Ogbanje had woken up very early that morning before the cock crow and was going about her house chores when Ikemefuna made his appearance known to Ogbanje when she was about going to the stream to fetch water they would use for the day.
She was surprise when she saw Ikemefuna standing beside their bamboo gate as if he had been there for long.
“You again”, Ogbanje began harshly at Ikemefuna. “What is it, have I not warned to stay away from me eh?. So what are you looking for in my father’s compound with your two left legs”. Ogbanje added angrily at Ikemefuna who stood transfixed on the spot staring lovely at Ogbanje.
Ikemefuna wasn’t move by her insult or her tone of harsh way, in fact, he loved this side of her and fell deeply in love with her the more.
“So can’t I no longer see my Ada as I pleased. I have been standing here for a very long time watching you and I have come to realise that you are not only beautiful but hardworking. There and then I know deep within me that I have grown to love you so much that if I don’t have you no one else will”. Ikemefuna answered Ogbanje in a very cheerful way.
“I can see you woke up by the wrong side of your bed this morning to utter such rubbish omitting out from that stupid mouth of yours but I will pretend that I did not hear anything”. Ogbanje said rudely to him and made as if to pass him with her Udu (Earthen pot) when Ikemefuna quickly stretch out one of his hands and grab hold of Ogbanje hand. He roughly drew Ogbanje closer to him and forcefully kissed her against her wish.
Ogbanje who was not expecting that move from him was throw off balance when Ikemefuna kissed her.
A round of slap echoed around them and Ikemefuna suddenly released his hand to rub his left cheeks that seemed so hot. He wasn’t expecting that from her and so was surprise when she slapped him with a full force.
Ogbanje started throwing out some spit from her mouth as she placed her pot beside her waist and uses one of her hand to clean her lips where Ikemefuna has kissed.
“This should be the first and last time you would do such a thing like that again. Next time it would be your balls I will kick to prevent you from having children, Anuofia”. Ogbanje told Ikemefuna in a very angry tone.
But to her surprise Ikemefuna laughed out to her ranting.
“You keep surprising me Ada and I keep on loving you the more, can’t you see we are made for each other. I love you so much Ada, at least find it in your heart to love me the way I do to you. I can do anything for you Ada, anything, all I ask is for your love”.
“And like I have told you earlier on that you woke up from the wrong side of your bed this morning. As you can see I have other things to do this morning and I am doing one right now”. Ogbanje said not moved by his words and turned to leave for the stream when Ikemefuna once again grabbed hold of her from behind, immobile her two hands and pressed her hard against his chest. Her Udu fell off from her and miraculously not break.
Ogbanje started struggling against his hold and uses one of her legs to hit Ikemefuna’s manhood. The hit was so hard but still Ikemefuna wouldn’t let go. He placed his head on the shoulder blade of Ogbanje and kissed it breathing in her scent. With his face he nuzzle at her cheeks in a tender way. Ogbanje ceased in her struggling once she found out none of what she was doing was affecting Ikemefuna.
“I won’t do anything against your wish Ada but be rest assured that I might change my mind. Don’t think I don’t know about your stupid lover Ebuka and don’t also think I don’t know who he really is”. Ikemefuna suddenly told Ogbanje against her ears.
“What are you insinuating?” Ogbanje asked trying not to be surprised at his sudden outburst.
“Don’t pretend as if you don’t know what I am getting at. I know you know who I am. Your lover must have told you my real nature. But whatever he told about me are all lies Alaolisa, right from the day one I had set my eyes on you you’ve have become mine”. Ikemefuna told Ogbanje in a lovely way caressing her neck with his mouth
With a strength that Ogbanje didn’t know she has she grab hold one of the hands of Ikemefuna and flung him off her with inhuman strength. She quickly pick up her pot.
Ikemefuna managed to landed on his feet a few feet away from Ogbanje. He wore a look of surprise on his face at what Ogbanje just did to him, it was an unexpected move. She took him by surprise.
Ogbanje smirked at him at his bewildered face he was making.
“This should be as a warning to you Ikemefuna or whatever your name is because next time you tried such a thing to me, I will make sure you regret ever knowing me rubbish”. Ogbanje hissed and hurriedly left him going towards the road that leads to their village stream.
Ikemefuna smiled to himself. She is as strong as she was in her former life. Alaolisa will become his.
“Your stubbornness makes me love you the more. I like challenges, even Amadioha himself knows that”. Ikemefuna said and disappeared.
