"Luke! Come on we have to go!" yelled Calum loudly, looking for me.
"Luke, where are you hiding?" asked Michael loudly, a tone of sternness in his voice.
"I-in here.." I stammered quietly, peering over the edge of the couch.
"We're on in 2 minutes, are you alright?" asked Ashton gently, sitting down beside me.
"I'm ok.." I said quietly, standing up slowly.
We headed backstage and the nerves were beginning to get to me. My whole body was shaking and my heart was beating at a million miles an hour.
"Luke, are you alright?" asked Ashton for the second time today.
"Yeah, I'm alright.. Just really nervous.." I said quietly, trying to prepare myself.
We all headed onstage and my nerves instantly grew and I was terrified. The crowd was huge - it was probably the biggest crowd we'd seen yet.
"How's everyone doing tonight?" yelled Ashton from behind me.
The crowd screamed in reply and we started our first song: Beside You.
We got through our set and it came time to perform She Looks So Perfect. It all went perfectly until my solo at the bridge.
"She looks so perfect standing there, in my American apparel underwear. And I know now, that I'm so down. Your lipstick stain is a work of art, I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart. And I know now, that I'm so down" I sung timidly, my voice shaking.
We finished the song and left the stage and I was disappointed in myself.
"Luke, you look down, what's wrong?" asked Ashton gently, putting his hand on my shoulder.
"M-my solo.." I said in disappointment, looking at my feet.
"Hey, it's alright Lukey, it was fine.. You were just nervous is all.." said Michael with a smile.
"Yeah, it was great," said Ashton with a gentle smile.
"Y-you s-sure?" I said with a wide yawn, tiredness starting to kick in.
"Of course I'm sure.. We'd better head home, boys.." said Ashton with a small smile.
About 20 minutes later, we arrived at the hotel and Ashton and I headed our room and got ready for bed. I was feeling quite run down and I hoped that I could sleep it off and be ready for tomorrow's concert.
