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?


27. Tension

    *Just forget her babe, I've been here the whole time :)* I read the message over and over until his screen fades to black. The contact is Danielle. I have actually forgotten all about her until now. I also haven't seen her the entire competition. Guess Liam is still close to her. Now I can't tell him how I feel when he potentially likes Danielle. That makes me sound like a hypocrite though because I flirt with Harry at times. I jump when I hear the water turn off. I quickly get into the bed and close my eyes. I hear the door creak open added my his footsteps. I peek my eyes open and see him just turning around. I hope he didn't see me. I hear a small ruffle on the sheets, figuring he grabbed his phone and then I hear a sigh followed by him sliding next to me in the bed. This surprises me because it's not head-to-toe but he doesn't hold me like he used to. I shake it off but get up, realizing I never changed into my pj's. Liam hasn't fallen asleep yet so he watches while I get some comfortable clothes and go into the bathroom. He's probably realizing I was only pretending to sleep but it doesn't even matter anymore. He likes Danielle. Probably always has. When I return to our room I see he's still awake and watches me as I make my way to the bed, expecting me to lay right beside him. Not this time. Tonight I do exactly what he did just the night before, I gather my pillow and throw it to the end of the bed. He doesn't say anything but he looks like he wants to. I get situated then give him a cheery smile before laying down and throwing the covers over my head. 

    I'm backstage. I run but in slow motion-I hate that. I continue to run yet my destination is unclear. Suddenly I'm not the one running anymore. I watch myself in overview still running. I can see in the distance Liam and Danielle. Liam gets down on one knee and I hear myself scream and try get to them but I don't make it in time because I'm relocated. I'm not looking down on myself anymore, I'm just lying in a field. The sun is shining down, the wind is blowing. Everything is peaceful. Then I see a hand above me, so I take it. When I'm to my feet, I see a figure purely of light. It's a male figure but he's walking away. I try to catch him but each step I take he gets farther away. I yell for him to wait and he does, even takes my hand again. Instinct tells me it's Jared leading me. We walk until we come upon a wedding. Why are we here? When we reach the alter, I see the backs of two males. The first to turn around is Liam. I get a twisted feeling in my stomach as he walks towards me. My feeling is right because he walks straight passed me and when I turn around I see him and Danielle kissing. By this time the other male is right in front of me, clearly smiling at me. Harry. Dreams have a funny way of expression. Some dreams have the ability to scare you, make you happy, confuse you, make no sense at all. I feel sad and that's the last thing I remember before being woken up.

"Aubree, Aubree wake up. It's okay, I'm right here." I open my eyes and I'm wrapped in Liam's arms. I suddenly feel relieved and bury my face into his neck.

"Do you want to talk about the dream?" I shake my head and start to cry. I hate dreams that actually make an impact on me. He rubs my back and I eventually start to feel better.

"Okay but please stop crying, your tears are flooding my chest." I look up and laugh. I forgot he doesn't have a shirt on.

"Sorry", I sniffle. He grabs my pillow and throws it right beside his and pats me to lay beside him. Once I crawl over he pulls the covers over us and holds me tight and I quickly fall back asleep without having a dream at all.


    Today we leave our families once again to continue the competition. Since only four of us are left, the contestants house is almost too quiet. I leave my family and head back to the house and to my surprise, I'm the first here. I head to the door but I'm stopped by a group of girls walking in my direction.

"Oh my gosh, It's really her! It's Aubree!" I stand there, a little taken aback as the petite brunette says this.

"Y-yeah..I'm Aubree." They all freak out and then pull out a pen and picture.

"Can we please have a picture and autograph!", The dirty blonde chirps. I see the picture is one of me the day of the first live show. I smile, perplexed, and do as they request and chat with them for a bit. They ask what it's like being on the show and let me know they always vote for me-It was probably the sweetest thing that's happened throughout the show. Soon after, Liam and the rest of One Direction come up to us and the girls go crazy. Harry probably got the most attention but the girls confessed to having crushes on all of them. Eventually we enter the house and I enter my room that I still share with Cher. I've actually kind of missed talking to her and just having a good girl best friend since Ariana and Brooke are back home. 


"You're missing out!", Harry calls from the kitchen. Everyone is drinking and partying except for Liam and me. So we decide to just go for a walk. We haven't talked much since he woke me up from my dream. I guess it's a little tense. But after walking for what seemed like forever, the silence breaks.

"Aubree, I'm sorry."


"For not talking to you as much. I just- I don't know."

"Tell me?"

"Well, I just got jealous."

"Jealous? Of what?"

"Think about it Aubree." I know he means Harry. That means my mom was right-but what about Danielle?

"I get it..but-Danielle."

"What about her?"

"You like her I thought."

"No..I like you.."
