Pretend It's Love

"Hey girl it's now or never, it's now or never."
Spencer always wanted to leave America to live in England. She always felt like herself there everytime she visited. So when her parents give the big news that her family was moving there permanently, Spencer was excited to live there and hang out with her friends. The only problem is that her friends got One Direction tickets and they want her to come. Spencer doesn't like 1D in any way or form. But when things get messed up, will her life become different?


16. The New Addition

<Clara POV>

"LOVE dance. It's something that me and Spencer have in common." I said to Liam. Oh my goodness. I was actually talking to THE Liam Payne of One Direction. Stay calm, Clara. Remember you promised Spence you'd stay calm.

"Cool." He complimented. "You think you two could show a little dancing?" That was when I had to control my inner fangirl.

Do it. I thought. You don't know why he asked, but do it. "Sure." I answer. I leave Liam alone and rush over to Spencer who was showing the others her split. Of course, she has it perfectly. "SPENCE!" I yell running. "SPENCE! LIAM JUST ASKED IF WE CAN SHOW THE BOYS OUR DANCING!"

She got up and said, "Clara, I would more than likely be glad to keep both of my hearing. But I didn't bring any of my dance stuff." Oh god. I completely forgot. If I knew we were going to show them a routine we made up, I would have brought my stuff.

"We have warm up stuff for background dancers. You guys can borrow them if you want." Louis offered.

"Okay." Spencer replied, "Down the hall, right?"

"Fourth door on your right." Mr. Bridgett surprised. I didn't even know he was here anyway. "Girls, why don't you do the routine you two made to one of their songs."

<Spencer POV>

"Girls, why don't you do the routine you two made to one of their songs." Really, dad? I didn't like that routine for two reasons.
1)The song choice. Clara insisted on doing "More Than This", and I pretty much argued with her until I finally gave in.
2)I have a flipping solo! I get nervous when I do solos! What if I fail?!

The only good thing about that routine is that the dance style we chose was contempary. That is my favorite dance style! I was going to complain on how I didn't want to do it, but then I second-guessed on that.

"Alright. I'll do it." I say.

"Excellent! I'll show you where the dressing room is." My dad cheered and we walk with him to room 1C (Next to that room is room 1D. Haha). When we entered the room, there was this whole array of warmup tank tops, shorts, leotards, tights, and various dance shoes in all different sizes.

I chose this black leotard, black shorts, and a set of toes. I took the beanie off and used the hairtie I had to put my hair up in a bun. Clara chose almost the same thing, except she chose the tank top, shorts, and toes. Her hair was in a bun since we picked her up to come here.

"Hey, Spence." She said to me.

"What?" I asked. She walks towards me and places her hand behind my head. Her hand comes back with a strand of my hair that I must have forgotten. I look at it in confusion and then I realized why. "Oh. My. God. Blonde!" I shout.

"The dye must not be as permanent as the salon stylist said." Clara adds still holding onto the strand.

"Girls!" My dad calls from the other side of the door.

"Coming!" I yell. Clara lets go of my hair and we walk out and run to the stage, not even caring about my dad.

When we reach the stage, the boys were just finishing another song that I didn't care about. "Oh, good. You're hear." Niall said walking off the stage.

"We thought you left us." Harry continues. "Ya ready?" He asks.

"Ready than ever." I answer in my sarcastic voice.

"Alright." Louis cheers.

We walk onto stage and we take our position. I thought they were just going to play the track, but when the music started, they were actually singing. But it was the wrong song.

"We chose 'More Than This', not 'Gotta Be You'." Clara corrects. Apparently, she knows more than me. They corrected the song and our routine started.

We made it through the first verse and the first time the chourus started. Then Clara ran off leaving me to start my solo. I made it through the first part, but when that part that goes "In his arms, I get weak.", I have to spin around hugging myself (for "in his arms") and then I go into a one-handed cartwheel and fall to the ground in a cheerleader squat. Yeah, that's how well I'm good at with gymnastics. Thanks Ms. Kristen for wasting a whole class period just to get that down.

I do the spin, and go into the cartwheel and land perfectly. I did it! I accomplish my fear! I finish my solo and then run off for Clara's solo. She's been dancing longer than me, so she has more experiences than me. 

Finally, it was my turn to go back on stage and finish our routine. It was awesome.

"Cause I can love you more than this. Can love you more than this." They sing and we get into our final pose.

"That. Was. Epic!" I scream while getting up from the dirty floor covered with shoe gunk and such.

"I KNOW!" Clara cheered. We high fived each other and went to get a drink of water. While taking a sip, I heard surprise clapping that made me startle and do a spit take.

"Oh god, sorry!" I apologize to Liam who I spit took on.

"That's okay. The boys spit on me a lot, and I'm used to it." He says. "But that was brilliant!" He complimented. My eyes widened. "Me and the boys were thinking if you two would like to be the other background dancers for tour."

Now, I'm in my fangirl/Did I just hear what he said mode. "D...Did you just say what I thought you said?" I ask. They all nod. "Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god." I repeatedly said while trying to control my breathing. When my breathing was finally controlled, I looked at Clara, who was looking at me, and then my dad. We both look back at the boys and screamed, "YES! YES! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!"

"But wait," Clara stops, "I have to call my mum. She'll probably want to work this out with me."

"I already called." Dad said, "She said that it's all right, congratulations to you two, and that she hopes you have fun in America but not too much fun." She started to squeal and ran over to hug my dad. "Oh, and since Spence is already coming with me, she can also join." That was when I started to squeal and ran over to hug him.

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!" I yelled squeezing him like a teddy bear.

"Can't. Breathe. Please. Let. Go." He wheezed. I let go and just stood there. I may be looking normal on the outside, but on the inside, my organs are doing a happy dance.

"Hey, we're here." We heard a voice say. The two of us turn around and see...


*Author's note*
So I'm sick with strep :P and it sucks! I had to stay home from school today! Bleh. At least tomorrow will be the last day of school before winter break! My mom and dad said that it was better that I got strep this week instead of next week cause it would suck for me to be sick on Christmas.

So the next chapter will consist of the winners from my contest. And, well, since I'm home and I will have nothing to do today, I decided to change the ending date from tomorrow to today. So today is your last chance to enter! I will choose the winners this afternoon and begin to work on the chapter. So good luck to everyone and may the odds be ever in your favor.

So that's all. Thanks for reading!
