~To reach the stars~

As I look at the judges from the floor, waiting to begin the auditions that could make or break my life. Many people have told me I have the gift of being to dance and choreograph music which looks like a broadway hit. The music started at the intro, I didn't pick it my best friend Brianna did. She picked daydreamin' by Lupe Fiasco; she said it would show them my great taste in music as well as dancing.

It's a lyrical dance which is very expressive and shows how well you can feel the music and interpret how you feel. As my cue approaches I can feel the sweat dripping down my arms and my hands are shaking; it probably looks like I am having a seizure on the floor. I miss my cue and look over at the judges who are smirking at me like the failure I know I am. I just lie there the memories flooding back of the pain and hurt that brought me to making a fool out of myself in front of the world famous Julliard judges. They run this city and will make sure the biggest broadway shows and theatre groups will laugh and turn away your name.


Someone shook me.

"Wake up Belle!".

I felt a few light slaps on my face. I opened my eyes, Brianna.

"Finally, I am going to work, i'll call you around three okay, I won't answer before then if you call".

I yawned "alright".

She smiled "Love you".

"Mhmm" I grunted.

She has been my best friend since the first grade, when I was the new little girl and no one would share their crayons. She's very defensive over me because, it's a long story so to make it short lets just say I've been taken advantage of more than one time in the past. She's been with me forever but unlike me she gave up on her career as a dancer because she wanted to make "dough" or "bank" as she puts it. All i know is that her knew job is at a club which explains why she works really late hours and dresses like a hooker. I mean she can work it let me tell you i'm liking the black one shoulder mini dress cutoff myself, and the shoes were adorable, but lately she gets really defensive when I bring up work.

Like a simple question like what do you do there? gets me... At least I make money. She also hasn't told me the name of the club but I know it's somewhere on fifth and I want to say 32nd ish. I also wanted to go to this hot club but apparently its high security and you have to be a celebrity to get in. Oh I know! I'll pretend Brianna forgot her dinner and sneak into the club then I can see the club and plus I haven't been out in weeks,  girls just wanna have fun, right?
