What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction)

Dani has been supporting her best friend's obsession with the latest guy trends since they were 7. From the Jonas Brothers to Justin Bieber, Dani had heard it all. Dani had never been much to follow the crowd, and never really paid much attention to the latest boy bands. All she knew were the names.
Well, Grace's newest obsession is a little band called One Direction. Dani is constantly hearing about tour dates, concerts, and interviews, but had never heard their music or seen their pictures. Just another boy band, right?
But when Dani unknowingly meets one of the famous band members, her life is changed forever. Especially when she finds out that her summer will also be effected. Will her lack of interest in the band continue, or will she open up to the new atmosphere?


2. She's Real

Niall's POV

*Crazier than Grace? I doubt it ;)*

I smiled at her response, but unfortunately it didn't go unnoticed by Louis. He grabbed my phone before I could react and ran out to the living room with it.

"LOU!" I cried, annoyed. I ran out to where Louis, Liam, and Harry were sitting on the couch. Louis sat in the middle, and the three of them were scrolling through my messages.

"Who's this Dani?" Liam asked.

"Aww! Did Nialler make a friend today?" Louis cooed. I snatched the phone out of their hands and stuffed it in my pocket.

"Possibly." I said vaguely.

"Was he a fan or something that you took pity on? Because if so, your number will be all over twitter in seconds." Liam said.

"No. SHE didn't even know who I was. Still doesn't." I said with a shrug.

"She was probably just playing it cool. I bet you anything it's all over twitter right now." Harry said as He grabbed his laptop off the ground and signed into his account. I leaned over his shoulder as he typed in my name, but nothing out of the ordinary came up. No numbers, or stories about how I hung out with that girl on the beach. Nothing.

"Ha! Told ya." I said as I rolled up my sleeve and showed the three of them the number on my arm, "And I even got the hot girl's number."

Harry shook his head, "If she had been talking to me, she would have known exactly who I was."

Louis laughed, "I bet you anything she's not real!"

I smiled, excepting the challenge as I held my phone out for all of them to see. I dialed Dani's number and put it on speaker.


"Hey, Dani. It's Niall."

"Oh. Hey Niall!"

Louis' mouth hung open, "Damn it! She is real!"

"Who was that?" Dani asked.

"Sorry. That's just Louis. He doesn't believe I'm capable of speaking to a girl." I said, glaring at him.

"I think you did pretty good. That puppy dog look is very convincing."

I smiled, "So, anyway, I was wondering if you wanted to go out some time?"

This time, Liam's mouth was the one to drop. Did no one have faith in me?

"Well, what did you have in mind?" Dani asked.

Suddenly, I heard a new voice on the other line, "OH MY GOD!!! DANIELLE CROSS DID YOU JUST SAY YES TO A DATE?!"

"I am so sorry about that. That was just Grace. She doesn't believe I'm capable of enjoying the company of a guy."

"Is she hot?" Harry suddenly asked.

"Shut up, Harry." I told him.

Dani laughed, "It's okay! To answer your question, her hotness depends on yours. If you are ugly, then no she's not pretty at all. But if you're hot, she's smokin'."

Harry laughed, "I like you, mystery girl! Say yes so Niall won't die alone."

"Sure, Niall. I'd love to go out with you." she finally said with a laugh.

That was the precise moment that Zayn decided to enter the room.

"Did I hear that right?" he asked.

"Shut up Zayn!" I said as I turned off speaker phone and held it up to my ear.

"Sorry about my mates. Not the most polite bunch."

"S'okay. I know exactly how you feel."

"OH MY GOD!!! DANI COME HERE!!! ONE DIRECTION IS DOING A TWITCAM!!!" Grace's voice cried in the background. Man, that girl could be loud.

I looked out into the living room and saw the guys waving at the laptop. Wow. They really were doing a twitcam.

"I'm so sorry about her." Dani said.

I laughed, "I don't mind."

"So...where are you going to take me?"

"It's a surprise." I said, even though, in reality, I had no idea what there was to do in California.

"Seriously? Surprises drive me crazy! Just tell me!"

"What would be the surprise in that?" I teased.

"Fine." Dani huffed.

"Where should I pick you up?" I asked.

Dani gave me her address, and I told her I would be there at 6 before we hung up. I casually walked out to where the guys were giving shout outs on twitter. I tossed my phone to Harry and smiled.

"Which one of you bet that she wasn't real?" I teased.

"Get out of here, Nialler! The fans want to see Hazza." Harry said, gesturing to his face. I leaned over Louis' shoulder and read a few comments.

"Really? Because there are about 200 comments saying that everybody loves seeing me on camera." I said with a grin as I waved at the web cam.

Louis signed out and stared at me expectantly.

"What?" I asked.

"What did she say?" he asked.

"Tomorrow night at 6. Why?"

"Did you get her address?" Zayn asked.


