3. Singing On Stage

Bridget P.O.V

Sing?! Why did he ask me if I can sing?! I can sing, but I haven't sung since my X-factor run was cut short at the judges house. Ever since then, I never sung anything. Not for talent shows, gigs, or even just around my friends, well actually friend. I knew this wasn't a good idea to come to this performance. I should have just gone to the other ones I've been planning on and move on with my life.

"Oh...No! I sound like a whale giving birth!" I lie hoping that it will get me out of this situation. Unfortunatly, he ignores me and hands me a mic.

"Don't care. Now I'm going to announce you and you will come out and sing whatever song I choose for you. I just want the crowd to be entertained until the boys are ready." The guy told me.

"But I said that I sing like a whale giving birth! And we all know how a whale sounds when it gives birth." I said.

"Like I said before, don't care. Now may I ask your name." He said.

"Bridget Liddle." I tell him.

"Ok then, Bridget, when I say your name, you're on." The stage guy told me as he went off to introduce me. I wait there, anxiously. Not singing for two years, and now I get to sing in front of a bunch of people. Not just a bunch of people, this is being filmed live thanks to Itunes so people can see the performances live. I hear my name being said and I begin to walk onto the stage.

"Umm...hi. I'm Bridget Liddle." I introduce.

I see a hand raised and point to it. "Didn't you try out for X-factor two years ago?"

"Yes, I did." I answer with a squeezy feel in my stomach. Suddenly, I see a little screen light up and I begin to sing the lyrics to the familiar Gotye song.

"Now and then I think of when we were together. Like when you said you felt so happy you could die..." My voice still sounded the same as it was two years ago. Weak, or as I thought at least. I continue on with the chourus. "But you didn't have to cut me off. Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing. And I don't even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough. No you didn't have to stoop so low. Have your friends collect your records and change your number. I guess that I don't need that though. Now you're just somebody that I used to know."  

Niall P.O.V

When the stage lit up with a name, not any but I think I had something to do with it, with a feeling in my gut. "Um, Harry? Does her name seem..." I say, my stomach does a quick flip when someone yells, "Didn't you try out for X-factor two years ago?" Harry seems to have the same look as me. "Yes, I did" She says quietly. The words on the screen showed one of my favorite Gotye songs. I get out my phone and text Paul, "I know this girl! She was my old buddy in the X-factor days!"

When the song ends I see Paul whisper to some of the people who are the iTunes Security. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. I see the girl in tears and run off into the crowd. Everyone started whispering, and some idiot girls were laughing like someone would kill them if they didn't do so. I turn to go tell Zayn to go follow her but he was already out the doors. I slip my hands out of my pockets, and cover my face with them.
