"I got news to give you both," said Jennifer Vega, who is my and Cam Geary's manager. "You're both going on World Tour for concerts."
"That's cool," said Cam.
That'll be so much fun. I'm Mary Anne Spier and I'm 15. I attend Stoneybrook High School for tenth grade.
"When?" I asked.
"In a few weeks. We'll be in North & South America, Africa, Asia, Russia, Hawaii, and Australia. I'll give out details next week," said Jennifer.
"Okay. Sounds good," I said.
"Plus, you're both performing at a fair on Sunday afternoon," added Jennifer.
"Oh," I said.
I did that bravely last time because I had my best friend, Kaylee Willis. I had this terrible memory back in New York City when her twin, Kayla, collapsed. At first, it was her appendix. But then, we were told something else was wrong. Boy, did I got upset! That's how I stopped going to the fairs to get rid of that memory. I'm sensitive and if someone mentions the fair, my tears would just show up. Kayla died recently of cancer and I do miss her a lot.
"Excuse me," I said getting up and headed out.
"Uh-oh. I know what's bothering her," said Cam.
"She can do the same thing she did last time," suggested Jennifer.
"That's true she can. Let me go talk to her," said Cam as he went to talk to me.
"Maybe," I siad. "I hate it when the fair memory bugs me. I try not to let it happen, but it doesn't work."
"I'm sure it would work again," said Cam.
"Okay," I said trying to be cheerful.
Later, at home, I was sitting on my bed after I did my homework when Dad knocked on the door and came in.
"Hi, hon," said Dad.
"Hi," I said. "I didn't hear you come home from work. I found out Cam and I are going to perform at a fair on Sunday afternoon. Can I invite Kaylee like I did last time to forget the memory?"
"Sure, that's a good idea," agreed Dad.
I went to go call Kaylee and unfortunately, she can't go. Her family is going away to Florida for a week starting Friday. I don't know what to do now. Should I try and forget the memory? I pray it won't get stuck in my mind because if I start crying in front of everyone, I'd be so embarrassed.
I decided to go Dad. He'd know what to do.
"Were you able to invite Kaylee?" asked my father.
"She's going to be away in Florida for a weeks starting Friday, so she can't go," I said. "I don't know what I should do."
"I'm sure you'll find a way," said Dad.
"I would like to try to block that memory to enjoy the concert," I said.
"That's a good idea to try it that way," said Dad.
"Only one problem: I'm worried about the memory could still show up and if I start crying, I'd be so humilated," I said. "I hope blocking would help."
"I'm sure it will, sweetie," said Dad.
"I'm just nervous about that day," I said.
