17. Running Back To Lexi

I left and I didn't care where I was going. Until they worked out their problems I wasn't going to be there. And that's final.

I had had no where to stay, since the Hake 'incident'. I KnOW I'll call up my friend that I was staying with before I moved in with Jake. I haven't seen her in a year but eh, it's worth a shot.

"Hello?" She snapped.

"Hi Lexxi. Im sorry I haven't called. I ran into an old friend, and I've had some bad things happen.is it alright if I come back...I can pay the next 2 months rent?"

"Fine." She sounded like she didn't want me there.

"Ok, thanks Lex." I hung up and hailed a taxi.

 

"Can you take me to 362 Moon-view road."

"Sure thing."

We say in silence the whole way there, it wasn't awkward, just right.

"Thank you." I handed him the money and knocked on the apartment door.

Silence...

I unlocked the door and walked into her and some guy in a heated make out session.

"Um..."

They didn't even care I was there.

"Lexi.....LEXI IM RIGHT HERE!"

They paused and she turned to me with an annoyed look on her face.

"And?? I have a guest over so leave me alone. OH and your boss called. Did you put this number ad emergency on your résumé? I don't know or care, your boss wants you to get to work or he will fire you. You have 5 minutes he said." she smirked and went back to "haveing fun"

"Any idea of when he said that?" I asked, not wanting to get on her bad side.

"About..3....miuntes..ago." She said inbetween kissing her guest.

"Shit!"

I CANT be late for work or I will get fired.

as I hop into my car I turn on the radio. Lovely. One direction. As if I needed any memories of them right now. I have more important things to focus on.

I zoned out in my own thoughts , Harry, Louis, Lexi, What I will do with my life, Etc. when I saw the bright letters indicating I arrived.

NANDOS

"Hey Henry, sorry I was late. I had to take care of my friend, she was...sick." I lied.

"It's fine Emily. Just go wait tables, we are PACKED today."Henry said giveing me a fake smile. I knew he dispised me, I almost never showed up for work but I was his best worker so he couldn't fire me, HA!

"Hello, welcome to Nando's. May I take your order?" I asked some girls. About ages 18-20.

"Yea I would like some Peri-peri chicken please." One of them said without looking up from the menu.

"Okay, and you miss?"

"I would like-Wait."She looked up and studied my face. AWKWARD."Aren't you the girl who is dating Harry Styles?" She asked excited.

"Yep. But something came up so I came here so I wouldn't get caught in the middle of it."I said trying to hold my tears. I didn't want to leave them but I didn't want to break up the band.

"It's goning to be okay. Can I get a picture with you?"

"Umm, well I have to work right now but if you come back or wait until 7:30 I could take some pictures with you." I said with a half smile. I didn't want to dissapoint her.

"Okay, sounds great."She said excitedly."Can I get some Peri-Peri chicken too please?"

"Of course. Be back in a little bit." I winked at them before turning away to put their orders in.

"LEXI COME ON! WE ARE MEETING MY FRIENDS WHO I HAVE BEEN WITH FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS!" Harry called to say him and Louis made up and they wanted me to come back and bring my friend.

"WHY??? I WANNA SEE MY BOYFRIEND!" She screamed back.

"LATER NOW LETS GO!" I yelled while pulling her to my car.

She was whining the whole ride there and I wanted to just slap her to shut her up.

~~

I knocked on the boy's door.

Louis answered it and imediatly smiled and opened his arms for a hug.

I ran to him screaming LOUIS but he avoided me and screamed LEXI while lifting her up off the ground and twirling her around.

What?

"Lou?"

"Huh?" He asked while snaking his arm around Lexi's waist and pulled her into a kiss. UGGH GROSS.

"I see you know my friend here."

"Of course I would know my girlfriend." He pulled her into another kiss and started making out. I thought she was just with a different guy at home??

"PDA PEOPLE!" Harry yelled. "Oh Hey Babe I missed you. Where is your friend?"

"Over there eating Louis' face off."I gave her a deathglare.

"oh." Was all he said. Did I do something wrong?

"Hey babe, I got you a surprise."He winked at me.

"and that would be?"

"Not a surprise if I told you. Louis got Lexi something too."

Great.

"Come in before they get more...intense."Harry smiled awkwardly."Guys, should we give the girl's their present now?" Harry asked his band mates, Louis and Lexi arrived shortly after.

"Well, what do you think it is?" Harry teased, being all cute. I put my finger up to my chin as if I was thinking and I was going to guess chocolate, but Louis cut me off.

"We got you times to sing infront of Simon to see if he wants to sign you. We know that your dreams, Emily and Lex, have always been to be a pop star. I could never forget that day at the park when you said you wanted to be a singer. So we are giving you two the chance." Louis beamed.

Hey Lou. Forgot ONE THING. I NEVER wanted to be a singer. I wanted to be an AUTHOR or Song Writer! And it was in my music room at my old house, not a park. Way to remember the little things Lou.

