Daniel walked in the studio and closes the door behind him.
“what are you doing here?” Daniel asked. Great he recognizes me.
“I.. I.. . Came here to sign in my name for the supernova contest” I said standing up.
“oh..” he said..
I’m in a studio with Daniel Anderson, the world’s Daniel Anderson, why am I not happy or psyched like others will be.
“have you by any chance seen Erick?” he asked calmly.
“yeah, he said I should wait here, that he’d get us breakfast” I explained and Daniel nod and said nothing. I looked at him and glanced away , slowly taking back my seat. “looks Like I’ll wait here for him too” Daniel said and sat down on a chair beside the wall, a bit far from mine.
I turned to my bag and pulled my phone out of it. And suddenly I texted Annie.
**you won’t believe what’s happening now** I pressed sent and sighed, she won’t reply me she’s in school. My phone buzzed and I was surprised Annie texted me back .
**what’s happening that I won’t believe** Annie replied and I imagined her voice in a sarcastic way.
** I’m sitting in a room with your favourite idol** . I texted. And waited for a while before getting back a reply.
** wait.. Hold on .. You missed school and now you’re texting about being in a room with my favorite idol.. Are you talking about Daniel Anderson???…**
**yes** I texted.
**i don’t believe you, take a picture of him** Annie replied and I gasped, this girl is crazy
** I can’t ** .
** why? Take a picture of him and I’ll believe you **
I sighed and head straight to my camera, turned off the shutter sound and slowly took a picture of Daniel looking down his phone.
I took four pictures of him before sending it to her.
** holy moly, you’re right, it’s my Daniel!! Oh sh*t it’s the Spanish teacher, I’ll chat you later and you’ll tell me everything** she sent and I gave her a thumb up sticker.
The last thing I want to do is tell Annie everything.
“so July, right?” I heard Daniel’s voice and I raised up my head to look at him, he’s talking to me??
“uhm… It’s.. It’s June..” I said and he nods.
“yeah, I promised Erick I’d apologize to you , so here it is I’m sorry” he breathed out and I paused.
Why is he apologizing.
“uh.. Uhh.. Okay..” I said and looked away. I don’t understand why he’s apologizing but anyway apology accepted.
We both remain quiet and seriously it was pretty awkward for me.. Well he’s a celebrity and I’m sitting almost close to him and.. I love celebrities, any kind, but this one sitting in here, no matter how popular he is, he doesn’t seem that popular TO ME.
his phone started to ring and I was shocked when I heard Erick’s song playing, he picked the phone before Erick’s Voice could sing.
“I’m not there, don’t look for me okay!!” Daniel said into the phone and I tried not to look or listen to whoever he was talking to. But how could I not, when it’s just the two of us inside this place.
“I’m tired, I’ll continue tomorrow, do you know you have a problem” Daniel stated angrily into the phone digging his fingers into his blue hair.
“good you Know, now leave me the Fuck alone and tell fandango to go home, I’ve got all the moves right, it’s just the last part–no no see Nate you’re the worst manager ever note that—-and try you won’t find me” Daniel said lastly before hanging up and dropping his phone, he turned to me and I looked away immediately, oh Jeez, tell me he didn’t See Me looking at him.
I bite the inside of my cheeks nervously and started to pull my finger, the door suddenly opened and Erick walked inside.
“okay I brought breakfast and ice– Erick paused seeing Daniel.
Oh boy, how I am so glad to see Erick, being in a room with Daniel is the worst. I gave Erick a thank you look even when he wasn’t looking at me but at Daniel.
~^•^~ ERICK’S POV ~^•^~
I bought breakfast thinking I’d eat alone with June, but when I turned, to my surprise I saw Daniel sitting at the corner of the room. What is he doing here??.
Seeing me he smiled and stood up, “what are you doing here?” I asked and Daniel glance at June then at me.
“like I don’t come here everyday, I got tired of dance practice and I heard from someone my best friend is in DH, so I had to think of where you could be. And I know this is the only place you’d be cause we used to hang out here like all the time, but then I met her and I know you’d be around”. Daniel explained and I looked at the foods in my hand,
Oh he wants to hang out with me. Well too bad he’ll be hanging out with us. I know June would be freaking happy about being with a celebrity, oh.. I remember she doesn’t like Daniel.
“well Dan, the good news is, I bought enough ice-cream” I smiled at him.
“well my mouth is watering already” Daniel said sitting down.
“and June, I bought you a hamburger” I said giving her and she slowly took it from me and let out a small thanks.
“and I also bought you a smoothie” I said and gave it her.
“and Daniel, we’re sharing this, good thing I bought two spoons” I said and sat opposite Daniel, the ice-cream inbetween us and before we know it, we’ve started with the ice-cream.
It felt like old times with me and Daniel, when he was still a trainee, he would escape dance class and I’ll text him about meeting here and we would both come here without anyone knowing, and we’d talk and laugh about everything going on in our lives, not until he became so popular and started traveling the world to sing, truly I missed him .
