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?

21. Pancakes And Toy Story

I'm a bit overwhelmed after auditioning but excited. We go to Nandos to celebrate where I see a few people who auditioned before me. One I talked to is a girl named Hannah, she's 16 but crazy tall and thin. She sang Firework by Katy Perry. I make sure to congratulate her before heading back to the hotel. As soon as we all get back to the hotel I sleepily walk to Liam and my room, passing out. I dream of Jared and me when I was in one of my earliest singing competitions. I sang "My Heart Will Go On" and Jared was on stage with me to hold my hand and keep me company. It was one of the most memorable dreams I've probably ever had. My dream was soon disrupted by someone moving me. I ignore, trying to stay in my dream but it doesn't work. When I open my eyes I see Liam scooting me over before removing my heels.
"Sorry, you were kinda hogging the bed", he says in a apologetic voice.
"No problem", I mumble before bundling up in the sheets.

*********
When I wake up, I see I beat Liam today. Then I realize his arms around me. He's sleeping soundly so I don't want to wake him up. I was so tired yesterday that I didn't even remember to sleep head to toe like we agreed at the beginning of this trip. It's my fault. I try to wiggle from his muscular arms and luckily, I succeed. He shuffles a little but buries his head back into his pillow. I get up and shower, in which I feel my sunburn more than ever. The hot water only intensified my burning body. I ended up finishing my shower with practically ice cold water, but it felt good and relaxed me. When I get out, I change into some jean shorts and a white tank top. Then I apply some lotion, hoping it'll help cool my burn. I smell something in the kitchen so I walk in and see Ruth making pancakes.
"Morning Aubree."
"Morning." As I get closer she laughs a little. I knew she saw how much sun I got yesterday.
"How did you not get burned?" I ask while sitting at the table.
"I moisturize with SPF15 so it works for me." She hands me a plate full of chocolate chip pancakes and I dig in.
"Where's the parentals?" I ask while taking a big bite.
"Yours are taking a bus tour while mine took Nicola to the doctor. She may have a virus, I don't know."
"I hope she gets better soon."
"It's not too bad, she'll be fine." She makes one more plate then places it in the microwave for whenever Liam wakes up.
"I'm going shopping with one of my friends today, you're welcome to join but I imagine Liam had something planned." She shugs then starts cleaning the kitchen counter.
"Either is fine with me."
"Well I just didn't want you to get even more burned or feel poorly. You may just want to take it easy today." I lightly touch my shoulder and wince a little. She's right.
"I think that's a good idea, have fun Ruth." She waves before leaving. I finish breakfast and walk back into the room. Liam is still sleeping so I grab my phone and sit down on the couch in the living room. I call Ariana and it soon turns into a three way with Brooke and Trent being added. We catch up and it hits me how much I miss them. They ask questions one after another about England. I tell them as much as I can, considering I haven't done very much yet. After my phone call I turn on the tv but I don't recognize the new channel numbers so I find Liam's Toy Story and put that in instead. When the movie is almost over I hear Liam come out of the bedroom, scratching his messy bedhead.
"Morning sleepy head."
"Morning", he says yawning.
"Ruth made you breakfast-it's in the microwave."
"Oh okay thanks." I hear the microwave open and shut and soon Liam came and sat by me.
"I see you found Toy Story", he says while eating.
"Yeah, I like this one."
"Do you wanna do anything in particular today? I turn to look at him and see his face is cherry red.
"Not really? Do you?"
"Maybe we can just hang out, since we're both brutally burned." I agree and we finish the movie. I think back to how distant he was yesterday. Especially when I met Harry. I don't want him to be like that again, I felt left out. If we make it through boot camp then we move into a house with the other contestants. If we make it, will it change us?
