Where He Brought Me From

Chapter 3: This is your song

3.5 This is your song: When one door closes….

 

Jessica and the other contestants had been in the lobby for almost an hour when Kash came to call them to the back office. They all slowly rose up from their seats slowly and in a single file line followed Kash to the back. He lead them to the office where all the judges with serious looks on their faces. As he opened the office door they all entered and sat on one side of the rectangle table as the judges sat on the other. Kash followed them in and sat beside the other judges.

 

“Okay” Kash said. “We have made a decision and I’m sorry Lyric you didn’t make the cut” Kash said to the other female contestant. “Head back to the lobby the receptionist has a nice gift bag for you” he added.

 

As lyric got up from her chair she looked very disappointed. She said “thank you for the opportunity” and left the room.

 

As soon as she had left the room Kash turned back to the others contestants. “Otis Lee” he said as he looked at the male contestant. “We chose you” he said.

 

Jessica’s heart sank as he finished the sentence. Everything in the room seemed to go in slow motion. She watched as Kash shook his hand and he said thank you over and over again.

 

“Jessica” Kash said as he looked at her with a smile on his face. “We chose you for another position” he said.

 

“Really? What position?” Jessica asked.

 

“The new artist position, Otis Lee is going to help you write for your new album he told her. After you sung your song the group thought collectively that you were to good to be behind the scenes he said. Then after we checked out some of your performances on the internet we made an unanimous decision to give you a record deal.”

 

Jessica began to cry as she said thank you and shook everyone’s hand. She couldn’t believe this, she had finally made it.

 

“I just need you guys to look over these contracts and bring them back tomorrow signed before two pm Kash said.  We have lawyers who can go over the contracts with you or you can use your own, if you decide to use our lawyers just let the receptionist know Kash said. We will see you two tomorrow he said.”

 

Jessica left the office ecstatic, as she walked down the hallway back to the lobby she could not stop smiling. She could not wait to tell her sister Jennifer about her record deal. When Jessica got on the elevator her phone vibrated to let her know she had received a message. Jessica reached in her pocket and pulled out her cell phone, the message was from Kash. The message said congratulations on your new job I know you are going to do well, lets have dinner tonight to let celebrate. Jessica wrote back thank you. See you at eight Kash wrote. The elevator stopped and Jessica started dialing her sister’s number as she got off the elevator.

 

“Hey Jen, I got some good news she said as her sister answered the phone. I got a record deal she said. I’m celebrating tonight with my boyfriend around eight if you are free she added.”

 

Jessica loved being able to throw this in her sister’s smug face and the fact that her boyfriend was richer than Jennifer’s fiancé.

 

“I’m free Jennifer said.”

 

Jennifer said bye and hung up the phone. Jennifer was not particularly excited for Jessica but she was curious and very critical of everything Jessica did. She wanted to know more about this record deal and this boyfriend of hers.

Chapter 3: Boss Bitch

3.5 Boss Bitch: Checkmate

 

“Okay everyone is dismissed, get back to work” Mr. Rojas said. “Come on, I’ll show you your office” he said as he leaned over and whispered in Aaliyah’s ear. They waited until everyone had left the meeting room then Mr. Rojas led Aaliyah to her new office. The office was enormous she could see why everyone wanted this job. Her dad went over to her new desk and called her new sectary. “Can you bring in folder with the list of perks, contracts and the job duties” he said over the intercom.

 

“Yes sir” the sectary answered.

 

“I know you basically know how to do this job but I am still going to go over some things” he said as he looked at Aaliyah seriously. “I know the reason you wanted this job but you still have to do well and take it seriously” he added.

 

“Dad I will” Aaliyah said as the sectary walked in and handed her father the folder.

 

Mr. Rojas handed Aaliyah the folder and said “read over this and sign the contracts”.

 

“Yes father” she said.

 

“Okay you start tomorrow bright and early” her father said.

 

Mr. Rojas gave a Aaliyah a hug then left her office. Aaliyah stayed and looked around for a bit. She was staring out of the big glass window when she heard a knock at her door. Aaliyah turned around to see Raquel standing there with an irate look on her face.

 

“Yes” Aaliyah said.

 

“Really, Aaliyah?” Raquel asked.

 

“What?” Aaliyah asked.

 

“You know what you only took this job to get back at me!” Raquel yelled.

 

“Lower your voice you ratchet bitch” Aaliyah said through clenched teeth. “What did you expect?, you threatened me and tried to sleep with my boyfriend” Aaliyah said. “I think I let you off easy” Aaliyah said with a laugh when she saw how upset Raquel was getting.

 

“You don’t deserve Dominic” Raquel said.

 

“And you do?” Aaliyah asked. “Someone who stabs their best friend in the back numerous times” Aaliyah added. “Get off your high horse you are not that great of person Raquel, if want a war you got one just make sure you are ready to fight” Aaliyah said. “You know what you have always wanted everything I have had, why don’t you grow up already?” Aaliyah said as Raquel stormed out of the room.

 

Raquel was livid but Aaliyah was right, Raquel was jealous of her she wanted everything she had. She could not help it she had been jealous of Aaliyah ever since they were kids. She was sick of her getting everything she wanted prom queen, the quarterback, a  modeling contract and now one of the richest most eligible bachelors in the USA. Raquel had to step her game up because Aaliyah had made it known she had came to play.

 

Aaliyah was standing in her office gazing out the window with a huge smile on her face when her phone rang. Aaliyah went to her purse laying on her desk and took out her phone. “Hey Pamela” she said as she answered the phone.

 

“I’m outside do you want me to come up?” Pamela asked.

 

“No I’m coming down” she said and hung up the phone.

 

Aaliyah did not want Pamela to come up to the office and be seen by Raquel because she may get an idea of what Aaliyah had planned. Pamela knew Raquel’s ex personally, he was her cousin and from what Aaliyah heard the break up was really bad. Aaliyah even heard Raquel had stalked him for months after he ended it. She never took any stock in the claims because Raquel was her friend but now she was starting to wonder if the stories were true. Those kind of accusations if true, could be irreversible damaging to Raquel’s reputation and career.
