Eyes Open

Tahlia Kay, a seemingly average 17 year old girl, reads through a magazine when her eyes skim over an add:
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE IN THE 1D FANGIRL GAMES? SIGN UP NOW IN THE ADD BELOW!!!!
Without thinking her and her four best friends Hayley, Cassie, Georgie and Morgan sign up, having an idea that it could be fake. When everything they have set on that idea is crushed, what happens? Well, let's just say they are gonna have to keep their eyes open.

19. Getting signed by Uncle Simon

Tahlia's P.O.V
That fight was the biggest and only fight we'd had. My greatest fear I'd losing all of my loved ones to fights. The thought of it just scares me. I flopped down onto my bed and lay in thought. I then sprang up and grabbed my song notebook. I began the opening versus of my song:
There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired lonely place

Walls of insincerity,
Shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
I got stuck at there. "Hayley!!!!"
She came bolting in with a lamp saying "Who do I gotta kill?"
I laughed and said "I need help writing a song." I showed her the opening lines of my song. She smiled and said one word "Louis."
I blushed and she laughed. "Let's get going" she said as she grabbed my guitar. Here we go.....
3 hours later at 11:00pm we finished writing my song, now called 'Enchanted' and I started to sing:
"There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired lonely place

Walls of insincerity,
Shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

Your eyes whispered, "Have we met?"
Across the room your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy

And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

The lingering question kept me up
2 AM, who do you love?
I wonder 'til I'm wide awake
And now I'm pacing back and forth
Wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say, "Hey,
It was enchanting to meet you,
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you."

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

This is me praying that
This was the very first page
Not where the story line ends
My thoughts will echo your name
Until I see you again
These are the words I held back
As I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you
Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you"
I smiled, shut my song book and ran to the kitchen in search of Niall, because we are basically best friends.
"NIALL!!!" He was eating Oreos. He he he!
"Yeah Tahls?"
"I was wondering if I could show you this song. I wanna see what you think."
"Sure!"
We went into his room and I began to sing 'Enchanted'. When I finished, Niall's mouth was open. So I pushed it up with my hand. He then rolled off the bed and crawled to the kitchen. What?? I followed him and saw he was dialing a number on the phone.
"Niall, what are you doing?" He sushed me and I sighed. Then decided to listen into the conversation.
"Hello?" Said a deep voice. Uh oh!
"Hey uncle Simon. It's Niall. I was wondering if you we're in London?"
"As a matter of fact...." I waited for a no but "I am in London. Why?"
"I have a friend who has written heaps of songs and in my opinion they're all really good. Can I bring her in tomorrow?"
"Sure Niall. What's her name?"
"Tahlia Key"
"Ok i'll make an appointment for 10:30am for Niall Horan and Tahlia Key. Thank you Niall. See you tomorrow."
"Bye Uncle Simon"
"Bye Niall"
He hung up and I stared at him with a WTF look on my face. He laughed and walked back to his room. I followed and went and sat on his bed.
"Who is the song about?"
I shrugged. "Louis"
He picked me up and span me around. "I knew it Tahls!" I laughed and he ran off to my room, with me still on his back. I was dropped on my bed. Niall set my alarm clock to 9:00am and ran back to his room. Looks like I'm getting up early.

