Age Is Just A Number

This book is basically about a 15 year old girl named Ski (Pronounced Sky) who has a passion for photography. It's basically her life. Her dad happens to be best friends with One Direction's body guard, Paul. When Paul has a conversation about One Direction needing a new photographer, Ski's dad recommended her and she is now One Direction's new photographer. Problem is her dad didn't tell her that she would be working with the famous One Direction, just a popular band and she hates One Direction. A lot.

Would she fall for one of the boys? And if she did, would her age, being just 15, stop her from loving him?

Based on the title of my book what is your opinion. Is age just a number when it comes to love?


11. Which One?

We wrrived home in less than ten minutes. It was pretty warm  outside by now and I was sweating from this tight dress.

Harry opened the door and we were greeted by four worried faces.

"Ski!" Zayn said getting up. He immediatly stopped and stared at mine and Harry's position.

"Are you two a thing?" he asked.

"Yup." Harry said dropping me from his back. Zayn frowned at Harry but when he looked at me he had a sad emotion in his eyes.

"Look Ski, I'm so sorr-" he started but I quickly shut him up with a big hug. It brought a smile to my face when he hugged back but much harder. I knew Zayn cared about me and that's why I love him so much. He's like a big brother to me.

"Hey guys, it's too gloomy here, how about we go to the amusement park!" Niall said jumping up from his position on the couch. Everyone seemed to nod their heads up and down in agreement.

"Wanna go babe?" he asked taking my hand. I nodded while smiling. This was going to be fun.


We arrived at the theme park an hour later. We got out and it was burning hot outside. The boys wore t-shirts and shorts except Niall who wore a tank top instead.

Once we started walking toward the theme park Harry grabbed my hand. It was warm which gave me butterflies. It quickly ended when Niall came between us breaking up our grasp.

"You guys can't show affection in public, remember?" he said through a smile. Harry frowned but nodded in understandment.

"And the way to make sure you guys don't do it is by Ski spending time with me." Harry started to protest but Niall already grabbed my arm and led me away from the group. Even though none of them chased us, we still kept running.

"Niall, can we slow down please." I asked slowing down. I was out of breath. We already were inside the park and there were tons of people everywhere.

"Here, let me help." he crouched down in front of me.

Did he want me to get on his back? Should I or should I not? Wouldn't be weird if I got on my boyfriend's hot friends back? Wait, no Ski. Niall is not hot. Stay away.

I brushed off the random thoughts in my head and jumped on his back. He instantly got up like nothing. H was so strong. With my weight on top of his, his muscles bulged out making me melt at his strongness.

"Here, take a picture of us." he said lifting me up higher.

I took the camera off my neck and held it out in front of us. We smiled for the first picture


We did a picture of us having our tongues out and us doing the duck face.


"You want me to take a picture for you two?" an elderly woman walked up with a gentle smile on her face. I guess I could trust her considered there's a one to one hundered percent chance she's a robber.

"Sure, that would be great! Thanks ma'am." I jumped off Niall's back and came to his side. He put an arm around my waist and smiled at the lady. I relaxed myself and put on my best smile.

We took a few more pictures but my favorite was of me doing bunny ears to him. After we took that picture I've noticed that he had bunny ears up to my head also.

"Hey!" I said punching him playfully in his chest. He laughed which was loud but so adorable. Omg, stop it Ski.

"Hey sonny, kiss her on the cheek." the old lady urged.

"Oh no no no," I protested, "I have a boyfriend."

Apparently she didn't care cause she kept on nagging. "Just on the cheek?" she put on a puppy dog face and pleaded. FINE! I'll do anything to shut this old lady up!

"Fine." I said as politely as I could. I looked over at Niall to see him with a shocked expression on his face.

He slowly came over and leaned to me. Lightly, his lips touched my cheek running shivers down my body. I pretended to be shocked and put a shocked expression on, holding my hand to my mouth.


Finally, that was over. The old lady left and we it was silent between Niall and I as we kept walking toward the direction of the rides.

"We're here." he quietly said. I looked up at a huge sign that said 'THE MONSTER' in oozy green letters. I guess this ride will get my mind off things.

Five minutes into the waiting line the awkwardness settled upon us. I was about to talk to him about the small kiss back there but suddenly a group of screaming girls ran up to him.

"OMG YOU'RE NIALL HORAN!" a girl screamed. Thank goodness for Directioners. They all stared at me with weird faces as if I was the mascot for this ride.

"Do ya guys want pictures?" he asked with a sigh but tried his best to smile.

"OMG YES!" they screamed with excitement which got really annoying.

He took lots of photos with them and almost lost his spot in line. I had to convince the couple behind us that he was with me and not skipping. The girls followed him of course.

