         BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! I woke up to my alarm ringing. 5:30 AM it read. I hustled out of bed and got dressed. Another day of school. Mondays are the worst. I put on some make up and ate breakfast, brushing my teeth after for exactly 2 minutes. By then it was 6:45. My bus wouldn't come till another 15 minutes so I got on my laptop and started looking on my twitter. I scrolled through my dm's.
Tom: What's up?
Wesley: Nada. You?
Tom: Just waiting for the bus
Wesley: Same
Tom: Look out you window
        Tom was my best friend and neighbor. I walked over to my window and opened my curtains to see Tom waiting for me. I gave him a 'what?' look and his reply was simply him pointing to his wrist, with no watch. I turned my shoulder to see the time, 6:55 AM. I walked outside, even though our bus wasn't supposed to pick us up until 6:10, it always came 13 minutes early.
        "Whats up?" Tom asked
        "I already told you"
        "I know but you didn't really tell me anything... how's your singing?" he asked
        "Are you expecting me to go viral?" I asked
        "No, well kinda ya. You should start a youtube."
        "Not likely. I'll probably just turn out a doctor like my parents and grandpa" I said a bit sadly
        "Wes, you have talent. You shouldn't waste it. A talent gone to waste is a bird without wings"
        "Who said that?" I asked sarcastically. Tom likes to quote things a lot.
        "I did."
        "Well bravo." I applauded him
        Our bus pulled up and we both got on, sitting in seat 5, the emergency exit. Tom always suggested we sat there. He is brilliant really, but he is way too cautious. He says if the bus flips over we'd have the best shot at escaping and living. And I guess he is right but still. Its okay to be cautious but that's just a little too cautious. But I'm grateful for Tom. He's my only friend really and he supports me.
-Skip Bus Ride-
        We got to school 20 minutes before the bell rang so we said our goodbyes and headed to our first period class rooms. He went to computer science class, web designing, while I went to chorus class. My teacher welcomed me in so I took my seat and set my book bag down. I then pulled out the Song we were supposed to write and started revising it.  My teacher left the class room and I was alone so I decided to start singing while I played the piano. I really do like music.

You're out of excuses
My heart's sick of all these bruises
There's no more pretending
It's time I write my own ending
I knew it was over
That night in october
I felt you
I felt you start to pull away
I needed a shoulder
Wanted bad to hold ya
But somehow you seem to always find a way
To be in control
I'm taking it back
I'm taking it back
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
You made me cry
Too many times
Won't spend all my tears
You're not worth the price
So I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
New perfume I'm wearing
With your eyes closed
You wouldn't know me
I'm better
So different
Forgive you but I'll never forget
All the times what's the use
Screaming out
From the room
Out of air
That's when I finally start to breathe
Suddenly waterproof
And it's all thanks to you
Open eyes and now I think it's time for me
To be in control
I'm taking it back
I'm taking it back
 
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
You made me cry
Too many times
Won't spend all my tears
You're not worth the price
So I'm not gonna spend anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Won't spend all my tears
You're not worth the price
So I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
Just think
Of the money
I'll safe
Make Up
For the time you took away
Just think
Of the money
I'll safe
Make Up
For the time you took away
Refrain:
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
You ooh ooh ooh ooh
You made me cry
Too many times
Won't spend all my tears
You're not worth the price
So I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh
Won't spend all my tears
You're not worth the price
So I'm not gonna waste anymore mascara on you ooh ooh ooh ooh" I finished my song and looked up to see Logan standing in the doorway.
        "wow." He said as he stood in shock
        I blushed "umm... you heard that?" I said awkwardly
        "Yea... and it was amazing."
        "No it wasn't" I objected
        "yes it was. You know, your going places."
        I blushed again "Thanks" I mumbled. We sat there for a while until logan spoke up.
        "Um well I think the bell is going to ring so... um... I'm gonna go."
        "Ya, bye."
          He left. Smooth. I though mentally slapping my face. The rest of the day was going well until lunch.
        "WES!" Tom said running towards me. "did you see this?" he asked handing me his phone. I looked at the screen. It was a youtube video of me singing.
        "no. How did someone get ahold of this?"
        "I don't know, someone must have hacked into the security cameras or something but the whole school has seen it"
        Well great. Now the whole school can see my horrible singing. I thought.
        "Who would do this?"
        "What do you mean?"
        Then everything made sense. "It couldn't have been the security cameras because of the angle. The only other person there was..."
        "What?" Tom asked as I started walking towards the Jocks/
        "Sup hottie" one of them said to me.
        "Shut up, where's Logan?" I said as they pointed him out.
        "Why would you film me?" I said
        "Because you were good." he said
        "no I wasn't and even if I was why would you show the whole school without my permission?" I asked
        "Geez. Sorry. I'll delete it, okay?"
        "okay, do it." I said and walked away.
-skip to end of the day-
        I got on the bus and checked to see if logan had deleted the video. Surely he hadn't but the next thing I saw surprised me so much. My eyes widened as Tom looked at my face go pale.
        "What's wrong?" He asked as I simply handed him my phone. "I still don't see it-" he said, his voice fading as he saw the views. "You just-"
        "Went viral, ya I know."
        1.2 million views? How? I just sat there with my mouth gaped open.
