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.

41. Heating up

<Liam POV>

"Go get 'em, Payne." Zayn pats my back as I get up and head to the stage. It's been a while since I sang solo for a competition. Hell, it's been more than three years since then! I now stand in front of the mic. Danielle smiles at me and I smile back.

"So what will you sing, Payne?" Geesh, everyone is calling me Payne these days. You all know I have a first name. It's Liam.

"I'm going to go with 'Cruise' by Florida Georgia Line; the remix with Nelly."

"So Britain is going country with a bit of hip hop?" I hear Elizabeth yell from her seat.

"Just because I'm from England doesn't mean I can sing other genres!" I yell back at her.

"Woah, woah!" Richard stops our yelling. "Okay, you ready, Payne?" Seriously?!

"Can you call me Liam?" I ask.

"Sure." He rolls his eyes. "Are you ready, Liam?" He exaggerates Liam. I nod.

 

"Baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up
What up Nelly, alright
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up
Yeah, when I first saw that bikini top on her
She's poppin' right out of the South Georgia water
Thought, "Oh, good Lord, she had them long tanned legs."
Couldn't help myself so I walked up and said,
Baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowin' stop signs through the middle
Every little farm town with you
And this brand new Chevy with a lift kit
Would look a hell a lot better with you up in it (come on)
So, baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up
Yeah, she was sippin' on Southern and singin' Marshall Tucker
We were falling in love in the sweet heart of summer
She hopped right up into the cab of my truck
And said, "Fire it up! Let's go get this thing stuck!"
Baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowin' stop signs through the middle
Every little farm town with you
And this brand new Chevy with a lift kit
Would look a hell a lot better with you up in it (come on)
So, baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
My windows down, my seats back,
My music up, and we ride.
Her legs up on my dashboard,
And it's just the way I like.
Hey, country girl, this country boy
Like everything about you.
Don't change a thing, no way.
You stay the same, I got you.
I like saw that, all that,
Head to toe you all that.
Tell ol' boy he call back,
Send a text say, "Fall back" 'cause
I can see you got a thing for the fast life.
So come on, shawty, let me show you what the fast like.
Whipping 'cross the border, Florida into Georgia.
'Cause, baby, you a song
And you make me wanna roll my, roll my, roll my, r-r-r-roll...
Baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowing stop signs through the middle
Every little farm town with you
And this brand new Chevy with a lift kit
Would look a hell a lot better with you up in it (come on)!
Baby, you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up
Get those windows down and cruise,
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up
Get those windows down and cruise,
I got my windows down and the radio up, get your radio up."

 

I set the mic back in place, and take a majestic bow. "Thank you for your consideration." I say and head back to my seat.

"The competition is stewing up now!" Richard announces. He reaches into the hat and pulls out the next name. "And now, representing the girls, Cassidy!"

 

<Cassidy POV>

Liam sure made me sound like I can't sing. But I can. I've done it at a lot of sleepovers. Britta even saw me.

I take a deep breath and head up.

"So what will it be tonight?" Richard asks. At least he didn't give me a hard time like Liam.

"I want to sing 'A Little Party Never Killed Nobody' by Fergie." I've liked that song for a while. "The Great Gatsby" is a great movie.

The music starts. I can show everyone what Cassidy is made of. Because she's me.

 

"I ain’t got time for you baby, either you’re mine or you’re not
Make up your mind sweet baby, right here, right now’s all we got
A little party never killed nobody, so we gon’ dance until we drop
A little party never killed nobody, right here, right now’s all we got
At least I miss trips around the world,
Don’t mean a thing if I ain’t your girl
A little party never killed nobody, so we gon’ dance until we drop
A little party never killed nobody, right here, right now’s all we got.

A little party never killed nobody, so we gon’ dance until we drop
A little party never killed nobody, right here, right now’s all we got
All we got, all we got, all we got, all we got
All we got, all we got, all we got, all we got
Glad that you made it, look around
You don’t see one person sitting down
They got drinks in their hands and the room’s a bust
At the end of the night maybe you’ll find love
Fake chit chat ’bout the things they got
And my stout reputation keeping it hot girl
At the party of the year I’m a master plan
If you make me realize I’m your man
If the people get loud,
Underneath the moonlight
Hotsy-totsy, paparazzi,
Hold it while I take this pic
Speak easy,
Rocking the fellas I’m breezy
Hope you can keep up boys,
'Cause believe me,
I’m the bee's knees
It don’t mean a thing if I give you my heart
If you tear it apart, no, uh, uh, ah, oh
It don’t mean a thing if I ain’t in your eyes
Papa that ain’t gonna fly, no, uh, uh, ah, oh

It don’t mean a thing if I give you my heart
If you tear it apart, no, uh, uh, ah, oh
It don’t mean a thing if I ain’t in your eyes
Papa that ain’t gonna fly, no, uh, uh, ah, oh
Just one night’s all we got
Just one night’s all we got

Just one night’s all we got

Just one night’s all we got
What do you think GoonRock?
Are you ready?

A little party never killed nobody, so we gon’ dance until we drop
A little party never killed nobody, right here, right now’s all we got.

A little party never killed nobody, so we gon’ dance until we drop
A little party never killed nobody."

 

"Wow!" Richard says after I'm done. "That was fantastic!" I thank him and head back to my seat. The girls were giving me high fives all around, and I got a hug from Brit. The boys, they just sat there like lumps on a log.

"Told you I can sing." I say to them.

"You never said that." Harry states the obvious.

"Alrighty!" Richard announces as me and Harry keep on bickering. He announces the next name but I didn't hear it.

I think it was Josie.

 

<Josie POV>

I made a mistake and he still doesn't forgive me for it.

Now he's all googly eyed for Rachel.

Now, Niall Horan, I want you back.

 

A/N: Okay, so I haven't updated this story in a while. But have a few announcements:

 

1) Marching band season starts soon, so fewer updates will happen.

 

2) Florida Gulf Coast Men's Basketball won an ESPY.

 

3) No, I haven't listened to "Best Song Ever" because I'm a good person and can wait.

 

4) I have a new movella coming soon!

 

5) I hate LeBron James (I'm from the Cleveland area).

 

6) I wanted to put in a number 6.

 

Thanks for reading! And be sure to confront hobos in the woods over your summer break!
