6. Singing Career
I woke up to the feel of a tap on my shoulder. It was Uncle Zayny waking me up for breakfast.
"Wake up love, Daddy made breakfast for you." Oh yay! I was hungry. I seemed to have inherited that from Uncle Ni Ni. I have inherited something from each of my uncles and my Dad. I'm always checking my appearance in the mirror like Uncle Zayny , I'm very mature and sensible like Uncle Li, I've got some sass, and an ass from Uncle Lou, and from Daddy I get my green eyes of course but I also get the love of cats. I had 6 cats at home. I miss them already.
Anyway I walked into the kitchen to see that Daddy had made me sausage bacon and pancakes. He's amazing.
"Thanks Daddy, I'm starving." He handed me a plate and I sat down on the couch between Uncle Li and Uncle Lou and watched E!. They started talking about One Direction.
"The teen heartthrobs One Direction are looking for a new singer to duet with. How can you be the lucky someone? Just go to onedirection.com and send a video of your self singing, and maybe you'll be good enough to sing with One Direction."
Oh cool. When I finished my breakfast I got dressed. I was wearing a hot pink and navy blue striped t-shirt , jeans and brown uggs. I did my makeup more natural than I usually do, with just brown eyeshadow and a little black eyeliner. I put moose in my hair to make it curly. After about 15 minutes I was ready. I walked into the living room and was greeted in a big hug from Uncle Lou.
"I LOVE YOU!!!"
Oh my shirt.
"Haha are you all ready to go?"
"Yea Princess lets go." Aww I'm my dads princess.
We got into the car and I realized just how crazy my family really is. The whole ride was full of goofing off and laughter. When we got to the mall we first went into a clothing shop. There were already paparazzi taking pictures of us from outside. It kind of freaked me out a bit being watched all the time. Daddy bought me the cutest clothes. He even bought 3 pairs of pumps. One pair were black, one pair were red and one pair were deep purple. He was spoiling me already. Uncle Ni Ni took me into a jewelry store and bought me a diamond shamrock necklace. Uncle Li bought me a giant stuffed turtle for my bed and Uncle Lou took me into a store to buy a comforter for my bed. He of course picked out a striped one but I picked a hot pink cheetah print one. Uncle Zayny took me into ULTA to buy make up and hair supplies. He bought some for him self. Then we all met back up at RadioShack and Daddy got me an iPad. I told you he was spoiling me. They all were. We all went to go eat at the food courts.
"Darcy, can you help me with the food?" Daddy asked me.
"Sure." We walked up to the counter and waited in line.
"Darcy you never got to answer my question yesterday. Why do you need to come live with me?" There's that lump in my throat, the one that's preventing me from speaking.
"I.... For the past four years Moms had a drinking problem. Because of it, she never is at home. She's too busy partying and when she is home she's either hooking up with some guy or sleeping it off. I had to do everything for myself at home. She never has paid much attention to me even when she was sober. That's why I came to you. From what Mom told me she has no family left. You're all I have."
" I would never neglect you like that, in anyway. You're living with me and you're never going back to that life. I promise. And about Taylor she was never going to get between us, You're my only princess."
"I love you Daddy." People gave us strange looks when I said that but I don't think Dad seemed to care. I was his princess.
"I love you too Darcy." He gave me a hug and kissed the top of my head.
We got the food and sat back down to eat. I think all of us were hungry because no one said a word. When we got back home I took out my iPad and Uncle Zayny taught me how to use it. It got pretty easy after a while. Dad told me I could download as many songs as I wanted so I downloaded some Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Kanye West, Hunter Hayes, yes I'm a fan of country, I'm from the country part of Maryland. All other sorts of artists.
I went to my bunk that was now set up, and played temple run while listening to my music. I was listening to Wings by Little Mix and I started to sing. I loved singing but I never thought I was good.
"Momma told me not to waist my life she said spread your wings my little butterfly, don't let what they say, keep you up at night and if they give you sh- then they can walk on by.
My feet, feet can't touch the ground, and I can't hear a sound but you just keep on running up your mouth yeah."
I kept singing. I love Little Mix. I've only heard two songs but they're pretty good. Especially Perrie. She's beautiful. I think she's perfect for Uncle Zayny.
When I was done with the song my name was called.
"Yeah?" It was Daddy.
"Was that you singing?" Oh god he heard me.
"You're an amazing singer Darcy. Can you sing some more for me?"
I started singing Live While We're Young. By the middle of the song all the boys were in the room just listening to my voice. What was so great about it anyway? I think my voice sucks.
"Wow." Is all that was said. I can't be that good.
"You're that good." Uncle Li said.
"Did I just say that out loud?"
"Yea and Liam's right you're that good. How about you do that duet with us?" Uncle Lou asked.
"The one that E! Was talking about this morning?"
"I don't know."
There were many "Oh come on it will be fun!"s and "Please?"s. I finally gave in.
"Okay." But I was nervous. I never have been in the spotlight before and I didn't plan on being in it. I guess I was going to be anyway after everyone finds out I'm Harry Styles daughter. It's worth a shot. Who knows maybe a year from now ill be sitting in an interview explaining this exact moment to a reporter and reliving it. This could be the start of a singing career.
