I Found You.

It's her big day. The day of the end of the year talent show at school. She wouldn't be so darned nervous if her vocal coach hadn't invited scouts. Lacie Quinn hadn't been so nervous in her entire life. But one old friend's appearance might be able to give her the confidence she needs. But the question is.......How did he find her?

2. Big Day

1. Big Day


*Lacie's POV*


I don't want to get up. I don't want to take a shower. I don't want to get dressed. I don't wa-

"Lacie Ashlyn Quinn! Get out of bed or no breakfast for you!" Me mum yelled from the kitchen.

I grumbled and slowly sat up. The extreme sunlight leaked into my room causing me to squint.  I can't believe that I'm am almost 19 years old and my mum still uses my middle name. It's so embarrassing. 

I got up and walked over to my small washroom. I turned on the water, plugged my iphone into the speakers and let it blare. I stripped and hopped in the steamy shower and tried to wake myself up. 


 I wrapped a towel around myself and walked to my closet and picked this. set

The talent show wasn't until tonight, so I planned on going over to my vocal coachs' house to run over my song and my routine. I was really nervous and I needed all of the support that I could get.

I tied my hair back and ran down the stairs to find a classic Irish breakfast waiting for me. A quite giant one, I must say.

"Hi, mum." I said to my mother who was hunched over the stove cooking something. 

"Would you mind driving yourself to Tammy's? I have to drive Collin to football practice." she said.

"Yeah, that's fine. I am really too nervous to eat right now, mum." I said.

"Well it'll be in the fridge!" she said as I walked out the door. I hopped in my car. My dad had actually taught me how to drive the UK way and I do actually prefer it. My car had been a used car but had never been really driven. 

I spent most of the day at Tammy's (my vocal coach) house. She really didn't mind because she knew how important this is. If I do good tonight, I could get a full scholarship to the best music universities that there are. I am almost too nervous to function. Also because I'll be playing guitar too so it makes it even more nerve racking. Eh...

It's Saturday...Nobody from school is going to be there...I hope.


*Niall's POV*

I am freaking out. I am actually going to see her again. I finally found her...


*Lacie's POV*

**30 minutes until show**


I am going to vomit. 

Only a handfull of people had arrived. Mostly family and friends of the other contestants. My mum texted me saying she'd be here soon so I was lucky that I would have one person here for me.

Currently, I was pacing backstage while all of the other acts were preparing. Tammy was here with me trying to force me to do vocal warm ups but I was way to nervous. But of course I will be nervous right up until I sit down at the microphone. And then I'll be completely fine like always.

"You should probably start getting dressed, hun." Tammy said. Her vibrant red hair was spiked up which made me slightly calm down for some reason.

I went back into the dressing room and grabbed my clothing bag. My outfit matched the song pretty well so I was hoping it would help me get into the mood and not choke. I really hope that nobody from school is going to be here. Even though school finished yesterday, they still lived in this town...

I got dressed into my outfit which I liked a lot because it was really pretty and it flowed nicely. set


**5 minutes until showtime**


I was so nervous... 90 minutes until I had to sing in front of hundreds of people...

I sneaked a look of the people. It had to be more than 300. I looked to the area where Tammy said the scouts would be. There they were. In fancy suits and clipboards reading and writing simultaneously. God, they were terrifying. 

I paced...and paced...and paced...


*Niall's POV*

I can't believe that I am actually in the same building as her. It's been more than 6 years. I promised myself not to go in until she was announced and I don't know how I am keeping from running backstage.

The show was about to start so I just popped my head through the door to watch because I had asked and she was planned to go on last. 

*89 minutes later*

A big man in a suit came out with notecards in his hand and a microphone in the other

"Ladies and Gentleman, we have our very last act of tonight's competition! She is a little nervous, so let's give a big round of applause for Miss Lacie Quinn!!!"

My heart dropped.

and dropped.

and dropped.


She was absolutely stunning. She looked so much different. She wasn't that girl that I used to ride my bike with to primary school. She was amazing.


*Lacie's POV*

I walked out on stage with my guitar slung around my back as the crowd clapped. imgres

I sat down on the stool that had been placed next to the mic stand.

"Hi every one! I hope you all like this song!" I said. All of the lights beamed down and created a single spotlight on me. I took a deep breath and started to play the first notes of Safe and Sound.

"I remember..."


*Niall's POV*


"I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, "I'll never let you go"
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down..."

Her voice was so angelic and fragile. It was amazing. I watched her eyes and saw where her eyes were focused and I stepped right there when she started the second verse. She defiantly noticed me and her voice cracked. Our eyes locked...


*Lacie's POV*


Oh my god. It's him. It's really him. He is standing there. Listening to me sing. Oh my god! Sing!

"Don't you dare look out your window, darling,
Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold on to this lullaby
Even when the music's gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Our eyes stayed locked through the whole performance. He was smiling like an idiot and kept on winking. I struggled not to rush because I needed to touch him. Make sure it was real. My Niall.


Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
La La 
La La 
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
La La 

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound...

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh oh oh."


As soon as I finished the song people roared and I put my guitar on the stool as fast as I could.


