12. Speechless


I looked into my hands, placed there was a microphone. A microphone that gave me the opportunity to complete one of my life dreams of performing at the O2. I didn't think I was ready for this yet but I couldn't let this once in a lifetime opportunity slip away. I looked at Harry for reassurance, he also had acquired a microphone and in his eyes I could see that he was almost as nervous as me. "I'll do it," I said.

"Are you sure?" Ed asked shocked. I could tell he didn't think I was going to say yes.

"Don't question me or I might change my mind." I replied cheekily.

"Right," Ed said, "if you're sure, I'll call you two on just before the tweets, then you can read out tweets with me and then Harry, you can perform your usual and Ella, do you want to sing Give me love with me?" I nodded. Wow. I had came tonight to enjoy an Ed Sheeran concert as a fan and nothing more but now I was going to actually be on the stage of the O2 at the Ed Sheeran concert performing in front of thousands of people. I couldn't get my head around it. I went to ask Ed an question but he was gone.

Me and Harry made our way to the wings. I saw Ed standing on stage, just him and his guitar singing 'small bump'. That song always got to me, it really upset me, I didn't know whether it was the words or Ed's sweet voice singing it or a mixture of both but it always made me cry. This time was no different. "You're just a small bump unborn for four months then torn from life, maybe you where needed up there but we're unaware that's why." Ed sung in his moving voice and, as usual, a little tear started to form in the corner of my eye however, I just tried to keep the tears back to avoid ruining my make-up just before I went on stage at the O2. That was one of the last things I wanted at the moment.

I looked out at the audience for the first time from the wings. All I could see was a massive crowd full of screaming Ed Sheeran fans as far as the eye could see. It was at this that the enormity of what I was about to do really hit me. My legs turned to jelly and I started to panic. I felt a reassuring hand on my shoulder, I looked up and saw Harry. He masked his anxiety with a smile and I smiled back. "The one of us that get the quietest roar from the crowd," I said with a smile, "has to play for McDonald's after the show." Harry replied with a smile and I knew that that meant challenge excepted. Bring it on.

The concert continued and then our time came. Ed made a hand gesture at us from on stage and I strutted on after Harry. Wow. I didn't know just how else to describe this. The crowd was unbelievable and I was completely overwhelmed by it. Wow, wow, wow!

Ed, Harry and I had a conversation and then started reading out tweets but it wasn't until the last tweet that I really started paying attention. The tweet read 'I really love you and your music, today is my 19th birthday, do u fancy coming out for a drink with me and a mate after the show?' The tweet wasn't much different than some of the others but it was the twitter name that really got my attention. It read 'may_rosalind'. I knew her, I was in a band with her before she moved to go to a different sixth form college, I'd hardly seen her since.

After the tweets were all finished, it was Harry's time to sing. He and Ed sang little things and Ed played it on his guitar, they sounded so good and Harry kept looking at me and reminding me of that night in the club when we made up.

Once the last line had been sung, the audience applauded and I decided that it was going to be me paying for McDonalds after the show- the roar from the crowd that Harry and Ed got was almost impossible to beat, especially as they were both successful recording artists and I was just a girl who had only been known for about a week and only because of my boyfriend.

Me and Harry stepped off the stage into one of the wings whilst Ed sang Lego house. I listened in awe as Ed sang with his beautiful voice. But the song ended all to fast and I knew what was coming next- it was time for my performance. I stepped onto the stage, shaking with anxiousness and excitement, I didn't know what to expect, where the crowd going to like me? Would I get a good reaction. I heard Ed start playing the introduction, I took a deep in and started to sing......

~ED'S P.O.V~

I started to play the introduction to give me love as I watched a very nervous Ella get ready to sing, she took a deep breath in, lifted the microphone to her lips and started to sing. "Give me love like him, cause lately I've been waking up alone," she sang, her voice ringing out like an angel.

That 4 minutes was the quietest I had ever heard a sell out arena be than ever before in my life. Everyone was completely overwhelmed by her sweet voice including me, we were all speechless!


I finished singing the song and for the first time I realised that Ed had failed to join in singing with me. The audience was completely silent which I thought meant that not a single one of them had enjoyed my performance. But after about 5 seconds the audience burst out in a roaring cheer and half of them where on their feet. It was the best feeling ever, a flood of happiness filled my body from head to toe. Harry kissed me on the cheek, and I heard a whisper in my ear, "I'm paying for McDonald's after the show," I smiled and winked at him. This night was one of the best of my whole entire life! ______________________________________________________________________________

This is another quite long chapter to make up for all the time it take me to write them. So anyway, Ella has managed to make the whole crowd at the O2 arena speechless with her singing. Where will her career in the music industry go from here? And what will happen in McDonald's? Will it all kick off? Or will it just be a normal night in the fast food restaurant? -Jess xxx
