Isabel looked at her surrounding and she smiled. She couldn’t be happier. She had her best friends and her first cover shot on Cosmo. hey were all at a club celebrating Isabel’s achievement.

"We’re celebrating, she says, it’ll be fun, she says," Michael said glaring at Liz.

"Stop complaining, Michael, we’re here for Isabel," Liz said.

Michael hadn’t had a good experience so far. The waitress spilled his drink all over him which resulted in him being sticky.

"I’m happy for her, I am... but I don’t see why I have to come along, there’s a game on tonight," Michael whined.

"Michael, shut up and be happy for my sister," Max said as he squeezed Liz’s hand.

"I am happy for Izzy. You know I’m happy for ya, right, Iz?" Michael said.

"Yes, Michael, and you didn’t have to come," Isabel said.

"See," Michael said to Liz as he got up.

Tess grabbed his arm and pulled him back down.

Michael opened his mouth to protest.

"Shhhhh... the performance is about to start," Liz said.

Michael glared at Tess as she leaned against Kyle.

"And we have a new and talented performer tonight. Here is Maria Deluca and her manager, Alex Whitman!" a lady who was dressed very casually said.

The lights went off as the audience’s applaud died down. Everything was quiet and then they heard a pretty strum from the guitar. A spotlight turned on and revealed a cute dark-haired lanky man playing the acoustic guitar.

Isabel looked at him. Apparently this man should be Alex, Isabel thought. hmmm... he’s kinda cute...

Michael tapped his fingers impatiently. Suddenly a beautiful low seductive voice washed over the room and Michael’s ears perked. Another spotlight turned on and showed a beautiful blond-haired girl.

I wonder if he has a girlfriend, Isabel was still thinking about him, What are you thinking, Is? That girl, Maria, is probably his girlfriend.

Michael’s eyes roamed up and down Maria’s petite body.

My tea's gone cold, I wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all
And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad


Maria opened her eyes and she saw the many little candles in the center of everyone’s table. But she made eye contact with the person who was sitting right in front of her. He had messy spiky hair and she kept the eye contact.

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again
And even if I'm there, they'll all imply that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it's not so bad, it's not so bad and


Alex looked up from playing his guitar... and right in front of him was the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen in his life. A blond girl who looked like she belonged in a cover of a magazine.

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life
Push the door, I'm home at last and I'm soaking through and through
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down now, I wouldn't have a clue
Because you're near me and
I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life.


Maria finished the song and the audience roared with applause. But Maria, Alex, Isabel and Michael were oblivious to it.
