"Congratulations!!!" we high-five everyone in the room after we finish our first recording.
Today, our band, WHISTLE, just finished recording our debut stage, and I can't help it. I started to cry, not even if there were a lot of people, or if I looked too strange. All the feelings that I held inside started to pour out.
I looked around and saw that my members were crying, too.
Finally, after many years of training in the infamous BP dungeon, we finally see the stage. My family had been patient and very understanding. When they allowed me to audition in Australia, they had been supportive ever since.
When I chose to train to be an artist, even if that means leaving my family behind, they still embraced my goals and my decisions. After all the challenges and struggles I've been through, I feel like debuting is a sweet delight.
The girls and I hug each other as we continue to cry.
This had been our dream. We had dreamed of this together.
I have been with Tokyo, Max, and California since like, forever and we had spent a lot of nights staying till the wee hours, fighting the urge to sleep so we can practice our performances. We always make sure our presentation for our weekly evaluation is perfect.
We've been together for God knows how long, I can't even count the times when we all cried together dreaming of when we will finally debut.
But finally, here we are, fulfilling our dreams.
"I'm so happy," I told Max.
She looked at me beaming. "Me too!" and we both started squealing together. Soon, even Cali and Tokyo are squealing with us.
"We should celebrate," Cali exclaimed.
And we looked at each other as we all speak at the same time, "Chicken!!!!" we all exclaimed and our manager laughed at how silly we looked like.
Actually, it's Cali's favorite food but heck, one can never go wrong with chicken.
Our manager then ushered us outside of the dressing room so we can all go to our favorite restaurant.
Our recording is done anyway and it's already past nine in the evening so we need to go if we want to celebrate because we have something set for tomorrow. That means we need to sleep early tonight.
As we excitedly run our way on the hallway of Trinity Studios, we didn't notice a guy walking towards us until Cali halted and bowed 90 degrees.
"Good morning sir!!!"
Tokyo, Max and I stopped and bowed as well, greeting our senior. In our industry, we usually call senior artist sir and ma'am.
I bowed in instant without even checking who it is until I heard his voice.
"Hello!" he greeted back a little cheerful as he bowed in return. The body refused to lift up as I remembered that I recognized whose voice it was.
Max pulled me a little when I didn't move and I heard someone cough so I had to lift my head.
Because staring at me, was the guy I was dreading to see each day.
I had to catch my breath upon seeing him.
When his eyes fell on me, I swear I saw how startled he was a little before his face became serious as he bowed again and went on his way, his eyes glued to his phone, not even looking back.
Of course, what should I expect? I told to myself.
"Hey, Zanaya, are you okay?" Tokyo asked me a little worried.
I smiled at her as I reach for her hand.
"Of course I am. I'm just a little overwhelmed because we're finally debuting." I half-squealed which she returned before our manager called us.
Soon, all four of us are inside a van with our manager in the wheels as we head to our favorite place.
While the girls excitedly talk with each other, my mind wandered to the guy we just bumped with earlier.
Seth Devon, my husband. Well, at least on paper.
Zanaya's POV"My daughter is really pretty." my Dad said teary-eyed as he looked at me as he and Mom assist me on my way to the altar.I'm wearing a simple white dress paired with peach-colored sandals. My hair is curled nicely while a beautiful flower crown adorns my head.Today, I, Zanaya Devon will be getting married at 19, a secret garden wedding in our backyard.Pregnant? No.In love? Fuck No! Definitely not.With who? Seth fucking Devon.Sounds familiar? Well, yeah. He's that Seth Devon of SHADOW, one of the world's most famous boy band member.And me? I'm just Zanaya Devon, soon to debut in BP Entertainment's rookie group WHISTLE but here I am, being forced to be married to a jerk like him.A long sigh escaped my lips. I never knew how things had escalated into this.
