When I spoke to you last I was still on the Private Island in The Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Well, that was short lived. Once I had slept with the majority of good looking homosexual men on the island I was completely lost as to what to do. This was a mutual thought between all of my friends and I. Normally, when the island was at capacity with all of our friends, the evenings would consist of drinks and intercourse with whomever, yet as the amount of people decreased and it resulted in just being Elliot, Lee, Kelly, Kayleigh, Gabrielle, Ellie and Myself the evenings were somewhat boring. We were on a private island - there was nowhere to go.
On one of the days when the boredom had reached day times too we enjoyed a few cocktails around the pool and as usual, Gabrielle was drunk by her second or third one and came up with the marvellous idea of enjoying some Karaoke in the evening. Desperate times - desperate measures. When she suggested it we all looked at one another and Kelly said "Is she serious? How old are we, six?" Gabrielle dismissed this and said "It will be fun!" She took out her Blackberry and rang the concierge. We all listened in to her conversation as she said "Good day, my friends and I would like a Karaoke machine by this evening please - I don't mean one of those hideous monstrosities from the middle ages that they use at those blue coat establishments, a modern one like" she looked at me and said "Kyle what are those things called where you have a remote and you wave it around?" I had no idea what she was talking about and just looked at her blankly "They have them in Harrods... A poo... Oh a Wii or A playstation, which ever one is better. I do not care how you get it or how much it costs, just ensure it is here by this evening please. Thank you."
When the evening finally arrived we had all been drinking cocktails since midday and therefore were on our way to becoming drunk. Elliot messaged us all telling us to go to his Villa where the brand new Playstation had been delivered and so I put on a tracksuit and went. None of us had made any effort what so ever, Elliot, Lee and myself were all wearing tracksuits and the girls were in cardigans with vest tops and tracksuit bottoms, that said - Gabrielle's cardigan was Rick Owens and so probably cost a few hundred pounds, nothing out of the norm haha. Whilst a couple of people from the hotel set up the machine Kelly phoned room service, I think she ordered the majority of food on the menu with the exception of big meals and so we were brought about six bottles of wine, sushi, salad, fruit, cakes and pastries. Before beginning the fun that was Karaoke we all sat and discussed our departure. We said we would leave the following day in the evening and fly to Sydney - the nearest big city we could think of, and spend a few days there before perhaps flying straight home or stopping off in places in between. After about half an hour the wine had gone straight to my head and I made the suggestion of Gabrielle starting the Karaoke.. The things one does when under the influence. Gabrielle of course jumped at the suggestion, just like she would any other opportunity to show off a talent.
She started off with a Disney song by Miley Cirus and hit more or less every note haha, it was rather good actually as it rates how you sing.. I had no idea. Following this, as it looked rather fun, I joined her and we performed a duet to High School Musical's Breaking Free haha. I am cringing somewhat I may just inform you. As I got up to join her there was a series of groans from everyone except Gabrielle who was jumping for joy, we both said "What?" and Kayleigh replied "You do realise this is supposed to be fun, you two are amazing singers and in comparison we are going to look absolutely abysmal." I smiled and said "Kayleigh you're going to have to come to terms with the fact that not everyone can be perfect like Gabrielle or myself, we are just lucky dear" and kissed her on the forehead haha. We were actually rather good I must say, half way through Ellie said "This is absurd. You're better than Zac for crying out loud" After various songs we progressed onto chart music as opposed to Disney and then the night becomes a blur haha. I do recall walking back to my room with Gabrielle and she was lunging through the air all the way singing "We're soarin', we're flyin'" ... A line from High School Musical for those of you who don't know. I now shamefully do!
