9. Along the way


    ************Two Weeks Later***********

Liam’s P.O.V.

            I look across the room at Tori, she’s sitting on the coach in the corner singing quietly. She looks up and sees that I’m staring at her so I quickly look down. We’re all waiting patiently for the results of are performances, I’m really nervous. I notice Zayn has left the spot he was standing in and I don’t see him sitting anywhere else so I walk to the restroom hoping to find him. When I open the door I see Zayn leaning over the counter with head in his hands. I walk over to him and sit on the counter, he looks up. He looks so nervous and scared that his face has turned really pale. “What’s wrong Zayn?” I ask, hoping I can help him calm down a bit. He says “I know I’m not going to make it, I didn’t get up and dance with everybody else. I’m so stupid and when I finally went up to dance it was so terrible, I could see disappointment on Simons face. I screwed up my only chance of becoming something big and having my dream come true.” He looked like he was about to cry. In an attempt to comfort him I say “Zayn you’ll do fine, it’s not so much about the dancing. It’s about your singing and you did amazing with that.” I see the corner of his mouth smile a little “thanks Liam” he says. Then we hear an announcement on the speaker above saying that it’s time to face the results and for everyone to go to the waiting room. Zayn and I look at each other with nervous expressions and leave the restroom. When we get to the waiting room we see people leaving for their results and see on a small TV screen who made it and who didn’t. After about ten minutes of this I hear a familiar name, Tori Guaden. She walks out and I see her appear on stage, the judges talk for a while and then they tell the group of people she’s with that they have made it to the judge’s houses. I smile, I’m so happy for her, she deserves to go on, I even think she could win the competition. I’ve been so busy thinking and tuning out the voices of people around me that I don’t hear the judges call my name. People around me are patting my arm and back as if to encourage me and I realize it’s my turn. I look back at Zayn and he smiles at me, it’s not a long walk to the stage but it feels like miles to me. Nicole is speaking to us about how far we’ve come and then six words come out of her mouth that makes me feel paralyzed, “I’m sorry, you didn’t make it.” I close my eyes, how could this happen. My heart stops and I feel sick, but I walk off stage and into a big room where I see people crying and celebrating.

 I’m sitting on the floor when someone walks up to me. It’s Zayn, he slides down the wall onto the floor next to me. It takes one look at his face to know he didn’t make it either. We sit n the same spots for a long time, then a lady comes up to us, asking if we would come back on stage for a moment. I’m wondering what they could possibly want and look at Zayn for an answer but see he’s just as confused as I am. When we get on stage Simon asks us to stand in groups, I’m with Zayn, and three boys I haven’t seen yet, Louis, Liam, and Niall. After a moment Simon tells us that we are advancing to the judge’s houses as we are now. I’m confused but then I smile and hug the person next to me and smile. I’m not out of the competition and neither is Zayn.

Zoe’s P.O.V.

            I’d been getting an occasional text from Tori or Liam but never Zayn, I had watched them at the judges houses and on the live shows. I remember being shocked that Zayn and Liam had been put into a band, now known as One Direction and they are amazing. Their performances and video diaries amazed me each week, I would be so awkward. All three of them have made it to the semi finals and the show is on tonight. I haven’t done much besides watch the X factor since they left. I got a job at a restaurant to save money for when Tori is done with the X Factor and we move into a small apartment together. I don’t know what will happen between me and Zayn, hopefully we can be friends again. I run downstairs to the coach where I turn on the TV, right when I get to the right channel The X Factor intro comes on.

            At the end of the show I find myself wondering what would happen if one of them won the show, would I still move in with Tori, or would we not be able to see each other again? I thought about these things for a long time but stopped myself before I really started to worry. My phone vibrates and I pick it up, it’s from Tori and says “Hey, what did you think of the show?” I reply “It was so great! You all did amazing, how are you not famous yet?!?!?” She knows I'm having a hard time here without them and she always has a way of cheering me up. I drift off to sleep, dreaming about that last moment I had with Zayn.
