The Marriage and Baby Project - A Louis Tomlinson Fanfic

"Rosie Moore. You will be partnered with....." He waved his hands around above a piece of paper while covering his eyes. JUST TELL ME! "Louis Tominson" I actually started laughing.
"You're joking right?" The whole class was silent apart from a few 'oohs' started by Zayn Malik. Another one of the populars. There's basically five boys I can't stand in this school. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and the devil himself Louis Tomlinson. Now i'm freaking married to the guy. I've been partnered with my rival Louis Tomlinson in The Marriage and Baby Project...

30. Grease Is The Word and Record Deal?

Well...here we are! The last chapter of The Marriage and Baby Project.

I'm honestly sad. In a way I guess I'm really excited for the sequel but this story is my baby. I don't want to move on. I just really hope I can do it justice with the second book.

Are you guys still going to read it? :)

So over the next couple of days I will be doing a lot of editing, sorting out and other stuff like that so feel free to chat to me or message me to keep the boredom away! Just because I don't update doesn't mean I'm to online! :)


Well I guess I shouldn't delay any longer, here's the last chapter.

Chapter 27:

Grease Is The Word and Record Deal?

________________________


Rosie's POV:


Well, six weeks have passed. It seems like so little but tonight is the big night. It's opening night and Louis, the rest of the cast and I will perform Grease in front of a music producer from L.A.

Nervous doesn't in the slightest explain how I feel.

Anyway, it's one week until Christmas. For some reason I'm not even excited. I've been too stressed thinking about my future. I don't want to rely on tonight.

I've applied to a tonne of different colleges and only got accepted to one. And even if I do attend, I'm not going to be happy.

There's only one line of work I ever want to get into. Performing arts. That's all I've wanted my whole life and settling is not something I'm interested in.

I might not have a choice though.

Basically blocking Delilah out of my life has not been easy. She's constantly near me all the time and I can't stop her. I have to pretend to like her and I have to pretend to be her best friend in the musical! It's not easy.

At least everyone else realises she's a bitch too. Well not everyone. You're never going to guess who her new BFF is. Christina. In reality they're perfect for each-other. Both are bitches who like to ruin lives. They're life ruiners! Any mean girls fans will see what I did there.

But something did happen that I didn't expect. I've actually become extremely good friends with Meg. You may not believe it but she's truly changed. She hasn't tried to kill me like I thought she would. She may be my understudy but I certainly don't think she wants the lead role.

Her and Louis are basically the only people I can really trust.

Speaking of which. Louis has made no moves whatsoever. I swear that boy doesn't even like me. I feel like he's afraid to be near me anymore. I just don't understand it.

"I'm just at your house now, last dress rehearsal is in half an hour so be ready!" Meg reminded me on the other end of the phone as I rushed around my room, grabbing any last minute things I would need for the show.

"Yeah I've got everything. Louis called too. He said he's already there with the boys." I held my phone between the side if my face and my right shoulder as I put on a pair of tattered converse as quick as I could.

"Ok, come out. I'm waiting outside."

I ran down the staircase, calling my goodbyes to everyone but not putting in too much effort as I knew I would see them later on. Honestly the only people I wanted there was Tyler, Charlie and Leila. I didn't want my parents there or the new baby. All they've done is fight since she arrived.

Cora, they called her. Dad hasn't spent a fully day at home in weeks and mum is going insane with stress. As much as she nags me, I can't bear seeing her in the state she is. She looks like she hasn't gotten a wink of sleep since Cora came.

"There you are! We really need to hurry up!" Meg immediately started the car, the second I jumped in and we sped off towards the school building. The curtain was up at seven so we had five hours of rehearsals. Great.

"So, are you excited yet?" Meg asked as she began jumping up and down in the seat, which I might add is not the safest thing you could be doing when driving on a main road.

"You know what, I actually am! I've just never felt so nervous in my life. I guess I'm sort of counting on this show. If this producer likes what he sees then this could be my future." I smiled to myself at the thought of fame. All I've ever wanted is to entertain people.

"You deserve it Rosie. You really do. If anyone should get spotted then it's you." We soon arrived at school and made our way into the auditorium where Ms.Tisou was running around like a mad man.

