THE NEXT DAY.....
"Hehehehehe." I say to myself. I start to carve out my mom's face out of her portrait that took hours to make.
Actually, days. I mean, look at her. My mom is not a pretty picture.
My mom's face then drops off and I stick my head in the part where it feel off.
"Nom Nom Nom." I say, making funny noises.
"Victor!!" I hear Lela yell.
I drop the portrait and run down my spiral staircase.
"Victor. Pick. Up. Your. Guitar." She tells me.
I huff and pick it up.
She smiles. "Thank-you, Victor. Really. I've had a rough day." She then walks off.
I start playing random notes on the guitar.
"IM A ROCKSTAR!! BOOM!! POW!!" I yell.
Then there was a knock. I "gallop" over to the door and press my ear towards it.
"Who is it?" I question.
"Uh, its me, Luke." The dude says.
Oh. This is the guy Bella's going out with. Hm. I thought he would have sounded, more, manly, I guess.
"OTAY. Tome in. It's open." I say, leaving and going back to my spot where I was "practicing."
He opens the door slowly like my grandpa.
I just look at him and blink.
I smile all creepy like and play my guitar again.
"Dun-dun-dun-DUN!!" I yell as I "strum" the guitar strings.
I notice that the dude named Luke is looking at me.
"May I help you?" He asks.
"Uhm. Sure." I say, shrugging.
"Okay so try playing this chord." He says putting his fingers down on his guitar to form a chord.
I place my fingers the same way he did.
"Like this?" I ask.
He looks down at my fingers.
"Move them up just a little bit." He says.
I do so.
"There. Looks great. Now try to remember that. Then try this chord."
I look at his fingers. "Um. Can you help me with that?" I ask.
"Sure." He smiles.
Ugh. He's so nice it's disgusting.
He grabs my hand and then he puts my fingers on the right frets.
"Strum." He says.
I strum. Oh cool! Now it sounds like an actual instrument.
"Now go back to the first. Then the second." He says.
I do and it sounds awesome!
"You did great! You wanna try something harder?" He asks.
"Okay, here try thi-"
"Oh hi Luke!" Bella says coming over to him.
I make an angry face.
"Hey! He was teaching me somethi-" I start to say.
She pushes me away with her hand.
"Hmph." I muffle.
"You're such a-"
"Hey Victor?" I hear someone say.
"AH! Who's there?" I ask.
"It's me Lela you nit-wit."
I kind of haven't finished the song I told Bella I would write. Can you help me?" She asks.
"Hmm." I say. "I want mac and cheese tonight for dinner. And only me." I say.
"Fine." She says.
She walks away.
I walk over to where Luke is.
Bella wasn't there and I wonder what happened. Where did she go?
"Hey Luke." I say.
"Oh, hey Lela." He says, smiling.
"What you doing?" I ask, plainly.
"Trying to tune my guitar."
"Can I help?" I ask.
He looks up at me.
"You can play? Or do you just know how to tune."
"Oh. Um no. I just know how to tune." I say, clearly lying.
"Oh. Well. Sure." He says handing me the guitar.
I take it and start to tune.
After a while I actually got that one string that was way out of tune.
"Here ya go." I say, giving his guitar back to him.
"Thanks." He strums it and smiles.
"Sounds good." ((FEELS GOOD))
"Glad I could hel-"
"Lela! There you are! Look at what Victor did. And guess who's going to have I fix it?" She says handing me the portrait that Shelby had someone to paint.
"Why me?" I ask.
She just smiles.
"I will be right back Luke." She says smiling and turning to me, pushing me out of the room.
"Give me the song." She demands.
"It's not done." I say.
"What?!" She whisper shouts.
"You have to have it done."
"Well guess what, it's not done. It takes time to write songs. They don't just finish in under a 24 hour period." I say.
"Then give me what you have." She says, desperately.
I breathe in.
"Don't break my heart." I say.
She looks at me blankly.
"That's it?" She asks.
Her face scrunches up.
She drags me upstairs to Victors room and opens the door without a care.
"Victor!" She calls.
"Hey, let go of my wrist." I say pulling my wrist away.
"Victor!" She calls again.
We walk into his room and we spot this "tunnel" that led into his large closet.
