Chapter 3 of Growing Pains-A Katy Perry fanfic

Places to Be, People to See

We’re hungry out of our wits by now since all we’ve had to eat since we left Emily’s house last night were a couple twizzlers that Will had forgotten in his car (I don’t want to know how long ago), so we make a joined decision to stop at the next food-stop we see along the country road. This does not take too long and before we know it we find a cute little cafe by the side of the road. It’s probably five times overpriced, but according to Emily it’s all on her, so we don’t really care as we pull over.

The cafe is pretty empty so we buy our food from the old lady and decide to stay and eat on the porch on the other side of the cottage, facing away from the road. Everything is so still, there’s only a slight breeze outside amidst the blazing hot sun perched up high on the sky. The landscape has still not changed horribly since a couple hours ago; all I can see as long as my sight goes are green round hills and a few roads here and there snaking in between them.

We sit quietly for a while, Sam refreshing her Instagram feed and about to start complaining, I can tell by the way her newsfeed isn’t loading properly. Three, two, one-

Q

Aw I love your enthusiasm!!! I came here almost two months ago and am leaving in June or around Christmas, depending on how it goes… I do have an exchange family, they’re actually my parents’ old friends so they know them, which is nice :) I’ve liked it this far! I feel like it’s a lot more work at school than home, so that’s a little exhausting, but everyone has been really nice to me! ;)

Nope, exchange year; very well timed (note sarcasm cause a year earlier/later I would have been where she would have been but oh well)

She is! She promised she’s come a couple years back and now she finally is! I’m actually at 0 right now it sucks so bad! I’m gonna be here in the US when she’s in Europe and Scandinavia but you know I might come home and then I’d go to the ones in France, Finland, Sweden(Amsterdam??)…. I doubt it though and it feels so bad not being able to go to your hometown show. I’m really sad but I’ve had a good run! 2 shows in London and 2 in LA! That’s more than I could have hoped for and more than my bank account could support too…

Chapter 2 of Growing Pains-A Katy Perry fanfic

Chapter 2

I know I’ve been sleeping for some time, as I feel drowsy as I regain consciousness, returning from the land of dreams, and then I feel the soreness in my butt as I’ve been sitting for so long, and the pain in my neck originating from the unnatural sleeping position I’ve adopted. I yawn, popping out my headphones from my ears making the music fade away and be replaced by the sounds around me. I hear a rather brilliant acoustic song playing from the stereos in the car amongst the sound of the car swooshing forwards on the freeway.

I shift and sit up straighter, looking to my left where Will has been replaced by Sam, who’s looking really stiff by the wheel (she once banged into another car-no one got hurt, but she’s really careful when driving now) and says she hates it.

“Mornin’ sunshine.” She says when she notices me staring.

“Where are we?” I wonder, looking out of the window, but all I see are green, never-ending hills and a blue sky.

“Dunno.” She shrugs. “We should be in Glendale by noon at latest, though. Hit a really bad traffic jam.”

I look at the clock, it’s ten am. I unlock my phone, but there are no new messages, not even from my parents wondering where I am, so I close it and put it down on my thighs. They probably figured I slept over at someone’s house, but still I feel a little sad they didn’t even ask.

“Want me to drive?” I offer, seeing Sam relax.

“Yes, please.” She sighs happily. “I hate this.”

I laugh softly as she pulls over and we switch places after stretching our stiff bodies a little. When I start the car again, I hear movement from the back-seat, so I check on my friends through the rear-view mirror. Emily is stirring, waking up.

“Hi.” She says sleepily, rubbing her eyes. “Where are we?”

I repeat what Sam told me earlier and Emily nods and looks out of her window. I return my focus onto the road and trying to swirl past a really slow car. Sam makes a content sound and turns the volume up on whatever she’s listening to. It’s still some kind of acoustic song, probably sung by the same woman who was singing earlier.

I listen to her sing about time passing like a butterfly flying away from you while a piano and a violin accompany her, and I feel like I’ve heard that voice before, but I can’t really place it.

“Who’s that?” I ask Sam, who huffs.

“Come on.”

“What?” I wonder, baffled.

“Don’t tell me you don’t know who Katy Perry is?” Sam sounds annoyed, making me laugh. “It’s not funny it’s something to be ashamed of!”

“Right.” I chuckle. “I think I’ve heard this song before.”

“Probably. She won like a trillion Grammy’s for this album.”

“It’s a good song.” I shrug and Katy Perry sings this kind of interesting bridge where she uses a younger voice to sing parts of it.

“That’s her when she was a kid.” Sam comments.

“The other voice?”

“Yeah. She used old recordings.” Sam says. “Its kind of cool, dontcha think?”

“I think it’s a little tacky.” Emily comments from the backseat.

“But it fits the song! She’s talking about how time passes by and used herself as a kid, that’s really cool!” Sam defends Katy as if it’s her friend and it’s her job to defend her no matter what.
