I squealed and began kicking the blankets off of me as I stretched my arms over my head.

I sniffed at the air, not bothering to open my eyes. "Thank you Eleanor, your a life savor. You can just leave it on the side table." I smiled as I heard the clinking of the mug of peppermint tea Eleanor had just sat down for me. Eleanor was the maid, and sorta like a parent to me, since my father is rarely home. I sat up once I heard the door closed. I reached up trying to run my fingers through my bed head but soon gave up. I smacked my lips together then reached over to grab the peppermint tea from the table beside my canopy bed. I sipped from it slowly, careful not to burn my lips nor tongue. After I sat the now empty cup on the table, I clapped my hands happily in front of me. I quickly slipped from the bed and padded through my room on bare feet, my large t-shirt softly rubbing against my bare legs as I did. Hitting the button of my radio, We'll be a dream by We the Kings came on. Not soon after I was singing loudly along while I brushed the knots out of my hair. I got done doing my make up after that- little concealer, eyeliner, and mascara. I didn't really need it but it always made me feel better. I walked back into my room and saw Eleanor picking up the tea cup. "Elle, batman or spider-man?" I asked holding up my two favorite shirts. A smile coloured her thin lips. "Deary, I thought you were dressing nicely today." "Are you saying my favourite shirts aren't nice?" I asked, acting afended. "No, your batman and spider-man shirts are lovely." She said, still smiling. "Aspen! Come on, we need to get to school!" I heard my brother call down from the kitchen, his mouth full it sounded like. I knew he'd love Mr. Takahashi, I begged my dad to hire him as our chef. I glanced at the clock to see it was already nearly 8 oclock I yelped, tugged on a pair of skinny jeans and my batman shirt then ran out the door after I grabbed my messenger bag from the floor. Now in my brothers BMW, he plopped something into my lap. A bento box (if there's anyone that doesn't know what that is, it's sorta like a Japanese lunch box) with a cupcake handkerchief tied around it. I grinned. "Thanks!" I said happily while I slipped it into my bag. "You have my guitar in the trunk right?" "Yes, of course I do." He rolled his eyes. "You were telling me all night not to forget it." I giggled. "Sorry. I have a interview with Parachute today." "Really? I'm surprised they aren't busy." He said. All five of the Parachute members go to our school, my brother is very good friends with Will. "I know right! Me and Maddie got them on The Chillen Show." I said as we arrived to school. As soon as I jumped out of the car I ran around to grab my guitar from the trunk. "Bye Nicoli!" I yelled at him before pushing my headphones into my right ear. "Aspen! Finally!" I turned to see a flash of red as my best friend Maddie run towards me. She stopped in front of me with her bright red hair and a Chillen Show t-shirt on. I grinned and waved like an idiot.

"Did you practice?" She asked curiously as she glanced down at my guitar. "Nope, I know the song backwards and forewards." I said matter-afactly. "The interviews this afternoon right?" I said eyeballing her shirt. "Yuppy But I wanted to wear it." She pouted as she held out my shirt. I shoved my guitar at her, pulled my batman shirt over my head since I had a tank top on underneath and put on The Chillen Show shirt. "Rah, your the best!" She said hugging my around the neck after handing me my guitar back. "I know." We both walked through the doors of McKinley High School and headed towards our lockers. I turned around when I heard a couple screams. Here they come. First Will came through the doors in black jeans, vans, and a white v-neck. Soon the other four came in wearing something similar. I reached up to wipe my mouth to make sure I wasn't drooling. Maddie looked at me knowingly. Ever since 1st grade I had been completely head over heels in love with the jerk. Sighing I tossed my guitar over my arm before walking down to my locker. Just before I got to my locker someone walking down the hallway bumped into me, making me guitar fall to the ground. "Shit! What in the world is wrong with you! Now I have to re-tune it!" I growled as I looked up to see none other then Staci, Queen Bee. "Like I care." She sneered at me as she smacked her gum. "Do you know you chomp like a horse?" I muttered as I reached down to pick up my guitar. I grumbled about how I'd have to re-tune it again before stalking away, to my locker. I slipped my bag into it, then I felt a hand land on my shoulder. "Maddie, please she's just a bit..." I turned and looked up to see not Maddie but Will. "Your guitar alright?" He grinned cockily at me. I boded, not able to speak as I looked up into his gray green eyes. "That's good, see you at the end of school." He winked at me and walked away. I couldn't help my eyes look down at his ass. Then I saw Staci literally throw herself at him. I slammed my locker and walked off to the music room. I plopped down onto the stool in the corner of the room before taking out my guitar, running my fingers over the strings. I flinched at the sound, and started working it back into tune with the knobs. I heard Maddie sit next to me and start banging on the drums I smiled and looked up at her. "Mrs. Burier will never let you skip again." She pouted just as Mrs. Burier walked in. "Maddie, out now." I waved as Maddie grumbled and stalked out. I ran my fingers over the strings again. Much better. Time to practice before the show. I ran my fingers over the chords and began to play my favourite song. Which was also by Parachute.

