The palm woods…the best place in the world for an aspiring young singer…the worst place in the world for me. I'm not a star all five foot six inches off my body are supposed to be in the dirt playing softball, but no, I had to put one little video up on youtube of me singing and suddenly I'm getting a phone call telling me I'm gonna be the next big star. This is not what I want to do with my life, but of course my mother told this guy, gustavio that I'll do it . Geesh this isn't how I wanted to spend my summer.

Glancing at the pool longingly I walk in slow motion up to my room, 2K, and slowly unpack. I glance into the mirror and shake my long dirty blond hair in an attempt to make it look normal. It doesn't work. Sighing I slip shorts and a tank top over my bathing suit and call "Mother I am going down to the pool I don't have my phone only my Ipod and book." My mother glances at me and says "Jenifer you don't have to go to Roque Records today anyways, the woman Kelly told us that you are meeting with them all tomorrow, oh and have fun meet lots of people, don't hide behind you're book." I nod vaguely at my adopted mother and slowly walk out down to the pool. I open my I-touch and start listening to Akon.

I slide into an empty pool chair and slide my sunglasses over my eyes in attempt to make myself seem unfriendly, I'm not sure if it works or people here are just overly friendly, because a couple minutes into my book I feel a hand touch my arm. I jump a foot into the air and yelp, ripping my earbuds out. I turn to see a very cute guy standing to my left that's probably why I didn't see him. "Hi…" I say slowly wishing I would just be left alone. The boy doesn't seem to notice and flips his hair saying "Hi I'm James, are you new?" I roll my eyes and say "Yep, my names Jenifer, I'm gonna be a singer whoopee." I finish sarcastically. James frowns and says softly to himself "Another Jenifer?" then he grins at me saying "Well I'm in a band, Big Time Rush?" I nod because I have heard of them…I just don't have any of their songs. I look down awkwardly then say "Uhh I have to go my mom will be worried. It was...nice to meet you." I get up to stretch, realizing how tall James was, I look up at him as he says "I'll walk you to your room." He links our arms together not noticing my discomfort and says "What room are you in?" I fidget then say "Uhh 2k…" he grins looking down at me and says "That's right next to me and my buddies."

I smile back while on the inside I'm beating my head against the wall screaming "LEAVE ME ALONE!" He moves closer to me as we stand in the elevator, and almost unintentionally I tense my muscles. I know he felt it because he looks at me with an amused expression and says "Do I intimidate you?" I frown and relax my muscles "No." I said shortly, wishing I was anywhere but here. I leaned against the wall trying to make it clear that I don't like him but he smirked and leaned over to me saying "Jenifer what's the matter?"

I frown over at him then say "Look bud I just met you, I don't even know you and you don't know me so why the cheese are you bothering me?" James laughs and says "Well I guess I can understand your confusion. Let me explain, I work for Gustavio too, and he told us everything about you so I guess I feel like I know you." I push him away snarling "Listen, neither you nor Gustavio knows crap about me. So just back off." James smirked and said "I can't because you are just like me whether or not you know it yet." The elevator opens and I stalk out and down the hall open my door and slam it shut.

My mother looks up with concern written all over her face, she smiles nervously and says "hey did you meet anybody new?" I glare at my mother and stalk over to my laptop signing onto my facebook to find a video waiting for me. I click it to find all of my best friends standing on the softball field "Hey Jay hope you like your new home, we miss you and wish you could come back we love you and wish you could still play." Choking back a sob I wrote on my wall "I miss you all and I love you too!" I check my messages and saw a couple from before my accident. They were all about scholarships for softball. Choking on sobs I flop onto my bed, wishing for just the millionth time that day had never happened.

"Jay hurry yo skinny butt up!" My friend Shay yelled from the car. Grinning I grabbed my three bags for the three night softball tournament. I threw all of my stuff into the back and hopped into the car and we sped off to the school where we would be picked up by the charter bus. The bus ride took three hours but felt like 3 minutes. We sang and joked around getting ready for the games.

