20. Concert

The couple of numbers are great, and I bite my lip in nervousness. Eleanor, Danielle, Amber, Hannah (Simon's friend) and I are helping the boys change in between. I grab Zayn's next outfit and wait for him to run back. 

"You're doing great!" I exclaim.

"Oh yeah? Is that you saying it or the job?" He snaps as he pulls off his shirt. I hand him the next one. 

"Me, you jackass," I growl, giving him the new pants as he strips to his boxer shorts. 

"Well I wouldn't know huh? Because it's business hours," He says. 

"You're going to go there?" I ask. He grabs the water bottle out of my hand and squirts it into his mouth before heading back out. You've got to be shitting me. 

I go out into the audience to watch the boys from there and give the light guys some information. I have a black hoodie on so no one sees my outfit. I'm on the floor, in the back, in front of the door. And yet, as the boys sing Little Things, Zayn finds my face. I immediately look away and head back stage again, grabbing his next outfit. 

They sing a couple more songs and then it's intermission for fifteen minutes. I hand Zayn the next outfit and begin to walk away. "Alex," He calls after me. I keep walking towards the green room. "Alex!" He yells. 

"Yes Zayn?" I ask seeing Simon off to the side. 

Zayn notices too and takes a deep breath. "I need your help in my dressing room for a moment," He says, controlling his voice. I nod and follow him towards the dressing room, noticing that Simon is staring after us. 

"What is it that you want Zayn? To snap at me again? To show me that you're just some stuck up pop boy band member?" I ask him as he shuts the door behind us. 

"Alex, I am so sorry for snapping at you. I didn't mean it. I was just really upset, thinking about what Jeremy has done to you and then upset that you're hurt and ended up hurting you even more. I'm sorry Alex. It won't happen again I promise, just please, please forgive me," He begs, literally getting on his knees. 

"You realize that I've known you for a week?" I ask, crossing my arms over my chest.

"Alex I'm really sorry," He repeats, taking my hands. I sigh.

"Get up," I groan. He stands up. I pull him in for a giant hug and squeeze him tight, as he locks his arms around my waist and pulls me up against him. "For future reference, don't let what happens between us affect you on stage alright?" I question. I feel him nod before he rests his chin on my head. "And how did you see me? When you were singing Little Things," I ask.

"I know how to find your face, okay? I was looking for you and then suddenly you were there," He shrugs. 

I take a deep breath in of his scent before pulling away. "Change so that you can get back out there," I reply.

"Back to work?" He sighs.

"In case you haven't noticed, we're in the middle of a show," I laugh, pushing him towards the giant curtain that you can change behind. 

"Okay fine. But I'm taking you out to dinner," He argues.

"One - no. And two, it's like ten thirty at night," I reply beginning to head for the door. 

"Please Alex. It doesn't have to be tonight," He says. I shake my head. "One date," He presses.

I look down at my watch and there's eight minutes until they go back on. "Get changed. I'll think about it," I say leaving the room. 

"What happened?" Amber asks me, taking a giant sip of water. 

"He apologized for snapping at me and literally begged me to forgive him. And then asked if he could take me on a date," I reply. She almost spits out the water. 

She swallows it quickly and looks at me. "What did you say?" She questions.

"I said I'd think about it," I respond, both of us watching as Zayn comes out of his dressing room and smiling at everyone. 

"That's creepy," Amber giggles as he looks at me and his smile grows wider and more genuine. 

The boys go back on stage and continue the performance. Simon walks up to me. "Are you all set to go on?" He asks. I nod. "I want both you and Amber to stay for the meet and greet if that's okay. I'll pay you both overtime. People are going to recognize you as the girl who danced with Zayn and want to meet you as well," He says.

"Umm...okay, sure." I reply, not wanting to say no to my boss. 

"Great." He smiles. I head back to my dressing room and touch up my makeup. When I come back I help Zayn change into his last outfit. I have a couple of songs left before the number where I go on.
