12. X-Factor...

Carla's POV

I woke up in the morning and saw red on my cast.

"Shit. Come on! DAD MY BROKEN HAND IS BLEEDING!" I screamed putting on socks and trainers with a hoodie. Dad came dressed.

"Not today. You're supposed to be on the X-Factor." He said.

"Hospital." I said. He nodded and we ran to the car. He drove and when we got there the doctor attended us fast.

"You won't need an operation but we will stitch it up again." The doctor said.

"Well I won't be here for that long then." I smiled.

"Yep." He smiled.

Within an hour my hand was dealt with and a new bandage was put on and we were on our way home.

"When am I going to perform?" I asked.

"5pm." Dad smiled.

"Okay. So I have 3 hours free." I smiled.

"Yeah." He said as we pulled up to the house.

"Okay well I'll shower, change, eat, watch TV for a while then go Starbucks." I explained to him.

"Okay that's great. Well off you go!" He said opening the door to the house.

"Bye!" I said walking to my bedroom. I blasted music in my bedroom and went to my bathroom. I came out ten minutes later and put on black jeans ripped from my knees. Chelsea boots. A top that reads 'Fuck with me I fuck with you!' To finish off I had a black denim jacket on. I left my hair the way it was and grabbed my phone and house keys.

"Food!" I said then I got toast and I watched TV. It was 4:00 and I decided to go and Starbucks.

"Zaynie. Mocha frappe?" I asked and he nodded.

"Grab me one please." They said at the same time. I laughed.

"Joshua come with me." I said. He nodded and we left for Starbucks.

"Hi can I get nine mocha frappes." I said.

"Yes that will be £20 please." She said.

"Okay here you go." I said giving her the money.

"Thank you. We will call your name in a moment." She smiled. I nodded and moved to the side. Around 5 minutes we were called up and I carried 4 while Joshua carried 5.

"If I drop them imma cry." I laughed.

"Awww. I'll buy more. And your hand is broken." Joshua smiled. I laughed and done the doorbell. Dad came and helped me. I handed them out one by one then we sat and talked until 4:45. We left and drove for the stadium.

"What's up with the zip ups today?" I asked.

"We'll show you later." Niall laughed.

"Okay then..." I said. We parked up and went in to give in my name. We were sent to performers and family only. Then they opened there zippers and the shirts read 'We believe Carla's got it.'

I laughed at them. I watched the other contestants and most were amazing. I smiled and laughed at most acts. Then the called me up on stage. I grabbed the microphone in my left hand and walked out on stage.

"Hello." I said.

"Hello. What is your name and tell us about yourself." Simon said.

"My name is Carla Styles. I'm 16. I work in a bakery. I've just finished my GCSE's and I'm here." I said.

"Harry's kid?" Amanda asked. I nodded.

"Thank you. What will you be singing?" He asked.

"18 by One Direction." I smiled.

"Good luck and blow us away!" Simon said.

"I got a heart and I got a soul

Believe me I will use them both

We made a start

Be it a false one, I know

Baby, I don’t want to feel alone

So kiss me where I lay down, my hands press to your cheeks

A long way from the playground

I have loved you since we were 18

Long before we both thought the same thing

To be loved, to be in love

All I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you

I wanna love like you made me feel

When we were 18." I finished.

Everyone was standing and clapping for me. I laughed and smiled.

"Carla. That was magical. You have passion for singing and it's beautiful." Louis smiled.

"Thank you." I smiled.

"You have a strong voice I could listen to it all day." Alisha smiled. Then Amanda said something the same.

"Carla. I heard you sing before and it was amazing. I am proud you came here. Because I am going to help you become successful." Simon smiled.

"Thank you." I smiled.

"Yes." Louis smiled.

"Yes." Alisha smiled.

"Yes." Amanda smiled.

"It's a yes from me." Simon smiled.

"Oh my gosh thank you so much. Many thanks." I smiled.

"Oh and Carla," Simon called. I looked back at him "we all wish for you to get welly soon." He smiled. I thanked him and ran to dad. I jumped in his arms and hugged him tightly.

"I done it with the help of all of you guys. I love each and every one of you." I smiled.

"This calls for a celebration!" We cheered. I kissed Joshua and we went to eat.

"This evening goes to Carla. The one who made it through the X-Factor with four YES'." Dad smiled. I laughed and we ate. Me and Zayn had lasagna with salad on the side. Everyone else got steak and chips.

"I want dessert." I said.

"Same." Everyone cheered.

"I want..... Chocolate Oreo Cake with extra Chocolate!" I gushed.

"Okay." Dad laughed. Zayn got the same as me. Everyone ordered cheesecake.

"Okay I'm hitting the gym now!" I said holding my stomach. "Too much food." I groaned.

"Okay let's go home!" Dad said.

"SHOTGUN!" I yelled. "I get the front seat!" I smirked.

"Yeah." They all laughed.

We sat in the car and the radio blasted. Whatever came on we joined in.

"I am so tired!" I exclaimed. "Night!" I said running upstairs.

"NIGHT!" They yelled. I changed into my night clothes and jumped in bed. Joshua came to my room and joined me in bed.

"Goodnight!" He smiled.

"Night." I said closing my eyes. I fell asleep within 10 minutes because Joshua held me.

My life is going great!
