Another season..brand new contestants. I was ready to see the style of each individual,As three of the knew contestants walked through the door I knew we'd need some work over the next little while. One of them was wearing sweat pants!But today was choice day. They got to choose which style the want top persue for tonights first performance. I sighed and looked around.Waiting for volenteers.Aparently,this years batch didn't have a lot of nerve.
"Okay..Melina?Why don't we start off with you.Everyone else.Please wait outside."
Nervously squeezing my guitar I walked in to the room to see Jasmine.She smiled at me and I sat down.
"So Violet...What song have you chosen?" She asked me..I looked away..I always got nervous around people.
"Um.....Lullaby by Nickelback." I admited."It speaks to me."
"Could you give me a few verses?" She asked. I swallowed.
"Sure." I took a deep breath in and closed my eyes.
Well, I know the feeling
Of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge
And there ain't no healing
From cutting yourself with the jagged edge
I'm telling you that, it's never that bad
Take it from someone who's been where you're at
Laid out on the floor
And you're not sure you can take this anymore
I opened my eyes and saw Jasmine,jaw dropped.
"Could you get Jake for me?" She asked.
"Sure." I walked out of the room and tapped Jake on the shoulder to tell him Jasmine wanted him next.
"Childhood is not from birth to a certain age and at a certain age the child is grown, and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies."
