Hello Lovely Readers!

This is DestinyTulip's story account!
I am currently writing a fanfiction called Battle Scars.

I'm 14, a self-confessed Directioner, and I LOVE TO SING.
Like, seriously.
Forget singing in the shower.
I sing anywhere and everywhere.


Addicted to my laptop.
Hate Justin Beiber
Love Katy Perry.


You may be wondering why I like One Direction.
Well, let's put it this way. 
I am told on a daily basis that i did not have a beautiful face, and that i was ugly.
Before WMYB was released, I would have agreed with them.
You could'nt tell that i had no self esteem, because at eight years old even I knew how to fake a smile. I pretended nothing touched me, but even just a simple word shook me to my core.
and now, I'm reclaiming my lost childhood, and acting like an eight-year old who loves the way she looks.
I'll always be six years behind in my maturity because of it.
But at least I'll be making up for what childhood i lost.'

Thank you, one direction.

And now, introducing the best GIF ever made:

Battle Scars
Chapter 26
Liam's P.O.V.


Ruby… adopted? And just now she finds out about this?
Well that’s a bit stressful!
“Ruby, I-“
“I’m going to my sister’s.”
“You have a sister?”
“Yeah. Franchesca Croft. Newsgirl…?”
“Oh, yeah! Franchesca!”
“I’m off.”
So she goes out the trailer.
“I’d just leave her be.” Says Alaska. “If she’s not back by 2:00, then we go look for her.”
“Really?”
“Yep.”
 
Ruby’s P.O.V.

Walking to my sister’s, just around the block, I get an incoming call from Chad.
“Hey, baby.”
“Hey. Um, listen, I just found out-“
“I have BIG NEWS! I won the skateboarding tournament!”
“Um, that’s great, but-“
“I won it even though I almost fell off. I have heeeeeaps of Skill.”
“Chad! Listen!”
“Okay, babe, gotz to go.”
And just like that the phone call ended. He's just hyper about his win. He'll pay attention later.
So I walk down my sister’s cobblestone path, up to her brick house and marron door.
I ring the doorbell.
Is… is that my sister?
She’s pwetty!
“Ruby! Good to see you!”
“Yes, it is good to see you.”
“Oh ruby. There’s something wrong is’nt there?”
“Yes. I just found out I was adopted.”
“I found that out when I was your age. I know exactly how you feel.”
"So we're not related."
"We are - we were adopted from the same family."
At least there's some family here.
Incoming text from Liam,
I collapse on her shoulder, crying.
“And just when my career begins to take off.”

Chapter 25
Ruby’s P.O.V.
THE NEXT DAY

 
I wake up in the trailer. What time is it? I look at my clock.
3AM.
I look out my window, and…
Oh my god.
THE DIRECTIONERS HATH FOUND THE TRAILER.
I duck my head down again and think of a way to solve this problem.
I peek up, so that you can only see my eyes. There’s a bunch of them right beside the door, one about to turn the handle. The handle is’nt locked, so I run down and try to stop it.
God she’s good.
She’s gonna win.
So I try something else.
I open the door, and go out.
“Girls girls girls. What are you doing?”
“OH CARROTS! RUBY CROFT! Ummm… hi?”
“One Direction needs their sleep. Were you at the concert last night? Or are you going to go to one of the other two?”
“We did’nt get tickets…”
“So we’re stalking them instead!”
“Directioner thinking. Well done. Okay, come in. But be very, VERY quiet. Don’t make a noise. And you’re sitting on the floor. One noise, and you’re out. Kapesh?”
‘Kapesh.”
So I open the door. They look in – wonderstruck.
I can see them siliently fangirling.
I lead them into the bathroom.
“Stay here for the night. You have everything you need – a toilet, in other words – and you’re not allowed to flush it.”
I shut the bathroom, and go back to bed.
 
Harry’s P.O.V.
Yawn. 6:30 AM.
Toilet stop.
So I open the bathroom door.
“OH MY GOD IT’S HARRY!”
“How did you get in my bathroom….?”
Then one of them says:
“We have Tacos.”
I think about it.
“Okay. You guys stay.”
TWO HOURS LATER
“Why did you let them in, Ruby?” asked Louis – in a non-threatining way.
“They showed Directioner Thinking. Directioner Thinking is rewarded if I see a good demonstration!”
The five girls are fidgeting in the corner.
“Next time that happens, give them tickets instead please.”
“Okay.”
Alaska slaps her on the back of the head.
“Ow!”
“You could’nt have given them tickets.”
“It would take an entire trip across the trailer – and back. Somebody would have woken up.”
“Well… ugh, okay.”
Ruby’s phone beeps.
She checks the message…. And goes ghostly white.
“What’s wrong… Rubes?”
She looks up.
“I was adopted.”

