Fighting For Love

One Direction fanfic. 17 year old Adriana was kicked out from her house by her parents for getting into trouble. Her parents got her an apartment to help her in Chicago, since then she has been living with her best friend, Danni. When Adriana went out for a run, she had no idea what was going to happen and how much 5 boys could change her entire life, but would it be for the best or for the worst? (Trust me the story's better)


73. Grand Ballroom

Danni's POV

"Wake up!" I shook the guys to wake up. It was about three in the afternoon and I had to leave soon to go with Adriana and Mandy.

"A few more minutes." Harry told me and Zayn threw a pillow at me. I made an 'o' with my mouth. "Okay, I gave you my bed and let you sleep in, and you hit me with a pillow? Get up!" I pushed Louis and he opened his eyes and rolled off the bed. 

"Why?" I heard Liam grumble as he rubbed his eyes. 

"I have to leave. Please, please don't make a mess. You have to be gone by seven that's when my parents come, my sister and brother are with their friends and they're sleeping over with them. I left food in the kitchen. I have to go, please be ready for the party too."  I sounded like such a mom. I laughed quickly and I felt Niall poke me, "We'll be ready. Don't worry." He kissed my cheek and I smiled. 

"Alright then. I have to go." I had everything set, my dress and other things along with it were in the car. I walked out of the room, and outside to my car.   

Adriana's POV

I was stressing out, Mandy and I were waiting for Danni. We had been setting up this place for everything, we put tables up. The DJ was setting up his equipment, Max was helping catering and Danni was suppose to be here by now to help us. 

I saw Danni running to us from the long stairs, "Oh my god! I'm so sorry- This place is huge..." Her voice echoed through the ballroom as she looked around, admiring every single detail.  

"Yes, very big. Now can you please start putting these on the stairs, it makes it look more dramatic." Mandy handed her a bucket of who knows what and Danni took it, running back to the long stairs. "Mandy, I thought you said the lighting guy was coming at three!" I paced and pulled out my phone ready to dial their number. 

"He's on his way. Okay? Help me put the red carpet." I sighed and we tugged on a red carpet on the other side of the grand ballroom. This place was stunning, it just took my breath away. There were six large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and on the walls of the top floor the wall were designed with vintage flower spiraling from the bottom and to the top there was gold colored spirals and it went all the way to the ceiling.  The walls down here were almost the same, just a bit lighter toned. It was gorgeous. Max interrupted my thoughts and I immediately let go of the carpet and walked to him. 

"Where do I put this?" As I got closer he smiled and I took the big bowls and the bags wrapped around his arm.  "The other guys are bringing the rest." He told me and I put it down on the table where the snacks would go. I sighed a breath of relief, we still had four hours... No need to panic.  

The lighting guys made it, but an hour late. They showed us how to control everything, once they left, everyone would start to come in just a few minutes.  As I walked to the top of the stairs I looked at everything, it seemed good. We did it. Two months of planning and we did it.  I have Mandy a thumbs up and she cheered, "I'm going to get changed!" She ran up the stairs. 

I couldn't wait to change, I was so excited to see everyone, for most likely, the last time. I called for Danni and she was on her way to the rooms on the other side. 

"Can you start the music when people come in? Max there's a huge group of people outside, the bodyguard should have gotten the invitations from all of them. Let them in please?" Max nodded and the DJ put in one of the CD's Mandy made for the beginning. Max was already changed into his devil costume and wore his mask to cover himself. I smiled big and ran to the same room as Danni. 

When I got there I saw Danni putting on her heels, she looked amazing! 

I quickly grabbed my dress from the bag and slipped it on, which took forever. It still had the same detail as before, the beautiful encrusted detail in it. I loved it! As I put on my shoes along with it, I started on my make up. Mandy and Danni were ready and they walked out, "Well be down there, see you in a bit!" Mandy told me as she walked out. The music was pumping and as she opened the door the music flooded the room.  I saw the dark ballroom and the colorful lights flashing everywhere. I couldn't wait to see it all.  I finished the last bit of my make up and I grabbed my mask. As I put it on, I looked at myself and promised that I was going to have a lot of fun tonight no mater what.  I took a long breath and made my way to the door.   


Harry's POV

"Ready?" Louis asked and I smiled, hoping for the best. The doors opened largely and there we saw everyone dancing and having the time of their lives. The ballroom was full and it looked fantastic. I was covered with a mask, so no one could see that I was here, all I was to them was a student, classmate. We had all come in masks, the five of us walked down the stairs catching a few stares from people, probably wondering who we were.  I was wearing my black and white suit, with a bow tie. Liam had come with an all black suit with a cape as Batman. Niall was in an all white and gold mask, as an angel. It suited him well. We all looked pretty dazzling, I chuckled at myself. 

My only goal tonight was to find Adriana. I looked over to Zayn who was also planning the same thing and we both stared at each other and went separate ways. 

