6. Show Time
It was getting very close to the time of the show. My hair and makeup were all done and just being touched up. John came in with my mother to give me a little pep talk before I went on. He told me what to say. To introduce myself and to be prepared that there would be thousands of girls screaming about One Direction. I was quite aware how famous they were, but I had no idea of what was coming. I agreed to everything John was saying and he and my Mom both hugged me wishing me good luck. “Go get em, Sunshine.” My mom said, smiling. I thanked them both, and before I knew it, sound guys were everywhere clipping on microphones and making sure everything was perfect. I laughed at the thought of everything. I was in shock and it all seemed so surreal, all I could do was chuckle. “Bye Guys!” I waved to Mom and John as the sound guys turned on my microphone and I walked on stage. “Hello Miami!” I yelled out to the crowd of people. “I am Brook Wallans, and I’m going to sing a few songs for you tonight!” The crowd was screaming hysterically and I could not tell if it was for me, or just that they were that much closer to seeing One Direction. But I didn’t care, I was just happy to be there. I sang all of the songs and they went really well. The band I was singing with was amazing and everything was played just how it should have been. I was thrilled. After I walked off the stage, One Direction was right there setting up and getting ready to run on stage. They all told me how amazing it was, and I wished them good luck. They all ran on stage within 2 minutes, all except Harry. Harry hung back a minute, gave me a huge hug, and asked if I would be at the after party. His manager was yelling at him to get on the stage, and I wasn’t sure if I was going or not, but I agreed just so he would get on the stage. I laughed at the fact that he didn’t go on stage until I answered, it was kind of cute. Just kind of cute, I tried to tell myself.
Their show went amazing. I sang and danced the whole time, screaming and yelling just like the rest of their fans. After the show, they came out running and yelling with joy. “What a great show!” Niall yelled, with all the boys agreeing. I hugged all of them and told them how amazing it was. I went to my dressing room to put on some other clothes that weren’t ‘stage clothes’. After I was dressed, John and my mother were at the door both telling me how amazing everything was. John asked if I had heard about the after party and I nodded. John asked if I was interesting in going, and I looked at Mom for permission. She smiled and nodded, and I told John I was thinking about going since Harry asked me if I was going. John offered to drive me and pick me up after to take me back to the hotel. My mom surprisingly agreed and she and John went back outside. I sat in my dressing room, taking everything in for a few moments. Suddenly, I heard another knock. This time it was the boys. I told them they could come in. I asked them what was going on, and they just said they wanted to meet me somewhere at the party. “How about right at the front doors?” I asked a little bit nervous about the party and where it was. “That sounds perfect, love” Harry said, and the boys stood behind nodding. “Well, then I will see you there!” I said smiling. “In about a half hour, is that alright?” Liam asked with concern. “Yeah, sure, I will tell John to have me there in a half hour!” I replied happily. “Then it’s settled!” Louis said in a funny voice. “See you boys later” I said, still chuckling at the voice Louis had just used. The boys waved and walked out of the door. I soon went to find John telling him I needed to meet the boys in a half hour. John agreed. I think he was just relieved that the show had gone well. Soon after, we were on our way to the party, and I was pretty excited.
