Nobody Compares to You

Celia is just a normal 18 year old, she lives a normal life until her brother, Jackson, dies from cancer. She is never the same because he was her best friend. She decides that when she turns 19, she wants to move away from the little town in New Hampshire and pursue her dream as a photographer. She moves to London, England and meets five boys that almost fill the hole that was made when Jack died. Will she fall for one of the boys? Will one of them fall for her?


4. New Job and New Friends


I was happy I made a friend so quickly, he was really sweet. He said I was beautiful; nobody has ever called me beautiful except my family members. I hope I can hang out with him where we aren’t telling sad stories about ourselves. I think he will be a great friend to me; he seems like a caring person. I walk by a Rue 21 with a help wanted sign and went in. I love this store so it would be great to get a job here. I walk to the counter and ask the manager for a job. He didn’t even ask for a resume he just gave me a job, seeing as there was only one other worker. She had long strawberry blonde hair and bluish colored eyes. She wasn’t the tallest girl I’ve seen, but she wasn’t short either. I decided should get to know her.

“Hey, I’m Celia, I guess were going to be working together” I said, trying to be friendly.

“Hey I’m Payton.” She said with happiness. I smiled at her and we started telling eachother about ourselves.

“Where are you from?” she asked

“New Hampshire, in the U.S.” I answered

“No way?! Me too!” she said excitedly

“Wow! What a small world. So why did you move here?” I asked, actually curious.

“Well I wanted to get away from New Hampshire and go to college. I want to be either an actress or singer.

“That’s why I came! I’m going to the London Institute of Photography; it’s been my dream for a long time.”

“That’s cool. I like to take photos, but it’s not my dream” she said

“Yeah well I love dancing but I don’t think I’m good enough to make a career out of it.” I said doubting myself.

“I like you. You seem cool” she said with a smile.

“I like you too, wow, I’ve made two new friends today” I said gleefully

“Well that’s good, who else did you meet?” she asked

“I met Liam, you know, from One Direction” I admitted

“Really? You met him? That is so cool! I have always loved One Direction. Do you think I could meet him sometime?”

“Well, I guess if you want, we can all hang out together. But I don’t have his number so I’ll have to wait until I see him again.” I said

“That would be great! What is he like?” she asked hoping I would talk all about him.

“He’s really nice. He was upset when I met him though.” I probably shouldn’t tell her why. I wouldn’t want to lose the trust of a friend I made 3 hours ago.  

“Aww. Why?” she asked. Damn, I can’t tell her.

“Uhm, I don’t know if he’d want me to tell anyone”

“Oh, yeah I understand” she said

“Well, do you want to hang out? When does your shift end?” I asked her.

“I get off in like 10 minutes, so why don’t you meet me at Nando’s? It’s a restaurant on the end of the street” she directed me

“Yeah sure, see you soon.” I say as I walk back onto the sidewalk. I find my way to where Nando’s is and put my name in. Our table is ready and Payton walks in right on time. We get to our table and order drinks and appetizers. I get up to go to the restroom when I hear a familiar British voice behind me. I see him, my new friend Liam with four other boys and a girl. I walked over and tapped him on the shoulder.

“Hey Liam! I haven’t seen you in a while” I say laughing a little

“Oh Hey Celia! What have you been up to the past 3 hours?” he chuckles and someone clears throat across the table. He had brown hair that swished to the side. He looked a little older than me.

“Oh! Sorry lads! This is Celia. I met her at Starbucks earlier. Celia this is Louis” he said pointing at the one who cleared his throat “And his girlfriend Eleanor” they waved and Liam continued. “This is Niall and he is Irish” he says, talking about the blonde boy with a quiff. “This is Zayn; he is dating Perrie from Little Mix. He said gesturing towards the one with dark brown hair with a blonde streak. He is a very handsome boy, but I don’t think I would ever date him. I hear he’s kind of a womanizer. “And this is Harry.” He said pointing to the last boy. I look at his face. His cheeky smile, his curly hair, he reminds me of Jackson. A tear escape my eye and rolls down my cheek.

“Are you okay love?” Louis asks in a concerned voice.

“I’m okay it’s just…never mind. You wouldn’t get it.” I shut them out.

“It’s okay Celia, you can tell us” Liam comforts me

“Well. Harry, with his cheeky smile and his curls, he reminds me of my brother.”

“So?” Harry says indifferently.

“Hazza!” Liam raised his voice. Poor Payton is all alone while I talk to her favorite boy band. “Her brother died from cancer last year you idiot!” his voice gets louder

“I’m so sorry Celia, I didn’t mean to hurt you.” Harry apologizes

“It’s okay Harry, you didn’t know. I want you guys to meet someone.” I changed the subject quickly so they wouldn’t ask any questions. I bring Payton over to meet her idols.

“Oh my goodness! Hi!” she squealed

“Hi I’m…” Liam tries to say.

“I know who you are, I absolutely love you guys! Your music is fantastic!” she says a little calmer. She hugs them all, even Eleanor. She is calmed down and at this point we are all sitting together eating and talking. Except Niall, he scarfed down his food like it was going bad.

“Please excuse our little Nialler ladies. He is kind of a big eater.” Zayn Apologizes. We both chuckled lightly. Payton had been looking at Harry practically the whole time we were there, she fancys him, Harry had also been looking at her too. The way they look at each other was amazing because they just met a little while ago. There’s definitely some chemistry between those two. I looked over at Liam who was laughing at a joke Eleanor told him. He is very attractive, he has the most amazing eyes, and his smile is so cute. His hair looked so soft I wanted to touch it. What am I thinking?  Am I falling for him? Oh great.
