Tonight is the night of the summer jam. The last school jam I'll ever attend. When I tell people that, they always think I'm over exaggerating. Right after the jam, the boys and I are hanging out at Michaels place to practice a bit for tour. Tomorrow is the day we head out to Australia for our first show. Of course I'm nervous, but they say I'll get used to it.

I walk into the bathroom with all of my necessities to start getting myself ready for the jam. I take a soothing shower to relax my muscles and get out once I'm finished. I blow dry my hair while brushing it, so it dries semi straight, and straighten it the rest of the way with a hair straighter. I do my make up to perfection, and get dressed in a summer dress with flats. I leave the bathroom ad Theresa is entering.

I sit on my bed as I scroll through my phone to pass time. I smile to myself when I see I have a text from Ashton.

Ash: Ready for the summer jam today?

Me: I'm so pumped! Hope you'll be there :)

Ash: Of course! Wouldn't miss it for the world. What song are you singing?

Me: Oh, just a little something I wrote ;)

I put my phone down when I hear the bathroom door open. Theresa has curled her hair into perfect little curls and has done her make up to perfection. She's wearing a simple outfit that consists wearing Michaels flannel jacket as well.

"I still can't believe you talked me into this." She tells me with a sigh making me laugh.

"It's so much fun! Plus this is the one where official people night be at and you have an incredible voice. I got noticed, now it's your turn." I tell her and she nods.

Theresa wants a singing career almost as bad as I do. After all the lads in 5 Seconds of Summer heard her voice, they talked her into performing at the jam hoping to get noticed by someone big, if not then they can help her just like they helped me.

I spray on perfume and grab my phone along with my bag before walking out with Theresa and heading over to the building where the jam is being held at. We sign in and wait with all of the others, as we watch more and more people pile into the building.

"Wow, there are so many people." Theresa says, her voice nervous.

"Yeah, the summer jam is the most popular. But don't worry. The spotlight shines on you so much, you barley see the audience." I say and she nods.

As the jam starts, each student performs one by one on the stage. It soon comes to mine and Theresa's turn. She takes a deep breath before walking to the stage and singing her heart out. Once she walks off I immediately hug her.

"You did so great out there. I'm so proud of you!" I say, letting go of the hug.

"Thanks. Good luck to you out there." She tells me and I nod.

"Thank you." I answer before taking my place on the stage.

"I just wanted to say, that was a beautiful song sung by my roommate Theresa. I hope it's okay with you guys if I kick it up a notch." I say and the crowd cheers.

The music starts as I move to the beat before singing.

I love it when it's loud
I love it when it's big
You could feel it in the crowd come on, bang dem sticks
I said I love it when it's loud
I love it when it's big
'Cause you could feel it in the crowd

The dumb drummer,
Sicker than the swine flu
Don't really need medication
He gotta tissue, uh
And when he bang bangs don't need to boogie but,
He might be sweeter than my, my favorite cookie
When he plays, uh, he got a hold on me
In a race yeah he's got that winnin streak, uh
And ain't nobody got a drummer like mine

I love it when it's loud

You could feel it in the crowd
Come on, bang dem sticks
I said I love it when it's loud

'Cause you could feel it in the crowd
Come on, bang dem sticks

He could do the paradiddle
With a little bit of samba
And all the girls scream "I want yo drummer's numba!"
But wait a minute? What the fuck is going on?
You here to see MTrain
Because you love my songs
But there he go again with the double stroke
And I ain't talking dirty I ain't makin no jokes nu uh nu uh
And he could play all night whatever get you hype girls whatever gets you high.

Come on and bang dem sticks
Till everybody get the drummer

I finish performing and get a standing ovation from the crowd. I smile wide looking out and around at everyone. My eyes catch the hazel ones I love so much in the back. Ashton is smiling ear to ear clapping for me. I wave and thank everyone as I walk backstage.

"Girl! Who knew you could perform like that!" Theresa says pulling me into a hug.

"I guess I just got that talent." I say with a laugh and she nods.

Ashton walks backstage and wraps his arms around me tightly.

"That was incredible. I mean absolutely incredible! And I don't know who the song was about but whoever it is, he must be pretty amazing." Ashton says with a smile making me giggle. I hit him playfully on the harm.

"Stop" I say behind my laughter.

"LACCEYYYYY!!" Three other boys yell as they run towards me and squish me into a hug.

"Whoa guys calm down." I laugh.

"You did great. Which leaves us with the question.. Will you sing that song on tour? Teach us how to play it and we'll be the band behind it. We want it on our setlist." Calum asks.

"Seriously? Yeah of course! We'll practice it tonight and tomorrow before we fly out." I answer and they all cheer in excitement.

"Well the cars running if you're ready to go." Luke says smiling.

"Yeah, absolutely. Do you wanna join us for the night?" I ask Theresa and she nods.

"You didn't even have to ask!" She say and I laugh.

We all get into the black SUV and travel to the house we're all staying at until it's time to fly to our first destination of tour.

Sorry this took so long to update and I'm sorry it's short and it sucks and I'm sorry lmao.

I did just copy and paste the lyrics for that song so if any are wrong, I'm sorry.

Credit to Meghan Trainor for writing a song called Bang Dem Sticks that I love dearly! Check it out guys!

This chapter was just a filler and I hope the last two will be longer but who knows. What happens, happens!
