**Alyssa's P.O.V.**

So a lot has happen since you saw me last. The boys have released a new album called Take Me Home and went on tour. I didn't go and neither did Julia because I wanted to stay with my dad and Julia didn't want to leave me. Louis wanted to stay and the others wanted to cancel the tour but management wouldn't let them. Also, Harry and Zayn kind of had a mutual break-up with Megan and Nikki because they were always away from each other. But we're all friends still so don't worry! 

A few rounds of treatment and surgery and my dad is now cancer free (wish I could say the same for real life)! Everything went very well and now he just has to do three-month check-ups. 

Anyway, it's January 31st- almost February and it's snowing. All of the horses have their blankets on and we're supposed to be getting a big snow storm so that means we need a snowball fight with everyone that took lessons here or really good barn friends A.K.A. barn family. I called all of my friends who included my best friends Lizzy, Tyler, Glenn, Veronica, Kathrine (but we call her Kat),  Charlie (who is like my second mom in the story and in real-life), and Sherri. 

Lizzy is about 16 and she is a Directioner too. She has long blonde hair and bright, piercing blue eyes. I've known her forever and she was my best friend. She also rides my horse Lottie in competitions. Her sister Kat is about 12 and she looks almost exactly like Lizzy and her mother Charlie. She rides Rudy our little pony. Charlie is so kind to people and complete strangers. When ever you need anything, she's always there for. Tyler is about 6 feet tall and has blonde hair and blue eyes and he's about 19 too. I used to have a huge crush on him and then One Direction popped out of nowhere. He rides Dreamer and sometimes Lottie. Glenn is an adult but acts like an 8 year old. He looks like one of those tough guys you run into at a bar in a small town but once you talk to him and know him, he's a complete softie. He owns Scout along with his step-daughter Sherri. Veronica has been my trainer for as long as I can remember. My mom has been friends with her since childhood and Veronica is also like a mother to me also. Her daughters Carissa and Natalie also come here and ride with us along with the lesson kids who I am not to found of. Sherri is so skinny and gorgeous. Her hair is long and auburn with bright blue eyes. 

But anyway, I called everybody and they said they could all come and it would be nice to get together and have some fun. 

I was still laying in bed when I called everyone and it was 10 so I decided to get dressed, put layers on, and out to the tack room to get my saddle. As I walked in, I saw the new pictures I hung up while the boys were on tour. I put in a picture of Chip and I when I was just learning how to ride, a picture of Julia, Niall, Louis, and I with Sweet Pea and Tundra; one of Lizzy and Lottie with me and Tundra, there was one of my dad and my mom at the engagement party, another one of all five boys and I at the engagement party, then there was one of Louis and I at the party.

I looked so happy with Louis in that picture. We didn't know the picture was being take. Our foreheads were together and we were both smiling. I had a flower behind my ear that Louis put there and his arms were around me. 

I wiped some tears away remembering that night so well. I couldn't believe that the party was in August. I missed the boys so much while they were away. We picked them up a few days ago because they spent the holidays with their families. When we went to pick them up, Julia and I went by ourselves because we wouldn't fit everyone in one SU.V. so we took two! 

 

**FLASHBACK**

When we arrived at the airport, we waited in their terminal at baggage claim. No fans or paparazzi were there because management didn't say when or where their flight was landing. As we waited, we saw so many reunions going on around us as we patiently waited for ours to come. That's when I saw it.

I saw five boys walking towards us. One blonde, Four brunettes. They all had disguises on and then one dipped their sunglasses to the bridge of their nose and smirked at me. That's when I ran towards the boy I loved. 

"LOUIS!" I exclaimed. He opened his arms for me and ran into his arms that wrapped around me. He nuzzled his face into my neck and I smiled.

"I missed you so much baby. You have no idea. I missed you," he whispered and I felt his chest shake like he was crying. He pulled away and I saw tears streaming down his face.

"Babe why are you crying? I'm right here," I whispered as I wiped the tears off of his faces. He laughed and kissed my nose. "I should be the one crying here," I whispered in his ear. He laughed again and pulled me into another hug. I saw Niall and Julia hugging so I smiled.

