♫ Empire State of Mind ll Ed Jesus [Cover]
Short sucky story. I am sorry.
Included - @nessazura
"This is officially the worst decision i have ever made in my life." I said into my cell as i walked towards the busy office building where the meeting was happening. I had officially walked over and back away from the building 10 times.
"Worse then when you decided that you would live in Brooklyn with me?" Ashton said sounding amused. My god i hate him right now.
"Yes. This is stupid. What i am going to say to them? Oh hey i'm Rachel and i own a blog." I said rolling my eyes. "I can't even imagine what the other constants would say , they have degree's and sh.t and i sit on a laptop."
"And you have been to every fashion week in New York since you turned 19 , Your blog is one of New York's favourites and you have been telling people they have horrible style since you were 12. You can handle this Rach , No put on your big girl panties and get in there." Ashton said.
"That was strangely inspiring ," I said with "But-" I began.
"No buts Rach. Just pretend it us at one of Rory's party and we mock everyone , just do that in your head." he said , I smiled a little. Was it odd that this was making me feel better. Probably but it was but that wasn't important to me.
"Now go in there." Ashton said.
"I don't hear you moving."
"Goodbye." I said hanging up. Just go in there and get it over with and then i can go back to my, well Ashton's apartment and eat pizza and watch community dvd's.
"Running In Heels?" One of the workers asked as soon as i walked in , I nodded - well atleast they were efficient "Upstairs to the left and good luck with the show." I nodded before walking away , the woman sound entirely to chirpy for my liking.
I walked up stairs to see a sea of fashionable looking woman standing outside the door talking to each other. This is like highschool , all over again except for i couldn't find fault in any outfits.
I wonder how quickly i could make it back down to the door. I could spend my days at Starbucks looking like a hipster , sipping my hot chocolate and reading some old book.
"Ofcourse my mother would show up." A girl muttered to herself , I looked over at her. She was young , well younger than me. To be honest i don't think she was even 18 but she was wearing Balmain which obviously meant she had some taste and some money.
"Is your mother part of the show?" I asked causing the girl to flich slightly. Hmm that was the first i had that effect.
"No , atleast i hope not."
"Not fond of your mother? Me either my mum is a complete b.tch." I said nodding because the girl was just starring at me and i didn't do well with silence. I didn't do well with alot of things actually. Well that was my attempt at socialising. Ashton and Rory would be proud.
"Umm okay. I am Pippa." she said still watching me carefully. Great some girl thinks i am crazy.
"Okay i'm gonna call you Pip." I said , she burrowed her eyebrow "Ah? Pippa." I said adding, "Rachel. Are you part of the show?" I asked , I was pretty sure she was but for all i knew she was an a very well dressed intern who was meant to be getting the bosses coffee and just had an over protective mother.
"Me too, surprise!." I said. Oh god would some just shut me up already.
"Nervous?" She asked.
"I guess." I said with a shrug. Look at me playing it cool. "But they picked me for a reason right?"
"Do you know who the judges are?"
I snorted , my knowledge of the show consisted of
- It was a reality show.
- It was about fashion.
- I was on it.
"Do you?" I asked wondering now, judges. Well that is great.
"Yeah, Well there is one now." She said pointing over to a woman with a short black hair , a straight black dress the hugged her stick thin figure and what looks like louboutins.
"Oh yeah. Isn't that the one that is married to the footballer."
"No she is married to a soccer player." Pippa said , "Well i call soccer football you know since they actually play with it their feet."
"And thats the next judge." She said pointing a man , Oh i knew him , I had seen him at Fashion Week a few times.
"He is cool. I like his bowtie." I said , "What bowties are cool."
"And the last judge is her." she said nodding her head to a mauve haired woman. "Oh she is from fashion police i love that show and my roommate loves her dads band despite them sounding like cats wailing." I said.
"You are weird."
"Atleast i don't share a name with Kate Middleton's sister." I said "Sorry that was rude , I am not rude just awkward and you called me weird so should apologise as well."
"But you are weird not in a bad way."
"Still not a complement but i will take it but i have to go talk to producers and such." I said , might as well get them over with before Pip says i am a bad weird.
"Bye Pippa." I said waving before turning towards the producers.
"Rachel Windsor." I said as they turned to face me. "Yes , i remember." One of the women said ,"I knew your father."
"I feel sorry for you then." I commented earning an odd look from the woman. "I mean , I feel bad that you said knew and not still in contact since he is such a wonderful man." I said with a fake smile , one that i perfected during my time living with the said man.
"Yes right ofcourse. How is he?" she said , I frooze. "Uhm last i heard he was busy in Italy." I said , Yeah busy screwing his boyfriend .
"Oh Italy is lovely , I am going to go talk to some other constants."
"Hello, Rachel was it." Mr Bowtie said coming over , I nodded "That is me."
"I actually love your blog." he said with a smile , I grinned i loved my blog to. Look at that something in common already.
"Yeah ," he said nodding. "Are you excited for the show?"
"So how did it go?" Ashton said as we sat on the floor eating Pizza. I shrugged "Good i think , I didn't really talk to many people because you know i am not good at that." I said before chewing the cheesy pizza.
"I blame your parents for your complete and utter lack of social skills." he said "The f,cked you up pretty bad."
"They did but we should thank them. If they didn't screw me over i would have been one of those rich kids that you hate and we would have never been friends." I said "So i propose a toast to my parents and the fact they shouldn't have been allowed to have children." I said raising my glass of cheap wine.
"You are getting sentimental , I think that is a sign of to much wine but i will drink to that." he said clinking his glass with mine.
"So has Rory called yet?" he asked looking over at the phone.
"No." I said before sighing "He is probably just to busy right? With work and stuff." I said , sometimes i worry that Rory would leave me. I don't know if it was because i was inlove with him or i was just scared to be alone.
If you ever want to collab i will be more than happy to and comment for relationships and stuff.
