Faking It

Sonny's POV

I had just finished the tooth fairy sketch, which I did amazingly by the way, who would have known that I could play Tawni so well? In fact it was even kind of fun to be someone a little more selfish without the guilt on my shoulders. Now I was watching something more disturbing than the Titanic, or someone chewing with their mouth open, something so much more tragic than a tornado crashing through a town, I was watching the girl who looked like me completely butcher my Sicky Vicky sketch.

"Ew!" The brunette shouted as she read a line about internal bleeding, I could not help but laugh despite myself. She was so adorable.

"That's your line." One of the producers said in an agitated voice at the young girl. Wait, that young girl is me? She better get her act together I don't want to lose my job because of this!

"Oh." She responded before stretching her words out despondently. "That's uh, so not cool."

I crossed my arms over my chest and glanced out to the crowd, all of them wearing confused faces. There was absolutely no clapping, no screams, the signs with her name on them were lowered and some of my fans were even shouting out "Boos." 'Gosh I hope that I'll still have a job after all of this… She could at least try… who am I kidding it's Tawni she never tries…'

The brunette girl made her way toward me with that creepy smile on her face. 'I really have to learn how to smile less creepily… wow…' "So, how did I do?" She asked me excitedly.

"Didn't you hear the boos? You did horrible! How could you do that to me? You said you were going to try." I responded in that high-pitched whiney voice, it seemed to be the only tone that the blonde had.

She laughed and rolled her brown eyes placing a hand on her hip as she struck a pose, one that definitely did not look normal on my body. She was doing a terrible job portraying me. "Like I care about that horribly disgusting sketch." She spat sarcastically, scoffing. "I meant how did I do, as in how did you do?"

I raised an eyebrow at her in disbelief. "Of course that is what you care about? You are over there making me look like a fool and all you care about is yourself?"

"Pretty much." She replied with a shrug of her shoulders.

"Gahhh!" I groaned out in that annoying way that I had once found cute, there were a lot of things that I had once liked about Tawni that I was learning that I no longer felt drawn to. She didn't care about me at all it seemed and that was enough to turn me off. Though remembering seeing her naked body in the mirror, well my naked body in the mirror earlier reminded me of exactly how attracted I was to her. There had to be a nice person deep inside. 'No pun intended.' "Of course it is, well you did great. Though I can't say the same for myself, but thanks for actually trying to make this work." With that I started off the stage running away from the selfish girl trapped in my body, I didn't want to look at her for another moment.

"Wait! Sonny!" She shouted, I heard her but I didn't turn around. I was so tired of being bossed around and taken advantage of. I was tired of doing everything for everyone else; and I was already tired of pretending to be Tawni when I just wanted to be me!

Tawni's POV

It must have been this innocent and sweet body that I was trapped inside of making me feel these crazy things, these insane feelings that I had never felt before. Guilt, caring, compassion, it was like when I was Tawni Hart I had a shield from these things, or perhaps I was just accustomed to burying them and ignoring them while Sonny wore her heart on her sleeve. Either way it was a terrible feeling and I just wanted it to go away. But how do you make a guilty conscience go away? I just didn't know the answer to that question that had been nagging me since I saw the hurt flash across my own beautiful blue eyes.

"God stupid Sonny… with her stupid positivity and her stupid—"

"How's your food Sonny?" Chad's voice interrupted my train of thoughts as well as the conversation I was having with myself and I turned to glare at him. Why was he calling me—Oh that's right. God if I want to make it up to her and clear my guilt then I should probably act like she would.

"It's great, I just love chicken knuckles." I said with slight sarcasm though I forced one of those large smiles onto my face as I looked into his eyes. He was looking at me strangely.

"I bet." He responded lifting up his plate holding up the lobster he was eating, intentionally trying to shove it in my face. Why the hell did Sonny put up with this? It made no sense to me, but I guess she also puts up with my shit… She is just a nice girl. Be a nice girl. Nice girl. "I've never tried them, too busy eating the amazing lobster, steak, and pie. But I'm sure they're great." He smirked deviously causing my smile to fall as I glared into his eyes.

"You know, you are such a selfish jerk. You think that you can say whatever you want as long as you flash me that charming smile, well not today! Move out of my way." With that I bumped him with my hips nearly knocking him over, causing a look of shock to cross his face. Obviously he wasn't used to Sonny standing up to him.

Standing to the side he laughed sarcastically, holding up his lobster and wiping off his suit. "Fine."

"Fine!" I shouted out loudly and angrily as I reached out getting some of the french-fries, turning my back to him.

"Good!"

"I already said fine!" I shouted back which caused him to raise an eyebrow as he walked around catching my eyes with his shining blues. If I didn't know him better I would agree with the rest of America that he was a handsome man, but his personality destroyed that. 'God why is he looking at me like I'm crazy… oh yeah… I'm supposed to be Sonny…' Forcing a large goofy grin onto my face I picked up my plate and said in the most polite voice I could muster "Have a nice day!" With that I ran away only looking back once more to flash the confused boy a smile. I hoped that was something that the cheery girl would do.