"Everyone, twenty minutes until rehearsals begin! So get everything sorted! Change into your costumes and look over any lines you haven't memorised." Ms.Tisou looked like she was going to explode at any second and I didn't want to be near her when it happened.

I soon spotted Lou and the lads backstage and hurried over to them alongside Meg.

"Afternoon Boobear!" I beamed at my best friend as I ran over and hugged him tightly. He immediately hugged back and then pulled away.

"Someone's in a good mood?" Louis laughed lightly as he stared at me while I jumped around and giggled like crazy.

"I'm pretty sure that's the nerves." Niall teased, tousling my hair as he chuckled.

"Hey stop it!" I swatted Niall's hand off my head but I couldn't control my fit of giggles. "Where's Hallie?"

"Doing her make-up in the bathroom." Liam answered, still laughing at my giddiness.

"Ok, I'll be right back. I better start on mine too." I rushed off towards the bathrooms behind the stage. I soon found Hallie who looked to be shakily applying her make up.

"Hallie, are you ok?" Hallie dropped her eyeliner pencil like a masked murderer had just walked into the room and threatened to kill her. She fumbled with trying to pick up the pencil again before facing me.

"Oh Rosie, it's you. Sorry I'm just not feeling too well. Actually that's a lie. I have something to tell you, well everyone really." I began to worry as Hallie spoke and her hands were shaking like crazy. My hyper-ness had suddenly worn off and I couldn't have been more anxious to know what was going on.

"Hallie, what happened?" I asked slowly, my palms beginning to sweat. "Oh god you're not pregnant are you? Oh Jesus Hallie. You are aren't you? How could you be so stu-"

"Rosie! I'm not pregnant! Actually it's really good news! I got a college acceptance letter this morning."

I was confused. What's she so nervous about?

"That's great! That's so great! I'm so proud of you Hallie." I rubbed her shoulder lightly but watched as her smile faded.

"Well, the college is in Ireland. It's one of the best there. Trinity College. It's an opportunity I just can't turn down. But it means-"

I cut her off this time. "Leaving Harry. He's going to be devastated Hallie. He's been telling me how serious you guys were getting."

"I know. I don't want to leave him. I really don't, but it's for the best Rosie."

"You're right. Just...just at least wait until after the show." I offered her a reassuring smile and then turned to the mirror to start applying my make up.

"Thanks Rosie."

"Hey, come on. You should be happy. You're going to one of the best colleges in Europe. You don't realise how lucky you are!" She soon had a smile back on her face and we left the bathroom when we were ready.

"Is Mackenzie coming tonight?" Zayn asked uneasily as Hallie and I caught up with everyone. Mackenzie was still upset over her break up with him. She could barely be around him anymore. Zayn in the other hand wants to be friends with her, he's been with tonnes of girls since they broke up though.

"Yeah she is," I smiled weakly as he looked guilty as usual whenever I talked about her. "Just try talking to her Zayn, you can't expect her to automatically forgive you when you haven't even said two words to her."

He shrugged in agreement. "I guess you're right, ill talk to her after the show. Just make sure she stays will you?" I nodded and he told me he was off to change.

Louis' POV:

After the show. Right after the show. That's when I'm gonna do it. I'm definitely going to ask her.

I've put this off for too long. She probably thinks I hate her now...

It's just five words.

Will you be my girlfriend?

There, that wasn't too hard. Now I just have to say it to her face.

That's all I've been thinking about for weeks. The nerves of this show is nothing compared to what I've been feeling about talking to Rosie.

"Everyone! Everyone! Calm down now! On stage! Last dress rehearsal is starting in two minutes. We're going to need Louis Tomlinson and Rosie Moore here please." Ms.Tisou commanded as she stood on the edge of the stage with her bull horn and directors hat.

"Come on then Sandy!" I teased as I grabbed Rosie's hand and swung her on stage. I felt the same sparks I always felt when I touched off her. It's like bolts of lightning shooting up my arms.


~~

"Rosie!" Mackenzie squealed as she spotted Rosie and I behind the curtains. We could see the producer sitting right in the middle of the front row and Rosie was practically shitting herself. The curtains were opening in ten minutes and everyone was ready.

"Mackenzie! You made it!"