The next day I awoke to my alarm blaring. I jumped out of bed,grabbed some shorts and a top and ran to the bathroom. Luckily it wasn't being used. I had a shower and washed my hair. I braided it to the side and put no make up on. I put perfume on and walked out of the bathroom. It was 9:30am by then. I put some flats on and went to have breakfast. Niall was out there waiting for me. I made some pancakes, scoffed them, then put my plate in the sink.
"Ready to go Niall?" He nodded. "Got your song book?" I shook my head and sprinted to my room, grabbed a bag and stuffed it in there, along with my purse, phone and a pen in case I wanted to change a song on the way there.
We left at 10:00am and arrived at 1/4 past. We walked into the building and past the receptionist who smiled at Niall. He must come here often.
We took the elevator, which was difficult for Niall because of his claustrophobia. Poor him! When we were half way up Niall started sweating, so I sang 'Count on me' by Bruno Mars. He began to calm down. At the top floor the doors slid open and we walked down a long hallway to a door. Niall knocked and we heard a faint "Come In Niall."
We walked in and Simon smiled at Niall. "I suppose this is Tahlia." I nodded and stuck my hand out. "Nice to meet you Mr Cowell." He shook his head. "Please call me Uncle Simon." I nodded and Niall and I sat down on a couch in the room. I took my song book out and handed it to Simon. He took it and read all the song I wrote. He spoke up after 5 minutes " I really like Sparks Fly, Back to December, Speak now, Dear John, Mean, The story of us, Never Grow up, better than revenge, innocent, haunted, last kiss, long live and especially Mine and Enchanted. Who did you write them about?" I blushed "Louis Tomlinson."
He smiled and said "Sing them me." I asked for a guitar and began to sing Mine:

"You were in college working part time waiting tables
Left the small town, never looked back
I was a flight risk with a fear of falling
Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts
I say can you believe it?
As we're lying on the couch
The moment I can see it
Yes, yes, I can see it now

Do you remember we were sitting there by the water?"
Louis and I actually escaped the night before the games. We went down to a lake and sat there, with his arms around me. I didn't want to go, but Louis let me know that nothing would happen to me. It was the first time he had his arms around me and it felt right. All the other lyrics were made up and not true. It was how I pictured us in a few years. Don't tell anyone!
"You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Flash forward and we're taking on the world together
And there's a drawer of my things at your place
You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded
You said we'll never make my parents' mistakes
But we got bills to pay
We got nothing figured out
When it was hard to take
Yes, yes, this is what I thought about

Do you remember we were sitting there by the water?
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Do you remember all the city lights on the water?
You saw me start to believe for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Oh oh ohh
And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m.
As everything was slipping right out of our hands
And I ran out crying and you followed me out into the streets
Braced myself for the goodbye
'Cause that's all I've ever known
And you took me by surprise
You said I'll ever leave you alone

You said
I remember how we felt sitting by the water
And every time I look at you, it's like the first time
I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter
She is the best thing that's ever been mine

(Hold on, make it last)
(Hold on, never turn back)
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine
(Yes, yes), Do you believe it?
(Yes, yes), We're gonna make it now
(Yes, yes) and I can see it
I can see it now"
Niall smiled and I started with enchanted.
By the end of enchanted I was relieved. I had sang and not stuffed up. Simon looked pleased.
"I think if I let you go, it will be the biggest mistake of my life. I'm signing you to Sony records. Are you able to stay a little longer? I need to record a song and so you can hear what you sound like." I smiled and nodded. "What time will I stay until?"
"It's 11 now so maybe 3:30pm?" I nodded and asked Niall to pick me up then.
"Ok Tahls! Have fun! I'll see you at 3:30!"
"Can you tell Louis that I love him?" He nodded.
I said thanked and goodbye to Niall and he left, making sure to take the stairs. I turned around and Simon said "You could make it big you know. If we record a song and send it to the radio stations in Europe, Australia and America. Everyone could get a taste of you music and we could see how many people like it by putting it on iTunes. If we make many sales and people like it we'll make an entire album and release it next year. Sound good?"
"Yeah. What song will I record?"
"I'm thinking Mine. Maybe well also record Enchanted and put that out there too." I nodded. Simon took me to a music producer. We made the music to both of the songs. It took a long time. It was now 2:30pm. I was then taken me to a recording booth. I put the head phones on and stepped up to the microphone.
The music to Mine began and I began to sing. After the first verse Simon stopped the music and gave me some tips. The music started again and I began to sing. I got to the bridge and was stopped again. I was given more tips and The music started again. I sang my heart out. At the end Simon gave me thumbs up and most of it was done. He said I needed to sing the backing for the end of the song and then it was fully done.
By 3:00 the song was complete and I got to listen to it. I felt weird when first heard my voice and when I continued to listen it sounded really good. My smile was huge.
"Now for the next song"
I managed to sing this in 2 takes. The backing didn't take long and it was 3:30 by the time it was done. Niall walked in the room when we started to listen to it. He stopped in his tracks when he heard the song. "Who's this singing?" He asked with a confused look on his face. I laughed and said "are you that deaf Niall? It's me." His mouth dropped to the floor. He recovered after 30 seconds and said "Time to go Tahls. Everyone is wondering where you are. Bye uncle Simon" he waved to Simon and walked out the door.
"Can I have a copy of my songs, Uncle Simon?" He nodded and gave me a c.d. "I'll send these off tonight. I'll call you tomorrow and tell you when you'll be able to hear yourself on the radio."
"Ok uncle Simon" I waved
"Goodbye Tahls!" He waved back.
I ran out of the room with the c.d in my bag along with my song book, purse and phone. I squealed in the elevator, but saw Niall sweating again. So I sang another song. When we got to the ground floor we walked out and to the car. I can't wait to see their reactions!

