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?


14. Asking permission

~Bethany's P.O.V.~ 

I blinked a couple of times, slowly waking up.  

"Morning." I heard a gruff voice say.  I looked up into Niall's eyes and realized I was laying on his chest.  

"I'm sorry!" I said quickly setting up.  "I didn't realize-"

"It's perfectly fine." He said setting up beside me.  "I didn't mind at all."  I smiled at him and hopped out of bed. 

We got dressed and waited for Liam to call.  He called and told us to meet him at the ship.  When we saw him, he rushed up to both of us, asking if we were okay.  We assured him we were and got our tickets.  I asked him how it went with my mom, and he said it wasn't a problem at all.  He said she didn't even ask any questions.  I thanked him again and made my way onto the ship.  Niall and Liam followed after me.  

"Where are you going?" Niall called after me.  I stopped and turned around.

"I don't really know." I replied.  I was just walking around the boat without a sense of direction.  "Where are you going?"

"I was following you."

"Oh.." I looked around the boat.  Liam had left and told us he was going to call Daniel.  He said the other boys were going shopping on the island later.  "I'm going to talk to my mom for a minute.  Wanna come?"

He hesitated for a minute, looking confused.  "Uh... Would that be okay?"

"Yeah.  I'm just gonna make sure everything is all right.  You could meet her."

"All right then." 

We went up to my room and opened the door.  I heard the shower going and figured it was Dad.  Mom was setting in a chair by the window, reading some magazine.  

"Hey Mom." I said walking in, practically dragging Niall behind me.

"Oh hi, Dear.  Who is this?" she asked.

"Mom, this is my..." I looked over at Niall, not knowing what he wanted me to call him.

"You see ma'am," Niall butted in. "I was wondering if it would be all right if I took your daughter on a date?"

My mom stared at Niall for a minute. A smile slowly spread across her face.  "And what's your name again?" she asked him.

"Niall, ma'am.  Niall Horan."  He held out his hand towards my mom.

~Niall's P.O.V~

I stood there, waiting for a response from Bethany's mom.  Finally, she stood up and hugged me.  I stood frozen for a minute, my hand still extended for a handshake.  I slowly wrapped my arms around her mom and waited for her to let go.  

"Well Niall," she said finally releasing me. "I reckon it would be all right.  Just don't stay out too long."

"Of course ma'am." I said nodding.

"Great." I heard Bethany say.  I felt her hand slip into mine and give it a squeeze. She tugged a little bit, and I followed her towards the door.  "See you later Mom. Love you!" Bethany lead me out into the hall and shut the door.  

"So what do you want to do?" I asked her.

"It doesn't matter.  What did you have in mind?"

"I'll think of something." I smiled at her and lead the way to the deck.  I had the perfect idea.
