1. The Big Meeting.

Paige's P.O.V.

I walked casually out of my apartment building. Not really wanting to be seen by anybody. I'm new to this whole thing. Never in a million year did I think that I would have gotten fans.  I worked hard for my job. Originally I didn't want to act, my parents had forced me into it saying it'd be good for me. At the time I had found that extremely hard to believe.  Now, I'm a 17 year old actress. I just landed a job on a new TV series called I get what I want when I want it. I play the leads best friend. The roll I have is extremely fun though. I get to act so crazy at times, and then at others act all serious. It's fun.

Acting never used to make me so happy, until I actually started trying. I didn't start trying until I met my manager now, he told me to relax and just have fun with it. I haven't really met that many really really famous people, but I obviously have met some. After all, I guess you could say I sorda am one.

Today I have a meeting with Jay. (My manager) He told me that this was an extremely important meeting and I can't be late to it. I'm looking forward to this meeting, but at the same time, I'm nervous. He said that this meeting is really important to my career. So in my eyes, I see it as, if I blow this meeting, my careers dead. Zip! And just like that, I have no job. I can't afford to have no job. I mean yeah as of right now, I'm getting paid good and I live in a really nice apartment, but if I lose my job, then I won't be able to pay for anything I own now. I would most likely have to sell my car. I don't know what other job I could get that actually is fun to do and that pays well. I can't really think of any. Which means I can't blow this meeting. 

I hop in my car and start driving to the studio where the meeting is being held in a little over 2 hours. I like to get to things way earlier than they actually start. Just in case. I turn on the radio and Taylor Swift I knew you were trouble comes on. I'm not a huge fan of her, but I sing along anyways. Being famous for singing would be really cool too. Of course, I can't sing that well. But if I could, then I would probably audition for the voice or something like that.  

I stopped singing as soon as I pulled into the parking lot of the recording studio. I love this place. It's a second home to me! I park my car and get out slowly making my way up room 109.  I knock.  Jay answers the door and gives me a surprised look.

"Wow, your a little early don't you think Paige?" He asks as he guides me into the room and over to the table. 

I laugh and shake my head, "Jay, you know that I always get to things like an hour early. I'm only this early because you said that this meeting was extremely important, and I didn't want to blow it. I can't afford to lose my job." 

He chuckled and sat down at the table across from me, "Paige, you won't lose your job. This meeting is about you having another job opportunity. You don't have to say yes, but if you do, then you can still keep your job as an actress, but it just won't be a full time job any more." 

"Okay? But then if I do say yes to what ever this job offer is, then what about my part on I get what I want when I want it? I have a pretty big part in that show...I wouldn't be able to work that job and whatever this job you have for me." I sighed not knowing what to think about all of this. Was this a good job? Or something completely stupid?

"I'll talk to them if you say yes to this offer. They will understand." Jay's voice had a calming ring to it. I think he can tell I'm nervous. "Hey Paige, don't be so nervous. These people will be able to sense your nervous and won't want you to have this job anymore. You cannot be nervous if you want this job."

I don't even know what this job is. So why should I care if they don't want me to have this job anymore? I sighed. "Fine. Can you please tell me what this job is then?"

He glanced over at the time, "You will find out in about 10 minutes when the people get here." 

I sent him an icy glare. I hated when he didn't just tell me what was going on. He does this a lot. Whenever there is something big. He rolled his eyes at my glare.

"You know Paige, you can't have that attitude with these people, get your act into gear and at least pretend to be happy." He faked a smile at me. I could tell by the look on his face, he was purposefully trying to get  me mad. I rolled my eyes. He couldn't make me angry.

We sat in silence for about 10-15 minutes until there was a knock at the door. Jay went to answer it. I put on a "smile" and pretended to be happy. 

"It's nice to actually meet you three in person!" Jay exclaimed from the doorway. "Please do come in." He opened the door wide enough for them all to enter. Jay made his way back to his seat after shutting the door, and then the other 3 walked over and took a seat. Jay began to talk again, this time to me "Paige, I'd like you to meet Simon, Lou, and Harry" 

I smiled at the three of them. "It's nice to meet you" I took out my hand for the three of them to shake. 

"It's nice to meet you too dear," Lou gave me a warming smile. Simon also shook my hand. "Paige"  The last guy, was the one named Harry. "Hi..." Was all he said.

All three of them had hoods up so it was kind of strange... I glanced at Jay. He began to talk again. "Simon, why don't you explain to Paige the job you are offering her." 

I looked to Simon for him to explain. I kept a smile on my face. These people seemed nice enough. As of now. Simon put his hood down. It was then when I realized, he was Simon Cowell. One of the judges on the X-Factor and an old judge of American Idol.  I decided on playing it cool and not freaking out. 

Simon started to explain, "As you probably already know, I'm a judge on the X-Factor. Well have you heard of the band One Direction that became famous off the X-Factor?"

I nodded, "Yeah, who hasn't?" The Harry guy chuckled at my response.

Simon continued, "Well, this is Lou Teasdale, One Directions stylist." My mouth drops, "Oh my gosh! Really?" I quickly shut my mouth. I'm really not that big of a fan of One Direction, but its amazing that I get to meet their stylist.  Simon chuckles. "So that's your reaction to finding that she's One Direction's stylist, what would your reaction be if I told you that Harry is Harry Styles, a member of One Direction himself?"

Harry and Lou both remove their hoods. My mouth drops open in surprise. I'm not fan-girling or anything, but I just can't believe I get to meet them. I close my mouth as I think of what to say. "Wow...uh I don't know what to say. Is this like a prank or something?" 

Jay laughs, "No your not being pranked." 

"Well you see Paige, your becoming quite famous. When asked by fans in a magazine who Harry would go cutest with for another celebrity they picked you. Since then people on twitter having tweeting things like Haige or Harry you should date Paige Sparks. We decided that maybe we should give the fans what they want. After all, it would get you a lot more fans, and would make One Direction fans happy. What do you say Paige? Do you accept the offer?" Simon looked to me. 

I didn't know what to say. They want me to fake date Harry Styles... "How long do we "date"?"  I put quotations around date because we wouldn't actually be dating. 

Jay handed me a contract, " 4 months."

I began reading the contract over, before deciding, "I'll do it." 

Simon and Jay both smiled. "Great, sign there please." Simon pointed to a line. I quickly handed him the contract back. "Perfect, now, we will leave you and Harry in here to get to know each other. It will help you twos job."  The three smiled and walked out, leaving me with Harry. 

I stood up and walked over to Harry. "So uhh...whats it like to be in the world biggest boy-band?" I asked to avoid the awkward silence that was upon us. 

He stood up next to me and oh my gosh, he as like 3-5 inches tall than me. I couldn't help but say something, "You so much taller than me...I feel like a shrimp."

He chuckled. "Well, maybe you are" He teased.

I giggled, and then replied, "So were you okay with this job?"  The smile left his face. He just nodded in reply. "Uh yeah, but even if I wasn't I don't think I would have gotten a choice." 

I laughed, "You seem really nice Harry" 

Harry began to smile. I think I'm on his good side. "Thanks Paige, you seem like a sweet girl."

This job won't be so bad. I think I'll actually enjoy it! I smiled to myself. I might have a lot of fun these next 4 months.
