6. Chapter Four

Liam's POV

I needed to concentrate....but I couldn't. Harry kept catching my eye...how did I not notice him before? Then, there was Louis....Honestly, I wanted to talk to them....really bad. Things ended bad between us lads...we haven't talked since that day. I just couldn't though. I needed this...I couldn't blow it. No way. I just ignored him the best I could and carried on. Soon it was going to be time to see who was staying and who was going. It was time to make my last impression.

 

Harry's POV

I was already stressed enough...I didn't need this. I did miss Liam...and especially Louis. He was my best mate. Liam...I-I hurt him really bad. More than he knows...I tried to stay focused...I tried to keep my mind off of it. It was my last chance...I had to make it. If I didn't...well that wasnt an option... Louis's POV It was hard for me. I kept singing though...I just lost myself in the music and did my best. The thoughts of Liam and Harry still nagged me. I was closest to them. I always did wonder what happened to them....small world I guess. I just wanted this so bad that I skipped over the fact and sang my heart out.

 

Zayn's POV

I couldn't even go back on stage at boot camp. The sight of Niall brought it all back. Along with my doubts. I can't believe Niall was here...I didn't think he was serious about singing...I started to get up to go fetch my mum to leave when I felt an arm on my shoulder. I turned to see Simon. "What are you doing out here?" He asked me, looking into my eyes, seemingly my soul. "I'm not cut for this..." I replied. It wasnt a complete lie...."You're talented. We can make you cut out for this, now get out there Zayn. You can't throw a chance like this away," Simon said smiling and leaving me to think about it. He was right I couldn't. This was once in a lifetime...I got up and walked on stage with a new sense of purpose. I had to win.

 

Nialls POV

I couldn't even think about Zayn...it distracted me too much so I just sang and sang and sang. I left the work an entered the music. I smiled and raised my confidence. I had it in the bag. I could do this..."All contestants in the boys teens category please line up on stage," one of the stage ladies said. I walked on the stage knowing it was time...the moment of truth. "Hello," Simon greeted us all before starting, "We will be deciding what boys will be going through to my house and which will be eliminated," he said getting serious. "The first three boys going through are Aaron, James, and Daniel. Good job, you guys may leave the stage," Simon said smiling at them as they celebrated. "The last two going through are..." It's gotta be me. It's gotta be me.

 

Harry's POV

Only two more spots left....I'm one of them. I'm one of them...I tried to convince myself. I had to stay positive..I had to be confident. This was my last hope...

 

Liam's POV

Only two more...I was sure that I was one of them...I had to be.....there was no other way. I could face a second rejection. Especially since more was on the line for me. This was my life. This was my promise to Liv. If I made it, I could move on...I could be okay...I was one of them.

 

Louis's POV

Two more left, one of them was Louis Tomlinson. I could tell they like me a lot. I was in..I had to be. There was only one other option...back to Doncaster. Back to my drab life..my fake life I built out of the hurt...I was in.

 

Zayn's POV

Two more spots...eight of us on stage. I wasn't sure why I was so nervous....they seemed to legitimately have interest in me....maybe I was one of those spots...or maybe not....probably not...I still hope I am. "The last two in are...Darren and Luke. Congratulations you guys. I'm sorry for all of you who didn't you're all amazing singers, thanks for coming out," Simon said curtly. I start to leave the stage slowly and each breath hurt. I had hope...I knew I couldn't do this..."Wait. Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis, and Harry. Stay back," Simon said loudly. Wait...Liam? Louis? Niall? Harry? No way...

 

Harry's POV

I hear the names and look around at all the lads...Liam's wavy hair, Louis bright eyes, Nialls lopsided grin, and Zayn's perfect hair. I was in disbelief...they were all here..."I want you all to form a group. You're all very talented, but unfortunately there wasnt enough space. We loved all of you an you really proved yourselves. Your voices are very cohesive, so in order to stay on the X-Factor UK, you will have to become a group. What do you say?" He asked looking at us. I wasn't sure how I felt..I wasn't her if we could all make a group. It would be too hard...but I wanted this so bad it hurt. I've never wanted anything more than this..except Libby, but that was another story. I needed this and found myself nodding. This would be interesting...

 

Liam's POV

He wanted me! He wanted me! And the lads...god how I've missed them...but I wasn't sure I could do this. It would be too hard..I was supposed to move on, not delve deeper into my past. I couldn't do this...but I needed this..I was torn...my dream wasnt ever going to be easy though...I found myself giving a small nod...this was for Liv.

 

Louis's POV

My boys! My lads! I've missed them oh so much. Now I could sing professionally and patch things up between us! This would be good for us. I never hesitated before nodding my consent and smiling widely.

Nialls POV

I needed to sing and if the boys were a part of it, then it could be even better I mean...we could work through everything between us? Right? I hoped so...because I found myself nodding vigorously. I even felt a smile on my face.

 

Zayn's POV

There was no way I could do this. Not if I had to see them everyday..they brought everything I worked so hard to forget come back. They're things ten times harder for me...I wanted to sing thought. Simon like me, and he told me it was only once in a lifetime... "I dunno..." I trailed off nervously. "Come on, Zayn! You can do this! We can do this!" Louis pleaded. I sighed and looked down. This was a hard decision to make. "Zayn, think about everyone else too...it's not just you...we need you," Niall reasoned beside me. I sighed and nodded. He was right, it wasnt just me anymore. It was all of us. "Welcome to the X-Factor UK boys," Simon congratulated.....we better win this..
