Her life was pretty normal. Her father was dead, though. She lived with her mother and 12 year old brother Liam. But when their world is turned upside down, and the family's house is destroyed, the Krallem family is forced to flee from their home and live in a fancy 5 star hotel until ready to either rebuild their fire-ruined house or buy a new one. When Ariana finds herself in the wrong room, she comes face to face with two boys from the worlds most popular boy band, One Direction. She flees instantly, her insecurities and fears coming to life. But when she catches the eye of one of the boys, and accidentally leaves her phone behind, will her life be changed forever?


12. Picnic At The Park

As soon as we smoothly hid away from all possible fans, Niall led me to a big black van. I felt like I was in a shady drug deal or something, even though I obviously wasn't. Paul Higgins drove me and Niall to a beautiful park that reminded me much of New York's Central Park, but we were in England and that was obviously impossible. Niall and I got out and I thanked Paul before he left us to explore the vast land on our own. Niall quickly led me to a more private spot by a shady tree.  

Gently, he laid down a maroon blanket and patted it down, spreading it out for plenty of room. I sat down as he gathered the woven wicket basket and its contents inside,placing it in front of me. "So, you made all this food by yourself?" I asked gently, raising an eyebrow. I was very impressed. "Most of it, yes. I had Harry help me with some things. He's actually quite the chef." He gave a small laugh and I couldn't help but harmonize along. He started pulling out food one by one. I watched as before my eyes he pulled out sandwiches, pastas, and just a bunch of amazing foods. "Wow, Niall. You didn't have to do all of this just for me. Really.." He stopped me by shaking his head. "It's my pleasure. Oh, that reminds me.." He got up quickly and went behind the tree, quickly returning with a guitar in hand. "I got this to play music with." He murmured softly, his pale cheeks glistening with a dash of rosy red. How I loved when he got embarrassed.  

Niall sat down, and started just gently strumming at his guitar, mumbling faint song lyrics I couldn't depict. Either way this was amazing. Suddenly, his guitar playing picked up as well did his voice, and I recognized the song instantly. Angel by Shaggy. That was one of my favorite songs, it was so sweet and so meaningful. Before I could hep myself, I harmonized the song, singing along with Niall, a wide smile on my face. It took me about halfway through the song to realize Niall had completely stopped and was staring at me with his mouth open. He looked taken back with surprise. "What?" I asked nervously, my insecurities flourishing within me, was I THAT bad? "Your voice is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.." He mumbled softly, causing me to giggle nervously and playfully slap his knee. "Oh stop it!" I mumbled, eyeing the ground nervously and smiling like the utter fool I was. Niall quickly started strumming his guitar again, playing One Direction's most known song What Makes You Beautiful. He kept looking at me with every verse, winking or smiling as he sang. He had a beautiful voice, and it blew me away. How could one person be so full of perfection? It was mind blowing to me.  

I watched as he stopped and gently placed his guitar next to him. "Well, I'm starving." He mumbled as he quickly dived into the food, spooning himself out some pasta and other goodies, as well as a sandwich. I did the same, but I probably took about 50% more than Niall. I could tell her was surprised. "Damn, you eat more than I do! You're a keeper." He claimed winking at me before taking another bite. I shrugged with a small chuckle and I as well started eating what I could and then downing some water to wash it all down. My how this was beyond perfect. I was eating the most perfectly made dinner under a shady tree with Niall Horan, who defined perfection on his own. How did I ever get so lucky? Yeah, our house burning down with everything in it was a tragic event, but I felt this was God's way of telling me things will and do get better. Thank you, Lord Almighty.

