If There's One Thing I Wish...

Rachel Payne has just graduated high school, and her parents have a big surprise for her graduating. She's related to One Direction's Liam Payne and she's going to stay with him in London over the summer. She will take her friend and they will go on an adventure, filled with romance and drama. Thing is that Liam told all of the boys that they couldn't date her... And her ex-boyfriend is trying to win her back. And she thought this summer was going to be relaxing.


5. Our Secret, Not For Long

Rachel’s POV

The drama between Harry, Xavier, and Louis(and somehow Niall) faded away by the time my birthday came around.

It was a week until my birthday. I had been secretly dating Louis since the day we kissed. Liam had never found out and we hoped to keep it that way.


“We’re going to the cinemas together. Don’t tell Liam, Catherine,” I told Cat.

“I won’t! I’m going to, but with Harry. Liam will never know,” she replied, smiling and winking.

I went outside where Lou was waiting in the car. I sat in the passenger side and we took off. Lou turned up the volume to its max when the song, “One Thing” came on. He’s probably sung that song over 50 times in the last year, but he still enjoyed it. I sang along with him at the top of our lungs.

“Get out get out get out of my head,

And fall into my arms instead.

I don’t I don’t don’t know what it is,

But I need that one thing,

You’ve got that One Thing,” we sang in unison.

Louis’ POV

Her voice was beautiful. I had never heard her sing before, and I wondered, why hadn’t I? When the song ended, I turned the radio back down and we arrived at the cinemas. We got out and we held each other’s hand.

“What do you want to watch, love?” I asked.

“The Amazing Spider-man!!!” she squealed.

“Two tickets to The Amazing Spider-man please,” I told the lady at the ticket window.

I paid and grabbed the tickets. I took Rachel inside and bought a large popcorn and cherry slushy. We went and sat together as the movie began. We held hands the whole time. I would place popcorn in Rachel’s mouth and she would do the same to me.

After the movie, we got a refill of popcorn and I drove us back to Liam’s. We quietly walked into the house and Rachel ran to her room.

Rachel’s POV

I ran to the computer and turned it on quickly. I pulled up a fan fiction website about One Direction and started reading a story. Suddenly, Liam walked in and I stayed focused on the story, relaxing in the chair.

“What are you doing, love?” Liam asked.

“Reading some fan fiction online,” I replied.

“About who?”

“You guys. They’re really good. These should become movies,” I said, smiling.

“I’ll see if we have time for that.”

He walked out of the room and I walked over to my bed. I fell onto it and fell asleep.

Louis’ POV

When we walked in with popcorn, Niall immediately asked for some. And by some, I mean all of it. He sucked the popcorn down as if it was the last meal on earth.

I sat on the couch thinking. Thinking about what to get Rachel for her 18th birthday and what to do for her birthday. I was thinking a surprise party. She’d love that. And the planning started in that moment.


The plan had turned out perfect. She would be here with Cat in 3…2…1… SQUEAK! Went the door as they walked through.

“Surprise!!!” We all yelled as hopped from where we were hiding.

“You guys! You didn’t have to do this for me!”

“Yes we did,” I told her, walking up to her, and handing her present to her.

“More?” She questioned.

Rachel’s POV

I opened the box and inside was a silver locket and charm bracelet.

“It’s beautiful Lou!!!” I told him, leaping onto his precious neck.

He wrapped his arms around my waist and I heard Liam clearing his throat to yell at Lou for being touchy-feely. I separated from Boobear and we walked to where a beautiful cake laid on the kitchen table. It was “professionally” made by Harry. It was 3 layers deep and covered in purple icing, but not just any icing, whipped cream!!! I ran and gave Harry a gigantic hug.

“Thank you for the cake! It looks delicious!  Can we eat it now?!?!?!?!?”

“Of course, love,” Harry replied.

I grabbed a knife out of the drawer and cut out a slice and put it onto a plate. I turned around and looked at where I had set the slice and it was gone. I looked at Niall and he had the cake all over his face. I got another slice and I ate it myself, without the help of Niall. It was amazing! I loved Harry’s baking. I licked my lips and hugged Harry once again for my cake.

“We all have presents for you, love,” Zayn said, handing me his presents.

I opened it and inside was a mirror and makeup from Claires ™.

“I love it, Zayn,” I said, putting it on the table, picking up Niall’s present.

In Niall’s present, was sugar-coated popcorn.  It looked super good. I hoped Niall didn’t plan on eating it.

“Thanks Niall! It looks delish!!”

I then opened Liam’s present, which held a letter inside. What could it be? I thought. It was a contract for a movie!!! They wanted me to be the lead in the Forgive My Fins movie!!!

“I didn’t apply for anything!!! How did you get me the lead in that movie?!?”

“I’ve got people for that,” he said, winking at me.

“Thank you so much!!! I LOVE having you as a cousin!!! Wait—what about Julliard?”

“They said to take your time with the movie and come when you’re ready.”

“Thank you!!!!” I cheered, hugging his neck.

Harry handed me his present. It was their new album, which wouldn’t be coming out for at least 2 months!

“Thank you Harry! I’ll listen to it over and over again.”

I hugged him tightly, because I knew he didn’t give me an “amazing” present.

“Now open mine!!!” Cat squealed.

Inside was a scrapbook of our summer so far. It had pictures of me and Louis on our secret dates and all of us acting like goofballs. It was beautiful.

“What are those pictures of?!?! Have you and Lou been dating BEHIND MY BACK?!?!?!?!?!!?” Liam yelled.

I ran for Lou’s comforting, warm arms and Liam was yelling at us. I started crying. He was being way too harsh. Then he stopped. The tears streamed from my eyes.

“Rachel, what’s wrong?” he asked.

As if he didn’t know. I was crying for one reason, and one reason only.

“Don’t you realize we love each other?” I questioned.

“You’re way to hash for something as little as love.”

I sniffled and Louis started stroking my hair.

Louis’ POV

I stroked her hair as each one of her tears slowly slipped from her eyes. Liam was being too harsh on her.

“I forbid you two to see each other after you leave, Rachel.”

I held her in my arms and she cried and cried and cried. It was terrible what he said. We were forbidden to see each other from the end of the summer and so on. I knew we were going to secretly date anyways, but Liam needs to have a heart.

Finally, Rachel ran to her room crying. I wanted to punch the bloody hell out of Liam for treating her that way. It was her birthday, and he yelled in her face. He ruined her special day.