"Lets go home," Louis said. I looked at him and smiled as he said the word 'home'. We walked away hand-in-hand back to the cars and drove home.

 

**FLASHBACK OVER**

 

As I grabbed my saddle, I took it into the barn and put it on a saddle rack. I went into the feed room and got my brushes and halter with a lead attached to it. I walked into field where Tundra galloped right up to me and I hopped on him bareback and brought him back to the barn where I hopped off, brushed him up, and saddled up. I was wearing my Browning hoodie, camo jacket, muck boots, and jeans with thermos under (http://www.polyvore.com/winter_trail_ride/set?id=71841026). My hair was in a straight hair was in a ponytail and some diamond stud earrings along with my engagement ring. 

When I climbed onto my horse I felt free. I felt like all of these problems from my dad was lifted off of my shoulders and being around Tundra helped it. I felt Tundra's legs move beneath me at the walk, his fluffy winter coat swaying with the cold breeze, and his breath being visible in the frosty air. I stopped him at the top of the hill we had and just watched life go by. The snow came up to about his knees- so about 2 feet of snow and the trees looked so pretty. 

When it was time to go back, I ran Tundra at a collected canter and down the middle of the field then slowed him down to the walk at the little stream. He jumped over and I laughed. When we got back to the barn, I hopped off, the pain from the cold shooting up my leg while I waited for the pain to subside, I saw Louis walk into the barn with my dad's Carrhart on and some jeans on. 

"Hey baby," he smiled at me.

"Hey," I replied whilst he kissed me on my cold lips. I walked back over to Tundra and took his bridle off and his halter back on to hook him up to the cross ties. "Don't do anything to him. I have to get his cooler. Leave the saddle on him to keep kidneys warm," 

"Okay baby. I'll stay here with him," he said. I walked out of the barn and back into the tack room. I grabbed the fleece cooler from my tack trunk. I walked back out into the cold and into the warm barn. I took Tundra's saddle off and saddle pad then replaced them with the cooler. I picked out his feet and then went into the feed room to get treats. When I walked out I saw Louis cowarding against a wall and Tundra just looked excited for his treats.

"When you went into the feed room he looked like that!" Louis exclaimed whilst pointing to my horse. 

"He just wants the treats Lou," I laughed. I stuck out my hand and gave the treats to Tundra and he sucked them out of my flat palm. I laughed with the tickling sensation from his lips. Louis walked back over to me and kissed my cheek.

"When is everyone coming?" He asked.

"Around 1:00. It's 11:30 now," I replied. After cooling Tundra off, I put his heavy winter blanket on, lead him to the field, and he was joined with his friends. I walked back up the barn where Louis still was and collected my brushes and placed them in the cabinet in the feed room. When I walked out of the feed room, I gathered up my tack and walked to the tack room. Louis was following me. I placed everything in its place then sat on my tack trunk, staring at the pictures. Louis took a seat next to me. We sat there in silence, staring at my past and some pictures from a few months ago.  I felt Lou grab my hand and he squeezed it in comfort. I squeezed back. He wrapped his arms around me and I leaned into him and let some tears escape. 

"Alyssa? What's wrong?" He asked whilst rubbing my back. 

"I don't know what to do sometimes Louis. Did you know while you were on tour... my dad flipped out on all of us due to his medicine? He called us mean names and I actually thought about cutting myself. But I turned on the radio and 'Little Things' just turned on. The DJ announced that it was coming on. Then after that it was 'What Makes You Beautiful' came on and I laughed because I went on YouTube and watched the old video diaries and I laughed for the longest time. After everything my dad apologized but I just want you to know that know matter what people say about you and the boys, you have to know that you changed people's lives. Thank you," I told him. I leaned in and kissed his cheek after my speech. He looked shocked, knowing that I almost hurt myself but he and his friends saved me.

