😇Beck Oliver’s POV😇
Prom is in two weeks. Preparations have already kicked off. I have to start learning new dance steps and all that. Andre has promised to teach Victorious a song that they could sing that night
I feel like everything is going to turn out fine because Tori and I plan to introduce each other to our parents. I’m sure my mom is going to like her a lot. And I hope her dad likes me too
The only disturbance right now is Emily, she keeps calling me even after telling her that I’m in school. Trina is no longer on my neck. Maybe she has decided to take a break from me.
I haven’t even seen Andre today, after school yesterday he went straight to the restaurant where he still works. Maybe I should check out the music room
I left dance class and went into music class. Well I saw him there, but it wasn’t only him that I saw. He was with someone who I never expected to see him with.
I gawked at them for some seconds before clearing my throat
They looked at me
Jade: oh hey Beck
She smiled and clasped her hands in front of her
Andre: hey buddy
Me: can I come in?
Jade: you’re already in
Andre: come on in
I walked to them
Me: what are you guys doing?
He saw the look of disbelief in my eyes and smiled
Andre: I’m actually helping Jade out with a solo
Me: For the prom?
Jade: no. Not for the prom
Me: all right. Uhm, Andre I wanted to ask you if you’ve seen Robbie today
Andre: he’s not been coming to school
Andre: his freaky parents grounded him for failing at assignment
Me: just that?
I looked at Jade who’s eyes were closed and wearing a headset. I wonder if it’s a funeral song she’s listening to
I nudged Andre and pointed to her then to him. He smirked understanding what I meant. I just told him to explain to me what’s with the two of them. Knowing he was as terrified of Jade like I was.
Me: well, I’ll be going now. See you later
I left and went straight to their special class. I wanna see Tori
I knocked on the door
Cat: who is it?
Cat: oh my gosh!
I puzzled my face. What are they doing in there?
Me: can I come in?
I wanted to peep in but I decided not to
Me: ok…aay… I’m going….
I turned around and tool few steps before meeting up with Tori
Tori: Beck, I was looking for you
Me: ohh. Me too. That’s why I came here but I thought you were inside
I pointed to the class with my thumb
Tori: oh, you checked and didn’t see me
Me: actually I didn’t check. I knocked and Cat answered, she told me not to come in
Tori’s eyes widened
Me: why are you looking like that?
She stormed towards the door and opened it. Cat screamed from inside
Tori: what the heck!
She entered inside and I went to the door. Cat was in the middle of some stuff. Some girlie stuff on the floor. It seems she upturned their bags and has been searching for something
Cat: I didn’t do anything. I wasn’t looking for money
Tori: what is wrong with you? Why did you do this?
Cat: forgive me Tori. Forgive me
She knelt down and began to cry
Cat: don’t tell Jade please
I walked inside
Cat stood up and ran to me. She hugged me from behind and encircled her hands around my waist, crying
Tori: let go of my boyfriend you bibble-freak
Cat: Beck please don’t let her come to me
I held her hands and removed them then hugged her sideways.
Tori: why are you acting like a psycho?
Cat: it’s because I want bibble. And my parents won’t give me any money. My Nona has seized my credit card and won’t allow me to shopping. It’s just like I’m grounded. That’s why I ransacked your bags for money so I could buy more bibble
Me: I don’t get it. Why would your parents do that to you
Cat didn’t answer. Tori crossed her arms
Tori: there’s this new snack called bibble that Cat is crazy about. She wasted all her money and savings in one week buying it and consuming it all. She became broke and began to ask her parents for money. They gave her but she still squandered it on bibble. Now they’ve stopped giving her money and she’s now stealing our own money just because of bibble!
She glared at Cat
Cat: it’s not my fault I’m in love with bibble the same way you’re in love with Beck. How would you feel if your parents tried to separate you and Beck!?
Tori and I stared at Cat mutely. None of us said anything
The door opened and Jade walked in
Cat: oh no…
Jade: what happened here? Why are my things on the floor!!
Cat trembled. I pulled her backwards
Me: sorry. It was an accident on our part. We’ll repair it now
Jade: in two seconds.
She quickly went there and began to arrange the things
Me: let me help you
I went to her, bent down and began to arrange the things
Jade: I invited my cousin for the prom
Tori : what!! Why?
