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.

Chapter 23: Jakenna date


Jenna’s POV (This is everything from when they came home from the shops)


When I walked through the door with my 10 bags, I felt the excitement of tonight. The date was around 7:30.

‘Hey, Lou. What time are we leaving?’ I heard Ali ask from behind me.

‘Around 7:30 ish.’ He replied. I looked at the clock the same time Ali did.

‘It’s 6:00!’ She screamed and she grabbed my arm and bolted for our room. I went over to my bed and dropped the bags I was carrying.

‘I’m gonna go have a shower.’ Alira told me over her shoulder.

‘Try and not take long.’ I pleaded.

‘I’m not gonna wash my hair so it’s okay.’ She informed me and she walked into the shower.

I walked around the room, picking up everything off the floor. I put my new stuff back in my bag and I grabbed Ali’s underwear for her and laid it on her bed. 5 minutes later, Ali came out with a tower wrapped around her body and her hair in a bun on her head.

‘Okay, I already took your underwear out for you. I’ll take a shower while you get your clothes on.’ I say, walking towards the bathroom with my towel.

‘Okay, thanks babe.’ She thanked me and I nodded my head. 

I stripped off all my clothes and hopped in. I washed my body and everything. I walked into our room to find Ali at the vanity sorting through our makeup colours I saw her put blues aside for me. I put on the underwear that was set on my bed and I put the blue dress I bought on. It was a scuba blue with a black bow belt. 

‘Okay, Im done putting my shit on. Let’s do this.’ I had a smile glued on my face.

‘Ohmygod. You swore! You’re really excited, aren’t you?’ She winked at me.

‘Of course I’m excited! Jake is like the perfect guy.’ I went into a dream state as I talked about him. I wrapped a robe over my dress and walked over to her.

‘I’ll do your stuff first then you do mine, yeah?’ She said and I nodded. ‘I already know what to do!’ She chirped.

i closed my eyes as she brushed everything onto my face. She took longer on my eyes so I have a feeling it’s something special. She put blush on my cheeks and a pinkish coloured lipstick and glossed it up. I loved how she didn’t put foundation on because honestly, I’m white enough. I closed my eyes again as she did my hair. I want my hair to be a surprise. She took a while, she used the curler a lot. I felt her bobby pin one side and she draped it over my shoulder. I felt her step back.

‘You’re done!’ I opened my eyes to find her smiling and I looked at myself in the mirror.

‘Wow.’ i gasped out. She did a smokey eye on my eyes and it brought out my sapphire blue eyes. I had rosy cheeks and shiny pink lips. ‘Your turn!’ I chirped and we swapped places.

She closed her eyes as I worked on her and she didn’t open it once. She just made my eyes stand out but I decided to make her look natural. I made her eyes sort of toned with brown. Dark brown on top and it lightens up near her lashes. I made her lashes thick with mascara and I made her cheeks rosy. I thought it would compliment her brown eyes. I glossed up her lips with a bright pink. I didn’t do much to her hair, I just made it wavy at the ends and clipped both sides of her hair in a barrette style.

‘Done!’ I said happily and she checked her reflection.

‘Wow.’ She breathed. ‘This is beautiful, Jenna.’ She smiled at me. She looked at the clock and I looked as well. It’s 7:15.

‘We better finish getting ready.’ She says and I walked over to the rest of my stuff.

I slipped on my black hollow heels and I put on a black bangle on my right arm. I hooked in black feather earrings and put all the essentials in my bag. I looked at myself in mirror and smiled. 

‘Let’s go.’ I said to Ali and we linked our arms.

We walked down the stairs, arm in arm, and we were both glowing. We watched as Louis and Jake stood up from where they were. And we watched as their jaws drop to the floor. Ali and I exchanged looks and we giggled. We let go of each other and I walked up to Jake.

‘I think something flew in.’ I whispered in his ear. He closed his mouth but he wouldn’t stop staring at me and I giggled.

‘You look... wow.’ He was literally speechless and I giggled again.

‘And you look ‘wow’ yourself.’ I winked and he smiled.

‘You ready?’ He asks me.

‘As ready as I’ll ever be.’ I laughed and we headed for the door. Louis and Ali already left so it was only us to leave. He opened the door for me and bowed. I curtsied and we both laughed.

‘Look, I know you’re wearing a dress and all but I want you to ride my motorbike with me.’ He said.

‘Ooooh, I’ve always wanted to go on a motorbike. Let’s go!’ I say, practically running down the stairs.

‘How you can run in those heels is a mystery to me.’ He laughed and shook his head. 

‘It’s easy, I’ll teach you!’ I winked.

‘Honestly, not to sound gay or anything but I’d actually like to try.’ I laughed like a retard when he said this. He hopped onto the bike and revved the engine. I stood there awkwardly, not knowing what to do. He looked at me and laughed.

‘Here, do you want to ride like a guy or a girl?’ He asked me.

‘Y’know what, I’m gonna yolo this and ride like a guy.’ He laughed at my yolo reference.

‘Okay, put your legs on either side of the bike. And I suggest you wear this.’ And he pulled out a helmet.

‘It better not ruin my hair.’ I say while putting it on.

‘I’d never let that happen.’ He murmured. I smiled at him but I doubt he saw it.

‘Okay, wrap your arms around my waist and don’t you dare let go.’

‘Yes, sir.’ I said but it was muffled by the helmet.

He revved up the engine and we began to fly down the streets. It was an exhilarating feeling. I laughed as the wind blew up my dress causing it to fly up. 

‘My dress, Jake!’ I screamed.

‘Put it under your leg.’ He screamed back. I quickly squeezed it between my leg and the seat before it flew up again. We rode for a bit longer and he began to slow down.

