Chasing Dreams -Niall and Harry fanfiction

Caroline Richards. She is rich, gorgeous, but also, she's very sweet. The opposite of what you'd expect from a girl that lives in a mansion with just two other people, right? She's 19 years old, by the way. Anyways, Caroline starts getting bored of the slow life in America, so she decides to move to London, the place she'd always dreamed of living in. She was a big time model, and had the money, so she set off to chase her dreams. Little does she know, that one day in London, would change her life.


17. Meet the parents!


We stepped out of the cab in front of a... MASSIVE mansion.

"Is this the place?" I asked in disbelief.

"Yeah? Why wouldn't it be?" Cara looked at me confused.

"Oh.. nothing.." I replied as we walked up the long walkway.



Why didn't Niall believe that this was my house? I mean, he's already seen my place in London. So obviously this one is going to be bigger...

I took in a deep breath before knocking on the door. I didn't realize how much I missed home until now. I mean, I grew up in this house, I had all of my birthday parties in this house, and best of all... All of my memories in this house. The good and bad! I guess it was just the 'Teenage Syndrome' that was telling me to move to London. But then again, if I hadn't moved.. I never would have met my Nialler! I blushed and grinned widely at the thought of him. He was so perfect! Wait, is he cringing? His face had gone a little bit pale, I started worrying.

"Are you okay babe?" I asked, turning to face him.

"Oh yes, I'm fine!" He said smiling. I could tell that he wasn't though.

"Welcome to the Richards home!" Mr. Guffig, our butler, answered the door. I sighed, I guess I would get it out of Niall later. Then, I turned to Mr. Guffig.

"GUFFY!!!!" I screamed and ran up to hug him. The look on his face was priceless as he screeched and started running down the hallway. You see, ever since I was a child, Guffy had always been there for me. He is an old man now, but he's so adorable! I consider him my grandfather, since I've never actually met my real one. Anyway, well... I always yell Guffy's name really loud, and attack him when I see him after being gone for a long time. So this time, I guess he knew what was going to happen.

"You shall never take me alive little Carry!!!" He screeched from down the hall. His nickname for me is Carry, because everyone else calls me Cara, and he wanted his own name for me I guess.

"Ugh, fine! You win this time Guff. But I'll be sure to get you next time!!" I yelled, then turned back to the boys. Their eyes were bulging out of their sockets, and their mouths were hung in O's.

"What? You've never seen a girl and her butler/grandfather before?" I asked, a tad bit annoyed.

"Well... No!" Niall said, regaining his composure. Just as he replied, my mom, dad, and Jewels walked in.

"Mom!! Dad!!" I exclaimed, hugging them tightly.

"I...can't...breathe!!" Wheezed my father.

"Oops... sorry.." I giggled, and heard the boys and Jewels stifle a laugh behind me. I took that moment to shoot them a glare. Then, I straightened myself out and turned to them.

"Mom, dad, meet One Direction!" I said in a regal voice.

"Hello Mr. and Mrs. Richards!" They all sang in unison, which made Jewels and I giggle.

"Well hello boys, you all seem like rather good lads!" My father chuckled.

"So... have any of you boys..." Mom started talking. I immediately blushed, knowing where this was going. Mom was going to ask if they fancied my sis or I. Not.Happening. That would be so utterly embarrassing! I can't even count how many times she's done that to me before! I cleared my throat, interrupting her mid-sentence. She glared at me for a split second, then recovered quickly.

"How about everyone goes and sits in the first living room while I go make some tea, yah?"

After a couple of 'Yes ma'am's' and 'Thank you's' we went to the living room. There were a total of two couches and two beanbag chairs. So we all sat. My father and Liam each sat in a beanbag chair. Harry, Jewels, and Louis sat on one of the couches, and Zayn, Niall, and I sat on the other couch. Mom came in a few minutes later with a large tray of tea, and pulled over a rocking chair to sit in.

"Alright, now that everyone is settled in, let's get to chatting!" She said joyfully. Mom had always loved having guests over. She would basically interview them from top to bottom! I'm pretty sure she would asks the boys more questions then anyone else though, since they were famous and all.

Everyone started their own little conversations within the room. Dad, Liam, and Zayn were talking about phones. Harry and Jewels were in a deep conversation, but were whispering, so I couldn't hear any of it. I stifled a laugh when I heard mom and Louis talking about carrots. It's so funny how much Louis likes carrots, and a bit shocking that by chance, my mom was obsessed with them too! So they were talking about how to grow them, and how delicious they tasted. I rolled my eyes and laughed.

"Babe, are we going to tell your parents?" The hairs on my neck prickled at the feeling of Niall's warm breath.

"Tell them what?" I already knew what he meant, but I wanted to hear him say it.

"That you're my girlfriend of course!" He laughed in my ear. I couldn't help but blush and smile.

Everyone turned to us, talk about awkward...

"Aw, little Cara's blushing!" Harry laughed, obviously getting me back for earlier. I glared at him, which just resulted in him laughing even harder. I rolled my eyes.

"Spill!" My mom's voice rang through the room. I laughed and started blushing, thinking about what I was going to say. Then, my little Irish boy's voice cut through the air.

"Mr. and Mrs. Richards, your daughter, Cara, is my girlfriend." Niall grinned from ear to ear. I couldn't help but smile... and blush even more. I had always been the one to tell my parents when I was dating someone. They had never spoken for themselves before! To be honest, Niall took me completely by surprise, and my parents looked quite taken aback too!

"Wow, Niall... To put it simply, I wouldn't mind if you asked to marry her!" Dad laughed. I started blushing even more, and I could see Niall's cheeks getting warm too. Everyone's eyes were on us.

"I mean... No boy that has ever stepped foot in this house, has ever had the courage to tell us they were dating our daughter! You are the first in her 19 years of life!" He continued.

"It's true! I'm shocked, and so happy!" Mom cut in.

I'm glad I met Niall. I'm happy I moved to London. Life is perfect. I wish it could stay perfect like this forever. I smiled at what my parents said. It made me feel even happier that they approved of him. Especially that they actually like him! That's a first! I looked at my little Irish boy, he was flawless, and it made me smile even more.

"Well... I think we should all head off to bed now. Everyone, Mr. Guffig will show you to your rooms! Cara and Jewels, you obviously know where yours are." Mom said, pulling me out of my thoughts.

Everyone said goodnight, and we walked upstairs. I grabbed Niall's hand.

"Babe, you can just stay with me!" I said as I lead him to my room.

"Um... okay..." He replied, unsure.

"Oh no! Nothing like that! Err... I meant... Just stay the night... Not... that...." I blushed.

"Don't worry babe, that wasn't what I was thinking!" He laughed. "I was worrying about what your parents would think!"

"Niall... they won't care! Haha!" I laughed, and we slipped into my room.

We both laid under the warm covers, and I had my head on his chest. I could feel his heartbeat, and it was so soothing, I felt my eyes drooping.

"Goodnight Nialler," I whispered.

"Goodnight my little cherry pie," He whispered back.

I heard a faint 'I love you' as I drifted off, but I wasn't sure if it was Niall or the wind. I fell into the best sleep in my entire life. No stress, no worries.