Uhammiri paced around in her dark cave as she cleverly draft out a plan. Adaku couldn’t defeat her step sister because of a stupid power she possesses. She would make sure she makes Ogbanje suffered so much that Ogbanje would be begging for death.
“What kind of powers does she think she has that would make my mother not to defeat her” . Uhammiri said to herself. Ogbanje had mysteriously survived after the deaths of her siblings. But this time her death would be so easy.
She would soon know what powers Ogbanje possesses but first she has to come down to live with them. That would be the plan one.
Ogbanje had better be ready for her.
“My dear husband, please I have a request to make and it would so gladly my heart If you support me in it”. Adaku began softly that night has they had earlier on finished their supper and everyone had gone to bed. Okoro had came to Adaku’s hut to quench his growing groin like he normally did and were laying on her bamboo bed when Adaku brought out the topic.
“And what can that be Adaku, if it is within my powers and a good cause, then I will grant your request”. Okoro told his wife.
“Well it is nothing much my dear husband. You know when you got married to Ogbanje’s mother….”
“Have I not warned you to stop calling my Ada, the Ada of this family that name? Adaku this should be the first and last you will refer Ada as Ogbanje”. Okoro warned Adaku angrily.
“I am so sorry my dear husband it fell out of my mouth by mistake”. Adaku said pretending to be crying.
Okoro anger faded once he saw the tears on Adaku’s eyes.
“Is okay. You of all people should know I don’t like it when Ada is being called that name. E be zina- Don’t cry”. Okoro said lovely to his wife. “You where about telling me something my heart”. Okoro added the words made Adaku so happy within her.
“As I was saying before, when you got married to your first and now dead wife I left you angrily”.
“Yes, how would I not remember, you left that same day. I searched for you everywhere but couldn’t find you”. Okoro said softly loosing Adaku’s wrapper.
“Well, I went to stay with my great grandmother mother”.
“Okay, I see no crime in that but what has that got to do with what you’d want to tell me”. Okoro asked Adaku.
“While staying with her I made a friend amongst my great grandmother people. She was a widow. I just heard recently that my friend is dead and her only daughter and child is homeless. After the death of my friend her husband brothers took everything away from the child my friend left behind. Why I am telling you is to plead with you and request that her daughter stays here for the time being. Please dim mu- my husband let her come because I had given her my words that you will agree to it”. Adaku said in a pleading tone to Okoro.
Okoro hands stopped his movement on Adaku’s shoulder as he placed his hands on his legs. He was in a deep thought.
Adaku’s fingers started caressing Okoro’s hard chest.
“But how can you make such a decision without my consent. How can you promise a girl, some one I had yet to meet, that I would permit her to stay With us”. Okoro said in not so happy voice
“I know that my husband and that is why I am begging you to accommodate her. You see her late mother was very good to me. She treated me like I was her own sister. She healed my broken heart and encouraged me to wait for you that one day we shall be together. I can not let my best friend daughter roamed about in that village. Please my dear husband think about it”.
Okoro heaved out a sigh. “I have heard you, you may bring the girl any day that pleases you but know If at all she hurts any of my children you and her would have yourself to blame. I hope you don’t regret bringing in this stranger”. Okoro said finally as Adaku leapt for joy.
“I won’t regret one bit”. Adaku said in all smiles.
“Nne edewooo- Mama I greet you”. Ebuka greated Adaku when he saw her with a beautiful young lady. His Alaolisa age mate perhaps. He was on his way home from the farm that hot afternoon when he saw Adaku and the strange beautiful lady beside her. His younger brother, Emenike, was carrying a basket full of yams. He also greeted Adaku and the lady.
“My son how are you”. Adaku answered his greeting with a forceful smile.
“I am fine mama, I hope there is no problem?” Ebuka asked his eyes couldn’t leave the strange beautiful lady. Something seemed odd about her, he couldn’t place his finger on it.
The strange lady eyes were on him also.
“Everything is fine Ebuka, how is your mother”.
“She is fine. Nne I better be on my way now. Kelee ezinụlọ gị niile maka m- Greet all your family for me o”. So saying Ebuka left them.
“Who is he?” Uhammiri asked once Ebuka and his brother were out of spot.
“Well that is the Ebuka I told you about. The one you have to kill to get through Ogbanje”. Adaku explained.
“He is the Ebuka”, Uhammiri mused “Hmm, I won’t kill him then”. Uhammiri said afterwards.
