Part 2 of the 5th Grade Arc is here! Here, I'll be revealing another instrument that Milo plays as well as Melissa's singing chops! ROLL IT!


It's just after Winter Break - January 6, 2014. It was tough for the students of John Trystate Elementary to return to school after a week-long break, but it had to be done. Now it's straight through to the Easter break in late April, then back at it straight through until June. Needless to say, the ones affected the most by Winter Break coming to a close are Milo Murphy and Melissa Chase.

"Arrgh! I hate that Winter Break is over, 'Liss!" Milo said to his ginger friend with a hint of disdain in his voice.

"Same here, Milo..." Melissa responded. "Now it's back to dealing with Drill Sergeant Slater. Only good side in all this is that we still have straight As."

"Yeah...5 more months and we'll conquer our parents' challenge!" Milo cheered.

"And we'll be in Times Square for New Year's come December!" Melissa added as they headed into Mr. Slater's class...but not before they saw a poster for the upcoming Talent Show!


"John Trystate Elementary School Talent Show - Saturday, February 15th...show us what you got and compete for the title of Most Talented...signups in every class through the end of January..." Milo read. "Melissa, this is so you!"

Melissa looked at the flyer and started envisioning her act. "Milo, you're so right! But...I'd love to do it with you!"

Milo smiled. "You got it, Melissa!" the jinx said to his fiery ginger best friend.


Once inside Mr. Slater's class, the tall, gruff, Marine of a teacher told everyone about the Talent Show and passed the signup sheet around. Milo and Melissa were quick to sign up. There was but one other signup from the class...Amanda Cristina Lopez.

"AMANDA?!" Milo and Melissa said in unison, shocked.

"You're not the only ones who think they got talent..." Amanda retorted before turning her attention to Melissa. "Buckle up, sister...you're in for a big disappointment."

"Oh, it's on, Lopez!"

'Sounds like we got us a rivalry on our hands...' Milo thought to himself.


Signups continued throughout the month. Also throughout the entire month of January, Milo and Melissa rehearsed their act. It would be Melissa singing one of her favorite songs by her favorite artist, Taylor Swift - with Milo on guitar.

"So what song are you gonna sing, Melissa?" Milo asked.

"I'm planning on burning Bradley for all the times he's tried to hit on me. How about 'I Knew You Were Trouble'?"

"You're gonna Swift him?"

"'Swifted'? What's 'Swifted'?" Melissa asked.

"It's what happens when someone dates Taylor Swift, does something extremely dumb and then she writes a hit song telling the entire world that you're a total jerkface," Milo explained. Melissa knew in no time where he got that explanation from.

"I probably shouldn't have gotten you into 'Big Time Rush'..." Melissa deadpanned.


Finally came the night of the talent show. The weirdest of the weird started off - everything from sword swallowing, to juggling to playing the didgeridoo on a unicycle. Finally it came time for Amanda's act. She took to the piano and played Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.

Backstage, Milo and Melissa were taking in Amanda's performance.

"She's good..." Milo marveled.

"Real good..." Melissa remarked. "Means we have to be much better..." she added as Amanda finished up.


"Top that, Chase!" Amanda taunted as Milo and Melissa took the stage, Principal Marsh introducing them.

"Up next: The dynamic chaos-bringing duo, performing their version of Taylor Swift's 'I Knew You Were Trouble'...here are MILO MURPHY AND MELISSA CHASE!"

Melissa took to the microphone with Milo on guitar. Milo started strumming away on his guitar...Melissa's cue to take to the mic and sing. During the first chorus, she actually walked into the crowd and shoved Bradley to the floor!


Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago

I was in your sights, you got me alone

You found me, you found me, you found me-e-e-e

I guess you didn't care, and I guess I liked that

And when I fell hard you took a step back

Without me, without me, without me-e-e-e

And he's long gone when he's next to me

And I realize the blame is on me

'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

'Til you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies. He'll never see you cry,

Pretends he doesn't know that he's the reason why

You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning-ing-ing-ing

Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street

A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be

And now I see, now I see, now I see-e-e-e

He was long gone when he met me

And I realize the joke is on me...

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

'Til you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in

That you never loved me or her, or anyone, or anything, yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

'Til you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

Trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

Trouble, trouble, trouble


As the pyrotechnics went off and the lights fell down due to Murphy's law, Bradley was dumbfounded in his seat. All he could muster was one sentence..."Oh no...I've been Swifted..."

After Milo and Melissa's performance, Principal Marsh announced the winners...MILO AND MELISSA! As Milo and Melissa raised the gold trophy for winning the Talent Show, Amanda came up to them.


"I must say...that was pretty amazing, you two. I would've never thought of a fireworks display to cap everything off," Amanda remarked, congratulating Melissa.

"Thank you, Amanda," Melissa responded.

"I gotta ask...how'd you of all people get into Taylor Swift?"

"It was Milo's doing. He got me Taylor's 'Fearless' album for my 7th birthday and I've been a Swiftie ever since."

"What about those falling lights? Were those part of the act?"

"No," Milo started. "That was Murphy's law. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong...around me," the jinx explained. Hearing this caused Amanda to run away.


'THAT JINX! I DON'T WANT TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR THAT MILO MURPHY!' Amanda thought to herself.

"I guess some people just can't handle Murphy's law the way you can, Melissa."

"Hey, if you can't stand the heat...stay out of the street..."


And so begins Amanda's perfectionism. Next up: Milo and Melissa take in the DAYTONA 500! See ya then and remember...

IT'S MILO'S WORLD AND WE'RE ALL LIVING IN IT!
