"one direction everybody! Here for you today with Ready To Run!!"

The crowd went wild and Louis felt faint. He had just had another line and a shot of vodka. But this wasn't because of that. No, he knew what this was. He was having anxiety...again.

"There's a lightning in your eyes I can't deny
Then there's me inside a sinking boat, running out of time
Without you I'll never make it out alive
But I know, yes I know we'll be alright"

Harry sang his bit why Louis trued to calm himself down. Normally Harry would calm him down, but that's not happened for ages. He's not had one of these anxiety things in years.

"There's a devil in your smile that's chasing me
And every time I turn around it's only gaining speed
There's a moment when you finally realize
There's no way you can change the rolling tide
But I know, yes I know that I'll be fine"

Louis always related to this bit. Harry had a devil in his smile that would always be with Louis. And when Harry was with him he knew he would be fine. But Harry's not with him, so he's not going to be fine.

"This time I'm ready to run
Escape from the city and follow the sun
'Cause I wanna be yours
'Cause you wanna be mine
I don't wanna get lost in the dark of the night
This time I'm ready to run
Wherever you are is the place I belong
'Cause I wanna be free
And I wanna be young
I'll never look back now I'm ready to run
I'm ready to run"

Louis sang with the boys. Once the chorus had ended he started breathing heavily but subtly. The only ones that seemed to notice was Harry and Zayn, the two closest to him.

"There's a future in my life I can't foresee
Unless of course I stay on course
And keep you next to me"

Harry lent over to Louis and whispered "you alright?"

"There will always be the kind that criticize
But I know, yes I know we'll be alright"

"We're not alright though" Louis whispered back, no answering Harry's question. Harry never liked it when Louis didn't answer him, so he made a mental note to bug Louis about it later. But for now they had to sing.

"This time I'm ready to run
Escape from the city and follow the sun
'Cause I wanna be yours
'Cause you wanna be mine
I don't wanna get lost in the dark of the night
This time I'm ready to run
Wherever you are is the place I belong
'Cause I wanna be free
And I wanna be young
I'll never look back now I'm ready to run"

Louis' breathing steadied and he could sing properly. You know when he's singing properly because angels wake.

"This time I'm ready to ruuuuunnnnnn
I'll give everything that I got for your looooove"

Zayn did his high note and the crowd practically died.

"This time I'm ready to run
Escape from the city and follow the sun"

Harry looked at Louis singing this bit. Louis was the sun, the light in his life, and he was stupid enough to throw it away. All because it was "easier" for them. He was ready to run this time, ready to chase Louis, and ready to win him back.

"'Cause I wanna be yours
'Cause you wanna be mine
I don't wanna get lost in the dark of the night
This time I'm ready to run
Wherever you are is the place I belong
'Cause I wanna be free
And I wanna be young
I'll never look back now I'm ready to run"

Louis and Harry sang this bit to one another without realizing. They both wanted each other back, they wanted to be each other's again. They wanted to be free and they wanted to be young again.

The lights went out and the boys walked off...
