De-motivation

Last Chapter: This had better be good date

Carl held Denise's hand as they walked into the new ballroom. A disco ball was hanging from the ceiling, a large buffet table at the side of the room, a batch of chairs at the other side. Denise opened her mouth and Carl grinned

"This is awesome!" Denise exclaimed and Carl was just nodding

"I was hoping you'd say that... now, would you treat me to a dance?" Carl grinned, bowing elegantly. Denise face-palmed, grinning all the while.

"Why of course, fine sir." Denise laughed, and the two walked into the dance floor.

"Wait... isn't that?" Carl asked himself as he saw many people he did not expect to be in this room at all. Porter, Jane, Alex, Serge, and a load more students from Bennet were dancing around.

"And this isn't ballroom music... we're in a disco aren't we?" Denise was shaking her head

"Ah... slight error there..." Carl grinned sheepishly "Really, Denise, I'm so sorry! I must of got it muddled... I really fail, don't I?" Carl looked down at the floor and Denise stopped shaking her head. She looked at her boyfriend, smiling

"What are you talking about? We can still have a good time! Oh and I think the band's about to... wait... oh no... not them!" Denise yelled, as she saw a group of people walking up the stairs. A gothic singer, a trench coat clad guitarist, a lumbering drummer and a smug bassist. TAB.

"Thank you all for coming! We are TAB!" Meph shouted and a loud applause echoed out. Gigz spoke next.

"Now, we're gonna give you two songs. Rubix, please enlighten this fine audience as to what they will be!" Gigz yelled to the bassist, who simply pushed his sunglasses up his nose.

"The first..." Rubix paused and Skully did a small drum roll "Is just a disco song for all of you!" Rubix finished and the crowd cheered.

"And the second..." Skully did his drum roll again "Goes out to a fine young couple. Yes, you know who you are!" Rubix yelled and Carl grinned at Denise. Denise opened and closed her mouth.

"They're gonna sing for us?" Denise looked shocked

"Yep. We're gonna sing for you!" Meph shouted. "But first... lets get this party underway shall we, friends!" The whole dance floor erupted into applause as Gigz started to strum his guitar.

"This is the rock and roll remix of... oh, you'll see!" Meph yelled as the bassist and the drummer joined in giving a smooth beat.

"Party rock is in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time. And we gonna make you lose your mind. Everybody just have a good time." The dancers started... well dancing and cheering and the beat started picking up

"Party rock is in the house tonight! Everybody just have a good time! And we can make you lose your mind! We just wanna see ya..." The whole band chimed in this time

"Shake that!" They yelled into their mics and started playing a sweet solo. The audience started cheering. A tall, pale skinned man detached himself from the audience. A large, red eye was painted on his forehead. Carl stared at him. Something was different about him... but who cared, he had a song to dance to! Rubix started rapping on the mic

"In the club! Party rock! Looking for your girl? She's with the jock. Non stop when we're in the spot. Booty moving weight like she on the block. Where's the drink? I gots to know, tight jeans, tattoo 'cause I'm rock and roll. Half black, half white, domino, game the money. Op-a-doe!" Rubix finished and Meph started singing again.. well half singing half rapping

"Yeah! I'm running through the halls like I'm Drano. I've got that devilish flow, rock 'n' roll, no halo. We party rock! Yeah, that's my crew that I'm repping, on the rise to the top. No lead in our zeppelin! " They all started singing the chorus again and this time the audience chimed in as well.

"Party rock is in the house tonight! Everybody just have a good time! And we can make you lose your mind! Everybody just have a good time!" The repeated again except with a different end. "Party rock is in the house tonight! Everybody just have a good time! And we can make you lose your mind! We just wanna see ya..."

"Shake that!" Sung the audience and then Gigz simply sang

"Every day I'm shuffling!" An instrumental followed with Gigz putting in a quick "Shuffling!" Every few seconds. Rubix started to rap again, and every one groaned

"Step up fast... and be the first girl to make me blow this cash. We get money, don't be mad. Now stop... hating is bad." The whole band started singing again

"One more shot for us! Another round! Please fill up my cup! Don't mess around! We just wanna see, you shake it now! Now you wanna be, you're naked now!" The whole audience started singing with inspiration from the band

"Party rock is in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time! And we can make you lose your mind! Everybody just have a good, good, good time!" The band stopped and the audience went wild. Carl walked over to Porter.

"Hey, Carl. How's Denise? Enjoying herself?" Porter asked, grinning his usual casual grin.

"Yeah, she's fine. Porter?" Carl asked his friend

"Hmmm..." Porter replied, waiting for Carl to continue

"Who's that... guy over there?" Carl pointed the strange pale guy from earlier.

