Portfolio Part 4 (Part 1Part 2, Part 3)

By Tessa Dean May 2021

“Annie I told you to go wash your face in the restroom. There isn’t a lot of time before the auditions start.”

“Mom, I saw a little park outside of the building while I was looking up at the roof of this building. It had a few trees and some bushes and plants. Looks like it could use some tender loving care. I could see one of the plants about to crack open its pot. Could we go sit there for a bit? I have to get away from all of these people for a while,” Annie wiped her eyes again.

“Okay we can go for a little bit, but you have to promise me to try and calm down. Remember you are a strong individual and practice the relaxing techniques your therapist gave you. I have to let Izzy know where we are going and then we will head outside.”

Mrs. Grissom pulled Izzy aside. “Look Annie is really rattled and wants to go sit outside for a little bit. If your names are called, just go without her. If she can’t pull herself together I am not going to allow her fears to stand in your way. She is bordering on a panic attack and I don’t know if I can pull her out of it in time. Did you make a decision on the type of modeling you were interested in yet so I know where to go if she makes up her mind to do this?”

“I am more interested in runway modeling and I think Annie said the same thing, but you might want to ask her. We weren’t sure if we should go as individuals or as twins. The trouble with that is I don’t know if she can pull it off and like you say, I don’t want her ruining my chances. I love her dearly, but she can be a drag at times. We may be identical in looks, but as far as personality goes we are very different. Go ahead, I will be fine, even if I have to go in by myself, but remember if by some chance they offer me a chance to model for them, I will need your signature on the contract.”

Mrs. Grissom hugged Izzy and then headed over to where Annie was standing in the corner. I don’t know if I can help her or not.

Portfolio Part 3 (Part 1, Part 2)

By Tessa Dean May 2021

“Annie what is wrong? Izzy, is she ok?” their mom asked on seeing Annie crying in the corner of the lobby.

“Physically she’s fine, Mom, however she is terrified and I don’t know how she is going to do this. She can’t go into the audition with tears flowing or even red, puffy eyes because everyone will know she was crying. You talk to her and remind her that this was her decision.”

Mrs. Grissom put her arms around Annie and hugged her. She handed her a tissue and waited until Annie stopped crying. “Annie, you have to stop crying. It ruins that pretty face of yours. Tell me what is wrong now. I thought you were okay with coming to this audition.”

“Mom, I’m terrified and look at all these beautiful people. What makes us so unique? I don’t know if I can do this.”

“Need I remind you how much money you dad and I have put out on just your portfolio alone? Not to mention all the outfits you wore for those photos. Plus the cost of the makeup artist and hair stylist. You promised us this was your greatest desire. I know you are only seventeen and technically still a child, but you have wanted to be a model for a very long time. I am sure Izzy is terrified too, but she doesn’t let it hold her back. You need to get a grip on your emotions and go wash your face with cold water. Then reapply the light makeup like the professional showed you. Go on, go!”
