5. Who is it?
I stepped outside my room, and I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was One Direction. What were they doing here? Were they performing? Are they just watching? All these questions ran through my mind as I stood there in shock. “This is Brook Wallans” John said, interrupting my thoughts. “Brook, meet One Direction!” He said with a slight smirk across his face. Harry was the first to talk. “Hello love!” He said with his cheeky smile. The other boys joined in and said it was nice to meet me. I managed to stutter the words, “Hey boys, what brings you guys here?” I felt my face go red, and it sounded like a dumb question, but I really was confused as to why they were here. Niall and the rest of the boys began to laugh. “We’re performing here tonight” Louis said with a huge grin on his face, realizing I was not aware of what was happening. “Wait… are you guys the band I am opening up for?” I asked with disbelief. “That would be us!” Zayn said almost in a sarcastic but playful tone. I started to giggle. “I’m sorry, I had no idea!” I said trying to register what was occurring. “That’s alright, no worries!” Niall said with his beautiful Irish accent. They were so adorable. All of them! Especially that Harry, his eyes were perfect and his smile could brighten up the darkest place. We made small talk, and discussed the show and how nervous I was. They each told me they had only heard good things about me and my performances and that I had no reason to worry. “I’ve heard the same about you!” I said in a joking manner, knowing they all knew quite well that I had heard them sing plenty of times. They had been on every talk show and I had seen them sing almost a dozen times. They were pretty good I had to admit. All the boys were laughing at this point, and so was I. Niall said he was hungry and was going to find something to eat. The boys rolled their eyes and Liam said,” That boy is always hungry!” and chuckled. Everyone laughed at that and all the boys agreed. After a while of us chatting, John came over to me and said we all needed to start getting ready in our dressing rooms. I agreed, but I didn’t want to leave them. They were all so friendly and had almost taken my mind off of everything. I couldn’t argue with John though, I knew he was right and that we all did need to start getting ready for the big night. We all wished each other good luck, and then we parted ways. I went to my dressing room where John said the stylists would be meeting me shortly. As I sat in my room waiting, I was thinking to myself about how amazing it was that I was opening up for One Direction. They were so famous and so lovely. I felt myself getting caught up in everything, especially Harry. I told myself I needed to stay focused, and concentrate on why I was here. Plus, I had heard a lot about Harry and what he was like. According to all the paparazzi and well, everyone, he was the flirt. He was the boy in the group who didn’t mind hooking up and had never been in a serious relationship. I reminded myself of that and started to think about the show. I was getting really anxious now.
Wow, that Brook sure is something special. I’d seen her picture before but up close she was even more beautiful. The way her brown hair fell to her shoulders and her eyes captivated me the whole time. I wonder what she thought of me. I hope I can see her again. I know there is an after party tonight but I wish I knew if she would be attending. I cannot wait to hear her sing, I bet she is amazing. She has to be. Somebody that perfect could never be bad at anything, it just wasn’t possible.
