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?


5. The Signing

Dani's POV

The second I saw the guy leaning on my locker, I groaned. I stomped to my locker and pushed him aside roughly. The boy stumbled, but seemed more interested in keeping his black fedora and sunglasses on.

"Look, if you want my number, get in line. Now get lost." I told him.

"That's not a very warm welcome, love." he said in an English accent. Wait a minute...

I turned to the boy and lifted his shades off. Goddamn it.

"Louis? What the hell are you doing here?" I whispered.

"I came to talk to you." he said.

"Why? Can't you guys just leave me alone?" I spat.

"Now what would be the fun in that?" Louis teased.

I rolled my eyes and walked towards the exit. Unfortunately, Louis followed me.

"Seriously, Louis Tomlinson. What do you want?"

"Wow. I thought you didn't know who I was?" Louis teased.

"Grace gave me the 411 on One Direction last night after you guys left. She's dragging me to your stupid CD signing."

"Perfect! We'll meet you there."

"I'm not going there to see you. I'm going there to support my neurotic best friend. Now if you would excuse me-"

"Please just hear me out! If you don't, you are going to be making thousands of One Direction fans unhappy."

"How so?" I asked.

"Niall hasn't got out of bed since we got back to the hotel last night. He's freaking depressed, and if you don't forgive him, only 4/5 of One Direction will be at that signing tonight."

"He lied to me, Louis! That's not something I can simply forget." I said as I unlocked my car. I felt a hand on my shoulder, and turned around to see Louis frowning at me.

"Niall's a good guy. He never meant to hurt you. I actually haven't seen him that happy in awhile. Give him a second chance."

I shrugged off his hand and got into my red camaro without another word.


"Welcome to Starbucks. What can I get you?" I asked the next person in line. I squinted to see through their dark sunglasses and groaned.

"Harry, what the hell?"

"Dani you've got to give Niall a second chance." he said.

"Go away. I'm working."

"The nice man over there told me that you're off at 4:30 on Tuesdays."


"It's 4:35."

"Damn it!"

I signed out and walked straight past Harry to get to my car. He chased me out, just like Louis did.

"Dani, try to understand. Niall was planning on telling you last night! That's why were were all there!"

"I don't want to hear it Har-wait, what?" I asked, suddenly confused.

"That's why he asked you to meet up with him! He's not as bad of a guy as you think!"

I looked down at the ground, suddenly feeling guilty. I hadn't even given him a chance to explain...

"Tell Niall he better get his fat ass out of bed and make it to that CD signing." I said as I got into my car. I could picture Harry's smile as I drove home.


"Holy cow that line is long." I said as I parked the car. Grace and Emma hopped out and rushed to the back of the line. Nothing was going to stop them from meeting One Direction.

I got out of the car and stood next to them, standing on my toes to see if I could see the end of the line. Nope. It went around the block.

"Well this is going to be hell." I grumbled.

"No it's not! You know why? Because we're going to meet ONE DIRECTION!!!" Emma screamed.

"Ya, whatever. I'm going to go to the washroom. And find out where this damn line ends."

I slipped out of line and began walking past all of the obsessive 1D fans. The line wasn't as long as I thought, but it was still at least a two hour wait.

I saw the band announce that they were going to take a break and saw my chance. I ran to the edge of the rope that kept the fans from running up to the tour bus, pushing my way through the screaming girls.

"NIALL!!" I screamed. They obviously didn't hear me. Damn it, why couldn't I have Grace's scream?

I took out my phone instead and called his number. It rang twice before he picked up, "Dani?"

"NIALL WE HAVE TO TALK!" I yelled over the noise of the crowd.

"Where are you?" he asked. I saw him peer out the window of the bus and I waved at him.

"Come around back. I'll get you past security."

I hung up and stuffed my phone in my pocket before pushing through the crowd once again. I ran back around the block, ignoring Grace's questions as I passed her. I saw the other side of the tour bus with heavy security all around it, and slowed down to a walk.

"Excuse me, Miss, but you can't go any further." a tall man said when I tried to pass him.

"I'm a friend. They're expecting me." I told him, even though I already knew what his reply would be.

"I can't take that risk. I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to ask you to leave." the man said.

"I was told to come back here, now let me through!" I cried.

