Wake Me Up (Ed Sheeran Fan Fiction
Olivia's life is normal... and boring. All that changes when a certain ginger haired singer walks into her families store. She finds herself helping him write his next single. She didn't expect herself to start falling for him. But who can resist Ed Sheeran?
"Arggghhh" A loud moan interrupted me from reading the latest novel my favorite author had wrote.
Huffing, I slammed my precious book down on my dining room table and look up at the source of the loud groaning.
"You look terrible." I commented as my step sister slowly stumbled into our kitchen. Her usual straight blonde hair was a tangled mess on the top of her head. Her once bright green eyes were now dull, and her cheeks and nose were bright red. Kate fell into the seat beside me and laid her head down on the table.
"I'm sick." She grumbled against her arm.
"You look like it." My comment earned myself a flip of my stepsister’s favorite finger.
Being the nice person I am, I got up to pour her some orange juice. I set it down on the table and she sat up and drank it happily.
Kate and I quickly became best friends after I moved here a few years ago after my mother died. She wasn't anything like you would think step sister would be like. She is one of the sweetest girls I know. That's why when we both reached the legal age we got an apartment together. Or as she calls it, a flat.
"I feel like bloody hell." Her usual think British accent was strained from being sick.
"I know. It sucks that you have to work today."
I knew as soon as the words left my mouth I would regret them. Kate looked up at me with puppy dog eyes and her lips turned into a pout.
"Oh heck no, Kate. Josh and I are supposed to be hanging out today." I crossed my arms over my chest and shook my head at my step sister. I haven't got to see my boyfriend in over a week!
"Pleeeaaassssseeee Liv! I'll owe you big time. You don't want me getting all of our customers sick do you?" She asked while still giving me her pouty face. Dang! Why does she have to be so good at that!
"Fine." I threw my arms up in defeat and groaned. Why must I be such a push over?
Kate sighed happily and laid her head down on the table and mumbled a quick thank you.
"Yeah yeah." I gathered up my book and picked up the empty bowl of cereal I had for breakfast this morning and threw it in the sink. I'll just put that into the dishwasher after work.
"Ah, Kate?" I turned back around to see Kate passed out on the table snoring quite loudly.
"Kate!" I said a little louder as I gently shook her. My step sister moaned and lifted her head up to look up at me.
"What?" She groaned.
"Let's get you in the bed." I said while rolling my blue eyes.
All she did was nod and look at me with half dead eyes. I rolled my eyes and pulled her up out of her seat. I lead her to her bedroom and helped her get back in bed. She mumbled a small thank you and closed her eyes.
I chuckled and walked out of her room and into mine to get ready for a day of work at my dad's store.
"Hey, babe. There's been a slight change of plans." After about an hour at work I finally 'womaned up' and called my boyfriend about not getting to go on our date today. Of course the date was in an hour but what can I say? I hate telling people bad news.
I leaned against the counter and started playing with the cash register as I talked on the phone. Sometimes this store can be so dead!
I heard Josh groan on the other end of the phone.
"Seriously? You're bailing on me again? What is it this time? A One Direction cd signing?" I laughed. Aw, my boyfriend knows where my priorities are. Kidding, I'd just make him come with me if 1D did a signing!
"No! Kate's sick. I have to cover for her at the store today." I retorted while making music with the dings from the register.
"Could you please stop making the stupid register ding!" Josh snapped from the other side of the phone. My finger froze midair from the button. I sat up straighter in my seat and crossed my arms. I could tell me bailing on our date had upset him. But no need for him to get snappy at me!
"Yeah, just make sure you follow through next time we make plans. Okay?" Gah. Did I really upset him that bad? I set my elbows on the counter and rested my head in them.
"Okay Josh." He sighed but didn't say anything. I opened my mouth to say something but the ding of the door of the store opening stopped me. "Hey, I gotta go. Customer." I hung up my phone and shoved it into my pocket before the person walking in came into view.
"Hello! Welcome to Singer's Instruments! If you need anything just ask." I said in my fake happy voice. I really did not want to be here today. Sometimes I hate being a nice person. And Josh's attitude about it really isn't helping my mood.
