Dylan walked up to Jenny's doorway to pick her up for his band practice. But even though Jenny did own a car, Dylan wanted to pick her up anyways.
As he knocked on the door Jenny's mother, Caroline answered it.
"Can I help you?" Caroline asked as she stared down the rebellious teenage looking boy who stood in her doorstep.
"No you can't! Later", Jenny said quickly cutting into the conversation and walking outside her door. Jenny didn't like her mother as much as she used to, not since her parents divorce.
"Jenny! How many times do I have to tell you not to talk to me like that?!" yelled Caroline, she was so tired of her daughters sudden behavior lately. First dyeing hair many times, getting a tattoo without permission, and now hanging around boys such as Dylan.
Jenny ignored her and continued walking with Dylan to the car, Caroline slammed the door very loud to where the house next door could probably hear it.
"She doesn't like me already I'd take it?" Dylan asked curiously.
"If you don't fit into her perfect little modeling career, then no. My mom isn't the greatest mom in the world you know. I mean she dumped my dad just because his career ended, she can be just a-"
Dylan interrupted Jenny's rambling as he pressed his lips against hers. Jenny was staggered by the sudden move he just made on her and she pushed him, even though she had to admit he was good.
"What was that?" Jenny asked still looking pretty flabbergasted.
"Well to first shut you up and... you mom was looking", said Dylan smiling and looking back at Caroline through the front window.
"Turns out, I don't like her either", said Dylan making Jenny laugh.
"How about we get out of here before my mom runs her 4-inch heel up your butt?" Jenny said walking toward Dylan's car door.
At band practice, they went over the lyrics once more and finally perfected their first song. Hopefully tonight when they perform, the crowd will be throwing their hands in the air and not their drinks at them.
Jenny made Kyle sing the song over and over again, until it sounded the way she wanted it to sound. Perfect.
"This may never start, tearing out my heart.
I'd be your memory.
Lost your sense of fear, feelings disappear.
Can I be your memory?" Kyle sang.
"Stop, stop! Your singing it wrong still", Jenny shouted at Kyle.
"What the hell am I doing wrong now Jenny?! You told me to sing high pitched then sing low pitched, what now? Sing no pitch?" said Kyle waving the mic around in his hand.
"That's not it, your voice is really good. I just don't feel any emotion from it though", said Jenny.
"Okay, so you want me to...?" said Kyle waiting for Jenny to direct him, "She might as well be the darn manager", he thought.
"Put some damn emotion into the song!" Dylan said shouting at Kyle.
"Okay, okay, geez you guys are so mean", Kyle said. He tried to think of anything that was emotional for him and he found it.
When he sang the song once again, this time Jenny was pleased. There was finally emotion.
After the band had finished playing they decided to unwind and chat.
"So Dylan, are you Jenny like together now?" Anthony asked.
"Why does everyone keep saying that?", said Jenny getting weak in the knees.
"What's it to you?" Dylan asked back.
"Oh I see, so you won't mind if she goes to homecoming with me then?" Anthony said toying with Dylan.
"You know what? I actually would mind since we are already going together", said Dylan so unexpectedly. He never asked Jenny to homecoming, yet.
Jenny just pretended like she didn't hear a word they just said and planted herself on the hardwood floor.
"Dylan?" said Flint.
"What Flint?" Dylan said annoyed. If Flint were to say he's hungry again, he would have the nerve to knock him out stone cold.
"What's our band name?" Flint asked.
Everyone looked as if something had died inside the room. The band didn't decide a name yet and maybe this was the right time to do so.
"I'd call ourselves The Soul Surfers", Kyle said breaking the awkward silence.
"Kyle...I suck at surfing", said Dylan grunting.
"What about Karma?" Anthony said looking at the group as they were in deep thought.
"Yeah, that doesn't sound bad", Kyle said.
As Dylan finally finished his train of thought he said,"Global Karma".
"Now that's awesome guys!" Flint said happily.
"Yeah, Global Karma", Jennifer said smiling at everyone.
"Alright, then it's settled we're Global Karma", Dylan said.
They finished their practice and afterward went home to rest, since they had a big night ahead of them.
