"Oh! you're here!" Nina shouted from afar.
I roam my eyes in the whole ground of the venue. Everything is messy and no decorations on each side.
"I thought y'all already put some designs," Lea asks when she also notices that there aren't any designs.
"That's why you two are here." She concludes.
"The what!?" Lea shouted while pointing at herself.
"You want us to decorate those designs? are nuts!?" she continued.
I smirked and didn't bother to listen to every rant she has.
Nina started the preparation of the tables before turning his self in the backstage.
My mind is still with the thoughts of what happened last time.
This isn't the right time I wished, nor hope for this. Our world is getting smaller. Furthermore, I don't want to run again and forget this year.
My studies are my priority right now and I won't let someone take it away from me. Not Elton, not even Leo, and anyone.
Of all universities that will join the inter-high. Why does their university be one of them? I'm not saying their university is lowkey and doesn't have everything.
Stating facts isn't that harmful, it makes everyone learn from what. My mind right now is tangled and full of worries.
I stop my overthinking when Nina called my name. She's backstage preparing all the candidates before the pageant started.
"We have a problem," Nina said in a suspense voice.
"What problem?" my mouth uttered.
"Well..." she paused. "The candidate we had to represent architecture department. She didn't show up because of an emergency." she continued while smiling like an idiot.
"Why do I felt like you're happy that she didn't show up."
She's being too suspicious and the Nina smiled. I know she had an answer to it, and if she thinks that I can be its proxy. No.
"Lucia! this is a simple favor..please.." She begged and put his palms together as she looks at me.
"You know, Nina I don't do pageants like this," I said in a soft voice so no one can hear it.
"Lucia, I know... I know, but please just this time. Right!?" She said and looked at the person in my back.
I turned my back to see who is it. Only to find out it was Elton standing in front of us.
Looking at his pure black hair, good blue eyes, and thick eyebrows He's stunning, even if he doesn't take his shirt off. You'll feel you're the one who took those shirts off.
"Lucia!" Nina snapped in my face.
My mind went to normal and felt the embarrassment. Elton nodded when Nina said if it was okay if I represent the architecture department.
Then he left me! speechless!
I facepalm and pinch my face to clear all the thoughts and embarrassment.
"Alright! I'll proxy her." Finally, my mouth uttered.
I have no choice but to agree to them. Instead of losing the opportunity to help our department, I decided to join the pageant.
They bring me those long gowns and swimsuits that I'll be wearing in each part of the pageant.
My body is shaking after seeing those exposed bodysuits. Jesus! I have never been wear those kinds of stuff!
"You both want me to wear those clothes? please tell me to don't." my hand threw in the air to stop them from answering my questions. In my mind, I knew they were going to said "yes".
"Lucia, this isn't going to expose your body. You'll be using that bikini with a long blazer," Lea explained.
"Tsk! I still don't felt comfortable wearing that one." The feeling of cringe is between thighs, imagining myself wearing those. Fuck!
"Alright! candidates, ready for positions!" The instructor declared while looking at his cellphone.
I reach Lea's hand and pinch it. She didn't react while I'm doing it. Maybe she understands why am I doing it. Rico whispered something in my ears before leaving us in the backstage.
"Oh god, if I lose this pageant. I won't show up anymore." my ears heard it even if it's almost a whisper.
"We better do our best, Lucia joined the pageant because their candidate didn't make it." an anonymous girl uttered.
I smirked, didn't these two girls here notice that I'm not into pageants? or they do know but pretend not to.
You can do it! Lucia! you're Lucia!
Minutes before the show started, while I was with Lea and Nina. Lea was wearing denim shorts paired with her backless tube. Flexing her body shaped and flat tummy. I'm wondering right now what would they say if everyone saw me wearing those pieces of bikini.
"oh my god!" I said in my mind and covered my face.
After the retouched of our makeups, we finalized our numbers for each row. I was the 3rd candidate and representing the architectural department.
Now...let the pageant begin!
"Are you all excited students!!!" the gay Emcee shouted to the crowd.
"Woah!! go! go! go!"
"Go! BS engineering!!!"
The students shouted wicked while raising their pump lights. Every student had their own glow-in-the-dark bracelet with stick lights.
Students from different countries were having fun and letting their feelings show up. In abroad, people don't mind your body. Even if you undress in public, no one will care.
"Everyone, before we start the throwing walk of our beautiful candidates. I would like to call each visitor and director of this school." Ofiana announced while wearing her beautiful smile.
Students remained quiet while listening to the calls of the emcees.
"From the very rich family. Please welcome! Georgia Diaz!" she called and Georgia in her forties unique smile. She waved to everyone while bowing her head to pled pleasures.
The emcee continued introducing all the judges and will give votes to all candidates.
After the introduction part, the show starts to amazed everyone with flashes. Students were all shocked about the entrance, the lights exposing the first candidate.
"Alejandra Deiro, walking with her red velvet long gown. Stunning with the perfect blend of the lights on her gown and skin." the host introduces while reading something on his paper.
Those were students screaming each cheerful word to the first candidate.
The first candidate is in her position. While the second candidate is now walking through the center stage. A flesh of wavey brown shade gown, flexing its small broad shoulders.
When candidate number 3 is done and now in her position. The emcee called the third candidate that made them stared and stop for a while moment.
"Please welcome! candidate number 3!"
There, Lucia Diaz wearing her tubeless lavender gown. While walking through the perfect stage for her. She's indeed a princess in her own palace.
A messy bond matches her small face. She is indeed beautiful and much more stunning than before. Walking through the stage looking at everyone's furious eyes.
I must say, this girl is nothing to improved and prove. She's a dream girl, boys wanted to have. With her backless gown, revealing her perfect shade of body and beautiful skin.
