I'm sitting in my bedroom alone, waiting for Emily to come over. She's been having lots of trouble with math and wanted me to tutor her over winter break. I'm on the computer checking over the Facebook and Twitter pages. We have a notification for messages and I click on it, thinking it's probably some crazy fan. To my surprise, it was from Modest.
'Ugh, Modest,' I think to myself.
I click on it out of curiosity and I was shocked to see what I saw.
"Good day 5 Seconds of Summer! The boys are looking for an opening act and they would be happy to choose you. Please contact us at our business email in our bio and get back to us as quickly as possible, thank you!"
My boys, they're gonna be famous.
I mean if they go...
What about me?
They can't take me, I'm talentless and in 9th grade.
But it would be a cool summer.
Emily walks into my bedroom distracting me from my thoughts.
"Ready to help me?"
I ask Emily to stay while I go into a group chat with Emily, Luke, Michael, Calum, Ashton, and I. I text them to get to my house immediately and that both of my parents are at work. Michael comes in first since he is a five-minute walk from my house. He walks into my bedroom staring at all my posters. I just realized that none of the boys have ever been to my house. He sits in my desk chair and silence fills the air. I start to study Michael's features as he is distracted by his phone. His lips look full, pink, and plump. His eyes look even greener than they ever have. Some of his hair is poking out of his black beanie. He's wearing a white tank top and black basketball shorts since it is the summer. His lips carve out a smile which makes me smile and then Luke walks in. A couple minutes later followed by Ashton and Calum. I sigh and prepare how I'm going to say this. I would've been thinking but Michael just looked so perfect.
You don't like him.
He doesn't like you.
He's a dick to you and only you.
"So... I got a Twitter DM," I start to say. All their eyes are intently staring at me, making me even nervous.
"It's from Modest."
"One Direction wants... They want you to..." I start to stutter. I'm lost. I don't know what to say. I feel like the only one who is making me nervous is Michael.
'Goddamnit Adelaide it's not like your in love with him.' I say to myself.
I clear my throat and start again.
"One Direction wants you to join them on their worldwide tour," I quickly get out. I take a sigh of relief and look down for a second. They are stunned. They just released their first EP almost a week ago, December 7th, 2011. Now they are being asked to join One Direction, the world's most popular band, on tour. I'm proud of them. But I get sad. I won't be able to see them. I'm sure my parents won't let me go on tour with a bunch of boys for the summer. While I do have a job in the band it won't last long. They will get bigger and find better people. I'm just a 15-year-old girl who doesn't know shit. I know who I'll probably miss the most.
I mean Luke.
I 100% mean Luke.