The following day I woke up and took my dehydrated self to the pool where I found Elliot asleep on a sunbed and Kelly and Kayleigh stood at the bar. I lay down and removed my top, ordered a bottle of water from a passing waiter and then Elliot woke up. He told me of the headache he had when he awoke and then found sushi in every room of the villa plus a bra hanging from a door handle haha. I said "Can we go back to your Villa in a short while?" he replied "We can go now if you like" I told him I had to re-hydrate first and then asked "Did anyone book a jet last night? I can't remember.." He said he wasn't aware of anyone doing so and then phoned Kelly and Kayleigh who were a mere 100 yards away (I have no idea how far that is, it was a guess - they weren't far) and told them to come over. Neither of them had booked a jet so I said I would do it, Kayleigh said "Oh gosh, we're in the middle of nowhere and want a jet within the new few hours. Will that be possible?" Elliot myself and Kelly all looked at her like she was unbelievably stupid and I said "We all have Black American Express cards and are all important members to the jet clubs. How hard can it be?" I phoned Jackie and she managed to a book a jet which would be on the mainland ready to fly at 8 p.m. It had just turned 12. Behind me I heard a scream and more or less everyone turned and looked at Gabrielle who was stood in a bikini with a matching pareo around her waist, sunglasses and of course heels having a tantrum stomping her feet on the spot and waving her arms. I presumed it was a bee and then came an even louder scream - it had stung her. The screaming stopped and she just stood there, I had dealt with such situations many of times in the past. She was crying. I said "Oh Christ.." and walked over to where she was. The sting, which was on her foot, was practically unidentifiable, however after years of experience with Gabrielle the "Pull yourself together" approach doesn't quite work and therefore, being my little sister, she gets a little leniency. I carried her like a baby to where the others were and sat down with her still on my knee and asked "Why were you screaming so much?" she said "I thought they were deadly out here.. What if I get Malaria" and started crying again haha. She really is quite intellectually challenged.
After having a spiffing time with Elliot I began packing my belongings. This took quite a while, as always, due to the fact that my clothes were scattered around the suite and in other people's suites also. By the time I had finally packed everything it was time to leave. I had a bellboy come and collect my bags then all of us went to my yacht which was to take us to Hamilton Island where the airport was. Well, airport may be a little generous - runway. I spent the journey over in the gym with Elliot and a few minutes prior to our arrival I showered and changed. The distance from the marina to the runway was only short however between us we had 67 items of luggage therefore we had a convoy of SUV's waiting to take us.
Once on the jet we all took our seats, I sat on the couch this time as I was exhausted and instructed Elliot to sit next to me for leaning purposes. As usual my nerves were uncontrollable whilst taking off however I fell to sleep within half an hour and didn't wake until the huge bump as we hit the runway in Sydney bounced me from my seat. It appeared that everyone else other than Gabrielle and myself had been wide awake for quite some time. Taxiing to the airport seemed to take forever, Gabrielle used to time to perform abnormal stretches in order to rid her self of stiffness and I had Elliot scratch my back (it is simply one of those things I adore - like the cold side of a pillow.)
Once at the cars the drivers asked us where we were going. Each of us looked at one another searching for answer, only, nobody had one... We hadn't booked any accommodation haha. When nobody answered Lee looked to the driver and said "There is a four seasons in Sydney isn't there?" The driver told him that there was and so that was where we headed. When we arrived bellboys came to get the luggage from the cars whilst Kayleigh and myself went inside. We approached the desk and I said "Good Evening, could you tell me which suites you have available, there shall be seven of us accommodating here for a while." After looking on the computer the man said "We have the presidential suite available, along with a royal suite and four executive suites. Aside from suites we also have a range of guest rooms available." I handed him my American Express and said "Could you book the Presidential suite and the Royal Suite on this card please." Kayleigh said "Swine" as I had taken the two best rooms and then she said "and I shall take an executive. Could you inform me when one of the better ones becomes available please" she too handed him her Black American Express. The others entered the lobby and came to book rooms, I handed Gabrielle the key to The Royal Suite and gave Elliot the spare key to The Presidential Suite, he said "Oh marvellous, do I have the pleasure of sharing a bed with you for the next few days then?" I laughed and said "Sorry to disappoint my friend, it is a two bedroomed suite. Nevertheless, you do have the pleasure of sharing a bed with me for the next few hours..." Whilst in the middle of kissing Kayleigh protested and said "That is so unfair" Elliot and I realised this point was directed at us and she continued "You two slept together a matter of hours ago, you could at least pleasure another one of us!" Elliot replied "Kayleigh dear, you are fully aware of the fact that Kyle and I are homosexuals therefore, obviously, our first choice of person to sleep with is going to be another male. Seeing as Lee is straight we often opt for one another when in a group such as this one." Kelly then said "Kayleigh dear, I plan on going to my room and putting on a pair of jeans to see what's in the bar here. Join me if you wish." With that Elliot and myself went up to our room.
