I stood and watched the coffin be placed in the ground as a tear escaped my eye. I then felt the comfort of Liam's hand on my shoulder as we said our last goodbyes to Simon. It wasn't fair... everything was falling into place! Simon was going to help produce our first album and I'd finally found lads I can trust and a place where I belong. But I wasn't thinking of the album... I was thinking of the horror this must be for Simon's wife, Lauren, who even worse was expecting. He was too young... the car crash should've never happened.
After the viewing was over me and the lads made our way over to Lauren to offer her comfort for her great loss.
"We're so sorry for your loss" I say as the boys chime in saying similar things as me.
As she wipes away a tear, she responds "Thank you"
2 Days Later
I woke up to the smell of pancakes, oh how I love my mother. I walk downstairs to find a letter for me on the breakfast table. I rip open the envelope and was horrified to what I read: "Due to the loss of Simon Cowell, his wife Lauren, will be the new owner for SYCO records. Lauren would like to inform you that One Direction will not be producing an album and is not interested in any further involvement. Signed: Director of SYCO records."
Within an hour all the boys had met up at Harry's ready to go to Lauren's house. "What is that witch's problem!"
"Harry calm down, it's probably a misunderstanding. Lauren has been to many of our rehearsals and has had nothing but positive things to say" Liam says... god how is he so mature! He's like 16!
At Lauren's (Simon's old house) House
The boys and I arrive and are brought in by Lauren's housekeeper. Lauren is sitting at a desk with a coffee mug and a huge stack of papers along with a pen. I clear my throat and she looks up surprised to see us. "Oh boys! Nice to see you, what can I do for you?" Really?! Well how about we start with our record label?!
"Um I think there's been a misunderstanding with the letters we've been sent. It says here that you don't want to sign us or engage in any other involvement" Liam shows her the letter.
"Oh... no well that's no misunderstanding.. I'm not signing you to my record label."
"And why not?!" Harry raises his voice.
"Boys, boys, boys... As you can see I've got loads of paper work to do" Pointing at the stack of paper. "So I'm only going to say this once. We all know that Simon's keen eye for talent is what made him so successful. Of all the years he's been finding talent his only mistake was signing with you."
With that we were ushered out of the house and still in shock... who knew she was such a witch.
