Chapter One: The Beginning Of A New Life
I never thought that I would ever hate living in Los Angeles. You would think that being in Hollywood and meeting superstars would be awesome. But to my surprised it isn't. A lot of the stars that we know and love are just druggy jerks who love money and fame. They are maybe a few that care about they're fans. Others don't even care to write an autograph for someone. Take "Dreadful Sorrow's" Zane Blake or as his stage name is Shadow. A few months ago he got into some Crystal meth problems and was forced into the rehab center. If it would have happened three years old then maybe I would have cared. But it's not so I don't. You see I use to be a crazy fan. And one of my friends invited me to go to a concert with them. And i did. Afterwards we tried to get an autograph be well they all ignored us. So yeah. I seriously hate them now.
Before I left my old home in Tennessee i burn everything i had of theirs.
And day I don't regret it or care. in fact nothing about them surprises me. like the band braking up because of Zane's addiction to crystal meth. He screwed up everything and doesn't care. it makes me sick.
But ill have to deal with him for a few months until my aunt Leslie comes back from New York. So here I am, sitting on the passenger seat in Maddie's car. She is taking me to the mansion that she works at. I rolled my eyes when she said how much fun it would be.
Maddie was my aunt's best friends in collage. She was really nice and deserved to be paid more than she was. 'Damn rich arrogant jerk' I thought to myself as Maddie pulled the car into the park lot at the front of the mansion. Yes a parking lot, i said parking lot. Unbelievable I know.
Maddie and I walked up to the door and she knocked on the door.
A tall and slender man opened it.
" Maddie, welcome back." The man said to Maddie. This seemed to make her smile.
"Hello Edwin, this is Andison Vincent i told you about." she said to the man named Edwin apparently. Maddie walked inside and i followed slowly behind her.
"Miss Andison we have been expecting you." he said with a bow and walked to Maddie's car to get my bags. It was nice but i couldn't have done it myself. I'm only staying for a few months and I didn't want to become a Stunk up jerk in those few months. I walked around the mansion behind Maddie. Suddenly she told me to stop and to wait. i stood still in the huge library and waited for her to return.
"ZANE! GET YOUR ASS IN HERE!" i heard Maddie yell and i almost started to laugh. I loved Maddie so much. ]she is just so funny and doesn't take any crap from anybody. That is what I liked about her.
"Damn it Maddie cant you call for me a bit nicer?" i heard another deepish voice yelling back at her. Then there was a big Boom. My eyes widened. 'Did Maddie hit him?' i thought to myself in a state of shock.
"OW! What the hell!" The deepish voice came again.
"you idiot, you better cut down the cussing when you talk to Andie." Maddie said in a angrily voice.
She walked in dragging Zane by the ear. When they stopped and Maddie let him go. he turned to look at me. Apparently he didn't think i was a girl. It was written all over his face.
"Andie?" he asked sounding a little surprised. Yup he thought i was a dude.
I looked at him for a while and out of niceness I said "hello, Zane"
The look of shock didn't leave. 'Why is he looking at me like that?' I thought to myself. It seemed as though his common sense clipped back on. His awe stair faded and his face got serious.
"Hey, sorry I just did expect you to..."
"Be a girl?" I finished for him. He looked at me sheepishly and somewhat guilty.
"uh yeah" he replied rubbing his hand with his hand.
It was all ways awkward for me to meet people when they hear my name. Andie is like a nerd guy or something. Most guys like Zane was are shocked that I'm a girl and some say that I was a pretty one at that but I always thought that they're brain was losing brain cells or something.
"It's okay I get it a lot" I assured him. Again the awe face pops back on his face. The crystal meth must have an effect on his brain.
The awkward was almost touchable. More or less coming off of the guitarist adjacent to me.
I was pretty much use to being expected to be a dude. It really didn't hurt me. I thought it was funny actually. But this time it bugged me. I wasn't use to getting that look. A look that was confused and yet in Awe all at one time.
"You can stop looking at me now you pervert" I said looking at Zane dead into the eyes. My words seemed to get throw his head. His face became a annoyed look.
"And you have a smartass mouth for a girl" he replied.
We stood there looking at each other. The awkward was gone and now came the feeling of pure anger. This time it was coming from me.
"Okay you two, try to get alone well I go finish dinner" Maddie said leaving the two of us alone.
I wanted to tell Maddie she didn't have to do that but I was too tired to say anything. After two days of packing nonstop I was ready to passes out.
"So where are you from Andie?" Zane asked me sitting down in the chair beside him. It made him look like the godfather or something. Figured.
"Tennessee" I replied trying to keep my answers short and as sweet as I could
"oh well why did you move to Hollywood?" he asked again.
"My parents died. And my only family is my aunt." I replied again
His face turned soft and he went quiet. Thinking of what to ask me next most likely.
The death of my parents isn't as hard to talk about as it use to be. I've healed well enough to handle it.
My aunt said you can never get over the pain of losing your parents. And time is the best medicine.
To be honest, it did hurt. Since it was my fault. I just had to get mad at them and run away from home.
I hoped and prayed that they didn't hate me. I always wished that I could have apologized to them.
I held back the tears that wanted to come out and I put the memories out of my mind.
It looked like Zane was ready to ask me another question but Maddie called us to dinner before he could.
There was a lot of food for just the four of us. I sat next to Maddie who sat in front of Edwin and Zane ate at the very end. Once again like the godfather. But I refuse to kiss his ring.
There were a total of ten chairs at the dining room table. The table itself was wide and long.
Like the table you see in old hunted mansion moves.
The food was delicious. I asked Maddie if she needed help with the dishes but she told me to go to my new room and rest. Which I did, with the help of Edwin.
My room was pretty normal other then the tons of boxes in it. The bed was medium sized but still big for me. My suit case was on it. I changed into my t-shirt and pajama shorts. I put my jeans and t-shirt I had on back into my suitcase. I was going to unpack back I had so much of the few months I would be there and it was so late that I was too tired to deal with it. Instead I got into bed; it was so soft that as soon as I got in it I fell asleep before I could blink.