After we got settled into our rooms we had a game. Through the next two day we won four out of the four games and were going to the final. The second I struck the last batter out of the game that secured out spot in the final I was jumping up and down cheering. After we shook hands I did the good luck thing I always do, put the game ball in the ditch I dig when I pitch.

I didn't notice the girl until she was standing right next to me. This was the girl I struck out for the last out. I smile and stick out my hand starting to say "good game" when she swung the bat at my head. I dodged it falling backwards, she swung back hitting me with the knob in the face…of the rest I remember nothing.

The next thing I remember was waking up with my mouth wired shut and not being able to see very well out of my left eye. I screamed from the terror of not being able to see. The nurses ran into the room to find me withering in pain. After I calmed down they told me that the girl who hit me broke my upper jaw and destroyed some of the left eye tissue. I remember the worst thing I heard was the words "you won't be able to play softball anymore".

Waking up crying has become a normal thing for me. Without softball I am nothing. Depressed I look at the clock to see that it's five thirty in the morning. Sighing I realize this is most sleep I've gotten in months. Knowing I won't be able to go back to sleep I slip into sweat pants and a tank top and walk down to the pool. I stretch out on a chair staring at the water when I heard somebody's voice timidly say "Oh sorry nobody is down here this early…I'll leave." I glance over to see a Latino boy standing in the doorway looking hesitant. "N-no it's ok you can chill here too." I said "This is where I come to think." The boy said taking a seat next to me on my right.

I nodded and said "I'm Jenifer most people call me Jay." The boy smiled and said "my name's Carlos, and your pretty enough to be in the Jenifer's group." I blinked and said "The who-now?" Carlos chuckled and said "The stereotypical pretty girl group. But I think your too nice." Grinning I say "Dude you don't know me that well then." Carlos chuckles and stretches saying "My friend James told me that a new pretty girl moved here, but he never said you were funny." I smirk then say "Wait your friends with that creep James? When I was chilling yesterday he wouldn't leave me alone, he was soo weird."

Carlos burst out laughing; gasping for breath he said "you didn't like him? Normally girls fall in love with him when he gives them the face." Frowning I shrug and say "Sorry the pretty boy thing doesn't work for me." Carlos still chuckling says "I can't believe this. This just made my day!" smiling I check my watch and saw that almost half an hour has passed. "Poo sorry Carlos I have to get ready to meet this Gustavio guy. He's sending a woman named Kelly to pick me up at 6:10, I'll see you later?" Carlos grinned and said "Hey I work for Gustavio too! I'll see you later." He said as I walked away smiling.

After showering quickly, getting dressed and letting my hair dry, I was ready to fail this singing thing. I looked up from my Coco Krispies at my mom and said "If I fail this can we go back home?" my mom looked up at me and said "Jenifer no matter how bad you want to go back you can't go. You only want to go back to you can play softball, you can't play, so try to put all of your drive for playing softball into this singing thing." Tears fill my eyes and I mutter "softball is my life, you know that and I don't know how you expect me to just change to something I can't even do."

My mom stood my said "This discussion is over, when you sing for the company today you will do your best or I will never let you go back to New York for holiday." I stood up and snarled "Good Job mother, destroying your only child's happiness, wonderful job mom." I stalk out of the room to see a woman standing in the door way of 2J yelling "BOYS HURRY UP I HAVE TO PICK UP JENIFER TOO!" I walk over to her and say "My name is Jenifer, are you Kelly?" The woman nods and says "Hang on Jenifer the boys will be out in a second. KENDAL, JAMES, LOGAN AND CARLOS MOVE IT!" smiling at this woman yelling at the door I almost miss a voice say "Oh hey Jenifer." I look to see James standing next to me. I move away from him to stand next to Kelly. I hear laughter and look up to see Carlos gasping for breath "Aww Jay, this plus this morning makes my day." Smiling at Carlos I say "It's not my fault he creeps on me." Carlos and I smiled while James glared at the Carlos.

