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?


25. The pre-concert

Me and Harry arrived at North Greenwich Arena. We exit the car and run backstage. When we reached the others, I noticed that Liam and Clara have just arrived too. Well, Liam was already out of breath from running from the parking lot to here.

"I got to get changed into outfits." Harry says to me, our hands interlocked. "You can let go now, Spence."

My grip was rather loose. "Well, if you stop squeezing my hand and cutting off the blood circulation, I can be able to run and get changed into costume." He releases his grip and we run our separate ways. I make it to the background dancers dressing rooms and knock on the door.

"Who is it?" The familiar voice of Jessica Marie asks.

"It's Spencer. Me and Harry just got here. Let me in!"

"You're alone, right?"

I look to my left, no one there, then to my right, no one. "I'm forever alone."

I hear the tumble of a lock and the door swings open, there stands Jessica Marie in our costume for the first few numbers. A black and white Union Jack tank top, striped shorts with the One Direction logo sewn onto the right pocket, and white tennis shoes. I run in and throw on the same thing. I throw my hair up into a nice ponytail and put on my competition earrings. I re-adjust my make-up the way I would for dance competititon and begin to stretch out.

"So how was your day with Harry?" Abbey asked.

"It was fine thanks for asking." I answer.

"Did you hear what happened during my day with Liam? It all over twitter." Clara spoke.

I go down into a split to stretch my legs and reply, "No, I haven't been on twitter in a while. No since the last tweet I sent out."

"Which was...?" Jessica Marie says in a scared tone.

"'Leaving America. Heading to England. See y'all later, or not.' That was when I left Boston Airport. So what exactly happened?"

Clara pulls out her phone from her bag and hands it to me. I go into butterfly and read the tweet Sweetteens Magazine tweeted about an hour ago.

"Is @real_liam_payne finally moving on from ex Danielle Peazer? Local photographers snapped pictures of the One Direction member hanging with another girl at the local Wolverhampton Park earlier today. No reports on if it is real or if she's just a flirt." Jessica Marie mentioned her in a retweet. "@Jessica_Marie18: CLARA!!!! YOU NEED TO SEE THIS TWEET!!! @clarawearsch13 RT:" and then the tweet.

Clara has been noticed by paparazzi. "Wow. So what else happened to you besides paps, Clara?" I ask handing her phone back to her.

"Well, I woke Liam up Brian dropped me off. His mum warned us saying that she will murder the two of us if the storks come calling, we went to the park, ran away from paps, hid in the bushes, uhhhh....other things at the park, went home, and then came here."

Abbey, Jessica Marie, and I exchanged glances to each other. The three of us knew she was hiding something. "Alright, Clara, what are you hiding?"

She stayed silent. Her gaze was casted to the floor. She was hiding something, and we wanted to know. "I'm not hiding anything."

"Clara, tell us now or we'll have to tickle you for it." Abbey taunted. Tickle?

She gets up from her seat and starts to back away from us. "Don't tickle me, guys. You know how I feel when I'm tickled!"

We get closer to her and then she blurts out what we wanted her to tell us. "OKAY! LIAM KISSED ME! FULL ON THE LIPS!"

We stop, look at each other, and then at Clara, and then back at each other. A smile starts to spread on our faces. "Omigosh, Clara! Your first kiss! Congrats!" We all congratulate her on her very first kiss. It's a big milestone in her life.

"Wait, where was it?" I ask.

"In the bushes of the park." Well, it's better than having your first kiss in a hospital, with a scar on your head, and your family and friends went to get chicken, and you were in a hospital room.

"C'mon. We have a few hours to rehearse one last time, and then we can relax until the concert." I hear my dad announce behind the door. We leave the dressing room and head to the stage for one last rehearsal.


"That was a nice rehearsal." I say as we walk into the dressing room for a thirty minute break. I can hear people piling into the stadium from here. Man, it was going to be crowded tonight. I wonder what Grace and Rachael will think when they find out...


Ah, they'll find out that we're onstage with One Direction instead of sitting with them at the concert.

"Fifteen minutes till showtime, people. Everyone report to stage left." The intercom speaker announces.

I take a deep breath. "This is it, Clara." I tell her. "Our big moment is out there. Fifteen minutes, we will be living the dream."

"I know. And I get to spend it with my best friend." She says. We take a moment to hug each other. The past two weeks have been the best two weeks of my life. And after tonight, for the next month or two, I'll spend it with a bunch more people who helped make these two weeks memorable.

We walk to stage left. There we see dad and Paul, the boys' security gaurd. They were having a quick chit chat. Dad was all set as stage manager, with the headphones, clipboard, and the songlist in hand.

I give dad a quick hug before I head to my positiion onstage. "I'm so proud of you, Spence." He whispers to me. "Go out there and have fun."

"I will." I tell him. We let go and I head to my position by Clara. The lights are still dark. I look out into the crowd, and it was nothing like a dance recital crowd or a competition crowd. This was twice the size. Butterflies churn in my stomach. Oh, god. I've never been this nervous in my life for anything.

Behind me, a video plays. It announces all the boys, their likes and dislikes, and it looks like they're heading to the beach. The crowd is going nuts. Five seconds left. This is it.





The boys run out onto the stage and the crowd goes berserks.

Here we go.


*Author's note*
Okay, so my internet was down for a while, and now it's back so I am here, updating. So I have a story for you guys, but I'm going to make it a long story short.

I sprained my ankle.

Yeah. Before a basketball game, during warm-up, I did a lay-up, and landed wrong and rolled my ankle. It was swollen badly! So I had to get it checked out and because it was swollen badly, the x-ray didn't come out right. So the doctor just said it was a moderate sprain, and now I'm on an air cast and using crutches. And that was Thursday.

Oh, and I created the costume the girls are wearing for the performance on polyvore. So the link for that is below!

That's all. Thanks for reading!