"I love you babe. Don't ever hurt yourself please. I can't loose you and I can't bare life without you. I will always love you  no matter what happens," he said. He kissed me on the lips with love and the gesture was sweet. I stayed in his arms while he sang 'Little Things' and 'Look After You' to me. I smiled. After sitting in the tack room for 20 minutes, we got up and back to the house. The time read 12:00. I crawled up the stairs and went into my closet looking for my winter hunting gear. My waterproof camo pants and jacket laid out on my bed.

I heard the door open and Louis walked in.

"Do you have any snow pants?" He asked with a smile.

"Yeah hold on," I replied. I grabbed a pair from my brother's closet and his jacket too. I walked back into my room where I placed everything on the bed. 

"It's about 12:15. If we get ready now, we can make a fort and snowballs now," I told him.

"Lets do this poo!" He exclaimed. I laughed then got my snow gear on. I put on wool socks and my waterproof camo gloves with a camo face mask. Louis looked exactly like me, all of the gear on and I laughed. 

"The country is comin' out of you," I giggled. I pulled our masks down and kissed him. After we kissed, I put my boots on and so did Lou then we walked down the stairs and out of the door. It the back field, we made a fort which took about 20 minutes to make then we walked into the woods and found a deer stand and made some snowballs and stocked the deer stand.  When we got back to the house, I saw Lizzy, Kat, and Charlie driving up the  driveway. After them, I saw Veronica, Natalie, and Carissa then Ty, Glenn, and Sherri behind them. The cars were parked and everyone was climbing out, I ran over to my second family and embraced them.

"Oh my god I missed you guys so much!" I exclaimed. 

"Alyssa! OMGOMGOMG! Are they all here?!?!?" Lizzy whisper-yelled. 

"Just Louis so far but don't you DARE fangirl!" I replied with a laugh. 

"Oh my god you girls are crazy," Ty whispered.

"Nuh-uh! We're perfectly normal! The fangirl life chose us! We didn't choose it!" I exclaimed. Then I heard Louis' laugh. 

"Oh no! He heard us," Lizzy said. 

"When are the others coming?!" I yelled towards Louis. 

"They should be here soon," he said in-between laughs. I stuck my tongue out and he was still laughing. I gave Ty a hug and he hugged back. He was my best guy friend. I basically grew up with the kid. 

"How you've been?" He asked. 

"I... uh... could be better. I'm just stressed with this whole wedding and my dad," I replied in a hushed tone. He gave me another hug and then I hugged Glenn. 

"Sup kido?" He asked with a laugh. 

"I'm 19 Glenn! That name was for me, like, 6 years ago!" I replied with a laugh.

'You'll always be kido! You and Lizzy!" He exclaimed. We both laughed. 

"LETS DO THIS POO!" Carissa exclaimed.

"We're waiting for Julia, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Niall!" I replied. Lizzy was dancing like a madman and Louis and I was laughing hysterically. Then I saw a car coming up the driveway. I saw Julia driving and then she waved. Lizzy stopped dancing and hugged me. 

"Thank you for meeting them!" She whispered into my ear. I laughed and everyone climbed out of the car. "Hey guys!" I waved. Lizzy was smiling and she saw Harry and she smiled like I never saw her smile before. I knew she liked Harry but meeting him the skin changed her feelings. She couldn't believe she was meeting them. 

"Everyone gather around!" I exclaimed. "Okay the teams are Charlie, Kat, Glenn, Veronica, Carissa, Natalie, and Sherri; and the other team is me, Lou, Lizzy, Harry, Ty, Julia, Niall, Liam, and Zayn. Any complaints with the teams?"  

"No we're good!" They all replied. I went over the rules: no shots above the shoulder and basically the whole property is the playing field. We immediately ran off in different directions. My team ran off in to the woods and we had walkie-talkies. 

"Okay, we have these so if we find the other team, we can gather and ambush," Harry said. Lizzy was hanging onto his every word. 

"We have a few deer stands spread throughout the property so use these to overlook everything," I said. We spread out. Me, Lou, Harry, Lizzy, and Ty while Julia and the others went the other way. We saw a deer stand and climbed up the ladder and sat on the stand.

