Picking and Celebrating

After a whole day of learning practically nothing, I desperately needed chorus.

As the bell rang, I ran out of the Art Room, dropped my stuff off at my locker, and bolted to the choir room.

As soon as I bolted in the door, I realized something.

I didn't have a song.

I was too caught up with the Thanksgiving preparations to get a song!
And the assignment is THE BEATLES for crying out loud!

I was probably the ONLY one who didn't have a song, so I slumped to my usual seat and expected the worst.

After everyone piled in the room, Mrs. Hodge, in her normal smiley manner, walked to the front.

"Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving." She smiled.
There was a few "Hey Mrs. H's" but nothing else.

Everyone seemed so solemn.

I expected to hear SOMETHING from Callie, considering she's usually a bowl of sunshine, but she was sad and wearing black.

WAIT BLACK?!

I whispered to Callie, "Cals, why are you wearing black?"
She looked at me and whispered, "Because, nine years ago today, something tragic happened." And she left it at that.

I skimmed my mind to think of why, then I had it!
George Harrison, the guitarist of The Beatles, died 9 years ago today, and Callie, being Callie, acted as if it was a loss of a family member.

The Beatles, I thought in my mind, what could be a good song to sing by the-

My mind was cut off by Mrs. Hodge asking;
"So everyone, what are your songs?"

We all just looked at each other.
That caused me to have a huge relief, no one else had a song either!

"No one has a song?"

We all just shook our heads.
"We were all just stuck in Thanksgiving madness." Casey sighed.

It looked as if a LOT happened to the chorus kids over Thanksgiving Break.

Mrs. Hodge gave a knowing smile "I thought so, which is why.." She said as she grabbed her light blue tote bag.
"I brought Beatles albums for you all to pick out."

Everyone looked so grateful. I knew I was!

"Magical Mystery Tour, here I come." Callie smiled as she strode up to get her favorite Beatle album.

"No no no Callie, you must pick through the bag without looking." Mrs. Hodge advised.
"Fine." Callie sighed, then put her arm into the bag and seemed to be shuffling things around.

Finally, she pulled out a CD that said "Beatles For Sale" on it.
She smiled. "YES! I have a PERFECT song now." Callie then nearly skipped back to her seat.

Casey was next, she stood up and walked to Mrs. Hodge. She then did the same as Callie, but this time pulling out a black and white CD entitled "Revolver."
Casey immediately beamed, "My favorite album! Thanks Mrs. Hodge." Casey then walked back and sat next to Elizabeth.

Ryan was next and pulled out a CD that had "Please Please Me" in yellow text on it.
"Awesome, thanks Mrs. H." He smiled then went and sat next to Casey.

I blurred out the rest of the picks but I remember who has what album;

Jake got Help!
Elizabeth got Magical Mystery Tour
Nathan got A Hard Day's Night
Molly got Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Keith got Let it Be,
and Tyler got Rubber Soul.
["WHAT?!" Callie screamed out, Rubber Soul is her other favorite Beatle album, even though she loves them all.]

Then it was my turn.
I slumped up to Mrs. Hodge and put my hand in the bag to search for a CD.
What I pulled out surprised me.
It was just a CD!

"What the...?" I asked in shock.
"Oh, you get the first part of The White Album." Mrs. Hodge smiled.
I smiled too, I L-O-V-E the White Album!
I went back to my seat and beamed.

Then Jessica went up and picked out the OTHER half of the White Album.
"Sweet, thanks Mrs. Hodge." Jessica smiled.

After everyone picked their album Mrs. Hodge smiled and said;
"And Peter will get Abbey Road if he comes back." Everyone nodded in agreement and we all started chatting about nothing in particular when Mrs. Hodge said;

"Does anyone have anything they'd like to sing?"
Callie's hand flew up.

"Yes, Callie?" Mrs. Hodge smiled.
"Well, you see. Today in 2001, George Harrison of The Beatles succumbed to cancer and he was Cindie's favorite Beatle." Callie pointed out then flashed a smile at Cindie.
"What?" Mrs. Hodge asked.
"Cindie wants to sing." Callie beamed.

Cindie was about to argue, but looked down at her all black outfit and purple flower in her hair, then looked at Callie who was wearing all black but with a purple jacket.
[Purple was his favorite color.]

"Okay." Cindie sighed then walked to center stage.
She motioned for me to come on stage with her.
"Yeah Cid?" I asked.
"What should I sing?" She asked.
"Sing whatever you feel is right for this moment right now." I smiled then went back to my seat.
.
Cindie seemed to be deep in thought, then she whispered something into Ben, the other composer of the choir's ear and he nodded then told all of the band.

A few seconds of silence passed.

Then came an AWESOME guitar intro. The kids whooped and hollered.
Then the horn section came in and I knew which song she chose.

"What Is Life." I smiled.

[listen to this song; it's FANTASTIC!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fEFsb8RKT4]

"What I feel,
I can't say.
But my love is there for you anytime of day."
Cindie sang then hopped down off of the stage and danced to Callie.

"But if it's not love." Callie and Cindie harmonized.

"That you need, Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed." Cindie went solo then danced around while singing at the top of her lungs;

"Tell me.
What is my life, without your love?
Tell me
who am I, without you
by my side?" Callie and I jumped up on the piano and were dancing around.

"What I know,
I can do.
If I give my love now to everyone like you." Cindie sang and as the horns went up, Callie and I put our hands up higher and higher.

"But if it's not love,
that you need.
Then I'll try my best to make everything succeed."
Cindie beamed then joined Callie and I to sing;

"Tell me what is my life
without your love." Cindie sang then pulled Molly to join our dancing.

"Tell me who, am I.
Without you," Cindie sang, then pulled Elizabeth up as well.

Callie and I added the "Oooh-oooh's"

"by my side." Cindie spun around and sang.

Cindie pointed for me to jump off the piano and sing.
Which I gladly did.

"Tell me what is my life,
without you love." I made a heart out of my hands and winked at Nathan.

Elizabeth came up behind me and sang;
"Tell me who am I,
without you." She smiled at Jake.

"By my side." Callie and I chorused.

Then we all danced around a bit then stopped abruptly.

Callie slid down the middle of the stage, playing the same guitar riff that started the song.

Molly came out behind her and did a cartwheel across the stage, which caused us all to dance again. Then Molly ran to get the mic from Elizabeth.

"What I feel" Molly swayed from side to side.
"I can't say!" Everyone sang out, and I mean everyone. Even Mrs. Hodge!

"But my love is there for you anytime of day." Molly smiled, then tossed the mic back to Cindie who was dancing on the piano with Callie.

