A Different Life

When Selena was born, she spent 3 years with her parents until they died in a car crash. The three year old British girl spent 13 years in the adoption center. Selena was adopted by Simon Cowell when she turned 16 years old. That was the same year when One Direction was discovered. She ends up hating them when she meets them. But after a while, will she end up to like them? Will she become more than friends with one of the boys? Find out when reading, "A Different Life".


10. Spotlight

I grabbed the mic from the backstage hand person. "Are you ready?" I heard a whisper in my ear. I turned around to see Niall standing there. "I guess." I said uneasy and I looked out and saw at least a thousand people out there. "Are they my fans or yours?" I asked him. "Both, at least I think they would come for you." I looked at him. I smiled and turned back around. "Thank you for coming out tonight. Its a special night for Simon Cowell but even more for his daughter. Give it up for Selena Cowell and One Direction!!!" Yelled the announcer into the arena.


I looked out and saw signs, only of One Direction. None of the signs had my name on it. No one was screaming my name. I felt like a shadow behind them. The boys looked at me and they didn't know why I wasn't talking into the microphone. I stuttered to speak, girls were still screaming for them. I looked at each boy. Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Louis. I choked back my tears. My mic was turned off and I wasn't turning it on.


"What's wrong?" Zayn said as he ran over to me. "I cant do this." I said and I ran off stage. People tried to stop me, but for them, it was useless. The boys ran after me and Louis stayed on stage. "Keep holding on fans. If your patient, we might give you a treat." He said and he ran offstage to run after me. "SELENA!!!!" I heard a voice yell from behind me. I didn't stop to look at who it was.


"ITS YOUR SPOTLIGHT NOW!" I yelled even louder. I cried and ran at the same time. "I cant watch you do this to yourself." A male's voice said as he finally caught up to me and I stopped. "Niall, they love you guys, not me. They're only my fans because I am Simon's daughter. That's the only reason why." I cried and he held me close to him. The others caught up too. "I don't want to do this." I said crying and shaking.


We walked back inside and I sat offstage while they performed. "Selena got sick so we will perform for her tonight." Liam said. They did a sneak peak of their new song and performed older songs. It's their spotlight now, maybe I was never meant to be in the spotlight. Letting Simon adopt me was the biggest mistake. He probably knows it now, and always will. Spotlight, doesn't belong to everyone.