The suite was absolutely magnificent and boasted spectacular views of the opera house. Like a child, as soon as we got into the suite Elliot went running to get the best room. Upon seeing that his was much better than mine due to having a dressing room and much bigger bathroom I said "Excuse me Elliot however I fear you have forgotten who is paying for the suite. This room is mine." He said "That is barbaric! Countless times I have paid for the room and you have-" I butted in and said "There is no reason for this conversation to continue Elliot. This is my room." Elliot was quite right, he has paid for suites on numerous occasions and I have taken the master bedroom, he ought to be aware by now that I always get my own way haha. As I walked past him to put my holdall on the bed he said "You infuriate me Kyle McQuillan" and then out of nowhere I felt the huge impact of his fist hitting my back. I of course retaliated with more force as I span and punched him on the arm for which I received several blows to the chest and then an attempted kick at my side - I grabbed his leg and then his thigh and lifted him so he fell onto the floor, almost as soon as he had hit the ground he kicked me on the back of the knees and I too was on the floor. When he tried to get up I slid myself through his open legs, grabbed his ankles and pulled them towards me; he managed to save his face from hitting the floor by landing in a press up position before rolling onto his back placing his feet on my chest and sending me flying backwards. More or less as soon as I had landed he was on top of me punching me in the chest. Oh my life. The pain was indescribable. I rolled over so that I was now on top and subjected him to several punches which were intended to be more painful than the ones I had just received haha. Out of nowhere he grabbed my head and pulled it towards his, I thought he was going to head but me at first however he started kissing me and, let's just say we didn't move from the floor for the next couple of hours or so...
I was woke by Gabrielle phoning me in the morning asking me whether I wanted to go running. I told her I would and so put on my tracksuit, grabbed my i-pod and Blackberry and then went to her room. Her room was rather nice however was quite a lot small than mine. Once ready, with her ipod strapped to her arm she said "I had the concierge give me a running route so we ought to stick to that. If we get lost then we have Satellite Navigation on our phones so it shan't be too much of a problem, or we could just get a chauffeur to come and collect us." I was unaware that we were going running outside and I presumed we would just be going to the gym. In light of this new information I had to go back to my suite to get a pair of sunglasses and when I did so Elliot decided he would join us.
After an hour and a half we stopped for a short while to purchase a bottle of water, Gabrielle, as usual, took the opportunity to drop into splits, bring her leg up to her head amongst various other abnormal looking stretches. Meanwhile Elliot and myself found from our trainers/watch things that we had ran 9 miles and then Gabrielle said "Oh I thought it would have been more than that. We ought to increase our pace a little. Are you ready to go?" She was not tired in the slightest... As usual. Two hours and 16 miles later Elliot and myself were getting slightly tired, Gabrielle was still fine then she shouted "How many miles have we gone?" I told her it was 25 and she said "The route the concierge gave me was 30 so I suggest we sprint for the next 2 miles and then gradually slow for the final 3." Off she went. Elliot and I maintained a quicker pace however Gabrielle was ahead haha. When we finally arrived back at the hotel I was somewhat exhausted. I felt as though we had just ran around the perimeter of Sydney. Elliot and I were bent over catching our breath and Gabrielle was stood perfectly upright texting someone and then she said "I am actually rather surprised we managed to stick to the route.. Oh my goodness, it wasn't that strenuous the pair of you." We all went into the lift and took it up to our floors. It stopped before it reached ours and Kayleigh and Ellie looked at the three of us in shock. They were dressed for shopping with their sunglasses on and said "Jesus... What a trio!" I must admit, we did look rather peculiar. We all had sunglasses on wearing shorts and vest tops with i-pod armbands on, Elliot and myself were sporting two rather hideous Nike watches which worked with our trainers and i-pods to tell us our pace, distance, calories burnt and change the song according to speed, Gabrielle's boobs were bulging out of her top too they were so squashed in her sports bra haha. Kayleigh said to Gabrielle "Where have you been?" She told them she had been running with us and she said "Why is it that they look disgusting and you look fine?" Gabrielle replied "I wouldn't say fine Kayleigh dear. It is due to the fact that I am a ballerina, my stamina is far superior to theirs and I have less weight to carry. I do a lot of running!" Kelly said "Well I shan't ever be going running with you Gabrielle, I fail to keep with Kyle and it appears he has found it challenging keeping up with you." It is rather comical that they are best friends yet know nothing about one another's exercise regimens. They won't go to the gym with anyone as they claim they look dreadful. I have been with Kelly a few times but she'd much rather go on her own and have a session with her personal trainer (who she sleeps with after each occasion.)
