31. The Plan Unfolds

Missy POV

"please please pleeeeeease!!" Niall begs me literally grovelling at my feet.

"Niall, we JUST had breakfast, and i need to be at the studio in only 10 minutes so calm down and i promise we can go get something later alright?" i say sternly from the drivers seat, everyone is coming with us to the studio, they all wanted to be there for my first time in a recording booth.

"fiiine." he huffs sitting back in his seat.

 

*at the recording studio*

 

"Missy darling!" an elderly lady says greeting me. i honestly havent got a clue who she is. "long time no see boys, and you girls must be Sarah and Kierstin. Missys friends."

"yes ma'am" i say, i am being fairly polite since i have no clue what is going on and i am freaking out inside, im shy, dont judge!

"you can call me Bella dear." she says grabbing my elbow gently and pulling me off down a hallway. "now, im going to take you to meet Jake, he is going to be helping you in the studio."

"awesome, thank you so much" i say kindly

"oh dear, you are far more kind than the boys you hangout with." she says chuckling as we walk into a small studio room.

"they're just being boys" i say laughing with her.

"hey, we heard that!" Louis says with a hurt tone

"calm down Boobear" Bella says winking at me. "alright, Jake this is Missy, Sarah, Kierstin and of course you already know these trouble makers" she says introducing us to a young, maybe 19, year old boy with short brown hair and bright blue eyes.

"hello ladies, im Jake." he says with a bright smile towards us. "shall we get started?"

i nod and am motioned to the room through a glass door with a mic and abunch of musical instruments. everyone else sits down on the large couch behind jake and the sound board. i step into the room and shut it i walk over to the mic and see a headset i look up to see Jake motioning for me to put it on. i put it on and i can immediatly hear Jakes voice through the headphones.

"alright awesome, can you hear me Missy?" he says and i nod. "great, alright, so pretty much we are going to start with just some covers for music just to get you used to the feel of the studio. then did you bring a songbook or something with some original songs?" i nod again "wonderful, so then after afew covers we can start on some of your own music."

"Okie Dokie" i say smiling up at everyone through the glass

"so which song would you like to start with?" he asks looking down at the control board

"uhm... Holding Out For A Hero by Ella Mae Bowen." i say smiling

"nice choice, do you need lyrics?" he asks looking through a book

"nope, i know this song like the back of my hand" i say giggling slightly

"ok, well we are going to do a single run through, then we will go through it over and over until we have it all good and sounding awesome" he says giving me a thumbs up i return the thumbs up then look at the mic infront of me, this is when the nerves hit. i cant do it, i go to sing but i freeze.

"im sorry..." i say in a small voice choking back tears.

"its alright, do you need a moment?" Jake says in a kind voice

"uhm... yeah." i say taking off the head set and sinking to the floor, i hear the door click and i look up through blurry eyes to see a blob with big curly hair walking towards me and sitting down infront of me.

"Missy, everything alright?" Harry says in a quiet voice.

"Yeah, im good." i say looking back down at my knees

"Dont lie to me love, i know your nervous, its alright... i get that way before every show." he says leaning over and hugging me tightly. "You have a beautiful voice, and i am not just saying that because im your boyfriend, im serious, you are amazing, talented, beautiful and everything i have ever wanted and needed, you need to be more confident with yourself its what makes you beautiful." i look up at him and give a weak smile, he just winks at me and i cant help but love him more.

"thank you Harry" i say kissing his cheek before letting go of him and standing up, i take a deep breath and put the headset back on. Harry goes to walk out but i grab his hand and squeeze it gently. "stay" i say in a tiny voice looking up at his towering figure. he just looks at me and nods before grabbing another headset from the side wall

"alright, so duet?" Jake says looking at us kind of confused. i just look at Harry and he shrugs i look back at Jake and nod my head. ``Harry just do the harmonies or background vocals because we already know you can sing, this is Missys time to shine``

"whoo Harry!" Louis cheers from the other room we can just hear him through the headsets it causes both of us to laugh and i step up to the mic again, this time with my hand in Harrys and this time with more confidence cause i know that i have people who believe in me and are rooting for me to do my best.

Missy:

Where have all the good men gone
And where are the gods?
Where's the streetwise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?

Isn't there a white knight
Upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn
And dream of what I need

Both:

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life, larger than life

Missy:

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me

Racing on the thunder
And rising with the heat                                                                                                                                  Isn't there a Superman
To sweep me off my feet?

Both:

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

Missy:

I pray the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I can swear that there's someone somewhere
Watching me

Through the wind and then the chill and the rain
And the storm and the raging flood
Oh, his approaches like a fire in my blood

I'll meet a hero
And then we'll dance till the morning light
Dreaming, he will lead me
Held tight, tonight's the night

Both:

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life, larger than life

Larger than life
Larger than life
Oh baby, baby, baby, you know, ooh
Oh

 

``Beautiful guys!`` we hear after the song is over, i cant help smiling up at Harry as he leans down and kisses my forehead and wraps me up in a hug.

