I already know I am not the best writer. I am still learning all I can about story form so please forgive me. I got this idea from Sally's song in The Nightmare Before Christmas and reading a manga called Kaikan Phrase. Please enjoy as this is my first time writing a song fic.

Disclaimer: I do not own Nightmare Before Christmas (though it is downloaded on my computer), Tim Burton has all that credit. I also do not own Kaikan Phrase. I just liked the idea of a singer and an ordinary person.

Natalie looked at the crowd as they surrounded Derek. Being the best friend to an international singer was never how Natalie imagined her life to be. She imagined marrying Derek and having a family. Sometimes life was not fair, especially when feelings weren't shared.

I sense there's something in the wind

That seems like tragedy's at hand

And though I'd like to stand by him

Natalie knew Derek was also fustrated with her. She had been making him spend time with her for a week. He wanted to be back on the stage. It was his second home. Things were seeming off lately. More crime was increasing.

Can't shake this feeling that I have

The worst is just around the bend

Natalie just couldn't blow off the feeling that something horrible was coming. She looked at the crowd again before she turned and walked down an alley. She felt tears start to fall. Things were crashing down. She wanted to confess her love but things were falling so fast.

And does he notice my feelings for him?

And will he see how much he means to me?

I think it's not to be

She had her room full of his posters and cds. Album after album of them growing up together. He laughed when she asked him to prom because he thought she was just desperate for a date. He never noticed her tears when he dated a new girl. He rarely even wanted to hang out anymore.

What will become of my dear friend?

Where will his actions lead us then?

He loved singing but he was loosing himself. He wasn't the sweet and loving boy he once was. She remembered when he would wipe her tears and tell her never to worry. Now he just waves her off and calls her a crybaby. He uses girls and skips school.

Although I'd like to join the crowd

In their enthusiastic cloud

Try as I may, it doesn't last

Though she wanted to be like his fans, she couldn't let go of the past. She knew the real him. She loved the real him. Those fans just wanted him for his body and money. She kept walking till everything flashed before her. She felt herself be thrown. As she landed on the ground, she looked to see a car speeding off. A hit and run was her punishment.

And will we ever end up together?

no, I think not, it's never to become

For I am not the one

Natalie moved her head and looked at the sky. Everything hurt. She heard people screaming. All she could think was Derek would never know her feelings. He would never hear her say I love him. Maybe she just wasn't the one he needed. She prayed a girl would come and be strong for him. She felt the world slipping away. She heard his scream one last time before everything went black.

For I am not the one

Hope you enjoyed :).
