The boys were four songs into their set, and so far they had mostly been pranking each other. Niall and Louis had just covered Harry with silly string during his solo, and Harry had switched Liam's mic to a bedazzled one right before they sang Torn. I had put Louis's suspenders on incorrectly, so when he gave a pelvic thrust, they went flying off. The crowd seemed to be enjoying the pranks as much as we were.

"Claire, I don't know if I can do this," I told the vocal coach as the boys started the final song before our group prank.

"Of course you can!" She replied confidently. "You've got a great voice! That's why we gave you the chorus!"

"Really? Are you sure it had nothing to do with the lyrics?" I smiled. 

She grinned. 'Work out nicely doesn't it?"

"I suppose." I looked down at my outfit, immensely nervous about being in front of so many people. I was wearing a black flowy shirt that I thought did a decent job of hiding my now very prevalent bump. I had barely stepped outside in the last few weeks because it was almost impossible to disguise my stomach as anything but pregnant. 

"This is one of the first songs we recorded for our new album," Harry told the crowd, who roared as they always did whenever he spoke. "This is Everything About You!" 

Liam raised his mic to his lips, and frowned when it did nothing to magnify his voice. We took that as our cue to rush the stage. The entire backstage crew with the exception of a few of the techies stormed the stage and Paul dramatically sang the first verse to Liam. We were all running around and dancing on stage. The audience seemed delighted with the prank.

"You know I've always got your back, boy

So let me be the one you come running to, running to, r-r-running

I see it’s just a matter of fact, boy

You just call my name

I'll be coming through, coming through, I'll keep coming"

The boys were laughing hysterically, and Niall was actually on the ground with laughter. Claire slid up against Harry's side and sang the second verse, sharing her microphone with him.

"On the other side of the world, it don't matter

I'll be there in two, I'll be there in two, I'll be there in two

I still feel it every time

It's just something that you do

Now ask me why I want to"

My stomach was alive with butterflies, but I opened my mouth and let my voice soar into the microphone as I sang the chorus, sharing my microphone with Louis.

"It's everything about you, you, you

Everything that you do, do, do

From the way that we touch, baby

To the way that you kiss on me

It's everything about you, you, you 

The way you make it feel, new, new, new

Like every party is just us two

And there's nothing I could point to

It's everything about you, you, you 

Everything about you, you, you 

It's everything that you do, do, do 

It's everything about you"

I winked at Zayn from across the stage and the crowd went absolutely nuts. Katie and Samantha took the next verse together, serenading Niall very dramatically.
