17. Chapter 17||
A/N: okay, I had promise to update by the end of this week, but that didn't happen. This time I do promise. I want to finish this by the end of the year so I can focus on other books I'm trying to finish also.
Well, that's all I wanted to say. See ya in the next chapter! :P
"Three pomegranate tea's for Nail?" I breathe out a puff of air as I heard my named being called incorrectly.
"That would be me." I walk over to the counter grabbing the cup holder with the drinks.
"Alright, and here you go!" She says cheerfully. "Oh, by the way, I know who you are, but I don't think you want to be bombarded by those group of girls over there." She winks at me pointing to her side. I glance over to see a group of girls with One Direction t-shirts huddled in the corner of the shop.
"I appreciate it." I nod thanking her.
"Have a nice day." She smiles waving.
I walk out to my car getting in. After settling down, I take off down the city filled with traffic. Ugh. Not again. I turn into another street quickly arriving at the back of the record building. Stepping out of the car with the drinks, I head to the back door walking in to see security.
"Hello Niall." One of them greets me as they open the door.
"Simon is in the recording booth with your friends."
"Thanks." I nod at him. I walk down the hall reaching the recording booth. I push the door open with my foot walking in to see Meghan and Lucas in the booth, while Simon was in the controlling room.
"Hey Simon." I whisepr nudging him. He turns to me smiling.
"What are you doing here?" He asks.
"Just wanted to stop by and bring Meghan and Lucas a drink to energize."
"I think they'd appreciate it." He smiles patting my back. He turns on the mic speaking into it, "I think it's time for a little break."
"But we've only been writing for the past two-" Meghan stares dead straight at me. "Niall!" She takes her headphones off walking out of the booth towards me.
"Just thought I could bring a little energy boost for you guys." I smile.
"Thank you so much dude!" She side hugs me. She releases her grip on me, calling Lucas over. "Lucas, this is Niall. Niall, this is Lucas."
"Hey!" He smiles as I receive his hand.
"Well, I have a meeting with someone soon so I'll be back to check up on you guys later." Simon waves back to us walking out.
"Oh, I bought you a pomegranate tea." I hand Meghan one as she gladly receives it. "I don't know if you like tea Lucas, but I just bought it anyways."
"Thanks Niall, but you didn't have to."
"It's fine. My treat." I hand him a drink along with a straw. I grab mine walking inside the booth. "So how's the progress?" I ask, taking a seat on a stool.
It's been about two weeks since Meghan and Lucas have been writing a song. I haven't come by to see how she's doing because of my schedule. It's also my first time meeting Lucas and he already seemed like a chill guy.
"It's good so far. We have the music already. We just need the lyrics, but we're doing pretty well with the lyrics so far." She walks in leaning against a wall.
"Would you like to hear what we have?" Lucas walks in sipping his drink.
"Sure." He walks into the controlling station again flipping some switches on.
Wake me up is this a dream
My clouded vision helps me forge my memory
Change the wheel and cut this scene
Re-write reality to make me feel complete-
"That's what we've got so far." Meghan shrugs.
"Sounds great! What does Simon think of it?"
"He says it's swell. I hope he likes it after we finish it." She bites her bottom lip crossing her fingers.
"He'll like it. Trust me." I smile.
"Thanks Niall." She walks over to the stool across from me sitting down.
"Well, I should get going now. The others didn't know I came."
"Oh yes we do." I look back to see Louis and Zayn at the doorway.
"Oh great." I mutter under my breath.
"Hey Meghan, what's going on?" Louis walks pass me towards her.
"Uh, just making some music," she replies.
"Ah, nice! Wait, shouldn't you be recording over at your managements?" He questions.
"Since you guys are going to find out sooner or later, I'll just tell you now."
"Tell us what?" Zayn pokes his head in.
"That I want to get into the music business now. I want to switch over with Simon, so I just have to write a song with Lucas here to give him a sample."
"Why so sudden?" Louis raises an eyebrow.
Meghan glances over at me giving me a look. I clear my throat walking over to Louis. "Meghan and Lucas need to continue with their music. It was nice of you guys to stop by." I start to push them out of the booth.
"Hi, I'm Louis." Louis gets out of my grip greeting Lucas.
"Hi, I'm Lucas." He shakes hands with him.
"Are you Meghan's boyfriend?" My eyes widen at Louis' words. I never thought about that. What if Lucas had a thing for Meghan, or Meghan had a thing for him? I'll be crushed.
"Oh no! We're just friends." Lucas shakes his head.
"Yeah, just friends." Meghan laughs. Relief comes over me. Phew!
"So why are you here? Is it because you're trying to get more famous? Is it because you're trying to get help from Niall, or because you like him?" Meghan's cheeks redden as she looked towards me. She turns around in her stool grabbing a paper on a table near her. I step harshly on Louis' foot making him yelp.
"You alright there, Louis?" She turns back to us with the paper in her hands.
"Mhm. I'm fine." Louis glares over at me. I'm totally getting it later.
