3. Waiting


I basically ran back to the flat and got some strange looks from random people walking on the streets but I could care less. I ran up the stairs, not wanting to wait for the elevator and bust opened the door.

“MAIREAD!” I screamed not caring if I was disturbing anyone else on our floor.

“What?! You’re going to wake up the whole building. Calm down.” She said rushing over to me.

“You will never guess what just happened to me!” I said jumping up and down.

“What happened?” she said excited now jumping with me.

“Remember that blonde boy from the restaurant the other night? I saw him today at Starbucks!”

“Oh my god no way! Did you talk to him?”

“Yeah we had coffee together and talked for a little bit until he got a call from someone and had to leave. I also got his number!” I said pulling out my phone to show Mairead his contact.

“Are you going to text him?” she said grabbing my phone out of my hand.

“I don’t know should I? I mean I just saw him 10 minutes ago so don’t you think that would be to soon?”

“Yeah true. Maybe you should wait until he texts you first?”

“Yeah, I’m just going to wait.” I said with a sigh.

I could already tell waiting for this text was going to feel like a lifetime.


Since I didn’t have to work today I decided to clean my room since it was beginning to look a mess. There were clothes and boxes everywhere. One I put everything away and my room look presentable, I asked Mairead if she wanted to go shopping. She agreed and we both got ready real quick. Once I was satisfied with how I looked I walked out of my bathroom and met Mairead in the kitchen.

“Ready to go?” I said grabbing my purse and wallet.

“Yep. Let’s do this poo!” she said excited.

We walked on the sidewalks around town looking at all the little shops. We went into some little boutiques and looked at clothes and shoes, since we needed to catch up with the London style.

“Hey Cat, you should get this.” Mairead said laughing hysterically at her own joke.

She was holding up this puke green turtle neck. Just the sight of it made me cringe.

“Haha very funny.” I said sarcastically.

“I bet Niall would like it.” She said laughing again.

“Niall would like what?” I heard a voice say.

My eyes widened and I completely froze. Of course the only time we decide to joke about the fact that I had somewhat of a crush on this kid someone hears. Mairead’s jaw was on the floor and her body was frozen too. I could feel my face turning bright red, and the last thing I wanted to do was turn around and see who was talking to us but I already had a feeling I knew who it was. And by the look on Mairead’s face, I could tell what I was thinking was probably right. I took a deep breath and turned around slowly spinning on the balls of my feet.

“Hey Niall.. uh, how’s it going..?” I said nervously.

“Oh nothing, just shopping with the boys.” He said with a cheeky smile.

I could tell he was finding this whole situation very amusing.

“The boys?” I said confused.

“Oh yeah, my friends Harry, Liam, Louis, and Zayn.” He said pointing over to the 4 boys who were taking bras and putting them over their shirts.

“Oh yeah. They seem very.. mature.” I said laughing at my own joke.

“I guess you could say that.” Niall said now laughing too. “So what brings you here?”

“Oh, uh, me and Mairead were just shopping for some new clothes.” I said pointing to Mairead.

“Hey, I’m Mairead” she said waving. “I’ve heard so much about you!” She said elbowing me and laughing.

I could feel my face turning red again. At this point I probably resembled Elmo from Sesame Street. This could not get anymore awkward.

“Oh really?” Niall said raising his eyebrows and nodding his head. He seemed very interested.

“I just told her I met you today at Starbucks.” I said defensively.

Mairead was now looking at clothes again so I was left alone with Niall. Great.

“It’s okay. I know I’m irresistible.” He said standing up straight trying to look big and muscular.

I couldn’t help it, I bursted out laughing.  “Oh is that true?” I said

“Yes it is.” He said trying to flex his muscles.

I laughed at him again. This kid was funny and had a great sense of humor. And the best part was, he didn’t think I was a freak for talking about him earlier with Mairead. One of Niall’s friends then started walking over to us.

“So Niall, when you said you were going to the bathroom you really meant that you were coming over here to hit on these girls!” the one with the striped shirt said while putting his arm around Niall and pulling him closer. “Well played mate.”

“For your information Louis, I already know her. I met her at Starbucks this morning.” Niall said defensively.

“Of course you did.” Louis said nodding his head and laughing. “I’m sorry. I haven’t introduced myself.” Louis said looking at me. “I’m Louis.”

“Hi, I’m Catherine, but you can call me Cat.” I said shaking Louis’s hand.

“Pleasure to meet you.” Louis said with a cheeky grin.

The three other boys started making there way over toward us now.

“So you two decided to ditch us to come over here and harass some poor innocent girl?” The one with the curly hair said.

“I can never get a break with you guys.” Niall said starting to get embarrassed by what his friends were saying.

“Oh quiet, you love us.” The one with the maroon Brit shirt said. “Hi, I’m Liam.” He said waving.

“I’m Harry.” The curly haired one said.

“Hi, I’m Zayn.” The quieter one in the back said.

“Hi, I’m Catherine. But you can call me Cat.” I said smiling and waving back at them.

“Damn Cathy, I leave you here for 5 minutes and you make all these new friends!” Mairead said now standing next to me.

“This is Mairead.” I said introducing her to the boys. “Mairead, this is Louis, Harry, Liam and Zayn.”

The boys all waved and said hi to her.

“So what are you girls doing tonight?” Harry said.

“Nothing.” Mairead and I both said.

“Great!” Harry said excitedly “So would you two be willing to hang out with us tonight?” He asked.

“Yeah do you guys want to do something with us tonight?” Niall said agreeing with Harry.

“Yeah sounds fun.” I said. “What are we gonna do?”

“We could go see a movie or something?” Zayn suggested.

“Yeah!” Everyone said agreeing with him.

“Okay so we’ll all get some dinner and go see a movie.” Louis said.

“Me and Mairead have no idea where anything is though.” I said. Mairead shook her head agreeing with me.

“We’ll pick you up then at 8 then.” Niall said. “Just give me your address.”

“Ok.” I said

I wrote down on a piece of paper the address of our flat and gave it to Niall.

“Ok so we’ll see you later then.” Liam said.

“Yeah. See you at 8 then!” I said.

We said our goodbyes and Mairead and I bought the clothes we had found in the shop. We then hurried home and started getting ready since it was already 6.

“I can’t believe we are going to dinner with five of the most gorgeous boys I’ve ever seen!” Mairead said all exited.

“I know!” I said just as excited. “ I could tell you fancied Zayn.” I said nudging Mairead.

“Was it that obvious?!” She said kind of embarrassed.

“Only to me. Don’t worry he couldn’t keep his eyes off of you!” I said

We both got back to getting ready and doing our hair and makeup. I was so excited for tonight and I could tell Mairead was too. I could already tell tonight was going to be a memorable night.
