“So now I just write stuff?” I frowned. After claiming I never had an email address (although Niall thought otherwise), we had created a new one and finished creating a Twitter account for me. We had used one of my photoshoot pictures for a display photo. However, I wasn’t really understanding the point of it.
Liam nodded slowly. He, Niall and I were are squished up on the huge corner sofa in the living room, which we had slowly been sinking into for the last half an hour.
“Like what?” I interrogated him, “I just don’t get the point, who am even talking to? What do I say?”
Liam sighed, and then smiled, spelling it out to me. “You can say what’s on your mind, y’know whatever you’re doing.”
“But to who?” I insisted.
Niall face-palmed for what seemed like the one hundredth time.
“I’m sorry Mr. Impatient, am I annoying you? Would you like to input your opinion?” I questioned Niall, turning away from the laptop screen and raising an eyebrow.
“No mam.” He said as he slowly shuffled away from me and pretended to watch the TV.
I rolled my eyes at Liam and repeated my question; “Who am I talking to?”
“The people that will follow you, the public, your fans. Everyone.” He replied.
I shook my head, not believing what he had just said. Fans? No, there couldn’t be.
“What are you going on about Liam, I don’t have fans! There has been one live show! One!” I exclaimed, accentuating my point by holding up my index finger and waggling it in his face.
“Oh, really? Nice to see your appreciation for your support.” he spoke as he went to a search engine and typed in ‘Anna Jones Fans’. Hundreds of results appeared of Facebook and Twitter pages for fans of me.
I burst into nervous laughter, “What?! Is this rigged? What the hell! Niall, have you seen this?”
“What?” He asked, turning his face from the TV. I pointed at the laptop screen. “Oh yeah, we have fans too.” He said nonchalantly.
“How are you not freaked out about this?!” My head turned to Liam and the to Niall and then back to Liam.
“We’ve got through the freaked-out phase.” Niall shrugged.
“Plus, Simon says not to pay too much attention to the.. attention because he wants to keep us “humble”.” Liam said sadly, “I just want to meet them and hug them all, they’re the ones that will hopefully get us through to the final.”
“Well, surely you can still be “humble” whilst acknowledging that you have fans?” I suggested.
“I AM humble, I don’t need to pretend. ALL of us are.” He responded.
I smile, “I know you are, Liam. You do what YOU think is correct.”
“Not exactly a good idea with Simon as our mentor, we don’t have the lovely, beautiful, empowering Cheryl Cole, remember?” Niall input.
“You’re very snarky today, Niall. Well, sucks to be you, you get the best contact in the entire music and showbiz industry.” I laughed, doing jazz hands.
With my hands free of the laptop Niall grabbed it.
“HEY!” I watched as his fingers scramble on the keyboard, tweeting from my account.
“hey guys, dis is tha rell me annie jones i promise..?” I read aloud, “Wow, great spelling!”
I snatched the laptop back from him and deleted the tweet, typing instead: ‘Hi guys, this my new twitter account, it’s the real me. Promise!’
“That’s exactly what I wrote!” Niall declared. I rolled my eyes again.
“But how does that prove that it’s the real me?” I asked Liam.
“Look.” Niall said. So I looked at him. He was scribbling on a piece of paper in a thick black marker. “Hold this.” He shoved the paper into my hands.
He reached over the keyboard at clicked on the webcam.
“Oh!” I said realising what he was doing.
The paper said: “It’s the real Annie! @AnnaJones”
I held up the paper and smiled, as Niall and Liam crowded into the shot pulling stupid faces and pointing at me. I laughed as looked at the image on the screen.
“You guys are ridiculous.” I snorted whilst I added the photo to my tweet and posted it. “YAY! My first tweet!!”
“Oh my god! FINALLY!” Niall and Liam shouted in sync.
“What’s going on?” Harry asked. Seeming to appear out of nowhere in only a towel, his hair flattened by water.
“It’s a long story.” Liam and I laughed.
“An entire NOVEL” Niall added.
Hey guys, I finally updated!:) Sorry for all the dialogue, but I felt I needed to write about this for some reason. TTYL xox