We both started to talk about fandango, the crazy dance teacher my dad hired for Daniel years ago, he’s half Mexican and half Canadian. He doesn’t get tired of dancing and he likes to praise himself so much. Daniel and I talked about laughing hard and then I remembered June was also inside the room. I glance at her and saw as she minded her business and slowly ate and chew on her ham, so she’s been sitting there for some time without saying anything, if it were to be just the two of us in this room, she would have yelled and insulted me with everything I do. It’s because Daniel is in here with us. I love her girl manners.
“so June.” Daniel called and I surprisingly turned to him.
What does he want to say to her, and calling her like he’s known her for ages.
“do you think you have a chance at the competition?” Daniel asked and she nods quickly, her bouncy long hair nodding with her.
“why wouldn’t she have a chance at the competition, cause she would embarrass me if she embarrasses herself” I added with a smile, June looked at me. She wanted to say something, but she couldn’t, so instead she just glared at me. I gave her another smile and turned to Daniel and the ice-cream, but suddenly June’s voice stopped me from taking my spoon.
“uhm.. Erick, I’ll be back I need to use the restroom” .
I turned to see June dropping her food and standing up.
“do you want me to come show you, remember you don’t know your way around DH” I said.
“don’t worry, I’ll find my own way” she smiled before unlocking the door and walking out. I couldn’t help but laugh and turned to the ice-cream.
“so that’s why you like her right? The gentle and quiet type unlike Emilia” Daniel said after a few minutes .
“oh when you talk of gentle and quiet girls, you do not add June in that list cause she’s a complete opposite” I said.
“so you mean she’s been pretending to be quiet all this while?” Daniel asked.
“why?” he laughed.
“cause you’re here and she kind of doesn’t like you ..” I said and Daniel brows arched .
“what do you mean, she doesn’t like me?? Every single girl in this city loves me and I guess she’s also pretending to not like me and besides I’ve apologized to her like I promised to, so what’s with her hate?” Daniel asked and I looked up at him.
“you won’t understand, and I’m not ready to explain” I said and scoop another spoon of ice-cream.
“okay, so let’s talk about you, I heard you’re finally going to be a singer here?” Daniel said.
“you heard or my dad told you cause you’re like his second child” I said with an eye roll, my dad loves Daniel to the core. Cause Daniel is everything he wanted for me. But I don’t care.
“yeah well he told me , but seriously Erick this is what you should have done a long time ago” Daniel bickered
“well am doing it now and it doesn’t matter, I did it because of June anyway, she just kept pressuring me, I had to agree with my dad” I explained.
“even though I don’t really like her. I’d say she’s more clever and wiser than you, at least she knows what’s good and bad, your head just filled up with junk. She’s a great influence on you, maybe hanging out with her, some of her smartness will rub off on you” Daniel blabbed and I gave him another eye roll.
“remember Anderson, I’m older than you, you don’t talk to me that way, and maybe you think you’re wise, but I bet June’s more wiser than you too, hang out with her and you’ll be shocked of how matured she can be.. But don’t hang out with her or even go close to her, she’s mine” I said as I dropped my spoon, I’m already tired eating this with Daniel.
“I don’t care if she’s yours or whatever, I can’t hang out with someone like her, she’s not Daniel Anderson’s type” Daniel said and I rolled my eyes for the hundredth time t it hurt
“yeah, like Emilia’s better than her, hang out with her for just a day and you’ll fall in love with her” I said daydreaming of the days I’ve spent with June.
“yeah I doubt that” Daniel said and the door opened and June walked in,
Quietly she sat down on her chair and grabbed her breakfast, without saying a word to anyone.. Daniel gave me a weird look and I was about to say something when June’s phone rang, interrupting me, she shyly looked at Daniel and I before picking up the phone.
“yes..” she said into the phone with her teeth gritted.
“no.. I. Can’t.. Goodbye” she said and hanged up .
“let me guess, Annie?” I said and she nods, cause aside me, Annie is the only one who calls her.
“what is she asking for?” I asked.
“uh.. Nothing” June replied nervously. .
“I have to go home, I’m full” June said standing up.
“what? It’s just 12am there’s still plenty of time, why do you want to leave now” I asked standing up too.
“well… I’m.. Kind of bored and..—
“okay, we can do something fun” I added.
“it’s because of me right?” Daniel chipped in and June slowly nod.
“don’t worry, and it was nice hanging out with both of you, even though you didn’t talk much, and tell no one you met me” Daniel said, smiled and walked out,
June eyes followed Daniel as he closed the door and suddenly she breathed out.
“finally he’s gone.” she said sitting back on the chair she stood up.
“wait, are you scared of him or something?” I asked.
“no.. It’s just weird being around him” she said moving her glossy hair back.
“by the word weird, how do you mean?” I asked.
“what else do you understand by the word weird” she rolled at eyes at me. There the old June is back.
I smiled and she turned to me.
“why are you smiling?” she asked.
“why won’t I smile,” .
“ugh, you’re so annoying” she blurted.
“just because I smiled, I became annoying?” I asked but she ignored me and grabbed her bag
“I need to go home and start getting ready for the competition” she said and was about to walk out, but I blocked the door.
