The Unexpected

I'm Talia Brookes. I'm 18 and I live a harsh life. My dad left me and my mom when I was young, then I watched my mom die right beside me, when I was 11. I live alone, in an apartment in New York City. I work at WEEKENDS, a restaurant on the other side of the city. I also work with Charlie, he's kind of like my dad. One day Charlie and I get two new employees, Aimee and Andrea. They're rich, so they must be snotty and stuck-up. The worst part is they always talk about some stupid boy band, One Direction. I hate One Direction, even though I haven't heard a single lyric from any of their songs. One day while the three of us are working, 8 guys walk in. 2 of them come in our direction and the other 6 head for a booth near the window. That's the moment when everything was unexpected and our lives changed forever.


7. Chapter 7

~Talia's POV~


Holy freaking crap. Louis was kissing me. I thought he didn't like me? I like him a lot. I like Louis, for Louis. Not Louis from One Direction. I just hope he felt the same. Not just trying to be cheeky like Harry is and kiss me, making me think he likes me but then spits in my face and runs off. Now that, would be awful. 


He looked into my green eyes, and I looked into his ocean-blue eyes. Gosh they were so beautiful, a love eyes. Especially blue eyes. "Now do you think I don't like you?" He asked, cheekily. I nodded and kissed his nose. "But how come, you ignored me and acted like I didn't exist?" I asked, now frowning. 


"Well I liked you so much, and the kiss was amazing. I thought you didn't like me so I just left you alone. I wasn't ignoring you." I smiled and we walked back into the living room and I saw something that was horrifying. I wanted to shoot a squirrel or rip out my hair and feed it to a goat. It was Harry and Aimee. Kissing?!


They looked like they were swallowing each other. Oh my carrots. This was worse than kissing. This was insanity. Well, to be honest they were just sweet kissing. Not snogging, but still. My eyes practically fell out of my head and were probably hanging from my eye sockets, and when I looked at Louis, he was catching flies. 


Louis and I looked at each other, and both made that 'om-my-lord-are-they-doing-what-I-think-they're-are-doing?' face. We both tiptoed backwards, into my room not wanting to interrupt their 'moment'.


"Woah, that was a little disturbing." I said while sighing that we weren't having to watch Harry and Aimee anymore. I sat on my bed, playing with my fingers and not knowing what to say. I trusted Lou, so I could probably show him the pictures. "Lou?" I finally asked. I ruined the silence, so it wasn't that awkward now. "Ya?" I motioned for him to sit on the bed. He sat next to me smiling. I got off the bed and shoved my hands under it coming up with the paisley design box. I put it in front of him while sitting next to him Indian style. He looked confused. I better explain first. I thought.


"Lou,, you know how you've never seen my mother or father yet?" He nodded. So I decided to continue."Well, this is the reason you haven't. They............" I started crying. I sniffed and wiped my eyes. Lou rubbed circles in my back telling me to continue."My mom died Lou." I got out. He was about to say something but I cut him off. "My mom died of breast cancer, and my dad left me when I was 6, I would have gone to my other family members but they didn't want me in their lives. I was put into an orphanage and eventually Charlie adopted me. My dad is hopefully still alive so I'm searching for him, and I'm so worried about Charlie I can barley think." It felt good to get all the sadness out. I told Andy and Aimee, that was good, but getting it all out again felt like coming home from a long day of work and just doing nothing afterwards.


I continued crying and I put my head against Louis's chest. "Taila, I'm so sorry," He hugged me tight. I wish that this could last forever. Me in Louis's arms. We kissed, but I can't help but worry that he'll ask me out. I wanted to go out with him, I did. But I remember when I was 9. Mom told me that someday I would find the right guy. She would want him to meet my dad before he could officially   ask me out. Since I haven't found my dad yet..... I couldn't allow Lou to date me. I promised, and a promise is a promise. I shook the thought out of my head. I liked Lou, and I shouldn't be thinking about this. I got out of his arms and looked at the box. "You don't have to show me,, if you don't want to." Louis said. "No. I want to show you. I already told you so I may as well show you. You can't tell anyone though, I haven't even showed Andy or Aimee yet, and, I don't want them to worry about me too much. They already help me enough, so I'm only gonna show you." I pulled out the pictures and showed Louis.


I cried harder and harder, every photo I looked at. The more photos I looked at, the harder I cried. Louis wrapped me in his arms and kissed my hair. I wrapped my small and weak arms around him and sobbed in his chest. He began humming a beautiful song. Then he began singing softly in my ear.


Undecided, voice is numb.

Try to scream out my lungs, it makes this harder.

And the tears stream, down my face.

If we could only have this life, for one more day. 

If we could only turn back time.

