The house was quiet. Too quiet. Knowing that there were things roaming around the house, ready to pounce made my heart pound. The thump of my heartbeat became louder and louder until it was so loud I thought that they would be able to hear my fearful heart burst out of my chest. My heart sounded like a bass drum, being hit as hard as it could. I saw something out of the corner of my eye, some movement I thought. I jerked my head to where I thought I saw movement. Nothing except a shadow covering a corner of the room I was in.
I wasn't sure if I had seen something or if it was just my hyperactive imagination at play. But they do hide in the shadows, waiting to pounce on their fearful prey. They might have seen my eye looking near the shadow where they were supposedly standing and had moved so I would look at the shadow. But why? Was it because they wanted me to look so. they. could…
It was standing behind me. My breaths were more unstable now, I was almost wheezing in fright, and my heart, instead of slowly thumping, my heart was thumping rapidly, nearly bursting out of my chest. I could see what it looked like without turning around: sharp teeth made out of a bear trap, a large void-like head with bright, white, empty eyes, the head was the only reason it was taller than me and it was also its most prominent feature. The body… I wasn't sure about the body since the head nearly covered it.
While I was imagining what it looked like, I saw fingers reaching around, ready to grab me. The fingers were wiggling as if the thing was taunting me. I wanted to run but couldn't. I was stuck in place. I should've run when I had the chance.
Jade Amber Jewel is now Shere Khan in The Jungle Book!
We take you now to Jade Amber herself, who will give you more information on how she feels.
Thank you, unnamed newsperson. *ahem* AHHHHHHH OH MY GOD YEAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! WOO!
I'M SO HAPPY! This will be one of my favorite roles that I have ever done, I just know it!
Okay, so if you've been living under a rock and don't know what I'm talking about, I auditioned for Shere Khan in The Jungle Book and as you can clearly read, got the part!
I auditioned for this role last year but got the part of Mother Wolf. That was one hectic year and I've talked about it in my jlog, so I will not ramble about it here.
But basically, I auditioned, got a different role and at the end of the week, the director told my mom that he had wished that he had given me the role of the villain or even the lead, even though both are male roles.
So thanks to the director and "stage manager"?? and their coaching, I now am the villain, a type role that I have wanted for a while.
This girl is soaring right now. Not literally, but figuratively.