Author's note: Ooooh, this plot twist tasted spicy. Let's see what's for dessert in the next chapter.

Chapter 24
Alaska's P.O.V.
30 MINNIT LATER:



“Let me get my head around this. You’re dating… your high-school bully.”
“Yep.”
“Because he stalks you…”
“You make it sound like it is bad!”
“It IS bad, Ruby!”
“Well, I suppose so. But I’m going to give him a trial.”
In the corner I notice Payne looking really really sad.
I was right.
Liby Crane is going to form.
Just as soon as I get Rad Cringram out the way.
“Just… don’t tell the public, okay?”
“Well, I suppose.”
“Okay.”
I go over to Ruby and mine’s room and think of ways I can split them up.
Hey, don’t judge me. I don’t want Ruby feeling any worse than she already does.
 
Zayn’s P.O.V.
 
I haven’t talked to the girls that much, but they seem really nice. Wrapped up in talent.
Alaska’s in a constant sass battle with Louis. At some point or other Louis is going to challenge a duel, I reckon. Louis will win though – piece of pudding. And now it’s time for the fans to come in for the meet and greets. Liam staggers through the door just in time for the first three to come in.
It’s the general routine, they ask us questions, get our autograph, and  then ask… er…. Well, here’s an example.
“Can I lick you?”
It’s a little weird, but we politely decline.
And then a girl comes through the door with shimmering green eyes, and straight brown hair.
“Hi, I’m Bailey. Bailey Kates.”
I can see Louis’s eyes light up.
“Hey, Bailey. How are you?”
“Not good, I’m afraid. I’m about to start Chemo next week.”
“Oh. My. God.” He says.
Well…. Who can’t see where this is going.
If you can’t, it’s going in the directon of Bailou Katenson.
Battle Scars
Chapter 22
Ruby’s P.O.V.



‘And now it’s time……’ I start
‘For a time warp.’ Finishes Alaska.
‘But to be warped, we need a couple of our friends. More specifically…. Five friends.’
‘Yes…. INTRODUCING LOUIS TOMLINSON!’
A spotlight shines on Louis, who is standing centre stage.
‘NIALL HORAN!’
The spotlight shines on Niall, standing to our left, right at the front.
‘LIAM PAYNE!’
Liam appears, opposite to Niall.
‘ZAYN MALIK!’
Zayn has a spotlight shined on him, standing about half-way between Niall and Louis
‘AND HARRY STYLES!’
As soon as Harry’s spotlight is shined, the backing track starts.
And after Harry, Liam, Niall, Zayn, Alaska and I drop to the floor, Louis starts for us.
Well, there’s an easier way to explain this. I’m Magenta, Alaska’s Columbia, Louis is RiffRaff, Niall is Brad, and the narrator guy is Liam. Zayn and Harry don’t get any solos, simply for effect.
After we drop to the floor again for the end of the song, we run off stage blowing kisses and saying ‘Thank You London!’ ect, ect.
We just preformed. It’s awesome, the adrenaline it gives you.
So we go back to our dressing rooms, the concert’s being streamed into them, so we can hear everything.
After C’mon C’mon they play Little Things.
Maybe I am beautiful.
No, I’m not. I’m a piece of poop.
But Liam’s voice is so convincing… I might just be.
Just.
So I text my sister.
Yeah, I have a sister.
Franchesca. She’s a reporter for London’s channel 5 news.
That’s why I haven’t mentioned her – she lives all the way out here.
‘Oi! Franchesca!’
‘yea ruby?’
‘Just finished the first concert!’
‘good 4 u.’
‘I was thinking… could I see you at some point tomorrow?’
‘sure, lil sis. come over at 12.’
‘Sweet as. Buh-Bye!’
‘l8rs.’

Teaser: 'I knew you were stalking me. But following me to London? That's just creepy.'

Chapter 21
Alaska’s P.O.V.



