It was a freezing cold day and me Jess and Jess got there way too early. We had to queue up for like, 5 hours in the snow. It was getting to the point where we wanted to go home cause none of us had any winter clothing on and it was getting ridiculous but it was for the boys so we decided to stay. They were already 45 minutes late but everyone was getting excited. Every van that went past we thought was them. Of course it wasn’t. When they finally arrived everyone just screamed. Including me. Then I saw them walk into the shop and I just broke down in tears. I couldn’t breathe or anything. As we got closer and closer to the door the anticipation was just taking over. I could see Jays hair over the queue and I was going ‘asddfghjkl’. It was our turn to go in the door. As we walked past the security guard went ‘you can have pictures of, but not with’ and that just made us annoyed. But, we were going to meet them anyway so that was enough. We got put into this other queue where we could actually hear them and see them properly at the table. A woman was stood at the side. I think she worked at the shop, she said ‘So who you having your picture with girls?!’ and we were like.. wut? I thought we wern’t allowed pictures? But before we could say anything it was our turn at the table! AHHH! Siva was first. I gave him a smile and he went ‘hey you alright? how long you been here for?’ I swear to got i forgot what words are. ‘A-a-a few hours’ was all that came out. He went ‘aww, thanks for coming darlin” signed my book and I had to move on. Max and Tom were next. Hungover and tired were understatements. ‘Thank you so much’ was all I said to them as they smiled and signed my book. I looked to see who was sat next to Tom. It was Jay. I couldn’t explain what I was thinking, feeling, anything. I put my arms out for a hug and he reached over. I screamed a little bit in his ear. oops.
Jay: ‘hey babe, your shaking? you okay?’
Jay: ‘you cold?’
Me: ‘no, im nervous’
Jay: ‘why you nervous?’ (btw, still mid-hug)
Me: ‘cause I love you SO much!’
Jay: ‘ahahaha! (YES I MADE HIM LAUGH OMG :D)
Me: ‘please can I have a picture?’
Jay: ‘sure! *kisses NEAR the lips*’
Man: ‘sorry, no pictures’ *DRAGS ME AWAY*
Jay: ‘i’m so sorry! *waves goodbye*
I didn’t even meet Nath:( but that was basically it:)
I went with Me, Jess, Jess, Amiie and Sheffi. We all had naughty banners.
Me - ‘Jay, show me your lizard’
Jess w - ‘I’d Thomas, Anthony, Parker that!’
Jess S.C - ‘I can bring a whole new meaning to Siva Fever’
Sheffi - ‘Nath, you can score with me’
Amiie - ‘Max, my uterus will never be the same ill be glad you came!’ ..i know.
We got to Burnley train station and just followed all the people to where ever the football ground was. We got in (after queueing up for 2 hours) and got our front row seats. As it was staring, loads of celebs we didn’t know came out to the pitch. Then, the boys came out. AHHHH! It was so good. I didn’t even notice until I heard a million screams! They looked so UNF. They were practicing for ages! I was holding my banner kind of up, just lazily and staring at Jay. As you do. And he looked over and stretched his arm out with his lizard tattoo. Ngl, I DIED. I mouthed the words ‘NOO THE OTHER LIZARD’ and he pointed at his crotch, but his lip and nodded his head. OMFG. I was screaminggg. He had to go so he laughed at me and ran off. Oh wow. After a while, Tom was near us making his way through the masses of people there, signing things and having pictures. He came over to us and I was shaking!
Me: *hugs, he kisses me on the cheek* hey Tom!
Tom: ‘Hey bebs, you alright?’
Me: ‘Yeah thanks, can I have a picture?’
Tom: ‘sure bebs!’ *has picture*
Me: ‘Thank youu!’
Tom: ‘No problem bebs!’
