The first couple of weeks went by pretty fast. I was very busy with work and school. It was nearing the end of second semester.I had finals coming up, papers to write, and projects to complete. But what was I going to do when my time wasn't as occupied? I talked to Niall every day and the rest of the boys at least 3 times a week through texting and a couple calls here and there. I've only gotten to skype with Niall once and it didn't last long. He's also very busy obviously. They are leaving Australia tonight and then they're going to Scotland, Ireland, then back to England to finish their tour. 5 more weeks and I'll get to see Niall again. He got me a plane ticket to come visit him in London. I'll be there for 2 weeks, then he's coming back to America with me for 2 weeks. I'm so excited. I've been picking up all the shifts I can at work until then because while we're together because I already took the whole 4 weeks off. I planned on being like glued together.
Two more weeks went by and I was done with school. My first year of college complete and it was almost June, 3 more weeks now until I see Niall. I really need to find some things to do with my time. Me and Melanie decided to go on a road trip! We headed down to Long Island. Most of my dad's side of the family lived down there so one of aunt's said we could stay at her beach house. We would just have to buy our own food and stuff. We were only going to be there for 3 days because I happened to have 3 days in a row off from work. I was excited to go to the beach, maybe the city one day, and just relax out in the sun.
The first day we got there we went to house to get unpacked. It was about 10 when we got there because we left at like 6:30 to try and beat traffic. We only hit a little bit so we were really lucky. As soon as we were done getting unpacked we changed and headed straight to the beach. A real beach too, not just those lake ones upstate. Melanie was wearing a hot pink bikini with large black polka dots and my bikini was just black and strapless. I don't really see the point in buying like fancy bikinis if they're just going to get all wet anyway. We had so much fun at the beach though! We went swimming, body surfing, tanning, had ice cream, frozen lemonade. It was a really good day. At about 5 we headed back to the house to get changed. We were going to go out to dinner and the spend the night on the boardwalk. Melanie changed into a floral print dress that was tight at the waist and then flowed out, and she also put in espadrilles with white lace. I wore the white sun dress Niall bought me with white and silver wedges. We looked cute! We went to a restaurant right on the board walk and it was a seafood place, we both got lazy man's lobster. We actually probably could of shared one, but oh well it was delicious. Then we walked around, played some games, and got shirts made that said best friends and summer 2012! We went back to the house around 11 because we wanted to get up in the morning and go to the city and go shopping.
The next morning we got up around 8 and headed out about 10 and reached the city at almost 12. We got real pizza for lunch and shopped on the streets buying knock off things, and also real things that were in the back rooms of some stores. I had to be careful about spending my money because I wanted to save it for the time I was with Niall. I know he would want to buy me everything but I also wanted to show him I could be independent. So, I didn't buy too much but I helped Melanie pick out a bunch of things that I will be borrowing, so it was a win win. We also went to dinner while we were there, it was a Chinese place and was super delicious. After dinner we went back to the car so we could put our things in it and get changed. We wanted to go to a club so we brought clothes to change into. I wore a small sparkly black dress with red heels, and Mel wore a cheetah print dress with hot pink heels. The club was so much fun, a couple guys tried buying us drinks but we sent them back. Like obviously we've partied before and drank, but we had to drive back to the house and we weren't taking any chances. We left around 2 in the morning and got back at almost 3:30.
On our last day there we slept in to 1 in the afternoon. We went to a little store down the road to get some junk food and things for dinner. We got ice cream, chips, pop tarts, and things to make chicken parm with. We were going to spend our last day relaxing with each other. Throughout the day we ate, cooked, laughed and enjoyed each others time. Luckily my aunt's television had netflix on it, and there was some wine and vodka in the back of the fridge. Hopefully she won't mind or tell my dad. She's pretty cool and we're close so I wasn't worried. We had a couple glasses and shots each, and it's known that you get like a different kind of fucked up from wine than beer or liquor. It was safe to say by the time we were done with dinner we were a little more than tipsy. I was feeling lonely so I called Niall!
"Hey love, how are you?"
"Gooooooood baby I miss you so so so much!" I slurred.
"Are you drunk?"
"Me? Never?" I started laughing and so did Mel.
"What are you doing?"
"Me and Mel just had a glass of some fine wine, that rhymed!"
"I think you had a little more than a glass. You should go to bed you have to drive home in the morning."
"No, I just care."
"No need to get nasty, I'm just worried. I'm not there to look out for you."
"We're home, stop!"
"No, you stop. No more drinking tonight, ok?"
"Mmmmmm probably not babe."
"Why don't you love meeeee?"
"Niall, I'm like obviously in like love with you!"
"No you're not. You're drunk and you don't know what you're saying. Babe please get some rest, I'll call you in the morning. I really have to go I'm super busy here."
"I'm going to prove it to you!" And before he responded I hung up. God, I'm crazy when I'm drunk.
I ran off to the bathroom with my wine glass in hand. And I did told Niall I was going to prove to him I loved him. I sent him a naked picture with the caption 'I bet you wish you got this before you left ;) ;*' He called me right back!
"What are you doing?"
"What didn't you like it?"
"Of course I did, but what if you sent it to the wrong person or I didn't have my phone at the time and someone else saw. Not cool love."
I started crying. "I thought it would make you love me."
"That wouldn't make me love you, you're drunk go to bed, we'll talk tomorrow."
I hung up before I said goodbye, FUCK HIM! Mel and I finished the bottle before passing out.
The next morning waking up fucking sucked. Obviously hung over. I checked my phone and it was already noon, we were running so behind and I don't think we packed last night. Not sure what we really did last night that's kind of blurry. I checked my phone and I had two missed calls from Niall. And a voice mail. I listened to the voice mail. "I hope when you get this you're acting like yourself, I deleted the picture and I hope you did the same thing. Call me when you wake up." What was he talking about? I went through my contacts and clicked his name to call him.
"How are you feeling?"
"I'm not sick, just hung over I guess."
"That's what I thought. You were really drunk last night."
"How would you know?"
"You called me."
"Yeah, opps. You sounded like a mess. Do you remember anything?"
"I know I had drinks last night here with Mel."
"So you don't remember the picture?"
"Obviously not Niall, what are you talking about?" I said impatiently.
"Lisamarie, you sent me a naked picture of yourself last night and told me you were in love with me."
"Fuck, I'm actually the most stupid person in the world. I'm so so so dumb, and I'm so so so sorry. I was a mess, I didn't know, this is so embarrassing." I can't believe I did that.
"Babe, you're just lucky no one else saw."
"Cheer up, it's over and done with. I'm not really mad, you just need to be more careful."
"It was a hot picture though babe."
"NIALL!" I said laughing.
"Well it was!" He was laughing too.
"BLAAAH! Ugh I don't feel good, my head is killing me and I'm going to go overdose on advil."
"Well don't do that please! Then Id have to kill myself." He said sarcastically.
"Calm down Romeo, I'm only going to take 3."
"Much more reasonably. Now take a shower, eat something, and drink coffee and hit the road so you can get some sleep before work tomorrow."
"Ha Ha! Very funny, just trying to help."
"I know babe, I appreciate it. So I gotta go then because I doubt we packed either."
"Alright, I'll let ya go then. Please text or call me when you get home."
"Will do, bye!"
O hung up and attempted at waking up Mel. Took about a half an hour. We packed, showered, ate, cleaned up, got some coffee, then hit the road. We got home in about 4 hours at 8, and I wanted to pass out, but I sent Niall a quick text saying I was home and he said we would talk tomorrow, I smiled and crashed onto my bed and drifted off to sleep. 2 weeks and 4 days now.