Adaku was astonish at what she said and looked at Uhammiri in bewildered.
“And why is that if I may ask, don’t tell me you can’t kill a mere human being Ogbanje is always protecting”. Adaku said.
“It is not that Adaku”.
“Then what is it”. Adaku protested.
“I am attracted to him Adaku. I want to make that young handsome man my husband”. Uhammiri replied in all seriousness.

I pulled my car to a halt in front of a white mansion.
I stared at the map on my iPod and glanced at the white mansion.
I wore a red wig over my brown golden hair, picked my mask and wore it over my face before stepping out of the car holding a pistol.
My eyes swiftly scanned the entire building and i walked towards the locked gate.
That doesn’t stop me from going in though.
I smiled and began climbing the wall with expertise, I’ve climbed bigger mansions than this!
I jumped into the balcony without making a sound.
I turned and carefully scanned the area.
I tried the door knob with my gloved hand and found it locked.
I twitched my nose and produced a skeleton key from the pocket of my ninja outfit.
I slid the key into the lock and turned it, it opened immediately and i quickly entered the house.
I met the well furnished living room empty .
➡️Mia what’s up?” Boss asked through the ear connection.
“Modus operandi (mode of operation)” I whispered back before disconnecting.
I walked into the middle of the living room and saw a narrow passage,i moved towards it.
There are three doors on the left,two on the right,and one at the end of the passage facing me.
I walked towards the one at the end of the passage and kicked it open with my boots.
I barged into the room and saw the couple disengage from their love making, staring at me in fear.
I chuckled “That’ll be the last sex you’ll both have,you can continue in heaven” I said and opened fire on my pistol.
I shot them twice each on their heads and smirked as their brains splattered across the bed’s headboard with blood covering their bedside lamp.
I hurried back to the balcony,and brought out a thick rope which is always connected beneath my boot.
I attached it down to the gate and also clipped it to the balcony edge.
I slide down using the rope as support.
My feet landed on the ground and i quickly disconnected the rope.
I wrapped it firmly in my hands and barged back to my car.
I unlocked it and looked around again.
I entered and shut the door.
I removed my wig and mask,dumped the pistol at the backseat and then glanced at my reflection in the rear view mirror,i adjusted my hair.
I picked my face cap and pulled it over my hair before turning on the ignition.
“Another mission accomplished” I muttered with a smile before speeding away into the night.

★★ JUNE ★★
My heart skipped a beat as Erick hugged me but I maintained my balance and rested my chin on his shoulder.
I could get used to this, this warmth, and comfort. My hands were slowly starting to rise up and hug him back but Augie’s happy voice ruined the moment.
“Erick!!!” he called happily, he and Ella running up to meet him, Erick let’s go of me and with a smile he walked passed me to meet my baby brother and his Ex dog.
I closed the door with a sigh and turned to the happy reunion in front of my eyes.
The door to my grandma’s room opened and of course, my grandma walked out.
“oh, Erick!” she exclaimed
“grandma!” Erick smiled and walked up to her to give her a hug.
“is it just me or you look more younger and prettier” Erick said and my grandma laughed hysterically pulling his cheeks.
“you’ll never change”.
“and why in the world, would I change?” Erick smiled.
“so what should I get you! Water? Juice—
“grandma, am fine and I also ate like a king during dinner, so it’s okay” Erick smiled and my grandma smiled.
My family surrounded Erick and bombered him with different kind of questions.
My grandma asking him about his new life, and Augie at the same time asking him why he dyed his hair blue and Ella barking and jumping around Erick asking him questions of her own, that no one understands.
I just sat still and watched Erick bring laughter to the whole house and I laughed too when he talked something funny, I kind of missed this atmosphere, I missed the days when dinner would be fun because Erick was there and I also missed the days chores became fun cause he was still there too.. He is such an influence.
Finally Augie fell asleep and Ella fell asleep on his stomach, wrapping her small body to fit his small body.
Maltese dogs are just so small
My grandma retired to her room. Wishing us goodnight and I sighed as I slowly carried Ella from my baby brother’s stomach.
I was about to carry Augie up but Erick stopped me.
“it’s fine” I tell him.. “it’s not like it’s the first time I’ll be taking his sleeping body to bed”.
“still, you’re a girl and I’m a guy watching you carry him will just make me a complete useless Person” Erick said and picked up Augie carefully placing him on his shoulder.
