APRIL, 4th 2013 London
Jade's point of view
That's it. Tonight is the night. I'm about to do my very first show on X-factor. Not only in front of the Judges and the audience, but in front of hundreds of thousands of people, The entire country, the whole United Kingdom. It says that 80% of english people are watching X-factor in front of their TV every wednesday. Last years, i was one of them. Not anymore.
I'm backstage, waiting for the show to start.
While I'm waiting my turn, Bruno Mars is doing the Opening of the new season by singing his new single "Locked out of Heaven".
I started turning around myself and thinking about him. It's been a week since he texted me. The fact that he had a thought for me by wishing me luck when he's on Tour at million miles away from London makes me more anxious. He wasn't obliged to do it, right? Okay, i'm making movies in my head. He's got more than 10 girls in his repertory. He probably wishes them luck as well. So Jade, DOWN TO EARTH. and concentrate on what is more important for now.
Why am I afraid to text him back? It's probably due to the last part of the text where it says that he wanted to see me in two weeks. A simple 'Ok' may suffice as an answer but my fingers seem to not willing to type on the keyboard. Or, maybe because i've read some magazines about him. Oh yes i did...
Usually i'm not this kind of person to read all these things told in tabloïds but now, the temptation was too big when he texted me. 2 months ago, May told me something about him. I just wanted to know if it was true. But Magazines aren't suppose to say wrong stuff?
Someone knocked on the door and i've been pushed out of my thoughts.
Me: 'Come in'
Navy and May entered. They both came here to support me. I rushed at them and hugged them. The embrace was tighter and tighter until they complained. I laughed.
May: 'Damn Jade, you were Hulk in your previous life, weren't you?'
Me: 'Hahaha, sorry i'm a bit nervous'
Navy: 'Not just a bit. I'm about to take a cup of coffee, do you want some?'
May: ' No thanks, Jade you should take one, you're so pale! You look sick. It's not a good impression for your first appearance on TV' she laughed.
I refused by nodding left to right. I'm neither thirsty nor hungry at all. I'm at the edge to vomit because of stressing.
Navy left the room, letting me in front of May.
Me: ' Can I ask you something?'
Me: 'Is that true what it's said about Harry Styles in the Magazines?'
May: 'about his hot blonde dates?'
May: 'Well, it's partly true, i mean in all magazines the journalists add some bullshit to be more spicy and provocative in order to make scandals to sell out. But, i made some research and it turns out that Harry did really date all these girls in less than two months... The model Cara Delevingne, the singer Rita Ora, Taylor Swift and many others!!! All...'
Me: 'Tall, Blonde, and extremely hot! Yeah i noticed hahah'
May: 'Yes. Haha. But now we know what is his type of girl, even if he still denies during interviews that he doesn't have a type. But, since the Take Me Home Tour began, there's no more news about him and this affair. Oh did you know that some journalists nicknamed him as "The teaser" or "The Player". There is another one which marked me, i think it was The...'
Me: ' The Famous Heartbreaker...'
May: 'Yeah, how you know?'
Me: 'Hey!!! I'm using Twitter too!!!'
May: 'But since when you're interested in Harry's life?'
A member of the technicians suddently entered in my room and told me it was my turn in a minute.
i stood up, i took a deep breath, and followed him.
May: ' You didn't answer my question!'
I turned around to face her and sketched a little smirk. Then i kept my way to go on stage. On my way i could hear the TV presenter talking about the previous performance. 15 seconds left.
I quickly took my mobile, unlocked it and started to type something.
Harry's point of view.
Last night was amazing. Like the others. This tour is completely a success from the beginning. Me and the lads are enjoying every single moment of being on stage near to those who made us what we are today. We're so thankful.
We are actually on our way to Florida in the tour bus for our last 5 tour dates in America.
It's for hours that my eyes are focusing on the road. My forehead is resting on the window. All alone.
Zayn and liam are downstairs talking to the bus driver, Niall and Louis are sitting on the couch at the other end of the 2nd floor.
This massive secret that gnawing inside of me is starting to weigh. All of them showed understanding about my accumulated relationships knowing that there was a reason behind all of that. My secret. My fucking secret. I had many opportunities to tell them. Their my best friends, before i was always leaning on them. But now i can't. i just can't.
Louis to Niall: ' He looks like a larva'
Me: ' Heeeeey I'm near you, i can hear everything you say'
Niall: ' Perhaps. You're near us physically. But mentally, you're far away Harry.'
Niall frowned at me and left the room to go to the room next door. I sighed. I feel guilty. Niall was the only one who didn't raised the voice when the other lads did. He was the only one with whom i didnt wrangle. Why should i be so disrespectful? I noticed his watered eyes before he left and it makes me more umcomfortable. I looked down and put my arms around my head in order to hide my eyes which started to tingle.
Louis: ' Damn atmosphere. '
He sighed and walked down the stairs to join Ziam.
Here i am. Definitely alone. I'm pretty good by rejecting myself from those i love.
My mobile suddenly vibrated, displaying a new message.
Wait, i'm not on stage in front of thousands fans. I'm not either being interviewed. So basically, in my situation, i have no reason to smile? excepted this text, it does.
I hastened to reply.
Zayn: 'Is that girl you've talked to me last time that makes you smile like that?'
Oh crap, i've forgotten i told him.
Me: ' What girl?'
Zayn: ' don't deny it Harry, you're still smiling like an idiot ' he laughed.
My smile definitely betrays me.
Louis appeared behind Zayn's back and rushed at me.
Me: 'Louis give me phone! LOUIS TOMLINSON!'
I started to run after him throughout the bus, making noise.
