Demi laughed at something Paulina said during the commercial break. "He was not that bad," she replied still laughing about the previous contestant. "Hate to break it to you sweetie, but he was," Kelly added. Simon was stuffing his face with fresh mints completely ignoring the girls.
The announcer told them their break is over so they sat straighter in the seats and waited for a new contestant. They were in Texas which meant after auditions are over Demi is going to visit her home and her relatives. A girl walked on stage holding her microphone confidently and with guitar hanging over her shoulder and Demi spilled the drink she just sipped on all over the table as soon as she made an eye contact.
"You okay?" Simon whispered to her. Demi just nodded. "Hey honey," Paulina started smiling at the girl. "Hi," she replied a little shyly. "Tell me something about yourself," Simon ordered looking through some papers as he chewed on yet another mint. "I'm Emma. I'm 17 and I'm from Dallas Texas." The crowd screamed loudly when she mentioned Texas. All the judges looked at Demi who remained silent.
Simon just shrugged it off and clicked the pen in his hand a few times while asking a question. "What song are you gonna sing for us today?" Emma smiled. "Chasing cars." Simon nodded. "Go ahead." There were a few moments of silence and Kelly leaned over to Demi. "Are you okay?" Demi shrugged. "I uhm I know her. I'll tell you later."
Emma started stringing on the guitar. The second she started singing the crowd was on their feet cheering for this very talented girl. She looked directly in Demi's eyes as she sang.
If I lay here,
if I just lay here,
would you lie with me,
and just forget the world.
Demi had tears in her eyes that she tried so hard to stop. The thing was she knew this girl. She knew her oh so well. Because they were once in love. And Demi broke both of their hearts when she ended the relationship that was almost too perfect to be true.
