Rebellious, Beautiful, and Insecure

Alex and Amber are sisters. They are twins actually, Alex being twenty minutes older. Amber is always going, going, going with boys. But Alex rarely even goes on dates - and for a reason. The two sisters get jobs working for One Direction and the boys are quick to fall for them. Will Alex let her guard down and fall for the boy? Or will her past keep her from ever finding love? Travel along these girls' journey as teenagers, getting caught in fame, mystery, and intensity.


27. Jittery Feelings

As the concert starts, I head out into the audience with a black jumper on. I sit in an empty seat and listen to the boys sing for the first two songs. "Alex? Oh my gosh! I didn't know you were a Directioner!" My old mate Kate, from school yells over the music.

"Something like that," I smile at her.

"What's with all the black?" She asks. I shrug. When the second song is over I give her a hug and then begin to head backstage again. She follows me out though, which I don't expect. "Where are you going?" She laughs. I show the security guards my pass and they open the door.

"I have to go backstage. Hope you enjoy the show!" I smile. Her jaw drops as I disappear backstage, grabbing Zayn's change of clothes just in time. 

"How's it going?" I ask Zayn, helping him open a water bottle. 

"It'd be better if you weren't upset with me," He says, yanking on a new pair of pants. 

"Don't let it affect you remember? And I'm not upset anymore," I tell him, kissing his cheek right before he runs back on stage. 

I stand with Amber backstage, watching the boys perform. We help with the outfit changes and then at the intermission, I go back to my dressing room to start to get ready. Someone knocks twice on my door and once I call come in, Zayn enters the room. He stands behind the clothing divider and starts to change, muttering about how he felt better after I kissed his cheek.

I took my turn changing behind the divider and while doing so I expressed to Zayn that I didn't want to be the couple that kissed five times a day, everyday. Zayn then proceeded to say, "So we are a couple?" and upon that I blushed and turned away, neither confirming nor denying it because even I wasn't sure. 

"You're beautiful," Zayn says, standing behind me in the mirror. 

"Tisk tisk, Mr. Malik. We are working," I tell him, putting on grey eye shadow.

"You and work," He sighs, but I see a secret smile.

"Yup. So get your butt back on stage," I laugh, pushing him out of my dressing room. 

I watch as he leaves the room and then I finish getting ready. By the time I lace up my Converse and head out to where the other girls are, the boys have gone through two more numbers. I grab Zayn's next outfit and a water bottle for him to chug down. When he comes back stage, I can't keep myself from staring at his chest while he changes his shirt. As his pants slide down I look away, even though I've already seen him in his boxer shorts. 

"No kiss on the cheek this time?" He asks while changing.

"Do you not remember what comes next on stage?" I question.

"I thought that doesn't count," He mutters.

"Now you're getting it," I smile as he runs back on. 

I watch one of their songs before going back to my dressing room and making sure I'm ready to go on, myself. I keep expecting Jeremy to be in there, menacing me with threats regarding Zayn. But he's not there, and so an eerie sense of calm envelops me. 

When there's a knock on the door a couple of minutes later, I begin to freak out, super paranoid now that I'm on my own and I'm aware that everyone is right next to the stage, so far away from me. "Are you ready?" Eleanor's voice calls in, without opening the door. I exhale, not even realizing that I was holding my breath.

"Yeah," I say, opening the door and following her to the back of the stage. We get there in time to watch the boys' number that happens right before the final one. I watch them and stand in awe, finally looking at the choreography and not the boys doing the choreography.

The number ends, and the familiar jittery feelings overwhelm my stomach. "You got it," Amber puts her hand on my shoulder. I walk onto the stage in my spot and the music starts - my cue is signaled. 

I head out and start dancing with the choreography. At the end, I feel the same tingle of breathlessness and happy anxiety that I felt the night before when I was wrapped in Zayn's arms and the music ends. Like last night, the whole crowd screams for us to kiss. Zayn leans down to kiss me and I wrap my arms around his neck, excited with the moment. 

When it's over I pull back and while smiling and waving I head off stage so that the boys can do their encore. I hug Amber on my way off and take a water bottle from the side. "Great job Alex!" Simon congratulates me. 

"Thank you very much," I reach out to shake his hand, but he pulls me in for a hug. 

"You guys are officially part of the 1D family," He says smiling and pulling back.

"Thank you," Amber says, receiving a hug from him as well. We wait together for the boys to get off of the stage. I'm talking with Eleanor when they do and suddenly I'm being lifted.
