Mama Tells Me I'm Special...

Janelle is a special teenager. She's anorexic, bulimic, suicidal, and bi-polar. When she tries to escape from it all, she sits in her room, listens to One Direction and calls her best friends Kimberly and Karina for help. For her 17th birthday, she ends up in the hospital and her mother surprises her with the boys of One Direction.


8. Merry Early Christmas?

***Janelle's POV***

I stretched my arms over my head. My phone started to buzz. I picked up my phone.

"Hello." I groaned into the phone.

"MERRY CHRISTMAS!" I heard the boys shout into the phone.

"It's not-"

"We're leaving in 2 days. We won't see you, Karina or Kimberly for Christmas." Harry said, slyly.

"Oh... Right." I bit my lip. 

"So, come over at like 7?" Liam asked me.

"Sure." I hung up. I called Karina and Kimberly on 3 way. "Be here in 1 hour,we have shopping to do." I told them.

"Why?" Karina asked.

"We have to get the boys Christmas presents." I said.

"Um, okay. See ya!" Kimberly said. I hung up and walked into my bathroom. I took a quick shower and brushed my teeth. I slipped into my underwear. I combed my damp hair and slid into a pair of black skinny jeans. I slipped into a white button down and slipped on my caramel Uggs. I put on my army green parka. I heard my doorbell ring and I ran downstairs. I kissed my mom on the cheek.

"I'm going shopping with the girls. I'll be back soon okay?" I told her. She nodded. I ran out the door and hugged Kimberly and Karina. I got into Karina's car. I sat in the front with Karina and Kimberly sat in the back.

"Janelle..." Karina looked at me. She sounded concerned.

"Yeah?" I gave her a weird look.

"We think.. you know. We feel like your getting better-"

"Cause of Niall." Kimberly cut her off.

"We're really scared that when he leaves... your going to get worse again." Karina put her hand ontop of mine.

"Guys... I'm fine. I mean it." I told them.

"You are now Janelle, but what if something happens with Niall? What if things don't work out Janelle?" Kimberly ran her thumb over my shoulder. I pulled away from them.

"I'm fine! What if things don't work out with Harry Kimberly? Are you going to be upset?! What about you and Louis Karina?! You guys are treating me like I'm a fucking child. I'll be fine!" I yelled at them.

"The difference between us with Harry and Louis is that.. we're not with them. Yeah I like Harry... A lot. Karina like Louis... A lot. But you're actually dating Niall Janelle. We don't have our hopes up. We don't expect everything to be okay." Kimberly spoke softly.

"What the hell is that suppose to mean? That Niall's going to cheat on me or break my heart? He's not like that." I spat at her. The car stopped.

"We're sorry alright, relax. We're just... worried okay?" Karina bit her lip, I nodded.

"Don't be. I'm fine." I opened the door and climbed out of Karina's car. We walked into the mall. We made our way towards Armani Exchange. I felt like people were taking pictures of me. Did people already know that me and Niall were dating? What the hell.. I opened the door to the store. I examined the guy section. Nothing really looked... nice. I picked up a simple white shirt. I looked at the price tag. 80$?! I cocked my eyebrows and put the shirt down. "This is expensive." I pulled Kimberly and Karina out of the store.


We walked out the mall with tons of bags in our hands. We placed the bags neatly in Karina's trunk. I got into the front seat. Karina started the car. My phone began to ring.


"Hey babe, where are you?" Niall asked me.

"The mall."

"Oh, what did you buy?" He asked.

"A dress for tonight." I lied.

"Oh, okay. I miss you." He spoke softly.

"I miss you too." I giggled. From the corner of my eye I swear I saw Karina and Kimberly winking.

"I can't wait to rip that dress off of you.... I-I... I mean see you." I heard him cuss under his breath.

"You're so cute. I'll see you soon babe, bye. Muah!" I hung up. I turned to Kimberly and Karina. "I think he wants to have sex." I told them. Their eyes widened.

