Chapter 2: The Audition

*Zoe’s POV*

"Zo! Are you excited?! 10 minutes until you’re up!!!!" Clare said.

"I’m so nervous!" I said.

"You’ll be great! Oh and you never told me who that guy that you were dancing with all night was…" She said.

"Yeah, um, I don’t know either…yup…well, gotta go!" I said as I made my way backstage.

"Up next is Los Angeles native, Zoe Carter!" Carson Daly said.

I made my way to the stage and started to sing my audition song, Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. 

Sunday morning, rain is falling

After the first line, none other than Adam Levine turned around…

Steal some covers, share some skin

Then Blake…
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in
But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road, get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness, she [it] is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

Cee Lo turned around! 

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm

Christina turned around! Yay! All four coaches! 
Change the weather, still together when it ends


But things just get so crazy, living life gets hard to do
Sunday morning, rain is falling and I’m calling out to you
Singing, “Someday it’ll bring me back to you.”
Find a way to bring myself back home to you


I finally finished the song and smiled and I heard Adam say holy shit really loudly. 

"What’s your name and where are you from, pretty lady?" Cee Lo said. Gosh he was so creepy. 

"Zoe and I’m born and raised in Los Angeles, California!" I said as the crowd went wild.

"Me too! A couple things…one you’re gorgeous and I love you…two you totally killed my song…like you sang it better than me…holy shit you’re voice is unreal…please pick me…I love you!" Adam said as he smiled at me.

"Zoe, I’m a fan of yours. You sang that way better than Adam. I’m gonna go buy your record on iTunes. You’re a star, Zoe. That’s all I got." Blake said.

"Zoe, that was pretty good. You have strong vocals. I would have liked to hear some more of your falsetto and some more runs, but you can’t win ‘em all. I’d love to have you on Team Xtina though!" Christina said. 

"So, Zoe, who’s it gonna be?" Adam asked me.

"Hmm…this is really hard…I’m gonna have to go with…Adam!" I said as Adam ran up to hug me.

"Yes!! Oh and last night was great, mystery girl. More fun nights to come! Thanks for telling me your name and keeping me hanging." Adam whispered into my ear as he hugged me and squeezed me really tightly.

"I love you, Zoe!!!!!!" Adam said as I walked off stage.

"Ahhhhh!!!!! ZOEE!!!!!" Clare said as we jumped up.

"Zoe!! Baby!!" My mom said as she hugged me.

"Zo! I’m so happy for ya!" My dad said as we hugged.

"Zo Zo this is great!" My older brother Zac said.

We all hugged and then made our way to the garage to go home.

*Adam’s POV* 

"Adam, she was real pretty, that Zoe. You lucky son of a bitch!" Blake said to me.

"Yep, I know." I said as I recalled the events that had transpired last night. Then I got really excited about the fact that I’d be spending almost everyday with Zoe. Yes. But then it hit me, I had a girlfriend.
