Soon it was morning, I found myself up and early than usual. Probably cause I was excited to have breakfast with Mason before he returns Star City. However I will be kinda sad once he leave. Bridgeport and Starlight Bay are so far apart. I finally meet a guy who isn’t put off by my odd appearance and he lives thousands miles away. Just my luck….
I seem to have a string of bad luck as I was getting ready to meet up with Mason. I dropped my toothbrush in the sink and it got stuck. I smashed my finger in my dresser drawer and to top it all off, I tripped as I was exiting the elevator. My dad often joked about me having my grandma’s grace, which is none at all. Sometimes I can be a klutz. I’m glad Mason wasn’t around….
“So fuckin’ embarrassing…”
I decided to drive to the Perc which I later regret as I attempting to pull out of the parking lot. It snowed overnight and the parking lot was still covered with snow. I was a little late because of the minor delay in traffic. The streets were still blanketed with snow and a lot of dumbasses don’t know how to drive. I remember why I caught a cab often..
Mason was a little late too, so I didn’t feel bad anymore. We chatted a bit, getting to know each other. He told me that he’s a Nulnact, a special type of witch you could say. It was a shock to me, I figure he was just a normal human male but I should have had figure with his odd hair color.
Mason asked a little about Jade, which kinda worries me. Was he still hung up her since she once dated him? He assure me that he was done with her but wanted to know if she’s been doing okay. He confessed that they were once engage but he broke it off when he expect she’s been cheating on him with her neighbor.
According to the previously day, Jade confessed to sleeping with Nico. I did notice that Mason seemed a bit bummed out. He mention about confronting Nico when he returned. Nico admitted it but claimed that Jade told him that she and Mason were done. Mason said that he was hurt that Nico still slept with her. They were suppose to be the best of friends and all. Mason didn’t want to spend the rest of the time talking about his past relationship with Jade. He quickly changed the subject and continued to learn about each other.
It was almost time for Mason to catch the shuttle bus to the airport in Jericho. The bus station was next to The Perc and I walked him over. I only known him for a short time and I’m already starting to miss him…
“I guess this is goodbye for now.”
“Yeah, I guess so too. It was nice getting to know you, Mason.”
“I feel the same. If ya ever wanna warm up during the winter, you can swing by my neck of the woods.”
“I might take you up on that offer. I do miss the warm winters in Star City.”
“I wanna tell you something.”
His last kiss was sweet and gentle, it made my cheeks warm and red. I was almost weak in the knees. The last thing I needed was to fall flat on my face again. I never met a guy who made me feel like this. Could this turn into something real? I thought to myself as I watched Mason board the shuttle. Mason turned around one last time to wave and smile at me. I smiled and waved back.
I hope this can be turned into something real…
Monday rolled around and it was back to business as usual. I returned to the Calamore Studios to continue working on my album.
I was feeling like I was cloud nice today, I had a fun weekend and met a nice guy. I felt like nothing could rain on my parade. I brought in some nice emotions into my recording session. Others took notice and was impressed. Today was probably the best recording session that I had in months.
I just happen to be recording a love song that I wrote, Purple Skies. I had difficulties trying to sound like I was really in love. I figure singing a love song would be easy since being a love genie. However when you never actually been in love, you can’t fake the feeling regardless if you’re a genie of love. But today, I feel like I had a taste of what love could be.
I know that my funds are starting to get real low and I’m not much studio time I can buy. There’s been a price rise and I think this might be my last session until I can gather enough funds to buy more time. I’m giving it my all today.
Afterwards I was joined by my friend Tom in the hallway. I could tell by the look in his face that he was impressed.
“What’s gotten into you? You sounded on point today. The emotion was real.”
“Ohh.. I met a guy this weekend.”
“Aww Kaia has a boyfriend haha.”
“Oh please.. Things are early. It sucks that he lives in my hometown, Star City.”
“Long distance, that gotta suck. I hope he treats you well cause I like what I heard today.”
“I just wish it was enough to impress, Louis.”
“Louis doesn’t care about talent apparently. He just signed some girl just cause she’s hot. She sounds like a pig stuck in a tunnel. I just wished he signed you on. You got something there.”
“I gotta have an angle according to him. If I was an alien or fake being one then he could work with me.”
“Honestly its his loss. Maybe you’ll be found by someone else.”
“Well I can help with that.”
“What do you mean?”
“Dynasty is looking for a lounge singer, the regular will be on tour for 2 months. They need someone to fill her spot until then. I spoke with Tiara and gave her a good word about you. She would love if you audition.”
“Oh wow thanks. Well I could use the money honestly. I don’t think I can pay for anymore time. I knew at some point I would need to get a job.”
“I think this would be great for you. Music producer often visit Dynasty while they are in town. Maybe one with good sense would discover you.”
“That would be nice.. But I’m not going to hold my breath.”
“Kaia, you know your sound is awesome and you got some real talent. Just believe in yourself a little more.”
“So you will audition?”
“Yeah, it wouldn’t hurt to try.”
“I know you’ll be picked. Trust me, they know talent when they hear it. They don’t have their head up their ass like my boss.”
“I hope I will be good enough. It’s kinda been my dream to a lounge singer at Dynasty.”
“Your dream is about to be a reality. Trust me.”
“Thanks. Thanks for being so supportive. You’re a true friend.”
The next day I headed to Dynasty to audition. I was nervous about it but remembered Tom’s kind words. I met up with Tiara and the others in the lounge area. I though about Mason as I sang and was hired on the spot. I was told that I was a tall glass of ice cold lemonade on a summer day. Refreshing. I was never told that I was refreshing, but they said I was the best that came in.
I texted Tom telling him that I got it. He knew I had it and congratulated me. I sent Mason telling him the good news and he was happy for me. I was happy but did remember that this was only temporary. This gig will only last for 2 months before I need to find something real. I just hope to be discovered within these 2 months.
I came home and found myself staring at a picture of my mom. Mimi wanted to hang up but I was on the fence about it. Why keep a photo of someone whom you don’t remember and who had walked away from you? But as I stared at the photo longer, I could see the love in her eyes was she smiled at Mordecai. I started to get the feeling that my mom didn’t walk away by choice. What happen to my mother?
I spent hours searching about my mother. I checked the archives on Starlight Bay’s news sites to see if there were abductions around the time I was a baby. I really didn’t find anything going around that time. There was abduction of a woman about a year after my mother went missing. The woman was found barely alive but pulled through. I hate to think if something awful had happen to my mother.
I wonder why my dad never look into filing a missing person report. But my dad said his baby mamas tend to just leave him with the kids. He didn’t think much of it. Daddy didn’t think much of anything.. just only with the thing between his legs.
The only info that I had about my mother was her name. I finally found something. She has a Facepage account and I was able to look at her profile. She lives in Storybrook and she married a guy named Aric Mason and they had a couple of kids. I couldn’t believe my eyes, here she is alive and well with a new family. They looked so happy in the pictures.
I started to get angry the more I browse through her profile. It’s almost like she forgot about Morde, Mimi and I. I see nothing hints that she wonders about us. I slammed my laptop close and stood up. I was about to go yank the photo of her in the living but I stopped myself. Mimi likes the photo, it makes her happy. If remove it, Mimi might have a melt down. For Mimi’s sake I’ll leave the photo up and not tell her about me finding our mother’s Facepage profile. But I’m still curious about what’s the other part of me.. Only my mother knows..
