"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.
I'll post more tonight, thanks. And haha no worries it's not going to be Harry Potter, I haven't even read those only watched the show..so i'd fail :P
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.
That's Criss for you
