6. One Step Closer

Emma's POV

The next day, Wyatt left. I already missed him. He had left his leather jacket with me to keep me warm. I wore it to school on top of my pink tank top and dark wash jeans. I took a deep breath, relishing in the fact that it still smelled like Wyatt. As I walked through the school, I kept getting stares. What the hell?

"What a slut..." A girl with dark brown hair was sending stares at me. 

"I heard she slept with Louis." A blonde girl in a cheer leading outfit said maliciously. 

"Why do they even like her? She's not even pretty." 

"I'd shag her in a second. She seems pretty easy..." A boy on the rugby team said, while looking me up and down. I grimaced. Was this really what people thought of me? I hadn't done anything wrong! So what if these boys were friends with me? I have a boyfriend at home! But at the same time, I couldn't shake the feeling of how nice and safe it felt while being wrapped up in Louis' arms. What was wrong with me? 

"Come on, ignore them." I felt Louis hand on the small of my back. I smiled at him as he led me to my locker. 

"People liked me at my old school. I guess it's just weird." I opened my locker and looked for my books for today's lessons. 

"Well, tomorrow's Friday, how about I help you get your mind off of it? We can take the train to London, and then train back on Sunday afternoon. I know how much you miss it there." I looked up at him and smiled, throwing my arms around him. 

"Yes Louis! I would love to!" 

Zayn's POV

We all sat down in glee class and Mr Howes cleared his throat, making us all look up. 

"Alright class, I hope you all have your songs picked out for this weeks assignment, 'Love Songs'. Who would like to go first?" I shot my hand up right away. 

"Alright Zayn, take it away." 

I grabbed a stool and sat right in front of Emma, then pointed to Jeremy, the pianist, signaling him to start. 

Emma's POV

"Everywhere I'm looking now

I'm surrounded by your embrace

Baby I can see your halo

You know your my saving grace

You're everything I need and more

It's written all over your face

Baby I can see your Halo

Pray it won't fade away"

As Zayn sang his song, my ears were filled with his powerful and soulful voice. I didn't know he could sing like that. I tried not to look at him, as his honey eyes were pouring their heart into mine. But I couldn't look away. He had me mesmerized. He was an angel all on his own. I couldn't move my eyes anywhere else. And he could tell. As he sang his last note, he sent me a smirk, and I looked away, blushing. Louis caught my eyes and raised his eyebrow. I just shook my head.

"Who's next?" I was going to raise my hand, but Liam's hand shot up. 

Again, he positioned his stool right in front of me. This was getting to be a little much. 

"And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life

It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
'Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home

Let me go home" 

His voice was beautiful, he almost sounded like Michael Buble, himself. It did something to me, and I couldn't understand it. Maybe I was just fangirling a little bit. I mean, who isn't attracted to talent? Again, my eyes were glued to someone, but this time, it was Liam. This was getting insane. As he sang the last note, he winked at me. I let out a gasp, and he laughed. 

Louis' POV

I hated watching the other boys sing straight to Emma's face. And I hated even more how she couldn't take her eyes away from them. Was I already losing? I didn't even have her, who was I trying to kid. But still, she was closest to me. If she was going to break up with her boyfriend for anyone, it would be me. 

"Mr Howes, can I be the last to go today?" I stood up, not really waiting for his reply. I placed my  stool front and center. Not in front of Emma, but I would be looking at her the whole time. 

"I won't soar, I won't climb

If you're not here, I'm paralyzed

Without you, without you

I can't look, I'm so blind

I lost my heart, I lost my mind

Without you
Without you

Oh, oh, oh!You! You! You!

WithoutYou! You! You!

Without you"

I sang with all of my heart. I could feel the blood rushing to my cheeks as I felt her eyes on me. I needed her to know that I was the only one for her. 


It had been two days since I sang Without You for Emily. And now it was back to glee class and everyone else had to sing their songs. Harry was first. 


"Isn't she lovely 

Isn't she wonderfull 
Isn't she precious 
Less than one minute old 
I never thought through love we'd be 
Making one as lovely as she 
But isn't she lovely made from love 

Isn't she pretty 
Truly the angel's best 
Boy, I'm so happy 
We have been heaven blessed 
I can't believe what God has done 
through us he's given life to one 
But isn't she lovely made from love 

Isn't she lovely"

I rolled my eyes. Harry always sang that song when he wanted to impress a girl. I almost laughed. But it got caught in my throat when I looked over and saw Emma smiling at Harry, as he blew a kiss towards her. All at once, Zayn, Niall, Liam and I threw Harry dirty looks, but he didn't even notice. He was too preoccupied with impressing Emma. He strolled off the stage and sat down next to Emma, slinging his arm over the back of her chair. 

"You're amazing." I heard her whisper to him. Next was Niall.

"I just wanna wrap you up

Wanna kiss your lips

I, I wanna make you feel wanted." Emma let out a squeal and when Niall finished she exclaimed, "that's my favourite song, Niall! You did such a good job!" Niall just smiled and blushed. Dang it. I thought my song would reach her. Guess not. And then I thought to myself, what if none of our songs really reached her? She had a boyfriend after all. 

Emma's POV

I couldn't believe it. All of these boys were amazing singers! But when they all sang to me, I felt like I was the only girl in the world. It was amazing. But in my heart, I knew that whatever it was that I was feeling was wrong. I knew they were all attracted to me from the first day, from the way they acted around me, and from the gossip I had heard. But I thought it would all stop once they met Wyatt. But they were so used to always winning that I guess it had no effect on them. 

"Emma? You're the only one left to go." I sighed, standing up. This is it. 

"Ehm, alright then. I'd like to dedicate this song to my mom. When I was a kid, she always used to talk about how my dad was the one for her. So yeah. This is for you, mom, wherever you are." I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes, but I knew that I had to go on for her. 

"Heart beats fast

Colors and promises

How to be brave

How can I love when I'm afraid

To fall

But watching you stand alone

All of my doubt

Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer


I have died everyday waiting for you

Darlin' don't be afraid

I have loved you for a

Thousand years

I'll love you for a

Thousand more"


I could feel the tears falling freely down my face, but I didn't care. As I finished the song, the room erupted into cheers. I just smiled, wiping my eyes. I really needed a hug. But as I approached my seat, there were five boys staring at me, almost daring me to choose which one of them to hug. 

Niall's POV

After all of that, she chose to hug Louis. I suppose it was his week, so she'd been spending the most amount of time with him, so she'd want to hug Louis. But as I watched her bury her head in his chest, I almost felt like I had lost her. I was the one who she had told the story of her mother about first. I thought she would want me. The thing is, this only gave me more motivation to work harder for my week.
