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.


8. Chapter 8: breakeven


Chapter 8: Breakeven


Alira’s POV


‘ALI! ALI! WAKE UP! WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP! ALIRAAAAAAAA!’ Jenna screamed in my ears while jumping up and down on my bed. 

I groaned and rolled over, ‘I’m awake’ I mumbled and fell asleep again.


‘DON’T TOUCH MY COOKIES!’ I shriek. Jenna just laughs and runs down the stairs. I bolt out of bed and chase her. My cookies cannot be touched. Their my cookies and my cookies only. I run into the kitchen and go to the cupboard where my cookies should always be. Their not there.

‘JENNAAAA, I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!’ i bellowed. Her laugh rings out throughout the house. She suddenly appears in the doorway.

‘Just kill me after you get dressed, ok? ONE DIRECTION IS COMING IN AN HOUR! LOOK PRETTY!’ she screamed out the last bit. I just laughed, she’s so excited.

I walk up to my room and grabbed all the stuff i needed. I turned on my ipod dock and Valerie by Whitney Houston played.

Well sometimes I go out by myself

And I look across the water

And I think of all the things, what you're doing

And in my head I paint a picture

I started to dance and sing into the bar of soap. The song ended and Breakeven by The Script went on. I screamed and yelled to myself, ‘I LOVE THIS SONG!’

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing

Just praying to a God that I don't believe in

'Cause I got time while she got freedom

'Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even

I screamed out the song. I swear, Breakeven is such a beautiful song. The lyrics and omg the guys! I finished cleaning myself and I walk out the door into my room, humming Breakeven. Then the sound of applause fills the room.

‘Gah!’ i breathe out.

‘Amazing singing, girlie!’ Louis said in a very feminine voice. 

‘Truly talented’ Niall’s rich irish voice rang out.

‘You should totally be part of our band.’ Liam laughed.

‘Join us’ Harry’s accent made us sound like ‘oohz.’

Then Zayn walked into the room and screamed out, ‘Vas Happenin’

‘OUT!’ i yelled and pushed them out the door.

‘Noooo, i want you to sing to us’ Louis ran back into my room. I sighed, he needs to get out. I need to get changed. I’m naked. I only have a towel wrapped around me. 

‘I have to get changed, Lou!’ 

He looks at me up and down. And i noticed the other guys do so. I wrapped the towel around me more tightly. I feel so insecure right now.

‘Do i pass the test?’ I asked all of them.

Liam, Niall and Zayn shrugged and walked out. I noticed Harry and Louis blushed and hastily leave. I was slightly confused at the latter’s reaction but i brushed it off. I got changed into my bikini, just in case we were swimming straight away, and i put on shorts and a singlet. I grabbed my bag that I needed for the weekend and walked down the stairs.

‘I’m readyyy!’ I sing songed. Harry jumped up and grabbed my bag and walked out. Jenna strode over to me and winked. I gave her a confused look, she never winks at me. She walks out the door and the boys followed her. Except for Louis, he grabbed my hand and led me out the door. 

I stopped dead on the driveway. The orange Kombi sat on my driveway. I squealed and ran over to it, admiring the beauties of it. I’ve always loved Kombis. It reminded me of the scooby doo days.

‘I love Kombis!’ I screamed, jumping up and down and all the boys laughed.

‘We do too!’ Louis screamed and we both started to jump up and down. By then, Jenna was in hysterics and the boys had no air left in them. I stopped dead and gave them a serious look.

‘It’s not even funny.’ which made them laugh even harder. I really don’t get what was funny. I hopped into the gorgeous car and as we were about to drive out I realised i never closed the door.

‘STOP!’ Louis slammed his foot on the breaks and quickly whipped his head around, as if Blake’s going to jump out of no where. I rolled my eyes and hopped off. I put the key in the lock and twisted.

‘Bloody hell, Ali. I thought you saw someone or something’ Jenna told me. 

I laughed and I saw Louis’ body relax. That’s when I really got confused.

He knows Blake’s in jail. Why the hell is he scared out of his mind? There’s nothing to be scared about. There’s no more Blake for a year. Louis kept glancing at me from the rearview mirror. He looks really worried, I can see it in his eyes. Harry looked worried too. All the boys did but Louis and Harry looked worried the most. Jenna was slightly off too. There’s something going on. I swear. But I don’t want to know just yet. It might ruin my weekend, this is my weekend. I’m going to enjoy this one. The radio went on and Breakeven started playing. I gasped and automatically bobbed my head.

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing.

Just praying to a God that I don’t believe in.

Cause I got time and she got freedom

Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break even.

Everyone chuckled but sang along. By the chorus I was belting out the lyrics and by the time we got to the jetty we were all in high spirits. This will be one of the best weekends ever, i can feel it.




I don’t like this chapter! This is such a horrible chapter. But i needed to update so, yeah. I just put down whatever popped into my head. I’m literally obsessed with Breakeven right now. Sorry, about this chapter. I hate it too.
