Part Four: Dancing Queen
Fade in on a morning Dance Class and the first Person you see is
a young woman in her early 20s of Hispanic Heritage with Olive Skin.
She has dark hair and Eyes and She is a Dancer. Her Name is Lili
Arguelo and she is a Student in David Graysmark's acting classes.
She is Roommates with Reese Tousaint. Anyway today we Focus on Lili
who is auditioning for the lead in a Ballet as her teacher, Sylvia
Williams, Looks on. Lili wants more than anything to be a dancer
but her Father disapproves he thinks it's just a silly fantasy created
a by a rebelious child. Lili Gets every step right and ends up making
it to the second part of the Audition along with five others.
Sylvia is proud of her students and she believes Lili can go far
in the business as long as she dances for the love of dance and
not because people want her too. "Very good. Now double time
and no adlibbing." she said as she watched her students keep
up the paces. She was amazed at how well Lili was doing. she had
come along way since she had first met her in 1994. Lili had been
an obvious natural talent but she was trying to dance her aggressions
away because he father had wanted her to be a lawyer and not a dancer.
Two hours later "Now two of you are left. The one who does
not win the spot of Odette will be the understudy." Lili ends
up being and understudy which is fine with her. She was just glad
to make it to the last stage of the auditions without tripping or
getting nervous. "Lili. you did great." Sylvia told her
"See you tomorrow, Lili."
"Thank you, Sylvia." Lili said and she felt uncomfortable
around the woman she was understudying for because the student clearly
hated her but there was no time to think of that. She had planned
on meeting Liz Clark for dinner. So she had to go back to her apartment
and shower and dress before meeting Liz. She hoped she did not see
Reese because of an unfortunate incident that had happened a week
before and they had been avoiding each other since then. Lili was
also still worried about Suzanne. Because the song that had been
stolen from her was becoming the most popular song on the local
Radio station and Suzanne was trying to pretend that fact did not
bother her but it was pissing her off that someone was getting praise
for something they hadn't work hard to create. Lili arrived at her
apartment and was relieved to find a note from Reese telling Lili
that she was in an audition and probably would not be back until
late that night. Lili goes into the bathroom after getting her tape
player and she puts in a tape with Music from Swan Lake. And starts
getting ready to take a shower. Also she like everyone else at the
Who's Who was still in a bit of shock because it had been three
days since Alex Graysmark had saved his sister's life and they were
still no closer to finding the person who had been driving the car.
At the moment only the Graysmark's and the police were the only
people who knew the identity of the assailant. Lili went over to
the shower and started running the water and adjusting the temperature
and she put the lid down on the toilet so nothing would fall in,
although it had been really funny when she had accidentally knocked
Reese's tooth brush into the toilet. She grinned at that memory.
Then she began to undress and she tossed her clothes into the hamper
with her name on it. It seemed silly to Reese that Lili still had
the wicker hamper shaped like a doll house. Lili loved her hamper
though and she liked pretending it was Clara's house in Nutcracker.
It was certainly more creative than having just a plain boxy hamper
like everyone else had. Anyway she did not care what Reese thought.
She finished undressing and stepped into the shower and started
washing her hair.
Meanwhile in Adam and Liz's apartment:
Adam who is about 24 or 25 and has red hair and receding hairline
is worried about Liz. It had been three days since she had found
out that Marcus Carilli was really her father and she had hardly
mentioned it or the fact that her mother was now in the hospital
being treated for Cancer. She was being way too cheerful for all
that had been happening recently But Adam was not about to bring
up the fact that he was worried about her because she may react
badly and storm out and he hated upsetting her. "Liz. are you
sure about this?" he asked her.
Liz came into the bedroom buttining her blouse "Yes I am sure.
Just because I have a little more emotional baggage does not mean
I am cancelling my girl time with Lili. I will be alright. It's
just a few hours." There were still puddles from the storm
three days before both literal and metaphorical but she refused
to let it bring her down because Liz knew once she slowed down she
would want to scream and that scared her worse than the tidal wave
of emotions that had been dumped on all of them that week. Because
everyone in the club was involved in the Situation with Rose and
Alex in one way or another and then she had the problems in her
own life. She was just glad to have Adam there supporting her and
caring about her. She kissed him "Trust me, Adam." her
curly dark brown hair brushed against his face he loved the smell
of her hair after she had washed it. "Don't worry. Lili and
I will just be going out for pizza or burgers or salad." she
smiled at him. "I Love you." she puts her engagement ring
back on "No matter what happens you and I are in this together."