‘We’re here, babe.’ Jake said as he turned the bike off. I whipped off my helmet, making sure it didn’t ruin my hair.

‘How’s the hair?’ I ask him, pointing to it.

‘Perfect.’ He smiled and wrapped his arm around my waist and kissed my cheek. I blushed crimson and smiled at the ground.

We walked through the door and I laid eyes on the most fanciest restaurant ever. I gave a sharp intake of breath as I took in the features of the place.

‘Wow, how much did you spend on this Jake?’ For some reason I hate it when someone spends so much on me.

‘It’s not much, I promise.’ He whispered in my ear. He told the reception person our reservations and they showed us to our seat.

‘Why is it so private?’ I asked him. We were brought to our own room with no one around.

‘Because I want it special and I don’t want it to be too loud.’

‘You must be really rich.’ I murmured.

‘My dad is head of CEO for McDonald’s.’

‘Are you kidding!’ I giggled.

‘Yeah, so you have a rich boyfriend. Please don’t use me like the other girls out there.’ He looked down onto his lap. I got out of my seat and made my way to him. I sat on his lap and made him look into my eyes.

‘I liked you before I knew about the money.’ I whispered and I kissed him. 

As I kissed him, I felt all the sparks. I felt them as they flew everywhere. I felt all my worries go away. I felt like I was on top of the world. I felt like this is it. I felt like this is love. But how is it possible to be in love in 2 days? Doesn’t love take time? But then don’t people say once you feel it, it’s right? I don’t know anymore. All I know is that Jake is something special and I want to keep him no matter what. Because I am in love.

‘I love you, Jenna.’ Jake whispered once we pulled away. I smiled at him.

‘I love you too, Jake.’ And once the words left my mouth, I knew they were true. 

We both sat there grinning at each other. It wasn’t one of those awkward silences, it was those romantic ones. I just stared into his hazel green eyes and he stared back. 

‘You’re so beautiful, Jenna.’ He whispers.

‘You’re so amazing, Jake.’ I whispered back.

The moment was ruined when a waited cleared his throat. I jumped off Jake’s lap and sat back into mine. The waited came and put a dish in the middle of the table and he left. Jake leaned over the table so he was a little bit closer to me.

‘Honestly, I’m not up for something fancy. So after we eat, let’s go watch a movie.’ Jake says quietly.

‘Movies are better than fancy dinners.’ I laugh and he pulled back.

We ate the steak in gravy that was on the table and I chuckled a bit at the gravy.

‘Mind if I hear the joke?’ He asked.

‘It’s more of a directioner thing.’ I laugh again.

‘How did you meet them?’ He sounded very curious.

‘Okay, i’m a massive fan of One Direction. I’m not going to deny that. So I got an email about a some promo about them at this diner somewhere in Darling Harbour and it turned out to be a Go Show. They performed and all and at the end they talked to us and they gave us their number and well, yeah.’ I recounted what happened on Monday.

‘A massive fan of One Direction? You don’t seem like it, you know.’ 

‘Well, I sort of got over it after that time Louis came over.’

‘Oooh, fair enough.’ He shrugged his shoulders.

By that time we finished eating our steak. We sort of rushed it because we wanted to get out of here.

‘I already paid, so we can just walk out.’ He grabbed my hand and we walked out of the place. We walked down to the nearest Hoyts and we picked a movie. We chose something scary because I love scary movies. We got all our popcorn and stuff and we walked in. The cinema was empty except for us.

‘You didn’t hire this whole place out, did you?’ I looked at him pointedly.

‘No, I swear.’ He sounded sincere which made me giggle. 

We chose a seat in the middle of the room and we sort of cuddled. I shivered a bit because it was cold in the cinema and I didn’t bring a jacket. Jake took off his blazer and he wrapped it around me.

‘So you don’t freeze to death.’ He whispered in my ear and he kissed my ear. I blushed deep and I kissed him on the lips.

‘So your lips don’t freeze to death.’ I winked. The cinema went darker and the movie started. A scream broke out from the screen and I screamed with it. 

‘That was creepy.’ I whispered and Jake chuckled. 

It was half way through the movie and I was scared out of my wits. I hardly took my head out of Jake’s chest because it was that scary. ‘Jenna, I love you.’ He whispered into my ear every now and then. And every time he did so I smiled like mad and look up which caused me to look at the screen and make me scared. It was pretty much a plan to make me scared. When the movie ended, I practically ran out of the room.

‘That was hella scary. Don’t make me watch that again.’ I said to Jake.

‘Yes, ma’am.’ He saluted me and I rolled my eyes.

We hopped onto the bike and we drove back to the house. When we were outside he kissed me again. The sparks turned into fireworks and butterflies were everywhere in my stomach. I grabbed his hand and dragged him to the spare bedroom on the third floor without anyone noticing.

‘So, after I sleep on the couch you tell me you guys have a spare bedroom.’ Jake shook his head.

‘Sort of slipped our mind?’ It came out as a question.

‘Oh well, let’s snuggle tonight.’ Jake grabbed my hand and laid me down next to him.

‘This may sound weird but I’m going to sleep in my underwear, if you don’t mind.’ I began stripping my dress off. I was self-conscious at one point in my life but I forgot about that. I just learnt to love myself. 

‘You’re so beautiful.’ Jake whispered and I blushed. He took off his clothes and we just snuggled on the bed.

‘I love you, Jake.’ I mumbled.

‘I love you too, Jenna.’ and he kissed my forehead. I smiled and I drifted off to sleep.






Awwwwww, I love their relationship. This is like the perfect relationship, I just wish I had one like this. I’m so forever alone. Idk, I’m such a romantic. By the way, I couldn’t think of a good ship name for these two so I just chose Jakenna. Don’t judge, k.
