4. Out of the Ordinary

“Well, I’m 19, umm, I have a big love for music but I’ve never played in front of anyone. I live in Manchester with my parents, well I did…” I began, stopping as I felt a tear roll down my cheek. Louis noticed and bumped my shoulder gently, distracting me. "Hey, c'mon. You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to." I smiled and wiped the tear away. “It’s alright, I’m down visiting my aunt, there was a bit of trouble back home. Anyway, could I hear you guys sing?” I asked, wanting something to distract me. “No,” I heard Niall say, coming over to me with a guitar. “Let’s hear you sing.” He said, handing me the guitar. “What? No, I’m not that good. You guys won’t like it.” I said, thinking that I was really bad and that they would laugh at me.

“C’mon love, let us be the judge of that.” Liam said, joining us by the couch. I sighed and took the guitar from Niall. Resting it on my knee I began fiddling, putting my fingers on the strings and strumming a few random chords, I finally got comfortable with the guitar. I looked up and saw all of the boys looking at me, waiting for me to start. I blushed and looked away, I couldn’t believe that I was about to sing in front of One Direction, in front of my idols, the people I have posters of up on my walls back at home. The perfect song came to me as I started to play.

Well, You done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, Now I’m trying to get back

before the cool done run out I’ll be giving it my bestest
and nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon its again my turn, to win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate no more,
No more, it cannot wait I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
open up your plans and damn you’re free
look into your heart and you’ll find love love love

Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate, our time is short
this is our fate, I’m yours

Do, do, do, don’t cha want to come on
Scootch on over closer dear,
and I will nimble your ear

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait,
I'm yours

Open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn your free
Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours

So please don't, please don't, please don't
There's no need to complicate cause our time is short
This o' this o' this is our fate
I'm yours


Strumming the last chord I let out a soft sigh as I slowly looked up at the boys. All of the boys were looking at me like they were in shock. “Was I that bad?” I asked, looking down shyly. “Are you kidding!! Love, you were amazing.” I heard Harry say. I looked up quickly and looked at each of the boys.

“You really think I was good?” I asked, thinking that what they were saying was only what I wanted to hear. “Rose, you are incredible! Why are you so sure that you’re bad?” Louis asked. I sighed and placed the guitar against the couch.

“After I got my first guitar my parents let me get some lessons but after a while I would always come home from school, go straight to my room and play my guitar, it was the only way for me to get over stuff that had happened at school. Music was the only way for me to calm down but my parents never understood that and they would always yell ‘Shut up that noise!’ or they would come up to my room and say to me ‘Shut that guitar up or we’ll take that stupid thing away from you!’. I never played my guitar after that because I knew that they would take the only thing that ment the most to me away from me and I would never get it back.” I shook my head, trying to rid the memory of my parents threatening me to take my guitar from me and knowing that they would break it after they got it. “They would have smashed it on the ground and then thrown all of the pieces onto the fire.” I said, tears brimming my eyes.

Shaking my head, I grabbed the guitar again and played a few chords softly. “That’s horrible. Not being able to play music to escape the world.” I nodded as I listened to the boys talk. “Yeah, so you see why I never played in front of anyone until today that is.” I quietly said, loud enough for only Louis to hear.

“Boys, I just got an idea.”
