Take your chance ~ [One Direction]

Nelly lives in England with her parents. One day her mom, Kelly, contacts her old friend, Maura, who lives in Ireland. The mom is going there and has to take her daughter with her, because the dad isn't home. Nelly doesn't want to got there, but do it at last.

The trip to Ireland changes her life forever.

12. Dinner

I've just realized that it's Friday and I'll be going home on Sunday. I don't want to leave already, I wouldn't mind staying here for one more week or two or three...

I actually don't know what we're going to do today, but unfortunately, I don't think I'll be alone with Niall again. My mom probably has something planned, I'll see. But now I just want to go downstairs, eat something and relax. I'm really lazy today and I have no idea why, I just am. It feels weird.

In the moment I've walked down the stairs, my mom rushes towards me. "Nelly! You have to be ready at 2pm, we're all going out! We'll go to Dublin!" no, No, NO. That wasn't what I've expected. I want to have a relaxed day and then this happens?! Ugh, sorry for being moody the rest of the day then. "Okay, I'll try." I answer normally. Ruined a bit of her excitement, but she ruined my mood. Right now It's 10:57am, about 3 hours to go.

It lights up my mood when I see Niall sitting in the garden. Why does he do this to me. Beside that, It's actually a nice weather, very sunny.

After I've eaten I think about going outside to Niall but I don't want to be moody like this infront of him, therefore I go to my room. I log on Twitter. Some of my friends know about Niall, because I told them about him when I arrived. They are very curious but I don't feel like telling them all the details before I get back to England. So for now, I just tell them that nothing has really happend and that we don't talk that much. If I tell about yesterday they will ask so many questions that it will ruin the relationship for me. I know I'm weird, but when other people know about it, it just becomes a bit awkward when we're together, I don't know.


"We have to go now! Hope you're all ready!" I hear my mom shout from downstairs. I'm ready but at the same time I'm not. We're all four going; Mom, Maura, Niall and I. 

I sit next to Niall on the backseat which makes me happy. My mom and Maura talks a lot, and I don't know how they always have something to talk about, but I guess, when you haven't seen eachother for ages, it is like that.

It takes 35 minutes to get there by car. "Have you ever been in Dublin?" Niall asks. "No, I haven't but I bet it's nice! Ha-..." I almost asked if he had too, but of course he has. Embarrassing. "Yeah, it's pretty cool." Then we talk about the weather and England compared to Ireland. "I would like to go to England someday." "You should! You and your mom could visit us like we're visiting you here. I think it's a good idea." "It indeed, it's a good idea!" I can't help but smile. I can't wait to see him again though I'm sitting right next to him at the moment.


Dublin is great, I like it. We walk around in the city and see what it is like. Maura tells about the city, memories and Ireland in general. She tells about it in an interesting way which make me want to listen to her. My mood is getting better and I'm enjoying this little trip to Dublin, surprisingly. 

Now it's time to eat dinner. We're going to eat at an Italian restaurant, how Irish, I know. We stand in the line to get a table. "A table for four," Maura says. "Yes, this way. Do you want to sit upstairs or downstairs?" "Hmm.." Maura looks at us. "Just upstairs." Niall answers. The waiter shows us our table and gives us four menu cards.

"What are you going to eat?" I ask Niall. "I don't really know. I was thinking some lasagne. What about you?" "I was thinking the same. It looks pretty good. Yeah, I'll order that." "Me too." We're buddies now, I feel it. Let me have my little moment.

We all order our food and drinks. I'm really thirsty so I hope they come with the drink first. They do, thank god. I ordered a Fanta. Niall ordered a Coca cola, still (almost) buddies, yeah we're cool. 

When the food arrives we're quiet because we're all so hungry. Maura breaks the silence by saying: "I enjoy you two staying by our's. I hope we can visit eachother more in the future." "Of course we can! You can come visit us in England next time. It's always great to be with an old friend - and new as well." Mom says the last sentence while looking at me, but yes she's so is right. Maybe she heard me and Niall's conversation, but if she did I don't really care, let her.

"In the beginning Nelly didn't want to go here. She was really against it." I look annoyed at my mom, but she doesn't seem to notice. Why does she feel the need to tell that now?! We were having a nice time; all of us. "She wanted to stay at a friend's house but then at last went with me anyway." I make a fake smile when Maura looks at me. Mom, you weren't supposed to ruin my mood again. "But I bet she doesn't regret it now." Maura knows how I feel. This time I give her a real smile, because she is more than right. I honestly wouldn't change this week for anything. I don't comment on it neither does Niall; he just smiles. Good for me because this conversation could have ended awkwardly. The rest of the dinner we all sit and talk about random stuff.

I had a lovely time in Dublin.
