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...


18. Facing Memory

Julia's POV

"Hey Sky!!!" All the boys piled at the door to see why I screamed. "Oh scream of joy. Not fright. Got ya." Niall said as he backed up, giving us some space. "OMG! You weren't lying! And I see you had fun with silly string too..." She spoke in a whisper trying not to alert the whole neighbourhood of their presence. "This is my cousin Skylar! She's coming with me to the concert and rehearsal tonight." The boys waved polietly to her. "Well, I bet you already know us, but I'll just introduce us again. This is Wayne Wazik, Barry, Kyle or Kitchen Tile or Nail File; I'll let you choose which one you like better, this is Ian, and i'm Hewie or Chop suey." All the boys started chuckling under their breath. Even I couldn't help but give out a little smirk as I remembered them giving each other those names in a Sugarscape interview a while back. (If you haven't seen the interview, here's the link... it's REALLY funny:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvUIOerpz0k ) I also couldn't help but notice that Zayn and Skylar were both staring frozen eyed at each other. It was obvious that they were both interested in each other...after all Zayn had every reason to fall for my cousin, and vice versa too! Skylar had mid-length straight honey golden hair, and soft blue eyes that matched her skirt and ballerina flats perfectly. She really did look like she had just stepped out of a modeling magazine. And Zayn was just, well......perfect. Enough said.

We all sat in the silly string filled living room and talked for a short while until Paul arrived to pick up the guys. "Thank you Julia for giving these boys a place to stay, and on the same note, i'm sorry for whatever trouble they caused." Paul said eyeing the five, but Harry in particular. "Come on Paul! You know us better than that! We are complete angels." Harry retorted elbowing him in the stomach lightly. "Oh and Julia. I am aware of you and your friend joining us for rehearsals and the concert tonight." I nodded to him as the rest of the boys stepped in front of us to leave. "A massive thank you to you Julie for all you have done for us! And we will be back to watch the Toy Story boxed set, mark my words!" said Liam stretching his arms out for a hug. I hugged them all and added, "The door is always open for you! So come by anytime!"

Skylar's POV

Julia closed the door after the guys left and helped me pull my bags into her room. As we trudged up the stairs I decided to break the awkward silence. "So...you choose who you like more yet?" "I really don't want to talk about it." "Hello? I'm your best friend! If anything's wrong you can trust me!" "Well, it's just that....I don't know!" she finally whined, puffing out a breath of air and seating herself on the top step of the staircase. I sat down next to her placing my bags there as well. "I might have just told Harry that I like him...but I sort of have feelings for Niall too! I don't mean to be a player or anything it's just- confusing." Julie rubbed the temples of her head. I could tell that this topic was making her tense and a bit frustrated. "How 'bout we forget this topic for now. We have to get ready before Harry comes!" Julie stared at the ground for a while before reluctantly following me to her room.

After about a two hour clothing hunt from both of our closets, we managed to find an outfit beyond compare for the two of us. I wore a glimmering red tank top that said 'Keep Calm and Love One Direction', with a pair of blue denim shorts and a pair of red converse. Julie went with a one sleeved, neon purple tank top with silk flowers along the one strap, a pair of white short shorts, and a pair of black converse from my luggage. To top off my look, I straightened my hair and applied a smokey eye and lip gloss. Since we had spare time, I decided to help Julie curl her hair and put it up into a messy but stylish ponytail. I took my purse and headed downstairs to wait for Julie to finish up her look. Seconds later, she came down with mascara, eyeliner and lip gloss! "Ooooh! You never wear so much makeup, you're trying to impress..." I teased Julie as she took her iPod out of her purse. "It's 3:00, Harry will be here soon. But we can play a game or something if you want in the mean time." "Changing the topic huh? Well you just confirmed that I was right! But yeah let's....oh! I know! I'll play the guitar and you sing! Like we used to when we were little!" Julie froze as I stood up and unhooked the guitar from the music rack on the wall. "Um, no. I'll play and you sing." she said reaching to grasp the guitar out of my hands. "Julie you have a beautiful voice! And I'm not the only one who thinks so. Where are all those awards you won from the country wide singing competitions?" Julie stared blankly at the bare white wall behind me.

Julia's POV

"I have no idea what you're talking about." I replied rather coldly. "Don't let that one incident bother you Julie! It was one time that happened and there was a reason too! You won awards for your singing talent like five times!" "Sky you know I have stage fright-" "Don't even start with the stage fright shit." she blocked. "Julie you don't really have stage fright!" Now was when I first realized it. Her words pierced me like swords. She was right. I had won singing competitions before, which meant I didn't have stage fright back then. I could stand on a stage and sing any day. How did I perform so badly that one time? How did it happen?
