Too Close ~ (One Direction Not Famous)

Sophie and Niall have been best friends for years. But at the start of year 11, Sophie sees something different in him. Not only must Sophie cope with her own runaway feelings but she also has to try to keep up with the crazy lives of her other friends.

Will anything ever be simple?


2. Hello, Goodbye


Since when had Niall been so hot? He had always been cute in a goofy kind of way. But hot?

                I realised my mouth was hanging open  so I snapped it shut hoping he hadn’t seen my shameless gawping. “Hey Sophie!” he said cheerfully. “Long time no see”. Hearing his gorgeous accent again just made me realise how much I had missed him.

                “Niall!” I shrieked before practically running at him and throwing my arms around him. I felt his arms wrap around me, pulling me into one of his perfect hugs. “How’re you doing?” he asked me as we pulled apart and set of down the road to school. “Well I was great…. Until I saw you” I joked, playfully shoving him. “Well then” he said, mock hurt colouring his voice, “I will take my dashing good looks and sparkling personality somewhere they will be appreciated” and he stormed off, head in the air.

                “Niall come back you idiot!”  I giggled. “You know I was only joking”.  “Of course I did” he replied, re-appearing at my side. “I really missed you Soph” he said, his face becoming more serious. “Aww I missed you too” I replied. As we walked he put his arm around me and kissed my head. There was nothing unusual about this, we always acted that way. But this time it felt different, there was a flash of fluttering in my stomach. Ugh pull yourself together Sophie! He is practically your brother!

                In an attempt to focus my wandering mind, I commented on his new hair. It had become blonder and he had styled it differently….. It really did make him look even more gorgeous. Shut up brain! You are only thinking like this because you haven’t seen him in so long.

                “So Soph, I actually have something to tell you…”. “Yup” I replied, still trying to talk sense in to my confused mind. “Well when I was in Ireland, we went out into town and we ran into….”.

                “SOPHIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”. He was cut off by a high pitched squeal. I span round and was confronted by an overly-excited Anna, hurtling towards us before nearly knocking me over as she pulled me into a rib-cracking hug.

“Woah woah woah! Anna ease off a bit, I do need to breathe you know”.

“Sorry Soph I just felt like a huge hug was appropriate seeing as we hadn’t seen each other in ages!”

“We saw each other last week” I laughed. Anna did have the tendency to exaggerate.

“I know but I missed

“I know but I missed you” she cried.

“Oh I missed you too” I said, hugging her again.

“Yo Anna!” came a voice from behind me.

“Hey Niall” she replied.

“Listen Soph, I need to go. Catch you later yeah?”. With this e walked off, looking distracted. I watched him go until his blonde head was swallowed by the sea of students, flooding in through the school gates.

“Erm Sophie?” Anna interrupted my chain of thought. I whipped my head back to see Anna looking at me, stifling a laugh.

                “What?” I demanded, thoroughly bemused by what she found so amusing.

“You are kind of staring after Niall… with your mouth open”.

“Am not!”.

“You so are! Do I detect a little crush?”, she raised her eyebrows.

“Don’t be stupid… He is… I mean… It’s just”.

“Whatever you say” Anna said, not sounding entirely convinced.

“Ughh you can be so annoying sometimes!” I cried in exasperation.

“But you love me for it!” She replied. “Now come on, let’s go find the others, Alice said she had something to tell us”.

“Oh yeah I got that text too” I remembered. We headed towards the school building, guessing at what Alice’s news was”.
