Turn Around

The two movies 'Save The Last Dance' and 'Keith' have inspired me to write this story. I'm not sure what to name it so I'm open to ideas =]

Chapter 1

Preparing For What?

by: Jacers__
"Hey Mom, where are you?" I ask when I hear my mom's voice on the other end of the phone.

"Sorry, Hun. I'm just leaving the house now." Her soft voice replies and I can almost see the smile on her face as she rushes out the door.

"Okay. See you soon. I love you." I laugh at the image formed in my head.

"I love you too baby." We exchange good-byes before I hang up.

Still smiling, I grab my ballet bag and head into the audition room where other dancers are waiting to be called.

"Rachel Jordan." A booming voice calls my name and I look around nervously for my mom.

I can't see her anywhere. That doesn't mean anything.

"Rachel Jordan?" The voice calls again and I rush to the stage. Maybe she'll just show up when I'm performing.

"Are you ready?" The man asks me. He's wearing a dance jacket and glasses that are perched high up on his long nose. Shaggy and greasy brown hair frames his light eyes.

"Yes sir." I reply and I begin my dance routine. My mind keeps flashing to my mom and I mess up on a couple of steps.

I blush and try to continue on.

By the time I am done, I can tell that my mom isn't here yet.

I'm way past worried now. I rush out of the auditorium and bump into my friend Bailey. She grabs my shoulders and forces me to look at her.

"Rachel? What's the matter?" She asks me, confused.

"Mom..she isn't here yet. This isn't like her." I start to shake from the cold air that is flowing in from the open door.

That's when I see him. He's tall and has a police suit on. I take one more look at him before my knees become weak.

"Is Rachel Jordan here?" The man's deep voice asks to anyone listening.

Bailey raises her voice while holding on to me. "Over here."

The man walks toward us with a sorrowful look on his face.

"No..No..." I start. "Please no."

The man looks at Bailey and says the words I didn't want to hear.

"Rachel's mom is being taken to a hospital right now...It doesn't look good."

Bailey nods her head and I can tell she's trying to be strong for me.

It's hopeless though.

I burst out crying and collapse into Bailey's arms.


Bailey was the last thing I saw before I closed my eyes and unconsciousness falls upon me.