After showering I put on some Dior jeans with a plain white t-shirt and a Louis Vuitton scarf and went with Gabrielle to meet Kayleigh and Kelly for lunch. Lee was with some girls somewhere, Ellie was with friends somewhere and Elliot was going back to bed haha. When we got to the restaurant where we were dining Kelly and Kayleigh had bags from various shops and said "It feels so good to purchase clothes.. I haven't done so for weeks!" I could completely sympathise. I had been craving a visit to Dolce & Gabbana since the day the privilege was taken from me on that wretched island! Therefore it was inevitable that after dinner the four of us went shopping and purchased various items of clothing from most of the nameable designer's stores. I had bought four pairs of jeans, several t-shirts, five pairs of shoes, three pairs of trainers, seven pairs of sunglasses and I can't remember what else. Whilst walking out of Gucci I said to Gabrielle "How much did you just spend?" she replied "Nine thousand.. Yourself?" I replied with a modest "Four" and she said "Oh.. Productive. Mother and Father will know we're still alive when they read their bank statements then. I haven't spoken to them for a few days." Whilst shopping we decided that we would have a night out that evening and so, whilst in Dolce & Gabbana we asked the shop assistants where the exclusive nightclubs in Sydney were; one male in particular was rather good looking and said he would also be out that evening and we may see him there. That was a hint if I have ever heard one.
A short while and a few thousand pounds later we returned to the hotel and informed the others that we would be going out tonight. I say that as though we would be together. We would result in splitting up - that was unavoidable. I was wearing a new black Alexander McQueen shirt which was a bit see through, that boded well considering my physique haha, a pair of Dolce & Gabbana graphite coloured metallic pants, a pair of Alejandro Ingelmo loafers which were black leather with metallic crocodile pattern down either side, a Fendi belt and a silver Gucci bracelet which had the Gucci crest and a couple of horses heads on. Elliot came out of his bedroom wearing more or less the same thing so I told him to change his colours over, he was then wearing a metallic grey shirt with black pants. The two of us went to the bar in the hotel and ordered a drink. A short while later Lee came downstairs with a girl who I had never seen before, she was wearing some jeans with a blouse and Laboutin heels. Lee introduced her as Lydia or something like that and she sat with us, she was quite pretty but just like all the other girls Lee slept with she was so dim. If I asked her something she would stop gazing around the room to look at me and then drag the word "What?" on for much longer than necessary at which point I would give up. More or less as soon as she had finished her drink Lee said "Well we ought to be leaving shortly so I have you number. I will be sure to call you sometime." He was lying, just like each and every one of us did when those words passed our lips. Once she had left Lee said "Christ, she was like a leech! Three times I have slept with her today because she wouldn't leave and it is impossible to hold a conversation with the girl." Gabrielle, Kelly, Ellie and Kayleigh entered the bar wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton. Balenciaga and Gabrielle was wearing a rather nice dress with a pair of Givenchy lace boots. We all had a rather large glass of Champagne and a round of shots and then went outside. Whilst awaiting the cars I complimented Gabrielle on her dress and she said "It's by Victoria" (Beckham) "she invited me and mother to the private event in London a short while ago. The lady is lovely and is extremely passionate about designing and due to being a family friend we ought to support her, what's more they are nice dresses. I bought the entire collection." I had a minor moan and said "You get so much more than me!" at which point she said "Kyle do not make such ludicrous comments! Incase you have forgotten your house costs close to four thousand pounds per night and you're not even there for half the year!" ... I always forget about that minor factor when I complain about how much I get haha.
