This is a short chapter but I felt bad for leaving you with no ending so her is a small ending. The songs used are: Just a Kiss - Lady Antabellum & Dear Father - Sum 41
The stage was set up with flickering lights, and sweat causing spot lights. I grip Flor's hand as I catch sight of my father.
"You ready?" He asks
Flashing him a smirk and positioning my mic, I let the band go on center stage as I stay in the wing.
The music begins and I quietly drag Jess from the wings with me to center stage all the while singing,
"Lying here with you so close to me,
It's hard to fight these feelings,
when it feels so hard to breathe.
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile."
I have her stand between Flor and me while he sings his next line,
"I never open up to anyone
So hard to hold back
When I'm holding you in my arms"
He pulls her close to him and I lock eyes with a somewhat relieved, Beck.
Together we finish the song,
"We don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright with just a kiss goodnight."
Almost before we end the last word, the PDA on stage went to a whole new extreme.
"Well, while Flor here does other things with his mouth, the band and I would like to sing a song to our new teacher, Ryan West, guess now is as good a time as ever to let you understand the dreams you tried to kill. Go on sit back and watch, while I show all of them what you could never understand." I say staring daggers at the man.
Address this letter to Dear Father
I know you as complete unknown
I guess it's better you don't bother
All our truths should be left alone
Be left alone
Be left alone
I learned the things you never showed me, took the chances you'd have blown, and to this day the one and only you remain a complete unknown. Complete unknown, Complete unknown.
So many years have been ignored, you've been gone without a trace. I'm getting used to knowing you're just a name without a face. Without a face,Without a face."
With that, I walk off the stage into Beck's arms, completely leaving that scared little girl behind me.
