All I Ever Wanted

How does someone so easily come into your life and change everything? Alanah Robson, 17, didn't know entering a simple contest for her favourite band, One Direction, would cause a chain of events to set off, changing the rest of her life.


4. Surprise, Surprise

(Alanah's P.O.V)

Its been 3 days since I sent in the video, and I haven't gotten a reply. I kind of knew I wouldn't win. But hey, its always fun to imagine. "Mom, Im leaving!" I called out as I closed the door behind me. I was off to school in my new red punch buggy my dad bought me for Christmas. The drive was like it always is; nice and long. I don't actually live far away from my school, but the early morning hustle of people trying to get to work causes a lot of traffic.

     When I arrived I quickly hopped out of the car, grabbed my bag, and straightened out my outfit. I have to say, I looked pretty slammin' today. I was wearing a tight, strapless white corsette top, tucked into a light gray and white flowy polka dot skirt. It was pretty short for school, but who cares. Gotta make a statement! I also had some short tan booties and was carrying my blue leather bag.

     I noticed Jenna sitting at a picnic table talking to some of the other girls. She looked pretty good today too, in her high waisted denim shorts, with a cropped dark grey top, and black leather booties. When se noticed me she immediately jumped up and ran in for a hug.

     "Good morning stranger!" she embraced me, "don't you look dashing today." she said in a fake British accent.

     "Why thank you love," I replied, mocking her tone "you look wonderful as well!" we started laughing at each other. We calmed down a bit, linked arms, and walked into school side by side.

     We went past the douchey guys, who all wolf whistled as we passed. We just rolled our eyes, and kept going. Jenna and I only have one class together which is chemistry, so she left to go to her first class. Most of the morning passed by pretty quickly, except for math, my teacher Mr. Craig went on for what felt like forever. His talking was interrupted by an announcement, "Attention students, we will be having a pep rally at lunch. So everyone come out and bring your school spirit!" 'Great...' I thought. Another think to waste my lunch hour with... When the bell finally rang, I ran to go find Jen.

     "Ready for the pep rally?" she asked.

     "Whatever." I mumbled. She sighed and we kept walking towards the gym. When we got there it was starting to fill up. We got stuck about halfway up the bleachers, in the isle seats. The curtain was down on the stage, I assume for whatever dorky student was performing.

     "I wonder who's standing behind that curtain getting ready to embarrass themselves." I laughed. Jenna chuckled quietly, trying to not make a big deal out of it. Once all of the seats were filled our principal Mrs. Wocheck walked out in front of the stage, mic in hand.

     "Hello students of Clear Ridge! Although the announcement said we would be having a pep rally, we will actually be having something a little more special." Jenna and I looked at each other confused, wondering what crazy Mrs. Wocheck had up her sleeve. "So, without further adue, here we go!" she winked, and shimmied out of view. Jenna and I laughed.

     The lights all went off, except for one spotlight shining on the curtain in front of the stage. Music began, and I recognized the first few beats of 'Live While We're Young'. My heart started pounding as I realized what was happening. Something more special. A surprise performance. Live While We're Young. The curtain flew up, and standing right there, in the spotlight, was none other than One Direction! I immediately jumped up from my seat, and started singing along with Liam's solo. I couldn't take my eyes off of the boys. They were perfect. But in the back of my mind, I began to wonder 'who else in the school could have signed up for the contest, and WON?'. I pushed the thought away and looked over at Jenna who happened to be laughing at my excitement.

     The song ended and Harry's voice came over the speakers, "Hello Clear Ridge!" The girls all went nuts hearing his deep British accent. I have to admit, I've always been a Harry girl. "We're so happy to be here!" He smiled, probably realizing he was making every girl in the room go mental.

     "So, as some of you may know, we held a contest a few days ago, and the winner got a private performance at their school. And yes, you guessed it, somebody from your school won." Harry paused and looked around the crowd. His eyes met mine for a brief moment, and he began to look lost. He quickly started scanning the room again. My heart skipped a beat when he looked at me. It was like everything froze while our eyes were locked, nothing else mattered. He actually saw me.

     Louis decided to pick up where Harry left off, "Now the thing is, the winners of the contest don't actually know they won. We are here as a surprise. So, would you all help us bring Alanah Robson, and Jenna McFarlane to the stage!" Jenna's hand immediately gripped onto mine, and I spun around to look at her shocked. We won. We actually won. I was so lost, I didn't even realize we had already found our way to the front of the stage.

     Two huge body guards came, and lifted us up onto the stage. As soon as my feet touched the ground, I was overwhelmed with the warm embraces of One Direction. The gym was filled with people chanting our names. But all I could think about was the fact that my idols were standing right before my eyes. And they acknowledged me!

     "Hello girls!" Liam spoke into the microphone. We waved back, and I tried to smile. Jenna didn't seem as freaked out as I was. But honestly, I had no clue what to do!

     "So, who's who?" Niall asked.

     I felt Jenna nudge my arm to go first. I replied as calmly as I could, "I'm Alanah." I didn't mean for it to be so quiet, but all of the boys smiled at me, which helped me relax a little bit.

    "And I'm Jenna." She smiled.

     "Well ladies, you are very good at making videos!" Zayn winked. We both giggled, trying not to make complete fools of ourselves. I looked at Harry, he was just casually standing like an angel with his hands tossed in his pockets. Damn, how does he do it?

     "Shall we do another song?" Liam interrupted my daze. I nodded, and the crowd screamed. The music for 'Kiss You' began and Harry waltzed over to me taking my hand, while Niall took Jenna's. That simple gesture was enough to put me in a coma, but then when the lyrics said "let me kiss you" they both leaned in, and planted a soft kiss on our cheeks. I had to bite my lip to stop myself from screaming directly in Harry's face.

     The rest of the concert went by way too fast! The boys finished with 'What Makes You Beautiful', which Jenna and I were sitting off to the side for. When it was over, the boys said goodbye to the crowd, and came over to us.

     "Thank you so much for choosing us!" I managed to choke out.

     "Oh, it was our pleasure!" Harry grinned, "Especially for two beautiful ladies like yourselves." I felt my cheeks turn bright red, so I looked down to hide my blush.

I heard one of the boys giggle, causing my face to burn even brighter. Thankfully Zayn changed the subject, "So would you like any pictures?" We both pulled out our phones and took many shots with each of the boys. I definitely took the most with Harry. I hope he didn't mind.
