Catching up with the other was a bit harder than I’d expected it to be. Of course, I should’ve known. We had waited for more than an hour. But, we were faster than most of the others so we arrived just when the last ones arrived as well.
I felt a little bit overwhelmed by everything that’d happened in those two days that we were canoeing. Okay, maybe more than a little bit. I couldn’t explain why, but it had have something to do with Niall. I mean, what else could’ve happened?
After that, everything went by in a rush. I don’t really remember getting back at out little house. But I do remember, that when we got there I just laid down in bed. Fully dressed, make-up - or what was left of it after a night sleeping in a cave – still on my face. But at that moment I honestly couldn’t care less. I was exhausted. Everything had been really tough, physically and mentally, and now my body and brain needed rest.
The moment my head hit my pillow I was gone, fast asleep.

When I opened my eyes again, I saw the bright blue sky and a few clouds floating in it. This was confusing, I would’ve sworn I fell asleep in my own bed, in my own room. I got up, and noticed I was wearing a big, white, fluffy dress and high heels. My brown hair was braided and smelled like jasmine, my favourite flower.
Far in the distance, I was someone coming my way. “Niall?” I asked, but he was probably too far away to hear my voice. When the person came closer I saw it was my father, who was running. When he was close enough for me to hear him, he shouted, “hurry up, you don’t want to be late, do you?” Before I could say anything he took my arm and pulled me with him.
We ran for what felt like hours, through many different landscapes. We ran over enormous mountains, through great deserts and snowy fields without getting tired, before we arrived at a white beach. I soon realized we were at a wedding, and got excited. Who were getting married?
My father took me with him to the altar. I saw my mother, tearing up, in the front row. I took me a while before all the pieces fit together. I was the one who was getting married! I panicked. Who would be the one standing next to me? Did I know him? He slowly turned around. When I saw who it was, I froze. It was no ‘him’. It was Tiffany. I turned around, and saw Niall shaking his head slowly with a disappointed look on his face before he walked away. I wanted to go after him and explain the situation – even though I couldn’t – but my father pushed me forward. When I was standing next to Tiffany, she turned her head. “I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long,” she said, and an evil smile appeared on her mouth.


I woke up, soaking wet from my own sweat. Apparently I’d been screaming, because I saw Tori standing next to my bed and Niall and Harry came storming into our room. “Are you okay?” Tori asked. “We were still awake and heard you scream,” Harry said. “We were pretty worried,” Niall added. “I… I’m fine. Just a nightmare,” I mumbled. The dream wasn’t really scary, but to me it somehow was.  “What time is it?” “It’s 1:00 AM,” Tori answered. “And you were still awake?” I asked. “I was just about to go to bed,” Tori replied. “Harry and I were still in the living room, talking,” Niall said. “But we better be off to bed too, Niall,” Harry said. I nodded, and they left our room each of them mumbling, “goodnight.” “You want to talk about it?” Tori asked? “No, I don’t even remember it anymore. Just forget about it,” I lied and faked a little smile. “I’m just tired, so I’m going back to sleep now,” I mumbled. I didn’t know whether Tori believed it or not, but she just nodded and crawled into her own bed too. I didn’t fall asleep though. I guess Sandy had already left.  I just kept wondering about what this dream could’ve meant. If it meant something, of course. Maybe I was just overreacting. However, when I finally fell asleep I could already see the sunlight shining through the window. Great. Just what I needed. Another exhausting night. (please note the sarcasm)


“I’m pretty worried about her,” Niall said after they’d gotten into their own room. “Dude, relax. It was just a nightmare,” Harry replied and took his shirt off. “It’s not just about that, it’s also about something she told me when we were alone,” the Irish boy mumbled. Harry raised his eyebrows and looked at Niall with a questioning look. “I’m not sure if I’m supposed to talk about this,” he mumbled. “Then don’t,” Harry simply replied and shrugged. “She trusted you with that, not me.” “Thanks,” Niall said and smiled slightly. “After all, you two are dating,” Harry smirked and gave Niall a friendly push. “Yeah…” Niall mumbled. “How long are you two going to keep doing that?” the curly haired boy asked. “I don’t know,” Niall answered. “Just until she thinks we can ‘break up’.” Harry nodded. He knew why they were together. “And you’re okay with that?” Niall shrugged. “I guess so.” Lie. He didn’t want it to end. Harry sighed. “Well, I’m going to sleep now. If you need any help or advice, I’m here for you to help.” Niall smiled. “Thanks Haz.”
They were soon fast asleep, so nobody noticed the person sneaking away, disappearing in the shadows.
