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?


4. The Truth

Dani's POV

Grace flicked a paper onto my desk and I raised an eyebrow at her. I looked down at it and unfolded the note.

'Hottie staring at you! Are you sure you like this Niall guy?' It said. I looked to where Grace was motioning and saw a guy with short black curly hair. I rolled my eyes and balled up the note, throwing it at Grace's head. She glared at me and I smirked.

Suddenly, the bell rand and everyone got out of their seats. Curly-haired boy started walking towards me and I groaned.

"Hey Danielle. I'm Carl. I was wondering if you wanted to come-"

"I have a boyfriend." I said without thinking. Was that what Niall was? I wasn't sure. I liked him, and the statement made Carl's face turn to disappointment, then curiosity.

"Who?" he asked.

"You don't know him. Actually, I don't even know you. So get out of my way." I spat, trying to get around him to head out the door.

"Would like to? Know me, I mean?" he pressed. How many times do I have to say no for this stupid guy to get it?!

"No!" I said sternly. He still wouldn't let me pass, so I pushed him out of the way. Guys always underestimate my strength. This one was no different.

I unlocked my locker and tossed my chemistry textbook inside before grabbing my copy of A Midsummer Night's Dream for English.

Suddenly, I heard my phone ring from inside my pocket. I took it out and saw it was Niall.


"Hello, love. How's school so far?" Niall's voice asked through the phone.

"Eh. Just a normal school day. Jumping jacks, biology homework, and creepy guys hitting on me." I said with a shrug.

"I'm not that creepy, am I?"

I laughed, "You don't count! Your little puppy dog eyes actually worked on me."

"That's good to hear. So, I was wondering if you are free tonight?"

I smiled, "I'm free anytime after 6."

"Great! I'll pick you up at 7."

"See you then!"

I hung up and closed my locker. Emma was standing directly behind it, and smiled at me excitedly.

"DID YOU JUST SAY YES TO A DATE, DANI CROSS?!" she screamed. The hallway went silent and I rolled my eyes.

"I'm sure Grace filled you in on what happened last night, so let's just get this over with. His name is Niall, he's really cute, and he doesn't go to our school."

"Where did you guys meet?!" Emma cried.

"The beach. I tripped on him and fell into his lap." I said.


"Whatever you say, Emma. I've got to get to class." I said as I walked away. With Emma, that's the only thing you CAN do.


I flicked through the channels absent mindedly as Grace ran through the door. This usually happened whenever she had news about One Direction.

"OMG! OMG! OMG! DANI GUESS WHAT?!" she screamed.

"What?" I asked lazily.

"ONE DIRECTION IS DOING A CD SIGNING TOMORROW AFTERNOON!!!!" she screamed. And I honestly do mean scream.

"And, I'm hearing this why?" I asked.

"Because it's in Hollywood and I don't know how to drive."

"You have a driver."

"Ya, but I don't want to go with a driver! I want to go with my best friend!"

"Do I have to?" I asked.

"If you do, I'll buy you a smoothie on the way there."

I sighed. She knew my weak spot.

"Fine. I'll do it."

"YAY!!!" Grace cried. She ran out of the room and came back with a rolled up poster. Oh, God. This can't be good.

I turned to look at her as she unrolled it, and my mouth dropped. Was that...?

"I know you've never seen what they look like before, so I'm preparing you for tomorrow! That's Louis, Harry, Liam, Zayn, and Niall. Aren't they HOT?!" Grace cried.

I snatched the poster out of her fingers and stared at it with an open mouth. Niall...One Direction...Huh?!

On the poster were 5 familiar boys, including Niall. At the corner was the name ONE DIRECTION in big block letters. I was so confused!

Grace mistook my shock for excitement, "I know, right?! Look at Harry Styles! He's a dreamboat, am I right?"

"He thinks you're hot too..." I muttered under my breath. Grace didn't hear me, and just skipped out of the room.

I shook my head as I stared down at them. Niall was from One Direction. That's why he was wearing the sunglasses and hood on our date!

Suddenly, there was a knock at the door and I jumped. I was furious right now. I didn't want to see Niall at all.

"It's just the pizza guy! I've got it!" I called to Grace as I made my way up to the door, still clutching the poster in my hands.

I opened the door and saw not only Niall, but all 5 of them. All right, now I was BEYOND furious.

"Hey, Dani." Niall said casually. I shook my head in disappointment.

"What's the matter?" he asked.

"You lied to me." I said.


I threw the poster at him in anger. He picked it up, and the boys looked over his shoulder. They snickered, but Niall looked shocked.

"Why didn't you tell me?! Are you ashamed of going out with a regular girl?!" I cried.

"Dani I swear-"

"Do you not trust me or something?! Why didn't you bloody tell me, Niall?!"

"I just wanted to hang out with a normal girl for once! Someone who doesn't think of me as Niall Horan from One Direction."

"And what? You thought I wouldn't find out? My best friend is one of your biggest fans! I'm surprised it's gone on this long!"

"Dani please-"

"Just get out of here, Niall." I finally said. His face showed his pain, but I slammed the door in his face anyway.

"Did you get the pizza?" Grace asked as she came into the room. She took one look at me, saw my teary eyes, and wrapped her arms around me.

"That was Niall, wasn't it?" she asked.

I nodded and she stroked my hair soothingly.

"It's going to be okay, babe. We'll have a girl's night instead, ya?"

I smiled as she took me over to the couch and wrapped a blanket over my shoulders. This is why she's my best friend.
