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.

40. Sectionals

I could hear Harry and Perrie singing their duet from backstage. This was it, I was almost up. I glanced down a myself, a long white dress that went all the way to the ground was for my solo, my red hair was curled and my pale skin was done perfectly with make up. 

Come on Delany, you can do this.

"Hey," I heard an Irish accent behind me. 

I turned around to see Niall, "Hi."

"Well, I just wanted to say good luck." He smiled.

"Thank you and good luck to you too." I told him.

"Thanks." He replied.

"So, how are things with Demi?" I asked trying to keep my mind off of my solo.

"Good, I asked her to be my girlfriend the other day, she said yes." He said.

"Good for you!" I hugged him.

"Delany get in position!" A guy back stage called.

I let go of Niall and faced him, "Well, this is it."

"Break a leg." He kissed me on the cheek and walked away. Was that an Irish thing? Do they kiss people on the cheeks?

I walked to the staircase they had for me and I sat down. The curtain was closed as Harry and Perrie finished their duet. This was it, deep breath, relax. The curtain opened slowly as I sat with the mic in my hand. No harmonies, just 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..."

I started the song just like I rehearsed. I hit every note right as I went into the chorus slowly walking down the stairs. I could see the rest of the Manchester Mixers sitting in the audience, they all smiled at me. Niall went and sat by Demi. Harry and Perrie quietly took a seat and I saw Harry smiling. I hit everything spot on and as I came tot he end everyone was on their feet, I saw the Manchester Mixers slowly make their way to the main doors into the theater.

I quickly walked backstage and changed into a bright puffy blue dress. I ran to the main doors and got my spot in line. The door opened as Niall and Demi walked down both isles singing. Then Harry and I walked next dancing around and sing our solos. We all danced our way to the stage.

We were having too much fun singing and dancing on stage and when we reached the end the crowd was on their feet. Even some of the judges stood.

As we all got off stage everybody high fived each other and said good job. We all did amazing. 

"That was beautiful." Harry walked up to me and kissed me.

"Thank you." I smiled at him after I pulled away.

After the next three performances finished the judges called everybody to the stage and they dismissed the people who didn't make top three one by one. Luckily we were in the top three.

"In third place we have, The Yellow Jackets. Good job, give them a round of applause." The judge announced.

The Yellow Jackets grabbed their trophy and exited the stage. This was it we were in top two.

"And in first place we have," There was a long pause, "Manchester Mixers!"

We all screamed and jumped. We made it to regional's! Harry walked up and grabbed the trophy from they judge. We all walked to the trophy and held it up with excitement. Harry was right, he knew we could win!

As we exited the stage I walked up to Harry, "You were right, we won!"

"All because of you." He leaned in and kissed me.

 

The End
