Niall’s POV: We had just gotten to the hotel room when Maria called me. I got a bit excited, I would get to talk to her. When I picked up I heard music. It was really pretty and vaguely familiar. But I put it out of my head “Hi love” I waited, but she didn’t respond. “Maria?” All of a sudden the music got louder. I must be on speaker. I really listened to it, and figured out it was Ed’s music. The A Team to be exact. I listened more closely to the singer. It definitely wasn’t Ed…it was Maria!! She was amazing! Her voice is even more angelic that when she was talking. And she played piano like a pro. When she finished I started clapping she finally started talking.

            “I’m sorry Niall, I didn’t mean to call you.” “I know” I said. “I kind of figured when you didn’t talk back when I said hello, and that you were playing the piano and singing like no one was listening” “Crap you heard that??” of course I heard it, she was on speaker. “Of course, you’re really good” “Well I’ve been playing piano for years now. I’m sorry you had to hear me sing though.”

            She was sorry? Why? She had the prettiest voice I have ever heard. “Why, Love?” “I have a really bad voice, I try to cover it up with my piano.” WHAT??? a bad voice? “Not at all! You have a great voice. At first I thought I was listening to a recording with voice editing. I’m not joking. Wherever you heard that you have a bad voice is obviously a tone deaf place.” “You’re just saying that to be nice. Don’t lie to me.” She thought I was lying to her. How do I convince her she’s good? Then it hit me! “Hey Maria are you doing anything tonight? I was wondering if you wanted to meet up and hang out?”

Maria’s POV: “I was wondering if you wanted to meet up and hang out.” I was actually planning on going camping in my field tonight. I always go the first night after my parents leave to pay respect to Michael. It was a tradition I started doing when he died. My parents made it impossible to pay him any respect at home, so I go to our special place to do it. “Sorry Niall,” I say into the phone, “I’m actually going camping tonight.” “Camping? Where?” he sounded confused. Not surprising, though. There aren’t many places to actually ‘camp’ in L.A. “The field I first met you in.” I respond kind of sheepishly. “You’re welcome to join me if you really want to.” Why did I do that?? I never let anyone join me on my trips. Well, I guess I can always try something new. “I’d love to!” “Okay just bring your sleeping bag, pajamas, and clothes for tomorrow, I’ll pack everything else. Meet me at the field in 30 minutes” I hung up and got packed for my time to remember Michael.