I picked Ella up and trailed behind Erick as he walked to my room, the door was open. So we just walked in and I closed the door after dropping Ella on her doggy bed.
Augie was placed on his bed by Erick while I covered his body with the thick blanket.
“whoa” Erick said.
“what?” I asked as I watched him look at sleeping Augie.
“he looks so much like you!” he blurted and I laughed.
“his my brother you idiot! How can we not look alike” I rolled my eyes.
“but you know June, this feels weird” Erick whispered with a smile and he bit his bottom lip still smiling.
“what, feels weird?” I asked.
“it’s like we’re putting our ‘son’ off to bed” Erick said and I rolled my eyes and walked away from him.
“you’re unbelievable” I said as I got on my own bed and rummage through my drawer for a rubber band.
“what?. I am actually making a point, we both look like two young parents” Erick said walking up to me.
“sometimes you say the most stupidest thing ever” I huffed pushing the strands of hair in front of my face to go with my sudden pony tail.
“and sometimes, the most stupidest thing may be the most meaningful thing” Erick said as he got on my bed.
“hey take off your shoes” I warned him.
“what? It’s not like I’m sitting with my feet” he scoffed.
“I don’t care, take it off” I said and he sighed and pushed his shoes off his legs leaving a pair of black stockings on his feet.
“happy?” he mocked
“more than you think” I smiled.
He let out a small sigh and laid on the bed, removing my hands on my thigh, he laid his head on my thighs, and placed my hands on his hair.
“what are you—
“can you please not complain and just let me stay like this for a while” he said with his eyes closed and my vocal chords clogged immediately.
We both remained quiet and my hands didn’t move from his hair, the air was cool and fine minutes ago but now, it seems hot and I feel like I’m gonna burst any minute.
“say something” Erick said, his eyes still closed. “I hate silence”.
“wh–what do you want me to say?” I stutter.
“anything, you can sing if you want to.”
“no, I think I’ve had enough singing today,” I said and his eyes fluttered opened and it was staring at mine and I don’t know how foolish I’ve become that my eyes suddenly adverted to his lips but I quickly shifted them back to his eyes.
“what was that?” he asked with a teasing smile.
“what was what?” I asked looking away.
“I saw you, why did you look at my lips Like that?” he asked, and even though I’m not looking at him I know he’s holding the most teasing smile he could produce.
“I–I–i did not–
“do not lie to me June, I saw you” he interrupted me and sat up.
“you totally wanted to–
“can you just shut up” I yelled and he laughed, shook his head negatively and laid back on the bed with his hair on my thigh.
“June.” he called.
“what?” I barked.
“can you cool it, I was just joking okay” he laughed.
“well have I told you I never find your jokes funny” I asked looking down at him sternly.
“you wouldn’t cause my jokes always comes out as a joke and half the truth” he said and I rolled my eyes.
He breathed out a small sigh. While I looked away…
This feels weirdly comfotable, even though it shouldn’t. I am actually enjoying Erick’s company…
“have you… Dated a guy before?” his voice echoed.
Why Is he suddenly asking “this” kind of question.
“why are you asking?”
“I don’t know…” he shrugged on my legs.
“you’re kind of acting like someone who got her heart broken big time” he said and I smiled.
“yeah, I did got my heart broken once!” I said and slowly looked down at him to see his reaction and he was staring straight at me, but he suddenly stood up.
“really?” he asked as he adjusted a little closer to me.
“yeah.” I said looking away to smile at the wall.
“well that explains why you’re like this.”
“like what?” I snapped.
“nothing” he replied with a grin “so tell me June, this guy that broke your heart, how did it start and how did it end”.
“well see I was in the Nineth grade when that happened” I said with a nod
“okay I’m all ears.” Erick smiled.
“you want me to narrate the whole story to you?” I asked.
“yep” he replied making the “p” pop.
Time for a whole story of lies.
“okay so there’s this guy Jus.. John… No.. Jared… Yes Jared! He’s tall—
“taller than me?” Erick caught me off with a smile.
“he’s– he’s height is just like yours”. I said and Erick nod.
“he has blonde hair, brown eyes, he’s a little bit slender, he’s got perfect nose and amazing lips he also has this smile that makes your heart melt and gosh he’s a smile addict—
“wait! Why do I feel like you’re talking about me?” Erick said and I glowered at him.
“Shut up I’m taking about John this is about John”. I yelled.
“but I thought you said his name was Jared?”
“I did?” God I am so bad at lying
“yeah,, wait are you making this all up?”