We crawl trough it and we didn't find a closet, we found a camera system.
What? What is this?
We look at the screens and we see Luke sitting there on our couch looking around.
I couldn't help but laugh.
Victor walks into the room and asks us what we were doing.
"We need something to where I can hear Lela and she can hear me but Luke can't see her or hear her." Bella says.
"You've come to the right person."
He walks past is and grabs little things and tell us to put them on.
"We put this in our ear?" I ask.
"No, you put in in you foot. Of course you put it in your ear dimwit." Victor says.
"Okay then." I say.
Honestly, I don't think it's fair.
Why is my life so terrible?
But, another girls life could be worse, so why am I complaining?
"So I just speak now?" I ask.
"Yeah. And she should then be able to here you." Victor says nodding.
"Okay, thank you Victor. I know it's hard to shine through when you have a sister like me, but I'm thankful that I have a brother that doesn't bother me, but helps me when I need it..." Bella says, smiling.
I roll my eyes.
"Welp. I'm gonna go downstairs to see Luke!" She says, leaping out of the room.
"That camera right there is where Bella and Luke will be. And I will be sitting next to you and eating my mac and cheese." Victor says sitting in a chair next to me.
I take in a breath and let it out.
"Hey,hey. Can you here me?" Bella says into the tiny earpiece.
"Can you see me?"
"Bella are you okay? You're kinda talking to your self."
I heard Luke say.
I laugh to myself because, it's Bella.
Kind of have to.
"Oh! Um yeah just, I'm checking on my um. LELA! Yeah. She's kinda texting me."
"Okay...? Wanna get started?"
Ugh. And I have to watch this?!
"So, do you have any lyrics we can work with?" Luke asks.
"Oh, um yeah. I'm on lyric is....."
"Don't break my heart." I remind her.
"Uh, don't break my heart."
I see Luke trying out some chords for that single lyric and then smiles.
"You have anymore?"
"Um yes. Let me just try and remember them."
"Uh, um, don't break my heart before I give it to you." I say.
"Don't brake my heart before I give it to you."
"Don't break my heart before........I give it to you." Luke says, finding chords again for the whole part.
"Nice. I like it."
"Really? Thanks. I put a lot of thought into it." Bella says, smiling.
I want to reach my hand through this screen and strangle her.
"It's good. Have anymore?"
"Yes I do, um."
"Um, don't tell me no before I give I ask you to." I say, not really sure about that lyric.
"Don't tell me no before I ask you to."
Luke nods and again finds chords.
He looks up and Bella taps the earpiece, I'm guessing because I heard a loud CLACK in my ear.
"OW! I felt and heard that!" I yell in her ear.
"Fine. Um don't say it doesn't fit before you try it on."
"Don't say it doesn't fit before you try it on."
Luke nods and strums his guitar.
"I love your song. It has feeling. We should write together more often. So, you have anymore?"
I wasn't a really fast thinker but at this time I am.
".....All these possibilities. So many little possibilities......"
Luke finishes the song and Bella scoots closer to him.
"You just made it sound a lot better than I made it sound when I sang it." Bella flirts.
"No problem." She smiles.
I look closely at the camera, because before I wasn't really paying attention to them because I was thinking of lyrics.
But now, I feel like crying.
I see Bella kissing Luke and I want to just cry and ball up.
I just stare at the screen and Victor keeps looking at me. I feel it.
"You okay?" Victor asks me. I take out the ear piece
I get up and run down the stairs, not bothering to answer anyone's questions.
When I make it to the bottom I see them again.
I feel like falling, I want to be sucked up into a black hole.
I clear my throat.
They brake apart quickly and Luke puts his hand on his lip and and says, "Ow."
"I was just about to go out and get some pie." I lie.
"And I was wondering if you guys would like some, too, like, why would I just go and get pie without getting or ya know asking if anyone wanted any? That would be so rude of me. Which is why I am down here." I blab.
Victor runs up beside me.
"I want pie!" He says, raising his hand.
"No thanks." Bella says.
"Actually I think I should go. My band is probably looking for me." Luke says getting up and taking his guitar.
"Wait. But we were doing things and writing." Bella says, jumping off of the bed.
"Yeah. And it was great. I just gotta go. See ya Lela." He smiles and leaves.
