"I can't believe we are in LA right now!" Kirsty said as we walked off the plane. I can't believe it either. As we walked into the airport, a guy was holding up a sign that had my name on it.
"Hi." I said to the man.
"Are you Melody?" He asked me.
"Yupp." I said.
"And who is this with you?" He said looking at Kirsty.
"This is my little sister Kirsty." I said. Kirsty smiled.
The guy smiled back and led us to a long limo.
"Woah." Me and Kirsty said in unison. The guy opened up the door for us and we hopped in.
"So are you excited?" Kirsty asked me as we drove off.
"I'm not really sure. I don't think I am ready for this. I think I need more time." I said.
"Mel, you been doing this practically your whole life. Are you scared?" She asked.
"It's not that I am scared. I'm not sure if I could leave Ronnie or mom and dad or you and Aiden. It won't be the same. I will barely be able to see you guys." I said looking down at my feet.
"Is this what you want? To have your songs on the radio. To be able to tour around the world. To inspire people." She said.
"Yes." I said.
"Then shut up and go for it. This may be your only chance. Do not waste it." She said and I pulled her in for a hug.
"Thanks." I said.
Soon the limo stopped and we was here. At Syco Records. The guy opened the door for us and soon led us into the building and to a waiting room.
"I will let him know you are here." The man said as he walked away. We just sat here in silence looking around.
"Are you new to Syco Records?" A girl said as she sat next to me.
"Umm yeah, kinda." I said.
"Sorry for asking. I just never seen you here." She smiled and stuck out her hand. I smiled and shook it.
"It's ok. I'm just new to LA in general." I laughed.
"You're Mirella!! I am a big fan!" Kirsty yelled. I gave her a stare and she shrugged her shoulders.
"Haha yeah I am. It's nice to meet you.." She said before Kirsty interrupted her.
"Kirsty Ulgiati." She smiled as she shook her hand.
"So are you getting signed today?" Mirella asked me.
"I'm not sure. Maybe. I don't know what I even want to do." I sighed.
"Well whatever you choose, don't let it mess you with later on. At first I was so nervous and didn't want to leave anyone behind, but I would do the same thing over again." She smiled and stood up.
"Wait, you didn't lose any friends or anything?" I asked.
"I lost friends and I became somewhat distant with family, but if they truly loved you, they would stick with you till the end. And I have some family and friends who still stuck with me and still do. You will lose people but meet new ones. You will get enemy's but have amazing fans. It's life. Well I better go. Hope to see you one day again." She waved and left the building. Fans were outside waiting for her and I saw her take pictures and sign autographs.
"Melody Ulgiati?" I heard from a room. Simon Cowell walked out towards me.
"Yes." I said as I stood up with Kirsty. "This is my sister. I hope you don't mind her being here."
"It's no problem to me. Follow me please." He said as he leads us back into the room he was in.
"Please have a seat. Would you like anything to drink?" He asks.
"A water please." I say.
"The same." Kirsty says. A woman standing y the door nods and leaves the room.
"So Melody. I got a call from a buddy of mine who said he was emailed your song too. We both listened to it and I was amazed at the talent you have. I would love to work with you personally. With my help, you can make it big. Just look at One Direction." He smiled at me.
"I am just curious. Who sent you the email?" I asked.
"His name is Paul. One Direction's manager? I thought you sent it to him." He looked confused.
"...oh yeah. I just forgot his name, that's all." I faked a laugh.
Kirsty looked at me with wide eyes and I gave her another stare.
"Anyways, I would like to sign you to Syco Records for a one year contract. Just so you can get a feel with how this all works." He says as he sets a paper in front of me. The woman comes in with our waters and walks back out. I take a sip of the water.
"I will do it." I told him.
"Really? That is great! Just sign here please." He points to a spot on the paper. I sign and set the pen down.
"Thank you for joining Syco Records. We start first thing next Monday." He smiles.
"So how does this all work?" I asked.
"Well you will be staying in LA for a while so I will let you go home and get everything ready. It's a new start for you." He says. " You will stay at a hotel for now until we can get you all situated here. Everything is free of charge. Your flight back home leaves first thing in the morning. I booked a hotel for you to stay at tonight,"
"Ok. Thank you Simon." I stood up and shook his hand. I walked out the room and to the limo.
"How did you send it to One Direction's manager!?" Kirsty whispered to me.
"It's a long story. I will tell you later." I said.
I can't believe Harry would do this to me. Now I have to rush my life in order to prepare for all of this. And he lied to me. I don't even want to talk to him ever again. How could a friend lie to me? Why wouldn't he tell me. I hope I never see him again.
