On tour with One Direction

Ashleigh is just an average, everyday girl with a strong passion for singing. Uploading YouTube videos regularly, she was a star in the making. But one day she gets a very exciting phone call from a certain boyband and her whole life and career as a singer changes...


7. Backstage

"You were amazing!" I told the guys as they ran off stage buzzing.

"Hey! So were you!" Harry cried as he ran past smiling.

"You were really awesome, Ashleigh" Louis said looking shy as he approached me.

"Err.. Thanks," I replied blushing. There was a few seconds of awkward silence before Louis pointed in the direction the others were going.

"I should probably..." He started. I just nodded my head indicating I knew what he meant. With a small nod of his head he quickly ran off.

Well what was that about? Louis looking shy? Louis? He'd always been the loud, confident and approachable one. It was really strange but I just shrugged it off. Nothing to worry about I told myself.

"Oh, honey you were so great!" I heard a voice cry behind me. I spun around and saw my mom running up to me with open arms. She was wearing her floral scarf like she always did in public to hide her bald head. She claimed it made her feel insecure but I told her she was beautiful without it. She obviously hadn't listened to me.

"Thanks!" I smiled as I embraced her in a warm hug.

"I'm so proud of you!" She said looking me straight in the eyes. There was a twinkle in her eye that I'd never seen before and I could tell she really was proud of me. She looked...happy. For once.

"Thanks mom," I whispered my eyes beginning to tear up.

I felt somebody tap my shoulder and I jumped at the sudden touch. I whipped around and saw Paul (the boys' tour manager) standing over me like a tower.

"Ashleigh it's time to get on the bus. We need to leave now," he said in a strict tone. He was fun most of the time but when it came to his job he was really serious. I nodded and looked back at my mom.

"I guess I'll see you in Manchester," I said as I hugged her once more. She would travel with me when we were in the UK but as soon as we went abroad I had to leave her. She was to ill to fly but we could call or skype. I also wanted to fly back from time to time to visit her. She promised she would look for someone to check in on her from time to time to make sure she was alright.

I really hoped she'll keep that promise.

A/N sorry this chapter is so short but it's kind of like a filler. Anyway, thank you for reading so far and I hope you're enjoying! I have loads of great ideas to come! Lucy <3