"Then let's stalk this chick! I want to find out why she doesn't recognize this voice of beauty." Harry said.

I sighed, "Fine."

I typed in the address into images and a giant apartment showed up. Man, this girl lives in Beverly Hills!

"Holy toast. She's loaded." Liam said.

"What number?" Louis asked.

I gulped, "Penthouse flat."

He typed it in and a huge luxurious suite appeared on the screen. Large windows took up many walls, and the three bedrooms were huge.

Zayn laughed, "Niall knows how to pick 'em."

I shook my head, "She's not a stuck up rich girl if that's what you guys are implying."

"I won't believe it until I see it." Louis said.

"If you can get me a date with the hot best friend, I believe you." Harry said.

I rolled my eyes and made my way to my bedroom. Well, today was eventful.


Dani's POV

"DANI GET YOUR ASS BACK HERE!!!" Grace screamed. I face palmed. There was no way she was going to leave me alone until I let her do my hair.

"I really don't want to, Grace!" I said in a sort of beg. Please say I don't have to!

"I don't care. I either get to do your hair, or choose your outfit. Your choice."

I groaned and sat down in the chair Grace had set out for me. Just get it over with, Dani. You don't have much time anyway.

It was already 5:00, and Grace had literally snagged me just as I was coming out of the shower. She tended to go a bit overboard with her appearance.

Grace has that whole 'California girl' look to her. She has golden blonde hair and light blue eyes, with slightly tanned skin and a tiny waistline. She wears a lot of pink and lace, as well as short shorts and tight shirts. Her blonde hair was always perfectly styled, because either she did it, or her personal stylist did. Basically, she was my exact opposite.

I mean, I wore short shorts and tight shirts as well, and I guess my waistline wasn't big, but besides that we were polar opposites.

"All right. So, tell me about this date of yours. Is he hot?" Grace asked as she blow dried my hair.

"Ya, he's hot. But that's not the reason I agreed to go out with him, for your information."

"You're right. Tons of hot guys ask you out. So what makes this one so special?"

I shrugged, "Maybe the fact that he doesn't just care about what I look like. He seems more genuine."

"I see. So, you're a sucker for the sensitive ones?" Grace teased.

"Kinda I guess. Does it really matter?"

"Okay, fine. New question. What's his name?"

"Niall." I said.


"I think your obsession has hit its high point." I muttered. Grace composed herself and began running her fingers through my naturally straight hair. She had some kind of hair product in her hands, and I saw my hair slowly turn to its normal state. Thank God.

"Beautiful. Just as you always are." Grace said, her chin resting on the top of my head.

"Thanks, Gracie." I said, giving her an awkward 'over the shoulder' hug.

"No prob. Can I at least help you pick an outfit?" she begged.

I sighed, "HELP. Not demand."

Grace hopped up and down excitedly, "YAY!"

We made out way into my large bedroom and I walked into my closet. I took out a pair of short shorts and a plaid button up shirt that was fitted and pink. I also took out a blue and black mini dress with blue ruffles and a black sleeveless chest.

I held the two outfits up for Grace to see, and she pointed to the shorts.

"So, where are you two going tonight?" she asked.

"I'm not sure. He wouldn't say."

Grace nodded and I came out completely dressed. I went into my bathroom and put on a light amount of makeup before I walked back into my bedroom. I loved my room. It was mostly white, except the walls, which were splatter painted with red. And my fluffy black carpet of course.

"What are you doing?" I asked Grace as I snatched my phone out of her fingers.

"What? I was just updating your twitter for you!" she said happily, as if it was a completely normal thing to do.

I quickly looked down at the phone and read 'my' last tweet.

'@Dani_Cross: Date tonight :) SUPER EXCITED!!'

I shook my head in disappointment and wrote a new tweet.

'@Dani_Cross: Just got hacked by @GraceStyles, but does have a date tonight :)'

Grace's phone beeped and she grinned.

I slipped my phone into the pocket of my jeans and made my way out to the living room. Suddenly, a buzz was heard around the flat and I held the red button on the wall down, "Yes, Jerry?"

"You've got a visitor, Miss Cross. Should I send him up?" Jerry's voice announced through the speaker.

"Yes, thank you!" I said as I released the button.

"OMG! OMG! HE'S HERE!" Grace cried as she ran up to me and started jumping up and down. I found this both supporting and insulting.

"Uh, Grace? Could you go find my phone? I think I forgot it somewhere in my room." I lied. She nodded excitedly and scampered back into my room. A second later, there was a light knock at the door.

I opened it a crack and slipped out into the hallway. Niall grinned at me, amused at my silent escape.

"Sorry. I'd let you in, but Grace is still here. I don't want to put you through that, yet." I explained in a hushed voice.

Niall continued to grin as he nodded. Together, we walked into the elevator and headed down to the lobby.
