Here I am with the second chapter! Enjoy!
That was the most nerve wracking thing I have ever done. Audition for So Random. I had to read some scripts, and join in with some of the rehearsals. Then, I had an interview, asking me about my hobbies, life and things like that. But I was sweating the whole way through. There were, surprisingly, only about six or seven other kids there, which did mean I had more of a chance of actually getting the part. To be honest, I was imagining thousands of kids and teens lined up outside Condor Studios, all waiting for a formal audition. But it was still scary. They were choosing them later today, so all of the people who had auditioned were just to stay around the studio, waiting for the results. Most of the kids were getting autographs from their favourite stars, scared they might not come back. Some kids had come up to me asking how cool it was to be 'Chad Dylan Coopers' brother. I first corrected them, saying his name was just Chad. The 'Dylan Cooper' did not need to be added on the end! It just wastes your time, really. I then told these people that it wasn't really that cool. They gasped at my response, expecting an 'I LOVE HAVING CHAD DYLAN COOPER AS MY BROTHER. HE IS THE COOLEST PERSON ON EARTH AND I AM SO LUCKY TO HAVE HIM AS A BROTHER' sort of thing. Yeah, right.
I had seen chad round a few times, most times annoying Sonny. Seriously, I feel for her. The pain!
I was walking into the prop house (I had seen it on the tour of the studio that was on the So Random website), when I heard a voice from the vents. "Hey, kid!" It said. I looked around the edge of the room until I spotted where the voice had come from. It was Zora!
"HI!" I greeted excitedly. Zora appeared randomly behind me, I swivelled round.
"You're Pooper's sister, right?" She asked.
"I'm Chad's sister." I explained.
"I know. Cooper, Pooper, the same thing, right?"
"You see us here as So Random have certain nicknames for Chip Drama Pants."
I'm guessing Chip Drama pants in another?"
"Yeah, we have a few."
"Well, nice to meet you." I said, changing the subject. "I'm Bella."
"Ahhh, Bella." She sighed. "Your audition was very good."
"You were there?" I asked. I didn't see anyone else in there except for the people who were auditioning us. Or maybe I was so nervous I didn't notice her there…
"I was in the vents." She explained. "I like to go up there to see what's going on in the Studios. It also comes in handy for our pranks!" She said excitedly.
"That's quite a good idea!" I said.
"I know." She agreed. "If you do get the job, which I hope you do, then I'll let you be my little sidekick!" She said excitedly.
"I bet it gets quite lonely up there alone!"
"Well, yeah, I guess. I do have Bernie though, my snake."
"You have a snake? That is so cool!"
"I know right? I really hope you get the job!" Zora said. If I did, I could tell me and her were destined to be really good friends!
'All of the people who auditioned for So Random please meet up in the Cafeteria.' Came a sudden voice from up in the sky. I'm guessing it was the intercom. "Good Luck!" Zora said, before climbing back up into her vents. I knew she'd be there with me.
I walked swiftly to the cafeteria, following the sighs as I couldn't remember the way. There were already a few of the kids there, and a few followed in behind me. We all stood in a line, whilst (Well, I guessed it was him anyway) stood at the front, a few papers in his hands.
"Well," He started, adding in a slight pause. "I have seen some great acting skills today. Others, not so good." He didn't eye anyone in particular. "But there was only one that stood out from the rest of the auditions." I was really nervous. How had my acting been? Zora said I was good, so that must mean something. Or was she just saying that to be nice? "And that was a certain Coopers." He said. Then, everyone turned towards me, including Mr Condor. My heart stopped for a moment, before speeding up. Had I heard him right? Had I really just got myself a place on a Hit TV Show? Was this a dream? "Well done, Bella. You have just earned yourself a place at So Random!"
Everyone else started to leave the room in disappointment; some giving me looks of jealously, others warm smiles. I could only just stand there, still as a snapshot, taking in the information. I was on So Random! OMG!
At that moment I squealed.
And at that moment, all my dreams come true.
