Under The Lights (One Direction Love Story)
Hey (: Well since I love our boys I decided to write a One Direction love story. I might also introduce The Wanted at some point but I haven't finished writing it yet so we'll see how it goes. I hope that you guys like it. xx
What is it like to have a famous brother? No one knew about me, until the day he showed up with his band mates. Was this good or bad? I don't know. Do I like one of his mates? There are a lot of things I don't know, but I'm guessing I'll find out at some point.
Stop and Stare
This day brought a lot of surprises, Liam having a sister was probably the biggest one, but seeing as he didn't talk to her for so long I kind of understood why he didn't tell us. We were now in the studio, watching Julie.
Of course, she had no idea we were there. She was very pretty, I couldn't see her face but the only thing I could imagine was her having Liam's eyes and the same smile.
I've been in the studio since early in the morning, it was a habit. I'd wake up around 6, take a shower, change, and run down to the studio to practice. I've went through some of my Kelly Clarkson songs already, now it was time for some dancing. I played "Moves Like Jagger" and started dancing to the beat. The thing about me, I love dancing. Whenever I do, the whole world just disappears, I have a chance to forget about all of my problems and worries. The whole time I felt someone watching me.
'Oh well.' I thought to myself. 'It's probably just mom.'
The song changed and I started singing "Sun Will Rise" . It was one of my favorite songs at the moment.
You could say that music is my life. I felt that my blonde hair was hanging loose but wasn't bothered to tie it up again so I kept singing.
"Wow.. She's really good." I heard Niall whisper.
"I know, we used to sing together." I told them.
"Why didn't she audition for the X-factor with you mate?" Zayn asked me after a minute of silence.
"She.. well, something happened, and she stopped singing, but I, it was my dream so I auditioned without her." I replied becoming really interested in my shoelaces. Talking about that event was not something I liked to do. The music changed again and the song was now "How Will I Know". Her voice was amazing, much better than I last remembered. She must have practiced while I was gone.
This was my favorite song. I must say, I haven't listened to Whitney Houston till recently but now that I did, I loved her music.
"How will I know if he really loves me
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I'm asking you cause you know about these things
How will I know if he's thinking of me
I try to phone but I'm too shy
Falling in love is all bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak"
I sang, to the soft music. The song ended and I heard clapping. I turned around quickly and saw my older brother Liam standing there with a bunch of other guys I've never seen. Wait..
"Liam!!" I yelled. I ran to him, and jumped into a hug wrapping my legs around Liam's waist and hugging him tightly.
"I'm so sorry Li!" I said remembering our argument.
"I was an idiot, I was selfish, and I can't believe that I said all those things, and I'm so sorry, and I was so happy when you made it. You really deserve it, it's always been your dream, and I'm so sorry for reacting the way I did when you told me." I heard him chuckle at my rambling.
"I love you Juls, you know that. It's okay, you were upset, and I understand." He said to me.
"I love you too Liam." I said pulling back from the hug and smiling.
"You still have that smile of a five year old." He told me laughing. I heard a bunch of chuckles and remembered about the bunch of guys standing with him earlier.
I jumped down and realized how tall everyone was.
"Okay. Li I swear either you grew so much, or I'm shrinking." They all chuckled.
"Julie these are the guys I'm in a band with Zayn, Niall, Louis, and Harry." He said pointing to each of them.
"Boys this is my sister." Liam said smiling.
"I think they've got that Li." I said using a nickname I have given him when I was five.
"Unless they thought I was your girlfriend. Which I'm not, cause that's just.. ew. No." The boys laughed at my random comment.
"It's nice to meet you." Niall said extending his hand.
"Screw handshakes they're for strangers." I said ignoring his hand and hugging him. I hugged each of them and they hugged in return.
"We're like family now." Louis said laughing.
"Yay." I said jumping up and down and joining him in the laughter.
"You have an amazing voice." Niall said smiling at me, while Zayn, Liam and Louis nodded in agreement. Harry however, smirked and challenged me.
"I still think I'm better than you." I laughed a fake laugh, smirked and answered him.
"Oh really? Well then bring it on Curly." He walked over to my stereo and picked a song. He sang 'Summer of 69' and I must admit he was good. I didn't let that ruin my confidence. I stood by the mirrors with the rest of the guys. Niall had his arm around my waist, while Louis kept playing with my hair. The three of us hit it off as best friends straight away. When Harry finished the song and it was my turn they both gave me a reassuring squeeze.
I walked over to the stereo and picked 'Skinny Love' from my favorite playlist.
Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer
I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall
And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines
I sang softly to the melody coming from the speakers. Harry started at me as if I sprouted a tail while the rest of them just smiled and listened. Niall gave me a smile and a reassuring thumbs up.
To be honest, I knew that she was much better than me. I just wanted to hear her voice again, it was more beautiful than ever. It was like an angel sighing. Wait. Stop right there. What on earth is happening to me!? I can't like her. I just met the girl. Plus she's Liam's sister. I don't want to risk broken bones if he finds out. On the other hand, I've never fallen for a girl this fast. My relationships never last long, I'd flirt, have a laugh with her, and then move on. This one though, it felt different.
When the song ended all the boys clapped and cheered including Harry this time.
"Okay. I must admit you're good." He said to me.
"I know." I said laughing, "But honestly, you're not so bad yourself Curly." I added ruffling his hair.
"I'm bored!!!" Louis yelled,
"Is there anything to do here?" Zayn asked.
I thought for a bit.
"Well, there's not much going on today so we could like go to the park, then get a pizza come back here, and watch a movie or something if you guys want."
"PIZZAAA!!" Niall yelled
"I'll take that as a yes." I said laughing.
"Well them c'mon let's go." Liam said to us.
"WAIT!" I yelled realizing that I'm still in my clothes from the practice.
"What?!" They all asked
"I HAVE to change, I'm not going anywhere looking like this, even though I look so awesome right now." I said causing them to laugh. "Meet you in the kitchen in 10 okay?" I said while sprinting up the stairs to my room.
[A/N: Hey I'm gonna have Julie 'write' some songs in this story. Of course I'm terrible at writing songs so I'll use some that already exist. I do not take any credit for them and I'll try to list all the titles and artists at the end of the chapters. I'll only do that for the ones that she 'writes' not for others I use. ]
