"I don't know should I really enter?"
"Of course girl, I mean what do you got to lose?"
"Well, I mean. I don't really know any magic."
"Hence why it's a school, and they teach you, HELLO!"
I finished filling out my application to be Criss Angel's student at the magic academy and hit submit. The winner would be announced in 2 weeks, and the anticipation was killing me.
"I want someone with charm, someone who the crowd could relate too, but someone different. Do you get that?"
"Well we narrowed it down to 3 contestants it's up to you to choose."
I stared at the three applications before me, studying each one carefully.
Application one seemed very interesting but too cocky.
Application two was great at telling a story but slow at using his hands.
As I picked up application three I noticed something strange it was a girls name. No girl has applied to be my student before. She seemed timid but very creative when let go, and passionate. She was perfect.
"I want her."
"Yes, a girl. Kyrii."
"Are you positive Criss?"
"More then ever."
Just a sneak peek into the story, hope you all want more :)

Sounds intriguing, but please don't make it a Harry Potter ripoff--keep it original.

It was early morning about 7 and I heard a knock on the door. 'Ugh, who can be here this early.' I thought to myself. After tying my hair back in a ponytail so it didn't look like such a Mess I screamed "i'm coming!" Downstairs.
I opened the door and slammed it shut in their faces. "OMG!!!!!!!!!!" After regaining my composure as best I could I reponed it.
"Um, hello. Sorry about that."
Criss stood laughing.
"It's fine. Happens all the time." He smirked.
I just stood their silently with a smile on my face. Let me tell you, it was awkward.
"So um, anyways. I just wanted to come down here and congratulate you on becoming the first canidate at the Magic School!"
"ARE YOU SERIOUS?" I yelled.
"Completely, were flying you on a jet plane back to vegas right now."
I jumped up onto Criss to embrace him in a hug and felt his muscles squeeze around me. I stiffined a little by the shock of how strong he was then let go.
"You might want to change first."
There was that smirk again. It was so playful I just couldn't help but smile back.
I looked down remembered I was wearing pjs, ones with bunnies on them too. I shook my head and invited them in while I ran upstairs to change.
"Criss, are you sure she's the right one? She's so young."
"And look at how spunky she is, it's great."
"She didn't even say anything."
"She didn't have too."
"Whatever you say Criss."
"Good, you guys should know by now I know what i'm doing. Trust me on this one."
I turned my back to the guys and looked around her family room. There were pictures of what I assumed was her younger brother and her dad playing baseball, an old vintage photo of her mom with flowers. And finally a picture of her dancing.
Only three photos seemed a bit boring, so I continued to look around. Her kitchen was fire red but looked spotless, I wondered if she ever cooked in here. To the right there was a room with the door cracked open so I took a peek.
"Wow, now this is spoiled."
The inside was painted blue with dog bone wallpaper at the top, and a dog bed big enough for a human, there were dog treats, dog toys, anything related to a dog was in here.
I felt a tap on my shoulder and turned around.
"That's my baby boy's room."
"It's nice. Where is he?"
"Unfortunatly My tennant won't allow him to live here. Because he's a saint bernard."
"Aw, all this for him and he can't even enjoy it."
"Nope, but i'm sure you baby Hammie gets to enjoy life right?"
"When i'm around."
I shrugged my shoulders as if it was no big deal. But there was truth hidden in those words. I was never around long enough to enjoy my time at home, in fact we were running late now.
I grabbed her bags from her and ushered her onto the plane. 12 hour plane ride here we come.

More please :)

Sorry for not replying sooner, School started and it's senior year. AAH!
My knees were shaking by how nervous I was, so I casually smiled and tried to look cool even though inside I was freaking out. I scanned the rows of seats trying to figure out where I should sit. Criss patted down next to him.
"Gotta get to know you, if I want to teach you. So tell me something about yourself."
I thought about what I could tell him, perhaps about my past no that's too personal. Maybe something silly, but he could be taking this really seriously. I finally settled on a simple..'Uhh I don't know what to say.' and put my headphones in. Why was I so nervous?
When Kyrii put her headphones in I assumed it meant she didn't want conversation. It was different for me, usually people had tons to say, but she was different. I guess that's why I was attracted to her application.
I tilted my head ever so slightly to see what she was listening too. It was a song I sang. What was going on in her mind? I dug out her folder out of my backpack and looked through her list of interest. animals, magic, books, music, glitter. What an interesting assortment.
"Uh, read any good books lately?"
"Oh, umm...Not really."
She turned away and I was beginning to get discouraged maybe I made the wrong choice. You couldn't be shy in show business. Especially in Vegas.
I didn't mean to be so shy. But how could I not be? I was so intimidated by just his presence that just him speaking to me made anything I thought I should say seem stupid. After a few hours passed of not talking I got sick of it. I wasn't going to ruin this opportunity for myself like I do with all the others.
"Criss...." I said nervously.
"Do you ever get nervous?"
"Are you nervous?"
"What is there to be nervous about? Think about it, you don't have anything to lose, because at the moment you don't have any fans, so you can't really lose any either."
"True. But I mean do you get nervous about life?"
"You know what we deal with on a daily bases?"
"Of course, but then I just think, why be nervous? Life is going to go on with or without you joining in, so why not make it worthwhile?"
"Not smart, just a thinker."
"And by the way, Yes I did."
"It was your book. Of magic."
He smiled and then I rolled over and went to sleep.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I like this