"But if it's not love
that you need,
then I'll try my best
to make everything succeed." Cindie sang then we all got ready to sing the chorus.

Molly ran to her bag and pulled out a picture of George, which Cindie ran to and pretty much sang too.

"Tell me what is my life,
without your songs.
Tell me who am I,
without you,
to help spread my wings and fly." Cindie changed the words up.

I felt so bad, I forgot all about today. Cindie's favorite man in the whole world died today, and I forgot.

I could have at least remembered to hug her.

Cindie never had a dad, her dad left her mom when Cindie was just a baby. So the only person she could look up to, oddly enough, was George.

Stupid me forgot! I feel so bad!

I ran up to her and sang with her.
"Oh Tell me
what is my life,
without your love"
She then smiled to me
"Tell me who am I
without you,
by my side." We locked arms.

Then we all danced around, Cindie spun me and I laughed insanely. Callie rocked out on guitar, Molly and Elizabeth were doing random dance moves.

Everything seemed so.. Happy.

After the song, Callie came up and sighed.
"George Harrison,
February 25th 1943 to November 29th 2001."

Then we all chorused.
"REST IN PEACE!" As if he could hear us,



and you know what?



I think he did.

Second Chances

"One, Two, A-One, Two, Three, Four!" Molly counted off then the guitar intro to "River Deep, Mountain High" played.

Yup, yesterday was our assignment day for Chorus, and who was up first but Molly and me.

"When I was a little girl, I had a rag doll.
Only doll I've ever owned." Molly's voice was sweet yet powerful.

"Now I love you just the way, I loved that rag doll.
Only now my love has grown." I took my turn to sing.

"And it grows stronger, in every way!" Molly's voice got higher.
"And it gets deeper, let me say." We harmonized.
"And It gets higher." Molly sang.
"Day By Day" I joined her.

"Do I love you?
my oh my!
River deep mountain high!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
If I lost you, would I cry.
Oh how I love you baby,
baby, baby, baby!" We danced around and sang.

"When you were a young boy
Did you have a puppy
That always followed you around" I sang and twirled around so the skirt on my dress could fly around.

"Well I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy" Molly walked across the stage.

"No I'll never let you down!" Our voices mixed.

"Cause it grows stronger, like a river flows" Molly's powerful voice sang.

"And it gets bigger baby, and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter baby, as it grows" We harmonized.

"Do I love you my oh my
River deep, mountain high
Yeah Yeah Yeah
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby" We rocked.

We took a second to dance around.

"I love you baby like a flower loves the spring" Molly sang.
"And I love you baby like a Robin loves to sing" I replied.
"And I love you baby like a school boy loves his pet" Molly's voice got higher.
"And I love you baby, river deep mountain high!" When we sang deep, we ducked down and when we sang high, we threw our hands in the air.

Molly harmonized while I danced like my life depended on it.

"Do I love you my oh my, oh baby
River deep, mountain high
Yeah Yeah Yeah
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby" We sang then spun around and posed, but not before giving each other a high five.

Everyone erupted in cheers.
"WOOOT!" Callie and Peter yelled.
"GO MOLLY AND PRU!" Elizabeth and Casey screamed.
Ryan and Jake whistled.
Even Nathan clapped!
I scanned the crowd for Jessica, but she wasn't there!

We bowed and Mrs. Hodge sent us back to our seats.

After us, Callie and Peter went on stage
and sang P!nk's "Raise Your Glass." They were phenomenal!
However, what really got my attention was how Callie was staring at Peter when she sang. It looked more like an "I-love-you" look than a "Your-My-Best-Friend" look.

After them, Casey and Ryan went up and sang Paramore's "The Only Exception" They were awesome! Casey was staring at Ryan the whole time he sang, and Ryan did the same to her when she sang.

Then, Elizabeth and Jake went up and sang "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."
THEY. WERE. FANTASTIC!
They rocked the house, I was smiling. They looked so cute together and their little co-ordinating outfits were an adorable touch!

Then, Nathan stepped up to the mic.
"Nathan, where is Jessica?" Mrs. Hodge asked.
"She went on Thanksgiving vacation a day early, but that doesn't matter.
What matters is that I lost someone very important in my life these last few days.
She's the main reason why I get up in the morning. I hope this song I'm about to sing will make her even consider taking me back, but I don't expect her to, because a beautiful girl like her deserves better than me." He said with his gaze fixed on me.

I wasn't moved.

That all changed when Cindie played the piano intro
to Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are"

My jaw was on the ground way before he opened his mouth,
and that only caused it to fall further.

"Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are" He pointed to me and I blushed.

"And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are" Molly and Callie were looking at me incredulously.

"Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so pretty

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same"

"So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say" His voice got stronger when he ended that part

"When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are" He smiled.

"The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are" His voice got higher than I thought was possible.

"When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are" By then his face was inches from mine and he was singing directly to me.

"And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are
Yeah." His baby blue eyes were still fixed on my chocolate brown ones.

"Please give me a second chance, I know you probably hate me. But Peach, I can't go on without you." He used one of his cheesy lines.

"Well, if you stop using those cheesy lines, then yes. I will give you a second chance." I joked and we hugged.

"AWWWWWWW" Everyone chorused.
I became Peach again, literally.

"Well, class. You have shown me that you are capable of singing everything from Bruno Mars." Mrs. Hodge nodded to Nathan "To Tina Turner." She nodded to Molly and I.

"So what's our next assignment?" I finally got up the courage to ask.

"Callie, you will love this." Mrs. Hodge winked at Callie, but Callie didn't catch the inside joke.

"What?" Callie asked.

"The Beatles." Mrs. Hodge declared.

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" Callie screamed and bolted to hug Mrs. Hodge.

"You have all of Thanksgiving break to pick a song, and when we get back you will tell me which you choose. Have a good Thanksgiving everyone!"
Mrs. Hodge smiled and sent us all on our way out of the halls of AGPPA.

[I just realized that last line rhymed, spooky.]

Costume Craziness

After school today, Elizabeth and Jake stopped by to pick up Elizabeth's costume for chorus;


Jake supposedly has a suit that has the same colour palate, so everything is good with their costumes.

"OHMYGOSH! I LOVE IT! THANKS SONALI!" Elizabeth limped over to hug Sonali.
"Thank-you, Sonali! It looks great!" Jake smiled.
"Your welcome! I hope next week I can help you with your assignment too!" Sonali smiled.
"Bye Prudence, Molly, Sonali, and Callie!" They said then left.
"BYE!" We all chorused.

