13. Jane's Story Part 4:


   I'm walking down the carpeted hallway of the school when someone grabs my wrist, pulling me to an abrupt halt. "Hey, Jane!"

   I turn to come face to face with Lucas. He looks at me from behind his shaggy blonde bangs with a warm smile placed on his face. "Oh...what is it?" I ask, trying hard to keep my eyes open. I was up all night, tossing and turning...and secretly drinking.

   He nods his head towards the sign up sheet on the heavy theater doors. "You should audition."

   I stare at the sheet for a moment, contemplating the idea. I was in the last play and I got a pretty good part. It was fun, not to mention everyone thinks I'm a great actress. "I don't know.." I blurt, not really prepared. It's kind of a last minute thing..

   "Come on, Jane," he releases my wrist, "You're meant to shine."

   I look down at the floor, feeling my cheeks redden. "You think so?" I ask.

   "I know so. Plus, you'll love this play! Mr. Jackson created it himself. I checked out the script and it's intense! You'd love it! And maybe you could even audition with me? You know, if you're up for it." He grins, flipping his bangs out of the way, revealing his sparkling blue eyes.

   I laugh, "Audition? With you? Well, it sounds like fun!" My face lights up with excitement, "Erm..are you sure they'd let us..audition together?"

   "I'm sure I can get 'em to let us. I've got charm." We both laugh at that before he continues, "There's one part I really know I can play and I can prove it to them if I do this one scene..but I need someone else to do it with me for the perfect..effect. And I'm sure you could pull the scene off perfectly, too. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if we both got the leads." He winks flirtatiously with an irresistible smirk. 

   "Seriously?" I laugh a little and glance away, the bedazzlement in his eyes causing me to smile uncontrollably. 

   "Seriously." He grins, "But I'm supposed to be auditioning in about half an hour..think you'll be able to learn the scene with me before then?"

   I hesitate before responding--half an hour? He didn't mention that his audition was that soon..."Uh...why not?" I answer, looking right at him. How can I say no to those gorgeous blue eyes?

   "Alright then!" He smiles happily, taking my hand and pulling me down the hallway to get to work.


   "Awesome!" Lucas puts his hands up for a double high five and I slap his palms, excitement rushing through my veins. The act we just put together is amazing! They're gonna love it!

   The theater doors spring open and a girl with short blond hair peeks her head out. "Lucas, it's your turn to audition!"

   "Hey, Amanda! Jane's gonna audition with me, okay? We have an entire scene from the script ready together and it's better than you've ever imagined it! I promise." He winks, revealing that charm of his.

   The blond glances at me, then back at Lucas, "Well...I don't know if that's gonna work out...we'd like you to audition alone..and she didn't even sign up.."

   "I'll talk to Mr. Jackson myself." Lucas says, pushing past Amanda. She rolls her eyes before heading back into the theater. The large door slams shut, leaving me alone in the hall.

   I stand there and cross my arms, rocking back and fourth on my heels casually. This is a good idea. I need something to get my mind off of reality; like acting. It's all just fake drama...and fun, too. And to top it all off, I get to act with a cute guy. I blush, just thinking about it.

   I hear someone walking nearby, causing me to lift my head up. It's Lily Parkington, with her long blond hair in ponytails, gentle blue eyes, and petite, little blue dress. She stops in front of the theater doors, staring at the sign up sheet.

   "So..are you auditioning?" I ask, heading over to her.

   "Huh?" She asks, startled. I don't think she noticed I was even there until I said something. "Oh..uh, yeah..I am...but, I'm not really all that good at front of people especially...I just need to get more involved with after school activities...and theater was all I could come across.." She bites her lip awkwardly.

   Suddenly, the door flies open, making Lily jump back out of the way.

   "Oh, sorry!" Lucas exclaims, eyeing Lily.

   "No, it's fine.." she replies softly.

   "Jane, Mr. Jackson said you can audition with me!" He smiles, once again showing off his perfect row of white teeth.

   I raise an eyebrow, "Let's do this."

   I follow Lucas onto the stage, the bright lights shining down on me. I squint, but I feel good. The theater is my only place I actually feel safe.

   Four people, including Mr. Jackson, are seated behind a brown wooden table, below the stage.

   "So, you two are going to be demonstrating a Act two, Scene four, am I correct..?" asks Mr.Jackson.

   "Yep!" Lucas nods, as Amanda shuts the director's cut clap board. She crosses her legs and lifts an eyebrow, awaiting ultimate perfection.

   "Tara!" Lucas calls, gliding closer to me. He grasps onto my wrist and I turn to face him, my eyes filled with distress. They search his for some kind of answer, wondering what he has in mind. "Please," he begs, now gripping my hand tightly with both of his, "don't just can't just leave! I love you! I always have and I'll never stop! No matter how much they try to pull us apart..." 

   He gazes upon me, hoping I'll give in. But I pull away before I do. "Ziel..." I say softly, "it's too late..I'm sorry. Our love is forbidden.." I bite my lip and look away, tears welling up in my eyes. "You're from a whole other world..and your kind is coming back for you..I can't come with..they'll kill me..they'll kill you..both of us.." 

   He carefully steps forward, gently embracing me as he rests his head against mine. "It doesn't matter...we won't let them catch us. But if they do, I'll protect you. They can take me. I don't care. To die having loved someone so flawlessly beautiful inside and out, to die saving my beloved...that would be fine with me." He whispers into my ear, "But I will never allow them to lay a hand on you, my love."  

   I pull back a little and look him deeply in the eyes, clutching his hands. "Ziel...I would do keep you alive." I place one of my hands against his cheek and he places his own over it, "I love you so much...if you died..I would die myself. Please," I begin to tear up more, tears streaming down my cheeks as my voice cracks, "please, don't die.."

   We're so into the scene that I barely realize the 'judges' are staring at us in awe. They've fallen in love with us. Usually, they would stop us right in the middle of an audition, but they just let us keep going. 

   "Tara, neither of us is going to die." He takes my hand and kisses it softly, looking back up at me, the most sincere look in his deep blue eyes. 

   I gulp and look down at my feet which are close to his, "I just don't think I can take that chance.." I slip from his hands and move backward, slowly shaking my head with sorrow. "I'm sorry, Ziel...I love you too much for anything to happen to you." 

  Lucas suddenly pulls me close to his chest so that we can feel each other's breath against our cold skin, "Well I love you too much to lose you, Tara..." We gaze into each other's eyes for a moment when Lucas eventually leans in and kisses me on the lips passionately.

   I thought we weren't actually going to do the kiss...As shocked as I truly am, I kiss him back. It feels right...right in the sense of this scene...and right..for me.