Jade: I felt like
Tori: come on, you know I hate that girl
Jade: you hate her doesn’t stop her from being my cousin. Even though I used to hate her
Tori: she’s so picky and miss perfect. Ugh!
Cat: and she sings like a frog
The three girls laughed
Me: Jade you have a cousin?
Tori: don’t answer him. Forget it, she doesn’t have a cousin. And stay off any girl you see is more beautiful than me
Jade: Cat is more beautiful than you
I looked at Cat’s face.
Me: hmm, I love your dimples
Tori: hey! Get up
She pulled me up
Me: I’m sorry. I love your smile
Tori: you’re crazy. Let’s go
I laughed and followed her. I just love this girl. She’s so cute
We got outside the class into the hallway and I held her hand
She stopped and turned
Me: aren’t we supposed to be talking about meeting our parents?
Tori: dad wants to see you on Friday night
Me: okay, where?
Tori: our house
Me: I’ll be there
I smiled at her but she frowned. Time to use my charm
I used my index finger to flick my hair a little. I licked my lips and pocketed my left hand.
Me: I’ll be going. I’ll see you tomorrow
I walked past her
Tori: where are you going?
She twitched her lips
I turned and walked away only to look back and see Tori trailing behind. I laughed
Me: where are you going?
She didn’t answer me, she just walked past me. I pulled her by the waist and hugged her
Me: my baby
I kissed her ear and down to her cheek
Tori: leave me
Tori: I’m joking
Me: I know
She laughed and I kissed her
😇Tori Vega’s POV😇
I gave my last touch of makeup and twirled round
I turned and opened my door. Trina was standing right there, with her hands crossed
Me: how may I help you?
Trina: you’re dating Beck?
Her tone was really harsh
Trina : ugh! I hate you so much. Why didn’t you tell me? You made me look like a fool!
Me: why should I tell you? When did we become that close?
Trina: you knew I was into that guy. You knew it
Me: well… I wanted to surprise you so… Tadaaa!
Trina: ironically speaking, I wish you a happily ever after
She smirked and walked away. I scoffed and went downstairs
Moments later, Beck, dad and I were seated on the dinning table, eating and chatting slowly. From the look on dad’s face, he’s really happy to meet Beck and vice versa. I’m very happy that the two of them are getting along quite well
Dad: Beck, I don’t wanna hide this anymore. You look really familiar.
I looked at him then I looked at dad
Beck: uhh, Sir maybe you’ve seen me before
Dad: maybe. I wish I could just deduce it.
I smiled and looked at Beck. He’s so handsome
😇Beck Oliver’s POV😇
Prom night is here so fast. I’m looking my best. I should win prom king
I haven’t even seen my girlfriend.
Tori: hey baby
I looked back and saw the prettiest girl tonight
She was wearing a green dress and looked expensive. I know the dress is expensive. Tori herself is expensive
Me: the lady I’m looking for
I hugged her
Tori: you look awesome baby. You’re so handsome tonight. I don’t even know how to express myself now
Me: wait, I’m the one who’s supposed to be praising your beauty but you’re the one telling me how handsome I am
Me: you look really beautiful. You’re so pretty
I kissed her cheek
Someone said hello behind me. I turned to see Emily
Emily: hi handsome
She hugged me
Me: what are you doing here?
Emily: I was invited
Tori: excuse me
Tori moved forward and Emily frowned
Tori: who do we have here?
The two girls stared at each other
💃 Tori Vega’s POV 💃
Beck: she’s— the daughter of my boss
Me: oh, wow. Uhm nice to meet you
I stretched forth my hand to shake her. She reluctantly took my hand and we had a hand shake
I pretended as if I didn’t know her and she did the same
Me: I’ll just excuse you both.
I smiled and turned to go
Beck: where are you going?
I turned back to him
Me: to get a soda or something…
He nodded and I turned around and walked away
I have a feeling Beck is hiding something but I don’t know what it is. And it has to do with that Emily. The girl I hate so much. How the heck did they get to know each other?
Right now, I need to be stable to be able to sing tonight. I don’t want different thoughts running into my mind. By the way, where is Cat and Jade?
I looked around and saw them standing by the drink shade. I walked towards them
Cat: hey baby..
