"....I can see it through the spark in your eyes. You're believing in all the things you denied. You wanna fly and leave your worries behind, don't you, don't you?" I sang but was cut off by Gracie saying, "And you've only had one hour and you're that far?"
"Well it's kinda easy. I've written a bunch of other songs."
"You are literally blessed."
"I don't think so. Look at where I live. Look at my stepmom. Look at my brother and sister. Probably not as blessed as you think."
"But you're musically talented. I consider that blessed."
I just sat. "I guess. But you're also talented."
"But in dancing you are."
"And also you're good in skate boarding."
"True. But only because my dad taught me and he's amazing."
I smile. "You should really sing that to Luke at the masquerade."
"But I won't be able to. And plus I have nothing to where."
"Oh yes you do." She days pulling out a box from under my bed.
"How long has that been there?"
She shrugs. "About two days." She says simply. I laugh. "What is it?"
"Something you will definitely need to go to the dance." She says opening the box.
A beautiful light blue dress is revealed and a royal blue mask is revealed too. There was also a royal blue sweater that would cover my shoulders.
"Wow, Grace. I don't deserve you as a friend. I really don't."
"You say that all the time ,but you are going to that dance."
"Fine I'll go."
"LELA!! The dog pooped in my closet again!!"
We start jumping around to hide the dress but then I hear Shelby getting closer.
"Oof!" Gracie says jumping out of my window. Just to be clear my house is not big like my stepmom's house.
My door swings open. "I told you we don't have a dog." I say.
"Well it still doesn't mean you don't have to clean it up and th-"
Her eyes scanned the room.
"What happened here?"
"Just umm"-I was thinking about a good excuse to why my house was a mess.- "Oh!! Um I was redecorating. Yeah I was just moving some things."
"Hmm," -she's says still looking around- "we'll your phone was ringing. It was Guy. It seems that you gave him a cd."
I was shocked. Did he like it?
"He loved it."
"Really?! That's amazing!! For once your being nice to me oh thank yo-"
"Oh honey. Don't get ahead of yourself. I told him it was Bella's cd and you stole it from her."
"What? No, you can't do that."
"Oh but I can. And I found a way to get to that money your daddy gave you to use to go to college."
She's grabbed my guitar and shoved it in my face. "Let's see why Guy loves this voice so much."
I snatch the guitar away from her, smile and start playing
"Like a malignant tumor she's got no sense of humor, just like a swollen blister it's best to just resist her. She's not exactly a witch she's just a terrible bi-" She took the guitar away. "We'll your lyrics are terrible but Guy's right, you've got chops."
I smile sarcastically. She pulls me out of my house and basically drags me over to her house.
"Du ray me fo so la to douuughhhh." Someone sang. More like screeched. Someone here needs lessons. Ouch. My ears hurt. I covered my ears and so did Shelby.
It was Bella. She literally couldn't sing to save her life.
"OOH BELLA!!" Shelby says.
"Hahahaha!!" I hear my little brother Aaron yell as he ran across the room.
Shelby just ignored him.
"Oh honey, you can't sing at all."
"Mom! Why would you say that?"
"I'm sorry. But it'll be okay."
"You have Lela."
"And how is that going to help."
"Uh I'm pretty sure I'm a she and not a 'that.'" I say.
"You may not be able to sing but this girl can."
"You've got to be kidding." Bella says with an attitude.
"Oh no,no,no,no,no. She's got chops and you are going to lip-sync her voice."
"Already kinda had that idea."
"We'll lets just say it was mine."
Bella rolls ear eyes. "Fine."
"What if I don't want to?" I say.
"Lela, if you don't do this I will cut all the money your daddy saved you and you can forget about college and your dreams, and you can just stay here with me." Shelby says.
"If you like her so much why don't you just say that she sings good and I don't?"
"Because honey, look at you. You were born to be a star."
"You were. And this rat is going to help you."
"I really don't want to." I say.
"So, this college thing ain't working for you I'll make sure that little friend of yours doesn't get a scholarship to go to her dream school Juliard. I saved your life and I-"
"You didn't do anything. My dad married you."
"Don't get snarky with me. I would have put you in an orphanage but they were already filled up on ugly."
I gasp sarcastically. "Funny, was it because they thought you were joining me?"
She glares at me then stands up straight.
"Alright Lela. Let's stop fighting and get started." She says simply.
