* Allison's POV
My breath caught in my throat as she slowly turned around. I felt tears pouring down my cheeks and when she was fully facing me, I saw her puffy eyes and rosy cheeks. I sort of hovered my hand in front of me and she clasped onto to it.
"Char?" I said it as more of a question than a statement.
She nodded her head up and down so fast she probably had whiplash. I used my free hand to pinch myself on my arm. This was too good to be true, yet it was real.
I let out out a choke/sob and fell into her arms. We clung on for dear life and wouldn't let go. I cried and cried until I couldn't cry anymore, and then I cried some more. When I was all cried out, I released her and held her shoulders at arms length.
I noticed that everyone had begun to move inside and she looked dissapointed to leave me. I noticed Piper for the first time and let out a little yelp, enveloping her into a hug. She was crying too.
I let Piper go and grabbed her and Char's hand, leading them towards the back.
"Where are we going?" Piper asked incredulous.
"I'm getting you guys front row tickets," I exclaimed proudly.
"But how?" Piper asked amazed.
I stopped short and they both ran into me. I new that Char new I was dating Liam, but I didn't know Piper didn't.
"I'm, you know, sort of dating Liam," I say and pull them along.
Piper went into full fangirl mode and started jumping up and down making wierd noises mixed between screaming and hyperventilating.
I led them through the back entrance and down a long corridor. It was too late to meet the boys, but they can meet them after the concert. They were in for a treat. I dragged them behind me to backstage.
"What are you doing here?" Talia scowled at us.
"None of your buiseness," I retorted and continued to pull them down a flight of stairs and onto the floor in front of the stage.
The fans had to be behind these metal barriers for safety reasons so I had security open up a gate for us and help Char and Piper squeeze to the front. I walked back to them and grabbed Char's hand. I gave her a watery smile and went in for a hug. We stayed smushed together for a good five minutes before we were interupted.
"Alli, Liam wants you," A tall, beefy guy with a thick mustache wearing the neon yellow security vest said.
I nodded and gave an "I'm so sorry" look to Char. Pipe was wonderstruck that Liam Payne of One Direction wanted me.
"Stay here after the show, I'll come and get you," I waved and ran off.
Up the flight of stairs, through backstage, down another long hallway, all the way to their dressing room. I knocked a few times on the mahogony door with a plastic star that had One Direction scrawled on it in sharpie. I heard scuffling and a muffled, who is it.
"Alli," I chirped.
I heard a lock sliding and seconds later I was face to face with One Direction's Niall Horan. I gave my sweetest smile and slipped past him.
I skipped over to Liam, who was sitting on a tattered old couch, and sat on his lap.
"Where did you go, love?" he asked nonchalantly.
"Long story," I rolled my eyes and bit my lip to stop from grinning, "I'll tell you after the concert."
He nodded as Paul knocked and entered the small room.
"Ten minutes, let's go backstage. Alli you can stand backstage if you want."
I nodded eagerly and hopped up. We all walked backstage together and I left them to do their vocal warm-ups. Soon, they were handed mics and told 30 seconds. Liam gave me one last kiss before he ran after the others, onto the stage.
I slipped past all the equipment and crew to peek around the curtain. Char and Piper were screaming from the front row. Char caught my eye and I winked at her. I had gotten my best friend back.
