Pitch Slapped

Delany was a freshman in high school and orientation was where clubs recruited the 'freshies'. Many clubs asked for her to come join but they all seemed to dorky like the chess club or book club. She didn't want to be a nerd like in middle school. She wanted to stand out, shine. That's when one specific club caught her eye, not just because of the guy recruiting with his brunette curls. Just the idea of it all. Being noticed.

33. A Thousand Years

"Delany, you're up." Cowell called. I stood up and walked on stage. I  changed my song last night. I knew it was short noticed but my heart told me to go with it. I grabbed the mic and walked to the stair case and sat down on the top step and leaned my head against the rail. Their was no beat boxers with me. Just me and my voice.

"Heart beats fast. Colors and promises. How to be brave. How can I love when I'm afraid to fall, but watching you stand alone. All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow... one step closer..." I sang the beginning.

I stood and continued with the song walking down the staircase, "I have died everyday waiting for you, darling don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years... I'll love you for a thousand more..." 

I slowly walked to the front on the stage following the beat in my head, "Time stands still. Beauty in all she is. I will be brave, I will not let anything take away. What's standing in front of me. Every breath, every hour comes to this... One step closer..."

I put the mic in the microphone stand and sang the chorus, "I have died everyday waiting for you, darling don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years... I'll love you for a thousand more... All along I believed I would find you. Time has brought your heart to me. I have loved you for a thousand years... I'll love you for a thousand more..." My eyes were locked with Harry's.

Once I reached the end of the song everyone clapped but no one cheered. I looked and some people were wiping tears away from their eyes. Why are they crying? I looked at Cowell as he wiped away tears.

"That my dear, was a real performance," He wiped the tears away, "That was so beautiful. I felt the emotions from you and the sitting on the stairs was just genius. I want exactly what I just saw for sectionals." Cowell said.

"Thank you." I smiled and headed off stage back to my seat.

"Alright well now the duet and solo are checked of the list I will announce the big group number." Cowell told us.

Everyone cheered in excitement at what the big number would be and Cowell waited until everybody piped down.

"It's going to be Marry You by Bruno Mars." Cowell announced.

Everyone clapped and cheered. Then Cowell put his hand up for us to be silent.

"I will assign the solos in the song tomorrow so come happy." He dismissed us.

Everyone got up and headed towards the door except me. Harry wanted to talk to me.
