On any other day, I would have been excited to return to the music academy. But today was very different. Today, the famous boy band One Direction was coming to our school for two semesters. That was the entire school year. They were staying at our school in hopes to find an act to bring along with them on their upcoming summer tour. I'll admit that I'm nervous, especially since I've known two members of the band since I was a little girl. Liam Payne and Niall Horan had been my best friends growing up, but once they went out for the X-Factor, they had grown distant. Occasionally Liam would send me a text, but Niall never contacted me since he became famous. I threw on my favorite outfit, a turqoiuse blue tank top with white skinny jeans and sandals. "Kate!" my sister called. "I'm coming Grace!" I shouted back, quickly braiding my hair and grabbing my bag. "Are you ready for our first day back?" my sister Grace asked. "Of course." I said. "I just hope everyone won't be acting weird because the guys are coming back." My sister poked my stomach and said, "You're just excited to see Niall again." I shook my head, cursing at the redness I felt growing in my cheeks. "He hasn't spoken to me since the X-Factor, Grace. You know that." I said, opening the door for her. "Well, Liam and I have been texting and he's said that Niall is quite excited to see you again." Grace teased in a sing song voice. I glared at her. "No way." She holds up her phone and says, "Try me." I reach for her phone, but she runs out the door. "Grace, get back here!" I laugh, chasing after her. "No way, little sister! You'll have to wait until we see the guys at lunch!" Grace calls back. I finally catch up to her and she laughs. "Trust me. Liam wouldn't lie to me." I smirk. "That's because he loves you." I say mockingly. Grace's face turns bright red and she smacks my arm. "Ow!" I exclaim, rubbing my arm. "You deserve that!" Grace says smiling. "Tell me what Liam said!" I demand jokingly. "Never!" I'm about to reach for her phone when the bus pulls up to our stop. "Looks like you're out of time." Grace says, smiling even wider. I glare at her as she gets on the bus before me and sits with her friend Ashley. "I'll find out." I tell her, sitting behind her. "Yes you will." Grace says casually. "During lunch."
