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...


16. So Close


**Day Of Finals**


.:~Louis’ P.O.V.~:.


It was time. We were about to go on stage. Matt was just finishing up. We were going to sing two songs; Moments and What Makes You Beautiful. I saw everyone who was important to me out in the crowd, well almost everyone. I think lately I have been going a little crazy, because I’ve been seeing Rachel everywhere in San Francisco since Saturday.

One of the stage workers handed me a microphone and told me it was time to sing. We started with Moments. After we finished we got a standing ovation and people chanted 1D 1D 1D!!!

Next we started WMYB. It was a song on YouTube that we sang two years ago, but most of the people knew the song so they sang with us. I had a really good feeling that we could win this. When we finished, I thought I would go deaf with all the cheering. The guys and I all hugged. Simon actually came on stage with us.

“So, who here tonight will be voting for One Direction?” He yelled to the crowed and cheers were coming out.

“Well good luck boys. I’m sure everyone will love to see 1D win.”


When we got back to the house, we went straight to bed because tomorrow we had a huge night. Our lives are going to change forever


**The next night**

The guys and I were back stage kinda hanging out backstage but I noticed they kept kinda peeking out and when their heads came back they looked worried. Tonight what we got to do is pick a song, and then Simon, as he was our mentor picked duet partner’s for us. Matt got to sing with Michael Buble, they sang “Just Haven’t Met You Yet” I still wasn’t sure what duet I would pick, we kinda get them off the top of our heads and most singers would know them, so, yea.

Liam was up next. He picked the song Airplanes and it ended up being Victoria Justice who he sang with. He really loves her voice so he was pretty happy. They were awesome.

Afterwards it was Zayn, he chose the song Remind Me, because believe it or not, Zayn kinda liked the country thing, but he gave it his own twist. He sang with Taylor Swift. They were really interesting because they had two totally different voices.

When Niall’s turn came along, he chose Give Your Heart a Break and lucky enough his duet partner was Demi Lovato and they rocked everyone’s socks.

Last before me was Harry, he chose Promiscuous and his duet partner was Lady Gaga and Harry looked like he had so much fun. Now it’s my turn. When I got on stage, Simon was there waiting for me. He asked the other boys to come out too.

“So Louis, do you have any idea who your duet partner might be?” Simon asked me.

“Not a clue.”

“Well she is not the most famous person in the world, but a few people in the crowd may know her. With your love for music, you might. So what song did you choose?”

“Umm” I thought for a split second “Good Time.”

“Good choice. Before we start, I would thank your five friends here, because they somewhat kinda helped me with my decision. But mostly you helped me pick.”
“Okay, thanks,” I still had no clue who it could be.

Simon turned to the other boys,

“Will you lads come down to the judges stand with me? I think you will want to watch this.” He smiled.

When they all got to their seats, the music started playing. Tonight I would sing my heart out, weather it meant something or not.

“Woke up on the right side of the bed What's up with this Prince song inside my head? Hands up if you're down to get down tonight Cuz it's always a good time. Slept in all my clothes like I didn't care Hopped into a cab, take me anywhere I'm in if you're down to get down tonight Cuz it's always a good time”

Now my mysterious duet partner would appear. I didn’t turn around I just looked out into the crowd, except when the voice started to sing, I couldn’t help but turn around because out of all the voices in the world, this one was the most familiar to me;

“Good morning and good night I wake up at twilight It's gonna be alright We don't even have to try It's always a good time”

I heard the guys cheer and live in shock. I was in so much shock I almost forget to sing. I sang, but in my head I was thinking OH MY GOD

“Doesn't matter when It's always a good time then” I sang as I walked up and put my arm around her and then she sang

“Doesn't matter where It's always a good time there” I kissed her hair.

“We don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time” We finished the song

Everyone cheered, but the lads were cheering the loudest.

Simon came up on stage.

“So Louis, do you want to introduce us to your friend who is really talented?”
“X Factor, meet Rachel Stevenson.” Everyone cheered.

“How did you find her? How did you know about her?” I asked Simon.

He smiled and said, “I’m not an idiot. Sometimes I could see you watching home videos of her singing and then when your friends came down to ask me if we could invite Rachel down here and they told me the whole story of you tow, I knew I had to be amazing as always.”

Rachel turned and faced me and kissed me. I still couldn’t believe she was here.

“Now it’s time to find out our victors. So Matt, will you come on stage?”
Matt came on and Rachel started to walk off, but Simon stopped her.

“You stay. Can we also have Matt’s lovely wife Emma on stage as well as Denise, Sarah and Raelene.” They all came up and Emma held Matt’s hand, and Rae did the same with Zayn, Sarah with Harry and Denise with Liam. I grabbed Rachel’s hand and Rachel reached her other hand out to Niall.

Simon went back to his seat and Dermont, the host came on stage.

“Well, first of all, congratulations to all of you for making it this far, but we can only have one victor. So, the winner of this year’s X Factor is…”

I couldn’t hear anything; I was in too much shock. I could barely see, the only thing I saw were the guys jumping up and down around me and then I felt Rachel kiss me and I came back to the real world

Oh my god we just won the X Factor.
