OH MY GOSH, I'M SO SORRY I HAVEN'T UPDATED IN SO LONG! I HAVE A FULL APOLOGY AT THE BOTTOM! BUT HERE'S THE CHAPTER!
Chapter 4 - A Chance For Freedom
Finally after what seemed like an eternity of comfortable silence, Mikaela and Kacey finally drove up to their school, Harmonix High. It wasn't like regular schools that taught Math and Science and all that other stuff. It was a performing arts school for dancers, singers, artists, and anyone who wanted to make it big in the arts.
In other words, it was perfect for the two girls. Well, kind of. They could go without the teasing.
Mikaela loved everything about this school. Once again, she could go without the teasing, but she still loved the beloved high school anyway. The classes were fun, creative, and just plain amazing in her opinion, and the building was beautiful too. It was a fairly large building originally painted a beautiful white, but became splattered with paint and graffiti, which honestly made the building look cooler.
Plus, her mom went to this school, and she loved it just as much as she loved dancing.
As Kacey parked her van in the parking lot, she looked over to Mikaela who was staring out the window lost in her own thoughts. "Hey," she said to get her attention. Mikaela's gaze broke away from the window to look at Kacey. She still had that hint of sadness lingering in her facial expression. Kacey couldn't believe that such a small word could have such a huge impact on one of the strongest people she knew. "Are you gunna be okay?"
Mikaela gave her friend a small but truthful smile. "Yeah, I'll be fine. Morgan's just a stupid bitch, am I right?" she said with a slight smirk on her face. Kacey smiled at her. Her best friend was back to normal...for now at least. But that was good enough for her at the time. "That's my girl," she said fist pumping Mikaela just before they got out of the car.
As they walked to the school, Mikaela got lost in her own thoughts again. She was glad she had a friend like Kacey. She knew that she desperately wanted to know the whole back story about why "the name" hurt her so much, but she was kind and understanding enough to respect Mikaela and not pester her about it. Sure she was a little persistent about it some times, but she knew that...
Mikaela's calm expression quickly merged into a face of shock as the cool, sticky beverage dripped from her hair down to her back. Mikaela and Kacey stopped dead in their tracks, both horrified to what just happened. They could hear girls snickering behind their backs and that's when they knew. Their shocked expressions quickly changed into extreme anger and annoyance, so they turned around to quickly lash out at Mikaela's attacker.
They should have known.
Behind them were none other than Morgan and Ashley and another girl that was the main cause of Mikaela's negative emotions, aside from Dominique of course.
"Veronica, you son of a bitch."
Veronica makes Morgan and Ashley look like the most innocent people alive. If Morgan and Ashley were bad, then Veronica was the devil, and that's an understatement. She was the stereotypical mean girl with pin-straight, blonde hair that fell right into place, and chocolate eyes that could make any guy melt. She dresses like Morgan, or should she say Morgan dresses like her. She was basically the leader of their "mean girl" group, and together they spread their bitterness and insults throughout their land.
"Oh, I'm sorry Mikaela." Veronica said with false, apologetic tone and a smirk. "I was just looking for the nearest trash can to throw out my drink, and you just happened to the closest one."
Morgan and Ashley looked at Veronica with admiration for coming up with such a clever insult, and Mikaela fought the urge to punch them both in their plastic, looking faces. That probably had to be the only difference between Veronica and the twins. The twins have obviously gotten unnecessary plastic surgeries, but Veronica (as much as she hated to admit it) was naturally pretty. The only problem about that was Veronica knew that, and she made sure everyone knew it too.
Fortunately, Mikaela was used to their torment, so it was easy for her to restrain herself from doing something stupid. But Kacey didn't take shit from nobody, so of course she had to stand up for the both of us. Sometimes Mikaela wished that Kacey could just walk away and leave it alone, but her pride prevented her from doing so.
"Listen to me you little whore," Kacey said, venom dripping from her words. "I've had enough of your shit, so unless you wanna keep your face intact, I suggest you walk away now."
Although it was hardly noticeable, Veronica flinched. She knew that Kacey never gave out empty threats and she REALLY didn't want her to mess up her new outfit.
"Fine." Veronica said nonchalantly. She looked over at Morgan and Ashley. "Come on girls. We've got better things to do than to mess with these losers." She sauntered away towards the building with the twins following closely at her WAY-too-high-high-heels.
Mikeala, despite the fact that her entire back was sticky and she probably smelt like soda, started laughing. "Haha! Oh my gosh, she's totally afraid of you!"
Kacey looked at her friend with a smirk on her face. "She should be." Kacey stuck her shoulder out to Mikaela, and she gladly accepted by hooking her arm around it. "Come on. Let's get this day over with." Mikaela said as they too went into the building.
Mikaela came home from school tired as usual, but that didn't stop Dominique and the twins from giving her loads of work. Literally. She had to do 7 loads of laundry and fold them all! She was in her room almost finished with the third load, when she heard the twins come home. Once again they were blabbing about whatever the heck they blab about, but this time she heard something interesting.
"OMG... DC COMMEPETITION... HI-DEF IS... GLITCH!"
Mikaela's eyes went wide and she stopped everything she was doing at the mention of his name. What the hell are they talking about? She got off her bed and walked over to the transmitter on the wall to eavesdrop on their conversation.
She could tell that they were in the living room by the sound of the TV. Apparently they were watching the...news? Now Mikaela was VERY confused. Morgan and Ashley never watched the news. They usually got their gossip from people at school. Mikalea focused more intently to what was being said on the TV.
"And back to you Sidney... Thank you Josh. I'm here standing in front of Tan Industries where the second Dance Central Competition is being held. Sources say that this will be one of the best competitions yet. Last competition's second place winner, Mo of Hi-Def will be MC-ing the competition this year and his other crew member, or as he likes to call his little protégé, Glitch will be performing his own number for the competition."
Mikaela had to move her face away from the transmitter because her twins started squealing in glee. Mikalea rolled her eyes at their reaction, but she couldn't help the small blush creeping up to her face. She started to pay attention again when the reporter started talking again.
"This year the competition will be held in California, and any young dancer can sign up. Dance crews from all over have already started to fly to California, like the famous Riptide, Lu$h, Flash4ward, and Hi-Def Crews. The first place winner not only gets $500,000 in cash prize, but the winner also gets a free trip to New York and an audition to be a world famous dancer!"
Mikalea slowly moved her hand away from the transmitter, her eyes wide and her mouth slightly open. A chance… to be a famous dancer… away from here? Mikaela's shocked expression quickly changed into one of hope and excitement. She HAS to sign up for this competition. This was her only chance to get out of this hell hole of a home. She could make it big in California! SHE COULD GET AWAY FROM HER MISERABLE LIFE! She started to jump around in her room in excitement. She had to tell Kacey! She picked up her cell phone and called her best friend. But while she was waiting for her to pick up, she couldn't help but think that there was a chance that she would be able to meet Glitch in person.
