Dream on


4. Studio A

My arms hugged my pillow tightly with my face planted into it. I was sound asleep when I felt someone shake me softly. I rubbed my face into the pillow before slowly turning my head to see Harry.
"What?" I asked groggily.
"I made breakfast." He said. I could smell the scent of pancakes and waffles all the way from the kitchen.
"I'll be right there."
"Okay." He smiled and walked out. I ripped the covers off of me and walked to the bathroom to wash up. I put on a jacket still in my pajama pants and tank top and made my way down the hall.
"Morning!" Louis chirped. I yawned before replying.
"Morning." I took a seat at the table and looked at all the food taking up space.
"Is this all for us?" I asked.
"Yep." Harry said from the stove. There was a huge tray filled with pancakes and Belgium waffles, a bowl of sliced fruits, a carton of orange juice, and 2 syrup bottles. I poured myself some juice and took 2 waffles. Louis was already piling his plate with three of everything and Harry started doing the same when he sat down. I ate pretty quickly and was done before they finished their first pancake.
"Wow you're quick." Louis said. I shrugged.
"I guess."
"Paul called; he said that you'll be recording your version of some of our songs today." Harry said.
"I don't know." He said.
"Did he say which ones?" Harry shook his head while eating. I excused myself from the table and took a shower and got dressed into something cute but comfortable. Once everything was cleaned up and the boys were ready, Louis drove us to the studio for my first recording session.
"This is so exciting!" I squealed.
"You'll have a lot of fun." Louis said from the wheel. He got a phone call and put it on speaker.
"Hey El." He said.
"Hi babe, how's everything going?" I cringed at the sound of her voice. I never thought I'd see the day I'd hear Louis Tomlinson's girlfriend and just now I got really jealous. Probably because he's my favorite and I'm a fan.
"Fine, just taking Victoria to her recording session." He said.
"Is that Simon's new project?" I gave his phone the death stare.
"Yeah, she's actually going to be doing a lot of things with us. She's really talented." Harry looked back from the passengers' seat and noticed my stare.
"You alright?" I looked up alarmed.
"Yep." He looked away and I could feel my cheeks get hot from embarrassment.
"I'll let you go; I have to finish up something for school. I'll stop by later tonight." She said.
"Okay, love you."
"Love you too." He hung up and pulled in front of Sony. We all got out and it was only the three of us plus Paul, who was meeting us, that would be there. The others had the day off and Liam went with his girlfriend as did Zayn, and Niall went to hang out with some friends. I walked to Studio A and was introduced to the producer and my new manager.
"Victoria this is Ryan, he'll be your vocal coach and producer." Ryan was handsome and only in his mid 30's, he had brown eyes and spiked blonde hair and was built. We exchanged smiles and shook hands.
"And this is Kathy, your manager."
"Hi! It's such an honor to be working with you." Kathy was young; mid 20's, attractive with blonde hair and blue eyes and skinny. She hugged me and hugged back. I looked over at Harry who didn’t seem interested at all, which actually surprised me.
"Let's get to work shall we?" Ryan said. He explained to me how everything worked. How to set up with the equipment, what to look for, and hand signals just in case something wasn’t right. I walked into the recording booth and got situated while Harry, Louis, and everyone else watched from outside. Ryan pressed a button so I could hear him through the sound proof glass.
"Ready?" I gave a thumbs up completely forgetting I didn’t know what song I was singing. The music started to play and I knew what it was so I didn’t worry about it anymore.
"You're insecure. Don't know what for. You're turning heads when you walk through the do-o-or." As I was singing I could see Harry and Louis dancing in place to the song and Ryan and Kathy liking what they were hearing. Paul was listening intently and didn’t show much emotion. Harry's solo came on and I knew I had to nail it.
"Baby, you light up my world like nobody else. The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed. But, when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell…."
The song ended after one more chorus before the music stopped.
"That was great!" Ryan said through a microphone.
"I'm gonna play another song before we review and edit." The music started to play and I could tell it was "Moments". Louis looked uncomfortable but then smiled when I started to sing. I poured my heart and soul into this one since it was a deep song. When it was over I took off the headphones and walked out. Louis hugged me as soon as I stepped out.
"That was amazing." He said softly.
"You think?" I asked.
"Absolutely." I hugged him back before letting go. Harry was standing by Kathy staring at me. He came over and gave me a hug as well but wouldn’t let go.
"You can let go now." I said.
"Oh right, sorry." He said letting go.
"I listened to the first one and I honestly don't think we need to edit it." Ryan said. He was silent for another minute while listening to something.
"The other one just needs a little tune up but nothing to big. You're like a pro at this already." I blushed.
"That's good." Just then Simon walked in.
"Hello everyone." He said closing the door.
"Listen to this." Ryan handed him a set of headphones and Simon was silent until the song was over.
"That was great, really great. Uh, guys can head out now while I set up some things with Kathy here. Victoria, great work." He said.
"Thanks." I said.

We drove back to the apartment and collapsed on the couch.
"I didn’t think you could sing like that." Harry said.
"I guess I was just born that way." I joked. We turned on the TV and started to watch "Friends" when someone knocked on the door.
"I'll get it." Louis said heading towards the door. I watched him jog over and then looked back at the TV. Harry was spread across the long couch and I sat in the corner near him.
"Hey!" I heard Louis say.
"Hi!" I heard a female's voice, then the sound of a kiss. Harry looked up over the couch.
"Oh, it's Eleanor." He said. I looked over too to see a girl as tall as Louis walk in as he closed the door. They both walked over to the couch and I could her and Louis had something "special".
"Hi, I'm Eleanor." She said in a sweet voice.
"I'm Victoria." I waved.
"So you're the new pop star? I thought you would be older." She said. I shook my head.
"Nope." I said popping the P.
"How old are you?" She asked.
"Aren't you from America?" I nodded.
"And you flew all the way out from there?" I shrugged.
"I had no choice." There was an awkward silence.
"So, uh, El you want to get something to eat?" Louis asked.
"Sure." He motioned her to the door.
"We'll be back later!" Louis called out to us.
"Bye." Harry and I said in unison. Now it was just me and Harry alone in the apartment.