"This is Kendal and Logan, Logan is the super smart one, he reads!" Carlos whispered in my ear as we walked behind the group. I glanced at Logan who was holding a copy of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Grinning I sneak up behind him and take the book, he turns around swinging his arm and I dodged it. I was really lucky if he swung on my left side I wouldn't have been able to see it coming till the last second. Logan's face paled as he realized he swung at a girl but I was already bouncing with Carlos who was laughing at Logan's face, which was a mix of shocked and embarrassed. "Aww sorry Logan it's just I read this while I was in sixth grade and really loved it." I said holding the book out to him, Logan tentatively reached out for it but I jerked it back saying "Logan you can speak, as long as you don't creep on me like James, we will be friends."

Logan's face broke out into a grin and he said "I'm sorry I tried to hit you, it's just I'm used to these idiots trying to ruin all of my stuff, so I have to defend it." Grinning I hand the book back and say "It's ok , if I had known that you would have tried to hit me I would have done something else." Chuckling the three of us catch up to Kelly, Kendal and James. James was glaring at Logan and Carlos as if they had done something wrong. I shrugged as we plopped into the stretch limo, I started pressing the buttons and noticed that one looked especially interesting. It was a green button that had a music note on it. Grinning I pressed the button and all of a sudden my voice filled the car. It was the song I sang for the video I put up on youtube. I froze as I sang,

I've been awake for a while now

you've got me feelin like a child now

cause every time I see your bubbly face

I get the tinglies in a silly place

It starts in my toes

and I crinkle my nose

where ever it goes I always know

where ever you go

The rain is fallin on my window pane

but we are hidin in a safer place

under covers stayin dry *(safe) and warm

It starts in my toes

please stay for a while now

just take your time

where ever you go

I've been asleep for a while now

You tucked me in just like a child now

Cause every time you hold me in your arms

I'm comfortable enough to feel your warmth

It starts in my soul

And I lose all control

When you kiss my nose

The feelin shows

Cause you make me smile

Baby just take your time now

Holdin me tight

Where ever, where ever, where ever you go

Where ever, where ever, where ever you go

Where ever you go, I'll always know

Cause you make me smile here, just for a while

The boys had goofy looks on their faces, and Kelly was grinning at me while I blushed thinking "What the cheese? Why are they looking at me like that?" I flipped off the music thing and sunk down into the seat. James was grinning at me like a weirdo and feeling annoyed already I snapped at him "Why are you looking at me like a weirdo?" James grinned even bigger and said "No reason." Kelly looked at us and said "Wait James did—" James smacked his hand over her mouth and whispered something into her ear.

Frowning to myself I glared at the window wishing I could go home. After 10 awkward minutes in the car we got to the recording studio. Standing next to Kelly and Carlos I gave James a death glare and walked with them up to the studio.

A large man was standing in the hallway looking angry. Carlos put on his helmet and gave it a nervous slap. "DOGS YOUR LATE!" the man yelled. I stepped backwards, grabbing Carlos's hand nervously. I glanced at him and blushed when he smiled nervously back at me.

"DOGS GET INTO THE STUDIO! NOWW!" the man yelled. Carlos grinned apologetically and I let go of his hand. I saw James smack Carlos upside the head as they walked into a room. I glanced at the man who was talking to Kelly. "You're Jenifer I assume I'm Gustavio." The man said. Nervously I nodded and he kept talking "Good ok today you are going to be Dancing, then Styled, and then you get to sing ok?" I nodded and Kelly grabbed my arm and said "OK let's go to Mr. X"

We walked into a dance room where a man was waiting. "OK Mr. X here's Jenifer." Kelly pushed me into the room and walked away. I grinned at the man and said "Hey what's up?" the man smiled and said "Nothing ok let's dance." After half an hour I was sweating through my Bra and Shorts, but I looked good. "You can dance, and you are serious, good I like you." Smiling I wave goodbye and walk into the "locker room" where I showered off quick, dried my hair and changed into sweatpants and a tank top knowing I was about to be "Changed".