"Kay, Cals. Here is your dress." Sonali announced after a few tweaks;



Callie's eyes went to the size of baseballs.
"Oh.My.God. That is so AMAZING!" She yelled as she jumped up and bolted to hug Sonali.
"You're the best! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I gotta go show Peter!" Callie said.
"NO!" Sonali warned.
"Why?"
"Because, it's pouring outside, and I don't want the dress to get ruined." Sonali explained.
"Oh okay. But thanks Sonali!" Callie thanked then ran to her room.

Then she turned to Molly and I,
"Okay girls, I have your dresses done. You just need to get them from Mrs. Hudson." Sonali smiled, Mrs. Hudson helps Sonali with the dresses.

Molly turned bright red
"Do we HAVE to go?" She asked.

Did I mention that Keith's last name was Hudson?

"Well, if you don't want to dance in front of the Chorus NAKED tomorrow, then yes, I suppose you do." Sonali retorted then pushed us out of the house.

"BUT" We both yelled in unison, but it was too late, we were out in the pouring rain

without an umbrella.

"We are going to DIE." Molly whined.
"Nope, the only thing that's going to die tonight is your pride." I teased.
"HEY, no use to make fun. YOUR just going to have to go into that house." Molly sighed.
"And leave you out in this weather?" I asked, then a huge flash of white tore across the sky.
"OKAY, I GET IT. I'LL GO. JUST PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME OUT WITH THE LIGHTNING!" Molly yelled then we bolted to the Hudson residence.

"THERE!" Molly yelled, pointing to a two-story brick house with all of the windows closed. We ran up the driveway and knocked on the door.

"HELLO?!" Molly yelled.
"Hello?" Keith answered the door.

It was hysterical, I was fighting back laughter.

"Oh, what do YOU want McIntire?" Keith sneered.
"Get your mom, Hudson." Molly retorted.
"MA! THERE'S A PEST HERE FOR YOU." Keith called to his mom.

A slim, red haired woman with glasses came running down the stairs
"Thank you, Keithy! NOW GET BACK TO BED!" She insisted in a soft voice.
"Fine." Keith mumbled then slumped off to his room.
"What can I help you girls with?" Mrs. Hudson asked.
"We need some dresses." I said.
"Oh, so you must be Sonali's sisters! The ones in the chorus?" She asked.
We nodded.
"Oh Lovely! My Keith is in the chorus and he LOVES it. He also loves this girl named M-" She was cut off by Keith yelling
"MA!"

If it wasn't pouring outside, I could have sworn I saw Molly blushing.

"Well, here are your dresses! Lovely design and I am very proud of how they turned out." She smiled and just as she was about to shut the door another lightning blot flew across the sky.
"Oh no, you girls want a ride home?" She asked.
"Yes please." We replied in unison.

After we all sat in her Range Rover, she turned on the radio and what else than "River Deep, Mountain High." Came on.

"Oh I LOVE THIS SONG! Tina Turner is amazing!" Mrs. Hudson smiled.
"Actually, we are singing this song for chorus tomorrow." I said.
"Oh really? Awesome!" Mrs. Hudson smiled.
"Thanks." Molly smiled back.
"I have the karaoke version on one of my CD's. Can I hear you two sing it?" She asked.
"Sure!" We replied, smiling.

She popped in the CD and the guitar intro played.

"When I was a little girl
I had a rag doll
Only doll I've ever owned" Molly's powerful voice filled my ears.

"Now I love you just the way
I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown." I sang.

"And it gets stronger, in every way" Molly's voice became a bit higher.

"And it gets deeper, let me say
And it gets higher, day by day"

Molly and I exchanged a smile and sang more.

"Do I love you my oh my
River deep mountain high
Yeah Yeah Yeah
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby"

Then, before we could finish, we pulled up to our house.
"You girls are FANTASTIC singers! Amazing! Perfect!" Mrs. Hudson complimented.
"Thank you!" I smiled.
"And Thanks for the ride" Molly finished.

We both waved and ran into the house.

She honked as she drove away.

"Hey, you never know, she could one day be your Mother-In-Law" I smiled.
Molly playfully hit me then we ran inside to check on our dresses.

"Oh my gosh, Nali! AMAZING!" Molly gushed as she saw hers;



"It's gorgeous, Sonali! Great job" I smiled as I looked at Molly's.

"Open yours!" Sonali smiled.

I did as she told, and I was speechless;


"SONALI! IT'S AMAZING!" I smiled.
"There's more." Sonali smiled, handing me a box.
"My contacts!" I exclaimed.
"They came JUST in time for the big day." Molly smiled.
"Thanks!" I yelled and then bolted to my room.

This is gonna be good...
**Prudence..**

Not A Second Time

I was speed walking to Science class, I had just helped Elizabeth [who's on crutches] get her stuff to her class.

Out of random, I decided to practice my Chorus song while I was walking to class, no one was in the hallways so I might get away with it.

"When I was a little girl
I had a rag doll
Only doll I've ever owned
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown.

And it gets stronger, in every way.
And it gets deeper, let me say.
And it gets higher, day by day.

Do I love you my oh my
River deep mountain high
Yeah Yeah Yeah
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby."

I was too busy dancing around to notice the tall figure that I ran SMACK into.

"God, watch where you're going." A familliar voice warned.
My glasses had fallen off, so I had to search for them.
"There!" I exclaimed as I put on my glasses and the figure became clear.

Nathan freaking Modine in the flesh.

I wanted to peel out of there before he could say anything, but something was pulling me to ask him the one question that was killing me.

"Why?" I finally got it off of my chest.
"Why what?" He was obviously confused.
"Why did you break up with me?" I asked.
He took a deep sigh.
"Because, when Jessica and I were practicing, she was major-flirting with me, and I guess it just.... attracted me." He confessed.

I was enraged.

"Well." I started preparing my rage-enduced lecture, but he interjected.
"I'm sorry."
"Well, sorry isn't going to cut it.
You hurt me.
Bad." I said, remembering the heartache that jerk put me through.
"But Peach." He started.
"I'm sorry Nathan, but I just won't take you back at the drop of a hat. Especially after all you put me through." I said then turned and walked to class without a second thought.

That what he deserved.

**Prudence..**

P.S. I do NOT own the lyrics, they belong to Tina Turner. It's her song "River Deep, Mountain High."
NOT. MINE.
thank-you

Smacker

"Open you stupid locker." I mumbled.

Friday was usually my happy day, but not today.

Not after Nathan broke my heart.

"Please?" I asked.
It opened.
"Thank you." I muttered then took my books out, Spanish.
The class with you-know-who in it.

I didn't have time to hear the footsteps approaching behind me, but I did notice my books plummeting to the floor. I looked up and saw Jessica, the two-faced wonder.

