We all believe in happiness. We all have moments of sadness, but we always have a smile. Emma didn't believe it. She no longer believed in love, trust and she couldn't face men. But do you think a celebrity with millions of fans would come to change her life? But when the past resurfaces, everything can take another turn. _____-__this is my story.
I ran terrified and in tears. I didn't know where to go but all I could do was flee. And then I saw this dark alley and I decided to hide behind a garbage bag. I sat on the dirty floor, I put my arms around my legs and I cried more. It was impossible, I'm in a nightmare. Pinch me, I must surely dream. He was so perfect for me, he was the perfect man. Why he did this to me? I don't understand. I thought he respected my choices, but now everything has changed. I will never want to see him. What should I do? I felt weak and helpless. I felt my eyes getting tired. So I put my head on the trash bag and I fell asleep for a few minutes. Suddenly I felt a breath touching my face. My eyes opened and he was in front of me. Too late, I wanted to scream but he had already put his hand on my mouth. He looked at me with evil eyes and he whispered in my ear :
« You will never see your family again, you'll stay with me. »
I sobbed and .. my alarm clock rang. ONLY SHIT, I can't believe. I always make this nightmare. I touched my face and I felt tears on it. I still cry for this bad memory. It haunts me. If only I could forget everything and have a normal life but it's impossible .. My life is like that and always will be.
I turned my head to my clock to watch the time. It was half past 8. Wait a minute, it's Saturday. WHY DOES MY ALARM CLOCK RINGS AT 8:30AM WHILE IT'S SATURDAY. I growled and then, when I remembered why my alarm clock went off early, my sister jumped like a crazy on my bed and screamed :
« EMMA WAKE UP! IT'S THE 23TH DECEMBER! IS THE BIG DAY! THE CONCERT OF ONE DIRECTION TODAY! »
I took my bag and put it on my face to avoid the unbearable screams of my twin sister, Jessica. I think I've never seen a girl as dedicated to a boys band. You should see her room. It should be called the sect of 1D. There are posters everywhere, she knows the songs on the album by heart, in short, you understand. I wasn't a fan. I liked some of their songs but otherwise, nothing about them attracted me. I decided to accompany my sister to make her happy, even if it was a bit reluctantly. Through a radio competition, she won two VIP passes to meet the boys in backstages. I remember that day, she kept crying for joy. I didn't want to go. Supporting girls hysterical and shouting for single guys, I think it's ridiculous. But I love my sister and I don't want to disappoint her.
My sister is someone with whom we laugh all the time. She spends her time telling jokes and set the mood in each place she goes. She can also be serious. Even though we are twins, people differentiate us easily. Jessica has curly brown hair and green eyes. Unlike her, I have straight brown hair with fringe and blue eyes. About our love lives, they are equal. Jessica and I have no boyfriends and we think it's better this way. We're 17 years old, we have a different view of life. With hard blows, we grew up. Our parents consider us as adults today.
We decided to get up to go downstairs to take our breakfast. Our parents were still asleep so we tried to make as little noise as possible. After breakfast, we went upstairs and began to get dressed.
As we were in the winter season, we had to dress warmly. I put my long wool sweater, black leggings and my ugg's. I just put mascara and I curled my hair even though I knew that all my curls will disappear. I put my gloves and my hat. I was ready. I decided to see if my sister was also ready. Returning to her room, she walked through the door. My sister was very beautiful, I love her fashion style. She was wearing a dark blue hoodie and a black vest over it. A black slim and also uggs's like me. I smiled when I noticed she had straightened her hair. She took her camera and I did the same in case her camera would have no battery. She checked if she had taken everything and finally we left the house. It was almost 11:00am, we decided to do some shopping to pass time. We went to "Hollister." I didn't want to try on clothes. Jessica bought two sweaters and we left again. We also passed by a bakery and bought two sandwiches to eat on the way. We stayed at the park around 2:00pm and we continued our way to the O2 Apollo Manchester. Arrived at the Arena, there were about 200 people. The door opening was at 19:00. The day will be long ..
At 7:00pm, there was a huge crowd. I would bet that there are over 30,000 people. People were stuck against each other and tried to warm despite that the breeze was blowing outside. The girls sang, shouted, waved and me .. no. I was frozen. I was hugely cold. Miraculously, at this time, security finally decided to open the doors. Everyone began to rush towards the entrance and I felt my sister's hand pulled mine and I was running trying to keep her pace.
I don't know how we did it but we managed to be at the first row. I had the feeling of choking because everyone was pushing me. Until the beginning of the concert, the songs went on the speakers. Everyone screamed and girls began to cry, including my sister, because they would finally see their idols. After one hour, the sound stopped and the lights went out. The screams were becoming louder and I felt faint. Suddenly, five boys appeared on the scene and we could finally say that the show had begun.
During 3 hours, the boys sang their songs or covers and some surprises to their fans. I can admit that it was a good concert. I don't regret to be come. It was weird, there was this singer with curly brown hair, at one point during "Gotta Be You", he came to the first row. he took my hand and he looked into my eyes. I felt uncomfortable because my sister had to be hugely jealous of me and also the other girls who had probably fainted. I was embarrassed. Being the center of attention, it's not my thing. But .. I don't know if it was because of his makeup or it was really natural, but his eyes and smile were beautiful. I watched carefully. It felt good when he took my hand, it's been a long time that someone hadn't taken my hand .. Then when he unleased my hand, I shook my head and I pulled myself together and I continued to watch their performance.
At the end of the concert, the boys greeted their fans and they said the same thing that all the singers tell stupidly. The curly boy looked towards my direction. Feeling his eyes land on me, I took my iPhone to pretend that I was reading my texts. Finally he looked elsewhere, seeing that I don't give him attention. And finally, they went away and the room emptied as and when. My sister was still in tears, but wiped them because she knew we were going to meet them in backstage. There was nobody in the arena now. Just me and my sister. Jessica started to worry :
« Emma, you think someone will pick us up? Have they forgotten us? » « No Jessica! They just need to prepa.. »
