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?


26. Break

    Only five contestants left. I'm one of those five. Along with Liam and Cher. I couldn't be happier with the way everything has turned out. Do I think I'll win? Probably not. As the end of this show gets closer, I can't help but get upset knowing I or my friends could be going home next. Today we get to go see all our families and I couldn't be more excited. I've been missing my parents and Liam's family more than I ever thought I would so this weekend off is music to my ears. When we reach our hotel we quickly grab our bags and rush to our room. Only knocking once, Nicola opens the door and shrieks with excitement. I give her a long awaited hug as to everyone else then sit beside Liam in the kitchen. My mom and Karen have made a huge breakfast for us.

"So Liam, how has everything with the band been?", Geoff asks.

"It's been, uh, fun. Really fun." Everyone nods with big smiles, pleased with his answer. Except me. I look at him but he doesn't meet my gaze.

"Well Aubree, how's Cher been?", Ruth chirps.

"She's great-we get along so well. I hope she wins it if Liam or I don't."

"And Harry?", she quickly adds.

"He's pretty awesome. He's nice." I know I'm already blushing. Harry and I have been really close lately. We hang out whenever we have free time and flirt a little as well.

"Have you and him come to a truce yet Liam?", Karen asks. He only shrugs. Liam hasn't been himself lately-around anyone. I've been holding off on confronting him but I just have to later or I'll go nuts. After we eat mom insists on Liam and me having time to ourselves since we really don't get any in the contestants house. We decide to just sit in our room while everyone else goes out because we're too tired to go somewhere else. I lay on my stomach at the end of the bed with a pillow to prop my head on while Liam lays opposite on the floor so I'm upside down.

"Can I ask you something?" No answer. "Liam?"

"Oh sorry, what?"

"Can I ask you something?"

"Go for it."

"You haven't been..yourself lately I guess."


"So what's up with you?"

"Nothing really."

"Please don't lie to me."

"Just drop it."

"But-" He gets up and goes to the bathroom. Maybe I was pushy? I just miss the old Liam, but I guess I'll never know why he's acting so distant. The rest of the day I spend with my parents as Liam with his. We actually don't talk to each other the rest of the day either. He's one of my very best friends and I don't want to lose that. When we go to bed, Liam doesn't sleep beside me to cuddle me like he used to. Now, he's back to the "head-to-toe" arrangement. I don't even comment because I don't want to start anything or make it awkward. 

    I awaken to something dropping in the bathroom. I quickly get up and peek inside to find Liam staring into the mirror. I'm not sure what he dropped but I just get back into the bed and fall back asleep. The next time I wake up, it's because of my mom.  I try to shoo her away but it doesn't work.

"Honey, you need to get up. Liam and his family have been gone for an hour already."


"They went to some restaurant but I was thinking we could just go have a girls day since your father has to work."


"He still has a job but everything is over the phone. Makes it more difficult but he knew that coming with us."

"Alright I'm getting up."

"Good, we leave in an hour." It took me at least five more minutes to actually get out of bed but when I do I take a long shower and just blow-dry my hair so I can equip it into a messy bun. I throw on some skinny jeans, a white sweater, and some matching flats. It's not like I need to impress my mom. When I get into the kitchen, she hands me a plate of eggs and toast.

"Sorry there isn't much left-Liam ate most of it."

"It's alright. I'm not that hungry anyway." It doesn't take me long to eat so almost no time later we're sitting at the local salon getting our nails done. Most of the conversation is about the contestants house or video diaries but when there's a silence, I speak up.

"So uh, has Liam changed-in your opinion?"

"No, not really at all. Why?"

"I don't know. He uh, just-nevermind."

"You can tell me, I won't say anything." It's true. I used to tell her a lot of drama when I was younger and I even shared some of my embarrassing secrets with her yet she never told them to anyone. 

"Well, he's been so distant and stand-off-ish to me specifically."

"I thought you two are best friends?"

"I thought the same but he barely talks to me." She takes this in and thinks about it before speaking again.

"You don't think he's jealous of Harry, do you?"

"Why would he be jealous?"

"Well you like Harry, right?"

"Kind of yeah."

"And you flirt sometimes with him when Liam's around?" I think back. Audition day is when I met Harry. I talked to him a lot and he did get flirty while waiting to audition and Liam was right beside me. That's when Liam started disliking Harry. I feel so stupid! 

"You don't think.."

"I do."

"For how long?"

"Eh a while."

"I need to fix this."

"How? You're gonna tell Liam you don't have feelings for him?" She raises her eyebrow as she says this. I take a deep breath. I do have feelings for Liam. That's the problem. How do I confront him?

"You know, it's alright to have feelings for two people but you have to think about why you like both of them." At first I didn't understand what she meant but then it made sense. I like Liam because we have so much chemistry and we're so close as friends. I only like Harry because on physical attraction with some flirting. 

"Do you understand what I'm saying?"

"Yeah. I really need to fix this." When our nails are done we decide to do our hair as well. I only get a small trim but my mom gets a few inches cut off. She really is beautiful. Many people say we look alike but I think she's far prettier even if she's my mom. When our day is over we find everyone is back at the hotel. Maybe I can get Liam alone and talk to him-or should I talk to Harry first? I walk into the bedroom to hear the shower running. That leaves me to think about what I'll say, that is, until I see his phone on the bed. I'm not one to go through someone's phone but I can't ignore a message that fills his once blank screen.

*Just forget her babe, I've been here the whole time :) *

A/N: So sorry it took me so long to update! It's finally summer though and I'll work on the next chapter soon :) I did delete my other movella "Falling" because I was too excited to post "Fix A Heart" and I didn't want to be working on three movellas or excluding one for a while. I won't delete Fix A Heart so feel free to read if you want :)  Thanks again for being so patient! XxAbbyxX