I don't want him to feel bad though, so I'll audition. I wont make it either way, my voice sounds like a constipated elephant seal.

"OMG I LOVE YOU LOUIS, I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SINGER!" Lexi Squealed in my ear. Uggh, I'm going to go deaf.

"Cool, Being a popstar would have it's benifits, hahaha but one problem Lou. I can't sing." I smirked. Maybe I wont have to do this.

"Non-sense. Your great. Almost as great as Lexi." My smile quickly turned to a frown. I thought He said I was good. Lexi sounded like a constipated hippo...no offense.........

"Oh and the 'audition' is in an hour."Zayn mentioned."Emily is going first."

Cool, I could fail misserably and never have to sing again. YES!

~~

"Emily. You can go now." Harry said while escorting me to Simon's studio."Oh and Em. I know you don't want to be a singer, but please try. For me? Lou really thought you wanted to be a singer."He gave me puppy dog eyes. Who CANT resist his puppy dog eyes.

"alright fine, I'll try."

"You know what song your singing?" Simon asked once Harry left his office. I nodded and he motioned for me to follow him to the recording studio.

"I'll be singing Lego House by Ed Sheeran."

"Ok, Carry on."

*Play song now*

"I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
And build a Lego house
If things go wrong we can knock it down

My three words have two meanings,
There's one thing on my mind
It's all for you

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

I'm gonna paint you by numbers
And colour you in
If things go right we can frame it and put you on a wall

And it's so hard to say it but I've been here before
Now I'll surrender up my heart
And swap it for yours

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

Don't hold me down
I think my braces are breaking, and it's more than I can take

And it's dark in a cold December, but I've got you to keep me warm
If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down

 And out of all these things I've done I will love you better now


 And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now

I'm out of sight, I'm out of mind
I'll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
And out of all these things I've done I will love you better now "

I sang it the best I could but I dont think I did very well. eh, I didn't want to be a singer anyways.

"Thats was...Wonderful. Can you send Lexi in now?"

I nod my head and head out to fetch Lexi.

"LEXI!" I call out."YOUR TURN."

"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!"She squeals. AGAIN.

"How did it go babe?"

"Eh, could have gone better. I wasn't one for singing anyways."I fake a smile at him to show I'm okay, but I'm not. Trust me, im not upset because I cant sing...It's because Louis has been ignoring me lately, and can't even remember the small memories from our childhood.

"LOU!" I hear that horrid voice again after about 5 minutes.

"Yes babe?"

"HE SAID I DID GREAT! OMG I THINK I GOT SIGNED!!!"

"Shut up already!" I hiss.

"Emily. That's no way to talk to my girlfriend." Louis scolded.

"Well I'm sorry if every time she talks she either whines or squeals. But that happens rarely since you two are always eating eachother's faces off." I snap at him.

"Well maybe I like her more than you! Not everyhing is about you Emily. You've hurt her enough." He snapped right back.

"What about Best friends forever Lou? Does that not mean anything to you?" I ask with pleading eyes.

"It does, but right now my priority is to find that girl who I can settle down with. and-"

"So that means you will devote your life to her and not even think about others. What about you and the boys? What about the band? What about us?"

"I don't have time right now to fight Emily."

"Right, you never have time to do anything wth me anymore. I know where I stand." I smile sadly, trying to be happy for him and his girl, but I can't keep this feeling from making my stomach flutter.

Am I in love? Am I jealous? No, I cant be. I have Harry, the sweetest man there is.

"Ladies." Simon's voice interupted my thoughts. I turned my attention to him."One of you will get signed and one will still have to work."

"It's fine. I know I cant sing, I wont be trying to audition anymore Mr.Cowell." I state as I leave my seat.

"Hold up, It's you who is getting signed. AND you are going to be a partial cover artist. You have a small tour to get you started down in the states. Sound good?" He asked.

Oh My Goat. I'm being SIGNED?

"But uncle Si? Lexi is better that Emily, why didn't you sign her?" I heard Lou beg. REALLY? You REALLY dont like me do you lou?

"I'm sorry Louis, she wasn't quite fit for this job." I think either lexi or Lou are crying but I can't tell who sice they are crying into the other one's shoulder. GIVE ME A BREAK.

"So Simon, When is she leaving to go on tour with Olly?"

"olly?" I ask confused.

"Olly Murs, you will be his opening act." Cool."You will be leaving tomorrow. Sorry for short notice."He gave a sympathetic smile and I think Iheard Louis murmur"The sooner, the better."

What's up his trousers this evening?

"Harry, I'm going to miss you, you now that?"

"I know, I'm going to miss you too. I'll be stuck with that sqealing blonde bimbo for 2 WEEKS" He whispered into my hair as we hugged.

"I thought you said you liked her?" I questioned, obviously confused.

"I only said that because Louis was in the room. She dresses like a slut."

"Good luck with her."I chuckle."Harry, will you help me pack?"

"Of course love." I smiled as we walked back to the bus, hand in hand.