"I wouldn't miss this for the world! It's your big show!" The excitement was a little too much for me so I decided to go check on the boys.

"Hey Nialler." I placed my hand on the blonde boy's shoulder as I reached him. I was getting ready to give him a talk. I'm a year and a bit older than him even though we're in the same year at school but I always treat him like a younger brother.

"Hey Lou, what's up?" He was fidgeting with a bottle of water in his grip, probably fighting nerves.

"I just want to talk to you about Meg," Rosie had told me that Meg still had feelings for Niall. She's just been too afraid to even speak to him since the incident at the carnival.

"Meg?" He seemed confused that I had even mentioned her and placed the bottle of water down on the ground.

"Yeah. Look, you're not still mad at her right? I mean, she still likes you. She didn't mean for that to affect you." I've been so serious lately. I've lost my light-hearted, fun-loving self. I wish I could go back to that...

"She likes me? I just...I thought she was using me. I didn't realise she actually liked me." Niall ran his fingers through his hair but couldn't keep the smile from growing on his face.

"She's been afraid to even talk to you. She thinks that you think she's a bully. She's changed." I offered him a reassuring smile.

"I didn't even realise. So, do you think I should ask her out?" If Niall was nervous before, it had definitely multiplied a million times.

"I'd say give it a shot, lad. I can almost guarantee she'll say yes!" I shot him a wink and then abruptly headed back to everyone else.


Rosie's POV:


"Wait, Australia?" I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes as my heart rate picked up. "W-why?"

"My mum lost her job, we have nothing else Rosie. She says there's loads of jobs there and right now it's our only option. She doesn't want me staying in London on my own."

"Mackenzie, you're my best friend." I could handle Hallie moving to Ireland for two reasons. One; Ireland is an hour away on a plane and two; I'm not nearly as close to Hallie as I am Mackenzie.

"I know Rosie, and you're mine. I there was any way of me staying I would take it but...mum needs me. She never really got over dad. I'm still not over him dyeing either. I'm the last thing she has." I understood her completely and there was no way I was going to make her stay. Instead I pulled her into a bear hug.

"When are you leaving?" I barely whispered into her ear.

"Christmas break."

"That's so soon Mickey. I'm never going to get to see you anymore."

"Mum says you can come visit whenever you want as soon as we get a house. Besides, you're gonna be so busy with exams and college and your whole life that you'll probably forget about me."

"I'll never forget about you Mackenzie."


~~

"Welcome everyone to the opening night of Grease the musical! Performed by the wonderful and talented drama class of Year Twelve! Remember to turn off all electrical devices and just enjoy yourselves!"

You know when you're so nervous that the only thing you can hear is your heart beating in your ears. My whole future was relying on this one show. It would be the easy option.

I heard the opening music of the show begin and I felt as if I was going to throw up. I immediately turned to Louis and he mouthed, "You'll do great Rosie." He grabbed my hand in his and I knew I was ready.

I could do this.

I fixed my blonde wig and straightened out my fifties style skirt.

It's time.

Louis' hand left mine as he and the rest of the boys headed to the other side of the stage. I stayed with Hallie, Christina, Delilah and Willow.

Oh god, I'm gonna be sick.

The next thing I heard was Louis' angelic voice outside of the curtain. Everything he sang was in perfect key.

"Summer lovin' had me a blast," as Louis finished his first line, I knew that was my due to go on stage.

"Summer lovin' happened so fast," I skipped on stage, reluctantly linking arms with Delilah as I did so. Delilah was playing Frenchy so she was basically the best friend of Sandy. Great.

As soon as I spotted Louis again, I felt immediately more comfortable.

"I met a girl crazy for me," Louis locked his gaze with mine and shot me a wink as he sung his next line.

"Met a boy cute as can be," I had never had to act so cute and girly in my life. It was kind of weird to be honest.

"Summer days driftin' away to uh-oh those summer nights," we both sang together this time in perfect harmony and everything felt perfect.

As the song went on and finally came to an end, I felt better and better about being in stage.

There was a sea of whistles and clapping from the audience as we finished the first scene. I tried my best to not even look at the producer which was quite hard as he couldn't have been any more visible.


~~

Everyone huddled around each-other backstage as we neared the end of the show. We were about to do our last performance and I had managed to not even mess up once. I was beyond proud of myself and it was great to see everyone out there supporting me.

