Quite the Oardeal (A Rowers 1D fanfic)

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.” ~Love Actually


2. Dates and Skype Date?

It's time for my date. I can't believe it. With the one and only Niall! As I heard someone knock on my hotel room door, I knew it was time. I completely forgot the boys were staying in the same hotel as my mother and me.
     "You look gorgeous." Niall said as he opened the door. He handed me a flower.
     "You look pretty good yourself!" I smiled back.
      "Have fun. Don't do anything stupid." My mom laughed.
She knew me well enough to know that I wouldn't do anything stupid. Niall must have rented a car because we stepped into a sky blue corvette. I was almost positive that none of the boys owned one. When we finally arrived at the restaurant I was so giddy.
       "Can I get some chicken and a cup of water?" Niall asked the waiter.
      "And for you?" The waiter asked.
      "Um. I'll just have a glass of water." I replied.
The waiter left and went to put in our orders.
     "Why didn't you order any food?" Niall asked.
     "I'm not really hungry." I lied.
     "I know I haven't known you very long, but that face is a face of fear and lying." Niall concluded.
     "Okay. Niall. Do you really want to know the truth? You can't tell anyone. Not even the boys." I stated.
     "What is it?" Niall asked, looking concerned.
     "I don't really eat. I've been told so many times that I'm fat. I just can't bring myself to it." I almost cried.
      "Julia. How much do you weigh? You are skinny as a twig!"
      "I'm 100 pounds." I replied.
      "Julia. That isn't healthy. I don't want you to hurt yourself."
      "Well how are you going to help me?" I asked.
      "I'm going to come up with an eating plan fit for what you need for your daily nutrients." Niall offered.
      "I would love that Niall, but at times you're going to have to fight me to eat. Whenever I see food, I just immediately lose my appetite. I can't help it. My body is used to it." I told him.
      "Julia I care about you too much to give up. I will do anything to make you healthy again. No matter what." Niall smiled.
After he said this, he leaned to me and his lips met mine. He was so perfect. I couldn't believe it was happening. He bit my lip and I felt infinite. When we finally pulled apart from the kiss, I just wanted to do it again. He picked the perfect moment. He showed me that he cared about my feelings and my opinions. Finally, a guy who listens.
We walked around a park for a bit, just holding hands and talking endlessly. I looked at my watch and it was 9 o'clock.
    “Niall this was really great! I had such a great time. I think we should head back to the hotel now.” I said frantically looking at my watch.
    “Maybe, if it’s no trouble to your mum, you could hang out with me and the lads for a bit.” Niall suggested.
    “I’ll call her and ask.” I said.
She was completely fine with me hanging out alone in a hotel room with 5 boys. What has happened to my mother? She mentioned something to me about maturity and being proud, but I was too astounded by her permission to pay attention completely.
    “Shall we head over to the hotel then?” Niall asked.
    “We shall.” I smiled.
Julia is such a great girl. I can really see us being together. I feel really bad about her eating disorder and I want to help her as much as I can. She also seems really mature and also has a lot of humor, which I’m really into.
We finally got back to the hotel room. We walked in, hand in hand. I was really nervous about how the boys would react. What if they didn't approve of her

"Welcome back!" Harry smiled.

“ Niall we missed you.” Louis half screamed.

“Hey, Niall.” Zayn said oh so coolly.

“Niall, Julia, welcome back.” Liam politely said.

"It's nice to see you all again." Julia smiled. Her smile is so gorgeous. Wait! How is this the first time I've noticed she has braces? And the same kind as me, too!

"Is there anything you guys want to do?" I asked.

"I have no idea." Harry sighed.

"I'm not sure either." Liam stated.

"We could go skinny dipping." Zayn winked.

"No no no Zayn! We have a girl here. We can't do that!!" Louis squealed.

"Actually. That sounds kind of fun. And I've never done it before." Julia grinned.

"Alright then! I'll have Paul rent out the pool for us so there's no interruptions." I beamed.

"Guys I'm really scared." Julia said.

"Why? It's just us." Harry asked

"I've just never done it before. And I don't know what you do when you go skinny dipping." Julia said shyly.