When we got to the lounge we skipped the queue and were granted access upon giving the doorman a glance at our credit cards. Once inside a member of staff took us directly to a table which was well situated in the lounge however as we passed people did not attempt to disguise the fact that they were staring, which was not a good sign. Do not get me wrong, I simply adore making people's jaws drop and taking over a room when you walk in, however this wasn't like that. It was as though they had never seen a group of good looking, well dressed people before. When we sat at the table Lee said "Have we just entered a sophisticated exclusive lounge or the YMCA, I received the impression that we were in the wrong place the amount of peculiar looks we just got." Kelly butted in and said "Oh I'm sorry, that was my fault... I was helping Gabrielle tuck her breast back in haha, she was exposed!" I laughed and said "Breast? ... Lump of silicone!" Gabrielle slapped me and said "What else was I to do? I was still an A at the age of 18, I blame school!.. Well not school -" An older man (40 ish) from the table behind us, who had clearly been listening to our conversation, butted in and said "Shit, what school was that? A place where they prevent puberty from occurring?!" He turned around to his friends and started laughing and then turned back and said "Actually look at the size of you! It was probably one of those places you go to for thinspiration!" Once again he turned around and started laughing. I was filled with anger and looked at Gabrielle who now had tears in her eyes. I stood up to walk over and punch the man however Kelly stood first and said "Excuse me darlings, this isn't going to be very ladylike but..." she turned to the man and punched him directly in the face and screamed "How dare you!" Gabrielle was now properly crying so I walked over to punch the man for myself, it would have a much greater effect than Kelly's good attempt, however, as I swung my arm back to punch him Elliot grabbed it. I looked at him and said "What on earth are you doing?!" he just said "Kyle don't" I was not in the mood. I could hear my sister crying whilst Kayleigh and Ellie comforted her, Kelly was shouting at the man who was now aware that I was going to punch him and was stood with his friends looking at me. Ellie shouted "What the hell are you doing Elliot! Let go of him!" Out of the corner of my eye I saw the man attempt to hit me so I ducked, missing his punch, only to come back up and head butt Elliot (so that he would let go of me) and then tackled the man to the floor. When I was on top of the man hitting him one of his other friends punched me in the face and then Elliot came flying in out of nowhere and sent the other man flying. Two others then jumped on Elliot and so Lee joined in. The man who I was on top of was punching me in the face and I was doing likewise and then Kelly walked over and shouted "You make me sick!" and kicked him across the face - I personally witnessed his tooth fly out of his mouth. I almost vomited! Then out of nowhere Kelly screamed and went tumbling on top of me whilst the man continued punching me, I heard Lee shout "Don't you dare touch her!" and then Kelly jumped up and presumably punched him and then said "Amazing how a British slut can disfigure a nose!" Then I punched the man in the face for a last time. I may have knocked him out, I wasn't really aware of what was going on. At that point various security man came and hustled all of us outside.
Once outside all of us were bleeding. Elliot's nose was pouring, the man who I had been fighting with was slumped against a wall, all of the other men had noses on their cheeks, cuts and swollen parts of their face, Lee had a ripped shirt and a bleeding lip and eyebrow and my lip and nose were bleeding. Gabrielle was stood hugging Ellie and Kayleigh and then walked back inside; she shouted something at the manager who was on his way out and then carried on walking. Kayleigh came over and hugged me and said "I think you'd better talk to her Kyle... It's been on her mind a lot lately seeing as she's been thinking about dancing a lot and you're parents brought it up a lot whilst in Paris. It must be hard. None of us ever speak about it." A lady came storming out of the lounge and walked directly over to the man who started the entire uproar and threw her drink in his face and said (in an English accent) "You are fucking disgraceful! This girl is lovely and you're nothing more than scum!" Gabrielle went over and said "He is honestly not worth it. Just go back inside and enjoy your champagne. Thank you." The girl hugged her and said "Bless you, don't listen to such" she looked at the man and screamed "TWATS! You're beautiful darling. I'll toast to you!" The girl went back inside and Gabrielle handed me a bottle of Cristal and gave another one to Lee then said "I just purchased twelve of these. My parents are going to think I am an Alcoholic" she was not in fact buying the