*Halfway Through Boot Camp*
I'm standing by Simon. All the boy contestants are dancing. It's a new thing this year. Louis is doing well, and so is Harry. I am watching Harry right now. He dances flawlessly. "So hawt," I think.
"Rosie," Simon whispers.
"Do you have a crush?"
"No," I blurt out. Then take a sip of my hot chocolate.
"Don't lie. Who is it?"
"Simon," says the choreographer.
"What does Simon mean by 'Oh'?" I think.
*Boot Camp Results*
Simon's calling out names, but I'm only listening for two. And... Neither is called. I just know both are devastated. Out in the hall I find Louis: a crying mess. He gives me a huge hug. "Lou, it's okay. Let's go get a cab." We walk outside. A blonde haired boy is out there with us. Eyes red.
"It's not fair," Louis says.
"Life's not fair," I reply.
Then some worker guy walks out, "Louis Tomlinson?"
"Yeah," my brother replies.
"And Niall Horan?"
"Yes," says the blonde haired boy.
"Simon wants to see you."
We walk back inside. Louis and Niall go to a group, while I go to Simon. He tells me to sit in the row of chairs behind him. I do as I'm told. Since he's my boss. Four girls and five boys are called back. All very nervous. A lady speaks up, "We called you nine back because we feel you're too talented to let go." They look around: confused.
"We think," Simon starts, "that you should move on to the Judge's House. As two separate groups." Happy screams erupt. I contain mine.
