We got to the place of the Audition, which was the institute and dad parked the car where the rest have been parking theirs.
I came out the car and looked back to see many children too. To be honest I was so scared,I kept imagining the kind of voices that was going to come out of the mouth of them.
“You can do this!” My invisible Angel told me.
“Thanks dude.” I said aloud and brother looked at me.
“Can you stop doing that in public? That’s way too creepy.” He said and I nodded.
“You just don’t understand. They speak to me anytime, anywhere and I am forced to reply.” I said and he shut his eyes.
“Okay that’s enough. Enough of your delusions and let’s go get you kicked out of the stage!” He yelled and the other competitors looked at us.
“Oops.” He said.
“Alec mind the way you act this night. You don’t want to get started with me do you?” Father asked and he kept shut immediately.
“Now that’s why I love father taking care of the Alec issues. He is the best when it comes to shutting him up.” I said to Mom and she rolled her eyes.
“Listen up great singers! The Audition would commence very soon and we need you to be at your best to move into the institute.” A voice sounded from the Hornspeakers in front of the institute.
“Great singers.” I said to myself grinning and Alec scoffed.
“In your dreams.” He mumbled placing his head phone on his ear.
“A Young Lady would be out there to give you numbered cards. You will be called in according to the numbers on the paper, and guess what? You can come in with your loved ones, because only the judges will be on seat.” The voice further said and I loved the sound of it.
“Let’s get started Singers!” The voice said finally and I smiled.
The other participants began to move to the corner and I guess that’s where the woman was talking about was.
“You should go too. We would stay here.” Father said and I shook my head.
“What if i am later called. How would you know my own number? We are going together.” I said and Alec nodded.
“She is right.” He said and furrowed my brows looking at him.
“Thank you.” I said rather surprised.
“Okay then.” They said and we walked to the corner where the pass was been shared. I carried my shoe carefully making sure I don’t slip and fall.
Cos it would be a very terrible thing, especially when Alec is here to always ruin my moments.
I got on the line and the woman moved from the front sharing the pass to where I was. She handed the pass to me.
I thanked her and checked to see i was the 26th contestant on stand.
“Wow. I think we are going to be waiting here for sometime.” Mom said and I nodded.
“These shoe are killing me already.” I said trying to get rid of it.
“I will get your slippers. You can wear that for now and when you go in, you put on the heels.” Mom said and I nodded.
“Thanks Mom.” I said and she walked away while Alec was still busy on his video games.
I looked around for something to lean on before getting the shoe off but I saw nothing. So I decided to get it off like that.
I rose up my left leg hanging on my right leg. I reached for the shoe and was almost removing it when my right leg shook weakly and I fell…. Into the hands of someone.
“Oh my God. I am so sorry.” I said trying to gain my balance by kicking off the other shoe pair quickly. Immediately it was off, I looked at the person that prevented me from falling and I saw it was a young and very handsome man.
“Oh my… I am so so sorry.” I said standing away from him. He had shinning blazers on and I guessed maybe he was also a participant.
“Next time you come to an audition, you wear something that you feel comfortable in. Not something that will divert your attention when it comes to singing.” He said and I nodded feeling a little hurt and very embarrassed.
“I am sorry for falling on you. And this is the queue. The lady will give you a pass to go in.” I said and he scoffed.
“I have my pass. I will go in first.” He said walking away. I sighed looking around and I saw those participants at the back actually saw Everything.
“Is he one of us too? Oh my God is he so hot.” I heard the ladies say and I made a disgusted face.
“But then I knew they were saying the absolute truth. Maybe he was the first to come here and got the pass, that’s why he is the first to go in.” I thought shrugging my shoulders.
“Here, have this.” Mother said and I wore the slippers on my bare foot.
“Mom can you give me your shoe for the Audition. I don’t want any distractions when I get on stage and this shoe will surely distract me.” I said and she nodded.
“You know I told you not to wear it.” She said removing her shoe.
“I know and I am sorry. you were right and I promise not to question you again. So please don’t mock me.” I said and she smiled.
“I can’t. At least my shoe isn’t as high as yours. This will do, luckily for you we wear the same size.” She said smiling.
“Thank you mother. You are a life saver.” I said Happily removing the slippers and wearing hers.
“Ahhh much better.” I said in relieve shutting my eyes
