As I looked through my bag, I found the letter that is the reason as to why I am here on this plane right now. The letter from Mark who is 5 Seconds Of Summer's manager. He just wanted to say thanks for my letter to the boys blah, blah, blah. As I read over the letter, the seat I was in, started moving behind me.
"Your Becca Payne?" A voice I now recognised asked me, causing me to jump a little. My eyes grew wide as I turned around to be face to face with Mark and The 5SOS boys themselves. I nodded my head and opened my mouth to speak but the only sounds that came out of my mouth were little gasps and squeaks. The boys laughed a little as Michael and Luke came to sit either side of me. As they sat down, all I could do was stare wide eyed at them with my mouth hanging open in a "O" formation.
"You know its rude to stare right?" Luke chuckled looking me dead in they eyes. I nodded and looked down as my cheeks flushed a cherry red. As I continued looking down at my hands, the boys started shuffling in their seats. When I looked up to apologise, I nearly had a heart attack because as soon as I lifted my head, I nearly kissed Ashton because he was so close to my face!
"Shit! I'm really sorry Ashton!" I said quickly. He flushed red just like I had done but started smirking instead.
"It's fine babe, no biggie." He said with a shrug. I smiled at him but I was secretly doing the happy dance in my head. He called me babe... Oh, my goodness! I'm really going to have to try and control myself from now on.
I looked up at the other guy who was just watching everything that was going on. "Your Mark, right?"
"Yes I am. I never thought you would actually do this mind. That's why we came here to Wales looking for you actually," he said and paused before going on with what he was saying. " We wanted to see if you would take the offer. When we got to your house though, you weren't there." Mark explained, reading the letter that I had passed to him when he motioned for it.
"You all came here to Wales just to see if I would take this offer?" I asked surprised.
"Yeah, we did. Was that okay?" Calum asked. I nodded my head in response and he smiled back at me. Let's just say, this is going to be one hell of a plane ride!

"So, when I wrote for you guys to come to visit in Wales, how is it this has happened instead?" I quizzed.
"Because, we normally don't read fan-mail, but when Mark read yours, he then showed us and said there was something about your letter that seemed like something more than any other piece of fan-mail. Your story was really touching too. So we thought you would be the perfect person to be a personal assistant so you can get a touch of what it is like in the industry if you wish to take your music career further." Michael explained as the boys helped bring my bags into the room I would be staying in while sharing a house with the guys.
"Oh..." I said trailing off. Tears threatened to fall so I tried my best to hold them back, but failed badly.
"Becca, we're really sor-" Calum started.
"I-it's fine, just don't worry about me." I said talking to the floor.
"Right, um, well if you need us, we'll be in the garden." Ashton said slowly as I gave him a little nod to show I was listening. And with that, the boys left me to be.
I walked over to my suitcase to find a picture of my birth parents on top with the words 'Do us proud Becca! We will always love you princess. We will always be with you!' I held the photo close to my chest as I slid down the wall, full on crying as I remembered that awful night that I lost my birth mum and dad.
