The next day
Last night was the worst. I had to do stupid things for stupid reasons. And today we have school. Yippee. :( Shelby told me I was excused from all my classes to go to the studio they had at my school. 5sos is going to my school now. For a little bit until they preform for our school. Bella was too. Luke was going to work with the music auditions because there was going to be some concert sort of......so yeah.
I went in the studio again. I had to practice the chords for the song for Bella. I invited Gracie.
"Hello!!" She says walking in. I pull out my guitar.
"It's all clear. No one followed me."
"Why do you have to practice anyways?"
"If I don't practice I basically already have no life. It's complicated."
"Well-" se was cut off by hearing people getting closer to the studio. "I actually just wanted to show you something." I hear a guy say. Luke. "Your not going to serenade her are you mate?" Another guy says. Calum. "Who? Bella? I don't know. She's kinda over dramatic."
"Don't I know it."
"Well I still wanna show you something. I wrote a song and tell me if you like it."
"I'm lost in the world that messed up my brain. I'm cleanin' up my life from the mess you've made. My soul's in dept but my bills are paid, I'll give anything just to make an escape. So you can keep, knockin' knockin' knockin'. But baby your knocking but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna let you in. Not again. So keep on knockin' knockin' knockin' but baby your better off walking cause I'm not gonna let you in. Never again. I wanna better life again. I guess I had to lose, to win. I was too confused to know, which way to turn..."
"Wow." Was all I could manage to whisper.
My phone rings. "Crap." I whisper. "Shelby needs me to pick her up."
"...Cause baby there's nobody home. Nobody's home yeah!!" Luke finishes.
"Wow." Calum says. "That reminds me of a band....Seven Years Gone!!"
"Yeah." Luke nods.
"Come on." I mouth to Jasmine.
She nods. We managed to get by without being noticed.
LATER THAT DAY...
"Turn off the mic. Open the curtains. Turn out the lights I'm through rehearsing,-" I started singing.
"STOP!! STOP!! STOP!! Please, try that again and at least try not to sound horrible." Bella says.
I stare at her. Take a deep breathe. And say, "Fine." She smiles. We do it like fifty-million times before I get it "right." Pfft. Like they know anything about music. They didn't even know who the Foo Fighters were. WHO DOESNT?! "You get what you see..."
".....I'll make you believe in me!! I can be what you want me to be, tonight is the night that I'll make you see that I can be anything, anything you want from me......."
Tonight was the dance. Everyone was going and I really wanted to go but, I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't. "You are going to that dance." Gracie says.
"Maybe I shouldn't."
"No. I already convinced you to go!! Please!!" She begs.
"Only because literally nobody can resist that puppy dog face." I say in defeat.
"YES!!! GRACIE SCORES AGAIN!!"
"Hey, where's the dress?"
"Um I put it in my closet."
She went to get it. "Promise you'll wear it?"
"Promise." I say. She brings it over to my bed and opens the box. "Thanks again Grace."
"No prob. I think that's why some guy wrote a song about me."
"Uh that song that says Jasmine."
"I don't think there is one that I know....."
"Lela!! It's time to go to the studio!!" Shelby yells. "Isn't a little I late?! It 5:00!! Uh plus we have a dance today." That night all over again. "Out I go!!" Jasmine says, again, jumping out the window. 5 minutes later Shelby walks in. "Maybe. We'll work on it tomorrow. So I'm being nice this onc-" she sees the dress. I look at the dress then her. "Oh sweetheart. You thought you could sneak off to the dance...oh no, no, no, no, no. After what you pulled with Guy? No. You're on Victor watch. Tonight and every night." ((PS: that's the brothers name.))
"You heard me." She says finally and leaves. " Jasmine's head pokes out. "Your life stinks Lela."
"Trust me. It gets worse."
"You can still go to the dance." She says.
"How?" I say plopping on my bed.
"I mean. How could I believe myself that something good could happen tonight."
"Look you can go by me doing this." She says climbing through the window and pulling out her phone. "Hello? Yes. Hey bro. Can you watch Victor? Huh? Oh it's Lela's little brother. Okay. Thanks!! Bye."
"What did you do?"
"Asked my bro to take care of Victor and he said yes which means you can go to the dance."
"Really?! Thank you so freaking much!!! I love you!!" I say jumping up and running over to Shelby's house and into the kitchen.
Victor was dancing on the table. "Victor!! Get off of that. You might hurt yourself. Or even worse the furniture!!" I say, scolding him.
"Hello?" Jasmine says walking in.
"Over here!!" I yell. Victor grabs the fish on the table that I was going to cook and throws it.
"VICTOR NO!!" It heads for one of Shelby's portraits and hits it right where her nose is.
"She actually looks prettier that way." Jasmine says.
Knock, knock, knock. Jasmine's brother. "Be right back." I say running over to the door. Jasmine's brother comes inside. "Nice place. The names Tony by the way."
"Hi!! I remember and thanks."
"Alright where's the kid?"
"In the kitchen."
He walks into the kitchen and says, "ALRIGHT!! You can trust me you can go to your dance thing."
"Thank you!! Really. Uh bye!!"
"See ya!!" He says. "Now kid. You like race cars?"
"Where is Luke?" I ask.
"I don't know. I didn't say this would be easy....I know he's a blonde with blue eyes and is really tall." Jasmine says walking ahead of me and bumping into someone. "Oh God. I'm sorry." The boy says. "Uh I'm Calum."
Calum!! Luke's friend!!
"Hi. I'm Jasmine." She says just standing there being awkward. "So. See ya later?"
We walk away. We'll actually Gracie was pulling me but, meh.
I see Shebly.
"What's she doing here?" I say.
"Hey look. There's Luke." I say pointing at him.
"Well he is blonde...."
"A really hot blonde though."
((This feels really weird because Luke is my brother...))
"Yuppers. Sure he is." She says sarcastically.
"Shut up. I'm gonna go talk to him."
"And I'll distract Ms.Shelby." Jasmine says walking off.
I walk up to Luke. "I know your secret."
"And what secret is that?" He asks. Dang his Aussie accent!!
"Um. I'll explain it later just follow me." I say leading him outside.
I grab my guitar that I had put out here before I tried finding Luke. "What is that?"
"What? Haven't you seen a guitar before?"
"You were hiding that. What else are you hiding?"
"Maybe some day you'll find the answer to that question."
