What the fame does to you Chp.1 Change my mind Past: Scarlet was an ordinary girl. The one that stayed far away from the populars. Until the 7th grade. That's when she met Lex. He was one of the populars the boy that everybody liked and he happened to like her. Something happened and he hated her. He started dating here enemy who was also a popular this really got her down. Until the day that everything changed.......... Scarlets POV "How could you do this to me? You picked me up and threw me down! I miss you but worried you'll hurt me again " just some of the lyrics to the new song I'm writing called how could you. Music seems to be the only outlet to what I'm feeling I always write a song when I'm extremely happy sad or angry. I can't help it! It helps me. It's the first day of my freshman year right before 5th period I go to my locker and I'm surprised to se my best friend May waiting for me. Our next class was pre-calculus we had it together. When we got to the class I sawi an unfamiliar face. He was a boy with a brown buzz cut and deep soulful brown eyes. And boy was he cute! I better make myself known before the plastics scoop him up. "Hey" I say " you look new . I'm Scarlet" I extend my hand out to him. He takes it and says " I'm Liam. And hi your the only person that has even bothered to talk to me today" I sat down next to him. He didn't understand the work and Mr.Mcguinney asked me to help him. I looked over at May and could tell she was pissed. I noted that she was working with Justin the guy we knew had a secret crush on her. She made her hand into a fake gun and pointed it go her head like " kill me now."I giggled We finally finished our class work and got started on the homework. I could tell that Liam was having a hard time. " you know I wouldn't mind helping you after school with your homework." His eyes lit up" really? You would do that?" " Totally. I mean you can't do it on your own. "I say. "Ok thanks umm soo where do u want to meet?"he asks. " we can meet at my house or there's a park down the street." I suggest. " we'll the park sounds great but don't you think it's a little cold out?"he says. "Ok my house it it!" I hand him a slip of paper with my address and phone number on it. " five?" He asks. "Five" I respond. I wave goodbye to Liam and head to my locker to get my books put away so I could go to lunch. I went down to the cafeteria and all the way to the back were my friends and I sit. ~time passes to five~ Chp.2 Last first kiss Liam's POV It's five and I'm almost to the address she gave me. I'm walking there because my dad hAd to work late and my mum was still in England I tell everyone that I was transferred from Wolverhampton but I really wanted to leave. Everyone bullied me except for my best friend. And long story short, I wanted to start over. Suddenly my phone beeped. I smiled it was Scarlet: Scarlet: hey Liam: hi Scarlet: u almost here? Liam: yeah I think I'm close to it Scarlet: ok I need to get ready so eta? Liam: huh? Scarlet: u dnt know wht tht means? Liam:sorry didn't have stuff like that in Wolverhampton. Scarlet: oh right! Ok so it means estimated time of arrival Liam: oh I guess that makes sense. Oh and now ** I was here where she lived it was a really pretty two story house with red shutters.i heard a voice yell" coming! " and a second later Scarlet opened the door."Liam!" She looked genuinely happy to see me, good. "Hey Scarlet" " come in" as I walked into the big living room I couldn't help but notice that it was pretty quiet." Are your parents home?" " no actually I live with my mom and she's on a business trip right now." She said still with that beautiful smile plastered on her face. We sit down and she starts working out the first homework problem, showing me step by step." Ohhhhh I get it!"I exclaim "Good!"she says " I know that mr Mcguinney talks fast sometimes, but whenever you need help I'm here." " thanks Scarlet" I give her a smile and she blushes. " we'll? What do you want to do now?"she asks. I explained to her that my dad wouldn't be home any time soon probably after midnight and she made a sad face. "You wanna stay over here tonight?" Did she seriously just ask me to stay at her house overnight?! Of course I wanted to. She was so sweet, beautiful and I wanted to get to know her more." That sounds great! Let me just ask my dad." I pulled out my phone. Me: hey dad, I'm at a friends house she's helping me with homework. Can I stay here tonight? Besides the bus here is just across the street. I was late today because I couldn't find the bus. Can I? Dad: Liam! I can't talk that much. I actually wasn't planning on going home after work at all I might chill with a friend, and stay over there tonight. She's a girl? You go tiger! Just not too far ok? Have fun! I'll see you tomorow! Liam: thanks dad! My dad was more like a best friend then a dad. Don't get me wrong if I disobeyed him he would get pissed. He just seemed to get how I always felt. ** I turned back to her. "What did he say?" She