Jade: what’s up?
She handed me a canned cola
I opened it up immediately and began to gulp it down. I threw the empty can into the garbage and began to fan myself
Cat and Jade stared at me like I was a ghost
Me: quit staring at me like that?
Cat: are you okay?
Jade: why are you tensed up?
Me: nothing. Can I get another drink?
Cat: sure… I’ll pay…
Jade: no. You’re not getting another drink
Jade: Tori, you’re going to sing tonight. If you take in too much gas, it might affect your voice
Me: so what should I take?
Jade: take a seat
She pointed to a tall stool and I sat on it
Jade: now tell us why you’re like this?
Me: I’m fine
Cat: oh my gosh, there’s a pretty girl flirting with Beck
I stood up immediately with a frowned face
Me: whaat! Where?
She pointed at Beck and Emily afar off. I gnashed my teeth
Jade didn’t care when she saw Emily with Beck
Jade: sit down
I ignored her and watched as Beck tried to avoid Emily’s touch.
Jade: Tori! Sit!
I looked at her and saw the look on her face. I gently sat down
Jade: are you having problems with Beck?
I shook my head
Jade: then what’s happening
Me: I feel he’s hiding something from me. And he’s with your cousin. Emily
Cat: guys Beck is coming over here.
I looked up and saw him coming without the girl
Jade : try to talk to him. Or just talk with him instead. I’ll take care of the Emily
Jade walked away
Cat: love you
She hugged me and left. I smiled and sighed as Beck came closer
I looked up at his face
He took my hand and squeezed it..
My voice was soft and tender
He bent down and looked up to my face
Beck: are you angry with me?
Me: over what?
He squeezed my hand sweetly
Beck: because I was talking to another girl. And she was flirting with me
The way he said it made me laugh a little. He kissed my palm softly and lingered for seconds
Me: I’m–I’m not angry
He looked up into my eyes
Beck: but you’re not happy?
I didn’t answer
He sighed and stood up then pulled me up.
Beck: when will you go up to perform?
Me: in about twenty minutes
Beck: okay, I’ll be going up in thirty minutes.
He tucked my arm under his arm and we walked together
Beck: Emily is Mr Brown’s daughter. She’s, well…
I looked up at his face and he looked down at mine.
Me: go on..
Beck: she’s somehow a friend.
Beck: you’re so cute when you’re jealous you know
I hit his chest
Me: stop messing with me and talk to me
He turned and faced me then held my hands over his neck. We were already in the school building which was empty
Beck: she’s crushing on me.
Me: and she’s so pretty
Beck: but not as pretty as you are
He kissed my cheek
Me: Beck… You’re teasing me
Beck: I’m serious.
I pouted my lips and looked away
Beck: I love you
I looked at him
Beck: I love you Tori
A smile came across my face
Me: I love you too Beck
He smiled and bent over and placed those cute lips on mine. I closed my eyes and parted my lips, then felt his warm silky tongue slipping in.
Me: I wanna see your mom. Dad wants to meet with her too
Beck: I’ll tell her about it tonight
I smiled and hugged him tight

❗Trina Vega’s POV ❗
I angrily walked out of the hall and rushed outside. This is so unbelievable.
I can’t believe this!
Tori and Beck are going out?
How long has this been going on and I didn’t even know.
I beeped my car and opened the door then got inside, I turned on the ignition and zoomed off still in my angry mode. I’m going to make sure that Tori and Beck don’t stand. They can’t remain together. Tori has always been ahead of me but this time I’m not going to let this happen.
And dad even knows about this, to the extent he’s inviting Beck for dinner. I know Tori feels she has won again but no, I’m retaliating. First, i need to find a way to make them fight. So I’ll have an opportunity.
Tonight is their prom right?
Let me see what I can do
⬛Emily Brown’s POV⬛
Tori again? I really don’t like this girl. What does she have to do with Beck?
And I’m sure Beck excused himself because he wants to go and see her
I just hope they’re not dating. I took a canned cola and opened it. I brought it to my mouth and gulped down a mouthful, I lowered the can and saw Jade right in front of me. This girl has the ability to move undetected.
Me: are you a witch? How did you come here? And I didn’t see you coming
She didn’t answer, just kept staring at me
Me: Jade, stop terrifying me with that face
Jade: do you know why I invited you here? So you could see other young girls possessing what you don’t have
Me: and what’s that? Beauty?
