Listening To The Silent Lyrics

What happens when your ordinary life turns into a drama? What happens when your dreams become true and you meet the love of your life? Well this is it for 16 year-old Lucy Mai. But this is no fairy tale. This is real life.


20. Important meeting

When I woke up, I was in a car going somewhere. My head was in someone’s lap and my hair was being gently stroked by large hands. I was curled into a ball. I looked around and saw Mya and the rest of the boys doing their own things. I lift my body around so that I’m just sitting. I look at Harry and he smiles at me. I gave him a small smile back before yawning. “Where are we going?” I say once I’m done.

Mya digs a mobile out her pocket, does some things to it and then hands it over to me. Up on the screen was a message from Simon Cowell (whom I still haven’t met) saying that there is a meeting that we all MUST attend. “Oh okay.” I pass her phone back and hold Harry’s hand.

The car ride was short and boring, it took us only 10 minutes to get to some fancy office building. We were taken to the top floor. However, I hated lifts so much. I couldn’t go in one. Therefore Harry and I took a detour on the stairs. It was so tiring. I wasn’t full of energy like Harry so he had to give me a piggy back half way through.

Finally, we got to the top floor. We were both panting and red faced. We laughed at the sight of each other and he put me down so we could walk together to everybody else. They weren’t outside the door waiting so we took the clue to go in and saw everybody sat around a large wooden table. There was tension in the air as we awkwardly sat down next to each other, Mya on the other side of me.

On the end of the large table was a black leather chair where the one and only Simon Cowell sat. He began talking, and I couldn’t hear a thing of it so I bet it didn’t include me. I gave a glance to Mya who looked like she was listening intently. I sighed and rolled my head back. Harry gave me a saddening stare.

I was busy planning Louis and Eleanor’s wedding in my head that I didn’t notice everybody staring at me until I was poked in the ribs.  “You okay?” Mya signed. I nodded.

“Sorry.” I mumbled.

Simon says that this bit involves you, so I have to translate.” This must be serious if this does involve me then. I nodded again and she started translating. From everybody’s expressions, it wasn’t what they were expecting either.

You’re going to get you hearing fixed in a few weeks. The doctors are going to put a hearing aid in your ear and are going to connect it up to your ears. He wants to know if that’s ok.” I sat there for god knows how long with my mouth wide open. I look to Harry for help. He was as shocked as me.

Tears sprung in my eyes before I nodded, giving him permission to get my hearing back. “Shit, Lucy. He wants to know how your hearing was lost! How do I tell him? Or do you want to explain?” Mya looked worried and I was terrified. I didn’t want to tell him what happened. I haven’t even told Harry!

Just say that there was an incident a few years back that lost my hearing please?” I signed back to Mya. She nodded and hopefully repeated those words.

She turned back around to me. “apparently the doctors need a specific judgment on what happened so they know what they can do. I’m sorry. What should I say?” Mya looked depressed.

I’ll tell him.” I signed to her then turned to face the man who held my career in his hands. “When I was 10, this robbery happened at a shop. This man let off a stun grenade… it was loud and my ears were sensitive. I lost my hearing then.” And my family. I tried not to cry at the memory. I let a few tears slip but stopped when Harry embraced me. He rocked me back and forth so I wouldn’t cry anymore. And it worked.

Simon says the doctors will fix everything up in a week or so. Two weeks max.” Mya said with a smile. I held a huge grin on my face and we happy danced together….or fangirled kinda. That’s what it looked like.

Oh well. I couldn’t be any happier.
