Surprise at the Soccer Fields

Alexis is a soccer player who loves One Direction. Who is the new coach everyone is talking about? What happens when she becomes the new coach's assistant? Will there be romance?


2. The New Coach

Niall Horan! It was Niall Horan! I was a huge directioner and Niall's my favorite! I knew that he was visiting family in England or wherever, I just didn't realize that it was him! Then I realized I was still choking on my Gatorade. Oops.

"Are you okay, Lexi?" my mom asked with a concerned look on her face.
"Oh yeah, I'm fine. Just the wrong pipe," I explained. Then I spotted Nick's water bottle on the bleachers next to my dad. Perfect. "Can I go take this I Nick?" I asked.
"Sure," my dad said. I quickly got up and made my way around the field. As I was turning the corner around the field, Niall spotted me and waved to me. What a nice guy. I waved back, and I set the bottle down on the bench. "Hi, I'm Niall, the assistant coach," he said on his beautiful accent.

"Hey," I said. "This is my brother Nick's. I was just bringing it to him," I said, trying not to totally freak out.

"Ah, yeah, Nick's a machine," he said, chuckling lightly.

"Yeah he is," I agreed with him. "He's got the leg of a bear and is as tall as a giraffe, and he scares the smallest kids on the field. But he'd never hurt anyone," I said.

"That's how I was too. Until I suddenly became the shortest on the team," he joked. I laughed too.
"Do you want to sit down?" he asked, gesturing to the bench. I sat down next to him. "Do you play?" he asked, looking at my socks and my team t-shirt.

"Yeah, we just got done with practice," I said.

"Okay, cool," he said, appearing to think. "Listen, so the head coach is going on vacation for like 3 weeks, and he's kind of leavin me in charge of the team, and I can't do it by myself. Would you like to be my assistant coach? The assistant coach's assistant," he asked. Um, YES! I wanted to yell. But that would weird him out. But seriously, it's Niall Horan! My idol! I'm even pretty sure he doesn't even know that I'm a fan!

"Sure!" I said enthusiastically. Just then Nick scored a goal.

"Man, that kid's got skill," Niall said incredulously. "So you'll really be my assistant coach?" he asked.

"Of course," I said. "And he'll be excited to know thy he thinks one of his coaches thinks he's really good," I joked. "Even though Liam's his favorite in the band," I added, giggling. Niall laughed for about 2 minutes straight.

"So you know who I am," he said, laughing more.

"Well, of course I know who my idol is," I said quietly, while trying to hide my blush. He stopped laughing at once.

"Really?" he asked in a serious tone.

"Yeah. You're awesome," I said with a smile on my face.

"Thanks. That really means a lot," he said, giving me a quick hug.

"You're welcome," I said. After that we finished watching the game. Nick scored 2 more goals, and they one 8-0. As we were loading the car up, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around to see Niall's beautiful eyes. "Hey," I said.

"Hi," he said back. "What's up?" he asked.

"Just packing the car up. Nothing much. So where are you staying?" I asked.

"I'm staying with the family that Greg stayed with last summer when he was a foreign exchange student. Well actually, I'm staying in their house. The Sullivans."

"Wait, do they live on Johnson Street?" I asked.

"Yes," he said slowly," near the end."

I jumped up. "Hey, new neighbor!" I said. "We live right across the street! I remember meeting Greg!" I said.

"That's great!" he said. "We should hang out! And I'll be all alone, Since Andrew and Scarlet will be traveling, and Josh and Avery are at college already. But thy said I could bring some friends. My friends being Liam, Louis, Zayn. And Harry," he said. I froze. One Direction were going to be living across the street from me for the entire summer! I couldn't wait!
