All throughout the beginning of the rehearsal, Michael and I kept glancing at each other. Well, not at the same time. If he saw me looking at him, I'd blush and turn away and I'd hear him giggle. Then vice versa. We worked on the beginning scene 20 times. It felt like a million times, though...to me, at least. We were due for a break soon, though...and I couldn't wait.
"Okay everyone, lunch break!" Frank said.
Kelly ran up to me with Sean and Brandon and hugged me. "You were great!" She told me, all excited.
I smiled and hugged her back and said, "Thanks. You, Sean and Brandon were great, too."
"Kelly, come on! Let's go grab some lunch!" Sean said.
Kelly stopped hugging me and turned to him. "Okay!" Then she turned back to me. "Wanna come with us? They set up lunch in the park."
"Hm...sure, why not?"
Kelly squealed, grabbed my hand and we all ran across the strada, via to the park. We all got plates and Kelly, Sean and Brandon got all the Cibo they could eat. I settled for some mashed potatoes and frutta salad. We sat under the albero I was under earlier that giorno and ate. Once we finished eating and threw away our plates, they went to play a little bit of soccer. I just stayed under the albero and watched them. I got out my sketchbook and started shading in the picture I had drawn earlier that day.
Michael had just thrown away his plate and he looked over at me. He wanted to know what I was doing, so he snuck up beside me and sat down successivo to me.
"What are te doing?" He asked.
I jumped and hit the back of my head on the tree. He gasped.
"Oh my God, are te alright?"
I looked at him and nodded, rubbing the back of my head. "Yeah, I-I'm fine. No worries."
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare te like that, Rebecca."
"Don't worry. I've had my brother scare me worse than that." I giggled.
He giggled. "Really?"
Michael looked at my sketchbook and saw my picture.
"Wow. That's really good."
I smiled a little. "Thanks. I had part of it done this morning before rehearsals started."
"Wow. Can I look through your sketchbook?"
I blushed a little, thinking, 'Oh gosh. He's gonna see all the pictures of him I've drawn. Should I?' Then I said, "Sure. Feel free to." I mentally slapped myself.
He took my sketchbook from me and started looking through it. He saw the pictures of himself and pretended to run his fingers over them. He then saw a drawing collage of him from when he was little up to now. I bit my lip, slightly nervous from what he'd think. He smiled from looking at the pictures and handed me my sketchbook.
"Those pictures are beautiful. You're really talented." He said.
"They aren't that good..." I told him.
"Yes they are! They are better than mine."
I looked at him in shock. "You think so?"
"Yes, I know so."
I handed him my sketchbook and my pencil. "I'll be the judge of that. Could te draw something for me?"
He smiled a little and blushed. "Sure."
He took my sketchbook and pencil and started drawing something random.
After 30 Minutes
He finished the picture da signing it. He then handed the sketchbook and pencil back to me.
"Here te go. It's not that good." He said.
I raised my eyebrow and looked at the picture and saw that he drew...me? My eyes went wide.
"Oh my gosh...this is beautiful, Michael." I told him.
He giggled and blushed a little. "Thanks, Rebecca."
I looked through my other pictures and I took out the collage and gave it to him. He looked at me in shock and took it.
"Are te sure te wanna give me this, Rebecca?"
"Yeah. If it's alright with te for me to keep the picture te drew for me."
He smiled. "Of course it's alright with me. Thank you."
Soon enough, we heard our names being called. "Michael! Rebecca! Kelly, Sean and Brandon! It's time to head back to rehearsals!" Called Frank.
I put my sketchbook back in my bag.
"Could te put the picture in your bag? I don't think I'll have enough time to get it to my trailer. Let alone my house."
"No worries. I'll put it in my bag."
I took the picture and carefully put it in my bag and we headed back to the rehearsals.
(Me: Again, feeling lazy lol) We perfected the scenes we started. I noticed that it was starting to storm a bit. I looked out the window, wondering if Alex knew it would storm and if he'd be picking me up. Kelly, Sean and Brandon had asked me if I needed a ride, but I had told them that my brother was picking me up, so they had left. I continued looking out the window, watching the lightning and hearing the thunder.
Michael saw me da the window and came over.
"You alright, Rebecca? You've been staring out the window for 15 minutes." He asked.
I sighed and shook my head. "No. I think my brother forgot to pick me up because of the storm." I said.
"Well...I can have Bill take te home."
I looked at him. "Really? You'd do that for me?"
He smiled a little and sat successivo to me, putting his arm around my shoulder. "Of course I would. Come on, I'll take te home."
I giggled and he looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
"What are te giggling about?"
"That line te detto reminded me of Thriller."
He thought about it and giggled himself. "Oh yeah, it does."
We got up and headed to his car and got in and Bill started driving. I took the picture out and gave it back to Michael.
"Here, before I forget."
"I was actually gonna ask about it, Rebecca." He said, giggling.
We giggled and soon chatted away about things. We found out a lot about each other and became really close friends.
After 15 Minutes
Bill stopped the car and Michael opened the door for me.
"Thanks so much for the ride." I said.
"No problem. See te tomorrow?" Michael asked.
"Yeah. Later, Michael." I smiled.
They soon drove off. I went inside and went up to my room and rehearsed for the song.
