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.


16. Chapter 16: the story of us


Chapter 16: the story of us


Harry's POV


I watched as Louis leaned in and kissed Ali. She smiled into the kiss and she looked so happy. That's when I broke. That kiss was uncalled for. Louis knows I like her and it's unfair that he got to kiss her before me. I watched a little while longer when they pulled away. She had a smile that could kill me, she had sparkles in her eyes. You can tell he likes him, I wished she looked at me like that. My heart dropped to my stomach and my eyes filled with tears. I really like her. I like her so much. I've never liked this for a girl before. Her smile makes me so happy, her laughs makes me laugh along. And her eyes makes me feel like I can melt in them. I don't know if it's love because it's only been a few days since I met her. But I know I like her so much it hurts. 

Louis put his arm around her shoulders and she wrapped her arm around his waist. She looked up into his face and she smiled even wider. That's when the tears spilt over. I wished she looked at me like that. I haven't given up on her yet. I walked back towards the beach and wiped the tears away. I breathed in deeply and tried to make sure I didn't sound like I was crying. I sat down beside Zayn and he looked like he was about to cry. 

'Hey bradford bad boy. What's wrong with you?' I asked him. I sounded normal which is good. 

'Jake asked Jenna to be his girlfriend.' his voice broke. He looked so broken.

'Ali and Louis kissed.' I whispered to him. 

'Oh, I'm sorry Harry.' he said looking at me. He had tears in his eyes. 

'I'm sorry too Zayn. Maybe we can win our girls over.' he smiled at that. 

'Maybe' he said back. 

I looked up and I saw Niall with a girl. He had sparkles in his eyes and I can tell she made him really happy. 

'Whos that?' I asked Zayn, pointing to the chick. 

'That's Janelle.' he replied. I got up and walked over to Niall. 

'Hey, Nialler.' I said, smiling. 

'Oh, hey Harry.' Niall said. I looked at him as if he was missing something so obvious.

'Oh, yeah. Janelle this is Harry and Harry this is Janelle.' he said, introducing us. 

'Hi, Janelle.' I said, putting on my winning smile and shaking her hand. 

'Hi, Harry.' she said. She had a nice smile. 

'Janelle?' we heard a voice crack. We all saw Jenna in tears and string at janelle. 

'W-what are y-you doing here?' she stuttered. 

'Oh, Jenna, hi.' Janelle said. She sounded a little bit angry. What happened with these two?

'Okay, this has been bugging me for a while. What went down with you two?' Niall announced. Everyone turned to both of them. Jenna was crying and she always flinched whenever janelle moved. And janelle had her eyes narrowed and her teeth clenched. 

'What the hell is she doing here?' Alira whispered and her eyes were shining with tears. Louis tightened his grip and whispered in her ear. I looked away, my heart was breaking. I want to be the one to hold her when she's upset. 

‘Oh, great. She’s here too.’ Janelle muttered under her breath and no one heard but me. My eyebrows furrowed, I am really confused. 

‘Please tell me what’s going on.’ Niall whispered, looking at Janelle. He looked upset.


Alira’s POV



‘Jenna! Don’t do that, that’s disgusting!’ I scream while laughing. Jenna put mustard on cheese and began nibbling on it. It was disgusting to look at.

‘What? It’s nice. You should try it’ she smiled, handing me the mustard coated cheese. I fake gagged and shivered.

‘There is no way in hell am I going to try that.’ I said, pushing her hand and the revolting this she calls food away.

‘Where’s Janelle?’ Jenna said, after she finished eating her mustard cheese.

‘I dunno, I haven’t seen her all day.’ I looked around the area and I couldn’t find her anywhere.

‘Ugh, I hate being in year 11. I can’t believe we have to start practicing for the HSC, it’s not until next year for eff’s sake!’ she groaned while reading what’s on her page.

‘You fucking bitches!’ We heard Janelle’s voice screech. We turned to see who she was picking on this time and it turns out to be us.

‘Janelle? What’s wrong?’ I asked.