I walked into the meeting room where Gustvaio and Kelly were waiting. "This is part 2 prepare to be changed." Gustavio said as I walked into the room. Frowning I glared at the wardrobe and make up women and said as the rushed towards me "Do not under any circumstances attempt to change me." The women smiled and they said "We wouldn't dream of it." The washed my hair and curled it, put make up on me, and made me wear jeans and a short sleeved T-Shirt. All in all I looked good, and I looked like myself so I like it.

I walked into the room where Gustavio was and stood there while the marketing team spoke. "This is Jay the newest pop, rock with a sprinkle of country." I stood there with a bored look and Gustavio looked at me with a frown saying "Why is she looking annoyed with us?" The marketing woman glanced at me and smiled saying "She is ushering in a new age, of music and attitude. She is a new age rock star."

"Well I like her, Ok Jay let's get this show on the road." Gustavio said and walked out. Kelly motioned for me to follow him and I caught up to him as he was walking into the sound booth where the boys were chilling. I waved to them as Gustavio marched to a seat. Grinning I sat on a stool in the back while Gustavio barked into the microphone "Dogs leave Jay is gonna sing." Kendal glanced at me and smirked "Aww Gustavio can we stay and listen to one song?" the boys were agreeing the background.

I was smiling as Gustavio nodded saying "OK one song." I waited until the boys were out of the sound both until I went in. I took a stool and pulled it up to the microphone. I smiled at Gustavio and started singing.

Grinning I finished with a bow. "Pitchy." Were Gustavio's only complaints but I shrugged and looked at the guys (Minus James who I was ignoring.) "What did you guys think?" I asked. They started talking but I couldn't hear because Gustavio turned off his mike and turned around and was talking to the guys.

Shrugging I pulled out my Ipod and started playing a game on it. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" A voice yelled. Scared I jumped a foot in the air and fell off of the stool. I jumped up and saw the boys laughing at me while Gustavio looked furious. I sat on my stool and said into the mike "Dude what the cheese was that all about?" Gustavio sighed and said "Sing, don't do anything else."

2 hours later I was stumbling into the Palmwoods lobby. Mumbling to myself I walked up to my room and grabbed my bathing suit and walked back down to the pool. I sprawled out on a chair with my Ipod. A couple seconds later I saw the guys, and Carlos plopped down next to me. "Hey Jenifer what's up?" He asked. I grinned at him and said "I'm physically exhausted and yet it was strangely fun." Carlos chuckled then stopped pure fear on his face "Crap here come the Jenifer's." I looked up to see three girls walk slow motion around the pool.

Carlos looked down and I leaned over to him saying "The Jenifer's are these the girls you were talking about this morning?" Carlos nodded and whispered "Jenifer—" but three voices cut him off. "What?" We looked up to see the three girls looking down at us, with a disgusted look I stood up saying "He, was talking to me." The three girls exchanged glances then the blond said "Do you want to be friends?"

I looked at Carlos who looked nervous, I flipped my hair and said "Friends? OHMYGOSH REALLY? No I wouldn't, goodbye." The girls exchanged a glance and the burnet said "Excuse me?" I rolled my eyes and said "your excused now if you don't mind I'm going to talk to Carlos." I sat back down and watch the three girls storm off.

I glanced at Carlos who looked happy and I said "What you thought I would go and be friends with people who obviously made you nervous." I flipped my hair and smiled until Carlos said "I have something to tell you that James told me and I'm not sure how you're going to react please don't kill me." I leaned forward and whispered "What?"

"Your James's Twin sister." Carlos said.