"Not yet! Wait till the night before they leave." Kimberly told me.

"Yeah!" Karina added. I nodded.

"Do i have to buy lingerie?" I asked them. The smirked at me. "Oh god." I mentally face palmed myself.


I slipped into a black dress that had a lace printed bottom. I curled parts of my hair and created a simple waterfall braid going around my head. I put on a minimal amount of eye shadow and put on a thick line of eyeliner that had wings at the corners. I put on burgundy velvet heels and slipped into my beige trench coat. ( I went downstairs.

"Mommy, I'm going to the boys hotel for this early Christmas thingy. I'm going to be home late so... can you please tell Ms.Lissauer not to come tomorrow?" I begged. She sighed.

"I'll let her know. Be careful Janelle. Please." She kissed my forehead. I nodded.

I'm outside babe. Niall texted me. I walked outside. Niall opened the car door for me.

"You look... stunning." He pressed his lips against my cheek softly.

"Thank you, you look handsome aswell." I smiled and got into the car. He walked around the front and got in aswell. The engine roared and he pulled out of my driveway. His fingers were entwined with mine. Moments later, the car stopped at the hotel. I got out and we took the elevator up to the 45th floor. I walked into the room and found the boys and Karina and Kimberly sitting on the couch talking. "Hey guys." I waved. The gifts were set around a small tree. Niall pulled my hand and sat down on the couch. He pulled me into his lap. 

"What time are we opening presents?" Louis frowned.

"Not until 12 Lou!" Liam shook his head.

"12? Why 12?" I asked the boys.

"Because that's your tradition. We want it to be like... a real Christmas." Liam smiled.

"Oh, i think the turkey is ready. I'll be back. Come with me." Harry and Kimberly got up and walked away. 


"IT'S 12!" Louis jumped up. "I WANT MINE FIRST!" He clapped. I giggled. Karina, Kimberly and I handed him a bag.

"It's from us." I smiled at him. He ripped open the bag. His jaw dropped. He pulled out a pair of navy blue and white stripped toms. 

"I love it! These are perfect girls." He hugged us. "Seriously. Thank you." He smiled.

"You're welcome Louis." We smiled at him. We opened the rest of our gifts. Niall walked over to me and handed me a small Tiffany & Co bag.

"Niall.." I bit my lip. 

"Just open it." He laughed. I opened the small box in the bag. It was a ring. I cocked my eyebrows. "Janelle, I promise that while I'm gone I will be faithful and loyal to you. My heart belongs to you Janelle. These past 2 weeks have been the most amazing days of my entire life just because of you. Will you please accept this promise ring?" He smiled at me. I sighed in relief.

"Of course, I love you." I smiled at him. The boys, Kimberly and Karina aww'd and clapped. Niall wrapped his arms around me and kissed my forehead. "Now, heres your gift." I handed Niall a book. He smiled at me. "Open it." I smiled. He opened the book. Ever since I liked One Direction, I made a scrap book about them. All the video diaries, X-factor performances, twitcams, concerts. Everything. Ever since I met the boys, I've been adding pictures and memories we've shared. I looked at Niall. His eyes began to water. He closed the book and looked up at me. He wrapped his arms around me and hugged me tight.

"Thank you." He whispered into my ear. "I love you."

"I love you too." I spoke softly into his chest. He pulled me into his room. I started to get nervous. He closed the door behind me. He pulled me over to his bed and unzipped my dress. I sighed.

"What's wrong?" He asked. "Wait.. Janelle... I don't want to.. Not tonight." He told me. 

"Okay. I thought you did and I'm just.. Not ready for it." I told him.

"I didn't want to. I'm sorry if I made you feel that way." He kissed my fingertips.

"It's okay." I slipped off my dress and shoes. I pulled my hair out of the braid. I cleaned my face in the bathroom. I jumped onto the bed and cuddled next to Niall. He wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled my closer to him. He hummed "Moments" softly into my ear, sending me into a deep sleep.