asked. " I can stay" I answered. "Yay!" Oh my gosh the look in her eyes as she said that was priceless. "C'mon!" She said as she grabbed my hand and dragged me into the kitchen. "What do ya want for dinner?" I ask opening the fridge." Hmm. Hey can I make something?" I ask her. "Sure! Do you need me here to help or....."she trails off. "No actually I wanted to surprise you." "Ok that works!!!" She walks out the door and I can hear her footsteps going up the stairs.something inside me just clicked. I just wanted to do something for her. So I decided to make her dinner. Cheesy right? But hey, I'm British! Scarlett's POV Oh my goodness once he said I could go I had to leave. I felt like if I stayed any longer I would make a fool out of myself. Why was I so nervous around him? I had only felt this way once before and that was about Lex. We all know that's not going anywhere! I had to identify this feeling, so I pull out my diary from the seventh grade. On about the seventh page started talking about Lex. I remember what the feeling is. The feeling of needing that one person, wanting to be with them, the feeling: liking someone. Liam's POV What was that about ?was she angry?Sad? Oh I dearly hope I haven't upset her. I turn the oven on low and head out of the kitchen. I start up the stairs and down the hallway until I see a door with a sign marked "knock first" I did. Scarlett's POV There was a knock on my door. I knew it had to be Liam. After all, I did kinda run out of there." Come in" who cares if he saw how miserable I was. If he didn't find out how I felt, he never would. And even if he did reject me, at least I wouldn't be stuck wondering. The door slowly opened. Liam's POV She was lying on her bed, books surrounding her and tear stains on her cheeks. I know I just met her, but she was the sweetest person I had ever met, I didn't want her crying. I rushed over and sat next to her." What's wrong? " I asked. " Liam I....I want to tell you that I like you and you probably don't like me back in the Same way but I still love you."She responded. I wiped away tear from her cheek. " Scarlet I like you too" she finally looked up into my eyes. I kissed her. And immediately fireworks appeared. I had only kissed one girl before her name was Katie and she used to be my girlfriend back in England. But I had never felt fireworks with her. I guess it is just not the same." You... You do?" She looked shocked. I scooted closer to her on the bed, moving the books aside. I brushed some hair out of her eyes and placed it behind her ear." Yeah" she smiled, and hugged me. She was all cheered up now." Common im making diner for us." " Kay. Wanna watch a movie after?" She asks. " why not while eating?"I suggest." You read my mind!!" She leaps up and yells:" I'm picking a movie!" I yell back ok. I pick up the books and replaced them on the bed. I knew they were her diarys, but I'm not a snoop. I see the name lex written in big red letters. I normally would have disregarded The fact, but I knew that name from school. I picked it up and sat down. My eyes did not fool me. It said "Lex= 😭" what did that pig do to her? I read on. Scarlett's POV Can u believe he kissed me? Nobody had ever kissed me before. Gosh every one of my friends told me they're first times were gross. But mine was... Well, nice. I grab my phone off my bed stand , before heading down to the basement to pick a movie to watch with Liam. I start texting May as I hop down the stairs: Me: ohmygod May:): what is it?? Me: guess what? May:); my guesses are always weird but hum okay. Me: guess!! May:): ok ok geesh! You got a turtle? Me: no silly!! Guess again May: ummmmm. U like someone?? Me: yup. And more May:):OHMYGOD YAAYYYYY Me: 😄 May: who is it? Me: if I tell u you'll freak May:): no I won't Me: ok, I like Liam May😳😳😳😳😳😳😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😒😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏 Me: lolj May : u guys are soo cute together! Me: why does everyone say that?? **i can hear Liam calling my name So I rushed down the hall Texting May on the way that I had to go. I burst into my room a say " Liam what on earth can be so impor-" I stop short when I see he has my diary in his hands. Shit. Liam's POV " Liam I..." She stutters out. She thinks I'm upset with her. I stand up Rush over and hug her. I dry her tears away." No no! I'm not upset with you!!" I say before she can run out. " why would I be? I just want to rip this lex guy to shreds." I say. She looked relieved. " be my guest" she said half smiling half sighing, and plopping herself down on her bed. I went and sat next to her. " do you want me to say something to him or no?" She looked up at me." Oh please don't Liam. As much as I would like it, I don't want you to be known as the one who argued with lex." " and that matters because?" I question. " because Liam, everybody loves lex. Last year he was the captain of the basketball team and he probably will be again this year. You just got here and I don't want to