Never Forget

Katherine Leighton. A normal girl, unless you consider the fact that she's an international superstar. Katherine of all people knows that a celebrity status doesn't fix problems. It doesn't erase the fact that Maria is dead. Or that Maria knew. A collaboration with One Direction is a major boost in her career, but falling in love could be what brings it to shambles. Maria's death starts to look less like a death, and more like a curse, and Katherine will have to give up everything to be able to survive...

8. Crazy Beautiful Life

 

Morning arrives and I was sleeping when I hear a voice singing to me. “It’s time to wake up, it’s time to get out, we drove two miles for breakfast so come on and get it...” A pause, then really loud singing and someone jumping on the bed. “IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP! IT’S TIME TO WAKEY WAKEY!” I groan and punch at the air, and here an “ouch.” I blink and see Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry and Zayn all staring at me. Niall dismounts off the bed, and Zayn unstraps the guitar, grinning.

 

“Good morning to you too,” I grumble. They cheer.

"Sooooo, hows Katie feeling today?" Liam asks. I shrug.

 

"It depends, what's for breakfast?" I sniff the air hopefully.

 

"Pancakes and bacon," Niall says as he stretches out on a chair. A whiff of hot, delicious breakfast hits my nose. Mmmm, that smells really good.

 

"Not for this young lady," a voice says. I whip my head around to face my nurse. She smiles at me with her kind blue eyes twinkling, rosy cheeks beaming, and mouth upturned in an overly happy way.

 

"Anne!" I cry out in protest.

 

"I brought you nice healthy toast from our hospital cafeteria, say thanks!" she replies, waddling over with her feet shoved into 4 inch heels.

 

"PLEAAAASSSSEEEE can I have pancakes from my boys over here?" I plead, motioning to Louis. Louis smiles and jumps up and down.

 

“She can have carrots with me later!” he suggests. I roll my eyes. That guy LOVES his carrots.

 

She looks sternly at me and replies,"have the toast too." I wave at her and dig into my first real food in two weeks. 

 

"So, I heard your friend is coming?" Niall asks, wiggling his eyebrows. 

 

"Yeah, her name is Cassidy," I respond, shrugging my shoulders nonchalantly.

 

“Is she hot?" Niall questions, raising his brows as far as they would go. I roll my eyes.

 

"You could say so. Green eyes, straight reddish hair, looks exactly like that girl... Cassidy!" I shout, seeing my friend arrive. She looks amazing as usual, in a floral strapless dress, mini boots, and a leather jacket for a bit of “edge” as she calls it.

 

"Heeeeyyyyy girl!" She runs forward and hugs me. I grimace as she presses a tender spot.

 

"Oof!" I wheeze. She looks sadly at me.

 

"Sorry! Forgot you were a disabled celeb!" she cries out, hugging me gently this time.

 

"Temporarily!" I remind her.

 

"Sooo, who are these hotties over here?" she says, ignoring my last comment and stepping towards Niall.

 

"Hey, watch it, one of those hotties is my boyfriend!" I protest.

 

"And don't you forget it!" Zayn proclaims as he sits on the bed next to me. He kisses me lightly, which is his way of saying ‘back off, she’s mine and I’m her’s.’

 

"I'm Niall,” Niall decalares, sticking out his hand. Cassidy smiles and holds his hand.

 

"I know, I've heard a lot about the 'mischievous prankster blonde’.” Cassidy winks.

 

Niall blushes. I decide to give him a little of his own medicine. Zayn must have been thinking the same thing because we both start making kissy noises at them.

 

Niall blushes harder and Cassidy looks at me."You know me well enough to know what I'm gonna do next, Kath." and she kisses Niall. Wow, I must've forgotten about Cassidy and her challenges. 

 

"Did you mean that?" Niall asks, shaking his head in bewilderment. I could practically read his mind: where did THIS girl come from?

 

"I've been dreaming about kissing you since 2010 and you were on the X Factor!" she replies and kisses him again. Wow, wasn't this sappy.

 

"Uh, Cassie?" I say, gagging.

 

"Yeah?" she looks confused, like ‘what am I doing wrong?’

 

"I'm eating breakfast. Could you lower the PDA level a notch?" I plead.

 

"So? Haven’t you and Zayn done worse than this?" Um, that was unexpected. Come to think of it, we hadn’t discussed anything about going farther than kisses.

 

"It’s kind of weird to see my best friend kissing my other friend character," I admit, trying to keep my mind off my relationship.

 

"Friend character?" Niall questions.  I roll my eyes.

 

“Must you contradict everything I say?” I ask him. He simply shrugs. Zayn’s phone beeps, and everyone peeks to look except for Cassidy and Niall. Zayn groans.

 

“Sorry, Katharine, but Gail the Snail,” he pauses while Liam and Niall crack up. “Wants us to meet her for lunch at this French restaurant…erm, is it ‘Le Jardin de Les Fleures Café’?” he says, trying to pronounce it. I laugh out loud.

 

“You know that means ‘The Garden of Flowers Café, right?” Cassidy asks, and I nod in unison. We’d taken French together since 6th grade. Zayn blushes and clears his throat.

 

“Of course, it’s a manly flower garden,” proclaims Harry. The guys nod in agreement, and Niall flexes his muscles to set the mood. Cassidy and I nod sarcastically.

 

“Yeah, sure guys,” I say. Zayn leaps off the bed and is staring at his phone.

 

“Did I mention she wants to see us in five minutes, stat?” he asks, sounding apprehensive. Niall slides Cassidy off his lap.

 

“Sorry, m’lady, duty calls,” he says, and with a mock tip of his imaginary hat, he exits with the guys. We both sigh unanimously, already missing the guys.