"There's Sherri and Glenn! Near the train tracks! Tell Julia!" Ty said. I was in-between him and Louis and I spoke to Julia. She understood where they were so they went in on the prey. We saw Veronica, her kids, Charlie, and Kat. 

"We found the others. You get Glenn and Sherri while we get the others," I said. Julia and the boys agreed. We quietly snuck up on them, making snowballs on the way. Then Lizzy, Ty, and I threw the first few snowballs. Mine hit Kat in the back while the other snowballs hit Charlie and Veronica. Veronica was guarding her kids. They made snowballs and threw them at us while we were all laughing. 

"We got Glenn and Sherri!" I heard through the walkie. The girls retrieved to the woods and then we went back to the barn. 

"We should get some horses," I said. 

"But we can't ride!" Louis exclaimed. 

"Okay, Ty, Alyssa, and I will get horses!" Lizzy replied with a laugh. Harry and Louis agreed and then Lizzy, Ty, and I got our horses. I hopped on Tundra with just a halter and 2 leads while Ty hopped on Dreamer with a halter and 2 leads, and Lizzy hopped on Lottie with a halter and 2 leads. We did a full blown gallop to the fence and then I stopped with the others. Ty hopped off and opened the gate for us then closing it. He hopped back on and then we were off again. 

"So when's the wedding?" Ty asked.

"In about 6 months. Lizzy? Wanna be a bridesmaid?" I asked.

"OMG YES!" She exclaimed. Ty and I laughed. "Well both of your families are invited too," I told both of them. They smiled and then I saw Glenn, Sherri, Veronica, Carissa, Nat, Charlie, and Kat. We charged after them and then they saw the horses. They laughed as I got Tundra to rear on command. 

"I think we won!" Ty exclaimed. They laughed and I radioed the others telling them to head back to the barn. As the 3 of us ran back to the barn, we laughed and cooled the horses down.

"I miss when we used to do this everyday," Liz spoke. 

"I miss it too. You 2 are like the little sisters I never had," Ty replied. 

"Hey! You're only 5 months older than me!" I exclaimed with a laugh. 

"True but I feel like I have to protect the both of you all of the time. You 2 are just so fragile and vulnerable," he mumbled. 

"Hey! We're pretty in pink but dangerous in camo!" I exclaimed. 

"Alyssa? Are you sad that you never got your country boy?" Lizzy asked. She glanced at Ty, knowing that I used to have a crush on him but the Louis came along.

"Yes and no. I mean yeah I wish Louis could ride and hunt but I wish he didn't because I don't think I would've been happy without him. I love him way too much and he gets me. He may be part of One Direction but I know him as Louis William Tomlinson from Doncaster ya' know?" I told them.

"I'll teach him to hunt!" Ty suggested. 

"No it's okay Ty. He's perfect the way he is. He's charming, funny, cheeky, sweet, and he makes me feel so beautiful. Like I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with him. Yeah I might have to be away from him for a few months but I would have you guys to come visit or I could be home," I replied. By the time the conversation ended, the horses were cooled off so we turned them back out into the field. 

"So when is the wedding and when should I get my dress?" Lizzy asked.

"Well, you would have to come to Doncaster to get it and it's in about 6 months. It all depends when everything for Louis is like signings and tours andthat kind of stuff. Probably in the summer. It's going to be in the back field and it's going to look so pretty," I gushed. 

By the time we walked into the house, everyone was in warm clothes but I heard my name being called and then I saw an excited Louis run towards me. 

"ALYSSA!" He exclaimed then wrapped me into a bear hug.

"Louis-can't-breath!" I said. 

"Oh sorry love," he loosened his strength and kissed my cheek. Lizzy was smiling at Harry who was giving her the cheeky-dimply smile he always pulled on girls. I giggled when Louis picked me up swung me over his shoulder and up to my room. 

