Where He Brought Me From
Chapter 3: This is your song
3.3 This is your song: Winner
Jessica rode the elevator up to the fifth floor to Kash’s office. As she stepped off of the elevator and walked up to the front desk she continued to turn heads.
“Hi, I’m here for the writing competition my name is Jessica Kealoha” Jessica said to the girl at the front desk.
“Okay, just have a seat in the lobby with the rest of the contestants” the sectary told her as she checked her name off of a list.
Jessica walked over to the lobby and sat down with her lyrics and music in hand. She was so nervous as she looked around at the other contestants. They all looked so serious but more worried about who she was than anything. Jessica was in awe of the impact that an expensive dress and shoes had on people. The competition was afraid of her before they had even heard what she could do. Kash was an intelligent business man and Jessica thought to herself maybe he had a reason for sending her his car and this fabulous dress. She was definitely making a bold statement and once they heard her song she knew she would really put fear in them.
Jessica picked up a magazine to read as she quietly waited for Kash to call them Back. While she waited she began to hum her song and tap her feet. She heard a door open and she looked up from the magazine she was thumbing through to see Kash. Kash walked to the front desk and grabbed the list and called the first name on it. Jessica watched as the first contestant, a woman walked up. Kash smiled at Jessica then he led the woman to his office. Jessica went back to reading her magazine and humming her song.
After fifteen minutes the woman came back from Kash’s office and sat down in the lobby. Jessica watched as Kash called the next contestant back, a man and she began to get anxious. The first contestant was not giving anything away with her facial expression, so Jessica couldn’t tell how things had went. She knew Kash was not going to be the only one making decision about who would be hired on and she knew she would have some tough critics to impress. She was trying to stay focused and not second guess her talent. She had been waiting her entire life for this moment. Jessica started to remember something she had written in her diary a while back when had first moved to New York and had gotten her first gig. I decided to take a day off and reflect on my life. Everyone should have a day to himself or herself; I believe it’s extremely important. In a world where its easy to lose yourself trying to fit in, we have to remember where we’ve been to know how far we’ve come. I’m where I’m at because of myself and God and I’m who I am because I never forgot that. If God be for me, who can be against me? Then she took a deep breath just as the second contestant came back to the lobby and Kash called her back.
