Little Talks

"I don't like walking around this old and empty house."
~
"Are you sure about this Zayn?" I asked with my hands grasping over the railing, wind blowing through my hair. "Don't worry." He tells me. "I'm nervous as much as you. But these little talks don't last long."
My summer was basically ruined thanks to my mother. After high school graduation, she forced me to work on the cruiseline she owns instead of giving me a choice if I want to like my older sister. But the first day of the cruise, the first day I saw them being complete dumbos. That day I didn't know that I would love one of them. Zayn was right, these little talks don't last long.

39. Duet

Richard looks at his clipboard and skims through it. "Singing a duet, representing the girls, Nicole and Eleanor!"

We all clap as Nicole and Eleanor get up on stage. They started whispering to each other something. 

<Nicole POV>

"So we're going with the original plan?" I ask Eleanor as we get on stage. 

"Yes," she answers. "We want Louis to know how we feel as his buddies." 

"Right." I reply. 

We both step up to the mic. "So what song will you two be singing?" 

"We want to sing 'Lucky' by Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliat." Eleanor answers. I stand by the stand and wait for the song to start. 

The song starts, and we begin. 

"(Nicole)
Do you hear me? I'm talking to you.
Across the water across the deep blue ocean.
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying.

(Eleanor)
Boy I hear you in my dreams.
I feel your whisper across the sea.
I keep you with me in my heart.
You make it easier when life gets hard.

(Both)
I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend.
Lucky to have been where I have been.
Lucky to be coming home again.
Ooh ooh ooh

(Eleanor with Nicole repeating after)
They don't know how long it takes.

(Both)
Waiting for a love like this.
(Eleanor with Nicole repeating after)
Every time we say goodbye.

(Both)
I wish we had one more kiss.
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will.
I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend.
Lucky to have been where I have been.
Lucky to be coming home again.
Lucky we're in love in every way.
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed.
Lucky to be coming home someday.

(Nicole)
And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet.
You'll hear the music fill the air,
I'll put a flower in your hair.

(Eleanor)
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning 'round
You hold me right here, right now.

(Both)
I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh."

We finish the song on a good note. We walk down and hug Louis. "I'm sorry I was a jerk friend." He apologizes. 

"Apology accepted." We both say at the same time and take our seats. 

"Alright, way to start the competition!" Richard says. He pulls out a random hat. "Our next singer is..." He pulls out a piece of paper and opens it like Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games. "Representing the girls, again, Katie!"

<Katie POV>

C'mon, Katie. You can do this!

A/N: yes, a short chapter, but it's midnight for me and I wanted to get a chapter in before I pass out and sleep (phone update). So the next chapter will definitely be longer than this. 

My basement is getting new carpeting soon! So then I can go down without having to wear my shoes all the time!

Thanks for reading! Goodnight!
