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.


24. Chapter 24: packing for home


Chapter 24: packing for home


Ali’s POV


I woke up as the light streamed through the curtains. I stretched my body into full form and felt my joints pop. I smiled at the thought of yesterday, it was one of the best days in my life. I’ve never been so happy before. I rolled over in my bed and looked over to Jenna’s to find her gone. I vaguely remember staying up for her but I probably fell asleep. She probably came back late and woke up early. I checked the time and it was almost 10:30. I stretched once more and got out of bed. I walked down in my pj’s, not giving a damn about what I looked like. I lazily walked down the stairs and into the kitchen. I smelt pancakes.

‘Hi.’ I grumbled and i walked off to get some coffee. Personally, coffee tastes better with sugar and a small bit of honey. Call me weird or whatever but I like it better with honey.

‘Morning!’ Harry chirped. I yawned and began to drink my coffee.

‘How are you so alive?’ I grumbled. I was still so sleepy.

‘It’s almost 10:30, lazy ass.’ Harry winked. I just shook my head and took a sip of my coffee.

‘Shut up, it’s like 5:00 for me.’ I said, a tad bit more awake this time.

‘How the hell did you get through school?’ He laughed as he flipped a pancake.

‘I don’t know, man. I’m just glad to be out of it.’ I said drinking the rest of my coffee.

‘Here are your pancakes, ma’am.’ Harry handed me my plate of 2 pancakes and he bowed.

‘Thank you, peasant. Please leave.’ I nodded my head.

‘Peasant? Just because I come from England doesn’t mean you use Elizabethan language on me.’ He rolled his eyes.

‘Whatever, mate.’ I say and I nibbled on my pancakes. ‘Do you know where Jenna is?’ I asked him.

‘Spare bedroom with Jake... in her underwear.’ Harry winked. I playfully slapped his arm.

‘Yeah, right, Haz. She’s probably wearing clothes.’ I rolled my eyes.

‘I’m dead serious. Zayn checked up on them 5 minutes ago. He was a bit disgusted and upset.’ He laughed. I rolled my eyes and took the last bite of my last pancake.

‘I’m going to check if your hypothesis is correct.’ I said formally.

‘I give up being your friend. You’re too smart.’ Harry threw his hands up in mock surrender.

‘You’re just jealous.’ I winked at him as I walked out the kitchen door. 

I made my way over to the stairs and made my way up. As I walked past the bathroom, Louis came out with a towel around his waist and shaking his hair with another one. I bit my lip as i looked over his body. He had buff arms and fit abs. And when he was shaking his hair like that, it was just plain attractive. I stared at him for one second longer but in that one second he looked up. He saw the expression on my face and he smirked.

‘Like what you see?’ He chuckled.

‘I, uh, gotta go...’ I turned for the second flight of stairs and just when I put my foot on the first step, Louis snaked his arms around me.

‘You never answered my question.’ He whispered in my ear. He sounded really seductive. I turned around to face him. I fluttered my eyelids and leaned in until we were kissing distance.

‘And you won’t get one.’ I whispered and ran up the stairs. I watched him from above as he stood there frozen. I giggled quietly to myself and walked over to the spare bedroom door. I opened it up to find Jenna and Jake spooning in just their underwear. I giggled to myself and I walked over to the ensuite. I grabbed a glass and filled it up with cold water. I walked over to the couple in bed and leaned down to whisper in their ears.

‘Get up, it’s time to get up.’ But I got no response so I poured the freezing water over their heads. They sputtered and jumped up.

‘What the hell, Ali!?’ Jenna yelled. She tried to keep a straight face but she burst out laughing. I laughed alone with her while Jake sat there trying to get the water out of his ear.

‘Seriously, Alira. What. The. Hell.’ Jake said seriously which made Jenna and I laugh even more. After a five minute laughing fit, we both settled down and Jake raised his eyebrow.

‘Well, you guys wouldn’t wake up.’ I said as I pointed out the obvious. Jake just shook his head as Jenna giggled. Jake grabbed her around the waist and he kissed her forehead.