"I'm going to ask you to leave one more time, and if you don't, I'm going to-"

"Let her through. She's a friend." I heard Niall say behind the wall of a man. He turned around and looked between me and Niall, before staring at the ground sheepishly.

"Sorry, Mr. Horan." the security guard said as he moved out of my way. I finally saw Niall and ran into his outstretched arms. He squeezed me tight before wrapping an arm around my waist and leading me into the tour bus.

The boys were spread out around the bus, and each of them was on their cell phones. Typical.

As soon as Niall and I came in, they looked up from their phones and smiled.

"Thank God." was all Liam said before he looked back to his cell.

I rolled my eyes as I realized that was the closest thing to a 'hello' I was going to get.

Niall lead me to the very back and we sat down together on a white love seat. I sighed, "I'm really sorry. I overreacted, and I didn't give you a chance to explain." I finally said.

"I'm sorry too. I should have told you the minute you decided to get into that limo with me, but I didn't know what you would say."

I laughed, "Now I feel bad for telling you I don't listen to your music!"

"Don't worry. I've heard a lot worse than what you said. There are plenty of haters to go around."

"You don't think I'm a hater, do you?" I asked.

"If you forgive me, than you are nowhere close to a hater." Niall smiled.

"Of course I forgive you." I whispered. Niall leaned in, and I kissed him willingly. His soft lips moved in sync with mine, and when I pulled away, I felt a lot better than I did this morning.

The chanting of the crowd outside brought me back to reality, and I smiled, "You should get back out there, otherwise my friends and I are going to have to wait a very long time to get autographs."

"You shouldn't have to wait in that. I'm pitying myself for having to speak to all of them, but I couldn't imagine how you silly fans might feel." Niall teased.

"Ah ah, not a fan. Not yet anyway. I'm new to the whole boy band thing." I corrected.

Niall took my hand and lead me to the front of the bus, "Here," he said, handing me a lanyard with a card hooked onto the end. The card read BACKSTAGE PASS in red letters.

"You're giving me a backstage pass at a CD signing?" I said with a laugh.

"They work, trust me. This will bump you right up to the front of the line." Niall said with a wink. I rolled my eyes and gave him one last peck on the cheek before I headed back out the back way. I waved the pass in front of the security guard's face and his eyes narrowed, but he remained silent.

As soon as I caught up to Grace and Emma, they had moved up a few yards in the line. The boys were back to signing I guess.

"Dani! There you are! Where did you run off to?" Emma asked.

Grace eyed the lanyard excitedly, "And what's that?"

"Come on, girls. Let's meet One Direction." I said, holding up the pass. The two of them screamed, which was so loud, Niall was probably listening to it right now.

I grabbed both of their hands and took them out of the line before dragging them up to the front. Actually, I was the one being dragged at this point.

Security automatically stopped us, but as soon as I showed them the 1D stamp of approval, he let us pass. Wow. Backstage passes really do work.

Just as Niall had said, it basically bumped us right to the front of the line. I smiled at my two very excited friends and motioned for them to go say hi.

Liam was the one who spoke first, though, "Hey, girls. I'm Liam."

Emma and Grace waved, completely starstruck. Jesus, they really did need to bring me along!

"Hey, Liam!" I said back.

Grace and Emma continued to stare with the biggest smiles on their faces EVER. I laughed at their expressions and stood between them, resting my elbows on their shoulders.

"Hey, guys. I'm Dani. This is Emma," I said, gesturing to Emma on my right. Then, I looked directly at Harry, "and this is Grace."

Harry winked at me before he gave Grace and Emma both a hug each. Then, Louis started talking to them, and I eventually just stood by Niall.

"Told ya." I whispered.

"At least they haven't screamed yet." he whispered back.

"Wait and see."

Sure enough, the second Harry signed Grace's CD, she screamed. Niall winced, and I burst out laughing.

When the girls turned to Zayn, who was standing right next to Niall, I put on mock enthusiasm, "Oh my God! It's Niall Horan! I'm such a big fan! My life is complete!" I said sarcastically. Grace smacked my arm and I gave her a 'what the hell?' look.

After a hug and autograph from Niall, Grace and Emma rushed away from the band. I rolled my eyes and gave Niall a hug before tossing him the lanyard and following my friends.
