So here is a longer
than usual chapter 2. I think that these two songs fit the chapter perfectly, especially
Enchanted. Let me know what you think and if you still want me to post songs
for the new story. Hope you like it!

knew she just made her publicist life way easier. In fact, the past year or so
had been easy in the romantic department for Tree because Taylor had avoided
dating all together. She had focused on her music and neglected love, not that
any budding romance was knocking on her door or anything. She had relationships
in the past but they had only lasted a few months. She had even tried girls.
Right before she went on this dating hiatus she had slept with one of the
model’s her friend Lilly had introduced her to. They had both been pretty drunk
and Taylor made her swear to never speak of it again. The model had complied
and they even still talked. It was going nowhere though. Taylor had like it but
there was no real connection between them that would be able to withstand any
of the stress Taylor public life would put on the relationship. So, the answer
was no. Taylor would not be bringing anyone to the event.

much you just jetting off places bothers me.”
fucking job Karlie!”
“I know that!
But incase you don’t remember my job also requires just as much traveling as
yours. Yet, by some crazy feat, I am able to let you know when I’m leaving
places. And, guess what? Each time I actually say goodbye to you. Crazy huh?”
Karlie was almost screaming now.
have time for this,” Cara stated.
god I hate you,” Karlie said through gritted teeth.
you,” Cara said before the line went dead.
threw her phone onto the bed, buried her head into a pillow and screamed. Cara
infuriated her. The blonde did this all the time. They were absolute best
friends but Cara could be the most selfish girlfriend sometimes. Even after 2
years she still had trouble picking up on the little things that bothered
Karlie. Karlie usually let it go but every now and then it all became too much
and it blew up into a fight like the one they just had. To Cara it just seemed
like Karlie was over reacting about one small thing because she didn’t notice
all the little things that Karlie swept under the rug. Karlie knew it was a
conversation that they had to have but she covered it up to herself by
reasoning that they were never in one place long enough for them to actually
have it. But if Karlie was honest with herself, the real reason they didn’t
have it was because the model was too excited to be happy with Cara that she
didn’t want to sway the boat with a conversation like that. She wanted to enjoy
when they were together. So that was added to the many issues that were swept
under the rug.
around 3 the next day when Karlie had finished her shower and was cleaning up
the suite, preparing for the makeup and hair teams. The bedroom was completely
spotless but the kitchen area was a mess. Her and Cara had been in town for a
few weeks and had been in denial that dishes were something that they would
eventually have to do.
Classic, Karlie thought looking at the
pile of dishes in the sink. Cara hadn’t even scrubbed one plate the whole time
they had been there. Karlie wasn’t even surprised.

ear without looking at the caller ID.

Karlie said quickly realizing who it was.

let out a frustrated scoff, “I have stuff I have to do Cara.”
so do I but I want to talk.”
Cara started but couldn’t find the words now.
Karlie said trying to speed it up.
sorry for not saying goodbye, I didn’t think it would bother you as much as it
did. If I had known I wouldn’t have done it.”
closed her eyes and sighed. Cara didn’t realize that it was bigger than just that.
“I’m sorry I over reacted. It wasn’t that big of a deal.”

you don’t. We just need to work some stuff out.”
kind of stuff?” Cara said a little worried.
fine right now. We can talk about it all when we see each other.”

I’m going to be thinking about it for weeks.”
gone for like a 10 days,” the model said giggling.
then 10 days. Just talk to me.”
Karlie took a deep breath. “It’s something we both need to work on.”
you don’t take into account how your actions effect me. Like when you say your

just happened’ doesn’t make me feel great. I just wish you would send me like a
text to let me know.”
I-“ Cara inturupted.

just as much to blame though. I don’t let you know when little things like that
bother me. I should do it more so we don’t have a blow up fight.”
Cara said simply.
I’ll try and work on it.”
Karlie said, surprise in her voice.
Cara said laughing. “It matters to you so yeah.”

well someone has to do it.”
went dead. Karlie smiled at how well the conversation had gone. She walked over
to the pile of dishes. She once again became frustrated realizing that most of
the dishes were Cara’s. She hadn’t even brought that up in the conversation,
nor was she planning on mentioning it. Not the best start to their whole ‘new
honesty and talking about how they feel’ approach to their relationship. Karlie
shrugged it off. Next time.

Mary Kate and Ashley.”

Tree said scrolling though her phone.
I even going to this?” Taylor asked, still confused as to why she was invited
to this event.
I would be good for you to make your way into the fashion world. This past year
you’ve made waves with your style, you’re a bit of an icon now. So when you
were invited and it fit perfectly into your schedule…”
get it. There aren’t going to be many musical people there though.”
be good for you to branch out.”
“Who should I talk to?”
Tree said scrolling through the list. “I remember the makeup team talking about
Karlie Kloss. They said you guys would hit it off. Maybe introduce yourself?”
know who she is!” Taylor said slightly excited. She had seen the model a couple
of times in magazines. She was truly stunning.
make sure you two meet then.”
Taylor said looking out the window still confused as to why she agreed to this.
babe! How are you? Where’s Cara?” Jordan asked quickly.
question at a time!” Karlie said hugging her friend.
very good, and yourself?”
London for a film.”