You know I'll be, your life, your voice, your reason to be.

My love, my heart, is breathing for this.

Moment in time, I'll find the words to say.

Before you leave me today.


His voice was so angelic, I now realize that this is why Aimee and Andy love One Direction so much. Their voices were beautiful. I smiled, and gave him a sweet, small kiss on the lips.


~Aimee's POV~


Talia and Louis are taking forever to finish showering and getting dressed! I thought they were going to be done by the time I die. "Wanna play would you rather?" Andrea asked. I loved that game! My favorite part was how ridiculous the questions were.


"I do, I do!" I yelled. "Ok. Aimee, you start." I looked around for my first victim. Niall. "Niall, would you rather, eat Nando's out of a dumpster filled with Zayn's sweat, or would you rather eat a bird?" He didn't even think, he replied with, "eat Nando's out of a dumpster filled with Zayn's sweat." One word; NASTY. But hey, Nando's is Nando's. 


"Ok Liam, would you rather kiss a hobo, or slam your tongue in a car door?" Niall asked. That's a good idea. "Eww, neither." He said making a sour face. "You have to which would you rather do?!" Niall yelled. "Kiss a hobo." "Eww, why?" I asked. "Well, I like my tongue." He said. "Ya'll are nasty." I said shaking my head. 


We continued playing the game, and it started getting really funny. It's amazing the things these boys come up with. And guess what, Talia and Louis still aren't done!


"Well, I'm hungry. I'm going to Nando's." Niall said sitting up from his seat. "That doesn't surprise me." Liam said, making everyone giggle making Niall send Liam a death glare. "I guess I'll go, I'm starving." Zayn said following Niall as Liam and Andy followed Zayn following Niall. Not confusing.


"You going?" I asked. "Not unless you go." He said smirking, I ignored it playfully and sat on the couch and turned on the tv and he joined me. "What do you wanna watch?" I asked surfing the channels. There was nothing good on. All these 90's shows whih don't satisfy me one bit and there was also stupid barbie and dora shows. People these days have no real taste in television.


"Ooh Alan Carr Chatty Man that show is hilarious!" I said turning the program on. When it came on, Alan Carr was talking about gravy or something. Then he announced One Direction, and when they came into the room they waved at the fans in the audience and squished on the small couch together.


"Would you like some Hooch?" He asked. "Hooch?" Niall asked. "You like lemons?" They all chorused yeah's and I like lemons and Alan handed out a bottle to every one and began to speak once again.


They talked about the dirtiest fans, the new album, and other things like that. At the end of the show, they had a dance battle with Alan Carr and 4 other guys who looked like him but more in shape, and Jessie J was the judge and picked Alan so appearently Niall punched him which made me almost pee my pants; it's not everyday you see Niall Horan punch Alan Carr after getting their butts whooped in a dance battle judged by Jessie J. Funny stuff,.


"You guys look so funny!" I said laughing. "I guess, my hair has looked better." Harry said. "Your hair? It looks fine like always. Bushy and curly." I said. "Not really. My hair looks worse now." He said. "I personally think it looks better in real life." I said messing up his already-messy curls.


"Really?" "Yeah. I like messy hair besides, it's better when people aren't styling your hair and stuff." "If you like guys with messy hair, I take that you like me?" He asked. Oh this boy. "I'd be lying if I said no." I said making him and I laugh. He paused and looked at me making me blush.


"Your cute." He said sweetly. "Thanks. You too." I said blushing. He just kept on looking me over, talk about awkward. I didn't know if I should continue blushing, or get this crazyness over with. I opened my mouth to speak but I was interrupted. He was kissing me. My eyes widened. Then I got settled, and kissed him back. I was smiling on the inside like crazy. I heard something coming down the stairs, but I didn't care. Harry didn't either, apparently. So we just ignored it. Louis's eyes probably fell out of his head or Talia's jaw probably fell off her face.   


~Taila's POV~


Louis has been sweetly rocking me, back and forth. I don't know why but I felt like this was going all to fast, we had only met a day or two ago and it's like we were already in love. I don't want to break the whole dating thing down to him, it would rip him into pieces. I remember when mom was dying, and I was beside her. We were talking about pretty much everything. Then all of a sudden she started talking about my future. "Your future will be bright Talia. You'll someday find a guy that makes you seem like you can fly. I wish I could meet him. But remember to find a right guy, and try to find dad first. It would make me happy." I remember it all, the crying, the sadness, the death. "I promise mom, I promise." I told her, squeezing her hand tight. She smiled, and nodded. I remember that day with my heart, and I always will. It's hard to have your mom die infront of your eyes. But I kept my life going anyway. I shook everything out of my head. I needed to find dad, and soon.
