Well, later on Harry's being formed in a group. They had to perform together. Not too bad. She slowly started falling for one of the members. Louis Tomlinson. Basically, the only person who was able to make her smile, UNTIL the jealousness of TWO other guys began changing the story ...


4. Ch.4

"Lauren! Wake up. Your mom's gonna kill you," someone yelled as I slowly started waking up. My eyes immediately opened up widely realizing that I slept here. My head was in pain as hell. I held on to it as I stood up. I glanced around to find everyone dead drunk on the floor. Empty bottles of alcohol were everywhere. It can't get any worse.

"Lauren. Fast!" I turned around to see Christina yelling worriedly. I nodded and ran out of the house as fast as possible. As I was running, I realized that I left my shoes, but now I have something really bad to worry about.

I reached the house and slowly opened the door to make sure that my mom is asleep. I wasn't lucky this time though. She was making breakfast and as she turned around to place a pancake in a plate she saw me and immediately gave me a death glare. A knot formed in my stomach as I knew what was next.

"Come here you little slut!" she yelled and ran up to me. I hid my face as she hit me with the hot spatula which created burns all over my body. Nothing hurts more than this. I cried loudly. "Where did you go? Huh? Talk for god's sake!" She yelled and punched me in the stomach. I didn't say a word as she continued punching me. I felt the taste of blood coming out of my mouth as I fell on floor. Everything went black.


My eyes fluttered open. I glanced around, nobody was here. I slowly got up holding on to my stomach which hurts the most. Barely breathing I dragged myself up to my room. I stripped the dress and went into the bathroom to wash up. As I glanced in the mirror, I saw a monster. My make up was all over my face, my hair was sticking in all directions and my bangs were curled up. Why is this happening to me? Why me?

I dressed up quickly realizing how late I was for my extra day of school. My mom made me sign up for it, cause I need 'more practice'. Bullshit. Another bad thing about this extra day of school is that Harry is there too. I never knew why. Maybe, cause he wants to spend his Saturday arguing with me. I took my backpack and slowly walked out of the house trying my best to catch up my breath.

"Fuck you," I murmured as quiet as possible so mom couldn't hear me as I walked by her. As I was walking, I saw a couple of brochures with the X- Factor sign glued to one of the street lamps. I took one and read it carefully. This might be a new beginning. The auditions are starting next week. I really need to think about this.

I walked into the class room receiving everyones' eyes on me. The pain hit me once again and as I tried to walk over to my desk I held on to my stomach.

"Aw, mommy was angry, huh?" Harry began destroying me. I couldn't help my self, but argue back. "Leave me alone, idiot,"

"Stop dreaming, "he chuckled. I rolled my eyes and took out the brochure I got and read through it once again. Making sure, I didn't miss any important information. Not allowed under the age of 16. Yeah, yeah I got it. Should send us music, otherwise you'll perform acapella. Good thing, I didn't miss that. I should figure out which song I have to transfer. It's gotta be something I won't crack on. I am already so into this. Nothing's gonna stop me.

I hid the brochure in my backpack before I walked in the house. I closed the door behind me. I accidentally sang quietly the song I'm planning on auditioning with. My mom of course stood up and started walking over me. "I-I'm sorry.." I murmured. She didn't stop walking though. Now, I was really scared. She slapped me hard across the face.

"What did I say?" she yelled pointing a finger at me. I didn't answer. "What?" she repeated even loudly this time. I still didn't respond.

"Repeat after me," she said. "No singing in the house." A couple of months ago, she made me do the same thing. I'm not giving it up.

"Repeat!" she slapped me once again. "No singing in the house," I murmured.

"You are useless," she said in disgust and walked away. I don't even care anymore. Whatever she says doesn't affect me at all. I went to my room and took out the brochure. I placed it closer to my heart and looked up. "Only you can help me get out of here," I whispered tears filling my eyes.
