Chapter Eight: Karaoke

Disclaimer: I don’t own anything in this story except Mickey. I want to give credit to the band Secondhand Serenade for the rocking song Fall for You and Taylor Swift for the song Love Story.


“Cool! Awesome! What in the world?” Axel and I heard at the same time.

“Mickey, what in the world did you do?” Yuna asked. Yuna, Rikku, and Paine were playing board games with the guys while waiting for Gippal.

“Just showing my appreciation to Axel. Do you guys want to see Axel’s? Show them yours.” Once again, Axel took off his shirt and let everyone look at my name on his back. Everyone was speechless.

“I understated yours, Mickey. Axel, what did you do?” Yuna asked.

“Nothing. Just showing my love.”

“What?” Gippal walked in in the middle of the conversation.

“This.” Axel said showing him the tattoo.

Gippal’s eyes were wide open. He was speechless like everyone else. “Gippal, can we do that? Please?” Rikku begged.

“No way, Rikku. But I still love you.” Gippal said putting his arm around her waist.

“Fine, but let's do something fun. Like karaoke.” Rikku suggested. Everyone groaned.

“What’s wrong?” I asked.

“They don’t want to do it 'cause they know Yuna will win.” Axel explained.

“Nu-uh! I’m bad on some days.” Yuna said, defending herself.

“Fine then, I’ll go first. You guys don’t know it but I’ve been practicing.” Axel said. He went and picked out a CD from Roxas's collection and went on stage. “This is for you, Mickey.”

I listened to it play and realized the song was Fall For You by Secondhand Serenade.

The best thing about tonight is that we're not fighting
Could it be that we have been this way before?
I know you don't think that I am trying
I know you're wearing thin down to the core

But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you over again
Don't make me change my mind

Or I won't live to see another day
I swear it's true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You're impossible to find...

He sang the rest of it with out a word out of place. His singing was beautiful and amazed everyone just like his tattoo did. I started to clap and everyone else joined in.

Everyone tried to best him but not even Yuna could, and she had the most amazing voice ever. Soon everyone had had a chance to sing except me. I tried to cower in the corner of the room and vanish but they found me and pushed me on stage. I didn’t even get to pick my song. I listened to it for a couple of seconds and realized it was Love Story by Taylor Swift.

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I’m standing there, on a balcony in summer air

See the lights, see the party the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd and say hello, little did I know...

That you were Romeo
You were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don’t go
And I said...

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story baby, just say yes...

I sang the song without a word out of place. When I finished they were cheering me on like they did to Axel. “Uh. Thanks.” I said and handed the microphone to Roxas.

“Well, we all know who won this time.” Roxas said, “Axel and Mickey! Congratulations, you guys.”

Axel hugged me. “Well, Juliet, your Romeo says yes. What about you?”

“Yes, all the way...” I said.
