Torn (1D before fame)

Ashton is a normal teenage girl. She is, however, a star basketball player at Glentown high school. She doesn't have much time for relationships, or anything else for that matter. She also plays softball. All that she ever has time for is basketball, softball, and grades. A new group of boys comes to her school. They join the soccer team and she sees them more than she would like too. What happens?


5. Performing

Ashton's p.o.v
About a week has gonna by and the principal says that our performance is going to be tomorrow!! Harry and I are soloists and the rest are doing the chorus. We are going to sing 'The A Team' by Ed Sheeran. We wanted to make sure that everyone knew the song. My coaches found out and said that as long as I didn't get too carried away with this and the boys that I could continue. They pretty much control my entire life... I have never made a big decision without them. Even when we started this group, I made sure that they approved. I really need to make my own decisions. Anyways, I was ready for this! Harry and I practice after school everyday and sometimes the guys come over on the weekend and we watch movies. They are really great. We had two softball games this weeks and they went! They were becoming some of my closest friends.

I just don't need to fall for any of them. The last time I fell for a guy, I only got hurt. And, if I do, it will only make my life harder. Oh well, time for softball!

*at home*

Harry's p.o.v

She is the most amazing person I have ever met. I thought when I moved to America, I would never meet someone like her. She seems like she doesn't want to fall for someone though. When we get carried away in the music, she just walks into a different room for about two minutes and then we keep going. Why is she so distant? We had soccer practice today and I swear I have never met a better American team than this one. I would have to fight for a spot on the field. The lads and I were some of the best, but there were a lot of competitors. Will I even have time to sing?

*performing day*

Ashton's p.o.v

Right when we got to school, we went to the auditorium. I had to miss practice, so that was a fault. When I got there, all the others, except Harry and I, were ready on stage. We were going to run through the performance twice before the show. All it was was one song, but we had to perform in front of some college scouts. Something about a real future in the business, I don't know. Once we had rehearsed, the whole school poured into the auditorium. I smiled as we started. I went first.

'White lips, pale face, breathing in the snow flakes.

Burnt lungs, sour taste.'

Harry chimed in,

'Light's gone, days end. Struggling to pay rent.

Long nights strange men.'

Us together sang,

'And they say, she's in the class A team, stuck in her daydream.

Been this way since 18 but lately, her face seems

Slowly sinking, wasting, crumbling like pastries, and they scream,

The worst things in life come free to us cause we're just under the upper hand,

And go mad for a couple grams, and she don't wanna go outside, tonight.

And in the pipe she flies to the motherland, or sells love to another man.

It's too cold outside, for angels to fly.'

And so on into the song. Once we finished, the whole crowd gave a standing ovation. We bowed and walked off of the stage. When I sat down by my friends, they all told me I did fantastic and that they never knew that I could sing. I did never really show an interest in it. The principal went onstage and thanked all of us and said that we were dismissed. Just as we left, I heard my name being shouted by someone. I couldn't see because if the large amount of people, but the kept hollering my name.
