Switched

"I wish I could get away from here. I wish people would treat me like I'm worth something." I said aloud to myself. I looked over at my Louis Tomlinson poster hanging on the wall. "I know you would." I said to it. "I see how you treat Eleanor. You treat her like a princess. I wish I was lucky enough to be treated like that. Maybe even by you." A single tear fell down my cheek. I quickly wiped it away. I sat down in my windowsill and stared at the night sky. A glimmer of light caught my eye. I looked over and saw it. A star. It shined brighter than any star I've ever seen. "I wish I could be someone else. Someone who knew Louis." I whispered. I took a deep breath. "I wish I could be Eleanor Calder."

4. The Switch

I heard loud noise from downstairs. 'Ugh. Stupid brothers.' I thought to myself. I felt the bed I was laying in. It felt...different. A lot less rock-like. I opened my eyes and looked down. The bed was white. My bed is light pink. "What the?" I mumbled to myself. Whoa. Is it just me, or did my voice sound...strange. I looked around the room. It was very big. And modern. This was not my room.

I slowly sat up and got out of bed. I was certainly taller. What was going on? I heard another noise. It sounded like someone laughing. It started getting louder. Someone was walking up the stairs! I dived back into bed and covered up right as the door opened. "You up yet?" someone asked. The voiced sounded oddly familiar. I didn't know what to do. I just let out a loud, sleepy sounding groan. The person laughed. "I take that as a yes. Now get up, sleepyhead!"

As soon as I heard the door close, I leaped out of bed. I went over to a door and opened it. Inside was a huge walk in closet. I looked at the clothes. On one side was some beautiful girls clothes. I looked at the other. Boys clothes. And they all looked familiar. Some striped shirts, red jeans, suspenders. Where am I?

I walked out and opened the door that the person came in through. I saw a hallway. I carefully closed the door behind me and walked cautiously down the hallway. I heard voices coming from downstairs. I walked down the stairs. The voices were getting louder as a drew nearer to them. I turned a corner and walked into the living room.

The sight I saw made me stop cold. Louis Tomlinson was sitting right there. Along with Niall, Harry, Zayn and Liam. One Direction was sitting on the couch right in front of me! What was happening? "Good morning, sunshine!" Louis said happily. The other boys smiled and waved at me. I smiled weakly and waved back. "H-Hi." I stuttered.

"Is something wrong?" Liam asked curiously. I stood there for a moment, just staring at the biggest boy band in the world sitting right in front of me. Hello, Earth to Sydney! "Oh, sorry. No. Everything's great." I said quickly. "Are you sure. You look like you're going to pass out." Zayn pointed out. "Umm, I'll be right back." I told them, walking backwards until I was out of sight. I zoomed up the stairs and back to the bedroom. What was going on?

My heart was beating out of my chest and I was breathing like I had just ran a marathon. Where was I? And why was I in the same house as One Direction? My head was pounding as all the different questions whirled through my mind. I wobbled over to the bathroom. I took a deep breath before I looked in the mirror, preparing myself for the worst. What I saw made me gasp. I covered my mouth with my shaking hand.

I was Eleanor Calder.

But how could that happen? What did I...the wish. I had wished to be Eleanor. And it came true! There was a knock on the door. "El? Are you okay?" Louis' voice asked. "Yeah I'm fine. I just feel a little off today." I told him. He opened the door and walked into the bathroom. He looked at me sympathetically. I smiled the best I could, which certainly wasn't very good.

He came close to me and kissed my forehead. Oh my god! Did that just happen? "Hmm, no fever. Are you sure you're alright?" he asked. He reached out and held my hands in his. "Yes. I promise, Lou. I'm fine." I reassured him. I felt butterflies fly through my stomach as he smiled at me. "Okay." he breathed. He gave me a kiss on the cheek before leaving the room.

I looked at myself in the mirror again. Wow, Eleanor sure was pretty in person. I picked up a brush off the counter and started to brush my hair. I didn't really know what else to do. There was a light knock on the door. "Come in." I said. In walked Harry. "Hey, babe. Is everything okay?" he asked, sounding concerned. Did he just call me, I mean Eleanor, babe? "Yeah. I don't know what got into me." I told him.

He stepped closer to me, making me feel rather uncomfortable. "Harry, what are you doing?" I asked him nervously. "What, did you forget about us?" he asked, smirking. Us? What did that mean. Before I could respond, his lips crashed onto mine. I stood in shock for a second. Why was Harry kissing Eleanor? I pushed him away.

"What are you doing?" I snapped at him. "What, I can't kiss my girlfriend?" he asked. Girlfriend? "Harry, I'm not your girlfriend. I'm dating Louis, remember?" I asked him. He gave me a confused look. "Eleanor, I have no idea what your talking about. Did you forget that we have a secret relationship?" he asked, saying the last part in a whisper. Secret relationship? Eleanor and Harry were dating behind Louis' back? What was I supposed to do?

"I'm just kidding with you Harry." I told him, slapping his arm lightly. He chuckled. "Well, you certainly had me. I thought you were serious." I laughed along with him. "Harry, could you go downstairs and make me a bowl of cereal? I'm rather hungry." I told him. "Of course, love." he said smiling. He pecked me cheek before leaving to make me breakfast.

What just happened? I fell backwards onto the bed and let out a big, long sigh. Hundreds of thing were rushing through my head. Eleanor was cheating on Louis with his best friend? Did anyone know? What happened to, well, me? Was my family okay? Ugh! It was aggravating me not knowing the answers.

As I thought more and more about the switch, I realized that it might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I mean, my life in Montana is so stressful. I have to put up with a bunch of crap that nobody should have to deal with. And now I have what I've always wanted. Louis Tomlinson. But what am I going to do about Harry? I can't just end it between him and Eleanor, I don't know any of the details about their relationship.

But I guess I should just go with it. Because who knows, maybe I can have the perfect life I've always wanted. Haha, a girl can dream, can't she?
