Dressing Up or Dressing Down? (One Direction/Lou Teasdale)

Melody is just an ordinary girl, or so she hopes. Her dream is to become a stylist, but after a traumatic experience it was locked in her inner closet. What will happen when she moves to London to be mentored by the famous Lou Teasdale, her idol? What will become of her when she meets the five lads everyone wants to meet? No one knows, except Fate.


3. I See Dead People!

“Melody…” someone was calling me. “Melody…” I pulled my duvet over my head and snuggled into my pillow.

“Melody, we can do this the easy way or the hard way.” This person said. Wait, I know that voice. I sat up straight, my duvet still covering my head. I heard him chuckle from somewhere. I ripped the duvet off my face to find two green eyes so close to mine that my breath was caught in my throat.

“Good morning.” He whispered his breath fanning over my face. I closed my eyes and just let myself fall to the side expecting to hit the soft cloud again, but no. He caught me and brought me back to where I was. “Not so fast. You’re coming with us today.” Wait, what? I opened my eyes again to find him staring at mine.

“Get off of my cloud.” I said shoving him off the bed. He landed with a thud on the floor and looked at me in shock. I grinned and got back under the duvet and closed my eyes again.

“OH LOUIS! CODE 24!” he yelled. I heard running and screaming and then the door flew open.

“WHERE ARE THEY?! WHERE ARE MY BABIES?!” he yelled at Harry. He pointed to me. “WHERE ARE THE CARROTS?! GIVE THEM BACK!” Louis yelled as he jumped me and started shaking me back and forth.

“I don’t have any carrots!” I screamed.

“THAT’S WHAT THEY ALL SAY!” he said still shaking me.

“LOUIS! I DON’T HAVE ANY FUCKING CARROTS AND IF THIS KEEPS GOING ON I WON’T GO ANYWHERE WITH YOU GUYS!” I yelled at the top of my lungs. He froze and Liam and Niall came running into the room.

“Louis, let her go.” Liam said walking over to me and throwing Louis on top of Harry who was laughing on the ground.

“Louis! Get your fat arse of me!” he yelled.

“You Okay?” Liam asked me as he sat down on the bed. I nodded, but didn’t say anything. “Guys! You broke her!” he yelled at them. I got out of my bed and ran to the bathroom locking the door.

“Melody! I’m sorry!” I heard Harry yelling from outside the door. Ha! He thinks I’m crying and probably going to hurt myself. I had a pen and paper in my bathroom for some odd reason, but I was glad I did. They were getting the silent treatment for waking me up like that. I quickly scribbled a note down.

I’m sorry.

Perfect I thought as I pushed it under the door. While I heard shuffling and yelling I took a quick shower and pulled on some random clothes I found in the bathroom that I kept for emergencies like this. I even found some more zombie make up. Idea! Liam knows I’ll never hurt myself, but the rest didn’t. I quickly applied the make up on my wrist to make it look like cuts. I got a razor and applied some fake blood to it and to the floor. This is going to be funny. I took my phone out and positioned it to record everything and unlocked the door. I lied down in the fake blood and soon enough I heard banging on the door followed by yells. I snickered to myself knowing that the door was unlocked. I went into my trance like state and faked passing out. I heard the door swing open and I heard gasps, then footsteps coming towards me. I was being pulled into someone’s’ lap.

“Melody, why? Why did you do this? Come on stay with me. Some one call the damn ambulance!” I was in Harrys’ lap. I stirred and opened my eyes to see him staring at Liam who was standing in the door smiling. “What are you smiling about Liam? She could die at any moment!”

“Ha-Harry?” I stuttered. Opening my eyes just a little bit. He turned to me and I could see the tears streaming down his face. His eyes were a pale green and filled with sorrow. It was the same with everybody else except Liam who knew and strangely Niall.

“Melody! You’re alive! Stay with me now. Don’t go into the light.” He said stroking my hair. It felt nice, but it felt better to toy with them.

“But it’s so pretty Harry. I can’t resist it.” I said as I fixed my eyes past his head to the ceiling.

“No, don’t leave. Look at me, don’t leave me, not now.” He whispered. Okay, this was getting too weird for me. I burst out laughing followed by Liam. I stood up taking my phone and stopped recording receiving weird looks from the other four boys.

“Oh you guys are so easy to play!” I screamed as I laughed even harder.

“But… how? Your wrists?” Louis asked with tears close to spilling out of his eyes.

“Seriously? Have you learned nothing about me? I made Harry look like a zombie fairy princess, remember?” I stated as I turned around and washed the make up off showing them my unharmed flesh.

“And the whole looking of into the distance thing?” Zayn asked.

“The perks of the first course I took in costume make up involved a very in depth acting class.” I stated as I placed my hands on my hips. Harry was still sitting on his knees looking from me to the spot where I was not 5 minutes ago.

“Holy fuck! Not again!” he screamed. “Remember your words Melody, payback’s a bitch. You’ll never see ours coming.” He gestured to the 3 boys behind him giving me a devilish smirk.

“Shit…” I groaned. That earned a chuckle from him. I turned and walked out of the bathroom back to my room. I quickly made the bed and turned to my closet. “Supras, Supras, where are my Supras?” I said under my breath.

“Looking for these?” Irish accent, Niall. I spun around to find him holding up my favourite pair of shoes. Uh oh.

“Actually, yes.” I said.

“Here, catch.” He said tossing me my shoes. I caught and inspected them closely. “Don’t worry. I didn’t do anything to them. They’re nice shoes and pretty expensive. Oh and I saw the make up tube in the bathroom earlier, but don’t tell the others.” He chuckled. “Pretty good skills though.”

“Thanks, Niall. So where are we going today?” I asked as I slipped my shoes on.

“Uhm, I think we’re heading to the mall. Lou said something about getting your ‘school supplies’.” He said air-quoting it.

“Oh,” I picked up my necklace that I took of before my shower and the charm bracelet. We walked down the stairs and found everyone except Lou sitting on the couches on their phones or just staring out into nothing. Niall flopped down next to Liam and started what looked like a thumb war. These boys.

I went to the kitchen, placed the jewellery on the island, and grabbed a bowl of lucky charms. I stood there, eating and playing with the chain of the necklace when I felt a presence behind me. I turned to look over my shoulder, but nothing was there.

“Oh, no. Not this again.” I said fear lacing my words. One thing you should probably know about me is that I have a sixth sense. Yes, as in I see dead people. Okay I don’t see them, but I feel their presence. They’re never friendly with me. The whole kitchen seemed to go cold. I could see my breath in the air. Suddenly the bowl exploded next to me and the small shards cut into my arm that was nearest to it. I tried to run to the door but before I could reach it I was pinned to the wall. I couldn’t see what or who it was, but I know it was that presence I felt earlier. I was being lifted up the wall. I felt dizzy; my breathing was being cut of. I fell to the floor and I was out cold.
