That Boy

Niall comes into Rachel's life as if by miracle. He gets shipped off to America to continue his education since he never finished and ends up falling for her during his stay in the States.


3. Homesick

Niall's P.O.V.

It was a great first day at school and Rachel was really a great tour guide and we had 5/7 classes together!

I was at my locker when she asked if I wanted a ride home.

"Umm... actually I don't live here. My mum is staying with my uncle and when she dropped me off at school this morning, she said she wouldn't be back until later tonight." I said. 

"Well do you want to come to my house until she comes back? We could study our lines for drama." She says to me.

"Okay, sure!" I was pretty nervous, since Rachel is the first American girl I've ever really met.

When we get to her house, I take a look around her house while she went to the bathroom. I can't believe she sings in a band, too! I need to find out more about her. When she comes back, I ask her "Are you in a band?"

"Yeah, Streets Filled With Talent.." She responds.

"Do you play anything, or do you just sing?" I keep questioning her.

"I play guitar and I sing... but lately I've been stuck on guitar while my friend, Jessica, gets all the lead vocals. I mean I love her to death, but sometimes it can get really annoying. For example, I used to sing ABC -you know, by the Jackson 5- by myself and I was perfectly fine, because I got my only solo song on our set list and then one day she was told to sing it with me. Then in We Are Young -by Fun-, I got to sing a part by myself, and then Jessica was assigned to sing it with me... again. And the most recent time was when we just started learning Some Nights -by Fun- our manager asked who wanted to sing it. Me, our co-bass player, and Jessica raised our hands to volunteer as the main singer for that song. Our manager looked at all 3 of us but said 'Okay, Jessica come over here. Learn these lyrics by next week and we'll be good to go.' I'm getting sick and tired of this. We're about to start learning Livin' On A Prayer -by Bon Jovi- and I really want to sing this one." She looked at me and sighed. I could tell she was disappointed.

"I know how you feel. When we were recording Up All Night, Harry was always being called into the recording booth to sing the lead in everything. Then it was Liam, then Zayn. Me and Louis were just sitting there with a false smile on our faces waiting patiently for our turn to sing our line." I say.

Wow. I haven't even known this girl for 24 hours and yet I feel like I've known her for months already. We really just... click.

"Let's get to work on memorizing the script for drama." Rachel says to change the subject.

"Alright. Where should we start?"

"Uhh let's start on page 24, line 17."

"I start, right?" I was used to memorizing lyrics, not speeches. "Amanda, I can't stop myself from being around you. We've only known each other for a week, but I feel like it's been a year. I don't want this moment to end."

"But Sean, I'm not ready for a relationship. Maybe in a few months... you know I just broke up with Josh." She's a natural at this. I wish I could act.

"I know, but Mandy. I... I think I'm falling in love with you." I look into Rachel's eyes to see that she was staring back at me. She looked starstruck. I suddenly thought of the boys. I felt a lump in my throat. My eyes started getting slightly teary. But no. I can't be homesick. This is only my first month in America and I've been away from home plenty of times before, but maybe it's because I'm not used to being away from Harry, Liam, Louis, and Zayn...

"Can we take a quick break?" I ask. "I need some water." 

"Sure, the kitchen is just around the corner." Rachel said.

I don't know what came over me. I feel like crying. It's only 5:30, and I feel sick . I need to call home. Now.
