Just to let you all know that this is NOT the end of the book, repeat NOT!!! It is basically just starting and good parts are coming up so PLEASE do not think that this is the end of the book!!! Seriously!!!


May's POV

Dani, El and I were escorted to our seats placed in the V.I.P area, near the front. I was tingling with nerves and hyperness, so excited for my first ever concert. Dani and El were talking among themselves happily and I had to admit, I felt like such an outcast.

These two were breathtakingly beautiful and then there was just me standing beside them awkwardly, running my hand through my hair to make me look somewhat nicer.

I shook my head and took my seat next to Dani. "You are going to love this May," squealed El, clapping her hands like an excited 6 year old who found out she was going to Disneyland.

I chuckled," I hope so, I am so excited!" We started to fangirl and it didn't take a second to know that I was going to be close friends with them.

Midway through our conversation, Dani started to squeal with delight and flapped her hand about, pointing over to the stage. "What is it Dani?" I laughed. "Five seconds of summer!" she shouted, gaining a few looks from people sitting near us.

"Oh my fucking god, I love them!" exclaimed El, looking over to where Dani was pointing. I squinted my eyes and saw 4 good-looking teenagers getting ready on stage. "Don't even get me started on their australian accents,"said Dani, gasping for air and waving her hand infront of her face.

"And don't even get me started on how both of you have boyfriends," I said, rolling my eyes at them. El glared at me and Dani simply waved her hand at me in dismissal," meh. I still love them, I guess that Liam is going to have step up to the mark."

She winked at me and I rolled my eyes for the second time," also you are about 6 years older than them, they look they are 12."

Dani glared at me and El raised her eyes at me," 12 or not, they are fit and funny." "Yeah, try explaining that to Louis and Liam." El chuckled and Danielle shoved me. "Anways, they are about to perform!" I said, getting a bit hyped up as well seeing as you had to admit. They were hot.


20 minutes later, 5 seconds of Summer walked off the stage, meaning only one thing. One Direction were about to perform. Dani and El had gotten over their crushes and I was waiting anxiously to see Josh come on stage.

"When are they coming on?" I asked impatiently, glancing at my watch. "Soon, soon. Gosh May, patience is a virtue," said El dissaprovingly, wiggling her eyebrows at me. "Yeah, well, I don't believe in virtues," I said giggling.

"Oooh, Josh is coming on," said Dani, nudging me slightly making me blush like hell. I sneaked a look out onto the stage and saw Josh walking on with a set of drum sticks to his little podium. Luckily, for me and my eyesight, he was on the side closest to us.

He settled down and looked up slightly, scanning my side of the arena. I waved like a hooligan and I could see him almost laugh. I smiled with glee and he smiled back, giving me a small wave back. A few people infront looked towards us and I awkwardly brought my hand down.

Dani started laughing and El just made kissy faces which made me even more embarrassed.


Soon enough, One Direction ran onto the stage, earning a massive chorus of high-pitched screams which burnt my ears. I groaned in pain and clutched my ears while Dani and El laughed at me.

"Come on May! Join in the fun!" shouted El, standing up and started to jump in the beat of the first song.

I laughed and started to dance around with the other two. I soon learnt that Dani was extremely good at dancing and she even showed us a few moves which me and El tried to do.

Emphasise the word: try. We looked more like flapping penguins who were trying to moonwalk.

“Ooh, look! The boys are flying!” I said excitedly, gazing up at the 5 boys on a platform being transported in the air to a middle stage. “Yup, they are going to be doing twitter questions now! Some of them are hilarious!” said Dani.

“Oh my god, yeah. One time, they got asked who would they marry in the band, then if they had to cheat on that guy, who would it be with! God, it was the funniest thing!” exclaimed El.

“I remember that!” said Dani, jumping up and down. “Come on guys, they are starting!” I said, pointing to the stage. Harry was explaining what was going on and I waited, almost ready to laugh at what they were going to say.

“So the first question is: try and sing the happiest song you know whilst portraying sadness,” said Louis. How the hell was that supposed to work?

Louis chose Harry and Liam who made a complete bombshell of it. Harry sang ‘If you’re happy and you know it’ and Liam sang ‘Always look on the Bright Side’. It was probably the funniest thing I had seen.

The next question, Zayn read out loud. “Sing one of the saddest songs you know”

He chose Niall and Louis who were casually dancing by the side. “So Niall, you go first!” said Harry.

Suddenly, I felt my eyes tear away from Josh who was waving to me and just stay on Niall. My eyes wouldn’t budge, I was totally fixed on him, like if it tore my eyes away from him that I something bad would happen.

“Um, I will sing… I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz,” he mumbled thoughtfully. The whole stadium screamed with delight. This was possibly the saddest song I knew.

He breathed out and started to hum the melody. The whole stadium was quiet, slight talking in the background who I felt like smacking over the head to tell them to ‘shut the fuck up’.

“When I look into your eyes

 It's like watching the night sky

 Or a beautiful sunrise.”

He turned slowly and faced the crowd towards us. His eyes lingered on the crowd around him and then raised his eyesight.

 “Well there's so much they hold

 And just like them old stars

 I see that you've come so far

 To be right where you are

 How old is your soul?”

His eyes had now reached our box and I felt myself go weak. I felt the same sensations I had felt in the room before. They felt so right, yet so wrong.

“I won't give up on us

 Even if the skies get rough

 I'm giving you all my love

 I'm still looking up.”

I felt like the whole world just vanished. Like it was only Niall and I were there. His voice rang through my ears, sending chills up inside me. I felt someone distantly tap me on the arm and call my name but I ignored them.

“And when you're needing your space

 To do some navigating—“

I ran. I fled. I pushed Dani to the side and sprinted for my life. I couldn’t do this anymore. Why was he doing this to me? Why did everything feel so wrong?