“what! No way he’s name is Jared and he’s got a baby brother names John, their names get me confused sometimes” I said with a nervous laugh “so Jared was the captain of the football club then and gosh all the girls loved him cause you knows, he’s our handsome Jared and we always win whenever there’s a football game and whenever he’s around, so luckily out of all the whole girls in school he chose me!” I said and bat my lashes dramatically.
“I don’t see a reason for him not to” Erick said and I blushed.
“anyways… He told me he liked me and I liked him too and we started to go out” I paused thinking of another lie.
“okay, why or how did he break your heart?” Erick asked inquisitively.
“he uhm… He… He stole… My pen and lied about… It, and then we broke up” I said and bit my lip hard, I am terrible at lies!.
“what? That is one cliché story! How can you guys break up because of a stupid pen, are you lying to me??” he asked narrowing his eyes.
“I am not! And did I say pen, that’s what actually happened to his brother, I caught him kissing another girl and he lied about it when I tried to confront him about it” I said and the look Erick gave me made me gulped hard.
“you’re lying” Erick breathed.
“and why would I?”
“cause somehow you think this is fun, telling me about some guy who you described as me and how he broke your heart by stealing your pen then kissing a girl”. I giggled a little when I listened to my story in my head and he grabbed my hand.
“okay, maybe, somehow I am making up stories or so but it doesn’t matter” I rolled my eyes.
“it does matter cause you’re keeping your heart isolated and it’s…” he sighed…
“you know I really like you June and–
“can we not talk about this now Erick” I said slipping my hand away from his and standing up.
“if not now, then when?” he asked standing up.
“I don’t know—but can we please not talk about it now?” I said folding my hand, I’m suddenly feeling cold.
“you always do this, pushing me away or shunning me whenever I talk about my feelings with you, at least am honest and proud about it, how long do I have to wait?” he asked and I bit my lips and looked up at him.
“a little longer” I mumbled and I moved back a little cause he moved closer to me.
He remained quiet for a while and so did I. . .
Finally I heard his sigh and “fine” after that.
“I’ll wait! You don’t know but I’m pretty good at it” he said and I looked up at him to see his slightly disappointed face.
His phone suddenly ring and he brought it out from his pocket, he rolled his eyes and shoved it back in his pocket.
“I have to go” he announced
“oh!” I said and looked away,
Good… For me.
“I’ll escort you to the door” I said but he shook his head negatively.
“don’t! You might not like what I might do and besides, you might not come back too” he said calmly and my eyebrows flew up.
What is this dude saying, Just by escorting him to the door, I might not return home??.
“so… Uhm… Goodnight?” I shrugged
“no… It’s actually a bad night” he said making me flinch.
I’m sorry Erick I don’t know why I’m being like this towards you, I wanted to say so badly but I couldn’t bring myself too.
What is wrong with me.
He suddenly moved closer and gave me one of his comforting hugs,
and I hugged him back.
He said nothing as he let’s go of me and I couldn’t even look at him as he walked towards the door and opened it and walked out.
He did it!
That night I couldn’t sleep, I kept tossing and turning like never before,
My heart is still working and I know that… And I do know I like Erick but I don’t know, I don’t know what to even think.
I screamed in my pillow loudly and turned on my night light,
I hate this!!! Not being able to sleep.
I decided to listen to music, maybe it’ll help me fall asleep. But when I tried it, it didn’t work I just sang along and it’s Maria Li’s song, how can I not sing along.
I haven’t watched Erick’s video yet. I smiled at the recall of that, I head straight to YouTube, it’s been years since I’ve been to the Internet. Aside watching or downloading Maria Li’s song. I haven’t done anything.
I searched the name Erick and Erick-J suddenly popped on the search list and my eyes widen immediately. I tapped on the name and it took me to his music video.
“8.9million views” I gasped as I clicked on watch to watch the video.
After re-watching Erick’s music video for the fifth time I was starting to feel a bit sleepy, but I couldn’t help the smile that made my lips stretch so widely as I watched as Erick gave the camera a breath taking gaze as the video ended.
This guy likes me! I thought as I dropped my phone on my drawer,
But what the hell is holding me back?!! I thought, thinking about that my eyes slowly starts to close and before I knew it, I fell asleep
The rays of sunlight shone on my face and the amazing smell of burnt crust and butter filled my nostrils and I smiled and slowly opened my eyes.
It was twelve pm when I looked at the time and I slowly walked to the bathroom to brush my teeth.
