The Set Up (One Direction)

What kind of a school sets you up with someone? I mean honestly who does that! Well, one school apparently does, they think its better for the future. Everyone knows about the "Set Up" dance, anyone whos anyone knows about it. Every year all of the years take a 100 question questionnaire about themselves. The school pairs up people and they are forced to go to the biggest dance of the year. It can be anyone from any grade. Unfortunately for Morgan Greene, she has to struggle and deal with the pain of breaking up with her boyfriend for two years and having to be paired up with someone she hasn't met. Friends will test each other on different levels than ever expected.


7. Disappointment

Chapter 7: Disappointment

*Niall’s Point of View*

      I dial Liam’s number and call him in a panic.

      Hello?” His voice says sounding a little sleepy.

       “Liam! I need your advice!”

       “What is it Horan?” He yawns into the phone.

       “Morgan wants me to go to dinner with her and her mum!”

      He pauses and murmurs something but I can’t make it out, “Oh, god. Well what do you think she meant like she wants you to meet her mum because she is forced to or she wants you to meet her mum because she wants her approval.”

      I scratch my head, “I don't know. Should I tell her I'm already busy?"

       “No, don’t do that then she will think you’re not interested in her. Just tell her, you would love to but you have plans with your brother because he is in town and you'll do it another time.” I hear a clunk through the phone and Liam shuffling around, “Sorry, I dropped the phone.”

       “It’s cool and thanks. I really appreciate it man!"

      "No problem! So how has it been going between you and her?"

      "Well we hung out yesterday; we went to Nando's and had a really fun time. Then we went back to her house and watched a movie," I hear Liam chuckle through the phone, "Anything else Horny Horan?" He says and interrupts my train of thought.

      "We wrestled then she fell asleep, I kissed her forehead when I-" Liam cuts me off, "You did what? Did she know about it? Mate your so stupid!"

      "No she was asleep! I kept myself calm when we were wrestling. She is really hot Liam! Do you know how hard that was?"

      Liam laughs, "Yeah it must have been REALLY, hard. Really hard."

       "Shut up you pervert! I meant it by kissing her!"

      "Sorry man! I feel like Louis right now." I chuckle at that.

      "Yeah, Jesus! What has he done to you?"

      "I don't know bro! My innocents are gone! I have to go; I am going to work out. See you later."

      "Bye!" I hang up and fall into my bed. I start to think of all the possibilities of what could happen with each text. I pick up my phone and try every wording possible.

      Hey, sorry I can’t relatives are in and I have to go to dinner with them! Wish I could!     

      Wait, that sounded a little to cheesy.

       Sorry Morgan! I can’t today! Maybe some other time?

      Yeah that sounds good. I read it over one last time and press send, hating myself. I wait for a reply but never get one. I have messed up, big time. I take my pillow and throw it against the wall and punch my bed with anger. I get up and walk downstairs to the fridge, there is nothing. Maybe I’m just not hungry. I walk back upstairs to my room and fall asleep to make this terrible day go by faster.


*Morgan’s Point of View*

      I pull into our school wondering when the test results will be in. Maybe I will get lucky and paired up with Niall. Probably not, but hopefully. I can’t get my mom’s words out of my head, “Just wait a little and maybe something will happen between you and Niall,” I am going to listen to her words of advice and not stress about him not coming to dinner. He told me he wasn’t doing anything after school so I know he just didn’t want to come.

      I park in my parking spot and walk to my locker. I put in the books I don’t need and take out the books I need. As I walk out the hallway door, I turn the corner and bump into someone.

       “Oh, I am s-“ I look up and see a tall, black haired, guy kneeling besides me.

      "Oh no! Don't worry it's my fault," he grabs some of my books and papers and hands them to me and we both stand up, awkwardly staring into each others eyes. I look away feeling uncomfortable and scratch my head, "Thanks." I smile at him and he smiles back.

      "Hi, I'm Zayn, Zayn Malik."

      "I'm Morgan Greene." I smile and pull the hair out of my eyes which was blown by the wind.

      He looks me up and down and laughs, "Oh so your the one who Niall always talks about right?"

      "He talks about me?" I pull my books to my chest and look down at my feet. Zayn nods and gestures outside the hallway.

      "Yeah, all the time. He has been really sketchy the past couple of days. He seems nervous. Probably because of the dance." I look at him in shock and my legs start to go numb. Zayn starts to laugh and covers his face with his hands.

      "What?" I ask confused. He motions me to turn around to see Niall standing on the portable ramp staring straight at us. I turn back around and give Zayn a confused look.

      "I don't get it?" I say rubbing my arms now, and he just shakes his head. "Nevermind." He continues to laugh. I can tell he is going to make things really awkward now.

      "I have to get to class. I'll see you later." I say walking backwards and running into someone again. My books go flying and I fall to the ground this time. Zayn runs over and helps me up.

      "Jesus I am so sorry! I guess I can't text and walk at the same time." The kid who ran into me says.

      "C'mon Lou! I've told you that you can't double task! Now pick up her books!" Zayn says chuckling. The kid picks up my books and hands them to me. He has really pretty blue eyes.

      "Sorry about that! I'll see you both around!" He says and walks away leaving me staring at him. I shake my head and start to walk to class.

      Weird, how is it possible to run into two guys within a five minute period. I guess it's possible for me.
