"I'm scared to go outside again." Stella says while peaking out the hotel room curtains. Since London is my brothers first tour stop before we go to America the weather hit me harshly. I feel so dumb forgetting. It being November ,London is freezing.
"What's on the agenda for the rest of the day?" I curiously ask. Stella turns to me and sits on her big bed which is across from mine. "The boys concert isn't until tomorrow. Luke told me they were going to start rehearsing at 6pm but its 5pm." She tells me. "Do you want to go with them?" I ask. She nods for her head then walks tords her luggage. "But I am not going out there in a summer outfit." Whoever would is crazy.
I decided on wearing grey knit leggings, a soft oversized white sweater, a denim jacket with grey sleeves and hood, paired with black studded combat boots. As I run my hands through my hair, Stella walks out of the bathroom. "You look cute!" She tells me. "Me? You look badass." I turn from the mirror and admire her edgy style. She's wearing a muscle Nirvana shirt with a white knit cardigan, with black jeans and white converse, paired with a white beanie. "You can borrow any of my clothes whenever." She smiles sweetly. "Same with me." I tell her. "Good, because I love your boots." Just when I was going to say thank you, a knock on the door distracted me. "I'll get it!" Stella says before running down the small hall to the door.
Luke's smiling face appears. "Hey Luke! Did you come to see you favorite sister?" Stella jokes as he walks to our hotel room. I couldn't help but feel jittery when he looks to me and smiles bigger. "Your my only sister Stells. But the band is leaving, are you girls coming?" I nod my head. "If Ashton is there I'm there." Whispers Stella. I look to see her brothers reaction but he doesn't seemed surprised at all. Luke shakes his head happily. "Wait you told your brother?" My tone full of shock. Stella looks at me weird. "Well yeah... I tell my brother everything." Sadness hits me a little. Calum and I use to be that way..
Once Luke, Stella, and I arrive in the hotel lobby we see the rest of the boys waiting. After how Michael acted to me, I'm a bit hesitant to say anything to him. "Hey everyone," greets Stella as we reach them. "Hey, are we all ready to go?" Calum asks. "Yeah." Answers Luke. We begin to all make our way out the glass hotel doors and into the freezing cold. The arena was just around the corner so we decided to walk.
All of us kind of walked in pairs. Michael and Calum in the front. Luke and Ashton in the middle, and Stella with me in the back. All into our own conversation with the person next to us. My eyes went from Stella, to infront of me then occasionally glancing at Michael. Ugh I can't help it.
Stella seemed to notice this. "Carter, just go talk to him." Sighs Stella. I look at her like she was crazy. "What?" trying to seem confused. "Don't play dumb. You've been admiring from a far ever since we met up with them in the lobby." She whispers so only I can hear. "Fine I admit I am. But what am I suposte to say?" I ask. "Doesn't matter just be casual." Stella smiles. "Okay. I'll talk to him, just not right now." Why did I just agree to that? Crap.
Calum and Michael take a turn entering this huge stoned building we have been walking along for a while. The rest of us follow inside. I feel instantly relieved from the warm air inside. We go up a couple flights of stairs. Calum pushes open the door and my eyes widen when we walk inside. "Holy shit. This place is huge!" I yell in shock. I hear chuckles but I was too intrigued to be embarrassed. Our footsteps echo of this huge black stage that has a runway in the middle that leads out to the million seats and a big balcony above.
"How many people are coming?" Asked Stella who is just as shocked as me. "We sold out." Ashton proudly says. I turn around. "That's amazing. I'm so proud of you!" I hug my brother tightly. "What about us!?" Luke fake cries. "You too." I cheer. "Thanks Sis." Calum kisses my cheek before Stella and I take a seat in the third row of the audience seats .I see their instruments all set up along with microphones and huge amplifier speakers. They each take their places.