As I brushed my teeth, I looked at myself in the wall mirror,
What the hell did Erick sees in me. I held my brush with my teeth and touched my face, I examined my huge round eyes and sighed, my eyes moved down to my lips, I’ve always wanted full lips but I got thin ones instead.
I stopped examining myself and continued to brush my teeth.
The house seemed quiet, I’ve eaten breakfast but still I feel empty, sitting outside staring at the empty street with Ella jumping around my leg.
“go play by yourself Ella. I’m not in the mood to play with you” I said and she let out a pitiful yelp.
“you just have to wait till Augie’s back from school”. I said and she suddenly jumped at the mention of Augie and ran inside.
I sighed as I stared at the blank sky, my chest feels heavy and I don’t know why.
Actually… I do know why..
I suddenly head inside and putting on my sandals, I yelled from the door.
“grandma, I’ll be back”.
“where are you going?” she yelled from inside.
“uhhh… To Erick’s?” I said truthfully
“okay be back before dinner” she announced
I hurried down the stairs of our building and the wind took over my hair. Today’s supposed to be my resting day for yesterday’s stress, but no! This is more important.

Erick smiled at me and goodness his blue hair was to die for. And Daniel’s gone pink, which suit him too.
“oh my God” Grace said standing up.
“D-Daniel..” she stutter.. “E-Erick”.
Daniel smiled at her and Cassie quickly stood up,
“Daniel, I am your biggest fan and… ” she sighed breathlessly giving both of them a loving look.
“and you, and I just love the both of you”. Cassie said and Grace nodded.
“well that’s great.. cause we love you guys too” Daniel said giving them a small smile.
“oh if it isn’t Travel” Erick said smiling.
“it’s Travis”. Travis snapped.
“yeah, whatever” Erick smiled and walked up to me.
“hey” I said with a smile and he held my hand making me stand up.
The number of eyes staring at us made me gulped down and I had to avoid their eyes and look at Erick.
“h-happy debut’s day” I said and he laughed.
“that’s not a thing” he said.
“sorry… I’m just out of words” I said lowly.
“you look beautiful” he said and grace coughed and held myself not to glance at her and give her a glare. “thanks”.. I beamed.
“you’re all getting ready for the competition right?” Erick asked and I nod.
“luckily, I found a pen in my bag, Daniel can I have your autograph, I missed your fan signing event” Cassie said and Daniel smiled.”sure” and took the pen from her.
“where would you like me to sign?” Daniel asked.
“on my wrist” Cassie replied immediately.
Daniel took her wrist and grace yelped. While Erick turned back to me “I missed you, it was kind of stressful and bored without you there”.
“oh” I said my cheeks heating up. I can’t help myself when he’s being like this
“And I also–
His buzzing phone interrupted him from finishing his words, and he sighed and he read whatever was on his screen.
“dang it!” he muttered as he dropped his phone back in his pocket. “I have to go, these days I’m gonna be a lot scarcer than ever because of my debut” he sighed and pushed his hair back.
“your hair. . .” I said
“what is it bad?” he rushed his words
“no! it’s beautiful and so is Daniel’s” I smiled and glanced at Daniel to see him crowded by Grace and Cassie.
“I asked for myself not for Daniel too, you could have just complimented me alone”
“can you not be a jealous freak!” I rolled my eyes and he laughed.
“I’ll try, anyways I have to go I’ll see you when heavens tell us too” he said and gave a charming smile.
“okay,” I laughed.
He let’s go of my hand and sighed tiredly looking at me.
“what?” I asked.
“i-i… I could have kissed you but I’ll ruin your makeover” he said.
°It doesn’t matter° I wanted to say but good thing I stopped myself cause I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
I stopped talking cause I keep saying “I” which means I don’t know what to say, even if I really do.
“anyways, I’ll see you real soon” he said, smiled and walked up to Daniel, Grace and Cassie asked for Erick’s autograph and he gave them too.
“don’t you want one?” Erick asked Travis, referring to their autographs
“I’m good” Travis replied sternly.
“okay… Here’s your pen” Erick handed Cassie her pen.
“good luck to you all” Erick said.
“thanks” Grace grinned and Erick glance at me before he and Daniel walked out.
“today is the most happiest day of my life” Cassie smiled sitting back on her chair.
“yeah I almost cried” Grace added.
“tch” Travis scoffed.
“oh and Travis, have you met Daniel and Erick before?” Cassie asked.
