"Andre..." I sigh, tugging his sleeve. "Tori, I cant write you a new song, I have to take my grandma to get laser eye surgery." He says. I need a new song for the Winter Bash. Its this new thing we came up with where we have a little competition & a dance in one."Andre, why are you getting your grandma. Never mind." I dont honestly want to know. Someone taps my shoulder & I turn around. Its a girl with brown hair & big blue eyes. I guess shes about 13 or 14. "Yes?" I smile. "Um... Have you seen Jade West?" She asks. I look at her, confused. Why would an innocent girl want to talk to Jade? "Shes over there by the soda machine with Beck..." I point towards them. "Jade, can I talk to you?" She goes over to her. Jades eyes widen. "Not now..." I hear Jade mutter. "Pleaseeeee." The girl says. "Jade, do you know this girl?" Beck asks. "Nope, never seen her in my life." Jade tries to run away but I grab her bag. "My name is Maddie West, Im Jades little sister." She grins.
"Jade,whats up?" I ask, hopefully as she comes back into the jail cell. "Maddies bailing us out..."She frowns. "Yayyyy!" Cat shouts. But Jade doesnt seem as happy. "Whats wrong?" I ask. "I had to use the money I wanted for a new car to get us out." She sighs. "The one with the silver accents & heating seats?" Cat asks. "Yeah. That one." She mumbles. Then a cop comes in, and unlocks our cell. "Youre free to go." He smiles. "Yayyyy!"Cat runs out. "Is Maddie West in the waiting room?" Jade asks. "Nope." He walks away. "Huh?" I say, confused. "Jade, Tori, are you okay?" Beck comes over to us as we enter the waitimg room. "Wheres Maddie?" Jade asks, nervously. "She..." Beck stutters. I hear a cop pulling a new prisoner in. I turn around."There she is.."I gasp as they shut her into a jail cell.
Im home alone... Thats not right... Jades supposed to be home by now. My phone starts ringing & plays "Let it Go" from Frozen by Idina Menzel. "Jade, where are you?!" I scream. "Im in jail with Tori & Cat. I need you to come bail us out with the money Ive been saving for a new car." She says quickly into the phone. "Jail?! Im not going to ask. Im on my way." I hang up. I grab the box of money in Jades room. She really wanted that car. Wait, I dont know how to drive a car. How am I going to bail them out? I immediatly grab my phone & wait for him to pick up. "Maddie, I need to work on my..." I cut him off. "Beck, Jades in jail." I say simply. "Ill be right over." He hangs up.
~Do I have any readers still? Sorry it hasnt been a while since I posted.
"Cat!"I scream. "Where is she?" Tori asks, not seeing her. "Get into the drivers seat! Stay here!" I yell at Tori, & run out of the car. "Hey! Get out of the road!" Some truck driver shouts at me. "Shut your face!" I scream, & wake up Cat. "Cat, cmon, youre in the middle of the highway." I help her up when she opens her eyes. "Sorry, I fell asleep." She giggles, when I hear sirens. "Put your hands up!" The policeman yells at me & Cat as he gets out of the car. "Youre causing a whole lot of traffic, & many accidents from lying in the street, & blocking the road with your vehicle. Wheres your license?" He asks Tori. I slam my hand on my forehead. "Um...I dont have one..." Tori stutters. "Miss, youre under arrest." He grabs Tori out of the car. "What? Please! I was just getting my friend!" She motioned to us. "Good point, you both, in the police car. Youre under arrest." He points at Cat & I. "Nooo!" Cat starts crying.
The Winter Bash is in 3 days & I have nothing for my song. Maybe Maddie is the new me if I cant write one song. I need help. I grab my pearphone & see a load of notifications. Theyre all from Cat. She calls me & I answer immediatly. "Cat, whats up?" I ask. "TORIIIII! I NEED HELPPPP!" She screams into the phone & I drop it, shocked. "Cat, Cat, whats wrong?" I ask. "Im stuck outside in the cold because my brother got arrested for speeding. Im on the highway."I hear her shivering."What? Your brother...well,Ill be there soon. Dont get hit by cars." I say."Kay-Kay." She says in her cheery voice & hang up. If I need to get Cat, Ill need a ride. I try calling Andre, hes at the laser eye surgery place still. Robbies phone is broken, again. And Beck needs to fix the RV with his dad. That leaves one person. I dial the number. "What Tori?" I hear her annoyed voice. "Can you help me get Cat off the highway?" I ask. "Fine."She sighs & hangs up. Well, thats surprising.
She thinks shes better than me. Ill show her. "When I make it shineeeeeeee." I sing amazingly but Im cut off. "You Stink!" Someone yells. "Hey! I put perfume on this morning!" I scream. Then the little girl taps on the microphone at the stage above. Andre starts playing the piano & i recgonize the song immediatly. She starts to sing Roar by Katy Perry. Its... pretty good. But not as good as me. When she finishes, theres a roar of applause. "Hey, You!" Lane points up at her. "Me?" She stutters. "Yeah, how would you like to be a contestant in the Winter Bash competition?" He gives her a signup sheet. "Sure." She smiles & writes her name down. "Do you want me to sign up too?" I ask him. "Um... I need to go..." He walks away, rather quickly. "GET BACK HERE!" I shout, running after him.
Lunchtime. And I have no idea where I should sit. The freshman girls are really weird & nerdy. I get a taco from the grub truck & look for Jade. Shes at the middle table with her gang. I smile as Beck puts her arm around her & she lays her head on his shoulder. I always thought they were a cute couple from what Jade told me. I trip over a backpack & land on the concrete. Ouch. I hear a scream & get up. I brush myself off as a brown haired girl with a taco on her head comes up to me. "Listen up. No one messes with my hair. Im the most talented girl in the school, Trina Vega. And you owe me $50 for this new haircut you ruined." She shoves me back to the ground. Jade & the gang look at me for my reaction. Thats when I realize Vega. Toris older sister, the untalented one. "Hey! What makes you so sure youre the most talented in the school!" I raise my voice so everyone can hear me. She gives me a cold stare. Maybe I shouldnt have done that.
"How did I not know you had a sister?" Beck raises his arms in the air. "She used to go to boarding school, but now shes a freshman here..."I mutter. "And thats a bad thing I guess." Maddie chimes in. Maddie is the complete opposite of me. Shes sweet, kind, & caring. Shes never watched any ofthe sccisoring movies which makes me ashamed. "Hi, Im Cat." Cat giggles. "I know, Jades told me a lot about you. But she hasnt said anything about the coconut guy..." She spots Sikowitz. "Hello Children, & girl I dont know." He stops. "Sikowitz, meet Maddie, my sister." I introduce her again. "Oh yes, the new Tori." He grins. "What?" Tori stares at him. I keep my laughter inside. "Maddies a true performer, maybe even better than you." Sikowitz walks away. Tori stands there with her mouth open. "Well, im just gonna go." Maddie runs off to her first class. "Yeah." The rest of us mutter & we leave Tori by her locker as shes confused and shocked.
