Right Here, Right Now

"Then I would take that star and make my wish come true."
My name is Olivia Carsons, and the past week has been pretty crazy for me. I met my favorite boy band, One Direction, I started dating Niall, and, well, too much happened. Even the worst thing, us finding out that my foster mother has cancer, has happened. But there is one thing that I fear. Niall and Louis, my childhood friend, still don't know that I promised to go with them to the Canfield Fair. If this can get any worse, what will happen if they find out? Does Louis have feelings for me? Do I have feelings for both of them? It all depends on what happens at the fair. (Second installment of The Start of Something New trilogy)


11. COD and kareoke

<Olivia POV>

He kissed me. How could he do that? He obviously knows that I'm dating Niall. This can't be happening. Can't we just stop this tape and rewind back to a minute or two ago?

Finally, he pulled back and I just stood there, starring into his grayish eyes. Ugh, why does he have to be hotter than he was when I was in first grade?

"Why did you do that?" I ask with a bit of anger in my voice.

"You know the dare that I had to do? The one were I had to wear a shirt that says 'Free Hugs'?"

"What did that have to do with the fact is that you just kissed me when I'm dating your best friend!!" I yell.

"I kissed you before! Twice!"

"That was before me and Niall started dating!"

(A/N: The italicized words are what Olivia was thinking. The quotations are what they are saying.)

"The fact was that the dare wasn't Harry's original one!" Where is this arguement going?

"What was his original dare for you?!" This is going nowhere.

"He wanted me to kiss you in front of everyone! Including Niall!" Now it got back on track, sort of.

"Wh...why would he do that?" Like that isn't prominent.

"He knows that I have feelings for you! He also thinks that you have feelings for me too!" Which I sort of do.

"Which I do!" Both my hands cover my mouth. Did that just come out of your mouth?! How could you say that, Livvy? I thought. "Did I just say that?" I ask.

Louis nods. "Look, yes I do have feelings for you. But I can't just tell everyone that I love you and Niall. Then I will have to choose one of you two, and one will be heart-broken, and I don't want that to happen." I say.

"How about this." He starts. What's he going to say? "You still keep dating Niall, and how about we have one of those secret relationships. Like the ones in those movies."

"I see where you're going. But not one of those relationships like the one Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis had in 'Friends With Benefits'."

"Nah. You're still too young." He states. "But it was a good movie."

"Yeah. It was." I reply. "But I'll do a secret relationship with you. We should go downstairs." Like that, we leave his room as "friends", and head downstairs. When we enter the living room, we see Zayn and Rebecca playing COD.

"YOU CHEATED!" Zayn yells.

"NO I DIDN'T I HAVE AN OLDER BROTHER! AND HE'S IN COLLEGE!" Becca shouts. She's pretty good at COD. She learned how to play from her older brother, Nick, whenever he visited. I start laughing. "Well, look who's back." She states when she sees us.

"Alright." Louis says gesturing his arms in some weird way like he's making a grand entrance. "Now it's time for Nialler and the king of COD to battle." He sounds like the king of dorks other than the king of a video game. "Winner wins the hand of the fair maiden." He says pointing to me.

"This isn't the Renaissance, Sir Weirdo. Just start this game." Alexa says. After too many rounds of COD, we called it a draw.

"This game shalt not be over until one of thy wins." Niall says.

"I'm sorry. Is it the 14th century here? Do I see King Aurther or Lancelot? No. Now let's do something else besides sit here and watch you two play video games." Emma says getting up and stretching.

"We have kareoke." Liam offers. He puts his arm over Danielle's shoulder and does that cheezy guy move.

"We can do that." Dani says.

"Harry, pull out the machine. Kareoke contest!" Zayn says as Harry pulls out the kareoke machine on the back porch. He sets up a mic stand, places a mic on it, and turns on the machine.

"So what songs can it play?" I ask.

"Everything. From the King of Pop to Brad Paisely to us." Harry answers. "Who wants to go first?"

Alexa raises her hand and steps onto the porch/stage. She sung "Hell on Heels" by Pistol Annies. That was the song I was going to do. She sung like a country singer. Then Austin steps up to sing "Burnin Up" by the Jonas Brothers. Harry decides to sing "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder, aka, his Xfactor audition song. Becca and Emma decide to sing a duet to "Lollipop" by Mika. Louis sings "Black and Gold" by Sam Sparro, Niall sings "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney, Danielle sings "Impossible" by Shontelle, and Liam sings "She Will Be Loved" by Maroon 5.

"Olivia, it's your turn." Emma says to me.

"What?" I ask. I must have dozed off. I walk up to the porch and put in the song I'm going to sing. I normally sing in the shower, but this is different. The music starts playing and I start to sing.

"Dry lightning cracks across the sky.
Those storm clouds gather in her eyes.
Her daddy was a mean old mister,
Momma was an angel in the ground.
The weatherman called for a twister,
She said 'Just blow it down'.
There's not enough rain in Oklahoma
To wash the sins out of that house.
There's not enough wind in Oklahoma
To rip the nails out of the past.
Shatter every windows till it's all blown away.
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away.
Till there's nothing left standing. Nothing left of yesterday.
Every tear-soaked, whiskey memory blown away.
Blown away."

When the song finished, I set the mic on the stand, and sat back down. Everyone looked at me.

"We didn't know that all of you guys can sing." Harry says.

"We try. Singing is one of our many past times." I state.

"Well, you did really good." Niall tells me and kisses my lips. I blush. Danielle's idea might not be so bad after all.
