You Are The Only Exception

Cleo Clark gets to spend a month "babysitting" her best friends, UK pop boy band One Direction.


1. One

*Cleo's POV*

"I'm at a payphoooone trying to call home.." I sang along to the radio as I fixed my room. As long as there's music I can get anything done.

 "Love you guys." I whispered to a picture frame of mom and dad and kissed it before placing it on my side table along with a flower I picked earlier this morning. 
They died in a car crash a year and a half ago. I was also supposed to have a brother but  he was just 4 months old when he died. I'm living in the US with  Aunt Macy. She was the one who took care of me after my parents' accident. She's very supportive and caring and loving.

Today is the first week of summer vacation, and before I do anything fun I must have a cleaning session in my condo unit. It's quite messy.  And there might be surprise guests. And I have to impress Aunt Macy when she comes back from her 2-month long expedition/adventure whatever you call it. I don't know. I'm quite of a neat freak.

I tossed everything I don't need anymore in a large black plastic bag. I feather-dusted my books and arranged them neatly from the shortest to tallest on the shelf.

"Finally, I'm done with the shelves! Now time for the closet.." I fixed my messy ponytail, changing it into a bun. I wiped my face with a towel and walked to the closet door to open it.

I got terrified when a man suddenly jumped out of the closet.

"HOLY SHIT!" I almost got a heart attack. I felt like I needed to use my self-defense skills. For a moment I didn't know who he was but then I realized he's Louis.

Louis has been my best friend since we were kids . We always studied in the same school and lived just a few blocks away from each other. Besides her ex girlfriend, I also encouraged him to audition for the X Factor. 

"Surprise! Did you miss me?" He hugged me tightly, his toned arms around my shoulder.

"You just scared the hell out of me Louis! How did you get inside my closet?" I hugged him back, returning the tightness of his embrace. He kinda carried me and swayed from side to side.

"I snuck in your room when you went out your room to grab a drink. "

"Wait, does Aunt Macy know you're here?"

"Yeah. She gave us the directions.  Me and the boys want to visit you.. Wait are you even happy to see me?" He let go of me and gave me that puppydog face. 

"Of course I am! I missed you so much!" I sat on my bed and Lou followed. "So how was the tour?"

"It was amazing. The fa-" We suddenly heard a phone ringing.

"I think that's mine" He searched for his phone in his pockets and grabbed it. "Hello Niall? You guys still waiting outside?"

"Wait, they're outside?" I gasped.


"Why didn't you let them in?"

"Apparently your room still has no place for the lads to hide in.."

"Oh yeah right. Hehe" I wiped my face to get the sweat and dirt off. "Well? Tell them to get in now!" I excitedly told Louis.

The doorbell rang. I hurried to the door and opened it.  Four boys were standing in front of me, all of them smiling.


"Cleo!" They greeted me in sync. I couldn't take my smile of my face. Me and my five best friends. Reunited after several months. Can this get any better? I flipping missed them very much.

"Wait can we take a picture first? This moment is too perfect I'll go get my camera.."

"Not until we get our hugs first!" Liam protested.

"Alright!" I sighed.

Each of the  boys' hugs were warm and big.. Except for Harry.

"Hey" Harry muttered. He reached out for my hand and kissed the back of it. He let go of my hand and chuckled. He was always romantic. I blushed.

"Don't you want a hug?" I asked, it's unfair if all the boys got a hug and.. He kissed my hand.

"Of course." He said jokingly. He pulled me close and gave me a hug. There's someone inside my head telling me not to let go from the hug. But if I won't let go, I am going to make this moment awkward. I chose to let go.

"Sooo... What brings you guys here?"  I asked.

"We're staying here in the US for a month." Liam said.

"Aaand we thought of visiting our little flower" Zayn added. Little flower. They always call me that.

"How about you go with us today, to the hotel we're staying in? " Harry asked.

"But.. I'm not even finished with my cleaning session."

"Oh c'mon, you can do that later." Louis whined.

"Okay, just give me thirty minutes. I need to fix myself." I gestured to my dirty clothes and messy hair. I let the boys sit on the couch while they wait.

I quickly walked to my room and searched for clothes to wear. I brought it with me in the bathroom and took a bath.

After that I dried my hair with my towel and changed into the clothes I picked.