"Pruuuuuuuuudy." She said in a high voice.
"Messica." I used the nickname Julia had given her.
"What's wrong sweetie?" She asked in a high voice.
"Nathan dumped me." I muttered.
"About time." She just said.
I had it;
"YOU KNOW WHAT?" I yelled at the top of my lungs
"WHAT?" She asked, matching my tone
"YOU ARE A TWO FACED JERK, AND I HATE TWO FACED PEOPLE." I yelled.
"Why? Because my two faces are prettier then your one face." She fired.
"NO. BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHICH FACE TO SLAP FIRST!" I yelled

and I know that violence is not the answer but...
I slapped her, grabbed my books and ran to class.

I Knew It

"Oooh I love you, my oh my... Yeah! River Deep, Mountain High
YEAH YEAH YEAH!
If I lost you, would I cry.
River Deep Mountain High!" Molly and I harmonized.

Our voices sounded REALLY good together.

Chrissa jumped on her bed, which was right above Molly's room, to quiet us down.

"Your a REALLY good singer, Pru." Molly commented then took a drink of water.
"Thanks, you are too, but you already know that from all of your fans" I smiled.
Then I realized something;
"OH! I have to finish my Spanish Project! See ya Molly!" I said as I dashed out of the room.

-30 minutes later-

"YEAH WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOME FUN TONIGHT!" I sang at the top of my lungs to Chuck Berry's 'Long Tall Sally' as I did my homework. The project is a life-sized portrait of us with an accompanying paper written in Spanish about us. I colored in my blue glasses when my phone went off.

"Dear Prudence...." John Lennon sang.
It was Nathan's ring tone! I smiled then turned off my iPod and picked up the phone.

"Hello?" I asked.
"Hey, Prudence." He said.
"What's wrong?" I asked, he NEVER says my real name. It's either Pru or Peach.
"I.... don't think........." He trailed off.
I couldn't believe it, he couldn't be saying what I'm thinking, can he?
"What?" I asked, trying to be positive.
"I don't think I want to be your boyfriend anymore" He said softly.
"Why?" I asked, the tears beginning to form faster than I expected.
"I think we should just... See other people." He said.
My heart was broken.
"Well, FINE THEN!" I yelled then hung up the phone and slid down the wall and hugged my knees and cried my eyes out.


"I knew it." I sobbed.

Duets and Don't's

*VERY cheesy title, I know*

I practically skipped to Chorus.

I was that happy today, for three reasons
(1) Today is the one year anniversary of our [as in me, my sisters and Melanie's] YouTube Channel! *blows a kazoo*
(2) Melanie said she won't get Annabelle until January. WOOOH!
(3) WE GET TO FIND OUT WHO OUR DUET PARTNERS ARE!

So as you can see;
Happy Pru + Chorus = Skippy time.

I hummed a random tune as I walked through the auditorium doors and took my seat net to Nathan and Elizabeth.

"Hey, Liz!" I greeted.
"Hey Pru!" She smiled.

Before I could greet Nathan, Mrs. Hodge walked onto the stage.
"Hello everyone! So yesterday you all did your Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber songs and I told you that your next assignment was duets. Well, guess what this is!" She nearly sang while waving a notebook up.

"THE DUET PARTNERS!" Callie exclaimed.
"Correct! Okay well here it goes!" Mrs. Hodge announced.

I was confident, of COURSE Nathan and I would be partnered up!
Wouldn't we?

"First couple; Jake and Elizabeth!" Mrs. Hodge smiled.
Elizabeth and Jake smiled at each other, while I knew that Elizabeth was just bubbling with happiness inside.

"Second couple; Callie and Peter!" Mrs. Hodge continued.
Callie and Peter hugged, hey they're best friends! They are entitled to do that!

"Third couple; Molly and Keith!" Mrs. Hodge smiled.
"WHAT?!" Molly automatically stood up and yelled in protest.
"Oh, LET IT GO, Molly. It's obvious you like him!" Callie teased.
Molly rolled her eyes and sat down.

"Fourth couple; Casey and Ryan!" Mrs. Hodge smiled.
Casey blushed furiously and Ryan smiled a bit.
Once again, IT'S OBVIOUS THEY LIKE EACH OTHER.

"Fifth couple; Nathan and Jessica!" Mrs. Hodge announced.

WHAT?!
WHAT?!?!?!?!?!
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!

"WHAT?!" I yelled as I stood up. "B-b-but that leaves me with.."

"Sixth couple; Prudence and Tyler" Mrs. Hodge finished.

Jessica raised her hand
"Mrs. Hodge, Tyler is suspended and Keith went home with the stomach flu."

"Oh." Mrs. Hodge said, scanning her list.

"Then Molly and Prudence, you two are partners. GET TO WORK!" Mrs. Hodge smiled as we all went with our partners.

I sat down by Molly. "So what song should we sing?" I asked.
"Hmm..." She wondered.
"Huh...." I said.
"I GOT IT!" She exclaimed.
"What?"
"You know that Tina Turner song, 'Deep, Mountain High?'" She smiled.
I nodded "Yeah, Mercedes and Santana sang it on Glee about three weeks ago."
"Well, WE are going to sing it!" She explained.
"Awesome!" I smiled.
"I can sing Mercedes' parts, because I have the stronger voice." She announced.

No use arguing with a superstar.

"And you can sing Santana's part." She smiled.
"Awesome!" I smiled and then we began to go over our choreography.
During Molly's lecture on 'pointing your toes while kicking', I tuned her out and tuned IN Callie and Peter. I never noticed this before, but they would look REALLY cute together.

He's tall, she's short.
He has green eyes, she has blue eyes.
He can be shy, Callie? Shy? Never!

They are so different from each other, but hey, opposites attract right?

"What song should we sing?" Callie asked.
"I don't know." Peter shrugged.
"TO THE IPOD!" Callie exclaimed and ran to her backpack, picked up her purple iPod nano and ran over to Peter.
"Oh, Cals, you always have your iPod make the decisions for you." Peter teased.
Callie smiled and shuffled it.
"Hmm, 'Dear Prudence?' Nah, we better save that for Nathan and Pru." Callie smiled.

Shuffle again.

"'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'? Nah, I mean I love that song. But that's one part." Peter said while observing the screen.

Callie put the iPod down and exclaimed "I HAVE THE PERFECT SONG!"
"Tell me!" Peter pleaded.
She whispered it into his ear and he smiled.
"YES, but don't you think that's a little to 'lovey' for best friend to sing?" He asked.
"Well, it's called acting and we will act AMAZINGLY, just you see kiddo." She assured and played with his hair.