Zanaya's POV"And the winner is..." I held Tokyo's hand tighter as we wait for the announcement for the winner. It was our first nomination and our performance had just ended. Both of our songs are nominated for the top 1.To be honest, we were not really expecting to win. Performing on stage is more than enough. We know we have to work really hard to achieve success in this field. But of course, deep inside, I'd feel like it will be such an honor if we do.Right?"WHISTLE's Hope!" my heart jumped a little when I heard the MC's announced our group's name.My mind went blank even after the MC had given us our trophy and a bouquet of flowers.This is so insane. I mean, we just debuted thirteen days ago and now, we already have our first crown.<
Zanaya's POVCalifornia: Are you sure you're okay going alone?Cali worriedly asks me via text message perhaps still hoping that I will change my mind.Before I went out of the house earlier, Cali had tried everything she could to talk me out of this while Tokyo and Max hug each other behind her.It is the first time that I would ever go out without them, and without them knowing why and where I would go.But since it's something that even our boss knew, they can't do anything about it."Hey, if this is something weird, you know you can tell us right?" Max said."We are worried about you. Why can't you tell us what's happening?" Tokyo asked.I smiled at them. "It's a family matter and I am grateful enough that our boss understood."I each gave them a hug. "Don't worry about me.
Zanaya's POV"You sure you're okay?" Max asked me while she feels my forehead.We have a performance later in Serene Music but I'm not feeling really well.But of course, I can't let this little cold and slight fever get in the way. We worked hard for this.We're now promoting Full Circle Album."It's okay. I can do this." I cheered while looking at the three girls who's all staring at me worriedly.We're now dressed in our performance outfit."Here, drink this." our manager gave me a medicine which I took and quickly drink."You're on in ten."One of the producers came into our room to inform us so the girls and I all stood up to get ready. Then, we went our way to the studio where we will be recording.Once we arrive, we occupied the empty seats on the audience that are allotted for art
Seth's POV"Is it necessary for you to pick her up bridal style dude?" Mono scolded me.I understand what he's pointing out. Some people might see us and get the wrong idea."She's a rookie. Imagine the hate that she'll get once people see the two of you." Raze added.We're now back at our dorm. Sky and I had to follow because the boys had gone first."Raze, stop scolding Seth. Zanaya was really sick. She immediately passed out once her back touches the couch." I looked at Sky,a little grateful for backing me up.I heard Demo sigh."We understand. We're just worried not only for you Seth but for the girl as well. Remember,in our industry, it's always the girl that gets the most hate when people found out that you're dating.""But we're not dating," I told them. Well, except that we're actually married. I told myself.
Zaya's POVMy eyes squinted a little when I heard the door on my room squeaked, suggesting that someone came in. Too exhausted and eyes too tired, I did not even bother checking who it is. Well, it's probably just one of the girls. I and the girls were supposed to do a Video live this evening but my body isn't really cooperating right now.After Snow and the girls had woken me up earlier from my short slumber, we quickly made our way back to the dorm so I can take a rest. I can barely even remember how I was able to get in the house because I was damn sure I was stone-cold and knocked-out on the van earlier.If I weren't actually sleeping on the couch on a music show, I swear I wouldn't even move an inch. A small smile tugged at the corner of my lips when I remember how peacefully I have been sleeping earlier.I was dreaming about my husband. Yeah, my jerk of a husband, Seth Devon.
Seth's POVI wiped the invisible sweat on my hands to the side of my pants,a little uneasy with all six pairs of orbits staring straight at me."Okay,so you're telling us that you meet up with your high school friend and you ended up sleeping over?" Raze asked,his arms across his chest.I nodded a little vigorously."And that the highschool friend was a boy?" Mono grilled.Again, I nodded.I scold myself for being a little careless.After I called Zaya's Mom, I went to their dorm and brought some of her favorite food.Imagine how shocked Cali is when she opened the door and found me.I had to explain that Zaya's and my family are close and that her mom had sent me to bring her stuff.Though a little skeptical,I was glad that she allowed me to come in.A smile
Zanaya's POVI flinched a little after Seth had slammed his arms on the wall,enclosing my body between his, tightly holding my wrist ensuring that I won't escape."What are you doing?" I asked him a little scared of his sudden outburst.Our recording in Senere Musics just ended and I was about to go back to where the girls are after I came out of the restroom when I felt a pair of strong hands pulled me harshly and slammed me on the wall.I felt a surge of pain on my back but I soon pushed that thought because standing in front of me is my husband,Seth Devon,eyes fuming in anger.For the first time, I felt scared of him. We never had any confrontation like this before."Who do you think you are?" he asked me,his eyes boring deeply into mine."What are you talking about?" I'm not sure what he's getting mad about. We never real
