We didn't wake up until around 11. This was normal for me when I go to bed at like 10 at night but this was really sleeping in for Melanie. I was exhausted but Melanie seemed fine. She decided she would go in the shower first so I could sleep a little more, but before I did I checked my phone. I had 3 messages from Niall. The first one said 'hope you had a good time i did :)' the second one said 'cant stop thinking bout u xxx' and the third one said 'wake up sleepyhead and text me ur address what time should i get u?' That one was sent a couple minutes ago. I texted him back my address and then I sent another message saying 'can't wait to see you! :)' I hope that wasn't too forward. Just telling the truth! He texted me back like within seconds saying 'i cant wait either, what time is good for u' I texted back saying 'how does 2 sound?' I thought that would give me enough time to get ready and I didn't want to say any earlier to sound so eager, but then his next text made me laugh '2?! i have to wait that long to see u? fine lol ur worth the wait. see ya @ 2 ;) xx' I just smiled and locked my phone and decided to just get up and make some coffee.
I went downstairs and told my mom that I was going over Melanie's today and I might be spending the night. I didn't want to tell her about Niall yet because I don't really want to get my hopes up. So I'll have to make sure I tell Melanie the little plan. And thank god my mom leaves for work at 12 or there would be some serious questions. She asked me about the concert and the meet and greet and everything and why we got home so late. I told her that everything was just perfect and we got chosen to hang out even more after the meet and greet. She didn't really push because she like knows my obsession with One Direction so she was actually really happy that I got to spend so much time with them.
It was about 11:30 when Melanie got out of the shower. That may seem kinda long, but doesn't even compare to a Lisamarie shower. Sometimes I can take close to an hour or sometimes more. When I heard her come out of the bathroom I hugged my mom goodbye since I won't see her before she leaves for work and I don't know if I'll be back tonight. I ran upstairs and told Melanie exactly what I told my mom. Then soon I hopped in the shower and I actually only took like 40ish minutes. But I really wanted to go to the mall. I put my wet hair into a braid and just through on a tank top, yoga pants, and some Nikes and when I opened my door there was a big box on my door step. There was also a card attached to the box. It said 'To: Lisamarie Love: Niall p.s. hope this isn't too forward but I thought you would look beautiful in this xx' I was very confused. So I yelled to Mel to come over and I brought the box into my living room.
"Open the box Leese!"
"Okay okay give me a second!" I just kept re reading the card over and over again. Also I really hoped that the box was left after my mom left. But she hasn't called or texted so I assume it was.
"Oh my lanta!" My eyes grew wide and a huge smile was plastered against my face. Inside the box was the cutest little sun dress. It was white and lacy and strapless. And just absolutely adorable.
"That's so cute! I can't believe Niall is already buying you gifts!"
"I know, da eff?! I love it, he's so sweet. He also sent me cute little texts last night."
"Awe someone was bit by the love bug!"
"Meep! I guess!" I just couldn't stop smiling.
The dress was honestly perfect and I knew exactly what shoes I was going to wear too, some brown wedges with white lace I tie up my legs a little bit. I would make my hair wavy and of course put in my extensions and put on my eye lashes. I would tone down the eyeshadow though, just a light gold. And wear diamond studs. I think I looked pretty cute for an afternoon date. I looked at my phone and I had two texts from Niall. The first one said 'hope you got my gift x' and the second one said 'on my way babe x' That was sent 15 minutes ago. OMG I really need to check my phone more. Then I heard a knock at my door. Eff, I still needed to brush my teeth and put lotion on. I yelled to Melanie to answer the door. So she did and I heard her say hello and all of that and told Niall I would be down in a minute. I was rushing so much I'm surprised I didn't fall on my face...again. I walked down the stairs and there he was. The cute Irish boy known as Niall waiting to take me, Lisamarie, on a date.
"You look beautiful!" He said while holding his hand out as I came down the last couple of steps.
"Thank you, you don't look too bad yourself!" I said and winked. Then we hugged and he kissed my cheek and then he gave me a white rose. I blushed, he was just too good to be true!
"You two have a good time now, but not that good of a time" Melanie said while laughing. I just rolled my eyes and hugged her goodbye and then we were off.
We got into the car and at first we didn't say anything. It was so awkward, and I loved it. I know I sound weird but it feels like a real first date. I started laughing and he gave me a weird look. So I kind of felt embarrassed.
"What's so funny?"
"You, me, us, this."
"What do you mean?"
"This is so awkward like it feels like a real first date and I kind of like it."
"Well I hope it feels like a real first date, and I also hope it's the first of many." He said while he grabbed my hand. This all just felt unreal. And I was loving every minute of it.