I smiled.
"How CUTE are they?" someone asked, snapping me back to reality.
I turned to see Molly looking over at Peter and Callie.
"Yeah." I said.
"Well, we better get going on our choreography! We need to have this down by Monday!" Molly exclaimed while helping me up.


And we ROCKED IT!
But I couldn't keep my mind off of Callie and Peter OR whatever evil plan Jessica had in store.

Tomorrow's gonna be............ something.

Sing! *Part Two*

"And a-one, two, one, two, three, four." Nathan counted.

The opening notes to Justin Bieber's "Baby" played.
He was dressed up JUST like Justin Bieber, I wanted to laugh but I couldn't muster it up after what Jessica had said earlier.

"You know you love me, I know you care. Just shout whenever, and I'll be there. You are my love, you are my heart, and we will never, ever, ever be apart." Nathan sang and did his best Justin Bieber-ish moves, which he failed at. I think this was his way of apologizing to me, but I had to decided whether or not to accept it.

Either way, I felt myself blushing like crazy during all of his parts, and I turned to Elizabeth when Jake did Ludacris' part.

"When I was thirteen, I had my first love. There was nobody that compared to my baby, and nobody came between us or could ever come above.
She had me going crazy, oh I was starstruck. She woke me up daily, don't need no Starbucks. She made my heart pound, and skip a beat when I see her on the street and at school on the play ground. But I really wanna see her on the weekend.

She know she got me dazing, 'cause she was so amazing.
And now my heart is breakin', but I just keep on sayin'."
Elizabeth was as red as I was!

Jake pointed for Nathan to go into the chorus,
"Baby, baby, baby, OOOH.
Like baby, baby, baby, NOOO!
Like baby, baby, baby, oooh!
Thought you'd always be mine, mine.
Baby, baby, baby ooh!
Like baby, baby, baby, nooo!
Like baby, baby, baby, oooh.
thought you'd always be mine!"

Then everyone got up and danced.

"Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah." We all sang in unison.

"Now I'm all gone, now I'm all gone.
I'm gone." Nathan ended.

We all clapped insanely.
"WOOH!" Elizabeth and I yelled at the same time.

Nathan and Jake bowed and returned to their seats behind us. I hugged Nathan and said "You were AMAZING! Better than Justin Bieber!"
He shrugged and joked "that's just me, Peach."

We laughed.

"Okay, good job to all of the boys! Now for the girls! First up we have..... Callie!" Mrs. Hodge announced.

We all looked around.

No Callie.

I looked at Molly, she just shrugged and mouthed "Where is she?" I shrugged and we all searched.

Just then, Callie walked through the doors, in her same costume, but with a Ke$ha-style lightning bolt on her cheek.

Typical Callie, breaking the rules.

"Callie! Where were you?" Mrs. Hodge demanded.
"Getting this on!" Callie pointed to the lightning bolt.
"Oh, well your up next." Mrs. Hodge said then sat in her seat.

Callie nodded and walked to the front of the class and nodded for Cindie to play a CD.

I was at first terrified, but then I smiled when the violin intro to Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" played. She changed the song, but she probably had a good reason.

"I know that we are young, and I know that you may love me. But I just can't be with you like this anymore.
Tyl-e-jandro." Callie said in her best Italian accent

We all laughed and the look on Tyler and Jessica's faces were priceless.

"She's got both hands in her pockets
and she won't look at you, won't look at you.
She hides through love
en su bolsillo
she's got a halo 'round her finger
around you." She sang.

"You know that I love you boy
hot like Mexico, rejoice at this point I've gotta choose
nothin' to loose." She said.

"Don't Call my name, don't call my name, Tyl-e-jandro.
I'm not yer babe, I'm not yer babe. Fernando
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch. Just one more cigarette and HUSH
Don't call my name, don't call my name. Tyl-e-jandro."

Then the music ended and another song started. Callie threw off her Gaga wig and let her light brown hair loose.

The intro to Ke$ha's "Backstabber" Played.
"Back, Back, Backstabber.
Back, Back, Backstabber.
Back, Back, Backstabber."
She sang and walked over to Jessica and sang;
"Bored, Cold.
Sittin' in your basement.
All alone
'cause your little conversations got around
now look at what we all found out.
You have got a set of loose lips
twistin' stories all because your jealous.
Now I know exactly what your all about." Callie sang and changed up the lyrics to fit Jessica.

She then ran over to Casey, Elizabeth, Molly and I and grabbed all of our arms and pulled us over to the stage and we harmonized.
"GIRL! You're such a backstabber!"
Molly added "Stabber."
We all danced around then sang once again,
"Oh girl! You're such a bad talker!"
We didn't want to swear, actually.
"And everybody knows it" Callie sang.
"Girl your such a backstabber" We all sang.
"Run your mouth more than anyone I've ever known. And everybody knows it, everybody knows it." Callie sang then excused us all and we went back over to our seats.
I looked at Callie's best friend, Peter,
and he was smiling and acting like he knew this was all going to happen.

Typical, Callie.

Then Callie sang "BACKSTABBER!" Then posed.

We all stood up and clapped, even Tyler clapped, then Jessica slapped him on the stomach and he stopped, but he smiled at Callie.

Mrs. Hodge smiled and said "Great job, Callie! An unlikely mash-up, but an entertaining one, all the same! Okay next up, Molly!"

Callie walked back to her seat next to Peter and shot me a smile, I returned it and turned to Molly and smiled. She nodded her head to me and skipped up to the front of the room and defiantly sang Poker Face.

After the performance I ran and hugged her. "Good job! Good job!" Elizabeth and I chorused. Molly thanked us and before I knew it, it was mine and Elizabeth's turn.

"Let's rock the world, Liz." I smiled.
We high fived and she nodded for Cindie to put in our Gaga/Beyonce CD.

The intro music started and it looked like Elizabeth was a bundle of nerves. I gave her a side hug and she sang;
"Hello, Hello baby you called I can't hear a thing.
I have got no service in the club you see, see.
What-what-what did you say? Oh, you're breakin' up on me.
Sorry I cannot hear you, I'm kinda busy.
K-kinda busy
K-kinda busy
sorry I cannot hear you, I'm kinda busy." She sang amazingly.
We danced and she sang again;
"Just a second it's my favorite song they gonna play.
And I cannot text you with a drink in my hand, eh.
You shoulda made some plans with me, you knew that I was free.
And know you won't stop callin' me, I'm kinda busy."

Then we danced like they did in the music video, I felt good dancing in front of the chorus and it looked like Lizzie felt the same way.

