Age is Just a Number

What will happen when a heartbroken 15-year-old girl, Mina, gets to finally meet her favorite band of all time, One Direction, and falls in love with one of the boys? They are clearly all older than her so will she able to gain happiness or be heartbroken once again?


4. Keep the Jacket


I woke up with a giggle in the morning. What happened the night before was replayed in my dreams. Louis leaning in, me expecting a kiss, out walking my father, and we quickly stepped away. Only after the awkward moment when Louis tried to pretend like he was zipping up my jacket. We only just met, and I know its silly, but I think I had fallen in love with him. 

I climbed out of my bed and opened the blinds to my window. There was a beautiful view of a park just across the street. It was quite large, with a playground and a little pond with benches around it. I saw little kids playing, running around and swinging on the swing set. I loved kids. They were so cute and innocent. Well most were. 

"Mina!" I heard Dad call out. "Yes Daddy?" I said poking my head out the door. "Oh you're up early," he said just as he reached the top of the stairs. My room was right next to the stairs. "Hurry up and get ready, you're going to have to come with me again." I frowned. I really wanted to go, and I was super excited but I had just gotten back two days ago and barely even saw Mom. "Is Mom still home?" I asked, then quickly looked at the clock. 7:00AM. Wow I was up early. "Oh yes, today is her day off, it's Friday," he said then walked down the hall to his room. I smiled to myself as I quickly went back into my room to shower and get dressed. 

I walked out of the bathroom about an hour later, with my hair in wavy curls (they weren't fluffy or frizzy, they were tamed), and dressed. I wore a loose, somewhat flowy black tank-top that had the Eiffel Tower on it that said 'Paris' in cursive letters. I was wearing black athletic shorts, and a pair of black Toms. I noticed my bed was still a mess so I made my bed, and almost walked out the door. My eye was caught by the black jacket on my study chair. I grabbed it and was hit by the scent of cologne. Louis scent was still on it from yesterday. I smiled to myself and wore it, then skipped out of my room to greet Mom.



I woke up to the sound of my alarm. 7:00AM. I jumped out of bed, and rushed into the hall that connected my room with the other boys. "WAKE UP!!!" I called out cheerfully. "Rise and shine my little stars!" I knocked on their doors repeatedly. Liam was the first to wake up rubbing his eyes as he opened the door and walked into the bathroom. Niall was next. "I don't smell any breakfast Louis," he said in a sleepy voice, sounding miserable. I let out a laugh. "I'll have Liam right to it! Maybe Harry can make us some omelets or something," I said as he walked downstairs to use the bathroom. Slowly Zayn and Harry walked out of their rooms and gave me sleepy stairs. I smiled at them as they stared. "I'll get cooking," Harry said as he went downstairs. "I'll go help," Zayn said. 

I went back into my room to use the bathroom that was in between Harry's room and my room. I quickly showed and got changed. I wore a blue shirt with white stripes on it and some navy trousers. I grabbed my black toms just as went downstairs to join the boys for breakfast. After breakfast we all sat down for a minute in the lounge, sipping some tea. "Do you think Mina will be joining us today?" Harry said. A bit of jealousy sparked within me. "Possible," Liam said. "I asked Stanley about it, he said until they find someone to watch her." We all took a sip of our tea. "I don't see why he doesn't just bring her along everyday," I said bravely. "She isn't doing us any harm." Liam looked at me, his eyebrows coming together in thought. "Louis, if she's around us a lot, fans might get to her and she doesn't seem like she could take it." I frowned. That was true, the fans got hectic sometimes. Like the whole Larry Stylinson had gotten out of hand. 

"That's true, but no one has to know about her," Zayn said. I smiled at the idea, but then frowned. "So we'd just hide her from society? Not likely with paps everywhere," Liam said, taking the words straight out of my mouth. "Besides," he continued, looking at me. "She's just a girl." 



Mom and I were eating breakfast together, catching up on news for the past few weeks. She's a clothing designer for celebrities as well as an occasional stylist. But she was also a designer for celebs in America too. I got chances to meet Bridget Mendler, Demi Lavato, and Miley Cyrus. I usually got my outfits made by Mom. Yesterday she was out making an outfit for Cher Lloyd. I awkwardly fangirled in front of her and she laughed. "So Mina, house the family?" she asked. "Oh they're all good! They miss you guys," I said with a smile, kind of sad that we were so far away. Mom and Dad's family were really close, especially since Mom's older brother, Cheryll's dad, married Dad's older sister, Cheryll's mom.

Dad came downstairs and said "Come on Mina, time to go. Bye Piper, love." He quickly gave my mom a kiss, which I thought was so adorable because they were so freaking perfect, and then we went to the car.

After a while we reached the concert hall we were at the day before. We walked in and I realized I need to go to the restroom. "Daddy, I need to get to the bathroom," I said, he pointed down a hall and I thanked him as we separated. After I got out of the bathroom, I bumped into someone. "Omph!" I cried as I started to wobble and fall, but was caught by whoever I had bumped into. "Sorry about that, thanks for helping me," I said and looked up to see Louis. My face started to burn. "No worries Mina," he said then winked at me. "I like your jacket, it suits you." I quickly started to unzip it and give it to him but he stopped me. "Don't worry bout it," Louis said, zipping it back up. I could feel my heart skip a beat as we looked into each others eyes.



Her eyes had a little winkling shine in them as we stared at each other. She looked so innocent and small. My heart skipped a beat. Was I falling for her? But I barely knew her! I leaned in, slowly and was a few inches away from her face when she took a step back and said, "Let's exchange numbers!" I was about to feel bad but I chuckled at the sight of how red her face was. "Sure," I said taking out my phone. We exchanged our numbers, and then there was an awkward silence. "Well let's go to the others," I said gesturing her to follow me.

"MINA!" I heard Harry, Niall, and Zayn yell as they ran off the stage to meet her. Liam smiled and waved at her, walking slowly behind the others. "Hi guys," she said with a small smile. "Mina I was worried that we'd never see you again," Harry said. "But here I am," she said with a big friendly smile. "Yep, here you are," Liam said, with a small smile on hi face. I don't know why, but I got the feeling that Liam didn't want Mina around, but I didn't think I should bother to ask him. 

"Louis could I talk to you for a minute," Liam said, pulling me away from the others. "Sure," I said. "Do you like her?" he said bluntly. I knew not to beat around the bush because Liam was a smart cookie, "Yeah, I think so." I smiled to myself as I looked over at her. She was smiling and exchanging numbers with the boys. "Louis, don't. Don't fall for her, she's-" Liam was saying but then Harry called out, "Hey Liam! Mina wants your number!" Liam looked at me quickly and then walked over to Mina.

I stood there shocked. I thought Liam would support me, not say that. I felt angry for a moment. "Kind of hard not to fall for her when I already have," I muttered silently to myself.
