“Why did you ask Hayley to set up the music?” I asked feeling really, really confused.
“You don’t know?”
“Know what exactly?”
“Remember the last 10 parties that I threw?”
“We all listened to Hayley’s playlists! Music from Earth! I’ve told you this before! Plus, she studies Harmony! That’s not an easy class to get into!”
“Sorry, I might’ve been a little drunk, then!” I smiled sheepishly.
“Don’t worry about that! And in case you’re wondering why you’ve never met Hayley at a party before, it’s because you’ve never both been at a party at the same time.”
“Thanks for telling me.”
“No worries! I aim to please!” We both chuckled. Liam is the best friend anyone could ever ask for.
“Ooh! Put the favourites playlist on and click ‘Shuffle’!” Ana exclaimed.
“You’re worse than Liam!” I grinned.
“Yeah, whatever, just click the damn thing!” I clicked the ‘Shuffle’ option and ‘Sorry, Not Sorry’ was playing on my phone. I started singing and I urged Ana to sing (through our bond) but she shook her head and mouthed, “No way!”. I tried about 3 more times until she gave in and started singing with me. I grasped onto my Gem and gave me the confidence to sing in front of 20 other people. Soon, everyone turned their attention to our singing and smiled. We were pretty good! A few girls started singing too and shortly, every girl in the room was singing and the boys were either clapping their hands or humming. Wow! I can’t believe I started this!
After the song ended, we all smiled and went back to doing our jobs but I connected my phone to the speakers and everyone had something to listen to and enjoy. Pretty soon, everyone was either dancing or chatting. Another reason why I love parties. Everyone comes together and have the best time of their life.
Wow! Her voice is amazing! I could feel the power radiating from her to the rest of the room while she was singing! I’ve never heard anything more beautiful in my whole life! Trust me when I’m saying that because I’ve heard a LOT of singing! No wonder why Hayley took care of the music at the last 10 parties!
Ok, Damien, remember your main plan in this party! Win the challenge, no matter how sexy Hayley looked. I walked up to her.
“Hey, Cupcake!” I greeted.
“Hey, enjoying the party?” she asked as she blushed.
“Yup!” I looked at the dance floor. “Why aren’t you dancing?”
“I only dance if I’m drunk or if it’s in front of a lot of Royals. Plus, I hate it. Why aren’t you? Waiting for a girl to ask?” she teased.
“Waiting for a pig to fly.” I shot back. She giggled.
“Well, I guess you’ll have to go to Earth to find out huh?” she asked. We both laughed our asses off. Can this girl seriously get anymore adorable? Stay focused, Damien! I need to win! I can’t lose a simple (ahem, not so simple since she is getting hotter by the second) challenge.
Damien was absolutely amazing. We talked about anything and everything! He just gets interesting (and sexier) every second. But I need to win this challenge.
Suddenly, someone caught me in a bear hug. I guess I’ll just have to find out who’s going to squeeze me to death! I looked at Damien but he just smirked and two people caught him bear hugs. OMG! Is that?
“Hey girly!” the surprise attacker said. I know that sound anywhere.
“Cat! I might… die… now!” I managed to squeeze out before she loosened her grip. Cat is one of my besties. Her full name is Caterina O’Brien. She is the werewolf Princess. Her dad is basically the King of werewolves. Cat is the most energetic and kindest person that I’ve ever met! She comes to every party and cheers up everyone’s day! She likes to be called Cat instead of Caterina which she says is “Too long!” She found her mate when she turned 17. His name is Ryder and they make out anywhere and everywhere. Oh, by the way, Ryder is the alpha of the River Dale pack. He might seem like a jerk at first but once you get to know him, he is a pretty sweet guy.
I turned around to see Melanie Carter (my other bestie) walking up to us with her signature smirk, she must know about the whole ‘mate’ thing. She is the vampire Princess. So, yes, her dad is the vampire King. Mel is the baddest bitch in the world. She doesn’t care what others think about her, she is the toughest girl that I’ve ever seen and she is mated to Devin one of the original vampires. He is like the most sarcastic guy ever but once you get to know him, (he is still sarcastic) he is a pretty cool guy.
Mel, Cat, Ana and I have been besties for a long time and we met at BD. You see, Black Diamond is not a school just for witches and warlocks. It’s actually another realm where it’s just schools for all paranormals. Fairies, witches, vampires, werewolves, mermaids, dragons, pixies and many other kinds of creatures. Our schools are next to each other and that’s the reason why we met.
“Wow, you’ve gotten stronger!” I exclaimed.
“And it works every time!” said Mel as she stood next to Cat and smiled smugly.
“Um… struggling to breathe here!” Damien gasped out causing us to giggle. “Let go, assholes!” he said.
“Wow, dude, don’t hold back!” said Ryder. Who knew these three were in good terms?
“And that works every time too!” said Devin whist both of them let go of Damien.
“Um ever gonna invite me in this get-together?” asked Ana.
“Yeah, what are we, the left-over sprouts?” added Liam as he walked over with her.
“Hey Ana!” said Cat a bit too enthusiastically.
“Hey, man!” greeted Ryder.
“See? You two are not left-over sprouts,” I said.
“Yeah, you two are sprouts that we try to eat but just feels like we need to avoid them,” Mel teased which caused the rest of us to laugh.
“Hey! You broke the girl code!” warned Ana.
“Oh yeah? Then you’ve probably broken it a million times now!” I replied.
“But that wasn’t in front of guys! So, it doesn’t really count!” Ana was practically begging right now which made the rest of us snicker.
“Hey, we are still standing here. So, if you girls can calm down a bit and act like you’re in the public, we would be very grateful, thank you,” retorted Damien.
“Ok, there’s only one way that I can try to erase this embarrassing conversation. So just gonna peel you girls away…” I said trying to avoid being embarrassed in a party. I tried pulling their arms but they won’t budge. “Guess I’ll have to do this the old-fashioned way!” I used my telekinesis to drag them over to where the drinks are. This is gonna be a very interesting party…