I smirked because I know when it comes to beauty, I rank first
Jade: no, brains and talent
Jade: you lack brains and talent
Me: and what do you know? It’s not like you’re any better. You are a bitch and a witch
Jade: I’m a witch not a bitch. And don’t make me loose my temper on you because you know the aftermath of it
I remembered the last time I got Jade angry, my leg was in a bandage for two weeks and I had to attend therapy
Me: why are you even saying all of this?
Jade: stay away from Beck
Me: oh great. When did you become Tori’s yo-yo
Jade’s eyes widened angrily. I staggered back
Me: so–sorry. I’m sorry
Jade: you know who Tori is to me and you know how much I hate it if she’s hurt. Stay away from Beck Emily
Me: whatever, Beck’s not the only handsome boy
I handed her my drink and walked away. I’m leaving this stupid prom
I walked to the parking lot and almost got run down by a car that drove in roughly
I stepped out of the way and waited for the driver to come out. A girl came out
Me: you almost ran me over
Girl: that’s because you walked too slow or too fast. If you walked slower or faster, I wouldn’t get that close to you
I scoffed and walked to my car
Me: I’m not in the mood to talk with bitches on red
I entered the car and drove away angrily
⬜Trina Vega’s POV⬜
I frowned at her car as it drove out. She called me a bitch on red. Well she’s a bitch on blue
I rolled my eyes and walked to the prom arena
I looked around and saw Jade standing with Cat. I quickly looked away and walked behind a pole. I looked at another direction and saw Tori and Beck holding hands, walking forward. I heaved a sigh and walked to them
Me: hey sis. Why didn’t you invite me to your prom night?
Tori: maybe you’re not needed. You’re not even a student and when you were, you weren’t a noble one.
Me: hello Beck
Beck: hello Trina
I looked him over and smiled
Me: you look so handsome tonight. You’re so gorgeous Beck. What’s your secret?
I ran my hand on his chest and Tori’s eyes widened. He frowned and removed my hand and placed it on my chest
Beck: you shouldn’t do that
I felt embarrassed a little
Beck: baby, I’ll excuse you
He pecked her on the lips and walked away
I rolled my eyes
Me: you are happy right? Cause a rich and handsome guy is your boyfriend
Tori: first of all, I’m not dating Beck because of riches and handsomeness. I’m from a wealthy family and I don’t need someone’s money. Secondly, Beck is not ri….
Me: Beck is not what?
She twitched her lips and looked behind me then smiled
Me: why are you smiling unnecessarily?
She crossed her arms and kept smiling and looking behind me. I frowned and looked behind me to see what was making her smile cowardly
I staggered back and almost fell because I was wearing heels
How come I didn’t know Jade was standing so close to me?
Jade: how may we help you?
I stood upright and tried to raise my shoulders to show my elegance
Me: what do you mean?
Jade: didn’t I tell you not to enter this school without my permission?
Me: as what? The security officer?
She furrowed her eye brows and began to walk slowly towards me. I began to walk backwards
Jade: Trina, you have overstayed your welcome. Leave now!
I scoffed and turned to go. I’m not in for Jade now. I came here to confront Tori and not Jade
⬛Beck Oliver’s POV⬛
I arranged my tie and looked around, I spotted Andre and Robbie. I sighed and walked over to them
Me: hey guys
Robbie: OMG! Beck, I’ve missed you so much
He hugged me and I laughed
Me: me too pal.
Rex: hey Becky, what’s up with you?
I looked at him and chuckled. He was wearing a suit and had a black bow tie. The same outfit as Robbie’s
Me: you look good Rex
Rex: that’s what I’m talking about. You’re the man Beck. You are the only man with eyes here
Andre: what do you mean by that?
Rex: well, he’s the only man that complimented on my look tonight
Robbie: what? But I told you that you looked good earlier while we were still at home
Rex: shut up! You’re not a man. You’re still a boy. Beck’s the only man who complimented my good looks
I laughed. This puppet is something else
Andre: oh look. It’s time for music. Bye guys
He wore his guitar 🎸 and hurried backstage
Me: so Robbie, why did you skip school for almost a week?
