Finally, today was the day. I was leaving for London. It was a 13 hour flight. I was probably going to go stir crazy but it would be worth it. My flight was leaving at 10:15 in the morning, and then I would be landing at 11:30 at night my time and 4:30 in the morning Niall's time. I felt bad he would have to get up so early to get me, I told him I would take a taxi but he insisted he would get me. I was hoping he wouldn't have me take a taxi because I wanted to see him so bad. My mom and Mel drove to the airport. I had two big bags, Niall was going to kill me. Oh well! So I had the two big bags, and then my carry on full of things to keep me occupied. There was 2 books, markers and paper, headphones to put into my phone, which I finally got my screen fixed, and I had one of those things you put around your neck to sleep. I also had my ipad to watch movies on. I hope this goes by quick, but probably not so I came prepared. I also dressed comfortably. I had on yoga pants, Niall's hoodie, and sweater boots. I did my hair and make up that way before I landed I could touch it up before I see Niall.
We walked into the airport and went over to the United station to get my bags weighed and put through. It was going to be $100.00 because of how heavy they were, I was expecting that though. It was also worth it so I didn't have to bring them with me on the plane. My mom and Mel helped me upstairs to security, where I would have to say goodbye. We all hugged and it was bitter sweet, but I'll be back in 2 weeks. My mom even cried, what a whack job. Just kidding, I love her but it's only 2 weeks and I'm going to be in good hands! I think she was a little hesitant that I would be in another country, with a boy, alone basically, but I'm almost 19 so it was out of her hands. We said our last goodbyes and I got into line. I hated taking my shoes off, it felt so weird. And when I went through the body scan, I had metal pop up in my hair on the screen, it was from my extensions so I laughed a little bit because I actually got my hair searched. But finally I was through security and I went to go wait at my gate.
Finally my flight was called and I got in line to board. Let the 13 hours begin. I called Niall as soon as I got on so I could talk to him before we took off. I was nervous, I always get nervous flying, especially when I'm by myself. I hated being up in the sky not having control of what could happen. Hopefully his voice will be able to calm me down. It usually does.
"Hi baby! 13 more hours!"
"I know, I can't wait to see you. Nervous?"
"Yes, so much Niall!"
"It will be fine, just think of what's going to happen when you land."
"What's going to happen?"
"You'll see me!"
"It's fine, just relax, get some sleep, listen to music."
"I will. I even bought things to color with. I came prepared!"
"Oh wow, hahaha, you're adorable."
"So are you!"
"I know right?"
"Shut up." I said laughing. "But I have to go now they're closing the gate so the flight attendants will be making their announcements soon!"
"Ok, I'll be waiting for you! And don't forget to look out the window when you're getting close."
"I won't, and get some sleep!"
"I'm too anxious to sleep, counting down the seconds babe."
"Me too, I'll see ya soon! Kisses!"
"See you in a bit love! Bye!"
With that I hung up and tuned out the flight attendants. I was actually feeling a bit sleepy so I put my seat belt on and drifted off to sleep. Didn't last long though I woke up about 4 hours later and it was 2:30. I was hungry! So I waited for a flight attendant to pass by and pulled out my debit card and got a turkey sandwich and a bottle of water. It was actually pretty good, but it was also $10, plane food was so expensive! I also had plenty of money in my account, and I had plenty of cash. I would really like to take Niall out one night to thank him for inviting me and opening up his home. It was the least I could do, so hopefully he lets me. I would love to buy him and treat him to things more but I know this one time would be like pulling teeth. After eating I decided to watch a movie because I didn't like the one they were playing on the plane. It was that bird movie with Jack Black and Steve Martin, like Big Year or something. I decided to watch Julie&Julia, it was such a cute movie! When that was over it was 5:30. 7 hours to go still, I forced myself to sleep. But that only lasted 2 hours. I needed to kill 5 hours. I started to color and draw pictures of mine and Niall's name together, I ordered more food, I read one of my books, I slept, for another hour, I watched another movie, and then I listened to music. Finally there was an announcement that we would be landing in 20 minutes. FINALLY! I remember when I was counting down from 2 months and now I would be landing in 20 minutes and hopefully throwing myself in Niall's arms in 30 minutes. I kept my music on and just looked out the window for the remainder of my flight. The city was beautiful and it was dark here since it was only a little after 4 in the morning, so the lights made it even better, what a view! I got so carried away with trying to take everything in that the bumpy landing shocked me. I can't believe we were here and pulling into the airport now. SOOOO EXCITED! Finally we were connected to the airport, and we were allowed off. As soon as people started standing up I turned my phone on and called Niall!
"Are you here princess?!"
"YES YES YES!"
"Awesome, what gate are you coming out of?"
"Okay, I'll meet you over by the bag pick up for that gate!"
"Okay, I'll be running!"
"See you shortly love!"
I literally ran out of the plane, and asked how to get to the bags. I got there but didn't see Niall at first. I was really sad actually. He said he would be here. I took out my phone to call him when I felt two arms around me.
"Um please be Niall?"
"Yes babe it's me!"
I turned around so fast! "BABY!" and I hugged him so tight and we then we kissed. Holy shit how I've missed kissing him. And then it was like he read my mind.
"Wow, I've missed that."
"Me too, you have no idea Niall."
"I love when you say my name. Your accent is so cute."
"No your is! I just love to hear you talk!"
"Hahah you're too funny, lets get your bags, and go home."
"That sounds really good right now. I bet you're exhausted!"
"I am, but I bet you are too. I have a nice big comfy bed that we can just collapse on!"
"Perfect, lets go!"
"Cute sweatshirt by the way!" Niall said laughing.
"Oh thanks, I got it from a cute guy." I said looking up at him and smiling.
"Which bag is yours?"
"Actually I have 2 big purple suitcases." I said kind of quietly. I actually felt embarrassed.
"That doesn't surprise me. Lets get them and get out of here."
We grabbed my bags, and went to his car. He put them in the trunk and we were on our way. I'm so happy, couldn't stop smiling. Niall reached over and grabbed my hand and pulled it up and kissed it.
"I'm so happy you're finally here it doesn't feel real."
"I know." I replied quietly.
"We're almost there, don't fall asleep yet."
"I won't!" I still said kind of quiet.
We arrived at his flat a couple minutes later. Niall actually brought up both of my bags and I just had my carry on. He was so sweet. We walked in and I was too tired to even explore right now. When he shut the door I literally leaned against it and slide down.
"Babe where is your room?" I asked very tiredly with my eyes closed.
"Help me?" I said holding out my arms with my eyes closed. Soon I was being carried and he took my boots off and put me in bed. "You're the best."
"Shh, go to sleep." And that was the last thing I heard before Niall kissed the top of my head and climbed in next to me. This felt so right, and we fell asleep together.