``thank you...`` i say up to him

``anything for you love`` he whispers back before letting me go and leaving the booth. he looks back at me and winks before i continue with the song on my own. five more run throughs and it was ready for editing. we recorded three more covers before it was time for the plan to come into effect.

``Missy did you want to try something else for a song or two?`` Jake asks giving me a knowing look from behind the window.

``yeah! Sarah, Kierstin get in here!`` i say excitedly.

they walk in and look at me confused, grab a headset then stand at the solo mics next to me.

``what are we doing Miss`` Sarah says looking at me with slight concern but also excitment

``singing, for fun.`` i say smiling up at her.

``alright i guess...`` Kierstin says laughing at my happiness.

``any preferences Jake?`` i say and look up at him and the boys. they start talking so that we cant hear them and i notice them laughing then looking at us.

``alright, the song you girls will be singing... is One More Night by Maroon 5.`` i hear Nialls loud laughing through the headset and i just smile at the girls knowing that we had this, we had just been singing this song the other day at school. i just nod and the music starts.

 

Sarah:

You and I go hard at each other like we're going to war
You and I go rough, we keep throwing things and slamming the door
You and I get so damn dysfunctional, we stopped keeping score
You and I get sick, yeah I know that we can't do this no more

Missy:

But baby there you go again, there you go again, making me love you
Yeah, I stopped using my head, using my head, let it all go
Got you stuck on my body, on my body, like a tattoo
And now I'm feeling stupid, feeling stupid, crawling back to you

All:

So I cross my heart and I hope to die
That I'll only stay with you one more night
And I know I've said it a million times
But I'll only stay with you one more night

Kierstin:

Try to tell you no, but my body keeps on telling you yes
Try to tell stop, but you just got me so out of breath
I'd be waking up in the morning probably hating myself
I'd be waking up, feeling satisfied but guilty as hell

Missy:

But baby there you go again, there you go again, making me love you
And I stopped using my head, using my head, let it all go
Got you stuck on my body, on my body like a tattoo
And now I'm feeling stupid, feeling stupid, crawling back to you
 

All:

So I cross my heart, and I hope to die,
That I'll only stay with you one more night
And I know I've said it a million times
But I'll only stay with you one more night

Sarah:

Yeah baby give me one more night
Yeah baby give me one more night
Yeah baby give me one more night

Kierstin:

But baby there you again, there you again making me love you
Yeah I stopped using my head, using my head let it all go
Got you stuck on my body, on my body like a tattoo
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Sarah and Missy, Kierstin doing harmonies:

So I cross my heart and I hope to die
That I'll only stay with you one more night
And I know I've said it a million times
But I'll only stay with you one more night

(Yeah baby give me one more night)

So I cross my heart, and I hope to die, that I'll only stay with you one more night
And I know i've said it a million times
But I'll only stay with you one more night

Sarah:

I don't know,

Kierstin:

whatever....

 

the music cuts out and we all high five, we look up to see the boys in the other room just full out staring at us. guess they didnt expect us to do that.

``well... uhm, that was amazing!`` Jake says shaking his head out of a trance of somesort. ``i thought you said they wouldnt take it seriously.`` jake says covering his mic but we still hear him

``we didnt think they would actually have it that good!`` i hear Zayn yell in the background

``well they just blew me away.`` we hear another voice say, it was Simon. i huge smile plasters itself on my face as he comes to a point where we can see him and he is smiling down at the three of us. ``well done girls, you were right Missy, they are amazing.`` and with that he walks away.

``wait... what does he mean you were right?`` Sarah asks me

``i guess you will find out.`` i giggle before placing my headset down and skipping out of the booth. i jump into Harrys arms as i skip into the next room

``that was amazing.`` he says to me hugging me tightly

``thanks.`` i beam up at him. still clinging to him like a little child.

the door opens and i quickly jump down from Harrys arms as Simon and another man come into the room. Sarah and Keirstin also join us standing behind the boys as if the two men were going to bite their heads off.

``play it back jake.`` Simon says before taking a seat next to jake at the control panel and the other man standing next to Simon with a skeptical face.

Jake hits play and the cover of One More Night that the girls and i just did comes on. no editing just us and the music. by the time the song ends the man is smiling and Simon is smiling smuggly at him.

``i think... we just found One Directions new opening act.`` the man says looking at Sarah, Kierstin and i with a big smile. i look over to see Sarah and Kierstin looking absolutely gobsmacked.

``are you for real?!`` Sarah says stunned

``yes... what do you ladies say?`` Simon says chuckling at Sarahs outburst

``yes! yes! and yes again!`` Kierstin says jumping up and down with Sarah.