"Stop Callin'!
Stop Callin'!
I don't wanna think anymore.
I left my head and my heart on the dancefloor!
Stop Callin', stop callin'!
I don't wanna talk anymore.
I left my head and my heart on the dancefloor!"
eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh!
Stop telephoning' me-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh.
I'm busy.
Stop telephoning' me." We spun around each other, something we added then harmonized;
"You can call if you want but there's no one home
and you're not gonna reach my telephone."
Then she sang solo;
"'Cause I'm out in the club, and I'm sippin that bubb
and you're not gonna reach my telephone"
I joined her to sing;
"You can call if you want but there's no one home
and you're not gonna reach my telephone.
'Cause I'm out in the club, and I'm sippin that bubb
and you're not gonna reach my telephone"

Then I took center stage and sang as if my life depended on it;
"Boy the way you blowin' up my phone won't make me leave no faster.
Put my coat on faster. Leave my girls no faster"
Lizzie and I locked arms, like we did the day we got sprayed by Nathan and Jake.
"I shoulda left my phone at home
'cause this is a disaster! Callin' like a collector, sorry I cannot answer!"
I finished.

"It's not that I don't like you,
I'm just at a party
and I am sick and tired of
my phone r-ring-ing." She sang.

"Sometimes I feel like
I live in Grand Central Station,
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls,
'cause I'll be dancin'." I sang

then we started jumping up and down but still kept in tone;
"'Cause I'll be dancin',
'Cause I'll be dancin'
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls 'cause I'll be dancing!"

At the end of the song confetti shot out from the ceiling.

"Did we win?" Elizabeth asked.

"YES! You ALL won!" Mrs. Hodge exclaimed.

"Huh?" We all asked in unison.

"You all just completed your first assignment! Congratulations!" Mrs. Hodge nearly sang.

"What's our next assignment?" Molly questioned.

"It is...... Oh man! I forgot it in my purse, I'll be right back!" Mrs. Hodge ran out of the room to her room to collect her purse.

"Great job Peach!" Nathan exclaimed and then picked me up while hugging me.
"Thanks!" I smiled.

I looked around, everything seemed so..... normal.

I was hugging Nathan,
Callie and Peter were laughing hysterically,
Jake and Elizabeth were practicing their dance steps for our competition and Jake made Elizabeth laugh,
Jessica and Tyler were still exes, but I hate them both so I don't care,
Molly and Keith were scowling at each other because they are enemies,
and Casey and Ryan were trying to act like they didn't like each other, but everyone knows except them.

"I GOT IT!" Mrs. Hodge exclaimed and everyone turned to her.
"OPEN IT, MRS. H!" Nathan exclaimed.
"It's........" Mrs. Hodge smiled.

We all leaned it.

"DUETS!" She yelled!
We all smiled and said "YAY!"

"We will pick partners tomorrow. It's time to go, my little Gaga's and Biebers! See ya tomorrow!" Mrs. Hodge said.

"BYE MRS. HODGE!" We all said as we gathered our things and left AGPPA.

**Prudence..**

Sing! *Part One*

"This is it" I sighed to myself as I got into my blue Beyonce-style ensemble. I walked out of the bathroom stall and got a glance of Callie.

"Wow, Callie! You look really pretty!" I complemented.
"Really? I don't like it." She muttered.
"I'm sure Tyler will" Molly walked up behind her and assured.
Callie's baby blue eyes lit up just at the mention of his eyes.
"COME ON MOLLY! LET'S GO!" Callie yelled as she pulled Molly out of the girls' bathroom.
"See ya in the chorus room!" Molly exclaimed then left with Callie.

I decided to wait for Elizabeth, who was finishing up her math test in Mrs. Jones' room.
I walked back into a stall that had a mirror and looked at myself in it.
"That stupid Callie girl thinks she's going to get MY man." A voice said.
"Wait, Jessica, you and Tyler aren't a couple anymore!" Another voice replied.
"Yeah, you said you hated his guts." Yet ANOTHER voice added.

I peeked through the crack in the bathroom door to find Jessica and her two clones, Jaylin and Janessa.
I silently gasped because Jessica had seemed so nice! She even invited me to her birthday party.

But am I going anymore? Heck no.

Before I could bust out of the stall and say something, Jessica spoke up;
"Well, she'll probably be making googly eyes at Tyler the whole time she sings her song in Chorus."
"He'll probably be like 'OMG'" Jaylin added and they all snickered.

I wanted to kill them all, that was my SISTER they were talking about.

"Ahh well I better get in my Gaga costume for chorus. See ya later. Love ya" Jessica said as she blew a kiss.
"Love ya!" They mimicked and exited.

I opened the door and gave Jessica my best death stare.
"Prudence! Hey! I LOVE your Beyonce cos-" She said in a fake sugary sweet voice.
"Save it." I hissed.
"What ever do you mean?" She asked acting innocent.
"You're a two-faced witch!" Except I didn't say witch....
She just stared at me incredulously.
"You act nice one minute, then you're talking behind people's backs the next." I added.
"Whatever Prudence, your sister Callie was always too fat to be in MY chorus." She rolled her eyes and walked to the stall.
I grabbed her arm and spun her around.
"Okay let's get this straight,
One, CALLIE IS NOT FAT. Hon, she's skinnier than you.
and TWO, Callie is a better person NOW than you will EVER BE.
Oh and Three,.." I slapped her across the face and huffed away.


I'll tell you all about the actual chorus performance's later.

Telephone's

"LADY GAGA?!" Callie exclaimed when we got home from Chorus, Mrs. Hodge gave us our first assignment which was Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, so needless to say, Callie wasn't very happy.
"What's wrong?" I questioned.
She turned to me and said "I don't know a SINGLE song from her."

Oh no.

"B-but you're singing Monster!" I exclaimed.
"Oh Pru, who am I kidding? Elizabeth was listening to that song and I just decided 'hey let's sing THAT song.'"
She then bolted to her room and yelled
"TYLER'S GOING TO THINK I'M STUPID."

whoa, whoa, TYLER?!

"Aww poor Cals." Molly sighed while walking to the door.
"Where you going?" I wondered.
"To go get my Gaga costume, get Callie." She ordered then grabbed her black and grey purse.

I went to Callie's room and knocked on the door;
"Cal, you in here?" I asked, searching for my sister.
"Yeah." She sniffled and was standing in her closet.
"You need a Gaga costume?" I wondered.
"Yup."


We arrived at Magic Costume Shoppe about 15 minutes later.
Molly smiled at the sight of the shoppe and ran inside, while her cousin had to be dragged.
"NO NO NO NO!" Callie furiously yelled.
"YES!" I replied and pushed her in the shoppe.
"Whoa." We gushed in unison.

Thousands and thousands of costumes were on every wall.
Some were sparkly, some were bright, others were colorful
and they ALL were amazing.