AHHHHH. Then Tom’s mum came over and Tom went ‘Guys, this is my mum!’ and Me and Amiie were like ‘AHHH HI TOMS MUMMM!’ We went abit mental. It was time for Tom to go and play so we said bye to him. Later on, Jess S.C was holding her Siva banner up, and Siva looked over and I swear to god it took him about 2 years to read it. FINALLY he read it and put his thumbs up at his and smiled. We saw that Nathan was coming over and I had to get my friend Ashleigh to speak to him, cause she had something important to say. Finally he came over and I wasn’t even interested in a picture or anything, I just needed him to speak to Ash. He got the phone and started the conversation off with ‘what do you want?’ aww Nath, always the sweet one. He couldn’t hear her properly so he removed the phone from his ear and went ‘what she trying to say?’ and I just went ‘Nath, just try and listen, its important.’ He actually removed himself from all the fans and stood away from everyone JUST to talk to Ash on the phone. He genuinely looked like he was about to cry. He was so emotional. He came back over and gave the phone back to be and gave me a weak smile. I wanted to cry there and then. I mouthed ‘Thank you’ to him. He went over to Amiie and he asked her to sign her banner.
Nath: ‘Turn it over, what does it say?’
Amiie: ‘I don’t wanna…’
Amiie: ‘Cause I dont wanna..’
Nath: ‘Turn it over.’
This went on for about 4 days until she gave in and turned it over. Nath read it, and went ‘You, need to sort your life out’ he went to draw on Amiie’s nose in permanent marker. It was hilarious. All the games were finished so we went round the back to try and meet them. The doors were open to we could see the staircase they came down. In true Jay style, Jay, slid down the banister. Mmkay! #swag. Siva came out and he came over to us. It was a mad rush. All I could really do was hug him and ask for a picture so thats what I got. He smelt, amazing. All the boys jumped in the car but I hadn’t met Jay yet. Big Kev was stood close to us so I went ‘KEV, can you get Jay for me? Please?’ and he just looked and went ‘Urm, no.’ Rude.
me and nath ^ you can see his eyebrow past my ginger hair.
I’ve never been so rushed in my life. Me and Jess had it in our heads that we finished college at 4, which meant we couldn’t make it to preston in time. We found out we finished at 3 and we went mental. We were so excited we were on the phones to our mums trying to sort out getting there in time. College finished and we got on the train to Rock FM. We looked a mess. Horrible hair, no makeup, ew. We got to Preston and I had directions on my phone but they were sending us the wrong way. We asked numerous people on the way and they finally got us to Rock FM. It was in this church which was weird. We waited at the gates where everyone seemed to be. Two girls walked up to us (they got there after us) and said ‘Have the Wanted been yet?’ and we went ‘Nope, we just got here’ and we talked with them for ages, Laura and Alice. We all decided to go and wait near the front door of Rock FM. We waited for a while until someone came out and said ‘I’m so sorry guys but The Wanted can’t make it today, they are stuck in traffic’. We nearly cried. ‘Sorry, I lied, they will be here.’ He said while on the phone to Big Kev. Never been so thrilled in my life. Finally the boys arrived but got rushed in for their interview. We waited about half an hour chatting to Martin and Big Kev then they showed up. In the masses of crowds I saw Molly who I recognised from Twitter and she recognised me too. We hugged and she went ‘Right, we need to get Jay for you’. We were on a mission. Jess tagged along behind with the camera. Finally I got Jay’s attention.
Jay: ‘Hey, you okay?’
Me: ‘Im nervouss!’ (just like the booksigning i know)..
Me: ‘Cause I love you loadssss’
Jay: ‘Awww, *hugs, kiss on cheek*’ AHHH!
Me: ‘Can I have a picture?’
Molly: ‘Jay, over here! look this way’ ahah!
Me: *has picture* ‘Thank youu! Y’know Jay, you got me dragged away at a book signing!’
Jay: ‘I did?’
Me: ‘Yeah, you tweeted me about it too!’
Jay: ‘How did I get you dragged away?!’
Me: ‘you hugged me for too long…’
Jay: ‘AHAHAHHAA what? was it like this? *mimics long hug*’
Me: ‘yeahh! hahaha!’
I got my picture with Jay! SCORE. And I confronted him about getting me dragged away! Hehe. We saw that Tom had about 10 girls round him so we went over to him. We waited for a while until he was free and Jess asked for a picture so I took it. I then said ‘Tom, I think you should snog her’ and he went ‘Come ‘ere then babes! Give us a kiss’ and he kissed her on the lipsss! It was so cute to see her cry in happiness. All the boys got taken away after that so we didn’t see any of the other boys. Last minute plans are the best though.
