Moments In Time

Chelsea was just an normal girl with an obse... ahem... dedication with the biggest boy band of the generation... One Direction. But as soon as the five-some arrive in Melbourne, Australia, Chelsea's life is turned upside down. Meeting up with them is once-in-a-lifetime... but when more opportunities pop up, it seems too good to be true.



Our driver kept driving until he stopped abruptly.

"Hey, why'd we stop?" I asked.

"Oh yeah, we forgot to mention..." Louis snickered, "We have a few guests joining us..."

"What guests? Are they, like, famous or something?" I questioned.

"Close..." Louis smirked, "Actually, no... not really."

"It's-" Zayn started.

"MIA!" I screamed as I looked out the window and saw Mia bolting down the driveway. I jumped out and Mia started to hyperventilate. 


I cooked up a nice outfit for one of the best days of my life. It went sorta like this...
It went with a Comme Des Jarcons Play singlet and a smexy pair of denim shorts.. Along with that, I wore my suprè varsity jacket and some cream coloured sandals. To top it off, I wore a nice necklace with (you guessed it) a green Irish clover charm.  I straightened my hair, tied it up and applied no make up at all, due to a rumor I heard about Niall not liking girls with HEAPS of makeup. Instead, I applied some lip balm and perfume. 

"Mia! Chelsea and the boys just turned the corner to the court!" my mum called.

I leaped up from my bed and bolted down the hallway. My mum slowed me down and smiled, "Mia, calm down. I know your meeting One Direction and all, but don't act too obses-"

"Dedicated. Dedicated is the word, mum," I corrected.

My mum grinned and kissed the top of my forehead, "Just be careful, ok? Oh yeah, and good luck with Niall!"

A huge grin stretched across my face and I bolted out the door. I full-on sprinted down the driveway and Chelsea jumped out of the legendary Volkswagen van.

"Chels!" I screamed as I wrapped my arms around her.

"Mia!" she yelled as she hugged me back. Chelsea gripped my arms and shook me, "Ok, act cool Mima. One Direction are sitting in the very van behind me, no biggie... right?"

I started to hyperventilate, "Yep! No biggie at all! They're just the biggest boy band in history, of course it's no biggie!"

Chelsea laughed and ushered me over to the sliding door, "Mia, meet One Direction.

Chelsea did it. She slid the door open with a swift tug and I came face to face with them. Liam was peeking his head around the seat, because he was sitting in the front. They all opened their mouths and spoke,

"Hi Mia!" 

I couldn't speak, they were absolute angels. A tear of happiness slid down my cheek, I didn't realize that I was crying before I burst into tears.



Chelsea had leapt out of the van like there's no tomorrow. I sat in the van and drummed my fingers on my knee. 

It was beginning to get awkward, so I yelled my favourite catchphrase, "CHEESEBURGERS AND JELLYBABYS!" 

The boys burst into laughter and Louis grinned, "Your right Niall, it was starting to get a bit awkward..."

"Ever since Chelsea left,  hey Louis!" Harry giggled as he nudged Lou.

Zayn stomped on Harry's foot signalling him to shut up and Louis went red in the face. 

Harry gripped his knee and started to whine like a little child, "Ouch! That hurt! LLLLIIIIAAAAMMM! Zayn hurt meeee!" 

"Zayn, don't be mean or I'll take your mirror away from you," Liam ordered.

"YOU MONSTER!" Zayn cried.

"You can't do that to Zayn!" Louis yelled, "You'll break his fragile, reflective heart!"

"Shh! Here she comes!" Liam whispered.

Harry asked, "Is she hot? What does she look like? Does she look older then me?

"Yeah, like Caroline Flack was..." Zayn grumbled.

"OOOOOOOHHH burn!" Louis wooped, "Sorry Hazza, but it was pretty good..."

"Shut up!" I hissed to everyone as Chelsea started to speak.

"...Mia, meet One Direction..."

As soon as that sliding door slid open, the boys and I cried "HEY MIA!". But as soon as I laid eyes on her, she was one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen! Brown  hair... dazziling brown eyes that were totally attractive... she belonged in some sort of dream. She broke into tears of joy, but Chelsea had her a tissue in which she had prepared.

She hopped in next to me, it was going to be a tight squeeze. I held my hand out and grinned.

"Hi," I introduced, "I'm Niall..." 


Niall held out his hand and said, "Hi, I'm Niall."

I was seriously about to die, but I kept calm and collected, until I stupidly replied, "I know..."

