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.


3. Party Anyone?


     It's been a little over a week since I met Niall. He never called and I didn't want to call because I knew he was probably busy being in a band. But he could've texted me. Something! Anything... Ugh! Why do guys do that?! They get your hopes up just to shoot you down! I should've known he didn't really want to see me again. Who would? I mean, I'm not the prettiest girl in the world. And I'm not the skinniest. I'm not fat or anything, I'm thick but fit. I have a flat tummy, with curves. It's not easy losing weight for me. I refuse to give up good food and working out isn't as easy and fun as the people on TV make it seem. But I do it anyway.

     Back to what I was saying. I should've known Niall fucking Horan wouldn't want to see me again. He has thousands of girls throwing themselves at him. And he has plenty of celebrity friends. For God's sakes Demi Lovato had his attention, and I don't blame him. She's beautiful. Randy did the same thing to me. We've been friends since middle school. He promised me that he'd marry me so that no body would ever hurt me. He promised. *He lied. I know. We could never trust him again, you know that right? And you are? Your conscious. Oh..Hey there. How's it going? I could be bett-* I think I was dropped when I was a baby. I'm having a mental conversation with my conscious. So cool.

     I lay in my bed just staring at the wall thinking about all this. I hadn't left my house in, like, four days because honestly I had no reason to. I didn't have a job. I'd graduated high school three weeks ago. And I just didn't want to go out there. I felt so stupid. I fell for Randy and that bit me in the ass, and then I fell for Niall's bullshit. 

     My phone buzzed, grabbing my attention. I reached for it and it was a text from Lyss. "I miss you." I read it and put my phone down, rolling over to my stomach. I noticed how dark it was in my room, besides the light from my nightlight. Yes. I sleep with a nightlight. Problem? You mad? Psh... My curtains were closed and my lights were off. I'd even unplugged my clock. I didn't care what time it was. Another buzz. I checked it again, the light burning my eyes. I decided to lower the brightness on my phone all the way down. Much better. I read the text. "That's it!!" I threw the phone down again and continued thinking again.

     10 minutes later I heard the door downstairs open and close, footsteps coming up the stairs and walking down the hall. It sounded like there was more than one person walking down the hall. Then they stopped. The next thing I knew, my curtains were suddenly drawn open. "THE LIGHT! IT BURNS!" I screamed, scrambling to get under the covers of my queen sized bed. "You need to snap out of this Cecilia! You've been in here for a almost a week!" Lyss said, taking a seat at the end of my bed. "We miss you. You haven't texted or called any of us." Ana added. "We were convinced you'd been abducted by slimy purple aliens... What?" said another voice, the last part in her own defence. I peeked from under the covers to discover that the mystery voice came from none other then Caroline. "Carri!!" I squealed. "I've missed you too, Ceci." she giggled while I embraced her in a hug. Caroline was another friend of Lyss, Ana, and I. She'd graduated high school with us and we were all inseparable . 

     While I took a shower, Carri, Ana, and Lyss were waiting in my room. I stepped out the shower and heard murmuring. I wrapped myself in my towel and pressed my ear against the door. 

"Should we check it?" Ana asked.

"No, Carri. Don't" Lyss yell/whispered.

"It's a text from Randy." Carri said with disgust.


"Well? What does it say?" Ana pried.

" 'Hey beautiful. I miss you. I was thinking about the first night we spent together five months ago and what we were doing. I miss that. Come over tonight? Let's do it again. Don't worry, I have everything we need. Just bring yourself and that beautiful body of yours. See you around 8? I love you.' Winkey face, winkey face." Carri read. "Ugh! He's so gross."

     I couldn't listen anymore. I got dressed and wiped the tears from my face before walking out the bathroom. "Miss me?" I joked hoping it would cover the fact that I'd been crying, and walked over to my blow dryer. The girls giggled. Carri was laying on my bed flicking through TV channels, Lyss was sitting at the window looking at her phone, and Ana was sitting next to Carri reading a magazine. I dried and curled my hair. "So what're we doing today?" I said, resting my hands on my hips. "I sent the rest of the crew an alert. Bangarang is hosting a party at my place tonight. You're coming." Lyss demanded and glaring at me with a smirk on her face, daring me to protest. I sighed, grabbed Ana and and walked over to my closet.

Niall's POV:

     I heard a sound but I couldn't make out what it was. I was sleeping so I didn't bother going to investigate. I heard it again, it got louder. I sighed and opened my eyes. It sounded like it was coming from my hotel window. "The fuck is that?" I thought to myself. I walked over to the window and opened the curtains. A smile creeped onto my face as I saw at least 30 fans outside our hotel. I backed away from the window before I could be seen and shook my head, smiling. My girls are crazy, standing out there so early in the morning.  

     I walked over to my phone to check the time but saw I had a text message. From Cecilia. Who's Cecilia? I clicked on the contact information and gasped. She was beautiful and she looked so familiar. It hit me like a smack in the face. The girl from Coney Island. I'd forgotten all about her. Why's she texting me now? We met like a week ago. Not that I'm any better. 

     I opened the message. "It's Lyss" Her friend that Harry fancied. "Party at my place. Ceci will be there, you can count on it. The party won't disappoint, it never does. Here's the address. Hope you can make it. If not, your loss." Well then. A party huh? I locked my phone and almost threw it back on the bed when I remembered I was supposed to have checked the time.  1:00 pm. So walked over to Liam's door, since all our rooms were connected, and knocked before I entered. "We got anything planned for today, mate?" I asked as I walked over to his bed where he was laying down and doing something on his phone. "Well hello to you too." he said as he sat up and rested on his elbows. "And no. We're off today and tomorrow." "You remember those girls from Coney Island?" I asked after spending about an hour watching TV with him in bed. "The girls we had dinner with?" he asked. "Yeah. Well, they're having a party tonight. I was thinking about going." "Cool. I'll tell the other lads and we'll go together." Liam said, flicking through the channels. "Alright." I said and left back to my room. "We're in." I texted back to the number Lyss included in the text from Ceci's phone.

     I decided to pass the time by spending some time with my girls downstairs. They'd been waiting all the time and I wanted to thank them. I brushed my teeth and did my hair and headed down to the girls. I stood down there for about an hour and a half taking pictures and talking to the girls. Harry, Louis, and Zayn came down and joined me. After a while we headed back and I told them about the party and they agreed to go. When we got upstairs, everyone started to get ready. I had some explaining to do.


A/N: Did I lose you yet? I hope not. This one's not my best. Sorry. It'll pick up next chapter, I promise. :) Thanks for reading. Hope you guys like it and stick around. Sorry again.