Robbie : I was grounded. Excuse me please, I’ll get some drinks
He left without Rex
Rex: because he failed an assignment
I asked as if I didn’t know that he was grounded
Rex: he was grounded because he failed an assignment
Me: why would he fail an assignment?
Rex: hahahaha, he failed because he wanted a sexy girl to help him with it. I hired him one and he couldn’t concentrate with her around because of low self esteem. He kept postponing the practicals until the day he was to summit it. Haha
Me: so he couldn’t summit it?
Rex: he couldn’t man. That’s why I I always call him a girl or sometimes a boy. He doesn’t suit being a man
I smirked and looked up at the podium which was high. Victorious just stepped up on the stage and everyone was cheering. I haven’t even been concentrating on whatsoever that has been happening since. But I better concentrate now
Tori on the mic
🎤 happy prom night folks
The students cheered
Cat on the mic
🎤 are we ready to prom the night?…
The students cheered again. I smiled when Jade held her own mic up
🎤 I forgot my scissors
Everyone laughed including me
Rex: I’m damn scared of that girl
Rex: she terrifies me
Me: you’re not alone
🎤 this is a song about those who have a crush on their best friends brother. It’s fun, so listen and be entertained
🎤we wrote this song because I . had a crush on Jade’s brother. He’s so handsome and the direct opposite of Jade
We laughed again and Jade glared at Cat
The guitarist began to play first, before other instrumentals moved in. I looked at the guitarist, I knew it would be no other person but the demigod of music, Andre
🎵I call you up when I know he’s at home 🎵
🎵I jump out of my skin, when he picks up the phone 🎵
🎵why, I can tell when he’s looking at me 🎵
🎵should I give him a smile? Should I get up and leave 🎵
🎵I know it’s strange I don’t know what I’m thinking 🎵
🎵but is it wrong if I see him this weekend? 🎵
🎵I really hope I could meet him alone, I just don’t… don’t want her to know 🎵
🎵yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. My best friend’s brother is the one for me 🎵
🎵a Punk Rock drummer and he’s six foot three 🎵
🎵I want to, and I don’t want to 🎵
🎵but I just can’t get him outta my mind 🎵
🎵yeah yeah yeah yeah, best friend’s brother is the one for me. 🎵
🎵yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, a Punk Rock drummer and he’s Six foot three 🎵
🎵I want to (yeah), but I don’t want to (yeah) 🎵
🎵and I just can’t get him outta my mind 🎵
🎵yeah yeah yeah yeah, best friend’s brother is the one for me. BFB, BFB, best friend’s brother, my best friends brother🎵
Me: these voices are so angelic. Mehn
I stood up and began to cheer with the rest of the students
Rex: I just wish my legs were working, I’ll be dancing right now
Me : why aren’t they working? What happened?
Rex: Jade happened
Right then, Brittany came to me
Brittany : hey Beck
She pecked my cheek
Me: uhh hey
Brittany : the dance teacher wants to see us now
Me: okay. Rex, stay here
Brittany : don’t talk to it. It belongs to a weirdo
Me: Robbie is not a weirdo
Brittany : okay, whatever. Let’s go
She tucked her arm under mine and I walked on with her. I looked up at the podium and saw Victorious coming down. I smiled, definitely ready to flatter Tori because of that voice of hers
⬜Tori Vega’s POV ⬜
I left Jade and Cat and went to look for Beck. Two girls came to me
Girl 1: Tori that was superb, I love your voice so much
Girl2: me too. You sing like an angel
I smiled tenderly
Me: thank you
I tried to walk away in order to avoid a conversation
Girl2: wait, are you looking for Beck? He went that way, towards the dance class with a girl tucking her arm under his
My eyes widened a little
Me: what?… Oh, uh thanks
Girls: you’re welcome
I smiled and turned towards the direction. I heard them giggling and giving each other a high five
I shoved it off and walked faster into the building. I reached the hallway and saw a girl holding unto Beck’s face and kissing him. His hands were on her waist
My eyes turned red immediately
They quickly disengaged
Beck: oh no! Tori
He pushed the girl aside and tried to come to me. I scoffed angrily and tearfully took a turn and ran as fast as my heels could carry me. I didn’t even meet any of my friends, I entered my car and zoomed off