‘Don’t go all innocent on me. I heard why you’re my friends. You guys happy? I got you at the fucking top of the fucking social list. I can’t believe you did this! You guys were supposed to be my best friends. I can’t believe you used me just to become popular. And the fact that people knew before me? You guys are fucking whores!’

‘We didn’t do anything! We never used you, Janelle. You seriously think we’re those kind of people? We wouldn’t hurt our friends for shit!’ I yelled back. I was on the verge of tears. I’m not that kind of person. I don’t use people to become popular. I’d rather be a friendless loser than have friends who secretly hate me.

‘Janelle, calm down. Who told you this?’ Jenna tried to reason with her.

‘Everyone in the fucking school. Sick friends you guys are.’ She screamed, slapping me across the face and push Jenna over.

‘What the fuck!?’ Jenna screamed. I clutched my cheek, i never expected that. She uses words not her body. 

‘That’s what you get for using me and for lying to me.’ and with that she walked off.



Honestly, you’d expect us to be getting revenge not her. But Jenna and I are not those kind of people. We don’t hurt others and we most definitely don’t get revenge. I don’t know who started that stupid rumour and i don’t know why she’s taking it too far.

‘When we were in year 11, someone started some stupid rumour that me and Jenna were using Janelle for popularity. She confronted us and things turned really ugly. I still can’t believe you believed that. We would never ever do that, especially to you.’ I finished off, looking at her.

‘Bullshit, i saw how popular you two got. You really did use me, it wasn’t just some stupid rumour.’ Janelle scolded.

‘We wouldn’t d-do that to you. J-janelle, you were our b-best friend. Plus, we don’t e-even care about b-being popular.’ Jenna stuttered. Jake pulled her in and I almost smiled at how protective he is of her. He better be good to her.

‘Everyone cares about being popular.’ Janelle said through gritted teeth. I refrained from rolling my eyes. She’s so stubborn! We never did anything, there was no way I’d use her for popularity.The tears spilt down my face and I started to sob. Louis pulled me in closer and I cried into his chest again.

‘Not us.’ I whispered and everyone stopped talking. All that could be heard was the waves crashing, the fire crackling and me and Jenna sobbing. It was unnerving, knowing the girl who slapped me was sitting a few feet away from me. And the fact that I know she’s going to get revenge. And that there is some other psycho out to get me. Everything just has to happen when I find myself happy.

‘I think you should let this one go, Janelle. I know you’re upset about this but it was just a rumour and it was a few years ago.’ Niall whispered. I looked over to him and he had silent tears down his face. It’s heartbreaking to see him cry. It’s against the law to see him hurt, it’s so upsetting. I can’t look at him anymore. I buried my head into Louis’ chest and he pulled me in even tighter. 

‘Fine.’ Janelle murmured and i really do think she means it this time.

‘I’m sorry it seemed like we were using you. We really weren’t, I hope you know that, Janelle.’ I spoke up. I walked over to Jenna and hugged her tightly. i hate seeing her cry. It just shatters everything in me.


Janelle’s POV


I think you should let this one go, Janelle. I know you’re upest about this but it was just a rumour and it was a few years ago.’ Niall whispered from where he sat next to me. I looked at him and silent tears were falling from his eyes. I can’t break now, nothing in the world can stop me from getting my revenge. I can’t just see him cry. I’ll just agree and still use him, I know I feel bad but I really have to. It’s not something i can easily let go. 

‘Fine.’ I murmured and turned away.

‘i’m sorry it seemed like we were using you. We really weren’t, I hope you know that, Janelle.’ Ali said and walked over to Jenna. They both gripped onto each other while they both cried. Jenna crying always made me want to cry, it was truly upsetting. But that feeling stopped when i heard that rumour. Honestly, I don’t believe the crap they’re saying. I know they used me. Sure, I lost some respect after i hit them but they deserved that. And they deserve what I’m going to give them. 






and that’s the story of Jenna, Janelle and Alira. It’s not as interesting as I imagined it but oh well. Hope you enjoyed this chapter.
