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.


9. Chapter 9: my weekend


Chapter 9: my weekend.


Jenna’s POV


It was a heaps good ride to the jetty. We sang along to the songs on the radio and had a little 21 questions. But they asked us the questions. Louis was driving and he had such retarded questions. Most of them concerning carrots. Liam rode shotgun and he asked things about life like what we want, it was a bit deep. Harry and Niall sat in the middle part. Harry asked us our favourite things. Niall, he asked us random questions. Zayn asked us things about our past, embarrassing moments and stuff. It was a great hour drive to the jetty. Ali started to ask them questions but I ended up answering half of them, causing the guys to giggle every now and then. I should be embarrassed cause i know all that, right? But i wasn’t, it made everything more funnier. I sat in the middle while Ali and Zayn sat on either side of me. 

I noticed everyone shit themselves when Ali yelled them to stop. I got a bit scared too but they need start acting normal. Ali hates it when people are scared for her. Believe me, been there done that. It’s what caused us to not talk to each other for 3 weeks. She doesn’t like to be the centre of attention or the one people has to take care of. Even when she’s sick, she won’t let anyone take care of her. I don’t know why but she spends more time thinking about others more than herself. As we pulled up to the jetty, Ali and I got so excited. This is actually real. I’m going to be spending a whole weekend with one direction. This is every fan’s dream! This has been my dream for 18 months! I’ve been there for one direction since Torn. I know that i live in Australia but i heard the british X Factor was amazing so I watched it online. And BAM! i see them performing at the judges’ house. 

I grabbed my bag and i grabbed Ali’s hand. 

We walked behind the boys while they led the way. I didn’t know what kind of boat i was expecting. But i definitely wasn’t expecting a yacht. I mean, honestly it’s about a 30 minute boat ride to Manly. Maybe, they want to take a detour. But man, the yacht was gorgeous! It had fairy lights along the boat. There was a balcony and out own driver. I walked slower, admiring the outside of it. It was beautiful. I didn’t realise i stopped until Zayn walked over to me.

‘A bit nervous, are we?’ His thick accent rang in my ears. I smiled and he returned the gesture.

‘Not at all, just admiring the boat. how much was it?’ I couldn’t help but ask. It looked more than expensive.

‘You don’t have to worry about that. You don’t have to pay for it. Well, come one little one.’ He slung his arm around my shoulders and pulled me into him. My heart leapt with joy. Zayn was always my favourite. With our bodies in contact and his scent in my nose, I was giddy with happiness. I automatically wrapped my arm around his waist. Well, when someone puts their arm on your shoulders, you wrap your arm around their waist. It’s how i was raised. 

We hopped onto the boat and as soon as we walked inside, Ali wiggled her eyebrows at me. I know what that means. She’s not going to stop until she knows every thought I’ve ever had about him. I quickly let go of Zayn when the rest of the boys started to give us questioning looks. Then, Zayn sighed and reluctantly pulled his arm away. I walked over to the balcony and stared out at the view. The Harbour Bridge and Luna Park was in sight. I’ve always wanted to climb the Harbour Bridge.

‘I do too. Let’s do it together?’ Zayn said, coming up behind me. Did I really say that out loud?

‘Yes, you did.’ He chuckled.

‘Okay, this is retarded. I’m saying thoughts out loud’ i blurted out. Zayn snickered.

‘You’re so weird, Jenna.’ I laughed along with him because I am weird and i wouldn’t change it for the world. 

‘Let’s go back in’ I say, grabbing his hand. 

When we walked in, we were greeted to the sight of Louis on top of Harry. I saw Zayn smile widely and I gave him a questioning glance. He just gave me the ‘long story’ look and i nodded. It’s none of my business anyway. 

‘Guysssss, what’s your twiterrr naaaaaaame?’ Louis practically sang.

‘Mine’s @JennaBanana’ 

‘JennaBanana?’ Liam said with a light laugh.

‘Shut up, it rhymed. It’s better than yours anyway’ I said with a wink.

‘Mine’s @CallMeAlira’ Ali said, walking into the room with Niall right behind her. I wiggled my eyebrows at her and she mirrored my expression when she did the same. This is going to be an interesting talk.

‘I thought you were about to say call me maybe, then i would’ve broken out into the song but...’ Lou said.

I decided to be cool and turn on the song and blasted it. I watch Louis’ face break into a grin and he sang along.

I through a wish in the well

Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell

I looked to you as it fell

And now you’re in my way

Everyone was dancing and singing. We were getting along with these boys. I was in the middle of spinning and jumping when I noticed Ali’s strawberry blonde hair dash into another room. I casually danced my way over to the door. Then when no one wa slooking I slipped through the door.


Alira’s POV


I was tired of dancing. I didn’t want to dance anymore. I slipped in through the door when no one was looking. I just need privacy right now. I sat down on the little sofa that was sitting in the middle of the room. It was lumpy and comfortable. I sat down for a while and played with the ring on my thumb. It was a greyish-silver ring with a little blue gem in the middle. And all over the the ring were carved patterns. I got this ring off Shania, she bought it for me saying it’s a little promise ring. That she’ll come back one day. I didn’t know what it meant at first until the next day. Blake told me through clenched teeth that she ran away. Good for her, I thought. 

My mind wandered off to the talk Niall and I had earlier. He told me that both Louis and Harry will try to spend a lot of time with me over the weekend. Then he told me, they’re in this little war over me. I laughed at that, as if two international famous boys will fight over me. They have the world at their feet, they don’t need me.

‘You. Me. Talk. Now’ i hear Jenna’s voice travel to me. I rearranged my sitting position so that i was cross-legged on the sofa, facing Jenna.

‘True dat!’ i used my ghetto voice. I’ve always wanted to be ghetto, it seems so cool. ‘Me first!’ I chirped. Jenna groaned and i put my ‘tell me everything’ face on. 

‘There’s nothing really going on between me and Zayn.’ she said, her eyes falling onto the ground.

‘Don’t do that to me! I know you like him’ i wiggled my eyebrows at her and leaned forward. 

‘Okay, yes i do like him. No, he doesn’t like me. Yes, i know it’s true. No, i’m not lying.’ she fired at me. 

‘Unfair, Jen! He probably does like you. It looks like he does. I mean even Nate never looked at you like that, no offence babe. I mean, i swear he’s into you. He’s eyes follow your every move. Don’t do anything stupid, okay. I mean like he probably doesn’t know what he feels yet but I swear he knows he likes you deep down.’ I babbled on. I saw Jenna roll her eyes. She never usually does that unless she wants to move on to what she wants.

‘Okay, i’m done. What do you want to know?’ 

‘I’m confused. You and Lou or you and Niall?’ She asks. Oh, shoot. I forgot about how me and Niall walked into the room together. 

‘Erm, neither?’ I said, a bit unsure myself. I mean, me and Louis did fall asleep together...

‘Then, why did you and Niall walk out of the same room together?’ Jenna asked me. I sighed.

‘We were just talking.’ I told her, not wanting to move further on.

‘And...’ she badgered on.

‘And nothing’ I said in a flat tone.

‘You suck, Ali.’ she muttered and I grinned. I won that, effyeaaah!

Suddenly the music cut off and the door banged open. Our heads snapped up and we saw the boys in the doorway. Lou pushed through and opened up his arms.

‘WE’RE HEEEEEEREEEEE!’ He singsonged and we both giggled but jumped up. I love Manly but I never get to stay here for long. Jenna rarely goes Manly, so she’s thrilled. I’m excited because I get to spend a happy weekend with 5 amazing boys and my best friend.