‘Good morning, beautiful.’ I heard him murmur in her ear.

‘Good morning, handsome.’ She murmured back. I gagged at this and they both turned to look at me and glared.

‘Put some clothes one before you start having sex.’ I say and I watched as Jake stiffened and Jenna turned red. I giggled a bit and walked out the door. I walked down into my room and I grabbed a towel and made my way to the bathroom. I took an hour long shower while I blasted my music. When I was done, I walked back into my room with my towel tightly wrapped around my body.

I picked out a lacey orange top with denim high waisted shorts. I put some lace orange toms on and I put a heart necklace around my neck. I took out my aviator sunglasses I bought yesterday and i put it on top of my head. I applied mascara, eyeliner and lipstick on my lips. I curled my hair and put both sides of my hair in a barrette style. I looked at myself in the mirror and smiled, proud of how my hair looked. I walked out of my room and down the stairs to find everyone sitting in the living room with the tv on. 

‘Am I the last one to get ready?’ I asked. They all nodded and I looked around the room to find all the suitcases by the door.

‘Oh, shit. My suitcase.’ I murmured and everyone’s heads snapped up except for Jenna’s. She knows I forget about all these things. 

‘Come help me, Jenna.’ I winked at her so she knows why I need her. She sighed and jumped up. We made our way to our room and I opened the door to find my clothes everywhere in the room.

‘It’s funny, we’ve only been here for 2 days and it’s as messed up as your room in your house.’ Jenna laughed.

‘I like to be comfortable.’ I whined. I picked up the clothes that were all over the floor and threw them on the bed. Jenna jumped on my bed and began folding. I took out the rest of my clothes from the suitcase and threw them towards Jenna.

‘God bless your soul, Ali.’ Jenna sighed and I rolled my eyes. I hopped onto the bed, facing her, and began folding my clothes.

‘So, what’s with the whole sleeping with Jake in your underwear last night?’ I wiggled my eyebrows at her.

‘OH MY GOD, I GOT TO TELL YOU ABOUT LAST NIGHT!’ She screamed and she was so giddy. I laughed at her.

‘Go on.’ I say.

‘Okay, well, I RODE ON A MOTORBIKE LAST NIGHT, I KNOW RIGHT! It was so much fun, like I’m not even kidding. And then we went to this fancy restaurant and he booked a private room for both of us. He told me he’s rich because he’s dad is the CEO for Mcdonald’s and he’s like, don’t use me for my money. And i’m like, i like you before the money. And we kissed. Oh my god, that kiss was so amazing. I’m not trying to be a romantic and all but I legit felt all the fireworks building up and bursting. And then he’s like, I love you Jenna and I was just like i love you too Jake. Ugh, it was so perfect. And so romantic. Because I really do love him. I know it’s been like two days or something but he’s just so amazing! I do love him. And well, we left the restaurant after we ate because we didn’t want to be fancy for the night so we went to go watch a movie. It was the scariest movie ever but he held me and he kept whispering in my ear that he loves me. And then we went back home and I took him to the spare bedroom and I didn’t want to get my clothes so we just slept in our underwear. But honestly, I didn’t care. I didn’t care about what my body looked like because I felt so comfortable around him. And, ugh, I really do love him, Ali.’ She recounted, rambled and ranted. I laughed.

‘I can tell you love him, you know. You’re eyes sparkle whenever you’re near him and you’re always smiling when you’re with him. He’s perfect for you, you know.’ I sighed. I wish my relationship was as good as hers. i wish it was as simple as hers. But no, i have two great guys that like me. One that I possibly like more than the other. 

‘I know, I can feel it. You’ll get a great relationship with one of the two. I know you will. Choose wisely, Ali. Choose the one you know won’t let you go. Choose the one you  really do feel right with.’ She looked at me in the eye and she smiled. I smiled back. 

‘So, how was your date?’ She asked me. I smiled hugely.

