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.


1. Not Again

Chapter 1: Not Again

~Morgan’s Point of View~

"We're what?" I say stunned at what my mom just told me.

            Did my mom just tell me were moving?

            "I'm sorry this is late notice, I just got the offer and we need to move by this Thursday. I promise you'll love your new school and house! It's a private sch-," I cut her off.

            "Mom, I don't want to leave! My whole life is here! My friends are here! I can't leave them and I can't leave my boyfriend! Long distance relationships are so hard mom!" I start to tear up and my hands start to tremble at the thought of leaving my boyfriend. We have been dating for almost two years now, he is the love of my life, my best friend, and he is practically my whole life.

            "Then I guess you'll just have to split things off then! Why aren't you happy for me! I've wanted this for so long," She says angrier and turns to leave my room, "Start packing, whatever isn't packed isn't coming with us."

            I can't believe this. I have two days to say goodbye to my friends, break things off with my boyfriend and pack all of my things. This is terrible. Everything starts to looks farther away then they usually are and sounds become more frightening. I shut my eyes and cry myself to sleep.


            I wake up to the wonderful song Help by the Beatles; it's the probably best song for a school alarm but I forgot to turn it off this week because it’s break.

            The mouthwatering smell of pancakes and bacon fill the air, and sunlight shines through the curtains. The sounds of birds chirping make getting up so much easier. I stretch and slowly walk down the stairs into the kitchen. My mom stands over the stove flipping pancakes and bacon sizzling on another pan.

             "Hi sweetie, want some breakfast?" I nod and my mom puts a plate of food in front of me.

             "How'd you sleep last night?" My mom asks sitting next to me at our three person table.

             "Alright," I take a bite from my pancakes and we sit awkwardly at the table for a good five minutes.

"I'm sorry I snapped at you last night, I just... I just was so upset you weren't happy about it; I thought you would be happy. I shouldn't have taken that job, this is my fault." She says staring off into the distance.

“Mom, I’m sorry, I’m so happy for you! But do you know how hard it is to keep moving. I finally thought this was going to be the last time but I guess not. I don’t want to leave my boyfriend.” I say emotionally with my voice cracking a couple of times trying to hold in the tears.

“Morgan, please don’t cry. You’re going to make me cry.” My mom stands up and hugs me and kisses my cheek.

“Sorry.” We both chuckle and put our dishes into the sink.

We wash our dishes and my mom starts to walk out the door.

            “Mom, what am I supposed to do about Jason?” I say to my mom who stops cleaning the table.

            “Honey, it’s what you want to do. You could have a long distance relationship, or you could break things off until you settle in. It is up to you.”

            I scratch my head and look at my phone, 5 new messages.


            I open up the messages;

The first one, “Happy 2nd year anniversary babe! Love you so much! I cannot wait to see you today!”

Second one, “Babe I got reservations for a restaurant.”

Third, “Call me when you can.”

Fourth, “Babe this is important. Please respond in some way.”

And the fifth one, “Love you!”

I drop my phone and start bawling into my hands. Today is our anniversary and I have to tell him I am moving. I can’t even. I pull myself together and text him back.

“Happy Anniversary! Love you too! I just woke up, I will call you in a few minutes.” I say giving myself more time to think things through.

I splash some cold water on my face and bounce in place to get the blood flowing to my head. I pick up my phone and dial his number. I press send and wait for his voice.

“Hey love!” He says after the second ring.

“Hi babe! What’s up?” I say nonchalantly, but my head is racing.

“Well I got us reservations for tonight!” He says excitedly.


“It is a secret, you will see tonight.”

“I have to go, my mom is taking me to lunch! I will see you tonight! I love you”

“Later babe!” He says and I hang up.



            It is 4:00 about an hour before Jason is supposed to pick me up.

I throw on my favorite tight, shimmering purple dress, with a silver infinity necklace. I curl my hair and put it into a low side pony tail. I put on waterproof mascara, and eyeliner. I put on silver eye shadow and throw on my black high tops.

            I get a text from Jason saying he is outside. Wow he can’t even walk up to the door?

            I grab my purse, jacket, phone, wallet and walk outside. I turn the corner to see a stretched Hummer Limo. Jason is standing outside of the limo with a rose in his hand. If you couldn’t tell, Jason was pretty wealthy and I hated it when he spent money on me, but he says he loves to spoil me. Last year, he bought out a whole movie theater and they played all of my favorite movies including Wayne’s World, The Love Guru and all the Austin Powers movies. He also bought me a clothing store because he knows I love clothes and designing them.

            “Jason! Oh my God! You need to stop spending money on me!” I say walking into his open arms.

            “I promise you I didn’t rent a whole movie theater out again.” He says laughing at himself. He opens the limo door and I hop in.

            “Whoa.” My mouth drops open after seeing inside the limo. There’s heart shaped balloons and presents.

            “Don’t you love it?” Jason says grabbing my hand and squeezing it.

            I shake my head, amazed at how bad of a girlfriend I am.

            “Jason, thank you so much.” I lean up and kiss his cheek.

            “Open your presents!” He says handing me the biggest one first.

I open it afraid of what is going to be inside. I carefully pull away at the wrapping paper and open the box.

            It is a MacBook Pro.

I look up to Jason shocked.

            “Next one!” He hands me a small box that fits the palm of my hand.


            I open the tiny box to reveal a diamond heart necklace and diamond heart ring.

            “Jason.” I say as he takes out the necklace and puts it around my neck and he lightly kisses my forehead. He pulls out the ring and places it on my finger.

            “I don’t know what to say.” I mumble out admiring the ring.

            “I love you too.” He says pecking me on the lips.

            “I love you,” I say hugging him, “Jason, I have to tell you something. It is really important.”

            “Yes love.” He says sounding worried.

            I take a deep breath and say the words I have been dreading to say all day.

“I’m moving.”


            “You ready sweetie?” My mom says carrying the last of the boxes.

            I nod and take a final look at my bedroom. I walk down the stairs and touch the railing for the last time. I walk towards the door and open it for the last time. I walk on the sidewalk for the last time and I walk into Jason’s arms for the last time for a while. I can’t believe today is the day. The day I don’t want to happen.

            “I love you so much. Never forget me. If you need me I will be there in a matter of hours.” Jason says hugging me tight. I always feel so safe in Jason’s arms.

            “I won’t forget you. I will call you everyday. I love you.” We hug for about three minutes then we give a goodbye kiss and he walks me to my car. I wave bye to him and the house. I look out the window and say goodbye to the town I called my home for the past three years. I guess it was too good to be true.