“the competition is not until next week and you’re already getting psyched about it” I said and she sighed.
“what else do you want me to do?”.
“today might be the last day you might see me, cause my training starts tomorrow and I don’t live with you guys anymore.. So..” I explained
“so..?” she leaned her head closer.
“let’s hang out a bit more” I suggested.
“hang out where, in here?, I’m getting stuffed in here already.” she said and I nod. “well I do have the key to my new house and I haven’t checked it out, but we can both go there together and check it out” I smirked.
“it’s not like I’m gonna live there, but sure, whatever” she said and I smiled.
June and I walked out of DH and immediately the wind starts to take control of her hair, covering her face, she stopped walking trying to move her hair back, but it just kept getting worse.
“dang it” she muttered angrily and her hair got in her mouth
I stepped in front of her and helped her move it back,
“th–thanks..” she stutter when her face was free of her hair.
“yeah I know, I’m your hero” I teased and she rolled her eyes.
I boded a taxi and we both got in, I told the driver my destination and he started to drive.
“gosh, I feel so tired” June said after a few minutes of silence between the two of us.
“really? Is going in and out of DH making you tired?” I asked and she nods.
“that means you’re a weakling, are you sure you’ll be able to pull this competition off?” I asked and she nods “why not, it’s my dream and I don’t play with dreams”. She said and I smiled, this is why I like her, she talks and thinks like a baby sometimes but when it gets serious, she gets serious.
The taxi got slower and then finally stopped. “we’re here” I announced as I got out of the taxi, before June.
I payed the driver and turned to the building before us.
I believed I saw number thirty three in the house address, but I don’t understand why I’m seeing thirty two on the building in front of me instead of thinking and keeping June waiting, I checked my messages with my dad and saw thirty two. Oh I guess I was wrong.
“Lets go in June, it’s this one” I said walking in the building.
“are you sure?” June asked
“yeah” I replied as I got close to the door.
I held out my key and tried to unlock the door, and when it unlocked I turned to June.
“see.. Told you it’s this one”. She shrugged as I pushed the door open and walked in.
“whoa, it’s huge!” I heard June’s voice behind me.
I took a pretty good look around the living room, not to wide check, a fire place, check, and huge windows, check. Exactly the kind of place I like.
“it’s not that huge” I said.
“yeah for you it’s not” she said sarcastically as she dropped her bag on the furry couch.
“c’mon let’s check the rooms upstairs” I said pulling her hand.
“there’s more?” she asked excitedly.
“like you said its huge, and it can’t be huge for nothing” I replied.
We got upstairs, checked the rooms, the bathroom and June just kept gasping complimenting everything then surprisingly we saw an empty room, with only a blue guitar at the center.
“hey… I know that guitar” June said walking into the room.
“isn’t this Daniel’s?” she asked, making me walk into the room too. And yes it was Daniel’s cause his name was signed there.
“why is it here?” June asked.
“no idea” I said as I walked around the guitar to find a note stuck at the back of the guitar. I pulled the note and read it to myself.
~~from me (Daniel) to you as an appreciation to our friendship~~
Okay this dude is way too sappy.
“Can I see?” June asked referring to the note, so I gave it to her.
“Awwn, so Daniel can be this nice?” June asked and he nods. “he’s way too nice and that’s a problem” I said taking the note from her.
“he’s nice and that’s a problem, are you hearing yourself” June barked and I sighed, “you won’t understand”.
June sat on my bed with my phone, I had no idea of what she’s doing but she’s making me sit beside her with Daniel’s guitar in my hand. And before I knew it she walked out of the bed and held the phone to her face.
“okay Erick, get ready,” she said.
Is she taking a picture of me??
“get ready for what?” I asked.
“you’re going to sing, with the guitar and I’m going to take a video of you doing so” she said about to count to three when I snitched the phone.. My phone, from her hand.
“you can’t just tell people to just sing” I tell her dropping the guitar.
“W..well.. Why can’t i.. Cause if you tell me to, I will” she said with a slight shrug.
“not everyone’s like you June” I tell her.
“at least tell me to sing I will but getting it on video, is way out of it” I added.
“I..i just wanted to do something’ fun.. I’m sorry if you’re mad” she apologized Now she’s feeling bad making me feel bad. So I quickly found a way to lighten up the bad feelings
“have you seen my face on camera, it looks so bad that’s why I stopped you from taking a video”.
“what are you talking about you can’t be handsome in real life and be ugly on camera” she laughed.
“so you’re saying I’m handsome?”.
“yeah” she nods.
“so that means you like me?” I asked and she rolled her eyes. “here we go again” she muttered.
“no.. Erick.. I don’t.” she said boldly placing her hands on her hips.
“oh really?” I smiled slyly and moved closer to her expecting her to move back but she didn’t move an inch.
“okay, well do you know am about to kiss you?” I asked slowly, thinking she’ll run for it or push me but she just gave me a surprising smirk.
“okay then, go for it, if you have the gut” she said boldly and that sounded challenging. Slowly I moved closer to her and leaned myself over hers and slowly my lips met with hers..