And now it’s time for a little broadway classic.
All That Jazz.
I love this song. Rubes is playing piano for the start bit – my bit – and then the piano guy comes and takes her place when it’s her turn to sing and dance. If you’ve seen the Glee version (Ruby forced me to watch it when we were choosing songs – and I thought it was pretty cool) I’m Cassie and she’s Rachel. And we are duelling.
And with a quick glimpse to the side, I notice that the 1D boys are all ready to go.
In what seems like not much time at all, ATJ has finished, and now, it’s question time.
‘Hello London!’ says Ruby
‘We’re here to answer a couple of questions. I notice we’re answering one from Ophelia Chesaway in seat H48?’
Opehelia is jumping up and down, waving and screaming.
‘What was your question?’
‘Liam tweeted just before you finished Oath that he’s ditched Danielle – do you suppose it was for one of you two?’
‘He what?’ exclaims Ruby.
‘Well, it looks like Ruby’s got some game then. Barely even knows Liam Payne, and yet he’s fallen flat on his face for her.’
‘No no no, Liam barely knows me. I’m pretty sure it can’t be me. It could – but he could have any one of you beautiful girls out there.’
‘Phhht. Yeah, right. I have an AWESOME potential romance sensor – and it’s beeping nonstop, it’s telling me: ‘LIBY CRANE’S GOING TO FORM! LIBY CRANE’S GOING TO FORM!’’
“Well, it must be broken then. And that’s our only answer for the day!”
There’s a pause as the lights go down, we’re about to sing Born This Way. And like the Glee cast, we’ve made some shirts. So we chuck them overtop our dresses, and chuck on a jacket after that.
And then the backing track starts.
My shirt says: ‘DMT.’
Ruby’s shirt says: ‘Dixpraxic’
And the audience cheers when we take off our jackets – they’re probably happy to know we’ve got some stuff wrong with us too.
And then I spot Bailey.
Bailey’s smiling like a Cheshire cat with pride.
But I can only just tell.
And just like that: the last number is about to be preformed. This is the number we’re collaborating with 1D on.
Because it’s too hard to do with just two people.
Time Warp – from the rocky horror picture show.

Alaska’s P.O.V.



30 MINUTES LATER
 
Full house.
Well, they are here to see One Direction, so…
Not really surprised.
And then, Liam, first out of makeup for the boys, and in the wings, says:
‘Ready for your first concert?’
‘I am now, thanks to the advice Britanny gave me.’ Says Rubes.
‘What did she tell you?’
‘The same amount of people who hate you will love you  - If not more.’
‘I can safely say that’s true.’
Freddy pops by.
‘Alaska, get to your side of the stage. We’re all go in one minute.’
Oh, yeah. We’re entering from opposite sides. I run for my life.
The backing track for Oath by Cher Lloyd starts. I walk on, and start the song.
Ruby then enters, on the line ‘Laughing so danm hard’
 
Liam’s P.O.V.
 
Well, I did’nt expect this song out of them, but they’re pulling it off. After the chorus, it’s Ruby’s turn to sing solo.
‘I know I drive you crazy –hm, sometimes. I know I call you lazy – and that’s most times.’
There’s something special about Ruby – but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
‘But you complete me – and that’s no lie’
I’ve almost got it…
‘You are my tuxedo – and I’m your bowtie’
The last time i felt this way was when i met Danielle. I don't feel that way about her now - she's so protective.
So I text her.
‘Dannielle – I’m afraid I have to leave you. Do not reply to this text to protest, just accept the inevitable. I’ve found someone else.’
And now, I tweet our breakup to the world. Because I don’t want people to think we’re together when we’re not.
And by this time, Oath is finished. So now I’m free to watch Ruby – my future Girlfriend. Well, as soon as this concert’s over she will be mine. I know this; she did admit on Ellen that she had it in for me.

Ruby’s P.O.V.


 
“And this is our makeup artist, Britanny.” Says the Top Techie, Freddy, on our little tour of where to go and who we need to know.
“Hello girls!” says Britanny.
“And, that’s all. You may go look at –and put on - your dresses, then come back and get your makeup done. About ten minutes after your makeup and hair is done, you will need to go on stage.”
“Yes, Freddy.”
“Good luck!”
And then he runs away, he has lots to do.
And we run to our dressing rooms, and open our bags.
They’re absolutely gorgeous, they’re white, and flowy, and oh my gosh, these ballet flats are awesome too! We put them on,  and we look INCREDIBLE. I race back to Britanny, to get my hair done.
‘Hi, Ruby.’
‘Hey!’
‘Tell me, what’s it like in New Zealand? I’ve been meaning to go there, but never have got round to it.’
‘Well, it’s incredible. It has cute as native species, it’s got the best scenery ever, and we have THE best icecream anywhere – Kapiti. We have a easy-going attitude – We call it ‘She’ll be right.’ And we have odd-sounding words like ‘Munted’ – it means broken, and we are home to the ‘Nek Minnit’ video, the fifth largest city in the world, Dunedin, Pinapple Lumps, and the electric fence. NZ is also the queen of the beach.’
By the time I finished that, Britanny had already done my hair in the best fishtail plait ever.
And now she’s started on my makeup.
‘Sounds awesome!’
‘It is awesome. It’s like, the opposite of British weather.’
‘And that tops them all.’ She says, while applying my lip gloss.
‘If I had gotten the gig for doing makeup for the lads on the UAN tour, I would have been to New Zealand. But somebody else got the gig. They did’nt do it this time because they could’nt handle the stress.’
And by this time she’s placing the finishing touch: Mascara.
She’s fast.
‘I’m just a bit worried. Will that crowd hate me? Will they throw rotten tomatoes?’
‘No, they won’t throw fruit at you. Remember, the same amount of people who hate you, will love you – if not more.’
‘Alright.’
And now I’m out the chair, sitting in the wings. I take a sneak peek out the side.
Full house.