Niall flashed his one-of-a-kind smile, "So... your Mia Horan?"

My. Overies. Just. Exploded. Then. I. Just. Died. Niall. Horan. Called. Me. Mia. Horan.

"Hahah... close," I replied, "But I wouldnt mind being called Mia Horan any day..." Then I remembered that I'd forgotten my manners, "Thanks boys for arranging this... it means a lot. Chelsea, Julia and I had been directioners forever... but we'd never have thought we'd meet you."

"JULIA'S COMING ASWELL? Why didn't anyone tell me these things?" Chelsea cried.

"Hey, no sweat, Mia!" Zayn said, "We're just trying to accomplish dreams!"

"No, no, no... thank YOU Mia for being a fan from the start. It means a lot to us," Liam corrected.

The car was shaken into life and we started driving off towards Julia's house. I traced the edge of the window, "So, this is the volkswagen van used in the What Makes You Beautiful film clip?"

"Yep!" Harry replied.

"And you sat in THESE VERY SEATS for your single picture?" 

"Yep!" Harry again replied.

Louis flicked his hair, "Well, we tried hauling the big red bus over to Australian shores but then we thought to our selves that wouldn't really work!"

Everyone erupted into a wave of laughter and Chelsea poked her head around Harry's smexy body.

"I. Love. You!" I mouthed.

"That's. Good." Chelsea mouthed back.

I leaned back into my seat and enjoyed the ride next to Niall Horan. I shook my head at some stage to see if this was really happening. It was, I was living the dream. 


I applied the last spray of perfume to my neck. 
I checked my look in the mirror and smiled to my self. I looked great, so great I could maybe snag one of the boys. 
I wore a plain white t-shirt with a thin jumper that had white lining around the sides. With that I wore some dark blue shorts and some AWESOME vans shoes that I had picked up somewhere. I wore a black scarf (on a hot day, I know) and a beret that sat nicely on top of my head. I looked HOT!
My mum wasn't home, she was at work, and my dad had gone out somewhere. I was thankful of that, he would of had a gun ready when Chelsea, Mia and the boys pulled up.
My phone buzzed on my desk, which caused me to jump up in fright.

From: Chelsea

just pulled up, get everything ready girl... this is actually happening! :D 8:29a.m.

I grabbed my already packed shoulder bag and hurried though my house. A knock echoed through the hallway, causing Bax (my dog) to bark.

"Shh! Bax!" I hissed. I grabbed the front door handle and swung it open. There stood Mia and Chelsea, waiting at the door. They all flung into my arms and I savored the moment. 

"This is really happening, isn't it?" I asked.

Mia pointed down towards the a-waiting volkswagen. The boys crowded around the van, waving and whooping with their British and Irish accents. I breathed in and out, then wiped the sweat off of my brow. I bent down to my dog who was busy jumping up on Chelsea and smiled, "Bax, go inside. I'm going now..."

I patted his tiny head and pointed into the doorway. He did what he was told, I shut and locked the door behind him.

"C'mon!" Mia cried.

Mia and Chelsea bolted down the stairs, meeting up with the boys down  at the bottom. I quickly followed them. I got closer to the REAL boys... and closer... and closer... and closer...

... before I lost my balance.


I saw Julia running down those steps to the driveway before the unthinkable happened. Time seemed to slow down when she lost her footing. I heard everyone gasp and I didn't know what to do! Without thinking, I leapt forward and held out my arms, hoping I could avoid her getting injured. I caught her in my arms in the nick of time, holding her whole body up. Her captivating green eyes flickered open and she smiled, so did I.

"Hey Julia," I said, "You alright?"

Julia laughed, "I'm fine, thanks for saving my face."

I winked, "Anytime, love." 

I wanted to hold her forever but I had to let her go otherwise it would be awkward. I pushed her up to her feet and I brushed a hair from her face.

"Be careful next time your running down stairs. I might not be there to save you again," I warned in a friendly tone.

Julia laughed once more and Louis and Harry clapped their hands.

"Great show, old boy! How dramatic!" Louis yelled in a funny accent.

"I most agree, Mr. Tomlinson!" Harry said as he continued the joke.

I hushed them and all of us jumped into the van. On the side closest to the front of the van, sat Louis, Niall and Mia. On the opposite side sat Chelsea, Julia, Zayn and Harry. We laughed and joked around the whole trip. I had to ask my self a few times, was I falling for Julia?
