Life's Just One Long Weekend

Hi. I'm Cecilia. I'm 18 years old and I have a best friend named Alyssa. I just call her Lyss for short. She's a few months younger than me, but honestly? She's my rock. My boyfriend of a year and three months, Randy, just broke up with me and she's been there for me when I had no one else. We've been the Terrible Two since the diaper days. Lately, she's been talking NONSTOP about this new boy band One Direction, but when she talks about them I usually just tune her out. 'Cause once she starts, she can't stop. I personally have never seen or heard of those boys. Little did I know, they'd soon change my life forever.


1. A New Beginning


     My little sister, Taina (a.k.a Tai) also adores those boys. So when ever I'm on the phone with Lyss and she starts talking shit about them, I just hand Tai the phone and go about my business. I got over the boy band stage when I was like... 12.  But tomorrow's Taina's 13th birthday and she INSISTS that I spend every waking moment with her. And I love the little brat, so I will. 

     My alarm screeches in my ear, abruptly waking me up. 7:45 A.M.  I groan, turn the alarm off, and throw the covers off of my body. I walk over to my laptop and type in my Tumblr password. I go through my dash and all I see are these pictures of these boys. There were five of them: a boy with beautiful blue eyes and curly brown locks, a boy with a black quiff and big light brown eyes, a boy with a stripped shirt and eyes the color of my Caribbean Seas, a boy with warm brown eyes and curls that'll make a girl melt, and a boy with shocking blond hair and eyes that put the blue sky to shame. I stared for a moment at the blond.

      There was something about him that made him stand out more than the others, besides the obvious fact that he was the only blond. I couldn't put my finger on it. I felt like gazing into his eyes alone would keep me safe from harm. But I snapped out of it when my phone began to ring. Lyss. "Hey babe." I said as I closed my laptop. "Good morning, doll. How're ya?" She responded. "I'm fine, really tired. I didn't get much sleep last night." Thinking about Randy again?" She knew me too well. "Yeah. He called me last night at like 11 and told me that he still loved me, but he needed to focus on his baseball career so it wouldn't work out." "That's complete bullshit! He wouldn't even be where he is today if it weren't for you pushing hiim and HOW DARE HE-" "Lyss, chill out." I giggled. "Sorry. So are you coming by my job today?" "Yeah. I'm going to go to the bakery next to your job. Gunna go pick up a cake for Tai. See you at the party later?" "You know it, boo." "Alright, see ya then." I hung up, hopped into the shower, got dressed and left to the bakery. I passed the pizza shop Alyssa worked at so I just waved "Hi" and kept going. I placed the order for the cake and left to get breakfast. On my way to the deli, I sawa poster with  those boys again, with the words "One Direction" under them. So that's who they were.

     Got breakfast, got the cake, and I walked back to the house when I heard this song I've never heard before blasting from Taina's room. "You don't know you're beautiful uh oh ! That's what makes you beautiful!" I walked into the house and put the cake in the fridge. Taina then came running down the stairs to get her food. That girl could eat, let me tell you. She was humming the melody of the song she just heard as she approached me, to which I in return grabbed her and held her in my famous "Ceci bear hugs". "HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!" Her face light up like a Christmas tree and she thanked me. She was already showered and dressed. The rest of the family came and wished her a happy birthday and we prepared for the party. My step mother, Tina, and I cleaned the house top to bottom while my father Lewis and my uncle Cay (pronounced K Eye) cooked. I danced to the salsa rhythems blasting through the speakers. This was the typical sound of the Puerto Rican family. As the song begins to fade, it's 9 P.M and Tai screams my name. I run over there, worried, and she's just there fan girling over One Direction. I laugh and sit on her bed and watch their performance on her TV screen. She was watching the KCA's. I watched them perform and I was in awe. There was so much energy eminating from the screen as the boys pranced around on stage. My eyes followed the blondie and I was breathless. He was just beautiful. 

     The party started around 11 P.M and didn't finish until about 6:30 A.M. Alyssa stood over and we both didn't wake up until 3 P.M. "So.. Tell me about One Direction." I asked Lyss who just looked at me like I saw stupid. "I tell you about them all the time!" "I know but I never really listened. I mean... I didn't really know what you were talking about so I just tuned out." She just glared at me with her arms crossed across her chest. "I loooooove youuuuuuuuu." I grinned, pounced on her and hugged her. She just giggled and took out her phone. She had a picture of the boys as her wall paper and I just rolled my eyes and listened. "Okay, so that one's Harry Styles. He's my favorite for obvious reasons. And  that's Zayn Malik. He's British and Pakistani. That's Louis Tomlinson. He's crazy funny. That's Liam Payne. They call him Daddy Direction. He has such a big heart. And that's Niall Horan. He's Irish." Niall Horan. I dreamed about him singing to me last night, staring into his blue eyes and him holding me. Childish, I know. But I can't control my dreams, so shut up. Lyss and I spent the day educating me on everything One Direction, or 1D as the fans call them. By 10 o'clock, I was a sold fan. A Directioner. I heard the whole album and bought it on iTunes (or Eye Tunes). A week later I'd even bought tickets to see the boys next July. What was happening to me? I've never fan girled before, but now? I didn't know what has gotten into me, or if I liked it. But I couldn't get those crystal blue eyes out of my mind.
