I groan as I hear Isabelle yelling. I open my eyes abruptly and get out of my bed. I quickly rush to her side and watch her hang up the phone.
"What happened?" I ask. She throws her phone on her bed and looks at me.
"I just lost my job! Apparently my company got bankrupt! I'm done!" She said in disbelief and anger. What in the world was going on?
"I.. I'm not sure how to say this, but the same thing happened to me." I said.
"Wait, what do you mean?" She asked shock evident on her face.
"I mean, I didn't get dropped but they said I have this whole week off and if they can't fix whatever's going on everyone's getting fired." I said. As Isabelle opened her mouth to speak my phone began to ring from my room. I left her room and ran to mine picking up my phone.
"Eleanor?" I ask.
"Clara, good morning. I'm coming over for the day. The boys have an interview to attend to." She said.
"Of course, we'll be waiting!" I said happily and we hung up. I turned around to see Isabelle. Her expression had softened. She looked upset.
"What will we do?" She asked.
"Not much we can do, other than start looking for other jobs." I said as a matter of fact. She sighed and we walked to the kitchen for breakfast.
Hours passed and Eleanor had arrived. We all sat in the living room.
"Should we go out for some lunch?" Eleanor suggested.
"I think that's a good idea." I replied.
"Okay, go and get ready then!" She smiled at Isabelle and I. I walked into my room and pulled out my light denim button up dress and my fairy socks, with all white converses. I let my hair down and put in salt spray making it beach wavy. I put a slight bit of make up on with concealer, mascara and coral lips. I grabbed my cream shoulder bag and made sure everything I needed was inside. I walked back into the living room to see Eleanor on the phone.
"Sure... Sounds great.. We'll see you guys then. Okay... I love you too." And she hung up. She turned and looked at me with a big smile. "You look great!" She said happily. I wasn't feeling so great today. Isabelle lost her job, I was on the verge of loosing my job and I felt like the day was going to get worse. "What's wrong?" She asked. I sighed and explained everything that happened.
"Why didn't you tell me straight away?" She asked.
"There wasn't really enough time. Everything happened so quickly." I replied. She sighed sadly.
"Don't worry. I can pull some string if you like? I'll talk to Louis, I'm sure he'll know what to do. Or Liam. Liam's the smartest, we'll ask him!" She suggested. I shook my head in protest.
"Don't please. Don't tell any of them. Eleanor promise me." I pleaded. She sighed again.
"Fine. I promise." And then Isabelle walked out into the living room. "By the way, Louis said to be back here by 8 they're going to bring pizza and we're all going to hang out." She smiled. I nodded with a smile and we all walked outside.
We all just finished eating at a cute little restaurant.
"That was amazing." Isabelle said. We all sat for an extra half an hour sipping on ice tea and cooling down. It was pretty hot. "Let's walk around." Isabelle said. We all stood up and left after we paid our bill. We were at the end of the street and a group of girls, about 15 of them, ran up to us.
"Eleanor! Eleanor! We love you so much! Please, please take a picture with us!!" One pleaded. Eleanor nodded and I took the picture. "You're dating Harry!" One said looking at me.
"Oh, no, no! We're just friends!" I replied.
"And you're dating Liam!" They say looking at Isabelle. "Can we have a photo with you two as well, please!" I looked at Isabelle and then we agreed. We got pictures with them and then headed our own way.
"Does that happen a lot?" I asked Eleanor. She giggled.
"Yes. It gets really bad some times. Like to an extent where Louis has security guards follow me around when I go out." She said. I sighed. I couldn't imagine how the boys felt. Must be scary.
Hours seemed to fly by today. I still had a sick feeling in my stomach that something bad was going to happen. But we were back at the apartment and it was almost 8. Maybe I was just over thinking things. Eleanor and Isabelle were inside her room on the laptop. I was in the kitchen drinking a cool glass of water. I shook off the feeling and smiled, trying to lift my spirits up. Just as I did there was a knock on the door. Harry. I thought, then frowned at myself. I went and opened the door. My mouth almost dropped to the floor when I saw Julie and Amanda. Our 'mothers'. Some mothers. I stepped outside and closed the door of my apartment.
"What the fuck are you two doing here?" I asked angry. Julie looked at me.
"Look at you. My daughter. So beautiful." She said. She was about my height. She had messy hair and dirty clothes with holes in them. She had long brown hair like I did. I felt so disgusted in myself.
"What do you two want? Money? Well, we don't have any. We're not working at the moment, so you can leave. And don't ever come here again." I said trying not to yell.
"Don't lie. We saw you and Isabelle on TV." What?
"What do you mean?" I asked surprised.
"You two are dating those famous singers from One Direction. Your boyfriends must be giving you a lot of money, so fucking give it to us!" She yelled and pulled out a knife. I couldn't care less if I was being honest. I wish she would hurt me badly enough. She'd go to jail and I'd be free of her. I heard Louis and Harry laughing loudly then Niall's voice. They were walking up the stairs.
"Come here." I said and walked down the hall and went into where the cleaners of the apartment kept their equipment. The store room.