“they would have probably have, cause how would they know his name” Grace said
“I’ve met them and they hate me, you could have heard Erick called me Travel” Travis said and he turned to me while I gave him an apologizing look.
Cassie suddenly laughed hysterically and we all turned to her.
“Travel? Wow that’s more convenient than Travis” she said while Travis rolled his eyes.
“but I have to say this June! I’m jealous, you’re dating a celebrity and he’s also best friend with the king of pop and wow… You’re lucky” Grace said whimsically and I smiled briefly.
The door opened and our stylists walked inside with our clothes.
“wow…” grace beamed as she gazed at the clothes happily, the clothes were all purple and black and it was shiny and sparkly like that of a clothes worn at disco balls.
“here”. One of the stylist said and gave Travis his clothes, And ours was handed to us.
“you! You can change in here” one of the stylist said and moved Travis to a door, and no one knew there was a door there cause there was no knob, the door just rhymed with the wall.
We were all moved to a small dressing room and I don’t know if anyone’s room is as tiny as mine cause mine’s suffocating.
I quickly changed into the black crop top and sparkly purple bum short, the shorts surprisingly came with purple sparkly suspenders and after bracing it up, I slipped the black shoes on which has sparkly shoe laces and lastly put on the sparkly purple hand gloves that came with the clothes.
I walked out of the small room and met Travis who was already dressed in a black pants, a black shirt and a sparkly blazer on top of the shirt. Cassie came out next and hers was a purple sparkly short jumpsuit with a black belly belt around her waist. Grace came out last and hers was a simple armless purple crop top and black trousers with purple sparkly belt and the same shoes as mine.
We heard noises coming from outside and one of the stylist said to us “our job here is done and everyone’s outside you guys need to go”.
We all walked out after the stylist who went their own way. And I was surprised to see every group looking fabulous with their group colour code. And everyone wearing sparkly outfits, ours were purple and the first group were green, the third group were blue and the last group were orange.
We all gathered together cause we were all told to and suddenly four judges walked in, two male two females, all wearing thick red suits and none of them smiling.
Why do they always give us mean looking judges.
The judges moved to the four chairs facing the stage and they all sat down.
A woman walked up to the stage with a smile and a microphone in her hand.
“um… Hi everyone.” she said and the curious eyes made her smile again and continued, “you all know that during your last round, you were told that this round you’re all going to perform three times before entering the next round, but guess what! Due to some stuff going on in the industry that rule has been terminated, you get to the next round with just this performance, so you all should do your best with this performance and reach for the stars!!!” the woman said and everyone clapped. While she walked down the stage.
The first group were called on stage the song they chose got everyone’s body moving to the beat,
“I don’t know what song this is, but this is pretty good” Cassie said.
“guys is it just me or are these clothes tight and suffocating” Grace said and fanned herself with her hand.
“it’s not! It’s fabulous” Cassie said.
I glance at Grace and she looked scared as she watched the first group display their awesome dance moves.
“are you nervous?” I asked Grace as I stood beside her.
“no!” she scoffed. (this story is written by Ruthie Lee)
“you don’t have to lie, I know you are and honestly I am too” I said and she breathed out a sigh of relief. “I am so nervous I feel like crying” Grace stated and Travis turned to her, placing his hands on her shoulder.
“you don’t have to be Grace, just act like you’re still in dance class and just let your body go with the music okay, we’re all human here don’t act like someone’s going to slaughter you for not performing well, and let me tell you nervousness ruins everything, so just get rid of your nervousness and Let’s blow everyone’s mind and I believe we have the best dance moves and amazing song to go with, so Grace, I don’t see any reason for you to be nervous” Travis expound and Grace pulled him in a hug.
“thanks Travis” she muttered
“you’re welcome” he said as he hugged her back.
We watched the first group dance together and Travis hand laid on Grace’s shoulder the whole time, he was keeping her calm the whole time and she felt comfortable under his under his arm and rested her head on his shoulder.
Cassie kept looking at them and I kept looking at her looking at them without her knowing .
Finally the first group ended their performance and everyone clapped.
“remember guys, Let’s give our best!” Travis stated strongly as our group name were being called.
We ended our performance with a catchy pose and everyone clapped.
“wow that was magical” Grace said happily, as we all walked down to the crowd.
We all did great no one became the best dancer when we got on stage cause everyone did their best in singing and dancing, the lyrics giving to Grace was strong and she did a pretty good job drawing the song and dancing at the same time. And I think getting that part perfectly is making her happy
“see I told you there’s nothing to worry about” Travis said and she flashed him a smile.
