(Jason’s Point of View)
Jason entered the main doors of the hotel and headed towards the lobby. He let out a sigh. Being in a hotel brought back to him a lot of memories. He remembered how he would take Jenny to the hotels to trash it or slide down the long stairway banisters. But those carefree days are over. His only love had died and he no longer has the heart to love anyone else.
Eversince the news of Jenny’s death, Jason began to develop a passion for anything he thinks is related to her. Things like her hairbrush, the same type of lip gloss she uses, etc. Jason smiled remembering that she had told him that he was her first kiss. Jenny never went out with any guys so it made him really happy but he also found it very strange. He didn’t want to give her any ideas about dating other guys so he never asked.
“Hey Jason! Over here!” shouted Matt.
Jason looked over at his five friends. He walked over to them and was surprised at what he saw. “What the hell is this?” he asked angrily. Every single one of them had a girl in each arm. “What do you guys think you’re doing?” he asked as he strode over to them.
“Come on Jason,” said Sam. “Lighten up.”
“Yeah,” said Lee. “We worked hard all day and now let’s have a little fun.”
Jason rolled his eyes and then he saw two girls wrap their arms around him. He smiled. “Yeah, I guess.” “Alright!” they all shouted. They like it when Jason is in a good mood.
From where I was standing, I felt as though someone had stabbed me with a knife. Jason looked so happy with those 2 girls sitting on both sides of his lap. I stared at my reflection in the hotel mirror. Big, glassy eyes, pale skin, and waist-length black hair. I looked kind of like a ghost. Not much to look at, I thought sighing sadly. Then I felt a tap on my shoulder and I slowly turned around.
“What are you looking at?” asked Kim.
Whew. I let out a sigh of relief. “They’re here,” I whispered to her.
“Who?” she asked, looking over my shoulder.
“Oh. So you want to go serve them?” I shook my head ‘no’ quickly. Kim laughed. “Okay. Don’t get so worked up, Jenny. I’ll do it.” She took a waitress pad and headed over to their table. I remained in the corner watching them.
“Hi, my name is Kim and I’ll be your waitress today. May I take your order?”
All the Royalz members looked up to the pretty, young girl who just approached them. Instantly Matt made the 2 girls on his lap move. He looked up at Kim, giving her his best smile. “I don’t know what I want for dinner, but you want to be my dessert?” The other 5 members laughed while Kim rolled her eyes. “That’s so cute. Must have took you all day to think up that one huh?”
“Ooh,” shouted Sam. “This one has a mouth.”
Matt just smiled. “Feisty. I like it.”
Then he pinched Kim’s side playfully. She moved away, glaring. “Hey don’t touch me!”
“Come on babe. Go out with me. I’ll show you a good time.”
“Hell no!” Kim shouted back in his face.
Then Jason stood up. “Don’t talk to my friend like that,” he said in a low threatening voice. “Or else I’ll have you fired.” Jason’s glare made Kim move back a little bit but she answered back anyways. “You can’t fire me! I quit!”
She handed Lee her apron and pad and stomped over to me in the dark corner. “Stupid, lousy jerks,” she whispered to me. “I know,” I whispered back, patting her shoulder. Suddenly, I caught Jason staring at me. I didn’t know what to say or do so I just left.
jason stared at the girl who was talking to Kim. ‘She looks like Jenny,’ he thought. ‘But can’t be.’
“Jason,” said Matt. “What are you looking at?”
“Her,” said Jason, pointing in Kim’s and Jenny’s direction.
“You like my waitress too?” asked Matt, pouting.
“No,” said Jason, shaking his head. “Her friend. Doesn’t she look like Jenny?”
Matt glanced at the person Jason was pointing to and watched her walk away. “No…” said Matt slowly. “That girl’s hair is much longer and Jenny has a nicer body. That chick looks like a stick.”
Jason raised an eyebrow at Matt. “How do you know Jenny have a nice body?” Matt’s eyes widened. “I dunno… just guessing. Sam’s calling me. I’ll go see what he wants,” Matt said quickly and ran over to Sam right away. Jason began to chase the girl who just left.
Jason ran after her as fast as he could. He saw the girl turn a corner and he continued chasing her. He saw a figure up ahead and he grabbed her by the shoulder. When the girl turned around, she had a surprised expression on her face.
Jason looked at the strange girl. She looked nothing like Jenny. “Wrong person.” The girl walked way. Jason sighed. ‘Maybe it’s cause I miss Jenny so much that I’m beginning to see her.’ He began to walk back to the lobby, disappointedly.
From my hotel room, I was watching Jason with the little hole in the door. I saw him pat a girl and then walk away with him head bowed down. I went over and sat down on my bed. I let out a sigh. Jason doesn’t miss me. He has too many girls with him already. He probably forgot who I am by now.
Tears fell down my face and I didn’t even realize it. I quickly wiped them away. I wanted to tell myself that I hate Jason but I couldn’t because then I’d just be lying. There was only one thing left for me to do.
I stood in front of my bathroom mirror. I can’t be with Jason as Jenny, but I wanted to be by his side to watch over him. I thought about it for a while and remembered they were recruiting new members for Royalz. I looked at myself. Hmm…if my hair is short and put into a cap, I wear sunglasses more, darken my skin with make-up, and lower my voice…I can pass for a guy.
So I did it. Within an hour, I had transformed myself into a guy. I checked myself over. As a guy, I didn’t look too bad. I smoothed out my new short hair and tucked it into a cap. Guys wear earrings too so I didn’t have to worry about my earring holes. I wore a couple of T-shirts under my flannel and 2 pairs of boxers under my baggy jeans so I would fill out more and wouldn’t look so scrawny. I checked my make-up, making sure I was well-covered. I put my sunglasses on. Perfect, I thought. Now all I have to do is have to pass the test to join the gang.
