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...

19. Face the Story Behind the Story

Skylar's POV

"Don't you remember why you performed so terribly?" I asked Julia. "N..N..No" she stammered in reply. "Should I tell you?" "Please do." I took in a breath and exhaled rapidly. "It was the day before your singing competition with Bethany. Of course you didn't know that. Nobody did. But that day was also another memorable one. It was the day, five months ago that your parents got seperated. You called me desperately that night telling me that some of the students in your class were bullying you for being from a single parent household. For some reason, you were the only one whose parents were seperated. I told you that they were just immature as you were in a grade that children should just accept these facts... But you said they were bullying you physically too so you just wanted to run away. All you kept doing was screaming and yelling on the phone, as a result, you lost your voice. Your mom took you to the doctor because you said your throat hurt immensley too. It turned out you had a throat infection. By the next morning, you got most of your voice back, but the doctor told you that you weren't supposed to talk or sing or anything like that, for the rest of the week. Otherwise, your throat would swell up and your voice would become hoarse. Nevertheless, you caved into peer pressure and sang. No one sings when they have a throat infection Julie! So that's how your horrible situation came to life." Julie sat there speechless for what seemed like the longest time, until she let out a meek laugh. "How did you remember all this?" "Well it was the day before my exam. And because I was talking to you, I didn't study much and almost had to take the course over again due to the fact that I nearly FAILED!" I said trying to make her laugh.

"So technically I shouldn't have stage fright. It was all a psycological thing?" "Yup. So sing already! You haven't sang in front of anyone for years! You only sing in the shower for crying out loud!" Julie pondered for a while. "Ok." "Here sing along-" I plucked the strings on the guitar and started playing 'Another World' by One Direction. In the matter of seconds Julie started singing with the voice of confidence I hadn't heard in years. "It's not me, it's not you there's a reason. I'm just trying to read the signals I'm receivin'. It's like a stone on fire can you feel it? I dunno about you girl but I believe it. Words will be just words, 'till you bring them to life. I'll lift you up, I'll never stop, you know I'll take you to another world. I'll build you up, I'll never stop, you know I'll take you to another world. Everyday, in everyway woah. I'll lift you up I'll never stop, you know I'll take you to another world-" 

*Ding Dong*  At the exact same time, Julie and I stopped what we were doing and looked at the clock. 3:30 on the dot. Right on time Harry.