  As we finished eating up all of the many contents in the picnic basket, Niall nudged closer to me on the blanket, and quickly I closed the gap between us, leaning up against him gently as he played his guitar. "I'll play, you sing okay? You're voice is truly gold, dear Ariana." Niall picked his head up so that our eyes locked, and goosebumps overran me. I gasped gently and nodded. "Um.. sure.." I had to control myself so hard to not throw myself up on Niall and kiss him with my every nerve. My head told me to do so, but my heart told me no. It was too early, my heart said. And my heart was right. "What should we perform?" He asked me and i sat and thought. I didn't know. "She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5, you know it?" Before he could answer he right away started playing the chords. I smiled, and started singing along. I could hear him gently harmonizing background vocals and I just looked at him. "And he wiiiiiill, be loved..." I sang as I gently pat Niall's shoulder then quickly drew my hand back, feeling embarrassed.  

As the song ended, I sighed. I looked at Niall and couldn't help but giggle. He set his guitar down and checked his watch. "Oh, crap! We're gonna miss the movie!" He exclaimed, pouting. Oh god, that pout. It killed me softly. I put my hand on his shoulder and gently pressed my pointer finger to his lips. "Why don't we catch the movie tomorrow or something? Quite frankly, I'm loving this as it is. We can make it a kind of get to know each other thing?" I suggested and as he nodded I nodded as well. Niall laid down on the blanket, and quickly I followed his movement by laying down next to him and staring at the stars through the open gaps in the tree branches. Niall faced his head towards me and I did the same, our eyes locked tightly. "So, where are you from?" He asked. "Well, I lived kinda close to the hotel. But right now, you could pretty much call the hotel my home." I saw Niall perk his eyebrows up and I continued. "My mom's boyfriend got jealous because he thought he saw her with another man but really it was her brother, so he burnt down our house and he went with it, along with everything I had but the clothes on my back and my phone and my iPo-" Before I could finish, I felt his hand grasp at my hipbone and pull me closer to him before he cupped my face in his hands and made eye contact with me, his stunning eyes weeping with sorrow and sympathy.  

"I'm so sorry, Ariana. That shouldn't happen to a sweetheart like you, and that man musta been a psycho to hurt you and your family.." He whispered slowly to me as I just nodded dumbfoundedly. This boy was amazing. He barely knew me and he treated me like I was the world in his hands. He treated me like.. a princess. Slowly but surely I watched as Niall leaned forward, his sweet breath clouding the air I took in. I watched as he puckered his lips and gently planted a kiss on my nose. As he did so, I felt sparks fly between us like something magical had totally happened. I smiled gently, and then burried my head in his chest feeling embarrassed and smitten all at the same time. Gently his hands ran through my hair and my eyes fought to stay awake, but before I knew it, I had fallen asleep into Niall's arms.

 -A Little While Later-  

"Shit, no. I knew this was gonna happen. Ariana, wake up!" With a gentle shove, I was instantly awaken by Niall. "Wuut?" I complained grogily, my nap was just fine as it was, thank you. Then I understood why. I heard the flashing of cameras, the calling of Niall's name and the questions of his new 'mystery girl' little did I realize that mystery girl, was me... I jumped up and got on my feet instantly, helping Niall pack up our dinner picnic date and run off to wherever Niall would take me. We hid behind some random building as Niall quickly dialed Paul's number, asking for immediate evacuation from the park. Niall nodded and hung up, facing me with utter regret on his face. "I'm so so sorry Ariana. I didn't want this to happen, but it did. I'm so so so sorry." He began rambling to himself about how he was a fool and he knew he shouldn't have done this and a bunch of other things before finally I grabbed his shoulders and shook him. "Niall, don't worry. I don't care about what magazines or newspapers or tv shows have to say about me. I'm me and that's all I'll ever be." He seemed to calm down a little, but he was still clinging on to the tense feeling that I could tell boiled inside him. "But our fans can be nasty to girls we fancy. Perrie, Danielle and Eleanor get torn to pieces sometimes and I don't want that happening to you. You're too precious for so much hate." I couldn't stand Niall looking so sad, his eyes were like pools of deep emotion. I hated seeing him so torn. I quickly shoved my body into his, giving him a big hug. My arms were around his neck, his hands around my waist. "Don't worry about it okay, Niall? It's nothing. Right now we're just two friends hanging out." Friends. Psh, as if. I'd love to be more than 'just two friends'. And by the feel of it, Niall would too.