"And ladies and gentlemen we have arrived."
I grabbed Kyrii's Luggage and headed towards the top floor of the suite, frequently peeking behind me to see her over animated expression on her face. I smiled to myself.
"This is what I call home."
I called to her as I opened the door sitting the luggage down in the entry way. Her mouth was gapped open with no sound coming out.
"This is where you live?!"
"No, this is where I sleep."
She ran over and hugged me and I embraced her. Her smile was larger then I thought was even possible. Poor girl was going to faint.
"Do I..I mean is this..."
"It's for you."
I chuckled and led her to her bedroom. Their was drywall up and a blank matress and a plain white dresser.
"I figured that you would know what you liked better then I did."
"Oh haha, i'm not picky."
"For some reason I doubt that."
She smiled and flopped onto the bed her belly face up.
"Hey now get up, it's time for classes."
I led her down to the front stage with the rest of my crew and gave her an encouraging squeeze and sat down in front of the stage.
"Now perform magic."
I smirked as I watched a frightened look come over her face.
I could feel my face turning red as I tried to impress Criss. Magic? I didn't know any. I mean I've always wanted too but that doesn't mean I knew how too. I smiled nervously and backed away.
"Uh, i'll be right back."
I ducked behind the curtain and tried to catch my breath. I closed my eyes and breathed. You know what, i'm going to do it.
I ran back to the front of the stage.
Criss gave me a quizzical look.
"Don't you get it?"
"I disappeared." I let out a laugh.
And suddenly the whole room started cracking up.
"You my dear are a wonderful magician." Criss chimed as he came up and put me on his shoulders.
"Everybody meet Mrs. Vanisher."
I squeeled and kicked my way off his shoulders.
"I'm sorry I don't know any magic, umm..this is a school?"
"And we'll teach you, I just wanted to see how you handle crowds."
"Crowds? Um, it was only you."
"And I have like 800 people in me."
I playfully punched him and could tell that this would be the best school ever.
09-20-2011, 04:28 AM
That's Criss for you
09-24-2011, 03:08 AM
"Is this your number?"
I groaned in frustration. I had been practicing this same trick for over 2 hours and I still couldn't get it right.
"Magicians weren't made in a day you know."
"I just....I want to be perfect you know?"
"No one's perfect."
"Can I call my Andreana?"
I sulked my way to my bedroom, shut the door and dialed my best friends number.
"Adrii. I miss you." Trying to exaggerate the sadness in my voice.
"Aren't you having fun?"
"Well of course, but I mean I can't do anything right, i'm a horrible magician."
"No your not, you just need practice. Criss had been practicing since he was a child."
"I know, I know. But you know how I am."
"Yes I do, but I also know how determined you are, and I know you aren't going to give up that easy."
"It's just so frustrating."
"Hang in their girly, hey Mike is here, i'll call you later okay?"
I shut my phone and stared up at the ceiling. Why can't I have a wonderful boyfriend who would make me think everything's perfect. I closed my eyes and let my mind drift off.
I has just gotten off work and figured I would check on how Kryii was doing with J.D. I had told him a few basic tricks to start her out on and wondered how far they progressed.
When I came in I saw J.D. but no Kyrii.
"Where is she?"
"Her room." He sighed.
"Criss, I don't think she's cut out for this, it's like she's so close but she gives up so easy."
"Trust me brother, for once?"
"I always have."
I patted him on the back and knocked on her bedroom door. I heard a faint noise and figured it meant I could come in. She was laying on her bed off in a day dream so I sat on the edge of the bed pulling her back to reality.
"No, your not."
"Your not okay, your exhausted, you feel less then perfect, and your wondering why you even signed up for this."
"I know because I wondered the same things when I was little, heck I still do. But the fact is your here for a reason and i'm going to help you with that reason. You just need to have a little patience. Can you do that?"
She nodded her head slowly and I glared at her.
"Good then lets go out for some dinner, get your mind off of things."
She looked at how she was dressed with a messy bun on the top of her head, an oversized sweatshirt and skinny jeans.
I smiled and nodded.
"Just like that."
I grabbed her hand and helped her off the bed and out into the living room where J.D. was. and nodded at her, knowing what she was going to do.
"I'm sorry J.D. I just, want to be the best for you all and I don't want to let anyone down."
"It's okay, but where are you going now?"
J.D. flashed me a warning look and I rolled my eyes. It was nothing like that. She was way to young.

