He really didn't joke when he said he had to go to work early today. When the twins woke up at 7am he was already gone. He left a note though, alongside his clothes on the bathroom floor. I guess it's something about the guys I bring home, they always seem to forget a piece of clothing.
Anyway at 10am I got a call from Mr. Cowell himself. It was the first time I ever spoke to him, and even over the phone he was extremely intimidating.
What he told me was that to fix up the little episode outside the hospital yesterday I had to give an interview explaining it all to the world. Of course I agreed to do it since it would correct One Direction's reputation for friends and such. I didn't want to, but I really wanted to make things right between Harry and I, and this was going to help a lot.
The interview will take place at 12pm, but I have to get down there in ten minutes, only problem I have is that I have the twins and there is no one to watch them so I have to bring them down, but I can't bring them on TV.
"You were not supposed to bring these two boys with you." Mr. Cowell said with a stern voice.
"I know Mr. Cowell, but I had no choice."
"What is that supposed to mean? Of course you had a choice, leave them or bring them. Last time I checked that was a choice." He was clearly upset with me, I can see why since the twins were running around while I was prepared for the interview.
"I'm supposed to be watching them until their parents have the opportunity to again take care of their children, and on a two hour notice I had no chance finding a sitter, since I am their sitter. That's why I had no choice to leave them." He sighed obviously annoyed an upset as he knew I was right.
"Well how are you planning on keeping them quiet and still during your interview?"
"There is a TV in the back room isn't there?" He simply nodded.
"Well, then we can place them there and put on a kids show, and I'm sure you have an adult to sit there with them."
"Fine. Take them back there and we'll make that work." And with that he walked off, and I could breathe out. He was so much more intimidating in real life.
After my hair and makeup was done I led the twins back to the room and left them there with an adult who was alright with it, before I went back and waited for my cue to go in.
"Alright ladies and gentlemen our next guest has been big news in the world of One Direction for a day now, and she is here to tell us some juicy deets on what's happening! Give it up for Emma Stevens!" The interviewer introduced me for the cheering crowd. I was nervous and not at all ready to give out the 'deets' on everything, though I know I have to.
I started to walk on stage smiling softly at the cameras as I was told to do. When I reached the interviewer I gave him a slight hug before sitting down in the chair opposite of him. As the crowd went silent the interview started.
"So Emma, how are you?" What? I thought this was all about One Direction and the video and stuff.
"I-I'm fine, thanks for asking." I answered hesitantly, but smiling.
"Good, good. So yesterday, tell me about it." I sighed.
"What exactly would you want to know?" I asked innocently, still having a smile plastered to my face.
"Well let's start with the pictures shall we?" As he said that pictures of me Niall and the twins in the park showed up on the big screen behind him.
"The ones from the park?" He nodded.
"Well you see I was watching the twins when Niall approached me and sat down by my side. We started chatting which led to his question about me coming to the radio station with him for his interview there. And after asking the twins if they would want to come too we started our walk to the station as the twins had said yes to tag along." I started to explained for the interviewer and the crowd.
"May I ask who these twins are?"
"Of course! They are my neighbours, and I'm watching them while their parents is on a vacation for a couple of days."
"That's sweet of you, it really is! But are you sure that you're not lying?"
"Excuse me?" I asked clearly offended, losing my smile.
"I mean, you're sure you're not telling me that they're your neighbours kids, when in reality they're yours and Niall's?" What the heck?
"I thought Niall and I made that very clear yesterday!"
"Sure, I'm just checking." I gave him a slight, nearly unnoticeable glare before calming down completely.
"So what else you wanna know?" I longed as I wanted to finish this interview asap.
"Why were you in the hospital yesterday?" Now the pictures from the park were switched out with some pictures of Niall leaving me and the twins at the hospital.
"A relative of mine is hospitalised and I wanted to visit them."
"Then how come you brought the twins with you?"
"Because I'm watching them and where I go, they go. Simple as that."
"Then how come you left the hospital with a bloke by your side?" And now we could see some pictures from when we exited the hospital.
"It so happens that one of my mates work in that hospital too and his shift was over so we went out for a coffee."
"So he's not your boyfriend?"
"Absolutely not. I'm as single as can be." I smiled confidently since I pulled all these lies off so well, though I actually am single.
"Oh and before I forget it. I would like to apologise to everyone because I swore at that paparazzi yesterday, it just slipped and I'm truly sorry for that!" I said doing my best looking sorry and regretful.
"That's really sweet of you to apologise. Now there is one more thing I need to ask you about."
"Actually it might be two, but firstly. I know that One Direction is going on tour as for today, but when are you going to tag along?"
"Whenever I want to actually. I'll watch the twins for a little while and then I'll probably go to the tour after that."
"Okaay.. But then I'll lay on you the biggest question that is really on everyone's minds." He paused as the crowd sheered him on. I knew what was coming, this was the biggest reason why I didn't want to give this interview in the first place.
"How are things between you and Mr. Styles? I heard something about a fight between the two of you, and now I was wondering if you could fill us in on the deets." I had to be careful with my words, couldn't let out the little secret crush I had on him. The picture showing on the big screen didn't help as it was one of my favourites of him.
"Well, it wasn't much of a fight really, it was just him being upset that I couldn't go with them when I was supposed to since I got this last minute babysitting job. And then we both got quite upset and we've stayed quite quiet since then." I smiled quite happy with my answer, though I seemed to be the only one.
"Oh come on! We all heard the radio interview yesterday, it was some girl telling you Harry was done being your friend and it made you cry and these kids of yours comforted you."
"They're not my kids." Was all I could say for the moment being.
"Also I can't seem to understand why you asked if you knew the answer."
"Just to see how honest you would be with me. And I can see you weren't very honest." Shit, I need to fix this and not only because of the angry look from Mr. Cowell, but for everyone else who was being dragged into this mess.
"Well I'll let you know that everything else I've said this whole interview is true, and that I only lied about that last question because I didn't want another secret out." Did I really just tell him I had a secret? God this is so not good.
"What secret?" I took a deep breath, I can't believe I'm about to do this!
"I'm pregnant." The whole crowd including the interviewer gasped.
"You're pregnant? Whose baby is it?" I can't believe I'm actually doing this. I really don't want to.
"That's not to be revealed yet, but I'll let you know that that was what we were arguing about before Harry stormed off and what you said happened."
"Is it Harry's baby? Is he the father? Or is it that bloke from the hospital?"
We wrapped up the interview and as soon as I got off stage my phone buzzed. It was Emily calling.
"You are pregnant!?! Whose the father!"
"What? But you just said-"
"I know what I said, but I'm not. Come to my place in an hour and I'll explain, okay?"
"I have another call, so I have to go, bye!"
"Bye!" We hung up and I answered the other call.
"Are you pregnant!?!" I heard five boys yell from the other side of the line.
"No guys, I'm not. Emily is coming to my place in an hour, we'll Skype you guys and I'll explain it all to you, okay?"
"Sure, see you then!" Liam said.
"Will do, bye!"
"Bye-" they started.
"Wait!" One of them cut of.
"Can I talk to you privately for a bit?" Harry asked unsure. I sighed.
"Can we do it later, I'm kind of exhausted right now.."
"Okay.. Bye then."
"Bye." I hung up and turned around to see a very pleased Mr. Cowell standing in front of me.
"You did a great job! It'll be great having you on tour!" He said before walking off. I sighed once again before getting the twins and heading home.
