Hiding From Me

Skyler has been hiding from herself for years. After a certain accident she moves far away to England where she lives peacefully and what she believes to be happily just making it by. That is until she meets 5 peculiar boys who open her eyes and possibly her past.


1. The Beginnings


She took in a deep breath as the crowd roared and cheer with laughter and praise. Louise finished belting out the end of It’s Gotta Be You by, the now sensational, One Direction. She wasn’t much into the cheesy love-dovey teen songs like this but the crowd loved them. On a spur of the moment decision she had packed up everything and moved to London, leaving her simple and safe home in the Midwest behind, 2 months ago. In that time she had gotten 2 jobs but found that the best paying one was not technically one at all. 3 times a week her and some apartment mates, Louise, Johanna, and Robin, walked down to a park 5 blocks west of their apartment and performed different, well known songs before her first shift at the café. On good days she could make anywhere from 50 to 100 quid. But that was seldom, what made it good and worth it was she was having fun.

“Skyler!’ called Louise with an awkward cough, popping Skyler out of her trance for her to notice she was the only one still holding her “finished” position. Quickly covering up her mistake, Skyler started talking to the crowd.

“Hello everyone! How are you fine people doing today? Some of you know me but if not I’m Skyler and these are my friends Louise, Johanna, and Robin,” she paused for them to wave and take a bow, “As you can tell I’m an American! I’ve been living in your beautiful country for 2 months now and I’m loving it!” Skyler continued on her daily speech about how amazing London is and why she’s singing, Johanna jumped in with her part, and they finished with Louise introducing the next song. Robin didn’t talk, or sing for that matter, but she was an amazing dancer which was needed in a street squad. They began to go into their next song What Makes You Beautiful, again, by One Direction. Skyler scanned the crowd trying to find who would be more likely to give money and play to them. It was the biggest crowd yet and you could literally feed off the intensity.

Then their eyes met.

A chill went down Skyler’s back as she looked straight into ice blue eyes, she looked to their left to find ocean-green colored and as she continued down the row she flinched to see innocent light blue eyes rimmed with a deeper more thoughtful dark blue, deep, wise chocolate brown eyes, and medium brown eyes with freckles and sprinkles of red and gold reminding Skyler of her own.

She knew immediately who they were, and she knew immediately her friends were in trouble. During a brief break in the song, when Robin was dancing, Skyler quickly whispered to Louis and Johanna that they needed to speed up the pace and one by one after their solo bow out and leave. Louise gave her a questioning look but Johanna stopped any questions by just agreeing.

Everyone sang as Skyler sat patiently in the back, after getting Robin to leave, harmonizing as expected and smiling as necessary. Soon it was just her and she finished her last bit of the song. She always finished because she changed it up a bit by slowing it down and dragging it out.

When the last note rang she immediately rushed into her good bye speech “Thank you all again! You were amazing, this was amazing and…” she trailed off noticing the bleach blonde hair beginning to push through the crowd, “…and…and HAVE A GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY!” Skyler yelled with a final bow.

Then she ran.
