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...


21. Facing Eleanor Calder

Julie's POV

I ran my finger over the deep engraving, then looked up at Harry. I made up my mind. "Thanks Harry, I really love it. Can you help me put it on?" He unhooked the golden clasp and secured it on my wrist. "Perfect." he whispered. I turned to face him and pecked him on the lips. As I started to lean back, he gently held the back of my neck pulling me back in for another kiss. I looked into his green eyes which had turned a somewhat darker shade by then. He gripped my neck a little tighter as I slowly closed my eyes and our lips touched. I was about to reach for his hand, when the back door flung open. "Hi guys. Sorry I took so lon- OH SNAP!" Harry and I quickly resumed our positions. "Sorry. I couldn't see through the tinted windows...should I leave or-" "Stay. You should stay, and we should get going now or we'll be late." Harry started the car and for the first ten minutes, all that was in the air was awkwardness. I turned on the radio to Kiss 92.5 and what a coincidence...'What Makes You Beautiful' was playing. Sky tapped me on the shoulder and looked at me with wide eyes of excitement. We started singing along at the top of our lungs while Harry just chuckled and kept his eyes on the road. As the song ended, Harry announced that we had arrived.

We piled in through the back door where we were greeted by Louis. "You guys are late! But, I see there was a good reason..." he pointed at my bracelet and nudged Harry. "Come on, we're waiting for you to start rehearsals." Louis led us to the front row seats, then took Harry to meet up with the rest of the guys. I took my seat next to Sky and another girl I had never seen before...at least I thought I hadn't. "Hi.What's your name?" she asked sweetly waving to me. She had long, wavy dark-brown hair, and brown eyes. To be honest, she was SUPER pretty and I'm sure that many girls including me, wanted to look like her. It took me a while to realize, but I finally put two and two together. It was Eleanor Calder! "Hi! I'm Julia, but most people call me Julie. And this is my cousin and best friend Skylar." "Well I love your top Julie! Are you going to be here for the concert tonight?" I thanked her for the compliment, then told her that we would both be there for the concert. She smiled and told us that Danielle would be arriving for the concert too. "So, how did you meet the boys?" Eleanor rested her head in her hands on the arm rest to face me. "It was kind of an unusual meeting..." I explained how I met them leaving out the beginning part about Bethany and all. I trusted her, I just didn't think she needed all that detail. "I know for sure that one of the boys like you." She said with a smirk. "Oh yeah? Which one?" "I'm pretty sure his name starts with a 'N' and ends with a 'iall'." That was not what I wanted to hear. "Umm...are you sure?" Stupid question I know. "Ever since I got here this afternoon, you're all that he's talked about!" she laughed until she spotted my bracelet. "That is so pretty!" I lifted my wrist. "This must have cost a lot! Who got you thi- oh Harry did!" Eleanor admired the engraving on the cat charm. "So who do you like more? Harry or Niall?" I recognized her question to be the same one Skylar had asked me earlier that day. "I-" "Hello Toronto!" We all looked on stage to see the five boys on stage but still in their casual attire.

They ran through the list of songs on their 'Up All Night' Album, and Use Somebody by the Kings of Leon. It was actually really sweet how during many of the songs such as 'Gotta Be You', Louis winked at Eleanor. Harry must have noticed that I liked Louis' gesture towards Eleanor, because when 'Everything About You' came around, he pointed at me and all the boys were aware of it. I grinned back to him and caught Niall giving me a cold stare in the corner of my eye. I tried to smile at him, but he just stared blankly at me before looking away. What was his problem? For the rest of the rehearsal, I refused to look at him at all even though I did catch his eyes glancing at me. When the rehearsals were over, the boys came down to greet us. "You guys were amazing!" Skylar shouted. "No need to yell love, we can hear you just fine." Zayn smiled as he put his arm around her. I could see her trying to hide her blush. "And how did you think we were?" Harry asked me as he swallowed me in a hug. "I think Skylar's words go for the both of us. You guys were amazing." I kissed him on the cheek and I saw Niall shift his gaze somewhere else. "We have to check out the Twitter questions for tonight. But we'll see you guys later alright?" said Liam. "Great!" I replied.

"Hey, wanna go shopping for a while?" Eleanor questioned standing up. I nodded eagerly and turned to Skylar. "I'm sorry I can't come! But I'll be back in a bit. I have to run a few errands for my mom around here. Grocery shopping and all. I didn't think the rehearsals would take so long! Sorry." "That's fine. See you at the concert tonight! Oh do you need a ride?" Eleanor asked taking out her keys. "Oh that's ok. I just need to go to stores around here. Bye!" said Skylar as she walked out. "So where do you want to go first?" "FOREVER 21?" We both squealed at the same time. I could tell that we were going to become great friends.

We walked to Starbucks first to get a Ice Capp for both of us, then we went to Forever 21. We tried on heaps of clothes, many which we just tried on to make each other laugh. But the sales rep didn't seem to mind knowing who Eleanor was. I ended up choosing a ocean blue T-shirt that had a cute panda bear on it, and a bunch of different accessories like bracelets and headbands of all colours. Even Eleanor bought the same t-shirt as me. "We can wear this together if we ever have a sort of 'sleep-over' party or something!" We brought our stuff to the cashier counter with no line-up. The girl looked about 16 and obviously really bored. "Hi. Did anyone help you today?- OMG You're...You're Eleanor Calder!" She screamed. "Haha. Yes and we need to be getting somewhere so can you check out this stuff?" "Of course! OMG. I love One Direction! And I love you! And- who are you?" The girl pointed at me with a disgusted look on her face.
