Best Friends or Lovers?

Bayleigh Watson is best friends with a boy named Liam Payne. Her best friend was the most talented singer she knew. So, she convinced him to try out for the X Factor. Little did she know that this experience would change him for the rest of his life. But in this process would this pull Bayleigh and Liam closer together or farther apart?


4. The Audition

After we got done talking to my mom, Liam and I went up to my room to talk.

“Well that went well.” Liam said flopping down on my bed as I shut the door. It was crazy how much my mother trusted me with him really. I always shut the door and my mother would never come in and say anything. I wonder if that would change now that Liam and I are dating.

“I’m not really surprised. Why don’t you come lay down?” He asked me.

I didn’t respond, I just flopped down next to him and wrapped my arms around him as he wrapped his arms around me. He kissed me on the forehead and played with my hair. We laid like that for a while without talking. But then Liam finally said something.

“I can’t believe I am trying out again tomorrow.”

“You’re going to do great. What are you going to sing?” I asked him.

“It’s a surprise.” He responded.

Liam went home later that night after he ate dinner with my family. He eats dinner with my family a lot. But this is the first time he had ever done it as my boyfriend. My dad and my brother acted as if they didn’t like the idea of Liam and I. But really, they should have seen it coming according to my mother. We were destined to be together my mother said.

I went to bed that night with the biggest smile on my face. I never realized that I thought about Liam that way. We had always been best friends and I never wanted to jeopardize our friendship. But I know what you’re thinking, why I do it now. Well, honestly I don’t really know why it happened now. All I know is that I am really happy it did happen.

The next morning I woke up to a small child in my face. My little sister, Harper was smiling down at me while sitting on my stomach.

“Good morning Harper.” I said to her.

“Morning.” She replied.

Harper was 7 years old. She looked like my mother, while me and my brother look our father. Harper has ash blonde hair that is ridiculously curly. Her eyes are a brilliant green that I have never seen anywhere else. But my brother and I both have jet black hair and ice blue eyes. Will and I couldn’t look more different from our sister.

“What do you want Harper?” I asked her.

“Mom told me to come and get you up. You need to get ready for Liam’s audition.” She told me.

“What time is it?”

“Mom said it was 9:45.”

“Shit!” I yelled.

I threw my sister and my blankets off of me and ran into my bathroom and slammed the door. I had an hour until Liam and his parents were going to be here to pick me up. I turned on the shower until it was scalding hot. I flipped on the music and heard Mary’s Song (Oh My My) by Taylor Swift come on. I stepped into the shower and thought how perfectly that song fit us. I wanted this song to be ours forever. I got through washing my hair with my favorite coconut shampoo and conditioner. I stepped out of the shower and wrapped my body in a towel and also my hair.

I stepped out of the bathroom and walked over to my insanely huge closet. I had to find something great to wear. I know its Liam’s audition but I still wanted to look amazing for him. I finally picked out the perfect thing. I went to go do my makeup and hair. By the time everything I looked like this: Just then I heard the doorbell ring and I ran done the stairs as fast as I could in my 6 in heels. I swung open the door and saw Liam standing there. He wrapped his arms around me into warm embrace.

“You look beautiful.” He whispered into my ear. He gave me a small kiss on the lips because he knew his parents were watching from the car.

“Are you ready?” I asked Liam.

“As ready as I’ll ever be.” He responded with hesitation.

“You’re going to do great.” I told him and kissed him on the cheek.

Just then my mom walked into the hallway and came up to Liam to give him a hug.

“You’re going to do great, kiddo.” My mom said to him.

“Thanks, Holly.”

Liam and I walked to the car and he opened the door for me. It took about 30 minutes to get to where we were going. Then it took an hour to get Liam signed in because of how many people were there. Liam couldn’t sit still while he was waiting for his audition, so he went and walked around to talk to some of the other lads that were trying. I heard him talking behind me to a guy named Louis. Soon I saw Liam and who I presume to be Louis standing in front of me.

“Hey Bayleigh this Louis Tomlinson. Louis this is my girlfriend Bayleigh.” Liam said introducing us.

“Hi. Nice to meet you.” I said shaking Louis hand.

“Louis here is trying out in the same group as I am.” Liam added.

Just then they called for the group that Liam and Louis are in to get ready to audition. All of the people that were in the same group went over to the door to go in. Liam grabbed my hand so hard that I thought he was going to break it.

“Li, you have got to calm down. You’re going to break my hand.” I squeaked at him through the pain.

“Oh, sorry love.” He said in a shaky tone.

“Look at me Liam,” I grabbed his face with my hands so that he would look into my eyes. “I wouldn’t have told you to do this if I didn’t think you were ready. They are going to love you. You’re going to get through to the next round. I believe in you.”

Liam just gave me a small smile and kissed me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and just hugged him. I could still feel him shaking so I hugged him a little tighter.

“You have 10 seconds until you go on.” One of the stage guys came to tell Liam.

“You are going to do great.” I said one last time.

“Good luck sweetheart.” Liam’s parents said in unison. We all did one last group hug and then Liam went to where he was told.

Honestly I am so nervous. This is all Liam ever wanted. If Liam didn’t make it through there might be a beat down with the judges.

On the side of the stage where Liam’s parents and I were standing there was a little TV where we could see everything happening. I saw Liam walk out on stage and I saw Simon put his hand over his face in shock.

“How are you Liam?” Simon asked as he finally got his composure.

“I am doing well. And you Simon?” Liam said back.

“Just great. It’s been two years right?” Simon smiled.

“Yeah it has been.” Liam started shaking a little bit. I remember that time so vividly. He wouldn’t talk to anyone for a while. He was so upset and I couldn’t do anything to make him feel better and it made me so upset.

“So what are you going to sing today?” Simon asked him.

“I am going to sing Cry Me a River.” Liam told the judges. They all seemed a little shocked.

As he started singing I saw little smiles out of all the judges except Simon. I couldn’t really tell what he was thinking. But then as Liam got through the song and got more comfortable on the stage and hit amazing notes, Simon finally started perking up. He seemed presently surprised.

Then finally on the last note everyone started cheering loudly and clapping. Liam was absolutely brilliant. But what came next made my jaw drop. Simon Cowell gave Liam a standing ovation and he had a big smile on his face. I had a tear come out and I thought to myself, I am so proud of my boy.

The judges did all of there talking and agreed that he was a brilliant singer. Then it came down to the voting. It was one yes after another. Then it finally came to Simon.

“Based on talent, you were absolutely brilliant. So I am going to give a big fat all mighty yes!” Simon said to Liam.

All of us backstage were screaming and clapping. I am so happy for my boy. I saw Liam on stage shaking with happiness.

“Thank you so much.” Liam said as he walked off stage.

He finally got to us and I literally through my arms around him and hugged him so tight.

“I knew you could do it.” I whispered in his ear.

We did all of the hugging and happiness. It was finally time to leave. I was so happy for Liam. His life would change forever. But to what extent, who knows.
