I can’t believe you signed the contract!” Emilio screamed at Alexis, “Did you even read it?! Did you read how they want to change your whole image! Your name! Where you come from! They’re going to control you Ali! And once they’re done with you they’ll easily toss you aside.”

Emilio was right, Alexis knew what he had just said was true but she had been poor all her life that that was a chance she was willing to take, “Why are you yelling at me? You don’t think I’ve read the contract. I stayed up for the past week rereading it! Over and over again! It’s a risk I’m willing to take. I’m doing this for us Emi. Don’t you wanna move out of this shithole? I wanna live in Beverly Hills, shop on Rodeo Dr. If I didn’t think it would benefit you and I do you think I’d have signed it?”

You’re being selfish Alexis. Let me make something clear. If you for one fucking second think I'm going to be apart of this then you're a fucking idiot! I think you're making the biggest mistake of your life. You're throwing everything away for 15 seconds of fame. What's gonna happen if your music doesn't sell!?" Alexis hadn't thought of that part. She thought that her label would just set her up with some instant track hits, she was hoping they would. She didn't want to be the next Carly Rae Jepsen, a one hit wonder. She was hoping for a long career like Britney Spears or Rihanna. "It will sell! My label assured me that I'd be recording music that would sell very well and would do great on the charts!" That was a lie but she didn't wanna give Emilio the satisfaction of being right. "I'm telling you right now Alexis, if you go to Los Angeles then you'll be traveling there alone because once you set foot on that plane you and I are done! You hear me!?"

As much as it hurt Alexis to lose Emilio her desire to pursue a career in the music industry was stronger. "Go ahead and leave, see if I care. You'd just be holding me back anyways." Holding back tears Alexis put on a brave face and walked towards the bathroom, she couldn't be in the room if it meant having to see the love of her life walk out on of her life.

Locking herself in the bathroom she turned the shower on as she heard the front door slam, tears running down her cheeks Alexis broke down on the bathroom floor. Crying with no control she felt the weight of the world on top of her. All she wanted at this point was to be in the arms of Emilio, but he had just walked out on their future. Was fame really worth all this?