"Put me down!" I exclaimed whilst laughing. He put me down in the middle of my room and went to my dresser to get sweatpants. He grabbed the 'Future Mrs. Tomlinson' shirt and my black sweatpants that said 'Barn Bum' in white letters. He placed them on the bed, pecked me on the lips, and then walked out of my room. I went into my bathroom adn started the shower. I undressed and hopped in letting the warm water defrost me from the cold weather. When I got out of the shower, I got dressed, brushed my hair, and walked out of my room and down the stairs where everyone was watching a movie in my family room. 

"What are we watching?" I whispered in Louis' ear as I sat on his lap.

"Flicka, Carissa, Natalie, and Kat picked it out," he whispered back. We were at the part where the character was getting picked up from boarding school. The movie dragged on and of course I cried when the mountain loion attacked Flicka- the beautiful black Mustang- and Katie told her father that it was okay to shoot them both.

When she meant that her father could shoot them both was that the bond between Flicka and herself was so strong that if one was dead, the other one was too. 

"It's okay Daddy, you can shoot us both," she said in tears. My eyes were waterd along with Lizzy's, Kat's, Natalie's, Ty's, Glenn's, Julia's, and Veronica's. Sherri left before the movie began becuase she had to study for a huge test for college. 

When the movie ended, Tim McGraw's song 'My Little Girl' played on the screen and I bawled. That was one of me and my Daddy's song. Louis rubbed soothing circles into my back. I heard footsteps coming down the stairs and saw my dad coming into view. He came down for his medicine.

"Daddy!" I hopped up from my spot on Louis' lap and ran towards my father to hug him.

"What's wrong baby girl?" 

"I love you and I don't want to loose you. I want you to be there for my wedding and I want you to be there for when I have kids and I don't want you to leave and get sick again," I cried into his shoulder. 

"Shhh... baby girl it's okay. 

Gotta hold on easy as I let you go

Gonna tell you how much I love you

Though you think you already know
 

I remember I thought you looked like an angel

Wrapped in pink, so soft and warm

You've had me wrapped around your finger

Since the day you were born
 

You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That'll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl
 

When you were in trouble that crooked little smile

Could melt my heart of stone

Now look at you, I've turned around

And you've almost grown
 

Sometimes you're asleep I whisper 'I love you'

In the moonlight at your door

As I walk away, I hear you say"

Daddy, love you more"
 

You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That'll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl
 

Someday, some boy will come

And ask me for your hand

But I won't say yes to him unless I know

He's the half that makes you whole
 

He has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man

I know he'll say that he's in love

But between you and me

He won't be good enough
 

You beautiful baby from the outside in

Chase your dreams but always know the road

That'll lead you home again

Go on, take on this whole world

But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl"

 

He sang the song to me and rubbed soothing circles in my back as I cried. Everyone was in the other room trying not to invade our moment. 

"I love you Daddy," I whispered. 

"I love you too pal," he kissed my cheek and leg go of me to take his medicine. "I'm going to bed guys! Night!" He said. Everyone said goodnight and then he went upstairs. I looked at the clock and it was 9:00.

"We're going to go. Thanks for having us Alyssa!" Veronica said. After they left, Glenn left, then Julia and the boys, and then Charlie and Kat. All that was left in the room was Ty, Liz, Louis, and I. 

"I can't believe you're marrying Louis," Liz said to me. Louis and I laughed but controlled ourselves. 

"This wedding better be good," Ty said. 

"Who said you were invited?" I asked in a playful tone whilst shoving him to the ground. He laughed and then Lizzy piled on top of us. Louis just watched us and laughed at us. Liz, Ty, and I were like siblings and that's how it's been since we were 5 and 8. 

"Liz I'll drive you home. Can we leave? I'm tired," he complained. 

"Alright!" She said whilst getting up. "Thanks for having us Lyssie and Lou!" She said whilst hugging us. "Mention me to Harry and give him my number. But only if he's interested," she whispered into my ear. 

"I wil!" I whispered back. The two of them left and then Louis swept me off of my feet and carried me bridal style into our room. He placed me on the bed and tucked me in. He climbed in next to me. 

I fell into a deep sleep to Louis humming 'Little Things' to me.
