Afterlife

Summary:
There's a new girl in the town of Forks, she's smart, musical and down to earth. Sound like anyone we know? So what happens when she meets the Cullens? ES FINITO! Also some people haven't realized this, I changed the title of this from, 'A New Point of veiw' to it's current title 'Afterlife'. Sorry for the confusion! Also in this and all of my other stories the pictures do not belong to me I don't claim them in any way what so ever and I put who does own them in the chapter. Don't sue me please.colorful-12.gif image by Erka_03Someone left me a review with a banner! I was so happy but then my mouse got knocked and the review got deleted. So if you are that amazing person who made me a banner, can you please try and put it in another review? I would be eternally greatfull.


Notes:
I own none of the characters in the fabulous Twilight Saga. The rest however are figments of my imagination. For anyone who knows me I picked the name for the main character because I couldn't think of a better one, and once I put it in there it just worked.

Chapter 7

"I can’t take this anymore!" I screamed as I walked into the sleeping courters. I walked up to Bridge who was in a ball on her bed. "We're getting out of here." I said pacing the five foot space between the wall and the end of her bed.

"What do you mean getting out of here?" she asked excited but worried at the same time. Her thoughts were circling around not wanting to be a fugitive.

"As in going to play a concert," I said getting excited. I hadn’t played in two weeks.

"Awesome! Let’s go tell the boys," she said jumping out of bed. We walked down the boy’s corridor and found them sitting on Aaron’s bed. We all sat together and discussed the details. I called city hall as soon as we figured out where to play.

"Hello..."I said talking to a guy on the other end, "Yes this is Kate Mason… yeah we just moved here and we kind of have a band… yes a band…well we were wondering if we could play a concert at the park…well sir Forks needs some excitement…the music we play completely depends on the crowd…yep were the orphan kids from Chicago," I said shaking my head did everyone know everyone’s business here? "No we’ll take care of getting the word out… yes… teenagers…as in 15 to 25 years of age…thank you. We’re in." I said hanging up the phone. The rest of the guys cheered.

Five minutes later we were walking down the main street of Forks to get posters made, then we separated into groups to hand them up. We had bought two staplers. Bridget and I were turning down a corner, when I bumped into a short girl with spiky black hair.

"Sorry," I said in my weird accent. It sounded have Chicagoan half Brittan. "It’s alright," she said. Just by her voice I could tell she was very, oh what’s the word, hyper I think would go best here?

"Hey," she said, "aren’t you Kate Mason?" she asked seeming excited. Reading her mind it turned out her and her brother were looking for us on the internet.

"Yep, that’s me," I said with a sigh. Everyone really did know everyone’s business here.

"Are you guys playing any time soon? My brother’s a total music nut, and he’d love to see you play." She asked.

"Yeah actually were playing this Saturday." Bridget said handing here a poster.

"Cool. Edward’s going to love this," She squealed looking down at the poster.

"See you," I said and walked off with Bridget skipping besides me. We continued hanging up posters, and passing them out to the teens on the street until it got dark.

We met up with the boys back at the orphanage; we talked into the night about how we were going to get things set up. I had a stash of money left over from our previous gigs in Chicago. So we used that to get one of those portable stage companies from Seattle to set one up in the park. Then, I got a rental van reserved to haul our instruments there.

Everything was set up. For the next few days we practiced up in the attic every afternoon. The Dragon Lady never went up here so we were safe. It was also the place we hid Aaron’s drums.

We had a good laugh listening to Dragon Lady yelling for us downstairs. Actually we ended up sleeping in the attic too. If we went down there she would have locked us in our room for a month, and we would have had to cancel the concert.

So every morning Maxi and I would climb down the house and run and get food. Then when we came back we would listen at the door for the Dragon Lady. When she was at the extreme other end of the building we’d sneak in, up the stairs and into the attic.

The night of the concert was pretty easy. Dragon Lady dates every Saturday from like nine in the morning to 3 a.m. So we just got dressed up and walked strait out the front door. We arrived at the park to an already huge crowd. We got set up on stage and got ready to do our favorite thing in the world.
