I was walking home from school with my best friends, Emma Gordon and Maggie Joyce. my name is Emily. Emily Blake. I am in high school and so are my friends. We go to a normal high school, Wheaton Warriville South, in a normal town called Wheaton, in a normal state, Illinios. My life was normal yet fun, until June fourth, 2011. I was walking with my friends and we were talking and laughing, acting like normal friends do. There was a concert tonight for all school bands, and my friends and I had our own. It was called "The Sensation". We LOVED One Direction. If only we knew what was going to happen that exact night.
"Hey Em! Break a leg!" my sister said. She was in eighth grade. "Wait, you arent going?" I asked. She loved to go to these kind of things. "Nuh uh. Going bowling with James." James was her best friend, but I classified him as a boyfriend. I grabbed the keys and hopped into my slick, black porche. I drove to the school and got ready for what I thought would be a normal concert.
My boyfriend, Luke was waiting at the entrance for me. "Hey!" I said, running over to him. I kissed him lightly on the cheek. He pushed me away. He had been acting strange lately. "Whats up?" I asked, looking him in the eye. He just looked away. "Look Em. I dont think this is going to work out. I mean, with band practices for you, and me on travel soccer, we dont see each other a lot." he sighed, and I felt tears pushing against the back of my eyes.
"So...you dont love me any more?" I asked, crossing my arms over my chest. I had the advantage of being a couple inches taller than him. I looked down at Luke and he shyed away a little. I pulled him over to the side since people were now pouring in and shoving us in random directions. He paused before looking up at me again and held my hand.
"I just dont think-"
"Never mind jerk. I try to call and text you all the time! But no! You just-"
"Its not like that Em."
"You should go. Besides. Im gonna be late." i shoved him aside and stomped away, my tears smearing my mascara. I ran into the tiny dressing room backstage and highfived Emma and Maggie. They saw my slightly tear stained cheeks. "What's up, munchkin?" Maggie asked me, nicknaming me on the spot. "Eh, jerkface Luk brokeup with me. Seriously. I text him all the time and then he ditches our dates for clubs and junk. I knew it wasn't going to work out." I confessed to Emma and Maggie. Emma looked at me with sympathy and I turned away, looking in the mirror. I quickly grabbed my tube of mascara, applying a thick layer. Then green eyeliner, green eyeshadow, the lot. "Quick guys, we're on in five." I hurried them out the door. Little did I know that my normal life was about to take a SERIOUS turn, not for the worst, but for popularity, fame, and musical talent.
