Let's get into the chapter!!
Joanna and Adonis scrambled out of bed, dressed quickly and followed Miranda down the steps into the kitchen.

“What do you mean you have to let me go?” Joanna asked frantically. Her debut party was a little over a week away, how could she be let go?

Miranda took a sip of her coffee, “I have to. You and Adonis are label mates. I don’t allow my artists dating. It’s bad for business.”
Joanna couldn’t breathe. Was she really about to lose her dream so quickly? She looked to Adonis for help.

“Well, technically we aren’t even label mates, Miranda. She doesn’t have a contract yet! Come on, Ran. Don’t do this.” He pleaded.
Miranda finished her coffee in silence. She looked at the two begging artists in front of her. She turned her attention to Joanna; she was a nice enough girl; she couldn’t help but fall for Adonis. Heck, if she was being honest with herself, she herself felt something for him when she first started managing him. She decided to take it easy on the girl. She knew Adonis; it wouldn’t take long for him to get what he wanted from her, then she would be another spurred ex to add to the list. She just hoped he would make it quick; she wanted Joanna over and done with the mopey heart achy part of the breakup by the time she needed to join the label.

“Okay fine. Don’t say I never did you any favors. You two can have the day off I guess, I’ll call Harley to take your studio time today.” She said over her shoulder. She walked out of the kitchen and out of the house.
Joanna caressed Adonis’ face, “Oh my gosh, thank you. I couldn’t even think straight. You just saved me.” She said breathlessly. She kissed him.

When they broke apart he smiled at her, “I couldn’t let her do that to you. I know Miranda, she’s a softy at heart.”

“But what about when it’s time for me to sign to the label? What will we do then?” she asked nervously. She really cared about Adonis, she didn’t want to have to choose between him and her dream.
“Well, she’s giving you the chance to do an EP first, that’ll take a little under a year. By the time we get the numbers in from your sales and you get signed, we’ll have been together too long for her to lay down that stupid rule. We’ll be fine.” He pulled her back in tight and hugged her.

Again, Joanna wanted to believe and trust him, but she wasn’t sure. This time it wasn’t up to him, it was up to Miranda.
It was the night before her debut party with the label, and Tessa had come over so they could get an early start on the day. The night at Adonis’ mansion was a week ago, and Tessa hadn’t gotten a bit of detail; tonight was girls’ night, and Tessa was ready to hear it all. Joanna was excited as well; she hadn’t been to work all week and missed seeing her best friend. The girls settled in front of the TV and prepared themselves for gossip.

“Sooo, spill! How has a week as Mrs. Alexander been?!” Tessa said laughing.
Joanna laughed with her, “I don’t know about Mrs. Alexander, but it’s been…good. I spent most of my nights over there, he’s so sweet! He’s a really good cook, I would have never guessed.”

“Oh I don’t care about that! I wanna know the juicy details! How’s he in bed?!” Tessa asked her playfully.
“Tess!!” Joanna blushed, she had to admit, it was one of the best parts of being with him. Tessa gave her an expectant stare, and she caved a little, “He has the most AMAZING body!” they girls burst into giggles.

They spent the rest of the night talking about Adonis and Jeffery, the new guy Tessa had met at the coffee shop and had been out with twice.
The next morning, Joanna’s phone rang loudly in her ears. It couldn’t be time to get up already, could it? She and Tessa had gone to sleep a few hours ago; she just needed an extra hour or two. She got out of bed and answered her cell phone.

