It all started with a.....poster?

Music is my escape, my escape from reality. Whenever I'm sad, angry, upset, or any other type of emotion I sing. In other words, I sing my lungs out. Luckily I live in the attic so my parents don't hear me, but what would happen if someone from an international boyband hears me? Will he just knock me down like everyone else, or sweep me off my feet?


5. I need you


Alex's POV

I woke up in someone's arms, but not knowing who's they were I jumped up and screamed at the top of my lungs.

*scream* *scream* 

Since it was still dark outside I couldn't see the guys face, but there was just enough light to see him stand up looking around. When he spotted me he looked some-what......relieved? He ran up to me engulfing me in a bear hug and spun me around. 

"Oh my gosh Alex!" He sobbed, "I thought I lost you! Never leave me ever again!" He cried. Suddenly I recognized his voice....LOUIS! I jumped up onto him, wrapping my legs around his waist and hugged him so tight I'm pretty sure he couldn't breath. He inhaled my scent taking slow breaths making sure that this wasn't a dream. I was so happy to see him that I didn't realize that he was crying. I put my finger under his chin forcing his beautiful blue eyes to look into mine. He was still crying with tears flowing down his cheek. 

"Hey, I'm here now no need to cry. Shhhhh everything's fine now. No need to worry." I whispered comforting things in his ear until he stopped crying. He sniffled, causing me to laugh while he just hugged me tight. Suddenly I started to wonder about where my mom was.

"Hey, Lou where's my mom?" I asked full of concern as he started bawling his eyes out.

"Sh.. Hey look at me. Let me see that VERY handsome smile of yours." That made him laugh as he looked up, but once he saw me he started to look down again. Before he could look down I picked up his chin making him look up at me.

"Hey, Lou it's all right you can tell me anything." I said calming him down as he took a few deep breaths.

"Y-y-your mom.........has.......c-c-c-ca-cancer." and just like that my world came tumbling down. I ran upstairs slamming the door behind me as I grabbed all the clothes I could get into my small suitcase and ran downstairs again facing a crying Louis. Once he saw me he ran up to me and hugged me, making me feel safe and peaceful, but sadly all good things have to end. He slowly let go and looked at my bag that had all my clothes in it.

"Where are you going?" He asked with so much concern it killed me knowing that this would probably be that last time I saw him. I took a deep breath. 

"I'm going to the hospital to see my mom. I'm not leaving the hospital until she gets better." I said while having tears stream down my face. He looked sad.

"alex....You're mom has Pancreas Cancer, they caught the cancer too late for them to be able to do anything about it.....She only has a few more weeks to live." I ran up to Louis and sobbed onto his chest.

"Would you like to go see her?" I shook my head no. I didn't want to break down.

"You know that would make her REALLY happy, and maybe you can stay the night there. I'll even stay with you the WHOLE time." He said making me want to go see my mom. I nodded my head saying that I wanted to go now. He let go of me and walked to the door, but I stayed where I was. He stared at me confused until I raised my arms up like a little kid that wants to be carried. He let out a loud laugh before he walked over to me and picked me up carrying me to the car. Once we got to the hospital I suddenly changed my mind. I didn't want to be here anymore. When Louis got out of the car and walked over to my side to open my door I locked the car doors. He looked at me confused, but then I started to cry and he looked at me sympathetically and unlocked the car (he had the keys in his hand-.-) and picked me up cradling me to his chest as he walked into the hospital. He asked for my mom's hospital room and they gave it to him. He walked into the elevator still cradling me as we were in the elevator. When we got to my mother's room he walked in slowly as I hid my face in his chest. 

"Hey Ms. Amy" He said to my mom very politely as he sat down with me on his lap. She coughed.

"Please, we've been over this, just call me Amy." She said smiling. I stared at my mom in amazement that she could keep a smile  on her face, even though she only had a few weeks left to live.

"H-h-hi mommy." I said unsurely, as if this was all a dream...More like a nightmare.

"Hey Alex, please don't be sad. You have a long life ahead of you and I don't want you to waste it on being sad about my death." She said in a demanding voice. I nodded my head.


The weeks went by slowly as I stayed at the hospital with Louis by my side. I woke up hearing a flat line. I panicked as I woke up I saw around 3 doctors standing over my mother. I started to cry as Louis wrapped his arms around me saying comforting things into my ear and telling me everything was going to be alright. I ran up to my mother screaming and crying for her to wake up.

"PLEASE, MOM DON'T LEAVE ME! MOM" I yelled as Louis picked me up and sat me down on the couch with his warm arms around me.

"I need you." I whispered as I fell into a great slumber as Louis sang to me.

Louis's POV

I knew this was hard on Alex, but I needed to calm her down so I started singing to her. Even though the song had nothing to do with the situation it calmed her down, making her fall asleep.

Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open

The tricky thing
Is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score

Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open

So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you'd make it this far
But turn around (turn around), oh they've surrounded you
It's a showdown (showdown) and nobody comes to save you now
But you've got something they don't
Yeah you've got something they don't
You've just gotta keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes

Keep your feet ready
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open

(Keep your eyes open  [4x])

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping

Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
Keep your ey-eyes open
