Subtle Signals

Jillian was once just a One Direction fan. Then she became a fangirl.
Jillian's family is not doing very well financially, but they somehow scraped the money together to get her the best birthday present ever, and it led to something that is simply irreplaceable.

7. Everything Happened So Fast... part II

I had a blast at the concert.  I sang along to each and every song, and Harry did a few of his infamous lyric changes.  Niall even did his Scottish accent for us!  He's too adorable.  Just, no.  It was all too much.  I couldn't believe what was happening.

After the concert, I went over to the stage door again, only to find Liam walking out.  

"Hello, beautiful." he cooed, and I blushed instantly.  He smiled contently and led me through the door my my wrist.

"What are you doing, Liam?  I don't have a backstage pass..."

"You're with me.  I'm your pass.  Now come on!" he said to me, taking me over to a table and grabbing two water bottles and a lanyard with a pass in it.  He put it over my head and handed me the bottle, then motioned for me to follow him until we reached a red velvet curtain.

He knocked on the wall next to it and said, "It's Liam.  I have a surprise for you guys..."  He opened the curtains and on a red leather couch sat the rest of the band.  They all looked shocked and Niall gasped, then shot a look at Liam as if to say, 'why did you bring her here?'

"Hello, love." said Harry, winking at me and patting the couch cushion next to him.  I sat down and he put his arm across the back of the couch.  "What's your name, miss?"

"Jillian." I said.

"Hello, Jillian.  You have a very pretty name, love.  It's nice to meet you."  Zayn said to me, holding out his hand.  I shook it gently.  He could tell I was nervous.

"Is something wrong?" asked Louis, and I simply shook my head and smiled.

"I'm okay, but thanks for asking, Louis." 

"Well, it's a pleasure to meet you Jillian." he said, holding out his hand.

"Oh please, Lou.  The pleasure's all mine!"

I turned to Niall, and he looked really nervous.  Liam sat on the arm of the sofa next to me and whispered in my ear, "He really likes you, Jill.  He would not stop talking about you while we were changing, how beautiful you were.  I reckon he's just a bit shy."

"Niall?  You seem a little... too quiet.  Are you okay?" asked Louis, whom he was sitting next to.


-Niall's POV-

'Why did Liam have to bring her backstage?'  I was sweating like crazy, and my heart was beating faster than it ever had before.  I had butterflies in my stomach all through the concert knowing at she was watching.  She was just so beautiful.  Her eyes were green with hints of blue and gray.  Her voice was so motherly and sweet, innocent in fact.  She was perfect.  I wanted to tell her, but I had no idea how.  I couldn't talk to her.  I didn't know why, but I was really nervous.

"Niall?  You seem a little... to quiet.  Are you okay?" Lou asked me, but I didn't really think I could respond.

"My throat just hurts, mate."  I said softly, and Jillian came over next to me and I got butterflies again.

"Want me to get you some water, Nialler?" she asked me, and I nodded.  I couldn't bring myself to speak.

She came back a minute or two later with a chilled water bottle and opened it.  She handed it to me and sat on the arm next to me, beginning to rub my back a bit.  I got chills.  

"Better?" she asked, and I looked up at her and smiled, nodding my head again.

"Thank you" I managed to say, and she smiled and winked at me, continuing to rub my back.

My phone vibrated.  It was Harry.

'you like her, don't you?'

'yeah, a lot...'

'well I do too. she seems really sweet.'

'she is, Liam's told me.  get back in the conversation, would ya mate? bye.'


-Zayn's POV-

'God, she's gorgeous.  She probably doesn't like me though- look at how she's helping Niall.  AWE! Thats so sweet she's rubbing his back!  NO. I LIKE HER.'

"So, Jillian, are you from around here?" I asked her, curious to know what she was like.

"Yeah, I'm about an hour south of here."

"Oh cool! We're in LA for another day, and we leave tomorrow night."

"I wouldn't want to bother yo-"

"Oh, you're not a bother at all!" Liam chimed in, cutting her off.

"But you guys have a performance..."

"That's nothing to worry about."

We talked for quite a while after that, and I only fell deeper in love with this girl with every detail she told us about her life.  Until she got to her home life.

"I tend to fight with my dad a lot.  He begins yelling at me, and I try to reason with him but he never lets me speak up."  she sighed and I saw a tear forming in her eye.  "He's a high school teacher, and he's really strict sometimes.  Honestly, I'm a bit afraid of him."  She let a tear roll down her cheek.  She got up from the couch and walked over to the corner.