We went to Molly, who was perusing an area that was called "Famous"
"Have you seen any Gaga costumes?" I asked.
"OH MY GOSH, LOOK!" Molly exclaimed pulling out a costume that looked like;

"I'll take that as a yes." I mumbled.
"This is SO my Poker Face Costume." She exclaimed looking at the sparkly ensemble.
"Well, we won't find one for m-" Callie was cut off as I threw a costume at her that looked like;

"No." Callie immediatley commented as soon as she got a glance of the outfit.
"Yes." I said "It even comes with the wig like Molly's!"
"Fine." Callie slumped off.

"Now I need a Beyonce costume." I said to no one in particular.
"Well, let's find one!" Molly exclaimed and we began our search for my Telephone costume.
I'm singing Beyonce's part of Telephone and my friend Elizabeth is going to be Lady Gaga.
"I hope Lizzie's having better luck looking for a Gaga costume." I sighed.
"No, I'm not." A very familiar voice said.
I looked up and there was Elizabeth.
"Hey!" I exclaimed
"Hi!" She replied and we hugged.
When we pulled away she asked "I looked around the WHOLE store, I can't find ANYTHING."
We both sighed, then I got an idea.

"SONALI!" I exclaimed.
"huh?" Callie, Molly, and Elizabeth were obviously confused.
"Sonali can make our Gaga and Beyonce outfits, Lizzie!" I explained.
"Ooooh!" They all replied.
"Callie and I will go buy the costumes, you go home and ask Nali." Molly ordered and we went our separate ways.

"I think we should practice the song." Elizabeth offered.
"Yeah! SING LIZZIE GAGA SING!" I exclaimed.
She did what I said;
"Hello, Hello, Baby. You called I can't hear a thing.
I have got no service in the club you see see.
Wha-Wha-What did you say, are you breakin' up on me?
Sorry I cannot hear you;
I'm kinda busy. K-kinda busy. K-Kinda busy, sorry I cannot hear you.
I'm kinda busy."

She sang flawlessly then took a breath and began it again.

"Just a second it's my favorite song they're gonna play. And I cannot text you with a drink in my hand, eh.
You shoulda made some plans with me, you knew that I was free.
And now you won't stop callin' me.
I'm Kinda busy."

"Stop Callin'! Stop Callin'! I don't wanna think anymore.
I got my head and my heart on the dance floor!
Stop Callin' Stop Callin'! I don't wanna talk anymore,
I got my head and my heart on the dance floor!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh!
I'm busy!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh!
Stop telephonin' me
eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh.

Can call all you want, but there's no one home and you're not gonna reach my telephone.
I'm out in the club and I'm sippin' that bubb, and you're not gonna reach my telephone.
Call when you want but there's no one home and you're not gonna reach my telephone.
Out in the club and I'm sippin' that bubb and you're not gonna reach my telephone." She sang perfectly and danced.

I opened my mouth and rapped/sang;
"Boy the way you blowin' up my phone
won't make me leave no faster.
Put my coat on faster,
leave my girls no faster." We locked arms.
"I shoulda left my phone at home, 'cause this is a disaster!
Callin' like a collect er, sorry I cannot answer." I sang.

"Not that I don't like you, I'm just at a party,
and I am sick and tired of my phone r-ring-ing."
She sang.

"Sometimes I feel like I live in Grand Central Station.
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls 'cause I'll be dancin!"
I sang and danced around.

"'Cause I'll be dancin'
'Cause I'll be dancin'" We harmonized.

"Tonight I'm not taking no calls 'cause I'll be danc- STOP!" We both yelled as two figures sprang up from behind a bush and sprayed us with water guns.

"Gosh, it's FREEZING out!" Elizabeth shivered.
"Who did that?" I asked, furiously.

Out of the shadows, came none other than, Nathan and Jake.
"REALLY?!" I screamed.
"Now, Peach. Calm down." He advised.
"Calm down? CALM DOWN?! HOW CAN I CALM DOWN?! I WAS JUST SPRAYED BY MY BOYFRIEND IN 50 DEGREE WEATHER. WHAT ARE YOU? SEVEN?!" I yelled then ran inside my house with Elizabeth following close behind.

Sonali made our costumes which look like;
[Elizabeth's]


[Mine]


Elizabeth was squealing with joy, while I was seething with rage.

What caused Nathan to do that?
Why did he do it?

Those questions buzzed in my head, and on Monday I will answer them.

Things We Sang Today

"WE'RE GONNA BE LATE!" Callie yelled as she and I ran to the auditorium in AGPPA.
"WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?!" I questioned.
"'Cause" Callie breathed as we reached the doors,
"Nathan is in this class." She made googly eyes and tried to be me.
"HEY!" I replied.
"More importantly, I NEED to get this extra credit and SOMEONE" She sneered at me "didn't want to go to Art, so HERE WE ARE!" She exclaimed and opened the doors.

Chorus.

"Dude, really?" I asked.
"Yes DUDE." She replied and walked up with her most "I'm-freaking-Callie-Monroe" walk and went straight up to a black haired, brown eyed teacher named Mrs. Hodge, the chorus director, with me following close behind.

Mrs. Hodge looked like she went through enough for one day because Riley Pennington, the school jerk-face, had just been sent to the Principal.

Callie didn't care, she strode up to Mrs. Hodge and proclaimed, "Prudence and I would like to audition for Chorus." With a proud smile, while mine was nervous.
"Oh really?" Mrs. Hodge asked.
We nodded.
"Well, with Clara-Mae and Josh out, we will have JUST enough room!" Mrs. Hodge clapped her hands together, then called out to the rest of the Chorus
"Everyone we have two new recruits!" She called out pointing to Callie and I.
Nathan and Elizabeth smiled at me, which I smiled back.
"Please introduce yourselves, girls." Mrs. Hodge ordered.
I nodded for Callie to go first which she did,
"My name is Callie Layne Monroe. I'm a hippie, but not one of those non-showering ones because I enjoy personal hygiene. Thank you very much."
Everyone laughed, even Mrs. Hodge smiled a little.
A red head girl in the back yelled out "WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE SINGER, CALLIE?"
Callie smiled and said "The Beatles, of course" Like it was common knowledge.
Some kids cheered.
Callie then bowed and motioned for me to introduce myself.
"Hi, I'm Prudence Farrow. I'm a....." I trailed off,

what was I?

