Also, we can't forget to mention the mysterious scar on her right shoulder. The scar that, when mentioned, had the ability to reduce Ally to tears. As Ally gets closer to Liam, Niall, Zayn, and Louis, she finds herself doing things she had sworn off- letting loose, falling for someone, and revealing the scandal that she had tried to forget.

27. Perfect day?

I woke up with my head pounding incessantly. Why did I have to agree to drink? It was all catching up to me and I did not like it. I pulled the covers over my head and groaned loudly, hoping that it would in some way ease the pain- no such luck.

I heard the door quietly open and the clink of glass. Peeking over the duvet, I saw a very smiley Liam creeping into Harry and I’s room carrying a large tray. On it was two glasses of water, a bottle of medicine and some sandwiches.

“Hey beautiful,” Liam grinned when he saw the top of my head peeking out from under the covers.

On the bed beside me, Harry yawned loudly and stretched his arms above his head. “Liam, I thought we agreed that you don’t compliment me in front of Ally. She’ll get jealous.”

I ignored my cousin and sat up; the bright lights did not agree with my head and I pressed my fingers deep into my temples. “Medicine, please!” I moaned and Liam rushed over with a glass of water and two tablets.

“Here you go,” Liam said quietly as he handed me the water and pills. I took them gratefully and swallowed them without a moment’s thought. I gave a sigh of relief when the pills were done sliding down my throat. Soon, this darn headache would go away.

“I’ve got you guys some sandwiches for lunch-”

“Lunch?!” Harry exclaimed groggily.

Liam nodded. “Yeah, it’s noon. So here’s your lunch, and I’ve woken up the others and we’re going to go to a carnival!”

I groaned loudly and leaned against my headboard, covering my eyes with my hands. This dang pounding better go away soon. It felt like my head was going to explode.

“Don’t worry because it’s a Sunday and it’ll be nice and quiet there. Barely anyone will be there.” Liam reassured me and sat down on my bed.

“If no one’s out today, why do we have to be?!” Harry complained, causing me to flinch. I turned to glare at Harold.

“Oh my god- inside voices!” I whispered as loud as I could, placing a finger over my lips.

Liam turned to Harry and frowned disapprovingly. “Do you want Ally’s first full day of being eighteen to be wasted in bed? Even Niall is already up and dressed, and did you see how much he had to drink last night?”

“Niall is a mutant who has adapted to large sums of alcohol.” Harry retorts and I could hardly hold back a smile at Harry’s sassiness.

“You better wake up, or I’ll send Louis in.” Liam threatened and stood up, walking towards the door.

“Lou’s up as well?!” I cried dramatically before Harry had the chance.

“It’s everyone but you two and Zayn. And Louis is waking him up right now.”  He shrugged and gave me one last smile before leaving mine and Harry’s room.

Reluctantly I dragged myself out of bed and grabbed a sandwich from the plate, stuffing it hungrily into my mouth. It felt like I had forgotten how good food tasted.

“You eat like a pig.” Harry muttered as he watched me eat another sandwich.

“Well, you look like a pig.” I answered lamely and shuffled over to the closet. Harry laughed and leaned forward to eat his own lunch.

I grabbed a light reddish-brown long sleeve blouse and a pair of black skinny jeans, slipping them on quickly. I grabbed a random pair of shoes off the floor that which had a brown, orange and blue pattern on them. I left my crazy curls to go anywhere they pleased and just put on a swipe of gold eye shadow and mascara.

The only person I had to impress was Liam, and he loved me just the way I was. It felt amazing knowing that there was someone who loved me unconditionally. Well, there was Harry, Auntie Anne, dad and Jake, but that wasn’t quite the same.

I turned around to face Harry’s rather messy side of the closet and grabbed him a white shirt and dark skinny jeans. He could just wear those raggedy white converse he wore every day. I walked out of the closet and threw the clothes on Harry’s bed; he was slowly creeping out from his hiding place under the sheets and barely acknowledged me as I walked into the bathroom.

I gave my teeth a thorough scrub and brushed some of my curls. Before giving myself one last glance, I walked back into the bedroom to see Harry pull off his shirt. I sighed and left the room immediately. I have known him my whole life, and a shirtless Harry was my limit. Don’t get me wrong- he’s a fit lad- but I know what comes after taking the shirt off.

I hurried down the stairs and I heard the boys playing around in the living room, probably waiting for Haz and I. I was surprised to see Zayn down here also; in the short time I’ve known him, I’ve noticed how much he likes his sleep.

A grumpy Harry storms down the stairs after me and we all make our way into the car. Liam hopped in the driver’s seat and I was relieved; if anyone else had driven, we could be taken off a bridge.

