3. The Audition: Raina

Raina’s POV:

     This is it. The day I’ve been waiting for my whole life, the audition. Well, the day I heard about the X-Factor/One Direction. I called my best friend Macey, and told her. I hadn’t told her before because she never was supportive of my dream. Here’s how the conversation went.

Me: Hey Mace how’s Ireland?

Macey: Oh, great I met this really cute blonde boy.

Me: What color are his eyes?

I was getting really suspicious… What if it was Niall Horan? I mean they are off from their tour right now.

Macey: Hard to say, sometimes they’re green.

Oh no.

Macey: And sometimes they’re brown!

I sighed with relief, I may not be a Niall girl, but knowing Macey… Let’s just say there would be a lot of broken hearts, and that heart would be Niall’s.

Me: Great! Anyways I called to tell you, erm. Well, Idecidedtotryoutforthex-factorwhileyouwereawaybecasueiknewyoudidn’twantmeto.

I said all in one breath, another reason I should be a singer!

Macey: What! But you know I don’t want you too!

Me: Macey you can’t control my life! What is it you have against my dream anyways?

Macey: That I might lose you.

She seemed sad, broken, but most of all hurt.

Me: Lose me?

I choked out,

Me: Why would you think you would lose me?

Macey: Because Raina,

She said it like I should’ve known the answer.

Macey: You’re an amazing singer, and I know that there’s a great chance that you’ll win, become famous, and marry Harry Styles.

Me: Macey! I would never not be your best friend! I’ve always got your back! But I’ve got to go just arrived! Ciao!

Macey: Au revoir!

     I laughed at our deal to say goodbye in different languages. I walked up to get my number, and was greeted by  a man in a grey sweater vest. “Hello, I’d like to get my number please?” I asked politely. “Oh, yes. And your name ma’am?” “Raina Lux?” I sort of asked, as to clarify if my name was on the list. “Ah, yes Raina Lux, here you go.” He handed me a number. 112 that was my number. Great I’m going to be one of the last people here. This is going to be a long day.

      As I sat down in a random chair I noticed a boy checking me out. I walked up to him sweetly and said, “Hey,” “Hey pretty lady,” he replied. “I’m too good for you, just so you know. So I suggest you walk away right now.” He hung his head and sulked away. No one’s getting me that easily, besides I have very high standards, because of Harry Styles. My mom says I’m never going to get a boyfriend because my bar is set too high, but I highly doubt that. I went back to my seat and sat down, I began warming up but gave up on it instantly. I decided to check my twitter, I barely follow anyone but One Direction anyways. Harry just tweeted,

‘About to fly to America! America here we come!’

      Harry Styles is coming to America. One Direction is coming to America! I am so excited! Wait, why is One Direction in America? They just ended their tour, and the next one starts in Europe, curious. “Numbers 80-90?” a woman called through the hall. Ten people reluctantly stood up and walked over to her. Good I’ll be up soon, now I must warm-up. I began with Do-Re-Me-etc., then I started on my audition song. ‘Summer Love’ by One Direction, of course. Numbers 100-110 were called, my group is next. It’s very weird because I’m not nervous, even though I should be. “Numbers 111-120?” the same woman called. I got up and walked up to her. She led us to a small room with three green  loveseats. “This,” she gestured towards the room,” Is the Green Room. If you make it into Boot Camp you will become very fond of it. The Green Room is a waiting room basically, so wait here until your number is called.” She told us all.

       She called number 111 and he walked out onto the stage. I was up next, still not nervous! I feel like I should be but I’m not! “Number 112?112?” The woman called for me. “That’s me!” I called. “Follow me.” She said. I followed her to behind the curtains. As the guy known as number 111 walked off of the stage looking angry. “Next!” someone else behind the curtain called. I walked out onto the stage, I was greeted by a happy hello from Demi. “Hi, and what’s your name?” she asked sweetly. “My name is Raina, Raina Lux!” I replied happy to talk to Demi Lovato. “What a beautiful name,” Paulina cut it. “Thank you,” I replied quietly, talking to these big stars… I was really nervous now. “Okay enough with the chit-chat, not to be rude but, what will you be singing for us today?” he asked me. “Summer Love by-“ “One Direction, I know please get along with it.” He cut me off. “Yes, sir.” I started to sing,

“Yeah-ah-ah-ah
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Can't believe you're packing your bags
Trying so hard not to cry
Had the best time and now it's the worst time
But we have to say goodbye


Don't promise that you're gonna write
Don't promise that you'll call
Just promise that you won't forget we had it all

'Cause you were mine for the summer
Now we know it's nearly over
Feels like snow in September
But I always will remember
You were my summer love
You always will be my summer love


Wish that we could be alone now
If we could find some place to hide
Make the last time just like the first time
Push a button and rewind


Don't say the word that's on your lips
Don't look at me that way
Just promise you'll remember
When the sky is grey

'Cause you were mine for the summer
Now we know it's nearly over
Feels like snow in September
But I always will remember
You were my summer love
You always will be my summer love

So please don't make this any harder
We can't take this any farther
And I know there's nothing that I wanna  change, change

'Cause you were mine for the summer
Now we know it's nearly over
Feels like snow in September
But I always will remember
You were my summer love (summer love)
You always will be my summer love (summer love)
You always will be my summer love (yeah)
You always will be my summer love”

They let me finish! This is a good sign! I hope… My thoughts were cut-off by Simon sighing, “I liked you voice, but incorrect song choice… It’s a no from me.” Demi gasped. “I think Simon’s thoughts are falsely incorrect! You were amazing, and the song choice was amazing!” Now it was Paulina’s turn to speak. “I agree and disagree with Simon, not the best song choice… But you have an amazing voice, and with Demi’s help, you will do great things. So a yes from me.” Kelly’s turn, I need one more yes! Come on Kelly! “I totally agree with Paulina everything she said… YES!” I squealed. “Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! You’re making my dream a reality!” “Okay, okay go along get your ticket.” Simon laughed. “I ran to the other side of the stage and grabbed a pass from a worker. I skipped out of the audition hall, and to my car. I called Macey… And she was happy for me! Here’s our conversation:

Me: Hey girl

I said it sadly.

Macey: Oh no! You didn’t make it? I was so sure, you had to! I’m coming over right now-

Me: No! No! Macey I got in! Maybe I should be an actress too!

She laughed

Macey: Okay sure

She said still laughing

Macey: Anyways I’ve got to go, mom got sick we’re about to board the plane, Adios Amiga!

Me: Auf Wiedersehen!

Macey: What language is that?

Me: German!

Macey: Cool! Anyway got to go!

I buckled in my car, and started it. I drove home singing “Summer Love” the whole way...