Then I remembered the big word Melanie used to describe me,
"I am a Gleek. Which means I love all things Glee. Also I am a bit of a spaz but I don't spaz out anymore."
Everyone cheered, Nathan said "WHOO PEACH!" I lived up to my name, turning bright peach.
"Well, Callie and Prudence, let's get to the auditions. Everyone off of the stage!"
Mrs. Hodge ordered, and the kids did as they were told and sat in the seats.
Callie and I exchanged a glance, and right as I was about to say I wanted to go first I was interrupted by the doors opening.
"Sorry I'm late, Mrs. Hodge. So So SO Sorry!" Molly's voice filled the doors.
Mrs. Hodge smiled and said "It's okay as long as you're here, Miss Molly."
Molly got closer and noticed Callie and Me and exclaimed while smiling "CALLIE! PRU! I didn't know you wanted to join chorus."
Callie mumbled, "Neither did we."
I elbowed her in the ribs.
"WHOA, Prudy. No need for that." She coughed.

Mrs. Hodge turned to us and asked "Which one of you girls would like to audition first?"
I said "I would."
Callie smiled and wished me luck as I went up to the stage and went to center stage.
I went to, who else, but Cindie who was in charge of all the music.
I whispered my song selection and she smiled and said "You're going to be great, Pru." I smiled and thanked her then went to center stage.

Elizabeth gave me a thumbs up and Nathan winked at me.
I turned and cued Cindie to start the CD.

The intro to Michael Jackson's 'Man In The Mirror' played, then started skipping.
"Oh no." Cindie said then took out the CD and looked to me for ideas.

I had nothing.

Luckily, Callie did. She ran up to the stage and grabbed a guitar and went to the drummer "Do you know 'Things We Said Today' by The Beatles?" The drummer nodded and she ran to the rest of the band and asked them all the same question and got the same response. She then ran up to me and said "You know the song 'Things We Said Today' right?" I nodded, "It's one of my favorite songs Cals, you know that."
"THEN SING GIRL SING!" She ordered and ran over by Cindie and played the guitar intro.

"You say you will love me, if I have to go." I sang a little quiet.
Molly, who was sitting on the piano, motioned for me to sing louder.
"You'll be thinking of me. Somehow I will know." I sang louder.
The kids cheered.
"Someday when I'm lonely. Wishing you weren't so far away." I said, looking at Nathan.
"Then I will remember the things we said today."


After the song ended, everyone got up and cheered. Callie, Cindie, Molly, and Elizabeth ran and hugged me.
"You did AMAZING!" Callie complimented.
"Your a really good singer, Pru!" Elizabeth smiled.
"I think singing talent might run in the family." Molly said, then winked.
"How long have you been able to sing like that?" Cindie asked.
"I have no idea, but thanks everyone!" I replied.

Mrs. Hodge called for all of the kids to form a circle. I looked around and saw 12 kids, Molly, Callie, myself, Nathan, Elizabeth, a short girl named Jessica, a blue eyed girl with freckles named Casey, the boy with long red hair who's name was Keith, two boys with green eyes and one with blond hair and the other with brown, who's names were [blond kid] Peter, and [brown hair] Tyler, a tall boy with glasses and curly blond hair named Ryan and a boy with black hair, freckles and big brown eyes named Jake.
"Okay everyone, well as you know we have been called a 'choir' by everyone in the school, but actually, we are a SHOW CHOIR!" She said gleefully.
"So you mean like a glee club?" Jake asked.
"Yes!"
"So we will, like, travel and compete?" Nathan asked.
"Yes!"
"And be like the show, Glee?" I asked.
"YES!"

This is going to be a good year.

Good Days, Bad Nights

I threw my violet book bag down on my bed.
Today was a good day at school, Elizabeth is such a sweetheart and I finished all of my work in school.

Then came the phone call.

My cell phone went off, singing Glee's version of "Don't Stop Believin'"
I danced to my cell and picked up the phone
"Heyla."
A sugary-sweet voice was on the other line;
"Prudence Farrow?"
I looked at the screen, I didn't recognize the number.
"Who wants to know?"

There was a pause.

"Annabelle Martin. I might become your new sister."

Then everything went black.

Sudden Hatred

WHOA!!
SONNY AND KENNA HAVE A BLOG?!

Gotcha! I knew :]

It used to be Marisol and Jess' blog, but Mari and Jess have been too busy to blog, so they decided [with the help of one of their followers] to give the blog to Sonny and Kenna.

I called them and asked them if they wanted it to happen, here is how it went;

"Hello?" Sonny asked.
"SONNY! HEY THERE!" I exclaimed.
"Pru? HEY!" She yelled.
"Can you get Kenna, but stay on the phone, like put it on speaker." I asked.
"Okay........ MCKENNA BETH WALTERS!" Sonny screamed.
I had to cover my ears, Sonny is loud.
"I'm here okay. Hey Pru! What did you need to ask?" Kenna's much softer voice asked.
"Well, you know Marisol and Jess, my sisters, right?" I asked.
"Yes." They replied.
"And you know how they have a blog right?" I questioned.
"Yes" They said, probably knowing what I was going to ask.
"Well, they aren't going to write on it anymore, so do you two want to have it?" I asked.
"YES!" They both yelled, and I heard Sonny start dancing then fall and hit the ground.
"SONNY? ARE YOU ALRIGHT?" I asked.
"I'm okay" Sonny replied.
"Sonny? What happened?" I heard someone ask.
"Nothing much, Annie, I just....fell." Sonny said.
"Oh," Annabelle said.
I cringed, at first I didn't mind Annabelle, but now everything about her was annoying.
Just then Marisol saved me by yelling;
"PRUDENCE! YOUR BOYFRIEND'S HERE!"
I blushed furiously
Sonny obviously heard because she said "Boyfriend?"
I said "Yeah"
"Next time we talk, you're giving us all of the details." Kenna laughed.
"I sure will, bye!" I said,
"Bye Pru!" Kenna called.
"Bye-Bye Prudy!" Sonny sang.
"Goodbye Pr-" Annabelle said, but I hang up the phone before she could finish.

"Ugh, and to think SHE might be the next doll that comes to my family" I sighed, then realized what I said and slapped myself before going down to see Nathan.

Why did I all of a sudden hate Annabelle? She had never done anything wrong?

Time For Cheering Up

AHHHHHHCOOO!

Hey everyone *sniffle* Prudence here and I am sick.
I think I got it from the puddle I fell in when Nathan was about to kiss me, so Marisol INSISTED I stayed home and to my surprise Melanie stayed home too. She's been feeling dizzy and her stomach is upset so today we were sick buddies.

We pretty much 'bonded.' She told me all about the drama she has been having and I told her about Nathan and the party last night and she was happy for me.
"That's great, Pru!" She said with a small smile on her face. I smiled, but now I know tht she was faking the smile. She was happy for me, but she obviously couldn't bear to smile.

I need to cheer her up,
but how?


**Prudence..**
