Chapter 8

Today Mandy decided we should go to a karaoke bar to let out some steam, I was still feeling some how.
You would think that after all these months being separated from Xav I would have my shit together but it was hard, seeing him literally killed me and I was suffering.
Mandy told me we were going to blues it was in downtown in our area

I put on an off shoulder frill trim shirred floral dress, it was pink and highlighted my features well and it went along with my raven black hair, naturally my hair is curly but for my job I always had to keep it straight. This day I decided to let my hair breathe and let it flow in its natural state. I decided keep my look simple with matching the dress with white wedge shoes.
Mandy wore shorts with a bralet dress a leather jacket to finish off her look.
Once we're done we took our purses and got a cab to take us to blues

Arriving in Blues it was inordinately packed there was a buzz in the air
"Mandy why is it so packed today" I shouted to Mandy over the noise from the crowd and music, some one was already on stage. She shook her head and shrunk her shoulder indicating she also didn't know

Mandy went straight to the bar and I was following her closely so we didn't lose each other. "OK now Belle today you will drink this ex out of your system and try to enjoy this day, ok?" Mandy told me once we had seated ourselves on the barstools.

"what can I get you ladies" the bartender came over for our order.
"can you please get us two martinis" the first order wasn't to intense but it's a start becoz the night is still young.

Our orders arrived with waiter winking in my direction which caused me to turn quite red. Mandy and I sat on those bar stools enjoying the ambience of the bar, some lady was singing my heart will go on by Celine dion and she was so emotional but everyone was dying of laughter her voice and her expressions were so hilarious.
You can tell she was drunk out of her mind.
Mandy ordered us some more rounds and at this point I was in between being drunk and tipsy, I was having a blast and it was mostly old people who had come out in numbers. I guess the adults wanted their own type of fun since it'd be weird to hit the club at their age but there were a few people our age mates there.

"hey I have a good idea, how about you belt out your number too and show this folks how it's really done" Mandy suggested
And drunk me is very fierce and daring, normally I sing only in my home because I'm normally shy singing in front of people but drunk me can do the impossible.
"you know what your right,hick! I'm going to sing my heart out" I slurred with hiccups.

I stood up from the stool almost falling
"woah hahaha" I laughed along with Mandy at my near fall
"be careful love" some guy with a British accent helped me stand up to my full height
I nodded in thanks and blushed since his hands were on my waist and made my way to the stage Mandy hot on my hills.

I was was heading to the wrong direction and Mandy took me by the waist steered me in the right direction
"I miss this drunk you Belle" she laughed at me some more.

"stand here I'm going to talk to the MC ok" I nodded my head like a toddler and looked at Mandy while playing with my hands and rwrung them because I was impatient.
After a seconds or minutes, I couldn't tell really, Mandy came back.

"it's your time to shine sweet" she spanked my behind promoting me to move and I surely did that.

I came on stage and took the mic, the lights directed in the stage were so bright I couldn't really see the audience well.
"yellow, I'm Isabelle and I'm going to sing to songs for you today okay" I slurred my words and every one cheered me making drunk me so happy.
I chose gorilla by Bruno Mars. During my performance to that song I kept dancing sensually and my dress kept flowing nicely with my hair, I bet you I was a sight that's for sure. My hair was on one side of my shoulder and I kept playing with it, my eyes dilated from the alcohol. It felt like I was in a slow paced Havana nights event because of the the slowness the song but I moved so sexually it worked well together.

Once I was done everyone cheered so loudly with some men staring at me looking so uncomfortable if you know what I mean wink wink.
"now for the following song, I'm dedicating it to all those people who are super inlove with someone it hurts. Can someone bring a chair for me I'm tired now but I wanna sing this so bad" I whined

"someone bring the lady a chair" someone shouted from the crowd
And an older good looking gentleman brought one up the stage.
"thank you" I kissed him on his cheek and the was a smirk on his face while he was making his way back to his wife. I giggled when I saw his wife pouting and hitting him lightly on his shoulder.

Let me start, i thought. I chose it will rain by Bruno Mars and closed my eyes.
"If you ever leave me, baby
Leave some morphine at my door
'Cause it would take a whole lot of medication
To realize what we used to have
We don't have it anymore
There's no religion that could save me
No matter how long my knees are on the floor (oh)
So keep in mind all the sacrifices I'm makin'
To keep you by my side
To keep you from walkin' out the door
'Cause there'll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday it'll rain, rain, ra-a-a-ain
I'll never be your mother's favorite
Uh, your daddy can't even look me in the eye
Ooh, if I was in their shoes, I'd be doing the same thing
Sayin', "There goes my little girl
Walkin' with that troublesome guy"
But they're just afraid of something they can't understand
Ooh, but little darlin' watch me change their minds
Yeah for you I'll try, I'll try, I'll try, I'll try
And pick up these broken pieces 'til I'm bleeding
If that'll make you mine
'Cause there'll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There'll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday it'll rain, rain, ra-a-a-ain
Oh, don't you say (don't you say) goodbye (goodbye)
Don't you say (don't you say) goodbye (goodbye)
I'll pick up these broken pieces 'til I'm bleeding
If that'll make it right
'Cause there'll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
And there'll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
And just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday it'll rain, rain, ra-a-a-ain"
While singing this song I kept thinking of the good times I shared with Xavier, I hadn't realized I was close to sobbing because my the end of the song my voice was cracking and when I opened my eyes there were tears still lingering on my cheeks.
The lights dimed a bit so that I could safely get of the stage and there was Xavier, Mia, London and his girlfriend. I almost fell backwards on my butt, I didn't even notice the crowd's cheering because I got a whiplash of emotions from thinking of the life I've shared with Xavier to seeing him yet again with his future wife. I felt immensely miserable that it felt like the alcohol left my system
