5. Seeing from a distance

~Bethany's P.O.V.~

I woke up early the next morning, getting out of bed before everyone else.  I quietly grabbed some clothes and went into the bathroom.  I put on a light blue T-shirt and a pair of jean shorts.  I put on my belt and walked over to the mirror.  After I brushed my teeth, I combed my hair and pulled it up into a ponytail.  I grabbed my PJ's and walked out the bathroom.

I left a note on my bed reminding Mom where I was.  When I got down to the lobby, I asked the man at the desk where the restaurant was at.  He told me the directions and went back to his paper work.  I followed the man's instructions and finally found my way.  I was greeted by the same boy I had met yesterday.  

"Good morning!" He said walking up to me.  He was already dressed and ready for his shift.

"Morning." I said with a smile.

 He handed me an apron and led me to the back of the restaurant.  I pulled the apron on and listened to him chattering away.  Turns out his name was Matthew.  His dad was the manager of the restaurant.  He explained everything and showed me where everything was at.  He told me to come with him when someone finally came in to eat breakfast.  After he waited on the customers, he asked me if I understood everything.  I nodded and followed him back to the front of the restaurant.  

I spent the rest of the morning waiting tables and pouring drinks.  As I was getting someone a glass of tea from the machine, Matthew walked up to me.

"You're doing great." He said standing beside me.  "I hate to ask you this, but would you like a job while you're here.  It'll only be in the mornings.  Everything will be the same."

"That would be okay." I said thinking it over. 

"Thank you so much!" Matthew smiled widely.  He took the glass from my hand and handed me a check. "Your shift is over for the day.  Thanks again.  See you tomorrow!" 

~Niall's P.O.V.~

After everyone was awake and ready, we went to find some breakfast.  After we got a recommendation on where to eat from someone in the lobby, we headed downstairs to find the restaurant.  A boy around our age seated us in a booth.  Liam and I sat on one side, and Harry, Louis, and Zayn sat on the other.  Halfway through our breakfast, Liam nudged me in the rib.

"What?" I said a little irritated. Liam nodded his head towards the front of the restaurant. 

"Isn't that your girl?" He asked.  I looked to where he had nodded.  Sure enough, there was Bethany.

"She's not my girl, but yeah that's her." I said looking down at my food.  She was talking to the boy who was waiting our table.  He had handed her a piece of paper.  It was probably his phone number.  Why hadn't I given her my phone number?

"You all right mate?" Liam whispered to me.  I smiled at him and nodded my head.  She was just a girl.  What did it matter anyways.  I would never see her again after this cruise was over.  I took another bite of my food and listened to Louis crack a corny joke.  

After breakfast, we all went to the TV room.  That's what we had started calling it.  Zayn had found it yesterday.  It was awesome.  It had about fifteen TVs and a game system for every TV.  When we walked in, there was only a boy in there.  He was in front a TV playing Xbox. I followed Harry to the other side of the room and plopped down in a beanbag chair.  Everyone grabbed a controller and started playing some game Louis had picked out. 

I turned around when I heard the boy groan loudly.  There she was again.  It was Bethany.  No wonder I couldn't get her off my mind.  I saw her everywhere.

~Bethany's P.O.V.~

After I was finished with my new job, I headed back up to the room.  Mom was already dressed and reading some magazine.  I assumed Dad was in the shower.  Mom asked if I would go find Mark so we could get something to eat together.  I nodded and headed back down to the deck. I already knew where he would be. 

I walked into the room with all the TVs, and sure enough he was there.  

"Mark." I said walking over to him.  "Mom said to come back up to the room.  We're going to get something to eat."

He groaned loudly.  "Can't I just stay down here?  I want to finish this game."

"No, now come on.  It won't kill you to spend a little bit of time with your family." 

He stood up quickly and shut the game system off.  Before I knew it, he had stormed out of the room.  I shook my head and looked around.  I saw Niall on the other side of the room.  I smiled and waved.  He smiled back.  I walked out of the room and onto the deck.  His smile was stuck in my brain.