twelve bottles for her self - she had bought them for the people surrounding us in the lounge to apologise for the commotion. In the light Gabrielle looked awful, she had makeup all down her face and she was still crying I hugged her and she cried more which made me do likewise. We stood not speaking for about 5 minutes crying on one another and then Kelly came over and said "Darling, I shed blood for you! There is not many people I would do such a thing for." We looked up and she had a rip in her tights and her knuckles were bleeding, Gabrielle laughed and said "Oh my life Kelly haha!" Kelly laughed and said "Well I am not going to allow someone to speak to you like that am I?" Gabrielle replied "Thank you dear, however I do think Kyle pretty much had that man covered" she turned to me and said "I actually thought you were going to kill him at one point" Kelly laughed and said "I know but I have never punched anyone in the face before and I thought this would be a good motif for loosing my virginity to such a terrible trait. Kyle always does it. It is rather rewarding though I must say." Gabrielle shouted over to Ellie and said "Book a jet darling, I want to go home within the next three hours. I shall go alone if you all want to stay." We all said we too would leave and so phoned the hotel in order to get cars to come and collect us. Whilst we awaited the chauffeurs I went over to Elliot and said "Elliot I do apologise, however I must ask: what on earth were you doing?" he said "Kyle I knew that if you punched that man what happened was going to be inevitable. At least if I tried to prevent you there was a slight chance of you not hitting him or he could have just left. You just always jump in fists first and don't use your head... Pardon the pun as this evening you used your head with great force! You are fully aware that I was completely on your side though as as soon as the fight had commenced I didn't waste much time trying to prevent it." I said "Well Elliot, you of all people are aware that if I am going to hit someone, I am going to hit them.. I am sorry for the headbut though, where did I get?" He looked at me and said "Where do you think?" as though I was stupid. I examined his face and the bloodiest part was his nose, I guessed at this and was correct. I didn't mean to get him that hard... I hope I haven't created a horrendous reputation for myself with the readers of this blog as it seems that each time I write I seem to be getting into some sort of fight with a stranger. I just want you to know that I do not do it without a good motif and a lot of the time it is because I am defending my peers. We left for London that evening and endured the same flight we did a number of weeks ago in reverse. About half way through the journey when we were all awake talking about various things to do with the past we reached some turbulence. As soon as the cabin attendant mentioned it I stopped speaking, clutched the armrest and put my head to my chest with my eyes shut. It was horrendous! The steward was falling all over the place and had to go and sit in his own seat as instructed by the pilot. Kelly offered me her hand as I was in obvious distress however groaned in pain and then replaced it with Lee's hand haha.
Once back in London I went straight home to go to bed and slept in for the majority of the next day (Saturday.) Once I had showered and taken the dog running I went to my parents house where my mother greeted me by saying "Oh you're alive?" I said "Yes mother of course I am alive" to which she replied "Kyle dear you say that as though it is obvious, the only thing which informed me that you weren't dead was my credit card... Anyway, did you have a good time? What on earth have you done to your face?" After being quizzed about that for a while my father came in and said "Oh my, been squabbling again have you? I sincerely hope they look worse than you do" my mother hit him and said "Harold! You should not encourage him to fight! It reflects badly on us as parents. I have brought you up better than that Kyle" my father said "I fear fighting is the least of your worries about us looking like bad parents..." Oh my goodness.. They make me out to be some sort of devil child! Following my short interrogation I asked where Gabrielle was when my father answered "I have no idea.. She went out fairly early this morning. To be honest she seems a little distant, well - more distant than normal which is a little worrying... Did something happen in Australia?" I told them everything was fine and looked for an excuse to leave. I went and got my father's Bugatti and drove to the first place I thought she would be: The Pineapple Dance Studios. Whilst on my way I received a message from my father saying "Kyle, why has the tracker for my Bugatti just turned on?" I replied saying "I have no idea father..." ever so innocently and he said "You my son are a swine. I love you all the same though, however, crash it and I shall be loving a corpse."