Chapter 18
Alaska’s P.O.V.



We get out at the venue. Big place, could seat around 3,000 people. We walk into the door labelled ‘Backstage’. I open the door. I find a hall, with individual dressing rooms for each of the lads, and then I spot our two dressing rooms. We take a look in them. There’s two bags with a label, which say ‘Do Not Open – Dress And Shoes.”
So we walk out of our dressing rooms, since we could’nt see our dresses and shoes, so we wander along, into sidestage, to find Harry.
“Hey!” I say, walking along.
He turns around.
“Hey! The soundcheck’s about to start, if you want to see it.”
“Of course we do!”
“Well then, get in your seats.”
“Mkay!”
So we sit in two seats, right at the centre of the front row. It’s now 5:15, and I notice that there’s a group of thirty fangirls coming in – they must have won a competition at a radio station or something to see the soundcheck. So there’s a lot of screaming going on, and we’re staring at them, and then one of them, she appeared to be 19, pointed us out. We wave at them. And then they come charging down to the front to meet us.
We’re bomabarded with a sea of introductions and questions.
“Woah! One at a time, girls.”
The one who pointed us out goes first.
“Hi, I’m Bailey. I watched your video a thousand times, and I absolutely love you guys and One Direction.”
“Hi, Bailey!” we say simuletaneously. “Thank you for watching the video, without each and every single one of those views we would’nt be here today!” I say.
“Can I tell you something?”
“Sure, anything!” says Rubes.
“I’m about to start chemo next week… and two of the things of my bucket list are to see you guys and One Direction in person. Since a concert is the closest thing I’ll ever get to meeting One Direction, that’s why I’m here. It’s an added bonus that you just happen to be right here, and I actually get to talk to you. ”
By now, I had tears in my eyes. And after my high school career of being popular and tough-as-nails, hardly anything made me cry.
Rubes appeared to be tougher than me, though. She appeared to be as normal, listening patiently.
“Would you like to hear us sing?” she offers. “Just the chorus of Kiss You though, because if I know anything about concerts, it’s that the soundcheck will indeed be starting soon.”
“Yes!” she says, excitement flushing through her face.
And we sing! She ends up smiling ear to ear, by the end of the chorus. Good timing on our part, because as soon as we finish, the track to C’mon C’mon started.
“Thank you.” She whispers.
“You’re very welcome sweetie.”
The soundcheck was VERY entertaining.
And then the techies call us backstage for makeup and dress.
But not before I give Bailey a backstage pass.

Chapter 17
Ruby’s P.O.V.



I just remembered how much I hate international flights. You spend about five or six hours on a plane, bored, and surviving ONLY on lollies. Then you’re off the plane, and you think you’re off the hook, you have to go through customs. Ugh. I could use a Pineapple Lump by now. Or some L&P. Or just something Kiwi.
They should invent a Pavlova lollie….
The Mini-Pav.
Yeah.
I kept myself entertained for ten minutes, simply by keeping a malteser on my tounge, un chewed, for ten minutes.
Not bad! And when we finally land in Bournemouth, England, we get off the plane to a warm welcome of airport-goers. We signed roughly 200 autographs and my fingers got tired, so we got in the cab.
England is HEAPS different from New Zealand. And from the USA.
“Where to?” asks the driver.
“Corpthorne Hotel.” I say in my kiwi accent.
“That’ll be 8.70 £.”
I shell out.
“Thank you.” He grunts.
“Wonder what your first concert’ll be like! We’ll problably have our makeup done by a professional.”
“And we get to see the soundcheck!”
“Hold on. Text from Liam.”
“Hello lovelies. You need to be at the concert hall at 5.PM, BTW. Well, If you want to see the soundcheck, that is.” It reads.
Holy shoot! That’s in an hour!
“You have Liam’s phone number?”
“Yep.”
“Wow! You got game!”
“No, not like that. For communication purposes. Plus, he’s with Danielle.”
“Yeah, Right.”
And at that exact moment, we pulled up at the hotel.
It looked great.
We checked in.
“Room 963, it’s on floor 14.”
Well, spectacular view, nice beds. OOOOH, COMPIMENTARY CHOCOLATES! And they’re peppermint, too!
“Now, we have to change. We need to be there in ½ an hour – and the drive takes about five minutes according to Google.”
“Holy Halo! Okay, umm, what to wear, what to wear…” mutters Alaska
So I change into my fave pair of denim shorts, one that fades from white to blue, and a white shirt with ‘Secret Destiny’ on it, and also a fluro yellow deinim jacket, like the one I wore in the video.
She changes into some leather boots, some sparkling black denim shorts, and a basic white tee.
“Let’s go!”
So, we get in another cab, and drive.