keep it coming
09-27-2011, 11:14 PM
We walked into some awful restaurant. Not awful as in dirty but awful as in extremely elegant and I did not fit in. I looked at Criss with a 'you've got to be kidding me' look but he just squeezed my shoulder and led me along.
We got seated at a booth towards the back of the room. The waiter gave us our menus is what seemed like half a second but I guess that's the kind of service you get when your famous. I took a quick scan over the menu and gawked at the prices. 12.95 for some 'italian' pizza.
"Criss, i'm not eating here."
"Will you relax, it's on me."
"Just because you have money doesn't mean you need to spend it all."
I seethed. He just smirked and rolled his eyes. The waitress came back asking if we are ready.
"Two glasses of wine and the shrimp special please."
I reached over the table and pulled his arm hair.
"OW!" His arm flung back.
"What the heck?"
"That, was, for, ordering, for me."
I said between gasp of laughter. Soon we were both cracking up laughing and we had the whole room staring at us.
After eating we headed back to the flamingo club to dance our supper away. Based on the way she was dressed I knew they wouldn't let her in so I grabbed her hand and ushered her in.
The music was blaring and she was just standing there.
"I'm not going to embarrass you more then I am."
"Criss, look at me!"
"I am! and your fine, I wouldn't ever do anything to purposely hurt you."
"Your not hurting me, just yourself."
"I wouldn't do that either."
I could tell this back and forth wasn't going to get anyways so I started making a fool out of myself. I tried doing the worm on the floor, did the moon walk, and then tried doing the tango with her.
After about a half hour she finally loosened up and a slow song came on. I looked at her questionably and she nodded her head yes. I wrapped my arms around her, lightly pressing my hands to her back.
We swayed back and forth staring into each others eyes. She nuzzled her head into my neck and I slowly lifted her chin back up to facing me and leaned in. We were so close to kissing I could see the shimmer of lip gloss.
But she jerked away suddenly and ran. And when I mean she ran, she ran. She was shoving people left and right, and I was struggling to keep up with her. I followed her out to the car and when I put my arm on her a tear slid down her cheek.

What's got her so scared update
10-03-2011, 11:10 PM
I slipped into the car next to her and wrapped my arm around her. With my other hand I smoothed away her tears and pulled her into my embrace.
"Shh, it's okay I pleaded."
She turned her back towards me and faced the window I backed off and sighed.
It was a mistake, I shouldn't have tried to kiss her. Obviously by the way she acted that was not what she wanted and I should have known better. The limo driver glanced at me through the mirror and I ushered him on to go.
Once we got back to the hotel she went to her hotel room and I went to mine. J.D. was sitting on the bed and just one look at him told me he knew something was up.
"You okay brother?"
"What's going on."
"She hates me."
"Told you it was a bad idea."
I sat down at the chair across from him and flopped my feet up.
"Dude, I tried to kiss her."
"I know, I know. And if I didn't before trust me I do now."
"Well what did she do?"
"She ran away."
I saw J.D. crack a smile. and I glared at him.
"Whatever i'm going to bed. The last thing I need right now is more drama."
"No, the last thing you need is another relationship."
I couldn't let him get that close to me again. Who knows what could happen. All I know is that all of the reasons would be bad.
I flipped through my scrapbook my friends made for me and laughed at all the memories. Whenever I was feeling down just looking at the pictures of us made me feel better.
I was scared I really was. But the fact is, I don't want to be scared anymore.
10-03-2011, 11:52 PM
What is she afarid of????
10-07-2011, 12:38 AM
I called Angelina and read her the newspaper title.
"Too young for Vegas? HAHAHA" she laughed.
"It's not funny, I knew this would happen."
"Girl if you can drink, your old enough to be there."
"Yeah but Criss is in his 40's isn't that a little weird?"
"Only if you find it weird, besides you guys are romantically involved....are you?"
"Ew, gah no. Hello age? Weirdo."
"I'm just saying, then in shouldn't be a problem."
"Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, i'll call you later."
"Kay love ya."
This was the whole reason I didn't want to come here. What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas. Besides we all know that this is the rumor mill.
Kyrii came storming into my room flagging a newspaper around. I grabbed it out of her hands and read the title laughing the whole time. She stomped her way to the couch and flopped down.
"Why does everyone think it's sooo funny except for me?"
"Because you have to take it for what it is. Turn it into a compliment. It pays to be young in Vegas, literally."
"Oh shut up."
She playfully punched me and I growled at her. In a way I liked her being young because it brought out the less stressful me, something I haven't been able to do except through magic. She brought out my childhood.
"Let's practice magic."
"Ughh." She groaned.
"If you don't practice you won't learn."
"I know, I know."
Down side to her being young, complainer! ha.
After 15 minutes I successfully taught her a card trick. She was bad, like really bad. But she was determined and that's really all it takes.
"Hey, to celebrate me and the gang are going out, you want to go?"
"I don't know, am I too young?"
"Shut up, i'm going."
And all the awkwardness from yesterday seemed to be gone, hopefully tonight wouldn't end the same.

