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...

27. Face the Game

Louis' POV

I watched as Julie's face turned a slightly paler colour as I pressed play on the newly posted Youtube video. "Her name is unknown to us...But One Direction obviously knows her." A picture of Julia, frozen standing on the stage played along with the caption. I saw Harry's grip on Julie's hand tighten in attempt to comfort her, but she didn't respond to him at all. She just stared emotionless at the video. "So...we decided to give her a name too or rather a title. From now on she will be known...as THE WORLD'S BIGGEST FAILURE!!!" The video of Julie dashing off the stage played on loop with the bolded words 'FAIL' printed in red on the screen each time. I could sense the tension in the room so I quickly shut the laptop.

"You ok love?" I asked as I put my hand on Julie's shoulder. I had considered not showing her the video, but the later she found out, the more hurt she would become. And I really didn't want to cause her anymore pain than she already had. Finally, she turned her head towards me and nodded. "I'm fine." She whispered though her eyes were once again filled with tears. I pulled her in for a hug and whispered in her ear. "I'm sorry. I just thought you should know now." "Thanks Lou. I'm fine." She repeated to me. "Umm...I'll let you two talk." I took the laptop and was about to leave when Julie grabbed my arm. "There's really nothing to talk about. I am truly am fine." She turned to Harry and took his hand in hers softly stroking his bruised knuckles. At least I assumed they were only bruised. Harry could do some pretty stupid things when he was upset.

Julie's POV

"I don't blame you for a single thing. So don't worry." I said quietly to Harry and gave him a meek smile. To be honest, I was horrified that there were people in the world that would say such mean things like deeming me 'THE WORLD'S BIGGEST FAILURE'. The video actually made my stage fright more serious if anything. But I didn't want Harry to feel any guiltier, so I tried to keep it all bottled inside of me. "I really am sorry Julie." "Don't be. I can look past it." The three of us walked out of the kitchen to find the rest of the boys chatting in the practice room. "Is she ok?" Niall bursted when he saw Louis enter since he was the first to go in.  "Why don't you just ask her?" Once I stepped into the room after Louis, all the boys stood up and approached me with arms open for a hug. "Wow, everyone sure likes hugs." I joked since I had probably gotten like ten hugs already in just one hour from the boys. "If you need anything at all, we're all here to help." Zayn said sympathetically. "Thanks a lot, but really, I'm okay guys." No one moved or said anything after my declaration. I guess they didn't believe me. "So...what can we do now?" I questioned them trying to change the subject. "Huh? Oh. We can't leave yet cause there's a massive wave of fans surrounding this place. So I guess we can play like a game or something if you want." Liam suggested. "Our fans can be a little crazy sometimes.." Niall added. "Ahem Niall." I shot him a playful look of sarcasm. "Oh sorry. Forgot you were a Directioner." I smiled at him for remembering that and continued to ask the boys. "What game?" "How 'bout....SPIN THE BOTTLE!!" Louis shouted. "Isn't that a little odd since we only have one girl...if you know what I mean."Harry winked. "NOTHING dirty guys. Understand?" I pointed to each of them but widened my eyes at Harry.  "Awwww!" He moaned pretending to be disappointed. I felt a lot better. Almost instantly, with all of the boys funny quips. *Bzz, Bzz* I flipped out my phone to see a text from Eleanor. I had given her my phone number when we were shopping at Forever 21 earlier.

To: JulieMarti39 From: ElleCalder:) Worried about you! Are you ok? Dani and Skylar are here too! Text back asap! Not leaving the stadium until we hear from you! xx 

I felt terrible that I hadn't informed any of them that I was fine. They probably thought I was going to commit suicide or something! I quickly sat on the lounge chair behind me and replied Eleanor's text.

To: ElleCalder From: JulieMarti39:) I'm so sorry I didn't tell any of you that I was fine! The boys really helped me from my 'down in the dumps mood'. We can't leave cause of the group of fans outside so we were going to play Spin the Bottle. Wanna join? :)

 Almost instantly, I got a text back.

To: JulieMarti39 From: ElleCalder:) So glad you're ok! I was so scared! :$And sure! We'll be right there! :)

I tucked away my phone and sat with the boys in a circle. "Elle, Dani, and Skylar are coming to join us. Is that ok?" "The more the merrier!" Liam quoted. "Thanks for the permission Daddy Direction." I giggled. In minutes, the three arrived at the door and joined us in our circle. Zayn grabbed a plastic water bottle from the table and placed it in the center of the circle on the floor. "Who wants to go first?" he asked. "Ooh! Me!" Louis shot his hand up in the air like a school student. He held onto the bottle and announced, "Who ever the bottle turns to has to piggyback me across the room!" The spinning bottle finally landed on Harry. "Oh you should be used to this Hazza! It's not the first time you carried Louis!" Liam said matter of factly. "Ok. Let's go boobear." Harry triumphantly walked around the room carrying Louis on his back who was instructing him where to go. "Left here, straight, left again, take a right over here. I DON'T CARE IF THERE'S A COUCH THERE! JUMP IT!" We all laughed as the two finally sat back down. "My turn!" Harry rubbed his chin to think of a question. "Whoever the bottle lands on has to...DO MY LAUNDRY FOR ME TONIGHT!" "Come on! That's not even fair!" Zayn moaned. Harry spun the bottle lightly and surprise, surprise it landed on Zayn. "Come on man!" "Yup um Zayn, remember seperate the darks and lights. Iron the dress shirts then hang them up too. TANKS!" "Oh don't you 'tanks' me, hope you like pink cause I'm mixing the reds with your whites." He mumbled trying to look mean but a smile escaped his lips. "OOH I'M SCARED! JULIE HOLD ME!" Harry said sarcastically. "The person the bottle lands on...JULIE HAS TO KISS! Umm...ON THE LIPS! Yeah Harry, getting revenge on you by getting your girl to kiss someone else!" "Come on man, I think that's going a little too far..." "NOPE!" All the boys said at the same time. I watched the bottle intently as it spun....and spun...and spun....until it finally stopped at...at...oh fuck.