Adam looked into her eyes "I know. I'm just worried that you
may have a nervous breakdown if you don't talk about things soon."
he smiled at him "I love you too, My Brunette Goddess."
he kissed her passionately "I still have hard time believing
you said yes I knew you loved me but we'd had an argument and you
told me you never wanted to see my ugly mug again and you stormed
out after throwing a pillow from the couch at me." he found
himself looking down her blouse "You make me want you so bad
sometimes. I think you want to tease me." he kisses her again
and slides his tongue into her mouth and she sucks on it and afterwards
"I am taking you to a hotel room tomorrow night and showing
you the best time I can." he Smiled down at her "Possibly
even a Spa. I've been saving up money to do something special for
your birthday but you need to be pampered now and treated like the
goddess you are." he kissed her again.
Liz "That sounds wonderful. I've been wanting a full head
to toe body rejuvenation session." she kissed him "I need
to get going I'm supposed to meet Lili in thirty minutes. I Love
you too, Adam Lewis." she smiled at him and went to get her
purse and jacket. She stuck her keys in her purse and left.
Back in Lili's Apartment:
Lili was now dressed and she was out on her balcony taking in some
fresh air to relax when she saw Brent walking. She was attracted
to him but was not sure if he would return the feelings because
she knew he had a thing for Suzanne. She loved the evening breeze
off the ocean blowing through her hair. The moon was full and shiny.
She had a feeling something good would happen to her soon but she
was not sure what. She went back into her apartment leaving the
windows oppen so the breeze would fill the apartment and put her
shoes on and brushed her hair and put a barrette that Rose had given
her the Christmas before in her hair. It was special because Rose
had made it. It was a polymer clay and had and had Lilies and a
little ballerina painted on it. People kept asking her where she
bought it. No one would believe him when she said a friend made
it for her. She thought of Rose as a little sister and David was
the father who accepted Lili for who she was a person following
her heart. In Fact everyone at the Who's Who was like a Family to
her. Before leaving she closed her jewelry box and put all her makeup
back where she had it. That was another thing that bothered her
about Reese, she would not ask before borrowing something of Lili's.
After replacing her things in all their spots Lili locked the apartment
door and went to have dinner with Liz "I'm so confused. I like
Brent yet unsure what to do about making it known." she said
to Liz. As she sipped her Vanilla shake. "I know Brent likes
Suzanne. There is something about him that i find so appealing."
Liz sighed and looked at Liz "He seems to respect people who
aren't afraid to tell people what they think. Did you hear Brent
and Ryan beat each other up over Suzanne and now they're closer?
I tell you something men are so strange sometimes." she sighed
"Damn their shakes are better than normal." she ate a
French fry "How did your audition go?" she was really
glad to have Lili to talk to.
Lili sighed "I'm the understudy for Odette. Sarah, the one
who got the lead, is a total Ice Queen she seems to resent me for
no obvious reason. Her stares gave me some chills and she seems
to hate me for some reason." she smiled "But I did not
my best and that's all that matters." she sipped her shake
and then took a bite of her burger "You're right about the
shakes." after eating they decided to go the beach and watch
the waves and Lili had mentally decided if Brent happened to stroll
by on the beach while they were there she would tell him how she
felt. As they walked down the beach she started dancing.
Liz "Slow down. You just ate and it may make you cramp up
or throw up if you do anything to active after eating." she
had a burger and Shake to take back to the apartment for Adam. Just
then Brent walked up to them. "I should get these to Adam before
the shake melts. Heads towards the Who's Who leaving Brent and Lili
alone on the beach under the silvery moon with the breeze blowing.
Brent "Hey Lili. How are you doing? I have not seen you in
a few days." he smiled at her it was less creepy since he had
stopped doing drugs. "How did the audition go?" he held
her hand and she felt as though she was about to faint as though
the world had stopped at that moment. "Are you alright? You
seem a but unsteady at the moment." his blue eyes shined as
he spoke and she felt as though she could be lost in them forever
and before she could speak her true feelings she was acting on pure
adrenaline and she kissed him passionately on the lips and he grinned
at her "So you really are attracted to me. I've been told by
Ryan that he believes you are. But I was not sure whether to believe
him." he catches Lili when she faints He carefully lays her
on the beach and gently pats her face to wake her.
She woke up a few minutes later "Did I really kiss you? I
never thought I'd have nerve to do it." she smiled at him "Would
you ever consider going out on a date with me. I'm not Suzanne but
I think you're good looking." she was blushing now.
