When Bethany goes on a cruise for two weeks, she gets a sudden surprise. Turns out her favorite band, One Direction, is on the cruise as well! When she runs into a blonde Irish boy from the band, how will she react? And what will happen in the end?


4. A pleasant day.

~Bethany's P.O.V.~

I stood frozen for what seemed like ages.  Mom called to ask me where I had gone.  I told her I was just exploring, and that if she needed anything to call me.  I finally left the roof and went down to the deck.  There was a huge pool with chairs surrounding it.  I saw people laughing and splashing each other all around.  I walked the length of the boat and noticed there were lots of things to do.  In one room, there was nothing but TVs and video game systems.  In another room there were  board games and air hockey tables.  There was even a gym! I kept walking and came to a kitchen.  It looked like my friend's kitchen from home. 

When I got to the end of the boat, I looked out over the horizon.  The sun was starting to set, and it was beautiful.  I heard someone walk up behind me. 

"Hello Miss." A boy said standing beside me.  He looked to be a year or two older than me.  He had brown hair and was wearing an apron.  

"Can I help you?" I asked.

" I was just wondering if you would be able to help me out tomorrow morning." He looked down at the ground as he said it.

"What is it that you need?"

" Well, you see, I work in the restaurant down below the deck, and one of our waiters got sick.  We just need someone to fill in tomorrow morning.  You'd be paid for your services, and you can keep any tips you make."

I thought it over for a minute.  What could it hurt?  "All right." I finally said.  "What time do I need to be down there?"

He smiled warmly at me. "Thank you so much miss. If you could come down about 7:30 that would be great."

"Okay.  What do I need to wear?"  

"You can wear whatever you want.  You'll get an apron to keep you clean."

"All right." I said nodding.

We shook hands as the sun disappeared below the water.

~Niall's P.O.V.~

It was dark now.  The boys and I had spent the remaining of our afternoon signing autographs and taking pictures as a group.  When we were finished with that, we got something to eat and headed to our room.  Everyone was laying on their beds watching some movie Zayn had brought with him.  I looked down to see I had dropped a piece of food on my shirt.  I threw it in the trash can beside my bed and went back to my dinner.

"So tell me." Liam said walking over to me.  He laid down on the bed beside me and continued eating his food. "Who was that you were with on the roof earlier?"

I looked away from the TV and into Liam's eyes. He took another bite of his food, waiting for an answer. "Her name is Bethany." I looked back over to the TV.

"Bethany?  Why were you two on the roof?"

"It was a place to get away from all the girls." I said looking back over at him.

"It seemed to work." Liam chuckled a bit. "Did you have a good time?"

"Yeah.  She's a very nice girl."

"Good.  I'm glad you had a nice time.  Maybe you'll see her again."  He smiled at me.  I couldn't help but smile back. "Well, I'm gonna get some rest."  Liam stood up and tossed his paper plate into the trash can.  "I suggest you do the same."  He walked over to his bed and crawled under the covers.  

I looked around the room.  Zayn had already fallen asleep, leaving his plate of food on his bedside table.  Harry and Louis were still watching the movie.  The light had been turned off by now.  The only light in the room was the glow from the television.  I threw my plate in the trash and pulled off my shirt.  I threw it in the floor and pulled the blankets up around me.  I rolled over to face the wall, blocking out the glow from the TV.  As I replayed the events of the day, I slowly drifted off to sleep.
