1. Chapter 1

AUTHOR'S NOTE: WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! I know the plot of this story is cliché. I wrote this when I was 16, which was back in 2012 and I was a really amateur writer back then. Just to let you all know this story was completed but I deleted the chapters and I'm editing them because when I wrote this story the last time, it was a mess. I had no idea what I was doing, I added tons of useless drama, and some chapters were short & made no sense so I decided to start over. Trust me, the story gets a little better as you get further on so please bear with me. I hope you enjoy this story. And if I make you cringe with this cliché plot then I apologize. 

 

 

Chapter 1

 

Mandy's POV

 

 

I sit up straight in my bed grabbing my chest, breathing heavily and tears rolling down my cheeks. I just had a nightmare.. again. This is the third time in a row that I had a nightmare about my dad. When I was 5, he died right in front of me and it's scarred me for life ever since then. I've been suffering with depression since I was 13, which was when the nightmares started. Every night, the dreams come back to me, even if I'm not thinking about it before I fall asleep. I have no idea why and how it happens. But thank god I was only dreaming, although it really happened 10 years ago. After I calmed down, I grab my water bottle from my bed side table and chug the whole thing. Water drips down my chin and caught in my throat. I quickly spit all the water out in my trashcan next to me bed and I start coughing.

 

I knew I should have slowed down while drinking that. I throw the bottle to the floor and lay back down. I wipe my tears and try to fall back to sleep. There must be something wrong with me. I don't think I'm supposed to be having nightmares this often. This isn't normal. But neither was my life, of course. I have no dad (well, I had a step dad, but he wasn't like a father to me at all. He abused me, my mom and Alicia but he abused our mother more. He's dead too, thank the lord), my mom has been an alcoholic since then, I have no boyfriend because last month I got dumped by my jackass boyfriend who treated me like shit and I only have 2 best friends. Nothing about me is normal. Hopefully that'll change though. Soon. Hopefully I'll get a new boyfriend in the near future who will love and take care of me. And with that thought I drift off into a, hopefully, peaceful sleep.

I awake again to the sound of my alarm clock blaring in my ear. Ugh, time to go to school. I reach and turn it off. I groggily sit up in my bed, trying to not remember about last night. I rub my eyes and swung my legs over the side of the bed and just sat there. I turn on my radio and that band is playing again. What is the band's name again.....One....? Oh yeah, it's One Direction. My friends are obsessed with them, sadly. Me personally, I never really liked them. I mean, they're okay and all but ever since they performed on the Today Show last year, almost every girl at my school have been obsessed with them since then, which is not me. I never really liked those popular boy bands, except for NSYNC back when I was 6 and 7.

 

But One Direction can not compare with NSYNC at all because they're not as good looking as them. After getting a shower, I get dressed into skinny jeans and a t-shirt from American Eagle and I start doing my hair and makeup. I really have to hurry because Julia, one of my best friends, is on her way to pick me up. Since I have no car and my mom can't drive me any where, having my best friends drive me places is my only option. Once I finished, I make my way downstairs and I find my 14 year old step sister Alicia watching TV in the kitchen. She's the only person in the whole house who is always there for me. We used to not get along but we sorted things out.

 

"Hey," I said as I sit down next to her.

 

"Hey," she replied. "Want some breakfast? Your mom is upstairs on a hang over....again, so I made something,"

 

"Nah, I'm good. Julia is going to be here any minute,"

 

Then, the doorbell rings repeatedly, so I'm guessing Julia is here. I say goodbye to Alicia before grabbing my bag and going out the door, where Julia is still ringing the door bell.

 

"Alright, alright. I'm out the door. What's your rush? School doesn't start until another hour," I groaned with annoyance.

 

"Did you read the rest of my text that I sent you earlier?" she asked.

 

I look at her with confusion. I don't remember her texting me, other than her telling me that she's on her way to pick me up for school. Or maybe she did and I guess I didn't read the rest of the text. Ehhh, whatever.

 

"No?" I replied.

 

"Well.....Megan and I won tickets and....."

 

"And what?" I asked.

 

"And the winner gets 3 meet and greets and front row seats,"

 

"That's nice,"

 

"But that's not all, you're coming to the concert with us,"

 

I look at her suspiciously.

 

"That depends. Who's concert is it?"

 

"It's to One Direction,"

 

I groan with annoyance and roll my eyes. Really? One Direction? I'm seriously not going to survive through a meet and greet and watching a concert with screaming 5 year olds who think they know everything about 5 guys from the UK. And second, why would do they love them anyway? They're not going to love you back, especially Louis and Harry (Yeah, I know their names from Julia and Megan) because they're obviously gay for each other. I've seen photos of Louis and his girlfriend, but really, she's just using him to hide his homosexuality. I'm serious, if I said that to the crowd at the concert, I'm going to get attacked real bad, but who cares anyway? It's true though.

 

"No! I'm not seeing One Erection in concert," I said once we got into the car.

 

"It's One Direction, Mandy," she said correcting me.

 

"Whatever,"

 

 I really don't want to go to that concert. I mean, they're not THAT bad, I guess. But still. She pleads me again, so I sigh and finally give in.

 

"Fine. When is the concert?"

 

"Next week," she replied.

 

I nod and we change the subject. I seriously do not want to go to that concert. Once we arrived at school, Julia and I walk inside and Megan is waiting for us by the door. They immediately start talking about the concert and I just walk behind them. I don’t join in their conversations about One Direction. That’s all they talk about together. I mean, they’re 16, why not talk about the new Twilight movie coming out? At least that’s better than One Direction.

 

“Do you guys ever talk about anything else other than One Direction?” I asked them.

 

“Yeah, sometimes,” Megan said.

 

“Well, not around me you don’t,” I exclaimed.

 

“That’s because we like to see if we’re annoying you,”

 

I roll my eyes. Yeah, you’re annoying me alright. Once we crossed the hallway, I hear the warning bell ring, which means homeroom starts in 15 minutes. Maybe this is my time to escape from their conversation!

 

“Hey, um, I need to go to meet with Mr. Reynoso to make up something for English. I’ll see you guys in Spanish,” I said.

 

“Okay, see ya,” Julia said.

 

Thank god. I finally got away from their conversation. I mean, I don’t blame them though; we used to do the same thing when we were in love with NSYNC. But that is a whole different story. I don’t know why Julia and Megan even want me to go to that concert. They know that I hate the band with passion. Maybe they want me to change my opinion about them, but that’s seriously not going to happen! I’m just gonna go and have fun. It’s not like I’m going to end up falling in love with any of them anyway.

 

 

 

Author's Note:

 

Thanks for reading :) I wrote this a long time ago on here back in 2012 but I'm starting over on it. As I said in the author's note above; I KNOW the plot is cliché but I wanted to edit it because I wanted to make it flow a little bit more. The old one had short chapters, incorrect grammar, and useless drama. It was a mess. So I thought cleaning it up would be best even though I wrote it when I was 16. Once again, I'm sorry for making you cringe with this cheesy plot but I really hope you bear with me and keep reading because it gets better further on in the story. 

 

And I know the boys were formed in 2010 but I'm pretending that got formed the year before that and got big in America by performing on the Today Show.
