28. Welcome to a New Beginning

I never really thought that my dreams could ever come true. Auditioning for the X Factor was just something my mom told me one day in my music room. I never thought I'd even get past the audition. I went from writing songs in my little music room to performing in the O2 and Wembley Arena. I performed in Kelly Rowland's house in front of her and Taylor Swift. Millions of people had auditioned to try and get to where I was and I had Kelly Rowland telling me that she wanted me. She wanted me to go through to the Live Shows. She wanted me to achieve my dreams and be successful, and I couldn’t even believe it.

"Are you serious?" I gasped, my hands flying to my mouth as tears pooled into my eyes. There was no holding them back. Hell, I was lucky to hold them in for that long. Kelly smiled at me and nodded and a few tears streamed down my face in disbelief. Kelly let out a laugh as I smiled, shaking my head in disbelief. I scooted over to her, wrapping my arms around her in which she gladly returned the surprise hug.

"Thank you," She whispered to me, rubbing my back soothingly. We pulled apart from the embrace and looked at each other as I sniffed, wiping some tears away, "You're amazing, babe, in so many ways and I can't wait to see you go through this and I get to be the one who's with you the entire time. I believe in you, Briana. I know you can do this."

"Thank you so much," I managed out. She just smiled.


It was unreal. I felt numb but it was because I was so excited. I didn't even think about the fact that I was once wondering if I would make it through or not as lucky as I am know that I was going through. But it seemed so long ago when I was debating it. I walked over to where Dermot was waiting for me with a smile. I immediately rushed over to him, hugging him as he chuckled, congratulating me.

"I remember waiting in the audition room with you and your family like it was yesterday. How do you feel?" Dermot asked as we stood side-by-side, the cameras filming us. I let out a laugh, the smile on my lips permanent and I knew perfectly well that I would probably go to sleep and wake up with that same exact smile.

"I'm amazed. Overwhelmed maybe? It seemed like so long ago I was only auditioning. This is all so unreal and I don't know what I did to deserve this. I'm just.. very grateful that I've gotten this far. I never in a million years thought this would happen to someone like me. Just an average girl.”

"How do you think everyone back home is going to feel?" He questioned.

"Oh gosh, I don't know. Proud? Happy? Excited for me?" I laughed lightly and he smiled.

"Well why don't you call them up?" He suggested. It seemed like forever as I dialed my home phone number. Dermot was standing beside me, chuckling at my shaking fingers. I was excited and nervous at the same time. How would I even break the news to them that I had made it? What would they say? As I pressed the 'call' button, my heart began to thump against my chest, threatening to jump out.

"Hello?" My mum's voice echoed through the speaker of my phone. I smiled, looking at Dermot as he beckoned to the phone.

"Hi mum," I greeted.

"Bri!" My mum cheered happily.

"Guess what?" I asked as I scratched the back of my neck gently, biting my lip and then dropping my free hand. I glanced at my phone, basically staring at it as if it would hurry my mum up to replying to me.

"What?" She asked slowly and nervously. She had no idea. She didn't know if I was going through or not. Oh boy would she be excited.

"I got through to the Live Shows," I admitted. Instantly, I was met with her cheering and screaming into the phone. I could picture her jumping up and down. In the kitchen, most likely, cooking dinner. My dad would come rushing in in confusion and then he would shout for Jonathan, Bella, and Jason and they'd hear the news and they'd be dancing around the kitchen. I heard my dad's voice in the background and laughed as I heard my mom scream to him excitedly.

"We're so proud of you, baby! So proud! We knew you could do it!" My mom was cheering.

"That's my girl! That's my little girl! We're so proud of you, darling!" My dad agreed just as loudly. I was laughing and so was Dermot, a smile on his face. I told my parents I had to go but I'd call them later. I bid them a goodbye and then hung up, shaking my head in disbelief.

"Well welcome to a new beginning, Briana," Dermot smiled.