Louis and Zayn were playing football with my phone. I frowned.
Zayn: ' Louis catch it !'
Louis: ' I have it!'
Me: 'Lou, you're my best friend, right? give me my phone !!!!'
I looked at him with the pitiest eyes i could do to make him change his mind. Usually it does work.
Louis: 'Oh no, Haz don't do these kitty eyes with me. It doesn't work anymore!'
Louis: ' Awww.... Harryyyyy'
He was about to give me my phone back, but, instead, he threw it in the air and landed in Niall's hands who came back with wonder about the previous noise.
Zayn: 'Yes ! Well done bro!'
Louis: ' TOUCHDOOOOOWN !!! Yeaaah babeeeh'
Niall: ' Jade? Who's Jade?'
Me: ' No one. Give me my phone, please'
Liam: 'Aaay i want to know too.'
Me: It's nobody! Go all back to your previous occupations.'
All: 'Come ooooooooooooon duuuude!'
Me: 'Okay okay! She's a girl...'
Louis: 'No kidding!'
Me: 'I met her during the bootcamp.'
Liam: 'But why do you have her number? '
Me: ' what's wrong with asking someone's number? I think she's nice.'
Zayn: 'You're going to see her again?'
Me: ' Yeah? why? is it forbidden?'
Louis: ' No. It's just that...'
Me: ' that ?'
Louis: ' That's great. This girl makes you smile again. It's been a while.'
Harry: 'I swear you're worst than girls concerning gossips'

Jade's side. Her House.
She rushed down the stairs, went to the kitchen and poured some coffee in her favorite mug with the England flag on it. Someone knocked on the door.
Jade was wondering who could be here at this time very early. She opened the door and a blond hair girl rushed into the house screaming.
May: ' Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah my Gooooooood '
Jade: 'What's up?'
May: 'The Boys are back in London for their breaaaak! I didn't know they will come back i thought they'd spend it in the USA. But no !!!'
Jade: 'Oh great you can finally meet them at the supermarket!' She said ironically
May: 'This is not funny. A lot of fans are meeting them every day! why not me?! You've got the chance to meet harry! not me... OMG imagine i meet Niall one day?'
Jade:' You're fangirling...'
May: 'Ok stop me.'
The brunette crushed May's foot.
May: ' Ouch are you crazy?'
Jade: 'Yeah crazy about you darling!' She laughed and took her purse.
May: 'fffff that's hurt... Where are you going?'
Jade: 'Somewheeeeere. business calls.'
She slammed the front door and went to her car.
Before making ignition to the car she took her phone to read her organizer:
-9 am: Manicure
-11 am: bank
- 1 pm: X-F rehearsals
she scrolled the screen until seeing
-6 pm: Starbuck
*Oh crap, i've forgotten. It was today.*
She made the ignition and went to the first appointment of the day.
The brunette packed away her stuff in her bag and was about to leave until someone held up by screaming her name.
Simon: ' Oh jade! We have to see you in my office, nothing important just some things to adjust.'
Jade looked at her watch: 5:05 PM. she was afraid to be late.
Jade: ' Um sure...'
Going. not going. going. not going.
Louis: 'come on man it's been an hour you're turning around! stop it. I feel dizzy.'
Harry: I'm not going.'
Louis:' What? YOU invited her! you have to!'
Harry: 'Now i don't know why! I'm so confused.'
Louis: ' Ow, dude. this is the first time you're panicked like that for a girl. where is the dangerous fearless flirty?
Harry:' Shut up! He's still here. I'm not panicked. I'm I'm...'
Harry: 'Yeah...' He sighed.
His mobile ringed.
Harry: ' Hello?'
...:' Harry you have to come immediately!
Harry: 'What's happening? something wrong? I can't i have something to do.'
...: ' Don't talk and come over here right now !'
Harry cast a worried look to louis.
Louis: 'Who was it?'
She only had few minutes to prepare herself. Not physically because it's too late to come home and find a fine dress but, mentally. How could she stay calm. when she knows that she's going to drink a coffee with a superstar. it's pretty terrifying.
He said he's going to be disguised. She was walking on the way to the starbuck he told her to go and at the same time she was laughing by imagining him with different disguise like the grandpa's one or something typical: a woman.
She finally arrived in the mentionned place. she ordered a hot chocolate extra whipped cream and she took place in a table isolated enough to not be disturbed.
She was still waiting. The brunette was looking at her watch all the 30 seconds.
Didn't want the drink to get cold, she started to drink it.
* Okay he's maybe a superstar, but i really don't like people who love to be desired. *
She wore her coat and stood up, when she turned around to join the exit, the brunette overthrew a very old woman.
Jade: 'Oh lord, I'm sorry are you okay?'
Old Woman: ' i'm okay dear.'
She help the old one to stand up and make her sit in the chair facing the one she was on previously.
Jade: 'Can someone bring some ice please????'
Old Woman: 'I said i'm okay!' the old lady's voice turned into more male.
The young girl raised her eyebrows, questionning herself. She looked at the person closely. Gawk.
Jade: 'Harry???' She whispered.
Harry: 'Yes it's me. You're not good for descretion.'
Jade: ' Oh my God! I've imagined you as a woman or a grandpa or i don't know a police man! But a granny? seriously? 'she exploded with laughter.
Harry: 'Heeeey what do you have against Grannys?' he pouted.
Jade:' Nothing! On the contrary, i love to save their life just like i did.'
Harry: ' So you save people's lives by overthrowing them before?'
She nodded, proud.
Harry: 'haha, Simple, but effective!'
Jade: ' I know right'
They both laughed and kept on making the conversation
Harry: ' So Jade, tell me some things about you.'
