Face the Music

Julia is your typical sixteen year old girl. She lives with her mother and her little sister Marty, she has her insecurities, she has her boy issues, and oh yeah, her love for the British/Irish boy-band One Direction. When her seventeenth birthday arrives, everything seems perfect....until it all fell apart piece by piece. But to every rainy day there is always a rainbow, what will happen when she unexpectedly 'falls hard' for not one, but two of the boys in One Direction? And what would happen if they both like her back? Would rivalry break everyone apart? Or will the fandom get to them first? Just as life is, every situation has two faces. One is an amazing benefit, and the other could lead to sacrifice...

Liam's POV

I was actually pretty proud of Julie. It took almost no time for her to take my advice....well her own advice really, and move on. "Good for you then." I said as I patted her back. "Dude, you have no idea what just happened." Zayn snapped placing his hand on his forehead. He looked rather stressed, while Julie looked....happy? I was puzzled why though. "Julie can I just tell him?" Zayn asked motioning towards me. She merely shrugged and strolled off to knock on Niall's door a few rooms down, permitting Zayn to tell me everything.

Niall's POV

I opened the door after a single knock to a very chipper looking Julie. "Well someone suddenly looks happy." I laughed running my fingers through my hair. It was pretty messy since I had literally just, woken up from a nap. "I just came by to say, yes." "Yes?" I asked confusedly, "To what? I don't think I asked a question..." "You did...well almost did. If I am not mistaken, there was a question that you have tried to ask me many times since the first day all of us spent time at my house; but you never could because of Harry." "Huh?...Oh..." My brain usually lagged after naps so I was pretty confused when Julie said that, but I eventually caught on. I was pretty sure she was referring to the many times I had tried to ask her out...

I leaned casually on the doorframe. "I don't know. I think those were one time only offers." I played on. She shot me a sarcastic glance and crossed her arms on her chest, but soon shrugged and was about to turn around. "Fine then. I'll just go and date someone else...huh how 'bout Liam?" I knew she was just kidding but I couldn't help but take advantage of the situation. "Always knew you were a slut." I joked. "And I always knew you were a perv. 'cause the first place I remember you looked when we met, were not my eyes." "And you would know how? You were unconcious the first time I met you." "Now who's fault was that? You guys hit me with a door!" I couldn't help but let out a full-fledged laugh now.

"You can put up quite the fight." "As can you." She added with a part triumphant smile. "This should be an interesting relationship." I smiled as I placed one hand on her waist and pulled her towards me using the other to prop me up from the door frame. "Uh excuse me? I don't remember anyone asking me out. So what relationship?" Wow. This girl, she could seriously be pretty sassy and confident, kinda like Louis to be honest. But at the same time she had a mix of sweetness in herself too, which is what really made me fall in love with her in the first place.  

I pulled her into my room and closed the door. "Julianne Hayley Martise, will you please go out with me?" I said in my announcer voice bending down on one knee and pretending to be holding out a ring. "Yes." She said simply and smiled. For a second it was almost like I had that little bicker with someone else. It seemed almost impossible looking at her now, eyes full of innocence that she could have been so fiesty before. I hugged her tightly and to her surprise, pinned her down on my bed. She started giggling as I lightly kissed her cheek then down to her neck. "Are we really doing this now? We literally just started dating." She whispered hoping that the boys couldn't hear from outside. "Fine. Later?" Julie merely laughed as she sat up and kissed me on the lips lightly, just teasing me. As she was about to open the door, I wrapped my arms around her waist from behind.

"Just a question, NOT that I don't love this! But, why the sudden change of attitude?" I asked. I was still a little bit skeptical about that. She had made it perfectly clear this morning that she wasn't over Harry so she didn't want a boyfriend yet. "Let's just say that if everyone's moving on already, why shouldn't I?" "Umm...ok..." Her answer really didn't clear anything up. She sighed then turned to look at me still holding my hands in hers. "I needed to move on, I was holding myself back to a person who clearly didn't turn out to miss me as much as I thought. Anyways, I now realize how much happier I am with him off my mind." "Alright. But just saying on a seperate note, now that you're mine; I have no intention on letting you go." "I have no intention on leaving."

Julia's POV

I was sitting on Niall's lap on the sofa in his room watching the football match on TV as there was really nothing else on. He was gladly surprised when he found out that I knew as much about all the players on various teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United, and especially Derby County as he did. "I can honestly say I never thought you would know this much about sports." He commented grasping my hand in his tightly. "Trust me, you don't know a lot about me." What I meant was that he didn't know that I was also pretty ok at playing soccer and cooking etc. but I couldn't help but remember the texts. Niall didn't know that I was getting threats, so that was another thing to add to the list of 'secrets' if you will. I hated keeping things away from those I loved, but the girl made it clear that I couldn't tell anybody or else they would get hurt. I was already bending the rule by telling Zayn everything, which is why I was now a little bit more overprotective with him because I didn't want him to get hurt because of me.

