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.

Chapter 8: Hope

         *Morgan’s Point of View*

You said it in a simple way,
4 AM, the second day,
How strange that I don't know you at all.
Stumbled through the long goodbye,
One last kiss, then catch your flight,
Right when I was just about to fall

I told myself don't get attached,
But in my mind I play it back,
Spinning faster than the plane that took you...

And this is when the feeling sinks in,
I don't wanna miss you like this,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.
I guess you're in New York today,
I don't wanna need you this way,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.

The delicate beginning rush,
The feeling you can know so much,
Without knowing anything at all.
And now that I can put this down,
If I had known what I'd known now,
I never would have played so nonchalant.

Taxi cabs and busy streets,
That never bring you back to me,
I can't help but wish you took me with you...

And this is when the feeling sinks in,
I don't wanna miss you like this,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.
I guess you're in London today,
I don't wanna need you this way,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.

This is falling in love in the cruelest way,
This is falling for you and you are worlds away.

New York... be here.
But you're in London and I break down,
'Cause it's not fair that you're not around.

This is when the feeling sinks in,
I don't wanna miss you like this,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.
I guess you're in New York today,
And I don't wanna need you this way,
Come back... be here, come back... be here.

I don't wanna miss you like this.
Come back... be here.
Come back... be here.

          I sing along to Taylor Swift, laying face down in my bed. I slowly dose off, continuously looking at my clock.

         11:58… 1:09… 2:26… 3:48

         After looking one last time, I fall into a deep sleep.

~~~

        I wake up to my phone buzzing; I look at the clock to see it is 9:00. School has already started. I jump out of bed feeling a little light headed and bolt to my car. I put the key into the ignition and drive to school, swerving around cars and going into different lanes.

        I finally pull into my spot and run to my class, the one I am supposed to be in. I run into the classroom to see it empty. No one is here. The lot is filled with cars but the school seems disserted. I walk out and walk around the school trying to find someone, finally I found a campus supervisor.

       “Excuse me, I was wondering where everyone was?” I ask politely.

       “Everyone is in the theater; they are announcing the results for the dance. Hurry and find out who you’re with!” I smile and run to the theater. I quickly take a seat and watch as the names and pictures of the couples go up onto the screen.

       Emily Foster and Damian Jacks’ pictures show up side by side.

       The picture disappears and a blonde boy shows up next to a girl with brown hair, it isn’t me or Niall.

      More pictures show on the screen, the boy, Louis, the second guy I ran into yesterday shows up on the screen, with a girl named Nicole. That fades and then the picture I have been waiting for shows up.

.      Niall’s picture shows up first then a girl’s picture slowly appears on the screen.

      My jaw drops to see the girl on the screen, that’s me. I cannot believe this.  

      I am going to the dance with Niall. I stand up and I look around the theater, I see Niall across the row and we both start to walk to each other. Everyone starts to clap and whistle as Niall and I become closer to each other.

     We finally reach each other and we hug each other really tight. He pulls away and we look into each other’s eyes.

      “I knew we would become something one day.” Niall says smiling.

       He grabs my chin and slowly pulls me in close to him; I shut my eyes and wait for the kiss.

       The bell rings and my eyes open.

      I am not in the theater though with thousands of students, no, but I am lying in my bed with the sunlight shining through my bed sheets.

      I am not actually going to the dance with Niall Horan. There isn't any hope for me anymore. I give up.
