Miss Mackenzie

Jamie-Leigh Mackenzie is nothing special. Ok, her distant cousin is Ed Sheeran and they're quite close but... Nothing too special.


3. Chapter 3

I opened the door and saw Louis standing there.

"Hey Lou," I sighed, letting him in.

"Sorry about the interview, I should have asked you," Louis looked genuinely upset.

"No Lou, don't worry, it's just I managed to keep my famous side a secret and now the world knows," I slumped down on the sofa.

"Let me make it up to you," Lou smiled.


"Let me take you to lunch before the interview."

"Louis you don't need to," I began.

He put a finger on my lips and I fell silent.

"I want to," He reached into his bag and pulled out a movie, The Ugly Truth.

" I love this film!" I smiled, going and grabbing a tub of ice cream and a spoon.

"Hey, can I have some?" Lou called.

I grabbed another spoon and sat next to him on the sofa, curling my feet under me.

"What can I call you?"

"Huh?" I was confused by his question.

"Well, you name is kinda long...."

"You can call me Jamie, but only you," I smiled and passed him the second spoon.

"Why does Ed call you Leigh?"

"Well, I fractured his wrist and in return I told him he could call me Leigh," Lou laughed at my story.


The movie took up most of the morning and by 1pm we were a bit restless.

"Hey, why don't we go out for lunch?" I asked

"I thought that was the day before the interview?"

"I'll pay for mine, don't think I'm paying for you though," I laughed and ran to get changed.

Since it was summer I put on a white shirt and a red skirt, along with my trusty converses. We walked out the door and up the street to MacDonalds. I clung on to Louis the whole way, trying to hide my face from the cameras.

We finally got our lunch and sat down. I took my phone out and Louis looked over my shoulder.

"Oh shit," I whispered.

There was a photo of me and Louis with the caption,

'Louis Tomlinson got a new girl? She looks like Ed Sheeran's little cousin...'

"No, please no, this can't happen to me," I got up and ran out the door, pushing past fans. I glanced back and Louis was shoving fans out of the way, trying to catch up with me.

I turned down a deserted alley and collapsed on a bench. The alley was dark and intimidating, but I tried not to be scared.

"Jamie?" He came and sat next to me.

I turned my head away as a single tear rolled down my cheek. He turned my head to face him and gently brushed it away. I closed my eyes and gently kissed him, before I felt him kiss me back. I pulled back.

"I'm sorry, I shouldn't have done that... What have I done? What will Ed say? Oh Lou..." I got up and then sat back down.

He took my hand and squeezed it reassuringly.

"I'll explain it to him, cos I think they got that too," He pointed to the end of the alley where a camera was pointing round the edge.

I took out my phone and we checked again.

'Ed Sheeran's cousin in the alley with One Direction's Louis'

That was just the title. We scrolled down to the article.

'Louis Tomlinson was spotted kissing Ed Sheeran's cousin Jamie-Leigh Mackenzie in a dark alleyway this afternoon. Many fans are angry and there are many rumours around..'

We didn't bother to read the rest.

Louis grabbed my hand and dragged me out to face the crowd. We kept our heads down but fans were shouting things like 'You don't deserve her' and 'You could do so much better'.

"You are so much better than them, you're Ed's little cousin," Lou tried to make me smile.


When we reached my flat I went into my room and closed the door. Lou followed me and opened it gently. I was lying on the bed holding my knees, crying.

"What's wrong Jamie?" Lou asked softly, rubbing my back. I shifted my head onto his knee, but he lifted me up so I was sitting on his lap. He hugged me close and rocked gently.

"They don't know how special you are, They don't know what you've done to my heart, They can say anything they want cos they don't know about us," He sung in my ear.

"You're to good for me," I whispered.

"You could get any guy you want," He whispered back

I kissed him gently, and I could taste my salty tears on my lips. Maybe everything would be ok...
