11. Chapter 11

Mia's POV

It's nearly supper time before I finally get to take my bath and head for the kitchen. I'm starving. Liv's sitting at the kitchen table with her back to the door, reading a book. "Hey!" I say, she looks up from her book and flashes me a smile, "Whatcha readin'?", I ask.

"Well, it's not the same '50 Shades of Grey' book that you're apparently reading", she answers still smiling. I giggle as I put 2 pop tarts in the toaster. I grab 2 large cups and some juice out of the refridgerator.

"Because I'm in such a great mood, I'm going to just ignore that comment" as I set everything down on the table. I pull out the chair directly opposite from her. "Remember that little song we used to sing with the cups? Think we can still do it? " I ask her smiling.

"I don't know", as she shrugs her shoulders and gets back to her book. I reach across the table and grab her book. "Give that back!" she shouts.

"Try it with me once, and then I'll give it back" I smile.

"Why?!" she asks, clearly not in the mood.

"For FUN!". She rolls her eyes at me and grabs a cup. "You're a real pain in my ass! I'll start.", she says. I smile as she starts banging the beat out on her cup. I look up and see the guys including Uncle Sime, all gathered behind her by the entrance to the kitchen. Niall shoots me a look and puts his finger to his lips. I'm quiet as I pick up her beat. She starts singing...

The Cup Song - Pitch Perfect Soundtrack

I got my ticket for the long way round

Two bottles of whiskey for the way

And I sure would like some sweet company

And I'm leaving tomorrow, what'dya say

When I'm gone, when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my hair

You're gonna miss me everywhere, oh

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

"My turn." I say

I got my ticket for the long way round

The one with the prettiest of views

It's got mountains

It's got river's

It's got sights to give you shivers

But it sure would be prettier with you

When I'm gone, when I'm gone.

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my walk

You're gonna miss me by my talk, oh

You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

"There, now give me back my damn book!" she says, glaring at me.

"Sure Liv, hi boys. Oh hi again Mr. Cowell", I say smiling, as I get up to give him a hug.

"Hello again girls. That was pretty impressive. This is the second time I've heard you both sing and I have to say, I would love to sign you both to my record label. You both have terrific voices. Are you interested in persuing a music career, because I think you definitely would be successful. I could help you." he says.

Liv is just glaring at me, then I see her mouth the word "Bitch!" to me. I laugh.

Niall's POV

Uncle Sime just arrived, he needs to talk to the boys and I about some promotional stuff. As we enter the kitchen we see the girls seated at the table, Liv's back is to us. She's banging out a beat using her hand, the table and a cup. Uncle Sime stops us from going any further and puts a finger to his lips. Just then Mia looks up and sees us standing there. I smile and put my finger to my mouth. She nods and pretends we're not there. She picks up on Liv's beat, using the cup in front of her. Liv starts singing first. She has such a beautiful voice. When they're all done. I see Mia smile as she gets up and says "Hi" to us all. Liv looks pissed. I don't know why she doesn't like people to hear her sing, she's fantastic, they both are. As uncle Sime is talking to them about a possible music career, I can't help but notice Liv seems uncomfortable. She stands as if to leave, I sit in her chair and pull her on down so that she's sitting on my lap.

She turns her head towards my ear and whispers "Please let me go, Niall".

I wrap my arms around her waist, "Just listen to what he has to say, please", I whisper back.

"Have either of you written any songs?", Uncle Sime asks.

"No not really", Mia reply's. Liv is quiet and shakes her head.

"That's ok, I can get you songs and we can lay some tracks, then, start you off with some small gigs here and there. Maybe when the boys here start their new tour next year, you'll have enough to open for them. We can start as soon as your ready", he says. I see Zayn hug Mia. Everyone is smiling.

Liv breaks free of my arms "Excuse me, sorry" she says, and walks out of the kitchen without saying another word.

"I'm just going to go check on her, I'll be right back." I say, as I get up from the table.

"I'll come with you Niall" I hear Mia say.

I knock on the bedroom door and open it. Mia and I walk in. Liv is pacing back and forth, she looks pissed. I don't think I've ever seen her truly pissed before.

"Why'd you do that?" she yells at Mia.

"Do what?" she asks, innocently.

"Don't play dumb with me, you knew that they were listening.", Liv snaps.

