Kyle’s POV

“Contestant 6, 32, 81 and 100” A Judge called out our names ~ numbers
“Made it to the final competition” He concluded.

And we jumped up in rejoice as the Audience screamed and yelled merrily too.
Then we walked out of the Stage.

“Tomorrow is the final competition” A girl named Rose told me as if I didn’t know.

“I know” I said.

“Yeah.. Aren’t you nervous, ‘Cos I am” She said while we walked through the hall-way.

“We made it up to this point and now you’re nervous. What’s the difference? We’ve been performing in front of so many people, it’s still the same thing we are doing tomorrow. So why are you nervous? ”

“I just don’t know maybe because it’s the last day” She said and I scorned.

My mom once told me that everything turns out wrong when Nervousness comes in.

“Hey Kyle” Someone called me behind and I turned back and saw Elena.

“Elena, what are you doing here? I mean how did you enter?” I said and walked up to her and Rose followed me.

“You know.. Dharc.. ”

“Yes I heard Dharc would be among the Judges tomorrow, Oh I can’t wait to see him” Rose interrupted her and Elena smirked.

“Congratulations, you made it up to this stage ” Elena said to me and I smiled and muttered Thank You.

“Not Just him, Me too. I’m among the last four contestant. You are supposed to tell me congratulations too ” She said ~ cutting into our conversation.

“I wasn’t talking to you.. I don’t even know you” Elena said to her.

“Well, You’ll know me when the whole world knows me” She said boastfully.
“and By that time Kyle and I might release a collaboration song”

Elena sighed and ignored her then she faced Kyle and asked him..
“Are you busy now? ”

“Well, I just want to… ” Rose interrupted me.

“We are going for a rehearsal. It ain’t easy to sing three songs a day; one after another. Talkless of playing three different musical instruments. Well, you don’t know what I’m talking about”

“For crying out loud! Who are you? Why do you keep interrupting me?! ” Elena screamed.

“My name is Rose” She answered.

“Who cares!”

“Rose, Go ahead..Please leave us alone. I told you I was never interested in group rehearsals. We aren’t singing the same song” Kyle said to her and she scorned at Elena before walking away.

“I hope I’m not taking much of the precious time you’re meant to make use of in preparation for tomorrow” Elena asked me.

“Nah, not at all. I don’t actually need to prepare” I said.

“Wow.. You are too good” Elena said and I blushed.
“Your name is already all over the internet. You are still a contestant but you’ve got alot of fans” Elena told me.

“I’m not even a internet person so I don’t know. I guess I would have to become one since I’m already at the Peak of becoming popular” I told her.

“You are already Popular” Elena corrected.

“You already picked a stage name; It’s weird but since you likey then it’s perfect but what’s behind the name Silly~K?”

“No, it’s singing~K” I corrected.

“It’s Silly~K”

“Silly~K? ” I repeated.
Jeez, I must have made a mistake. I actually wanted to write down Singing~K.

“Uhm, I don’t wanna take much of your time. Go prepare for tomorrow and I’ll be there watching you”

“Thank you” I muttered.
“I really want to thank you for everything” I said.

“Well, it’s nothing but you’re welcome” She said and smiled at me.

A perfect background like I’ve requested for..
Lights turn off.. Until I began to sing..
I drew the microphone closer then started singing slowly and softly.

🎶I’ve been hearing symphonies
🎶Before all I heard was silence
🎶A rhapsody for you and me
🎶And every melody is timeles
🎶 Life was stringing me along
🎶 Then you came and you cut me loose
🎶 Solo singing on my own
🎶 I can’t find the key without you

🎶And now your song is on repeat
🎶And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
🎶And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
🎶 So if you want the truth

🎶I just wanna be part of your symphony
🎶Will you hold me tight and not let go
🎶Symphony
🎶Like a love song on the radio
🎶Will you hold me tight and not let go?

🎶I’m sorry if it’s all too much
🎶And every day you’re here, I’m healing
🎶And I was runnin’ out of luck
🎶I never thought I’d find this feeling
🎶’Cause I’ve been hearing symphonies
🎶Before all I heard was silence
🎶A rhapsody for you and me
🎶And every melody is timeless

🎶And now your song is on repeat
🎶And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
🎶And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
🎶So if you want the truth

🎶I just wanna be part of your symphony
🎶Will you hold me tight and not let go?
🎶Symphony
🎶Like a love song on the radio
🎶Will you hold me tight and not let go?

🎶And now your song is on repeat
🎶And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
🎶And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
🎶So if you want the truth

🎶I just wanna be part of your symphony

Symphony
🎶Like a love song on the radio
Symphony

Ok, I wasn’t the only one singing, the audience were too.

This Final competition, consists of three phases; We were to pick one random American song and I guess I chose the most Melodious song.
Contestant 6,32 and 81 chose a very slow song. Rose sang “How to break a heart”, it’s lovely but the lyrics hit me really hard.
The second phase was to sing a song by any musician based here.
While The Third Phase was to sing a song you composed yourself. Unfortunately for me, I have just one and it’s gonna remind me alot if I sing it.

👥 “The voice, Oh My God”
👥 “Bring it on Again”
👥 “Kyle; Silly Kyle”

It took up to 10-15minutes before the noise was minimised and the Judges finally have the time to speak.
I saw Dharc for the very first time..Wow.. No, I can’t compare myself with him.

“This is Tenderful” The first female Judge said and expected more compliments from her but she gave the microphone to the next Judge, A man.
And I quickly said Thank you to her before it’s too late.

“If I decide to say up to a million Wow, People would think there’s an ambulance on stage. This is …this is Mind blowing. Bravo, Bravo” He said then gave the microphone to Dharc.

“Thank you” I said to him and I was eager to hear from Dharc.

“Uhm Kyle, first my eyes was closed when you began to sing and I thought it was a Girl singing. You’ve got the Voice K, You’ve got everything. See you in the next Phase Kyle” He said…
My present feeling is beyond Happy. I got this sweet compliments from Dharc.. My role model.

Wait I have a stage name, why didn’t he call me by that? how did he know my real name?
Oops, he was part of the Judges so what am I thinking..

“Thank you very much” I shouted so he could hear me since my die hard fans were screaming and yelling my name.
Then I walked out of the stage.

Later on an Announcement was passed on.. .

“There’s a slight change; First the second and third phase won’t take place today. Till over-morrow. (Next tomorrow)
We, the founder, the CEO decided to give all the contestant a break to visit their loved ones, their guardians, their family. It’s been two weeks, there’s a need for this break ”
“And about the Second and Third Phase. Not all the four contestants would participate in it. I mean.. Like you all know.. The second phase is singing one W-POP song and the third one is singing a song composed by you. But now the current nation’s voice, Dharc would love to sing with one of the contestants. And by so doing, that would be the lucky contestant final phase”
“Remember, The winner, the chosen one gets Everything. And when I say everything, I mean Everything”

The first announcement sinked into my ear faster than the remaining announcements.
We were giving the grace to pay our families a Visit.
I missed them, even my strict Dad, I miss him.
I miss everyone..
It time to go home and see them again.
