6th Direction

Marina was suppose to be a solo artist. With her name on shining lights, having sold out concerts, and living next to Oprah. But for the next three years, she has to live on a tour bus and travel 24/7 with four British boys and one Irish who go by One Direction. Now that she signed the wrong contract and she can't take it back and change it...she has to become the newest member of One Direction. Now she has to deal with management and having to have a fake relationship between Niall and Harry. But the question is...can she handle the pressure of fame?


4. The Sassy, The Awkward, and Alice

I looked at myself in the mirror. I hated my body. People called me skinny but my thighs are huge, my boobs take over my whole chest, and I still have fat on my stomach. Maybe if I change my skinny jeans no one will notice.

"Are you still changing?" my dad came in with his hand over his eyes.

"I was gonna change my jeans but I'll wait," I smiled.

I turned around and he took his hand off his face. He was wearing his nurse uniform.

"You just came from work?" I asked looking back at the mirror.

"No. I've been asleep since you came home. Thats why I didn't eat dinner with you guys," he sat on my bed staring at the ceiling.

The awkward silence started....again. I went to pick up my phone and text Alice when my dad started to cough.

"Is that what you're gonna wear? To meet those boys?" He observed my outfit in a protective way. "Don't you think its a bit...tight?"

I turned back to the mirror. My gray Beastie Boys shirt was a little tight and my black leather jacket squeezed my chest a bit but other than that, my outfit seemed fine.

I unzipped the jacket. "Better?"

"I was talking about the jeans," he said. "They're a little tight on your legs..."

I responded with a nod. "I was considering changing them anyway."

My phone buzzed on my desk. I looked at my dad to see if it was alright and he nodded. It was a text from Alice.

Alice: Be there in three minutes. Getting some slushees from 7 Eleven want anything??

I quickly responded: Of course I do. I want the green slurpee, best color in the world!! ;)

Before I could put my phone in my jacket pocket Alice texted back: Alright fatass :*

I chuckled a little as I put my phone in my jacket pocket.

"Was that Alice?" My dad watched me curiously.

"Yeah, she's on her way."

He nodded his head and said oh. I fiddled with my fingers until my father realized he was to either speak or leave.

"Well I just wanted to see you before I head to work," he got up and walked to me. He hugged me tightly, "Just be careful around those boys. European guys are way more sneaky than Americans."

I laughed softly. "And you know this how?"

"Well my friend Robert's son lives in the UK, that kid has way too many girlfriends."

We both started to laugh out loud.

As we both settled down I smiled. I missed having these moments with my dad.

"Well.." my dad sighed checking his watch. "I gotta go. Don't wanna be late."

I nodded. "Ok. Later alligator."

"Alright Sarcastic Sally."

He kissed my forehead and as he walked out of my room, Alice brushed past him. "Hey Mr. Campbell!"

"Nice seeing you again Alice. How's your mom?"

"She's holding up. She's a fighter."

"That's great. Tell her I'll bring her medication on my way home."

Alice smiled at my father's kind gesture. "Your dad is awesome!"

I chuckled. I observed Alice's outfit. Black leather pants, navy blue dressy tank top, black Jeffrey Campbell heels and a black leather jacket.

"That's a whole lot of leather..." I said surprised.

"Well leather is sexy. THIS-" Alice gestured at her body. "Is for Louis."

I shook my head laughed. "Alrighty Alice. Let's meet them, get it over with, and go get food afterwards. I'm starving!"

Alice pushed me aside to look in the mirror again. "Just checking," she nudged me, reading my mind. She turned around and we walked downstairs where James and Mom were eating breakfast.

"Bye mom!" I ran up to her and hugged her. She kissed my forehead and hugged me with one arm, still using her other to feed herself.

"Do I get a goodbye?" James asked innocently. Yeah, I was still pissed that there was no way of getting the contract voided, but like Mom said at least he tried.

I hugged James tightly and kissed his cheek. "You get a 'see you later'. Goodbye is for when you're dead."

He smiled widely with his mouth closed. Alice waved at the both of them and we headed out the door to her car.

As we got in Alice turned to me. "You ready Marina?"


"Good," Alice laughed wickedly. She started the car, pulling out of my driveway and on the road to New York City.


"This is way past being fashionably late," I groaned slouching in the chair.

"Calm down," Alice smiled cheerfully. "Look on the bright side."

I gave her a death stare. "What bright side could there possibly be for us to freaking wait 15 minutes for them?"

"Well most girls can only talk to them for five minutes but we get to talk to them longer," she spun my chair around. "And you are also the new member of One Direction so they have to welcome you in with open arms. "

I groaned in fustration. "How will we know when they're here?"

"When we hear one of those women out there say 'Oh can I get a picture with you guys. It's for my niece/daughter'"

I shook my head. "That's so not true."

"The girls are in that room over there," I heard a women say loudly. I got up and slightly opened the door.

"But before you all go in...can I get a picture with you five? My niece loves you guys."

My mouth opened wide in disbelief. "Unbelievable-"

"Told ya!" Alice whisper-shouted. She pulled me away from the door and helped me "prep myself" before they come in.

"Ready?" Alice asked fixing my hair.

I shook my head. "No."

"That's the spirit!" Alice winked and faced the door.

The door opened, Liam being the first to walk in.

"Hi girls!" Zayn smiled coming in behind Liam. He leaned forward and shook our hands. They were so.....manly.

"Hello to you too," Alice started flirting.

The others all walked in behind them. Harry and Niall seemed to be happy to see us while Louis looked extra..sassy today.

"So you must be Marina..," Harry shook Alice's hand.

Alice blushed and giggled. "I'm actually Alice. Friend of Marina."

Then they all looked at me. I'm sure they were expecting the pretty, girly girl to be there new member.

"Perfect!" Liam smiled.

Alice and I exchanged confused looks. "Why perfect?"

"Because, our tour bus doesn't have enough space for all those designer shoes," Lou scoffed.

Alice looked at me confused.

"No offense," Lou added.

Alice smiled sarcastically. "None taken."

"We love your albums, by the way," Alice added.

Zayn blushed a little. "Thanks."

"And your faces." Alice blurted out.

I nudged her to make her stop. This was not making things better. A silence fell over the room.

And then my stomach growled.

"Niall!" Liam suddenly looked at Niall.

Niall's eyes widened. "It wasn't me this time mate, I swear!"

"It was my stomach. I basically had a slurpee from 7 Eleven for breakfast."

"You poor thing," Louis looked at me. I wasn't sure if he meant that in a caring way or as if he said it to me in a mean way.

"Well we should fix that," Harry smiled at me. "The lads and I haven't eaten yet either."

"I don't think-" is all I could say before Alice stepped in front of me.

"We don't think we should just be standing here talking. Let's go grab some food."

I gave her a death stare. The last thing I want to do right now is eat lunch with them. But this is Alice we are talking about. She will even tape me to the seat, as long as I sat with them. I mean, what's the worst that can happen?
