1. X Factor

*Ellie's POV*


As I leaned up against the cold hard concrete wall, my insides tied itself in knots. I was only a few minutes away from auditioning for the X Factor. I was super nervous because I had just seen many people run off stage crying. All this time I wondered 'Is Simon really that harsh?!' Sure he might be, but I didn't care. I was going to try my best and succeed no matter what. Just as the person before me came off stage with a huge grin on his face, he slapped me on the shoulder. Hard.


"Good luck!" He shouted, then ran off.


"Thanks." I muttered then rolled back my shoulders.


 I was dressed in a pair of black leather leggings, a purple silk tank top, a cheetah print cardigan and mocha colored suede booties to match the cardigan. My sister did my hair in elegant curls that tumbled down and over my shoulders and I kept my makeup matte with the exception of winged black shimmer eyeliner. I looked ready. But did I feel ready? Not in the slightest.


"Ellie you can go onstage now." The stage manager told me. He handed me my personal metallic gold microphone.


"Thanks." I smiled warmly and ment it.


"Hello! What is your name love?" Simon asked me, once I had myself positioned front and center on the stage.


"Ellie. Ellie Goulding." I smiled proudly, trying to melt away my nervousness.


"Well Ellie, lets see what you've got." Simon cued the soundboard guy to start my music.


Once the beat was playing smoothly inside of my head, I started singing:


I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

I take a deep breath every time I pass your door
I know you're there but I can't see you anymore
And that's the reason you're in the dark
I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart
And I feel so helpless here
Watch my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

Now I'm dreaming, will ever find you now?
I walk in circles but I'll never figure out
What I mean to you, do I belong
I try to fight this but I know I'm not that strong
And I feel so helpless here
Watch my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

[Beat break]

I need your love

All the years
All the times
You were never been to blame
And now my eyes are open
And now my heart is closing
And all the tears
All the lies
All the waste
I've been trying to make it change
And now my eyes are open

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free

[Beat break]


When I was done singing, five boys sitting in the front row right behind the judges caught my eye. They all winked for some reason so I smiled back weakly at them. One had super curly brown hair and sparkling green eyes, one was super tan with a black quiff and nerd glasses, another one had a blond quiff and braces, the second to last one had light brown hair and was wearing suspenders whilst the last one was smiling and wearing a plaid shirt, his hair neat.


"Ellie. That was incredible!" Simons voice pulled me out from my trance. I saw Curly behind him snicker. I frowned.


"Really?" I said hopefully.


"Yes! Very truly in fact. Um, do you know who wrote that song?" Simon clasped his hands behind his neck and leaned back.


"Um. Me." I muttered, feeling slightly embarrassed and feeling colour rising to my cheeks.


"That was incredible! I personally have never heard so much emotion put into one song! Great job. Well done." One of the other judges said. But my eyes were fixed on Simons face because it was his thoughts that I cared about the most.


"Thanks!" I beamed. "I actually got the chance to produce it with Calvin Harris" I said, but mostly to Curly who was now smirking at me cutely. I couldn't help but swoon a little.


"Really? That's nice." Simon commented. The third judge agreed. 


"Well. Ellie?" The third judge said. "It's a yes for me."


"It's a yes for me as well." The second judge said. I could feel myself going weak at my knees. I couldn't believe this was actually happening!!!


"And........" The crowd went silent as they awaited Simons final verdict. ".......It's a yes for me! You're going to Vegas!" He joked, quoting the judges off of his show Americas Got Talent.


My ears started ringing and my voice sounded hollow and tinny as I thanked the judges and ran off stage right. Tears were streaming down my face. I quickly called my mom and sister and told them the good news. They freaked out and congratulated me. I could hear my dad in the background as well. I could see Curly again for like the fourth time of the night, out of the corners of my eyes.


"Thanks so much mom but, um, the stage manager wants to talk to me so I have to go." I lied, noticing Curly's friends were now following closely behind him.


"So. I'm Harry." Curly introduced me to himself.


"It's nice to finally meet you Curly." I joke-smirked.


"Thanks. And this is Louis, Zayn, Liam and Niall." He pointed out each of the boys. 


"Nice to meet you all." I smiled warmly at all of them. A few of them waved and or smiled in response.


"You too..." Harry trailed off for a moment, his eyes staring off into mine, capturing me like a photo.


I could've sworn he stole my heart right then and there but I'm not sure...
