Link 17: (Vale) Grave Rave



Standing at the front door, I watched Mommy & Daddy talking to Benely, outside of the family limo. Daddy complained about a scratch on the passenger side door, while Mommy tried to calm him down. Benely, shook his head and dad cursed about having a twenty-three old butler. I watched the exchange impatiently waiting for them to leave. Finally, my parents turned and waved. With a faked frown, I waved back. They were going away for two weeks. Two wonderful weeks I could have Jakey staying the night.

"Oh. Em. Gee!" I whispered as Benely finally got in the car, and they drove away.

With a giggle, I skipped to the kitchen island and picked up my Holo-Phone. I swiped away the hologram screensaver of a hopping bunny and scrolled through my notifications. More than a dozen awaited my response, but not a single one from Jakey.

"Dammit, why are you texting me back?" I asked.

"I am unable to text you on your own phone," my phone's voice spoke.

"Shut up! And put on the radio!" I snapped.

"Yes, Goddess," the pathetic A.I. said.

A high tempo, catchy pop song came on. I didn't recognize the singer, but I could tell it to be a teenage girl; some up and comer. It sounded pretty good. Soon I found myself dancing. I picked up my phone and hopped my way to the stairs, then up and down the first few steps to the beat. The song still played as I made it to the top of the stairs, and spun into my room.

I tossed the phone on the bed and danced in front of the mirror, admiring my amazing moves. As the song ended, I found myself winded.

"Damn, I'm hot!" I sang.

The DJ came on the radio, "That was Can Only Be One, by the brand new band, Barefoot Garden! Wasn't that amazing? I think they have a future in the music industry!"

I stared at myself in the mirror, blinking several times. "You gotta be shitting me."

Spinning on my heel, and shouted. "Turn off the music. In fact, the next time that song comes on, CHANGE the station!"

"Yes, Goddess," my phone said.

Only when sharp pain came to my hands, did I realized I'd been clenching my fists too tight with long nails.

"OW!" I whined, looking at my palms, where deep indentations remained.

With a sigh, I kicked off my flip-flops and leaped on my bed. I picked up the phone and swiped it open. The notifications had reached sixteen. Four of which were now from Raven.

"What the hell do you want?" I groaned. Knowing her, she wanted sexy pictures of me. I regretted ever sending her one. You give a dog a treat, and it'll keep coming back for more.

I popped open the text message, and Raven's face appeared floating above the phone. She looked positively bored, and angry like she always did; resting bitch face. She said, "Vale! I know this isn't your scene, but there's a hot new rave tonight at Old McGregor's Corn Field. Remember, the old bastard died a week ago? They found him in his well, totally dead. Ha, jerkwad. ANYway, everyone from the junior and senior class is going to be there! Alusta, Fletch, and I are going for sure. Are you coming? If so, message me befoe ten, and we'll come pick you up!"

"Forget that!" I sighed. "I have a date with Jakey-Poo!"

"Do you wish to send your message?" My phone asked.

I narrowed my eyes and snapped, "No! Of course not, dumbass! Just play some music, and this time, no Barefoot Garden!"

As a new song played, I danced about, stripping out of my clothes and making my way to the bathroom. I set the phone next to the sink and hit the on button for the shower.

Looking at myself in the mirror, I gave a sigh of relief. I looked just as sexy as the day before. A giggle popped from my lips as I remembered Taco Hippotamus and Bosoms. I had a WAY better body than both of them. With balance between boobs and ass, I bore the perfect combination, and Jakey loved it.

I danced into the shower, holding my arms out and letting the scrub brushes do their work. The music had me bobbing my head and humming. The music stopped, and I raised a brow. "What the...?"

Then the phone rang, playing the famous Bunny Dance-Dance Song.

"Jakey!" I cried and dove out of the shower, slipped and sliding into the door face first. "OW!" I rubbed my nose and looked and cried, "Answer Call!"

Raven's face appeared above the phone, and I frowned. "Dammit, Raven!"

"Whoa!" Raven cried. "I think I'm going to get a nosebleed!"

My eyes flew wide. "Video Mode off!"

Raven sighed and fanned her face. "Whoo, now I'm all hot and bothered. Did you SEE that Alusta? What about you Fletch?"
