Chapter 2: In Hot Water

Ignasius Vliegher

God! School went fast! And luckily it was! And everyone was there again! I have to rush to home this time. Although it's my first time! But I have to because Soraya and me are going to a music producer where we will song for him.

'Come on, Ignasius,' I say in my head while I'm riding on my bicycle towards the buss-station.

Two hours later...

Soraya is standing in front of the building where the man with all the cash must be. I throw my bike on the ground and run towards Soraya. I inhale continuously and short!

'Can't... breath... any... more...,' I say in pieces.

'You're late,' says my niece and she takes me by the arm. She pushes me trough the doors and we enter a big hallway. It's all made out of glass like the one we saw when we wanted to look for who gave the pictures to the newspaper... In our adventure! It was an adventure.

We take the elevator and we reach floor 20. We rush to a big, dark brown door and Soraya opens it. A man with grey hair and a little moustache is sitting in an arm chair. He ticks with his left foot on the ground; a sign of impatience.

'Start,' says the man with his low voice... and a bit rusty too!

Soraya and me take place in front of him and the music begins. I know this: it's the song that we wrote for a party when we came back from Germany.

'Come on swinging, come on dancing
join us, come along, we have fun for two
It's a very good idea, whatever you do, it's okay,

come and turn your shoes mad, go a bit crazy

everyone has fun, fun, fun, everyone goes crazy,

come and do very crazy, go on a roll

we celebrate a party so let the whole lot just spinning,

come with us rocking and bring your friends along
HEY!
REFRAIN:
Come on swinging, come on dancing,

are you celebrating with us

the party is not done yet

don't say no, but say yes, hey

join us, come along, yeah yeah, we have fun for two

Feel the tickles in your stomach, on our cool crazy party,

everyone goes crazy, jumps and springs

all the guys are going for it, all the lights go on a loose,

all girls in the mood, that's very very good

we celebrate a party so let the whole lot just spinning,

come with us rocking and bring your friends along
REFRAIN:
Come on swinging, come on dancing,

are you celebrating with us

the party is not done yet

don't say no, but say yes, hey

join us, come along, yeah yeah, we have fun for two
jump jump, jump jump, jump jump
we celebrate a party so let the whole lot just spinning,

come with us rocking and bring your friends along
REFRAIN 4x'

'So...,' begins Soraya, '...what do you think, sir?'

The man waits and waits and waits... he just looks at us. Then he begins to laugh and his big belly begins to go up and down fast and faster. 'I love it! You'll be a hit!'

'Thanks,' I say. 'But we want to live a normal life. You know; like a double life.'

'I couldn't agree more. Kids love mysterious things so why wouldn't they love a secret?' says- apparently- our manager. 'Now all you go to do is to sing, have fun, make records, learn and study. Then you'll be fine in this world.'

'Can we go now, because our parents are waiting for dinner?' asks Soraya.

'Of course,' says the man. 'Go and have fun, because you'll be the best singers we'll ever have!'

Soraya and I go out of the building and we scream a bit when we enter the free world again.

'Did you hear that? We're awesome!' yells Soraya. 'I can scream it from the roofs!'

'Do that, then my ears will be safe,' I reply. 'Can you stop the shouting. Because my ears hurt.'

'Oops,' says my niece. 'Sorry!'

'It's alright!'

Soraya De Jeunnest

'We should tell Malvina about this!'

'Yes, we should!' says my nephew.

That night at home...

I just can't wait to send an e-mail to Malvina so she knows about it. Maybe she already knows it... Maybe Ignasius sent her a neo-mail on . I can't believe that they still do that! Although it's a lot less with Ignasius. He was obsessed by it for a while, but I guess that he's over it now! Malvina on the other hand is still busy with it.

I send an e-mail in case that Ignasius didn't. I can't wait until she replies. I close my laptop and go to my bed. It was an exhausting day. I'm glad that I can sleep now.

I look up from my bed to the window and I see something round, shiny, the glow around it - it's like the light is tickling me – and I can't help it anymore.


Again a short chapter... Ah! HATE IT! But I wanted to give another chapter until I can really begin with the story line. I hope that the readers will wait for it... You will be surprised if you do... Well, I hope you do...

Greetings!