"So what?", Mia snaps back.

"You know I don't want people to hear..."

Mia cuts her off mid sentence, "and why is that exactly, Liv. You've never actually told me. It's not because you're horrible because you have an amazing voice. Its not that you're ugly, because you're not. So, explain it to me!" Mia's shouting now.

Zayn walks into the room, "Everything ok in here?" he asks.

"Mia can I talk to Liv alone for a minute please?", I ask.

"No Niall, we're having a conversation and I want an answer!", Mia shouts.

Zayn takes Mia's hand, "C'mon Amelia", he gives her a tug "let's go, please love." I close the door after they're gone.

"What's going on, love" I ask.

"Don't 'love' me. I'm not happy with you either!" she snaps.

"Why? What did I do?" I ask. "You wouldn't let me go! You made me sit there!"

"Olivia love, I'm confused. What's this all about? Tell me the truth. The way you're acting right now, it's not you", I say.

Her face softens, as I talk to her. She stops pacing and sits on the floor, wrapping her arms around her kness. "Mia was always the one who needed attention when we were growing up. I was happy to just fade into the background. Mia had lots of friends, I only had 2. Niall, I'm not 'superstar' material. I mean, look what happened in Toronto. I'm not comfortable with it and the only reason I'm still here right now, is..." she stops herself.

"Is?" I urge.

"Is YOU. I don't care about being famous, I don't care about record deals, or fans, or money, or what Simon can do for us. I just care about you. I'm falling in love with you Niall", she says, tears in her eyes.

"I'm in love with you too, but I told you that already", I say, smiling, pressing my lips to hers. "But I think the real reason you're hesitating is that you're scared. I think you're scared that what happened in Toronto will happen again if you put yourself out there. You're a very talented person Liv, don't let anyone rob you of that", I say, as I pull her hand up to my mouth and kiss it.

"I have to go downstairs and finish my meeting with Simon and the lads. It should only take an hour or so, ok? I'll be back soon and then we'll talk more", he says.

Liv's POV

I watch as Niall leaves and pulls the door closed behind him. I know deep down he's right. I am scared. Celebrities have it rough, I've seen what he has to go through just to walk through an airport. It's dangerous. Is that the kind of life I want. I've always pictured myself getting married, having children and teaching. Now I suddenly have a choice, and I don't know what to do. Mia doesn't understand, she just wants to jump right in. I can't do's not me. I get up and walk back down to the kitchen.

"I'm sorry to interrupt, Simon. Can I think about this over the summer or do you need an answer right now? Because if you will be 'no', for me anyway", I say. I can see him sit back in chair and look at me for a second before speaking.

"Ok, you have until the end of August and then I need your decision, ok?" he says and I smile, and head back up to my room.

It's going on 8 pm, and the boys are still downstairs with Simon. I'm lying on my bed still reading my book, but I'm starting to get bored now. There's a knock on my door, "Yeah?!," I call, Mia pokes her head in.

"Can I come in?", she asks.

"Can I stop you?" I say, still somewhat pissed.

"I'm sorry about earlier", I hear her say, which is huge in itself because Mia rarely ever apologizes, especially to me. "I shouldn't have tricked you and I shouldn't have yelled at you either", she says.

"Wow, Zayn is really having a positive affect on you, I think that's the first time you've ever said you were sorry to me about something", I say as she sits down on the edge of my bed.

"Can you please at least try to explain to me, why you're hesitating", she asks.

I put my book down, look at her and let out a sigh, "Don't you find all 'of this' intimidating? What if we do this Amelia, and then we can't go back. What if, what happened in Toronto happens again? I mean, eventually we'd get recognized everywhere we'd go, and the more a person is exposed, the greater the chance of something happening. Does that make sense?", I ask.

"I hear what you're saying Liv, but we can't 'not' do things just because something bad 'might' happen", she says.

"I know that. Look can you give me some time to think about it. Simon said I didn't have to give him my answer until the end of August. Can we just enjoy our summer for now, please?, Oh, and no more tricking me, from now on, if you want me to sing with you, just ask and I'll really try not to say 'no', ok?", I say.

"Deal!" she answers, before getting up giving me a hug and walking back out the door. I fall asleep shortly afterwards still waiting for Niall.
