2. london

I woke up hours later to the sound of the flight attendants voice on the intercom. "Everyone fasten your seat belts for we are about to land" the intercom rang through my ears. About 15 minutes later, we landed. I wasn't even sure where we stopped. I thought it was a direct flight. "Hello passengers! We are proud to announce the arrival in Heathrow International Airpot!" the person said on the intercom. She had said something else but I was distracted by my trail of thoughts. London. We were in London. My best friend, who's real name is Harry's mom Anne worked in Heathrow airport. "I'm screwed" I thought. "Huh?" Jess said. Apparently I was thinking aloud. "Nothing. Just nothing" I said quickly.


We hopped off the plane and headed toward the next gate when I heard my name. "Dani?" the woman said with her hand on my shoulder, holding me back from the crowd of students. I turned around and sure enough it was Anne. Why did this have to happen? Why couldn't Anne work any other day? I took a deep breath. "Hi Anne!" I said, acting delighted to see her. "I cant believe it! Are you coming back or just visiting? We were talking about you the other night" she replied. 'Talking? About me? What sort of event would happen and make them talk about me?' I thought for a brief moment. "I'm here with my school. were stopping here for the night, then heading to Paris tomorrow" said trying to escape before Jessica noticed. Too late. "Dani! Who's this? I'm Jessica!" she said running towards Anne and I. "Um Jess? This is Anne. Anne, this is Jessica. Now we have to go. I'll see you soon bye!" I said running from them as fast as possible. Jess couldn't find out I knew Harry Styles' mum. Let alone, him. Jess followed X-Factor in the U.K. and was in love with Niall Horan, one of the 5 band members. If she found out I knew Harry, I'd never hear the end of it. "How do you know Dani?" I over heard Jess ask Anne. 'Oh shit' I thought. "Well actually, her and my son were best friends before she left for Canada. We haven't spoken to her since. I'm surprised she's going to Paris. It was their dream to go to France together" Anne said pointing in my direction. I tied my long and wavy dirty blond hair in a messy bun. I tried to hide but Jess ran behind me and grabbed my arm, pulling me back towards Anne. "Anyways, Anne, you're this Eric Harrington's mum. I've heard Dani talk about him only once" Jess said.I mentally face palmed myself. Yup, Jess won't forgive me after this one. "Eric? Who's Eric Harrington? My son is Harry Styles not this Eric Harrington" Anne said eyeballing me. I felt my cheeks turn as red as a tomato. Jess turned and shot me an evil look. "Harry Styles on X-Factor? I love him!" Jess exclaimed. I thought she'd kill me but she hadn't - yet. "Yes. You watch the show from Canada?" Anne asked. "No, but I watch it on Youtube. It's always more fascinating when people have accents" Jess giggled. I looked up at her big hazel eyes. A look of anger came across her face. "Dani! I need to talk to you. Now." she stated. "Kay" I mumbled. Anne handed me a card with her cell phone number printed on it. I said goodbye. Jessica grabbed my wrist and pulled me back towards the group, who were getting into a bus to bring us to the hotel for the night.

We sat down in our bus seats. I glanced up at Jess, who I caught staring at me angrily. "Can I help you Jess?" I said trying to lighten the mood. It didn't work. "Why didn't you tell me your best friend was in my favorite band? Why did you lie about it? I guess that means your not from London and your from Holmes Chapel. Aren't you?" she said starting to raise her voice at me. I calmly replied "First of all, I was born in London. We moved to Holmes Chapel when I was 2 years old. I only lied to you because I was afraid if someone else found out and for some reason he became famous from X-Factor I'd never be left alone. I didn't mean to lie to hurt you. I only did it because I've always wanted to be a singer and musician and it would kill me knowing my best friend since I was 2 was living his dream and I couldn't pursue mine" I stated. I was always into music and Harry, well, he became interested in music around year 7. He was in a band and I always went solo. I never had the gut to sing in front of anyone but myself, therefore holding me back. She turned her head to face the floor. "You didn't have to lie. And besides, how am I supposed to know if you wanted to be a singer? You never told me. You probably never freaking told me the truth about anything" she raised her voice once more. I stood up and went to sit alone in the very back of the bus. How was I going to sleep in the same room as her tonight?


When we got to the hotel, I switched rooms with a girl called Britney, who had her own room. I did my nighttime ritual which included showering, brushing my teeth, putting on my pj's, etc.
