13. Mairead's Birthday

Catherine’s POV

A few days had past since everyone had found out that Niall and I were together. I had to stop looking at my twitter since so many people were tweeting nasty things to me. I tried to not let any of it get to me but it did. I didn’t want to tell anyone though because I didn’t need Niall getting upset and I didn’t want him to start questioning our relationship just because of a few nasty things people were saying.

It was Mairead’s birthday today and we were all getting ready to go out for her birthday.  There was a carnival in town so we all thought it would be fun for all of us to go and Mairead, Paige and I couldn’t be more excited to go. It was now 6 and the boys were going to be showing up any minute to out flat. We decided to eat real quick at out flat and then go to the carnival at 7. Someone started knocking on the door, which was most likely the boys.

“I’ll get it.” Paige said walking out of the kitchen to the front door.

“You excited Mair?” I turned to look at Mairead sitting at the table in the kitchen.

“Yes! Oh my god Cat remember how much fun we used to have at carnivals back at home? This is going to be even more fun I can feel it.” She said getting all excited.

“Hey guys.” Louis, Niall, and Zayn said walking into the kitchen. “Happy birthday Mairead!” they all said going and giving her a hug.

“Hey guys.” I said waving to them. Niall walked over me and gave me a hug and kissed me.

“I missed you.” He said not letting me out of his grasp.

“You saw me yesterday.” I said laughing a little.

“I know, but I still missed you!” He said kissing my forehead. Chills ran down my whole body.

“We ordered pizza, I hope that’s okay.” Mairead said

“Yeah that’s fine.” Louis said.

We all decided to just sit around the table and talk until the pizza came. We all ate real quick and then left to go to the carnival. We all got in the car and Louis decided to drive, as usual.

“Who’s excited?” Niall said.

“I am!” I said almost jumping out of my seat. “Are you?”

“No, I hate carnivals” I just stared at hi with a blank expression as my jaw dropped. “I’m kidding!” He said putting his arm around me.”

A few minutes later we pulled up to the parking lot across the street from the carnival. We all got out, crossed the street and started walking around. There were a whole bunch of game booths and rides and food. There were kids and couples everywhere and no one was mobbing us. This night was going to be perfect.

We all went and bought some tickets so we could go on some rides. We all decided that we wanted to go on the ride that looked like a boat and went back and forth ( Niall and I sat in the last row on one side with Mairead and Zayn in front of us and Paige and Louis sat in the last row on the opposite side so we were facing each other.

“Guys this better not be scary I don’t like rides.” Zayn said

“Come on pretty boy, man up.” Mairead said elbowing him. Niall and I bursted out laughing.

The ride started and Zayn was fine until the ride started swinging back and forth more, getting higher each time. We were all screaming and having fun and making weird faces back and forth with Paige and Louis. Once that ride was over, and Zayn recovered from nearly having a heart attack, we went on a few more rides. After we went over to the game booths.

“Let’s do this one!” Mairead said pointing to the game where you had to throw the basketball into the net 3 times in a row.

“Looks easy enough. Lets do it.” I said walking over to it.

Mairead, Paige and I all stood next to each other, gave the guy running the booth our money and each got our 3 basketballs. We all started shooting and failed miserably. Paige and I only made one basket and Mairead made to. The other times we either completely missed or the ball would bounce off the rim. All 3 boys just stood behind us laughing and mocking our athletic skills.

“It’s not that funny guys!” Paige said turning around annoyed.

“I just wanted to win the turtle stuffed animal!” I said annoyed.

“Yeah, lets see you get 3 baskets in a row superstars.” Mairead said stepping away from the booth.

“Okay, step aside ladies and see how it’s done.” Louis said as he stepped up to the booth, handing the guy his money. Zayn and Niall followed him and paid to play the game too.

All 3 of them only made 2 baskets each. All 3 of us just stood there smiling since we were right.

“Not so easy is it?” Paige said.

“I meant to miss that last one.” Louis said.

“Okay.” I said sarcastically and started laughing.

Niall walked over to me, grabbed my hand and started pulling me behind him as he started walking away from the booth.

“Where are we going?” I said confused.

“I’m going to win you a turtle.” He said all determined. He was looked cute when he was frustrated.

“Niall it’s okay. I don’t need it.” I said

“You wanted a turtle so I’m winning you a turtle okay.”

“Okay.” I decided to not try and fight him on this one.

We stopped at this booth where there were 3 bottles stacked in a pyramid like shape and you had 3 turns to try and knock them all down. Sounds easy right? Wrong. The first try Niall only got 2 out of the 3 down. It was like they were glued to the table or something.

“Don’t worry I got this.” He said to me and the girl running the booth stacked up the bottles again.

The last 2 turns Niall had successfully knocked down all 3 bottles each time.

“Finally.” He said relieved.

“You get a medium prize.” The girl running the booth said. “What do you want?” she said pointing to the rows of prizes under the giant “Medium” sign.

“The turtle please.” He said with a giant smile on his face. The girl grabbed the turtle and handed it to Niall. “Here you go babe.” He said holding the turtle out to me.

“I love it! Thank you.” I said hugging him and giving him a kiss on the cheek.

We started walking back over to Mairead, Zayn, Louis and Paige when a few girls stopped up.

“Niall can we get a picture with you?” They asked.

“Sure” he said. “I’m sorry babe this will only be a minute.”

“No it’s fine.” I said. I felt kind of awkward since these girls probably knew who I was and hated me. But I didn’t care. I was happy right now. “Do you want me to take the picture for you?” I said asking the girl with the camera.

“Could you please?” She said handing me her camera.

I took a few pictures for them and handed the girl back her camera. She seemed so happy.

“Can we get a picture with you too?” She said.

“Me?” I said surprised.

“Yeah you. You’re Catherine right? I saw bunch of pictures of you on tumblr.” She said. I couldn’t believe someone wanted my picture.

One of the girls took the picture while me, Niall and the rest of the girls stood with each other and smiled.

“Thank you so much!” One of the girls said giving Niall and then me a hug. Before they walked away one of them came up to me and quietly said “By the way, I really hope you and Niall stay together. I like you.”

I just stood there and smiled like an idiot. I couldn’t believe these girls knew who I was and didn’t hate me. Maybe being Niall’s girlfriend wasn’t going to be as hard as I thought.
