Note-Chapter 20 hello Eleanor xxK
I was woken up at
two in the morning by my phone vibrating next to my head.
"nnngmmffff'ello?" I mumbled into it.
"Eleanor its 2am."
"Oh. Sorry. Time difference. I forgot. Anyway, IM COMING TO
"wha-?" my sleep hazed brain wasn't exactly making
much sense of what she was saying.
"ballet troop.....invited.....performing.....see you in a
The line was crackling until it suddenly buzzed out when I dropped
my phone. I rubbed my head where the pillow had hit me and glared
in Diannas direction, gave her the finger and tried to get back to
going on tour made me realize how unfit I was, so at 6am I got up,
pulled on leggings and an old tank top with some sneakers, grabbed
my phone and snuck out. I absolutely hated running but it was
better than panting osatiate. 'la la land' by Demi lovato
was blasting through my headphones as my feet hit the hard cement.
I wasn't sure which city we were in, but it was a maze of
streets and soon I realized I was lost. The city was starting to
wake and I really didn't want any paps to snap me in my daggy
workout year, so I punched in the familiar number.
Niall pulled up five minutes later grinning from ear to ear.
"You realize you were two streets away." he laughe.
"shut it Irish boy," I grimaced and climbed into the car.
I was suddenly conscious of my ratty hair and bright red face, as
well as my unflattering leggings and singlet. You know those girls
who exercise and look like healthy greek gods? I was not one of
i thanked Niall and went to shower. I couldn't be bothered
washing my hair, so I pulled it into a simple plait. Then, I
grabbed some light flouro pink skinny jeans a plain pale turquoise
jumper with black flats. I joined the others and we jumped in the
"Can I do your hair guys?" bec pleaded. We were doing
small gig in a club, so the stylists were less fussed about hair
and makeup, concentrating on the boys.
"NO!" we all yelled. Bec was notoriously bad at hair,
apart from messy buns. After a few braiding incidents, we refused
to let her near us with hair ties and bobby pins. The boys wandered
in, curious about the yelling. Th looked great in simple jeans and
button down shirts. We were still in trackies and, in Amy's
case, duck pajama. She probably would've performed in them if
we'd let her. "are they being mean Becky?"
Harry asked. She pouted and nodded. "you can do my hair!"
becs face lit up and Harry sat in front of her, obviously not
thinking straight. The rest of us had to then choose stage
costumes."I don't see why I can't just wear
these," Amy complained, so she went off with Liam to see if
there was anything duck related. Dianna and Zayn were acting really
weird around eachother even though i knew they kissed, but i
figired they'd sort it out. Phoebe and Louis were mucking
around in the dressing room and Harry was still obediently letting
Bec braid his hair. I looked away when she brought out the sparkly
"What about this?" I was distracted from my thoughts as
Niall thrust a gorgeous teal dress in front of me. It was quite
short, with elbow length sleeves and a cut-out back agold studded
I shoved Phoebe and Louis out of the dressing room and pulled the
dress on, attempting not to smudge my makeup. It was really pretty
but edgy to. A hand peered over my stall holding gold sparkly
heels. I laughed and put them on.
When I came out, Amy was wearing a fringed singlet with ducks on it
and highwaist black denim shorts, showing off her enviably flat
stomach, Phoebe was wearing a backless tribal print tank top and
low rider skintight jeans and army boots, Bec was wearing massive
pink heels with a shredded mint green jumper and a highwaisted
multicolour skirt and Dianna was wearing atight dark blue dress and
I looked at Harry's hair and gasped. it was braided from one
side of his head to the other with sparkly pink and purple
butterfly clips. Lou stuck her head in and gasped a Harry's
hair. It was time to go on, and Harry would be doing so with
The boys did their set first, and as we stepped onstage i saw Niall
mutter something to Harry, who turned and lood into the audience. I
followed his eyes to.....Alex. He licked his lips and gave me a
subtle wink. He held up a small cardboard sign, which I had to
squint at to read. It said 'Meet me afterwards'. Once
satisfied that I'd read it, htturned around and walked
