19. What???

I rested my back against the wall as tears poured down my cheeks. I pulled my knees up to my chest, placing my forehead to my knees as a sob erupted from my throat. I hugged my knees to my chest, creating my little ball of comfort.

 

I don't know how long I sat there crying. I don't even know what it was that came over me. I stood up, dropping the blanket from my shoulders as I stormed down the hall with tears in my eyes. I slammed open the door to the music room. I walked over to the piano and I plopped onto the stool. I looked at all the music that Niall and I had written together still sitting on top of the piano. I took it up furiously and shred it to pieces. Loud sobs now coming out of me. Terina g the music was like ripping up every memory I had with him. I was so sad and angry. After all of the pages were destroyed and the words were torn up, I didn't need any direction. I didn't need anybody to tell me what to do. My fingers danced across the keys as soon as I let them.

 

"All you are is mean," I sang as my fingers hit the keys angrily, "And a liar," I growled, "And pathetic and alone in life and mean and mean and mean. But someday I'll be living in a big old city and all you're ever gonna be is mean."

 

There was clapping at the last pound against the keys. My head snapped up. My eyes landed on my mom who walked over to me with a sad smile. I was choked up on my words, not knowing what to say to her, "That's a nice little song you started writing. I bet it's gonna be at the top of the charts someday."

 

"I'm mad."

 

"I can tell and I'm proud of you, baby. I'm so proud of you for doing this all and staying so strong."

 

"Yes, crying is very bold."

 

"Those tears mean nothing compared to the heart you have," She stated. I looked up at her curiously, "No matter how many tears you cry, darling that will never make you weak. You know, your grandmother once told me that crying shows strength. It means you held it in for so long that you needed to release it. She used to tell me it every time my friends were mean to me."

 

"Mom-"

 

"I don't want to hear about you and Missy. I know what you're going through, baby, and I'm glad you told her what was on your mind. You have the right to tell her. As much as I love that girl, you deserved to get it off your chest. I just want you to know that you're stronger than you think."

 

"Thanks, I think?" She laughed at my response and smiled at me, wrapping her arm around me.

 

"Now this song of yours, do you think you could finish it?" She inquired curiously.

 

"It was just stupid words," I shook my head, looking back at the keys that my fingers rested on.

 

"Really? I kind of liked it. Plus, it would give you a head start after you win the X Factor. The auditions are next Thursday so I was thinking you would sing a song that showed the best side of your voice. Something that's really beautiful and will get everyone's attention, but when doesn't your voice do that?" She inquired with a playful smile and nudge.

 

"A lot. I mean I don't kno- AUDITION?" I screamed as my eyes went wide with realization at what she said. She instantly laughed and smiled at me. I slid from the bench, letting out a loud scream as she laughed, just watching me with amusement as I bounced around the room. Nothing else was on my mind but that.

 

No Niall. No Missy. Nothing. The only thing on my mind was music.

 

"Oh my gosh, what do I sing? What if they don't like me? Can you imagine me on the stage, mum? Can you imagine me being on TV? Oh my gosh, I have to go call Alex! She's going to be thrilled!" I said all too quickly. I kissed her cheek and took off. I heard her laughter ringing after me as I sprinted to my room, dialing Alex's number.

 

"Hey Bri," Alex greeted coolly when she picked up. I immediately screamed and I heard her groan and then laugh, "What's up?"

 

"I HAVE AN AUDITION NEXT WEEK!" I shouted into the phone. I was instantly greeted with a scream and then I heard a bunch of background noises and could picture my way too hyperactive cousin bouncing around her room with excitement ten times better than mine.

 

"I'M GOING! I'M STANDING BACKSTAGE! THAT'S GREAT!"

 

This… This was what I wanted. As I sat there with a smile talking to my mom as Alex came over, running in and hugging me excitedly, I knew that this was what I wanted. I was going to audition for a show and jumpstart my career. The career I wanted. I wanted to be a musician. I wanted to be famous. I wanted to sell out stadiums someday. I wanted it all. And I would have it. Oh yes, I would stop at nothing to have it all.
