The Lucky One (One Direction Story)

Sam, just a normal 16 year old teenage girl in high school goes to audition at X-Factor in the UK, cause after all she is British. No one knew she sang, or even talked, she was the quiet girl who sat in the corner that kept to herself. Does Sam have a voice? Sam hasn't always been good with the boys, she is very socially awkward, if you were to look up "awkward" in the dictionary, you would see her picture there. No literally, some girls put a picture of her there, her freshman year school photo. Let's just say you don't want to see that picture. Turns out, there was a lot of twists when she went to X-Factor. Did she get through? Did she even sing or just stand there like a fool? Or was there something else?


5. A New Beginning

I looked out of the car window back at the house. I can't believe we are actually leaving. As we drove down the main road of Doncaster, I saw teenagers that went to my school drive around and walk around the streets. I wasn't going to say bye. I didn't need to. It's not like they would care, they had no idea who I was anyways except for the quiet girl who sits in the back of the class. We stopped and I turned my head to see why..oh a red light. I turned my head again to look out the window and I was surprised. There she was, the blonde demon. I turned to look at my mom and my attention went to her hand which was rolling down my window on my side. God dammit mom, why the hell did you have to do that. I looked at Morgan who was at the light next to us and her window was down too. Okay so maybe if we stay quiet she wouldn't notice us. Then of mom screams.."Oh my god Sam I love this song!" and she turns the volume up..all the way. I saw Morgan jerk her head to the side because she was surprised by the sudden outburst of music. She had realized it was me and started laughing. The light turned green and she sped ahead of us. That would be the last time I would see Morgan. Thank god. 

My mom was singing the song that was on the radio, "AND LET ME KISS YOU!" 

I couldn't blame my mom, she had loved One Direction, I mean was obsessed with them. Well not that I wasn't. Don't get me wrong, I thought they were good. I just wasn't as much as a fan like my mom. I know, thats weird, my mom is a bigger fan of a teenage boy band than I am. I think I didn't really like One Direction so much because this boy was in the band who I had gone to school with maybe 1 or 2 years ago. But forget that! Now I was just glad now that I would never have to see Morgan again. 

We were still driving and it was now 8:57a.m. I don't know why I am so accurate with time. I could have just said that it was 9a.m. but I am OCD about this thing. Now that I think about it I am OCD about a lot of things. We have been in the car for a little less than an hour and the uhaul truck was still behind us bringing all of our crap to wherever we will be living in London. 

My eyes started to close knowing that I would be in the car for another 2 hours because it took 3 hours to get from Doncaster to London. I might as well just take this time to sleep since my mom had set my alarm for 5a.m. and I haven't actually had gotten a good nights sleep in the longest time. 


"HONEY, WE'RE HOME!" were the words that woke me up. I tried to figure out the voice. When I didn't get up, she said again, "Sweetheart, wake up! It's 11:30a.m. and we are at our new home." Oh okay, it was my moms voice. 

I realized what she had said and my eyes shot right open. 

I couldn't believe what I was looking at. Would we really be living here? It's so big, it's so pretty! But how did we have the money! I expected a small little flat, one floor with one bedroom or something. But looking at this house it seemed as if it had 10 bedrooms and 3 floors. 

"Mom, is this a joke or are we really living here?" I asked.

"No, this isn't a joke, don't question anymore, just go pick out what room you want and begin to move in!" My mom answered. 

I didn't argue when she said no more questions because now I could say that I was speechless. I looked at the house and the longer I looked at it, the more my jaw would drop. I looked at every detail of the house that I would now be living in. It was a big white house, there was a red door and black shudders. I have always dreamed of a house like this. I wanted a big house forever. My last house was average, it wasn't big like this. I could get used to this though. I walked onto the cement path that led to the red front door. As I got to it, I looked at the silver handle and then looked further down at the welcome mat. My handed reached the handle and I opened the door. I did say that the house was beautiful from the outside right? Well if the outside was beautiful then the inside was absolutely perfect. I know there is no furniture in yet but it didn't need furniture to be perfect. I walked around downstairs and found that there had been no bedrooms downstairs. The only things downstairs were, a laundry room, the kitchen, a dining room, a living room, an office and a room that was all the way in the back. When I walked into the room, I saw a huge huge tv that was built into the wall, I said that I would call that the "Film Room." I never had a film room before but I am sure happy I do now with all the films I watch! I walked back towards the front door and up the stairs. The best part is that there were two stair cases, one on each side of the foyer. I walked up the right stair and decided to take at the hallway right as well. I had to check all the rooms before I could pick mine. I wanted to leave my mom with the biggest room because she deserved it! I looked into all of the 5 bedrooms and saw they were all the same size aside from the master bedroom which I gave to my mom. The master bedroom had a double door to enter and it was all the way at the end of the right side of the hall. I didn't want to be at the furthest room from my mom so I chose the one that was beside it. I was completely okay with this room. There was a huge walk in closet, had it's own bathroom and 2 doors to open for a balcony! 

I left the room and went down the stairs again and outside to run up to my mom and hug her. She was still leaning against the car looking at the house so she didn't see me coming. I ran up to her and wrapped my skinny arms around her and said, "Mom, I don't know how you got this house and I don't care, but thank you so much." 

"Oh darling, you're welcome." She said with a smile that looked somewhat real but still had a sense of hurt. 

We began unpacking everything and bringing things in the house while the "moving" guys brought in the furniture and we set everything up. 


"How much for your help, boys?" My mom said to the "moving" guys. 

"You already paid us honey." The red head boy said and winked. 

I didn't question why he winked, maybe it was just hospitality. The 3 "moving" guys left and my mom turned around to look at me with a smile. "So what do you think?" she said. "I think it's amazing, the best place ever. I could really get used to this new beginning!" 

"New beginning?" She asked

"Oh yeah. Well since you know I hated Doncaster and everyone and everything there, I figured I can start over here. You know? Cause no one here knows me and all." I said partially smiling.

"Oh hun, that is great! I'm glad you're happy here. I have never seen you this happy and this makes me happy. And that is a fabulous idea to have a new beginning. That is what I will be doing as well."

I wasn't really listening to what my mom had said because I was listening in the background to the radio that was on. I heard the guy on the radio say, "Tomorrow, auditions for the xfactor, more info to come later tonight."

"Mom.." I said after I saw that she was done speaking. "Yes darling?" 

"Uhm..I think..I..will audition for the xfactor maybe tomorrow." 

I saw the look on her face. Was it shock, confusion, anger, happiness?

"Oh my god, yes, I have wanted you to for so long. I have heard you sing before and you for sure have a talent. I just didn't want to say anything about the auditions because I didn't think you would want to."

"Yeah..I think I am going to do it." After all, this is a new beginning and no one here knew who I was right? 

 I mean I live 3 hours away from Doncaster so of course no one would know me. So yeah, I will audition tomorrow, I have always been ready for this moment.

And here I go on with my new life, a new town, a new house, a new room, a new happiness, a new confidence. A new beginning.