"Hello! I'm Aspen Snowe!" I began as I looked into the camera across the room. "And I'm Maddie Willex, today we will be interviewing none other then Parachute themselves!" She yelled excitedly. Just then all 5 of them walked in, with a older man with a reseadnig hair line.

"Hey guys, this is our manager." We both waved at the man. Will sat down next to Maddie, Alex by his side. The other two on the couch opposite then him. The interview went smoothly. All of a sudden at the end of the interview Maddie blurted. "Aspen did a cover to one of your songs!" "She did, did she?" Will grinned from ear to ear. "Would you like to hear it?" Maddie asked, already jumping out of her chair for my guitar. I gave her the death glare. "Yes!" All of them said in sync. I sighed as I balanced my guitar on my thigh, my fingers automaticly placing themselves where they needed to be. I've been beaten down I've been kicked around I swear I heard Will mumble. "Wow!" When I looked up at him he was smiling and staring at the chords I was playing. But she takes it all for me And I lost my faith In my darkest days But she makes me want to believe They call her love, love, love, love, love They call her love, love, love, love, love I finished the song and everyone was staring at me. Even Maddie, who was grinning like an idiot. "Well?" I asked quietly. Was I that bad? I mean Maddie doesn't know what she hears evidently.. "No one has ever gotten the guitar hammer. Good job!" Everyone clapped. "Seriously, that was great!" Will grinned at me. He jumped up and whispered something in his managers ear. The managers head boded intently. He pulled out a piece of paper and wrote something on it. "Be at the stage tonight at exactly 8:15. Alright?" I looked at him but boded quickly. What in the..? All the band members followed the Manager out of the room when Justin, the boy who was working the camera said "Cut!" I looked over at him, he was still filming? He got me playing for them? I sighed. Shizz. "Yoooo Aspen Lee Snowe!" I shook my head as I realized Maddie's hand quickly in front of my face trying to get my attention. "Yer Maddiekins?" She grinned at the nickname I made up when we were in 1st grade. "Er, shouldn't you be getting home and getting ready for the concert?" She said biting her lip to hide her smile. "I guess, wanna come with?" She squealed, she loved my house. I gripped the neck of my guitar and placed it back in the case. "I'll take that as a yes."

