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.

45. Winding down

<Becca POV>

You can do this, Bec. For your team, and for Rachel who is now heartbroken because she saw her crush kissing someone else recently. I don't know if you'd call Niall a crush, but she likes him a lot. 

"So what's your song?" Richard asks me. 

"I'll be singing 'How to be a Heartbreaker' by Marina and the Diamonds." Rachel looks up with a small smile. She knows that song. 

"Rule number one
Is that you gotta have fun
But baby when you're done 
You gotta be the first to run
Rule number two 
Just don't get attached to 
Somebody you could lose
So let let me tell you 
This is how to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like a little danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger, a player
Singing i la-la-la-love you
How to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like the look of danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger, a player
Singing I la-la-la-love you
At least i think i do
Cause i la-la-la-love you 
Rule number three
Wear your heart on your cheek
But never on your sleeve
Unless you want to taste defeat
Rule number four
Gotta be looking pure
Kiss him goodbye at the door 
And leave him wanting more, more
This is how to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like a little danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger, a player
Singing I la-la-la-love you
How to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like the look of danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger, a player
Singing I la-la-la-love you 
At least i think i do
Cause I la-la-la-love you
Girls we do whatever it will take
Cause girls don't want 
We don't want our hearts to break in two
So its better to be fake cant risk losing in love again babe
This is how to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like a little danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger a player
Singing I la-la-la-love you
How to be a heartbreaker
Boys they like the look of danger
We'll get them falling for a stranger a player
Singing I la-la-la-love you
Cause I la-la-la-love you
At least I think I do." 

I set the mic down and step down. The club applauded and I walk towards Rachel. As I hug her, I give Niall the death glare. Nobody hurts my best friend, especially if he's some big time pop star. "Wow! You showed the boys off! Up next..." Richard pulls out a random piece of paper. "Elizabeth!"

<Elizabeth POV>

I've sung before. 

With family. 

And at sleepovers. 

But never at a French karaoke club. 

I get up and walk to the mic. Brit helped choose the song that I'm going to sing now. "And what will you be singing for us tonight, Liz?" 

"I want to sing 'Thinking About You' by Frank Ocean." 

"Okay, you ready?" He asks. 

"Ready Freddy." I reply. 

"A tornado flew around my room before you came 
Excuse the mess it made, it usually doesn't rain 
In Southern California, much like Arizona
My eyes don't shed tears, but, boy, they bawl 
When I'm thinkin' 'bout you 
(Ooh, no, no, no) 
I've been thinkin' 'bout you 
(You know, know, know) 
I've been thinkin' 'bout you 
Do you think about me still? 
Do ya, do ya? 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh) 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh) 
No, I don't like you, I just thought you were cool 
Enough to kick it 
Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho 
Since you think I don't love you, I just thought you were cute 
That's why I kiss you 
Got a fighter jet, I don't get fly it, though 
I'm lyin' down thinkin' 'bout you 
(Ooh, no, no, no) 
I've been thinkin' 'bout you 
(You know, know, know) 
I've been thinkin' 'bout you 
Do you think about me still? 
Do ya, do ya? 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh) 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh) 
Yes, of course 
I remember, how could I forget? 
How you feel? 
And though you were my first time 
A new feel 
It won't ever get old, not in my soul 
Not in my spirit, keep it alive 
We'll go down this road 
'Til it turns from color to black and white 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh) 
Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead) 
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)."

I've never sung that good in my life. I'm grinning to my eyes. Everyone applauds for me as I set the mic down and head back. 

"I told you it was a good choice." Britta tells me. 

"Yes you did." I say. 

"Well, well, well, we only have three more people in the competition left!" Aw, but I'm having fun! "Up next, the man representing the male generation in this club, Harry!" 

<Harry POV> 

This is it. This is your chance to get Becca to notice you. I wave to her as I walk up. "Good luck, Styles." I hear Elizabeth's voice below me. 

"Thanks." I reply. 

Oh, god. What do I sing? 

A/N: hunger satisfied, but tiredness is conquering over. 

So yesterday was awesome! I officially love the Best Song Ever music video! 

So this chapter goes out to five awesome people who I know won't see this (rather much I wouldn't want them to, but...). You already know them because I say their names like ten thousand times in this story and my other ones. So to Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik, happy three year anniversary of when the five of you were put together. 

I have prepared a little speech, but it's 3:14 am. So next chapter! 

Thanks for reading! I'm not a hobo living under the Golden Gate Bridge in a portapotty.