I walked to the right, looking for her. What would I say, what would I do? These questions bobbled my mind. Truthfully my heart was beating hard, I found it hard to breath, and my stomach flipped around. I saw so many people and I went through all of them. All Danni had said was that I'd know who Adriana was if I saw her. That's all she told us. I wish she could have appeared in front of me casually asking if I'm having a fun time.  


Everyone had a mask, some took them off finding their partner and giving them a hug. The music was surrounding me and all the lights flashed before my eyes. I looked up, and saw someone walking down the stairs. See, now that I knew was Danni. I wonder where she would find Niall.  I continued walking around, I saw Liam up ahead of me talking to some people. I walked to him and put my hand on his shoulder. 

"I can't seem to find her." The people who he had been talking to stared at us. I smiled quickly at them, and glanced back at Liam. 

"You'll find her mate. She's around here." He continued talking and I made my way to get a drink. I took a cup and poured the drink into it. 

"She's coming, don't worry." I looked next to me and saw Danni.  "Thank you." I gave her a quick hug, and took a sip of my drink. 

"Have you found Niall?" I asked as she shook her head. Her head moved one way and I saw a smile appear on her face. I looked her way and saw angel Niall, talking to people and laughing.  "I think I just did."  She made her way to him and I continued to look around.  

Niall's POV

"The guy slipped up and I took the ball and went running!" I listened to this lad who played football before. I laughed as he continued and I felt hands wrap around my hand. I looked next to me and saw a girl with the prettiest brown eyes, beautiful hair, and gorgeous dress. Danni. I smiled at her and gave her a kiss. 

"You look flawless sweetheart." I told her as she lifted her mask up.  I followed her movement and she beamed, hugging me tight. I had come here to see her in her dress, she looked absolutely beautiful. 

"An angel, adorable. I especially love your wings." She pulled on them and I chuckled. 

"You look beautiful, this is the most perfect moment." I made my way to her waist and spun her, listening to beat of the music. Danni laid her head on my chest and I could smell her perfume. I wanted nothing but to be next to her.

She moved her lips to my ear, whispering, "I love you." I loved hearing her soft delicate voice, "I love you too."   

Zayn's POV I looked around everywhere, I caught Harry looking at me across the room. His glance was frustrating, I wanted to find her first. I wanted to tell her I loved her. I needed to. She needed to know that I could never hate her and I planned on making it right tonight. I wanted her to realize I wanted nothing more but her.  Someone bumped into me and I turned around to see a girl a bit shorter than me.  "Sorry." She told me before she walked off in front of me.  I ignored it and I heard the sound of a mic being fixed.   

"Uh, hi, guys! Having fun?" Everyone yelled, I went along and cheered with them. 

"I did this party for everyone because hey, I guess I just missed all of you. We all missed each other. Tonight we have fun and enjoy probably the last moments of being a high schooler." The girl went on and I listened carefully to her. The people around me also did too.  "I just wanted to say a big thank you to my gorgeous friend, Danni. For helping me..." A light shined on Danni, she looked great. I noticed she had found Niall and they were together. Danni smiled at the girl at the mic and she smiled back. People clapped and clapped, "Also, one last person... My dear friend, Adriana." My head snapped up looking at the girl.


"She had helped me so much too. Nothing would have made this night except for Danni and Adriana." She clapped and the light stayed on Danni and I looked everywhere to see where the other light went to... Suddenly a light flickered to the top of the first floor and there she was.   


Adriana's POV

A bright light shined and I looked down seeing all the people. I smiled and I continued to walk, making my way to the stairs. "Thank you guys for helping me." Mandy said and everyone clapped.  I finally made it to the stairs and I walked down, I saw Max in his costume and I smiled even bigger.  Max smiled and stuck his hand out.  Don't wake me up by Chris Brown started to play and I realized that, this was the most perfect way to spend an anniversary.  I took Max's hand and gave him a kiss. I wrapped my hands around his neck, and he held on as best he could to my waist. The dress was puffy so it was a bit hard for him to grab onto me. 

"Get it, bro!"

We heard a guy yell, I assumed one of Max's buddies. We both pulled away and he took my hand, laughing. Everyone soon went back to their own thing and I looked Danni, she came next to me and smiled. 

"Amazing."  "This is going to be one of the best nights ever." I told her and she laughed as we both went off and started dancing.  "You know you do look amazing. The dress... Wow." Max said over the music and I blushed. I hoped he wouldn't see.  "Hi Adriana!" I waved to the girls and they smiled kindly.   

At this point was so tired of dancing, I was getting a drink. Everyone looked so happy and it was obvious everyone was having a good time. 

"Hi."  A voice came next to me and I looked at them. I smiled, "Hi." I didn't know who it was but I liked their black suit. 

"Hey babe." Max came from behind me and held onto me.  "Hey." I put my hands on top of his. The person who had said hi to me immediately walked away. 

"Who was that?" Max asked and I shrugged. "I forgot to tell you happy one year anniversary." I smiled and turned around.  "Happy one year." I hugged him and everything seemed so perfect.  He pulled away from me and gave me a smile. I smiled back, what was that? 

"Want to dance?" I nodded, I could do a few more now that I've rested.
