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.

5. My rough day

I finish gathering laundry from the cabins in which people are crazy enough to stay the night before we leave the dock. I head over to the laundramat we have here on the fourth floor. I step into the elevator with the cart and head up.

Then I hear Marvin on the intercom as I step off. "Ladies and gentlemen, we are about to depart from the Florida dock. So get ready for the thrill ride of your life and enjoy your time on the Santa Monica Cruise. We will be stopping in Paris, England, China, Ghana, Japan, and many other places this summer! So get ready! I'm Marvin and I'm the mysterious voice for the younger children. Peace!"

I chuckle to myself as I walk out of the laundramat. I throw the smock on the rack and head to the skydeck. I reach into my pockets and take out my headphones and turn on my favorite old Lindsay Lohan song.

"Saturday steppin' into the club
The music makes me wanna tell the DJ
Turn It Up
I feel the energy all around
And my body can't stop moving to the sound
But I can tell that you're watching me
And you're probably gonna write what you didn't see
Well I just need a little space to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy
Why can't you just let me
Do the things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand why
Would you wanna bring me down
I'm only having fun
I'm gonna live my life
(but not the way you want me to)
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is
Here we are back up in the club
People taking pictures
Don't you think they get enough
I just wanna be all over the floor
And throw my hands up in the air to a beat like (What?)
I've gotta say respectfully
I would like it if you take the cameras off of me
'Cause I just want a little room to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy
Why can't you just let me
Do the things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand why
Would you wanna bring me down
I'm only having fun
I'm gonna live my life
But not the way you want me to
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is
I just need to free my mind (my mind)
Just wanna dance and have a good time (good time)
I'm tired of rumors (rumors)
Followed (followed, followed, followed, followed, followed)
What they (follow) me
Why can't they (they they they-they-they) let me live
Take this for just what it is
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is"

That's when Katie pulls my right earpiece out of my ear.

"Brit, what are you doing?" She shrieked.

"I finished laundry. Now I'm listening to music, what do you think I'm doing?" I tell her.

"Well, mom wants one of us to check on the skydeck. And since I'm busy," Yeah, busy with what, Miss Perfect? "You need to check on the skydeck."

"Well, if you just so happen to notice, I'm on my way to the skydeck. You and your perfect little life can scdaddle out of my sight. I'm already having a rough day." I complain and walk away.

"What's wrong?" She asks. Ugh, she's so overprotective of me, too.

"Well, there is this group of five annoying guys. Some don't act their age and there's this one who is extremely flirtatious around me and he and the others really bother me. And no, I don't them from school or anywhere from home. They're from the UK or something."
She wraps her arm around my shoulder, and I gently push it off. "Who are they? Maybe we can sort things out and maybe become friends with them." She asks as we walk through the entranceway to the skydeck.

On cue, I see Harry and Louis playing a game of shuffleboard with Liam and Zayn on the side watching and chatting away. Louis hit the ten spot and starts dancing because he beat Harry. Over by the buffet area, I can see Niall piling his plate with a bunch of breakfast foods that the kitchen put out for the passengers.

"Them." I answer pointing. "The four over by that suffleboard, and the one by the buffet. The blonde guy. Those are the ones I was talking about."

I wait for Katie to reply, but she hasn't. When I looked at her, her face was pale. "Kate, are you okay?" I ask. I wave my hand in front of her face to see if I can catch her attention. "Kate? KATE?!" I yell.

"BRIT I HEARD YOU!" She screamed. "But....T...That's...O...O-One D-Direction!" She shrieked/whispered.

"Who?" I ask.