"All we do is hang out and talk about anything. You can stay underwater the whole time if you want." Zayn suggested.

"Alright. That doesn't sound that bad." Julia admitted.

"Paul just said it's reserved just for us right now." Niall said.

Wow. Niall is one lucky lad. That Julia girl is gorgeous. I only suggested skinny dipping because I want to see her body. Not in a creepy way. But she's so beautiful.
We finally got down to the pool room.
     "Hey boo bear! Undress me!!" I shouted playfully.
    "Coming right over!" Harry shouted.
This is going to be loads of fun! We haven't skinny dipped in ages!!
You can do this Julia. Just don't do anything to embarrass yourself. Try to do something that will get Niall's attention.
    "Hey Niall! Can you help me unbutton my shirt?" I asked.
    "I would love to." He offered.
Just the feel of his hands on my skin. I could feel the tingling. After he helped me get my shirt off I thanked him and he jumped in the pool. I didn't realize that he was already naked when he helped me unbutton my shirt. Oh well. I quickly slipped my pants off and jumped in.
    "Julia, you are very fit." Harry blatantly stated.
    "I'm really not, but thank you." I said.
    "No really. Your body is perfect." He replied.
I started crying. I don't think he realized how much that meant to me. I wonder if Niall told the boys about my problem. I swam over to Niall and just hugged him for I don't even know how long. I just wanted to let him know that I was thankful.
Her body pressed up against mine. It felt wonderful. I'm so lucky to have her. I leaned in and kissed her. I started off light and slow and then it got more intense. I couldn't control myself.
    "Hey Niall! Don't swallow her!" Harry giggled.
I leaned away from the magic I was experiencing. I guess it was getting a little to physical for a public venue.
It was a chilly Friday night, and as usual, I didn't want to get up from my nap. As some of you may not know about me is that I love to sleep. So anyway, every time I wake up I have to check my phone. As I checked my phone, I saw that I got a lovely text from the beautiful, Julia. It read:

"Guess who just got back from a date with Niall?" xoxo Julia texted.

I replied, "Oh, does the name start with a J and ends with a ulia?

Instantly, I get a reply back saying, "YESSSS!!!!"

Now I could not contain my laughter, but I might just be a little bit too sleepy. I respond by saying,

"I'm so happy for you. I wish that Harry knew me :(. Maybe, if ever, we could double date?

Julia says, "YES, definitely in the near future. Well I gotta go! bye bye :)"

I texted back, "BYES! :)"

Man I love that little chica. Sometimes when I'm feeling down she is always there to pick me up. After I set my phone down, I snuggle back into my covers and fall into a deep sleep.
    “Guys I think we should skype Abby tonight! Surprise her! It would make her really happy!!” I said.
    “That sounds like loads of fun!” Harry beamed.
    “Alright! We can get dressed and then head back to our hotel room to talk to her.” I stated.
    “Sounds like a plan!” Niall winked.
We finally finished getting dressed and headed up to the boys’ hotel room. I turned on their computer and opened up skype. I was logged into Niall’s account.
    “You have a skype?!” I asked excitedly.
    “Yes I do! I’ll text you it later babe.” Niall replied.
I logged onto my account and called Abby.
*Ring Ring*.
    “Uh. Hello?” Abby asked sleepily.
    “Abster. Are you okay? You look like you got hit by a bus.” I replied.
    “I just woke up bitch!” Abby laughed.
    “Hey watch your language! The boys are with me!” I replied.
    “HIIIIIIII!” All the boys shouted.
    “Abby is more beautiful than I imagined.” Harry whispered to Louis.
    “I heard that Harry! Thank you so much!” Abby squealed sleepily.
    “Love at first sight? I think yes!” Zayn shouted.
    “Oh hush Zayn!” Harry giggled.
I was genuinely surprised that Abby wasn’t hyperventilating right now.
    “Uh. Abby. Are you okay?” I asked sheepishly.
    “Well, Julia. We had a really hard workout today. And I have practice in a few hours.” Abby replied.
I looked at a clock. 3:37 am.
    “Oh shit! Did you guys notice the time?! My mother is going to kill me! Literally kill me!!!!!” I screamed.
    “Julia. Calm down. We can explain to her what happened. Minus the skinny dipping part of course. How about we tell her that we went bowling?” Niall suggested.
    “Julia, I’ll talk to you tomorrow. I hope you see you all in the future. It was great informally meeting you all. Goodnight Harry!” Abby returned.
    “Goodnight Abby.” Harry replied.
Abby signed off of skype. I was still trying to comprehend what was happening. Honestly, I would have never expected this to happen.
    “Guys! If I go back to my hotel room my mom will know we went swimming!” I came to the conclusion.
    “Why is that?” Liam asked, puzzled.
    “I smell like the chlorine from the pool.” I explained.
    “Well you can use our shower and clean yourself off.” Harry offered.
    “Thank you so much!!” I nearly shouted!

