37. At The Beach
*A Few Hours Later*
There's about an hour 'till we land. We've been talking business the whole time. Even now. My job's going to start being interesting once the live shows start.
*One Day Before Judge's House*
To calm the boys down, we've gone to the beach. They've practiced hard and are ready for tomorrow. The song they chose is 'Torn'. I just know they'll do well.
"Lou, please be careful," I say from the towel I'm sitting on.
"Yes mom," he teases.
"Girls, come and swim with us," Harry calls.
"No thank you."
He gives puppy dog eyes.
"I'm not getting in the water, Styles."
I look at Zayn sitting by me, "Why don't you swim?"
"I'm afraid of water."
"You swam at Harry's house."
"Yeah. But I was in the shallow end."
"Oh," I turn and face Emily. "How happy are you right now? One to ten."
"Eleven," she answers.
Then a scream pierces my ears. I look for it's owner, and my eyes find Louis. Everyone runs to him. "What happened?" Niall asks.
"Sea urchin," Lou says.
"Oh dear," I say.