ruin your chances of finding friends." I scoot closer to her." You really are beautiful scarlet, and I don't need any more friends! I have you!" She smiled, but then it turned into a frown." Liam, but what if we don't work out?" "Don't worry that wont happen on my watch. Or as long as I love you. Which will be forever. I hope". Eventually we stopped for air." So what movie did you pick princess?" I ask. She giggles at the nickname I've given her." Does Toy Story Three sound ok?" " does it sound ok?! It's amazing!!!!!! I love the toy story movies!" " no way! They're my favorites!" We go downstairs to get our dinner and watch the movie. **two years pass** Chp.3 Still the one Scarlets POV Liam and I have been dating for two years. Amazing, right? But I guess after our first kiss that day he really meant he would love me forever. Liam's trying out for the X factor today. He tried back in freshman year but Simon said he wasn't ready. Lest see if he's changed his mind now. Before Liam left I made him promise that no matter how famous he gets, he will stay in touch and will NEVER forget.my phone beeps. Aww it's Liam: Liam: guess what babe?! Me: what? Liam: Simon let me down again Me: WHAT!!!!!!!!!! Liam: lol well almost Me: huh? Liam:well he said my boot camp audition wasn't good enough. And then introduced me to four other guys and said we were in as a group. Me: omg! Babe, that's awesome! Liam: ya! The lads are great! When do u get off from school today? Me: three. C'mon li u know that! Liam: ok ok.I'm emailing u tickets for you to come down here at five tonight. I need to see you. Me:tickets? Liam: I'm sending you three so you can bring two friends. You guys can stay in the house with us for the weekend, and come see our show. Me: Yay! Omg I know who I should bring! Liam: who sweetie? Me: May and Lily! Liam: they're both singl right? Me: ya.... But y does tht mattr? U interrupted my reading!!!! Me: oopsies lunch is almost over I gtg. Ill ask may next period and lily after classes. Well pack for the weekend, and b on the plane! ILY baby! Liam: ILY 2 princess!😘 Me:😘 **chp.4 everything about you I went to fifth period and bumped into may. "Oh my gosh!" I exclaimed. " did you hear back from Liam yet?" She asks. " Long story he made it, but Simon put him with a group. Li wants u and lily and I to go visit him and the four other lads." " cool! When?" " today we have a flight at five." " idk if I want to" she says looking down."Did I mention that all four of them are single?"I said. "oh my goodness Im in." We round the corner to see our teacher welcoming the students in. " oh hello girls! Scarlet what a beautiful dress!" Thank you mrs. Garrets!" After class I see lily. I tell her what I told May. She agrees to meet us after school by my locker. The rest of the school day takes forever to pass. Finally seventh period is over and I go to my locker. Two excited faces await me. The girls And I walk to my house. We finish our homework and then start helping me pack my bag. I change into tight black skinny jeans and a hot pink flowy top. i put my hair up in a ponytail and quickly add sone lipgloss. there perfect.We quickly run to their houses to pick up their suitcases. We make it to the airport just on time. The flight was exhausting.it took three hours until we landed. As we got off the plane I looked for liam. He said he would wait here for me suddenly I spotted him and my arms are outstretched as I run to him. He caught me up and kissed my hair." I missed you" he mumbled while rubbing my back. In truth he'd only been gone for about two weeks. But for us, it felt like forever. I hear a cough behind me.I turned to May and Lily looking pissed. "Oh sorry!" I stepped away from Liam. Liam gestured to the two boys behind him. He introduced the strong looking one with black hair to be Zayn, and the goofy looking one with dark brown hair and blue eyes to be Louis." Niall and Harry wanted to umm. Look better for your friends company." He chuckled and glanced at Lily and May who were blushing and looking at their feet. We got into a big black van and drove to the X factor house. Liam, and Zayn take our bags up to Liam and Harry and Zayns rooms.I'm bunking with Liam. Witch I'm tots ok with. May us with Zayn and Lily with Harry. Louis leads us to a big family room where two more boys are sitting. One has blond hair that's brown at the roots, and eyes that Are as blue as the sea. The other one however had long brown curly hair green eyes and a cheeky smile with dimples. Louis introduces the blonde as Niall and the brunette as Harry. They stand up to meet us Niall looks straight at May when he sees her you could tell that he liked her right away. I was hoping that Harry would look at Lily but instead he looked me! I'm with Liam doesn't he know that? The other boys come downstairs and Liam puts his arm around me." So, I see you've met Harry and Niall." He gestures towards them. Harry on the sofa playing Xbox and Niall talking with May. Poor Lily was sitting on a chair