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.

46. Near the end

"I want to sing 'It's Gonna Be Me' by NSYNC." I tell Richard. I wave to Becca, and she waves her fingers back. But after her, Elizabeth waves too. Then looks away like it never happened.

The up beat of the song begins.

"It's gonna--be--me
Oh, yeah
You might've been hurt, babe
That ain't no lie
You've seen them all come and go, oh..
I remember you told me
That it made you believe in
No man, no cry
Maybe that's why
Every little thing I do
Never seems enough for you
You don't wanna lose it again
But I'm not like them
Baby, when you finally,
Get to love somebody
Guess what,
It's gonna be me..
You've got no choice, babe
But to move on, and you know
There ain't no time to waste
You're just too blind (too blind), to see
But in the end, ya know it's gonna be me
You can't deny
So just tell me why
Every little thing I do
Never seems enough for you
You don't wanna lose it again
But I'm not like them
Baby, when you finally
Get to love somebody (somebody)
Guess what (guess what)
It's gonna be me
It's gonna be me
Oh yeah...
There comes a day
When I'll be the one, you'll see..
It's gonna-gonna-gonna-gonna-gonna
It's gonna be me
All that I do
Is not enough for you
Don't wanna lose it
But I'm not like that
When finally (finally)
You get to love
Guess what (guess what)
Every little thing I do
Never seems enough for you (for you babe)
You don't wanna lose it again (don't wanna lose it)
But I'm not like them
Baby, when you finally
Get to love somebody (love..)
Guess what (guess what)
It's gonna be me
Every little thing I do (Oh...)
Never seems enough for you
You don't wanna lose it again (don't wanna lose it)
But I'm not like them
Baby, when you finally (baby when you finally)
Get to love somebody
Guess what (guess what)

It's gonna be me."

I set the mic on the mic stand and sit down next to the boys. The crowd finished applauding and Richard speaks. "We are nearing the end of the competition folks! We only have two people left to sing. Who will it be?" He reaches into the hat and pulls out a slip of paper. "Finishing off for the boys, Zayn!"

 

<Zayn POV>

I reach the microphone.

This song is for Britta.

"So how will you finish out for your team tonight, Zayn?"

"I want to do 'Hero' by Sterling Knight." I say into the mic. I take a deep breath and begin.

"I'm no Superman, I can't take your hand
Can't fly you anywhere you wanna go, yeah
I can't read your mind like a billboard sign
And tell you everything you wanna hear, but
I'll be your hero
I, I can be everything you need
If you're the one for me
Like gravity, I will be unstoppable
I, yeah I believe in destiny
I may be an ordinary guy without his soul
But if you're the one for me
Then I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
Then I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
Then I'll be your hero
Searchin' high and low
Tryin' every road
But if I see your face, I won't ignore it
I put my trust to fate
That two will come away
And if it's right, it's undeniable, yeah
I'll be your hero
I, I can be everything you need
If you're the one for me
Like gravity, I will be unstoppable
I, yeah I believe in destiny
I may be an ordinary guy without his soul
But if you're the one for me
Then I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
Yeah, I'll be your hero
So incredible, some kind of miracle
That when it's meant to be
I will become a hero
So I'll wait, wait, wait, wait for you
Yeah, I'll be your hero
I, I can be everything you need
If you're the one for me
Like gravity, I will be unstoppable
I, yeah I believe in destiny
I may be an ordinary guy without his soul
But if you're the one for me
Then I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
Then I'll be your hero
Could you be the one? Could you be the one?
Could you be the one for me?
Then I'll be your hero."

Great job, Malik. I think to myself.

"And with that we are down to our final contestant. Wrapping up tonight's competition and finishing up for the girls, Britta!"

 

<Britta POV>

I have the song chosen.

I know what to sing.

But

I

Can't

Do

It!

"Why did I even chose to do this, Katie?" I ask.

"Because you wanted to have fun instead of playing shuffleboard on the skydeck all night." Katie answers.

"I know, but I can't do this!" I tell her. "I can't sing in front of this many people. Who are FRENCH!"

"You sang in front of a crowd about this size a week ago at the employee talent show. If you can survive that crowd, you can survive this." She encourages me.

I can do this.

I walk up to the stage.

I can do this.

I reach the steps.

I can do this.

I walk up the steps.

I can do this.

I walk towards the microphone stand.

I can do this.

I reach the microphone stand.

I can't do this!

Dozens of eyes looking right at me. Oh, god I'm gonna puke.

This is it, Britta Ann Carter.

You can do this!

 

A/N: The next chapter is going to be shorter, but it's worth it.

William and Kate's baby was born yesterday! What do you think it's name is? I think it's either George or Arthur.

I said last chapter I had a little speech for One Direction and three years, but I put it into a mumble. It's titled "Three years of One Direction!!!" and it's the most recent mumble.

I learned the other day that I can take my phone with me to band camp! I also learned the camp is in Brinkhaven and it's called Pilgrim Hills. But I won't update that week.

Thanks for reading! Never sing the Star Spangled Banner while playing leapfrog.
