COMPLETED. Alira Somers. A 19 year old girl who isn't that much of a fan of One Direction. But her best friend, Jenna, won tickets to a little 'promo' about One Direction. Little did they know, One Direction was performing. That's where they lay eyes on both of them for the first time. That's when Alira changed her views on them. That's when 2/5 will fall for her. That's when all hell breaks loose in her life.

**Blurb is misleading, it isn't as good as I thought it would be. Personally, it's not my best but by all means, if you want to read it go ahead! Just let me warn you, it's not as good as the blurb says.


14. Chapter 14: heart to heart talks


Chapter 14: heart to heart talks.


I looked up from my phone and put on a fake smile. I tried to engage in the conversations, i tried to eat my food, i tried to act normal. But I couldn’t. How are you supposed to act normal when you just got a death threat again? Who could this person be! And who’s this ‘boyfriend’ they keep saying. I text them back;

Me- I have no boyfriend.

Now, I can feel myself shaking. Ugh, i’m so scared. Whoever this person is they’re going to hurt a guy in my life. What if it’s one of the boys? Or Matt? They can’t hurt Matt! He’s the only person in the world I can totally be myself with. Apart from Jenna. 

Unknown- Louis Tomlinson.

That’s when my heart starts to beat. They can’t hurt Lou. What did we ever do to this person! How do they even know that I know Louis? They’re going to hurt him and it’s going to be all my fault. He could possibly die because of me. I’m such a terrible person. This is such a bad week. Why now? Just when I feel so happy, just when I meet new people Blake has to come back and I just have to get death threats and Janelle could possibly be out to get me.

Speaking of Janelle, I still need to tell Jenna. I was supposed to tell her when I got out of the pool but it completely slipped my mind. I should probably tell her but she looks so happy. Even if she’s just texting someone, i can tell she’s so happy. I’ve never seen her eyes sparkle so much. Should i tell her now or later?

‘Helloooo, earth to Ali?’ i zone back in to find Liam clicking in my face. I shook my head and slapped his hand away.

‘What?’ i say, turning back to my food. Everyone else is finished already, including Niall. 

‘You sat there for like 15 minutes without touching your food.’ Liam looked at me with such a worried face. I sighed.

‘I’m fine, guys. I’m not that hungry anymore.’ and with that I walked outside. I sat down on one of the lounges and gazed up at the sky. It was sunset and it looked so beautiful. I can hear them all in the kitchen.

‘Go talk to her, Harry.’ I heard Louis usher Harry. Oh, I thought Louis was going to volunteer straight off.

‘What? Why me? You go talk to her.’ Harry whispered to him but it was that soft. I wanted to tell them I can hear them but I was starting to get entertained.

‘I don’t know what to say to her.’ and I can almost imagine Louis looking down at his feet as he said that.

‘Fine, I’ll go’ I heard an irish accent speak up.

‘No, boys. I’ll go. We need a girl-to-girl talk.’ Jenna said louder than all of them. I sighed in relief, Jenna’s the only one I told about the death threats i got earlier in the week. Plus, I need to talk to her about ‘Jake’.

I started to play with my fingers and act like i didn’t hear them arguing in the kitchen. 

‘Hey’ Jenna said, dropping herself on the lounge next to me.

‘Fancy seeing you here, love’ I mocked a british accent. She giggled and I laughed along. It’s funny because we have 4 british boys a few metres away from us right now.

‘What’s up, buttercup?’ 

‘Not a thing, chicken wing.’ i winked at her. We both laughed because that’s what Matt alway did to us when we asked him the sam question.

‘No, really. What’s wrong?’ she asked, more seriously this time. I bit my lip, not sure if i should talk out loud because of the boys.

‘Erm, i think the boys are listening.’ i whispered. She cocked her head and nodded. 

‘I’ll be just a sec.’ She said emphasising the time. I nodded and she walked into the house.  Next thing i know, i hear the tv playing loudly. She came back with a smug smile on her face. I rolled my eyes at her and she sat down beside me.

‘Okay, now you can tell me.’ 

‘Well, i was just thinking of Matt and how much I miss him. Like, does he have to leave for modeling? He can just model here. I mean, I just miss him so much.’ i lied. Well, I wasn’t really lying because I did miss Matt. I miss my gay best friend who would always help me through any situation. But that wasn’t exactly the truth.

‘He’ll be back soon. He’s only in Queensland, he’s just a call away. You can call him whenever you want. And that modeling is his career. I know he wants to be an author and all but right now, he’s modeling because he’s so gorgeous!’ She tried comforting me. But the problem was, that wasn’t the problem. I gave her a smile, hoping that was the end of the conversation.

‘Okay, now that that’s finished. What’s really bugging you?’ She stared intently at me. Damn, this girl knows me well. I sighed and looked her in the eye.

‘I got another death threat. And I found out who the ‘boyfriend’ was.’ I whispered. Her face stayed blank but her eyes screamed out frightened. 

‘Who’s the guy?’ She tried to joke but I can tell she’s just as scared as me.

‘It’s Lou.’ I muttered and dropping my eyes to my lap. I heard her gasp and her arm wrap around me.

‘It’s okay. Maybe... maybe we should tell them about this. If it concerns Louis, then maybe we should tell him?’ 

‘Yeah, we should. I’ve got something else to tell you.’ I looked back up and Jenna pulled away.

