I just got out of the shower. I rushed back into my room and try to figure out what to wear. In my mind is that I’ll be late for school, since it’s already 1pm, and my class starts at 2:30pm. When I go downstairs to the living room, it wasn’t our house anymore but it still resembles a few pieces of furniture in our living room. I looked around feeling disoriented. Then what I saw next surprised me — sitting there was Gracenote. The band. There.
They didn’t notice me, and they are happily chattering. I even heard Eunice say “We have to wait for him,” and then I thought “Oh, Jazz is missing.” I didn’t try to interrupt them since I still need to get to school so the next thing I knew was I’m already in the corridors of the Arts and Sciences building. After a few minutes of waiting inside the classroom, a student assistant walks in and announced that we have no classes that day. I rushed outside and tried to find my orgmate Nix, since we’re classmates in the course. I saw her walking in the other corridor, but before I could run and catch up with her, I suddenly saw Eunice, THE Eunice, vocalist of Gracenote. Since I haven’t seen the band in person, I asked if I could take a picture with her since Nix has been mocking me of not yet seeing them. Sadly, when I asked her, Eunice just stared at me, and she was crying. I just nodded thinking it’s a bad time for taking pictures since she’s crying, but then I didn’t ask her why. I ran towards the direction of Nix, even without my eyeglasses I know her blue checkered polo shirt she’s wearing that time.
When I finally got near her, I was surprised to see that she’s also crying, like Eunice, but I didn’t ask her why. “Did you know that Gracenote is here in our school?” I said, then she answered “Yeah, they’ll be performing tonight in the auditorium.” Another orgmate showed up, it was Timi. He grabbed Nix’s arm and asks us where to, but Nix just told him we still have class so he smiled and left.
I was suddenly alone by the building, near a stairway. A man in a police uniform stopped me and asks to show him my hand. When I raised my right hand, I saw that I was wearing a silver diamond ring, and it looks exactly like the one in the movie “The Phantom of the Opera”, the one which the phantom gave to Christine Daae. Then the police asked me to hand the ring over to him. He looked really creepy, and when I said I don’t want to, he grabbed my right arm and started taking off the ring from my hand. I tried not to laugh since I saw that his nails where painted aquamarine. The police finally got the ring and he ran off. I can’t do anything, I can’t move my legs to run and get the ring back, so instead I whispered, “Brods? Help..” Nothing happened, the people around the area were instantly my orgmates. “Brods, help me get it back! He’s getting away!” Still, no one helped me. Finally on top of my lungs I shouted at them, “BROOODS!!”
The scene shifted to an auditorium where Gracenote is supposedly having a show. It was night time already, and the stage is still empty. I went backstage, not knowing how I’m allowed there, and I saw Eunice again. I asked her if the show has ended already, but she shook her head and I instantly knew why, I thought “Jazz is still missing, so they cancelled the show.” I took my phone from my pocket and asked Eunice if I could take a picture since they’re about to leave. She finally agreed! But then as Dave, my orgmate tries to take a shot of us, my other orgmates came rushing to join us. I kept saying “Hey you guys, you’ll have your turn!” No one listened and they kept on posing for the camera. I got pissed at my orgmates and was about to cry, so I walked out.
