The Roller Coaster That Is Life

When I heard his soft, Irish accent say my name, I about lost it. For a split second, the chaos around me faded. Here I was, staring into those gorgeous blue eyes, frozen. Finially, as reality snapped back into place, he said it again, "Ava right?" all I could register was a nod and in return he gave me the slightest, most adorable grin I had ever seen and said "I'm Niall Horan."

That was the day that my life whipped out of place, from normal to insane, the day my roller coaster flipped, twirled, and spiraled out of control.


5. Date Night

It was finially Friday night and my date with Niall was only hours away. Coral and I had chosen a high-low white dress for me to wear along with brown sandals that had turquoise gems on them. I let Coral pin my wavy brown hair back into a matching turquoise bow and did my mascara they way coral had told me so that it made my light grey eyes stand out. Coral stepped back to give me the once-over look.
"love it. You look gorgeous as always, now smile so I can see those dimples," coral said with a very approving smile. So I smiled and spun around, letting the dress flow around me. Then there was a knock at the door and coral squealed. "it's Niall!" I whispered. Coral rolled her eyes and laughed "nooooo I though it was Justin bieber, dumbass." then she ran and opened the door, I shook my head at her and smiled as I followed her to the door. "hello," said Niall with his adorable smile as coral opened the door. before I could open my mouth coral took over, "hi I'm coral! Ava's best friend, Harry's future wife, future fashion designer,future model, currently the best partier in San Diego, and-" before this could go on any longer I interrupted, "this is coral," I told Niall politely. He laughed and reached out his hand which coral shook joyfully and he said "very nice to meet you. Ready to go Ava?" "deffinitley" I said joining Niall outside. As we walked to the car in the warm evening, everything sort of soaked in. Me, Niall, everything that had happened the past few days, it was all so amazing. I looked at Niall as we got to the car, the sun glistening off the side of his Ray Bans, and I smiled to myself just thinking how lucky I was to have met such a lovely boy.
When we got there, I realized that we were in a more upscale part of San Diego, at a resturaunt called Tapenade. Niall opened the door for me and took me by the arm as we walked through the doors. We took a seat at a reserved table. "this is beautiful," I said admiring the walls and decor of the resturaunt. "it is isn't it," said Niall looking at me. We both started looking at the menu, and that's when I figured out that I had no idea what this food was or how to even pronounce any of the dishes on the menu. While waiting for the waiter, Niall and I started talking about how he had to go back on tour in a few days and that he was hoping to spend as much time as possible with me. Then he told me tons of hilarious stories about him and the boys that made me laugh nonstop. "one time, somenody threw a walkie talkie on stage to Harry and I, which I thought was very clever, but painful when it hit me..." just as he finished his story, the waiter came to take our order. I realized that I still didn't know what anything on the menu was. I started freaking out on the inside because I didn't want to embarrass myself in front of Niall and the waiter. Niall went first, "I'll uh have the uh..." he looked at the menu funny and I realized that he had no idea what anything on the menu meant either. "that," he pointed at something on the menu and the waiter nodded, "and for you?" the waiter asked me. "erm I'll have what he's having," perfect. I thought, internally applauding myself for thinking of the perfect way to bail myself out. Once the waiter left and was out of earshot, Niall and I simultaneously bursted out laughing, earning looks of disapproval from the other people dining around us. "I have no idea what we just ordered," Niall said in between laughs. "me neither! I didnt even know how to pronounce anything on the menu," I felt so relived and was just laughing at how ridiculous we were. When our food got there, Niall and I shared a weird look. On our plates was a fish. A whole fish, skin and bones and eyeballs and everything. I stabbed it with my fork, half expecting it to flop around on my plate. Niall laughed at me and said, "Ava, I dunno about you but I'd rather not eat Nemo. So let's get outta here, how about burger king?" I smiled, "sounds perfect." so Niall left a 100 dollar bill on the table, grabbed my hand, and took me back outside to the car. A bit to my surprise, there were a few paparazzi outside that took some snapshots of Niall and I.
After we had gotten our burgers and milkshakes, we sat on a hill and looked at the stars. Niall looked at me, so I looked back at him and smiled, "what?" I asked. "nothing, nothing," he said looking away and blushing. I looked back up at the stars and soon after, I felt him looking at me again. I turned to him but before I could say anything he said, "Ava, will you be my girlfriend?" I was shocked and didn't know what to say. "okay, that was stupid. I mean not stupid but, ugh why did I say it like that? What I'm trying to say is that I would love you to be my girlfriend. I know I'm going back on tour soon for a while but we could make it work," he took a deep breath and looked at me. I smiled so much and I could see him relax. "of course, Niall." and that's when we shared our first kiss.