"Sure thing." A male British accent replied back to me. Hmm, this guy kinda sounds cute. I sat up in the chair I was sitting in and unsuccessfully tried to pier over the rack of drum sticks that was clouding my view of the customer. From the sounds of his feet shuffling it sounded like he was over where the guitars were.
My curiosity quickly died down and I turned my attention to plugging up my iPod to the dock so it could be heard throughout the store. The mystery guys' humming was starting to get on my nerves so I quickly picked a song and sighed happily once the music filled the room.
"Tonight, we are young. So let's set the world on fire. We can burn brighter than the sun." I sung along quietly with Fun. and tapped my fingers along with the beat of the music.
"Tonight, we are young!" I closed my mouth quickly as soon as I heard someone else starting to sing with me. Is mystery dude really singing along with me? How embarrassing.
"You don't have to quit for me." The voice chuckled and then continued to sing along to the sweet voice of the lead singer of one of my favorite bands. Well this is awkward. Mystery guy's voice wasn't that bad though. He sounded really good actually.
After a few more minutes of the guy looking around the store I decided to get my lazy arse up and go check on him. Maybe he doesn't know what he's looking for. I pulled myself out of my seat and trudged slowly to where the boy was. I turned the corner and ran straight into mystery guy himself.
A very unattractive noise escaped my lips as I fell to the hard floor. Nice going, Olivia. I looked up to glare at the guy who made me fall but gasped instead. My blue eyes met the familiar pair of blue-green ones.
"Holy crap you're Ed Sheeran." I breathed. His lips turned up into a huge grin as he laughed at me.
"The one and only." He said and offered his hand to me. I took this little moment to look him over. His ginger hair was in its usual shaggy style. He was wearing a simple black t shirt that showed off his sleeve of tattoos that I've secretly gushed over a few times before. Before he thought I was creeping on him, I took his hand and let him help me up.
"Wow." Is the only thing that my brain could think to say. Smooth... He laughed again as a blush crept into my cheeks. Come on, Olivia! Be cool!
"So, I take you are a fan?" His pink lips were turned up into a smirk.
"I like a few of your songs." I tried to reply as coolly as possible. I crossed my arms as his smirk turned into a full grin.
"A few?" What's wrong with the other ones?" The way he poked his pink lip out in a pout made me want to swoon. Stop Olivia! You have a boyfriend! I scolded myself.
I grinned up at him and crossed my arms. "Well, I'm still waiting for that amazing love song that makes me melt."
"I've written love songs!" He defended himself. His hand was on his hip as he glared at me. Looks like I hit a nerve there.
"Yeah, sad love songs!" I replied turning away from him. I turned around and started to organize a rack of drum sticks. Might as well make myself useful!
I felt the heat from his body as he came up behind me. He put his hand on my shoulder and spun me around to face him. His light blue eyes were still furious as he spoke to me.
"It's kind of hard to write a love song if you don't have motivation, love." His British accent leaked venom as he continued to defend himself.
I rolled my eyes. "Please, I write love songs and stories all the time. You think I have to motivation?" I can't believe I'm arguing with Ed Sheeran in my dad's store. To be honest, the more I talked to the man behind the songs, the less I liked him. He seems like a douche.
I tried to turn back around but his grasped held me firmly in place. His fingers held onto my shoulder in an iron grip as he looked at me in anger.
"Of course you wouldn't. Who would want to date you?" He scoffed. He finally let go of me only to cross his arms and smirk. At this point I was getting ready to slap that stupid smirk of his face.
"You don't even know me!"
"Yeah, but from I know so far you seem like a class A snob."
"Okay pop star. Get out of my store!" I held my fists tightly to my side to keep from punching him. All my love for this guy had totally flown out the window. How dare he call me a female dog!
"Gladly." He turned around sharply and stomped toward the door. He was just about outside when I offered him one last friendly reminder.
"Don't come back!" I smiled sweetly and waved at him only to get a glare and a middle finger in return.
Who knew pop stars could be such divas!