I stood in front of the mirror as Maddie used my Sebastian hairspray to make sure the lose curls she created with my curling iron stayed but so they didn't get hard. Gotta love Sebastian. I wore a pair off tight skinny jeans that made my butt look great, black heeled boots and a leather jacket over a red tank top. My eyes popped from the smokey eyeshadow and cat eyed eyeliner. My eye lashes were nearly touching my eyebrows, since Maddie desired to make my already jealous long lashes even longer with Lash Stiletto. "Aha! Done." I looked her over and saw she was wearing my clothes. I giggled. She wore a pair of black skinny legged jeans, a purple scoop neck top that layered in the front so is showed off her cleavage. I glanced at her feet knowing she was wearing her favourite black platform pumps. Her straightened long red hair falling to the small of her back, her side fringe falling across her forehead. Before we left she added a couple bracelets and a necklace from my jewelry box. I kissed each finger tip before pressing them to the picture of my mum. Maddie smiled sadly at me as we walked out of the door, our heels clicking on the hard wood floor of the hallway. "Elle, we are going out!" I yelled grabbing a set of keys from the key rack by the door. Stepping into the garage I pressed the unlock button and saw I grabbed the keys to the Ferrari. We both slipped in, as I pushed the key into the ignition and revved the engine. Clicking the garage door opener I put the car in reverse and speed out of the garage before it had a chance of opening completely. Jerking the wheel the car spun as I quickly changed it too drive. The wheels squealed at the abrupt change in direction. Maddie screamed in delight as I pulled out of the driveway, cutting our neighbor off, who I might add already hates me, and I heard them lay down on the horn. "Keep your panties on!" I screamed as I speed off down the streets. Weaving in and out of curves we finally made it to the intersection across from the Jammin' Java where the concert would be held. The light turned red, making me punch down the breaks. Cars began coming every which way. I groaned as I realized it was 8 oclock The light finally turned green as I punched the gas. The tires spun as we launched across the median, pulling into the Jammin' Java. After pulling into a parking space we opened the butterfly doors and stepped out. The parking lot was packed with people waiting to get inside and all of them looked at us. We walked side by side to the front doors, ready to give the man our names. Guys whistled, and their girlfriends elbowed them in the ribs. We grinned at each other. "Aspen Snowe and Maddie Willex." I said to the bouncer. He motioned for us to walk through the door into the packed building, I heard the song playing and realized it was Losing Sleep. One of my favourite songs. My body started moving along to the beat. I looked up at the stage, my eye instantly finding Will. His shaggy dark hair was slightly wet from sweat, he was wearing a plaid black and white button down, jeans, and I grinned at his dirty old Chuck Taylors. "I'm going now!" I yelled to Maddie over the music. She boded as she sung tunelessly along, her body dancing along to the music. I walked off towards the stage, slapping hands off my ass as I went. I wanted to gag, disgusted. Finally, after what felt like forever and a half I made it to the stairs. I told the large guy standing at the base of the stairs who I was and he

checked me out, giving me a toothy grin. I rolled my eyes as I pushed past him. I realized who the guy standing with their back to me was the manager so I tapped him on the shoulder. He jumped and turned to look at me with wide eyes. "U-Uh, She is love is coming up soon." He stuttered. Right on time Losing sleep ended. "Aspen? Aspen are you out there?" I heard Will say from on stage. My heart was thudding in my ears, ready to melt at any second. The manager gave me a slight push so I carried on and took a deep breath. "Ah, there you are!" Will grinned a pearly white smile at me that made me swoon, and then he checked me out. I smiled back at him. "This girl right here, owns the Chillen Show!" He said into the microphone before he wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me closer to him. I didn't even mind his sexy ass was sweaty. "She sang one of our songs, and completely blew us out of the water!" The crowd started cheering. "She's going to be singing this song with us." He looked at me then point at the microphone close to his. "This is your microphone." I boded and curled my fingers around it. The drums started up then Will and the others started up with the Guitars. I patted the beat on the microphone softly, my body swaying to the beat and began singing along with Will in perfect harmony. My soft but powerful voice complimenting his deeper more hypnotizing voice. I've been beaten down, I've been kicked around, But she takes it all for me. And I lost my faith, in my darkest days, But she makes me want to believe. They call her love, love, love, love, love. They call her love, love, love, love, love. She's all I need. Well I had my ways, they were all in vain, But she waited patiently. It was all the same, all my pride and shame, And she put me on my feet. They call her love, love, love, love, love. They call her love, love, love, love, love. They call her love, love, love, love, love. She is love, and she is all I need. Cause when that world slows down, dear. And when those stars burn out, here. Oh she'll be there, yes she'll be there, They call her love, love, love, love, love. They call her love, love, love, love, love. They call her love, love, love, love, love.

