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...

23. Facing Flashback

Julia's POV

Of course I had read the articles and news on Harry before. I was a directioner myself to begin with. But I tried to keep that behind me when I agreed to liking Harry. I tried to focus on his positive characteristics instead, but Niall just reminded me of.... oh forget it. I sighed out loud. I shouldn't have snapped at Niall, I would have to apologize later though. Right now, we had to get in our seats before the audience of screaming girls were let in.

I walked towards the auditorium and put my hand on the door when someone tapped me on the shoulder. "Julia, Harry wants to talk to you before the show begins but he's getting his hair done with the rest of the boys backstage. So you're going to have to go to him." said Paul looking through the papers on his clipboard. "Thanks Paul. Which door is it?" "First door on your left." he announced making his way to the entrance where the screaming girls could be heard. I looked at my watch, 30 mins left.

I knocked on the door before entering just in case. "Hello?" I asked poking my head through the gap. "Julie!" said Harry reaching his arms out for a hug. He was sitting on a chair in front of hair styling table and mirror. So were the rest of the boys. I walked up to him to give him a hug, but as soon as he put his arms around me, he lifted me up on his lap and started spraying my hair with hair spray. "Ahhh! Harry!" I took another bottle of hair spray off Louis' table and sprayed his hair. Before long, he surrendered. Mostly because his hair was now permanently sticking up in all directions. Along with the other boys, I tried to stifle my laughter. "Guys we need you to standby the stage for your entry." Paul's voice came from outside the door, but quickly he walked away to let the girls into the auditorium. "We have to go now Harry, whether you like it or not." Zayn said messing his hair up even more. "I'll see you later babe. And I will get you back for this. Maybe not today, but soon." Harry winked and kissed me on the lips before leaving after the boys. He rapidly did one of his famous 'hair flips' to try and get his hair to look better. I smiled and gave the guys each a high five as they left out the door. When I got to Niall, he high-fived me and I felt something stick to my hand. I looked to see a sticky note on my palm. "Can I please talk to you? I'm sorry :$ Be here backstage after the concert? Thanks -Nialler" I stuffed the note in my pocket and went to meet Eleanor and Skylar in the audience.

"There you are! We were looking for you!" exclaimed Skylar. "Sorry, I was backstage. Is Danielle here yet?" "Hi! Sorry i'm late. It is impossible to get through the crowd!" Just as I said her name, she appeared. "Danielle, this is Julie and Skylar. Julie is Harry's girlfriend and Skylar is her best friend." I was going to protest about the whole girlfriend thing, but Eleanor put up her finger in front of me and said, "Uh huh. You can deny it, but you haven't taken off the bracelet. You've already accepted the fact." she winked at me and smiled slightly. Facts were facts, she was right. "Well then, welcome to the club." Danielle joked. I turned to whisper in Skylar's ear. "You're about to join too if i'm right." "Shut up." she hissed though trying not to laugh. I looked around, the whole auditorium, arena whatever you wanted to call it, was completely packed with screaming girls and actually; a few guys too. The lights dimmed and the screaming got even louder. To make things worse, I got hit with a 'I LOVE YOU NIALL' sign on the head. The clip of One Direction on the beach and all played on the screen. 'Arriving in 3,2,1' Then a tide splashed on the screen. The boys ran out to the stage and started singing 'Na,Na,Na' instantly. And throughout the whole song, Harry was frantically trying to fix his hair with his hair flips. A roar of excitement took over the audience as Liam shouted out "HELLO TORONTO!". But the only thing I actually heard was the girl behind me screaming "HE'S SO HOT!!!! I COULD JUST RAPE HIM!!!". I wasn't the only one who heard that. "You, yes girl in the yellow. Calm down. Ok there you go." She got even more hyped up when Louis noticed and addressed her like that so she started screaming hysterically with her friends even louder than before. "For all you out there. I am sorry about my hair. It was an incident involving hairspray, and two people." Harry pointed at Zayn and I with his microphone. Zayn gave me a thumbs up and walked over to the crowd to give me a high five. Song after song, I enjoyed the concert even more. Danielle, Eleanor, Skylar and I ended up screaming just as loud as the other girls by the last song.

The boys sang 'I Want' as their last song and everyone in the audience sang along. Harry mouthed something to me. But all I understood was "I'm mowing tucan you pup on age.". "What?" I mouthed back to him. He pointed his finger up telling me to wait because he had to sing. I shrugged to Skylar who looked just as puzzled as I did.

At the end of the song, Harry took his microphone and made an announcement. "Now before we leave, I thought I'd call out someone in the audience who I know is an amazing singer." He walked over to me and bent down. "I said 'I am going to call you up on stage'." He reached out his hand to pull me on stage but I just looked blankly at him. "Go Julie!" said Danielle and Eleanor encouragingly. However only Skylar understood me. "Umm I don't think that's a good idea." her voice rose louder so Harry could hear her. Due to the screaming girls, of course he didn't. The other boys came too and finally pulled me on stage. It must have been hard because I was feeling limp and I didn't use any effort to push myself up. 

I stood on the stage and snapped out of my trance. "I don't have stage fright." I said to myself hoping that if I repeated it, it would come true. "Everyone, this is Julia and I happen to know first hand, that she is a great singer." Harry handed me the microphone and led me to the centre of the stage. I looked into the audience. The bright white lights on me. The silence of everyone waiting for me to sing. The crowd of people all staring at me. It was all too familiar. I faced a familiar Flashback.
