A.N.:Yo, yo, yo, and here I am! Here is one of the crazy new stories coming from the insane brain of your pal, the electric phantom. I've been thinking, guys. TEP just isn't a cool acronym. Maybe you could call me the electric Emrys? I'd keep my profile name the same, but TEE is just a lot cooler.
ANYWAYS! This is a musical story! All the songs are from musicals! I've prewritten up to about halfway through chapter sixteen and I need ideas, so you guys can help! Here are the rules.
The song had to have been sung by characters. I love "Time of My Life" so much, but they're not singing!
My definition of "musical" is a story with at least three songs sung by characters to express their emotions. So, this way, Muppet movies count!
I have to be able to listen to the music and know the lyrics. It's dumb if I'm just guessing.
So, here's the first chapter! By the way, these events are their own single story and none of them will be dependant of one another.
Chapter One: For Good
Nineteen-year-old Jessica Ruiz walked through the airport alone. It would be her last night in New York for a long time. She was going to college and was about to hit the last plane out. When she got her bag, someone was calling her name.
"Jess! Jessica! Jessica Ruiz!" she spun around.
"Marcus, what are you doing here?"
"I've come to see you off. In three days, I'm moving, and this is my last chance to see you." he sniffed, then chuckled, "You're the only friend I've ever had."
"I've had so many friends." she said. The hurt look on his face made her continue, "But only one that mattered I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us grow the most if we let them. Well, I don't know if I believe that's true, but I know I'm who I am today because I knew you.
Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes a sun. Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood. Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but because I knew you, I have been changed for good.
"It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime. So, let me say before we part, so much of me is made from what I've learned from you. You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart. And no matter what way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend.
Like a ship pulled from its mooring by a wind of the sea. Like a seed dropped by a skybird in a distant wood. Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but because I knew you,"
"Because I knew you,"
"I have been changed for good."
"And just to clear the air, I ask forgiveness for the things you blame me for."
"But then, I guess we know there's blame to share."
"And none of it seems to matter anymore. Like a comet pulled from orbit (like a ship blown from its mooring) as it passes a sun (by the wind of the sea). Like a stream that meets a boulder (like a seed dropped by a skybird) halfway through the (in a distant) wood. Who can say if I've been changed for the better? I do believe I have been changed for the better,"
"And because I knew you,"
"Because I knew you,"
"I have been changed for good." they hugged for the very last time.
A.N.: So, tell me how it was in a review and leave some suggestions as to what other songs I should do!
