Miranda starts to fall for one of the boys but it threatens her job, where if something happened she would have to go back to Montana and face everything she left behind.

Soon we arrived in London. We went to bed woke up did rehearsal the usual blah blah blah the first night...went fine! But our second night in London...that was probably the worst show I've ever done not because someone messed up...because there was a slight incident...with fire. You might know what I'm talking about now... The show was going great, almost too great, no one was really phoning in for help...which is unusual but, I didn't think anything of it, it was actually kind of nice. Me and Nebraska were making wedding plans backstage in the makeup room, laughing and talking. Until I got an urgent sounding voice in my earpiece, I couldn't even understand what whoever it was, was saying. 

"Woah, woah, woah....What?" I asked.

"Something's happened on stage and we need you down here right now!" Someone said.

"Oh lord! Okay I'm on my way!" I said and started running out of the makeup room down the hall to the stage with Nebraska not far behind. I arrived right backstage with Calum freaking out, Luke and Ashton trying to stay calm and Michael holding his face in pain and a young girl who was the only girl on medical staff trying not to freak out and inspect Michael's face. 

"What the hell happened!" I asked alarmed. No one answered for a moment then Luke spoke up,

"There were some mistakes with the pyrotechnics and Michael burned his face." 

"Holy shit!" I said grabbing my phone out of my back pocket and dialing 911 with my shaky hand. 

"911 what's your emergency?"

"Hi my name's Miranda I'm a stage crew worker here at the arena and my friend burned his face and you need to get paramedics down here right now." I said trying to stay calm.

"Okay were sending paramedic's right now, can you stay on the phone with me until paramedics arrive." 


"Okay try applying cold water to the burned area..." 

"Okay..." I said putting my hand over the phone for a minute and talking to the room of frightened people. 

"OKAY! Luke get some cold water at put it on the burnt area, Ashton! Calm Calum down! and somebody find Nebraska and make sure she's okay!" People started doing what I told them and I listened for the 911 operator. Until just then I heard sirens, the sweet sound of help finally arriving.

"Paramedics are here thanks, bye." I said not waiting for her to hang up. I ran out the door to find the paramedics I told them to follow me to the back room as they ran after me. Fans were panicking and no one was out there doing anything. 

"DANIEL I NEED YOU WHERE ARE YOU?!" I yelled. I tried to stay under control but I started freaking out. I remembered my earpiece. 

"DANIEL!?" I desperately shouted into it. After a few minutes of dead air I finally heard Daniel reply.

"What's going on Miranda? Everyone is freaking out!"

"I KNOW! I'LL TELL YOU IN A BIT! But, I need you to go out and tell the people in the audience that everythings fine and to look on twitter for more details but they have to be dismissed just handle it and do what I told you." I said

"Yeah okay." Daniel said and quickly started doing what I said. I felt a hand on my shoulder, I turned around, it was Ashton.

"Were going to the hospital, let's go!" He said and we ran out to follow the doctors. Calum and Luke were right up close to Michael and it took a minute but I saw Nebraska there too. I knew she was upset but I can talk to her later. Me and Ashton finally caught up and jumped into the ambulance. I balanced as it sped down the road to the nearest hospital. I heard the faint sound of my phone ringing. I looked down and saw a picture of Daniel light up the screen. I clicked answer.

"Hello?" I asked running my fingers through my hair. 

"Hey, I did what you said, the manager is on the way to the hospital but so is just like, a wave of fans...good luck out there."

"Thanks Daniel...just try to keep everyone calm down there."

"Okay" He said and hung up then I ended the call too. We soon arrived at the hospital and they took Michael into a hospital room. We were all listening to the doctor when I looked out the window on the door and saw just a huge amount of fans almost running to Michael's room. How did they even find out we were here? Me and Nebraska shared a look and busted out the door. Some fans were crying others were freaking out and some just kept asking me if he was okay. I'd been around a lot of fans but never with this much emotion and panic. Nebraska looked at me with wide worried eyes. She quietly said,

"I'm worried about Michael." Even though I didn't want to be alone out here, I knew what I had to do. The nerves rippled through me when I said,

"Go in there...I can handle it." 

"Thank you" She mouthed and quickly slipped back in the door. Now I was out here, alone.
