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.


4. Bangarang


Cecilia's POV: 

     9 PM and the party's already in full swing. I'd already had a few drinks and was dancing, very closely mind you, with a very hot guy. When the song finished, I thanked him and went over to get another drink. "Cecilia!!!" I heard someone yell over the loud music. I turned and grinned. "Kenny!!" I yelled back. He lifted me off the ground and spun me around in a big hug. Man I loved his hugs. We did our handshake which ended with us yelling "BANGARANG!!!" at the end of it. We walked over to the kitchen where it was quieter. 

     Before I continue on, I should explain what's the deal with the whole Bangarang business. In freshman year, Ana, Lyss, Carri, and I took a class called Elements of Communication. The class was basically a really fun class where we just had to talk with one another. It was, indeed, a class. So we had to write the occasional essay and present it to the class. But mostly, we had a subject every day and we talked about it. It was really fun. The class was a small one, it only consisted of ten people: me, Alyssa, Luana, Caroline, Alexanne (a.k.a Alexe), Kenny, Joshua, Brandon, Aden, and Dag. One day, in class, we'd watched Hook with Robert Williams and when the part came up when the Lost Boys yelled "Bangarang!!" we all yelled with them. It kinda stuck with us. So we became the Bangarang Gang. 

     Anyway, back to me and Kenny in the kitchen. "How"re you Ceci? I've missed you." he said, desperately trying not to slur his words. I'd never seen him drunk, he thought I would think differently.I was 18 and he was a year older than me. Since I didn't have any older siblings, he became my older brother. He protected me from boys and when we had a Bangarang Sleepover, he'd stay in bed with me to "protect me from what's in the dark." "I'm fine." I lied. Fact was, I wasn't fine. I was hurt. I was heartbroken because I lost my boyfriend. I'd given him  my virginity and a few months later, he left me. I was so not fine. But he's drunk so he didn't notice. Had he been sober, he would've caught on. "So, how's Randy? You guys married yet?" He laughed. I chuckled and looked at my feet. "Ceci, how's Randy?" He said more seriously now. I was about to tell him that we'd broken up when the kitchen door swung open and I froze.

Niall's POV:

     I'd been thinking all day about Cecilia. How beautiful she was. How the light of the sunset shined in her amazing brown eyes. How when she looked in the direction if the sun, they became almost hazel. Her eyes, man. They were like orbs of brown and a hint of green. And they lit up so much when she smiled. Oh, that smile. It could light up even the darkest room. How could I forget to call her? How could I be so stupid? When I'd gotten home from dropping her off, I was so tired I fell asleep in my clothes right when I got to my room. I'd been busy up until today.

     We got to the party and it was packed. There were grinding teenagers everywhere, clutching on to their cups of what I assume to be alcohol. The lads had split. Zayn went to look for Ana and Harry for Lyss. Liam was pushing his way through the crowd and Louis went to get a drink. I had to go find Ceci. The dance floor was packed so I went to the closest door there was. When I walked in, there she was. She was beautiful. She wore a black dress that hugged her body. It came up  to her mid-thigh. She wore red heels and her legs looked amazing. Her hair was curled softly and it fell perfectly on her face. A face that was staring right at me. 

     I cleared my throat before I began. "Hey Ceci." I greeted her with a small smile. She tensed up. "Hello." was all she said before returning her attention to a guy that I didn't even notice was in the room. "We'll talk later." she said with an apologetic smile. He nodded and left the room, leaving us alone. "Look I-" I started before she cut me off. "Save it." I shut my mouth and found interest in my sneakers. "You're a busy guy. I should've known you wouldn't call me." I looked up at her, she was about two inches taller than me in those heels. I took her hands in mind, but she only took them back and hid them behind her. Great job, Niall, I mentally scolded myself. I took a breath and began.

Cecilia's POV:

     "Please just hear me out." he pleaded. *Calm down. I'm trying. Well try harder. Our heart is racing so fast it could easily be the engine of a racecar. Ha ha. Funny.* I mentally argued with myself while I waited for him to begin. I've gotta stop doing that. "Okay. Look, I'm sorry I haven't texted or called you. I'm not going to lie to you, I forgot. I got back to the hotel that night so exhausted I fell asleep in my clothes. And I've been busy every day up until today. I'm really sorry. May I please have another chance?" he said nervously, holding out his hand for me to hold. Okay, he seems sincere. Now what? I bit my lip, thinking if I should give the chance he asked for. *I just got out of a relationship. I need to heal. You honestly think you could do that by yourself? No. So what're you waiting for? Take his hand stupid. You wanna get punched in the face? Yeah, punch your conscious in the face. Real smart. I hate you. Yeah, yeah. Just take the boy's hand.* I sighed and eyed Niall. He looked anxious. I smiled and reached down. I took off my heels, not liking how I towered over him. I threw them in under the island and took his hand and he grinned at me.

     He walked me out to the dance floor and began to dance. He looked quite silly, so I laughed and he blushed. I danced with him for hours. We'd stop every now and then to get a drink and take some shots. We were getting so drunk. I don't remember much of the party after that. I do remember seeing Alexe with Louis and Liam with Carri. The rest is a blur. 