“Mhfrmp.” She mumbled.
“Um, okay, well it’s Miranda. You need to get to the salon within the hour. And if your friend wants to get something, she needs to be with you. Hair and makeup will be first, and then you two will have a fitting. There are clothes from hundreds of designers, pick something nice, I’d hate to have to come to the salon and pick your outfit out for you. Be ready by 8; the limo will be at the salon to pick you two up, parties at 9, we’ll introduce you at 10. Got it?” Joanna managed out a meager response and hung the phone up. She looked at her clock; it was only 10 am! There’s no possible way hair, makeup, and clothing options will take close to 9 hours! She groaned and woke Tessa up. They had to make their own way to the salon. Tessa definitely wasn’t a fan of this plan. “Come onnnn. I’m tired! We can’t just get dressed here?” Tessa complained. Once she heard she too would be getting the new star treatment and not just observing, she perked up, but she was still not happy about being up so early. They arrived quickly at the high end salon within half an hour, now alert and excited to start the day. The stylist was a cute girl, about their age, and seemed happy to be helping the two friends. “Right this way, Ms. McFadden; we have you in hair and makeup first. Ms. Yaris, our stylist Jacinta will be assisting you, she’s right over there.” She motioned to the other stylist, an equally cute girl in her late 20s. Her stylist introduced herself as Marcella, and was quick to ask Joanna how exactly she wanted to look for her big night, “Let’s start with your hair, did you want to color it? Cut it? Highlight it? Ms. Miranda said your wish is my command. I’m yours to serve.” She said with a smile. Joanna shrugged, she had never really cared about how her hair looked; the only person to ever really do anything besides run a comb through it was Tessa, and she wasn’t there to give her opinion at the moment. “Do whatever you think is best, nothing dramatic. I trust you.”

Marcella smiled and nodded. Joanna closed her eyes and tried to get some rest while her stylist went to work creating magic with her hair.
What seemed like minutes later, Marcella was finished and was gently shaking Joanna awake, “I’m all finished with your hair, I hope you like it Ms. McFadden!”

Joanna was slow to open up her eyes, she was nervous. Would she like what she saw? She opened her left eye, then her right. She gasped at what she saw. “I…love it! Marcella oh my goodness!”

She looked at the stylist who had the world’s biggest smile, “You really like it ma’am?”
Joanna nodded. Her hair and makeup was amazing. She had lightened her dark red hair with blonde and light brown highlights, layered and put it in a simple style away from her face. “I absolutely love it! If I ever go on tour, you’re coming with me! I want you to be my personal hair stylist and makeup artist!”

Marcella couldn’t stop smiling, “It would be my honor!” she looked at her watch, “It’s almost 3, let’s get you and Ms. Yaris to wardrobe!”
They girls met in the dressing room and gushed over each other’s new look. Tessa couldn’t believe how amazing Joanna looked, and Joanna was amazed at the red highlights Tessa decided to put in her hair. The girls both looked beautiful and were ready to try on all kinds of expensive clothes. One by one they were handed designer originals neither one of the girls would have ever imagined they would get to wear. They sipped champagne and laughed with their stylists. The girls were having a ball.

Finally, the time had come for the girls to make their final decisions. Tessa had picked her outfit about an hour ago; a beautiful teal colored dress. It showed her figure perfectly and made her look amazing.
Joanna still wasn’t sure what she wanted to wear. This outfit would be the first thing the world saw her in; she wanted to make a good impression. She also wanted Adonis to be speechless when he saw her. Her eyes landed on a gown on the rack, she hesitated and grabbed it, “Okay, I think I found something good!” she shouted.

“You mean besides all the other insanely gorgeous designer threads you’ve tried on today?” Tessa teased. Her best friend and the stylists giggled in amusement.
“Oh hush! I’m coming out!” she announced. She stepped out on the platform and the womens’ faces dropped in astonishment.

“What?!” Joanna asked nervously.

“That. Is. IT!” Tessa squealed. Her friend looked absolutely astounding.
“Really?” Joanna asked smiling. She looked at herself in the mirror. She did look astounded. She smiled.

“We definitely have a winner in this one.” Marcella said to her new client.

Joanna had picked a champagne colored backless evening gown. It looked stunning on her.
Before any of them knew it, the limo was pulling up outside and the girls were on their way to Joanna’s big debut into the music world. She could barely contain herself, what if nobody liked her single? Tessa tried to reassure her, but she just didn’t know. Alright! That's it for this chapter!!

I'll see you all in chapter 7!
