Mer

"Mer, how did you get from being a small town girl from Texas to being a the 'Golden Girl' of the music industry?" the interviewer asked.
I bit my lip and slightly giggled. "Well you see, it all started with a silly dare."

3. Chapter 2

I sat in my desk chair as I waited patiently for Kensie to set up the camera. I bit my lip, nervious about singing again. I mean singing the first time was nerve racking  and this time, I would be singing alone.
Kill me now.
"Okay, the camera's ready. Are you ready, Mer?" Kensie said glancing at me over the camera. I gave her a thumps up. Beside her, Sarah counted to three and then pointed at me.
"Hey guys! Wow, I didn't expect to get views on my last video." I ran my hand through my dark hair before smiling up at the camera.
"So, I've decided to do more videos, if that makes you guys happy." I clapped my hands together before saying, "Today, I'll be singing 'Amensia' by 5 Seconds of Summer. Hope you guys like it."
I placed my hands on the keyboard in front of me and took a deep breath.

 

I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted
I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted

And even though your friends tell me you're doing fine

Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he's right beside you?
When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

'Cause I'm not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

'Cause I'm not fine at all

The pictures that you sent me they're still living in my phone
I'll admit I like to see them, I'll admit I feel alone
And all my friends keep asking why I'm not around

It hurts to know you're happy, yeah, it hurts that you've moved on
It's hard to hear your name when I haven't seen you in so long

It's like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

'Cause I'm not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

I felt my voice start to crack as I sang the next verse.

If today I woke up with you  beside me

Like all of this was just some twisted dream
I'd hold you closer than I ever did before
And you'd never slip away
And you'd never hear me say

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

'Cause I'm not fine at all
No, I'm really not fine at all
Tell me this is just a dream
'Cause I'm really not fine at all

As I belted out the last line of the song, emotions took over me and tears slipped out. I took a deep breath before looking up at the camera. It took me a minute to realize that I was crying.


I rubbed my eyes. "S-Sorry guys. I guess this song really got to me."


I recovered myself and smiled. "Hope you guys enjoyed the video! Make sure to follow me on twitter and subscribe! Bye!" I waved at the camera before Kensie turned it off.

I sighed as I ran a hand through my hair.  Sarah grabbed the camera from Kensie and begin editing the video on the laptop. 
"Well, I'm heading out. Charlie is taking me on a date. Wish me luck" She said giving us a thumps up before leaving my room. With nothing to do till Sarah gets done with the video, I pulled out my phone and got on Twitter.

 

@TheFabulousMer: Just finished recording my video for a new cover! Will be up shortly. xx

 

Since the first video, my followers on Twitter went from 3 to about 3,000. It made me feel happy that people actually liked my voice. My phone beeped to see that I had a new notification, I clicked on the tab bar.

 

 

@ShawnMenedes: @TheFabulousMer Can't wait!

 

 

And of course, ever since my first video went up, the Shawn Menedes followed me on Twitter. I fangirled hard.
"It's posted!" Sarah chirped. I fropped my phone onto the bed and walked over to my desk. Sarah looked up at me and grinned. "Now all we have to do is wait. Why don't we watch a movie to pass time?" I nodded in agreement.
We exited my room and went to the living room. I put in Twilight, I made my over to Sarah and plopped down next to her on the couch.
.

I felt someone nudge my shoulder hard. I groaned and opened my eyes. I looked over to see Sarah, grinning like a mad man.
"What.."
She shoved my phone in my face. "Look who DM'd you!"
I took the phone from her hand and glanced at the screen. My eyes widen as I ready the name across the screen.