Mum actually smiled all the way through the show and dad wrapped his arm around her. I saw Mackenzie too but she looked as if she was fighting back tears. I just wanted to go and hug her but obviously that wasn't possible.

Of all the things though, nothing was harder than pretending to like Delilah. A couple of times, she had tried to trip me up and would try to confuse me during songs but I somehow made no mistakes.

"You're all doing brilliantly well. Everyone wait behind after the show. I will be speaking with the producer afterwards and he might want to talk to some of you too."

"I want to talk to you too Rosie." Lou nudged his shoulder off mine and smiled cheekily at me.

I ignored Louis' vagueness as the music for the last song came on.

Everyone once again took their places.

I sang my lines correctly and so did everyone else, until we reached near the end.

I could see Delilah and Christina out of the corner of my eye, plotting and scheming some way for me to mess up.

Two lines from the finish.

I was so close to the end, Delilah ran up near the front and made it look like an accident. She simply whacked off my side causing me to trip up in front of everyone.

I was never so embarrassed in my life. I wanted to just run off stage and cry.

Louis came next to me and lifted me up just as the curtains dropped.

"Are you ok?" He asked as sincerely as possible but I wasn't in the mood.

"Just leave me alone Louis!" He seemed taken aback by my outburst and I suddenly felt guilty. I didn't apologise though. Instead I pulled off my wig and ran to the dressing rooms.

That was my chance.

Everything was blown.

I ruined my chance. No scratch that, Delilah ruined my chance. I don't even know why she hates me so much.

What did I do to her?


Louis' POV:

I wanted to run after her and check on her but Ms.Tisou wouldn't let me.

I felt so horrible and I wanted to strangle Delilah for doing that to her.

There was nothing I could do though.

"Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, can you please come over here?" I heard a man's voice calling me and my head immediately shot up from where I was standing.

"Yeah?" Harry seemed just as confused as we all were.

"Boys, this is Simon Cowell." I don't know how I didn't realise. I couldn't see him properly from the stage. I knew he looked familiar, I just couldn't put my finger on it.

I looked at each of the boys and they all were completely starstruck as was I.

"Nice to meet you." I tried to sound confident as I reached out to shake his hand.

"As to you. Now boys, I see a lot of potential in each of you. Truth is, I've been looking for a new boy band for a while. It seems like you five would fit the bill perfectly." As soon as I heard boy band I felt the need to laugh.

Me...in a boy band? Really?

"A boy band?" Zayn questioned uneasily as I scratched the back of my neck while weighing out my options in my head.

"I know it may be a little hard to take in but if you want, we'd love you to book you five into an appointment with Sony in the morning. If they see the same talent I see then we'll sign you." I felt like I was going to start hyperventilating at that moment. The only thing that kept popping into my head though was Rosie.

I can't just leave her. I promised I'd be with her the whole way. She was supposed to get this record deal! Not me!

I can't do this.

"We'll do it!" Liam exclaimed. I nearly choked on my own spit. I knew Liam would say yes. He had always wanted a singing career and this was his big opportunity, it was all our opportunities.

"Woah woah woah Liam! Can we please discuss this?" I blurted out as I tried to keep myself standing. I felt so dizzy, like I was going to collapse.

The five of us then walked over to a corner and huddled around each other. I still couldn't breathe but tried to keep calm. "Lads, are you sure about this?" My voice was barely above a whisper as I spoke.

"Louis, this is something everyone dreams of. That's freaking Simon Cowell over there!" Harry exclaimed with a massive grin on his face.

"We could get signed to Syco!" Niall added in.

"I know but...a boy band?" I also added sceptically as all eyes were on me.

"I just think if we let this go we're going to regret it for the rest of our lives." Zayn's words of wisdom were the ones that stuck in my head out of everyone's.

He was right. I mean I've said it myself; 'Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain.' It's sort of something I live by so I can't forget it at a time like this.

"Ok." We're my last words before the four other boys practically threw me in their shoulders. There were shouts of joy and happiness as everyone else congratulated us.

That was when I spotted her.

She was standing in the corner with tears in her eyes yet she somehow had a weak smile of her face.

My heart couldn't have broken any more.
