4. Laura’s POV

“Well…” I began, staring at the table. I couldn’t believe what had just happened; and Louis was bouncing his leg next to mine and I was almost about to faint, I think. Something kicked my foot and I jumped, glaring at Kate, who looked at the ceiling nervously. “My name’s Laura…” I continued, breathing in a shaky breath and looking around at the boys and Kate. “I’m 19, live in a small town that’s basically in the middle of nowhere; I have 2 sisters one old, one younger. I love music- have since I started high school- it helped me get through school and that’s probably one of the reason why I play guitar. Also because I just love the sound that an acoustic guitar makes.” I stopped, trying to keep my hands from shaking under the table. “I’m also best friends with that idiot-” I said, take my hand from under the table and pointing at Kate. “-but also the most awesome friend I could ever have.” I finished, quickly putting my hand back under the table before I started shaking with nerves again.

I looked down at the table again, feeling as though my mouth would betray my brain and say something else and make me even more nervous. “Well, nice to meet you, love,” Louis began, making me blush a bit at him calling me love. “I think I speak for all of us when I say, we would love to hear you play sometime.” I heard Louis say, making me look up at him and then the rest of the boys. “You did say something about busking somewhere tomorrow, remember?” Kate mumbled, trying to get me to agree. “Really?” Zayn asked. I glared at Kate for mentioning that, but let it go as I quickly took a sip of my drink and nodded my head to answer Zayn’s question.

“Yeah, we were trying to think of something to do tomorrow- we’re going to your concert- and we don’t want to just lay around in our hotel room until we have to leave, so I thought about going somewhere and doing a bit of busking.” I replied, playing with my hair so it fell over one of my eyes.

“Your turn to introduce yourself, Kate.” I injected quickly, trying to get their eyes off of me.

Kate poked her tongue out at me- making me giggle, yes you heard me, giggle- and then turned to the boys and introduced herself.

I was half listening to her talk and half in my own little world, before I knew it my drink and glass were gone. “Laura?? Laura!!!” Someone yelled my name, making me jump and look around to see everyone looking at me with amused looks on their faces.

“What?” I asked, confused.

“The boys were wondering if they could hear you play your guitar now.” Kate stated, giving me a look that basically said ‘stop doing that’.

“Give me your keys and I’ll go grab my guitar.” I replied, standing up and walking around to her as she pulled her car keys out of her pocket.

“Thanks,” I said cheerfully, heading for the lobby.

My mind was spinning with thoughts of how lucky Kate and I were that we are staying in the same hotel as 1D and that right now my best friend was in the lounge talking with the boys while I went and got my guitar.

The ride down to the car park was something I’ve never done before, the moment I got into the lift and the doors had closed I started screaming and jumping up and down making the lift bounce.

Well, what do you expect from a Directioner that just met her idols and the five idiots that saved her life.

Thankfully, I had managed to calm myself down just before the doors opened to the car park. I quickly walked over to Kate’s car that- thankfully- wasn’t that far from the lift, and opened the boot to retrieve my guitar.

Once I was sure that there wasn’t anything else that I need, I locked the car and headed back to lift to head back up to the lounge and- hopefully- not make a fool of myself.

“Gee, Laura, get a hold of yourself already.” I mumbled to myself as I stood in the lift as it made its way up.

The lift chimed, signalling that it was on the level I wanted and opened the doors.

I walked out and made my way back over to where I had left Kate and 1D; my guitar was strapped on my back like a backpack and I nervously played with my fingers as I slowly got closer and closer to playing for the boys.

“Hey, I was just about to send a search party out to go find you and make sure you hadn’t gotten lost.” Kate grinned at me.

I laughed and took my guitar off of my back and sat back down next to Louis. “You really think that I could get lost in this place? I don’t think I could even get lost in the car park even if I wanted to.” I replied making everyone laugh.

“I’ll be right back,” I said, getting up and leaning my guitar against the wall. I walked up to the bar, my purse was in our room but I still and some cash in my pocket.

“Jim Beam and Coke, thanks.” I said to the bartender as I sat down on the stool and waited for my drink.

“You alright, love?” A voice next to me asked; sure I knew that voice, I would know it anywhere after all I’m falling hard for this guy.

“Yeah, I fine but thanks, Lou.” I answered, looking at him through my hair that had fallen over my face.