‘What is it?’ she said strongly.

‘I think... i think Janelle’s back.’ I tried to say it with a strong voice but it faltered. It broke at the end. Her eyes widened and her jaw dropped.

‘H-how do you know?’ She whispered. Jenna has never been terrified of someone as much as she was scared of Janelle. Janelle broke Jenna’s arm and she took one of her boyfriend’s away from her. Janelle’s a downright bitch.

‘Niall met her. I’m not sure if she’s Janelle Janelle but I’m pretty sure she is.’

‘How are you sure?’

‘Niall said that she got angry when he mentioned our names to her. I’m pretty sure it’s her.’ 

‘We’re so dead, Ali.’ Jenna whispered with a sob. Tears were spilling from her eyes.

I hate seeing Jenna cry, it’s the saddest thing. I pulled her in for a hug. I can literally hear all the thoughts in her head. She’s thinking about her year-long boyfriend who she was crazy about. They were so in love. But then Janelle came by with her bitchy ass and stole him. Jenna was broken. She still dreams about him sometimes, it’s so sad. She was never angry at Janelle, she was just scared. Jenna went to confront Janelle one day and it resulted with her arm broken. You’d think that’s revenge enough, eh? But with Janelle, her definition of revenge is life long. 

‘Shh, Jen. We’ll be alright. She’s probably changed.’ i know by saying that sounds like my hopes are high. I know Janelle would never change. She holds a really long grudge on everyone. Even if you accidentally bumped into her in the hallways, she’d hate you forever. She’s like our personal Regina George.

‘Yeah, right Ali. She hates us. All because of that.’ she cried into my shirt. 

‘Stop crying, Jenna. We’ll be alright.’

‘It’s not us I’m worried about. I’m worried about Niall, she could hurt him too. She knows that we care about our friends more than ourselves.’ My heart tightened. I never thought about that.

‘Well, we can’t really tell Niall not to date her. He really looks happy.’ My heart squeezed even more. Nothing can hurt Niall. He’s like a little furbie. 

‘Oh, well. Maybe she has changed.’ I laughed when said that.

‘So, who’s this Jake guy I’ve been hearing about?’ I wiggled my eyebrows at her and winked. Her face broke into the biggest smile and her eyes twinkled. 

‘Oh my god. I have to tell you the whole story. Okay, well I was sitting at the beach, y’know thinking about stuff. And Jake comes out behind me with two ice-creams. We said hi and all and he said I looked lonely so he bought me an ice cream. He bought me strawberry. Can you believe that? It’s like fucking destiny. I never believed in that but oh my god, i swear this is it. And we talked and flirted and we ended up falling in the beach and just throwing water at each other. Then, I had to leave because it was like 4. And we got each other’s numbers. This is the cute best friend/boyfriend kind of bit. I put in his phone ‘JennaSexyAssBlack’ because I am sexy and all and I took a photo of myself with a really weird face. And he puts in my phone ‘Jake DaHotAssKid Smith’ and he put a weird photo. I swear he’s so sweet and funny. He’s hot too. He has a really unique kind of hazel. It’s like sea green in the middle and then it turns out hazel. And he has dirty blonde hair. He has bulked up biceps. He’s just... ugh, he’s so beautiful!’ She rambled about him. I know she’s so happy she met him because 1) she swore. and 2) she was grinning from ear to ear through that whole time. I guess I have to meet this guy and be the protective brother and get all the info on him and all. But she looks so happy, the last time i saw her this happy was when she was with that guy Janelle stole. I hope he stays with her forever and ever. 

‘I gotta meet this guy.’ I said, sternly. She just giggled and all her tears were gone. We sat there laughing for a while. Then the door opened and Liam walked towards us.

‘We’re going for a bonfire at the beach, wanna come?’ 


‘Yeah, sure. Can I bring Jake?’ Jenna said eagerly.

‘Er, sure.’ he said, awkwardly and looking inside the house from the corner of his eye. I narrowed my eyes at him and I realised Zayn is probably saying something.

‘Excellent! I’ll ring him up now and I’ll go get changed.’ Jenna said, not realising Liam’s behaviour. She walked off with the biggest smile and all the boys came outside to talk to me.

‘Seriously, Liam. What was with the whole awkward yes?’ I demanded straight off.

‘Erm, well...’ He looked at Niall.

‘Erm, well he just, uh...’ Niall looked at Harry.

‘Erm, well he just, uh wanted to, uh...’ Harry Looked at Zayn.

‘Erm, well he just, uh wanted to, uh make sure that, uh...’ Zayn looked at Louis.

‘Erm, well he just, uh wanted to, uh make sure that, uh we were all fine with it?’ Louis said making it come out like a question.

‘OKay, that was just surreal. But really cool. Don’t ever do that again. And whatever you say, it didn’t seem true.’ I looked over at Zayn and he put his hands up in mock surrender.

‘I said nothing,’ and he walked off.

‘Okay, well. I’m getting changed. Can’t wait to meet this Jake guy.’ I smiled happily. And I heard Zayn mutter something under his breath along the line of ‘i’m not...’ I just brushed it off and headed upstairs to get changed. I’ve never had a bonfire on the beach, something to cross off my bucketlist.





Not a particularly good chapter, I know. But meh, it kind of explained a few things. Kind of. I’m really liking this Jake guy. Hope you guys do too.