     I woke up the next day in my own bed. I rolled over and stretched and felt that someone was next to me. It was still dark in my room because the curtains were closed. My nightlight was even turned off. I looked for my phone, which was under my pillow and pressed the home button to get some light in the room. I moved my lit phone over to the person next to me. Niall. He had the covers up to his pelvis, so I could see his abs. I watched as his chest rose and fell. I noticed the six pack he had. then I noticed.. Oh God. I looked down at myself and sure enough, I was naked too. Had we slept together? I laid back down because I was dizzy, though I didn't know whether it was because I was hung over or because I'd slept with Niall. When I laid down he turned over and wrapped his arm around me, bringing me closer to him.

     I had to admit it was nice being in his arms. I snuggled up against him. Then I felt his-you know- on my thigh and I gasped. My gasp must've been pretty loud because it woke him up. "Good morning beautiful." he smiled as he stretched, lowering the blanket to reveal everything that was once hiding. I didn't know what to say, so I didn't say anything. I just held the covers up to cover my naked body. "You okay?" he asked resting on his elbow, facing me. I nodded, in a daze. "What's the matter, babe?" he asked, putting a hand on my waist. I jumped slightly at his touch. It sent sparks through my body. "Did we..." I asked, looking at him. He smiled and blushed lightly. "Yeah, we did." he whispered. His smile faded then. "You don't remember?" he asked, almost frowning. I did remember some of it. "I remember walking home with you. And laughing. I remember you carried me through the door like newly weds. I remember you kissing me and coming upstairs. Oh my God! I remember it all. We did all that?" I asked in disbelief. His smile returned on his face, bigger than before. "Yeah, we did." He leaned in and kissed me. I laid down and he was on top of me, still kissing me. He kissed my cheek, then my jaw line, until he got to my ear. "I'm hungry." He whispered and I couldn't help but laugh.

      I got up and threw on under wear and a pair of sweat pants and the tank top he wore under his top last night. It was big on me, but it was comfortable. It smelled like him. His cologne. It wasn't like the cologne I've smelt on other guys. This one was amazing. Yeah, I was big on cologne. I loved the way it made guys smell. You can say it was a turn on for me. I pulled the curtains open when I was sure Niall was decent- he was in nothing but his boxer briefs- and pulled my hair in a pony tail. It had miraculously stayed in tact. I turned around and Niall was inches from me. He was maybe two inches taller than me barefoot. He stared into my eyes and held me close to him. "I'll never forget you again." he said and kissed me. His stomach growled then and he whined, giving me puppy dog eyes. "Okay, okay. I'll go make breakfast!" I giggled and went down stairs. When I got to the kitchen, I noticed that no one was in the house. Then I remembered the family had gone to PR (Puerto Rico) to visit family yesterday.

     "So what do you want?" I asked with a smile. He stared at me for me bit with that half smile he does that makes me melt. "Uh." he chuckled when he snapped out of it. "How about pancakes?" "Stuffed or plain?" I asked as I reached for the pancake mix. When I didn't get a response, I turned to find him staring at me in disbelief, his mouth hanging open. "What?" I asked. "Uhm, stuffed? You can make stuffed pancakes?!" he asked too loudly for my pounding head. I winced and said "Will you please stop yelling? Yes, I can make anything you want. I'll make turkey bacon stuffed pancakes." "I am so lucky to have found you." He whispered and left down the hall. I started to get the mix going and got some strips of turkey bacon cooking. I hated regular bacon. Turkey bacon was the answer to my prayers. Haha. 

     Niall retuned to the kitchen. He took the fork I was using to mix the pancake batter out of my hands and and turned me so I was facing him. He kissed me and handed me some asprin. I looked at his gratefully and popped it in my mouth. I chased it down with some water. I finished cooking and served Niall, hoping he'd like it. He put syrup on the pancake filled with turkey bacon and took the first bit. I anxiously bit my lip waiting his reaction. He swallowed, then dropped his fork and walked over to me. He stood in front of me for a minute, then he took my face in his hands and kissed me passionately. "That's the most amazing pancake I've ever had in my life." He said when he let me go. Then my front door opened and Lyss, Ana, Carri, Alexe, Kenny, Louis, Liam, Zayn, and Harry came in. They all looked as hung over as I was. Then I noticed that Niall didn't look hung over. I looked at him questioningly and, as if he read my mind, he just shot everyone a cocky smile and said "Bitch, I'm Irish." Everyone laughed and Liam playfully punched him in the gut saying "Ah, the ole' luck of the Irish" in his best Irish accent.

   I made more pancakes for everyone and got more compliments on my cooking from the new kids.  Niall and I were cuddled up on the sofa watching TV because we'd already finished. Lyss made her brother clean the house since she cleaned up after his parties. Everyone joined us in the living room except Kenny, who had to go home. Louis and Alexe and Liam and Carri were cuddling with each other. I'd have to get the info from them later. We'd spent the day watching movies from Netflix on the flat screen we had. I snuggled in Niall's arms and he held me. This felt right.

Niall's POV

     Holding Cecilia in my arms felt amazing I never wanted this day to end. I was falling. Hard. I know I'll be keeping my promise. I'll never forget her again. I never wanted to lose her.
