Summer Nights With One Direction

Amy is prepared for a fun filled summer in London with her Mom. Just hours before their flight, Amy's Mom suddenly cancels due to a work emergency, and her best friend, Tessa, offers to come along instead. They plan for lots of exciting adventures during their trip to London that will make this summer the best one yet. But they definitely aren't expecting to spend their amazing summer nights with the boys from One Direction. Throughout the summer, both girls fall in love and experience some incredible things that they never planned. What will happen when they have to return to their noisy hometown in New York, and leave those delightful summer nights (and their new best friends) behind?


2. Rainy Days Can be Good

The plane ride was great. We slept during most of it, and only woke up to eat pretzels and drink water. When we finally landed, Tessa woke me up and we waited forever just to get off the plane. We grabbed our luggage and scurried through the airport. When we reached the nearest entrance, I saw rain pouring through the glass. Great, I thought to myself. This is the perfect way to kick off our amazing vacation. We sighed and ran through the rain after putting on our matching grey hoodies that we'd gotten last summer. We ended up standing under a awning where the bus stop was. We waved over a cab and hopped in. "Can you take us to the nearest drug store, please?" Tessa asked the driver. He looked very tired and stressed. He nodded and began to drive through the traffic full of honking cars and loud people.

"Why a drug store?" I asked Tessa, who was sitting back with closed eyes.

"We need stuff for the hotel. Like, shampoo and stuff. Ooh and candy!" She shot her head up. Her eyes looked childish.

"Okay, I guess. But I'm hungry so after that lets get some real food."

"Fine with me." she rested her head back again and let out a long irritated sigh.

"What's wrong?"

"I just thought it'd be sunny. You know? The rain just ruins the whole 'summer vacation' theme."

"Yeah it sucks. Maybe we'll get something good out of it though."

"I can't wait to see what can boost my mood right now." She played with the tips of her hair and scrunched her eyebrows.  

"Here's a piece of gum." I took my pack of gum out of my pocket and shoved a piece in her mouth and chuckled..

"Yay!" she smiled. We laughed and I stuck my headphones in my ear. Since about two weeks ago, I was suddenly interested in One Direction, the British boy band. A thought came across my mind that we had a chance to meet them this summer, but then I remembered that they lived in a completely different part of London. I pushed the thought away and focused on the music.


I hummed the lyrics to 'What Make You Beautiful." to myself and Tessa started singing it aloud. The driver gave her a funny look through the rear view mirror. I laughed a little and joined her and we sang "Na na na na na na na na na na!" The driver pulled into the parking lot of the drug store and I paused the song on my I-Pod. Tessa handed him some cash, then we exited the car and removed our bags from the trunk. We dragged them around the store and grabbed what we needed, (including the candy). We also bought a map and when we left,  we held the map in front of us and made confused faces.


"How the hell do you read this?" she questioned. I noticed that the rain had stopped a bit.

"I have no clue." We looked up to see three teenage girls crying. "Umm..." 

"I don't even wanna know."  We walked up to them anyway and they ignored us. 

"Did you see how p-perfect he was?" Said one of them. "And N-Niall's accent was making me melt!" another one added. Their stutters were filled with sobs and it was actually kinda funny. Their shirts had pictures of the boys on them and they wore bracelets with their names on them. I looked up at Tessa and her eyes grew wider than I'd ever seen them. My stomach dropped and my hands started shaking. One direction was obviously somewhere around here...


We started to cross the street when a car turned the corner and drove straight towards us. Tessa screamed loudly and suddenly I was lifted off of my feet. My eyes were shut, so I didn't exactly know what was going on. I assumed that I was dying, but I wasn't. Then I fell to the ground and I felt weight on top of me. I looked up and saw bright green eyes staring into mine. I was breathing heavily and my body felt weak. "Are you alright, love?" he stood up and I got a better look at him. It was Harry Styles. He reached his hand out and I took it, then he helped me up. I looked around for Tessa. Harry saw me searching for her so he said, "She's right there." then he pointed to something behind me. I spun around and saw her staring at us. She was standing there with an awkward face, and her eyes shifted to Zayn's who'd been watching her the whole time as he stood beside her. She ran over to me and smushed me into a big hug.

"Act cool." She whispered in my ear. I nodded slightly, completely bewildered of what had just happened. I turned around and smiled at Harry. He smiled back with his dazzling teeth. I was speechless. Just then, three more boys, Liam, Niall, and Louis came running across the street.

"What happened?" Liam asked, patting Harry on the back.

"Um, these girls were about to get hit by a maniac driver." He looked down. Everyone looked at us.

"Thank you." I said, letting out a breath. "So much."

"It's no problem, as long as you're alright. Are you?"

"Uh, yes. Yes I'm fine."

"Me too." Tessa chirped.


After many awkward moments of silence, "You're bags are right there." Zayn said, pointing to the curb, where our bags were scattered. "Are you here on vacation?" he asked. We nodded. "From where?"

"New York." We both said. 

"I love New York, it's really exciting!" Niall said, revealing his cute Irish accent.

"Yeah..." I answered. 

"Erm, you've got a little cut on your chin." I placed my finger below my mouth and felt something warm and wet.

"Ew." I giggled a bit and looked up at Harry. I had stuffed a couple of napkins in my pocket from the plane ride, so I took one out and wiped the blood off of my chin. "All better." 

"Not exactly. Its still bleeding." he flipped his hair, and his scent flew around in the air. I loved it. "You wanna come home with us? I can take a look at that for you." he grinned.


"Oh um, its okay, I'm sure I'll be fine." Tessa tugged on my hair, "I mean... um,"

"Just say yes, Harry here obviously has a little crush on you." Louis said, and ruffled Harry's hair, causing him to flip it again.

"Okay." I smiled and turned around to see Zayn whispering in Tessa's ear. She nodded and he winked at her.
