1. First Impressions


Home. It was just a word right? Wrong. It was you. And when you leave it you feel different. That was exactly how I was feeling right now. I was on a plane to London with my little sister Michelle. My name is Brooke Cowell. The last name sounds familiar right? Yeah that is because my uncle is Simon Cowell. He is the reason I am on this plane right now. His brother or my father had died two years ago from a heart attack. When he died my mother turned to alcohol for comfort and one week ago she had finally decided to go into rehab. When Simon found this out he insisted we come back to London. I lived in London until I was sixteen and when my father died my mother packed up everything and moved us to Ireland. Now I am eighteen and back in London. I still think I am capable of taking care of Michelle and I. I mean Michelle is already sixteen. Ok that was a lie. In the week I had been home by myself I had almost killed us both about fifteen times. Once was when I was trying to cook but got distracted and burned the chicken and it burst into flames. Another was when I was helping Michelle get something on the top shelf and I stood on a chair and I ended up falling flat on my back while the shelf hit Michelle on the top of her head. Yeah I am what you call a klutz. Michelle on the other hand is the opposite of me. She was popular coordinated and a good cook. I lived in the shadows of my sister and I hated it. When we went to school she would get all the boys even though I was older. I had one friend only. Well at least I thought she was my friend until I found her in bed with my now ex -boyfriend Kyle. So basically I was alone in the world. The cabin lights came on and everybody started to stand up signaling that we have landed. 

“Oh my god look!” Michelle exclaimed pointing her direction to a limo with a man standing next to it holding up a sign saying “Brooke.” Damn did I feel special. Michelle ran to the limo while I felt something hard pressed against me. I stepped away and saw a green eyed and curly haired boy who was very attractive.

“What where you are going.” He snapped at me and Mr. Green Eyes was suddenly a lot less attractive.

“Well maybe you should be more careful and move out of peoples way.” I snapped back placing my hands on my hips.

“I wasn’t the one running in a fucking airport.” He spat and I rolled my eyes.

“Dick” I muttered walking away.

“I heard that!” He yelled back and I ignored him and walking away. I got into the limo and was amazed.

“This is so awesome!” Michelle cried and I nodded in agreement.

“Yeah.” I said amazed. I was excited to see Simon. He had always been more protective of my then of Michelle and I knew exactly why. My parents had favored her. Apparently she has more potential than me because she has better grades than me and is more social. But there was one thing that I could beat her at. Singing. I could sing and only Simon knew. I have terrible stage fright and I had never wanted to sing in front of people but when I was fifteen I was at Simons house and I thought he was gone so I started to sing to myself but he heard me and ever since he has wanted to sign me. I immediately refused but he still asks me every time I talk to him. We pulled up to his gigantic house and quickly got out of the car. I saw Simon standing by the door and I smiled.

“Uncle Si!!” I called hugging him and he laughed. 

“Brooke! How have you been?” He asked and I shrugged.

“Ok I guess. Just missing mom.” I admitted and he gave me one of those sympathetic smiles.

“You will see her soon don’t worry.” He said and I smiled.

“Thank you.”

“Welcome Brooke. Now have you thought about my offer?” He asked and I got an idea.

“Yes I have actually.” His eyes lit up. “And I was thinking about it and well.” I continued and he began anxious wanting to know what I was going to say. “I still say no” I finished my sentence and his face fell.

“A simple no would have been better. Now go help Michelle to your rooms.” He said and I nodded taking mine and Michelle’s bags upstairs to our floor. Yes we have our own floor. I immediately got the bigger room leaving Michelle pouting in the smaller one. Simon was having one of his clients over so I took it upon myself to start unpacking.


We had just gotten back from the states and Simon wants to see us probably to discuss about the next album. I just wanted to get back to my flat. I was not having the best day. First our flight is delayed and then I meet this bitch at the airport. Even though she was really fit. When we got to Simon’s we saw a limo just leaving and I looked at Zayn.

“Who is that for?” I asked and he shrugged.

“I don’t know.” He replied getting out of the car. Louis knocked on the door and Simon greeted us and let us in.

“So who was that limo for?” Zayn asked beating me to it.

“My nieces had come to live with me.”

“How old are they?” I asked and everybody looked at me.

“Brooke is eighteen and Michelle is sixteen.” Simon replied and I smirked.

“So this Brooke girl.” I started but he cut me off.

“She is off limits.” He said sternly and I slouched back in my chair. I looked out the window and saw a brunette walking towards the pool in a bikini. Well hello Brooke. I only saw the back of her but from what I could tell she looked fit. 

“Will you excuse me for a second.” I said getting up and walking into the hallway leading to the back door that I was guessing this Brooke girl went through. She was already in the pool by the time I made my way outside and I smirked when I saw she was underwater. I quickly undressed myself down to my boxers and jumped in with her. She popped her head up out of the water and I put my hands on her waist and felt her stiffen up.

“Relax.” I whispered in her ear and she turned around and my jaw dropped.

“You!” We both said in unison and she pushed me off of her.

“Who the fuck are you and why are you following me!” She yelled and I went to speak but she continued.

“You know I could call the cops on your ass! What person does this!” She yelled getting out of the pool.

“Ok I can explain this.” I said getting out of the pool as well. 

“You have ten seconds.”

“Harry!” I heard Simon yell and I turned around to see the lads chuckling and Simon with a stern look on his face.

“Nice one Harry. You just scared the crap out of this poor girl.” Louis said walking to Brooke and handing her the towel off the back of the chair.

“She is not a poor girl she is the bitch at the airport.”

“I am the bitch. You just got into a pool with somebody you don’t even know and I am the bitch!” She called out and I was about to say something but Simon stepped in.

“Harry I told you to stay away.”

“It was so easy though. I mean she was in a bikini heading for the pool.” I tried to defend myself.

“Pervert.” Brooke mumbled but loud enough that I could still hear.

“I am not a pervert.”

“Because every normal person tries to rape somebody they just met.” She said walking back inside. Talk about a first impression.
