{AN: Hello you wonderful people who have stumbled upon my story! This is my first story that I'm going to start writing! Hopefully it's not too bad. I've had this idea down forever and i'm just writing it now. Anyway, If you notice any 'carrot' refferances, I only used them because the story starts at the end of 2012, but I will gradually bring 2014 into the story, I promise! Okay! Enought words! Hope you enjoy and please vote/comment/fan <3

“Nialler! Look at this Tumblr post. It says ‘FACT: Harry likes… let’s just scribble out girls… who have brown hair and who have blue or green eyes, because he thinks they would look cute together! I have those features. See Niall? He’s just waiting for my never existing arrival.” A happy Louis exclaimed to his best friend Niall.

Niall just shook his head chuckling. “Ha, dream on Tommo. As awesome as it would be if my best friend was dating the sexy Harry Styles, we haven’t even been able to see them in the flesh yet, and it’s been two years already!” Niall responded with a sigh at the fact of not meeting them. Even though the band they always gush over, the one and only One Direction, lives in the same country and basically area as them, they never had the luck of finding them.

“Don’t need to keep on reminding me of that fact. But we have to see them sometime. It can’t be that impossible to just see them walking around our streets. I mean, all those girls have seemed to find them. Why can’t we?” Niall shrugged and continued to look through twitter. Louis huffed out a breath, rolling onto his back and looking up at the posters on his roof. Yes, he was that kind of fanboy with the poster covered walls and CD’s on replay.

The two teens were just having a chilled out weekend together. Scrolling through social media sites, google searching topless One Direction pictures and uploading to their not so popular instagram accounts is what they called an everyday routine for themselves. 

Louis looked over to Niall’s laptop screen. “Whose twitter are you stalking now?” He asked even though he already knew the answer he was going to get.

“By that look on your face you already know its Liam’s, but it’s not like you’re not checking Harry’s tweets that nobody understands twenty-four seven!” Louis just rolled his eyes at him, but it was true what he said.

Niall’s eyes widened as a new tweet from Liam popped up. “New tweet! Liam says..” Niall clicked on the tweet opening it up to read. “That the band is doing a quick show in a few hours! And it’s a free entry!” Niall exclaimed and had Louis jumping up at the news, ending in him accidentally bouncing Niall off the bed.

“Are you serious?! Where?” He snatched the laptop into his reach, looking all over the page to find the tweet.

Niall rubbed his head from hitting the floor, sitting back on the bed and swiping his laptop back. “Maybe I could tell you if you don’t push me off the bed.” He glared at the stripe wearing boy. Louis rolled his eyes in return.

“Just tell me already!” Louis rushed.

“Okay! Okay!” Niall scrolled back to the tweet and found it again. But then his smile turned into a frown. “It’s on the other side of town. We can’t make it there that fast.” The boys sighed together.

Then something prepped Niall up. “Hey, what’s the time?” Niall questioned.

“Um, it’s about three thirty seve- wait, we have to go pick up the CD!” Louis shouted, shutting his laptop and snatching up his wallet while grabbing his friend’s wrist on the way of scrambling out the door.

“Leggo!” Niall yelled, laughing along with Louis and they made their way by foot to the music store. Only because Niall accuses Louis of being a ridiculously slow driver.


The jumpy boys finally reached the store, racing through the front door and up to the register. Their breaths came out in short pants. The woman behind the counter gazed up from her computer and looked at the boys strangely before putting on a smile. “Hello boys. How can I help you?” The woman was around twenty-six, wearing her uniform and her blonde hair was covering her shoulders.

“Hi, I had a pre-order here for Louis Tomlinson.” Louis spoke with a kind smile, but he was still jumping up and down. And just so you know Louis is nineteen, soon to be twenty. It isn’t weird to be acting so jumpy and happy over a band at this age… is it?

“Ah, yes! I have it right here.” The woman whose nametag read Ashley, brought up the CD from under the desk. She took a quick look at it then raised an eyebrow up at the boys. “One Direction? Really?”

“Yep, is there something wrong with that?” Niall asked, noticing the girls face.

She scanned the barcode. “Well, no. It’s just, didn’t that band go downhill? No one ever talks about them anymore. They were just like a short faze, weren’t they? I heard in a tabloid that they broke up or something.” She explained. The boys had their jaws dropped.

What?! The band didn’t break up! They just said they were doing another show in a few hours... well, an small free ticket show. And they had heaps on followers on Twitter… well, now that the boys see. they have dropped a couple of thousand over the months. And they haven’t shown any news about them on the tele lately… But the band is not going ‘downhill’.

