- INSIDE THE KARAOKE BAR
“Did you message Travis to meet us here instead of at Odette’s house?” Mimi asked. “Yeah, don’t worry about it, I did.” Bethany replied.
“Hey look, it looks like someone is coming to talk to you…” Bethany said with a smirk… “Oh no…” Mimi replied.
- OUTSIDE THE KARAOKE BAR
“Sorry for the last minute change in plans.” Travis said as we stood outside the Karaoke Bar. “That’s fine.” I said. “Though the chances of me embarrassing myself in front of your friends have increased” I added.
“I doubt you will.” he replied. “And even if you do…” he added with a smirk. “All that matters is what I think of you, right?” “Right.” I replied while he pulled me into a hug. But they’re the people closest to you, and I’d like to make a nice impression…
“Travis?…” I began while looking into his eyes. “Yeah?” he replied.
“Nothing.” I said. “Come on, let’s go.” he said while leading the way. I followed him inside.
When we entered I stopped to take in the scene around me.
I was immediately blinded by bright lights, loud music, and lots of attractive people.
I could feel Travis’ hand reach down and grab mine in attempts to keep me calm and collected.
I found myself tuned into the scene unfolding ahead of me. There appeared to be a confession attempt ahead. Some guy was declaring his love for a petite red haired girl.
“For the last time, Martin, I said no! I’m sorry, but I have no interest in being in a relationship right now.” With a shrug the rejected male stormed out angrily.
To the right I saw a beautiful blonde looking straight at us. “Mimi, look! They’re here.” she said to her companion.
She then proceeded to walk over happily and met my gaze with her grey-green eyes.
She then turned to Travis and said. “So this is the super-secret girlfriend Odette told us you were hiding.”
“Haha, yup. She is the one.” he said with a grin. I could feel my cheeks begin to turn a bright shade of red.
“Look at them holding hands!” Another pretty blonde said – quite loudly – while coming closer. Pretty soon more and more people began to surround us.
“How long have you been together?” she then continued to ask. “Has he driven you crazy yet?” The girl who was just singing said while coming off the stage. “If you need to complain I’m here.” The long-haired blonde whispered with a wink. So many questions, comments, and faces surrounded us immediately – I began to feel a bit overwhelmed.
Travis noticed. “Okay stop.” he said. Everyone immediately fell silent. “First off, let me introduce her before you start overwhelming her with questions.” he added with a smile. “Everyone…” he began. “This is my girlfriend Kiara.” His declaration caused a smile to spread across my face unconsciously.
“Alright, we will try to get to know you slowly.” The red-head said. “Agreed.” The brunette added. “So what would you like to ask us?” the other blonde asked. “Actually a lot of things…” I said honestly. “But first, I think some introductions are necessary.”
“I’m Odette.” The singing brunette said. “I’m Mimi.” The red haired girl said with a smile. “I’m Bethany.” The long haired blonde added. “I’m Ryan.” The only other boy stated. “And I’m his girlfriend, Carly.” The short blonde chimed in.
“Nice to meet you all.” I said. They all had a pleasant atmosphere radiating off of them, I could tell that we were going to get along. “Well, now that that is done…” Ryan said. “Let’s dance!” Carly said excitedly, finishing his sentence for him.
After a few minutes we had all transitioned to the dance floor and Travis and I were swaying to beat together.
“So, what do you think so far? Did they scare you to death?” Travis asked over the loud booming music. “Not yet.” I replied with a laugh.
I looked over at Carly and Ryan dancing together…
Then turned my gaze to Mimi and Bethany laughing hysterically.
I snuck a quick glance at Odette singing with her amazing voice. Luckily, I was a quick learner when it came to names.
I then looked back at Travis, “I can honestly tell you that you seem to have a great group of friends.” “I’m glad to hear that.” he said while stepping closer.
Suddenly a loud slamming of the door caused everyone to stop and turn. Another attractive female, this time a brunette with a less welcoming gaze… She glanced around the room for a bit before she met my eyes and shot me a stare that sent a chill down my spine.