What a great night. And I got to spend all of it with her. What a great way to end this trip.
    “Hey Niall! Maybe she couldn’t find the shower. Why don’t you go in there and help her out?” Zayn teased.
    “Come on guys. You’ve gotta respect a lady...and she is a fine woman.” Niall smiled.
    “We know we know. We’re just kidding!” Louis chuckled.

What a great night. I can’t believe this is all happening to me. The showers in this hotel are really nice too! I wonder if my mom knows!
  "Guys. I should probably head back. My mum and I have to catch a flight tomorrow morning." Julia sighed.
  "Julia. I'm going to miss you so much. Please don't go." Niall whimpered.
I walked towards him and all I could so was hug him as hard as I could. I needed to be able to remember him until I see him next. Oh god. Im gonna miss his Horan hugs.
   "Julia. Please don't cry." Niall whispered in my ear.
   "I can't help it. I'm going to miss you so much." I cried.
   "Julia. I love you. So much. I'll try to visit you as much as possible. Whatever it takes. I don't care if you're on the other side of the world from me. You just have to stay positive, and whenever you start missing me, just remember everything we've done together." He kissed me. It wasn't a quick kiss. It was slow and passionate and I just wish I could cherish the moment even more. However, I didn't realize how beautiful the moment was until Louis started crying.
    "Aw Julia! I'm going to miss you too!" Louis wailed.
    "We're all going to miss you!!" Zayn exclaimed.
All of us, and I mean all of us, group hugged. It was so warm. I loved the feeling that people out there care.
    "Don't worry guys. We'll keep in touch. Don't forget about me!"
    "Not in a million years." Niall smiled.
I slowly walked away. Niall pulling me in one more time for a goodbye kiss. I left the room. I got back to my hotel room, my mom sleeping.
    "Please remain seated until the seatbelt sign lights up. You will also not be able to use electronic devices until we are at least 1500 feet in the air. Thank you and enjoy the flight." The flight attendant spoke into the microphone.”

I woke up Saturday morning knowing that I have early morning practice. Knowing that I have practice makes me wanna snuggle in my bed longer, but I know that if I don't get up, I’ll be late. So, I jumped out of bed. I went to my dresser and put on a sports bra, a shirt, a sweatshirt, then my spandex, and finally sweatpants. I then, put my crew bag together, with extra clothes in it. (You never know when you're gonna need them.) I finally ran downstairs and grabbed my tennis shoes and my boat shoes and a granola bar, and finally I ran out the door.
As I'm picking up my carpool, I switch in the radio and Ryan Seacrest is on. He was talking about one direction, of course. I just smiled. Then, he played their new song Kiss You. I love that song, so I sang along to it.
As the song finally ends, I get to the boathouse. Right on time, as always. I try to find a parking space, and I get out and walk to the boat bay. Waiting for Saturday morning practice to start.
I check my phone as I always do, and I see that I have a text message from an unknown number.

So of course I text back, who is this?

I get a response saying, “One of your most favorite people in the world.”

I respond, “What?”

This unknown number texts back, “Meet me at the point around 5 o’clock. I’ll be waiting with a dozen roses just for you.”

Alright, I think to myself, well knowing Harry, he loves to disappear out of the blue. Maybe it could be him. But aren’t I suppose to meet him at the Henley? I’m so confused.
