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?


12. Stuck

~Bethany's P.O.V.~ 

I watched Niall sink below the waves.  I looked around worriedly.  I took a couple of steps back and braced myself.  I took a deep breath and counted to three.  I ran towards the edge of the roof, not giving myself enough time to think it through.  I felt the wind as I dove into the water below.  The impact stung.  I fought my way back up to the surface.

"Niall!" I screamed when I had emerged.  "Niall!" I looked around me. 

"Bethany!" I heard him scream. "Over here! Hold on, I'm coming!" 

I turned around and saw Niall swimming towards me.  I swam his way and and grabbed him tightly, both of us kicking to keep us afloat.  

"What are we going to do?" I asked, panic rising inside of me.  Niall chuckled a bit.  "This isn't funny!  We're stranded in the ocean, Niall!"

"You still haven't noticed, have you?  Bethany, the boat lurched because we were docking.  We're swimming right beside of an island."

I looked around and squinted my eyes.  It was dark now.  The sun had set, and it made everything impossible to see.  I looked a little harder, letting my eyes adjust to the darkness.  I could just make out the island to my left.  I looked behind Niall and saw the ship.  How had I missed it before?  

"Come on." Niall said, tugging my hand.  I swam beside him until we were close enough to the island to walk.  

"Niall," I said walking up the beach beside him. "how are we going to get back on the boat?  We don't have our tickets, and neither of us have our phones." 

He looked over at me, and then up to the boat.

"I don't know." He said.  "We'll figure out something."

"My mom is going to be worried sick.  What will she think?  She'll overreact and think I'm dead or something!"  I knew how Mom was.  She would think of the worst thing possible.

"It'll be fine, Bethany.  She'll just think you had a late night or something."

"What about in the morning when I'm not in bed?"

"She'll think you had an early start.  It'll make sense with the ship docked and everything."

Just then, I heard someone yell from the boat.  I looked up to see someone toss something to us.  It landed in the sand just up ahead.  Niall walked up to the object and picked it up.  

~Niall's P.O.V~

I studied the object in my hand.  It was my phone.  I felt it start to vibrate.  The caller ID said it was Liam.

"Hello?" I said answering the phone.

"Niall?" I heard Liam on the other side of the call.  "Are you okay?"

"Fine.  Just feel off the boat is all."

"I know.  I saw you fall!  What happened?"

"I'll explain later.  Right now, we need to get back on the ship."

"Mate, the won't be letting people off the ship until morning.  The won't even be setting up the dock or anything."

"So we're stuck out here?"  I saw Bethany's head whip around to look at me.

"I'm afraid so, mate."