They call her love, love, love, love, love. She is love, and she is all I need, She is love, and she is all I need, She is love, and she is all I need. The song ended way to early, I felt very disappointed. Someone pulled me into them for a hug, and someones lips met my cheek. I looked over to see Will smiling happily at me. "One more time for my friend Aspen!" He yelled into the microphone. I grinned at the crowd as they went crazy, bending down for a small bow. I still felt Will's hand on the small of my back, the tingles all over my body. I turned and made my way off stage, then down the stairs. I felt arms go around me. Maddie. I grinned at my best friend and ruffled her hair. She slapped my hand way, smoothing her hair back down. "That was uh-mazing!" Maddie yelled at me over the new song coming on. I boded and took her hand to lead her to the dance floor. Soon we were dancing and laughing. She took my hand to make me do a little turn. After about an hour, I lost count of songs we danced to, I realized a new band was on. I shrugged, continuing to dance with Maddie to the new band. I stiffened slight as I felt a pair of arms wrap around my waist, their hands gripped on my hips. They danced closely behind me. Maddie grinned, as she turned mouthing 'water'. I turned around in the persons arms. Looking up into a pair of familiar grey-green eyes. Will. "Hey, dance with me." He smiled down at me, not the cocky grin like normally, but a real smile. I boded and began moving my hips to the beat of the songs. Soon we were trying to pull of old moves like the Sprinkler and the Lawn Mower. We were laughing, and having such a good time. I so happened to glance at the clock on the wall. 2:30. Oh shit! Will stopped dancing when he saw the look on my face. "Something wrong?" He asked, moving closer to me so I could hear him. "I had to be home by 2!" I yelled back to him. He glanced down at his watch, he looked back up at me frowning. Like he was upset I had to go. "Oh. I had fun tonight!" I boded in agreement. "See you later!" I wrapped my arms around his neck, and felt his arms wrap tightly around my waist. As I pulled out, I gave his cheek a peck. Turning I grabbed Maddie by the hand when I walked by her. She had been dancing with some guy with blond and blue hair. I couldn't help the thoughts running through my mind as I quickly pulled out of the parking spot, going through a yellow light. Why can't Will love me as much as I love him? It would make everything so much easier. I sighed and pulled up to my house. I won't stop trying until he looks at me as Aspen, not Nicoli's little sister.

It was Friday morning and I was banging on the door to the bathroom in the hall. I know I have a bathroom in my room but thanks to my brother the toliet didn't work. "Come on! GET OUT OF THE BATHROOM! I have to pee!" I continued to beat on the door, yelling at him. Soon the door opened and I accidentally punched him in his chest. "Ow!" I yelped as I pulled my hand back to kiss it(yes I kiss my own booboo's). "When did you get so hard?" I heard a chuckle and looked up to find Will leaning against the bathroom door. Wearing nothing but a grin and a towel around his waist. I let my eyes wonder down his hard muscled chest to, then down to the 'v'. I shook my head. "Umm.." Was my witty snap of a comeback. "Love the pj's." He complimented the large t-shirt of his I was wearing. My cheeks probably turned bright red because he grinned. Great now he thinks I'm a stalker. I brushed past him into the bathroom then shut the door. Sighing I decided to just take a shower in here. I pulled the t-shirt off then threw it to the ground and stomped on it a couple times. I just had to wear that shirt to bed! I slipped my panties to the ground and stepped out of them. Leaning over I turned the shower on, just as the door opened. "I forgot my wall...." He trailed off as he saw me standing there nude. I blushed even harder then before as I just stared at him, to shocked to grab anything to cover myself with. He shook his head out of the haze he was in then grabbed his wallet that was siting on the counter. He looked back at me then walked out, shutting the door behind him. Did I look that bad to him? ... I felt my bottom lip tremble as I stepped into the shower. I started doing the only thing that normally brings me back to reality and okay with this said reality.

Dreams dreams Of when we had just started things Dreams of you and me It seems it seems That I can't shake those memories I wonder if you have the same dreams too I sang as I shampooed and conditioned my hair.

The littlest things that take me there I know it sounds lame but it's so true I know it's not right but it seems unfair The things are reminding me of you Sometimes I wish we could just pretend Even if only for one weekend So come on Tell me Is this the end?

Rinsing my hair of conditioner, then my body of soap. I gave my legs a quick shave. Stepping out of the shower I sang the last part. I wrapped my hair up in a towel then another around my body. Feel's like my heart is breaking. I thought to my self while I walked out of the bathroom. I mean common this is my brother best friend I'm talking about. He's the most popular guy in school and he has his own band! I was to busy scolding myself that I hadn't realized I walked right past a talking Will. Smooth Aspen. Real smooth. "Oh sorry you say something? I was scolding myself." I blurted with a idiotic grin. He chuckled. "I was wondering if you wanted a ride to school today?" "Coolio, I'll be ready soon." I boded then walked back to my bedroom across the hall. After I got on my undergarments.<-- Funny word. aha. xD I hurriedly put on some frayed shorts, a floral tank top, and a pair of bow flips flops. I quickly brushed my teeth. When I got outside Will was sitting in his Mustang.
