Chasing My Dream (1D)

After Alyssa learns what she wants to do with the rest of her life, she is being turned in the other direction by family. Will she break free and finally be her own person, chasing her dreams and meeting some people along the way? And maybe even find love?


3. Auditions

     Today is the day. I woke up at the sounds of ear piercing screams caused by the alarm clock. I can't do this. I'm am so scared right now. I can't sing that song, what if I mess up? I couldn't decide on what else to sing so I decided to turn on Pandora as I shower.


      Little Mix? no. Demi Lovato? no. Jason Mraz? YES!! Jason Mraz, I'm Yours. Perfect! That is a perfect song!!!!!! I softly start out and slowly and work into the song when it sadly goes off. I wash off and wrap a white, fluffy towel around me and wrap my hair in one.


      Now what should I wear? I think greenish-blue shorts, and a grey, thick strap flowy tank top with a lace heart in the middle and a lace back. To finish off, I put on black flip-flops, and necklace that says 'love' and earrings. I put on eyeliner, foundation, mascara, and lip gloss. You know, all that girl shit that you get hated on if you don't wear it.


      Anyways, I think it should be a good idea to sing the song without the lyrics. Finally finding it on youtube I sing. But this part of the song sticks out the most to me:

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror

And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer

But my breath fogged up the glass

 So I drew a new face and I lau-au-aughed

I guess what I been saying is there ain't no better reason

To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons

It's what we aim to do

Our name is our virtue

So I won't hesitate no more

It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me

Open up your plans and damn you're free

Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours


     Alright stomach, time for you to shut up. 'well feed it and it will shut up' I say in a different voice then laugh at myself. I lock the door to the room and then go to eat at the free breakfast. Hey, it's free! I can't help but think of how embarrassing it would be if America, as well as the judges, hated me. I need to quit thinking like that! I look down and notice my empty plate so I walk to my car. I get to the auditions and it is packed. I grab my paper and go to the sign ups. They give me my number and the line slowly gets me inside. I see many people cry, cussing, and throwing things as I figure they didn't make it. But I see a few coming out crying happy tears with a paper. I hope that will be me.

      Alright, Alyssa, they are about ready for you , they will tell you when to go on. After about fifteen minutes a girl comes back out and I get handed a mic as a girl walks me to the edge of the stage. "Good luck" she smiles. "Thanks" I smile back and nervously make my way to the stage. "Hello" Simon says. "Hi" I smile nervously. "Tell us about yourself" Demi says. I Quickly glance at Simon, Demi, Kelly, and Paulina. "My name is Alyssa, I'm eighteen. I worked full time at a party store, and nobody is here with me today!" I say trying to push the nervousness out of my body. "Does anyone know you're here?" Kelly asked. "No, I sort of move out, and came here alone. All the way from West Virginia." "That's pretty far, lets hope you have a good voice to keep you from going back." Paulina says and smiles. The music starts and I sing to my full potential. After a few words, people are standing up cheering. I finally feel comfortable and gain more confidence when three out of four judges stand up and clap. Then, Simon Laughs and stands up clapping with a huge grin on his face. When everyone calms down he says, "This girl is mine, I can already tell" he says. I smile widely surprised I just did that and that the Simon Cowell said that about me. "No, she's mine, she needs someone that has a voice like hers to help her!" Demi shouts. "Don't listen to her, I can make you big!" He says. "Okay! this is just auditions, we need to give her our feed back." Kelly says laughing. "You were amazing, yes" Paulina says. "Outstanding voice, you have a yes for me." Kelly says. Okay, Alyssa, stay calm. "Yes, I absolutely love your voice, I loved your whole look as well as performance, yes, yes, yes!" Demi says. "You're just trying to suck up! I really like your voice and I feel like you could use a little more work, and you could do anything with your voice, yes" I scream and jump "Thank you guys so much, this means everything!" Then, I see Demi come up on the stage "Come here" she says and pulls me into a hug. "You are going to be huge, I don't have a doubt about that. I really am going to have fun working with you. Congrats" She says laughing. "Commercial after this!" a stage manager yells. "Come on! I'll be the person you can celebrate with!" she says and walks off the stage with me. I was crying of happiness and we walk off the stage and they hand me a paper. "She made it!" Demi yells and hugs me again. "Thank you so much, you are such a role model to me. and thanks for doing this for me" I say laughing. "You're welcome, I need to get back, bye!" She says running back. A guy asks, "How do you feel?" "I am in complete shocked they actually liked me, this is so crazy" I say before I get pushed out to the waiting room and having to fill out a paper.


I cannot believe this. I'm an official participant of The 3rd year of The X Factor. This is crazy.