The drive was short, and on the way there our moods perked up. There was no doubt in my mind that Liam went around to each individual room with lunch, a glass of water and some pills. How did I get so lucky?

Lou was literally jumping in the passenger seat when we pulled up to the field where the carnival was taking place. Niall was smiling like a madman, probably thinking about all of the sweets available. Zayn was acting very mellow, and Harry was wearily eyeing the Ferris wheel. Another thing I’ve learned about Harry is that he absolutely hates heights.

We walk the short path up to the entrance to the carnival entrance, Liam holding my hand the entire way. I could tell that Harry was trying his best to ignore us, and I hoped that one day he would get over his paranoia.

As we stepped up to the ticket booth, each of the boys pulled out their wallets.

“I didn’t know I was supposed to bring money.” I frowned, looking at Liam as he pulled me close to him.

“You don’t need money because I’m paying for you.” He grinned and Harry laughed from the front of the line.

“Ally hates it when people spend on her.” He said as he walked up to the front of the line, handing over his money.

I nodded angrily and Liam chuckled, wrapping an arm around my shoulder. The line grew smaller and I stayed by Liam’s side the whole time. I was seriously questioning how in the world I was able to score so high by getting a boy like Liam. He was thoughtful, sweet, caring, nice, funny at times, and not to mention attractive. He was the perfect human being.

Liam and I were last in line and when he was finished buying our tickets we stepped to the side with the others. It was half past twelve now, and we planned to meet back up at five to head back home. I gave Harry a smile and high five before Liam grabbed my hand and pulled me away from the pack. Looking over my shoulder, I saw them head their separate ways- Niall was distinctively rushing towards the food.

“So, how many tickets do we have?” I ask Liam and swing our arms between us.

 “One hundred between us.” He pulled the tickets out of his pocket and showed me.

“One hundred?!” I laugh. “You might have overdone yourself a bit this time, Liam.”

He shrugged and veered off towards the Ferris wheel. “I’m going to make this the perfect day for you.”

I didn’t say anything else as we stood in line for the ride. I didn’t really know what to say. It seemed impossible for me to be able to put all of the love I felt right now. I leaned back on Liam’s chest and he wrapped his arms around my waist from behind. I closed my eyes and couldn’t envision a more perfect beginning to this amazing day.


Liam and I did every single attraction available. A couple of times we ran into one of the boys and it was nice to hang out with them for a while. But as the sun slowly fell, there were less and less things left to do.

We had a fantastic time, a smile always visible on our lips. We spend the day away playing around, eating candy floss to our heart’s desire and spending every one of our tickets. I was surprised at how fast we spent them.

Sadly, our time here was ending and we walked hand in hand back through the empty carnival towards the exit. I could feel eyes on the back of my head and I turned to Liam.

"Stop staring at me!" I joked and he raised an eyebrow, smiling.

"I wasn't!" He protested and I just laughed. We continued to the entrance where we were to meet the boys and I could still feel him looking at me.

  "Ally!" I heard Harry's familiar voice call in the distance behind me. "Wait up!" 

I twirled around to spot the familiar mop of curls, my eyes sweeping over the fair. I couldn't see him and I looked closer.

  I let out a scream when I saw who was staring back at me. He was lurking in the shadows, his face almost unrecognizable. But I knew those eyes and the way his lips curled into an evil smirk.

"Oh my god." I cried and stumbled backwards, running full speed out of the fair. I could hear the boys running after me, yelling me asking me if I was alright.

I could hardly think as adrenaline filled me and my pace quickened. I made it to the car with tears pouring down my face and I frantically struggled to open the car doors.

  Please, god. Please! Make him go away.

  "Hurry!" I screamed at the boys as the caught up.

"Why?" Harry yelled back, confusion filling his face.

"We need to get out of here!" I screamed as loud as I could. I wanted to run and hide and scream and cry. Why?! Why did this have the happen?!

"But why?!" Harry grabbed hold of my shoulder and turned me to face him.

  "He's here, Harry. He's come after me." I sobbed uncontrollably. What was he going to do to me? "He told me that if I ever left he'd come after me."

"He's here?!" Harry screamed, turning towards the entrance. "I'm going to-"

"Please, Harry!" I grabbed his arm, my whole body shaking. The other boys were all frozen, forming a sort of barrier around me. "We have to get out of here!"

"Are you sure it was him?" Liam asked, obviously understanding the situation. I could see anger and rage ripping through him. I wasn't used to seeing him like this, and I knew it was all my fault.

  I nodded in a panic. "Yes! I'm sure it's Damen!"
