"Do you two have have any idea how bad this could have been for the show's reputation? Just be glad that the cameras didn't film any of this."
I groaned internally. Terry had been scolding us for the past half an hour, telling us how disrespectful it was to sneak off during the challenge. She then told us how lucky we were to be here, out of the thousand and thousands of fans who submitted their forms. I began to zone out somewhere around the word "sneak off". Aiden was fiddling with her thumbs next to me. Even though this was technically her fault, I didn't want her to take the blame.
Just shows what a selfless person I am.
When in the holy world of flapjacks did I turn selfless?
"Yes, Terry." "We are very sorry Terry." "It won't happen again Terry." Were my responses. We had tried to explain the situation to her, but one glare from her shut us up.
And on top of that, she was frowning. I never thought she was able to do anything other than smile.
"Well, now, it better not happen again. The boys are in the living room, then comes the dinner and interviews, and we announce who won the two challenges. Now go." Terry said and shooed us out of her office. Yes, she had an office. In the house.
Aiden and I silently got up. As soon as we were out of the office, she turned to me with a wicked grin on her face.
"What?" I said, noticing the expression on her face. Her grin got even wider. "I've got an idea."
I groaned audibly. "No, please, not another one of your 'ideas'! The last time you had an idea made us get lost and then scolded by Terry!"
"Well, fair point, but this time, I've got an actual, proper idea. Okay, so it's not exactly an idea, it goes more along the lines of a prank." She said. I gave her a do-you-seriously-want-us-to-get-into-even-more-trouble-and-get-kicked-off-this-show look. She ignored me, instead giving me puppy dog eyes.
NO AIDEN NO, DON'T-
"Fine." I heard myself saying and she smiled evilly, before dragging us to our room.
"Is the bucket in place?" Aiden whispered to me. I nodded, pointing at the bucket which was filled with ice-cold water and was conveniently placed on top of the door. "And the feathers and powder?" She asked. I nodded once more.
The next person to walk out of the door would get a serious surprise. Because not only would the freezing water be dropped on their heads, but feathers and powder would be thrown on them, immediately sticking on the person because of their wet body.
I giggled. "Shhh! Someone's coming!" Aiden said and clamped a hand over my mouth. And sure enough, the doorknob was turning. We watched in anticipation, with me secretly hoping it was one of the Fakes.
It all happened so fast. The door opened, the person stepped out, the water fell on them, and the powder and feathers were immediately flung on them, clinging like plastic wrap.
I couldn't help my laughter. "BWAHAHA!"
Because right then, the person who had just walked out looked over at the source of where the laughter had come from, and saw Aiden and I crouching in our not-so-good-hiding-spot-anymore. Said person wiped some of the powdery feathers off of their face, and it was then that I saw who it was.
Harry. Freaking. Styles.
My day just keeps on getting better and better, doesn't it?
Why, oh why did I do this?
Kill. Me. Now.
