Louis' Best Friend

Me and Louis Tomlinson were the best of friends. I was so happy for him when he told me about auditioning for the X factor. But once One Direction were formed, we started growing apart, we didn't see eachother as much, and didn't speak as much. He was too busy with his whole new life.


13. Chapter 13

"Hey Lou!" I said as I answered my phone. I was alone in my hotel room this time sat watching tv. I was just flicking trough channels trying to find something to watch.

"Hey Em!"

"How's it going? What's challenge 3?" I asked.

"So basically," he started. "Nicole Scherzinger is gonna be joining Louis and Simon to help them decide. And we have a choice of 40 songs to sing to them, alone on stage."

"Oh yeah, what do you think you're going to sing?" 

"Not really decided yet." He told me. "I'm thinking Adele - Make You Feel My Love."

"Yeah! Sing that! I've heard you singing it before and it's amazing!" 

"Do you think?" He asked.

"Yeah definitely!" 

"Ok, we'll I better go! Need to go practice! I'll call you as soon as I've auditioned! Bye!"

"Bye!" I hung up and sat back on my bed. I picked up the hotel phone and called for room service.


I'd only moved from my room once today to go down to the lobby shop to buy some magazines. I didn't feel like doing much, just wanted to be lazy. So I was sat on my bed reading though the latest Vogue admiring all the beautiful models when my phone rang again.

"Lou! How did it go?"

"I'm really not sure. I'm so nervous Em. I'm shaking so bad."

"Hey Lou. It's okay. I'm sure you amazed them."

"I hope so." 

"I can't talk much. I need to go back soon. Wish me luck."

"Good luck Lou. Ring me as soon as you can okay?"


"Love you, bye!"

"Bye, love you too."

He hung up and I dropped my phone on the bed. He didn't sound confident at all. But I really do think he is good enough. But then again, I haven't seen many of the other acts. I don't know who he's up against. He really does deserve this though.


"Louis?" I said as I answered the call. I heard sniffling on the other side of the call. "Louis?"

"I didn't make it Em. I didn't get through." He started crying through the phone. 

"Oh my god Louis! I'm so sorry. I really thought you'd do it!"

"No I'm sorry. I've let you all down." He said.

"Don't be stupid. I'm still so proud of you! You are so amazing and you will get your dream one day! I know you will."

He didn't answer for a few seconds.

"They called us all up and told us they'd made changes, that they'd raised the age of the over 25's group to 28 and that instead of 5 people going through to judges houses 8 people were." I thought I could have a better chance. I thought I could do it. And then they called all the boys out. They started reading out the names. I can even remember the exact order: John Wilding, Nicolo Festa, Paije Richardson, Aidan Grimshaw, Marlon McKenzie, Carl Brown, Matt Cardle, and Tom Richards. I just couldn't believe it. I was so upset Em."

"Lou? What time shall I come meet you?" 

"Can you make your way over now?" He asked, holding back his tears.

"Of course. I'll see you in a bit. I still love you Lou."

"Thanks Em. And he hung up."

I chucked the phone on my bed, tears forming in my eyes. He wanted this so bad. I wanted it so bad for him. I couldn't believe it. I started packing my stuff up. And then went to say bye to Laura. I walked up to her room and told her the news.

"Ok, well call me sometime ok?" She told me.

"Of course. Thanks for being there for me and helping me contain myself these past few days." I told her. We hugged and I got into the elevator and caught a cab over to Wembley arena.


I was about half way there and my phone rang. It was Louis again. Why was he calling me?"

"Hello?" I answered confused.


"WHAT?!" I choked out! "But I thought you.."

"YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BELIEVE IT!" He screamed down the phone. I could hear yelling in the background of more young guys.

"We'll tell me then!" I yelled a huge grin on my face.

"I was just leaving, we all were, and some guy came and called me, Harry, Zayn, Liam and Niall back with four of the girls. We were all so confused! Like we had no idea what was going on. I was biting my nails and we were all so quiet! And then the guy was like, "The judges want to see you back on stage." So we all walked on stage and they were all there and then Nicole was like "You're just too talented to let go of." We were so so confused. All the spaces were gone. And then she told us we would be made into groups! And we were going through to judges houses!"

"WHAT! LOUIS THAT'S AMAZING! CAN'T BELIEVE IT! OH MY GOD LOUIS!" I started laughing down the phone. I had tears running down my face ruining my makeup. 


"I KNEW YOU'D DO IT LOU! I WASN'T WRONG!" I got hear in his voice he was crying.

"And the best bit is, the guys are great! Me and Harry are already pretty close!"

"I'm nearly there Lou, you can introduce me." 

"Ok, I'll speak to you in a bit. Bye! I love you!"

"Bye! I love you too!" I replied.

I could not wipe the grin off my face. I was so happy! He did it! My best friend did it!"
