Olivia was the nervous type. That was pretty clear. She sat trembling before audition after audition, thus far getting pretty decent roles, she felt, considering her age. Nonetheless, the trend of not being cut did not seem to calm her stomach. This year felt worse than any she remembered from the past, perhaps because of one factor that had not existed at prior auditions.

He’s here.

Her first interaction with Demitri had been dreadful awkward initially, but once that passed, it was overall really fun. For her at least—she hoped he had fun as well. Spending time with Demitri made her very excited, but in a weird way, it also made her very nervous. The brunette wanted to get to know him, but at the same time, she was scared to make a fool of herself before him.

And now he was here, going to do the musical, and Olivia noted with mixed sentiment that it meant they would most likely be spending a decent amount of time together. And as Addi mentioned the Baker's Wife role kissing boys, she felt a blush rise in her cheeks. Admittedly, she thought it would be very unlikely for her to acquire such a role, but just for a second, her mind entertained the idea of her as the Baker's Wife. That second was all it took to make her cheeks burn.

Addi and her guests left them to practice, but the fifteen year old remained silent. She was always dreadfully self-conscious about her voice, especially for her audition song as it was one she had to pick out herself, and maybe it didn't quite fit her right. Instead, she sat quietly and listened to others practice while she tried to talk herself into getting up the next time she noticed someone coming back from that director. You can do it, she told herself. You've done this before. No big deal.

Nervously constricting fingers crumpling the edge of her sheet, Olivia eventually found enough motivation to pass through the glowing green door. "Hello, everyone," she greeted with as much cheer as she could muster, brown eyes desperate to avoid the bouncing six month old on Addi's lap. It was still so awkward for her, though she doubted Addi was even aware of her relation to her ex-boyfriend. Olivia felt pretty close to Uncle Paul, and she got the feeling that he was not quite over the director. ("Uncle" Paul was not that much older than she was, and she probably could have just called him by name, but out of respect, she attached the title.)

"Um, so, I'm Olivia. Knight." She hesitated before giving her surname out of habit, adjusted to omitting it for the sake of her former family's reputation. After all, she was a tarnish on their supposedly good name. "I'm going to sing 'On My Own' from Les Miserables," the Draco informed them, probably slaughtering the pronunciation of that musical's title. Brown eyes closed as she prepared herself, and a moment later, a slightly quivering jaw lowered and released the lyrics. It was a strong song, and as Olivia sang, she was surprisingly pleased with how well her voice seemed to handle it. She had practiced prior to today, of course, but nonetheless, she had not expected to actually sound this way. Was she... Was she good?!
