Just got the 10th PD book. And then suddenly, I had this idea. Hope you like it…
It was Lilly who told me about JP and it was Boris who said they were a couple now. But when he told me that Mia and JP were now a couple, I was flabbergasted. But I still had hope. I still had this feeling that Mia would come back to me.
And after that day with Mia, I was feeling more and more convinced that she still has feelings for me.
But whatever it was, I never expected to hear what Lilly told me.
I was in my apartment, when the doorbell rang. I opened to find Lilly standing there, her hair blue and red today (blue and red, what kind of combination is that?)
And she walked in to MY apartment as if she owned the place. I sighed.
Lilly never changes. She will always remain the same, no matter what.
"So, what are you doing here, Lilly?"I asked her.
She turned to me. I noticed she had pierced her eyebrows and had a dozen rings in her ears.
"Michael, what if I told you a friend of mine needed help and I wanted you to help her?" she asked me.
I was taken aback by her question. What?
"Why would you want me to do something like that?" I asked.
"Just answer me Michael." she said, rolling her eyes at me.
"Well, if you insist so much." I said.
"Okay then. I want you to help my friend who is in danger."
How can I help high school girls, even though they are seniors?
"You want me to help your friend? Whom? How?"
She took a deep breath and said.
This caught me off guard.
Lilly hated thought Mia is a boyfriend stealer. They were not talking with each other for the past two years. But she had been helping Mia's dad with the elections.
"You want me to help Mia?"
"Well, it is more like saving her."
"From what Lilly? Besides she already has a boyfriend to save her from something."
"That is exactly whom I want you to save her ."
I froze. What is Lilly talking about? Saving Mia? From JP? Why?
"What is the matter Lilly?" I asked, grabbing her shoulders and shaking her. "Why should I be saving her? And besides, she freaked out that day at the park."
Mia is a Princess, for god's sake. She has a whole army in her command now, not to mention a bodyguard who is with her 24/7.
"Michael." Lilly turned to me. "You obviously don't understand. This is a situation no one, not even her bodyguard, can save her from. Only you can do that Michael."
Alright, if she doesn't get to the point now, I swear I am going to hit her. She has already scared me by the prospect of Mia being in danger.
"JP is a total phony; is totally using Mia, just like-just like he had been using me."
"I still didn't get what she meant by what she just said.
"She is going to do something very drastic. Something that she could regret horribly."
I sat down on one of the chairs. I had to say this, I am very dazed right now.
"Whoa, Lilly, slow down. What is she going to do?"
"I can't tell you that Michael. But remember this, if you don't show up near the elevators at midnight on the night of our prom, not only Mia, but you are going to regret it as well. You are going to lose her Michael. Not to JP, but to a ghost."
A ghost? What did she mean by that?
"What? I could lose her to a what?"
"When you left two years ago, for over a week or more, she didn't stop crying. She was binge-eating and was holed up in her room for weeks. She was in therapy for depression for almost two years now."
Mia? Depressed? About me? She has been in therapy for two years?
"Of course, I never knew this. Tina told me. But at that time, she held .But I don't think she is going to hold on now. Unless you assist her Michael, you –we are going to lose her."
I looked into Lilly's eyes. I saw something I have never seen in it before. I don't know what it was, but it looked like…
I looked at my watch. It was 11.59.I am here at Waldorf-Astoria, where the Albert Einstein Senior Prom is being held. I have shown up, just as Lilly has asked.
A few minutes later, I saw Mia and JP walking over to the elevators. I could hear what they were saying. I didn't mean to pry or anything, but I just heard what they were talking about.
"Look J, P,"Mia said, yanking a plastic tiara off from her head. I can see that she was made prom queen. "I'm really sorry about this."
"Sorry about what?" he asked. "This is actually the perfect time to leave. That music was driving me crazy. I don't know what's wrong with a little Josh Groban. And
there's no better time to go than with everybody wanting more, right?
How's your foot? Does it still hurt? Look—"
He had this completely seducing smile on his face. He had dropped his voice, but I could still hear him.
"Shouldn't you tell Lars he can go now? I can take it from here." he said, pushing the UP button of the elevator.
I can't believe it! He is going to make out with Mia on the prom night.
Suddenly, I understood why Lilly sent me here.
And she's right. If I didn't stop her, she would do something that she would regret later.
Like have sex with J.P
OH MY GOD, PLEASE DON'T MAKE IT HAPPEN.
"It's just…"said Mia.I can't believe she was stammering at a time like this.
Hit the jerk Mia, I wanted to yell.
"I think it's time we were honest with each other," she said. "Really honest. I know it's you who's been calling the paparazzi every time we go out. I can't prove it, but it's pretty obvious. I don't know why you do it. Maybe you think its good publicity for your future career as a writer or something. I don't know. But I don't like it. And I'm not going to put up with it anymore."
And she said she won't put up with him anymore. YES!
