Chapter 45 (Instagram)
"Aw you look so adorable." My mom exclaimed as she began to take picture of me in my stupid Halloween costume. I glared down to my feet finding them bare.
"Mom I still don't get why I have to wear this." I sighed as I looked at myself in the mirror. I look hilarious right now, I should show Sele- I mean.... I feel so incomplete right now. My mom gave me a small smile.
"Honey, I know you miss Selena but Can't you just be happy for one day. It's Halloween. The day that you can only dress up silly, or even scary." She explained. I gasped for air as I gestured at the costume she made me wear.
"But in- In This- this...... I'm wearing a Spider Man Costume right now." I whine. I sat on the corner on my bed and sighed.
"I know but it makes you look younger." My mom comforted me. I removed my spider man mask and smiled at her.
"But I'm 16 years old now. I know how to dress up now." I said as he rubbed her had in my back.
"Ok darling. I knew this would happen so I have your back up costume in your closet. It was suppose to kept a surprise but I can see right now you don't adore Spider Man anymore. You use to love him so much back then." She said as she walked over to the door.
"Yeah but that was when he was popular. Now he isn't anymore." I whispered.
"Ok. Happy Halloween Harry." She smiled as she walked out the door without my response.
"Happy Halloween mom." I whispered to myself.
Happy Halloween Selena....
I got up from the bed and went over to my closet, as I opened it up. My mom had picked a cowboy costume for me. Although I remember a long time ago dressing up like this for Halloween when I was 10 years old, I never regreted wearing kids stuff but since Selena isn't here. Nobody is going to tease me so I guess I'm ok with this. I began stripping down my clothes and wore the cowboy costume. The only thing that I was missing was some pistols but that's alright. As I checked myself in the mirror, I heard the doorbell rang.
"Harry, can you get that for me please. Oh and bring the candy basket. Thanks." My mom yelled from the kitchen. I cracked my knuckles as I walked over to the door, I grabbed the candy basket and placed my hand on the knob. Once I opened the door, I was surprised.
"Happy Halloween Hazza!!"
I didn't like where this party was leading too, but all I know is that this party was going to be a based on Halloween. I really wonder what Harry is doing right now. He probably be doing the same thing as I or being guilty and spend Halloween alone with Aunt Anne without me. I do miss home really badly although being here in Los Angeles is fun I guess.
"Selena over here." Justin shouted as he gestured to come over. I was leaning on his car right now, should I go or not. Just making one move would change everything and I didn't want to make that same mistake again. I made my decision as I walked over to Justin. He placed a hand on my back and leaded me in the house. The first thing I saw was spider webs, people dancing, sweaty bodies, slutty costumes, alcohol and cigarettes. Just like any party, this was a party for hormone teenagers and wild party animals. Somebody must have turned on the smoke machine to high cause its getting kinda sweaty in here, and not to mention hard to breathe.
'Where should I put the cookies?" Demi asked Justin politely. I smiled at Demi for being strong around Justin.
"Just right around the corner. There should be a table that you could place them on." Justin answered. Demi gave me eye contact again telling to take care, I responded by giving her a light smile. As I watched Demi walk away, I heard someone call out Justin's name.
"Hey Justin!" I turned around, finding my eyes lay on a boy who has a bottle of beer in his hand. He appeared to be wearing a Angel costume.
"Hey Chaz!" Justin greeted back as Justin went over and gave him a bro hug. So his name is Chaz. Once they pulled away, Chaz looked amused when he glanced at me.
"So this is the cowgirl you mentioned. Your right, she is cute." He slurred his words. I could feel his breath brush my cheek. The alcohol poisoning me as he stepped closer to me. I blushed although I didn't mean to.
"Chaz...." Justin warned. Stopping him as he laid a hand on his chest. Chaz looked mad but confused at the same time.
"What? I just want to have fun you know. This party is suppose to be the party of the month." He said drunk. He was defiantly drunk and I actually want no part of him. Angel or not, I'm not hooking up with him. Plus I have a boyfrie-..... never mind.
"Your drunk Chaz." Justin reminded him.
"I'm an angel. Angels don't get drunk and hipsters don't go being assholes." He spat. I was afraid where this conversation was going until Justin grabbed my wrist lightly but in force, as if he didn't want me taken away from him.
"Lets go Selena." He said as he dragged me to the corner where Demi was.
"Hey! Later were having a game of truth or dare. Come join!" Chaz yelled as he disappeared.
"Happy Halloween Hazza!" I heard a boy cheer out. He had a costume of a extreme rock star, white face paint on his face and a enormous black star on his right eyes. He had his arms wide open and his tongue stuck out completely. I gave him a confused look as I look at the others, until I remembered that the costume this guy was wearing was from the band Kiss.
"Kiss!" I yelled out with a smile as I ran in for a hug. To my surprise, the boy gave me a kiss on the cheek.
"Ugh." I said as I wiped his white lip stain of my cheek.
"Sorry. You said kiss!" He exclaimed. Ok, from the voice of him, I know that this person is Louis.
"I mean't Kiss. You are dressed up as kiss from the band." I explained as I went back inside to grab the candy basket again. The other boys stood outside holding their baskets out for me to put candy in like immature.
"Trick or Treat." The other one said bored and annoyed in a batman costume. He stuck out his basket as I just stared at it.
"Liam?" I said as the batman guy nodded his head. I smiled at his costume, and I always thought that this man was serious and mature. I went into my basket and grabbed a handful of mini chocolate bars and dispose them into Liam's basket.
