I shake my head trying to clear my thoughts. Everything is moving too fast. I step away from you breaking the buzzing current between us. "Can you take me home ?" I say in a whisper. I need to be away from you. I dont want this to get farther than what it is already. "Ariana." You say in a whisper. I don't answer. I honestly dont know what to say. I'm not the same girl i was 10 years. She's been gone for a while. We both turn as we hear a knock on the door. The door opens and closes. Her voice is clear bell - like. She's saying something about ties and going early somewhere. Your walking out the room. Your voice is hushed. Hers is now hushed. I know your talking about me. Then it goes silent. Soon i hear footsteps. Then your both in the room. "Ariana?" The woman says who i see is Carmen. "Carmen ?" I say confused. She gives me a small smile. Carmen is beautiful. She's a light caramel color. Her hair black and lush. She's the same height as me 5'7. Her body curvy. But like your's her eyes are different. I'm used to them being a dark blue. But now there a burnt gold. "Hi , Ariana." Carmen says in a warm tone. Carmen was one the most beautiful girls at school. She was also the nicest. She just disappeared one day. "You're alive ?" I say staring at her. She smiles. "Yes , i am." I look at you. Your staring at me. I'm trying to put two and two together. How ya'll know one another. "Is she coming with us tonight ?" Carmen said breaking the silence. I look back at her. "Going where ?" I say. Carmen looks at me. "My friend is having an art showcase." She says. "Would you like to go Ariana ?" You say. I look at you and your eyes are daring me to say no. "It will be fun." Carmen says in an reassuring tone. "I dont have anything to wear." I say looking for an out. "I bought two dresses." Carmen says with a knowing smile. I let out a defeated breathe while Carmen's smile widens.
"You can pick the one you want to wear." Carmen says pointing to the dresses on the bed. "it's your decision." I say. Carmen shakes her head lightly. She hands me a long sleeve dress with a colorful pattern and sends me to the bathroom. I close the bathroom door behind me. I avoid looking into the mirror. I dress quickly. I open the door. Carmen turns to me smiling. "That looks even better on you than me." She says. I look down at the dress. It's cute and feels really comfortable on too. "Come on." Carmen says patting her hand on a chair. I walk over and sit down quietly. Carmen starts working on me quietly. I close my eyes enjoying the way her hands feel light agaisnt my skin. She touches a light bruise on my face. I wince away slightly. "I'm sorry for whatever happened to you." Carmen says in a sincere tone. I open my eyes to find hers. Her eyes hold sorrow but thats all i find. "Thank you." She takes my hand in hers. "Your welcome."
I look at myself in the mirror. I look pretty. Carmen did a good job. My hair is an high bun. My makeup simple. Carmen stands behind me. She looks amazing. She has on a black strapless striped dress that fits her body like a glove. her hair is in big curls that fall perfectly. Her makeup slightly smoky. "You ready ?" She says looping arms with me she cool. I nod my head yes. We walk out. Your standing by the door. Your staring at me. "Doesn't she look gorgeous ?" Carmen says staring at you. You look me up and down. Your eyes gleam with something. "Very much." You say. My heart skips a beat. "Thank you." I say a whisper. Carmen smiles. You smile and turn opening the door for us. The air is cool around me. We all get into Carmen's car . You open the door for me. "Carmen you can sit in the front." I say moving aside. She shakes her head lightly. "No you go head." Carmen says sitting in the backseat. I sit in the front. You close the door behind me. You get in and were on our way. The car ride is nice. it's quiet but a nice silence. We reach a small building. I hear music and people. Nerves roll lightly in my stomach. You take my hand. It's cool but feels nice agaisnt my skin. I look at you and i instantly calm down. "Ya'll ready ?" Carmen says breaking our moment. "Yes." I say.
The small building is beautiful. There's art everywhere. It's amazing. "Carmen ?" I hear a feminine voice call. "Hey." Carmen says excitedly. I see a beautiful girl with dark auburn hair holding Carmen. She steps back and her beauty is stunning. She is about 5'6. Her skin is a creamy white. Her eyes round and remind me of melted chocolate. She smiles at me. "Hello i'm Renesmee Black." She says. "Hi , i'm Ariana." I say. Renesmee looks at you and pulls you into a big hug. She whispers something in your ear . You step back and nod lightly. She looks back at me and smiles. "Thank you for coming to my show." She says. "Thank you for having me." I say. "We'll i need to mingle a little bit the family is around and there going to be so happy to see ya'll." Renesmee says before walking away. "Do you want something to drink ?" You say. "Yes , thank you." I say. You walk away and i turn and look at the art. I find myself staring at a painting. It's so vivid. Burnt oranges and mustards yellow are the backgroud. There's a man in the middle of the painting. His skin a burnt caramel color. His hair a dark black contrasting beautifully agaisnt his skin. He's beautiful. It's almost looks like the sun is creating him. "Yeah , our baby painted that." I hear a man say. "It's stunning." A woman said behind me. I look behind me. I meet the eyes of the man. The woman gasps. Your eyes are like mine. Your lips are bigger than mine but the shape is there. "She looks just like Arie." The woman says. "Ariana ?" The man says. My heart stops. I see black spots in my vision. Then everything is dark around me.
