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?


16. First Date

~Bethany's P.O.V~ 

When we stepped inside of the aquarium, my breath was taken away.  It was so beautiful.  There were tanks that reached the ceiling everywhere.  In one fish tank there were red fish that darted in and out of view.  In another, there were bright pink ones that didn't pay much attention to anything at all.  My favorite were the blue ones that came to glass when you walked by.  I pressed my finger to the tank and they all swarmed around it.  I smiled and turned to Niall.

"Isn't this amazing?" I asked.

"It's great." He said studying a yellow fish.  "Wanna go check everything out?"

"I thought we were going to swim with the dolphins?" 

"We can still do that too.  Would you rather do that or look around first?"

"Let's swim with the dolphins first."

"Alright.  Dolphins it is."

He grabbed my hand and lead me over the front desk.  After asking about the dolphins, we were given directions as to where to go.  We followed the instructions and found ourselves wandering down a hall.  We saw a sign that said you could swim with dolphins, and we went into the door.  A man greeted us and told us to get ready.  He said we weren't aloud to wear our bathing suites and gave us a suite to put on.  

We put them on and followed the mans instructions on what to do.  After some time, we became relaxed with the dolphins and began to enjoy everything.  One dolphin in particular seemed quite pleased with Niall.  Every time it came around, Niall would laugh and pet it.  We spent an hour or two with dolphins before we decided we had had enough fun with them.

After we were dressed again, we went back out into the main aquarium.   Bethany's hair was wet and pulled back into a ponytail.  She joked around and told me I needed a haircut.  I didn't doubt it.  I ran my fingers through my hair and grabbed her hand.  I had already bought our tickets for the aquarium so we went on in.  

I could tell Bethany was amazed by everything.  She kept saying how everything was so amazing and beautiful.  Her eyes shone the whole time we were there.  We took our time walking through the aquarium.  I could see people walking past us in a hurry to get through everything, but we didn't care.  We took the time to read the notes below the tanks, and watch how the fish reacted.  It was great.

At one place in the aquarium, you could even pet stingrays.  Bethany pulled me over to the water and plunged her hand it, gently stroking the rays back.  

"Come on." she said turning back to smile at me.

I slowly put my hand in the water.  Gently, I moved my hand to pet the stingray.  It felt cold and slimy in a way.

"Isn't it cool?" Bethany asked looking bewildered. 

"It's awesome." I said petting it again.

After we finished there, we made our way through the rest of the aquarium.  We stopped at every tank to take a look inside.  It was more interesting with Bethany there.  She made everything more exciting.  If I had come with the boys or by myself, I probably would've rushed through everything just like all the other people there.  I was glad she was here with me.  I was glad she was mine.
