17. Talent Show.

Kenzie's POV:

Tonight was the big talent show. 

In school that's all we were doing, preparing. I wandered the halls staring at the piece of paper in my hands. I decided to change songs because my little sister found my journal and said she wanted to hear me sing this. I heard my name being called so I looked up from the piece of paper to see Liam and Niall waving me over. I smiled at them and made my way over to where they were sitting. 

"Excited?" Niall asked as I sat down.

"More like nervous." I laughed. 

"I think you'll be great." Liam smiled. 

"I hope so." I sighed.

"Why did you change your song?" Liam asked. 

"Because my little sister went through my notebook and found this song and said she wanted to hear me sing it." I smiled. 

"I can't wait to hear it either!" Niall said with his bright blue eyes peering at me and his smile wide. 

I smiled at him then smiled at Liam. I was so nervous about tonight. I hope I don't make a fool of myself. 

*Show Time!*

I paced the halls with anxious feet. My heart was beating so fast I felt sick to my stomach. I heard someone calling my name so I turned around to see a blonde boy with bright blue eyes. Niall was dressed in a black suit with a baby blue tie. He was holding some flowers in his hand. 

"Nervous?" He teased.

"Extremely." I let out a huge breath of air. 

"Everything will be fine. You'll be fine." 

"I hope so." 

"Lets go I think they're calling us backstage." He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the stage. Everyone looked so nice dressed up. Taylor was kissing up on Harry before she was called out onto the stage. Soon the boys went onto stage and I found myself hypnotized on every word. Then soon it got to me. I heard my name being called by the music teacher and I took a deep breath then walked out into the bright lights. 


Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight,
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen.
The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside.
Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.

Don't let them in, don't let them see,
Be the good girl you always had to be.
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know.
Well now they know.

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand and here I'll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all.
Up here in the cold thin air I finally can breathe.
I know I left a life behind but I'm too relieved to grieve.

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, and here I'll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway

Standing frozen
In the life I've chosen.
You won't find me.
The past is all behind me
Buried in the snow.

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand, and here I'll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway, yeah, whoa
(Na na, na na, na na na na) [x4]
Let it go yeah
Na, na.
Here I stand.
Let it go, let it go, oh
Let it go.

After the music ended I took a step back and let out a huge sigh a relief. The crowd was clapping a cheering as I went backstage. I ran out to the hall and fell to my weak knees. I felt a hand on my back and someone bending next to me. I looked to my side to see blue eyes staring at me worriedly. 

"Are you alright?" Niall asked.

"It's over right?" I asked.

"Yeah it is." He chuckled.

"The yeah I'm alright." I laughed.

He hugged me and rubbed my back.

"You did great Makkie." He smiled at me.

"You did better." I laughed until I realized he called me Makkie. "Why did you call me that?" 

"Your full name is Makenzie right?" He asked.

"Yeah..." I muttered.

"That's why." He laughed. He picked up the flowers he had earlier and handed them to me. I looked at him confused and then took them. 

"Thank you..." I mumbled. 

"Kenzie! You won!" Eleanor came running out with Louis behind her. "You won!" She pulled me by my hand and pushed me out onto stage. Where the music teacher gave me the trophy. Everyone was clapping and I felt like crying. Afterwards I wandered the halls in search for my mother. 

"Kenny!" I turned around to see Jack and the others. My mother pulled me in a tight hug congratulating me. 

"You were amazing Makenzie." James smiled at me.

Heading out to the car I stared at the ground. It was clear that it had just gotten done raining because the ground was wet. Halfway to the car I felt someone pick me up and spinning me around. When I was firmly on the ground I turned around to see Liam. He smiled brightly at me. 

"You scared me!" I giggled.

"You were great tonight just like I knew you'd be!" He smiled. He kissed my cheek then headed to his own car. I almost screamed when I felt someone touching me. I turned to see Phoebe. 

"You have a lot of friends..." She mumbled.

"I guess I do..." I smiled. 

"Can you convince mom to let me come here...?" She looked at me with pleading eyes. "I don't have any friends at my highschool..." 

"Sure I don't see why not." I smiled at her before she tightly hugged me.