"Thanks." He praise me. I went over to a boy who looked like he had the same costume as Louis. I stared at him with a confused look. That was when he noticed me staring and pointed at Louis in a gloomy way.
"Louis stole my idea." He said. The low rich tone was all I heard that sounded so familiar. Zayn. I went in my basket and grabbed another handful for Zayn and threw it into his basket. Luckily, he caught it. No candies going into waste today.
"Me!" I heard a Irish accent ring. I peered over Liam's shoulder and found Niall in a humpy dumpy suit. Man he is bloated. I smirked.
"Sorry Niall but I can't give you any candy. You'll explode." I said sarcastically. Louis began to laugh as I dug into my candy basket and handed him a large chocolate bar called Areo.
"Hey! What about me?" Louis shouted in a expression. I laughed as I gave him a sad look.
"Sorry but were out of candy, please come again." I said as I was about to close the door, but I felt a force trying to open it again. It was Louis for goodness sake.
"I will never take no for an answer when it comes to candy." Louis shouted as he pushed the door harder. I tried to pry the door close as I let go of the candy basket, letting some treats fall and roll down the floor.
"Honey, who's at the door?" My mom yelled from the kitchen, I began to smell cookies from the oven. The cookies smell so good. Nothing like mom's homemade cookies.
"Harry..." Louis said as he pushed the door open one more time. I stumbled forward as Louis went to the ground and carefully picked up the candy that had rolled out of the basket off the floor. Man and Louis is the oldest.
"It's just some of my friends." I responded back.
"Louis!" Liam said annoyed. Louis looked up to him with a chocolate bar in his mouth. I laughed at his messy face."
"What?" He mumbled because of the chocolate in his mouth. Liam went over to Louis and placed his hands on his hips, looking very upset in my opinion. It looked like Liam was going to give Louis a time out or ground him for his inappropriate behavior.
"Pass me a Milky-way." Liam said sternly. Ugh what? Louis passed the milky-way bar (the same thing as Mars but in US version) over to Liam.
"I thought you were going to burst." Niall chuckled. Louis stood up from the floor.
"Well, chocolate calms me down." Liam confessed. Really?
"I'll keep that in mind then....." I said with a smirk. I walked over to the door and closed it shut.
"I guess there won't be anymore candy for tonight." I sighed as I picked up the candy wrappers and the empty basket from the floor.
"Sorry." I heard Louis whisper. The sound of his voice sounded as if he was really was sorry. I nodded at him without eye contact.
"Hey nice costume." Zayn smirked. I looked down at my cowboy boots.
"Thanks." I said with a grin on my face. I walked over to my couch and laid on it as I took the T.V remote and turned the television on. Niall sat on the sofa beside me, Liam leaned on the side of the wall, Louis went onto his phone, and Zayn went to the washroom.
"So this is how your going to spend this years Halloween." He pondered. I nodded with a small smile as I flipped the channel. I came upon a commercial about the XFactor. It was One Direction's 6th performance and I was feeling a bit better then our first performance. 5 weeks before the finals are left and it was my goal, our goal to be in that stage. To prove the audience that we are a better then the other single contestants, to try to gain many votes as we can.
But that was the not the only challenge. What if we were ranked last? I know Simon has faith in us, and he would make sure that we would win but I just feel as if that's what's going to help us win. Is it the voice, song, strategy, my handsome cute looks. What is there.
"Hey Hazza!" Louis yelled. I looked over to him with a playful annoyed way.
"Why do you always call me that?" I sighed.
"What? I can't call you that?"
"No that's not what I meant I mea- never mind. What do you need?" I asked. Louis got off his chair and went over to me.
"Niall move." Louis said as she squish between Niall and I. Zayn laughed as Louis began to move his butt to make some space. He went over to his phone and began to type something down. I couldn't see what he was doing. The screen was far from my face.
"Look at what I found." Louis said amused. He took his phone and made the screen visible for me to see. It was on Instagram for some reason.
"You have Instagram?" I said loudly amused. From the corner of my eye, Liam's head shot up.
"You have Instagram?." He asked concern.
"Wait Louis has Instagram?" Niall Asked. Ok nobody know that Louis has Instagram? Weird.
"Yeah I do." Louis said putting his phone down. I couldn't see the screen of the iPhone anymore. I frowned.
"How many Followers?" Niall said happily as if he thinks that Louis having Instagram is a joke.
"14K." He stated. What?
"What!" Zayn yelled as he went over to Louis, even Niall and Liam.
"Yup. Wait that is not what I needed to do. Harry. Look at this." Louis said calmly. He brought his phone up again so I could see it, and it was still on the home of Instagram. There was a picture of a dog with a Superman mask on. To me, I find it a bit hilarious but not that much.
"That's what you wanted to show me?" I said plainly. Louis nodded as he glanced at the screen. I became confused when he looked shocked.
"Wait that's not the one." he said as he began to scroll down the screen. I examined his face, his face really focused. What is this photo that he wanted to show me, its making him really serious.
"Here." he quickly said as he looked at me. I took a deep breath and turned my head to the screen. My heart rate began to beep faster as I focused on the photo in front of me. The photo looks like it was taken at night at a place with many lights. There were three people in the picture. Two girls and one boy. The boy looked like he was having fun, the boy I wouldn't let my eyes set on. The other two girls look happy, but this one particular girl was what made my heart clench and my tears set to fall. She looked drunk by the look on her face, very drunk. She held a bottle of beer in her hand and that's when I realized something.
This girl has never drank alcohol before.
