2. Love at first sight
For the next few days all I did was sit in my room and reasearch One Direction, mostly Niall. I had been texting my best friends Casey and Lainey about them ever since I saw that video. Their parents bought them each front row tickets and meet and greet passes for the Dallas concert wich was 3 weeks away. I begged my mom for tickets, I worked extra on my jobs, but I just couldn't get the money. I wish I could ask my dad, but he left me, my mom, and little Annabelle seven years ago.
We haven't heard from him since. I cried as the date got closer and closer, knowing this might be my only chance to see the boys, kills me. There was a week left until the concert, and I still didn't have the money. I looked on the website, and all the tickets where sold out. I walked to my bed and plopped down. I cried and cried and didn't even notice that Annabelle had slipped in my room. "Sissy, are you ok?" her little voice said quietly. "Yes Annabelle, I'm fine." I replied. She pulled a yellow envelop out from behind her back, "This is for you." I took the envelop from her little hands and opened it.
"Oh Annabelle!" I squealed. Out fell a ticket and pass. "Front row tickets and a meet and greet pass?! Annabelle, how in the world did you get these!!" I turned to her with tears streaming down my face. "Read the note!" she said excitedly. I picked up the slip of paper and it said, "Dear Julia, I know I haven't been a part of your life for a long time. Annabelle has been writing me letters about how things are around the house. She told me about how you are into One Direction. So I decided to buy these for you. I hope that Niall sees how beautiful you really are. Love, Dad." I was in shock, but happy at the same time. I lsat up and gave Annabelle a huge bear hug. "Thank you Annabelle! Thank you!" I cried. She pulled away from me and said, "I think you should go call Casey and Lainey!" I kissed her forehead and ran downstairs to share my amazayn news with my best friends.
