26. Alex's Singing

"Wait a minute," Zayn says, staring in the mirror and criticizing the outfit I gave him. Everyone stops what they're doing to listen. "We never finished our conversation about singing," He looks at me.

"Yes we did," I reply.

"What are you talking about?" Harry asks. All of the boys look confused. 

"Nothing," I say.

"Alex says she doesn't sing but I know that she does," Zayn responds.

"Maybe she's a really bad singer and doesn't want to embarrass herself," Louis suggests. Eleanor hits him in the chest. 

"Yea I don't want to embarress myself," I say.

Amber replies, "Yeah okay Alex."

"We're done talking about this guys. End of conversation," I respond. I usher them out after changing Zayn's outfit slightly. 

"Do I get a good luck kiss?" Zayn asks me.

"If you consider more water on your head a good luck kiss then yes," I reply, being coy.

"A hug at least?" He whines as the other boys go sit in front of the camera. I laugh and give him a quick hug before I literally push him towards the camera. 

The girls and I watch the interview from the side, on call for any wardrobe malfunctions. I kind of zone out, until I hear the reporter asking about the girl who was dancing with Zayn at the concert last night.

"Who is this girl?" The hostess asks the boys, a glint in her eyes. 

"I'd love to hear your theories," Zayn replies carefully. 

"Well is she just a dancer or is there something more?" The lady questions.

"I guess you will have to wait to find out," Harry responds flirtatiously.

The rest of the interview is pretty dull, but I listen in just in case of any more mentions of me, Eleanor, or even Danielle. There is talk about the concert tonight and the boys neither confirm nor deny that I am dancing tonight. I take a deep breath, realizing that I hadn't thought of that. 

The interview ends and so we take the boys to the arena. Simon isn't even there yet, but the stage is all set up and people are still cleaning the seats. Niall runs up and grabs a headset, saying something quickly into it. I look at him in confusion, as well as the other boys. 

Once again, my music comes over the speakers, the music filling the entire arena. Everyone listens as I head up to tell the music guys to turn it off please. Amber looks at me, a sparkle in her eyes, as the boys close their eyes to enjoy the song. I have it turned off. 

"What is with you guys and that song?" I question them. 

"It's really good. Like REALLY good," Liam says.

"Yea. Like, amazingly good." Harry seconds. 

"Don't you like it? You have a dance to it," Zayn points out.

"Yup. She has a dance to it. It's all hers," Amber says and I realize that she's telling them the song is mine without making it obvious. None of the boys notice. I send her a glare. 

"Well we've seen her dance, now let's see her sing," Zayn laughs. All of the boys look at me expectantly.

"I've said no. And you need to respect that." I snap in seriousness, storming backstage. 

Zayn tries to come over to me and talk but I ignore him, and then Simon gets there which makes it easier to ignore him. Amber and I sit in the front row as Tori takes over the rehearsal process. Amber and I begin to look into the recent attempt to break into the firewall that we created. 

The person who tried to break in, triggered the virus that shuts down their computer, however after some research, we find out that the computer used was a public computer. As I wipe out the public computer's hard drive, Amber adds another layer notifications to the firewall. Anyone who tries to get through the first set of codes for the firewall, will have their computer freeze for a minute while a notification is sent to Amber, Simon, and I. At that point their computer will be unfrozen and they will receive a message that states employees have been notified, but will not prevent the person from continuing to break in to the firewall. 

Finally satisfied with our work, we close our laptops and watch the boys for a while. "Alex are you set to go on tonight?" Simon asks me. 

"I think I'm fine. Would you like me to run through it?" I question.

"If you wouldn't mind," He replies. I take off my heels and slide on my Jordans, since they are the only other shoes I have with me right now.

I head up the steps and run through the dance with the boys, avoiding Zayn's face during the complicated part and at the end not really looking at him. As soon as the music ends I let go of Zayn and take two steps away, still upset about earlier. 

"Lad, are you going to get that part right during the show?" Simon asks worriedly. 

"Yeah, he'll have it right," I answer for Zayn. 

"Okay. Then I think we are all set. Dinner break and then start getting ready everybody!" Simon exclaims. I glance at Zayn quickly but then descend the stage stairs and put my heels back on. 

"Sister dear, I need to talk to you," Amber says.

I follow her towards the dressing rooms backstage. "Why are you getting so upset that they like your music?" She whisper asks.

"I don't want them to know," I shrug. "And singing in front of people isn't really my thing," I reply.

"Dude, Simon offered you a record deal." She says.

"I have one song," I retort.

"No. You have one finished song. And you have like four songs that only are missing like two lines. And the beginning of two MORE songs,"

"Shhh," I tell her. 

"Fine. But you can't hide it forever. And cut Zayn some slack. He just wants to hear you sing," She says gently.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever," I reply. She sticks her tongue out at me and we head out to eat.
