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.




***Janelle's POV***

I ran up to my room and grabbed my phone from my bed. I had 13 text messages. I opened them. I texted all the boys and told them I had just gotten home from the hospital. My mom enrolled me out of school and decided that I get home schooled. I start home school next week. My phone started ringing. I slid my thumb across the screen and answered.


"Hey! I'm so glad to hear you're home!" That familiar irish accent made me giggle

"Aw! Thanks so much for coming to the hospital. Seriously, it means a lot. When people tell me that One Direction doesn't give a shit about their fans I can now actually say they do and have like tell them my story."

"Thats great, I was wondering if you'd like to come paint balling with me and the boys later on today after our rehearsals. We rented the place for 3 hours so..."

"Sure, that would be awesome!"

"You should bring Kimberly and Karina as well. We didn't get a chance to actually introduce ourselves to them!"

"Okay, well they're not out of school yet so.. I'll text them in a few and let you know."

"Alright, bye bye love.


"NO YOU ARE NOT DEAD SHUT THE HELL UP!" My mother screamed from the kitchen. I laughed. I ran to my closet. Shit paintball means my clothes get destroyed. UGH! 


I called Karina and Kimberly on 3-way. They picked up.

"Be at my house by 5. We're going to NYC Paintball so don't look all pretty." I told them.

"With who?" Karina asked.

"Leo asked me and he told me to bring you guys." I lied.

"YOU'RE CRUSH?!" Kimberly shouted into the phone.

"YES JUST BE HERE AT 5!" I demanded and hung up. They're going to love me. Forever.  I looked at the time. It was 4:30 so the girls should be here very soon. I put on a white shirt that said "Weird" on it. I hated this shirt. It made me look fatter than I already am. I put on black skinny jeans and low top black converse. I pulled my hair back into a high pony tail. Karina and Kimberly walked into my door.

Meet us at NYC Paintball ASAP Niall texted me. I texted him back. "Let's go." I told the girls. We walked out the door. My mom pulled into the driveway from the supermarket. "Mo-"

"Get in." My mom groaned. I laughed. We piled into her car. "Where to my darlings?" She asked.

"NYC Paintball." I told her. She nodded and drove.


"See you later mom!"

"Do you need a ride home?" She asked me. 

"No!" I told her. We walked into the place. I looked around for the boys but they weren't here.

"Janelle?" A guy asked me. He was cute. His hair was dirty blonde and his eyes were green. He looked about 19. 

"Yes." I smiled at him.

"Come." Karina, Kimberly and I followed him to a room. The boys walked in all geared up and had huge guns in their hands.

"YOU LIAR!" Kimberly punched my arm softly.

"Suprise asshole." I rolled my eyes at her. Harry chuckled. 

"Come I'll help you girls get ready." Louis waved us over towards him. "Just put these pants on and this thingy. A helmet and grab a gun." He told us.

"Thanks Lou!" I smiled.

"No problem love." He smiled and walked out.

"I'm going to shoot you in the face! Do you know how hideous I look!?" Karina frowned.

"At least you're not hideous 24/7." I rolled my eyes at her. I slipped on my helmet and grabbed a gun. I walked back out into the room where the boys are.

"Aw you look so cute all geared up." Zayn laughed.

"Don't get shot Zayn." I smirked at him. He frowned. I laughed a bit. Kimberly and Karina walked out. 

"Alright team captains are Harry and Louis." Liam told us. "Harry, heads or tails?"

"Heads." Liam flipped a coin in the air. It landed on tails.

"Oh, sorry mate. Louis pick."

"Karina." He smiled at her.

"Kimberly." Harry said.

"Liam." Louis waved him over. Great. I'll probably get picked last.

"Niall." Harry smiled.

"Zayn." Louis winked at me. I cocked my eyebrow at him. What? I shook it off and walked towards Harry.

"Rules, friendly fire means you get 10 shots to the gut and have fun!" The guy told us and walked away. We ran out into the huge arena. I'm going to die. I hid behind a huge pole. Niall found me and laughed.

"C'mon. I'll help you." He smiled, I nodded and took his hand. "You see Louis? He's not paying attention." I nodded. "Shoot." I picked up the gun and aimed it towards Lou. I pressed the trigger. It hit Louis right in the bum. He fell down to the floor. I hid behind the wall again. "You're good." Niall smiled at me.

"Thanks." I smiled back.


I sat next to Niall and Zayn. Louis and Karina sat in front and Kimberly sat in the back with Harry and Liam. 

"Well.. that was fun!" Zayn laughed.

"Totally!" Karina looked back and smiled at us.

"We should hang out again." Niall smiled at me.

"Sure." I giggled. The boys dropped me off at home with Karina and Kimberly. We said goodbye. I hugged Karina and Kimberly.

"See you guys later." Karina waved goodbye. They both walked home. I walked inside my house and kissed my mom on the cheek. 

"Goodnight mommy." I hugged her and walked upstairs. My phone started to ring. "Hello?" I answered.

"Hey. We just got home." It was Niall.

"Okay.. whats up?" I asked.

"I wanted to know if.. you wanted to skype?" He asked me. 

"Uhm... sure text me your user and I'll call you."

"Okay!" He hung up. He texted me his skype and I called him. His face popped up. I waved. "Hey!" He smiled eating a bag of Doritos. I laughed

"Hey." I smiled.


"Why did you try to commit suicide?" Niall asked me. I hesitated.

"Niall.." I felt the tears building up.

"I'll be at your house in 10 minutes with a bucket of chocolate ice cream and a huge hug okay? okay bye." The screen went blank. I laughed a bit and waited downstairs. It was 2 in the morning and Niall Horan was coming to my house.  A few minutes later there was a slight knock on my door. I answered it slowly. I put a finger on my lips and led him upstairs. I closed my room door and sat down on my bed. He joined me. "Tell me now?" He asked.

"Uhm.. well..." I couldn't hold it in. The tears bursted out my eyes.

"Shh. It's okay. I'm here Janelle. I'm not going anywhere." He whispered into my ear.

"I'm anorexic, bulimic, suicidal and bi-polar." I confessed to him. "I get bullied on a daily basis. I hate the way I look. My father never gave a shit about me. If I died no body would care. So I just did it." I wiped the tears away from my face

"Janelle." I looked down at my feet. "Look at me." I looked up at Niall. My eyes met with his. "When I got that call, I honestly did not want to go to the hospital. But when I walked into that room.. my heart skipped a beat. I fell in love with your beauty. Your beautiful brown hair, your pink plump lips, your cute button nose. Everything Janelle. You're miles away from fat or ugly. In my eyes you're beautiful. Inside and out. I've been waiting for that text from today like crazy. I can't stop thinking about you. You can ask the boys. I'm starting to grow feelings for you and I just met you. You're perfect Janelle." He cupped my face with his warm hands.

"I'm far from perfect Niall." I turned my head away from him.
