Letters By Heart

Tennyson Mason is a 15-year-old girl with a difficult life. Her family doesn't have much money, and her dad abuses her. Sonny is not very popular and she is definitely not a supermodel. But only one thing cheers her up--listening to One Direction, the popular boy band that doesn't know she exists. But when she takes a chance and writes to them, she never thought that her life would turn around. Is it all to good to be true? Or is this love life, which she never dreamed existed, meant to be?

10. The signing

We got up at 7am, and decided what outfit to wear. I borrowed Lilia's shirt and shorts, since she always had nicer clothes than me. We layed them on the bed, and Lilia made breakfast for us while I took a shower. I nibbled on my toast while doing my natural-looking makeup, and soon Lilia came into the room to get changed. She took one look at me through the mirror and shrieked. I jumped, leaving a trail of red shiny lip gloss across my cheek.

"What have you done?! You look like you got 2 black eyes and carrot skin!", she said, still looking st me with a horrified expression.

"I uh, thought it looked natural." I stammered. Lilia made a ticking sound, before walking to the bathroom.

"Natural for a boxer, maybe," she said, coming back out with a wet towel, " please, I beg you, let me do your makeup."

I took another look at myself in the mirror, before nodding to Lilia, who got to work straight away. When she was done her magic, I looked totally different. My lips shined with gloss, and the natural color eyeshadow brang out my lighter brown in my eyes. My cheeks had a warm peachy glow to them.

"Thanks Lilia, I must admit, I do look good for once" I said, admiring my reflexion again. Lilia responded with a smile, then returned to her makeup. I caked some cover up in my wrists and waited for her to finish. When we were all dolled up, we went down to the lobby, and since the signing was only a couple blocks away, we didn't need a taxi. As we were heading out the door, a little girl ran across our paths, crying. She looked around 7 years old, and had cute black curly hair that went down to her shoulders. She looked like she was wearing hand-me-down jeans, because they were all torn up.

"Mommy, why does Anna get to go to the signing and I can't?! I wanna go!" she sniffed, running into her mothers awaiting arms. Her mother was short and plump and had battered clothes. She smiled tiredly.

"Oh honey, Anna is 16, your only 7. Besides, she and her friend have been planning this for awhile now." her mother spoke softly to her, rocking her in her arms.

"But, I really wanted to go! Now I can never meet One Direction!" she wailed again. Her mother kissed her cheek and put her down.

My purse that held our tickets felt heavy on my shoulder. I glanced over at Lilia, to see that she also had been watching the little girl. We exchanged looks, and almost like we read each others minds, we walked over to the little girl and her mother. I took our tickets out of my purse and hid them behind my back.

"Hi sweetheart," Lilia said softly, kneeling down to the little girl, "what's your name?"

She looked at us with big eyes, "Leah" she replied, snifflening a bit more.

"Well Leah," Lilia said with a smile, "do you like One Direction?"

Leah smiled widely for a brief second, nodding her head. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw her mother giving us suspicious looks, trying to figure out what we were up to.

"Who's your favourtie?" I asked.

"Harry! And my older sister Anna likes Zayn!" she said, smiling.

I took the tickets out from behind my back, "Do you want to meet Harry?" I asked, showing her the tickets, "You can have them if you want."

Leah looked between us, then back to her mother, then back at us again. She then eyed the tickets, before snatching them. She skipped over to her mother and said, "Mommy, the girls over there gave me tickets to the signing! Can we go, pleeaaasseeeeeee?!"

Her mom nodding, before turning to us, "I'm not sure why you two did that, but thank you very much. It means a lot to Leah." She cracked a smile.

" Anytime, we don't mind at all.". I said with a gracious smile, "It's always nice to help someone out" I was a sucker for those stuff, the helping and the giving, realizing that some people don't have what others do. Even my favourite movie is "Pay It Forward".

Leah and her mother walked out if the hotel with the tickets. Lilia looked at me and sighed.

"So, Uhh, what do you wanna do now?" she asked, "now that our express passes for the signing are no longer with us." Lilia had a harder time with these things.

"Well, let's still go and see if we can meet them after. Maybe we could just stay there or something, since it would only be a few hours." I suggested. Lilia nodded, and we headed out.


When we got to the signing, we could easily see that this would take more than just "a few hours". The line was huge! The boys weren't anywhere to be found at the moment. We couldn't get in because we didn't have tickets, so we just sat on a bench a few yards away from the fans. We took in the surroundings around us and I spotted Leah and her mother next to a pretty girl with long blonde hair, who must be Anna, and her friend, who had straight mahogany hair.

"Pst!" I heard, and looked around. Nobody. I shrugged it off, before I heard it again. I looked at Lilia, who raised her hands in defeat, "it's not me, I swear!"

"Oh my god guys, really? We're over here!" said a sweet, girly voice. The sound was coming from a bundle of bushes on our left. I got up to investigate and headed over to the greens. I peered over the edge, feeling like a total idiot. My eyes met with another pair of warm brown eyes. I took a double take, my eyes wide, before backing up slowly. Danielle and Perrie rose out of the bushes, smiling.

"Took us forever to track you two down!" Danielle said, her eyes shining, "The boys sent us here when they saw you from the window.

I looked at the little building near the signing, and noticed a window. I looked more closely and saw the boys, even Louis, waving at us. Lilia and I waved back before turning to Danielle and Perrie.

"Well watcha waiting for? Eleanor's there too, it is where we usually hang out when the boys are signing. You up for it?" Danielle asked.

"Sure, why not?" Lilia replied, and we made our way to the clubhouse. I was exited to see them, even though I saw them last night. I looked Harry and Niall both in the eye. Both times I got butterflies.