I haven’t seen her in so long,” Jordan played.

Karlie cried. “How are you?”
good. I didn’t know you would be here!”
surprise or a bad one?” Karlie joked.
obviously, Hey Jordan what’s up?”
babe. You look gorgeous!”
thanks,” Gigi replied. “Wait where is Cara?”
London,” Jordan answered for Karlie knowing that the taller girl would be
answering that question all night. Karlie and Cara were like the power couple
in the modeling world.

scans the crowed and finally sees Taylor in person for the first time. She was
stunning and almost at eye level with Karlie. Something the 6 foot plus model
wasn’t used to. Taylor’s dress fell just above her knees and accentuated her
long legs. She really could be a model. The blonde’s hair perfectly framed her
face and her lips were colored a deep rose red. Karlie was used to being
around beautiful people but something about Taylor surprised her. It may have
been her classical esthetic or the way she smiled or how cute her laugh was or
her deep blue eyes… oh shit she was looking at Karlie. Oh shit, Karlie was
standing in front of her.
Karlie choked. She cleared her voice. “Hi, I’m Karlie,” she said offering her

you!” Taylor said excitedly. “I’m glad you introduced yourself. I’ve been
hearing from so many hairdressers and makeup artists that we should meet.”
a lot of pressure to live up to,” Karlie said laughing.
giggled in response, “Yeah, I swear the amount of knowledge those people know
and bring them cookies to bribe them.”
too!” Taylor exclaims. “Them and radio hosts.”
that’s why they think we’re so similar,” Karlie suggested.
“Me and a couple of friends have a table over there if you want to join.”
sounds like fun!”

clapping for the last award recipient died down and people stood.

I’ll meet you at the back entrance. We can take my car.”
Taylor said turning to find Tree.
really had had the best night. Taylor had spotted Karlie as soon as she walked
in and made her way over to where the model was standing. She chickened out
though and turned to make small talk with a group of people a few tables away
from the model. When Karlie came up, the singer was surprised in the best way.
Karlie was more gorgeous than in the magazines. Her long legs went on for days
and her short bob cut, and strong cheekbones made Taylor question how someone
could possibly be that beautiful. But, it was her goofy and wide grin that made
Taylor’s heart jump. On top of it all, the girl was adorably kind. She always
introduced her friends to Taylor and noted when the singer felt slightly left
out of the conversation. Taylor had only known the model for a few hours but
could already tell she had a gift for putting others first. Now, Karlie was
inviting her to a party. Taylor couldn’t say no.
Tree,” Taylor said as she approached her publicist.
I sort of got caught up talking to people.”
fine. Ready to go?”
Karlie just invited me to an after party and I think I’m going to go with her.”
ok,” Tree said a little surprised. It was a little unlike Taylor to do
something like this last minute with people she just met.

waiting for her.
Taylor said a little out of breath from pushing through the crowds of people.

Do they know where back here?”
let them know.”
cool,” Karlie said turning to leave the door.
“Wait where’s Jordan?”

Taylor said following the model, surprised by how happy she was to have alone
time with Karlie.

it’s a good plan.”

“No, don’t worry about it. Seriously. Not a big deal.”

Taylor said sarcastically.
If tonight was any indication you seem to like models.”

blushed. “You blend right in. You are basically a model.”
blush matched Karlie’s. “Thank you for saying that. Not sure how true it is but

You’re too humble.”

cars parked outside.

low and thumped so loud it could almost alter your heartbeat.

“Let’s get a drink!” the model yelled.

heart skip a beat.

their glasses and taking a sip.

down. The singer was not going to try that so she took her drink with her to
where people were dancing.
drinks and a couple of hours later they were still dancing awkwardly and not
even thinking about the strange looks some people were giving them. Taylor knew
then that they would be best friends. Karlie couldn’t give two shits about what
people though and always put people she cared about before her. The singer was
surprised their worlds hadn’t collided earlier.
turned to one of the servers to put her drink finished drink on the tray.
Taylor looked at hers it was still half full so she kept hold of it. All of a
sudden a new song blasted through the speakers that made everyone around them
throw their hands up in the air. A couple more people flooded to the dance
floor. Taylor got pushed from the side and somehow ended up spilling the drink
all over her front.

finished dabbing the dress.

toilet to assess her work.

sighed and checked her phone. It was already way later than she was expecting
to stay out. “I think I’m calling it a night.”

“Ehh, I don’t know,” Karlie said looking around as if she was going to find the

leave. Karlie did the same.

Karlie said taking the singer’s phone. “I’m putting my number in your phone.
Call me. I’m doing absolutely nothing for the next three days. We should meet
like a plan!” Taylor said happily.

normally would have fallen asleep on the ride back to her apartment but she was
still so giddy over the whole night that sleep wasn’t even on her mind. Karlie
had seemed like a dream and meeting with her in the next 48 hours made her grin
like a little kid. She knew they would be best friends. But something in the back
of Taylor’s mind hopped it may be more. She blushed all the way home because for
the first time in a long time she found herself hoping that there was no one
waiting for Karlie back in her hotel room. Little did she know that Karlie was
indeed going back to an empty bed but someone was waiting on Karlie. They were
just halfway around the world.