When I arrived there I asked where she was and went to the studio. I stood outside the window for a while and watched her as she leaped around the room and did various spins etc. Once the song had stopped I went inside. Unlike normal she seemed a little upset and said "How did you know I'd be here?" I said "Because Gabrielle you always used to say to me, nobody's life is perfect but when I'm dancing all of my worries sink into the depths of my mind and I escape reality" she did a weak smile and said "Let's go and get a drink." As we walked down the corridor there was a girl about sixteen a little further down wearing pointe shoes crying on the phone saying "My audition is tomorrow and I do not have any choreography. My future depends on this!" Gabrielle asked her whether she was ok and the girl merely said "Yes" and we walked on by. When we returned the girl was stood crying hysterically with her head in her hands. Gabrielle went over and said "Darling, you are clearly not ok and believe me I know how you feel. Where is it you're auditioning for?" The girl gave a name of a dance school and Gabrielle said "and what do you have so far?" The girl told her "Nothing" and Gabrielle replied "I am prepared to help you with your audition if you wish, however I completely understand if you would rather do it alone." The girl accepted Gabrielle's offer and then Gabrielle said "Right. What song are you performing to?" I can't remember what the girl said but Gabrielle said "Oh no, cliché... Kyle run and get my ipod. Meanwhile I need to see your ability in jumps and turns..." When I returned Gabrielle was jumping sidewards in the mirror and her legs were forming a perfect straight line either side of her before landing again on her toes. Once I was inside the studio Gabrielle said, "Kyle, come and hold me in this jump for a second" I held Gabrielle in the air whilst she talked the girl through the jump and then she watched as she too performed one and said "Marvellous, that is perfect!" Following this Gabrielle taught her how to perform some strange tip-toe movement by making frequent small steps to get across the room. The girl found it a little hard at first however once they broke it down she managed. I literally could have watched it all day! After about an hour Gabrielle said "When did you say your audition was?" The girl replied "Late afternoon tomorrow and then I go back to Cheshire tomorrow evening." Gabrielle replied "Oh, where are you staying whilst here? Are your parents here too?" she said "No, they had to work. I'm in the Travel Lodge, it's all I could afford after paying for this studio." Gabrielle then said "Have you booked a studio for tomorrow morning?" The girl replied "No, I have no money, plus I have to get across London to audition." Gabrielle sighed and said "Well you shall have a studio tomorrow and you shall make it to the audition in time and what's more you most certainly will not be accommodating in the Travel Lodge tonight. I will find you alternative accommodation." The girl immediately said "No" when Gabrielle replied "Dearest, I have a Black American Express and a Ferrari. You are really not putting me out of my way what so ever." The girl came over and hugged Gabrielle and then said "I cannot thank you enough!" Gabrielle said "Do not mention it. What's more, I attended The Royal Ballet and you have nothing to perform for an audition which is in a days time, I feel my help could be somewhat beneficial." The girl then got extremely excited about Gabrielle's schooling and I left.
I got back to my parents house and they told me they were departing for Milan. I said "Oh I didn't know you were going away" my mother said "Well if you kept in touch dear.. Where is your sister?" I just said she had gone to Kelly's and then she said "Oh well do tell her it was nice seeing her for the whole four hours I did" I said "Is it our fault that you are leaving for Milan when your children have just returned from Australia? What are you going for anyway?" She told me it was for the fashion events and that she wanted my father to treat her, I said "Ugh, I don't get any treats from Dad" I was of course joking and my mother said "Oh you do have a cheek Kyle McQuillan. It is difficult for one to treat their child when he purchases everything he could possibly want at your expense." ... I didn't really have an answer for that one. My mother then asked whether I would mind taking them to the airport, normally I would, however it is an excuse to drive one of their cars with permission haha. I went to where all of the car keys are kept and had a rummage before eventually I choosing the Bentley.
Whilst on the way to the airport with my mother, father and Pretitia - my mother's Shiba Inu, in the back of the car I thought I would give them a little adrenaline rush and go a bit quicker. As I reached 85 my mother said "Kyle, how fast are you going?" I just nonchalantly said "Not much more than the limit mother" as we approached 95. Once I was at 110 she said "Kyle slow down immediately before you kill us all" I didn't and she said "Harold!" at which point my father said "Kyle do as your mother tells you" so I did haha. Once we had returned to a reasonably boring speed my mother said "Why is it that you'll do as your father tells you but you completely ignore me?" I laughed and said "Because Haz is boss!" When we arrived at the airport I got out of the car to say goodbye, kissed my mother and then went to hug my father who squoze me and whispered "Stay away from my cars you swine" and then squoze a little harder until my spine cracked, I then tightened my grip around him and said "How are you going to stop me?" and then returned the favour and cracked his spine.
