My secret Angel
I finished singing and left the principal’s office because that Christina needed to talk to him privately.
I entered class and there were murmurings then laughter.
I’m not gonna make a fool outta myself again.
I sat down and turned back to look at Tyler and our eyes met.
I looked away and rested my head on my desk.
Few mins later Christina came in smiling.
She went to Tyler and jumped up happily.
“I’m the one singing with you Tyler and I’m so happy” she said loud enough to everyone’s hearing.
There were murmurings in the class and I too was surprised.
But I’m supposed to be the one.
“how is that possible, you don’t have the voice needed” Tyler said.
“oh really, didn’t you hear me singing” she said and smiled.
“what” almost all the class yelled in unison.
“but you were disqualified in the test” a girl said and she earned a glare from Christina.
“yeah I was but I was given a second chance and I have the voice needed” she pouted.
What’s this girl saying, she just claimed my voice to be hers.
I wanted to say something but the door flew open and the principal and a teacher came in.
“good day class ” he greeted and we replied.
“so the person to sing with Tyler on stage has been chosen ” he announced and everyone cheered.
My heart beat increased.
“and the person is” he paused and looked at me.
“is Christina Perri ” he announced and I felt something hard hit my chest.
But I’m the one.
Why is the principal being partial.
How is that possible? I know Christina from childhood, she doesn’t even know how to sing.
I know he’s lying and I must find the real singer.
I don’t know but it’s like I love her already.
Is that even possible? Falling love with someone you’ve not seen nor met.
Love is strange sometimes.
“so guys, the day is tomorrow so go and practice ” he said and left with the teacher.
The whole class got up and headed to the practice room.
I called my friends and we went there too.
I saw Kim, she was heading home and I could see she was crying.
I wanted to go after her but I have to practice.
I took my Guitar, my two other friends took theirs too and my other friend sat to beat the drum.
Christina came too and stood beside me.
I started singing.
*i woke up this morning and noticed that today is different *
*the birds are singing, winds blowing and the cloud is brighter than ever”
*i never knew today was meant for someone special, someone different*
I stopped for Christina to continue but she didn’t.
We stopped and asked her why she didn’t sing.
“um I feel sick and I forgot I needed to see my doctor, I already practiced the song at home so there’s no need in practicing again” she said smiling.
She took her bag and left.
Why would she sing when she knows she doesn’t have a beautiful voice.
I and my friends practiced and the class kept on cheering.
We finished and I went home.
I reached home but mom wasn’t at home.
She’s at work I know.
I freshened up, ate dinner that was prepared for me and went to bed.
Tomorrow is the day.
I wish I wasn’t singing with Christina but the real girl.
I wonder who she is.
I closed my eyes and slept off.
I reached home and laid on my bed with my school uniform still on.
I thought I’ll finally get the chance to sing with my Tyler but no.
I’m not going to the concert tomorrow and I’m not gonna sing.
I freshened up, ate dinner with dad and went to bed.
I woke up the next day, freshened up, ate breakfast with dad and accompanied him to his shop where he sells Korean food recipes.
I came back home and sat on the couch watching TV.
Before I knew it, I fell asleep.
We are at the hotel where the birthday is been held.
We have few mins left to l
present our song but I don’t know what the principal is waiting for.
Christina is already here but he still insists on waiting
We will be disqualified if we don’t present our song.
“she’s still not picking” the principal said for the 11th time.
We’ve been calling Kim but she’s not picking up.
I can’t sing if she don’t come.
“please pick up Kim, today you are special and without you we can’t sing” the principal muttered.
I sprung up immediately I heard my phone ringing.
I looked at the caller and it’s unknown.
“annyeonghaseyo, this is Kim on the line” I said yawning.
“ah Kim please please come to the concert we need you please come”
Me? Go there?
“why would I come, let Christina sing, she claims my voice to be hers, let her sing” I said and eased.
“Kim please I beg you” he said.
“OK I’ll come only if I get to sing with Tyler on stage” I said and he sighed.
“Kim that can’t happen, you will sing backstage ”
“hell no, goodbye ”
“Kim Kim Kim please don’t hang up, for the sake of Tyler and the school please come”
My angel really practiced a lot for this concert and if I don’t go, it will all be in vain.
“OK I’ll be there soon” I said.
“thank you so much please hurry up” he said and hung up.
I ran to my room, wore a blue gown and took my purse, wore my shoes and rushed out.
thank God she has agreed.
I turned to the principal.
“no one must know the real singer or else you’ll regret ever been borne to this world ” I said and left.
The MC called us to present our song.
We went on stage.
Tyler and his two friends held their guitar and the other one is set to beat the drum.
The guitar started and the drum followed then Tyler started singing.
* I woke up this morning and noticed today is different *
* the birds are singing, wind blowing and the cloud is brighter than ever*
Oh my God where’s Kim? It will soon reach my verse.
* I never knew today was meant for someone special, someone different ”
*yeah, someone worth beyond words and thousand reasons*
* coz even the brightest star shined in the daytime for this queen*
A golden beautiful voice started my verse and I know it’s Kim.
People were wow at her voice.
I just kept moving my lips like I was the one singing.
Me and Tyler : *and there can never be a more brighter day than this coz there’s no one so special like you*
*ooooh yeah, there’s nooooo one special like you *
We ended the song and a thunderous applauds followed.
Tyler and I looked at each other and smiled.
We got down from the stage and took our seat then the celebrant went up stage to give a speech
She thanked everyone especially us that sing her a song.
Our principal was called up stage with us and we were rewarded with different presents .
People couldn’t stop giving me presents and complimenting my voice.
Wow I feel more popular than I was.
Oh dear Kim, your voice is now recognised as mine and even the media and paparazzi are aware and is all over the news.
We finished the song and I couldn’t stop the tears that kept falling down my cheeks.
I watched how people complimented Christina for my voice.
I couldn’t take it anymore so I went home.
Why do I feel like someone else sang with me not Christina.
I know Christina very well and she can’t sing.
She came to me and put her hand in my arm and smiled.
“we did great” she said smiling.
“oh Christina, you and I know you weren’t the one that sang” I said and she scoffed.
“and why is that ” she asked.
“because you can’t sing” I seethed.
“common Tyler I agree I didn’t know how to sing but when I went abroad I studied music and I’m now an expert” she said smiling.
Could be true that she is truly the singer?
Why do I feel like she’s lying.
OMG is it………
No no it can’t be her or is she?
