12. Surprise!

  Memories from my sister started to come flooding back, the tickle attacks, the driving lessons, the midnight games of chubby bunny and worst the crash.  I'm not sure how long I sat huddled in the bathroom, but after a little bit I heard a soft knock on the door.

            "Come in," I said quietly. I didn't need to look up to know who it was.  He didn't ask any questions, he just sat down next to me on the floor and hugged me.  I didn't try to hold back the tears, I just rested my head on his shoulder and softly sobbed as he rubbed circles on my back.  When I couldn't cry anymore I sat up rubbing at my puffy, red eyes. "Do you want to talk about it?" He said in a soothing voice. I shook my head, but after a few minutes I started anyways. "It was your sisters," I said trying to calm myself"Were they too rough, did they..." Suddenly it clicked in him. "Oh, the sisters part"

             I nodded, trying to stifle the sobs. I suddenly pulled myself together forcing myself to let no more tears out. I got up, not letting myself glance at my red face in the mirror and walked out of the bathroom.  Louis followed close behind. "Is your girlfriend okay?" Fizzy asked "Yeah, she's just been through something no one should ever have to experience" he responded, not caring that his sister had just called my his girlfriend.

My phone buzzed in my pocket. I pulled it out to see a text from Nikki: what time will you be over? :) 

            "Holy crap!" I said a little too loudly "what's the matter babe?" Louis asked "we're gonna be late to the party, and we still have to get a present!" "relax claire, text her your gonna be late, ill take u to the mall, and we will be at her house in an hour." "Okay" I responded following Louis out the door "bye!!" he shouted

           On the way to the mall I reapplied some mascara and tried to clean myself up. Nikki could always tell when I had been crying, she'd been one of the only people (Besides Syd) who was there for me, and she knew me just as well as I did.

           When we got to the mall I ran in a got a pair of regular red toms, to replace her crusty old ones.  I had them wrap them up in shiny red paper with a black bow.  Louis had stayed in the car, because we didn't want to bother with the fans because we were already late.  I raced back out to his car, and hopped in.

           "what'd you get her??" He asked curiously "Toms" I stated, "now drive!" "okay okay relax" I made sure to text Nikki telling her we would be there in about 20 minutes.  On the way there I explained to Louis how Nikki was In love with one direction.  She didn't know the band was coming to her party, so she was bound to freak out.  

           When we finally arrived at her house, I saw everyone else sitting behind a bush like I had told them. I didn't want them to go inside until everyone had gotten there, plus I wanted to see her reaction.  I shuffled up to the door and told the boys to hide until I gave them the signal.  I knocked on the door.

           "Claire!!!" She screamed opening the door wearing a bright strapless dress that had black trim around the bottom. " Happy birthday" I said handing her the present and pulling her into a hug. " I um hope you don't mind, I brought some guests" "sure that's ok," she answered, as long as its not Christina and Kate, I'm fine with it" "hey where's your mom?" She asked confused "you didn't drive did you??"
" hah no I didn't" I said " I'm still not ready"

             "did my bush just move?" She asked "oops" a sweet Irish accent said
"oh that's just one of my guests, you guys can come out now" I said , since they had been discovered. "wait how many people did you bring?" She said staring at me.
The boys crawled out from the bushes, "OH MY GOD YOU DIDN'T" she screamed hugging me. " I love you!"

            "Nikki you have to let go of me know so you can meet them." "Oh right" she said excitedly "Guys this is Nikki," I said, "and I'm pretty sure  she already knows who you are" I said sarcastically. “Oh shut up” Nikki says laughing at me, “come on in,”

             The moment we walked inside, I spot Sydney, her mouth falls open when she sees who I brought along, unfortunately  so do a bunch of other guests.  We are soon surrounded by guests who have just spotted the famous One Direction.  I glance at Liam concerned, he just nods at me, not seeming to mind the attention.

             “They should lose interest in us in about 15.” Louis whispered in my ear. “Ok, I’ll be right back,” I said following Nikki into the kitchen. “You could have told me they were coming,” she said. “Sorry, I wanted you to be surprised.” “Well you did a pretty good job of it.” she replied “Well go on now, get your butt out there and talk to Liam,” I urged. Then I added, “he’s now single...”

              Nikki’s eyes widened, “okay, I will, you’re the best!” She said hugging me once again and leaving the kitchen, as I followed close behind.  Just as Louis had said most of the guests had gone back to the party, except a few hanging around Louis, Zayn, Niall and Harry.  Nikki had gone over and started talking to Liam.  I spotted Niall looking quite bored, standing there so I walked over and grabbed his hand.
“There’s someone who I think you might like,” I said leading him over to Syd.

Niall this is Sydney, Sydney this is Niall.