Louis P.O.V
When I awoke this morning I skipped into Tahlia's room to find it empty. Where could she be at 11:00 o'clock in the morning? I walked out to the kitchen to see Niall eating some pancakes....and already dressed??
"Where's Tahls?" I asked "and why are you already dressed?"
He turned around and smiled "she is doing something that she has ALWAYS wanted to do. I'm not going to be the one to tell you. She can." I groaned and sat on the couch to watch t.v. "When will she be back?"
"4o'clock"
My eyes widened. "WHAT!"
"Don't worry she isn't skydiving or getting a tattoo. I took her to where she is now, because we are BFF's! Oh! She said to me to tell you that she loves you."
I nodded and looked at the clock. 12:00pm. This'll be a long day.
*3 hours and 15 minutes later*
Niall stood up from the couch and grabbed a jacket.
"Where are you going?" I asked
"To pick up Tahls" I groaned
"Can I come? Please!!!"
"Sorry, but she wants it to be a surprise. Bye Lou!" he left the house and drove away.
The boys and girls kept watching t.v, as we had all day. I got up and went to my room. I have to plan out my next date with Tahlia.
I thought that we could have a moonlit dinner beside a lake and that I could sing to her. Maybe What Makes You Beautiful.
I looked over at the clock and saw that it was 3:55pm. I ran to the lounge room and jumped over the couch. I landed on Zayn's lap.
"Hello Vainzayn!" I said while ruffling his hair. He squealed and ran to the bathroom. He he he! I'm so evil. I heard the door unlock and Niall and Tahlia walked in. I jumped over the couch again and ran to Tahlia. She just managed to put a c.d case onto the kitchen bench before I lifted her up and span her around. She laughed and kissed my forehead.
"I missed you" I whispered.
She laughed "No shit Sherlock!"
I put her down and she grabbed the c.d and sped to the lounge room. I was hot on her heels. The t.v was turned off and Tahlia began to speak.
"You all may have been wondering where I was today. Well....." She looked at Niall and he nodded his head. "... I met up with Uncle Simon." I smiled and shook my head.
"No way!"
"Yes way!" She replied. Everyone looked confused.
"Last night I showed and sang to Niall one of the songs that I wrote. He managed to get an appointment for me.... And I sang 2 songs for Simon. He then signed me to his record label."
Everyone ran to her and gave her a group hug.
"WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!!" Everyone froze.
"Don't you wanna listen to me?"
We all ran back to our seats and she put the disk in the c.d player.
"This is Enchanted"
I listened to her voice and the lyrics. When the song ended I looked at her and she blushed.
"What was this song about?" Asked Hayley.
"Ummm....... It was about my love for........" She trailed off. I blushed.
"Louis" she finished.
"Awwwww" everyone said.
"I managed to record a second song. It's called mine and its about my love for.... Louis" she pressed play and her angelic voice blared through the speakers.
During the bridge she took her phone out and started to talk to someone.
When the song ended she was still on the phone. Her eyes went wide and she said "bye Uncle Simon." When she pressed end on the phone call she ran to her room. I heard her scream and then she ran back.
"What was that about?"
"Well........"
