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...

25. Face the Pain

Harry's POV

The boys helped me pull Julie on the stage for her to perform. "You're going to be great." I whispered to her as I lead her to center stage. I thought it would be great to have the world acknowledge her incredible voice! But before I could even ask her what song she was going to sing so the band could play it, she ran off the stage lightning speed with tears in her eyes. I had absolutely no idea what just happened. Why did she run off like that? I racked my brain of any piece of information she told me that could explain her sudden behaviour. Nothing. I knew I had done something seriously wrong. I stood there stiff as a board, watching helplessly as the stage door crashed closed. "So...Who wants to hear another song?" Louis asked the audience. The crowd cheered instantly. "Any suggestions?" Zayn walked over to the edge of the stage and knelt down giving his microphone to one of the girls in the front row. "ANOTHER WORLD!" she screamed. My mind flashed back to when I heard Julie singing 'Another World' that morning. My heart raced and ached. I had really messed up. My attention turned to Skylar who looked at me with wide eyes and pointed to the stage door, signaling me to check up on Julie. I shook my head. I couldn't bear seeing Julie cry, let alone being the one who made her; someone I loved. If she could forgive me, I still wouldn't forgive myself.

I heard Skylar give out a huff of annoyance with my answer and Niall heard it too. As if on cue, he lept off the stage and through the door to check on Julie. I had just given the opportunity of comforting Julie to someone else. Making matters worse, it was Niall. If he made a good impression on her, I could kiss her goodbye because she would be his. I started to walk over to the side door to get some fresh air and re-think what just happened, but a hand grabbed my arm. "Louis, let me go." I irritatingly mumbled. "Mate, we need you for the song." Reluctantly, I stood back at my place and the song started. I knew we weren't allowed to, and Paul would probably lecture me about being disrespectful later but whatever. I looked at my watch and tapped my foot impatiently. Fifteen more minutes. "I'll lift you up, I'll never stop. You know I'll take you to another world...." By the time only five minutes were left, the song was done. Usually we would only leave when time was completely up, but Louis understood me. "Well, that's all for tonight! Thank you all for coming!" We all said our good byes and went back stage. 

"You're asking her what happened." Louis pulled me to the dressing room door where I heard soft guitar playing. "No thanks." I replied coldly as I forcefully shook Louis' arm off of me. I trudged out the back door and let it slam behind me. Though it was still raining, I sat on the soaking wet steps and stared emotionless, at the sky. "You know Niall did the same thing this morning on the front steps." Liam stood on the step behind me and continued. "I think it was about Julie too. Both of you like her. Are you going to give up now when you're so much more ahead?" He paused for an answer. But hearing none, he simply stated, "Just think about it." As I heard footsteps to the door, and the familiar thud, I got up and stood at the metal railing. "IDIOT!" I shouted punching the rail with my bare fists. Without even thinking twice, I screamed as loud as I could and started kicking the rail too. "Harry, Harry, HARRY DUDE STOP!" Zayn held my arms behind my back and pulled me away from the rail. I kicked it a few more times before I gave in to his grasp. "She wouldn't want to see you like this would she?!" "Who cares." I grunted and looked away. "You are coming with me right now." "NO!" I yelled and tried to pull away. "Liam, Louis!" Zayn shouted as he opened the door. In the matter of seconds, they ran out and helped him strangle me backstage. 

"You need some time alone I know, but violence is not the answer!" The boys pushed me into the kitchen and locked the door. I sat on the couch in the kitchen and punched the seat beside me. Yeah I was pissed too now. Not with the boys, with myself. I looked around the room and I set my gaze on a shiny object. A knife.

*Author's note-

Hey readers!! So as I mentioned before in my comment, school actually began today. I wasn't able to write 3 chapters before school started...(i'm so sorry :'( busier than I expected!) However I'll write 1 chapter each day starting from today until Thursday (Canada time) :D! After these three chapters, I can't confirm when I'll be able to write more...But I'll try my best to publish as many as possible even if I have to use the old school computers :P in my spare periods or at lunch. (yes i'll give up half of my lunch time or more to publish more :') )Even if I have exams later in the year, I promise to publish at least one chapter a month (Hope you all understand that I have to study for high school exams! :) ) Love u all! And thanks very much! =) <3

Oh P.S- Who do you want to see Julie with? Team Harry or Team Niall? Your answers will determine her fate! :D So every comment counts! Thank you again <3
