9. HANNAH?!

I headed off to period 5, Drama. Little did i know, Hannah had been busy doing me a little 'favor'. 
'Can everyone who is signed up for the School Musical please head to the theater room!' An announcement said over the speaker. A hand shot out and dragged me off to the theater room. 
'what?!' I said pulling free of the grip, realizing it was Hannah.
'I signed you up. you are coming with me.' she said continuing to drag me by my shirt.
'Hannah?!'
'don't worry i'm signed up too. We're in this together.' she grinned.
we hurried.. well Hannah hurried, i was dragged, to the theater room. We took our seats near the back. Auditions had started and the first person was on stage reading the lines given to them. The play this year was in fact none other then the famous Grease. Yay! But nay... i didn't want to have to sing. or read lines. or stand in front of these people. or move. okay you get the picture. i frowned as the girl on stage started singing. She was good...ish? 
A few more people auditioned, then is was Hannahs turn. She got up and got right into it, belting the lyrics of You're the One That I Want. My mouth literally dropped open. She was incredible! She finished her solo and read some lines, then headed back down to her seat.
'Niall Horan your now up.' The theater production manager, Mrs Tessa, said.
I looked up at the blond boy who was approaching the stage. He was cute.
'How'd i do?' Hannah whispered as she sat down beside me.
'Incredible! how come i never knew you could sing like that?!' i asked. She just shrugged.
Niall started talking then, acting out his scene, and i suddenly turned to watch. He had the sexiest Irish accent. His voice was one that made me want to listen. Really listen. Then he started to sing Sandy. My mouth, once again, dropped. People were surprising me all day today! What was going on?! Niall was beyond amazing. 
'Wow. He's good!' Hannah whispered.
I couldn't reply, only listen.
'Thankyou.' He said once he had finished, flashing the audience a huge smile. I started clapping, along with everyone else.
'Caitlyn Staceys you're up!' My heart froze.
'Go on Caitlyn, you can do it. Just pretend its me your singing to and no one else.'
I didn't budge. Hannah punched my arm. 
'Ouch!?!' 
'Then get up there or ill punch you again but harder.'
'God alright alright im going!' I said hoping up and heading for the stage. 
The stage hand passed me my script on the way up. I stood in front of the crowd. 
'Breath.' i whispered. i looked at Hannah. She gave me two thumbs up. Then i started reading my lines, putting in every single ounce of effort i had in making it the best act ive ever done. I looked up to see Mr Karissa smiling at me. Phew i did it. I went to talk off then remembered i had to sing. i had to sing. i had to si... oh forget it you understand my fright. I looked down to see the lyrics they had given to me were  Hopelessly Devoted to You. I knew this song. I sung it all the time at home, alone, by myself, without an audience, for my own entertainment. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, re-opened them and started singing. I kept my eyes focused on Hannah. She was grinning from ear to ear. The nerves i felt started to disappear as i looked around realizing that people were smiling or looking shocked. Maybe i wasnt bad? Maybe i was an alright singer. My eyes rested on Niall, i dont know why. And he was grinning. I belted out the last few lyrics of the song then finished and said thankyou, before heading for my seat. People started clapping and cheering, the biggest cheer coming from Hannah. I smiled and took a seat. Mr Karissa took to the stage. 
'Alright guys, thankyou for coming. We will put up the cast list tomorrow morning so go check it out! Everyone will get a roll so dont worry.' He smiled. The bell went indicating it was last period of the day. I got up to leave only to be stopped by someone calling my name. Someone with an irish accent. 
'Caitlyn,' he called. I stopped turning to face him. he smiled, 'your voice is unbelieveable!' he said.
'You can talk! you were incredible!' I replied beaming, 'but thankyou!' i added quickly.
'No problem, and thankyou.' he said smiling. 'i gotta go, i have class, but ill see you around!' he said.
'Yeah see you around.' i smiled. he waved and hurried off.
'ooooooo caitieeeee!' Hannah winked.
'Shut up you.' i said nudging her, 'lets go.'