*Niall's POV*


She quickly put her guitar on the stool and ran off the stage down the stairs and ran towards me as the spotlight followed her. Even though she was in stilettos, she could run pretty fast. Every single pair of eyes were on her. 

She jumped on me and wrapped her legs around my waist in a bone crushing hug. She buried her face in my neck. It was a complete movie moment. 

"Hi." I whispered as I placed her down. The spotlight was now on the 2 of us but I really didn't care. I was here. With Lacie Quinn. My Lacie.

"What-I mean-How-I mean--" she stuttered.

"I'll explain later." I said. We separated and I grabbed her hand leading her through the doors.

"That was amazing." I said.

"How is this even possible? How are you here? You didn't forget about me!" she said.

I felt sort of offended. "Forget about you?! Lacie, I have thought about you every day since you left. You were---are my best friend. I would never forget about you." I said staring into her eyes. I wrapped my arms around her small waist and hugged her for a great amount of time.

"We have to go backstage for the rest." she said.

I smiled at her as she grabbed my hand and let me backstage. As soon as we got there the same man in the suit walked out on stage and all of the other acts were watching with us on the side.

"Ladies and gentlemen, what a night! So much talent in one school! But, of course, there can only be one winner." he said

Lacie was squeezing my hand as he paused.

"The judges have come to a decision," he said as he opened his little envelope, "The winner...of the 2013 Central Los Angeles High School Talent Show.........is..........................................................................................................................................................LACIE QUINN!!!!" he yelled.

Lacie squealed and ran out on stage. Some people gave her a big trophy and a wad of money and she ran back to me. She gave the stuff to some woman with red spiky hair and gave me an enormous hug.

"Nice job, Lace." I said. I lightly pecked her cheek and separated. 

"I can't believe that I actually won!" she said jumping up and down.

"Can I take you to dinner?" I said with a grin.

"Of course, I just have to tell me mum." she said. We found Mrs. Quinn and I was welcomed by an engulfing hug.

"You two go have fun! Niall, you're welcome to stay at the house if you like! Always room for you!" she yelled as we walked away. I would gladly take that offer. (tehehe)

Hand in hand we walked out to my .car, which I will admit is a bit flashy. imgres .

"This is your car?!?" she squealed.

"Yup." I said like it was no big deal. I opened the passenger door for her and jumped in the other side. 

I was finally with her. My best friend. My favorite person in the world. Lacie Quinn. My Lacie...


*Lacie's POV*


"We can go to this little Italian restaurant downtown. Me mum's friend owns it." I said as Niall drove.

"Direct me!" he said.

I told him where to go and I turned on the radio. Coincidentally, Little Things was on.

Niall started to sing it and I joined him. His voice made me melt inside. Sure, I can listen to the cd but in person...he is amazing.

I quickly turned of the music as we pulled into the parking lot.

"How did you find me?" I asked. He parked the car and looked at me.

"Well it's a bit of a long story..." he said.

"My ears are open!" I said.

"Well I was reading through our old texts on the plane..." he said nervously, "and I saw that you said you were living in L.A. So I kept thinking about you. And then I had to go meet Simon for something and I overheard him talking on the phone and he said he was sending a couple of scouts to a talent show at a secondary school. And then I heard your name and I asked him about it and after a while I got him to tell me the name of your school. And then I drove here and here we are now." he said.

"Oh my god, Niall, That's so sweet! Can we go eat now? I am starved!"I said.

He smiled and ran to open my door. We walked into the restaurant and ate and talked. 

We drove to my house and I offered for him to stay here. He quickly accepted.

"Yeah, that's great! Let me just call the lads so the won't get worried.

I walked inside while Niall made his phone call. It was almost 10:00pm and my mum was waiting in the kitchen. She simply nodded and walked up the stairs. Niall walked in a few moments later with a pair of shorts in his hand. I let out a large yawn as he did.

"Bed?" I asked.

"Bed." he said and nodded.

I grabbed his hand and led him upstairs. I went into my bathroom to change. I left the door open because we were so close that it really didn't matter. I changed into this set and washed my makeup off. When I came out Niall was in shorts and shirtless. He smiled down at my "Bel Air, California" sweatshirt and I hadn't even realized until now, that it used to be his. 

We both sang, "In west Philadelphia born and raised,On the playground where I spent most of my days, Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school, When a couple of guys, they were up to no good, Started making trouble in my neighborhood, I got in one little fight and my mom got scared,And said 'You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air'"

And with that, Niall picked me up and threw me onto my full-size bed. I giggled uncontrollably, as he lifted up the covers and hopped into bed beside me. I faced my back towards him and cuddled my face into the pillow. It's not like I haven't been in the same bed as Niall, just not a 19-year-old-shirtless-Niall. Niall switched off the light. he turned over and put his arms around my waist pulling me closer to him. I flipped over and snuggled my face into his bare chest. He played with my ponytail.

"I found you." he whispered.

"I'm glad you did." I said.

I drifted to sleep while Niall played with my hair. Seconds before I fell asleep he pecked my forehead and said, "Me too, Lacie...Me too..."
