LMD-Chapter 1A Chapter by Angie Diane♥♥
“Hey Aimi, are you trying out for the talent show today?” My best friend, Hana, asked me with a big smile on her face. Hana had always told me to do it. I never tried out because I was too nervous. I hated being nervous.
“Yes, I decided I am going to audition for the talent show.” I said.
“Yes! I’m going to go watch you.” Hana said with a smile. I knew she was excited. She’s heard me sing over and over. Normally she would hear me just sing songs that were on my iPod. She’s never heard one of my original songs. I never told her that I wrote a song. She would bug me to sing it for her.
I knew I was going to need the melody I made to go with this song. I wrote the song for both the guitar and piano. I mixed them together, but you could mostly hear the piano. I was better at that then I was at guitar. I was learning to play from my little brother. He was pretty good at it. He helped me and played with the guitar with little bits and pieces. I was glad though. He knew I wanted this to be more in the style of the piano. The song was a passive love song.
I could hear the melody of the song in my head. My heart was starting to beat faster than it has. I haven’t thought about the person that I wrote it for in a long time. I didn’t want to feel the pain in my heart. I knew it was always going to be there. I didn’t know if I was really in love with him or it was a desire to be with him.
“I want you there as support.” I told Hana.
“Yes! I want to see you on stage. You’ll look so pretty. Do you think I could be your stylist the night of the talent show?!” Hana asked happily. I hoped Hana knew that I had to audition first before I could be part of the talent show. I think she was getting a little too carried away. I don’t know if I’m that good enough to be apart. I knew it wasn’t good to doubt myself, but I never thought I was good enough to sing. Hana told me otherwise. Hana was just as good as a singer as me. She could make it in the business, but she wants to be something else. She wants to be in the medical field which is a good field to get into.
I knew that she would always make it into that field. She was already pretty good at healing people. I was there when a mutual friend of ours broke his leg. She was really good with him. I just watched in amazement. I was pretty strong for a girl so I helped him to the hospital. Hana walked along side of us.
“Thank you, Hana. I will be there for you to support your dream as well. I know you will make it as a great doctor.” I said to her. Hana gave me the biggest hug that you could ever imagine. I just smiled, but I knew she could make it.
“Thanks Aimi. So what song are you doing for the talent show?” She asked me with a big smile.
“That is a surprise.” I winked at her. I didn’t want to tell her that I was going to be doing an original song. Hana never knew that I wrote them, but I didn’t want to tell her either. She may figure out who the song is for anyway. She knew who I had a crush on. It’s too bad that he never knew that I liked him as much as I did.
Just thinking about the boy I like brings back old hurt feelings. I couldn’t think about him anymore. It was driving me crazy wondering if he had ever liked me back. Ever since the day he left this old town before I could feel my heart break into pieces. He told me himself that he was leaving, but I don’t think he liked the reaction from me. Why didn’t he tell me?! I could feel tears starting to well up in my eyes.
I needed to get my thoughts collected. I needed to get my mind in focus for later today when I was going to audition for the talent show. That was going to be when school was over. That was in a couple of hours. I could tell that I was starting to get a little nervous. What if someone was going to make fun of me? They have never heard me sing. Only a couple of my friends, but other than that I knew that my whole class never has heard me. Just me I mean I have been in both band and chorus. I normally played the piano or trumpet for chorus. I was a soprano or alto in chorus. I preferred the soprano part of it. I didn’t like being an alto, but whatever my teacher felt was right for me was whatever she thought for me.
I just couldn’t wait until it showed up for time to perform. I knew I was going to love it on stage. I always had when I would sing with Takumi. He would always make me sing with him. I thought Takumi was a pretty good singer. We would duet together. I was on the softer side while he was on the punk side. I knew that he would be able to play with me, but I wasn’t that good of a punk singer.
“You have such a cute voice, Aimi.” Takumi would tell me. I would just smile a wide huge smile. Now that he was gone I could just think those words. His voice was slowly starting to leave my head, but oh well. That reminded me I was going to have to pick up his bands new CD. I had always loved listening to his voice so I was going to hear it even more. I knew he was in a punk band, but he had a soft voice. It’s like he was a girl, but in reality he wasn’t. Oh well I was going to buy his CD later. My parents hated that I listened to his music, but what do they know. They only listen to music from their times. My parents just want me to have a good life. I love them for that and they know my dream.
They are supporting me, but I know I won’t make it. I mean even my family thinks I have a great voice, but I don’t know. I would always doubt me.
Couple of Hours Later
Finally it was time for the talent show auditions to begin. I was going to watch some of the others before I went on. I didn’t come late or anything, but I was still nervous. All those bad thoughts were running in my head. Like don’t screw up or you won’t get another chance. I didn’t want those thoughts to ruin me. I was going have to stay focused.
Some of the other people that were trying out were really talented. I mean they were full bands, but normally full bands always do the talent show. I recognized most of them. They were jerks from my grade. I hated most of their guts. Oh well they did a good job.
“Would Aimi Ayanomi come up on stage?” I heard Mrs. Rogers call. I could feel nerves starting to set it. I handed her my CD. My song came on and I didn’t feel so nervous. I waited for a couple of seconds before starting. That’s how I worked the song anyway. I started to sing the words. I could see my crushes face as I was singing. I could feel more power as I sang the words. My emotions were really coming through.
When I finished I could hear clapping from the other members that were trying out. I was glad that I was able to overcome my stage freight. I smiled at Hana who looked at me. I knew that she was upset that I didn’t tell her that it was an original, but she would freak out if she knew.
“All of the names of the people that made it into the talent show will be announced tomorrow. Thanks.” Mrs. Rogers said. I didn't know what to expect. I hoped that I did a really good job like I did today. Even some other people came up to me and told me I looked like a star. I just laughed, but I was feeling nervous.
