4. First Day on Tour

Niall's POV:

As the boys and I finished packing, Zoe was making us pancakes to eat before our long road trip to Birmingham. We all brought our luggage into the living room of the suite and sat at the table where Zoe was stacking the last pancake on the plate in the middle of the table with six plates surrounding it. The boys and I sat down leaving Zoe the open spot between Zayn and Louis. After finishing the first pancake, the boys dug into the rest of the pancakes and out of the corner of my eye, I saw Zoe smile for the second time since being here.

"These are really good Zoe!" Liam smiled and went back to his food. The other guys murmured in agreement.

"Did you make them from scratch." Louis looked at her instead of looking at his food.

"I did and I'm glad you boys like them." Zoe smiled back at Louis and stood up, threw away her plate and went to the bathroom.

"Well I can really see where she gets the cooking from Niall. Is food the main thing in your family?" Harry smirked at his comment.

"I don't know, but what I'm worried about right now is what Zoe will be able to do to help out, because knowing her, so will plead until she gets a job."

"Well, although it was playful, maybe she can help Lou with hair and makeup." Louis suggested.

"I guess we can ask."


Zoe's POV:

I could tell the boys were talking about me, they were quite loud. I put my toothbrush away and pulled out my Baby Lips and swiped it over my lips making them shine. I leaned against the counter and took a deep breath, I grabbed my purse and pushed the door open. The boys were standing by the door waiting for me. I sashayed over to them and grabbed my suitcase.

"Ready?" Zayn asked. I nodded and we walked out the door. As soon as we were out the doors of the hotel, we were mobbed by fans. The boys kept me to the middle so I wouldn't be hurt. We got to the tour bus and Lou lead me to the second bus.

"The boys are staying in the first bus, we will be in the second bus. You can go in and choose a bunk if you want." Lou smiled and walked over to where the boys were calling her.

I walked in and was astounded by how luxurious it was. I took a bottom bunk and set my purse in there two. I take out the picture of my dad and I, tears well up in my eyes and hug the picture close to my chest. Quickly wiping away my tears before anyone could see, I stood up and wandered around the bus.

"There you are. The boys talked to me and said you would be good with makeup and hair, then they should me what you did to them during the twitcam. Would you like to be my assistant?" Lou looked at me with pleading eyes. I couldn't help but smile.

"I'd love to."


*The Next Day*

The crew walked into the arena and I was surprised by how big it was. I get surprised a lot. After adjusting Jack's carrier on my arm, I walked with Lou toward the dressing rooms. We got settled in and started opening of the makeup cases.


"Would you like me to show you how I do the hair and makeup on the boys?" I nod my head and Lou goes to retrieve Louis. "Alright for Louis, I try to make his makeup as natural as possible, his skin is different depending if it's morning or night, I tend to use a lighter makeup in the mornings and on stage." We went through each of the boys hair and makeup requirements then we went into the arena. It was eight hours until the concert started and I was holding Jack on my hip as the stage crew was finishing setting up the arena. Harry came over to me and asked to hold Jack, I handed him carefully over to Harry, then sat in one of the chair is.

"So how's the first day on the job going?"

"Well it's great, but I wish I could stop hearing all this screaming for a minute." Harry laughed.

"There's no possible way we can stop the screaming." I laugh to, then Harry asked if I could take a picture of him and Jack.

"Yeah sure." I took the picture and Harry's phone back over to him. As soon as he tweeted picture, the screaming outside got louder. I frowned and he laughed again. "What did you tweet?"

"I said look at Niall's little cousin, isn't he cute? The girls can't resist us with little kids." I rolled my eyes and grabbed Jack again. We went backstage for the meet and greets to start coming and I stood in the dressing room reading The Last Song and rocking Jack's carrier back and forth. Lolling him asleep. Before I knew it, Paul came in and told me, that I was needed backstage with Lou so I could help in case of emergency.

"What about Jack?"

"I can have someone look after him, now go." I walk past Paul and as soon as I got backstage, the screaming was very loud. 5SOS was already on stage and the boys were waiting, well Niall, Liam, and Louis were. Zayn was filming 5SOS and Harry was in the bathroom. Finally it was time for the boys to go on. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. They ran onstage and the screaming got to loudest point.
