It's time to dance {One Direction}

"Complicated enough to not even tell your best friend? This was why you were acting so strange at the park that day after the flash-mob in Battersea Park! Did he even know you were there? That I was the one his mates ran into shortly after when everything had just turned dark for me for a second."
"Mel it's more than that. Liam and I are together, but Matt can't know ok? He can't know anything about this place. Just as Liam can't know about the crew. You understand?"
"No I don't. I'm your best friend Dani. Your best friend through years, and this is why you've been acting so strange all of a sudden? I knew about x-factor and shut up about it. But this? This is a freaking boy band."
"But you're still here aren't you?"
I guess no matter how good you think you know people, you'll always be surprised at the end when your whole world turns around.


8. Business meeting with Simon


We pulled up in front of the studios. I was still sitting back being all grumpy and just living in my own world, with the headphones safely placed over my ears. 

"Melody we're here." 

I saw the words formed over Zayn's lips, when he looked at me through the mirror, but I couldn't hear him at all. 


I took down my headphones and stared back at him in the mirror with wide eyes. 

"Get out of the car. We're here." 


I held my hands up in defence as I stepped out of the car and entered the new world of the studios and busy business people running around, sipping their coffee in their cheap suits. Yes I said cheap, because neither of these guys had the money to buy themselves a proper suit for this job, it wasn't like they got more money just because they were taking care of up comers and young adults. 

"Sit Melody..." 

I threw myself in the chair across from Simon's desk and saw Zayn disappear out of the door as someone was calling him at the other end of the hall. 

"Coming Lou! Now save some of that pizza for me!" 

The door was being closed and I was now left alone with Simon, who look at me with a very strange expression written all over his face. 

"So Melody..." 

I looked at from my phone. I was texting with everyone from the crew. They kept asking about me and telling me that some of our guys had been taken by the police, and they needed me because no one could reach Matt and they didn't know who had taken him or where he was about to go. 


I looked back down a my phone and continued texting. My thumbs were going nots and I think Simon was getting really tired of that little click noise that showed up for every click and every time and flipped my screen up to get my keyboard out. 

"Could you please put that phone away for a second? This is actually important." 

"Oh... Well since you took me away from my crew, everyone's asking me where I am, telling me I have to pick my friends up at the station and that my boyfriend has gone missing, but continue with your important stuff... I'll just sit here and not think about where my sister and boyfriend and not to mention best friends are." 

"Are you done?" 

"Not quite..." 

"I'll give you 30 seconds to finish texting and then I'll have your phone." 

I moved my fingers faster than possible over the keys and filled out my crew with all the information they could get from my. Obviously I had to keep a lot back from them and I knew that they would worry, but this was how it had to be this time. 

"Well what's it gonna be Melody?" 

Simon held out his hand and I gave in and handed over my phone to him. 

"Now that's what I had hoped." 

He smiled to me, the first smile I had ever seen printed on his face, but it was real. 

"Now first.. How much do you know about One Direction?" 

"Nothing much really. I know they are a band and that Zayn is a part of it. They have never really been my thing, and honestly? I don't have time to watch TV or search them on the Internet. I have the crew and my family to take care off. We train an awful lot." 

"Yeah I can tell. You have a great rhythm and you move just in the ways that we need. We have another dancer, and she's really great. The entire dance crew is great, but we need another girl at her level, and you're just perfect for that part. Though you must know that this is gonna put a lot of pressure on you. Lots of training and a special diet to follow most of the time as well. Performing with this band is no joke, and I'll expect a lot from you, because I know what you can do. Also we expect you to bring something new to the scene some times."

"Who's the dancer?" 

"Let's keep that a surprise for now. Our dance crew is well known but we try our best to keep their identities down, so they won't get offered anything better." 

"I understand. What do you want me to do?" 

"It's hard work and I expect you to take it serious. Meet on time to all of the rehearsals. No coming late! And best of all no public disturbances with dancing." 

"I can't leave my crew." 

"You don't have to leave it. You have to make sure you won't get caught." 

"What else?" 

"Zayn will be your guide. Our other dancer will be your coach. You do as they say without anything getting involved. Also please keep that dance crew of yours out of this." 

"I will. I promise." 

"Good. Now rehearsals are 3 times a week for 3 hours at the time. You'll get paid for rehearsals and tours, and we'll discuss the salary as soon as you get started." 

"Sure. Any rules?" 

"Wear some decent clothes whenever you're dancing. You need to be able to dance in everything and I don't want those 5 teenage boys drooling all over you." 

"Trust me, that only happens once." 

"And no hurting people. I need them to look good whenever we're doing the performances. Also you'll have to travel oversea a couple of times a year." 


"No buts."

"Fine I'll do it." 

"Great. Rehearsals are tomorrow at 11am. Don't be late." 

"What about introducing the band and dancers?" 

"Zayn will introduce you to the rest of the band shortly and you'll be introduced to the dancers tomorrow when you're in class." 

Simon went back to do some paper work as he pointed for me to leave. I was quite confused, but I walked out the door anyway. I looked down at myself and saw that I was wearing a One Direction shirt. This? This was really what they had to cover me up in when they wanted me to follow them.... Unbelievable! 

I went out of the door and closed it behind me just to get caught by a cheesy look from Zayn. 

"It's not funy. I look like a kid in this shirt. Please tell me you have some place where I can change into my other clothes?" 

"Sure. The restroom is right over there." 

He pointed down the hall on a sign that said restroom. I picked my bag up from the floor and ran down to change into some loose jeans with a low waist and a tight tank top. This is also were I for the first time got the chance of getting my shoes back on. I was wearing my favourite Jordans and then put my hair up in a ponytail before I checked my make-up and made myself ready for the introduction of the band. 

"Did you have to take a shit or something? Seriously what are you girls doing out there?" 

"Make-up, changing, going to the toilet, talking, hanging out.... Pretty much everything FYI." 

I rolled my eyes at him and crosses my arms. 

"Are we gonna get going or are you gonna stand there and stare all day?"

I widened my eyes at him, but all I got was a laugh and a small pat on my shoulder as Zayn started walking down the hall we were at. Apparently neither of them were doing anything right now. We entered a room filled with sweets and four noisy teenage boys lying all around. 


Even though Zayn was yelling loudly he still didn't get through to the boys. 


They all stopped whatever they were doing and stared in my direction. Well if Zayn couldn't get their attention someone else had to try... 


"You're welcome." 

I smirked at him and then look at back at the other four boys staring in my direction. 

"Guys this is our new dancer. Her name is Melody. She'll be here for the rehearsals tomorrow, where she'll also meet the rest of the crew." 

They all came up an introduced themselves. I remembered the curly haired boy from the day at Starbucks where he was driving Zayn around. Dani was right when she said his name was Harry, but how did she know these guys? There was something more hidden behind it. Something I didn't know about but intended to find out. I wanted to ask the boys, but as soon I was about to open my mouth Simon stepped up behind us, and told me that there was a car here to take me home or wherever I wanted to go. 

"Is it one of your cars?" 

"Yea of course." 

"Then I'll have to pass. I can't be seen in it. I'm just gonna take the tube."
