The Following Day
Janelle woke up at around 8 o'clock in the morning. They didn't start rehearsals today until 10:30, so she was good for two and a half hours. She looked over and didn't see Coraline अगला to her. She started to panic a bit and thought someone came into the room and kidnapped her. She soon heard giggling and got up and looked around. She finally found Coraline on the floor in front of the सोफ़ा, सोफे with Michael. Janelle sighed in relief, but then started to wonder how Michael got into the room without the key. Michael looked up when he heard her sigh and smiled.
"Morning, Janelle." He said.
She giggled a little. "Morning, Michael. How did आप get in here?" She asked.
"I asked the receptionist if she had a copy of your room key and she gave it to me. I also asked her if she had a copy of mine. So..." He dug through his pocket and pulled out his copy of his room key. "Here." He held it out to Janelle.
She took it in her hands and was shocked at first, but smiled.
"You're welcome, Janelle."
Janelle sat down अगला to him and tickled Coraline like there was no tomorrow and she giggled so much. It was the funniest sight for the both of them. Janelle had a good feeling about Michael, yet she thought that maybe it was a little soon to get that feeling about him. She didn't only like him...she loved him. She loved him so much and it had only been a few days, almost a week, since they first met. Janelle looked at her watch and saw that it was about 9:15.
"Coraline, sweetie, why don't आप go get dressed? We'll go out for breakfast."
Coraline got up and smiled. "Okay, mommy!!" She कहा and ran to the bedroom and closed the door.
Janelle giggled at how she could do that all द्वारा herself. She looked over at Michael and saw that he had a mischievous look on his face.
"Uh, Michael? What are आप thinking?"
He giggled a little and tackled Janelle onto the floor and tickled her so much. Janelle started to laugh like a little kid.
"Oh my God, Michael! Stop!! Ahahaha!!" She laughed, trying to get him off of her.
Michael kept moving her arms out of the way and eventually, he pinned them over her head. He grinned and leaned down, about a few inches away from her lips.
"Do आप think it's illegal for a costar to fall in प्यार with another costar?" He asked.
Janelle blushed. "U-Uh...I'm not s-sure. W-Why?"
He leaned down and whispered, "Because I think I fell in प्यार with you." Then he gave her a soft किस and released.
He got up off of her and helped her up. She was still blushing, not only because he asked her that...but because he कहा that he thought he fell in प्यार with her. He saw her blush get redder and raised his eyebrow a bit.
"Are आप okay, Janelle? You're all red in the face." He put his hand on her cheek and she blushed even more. "Maybe आप should stay inside today."
She shook her head. "No, I'm alright. I'm fine. Don't worry about me."
"Are आप sure?"
She nodded. "I'm sure. Just let me get myself situated."
He nodded and she ran off to the bathroom and washed her face, cooling herself down. She panted and looked at herself in the mirror.
"Did he really just say that he thought he fell in प्यार with me?" She muttered to herself. "Did he seriously say that?"
She took a towel and dried her face off and saw that her blush was gone. She sighed in relief and applied a little bit of makeup and exited the bathroom. She saw Coraline running around Michael and he was tied up on the ground. Janelle giggled and shook her head.
"What are आप doing, Coraline?" She asked.
Coraline stopped running and giggled. "I'm playing Indian and I just captured the trespasser."
Michael looked at Janelle, thinking that she was the head Indian. "Help me, please?" He giggled.
Janelle acted like an Indian and chuckled. "Young One, release him. He is our friend, not our enemy."
Coraline nodded and untied Michael and Janelle helped him up. Coraline ran to the door and Michael and Janelle followed. They exited the room and soon exited the hotel and headed out to Sally's house to drop her off. All the way there, Michael and Janelle were secretly holding hands...fingers laced together. They stopped at a restaurant and got some breakfast and headed out once again, eating on the way to Sally's house.
Arriving At Sally's House
Bill stopped the car and they all got out. Janelle and Michael released each other's hands and headed up the steps with Coraline and knocked on the door.
"Coming!" Sally shouted.
She got to the door and opened it to see Coraline, Michael and Janelle. She smiled.
"Hey, guys! Well well, I think कद्दू is gonna have some fun, huh, little Indian?" Sally said, kneeling down to Coraline's height.
Coraline giggled and nodded and ran inside and towards Pumpkin's room. Sally got up and looked at Michael's and Janelle's hands and smirked a little.
"What's going on with आप two?"
"W-What do आप mean?" Janelle asked, starting to blush a little.
Sally giggled. "Are आप and Michael...you know..." She pointed to their hands. "Dating?"
Michael and Janelle looked at their hands and quickly released, blushing a little. Sally knew something was up with them.
"Come on, आप can tell me. I promise to keep it a secret."
Michael looked around and nodded a little. "Yes...we are dating." He whispered to her, blushing a little.
Sally was in awe. "Awe how cute. I had a feeling आप two would end up together." She whispered back. "But don't worry. Your secret is सुरक्षित with me."