‘Okay, so he blindfolds me and piggy backs me to where we were going. He took off the blindfold and we were at the beach. There was a red carpet leading to a table on the sand. It was so beautiful. There were candles on the table and roses around the table. It was beautiful and picturesque and everything. Then the food came and I expected something real fancy, y’know. Like pasta or lasagne but instead it was kfc. Yep, it was cute and we just used our hands and stuff. We played 21 questions and all. Did you know his favourite movie is Forest Gump? That’s cute, haha. Then we went home and we kissed again. And the fireworks went everywhere.’ I smiled.

‘Of course I know it’s Forest Gump, massive fan, remember?’ Jenna laughed. 

‘Oh yeah, you know sometimes I forget their famous.’ I laughed.

‘Me too. They don’t seem like they are.’ She folded the last piece of clothing left and we packed them into my suitcase. I tried zipping it up but it wouldn’t. I sat on it and it never worked, Jenna tried it as well and it still didn’t. 

‘What the hell.’ I sighed. I popped my head out the door and found Liam walking up.

‘Hey, Liam. Can you help me?’ I asked.

‘Yeah, sure.’ He replied and he walked over to our room. ‘What do you need help with?’ He asked. 

‘My suitcase won’t close.’ I sighed and he laughed. He sat down on top and closed it with ease.

‘how the hell did you do that?’ i asked.

‘Magic.’ He laughed and made his way to the door.

‘Thanks, Liam!’ i shout.

‘You’re welcome!’ He shouts back and walks down the stairs.

I turned around to find Jenna fixing herself up in the mirror. She wore a blue top with a bow on top and she wrapped a white three quarter sleeve blazer. She had white shorts and blue sandals and around her neck was a gold feather necklace.

‘That necklace is pretty, where’d you get it from?’ I asked her.

‘Um, I think gloss. i don’t remember.’ She laughed a bit.

‘Hey, isn’t that the top you made a few months ago?’ I asked her.

‘Yeah, this is the first time I’ve worn it.’ She looked down at her feet. (A/N i know it’s been made before and all but let’s pretend she made it, kay.)

‘It’s amazing, Jenna. I don’t get why you think you’re not that good. You really are.’ I say. 

‘Yeah, but no one would want me. I don’t want to go to uni.’ She sighed.

‘I know how you feel.’ I muttered.

‘Yeah, your photography is beautiful.’ She smiles.

‘Thanks.’ I smiled back and that’s when I remember. ‘Oh yeah, Harry offered me to be their photographer.’ 

‘That’s amazing, Ali! I’m so happy for you!’ She smiles even bigger and gives me a hug.

‘Maybe, I can ask them to be your designer?’ i offered.

‘Yeah, right. Like they’d want me. i’m not that good.’ She looked down at her feet.

‘I’m not gonna take that crap. You’re amazing and you’re gonna be their designer once they see your work.’ I say and she looked up at me. 

‘I think we should go down.’ She says and I nodded. I grabbed my suitcase and my phone and my sunnies and walked down the stairs.

‘Okay, you’re done we should get going.’ Liam said and we all walked out the door.

‘Where’s Jake?’ I heard Jenna ask someone.

‘He went home to get dressed, he said to call him when you’re leaving.’ Zayn replied.

‘Oh, i gotta call him!’ She grabbed her phone and walked out the door.

‘Now, we gotta wait for them to finish their conversation.’ i sighed and we all sat down in the living room.

‘Hey, Niall. Where’s Janelle?’ I asked him. I still feel uneasy around her but I’ms tarting to get over it. She seems over it too, anyway.

‘She went home, she said she’ll meet us at your house.’ He replied and I nodded.

‘So are you boyfriend and girlfriend now?’ I wiggled my eyebrows at him and he blushed.

‘Yeah...’ He looked down and smiled.

‘Aww, Nialler! That’s so cute! You really like her, don’t you?’ I pressed on.

‘Yeah...’ He said in the same tone as before. i smiled big and hugged him.

‘Okay, he said he’ll meet us at our house, let’s go?’ Jenna came back in the room and we all walked out the door and made our way to the little yacht.
