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.


6. Chapter 6

The time was 1:05pm. We had arrived in Manchester and been sat in the waiting rooms for 2 hours now. 

"115204!" A women called from the doorway through a megaphone.

I froze and felt Lou's hand tense in mine. I turned to look at him, he was staring straight ahead.

"Lou, come on." Jay said putting her hand on his shoulder. She raised her hand over at the women with the megaphone letting her know we were coming. Lou's head snapped round at Jay breaking him from his daze. 

"Yeah sure." He replied trying to not make the knit in his throat seem obvious, but I noticed it. We both stood up, and he grabbed my hand, tight. I squeezed his back and stood close to him so our arms were pressed together. Lou was wearing his navy jeans, with a blue shirt and black tie and a grey cardigan over the top.  

"Come on, lets go." I said to him and nodded at Jay.

"Daisy, Georgia, hold my hands please." Jay said reaching for the twins. "Fizzy, Lotte, stay together and walk in front of me so I can see you. We better go Sweetie." She said looking at Louis.
Louis didn't reply but Jay turned around pushing the older two girls forward towards the member of staff who had called out Louis' number. Louis and I followed keeping a short distance from the others. He never let go of my hand the whole walk, there, and none of us sad a word. It wasn't far to get backstage, but it did seem at least a mile walk. 

"Okay Louis, you ready mate?" A crew member asked as we all stood backstage.

"As ready as I'll ever be." He replied shrugging his shoulders and turning to give one last smile at the kids.

"Good luck sweetheart!" Jay said pulling him into a tight hug, tears running down her face. "I'm so proud of you." She said pulling away and using him at arms length.

"Thanks mum." He said rubbing her hand. 

He turned to face me, and gave me that gorgeous smile of his, "You'll smash it Lou, I know it. But good luck anyway." I said winking at him. 

"I love you Em. Thank you so much for all you've done."he said, looking at the floor.

"I love you too Lou." I replied gently kissing him on the cheek.

And then he was gone, up those few stairs that led to the stage.

"Oh god." Jay said moving to stand next to me.

"Is ok, he'll do it." I told her, grabbing her hand.

"I know." She said squeezing my softer hand.

We all stood watching the screen in front of us, it was a view from the cameras so we could see how Louis' audition was going. He walked on to the stage and had the quick conversation with the judges, telling them his name and where he was frame etc. then he started singing. Once he finished the crowd all gave him a massive applause. Simon Cowell first asked Louis Walsh, yes or no? "It's a yes from me." He said.

Simon then asked Nicole, she said yes too. Louis was beaming. And the just to put the cherry on the cake, Simon went and gave him another yes. Louis was so happy, he walked off the stage and jumped down the stairs. We all ran over to him attacking him with hugs. Tears ran down my cheek and I was so proud of my best friend, who knows what was next for him!