Cassie rolled her eyes at that I started to wonder what was wrong with her.
A woman came and handed us bottled water and everyone chugged down the whole thing, I can’t believe I’ll be so thirsty to ask for another bottle.
The next group chose a slow song and everyone giggled to how slow and funny the dance looked and oh their poor souls, the judges are looking pretty angry and I don’t think they’re going to stay. It’s not their fault, it’s their dance teachers and I am so glad we got Justin.
The last group performed well but I still think we gave the best performance, and after the last group ended their dance everyone were called on stage and we all stood separately, but side by side with our group members.
“group D. Move forward” one of the female judge with the meanest face said and the first group moved forward.
“you guys were wonderful, but I’ll take back my “ful” cause you guys weren’t completely wonderful, you with the tiny waist, your body’s flexible but doesn’t go with your voice while you dance, and you with the gloves, your voice is amazing and so is your dance steps but you don’t have confidence in you and that sucks. You, the only boy in the group, you’re the worst, whatever vibe the group had you ruined it with your frozen body and trembling voice, you suck!” the judge said minding her foul words and everyone gasped.
“and lastly you, you did just perfect, so you and you, you’re out and you and you are in” the female judge said and everyone watched as the girl with the tiny waist and the boy with the frozen body walked down the stage sadly, leaving the two girls to feel happy for themselves.
“group A. Move forward” the room echoed with that and my heart skipped a beat as we moved forward.
The woman sighed and shook her head negatively while Grace starts to tremble.
“you’re all wonderful, and I’m leaving my ful thus time”.
“you with the blonde hair” the woman said to Cassie “you’re not so good with dancing but you have a nice voice and you keep up and there’s so much confidence in you and that’s the first thing a super star needs, confidence! So congratulations
She made it.
“you” the woman said to Travis and he kind of flinched, “your voice isn’t that great, but I’ll put it in the list of okay, but the way your body moves with the beat, made me wish I was teenager and you carry this catchy aura that makes someone smile seeing you dance, you were wonderFUL young man and I’m not taking my ful this time, congratulations
“and you” dang it! it’s my turn, can she stop referring to us as “YOU” it’s scary.
“you have a nice voice and a flexible body, you’re full with passion and you smile while you dance, and just everything a super star needs, congratulation”
I made it!!!! I screamed happily in me,
I cannot believe I did it.
“and you!” the woman said to Grace and she held her breath, holding my hand.
“you were not so good, but honey people like you who are not-so-good are the best and I mean it, there’s a part where the dance part became harder and the song note became higher, I thought you’d be a vibe killer and destroy your group by singing that part badly and dancing stupidly, but sweetie you blew my mind when you dance and drew the song like it was nothing, your singing talent Is to die for, so dear congratulation!
“we all did it” Travis said as we all walked to the back stage
“yeah, I cannot believe it” I said and he laughed.
“me too, I was so scared I almost peed on stage” Grace said and we all laughed.
The third group only the boy made it and the last group, three of them made it, making us a complete ten.
We were giving speeches on how and where our next performance will be taking place, and this time around they’re going to be just four winners and that was sad cause anyways one or two of us are going to make it and the rest is going to loose. I wish we could all make it but it’s not possible…
That day after sharing happiness with my groupies I made my journey home, inside the bus I listened carefully to the bus radio as the broadcaster talked about out certain things and then moved to celebrities.
«“and now with this news coming live, DH industry. One of the biggest music entertainment in Mahnline, announced a new star’s debut, who goes by the name Erick-J, Erick-J debut was released at 6:00am today, ten hours ago and grossing 8million views in just ten hours and that is mind blowing cause it is the fas—
I smiled as I got down the bus, look at Erick being adored, and he wanted to throw all that away.
I got home and I met my grandma eating dinner with Augie and I happily joined them, I told my grandma about the competition and how everything went and she happily listened as I spilled the whole story to her.
It was nighttime and I just finished doing the dishes about to go to my room to take a long lasting nap, when a soft knock landed on the door, I yawned softly and walked to the door, wondering who it could be.
I opened the door and he smiled showing his complete white teeth.
“what are you doing here?” I said can’t help my smile
“are you gonna let me in or ask me more questions till I freeze out here and die” Erick said and I rolled my eyes and opened the door wider for him to walk in but instead he hugged me.