10-07-2011, 04:43 PM
i love your stories. you should make one of a time when you met Criss! i think it wud be awsome! and btw i love him too! my dream is to meet him
10-09-2011, 04:54 PM
Thank's everyone :)
I led Kyrii and myself into the restaurant where the rest of the group was waiting.
"Bout time you got here."
I held the seat out for her, and took a seat next to my mom. Kissing her on the cheek.
"Did you guys read the headlines?"
Kyrii shot me a warning glare.
Almost everyone chimed in then laughed. My cell phone rang and I excused myself.
"Alright, i'll be right there."
I made my way back to the table eyes glued to the floor. I never got to spend time with my family and tonight would be just the same.
"Guys, I gotta go."
"I guess someone messed up on the schedule and I'm suppose to be on in a half hour."
"I know Costa, and I'm sorry. Just i'll pay okay?"
"It's up to her."
I glanced between Criss and his family not sure what I should choose.
"Can I go with Criss?" I asked shyly.
J.D. shot Criss another glare and I quickly decided that was the wrong decision.
"I mean, I can stay, if you want, for real, it doesn't matter." I stammered.
"You can come, lets go."
Criss nodded towards the door and I quickly said goodbye. Obviously my face showed how I felt because the second we stepped out of the door Criss turned to me.
"Nothing, I just am frustrated."
"Can I do something to help?"
"Can you convince them to trust me?"
"They trust you."
"No Criss, they really don't."
"I'm so young, and your so old, and everyone tries to get in your pants and they think I will too. Yeah whatever."
"Me too...me too."
Really short but I'll update more tomorrow :) Woo!
10-17-2011, 11:45 PM
The rest of the ride was silent. I can't believe I just spilled my guts to him. Every now and then I would catch him stealing glances at me and I would just bury my face further down. Once we arrived he ran to his show not saying anything. Which was fine, I didn't want to embarrass myself any more then I had.
About half way through the show he called his assistant out. No one came and I began to wonder if he meant me.. "Um, someone come out, hello Kyrii." The audience laughed. We hadn't rehearsed this at all and I refused to make a fool of myself.
"Okay well she's being a little shy so lets try to get her out."
The crowd started chanting my name, I couldn't let him down again. So I made my way out.
The crowd hollered as she stepped unto the stage and I wrapped my arm around her.
"Ladies and gentlemen I'd like to show you a new magic trick called apologies. Although it's been done before it's never been more real until now"
I grabbed a rose from behind her ear and gave it to her. Throwing a red cloth over her head and spinning her around only to uncover it and show her smiling. The crowd was lost.
"You see, the greatest trick of all is love. The love of a friend, and enemy, family. It can fix everything. When you put energy into something there happy, and all it takes is an apology to fix things."
I grabbed Kyrii and we bowed down. The energy booming around us and between us like an invisible string connected us, and slowly bounced up and down.
I knew the tabloids would build a new story off of this but I wanted a story too.
10-18-2011, 03:55 AM
That's a cute way to apologize
