Forever Young

Aubree is only 16 years old but has already had a rough life. When her older brother Jared dies from his battle with cancer, her whole world seems ruined. She starts really questioning what she wants to do with her future because she doesn't think she'll ever be able to sing again until Liam comes into her life. Can Liam help her get the courage to sing again or will she take a completely different road with someone else?


23. Boot Camp

       I wake up in a cold sweat. I had a dream about Jared. I can't put my finger on it but something wasn't right. Have you ever had those dreams where you just get feelings but don't remember what exactly happened? That's what this one was like. I see its three something in the morning so I get up to get some water from the bathroom. I look at myself in he mirror and see dark bags under my eyes.

"That's just great", I say sarcastically to myself. I climb back into the bed with Liam, feeling him roll over and cuddle me. I feel so safe with him.


"Aubree. Aubree. Aubreeeeeee get up!", I recognize the voice to be Liam's. I throw my hand up trying to shoo him away but he instead jumps on the bed.

"It's time to get up, don't make me force you awake." I can tell he has a big smile.

"Liiiiam please, just one more hourrrr", I groan. Suddenly I'm in his arms and spinning around.

"Better get up", he says laughing.

"Okay! I'm up I'm up!" I say pratically in tears from laughing. He puts me down and pushes me to the bathroom.

"Today is the day, boot camp!" I forgot all about it! No wonder I woke up sweating. Nerves are showing. I don't know what I'm singing. Guess I'll just wait till last minute before every perofrmance. I jump in the shower and continue with my regular routine. Now I have to choose what I'm going to wear. I pick out a fitted short, red dress but black converse for shoes. I'm not having my feet constantly hurt like last time. For my hair I do a dressy bun and keep my makeup simple, only adding bold red lips to finish the look. Liam walks in and whistles.

"Those are some sexy converse." I can tell he's holding back laughter.

"I don't want my feet to constanly be killing me." He nods.

"Well we're about to go, you ready?" I try to shake my nerves as I nod but it doesn't help.

"I guess I better be."

"That's the spirit." He smiles while grabbing my hand. We get together with our families before heading off to boot camp.


    As we make our way backstage I see familar faces all around, but no Harry. I get a little nervous and decide to take a seat before I continue backstage. Liam hesitates but continues without me. I fiddle around with my fingers until I feel smeone sit next to me. He offers me a bottle of water and I take it.

"Thanks", I say with a smile.

"No problem. I'm Louis by the way."

"Nice to meet you Louis, I'm Aubree." We shake hands and small talk for a little while. He's really funny, I can tell we'll be good friends.

"So are you nervous", I ask.

"Sure, but those are good I suppose. Always have a little nerves."

"Thanks, I feel a little better now."

"No problem. Well, I best get back to my family. See you later."

"Bye Louis." I get up and try to find Liam and luckily I do within five minutes. I see Ruth is giving him some kind of pep talk while patting him on the back.

"Where have you been Aubree?" She asks.

"I needed to go sit for awhile and let myself calm down."

"Liam should do the same, he's a bit anxious."

"I'm sure he'll do well, he always does", I give him a reassuring look.

"Attention everyone, I now need contestants 22-43 to get ready for stage", a woman with a microphone states.I look down to see I'm number 34 and Liam is 33. We follow all the numbered contestants to a holding room until each of us are called for our performances. Unfortunately our families can't join us until we actually go on stage. Liam and I take a seat in one of the many chairs as a few people rehearse their songs. I hear someone sit down beside me but I don't bother to look. I continue watching a little girl, probably eight, sing  a Hannah Montana song. She's really good and adorable as well.

"Crazy how much talent is among us huh." I recognize his voice. Harry. I turn around and smile.

"Sure is. How have ya been Harry?"

"I'm great. And you love?"

"Nervous but overall well."

"I'm loving the sneakers with the dress look." I can't help but blush.

"Thanks." He licks his perfect lips and smiles.

"You're cute when you blush." I laugh and little, feeling my cheeks get even hotter than before.

"Numbers 22, 23, and 24 we need you backstage at the curtains please", a different woman than before anounces. Two boys a little older than me get up and a girl probably about twelve leave to perform. I still have a little before I go on stage to calm myself.

"So have you been meeting the competition?" Harry asks while trying to keep the converstatin going.

"Yeah a little. You?"

"I've already given an autograph." I laugh.

"I bet." He laughs along with me.

"I really have though. A guy named Louis Tomlinson asked for one. Said he wanted to be the first to have my autogragh because he thinks I'll be famous."

"I just met him a while ago! He's really nice and funny."

"Yeah, he's great. I wished him luck. He won't audition for awhile though. I think he's number 60 something." We chat for awhile until Liam and me are called. I finally decide to sing Rolling in the Deep and I end up making it alng with Liam, Harry, and Louis.