Later that evening, after having been to the gym and returning to my parents house Gabrielle came home. I asked where the girl was and she said "Oh I took her to your hotel and got her a room there... I doubt we'll even have to pay. What are we having for tea?" I replied "You ask as though you expect me to know... I have no idea. Do you want to go out or shall I ring Jake?" She told me to ring Jake which I did and told him to come round. Seconds later Gabrielle screamed at the top of her voice and came running back into the kitchen and stood behind me. I had no idea what was going on and then Jake came walking in saying "What on earth is wrong with you?" I said "Oh my goodness, that was quick!" He said "I was in the gym when you phoned me you imbecile.. What's up with you?" Gabrielle got her breath back and said "You almost gave me a heart attack! Coming thumping up the stairs in your tracksuit.. Anyway, what are we having for tea?" he said "What ever you like Gabrielle. What did you have in mind?" She replied "Steak, what do you want Kyle?" I said I too would have steak and then Gabrielle said "Well why don't we just sit in the media room all night and watch films and eat stuff which is undeniably bad for us?" I said it sounded like a good idea and then she said "So can we have scones, sushi, sorbet..." Jake smiled and said "Why of course.. I shall just shower and get to it straight away. How are we having our stakes this evening? The usual, Rare and Blue?" We both nodded and I said "Almost raw if you please."
After we had eaten our tea we went into the media room where Jake had laid out a number of silver platters displaying various delicious foods, Muffins, Cup-cakes, Sushi... The dogs joined us on the couch and we watched In Her Shoes whilst enjoying a glass of wine. Once we had finished watching that film we put Billy Elliot on which we both simply adore. This film inevitably raised the subject of dancing. Gabrielle told me how she enjoyed her day with Jade (presumably that girl's name) and how she had been thinking a lot about dancing lately; at one point she began to cry and said "There are doors which I have forced shut and refused to open for quite some time now. It's as though I've had a past life Kyle and I hate it. I think I want to go back to School for a look around. I haven't been back since I left and it's the place where I spent 7 years of my life, some of my happiest memories are from there and I have completely shut it off... That said, I doubt I could go back to Florida yet." We have a house in Florida where the four of us would go as a family every year when Gabrielle and I were at school and then we would often go elsewhere from there for the rest of the summer. When Gabrielle became ill the two of us moved to Florida for a few weeks whilst she recovered. This was the most devastating time of my life and I wouldn't want to wish a similar experience on anyone. We have never been back since, nor have my parents...
In the morning Gabrielle woke up early and went to the dance studio again with Jade whilst I invited someone round for obvious reasons. Once I was sexually satisfied I went to go and meet Kayleigh and Ellie for lunch however stopped by the studio to say good luck to Jade. When I got inside Gabrielle was stressing and said "Oh thank god you're here! Where are you parked?" I told her where and she said "Oh Gordon Bennett.. Here take my car, will you take Jade to her audition, she cannot be late. Jade I do apologise. Ensure you fasten your seat belt and have something to hold on to." She threw me her keys and then said to Jade "When you get there run through it one final time and then do some barre work. Good luck my love. I will collect you in a few hours and take you to the train station if you wish.." Jade said "Oh no, I shall be fine. You have done enough. I will be sure to keep in touch. Gabrielle I cannot thank you enough, you have been such a help!" They hugged and then Gabrielle said "Well be sure to let me know when you receive your letter. I took the liberty of booking you on a first class train home, I wouldn't feel right knowing you were travelling all that way in economy." Jade and I went to the car park and got in Gabrielle's car and once inside she said "Why did she tell me to hold on? Can you not drive very well?" I laughed and said "Oh please. I drive exceptionally well, just fast" she let go of the door and said "Oh, bring it on! haha" I laughed and put the music on full blast and went from 0 - 60 haha. Once I had said good bye to Jade I phoned Gabrielle to ask where she was and whether or not she wanted to come for dinner, she said "I'm at your house.. I couldn't go any further in that wretched car. I got pulled over twice!" I asked how on earth she managed to do that and she said "Well you only have to touch the pedal and it goes zooming off. It is horrendous! I would press the pedal, fly about 500 metres, have a panic attack and hit the break until I stopped and do the whole routine all over again. Both of the officers were men though so I just explained how the car was new and pouted a little and everything was ok... I shall join you for lunch, come and collect me, I have some clothes here I think." After lunch Gabrielle and I went shopping and then met our friend Chloe and Julia in London in a lounge for a few drinks in the evening. Prior to going home I made a few phone calls and had a marvellous night with Stephen.
For the rest of the week I have been going to the gym, meeting with friends, meeting with random people... Nothing out of the ordinary really.
I shall write soon,