looking unsure of what to do. But I could see her staring longingly at Louis, who was apparently on his cell, talking to his girlfriend.does she like him? Ill confront her about it tomorrow."we'll lads" Liam starts." My beautiful girlfriend and I will be retiring for the evening. Goodnight gentleman,ladies" we go up to his room to sleep. I quick put on a t shirt and some shorts. I brush my teeth and put my hair up in a messy bun. Liam is already in bed. I slide under the covers, and put my head on his chest. I feel his arms tighten around my waist. He mumbles in my hair" I love you more than you can imagine." I smile and touch his cheek." I love you too Mr.Payne." He chuckled and we both fell asleep. Chap.5 May's POV Niall and I got along pretty well. And we were laughing at something when I glance at the clock. 1:07 geez was it late! I guess time flies when your having fun with a really cute guy." We'll Niall, this has been so much fun, but I'm pretty tired from the flight. I think I'm going to be heading to bed." He looks at me." Who are you rooming with?" "Uh Zayn I think." I say. I honestly couldn't remember. I just wasn't paying attention when Liam was telling us who we were rooming with as we were leaving the airport.i guess it might have been useful to. Oops. I slowly rise from the floor, were I have been sitting cross legged for hours with Niall laughing my ass off playing apples to apples. I help him clean up the cards and put the box back on the coffee table. He gives me a kiss on the cheek and tells me that Zayns room is up the stairs to the right, third door on the left. I nod, smile at his kindness, and hurry up the stairs. I find Zayns room. Well I wasn't really going to miss it. It said Zayn on the door. Of course. When I open the door I see Zayn on the bed on his laptop wearing basketball shorts, and no top. " Oh hey" he smiles at me. " Hi" I say shyly. "Don't be shy, love." He pats the spot next to him." Get ready for bed, the bathrooms across the hall, and hop in!" I smile at his kindness." Your suitcase is over there" he points to the corner where my bright red suitcase is lying. I walk over to it, open it, flip my hair over my left shoulder and pick out a T-shirt and some pj pants." Hey I just realized something" he says right as I turn around. " What's that?" I ask. " your suitcase matches you hair!" I giggle, then blush, and head to the bathroom to change. After I get into my nightclothes I brush my hair and put it into one long red braid going down my back. Yes I have waist long curly, red hair. I washed my face and took my colored contacts out. I had light blue eyes, but I made them brown with contacts.i hear someone say" wow" behind me. I spin around to see a very shocked Niall looking at me. " Spying on me are you Mr. Horan?" I ask quizzingly." Urm" he says uncomfortably. I giggle and put my hand on his shoulder. "It's okay I don't mind." He blushes and looks at his feet. He looks up suddenly." Why do you make your eyes brown May?" He looks genuinely confused about it. I laugh at him," because I hate my eyes, they're too icy" " no they're not. They're beautiful!" He argues back." Why are you here anyway Horan?" " I was wondering if you wanted to grab lunch with me tomorow?" He's so cute when he's nervous. " ofcourse! That sounds great!" I smile back at him. And walk past him out the door and open Zayns door. I whisper good night to Niall and close the door behind me. Zayn has ditched the laptop and was now on his iPhone." Well" he starts." Someone takes a long time to clean up. But looks even better than usual when she does!" I smile at him. Again like before he pats the spot next to him. I crawl in and see that he's on twitter. " Whatcha doing?" I ask him, but it's kind obvious that he was talking with his fans." Oh nothing " he says smiling down at me. He clicks the phone off and sets it on the nightstand. And settles down next to me. Surprisingly it wasn't awkward. It was like having a sleepover with your best guy friend. Or an older brother. I don't even know him that we'll. but he has welcomed me in a wonderful way. I drift off to sleep and start dreaming: my mom is at the table and my dad is making pancakes. Suddenly I hear a clatter and the three or us rush upstairs. My sister Genna, was sitting on her bed looking down at a shattered picture. I bent down to pick it up and saw the picture was of louis, he had broken her heart. I woke up in a sweat. No. That wouldn't happen. I didn't have a sister. And I dont think that Louis would do something like that. I realize that I must have been screaming because Zayn was up next to me, looking concerned. " Are you on?" He asked." I had a bad nightmare." I tell him. " tell it to me" I normally wouldn't have told him, but I trusted him. And I knew he wouldn't judge me by it. I told him every bit of it. When I finished telling him he didn't ask any questions. He pulled me to him and stroked my hair. He rubbed my back up and down soothingly. I fell asleep in his arms.
