’re out when she gets her.

I was never the one to write long texts. I wanted my messages to be short and only have the most certain information needed for the people who read them.

I continued for a long time to read the comments that showed up on my video. It was impossible to move that fast around the internet, or that is what I thought until this video was around. I knew my singing was good, but I still had a lot to learn and I was still in process of getting even better, but somehow I made people love me.

As soon as my aunt was here I gave her the money. I hissed her to get out, but she insisted that she needed a coffee before she took off again.

While I was making the coffee Karen was sitting by the table we had in the kitchen. Usually I wouldn’t speak much to my aunt. I loved her a lot, but she was more like the business woman, just like my father was the business man. Somehow I think it’s funny that they didn’t get together. My mum was so relaxed compared to my dad. My mum didn’t work much. She didn’t have to either. My dad was the one with the money in the family, but there was no way that they would ever separate. My dad worked as a lawyer, just like my aunt did. My aunt was the one to give my dad his really important job, and he really did enjoy every second of it.

“So how’s school going sweetheart?”

Karen looked up from the paper she had found on the table and started reading while I was pouring up the brown liquid in two cups.

“It’s okay. We’re working on the musical in art.”

“So you’re singing?”

“No I’m making the costumes. I think my designs are gonna make it perfectly and then I won’t have to stand up in front of all these people.”

“Amy sweetheart, you’ve been blessed with the voice of an angel. Show it to the world.”

“Do you really think I would make it?”

“I’m sure you will. You’re a strong girl, so if this is what you want to show the world, this is what you should do.”

My aunt didn’t know about the video or glee club. She was too busy with all of her work to take care of me. What she didn’t know was that what she said to me, made me stronger and this was something I really wanted to. I wanted to be stronger, but I didn’t believe enough. My aunt made me believe that day. I’ll forever be thankful for the things she said to me that day, because those were the words that started my new life.

As soon as Karen left I went back to my room. The video had more than 20K views and I was surprised how fast word moved out and spread all over the world. Someone I knew must have shared it with their friends abroad, otherwise it wouldn’t have been able to spread this fast.

I wanted to comment on the video as soon as I was back locked to my screen, but people would know it was me, and I didn’t want them to do that. I wanted to be unknown at least for now. I think this day was the one to change my life the most, because it was here it all started.

I went into my blog and the few readers I had were asking me about the video and if I knew anything about it, because they knew it was a girl from my school. I knew I wasn’t supposed to react on all this but yet I couldn’t help but do different. I spread the video myself, because everyone was about to see it, and soon someone would start looking for me, and I knew that soon people would know that it was me.

The halo cover video

Some people have been asking me about the halo cover video that’s currently going all around the internet. People talking about it were even the thing to wake me up this morning. It was sent to me from a lot of different people, and honestly I don’t know how to react on this.

I do know the girl in the video yes. She goes to my school, and I’m really close to her. Maybe even closer than some of you would believe…

I can’t tell you much, as she didn’t wish for the video to be shown to anyone. I know she has a talent, but her life is harder than you think. So for now this is all you’re gonna hear. I’ll give you more information as soon as I’m allowed to tell more.

I posted the link at the end of my blog despite the fact that I knew it would be shared with even more people. I lay back in my bed as soon as I was done with my blog. I wasn’t ready to get up, and I just wanted to hide away. People were making fun of me, more than ever, but I knew this was the time for me to be stronger, and stronger was what I felt when I wasn’t the person I was in the real world. I was stronger and better in my dreams.

I woke up when my mum stroke me over my hair. Apparently she had come home from her shopping.

“It’s time to get up now Amy. It’s 2.30”

“I wanna sleep.”

“Sweetheart, it’s the middle of the afternoon. Please get out of bed.”

“I have been up already.”

I turned around and stared up in the ceiling. I was so not in the mood for getting up, but soon I was forced to do so. Not by my mum but by my buzzing phone at my desk.

“Someone’s popular.”

My mum smirked at me, which made me smile the first real smile I had had printed to my face for a couple of days.

I was looking at my phone and shocked I saw that Kristy had texted me again. 

I told you, you shouldn't get up. People know it's you Amy and they want more! Why don't you react positive on this? They love you! 

I wanted my mum to leave before I replied to Kristy. She didn't have to know about the video yet. I'm pretty sure she would see it herself as soon as she went onto her Facebook account. 

I'll call you in a sec and then we'll talk. Busy right now. 

"What are your plans for the day?" 

"I think I'm gonna start knitting again." 

"Mum seriously?" 

"I don't know sweetheart. Keep you safe I guess." 

"Oh..." 

"Is there anything you want me to?" 

"Leave my room please? Kristy wants to speak on the phone alone." 

"Sure." 

My mum smiled at me and soon I turned back to my phone. My mum had always been great, especially when it came to Kristy. Kristy was the first friend I got and we had best friend since the very first day we met. It was back in third grade where she stood up for me because of the bullies. 

As soon as my mum left my room I pressed Kristy’s picture and my phone called her straight away.

“So what’s going on?”

I couldn’t hear anything there was just a lot of noise and people talking about me not being there. It was a huge chaos at the school and Kristy was in the middle of it.

“Kristy what’s going on?”

I heard her move with her phone and soon the noise was gone.

“Everyone’s talking about you Amy. They love the song, but a lot of people are skeptical as well. What are you going to do about it?”

“Nothing, I told you. I don’t want any of this. I didn’t want it on YouTube in the first place.”

“But it’s there now and everyone’s talking. Have you seen your blog? Everyone’s reading this calling you a liar. Even they know that it’s you. You have to do something?!”

“People never liked me Kristy. Why would they do it now?”

“Because you have something they want. They envy you. Amy you’re a beautiful and talented girl. Why won’t you share that with the world?”

“Because I don’t need it. I just want them to leave me alone instead of all this. I don’t need fame. I don’t need people suddenly liking me, because of something I’ve been doing my whole life.”

“But what if you turn out big?”

“Then I don’t want it. I just told you. You’re the one who wants the fame, I don’t need it to be the person I am. It’ll change me.”

We spoke for a long time, and when I went to bed that night I was thinking about it a lot. I had been online earlier and Kristy was right. People did know it was me, and it just continued going on for long and longer. Maybe Kristy was right. Maybe I did need to do something about this, but not on the first day. I wanted them to hunger, to show that this wasn’t just something I jumped right into.

When my mum came into my room, she had a worried expression written on her face. She had the iPad in one hand, and looked at me sadly.

“Why didn’t you tell me about this Amy?”

She showed me the video clip of my halo cover and then sat down on the side of my bed.

“Because it’s no big deal.”

“It is sweetie. It’s so beautiful and your voice suits that song perfectly.”

“I know mum, but I didn’t want it to get this big. Look at the number. It has more than 80K views.”

“I know sweetheart.”

“Mum most YouTuber’s don’t even get that many views in the amount of time I’ve gotten it. It’s been there for 24 hours.”

“It’s up to you Amy, but you know I’m here to support you if you choose to respond to this. I think you should do it. Maybe it would shut those people up.”

She stroke me over the hair and kissed my cheek before she went out of the room. What my mum said made me stronger and I knew she was right. Maybe it would shut up those people, but it could also make it worse. I had to think about this. I really had to.
