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)

18. Why Harry?

It was everyone, wide awake, with decorations everywhere. They went through all this just to celebrate my birthday. And at 5 in the morning?

"Oh, gosh! Thanks guys!" I tell everyone, "But why celebrate at 5 in the morning?"

"Liam woke us all up a half an hour ago. He told us the plan of throwing a surprise party for you. So we got up, drank 10 cups of coffee, and got to work." Harry answered.

"Yeah, but I meant later this afternoon or after lunch." Niall corrected, "But in the morning, Liam what were you thinking?"

"You already woke me up with the screeching in your phone!"

"That was because he wasn't paying attention to the road and almost had us killed!" I scream.

"Okay!" Emma stops all the commotion. "Just be glad that we took liberty and went out and got you gifts."

"Awh, thanks. But you really didn't have to do it." I tell everyone.

"Yeah, but it was you and the blonde that brought all eleven of us together." Alexa informed. "And so, for that, we should celebrate you becoming an adult and that you are going to be eligable to vote for the next president."

I was going to reject at first, but Alexa made a good point. If I didn't trip, we wouldn't be here celebrating my 18th birthday at 5 in the morning. "Okay, I'll do it."

"Yaayyy!" Louis squels like a little girl.

I give him a weird look. "What?" He asks shrugging his shoulders.

"You...You're just weird." I answer. How am I dating him behind Niall's back? I think.

We walk into the living room and there are badly wrapped presents gathered around the table. "Apparently, we rushed with wrapping. It's your birthday, not christmas." Austin sasses.

"Watch your mouth, Houde!" Becca says.

"Fine. OPEN MINE FIRST! OPEN MINE FIRST!" He yells like an excited kid on christmas. I roll my eyes and pick up the nearest one. Austin cheers to himself, so I must have picked up his first. I unwrap the present and take out the compartments inside.

"Wow!" I held the one book I ever so wanted, Fault in Our Stars by John Green. "For a moment I thought you were going to get me dirt like last year, or a coupon book."

"Eh. You're 18, and you deserve a better gift then dirt."

"Well, thanks." I said and gave him a hug. I grab the next present. It was somewhat lightweight.

"That's mine." Harry says.

"I'm a little worried." I tell him and begin to open the package. I stare down at his present in disbelief. He got me...

"OH MY GOD HARRY! REALLY?!" Zayn screams. We all look at him.

"What?" Harry asks.

"YOU REALLY HAD TO GET THESE?!" I yell holding up the small packages. "YOU KNOW I'M NOT GOING TO DO....YEAH!"

We were silent for a minute. "Awkward." Dani said breaking the silence.

"Okay. If we're here for my birthday and I get those." Emma says pointing to what I'm holding, "I will throw them away."

"Well they can be useful for the future." Harry tells us.

They will. I thought, In the future.

 

*Author's note*
So I've been stuck on writing this story for a while, and I'm running out of ideas! And I still haven't gotten to where I wanted to be yet! This chapter took forever to write!

I haven't read Fault in Our Stars yet, but I really want to. I'm currently reading another one of John Green's works, Looking For Alaska.

Four day school week this week! and four basketball practices all this week (Made middle school basketball team! Yay me!).

That's all. Thanks for reading!!