“Can I just have my CD please?” Louis asked snatching out his wallet and taking out the twenty pounds he had gotten paid with from his lovely job at Toys 'R' Us.

Ashley took the money and handed Louis the ‘Take Me Home’ CD. The boys said a quick thank you before rushing out the shop.

“We’ve got it!” Niall yelled excitedly. The two boys looked at the cover then at all the tracks on the back. “I love ‘Rock Me’ the best. Which songs do you like the most? Other than ‘Little Tings’ of course.”

Louis thought for a bit. “Um, probably ‘They Don't Know About Us’. I heard Harry wrote it! I just wish I knew what or who it was actually about. The lyrics are kinda deep." Louis said. Other fans, including Louis, have had their suspisions about the song, but neither of the One Direction boys will say what the true meaning is.

“Well, can you open it up so we can see the disk?” Niall questioned.

Without hesitation, Louis ripped off the plastic and took the case out of the cardboard cover to open it. Inside was the red CD that had One Direction Take Me Home written on it and had the little booklet with the lyrics inside. Carefully pulling out the booklet, they flicked through the pages. But then something fell out of it, a piece of paper. Louis picked it up.

"What's that?" Niall asked, brows furrowed.

Louis shrugged, flipping of the piece of paper in his hands and reading the bold letters saying 'ANNOUCMENT'.

"An annoucement?" Niall read over Louis' shoulder. Louis read it aloud.

“As most have noticed, the band have been having ‘difficulty’ as the fan numbers are dropping and sales of CD’s and merch are coming to a slow stop. So Harry, Liam and Zayn have come up with an idea and…” Louis’ eyes widened at what he saw was written next.

“What Lou? Keep reading it.” Niall pushed.

“And the boys are having auditions for one or two new band members to join One Direction!” Louis exclaimed loudly.


“I said, the boys-“

“I know what you said!” Niall rolled his eyes, cutting Louis off. “I mean, really?!”

“Well that’s what it says.” Louis replied, handing Niall the paper. One Direction needing new members? What’s wrong with just the three of them? But he thought it might be to get some more attention and get back into the news reports and tabloids again. Niall’s eyes prepped up, looking at Louis with a smirk. “What?” the confused boy asked.

“So, whose car are we taking? I’m willing to drive there.”

Um, what? “Niall, what are you trying to say?”

“I’m saying do you want me to drive you for the auditions you’re trying out for?” The boy asked with a smile on his face.

Louis froze with his eyes wide. “What?! No! I’m not auditioning for anything especially not for this. Besides, you know how stage frightened I am. No way would I embarrass myself in front of three sex gods.” He explained.

“Come on Lou! This may be your only chance to even get ten metres away from them. And I’ve heard you sing before, you’re amazing! Maybe you won’t get stage fright this time.” Louis raised an eyebrow at him. Niall rolled his eyes in return. “Just forget their even in the room and just sing like you always do when you’re alone. I’ll be right by your side.” Niall finished with a reassuring smile.

Louis thought for a bit. Could he actually do this?

No, he couldn’t. He’s known that ever since 2010 when he was about to audition for the X Factor himself, but got to scared and went home before even stepping out on stage. Ever since then he only sings when he’s by himself. No one but Niall knows he sings relatively okay. No one from his family knew he went to audition because he kept it a secret. How can Niall think he could do something as big as singing in front of the boys he looked up to and idolised?

“I don’t know Nialler.”

“I’ll come with you if you do it.” The boy suggested.

Louis then got an idea. “Let’s make a deal, okay?” Niall nodded. “I’ll audition for the band-“

“Yes! I knew I could persuade you!”

“Wait! I wasn’t finished. I’ll audition for the band… if you audition too!” Louis said, sticking his hand out waiting for his mate’s hand to make it a done deal.

“What? Why do I have to?”

“Because I know you can sing too! And the paper did say they want to find one or two new members. Come on Nialler. I’ll only do it if you do it with me.” Louis begged. “I’ll get down on my hands and knees if you don’t accept right now.”

Niall sighed. “Okay, okay. But I’m not as good as you’re saying I am. But also, if this is the only way we’ll ever see them.” He shook his hand with Louis. “Then I guess I’ll do it.”

“Yay! Oh, and before you offered about driving us there.” Louis smirked.

Niall rolled his eyes once again. “If that’s the only way I’ll get you there.”