"Thanks, Sally. Well, we gotta go now. Later!" Janelle कहा and left with Michael to the studio in the limo.
Sally giggled and went inside, muttering to herself. "He has scored himself a lucky young lady alright. She's a keeper for him. I know it."
She went to the living room and sat down, watching and listening to कद्दू and Coraline play Indian.
At The Studio
Michael and Janelle arrived just 10 मिनटों before rehearsals were gonna start. They had the last bit of rehearsals on the set here the rest of the week before going off in two weeks to the station to record what happens there...the song. While they had time, they went through the dance together for about 5 minutes. After the 5 मिनट rehearsal of the dance, they sat down on the ground, against the दीवार and panted. Michael turned to Janelle.
"That was amazing. I think we got a shot at pulling this together with everyone else." He said.
Janelle turned to him. "I think so, too. Everyone should be able to do it when we get the chance to rehearse it with them." She said.
Michael scooted अगला to her and took her hand in his and kissed her hand. She smiled a little and kissed his hand back. They looked at each other and leaned in and were about to kiss...until they heard Martin Scorsese enter.
"Michael, Janelle! Come on, आप two!" He said.
Michael and Janelle quickly let go of each other's hands and stood up and headed onto the set, all dressed up and ready to get the अगला scene ready. Once they were on the set for the अगला scene, Martin yelled action to start. Janelle was walking down the hallway with Michael, heading out of the school and to the bus. (Me: Yes, I'm switching to character mode for them.)
"Where do आप live, Lauren?" He asked.
Janelle, being like Lauren, was too shy to say anything, so she handed him her address for him to look at.
"Hey, आप live near me!" He said, excited to get the opportunity to walk her home.
"Oh? I-I do?" She asked shyly.
He nodded. "I live a couple apartments down from yours."
She smiled a little, knowing that her new friend lived close to her and she could ask him anything if she needed any help. What she didn't know was his life outside of school. Once they got off the bus and got on the train, they talked about the most बिना सोचे समझे things going on in school. Daryl caught her up on everything that she missed before and agreed to help her study for any test. When the train reached its stop, they got off and headed down the सड़क, स्ट्रीट together, side द्वारा side. Daryl's buddies saw him coming down the street, but saw a girl अगला to him and they had walked up a different set of stairs to a different apartment. Mini Max (Wesley) paid close attention to what was going on.
"T-Thanks for walking me home, Daryl."
He smiled a little. "It was no trouble, Lauren. Remember, I'm just a couple apartments down from here. Come over anytime if आप need any help, okay?"
She nodded. "Okay. Thank you."
She fiddled with her keys and finally found her apartment key and opened the door and went inside. Daryl went over to his buddies and went inside his apartment and most of the others wondered where Mini Max went. (Switching back to real names) Little did they know, Wesley was in Janelle's apartment set, trying to make a हटाइए on her.
"No! Get off of me!!" She shouted from her apartment set.
"Cut!" Martin shouted, frustrated.
Michael ran out of his apartment, wondering what was going on. He asked his फ्रेंड्स what was going on.
"Who screamed?" He asked.
"I think it was Janelle, Mike. Wesley might have gone into her apartment set." One of them said.
Michael freaked out and ran to her apartment and opened the door to see her pinned up against the दीवार द्वारा Wesley.
"Get off of her!" He said, running up to them and pulling Wesley off of her.
Janelle was so scared that she ran off, almost in tears from what Wesley was trying to do to her. Michael couldn't believe what he was trying to do to Janelle! He had seen clearly that his hand was gonna go into her pants! He glared at him and ran off after Janelle, hoping that she was okay.
Janelle was gonna be scarred for life द्वारा what Wesley almost did to her. She hid in the alley and slid down the दीवार and cried, rocking back and forth, holding herself and shaking.
Michael was trying to find Janelle. He was so worried about her and since he was her secret boyfriend, he couldn't help but worry.
"Oh Janelle...where are you?" He muttered.
He ran past the alley and heard someone crying. He recognized it and backed up and looked to see Janelle in the alley, rocking back and forth, crying and shaking.
"Oh my God! Janelle!" He ran into the alley and kneeled in front of her. He put a hand on her shoulder, making her jump a bit. "Don't worry, Janelle. It's me, Michael. Are आप okay?"
She shook her head, closing her eyes, letting the tears fall. "I'm not okay, Michael! Wesley almost got into my pants!"
"I saw it, Janelle. But don't worry. You're सुरक्षित now. I'm never letting आप out of my sight."
He wrapped his arms around her and rubbed her back and he let her cry on his shoulder. She wasn't sure if she should go on with the rehearsals anymore from this incident that almost happened...Wesley almost raping her...it brought back the time she was 16 and she was raped द्वारा Katie's older brother Chris. Wesley did the same thing that Chris did to her when she was 16. Michael was so worried that it would happen again to her, that's why he कहा that he would never let her out of his sight. He was frightened that it would happen again. Janelle was the same way...frightened that it would and possibly could happen again. She'd be reliving the rape incident...and she didn't ever wanna go through that again...ever.
