Take Me Home

Rachel has always been alone in life. She doesn't fit in at her school and no one shares the same passion as our little American, a love for music. But when she meets Niall, Zayn, Harry, Liam and Louis, everything changes. This is a story of love, heartbreak and how far you are willing to travel to be with the one you love...


13. Off to "New Jersey"


.:~Liam’s P.O.V.~:.


Oh my god. We are up next. We were gonna sing a personal song that the five of us wrote. It’s called Stand Up. We walked out on the stage and thousands, maybe millions cheered.

“What’s are your names lads?” Simon asked.

“I’m Liam,” I said

“I’m Niall”

“My name is Harry”

“And I guess that makes me Zayn.” He said and the entire crowd giggled.

“And what will you sing for us?” Simon asked

“We wrote a song called Stand Up.” Harry said

“Wow, you wrote your own song. You must feel very confident” Cheryl Cole said with a smile, “So start whenever you’re ready”
The music started to play. I opened my mouth and started to sing

“From the moment I met you, everything changed

I knew I had to get you, whatever the pain”

We were all singing and then the chorus came. My favorite part:

“ Oh oh ohh oh

So put your hands up

Oh oh ohh oh

'Cause it’s a stand up

I won’t be leaving ‘til I finish stealing every piece of your heart

Every piece of your heart”

Then Louis sang. I could tell by the way he sang, he was thinking of Rachel:
“I know your heart’s been broken, but don’t you give up

I’ll be there, yeah I know it, to fix you with love”

And then Zayn finished:

“I’m only here, because you stole my heart”

Everyone clapped. We even got some standing ovations.

“Well that was just,” Simon started “completely and utterly fantastic. It’s a yes from me”

We all freaked out.

“Yes from me too” Cheryl said.

“By the way most of you sung that song, I’m guessing you were thinking of someone special.”
“Yeah,” We all said.

“Well that’s good. Because the way you guys sing, these girls and millions of other girls, they are defiantly going to feel the same if they don’t already. I say yes!”

“What is your bands name?” Simon asked.

We all looked at each other and nodded.

“One Direction” Zayn said

“Well lads,” Simon continued, “I think One Direction is the next big thing.”

We walked off stage trying to keep our cool, but the minute we got off

“OH MY GOD!!!!” Niall screamed

“We did it!” Harry exclaimed

“I knew we could,” I said


For the next few weeks, we did bootcamp and went to the judges’ houses and we got through. Now we had a few weeks off. I told the lads I was going to go to New Jersey for a few days because I had family up there. The guys said they would stay behind because they wanted to practice, but they still said I should go. So I said goodbye to the guys and hopped on a plane.


.:~Rachel’s P.O.V.~:.


Denise and I were hanging out at the coffee shop. She asked me about my life back in England and that kind of stuff, because now I felt a little better abut having left so she could bring it up. Than she said

“Okay, there is this guy who keeps walking back and forth in front of the shop and it’s kinda freaking me out”

I turned around and saw him, than shot my head back to Denise. It looked so much like Liam, but why would he be here.

“Is everything okay????” Denise asked, looking slightly confused

“Yea, I just thought I saw I guy I thought I knew.”

“Oh shit, he’s coming in. This guy is hot, but he kinda freaks me out.”

He came in and walked past our booth. I recognized that back of the head. I stood up.


He turned around.

“Oh my god!!! Rachel!”

I ran up and hugged him.

“What the hell are you doing here? Did the other guys come? Oh my god, I can’t believe it’s you!!”

“Okay, well the guys and I took your advice and auditioned for the X Factor, and we are in for the live performances as One Direction. We have three weeks off, so I decided to come down here, because I had to talk to you. And the other guys didn’t come. They don’t know I’m here and-” He glanced over at Denise “Hello love, what’s your name?”

“I’m Denise” She was blushing. It was kinda funny.

“Hello. I’m Liam” He kissed her hand.


“Um anyways, Rachel, I really have to talk to you, kinda in private. I’m going to go check into my hotel. I’m staying at the Hilton, so come by, okay?”
I laughed.

“Liam, are you kidding? I’m not going to let you stay at one of the shittiest hotels when you came all the way from San Francisco to see me. I missed you and so did my mom. You can stay with us.” I tuned to Denise, “Do you mind if I take Liam home?”

“Yea sure, go ahead” Denise said.

“I rented a car, so I’ll go get it,” Liam said walking out.

“Rachel, please find out his relationship status.” Denise commanded, blushing.

“Will do, but I’m pretty sure he’s single” I winked as I walked out.


I got back into Liam’s car. We hugged again and he gave me a little kiss.

“So about your friend Denise…” he started

“Yea? What about her?” I asked with a smile.

“Is she single?”

“Yea, but she wouldn’t mind if you changed that” I said laughing, he pulled out and drove to my place.

I walked in the house and yelled

“Mom!!! Guess who is here?”

“Who is i-” My mom’s face lit up “LIAM!!!”

She ran up to him and hugged

“Can he stay here for a few days well he’s in town before going back to San-Fran?”
“Yes, of course, Liam, you and the other guys are always welcome”
