16. The Secret

 

Evelyn clapped her hands to the beat of What Makes You Beautiful, as One Direction went around the Olympic track on their float. She exchanged happy smiles with Danielle and Eleanor, who were in the same disposition. As the song ended, Evelyn excused herself to go to the restroom, and rushed off. Quickly she was stopped by Simon.

 

            “Hello Evelyn,” Simon said, his eyes warily darting around the space as sound engineers rushed around like maniacs to fulfill their duties. “How are you?”

 

            “I’m fine, thank you,” Evelyn said, uneasily. There was something about Simon’s tone of voice that scared her. Something wasn’t right. “Is there something wrong?”

 

            “Yes,” Simon paused, looking for the right words, “I need you to break up with Niall.” The world stopped, freezing in mid motion. Break up with Niall? The sweetest, kindest person that she had ever known?

 

            “Sorry,” Evelyn began, laughing as if it were a joke. “But no.” It wasn’t a joke. Simon’s face remained dull.

 

            “I’m afraid Niall forgot his contract,” Simon said casually, as he pulled a piece of paper out from under his clip board. He tapped the third paragraph and began to read. “Niall Horan shall not date for the first three years of his contract in hopes of instilling the singularity of this particular member. If he so chooses to forfeit this agreement, he shall be forced to leave the band… permanently. “ Evelyn stepped back, in utter shock. Had Niall known about this?

 

            “What if I refuse?” Evelyn said breathlessly, tears pricking up in her eyes. Simon smiled and Evelyn instantly felt pain. He smiled.  That conniving monster.

 

            “Then Niall will mysteriously disappear from One Direction,” Simon replied flatly, tucking the contract under the other papers. “I have the power to make sure nobody knows he exists. It will be as if he never lived to see the light of show biz.”

 

            Evelyn was speechless. She could either date Niall… or ruin his dream. Niall had told her how much One Direction meant to him. It was his new life. He never thought of doing anything else in the world. If he quit One Direction… then he would be crushed.

 

            “Alright,” Evelyn whispered, choking back the persistent tears. “I’ll do it.” She turned and began to walk away.

 

            “And Evelyn,” Simon added. She turned back to him, tears already beginning to fall. “You cannot tell him what I said. It will be our little secret.”