"He's TAB's manager." Porter answered

"TAB have a manager?" Carl looked quizzical

"Yes. His name's Shockwave, but everyone calls him Shock-Drop upstairs. Dunno why, it was just a name he got put to." Porter was staring at Shock-Drop all the while. Carl stared at him too and got a good look at what he looked like. He looked older than the band. He was tall, like Meph, and had long, dark hair. A little unshaven beard was on the only facial hair he contained. He had amber eyes, and a sly smile played on his lips. He wore a grey, heavy looking jacket and jeans. He wore a T-shirt that read "Be afraid of the dark.". The strangest thing about him was that red eye painted on his forehead. It seemed to serve no purpose other than to make him look cooler. He sat with his hands resting in his lap and was watching something intently. Carl followed his eyes and smiled. He was watching Jane. The angel apparently had a bit of a thing for the red-head.

"I'm gonna go get acquainted with Mr. Manager." Carl nodded at Porter and Porter nodded back.

"Ok, I'll go tell Denise where you are. She should be Ok with that." Porter smiled and Carl sat down next to Shock-Drop

"Yes?" Asked the manager, gruffly

"Name's Carl Montclaire." Carl extended his hand "Nice to meet ya!" Shock-Drop just stared at him, his red eye creeping Carl out a little

"The Shock-Drop. Thought judging by the look on your face... you already know that." Shock-Drop replied, swivelling back round in his chair, staring at Jane again

"Your band's doing great, man. You should be proud." Carl smiled and Shock-Drop glared at him

"I have no interest in such trivial drivel." Shock-Drop snapped, angrily. Carl stared at his arm. Something was happening to it... a small cannon popped out of no-where startling the Bennet student so much he fell out of his chair.

"Woah... what's with the cannon dude?" Carl asked from his position on the floor

"Reminiscent of time's gone by. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have important business to do." Shock-Drop pulled his grey jacket up around himself and slumped in the chair.

"Charming..." Carl muttered to himself as he walked away.

"Carl..." Denise smiled at him and Carl grinned back

"Yeah?" He asked her and Denise simply pointed to the stage. Meph was tossing his mic from hand to hand, nodding his head.

"Guys. This is our last song for tonight." The singer shrugged and the audience all let out an:

"Awwwwwww..."

"But... we have one last song, as I just said. So... without further ado... introducing Rubix on the sax!" Meph yelled and the audience cheered at the old bassist "We sing to you... Hey Cupid, a song written to represent... Carl Montclaire and his date Denise Simmons!" Meph yelled

"Hit it!" Skully yelled from the back of the stage and started playing his drums. Gigz joined in with his guitar. Rubix started playing the main tune on his sax. Denise grinned at her date. This was the best time of her life.

"I never knew that I could feel like this, yeah my heart is like a warm sunshine.

I got your sunlight beating down on me, from the corners of your perfect smile.

So if you feel like your love ain't strong enough, I could be the one to steer it up.

Like a beat I'll drop and knock it up...

'Cause when I saw you... I knew!

My heart turned upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing!

Upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing, yeah!"

Meph sang, the band backing him up with beats along the way. Jane turned and saw Carl and Denise kissing.

"Wow..." She smiled to herself as Meph started the next verse

"I could never stand back

And make you feel... lonely, lonely, lonely!

And if you're ever feeling down I can be beside you,

put your trust on me!

So if you feel like your love ain't strong enough, I could be the one to steer it up.

Like a beat I'll drop and knock it up...

'Cause when I saw you... I knew!

My heart turned upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing!

Upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing, yeah!"

"This is the best date... ever..." Denise smiled at her new boyfriend. Carl grinned at her.

"Meh, I guess..." He smiled and the two kissed again. Meph nodded as Skully started drumming out a steady beat.

"Hey Cupid, come along and wash away all the rain

Put the sunlight and love in her heart just for me.

I've been acting like I should.

You know, I been good. She's all I think about all day!

Hey Cupid, can't you see she's the one, that's enough

Not a minute goes by when I don't think about it.

So please, hook me up!

Don't put my heart on ice, don't let me roll the dice

I need her sure thing right now.

My heart turned upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing!

Upside down, it took a spin around.

'Cause the girl I found, she got me off the ground.

And I'm wrapped around her finger like a diamond ring, yeah.

Cupid let me get her, 'cause she makes me sing, yeah!" Meph finished. The audience were silent. Then the whole room erupted into applause.

"Thank you... we're TAB. Good night!" Meph and his band high fived and they vanished in a flash of light.

"Carl... thanks for a great evening." Denise grinned and the two kissed for the last time that night. They were together now... but what could happen next?

Well folks that's the end of De-motivation. Keep a look out for the sequel. The songs used were Party Rock anthem and Hey Cupid. A big thank you to Lord Shockwave for giving me the idea to use Hey Cupid and allowing me to use him in this fic. Thank you so much man!