We watched the game for around five minutes more before I got up and decided to get a drink of water from the kitchen letting Niall become his usual crazy self in cheering for Derby County. As soon as I began pouring myself a glass of water, I felt my pocket vibrate. I took out my cell phone immediately, and I felt myself get dizzer after reading the title.

Zayn's POV

"Harry's apparently dating someone else already." I explained to Liam. I told him everything...except about the texts. They weren't really mine to tell. If Julie wanted to, she would tell him later. But I could see that Liam was shocked just hearing about Harry's actions. "Harry's a flirt, but this was a whole new level of low! How could he just abandon Julie like that?" He asked a little annoyed. "But Liam, I have a weird feeli-"


A loud shattering sound of glass rang through the kitchen diverting our attention. Liam and I  rushed to see what had happened at the same time that Niall walked out of his room. "What was that?" He asked looking around, nevertheless I pulled him with us to see what had occured. "Julie are you alright?" I called hoping to hear an answer. Nothing. When we entered the kitchen, we saw a broken glass cup on the floor, in a bed of water. "Are you ok?" Niall asked with concern in his eyes as he carefully walked to her, making sure not to step on a shard. Julie didn't say a word, she didn't even look at him. She just glared at me with empty eyes holding her phone out towards me. 

I swiftly took the phone from her hand and looked at the screen. She hadn't opened the text yet, there was just one unread message in her inbox with the subject line filled as: I FOUND HIM... 

I looked at Julie for permission to open the text first, she nodded as if she understood.

 To: JulieMarti39 From: Unknown;) DO WHAT THIS TEXT SAYS...or harrys going to get whats coming to him. he was easy to find really.....i have 24/7 watch on him. dont make me do something you're going to regret.....

I continued to read the full text message a little scared....that was, until I read what the girl wanted Julie to do. Then I just reached a new level of emotions that I couldn't describe.  

"Julie, it's not....that bad. Well one of them at least." I muttered the last part. "Just rate it on a scale from one to ten. Ten being the worst possible thing she could ask me to do; what is its rating?" "Umm...actually she wants you to do two things..."

Julia's POV

Two things? Wasn't one bad enough?! I could only imagine the horrible things this girl would make me do. Was she going to make me hurt someone? Prank a celebrity now that she knew I was close with the boys? Or worse- "Er...We'll leave you guys." Liam commented pulling a reluctant Niall out of the kitchen behind him. Niall truly did look concerned about me, especially because he didn't know what was going on. Neither of them did, and I should have told them about the incident. But I didn't know how to start....

 "Why don't you see for yourself." Zayn passed my phone to me interrupting my chain of thought. I shook my head and bit my lip, I was too nervous. "Zayn, please I need to be prepared emotionally, or else I will be physically sick when I read it."

"Alright, but I really can't rate this one for you. Well, the first thing she wants you to do...to me, its like a one...or zero even. But to you..." "She wants me to sing doesn't she." I asked gasping a little. "Yeah...at our next concert." The only thought running in my head at that time was how in the world did she know that I had stage fright? Was it just a wild guess? Oh. Maybe she saw the YouTube video...but how would she know it was me? There were like a million Julias in the world!

"I can't do it. And if I don't do it, she'll never know right?" "Sadly...she said in her text that she's going to get someone to attend the concert so she would know if you sang or not. And if you don't sing, well she said that she was already working on wake-up call number two." "Isn't this all already enough of a second wake-up call for me? My life is over." I grunted into my hands. What could I do now? But wait...Zayn said she wanted me to do two things. He only mentioned one...

"Wait so what's the second thing?" As if a chained reaction to my question, he sighed. Not a happy, or even a scared sigh. But more of a confused, depressed, 'don't know what to do' kind of sigh. "Zayn?" I trailed my voice. If the task even made him so down in the dumps, it must have been serious. He looked around to make sure that no one was listening before he spoke up, quietly. "She wants...us to date."

I stumbled back slightly, using only the kitchen island to keep me standing. I could find so many problems connected to that one task. So many friendships, and relationships could be broken. But that's what the girl wanted to happen. She wanted to make the world which didn't know what was going on, to think that I was some real slut that used the guys for fame then split them up. Zayn passed me my phone back to read the text for myself. I had hoped that he had misinterpreted or read something wrong. But there it all was. Exactly as he had said it, not a single bit missing.