The bartender came back with my drink, I thanked him and I reached into my pocket to get some money but stopped when I heard Louis say something along the lines of ‘Here mate,’ and ‘Keep the change.’ I turned back and looked at him with a bit of a confused look on my face.

“You didn’t have to pay for my drink, Lou,” I said, trying to look as though I wasn’t happy that he paid for it but failed as a smile crept onto my face. “But thanks.” I said, grabbing my drink and taking a sip.

“Not a problem, love.” Lou grinned at me, then nodded back at the table where the others were.

“Wanna join them? I still want to hear you play as well.” Louis said, the smile on my face slowly went away and I felt the colour rushed from my face as I realised that there was no way that I was going to get out of playing for the boys.

“Are you alright, Laura?” I heard Louis asked me but couldn’t do anything as my mind started spinning with thoughts of the boys not liking how I played and them walking off with Kate, leaving me by myself.

A tear slipped out my eye and down my cheek, bringing me out of my mind of crazy and stupid thoughts. I shook my head and wiped my cheek before looking at Louis to see him looking at me with a very concerned look on his face.

“Sorry……I-I,” I sighed and took a deep breath and started explaining what had just happened to Louis.

“My mind starts going into over-drive and starts making up some crazy thoughts, sometimes I believe them- like I just did- and other times I just laugh about it.” I told him, looking down at my drink.

Before he could say anything I quickly slid off the stool and walked back over to join the others. As I sat down and put my drink on the table, I looked over at Kate and saw her mouth ‘are you ok?’ I nodded and gave her a small smile then joined in on the conversation that the boys were having.

“So, Laura,” Harry began, taking me off guard. I looked at him as Louis came back over and sat down next to me.

“Yes, Harold?” I asked, grinning as he chuckled at me for calling him ‘Harold’.

“Can we hear you play now?” Harry asked, a hopefully look in his eyes. I looked down at my hands in my lap only to see another hand being placed on top of them. Following the hand up the arm I realised that it was Louis, smiling at him I looked back over at Harry, took a deep breath and said. “Sure.”

Standing up I turned to my guitar case and unzipped it to pull my acoustic out. I held it to my chest quickly and strummed the strings, only to hear that it was out of tune and realised then that my tuner with in our room in my bag. “Hey Niall? Umm…… could you tune my guitar for me?” I asked shyly. He chuckled and nodded as I handed it to him for him to tune.

“Why couldn’t you tune it?” Zayn asked me. I shrugged and looked down. “I don’t know how to tune a guitar from ear. I have an electric tuner but I left it in mine and Kate’s room.” I replied, thinking that he didn’t hear me.

I looked up and smiled a thank you at Niall before taking my guitar from him. I walked over to the bar and grabbed a stool and took it over to the table so I could sit on that instead of the chair. Sitting down and resting the guitar on my knee I looked up at the boys and Kate.

“Okay, what song do you guys want me to play?” I asked, nerves showing in my voice.

I saw Kate grin at me as she got up and walked over. “Sing moments for them! Your voice is awesome with that song.” She whispered in my ear before heading back over to the table and sat back down.

I smiled at her and turned to position my fingers on the starting chord. Take a deep breath and slowly releasing it, I started playing.

Shut the door
Turn the light off
I wanna be with you
I wanna feel your love
I wanna lay down beside you
I cannot hide this
Even though I try
Heart beats harder
Time escapes me
Trembling hands touch skin
It makes this harder
And the tears stream down my face

If we could only have this life for one more day
If we could only turn back time

You know I’ll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I’ll find the words to say
Before you leave me today

Close the door
Throw the key
Don’t wanna be reminded
Don’t wanna be seen
Don’t wanna be without you
My judgements clouded
Like tonight’s sky

Hands are silent
voice is numb
try to scream out my lungs
It makes this harder
And the tears stream down my face

If we could only have this life for one more day
If we could only turn back time

You know I’ll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I’ll find the words to say
Before you leave me today

Flashing lights in my mind
Going back to the time
Playing games in the street
Kicking balls with my feet
Dancing on with my toes
Standing close to the edge
There’s a pile of my clothes
At the end of your bed
As I feel myself fall,
Make a joke of it all

You know I’ll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I’ll find the words to say
Before you leave me today
You know I’ll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I’ll find the words to say
Before you leave me today
