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?


11. Liam's Decision

    Liam invited me out a few days later to the lake just to hang out. We played around in the water and jumped off cliffs then just sat down to talk every now and then. It was really nice just hanging out with him.

"So I think I'm going to do it."

"Do what?"

"The Xfactor thing. I think I want to do it."

"That's great! I'll be rooting for you."

"I need to find out if I can audition in the U.S. because I really don't want to cut my summer short by going back home."

"Oh well I think they're having one in Nashville pretty soon. It's a pretty far drive though."

"Would you come with me? Be at my side for support?"

"Of course. We need to look up the dates to audition when we leave here."

"Okay thanks." I knew he would make it, he was too good not to. I didn't realize till now though that the summer was close to being over and he would have to go back home to Wolverhampton. 

"Want to come over for dinner tonight? You can meet everybody." 

"Sure that sounds fun." Well almost. Everyone meant everyone staying there, including Danielle. I really wish I knew why she seemed so angry all the time. We stayed by the lake a little longer before he took me back home.

"I'll pick you up in about an hour, is that okay?"

"Yeah that's fine." After he left I went upstairs to shower, getting all the nasty lake water smell out. I wasn't sure what to wear so I kept it simple putting on dark skinny jeans, a lighter green that had lace floral patterns and some white flats. I figured it wasn't too dressy but still nice. I also straightened my hair and put on a little makeup. When I was ready I had maybe fifteen or so minutes to kill so I looked up Xfactor audition dates. The earliest was in four days. I texted Liam to ask if he was okay with it being that soon and he was actually pumped about it. He also told me he was already on his way so to be looking for him.

    We walked into the house and were greeted by who I guessed was his mother. She ran over and hugged him and he introduced me while she was giving me hug as well. I already felt more comfortable knowing how open she was to me. 

"Oh it's so nice to meet you Aubree! I've heard great things about you. My name is Karen. Geoff, come meet this lovely girl!" I glanced over at Liam and saw that he was blushing and scratching the back of his neck, trying to laugh it off. A very tall man walked over and greeted me. He was pretty intimidating at first but he was actually really nice and welcoming. 

"Hello Aubree, I'm Geoff. If Liam here acts up you just tell me." He teased Liam, patting him on the back. Then I met the couple named Lisa and John, the family friends I could only assume. They were really welcoming as well. Soon after two girls walked in the room with Danielle.

"Hi I'm Nicola." I waved back. She had short blond hair.

"And I'm Ruth." She had longer blond hair and out of the two, she looked most like Liam.

"And you already know Danielle", Liam stated.

"Well I don't know about anybody else but I'm starving", Geoff commented. I was really hungry as well so once they all finished small talking, we ate. 

"So Aubree, you seem like a nice and well balanced girl. Why would you be with Liam?", Nicola joked.

"Can we not, please?", Liam said shaking his head.

"Why don't you want us asking questions? You are together, right?" I probably turned cherry red and I can only imagine how Liam looked. I stared at my plate of spaghetti and kept running my hand through my hair.

"She's just a good friend okay? Please drop it", he said letting out a deep breath. 

"Oh come on! Look at him blushing." I still didn't look up, scared she would call me out on blushing as well.

"Alright Nicola that's enough, we don't want to make Aubree uncomfortable."

"Sorry Aubree."

"Oh, it's alright." The rest of the dinner was really fun and full of laughter. His family really seemed to like me and kept asking me questions which I didn't mind asking. On the way out I was hugged by everyone, except Danielle who decided to do dishes.

"I expect you back soon, Aubree!", Karen hugged me full of joy.

"Hopefully I will", I replied back with a big smile. We said our goodbyes then Liam took me home.

"I'm uh, sorry about Nicola. She picks at me a lot."

"I could see that. Why did she think we were together?"

"I guess because we always hang out and stuff. I don't know. I have some bad news though."

"What is it?"

"Well I talked to my mum about the Xfactor auditions in Nashville. She wants me to audition back home in case I do make it through." I hadn't thought about that. If he did make it he would be here longer and that would mean his parents would have to look for a house to rent. 

"O-oh well I understand."

"I don't want to leave early though."

"I don't want you to either. Who else would go cliff diving with me?" By this time we had pulled into my driveway. I was caught off guard by him grabbing my hand.

"Maybe you could still come to the audition? I know it's a long shot but still."

"I'll still try my best to be there. When do you leave?"

"I think next week or the week after. Depends which audition date I can go to."

"Oh okay."

"..You know, there is ONE way you could come for sure.." I was a little confused.


"Maybe if you auditioned with me..-"

"Are you kidding? I don't sing anymore Liam."

"But what if you just tried, I mean if you auditioned or SAY you're gonna audition, you could still go with no problem."

"You haven't even heard me sing."

"I've heard good things from Ariana."

"But still. I can't." He was still holding my hand. "And anyway, you think my parents would actually let me go to England just to audition?"

"Maybe. After all, they always supported your singing didn't they?"

"Well I guess but-" Then it happened. He kissed me. I felt shocks running through my body. It was a very strong kiss as well, I didn't want to stop but he pulled away.

"Just promise you'll think it over?" I was still shocked from the kiss, not even paying any attention to his question at first.

"Wait, what did you say?" He began laughing a little, knowing I was in shock.

"I asked if you would just promise to think it over, please?" I couldn't stop smiling, my head still spinning.

"Oh, yeah, sure." He gave me his stunning smile before hugging me and saying goodbye. 

****Just wanted to say a quick Happy New Year to everybody! I know I'm a little late but still! Hope everybody had a wonderful time XxAbby(:
