prologue.

bpov:

Drained, I threw my purse and coat on the floor by my bedroom door and flung myself down onto my itchy twin size bed. The comforter muffled my groan of frustration as I sulked. Getting rejected for an audition you thought you nailed is really and truly exhausting, I was coming to find out. It seems I was getting good at that particular art. In the 6 months I'd been living in this tiny loft I had managed to get rejected by 9 agencies and 12 auditions. I was now a full time member of the staff at Adelaide's Cafe and Bistro, a minimum wage paying, roach infested shack located near the very apartment that forced me to work. Damn rent.

I sighed and rolled onto my back, staring up at the chipping ceiling paint. I inhaled deeply, breathing in all of the dusty, filthy air, and tried to clear my head. I failed miserably.

I thought of Charlie and Renee.

I thought of Alice.

I thought of Jacob.

I groaned as the name of my ex attacked my thought processes. I sat up and shook my head vigorously, trying to clear it of any remnants of emotion left for the wretch. He had been in the acting department with me at NYU. We got along famously, and dating just seemed like a natural step. But as soon as Jacob entered the world of flashing lights and movie stars, he left me. Fame became more important than our relationship.

I bit back tears as I stood and walked the short distance to the bathroom and braced myself on the sink. I looked up at myself in the old mirror, taking in the puffy red eyes and wildly erratic hair.

I studied my face for a moment before deciding that I had to do something different. Something spontaneous. This trend of taking a leap of faith only to plummet to new lows had to end.

I ran my fingers through my hair. I knew what I was going to do. I was going to go see Alice.


yes the title of the story is intentionally the same as Robert Pattinson's new movie--which i will be going to see, have no doubt. so don't think i copied it or stole it or whatnot.

let me make you a deal. for every review, i will subtract 1 hour from the 24 hours until i post ch. 1. no reviews, then poor little dejected old me will just post it in a day. fair enough? i thought so. and not all updates will be so quick--i do have a life. i just have ch. 1 written already and i can't wait to share it!