He signed their shirts and anything else he could sign. One girl even asked him to sign her boob. Like ew. I giggled when she asked because these directioners are really crazy. The girl gave me a dirty look but I just returned my best smile which pissed her off.

Finally the girls left squealing with all their Niall Horan signed stuff. When he finally came back into line, I saw in the corner of my eye that he kept opening his mouth to speak but kept shutting it . I was getting nervous everytime he would open his mouth.

"Listen, Ski, I'm sorr-" he started but I held up my hand to stop him from talking.

"No, it's not, it's mine Niall, I shouldn't have told her yes. I knew I had a boyfriend but still decided to let you kiss me on the cheek, I'm sorry.."

Surprisingly, he didn't argue back or even agree like I thought he would have but instead he grabbed my hand and held it. My heart skipped a beat and I gulped. A few butterflies formed into my stomach and flew around like it was their last day to live. Wait, Ski, you shouldn't feel this way about him, you have a boyfriend, remember?

"But the thing is Ski, I was glad she asked..."

Through this whole conversation I was looking out in the distance but now my eyes were locked on his. No no no, this cannot happen again. Not in the same week. I can't mess up.

I pulled my hand away from him, a little too quickly because his face was quickly filled with disappointment, sadness, and mostly regret. I couldn't stand to see his face like this. I looked down at the ground almost wanting to burst in tears.

"How many people?" I didn't even notice we were about to board the ride. I had to get away now.

"Just one." with that I ran out of line and toward the emergency exit door.

I heard Niall call my name but I just had to keep running. It seems that that's what I do best. Run.



I got a text from Zayn saying to meet them at this restaurant called Double Stackers. I asked an employee for directions and apparently I was already heading in the right direction.

I arrived and saw everyone was at the table. Even Niall. With just my luck, there was only one seat left. Between Harry and Niall. Perfect.

"Ayee, Ski!" I heard Liam yell.

I slowly walked over to them and sat down.

"How was the monster Ski?" Louis asked while shoving fries, or chips as they call him here, into his mouth.


"She had so much fun but she had her eyes closed the whole time." Niall said not looking in my direction. Why is he covering up for me?

I guess my face was full of different emotions because I felt a warm hand over mine and instantly recognized it. Harry. I looked toward him and his face read worried and the Are-You-Okay look. I showed a small smile but he saw through it.

"What's wrong." he asked catching everyone else's attention as well.

"Oh nothing, I'm just tired and shook up from all these rides." I said lying straight through my teeth.

Harry could still tell that that wasn't the reason that I had mixed emotions. He leaned over and whispered into my ear which made it tickle,

"Well if this makes you feel better, I can't wait to get out of sight so I could kiss you. I've been waiting all day." he said.

I smiled but inside I frowned. How could I kiss him knowing that I let his best friend kiss me on the cheek. I know I might be overreacting but still, this is big especially when you're a celebrity.

I guess my smile convinced him enough because he turned back toward the table conversation.

"Come on guys, it's getting late." Liam said getting up.

This is the time to finally talk to Niall. He was the last one to get up so I slowed down to catch him.

"What're you doing babe?" Harry said frowning.

"Oh, I have to quickly talk to Niall." I said. He looked back at Niall and frowned but nodded. He looked around and quickly pecked me on the lips. His warm lips made me smile.

"What do you want?"

I whirled around to find a Niall with his arm crossed.

"Look, I shouldn't have ran away like that, I'm sorry. It's just a lot to take when you're only fifteen dating an eighteen year old and having his best friend who's nineteen kiss you cheek."

He looked as if he was in deep thought. "Look Ski, I should have helped you and told the lady to not push because you're dating but I couldn't find the will to do it," I as going to say it wasn't his fault but he kept talking.

"Ski, when you first walked into our room, I thought you were so beautiful but of course, Harry called dibs on you first so I had to back off." Now I understood why Niall didn't stop her. He liked me just as much as Harry did.

"Niall..." I said laying a hand on his cheek.

"Ski, don't... You're making me want to kiss you so hard right now." he said breathing deeply.

I quickly pulled my hand away and backed up. How am I suppose to be friends with Niall if everything I do makes him want to kiss me.

"Let's just go." I said careful not to make any contact with him.

"But Ski, earlier today, nothing happened." he said.

"Agreed." I said hooking my arm with his. I knew this was a bad idea but we both have to try to work on it.

I smiled as I watched inhale deeply. "What? Do you want to kiss me so hard right now?" I said. I guess I could use this to tease him now.

I looked up at him and bite my lip. I bet this killed him.

"Psh, now I just want to rip your freaking clothes off."

I punched him in the arm and ran off to find the others. Of course he followed. Hopefully, I can pretend that nothing ever happened today. Just Harry asked me out and nothing else.
