I look up at the school. Someone stands beside me and puts their elbow on my shoulder. "Hopefully you can visit." Natasha says. "Yeah." I reply,turning to face her. "I saw Jack a minute ago,but I don't know where he went." She tells me. "Oh." She looks around and points to him. "There he is," She tells me and wraps me into a hug. "See you soon,hopefully." She says and walks off. I nod and run up to Sean and hug him. "I'll miss you." I tell him. "I'll miss you,too." He replies,hugging back. "If only there was a way to prove to my parents it's not useless." I sigh. Sean's face lights up. "Maybe there is!" He says and runs back through the open doors of the school. I run but stop in the middle of the hallway. "What do you mean?!" I yell after him. "You'll see! Just stall your parents when they come to pick you up!" He says over his shoulder and turns a corner.
"Hold on. I just want to take it all in. One last time,please?" I ask my parents. "Honey,we've been here for 5 minutes. I'm pretty sure-" Dad gets cut off as Sean runs back outside with a bunch of different YouTubers and a laptop in his hands. "Hold on!" Sean yells. "Mr. And Mrs. Woods,it is not completely useless here at YouTube High or YouTube in general. And to prove it to you,say hello to the live streams." Sean says and a bunch of YouTubers turn their laptops around to display a livechat and camera feed. "What is your name?" My mother demands. "My name is Sean McLoughlin. I'm your daughter's boyfriend." Sean answers. "Why are you doing this?" Dad asks. "To show you that we are certainly not useless and everyone here would miss Emily. Especially her viewers." Sean replies,turning his own laptop around,my YouTube channel's name displayed on the account spot. My parents scroll through the live chat,reading the comments. I stand there,my bag at my feet,waiting for their response. Mom sighs and looks at Dad. "Fine. She can stay." Dad says finally. "Whooooo!" Cheers escape the crowd and everyone embraces me and Sean. Everyone who has a livestream,closes it out,including me.
