Chapter Six

"This next song was written by Alex and Myself. I hope you guys like it." I said. I looked into the audience and found Max's eyes and sung.

Merrily we fall
Out of line, out of line
I'd fall anywhere with you
I'm by your side

Swinging in the rain, humming melodies
We're not going anywhere until we freeze

I'm not afraid, anymore
I'm not afraid

Forever is a long time
But I wouldn't mind spending it
By your side

Carefully we'll place for our destiny
You came and you took this heart, and set it free
Every word you write or sing is so warm to me, so warm to me
I'm torn, I'm torn to be right where you are

I'm not afraid, anymore
I'm not afraid

Forever is a long time
But I wouldn't mind spending it
By your side

Tell me every day I get to wake up to that smile
I wouldn't mind it at all
I wouldn't mind it at all

You so know me
Pinch me gently
I can hardly breathe

Forever is a long, long time
But I wouldn't mind spending it
By your side

Tell me every day I get to wake up to that smile
I wouldn't mind it at all
I wouldn't mind it at all

My eyes never left his for a second. I smiled. I looked at Alex. And she winked at me. Maybe I could risk it. We played a few more songs and our cover of billionaire by Travis McCoy and Bruno Mars. Once our gig was done we got paid and went back to the substation. Everyone was glowing from the excitement. We walked in my mom and I stopped in our tracks.

Jerry saw the man sitting at a table. "Sir can I help you? The substation is closed."

"What are you doing here?" I hear my mom ask. Oh god. I think.

"Sarah. I can explain." He said walking up to my mom with his hands in the air. My mom wrapped her arms around me and started backing away.

"Leave." My mom said. I closed my eyes tight hoping tears wouldn't fall. "Leave now before I call the cops!" She yelled. Everyone was confused.

Theresa walked next to her friend putting her hand on her shoulder. "Kids take Rae upstairs. Now." Max already on it, grabbed my hand dragging me up the spiraling steps. I looked back and saw my mother wide eyes also on the verge to tears. Once all of us were upstairs I were upstairs I was bombarded with questions.

"Who was he?" "Why was your mom yelling?" "Why are you guys crying?"

"Enough!" Max yelled. "Can't you see questioning her isn't helping? Gosh." Max again grabbed my hand and led me to the terrace. We both looked out at the view.

"So... Do you want to talk about it?" He asked.

I sniffled "I just… I want to leave…" I said. Letting a tear fall.

"Raley?" Max asked. I turned my head. "If… If I tell you something. Can you promise to never tell a soul?" He asked.

I looked him in the eye. "Of course." I said wiping my face.

He sighed. "I'm a wizard."

I looked at him and laughed. "You really do know how to lighten a mood."

"No I'm serious." He said turning towards me.

"Max…" I said shaking my head.

"I can prove it."

I just shook my head and nodded for him to continue.

He pulled a wand out of his pants which I won't even go into. But he did a swirl of the wand and mumbled a few words and suddenly it lit up and a carpet appeared.

"Whoa." I closed my eyes and shook my head then opened them back up. "How is that possible?"

"I'm a wizard. Here" He sat on the carpet and started rising up. And held his hand out for me to get on. "It's okay." I got on and suddenly we were flying. I grabbed onto his arm for my dear life. I got a little comfortable and loosened my grip.

"So tell me about this whole wizard thing."
