3. Auditions

Previously: We casually slip in front of them, while everyone's busy watching the fight, and a couple of security guards pull them apart. We pretend to be interestingly watching, as the people around us are, so we look like we've been here all along. When the fight is solved or whatever, everyone turns back to continue with what they were doing before the fight broke out. I high-five my Aunt.

"Brilliant! We should be actors!" I cheer. She grins.

"See? Now will you listen to me next time?" She brags. I roll my eyes with a chuckle. From the spot we managed to grab, we only have about ten people in front of us.

Chapter 2: Auditions

- Nashton's POV -


"Do I look okay? Is my hair messed up?" I ask quickly to Aunt Laura. I'm about to go onto stage. There's one person on already, then a girl that's going to go on next, then there's me. And I am nervous as Hell. Also panicking slightly.

"Oh hush up. You look gorgeous, as always. Just like your father." She smiles sadly as she adjusts my hair.

The girl who was just on runs past me crying. I hadn't even realized that she had gone up there. I gulp loudly and hear a deep British voice say, "We're ready for the next." I knew it was Simon's and swallowed down my raging nerves.

I took one final deep breath and got into the attitude and confidence I knew I needed to have.

I took one slow step but then started the long strut to the center of the stage, and the crowd cheers when they see me. I'm not sure why, though. I'm just... me. I get to the center and stand on the taped X on the floor and face the judges. I look up and my eyes widen a bit. Demi Lovato and Britney Spears are judges?!

I really need to be more organized. I knew Simon is a judge, same with L.A. But I didn't expect Demi and Britney, that's for sure.

"Hello." I say into the microphone with a small smile. My eyes scan the crowd, and my nervousness grows.

"Hi sweetheart. What's your name?" Simon says into the microphone to me.

"Nashton Keating." He nods, and asks another question.

"How old are you?" 

"I am currently 18 years old." I answer back. There were a few cheers in the crowd, and I chuckle slightly.

"Who are your inspirations?" Britney asks next.

I think about my answer for a bit. Should I tell them my true answer? I don't want them to think I'm trying to get pity so I can breeze through the competition, because I'm not.

"My father, because he wanted me to do what makes me happy in life, and I am. Singing in front of people makes me happy, especially when those people enjoy it." I say softly, but the mic projects it to make it understandable.

"Okay. And Nashton, what song will you be singing?" L.A asks.

"I will be singing 'You Found Me' by The Fray." I say. Cheers echo throughout the building at the mention of the song.

"Okay, start when your ready." Demi said. The crowd quieted down, and I nod. I take a deep breath as the music started, and I sing the first line of the song.

I found God on the corner of 1st and Amistad
Where the West was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I said, "Where've you been?" He said, "Ask anything."

Where were you, when everything was falling apart.
All my days were spent by the telephone that never rang
And all I needed was a call that never came
To the corner of 1st and Amistad

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.


I glance over at the judges who were upright in their chairs and Reed has his eyes closed and was trying to feel the music. I got a boost of confidence when Simon made eye contact with me and I don't know why, but I felt something as he smiled at me in wonder. Hope, maybe?

But in the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I'm not and who I wanna to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.

The early morning, the city breaks
And I've been calling for years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never sent me no letters
You got some kind of nerve taking all I want

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, Where were you? Where were you?

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.

Why'd you have to wait, to find me, to find me?


I finish and on a sweet, soft note and I try to get my breath back a bit. The whole audience is silent but within a couple seconds, the crowd roars to life. It feels so unreal; it feels like my face is going to split in two, I am grinning so wide. The judges, even Simon, are on their feet applauding. He is smiling and his eyes are a bit red. I mouth the words, "Thank You." to him and he nods, flashing me a huge smile. I thought my heart would explode in sheer happiness and relief. The judges sit back down, and so does the crowd. They quiet down, and Demi wipes her eyes a bit.

"I don't know what to say." Demi chuckles.

"I do. And your voice is the best I have heard in a long time. You truly have an amazing gift there." L.A says. I grin. I certainly did not expect that comment. I was expecting something more on the lines of 'You suck.' or 'You call that talent? That's rubbish!' or something. "My vote is yes." 

"Yes. Anyone would be crazy to say no." Britney says, confidence in her voice.

"Most definitely yes!" Demi exclaims, nodding her head quickly.

Everyone turns to Simon, suspense filling the air. My breathing hitches in my throat. After a couple seconds of suspense, he says one word that changes my life. 

"Yes."
