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.
