23. Chapter 23- A LONG RIDE

We are now in the car driving to the lad's apartment, the "we" was me Alena, Bertie and my gramps. Today was finally day I was leaving for the lad's British tour, all my things are packed up and i'm ready to go! But other's than that i'll miss Alena , Bertie and not to mention my gramps. Five days without them is like just different. I'm used to having Alena and Bertie by my side all the time but now it's going to be a whole new thing. My gramps was driving, Alena and me sat at the back while Bertie sat infront. We were nearing to the apartment when there was a crowd of girls in the lobby. The boys were nowhere to be found.

"What now"? my gramps asked.

"Well Liam texted me last night and told us to park inside the parking lot" I said. My gramps made a turn for the parking as we passed the crowd of girls. I could see Bertie drooling already, I smacked him on the head.

"Snap out of it!" I said.

"OWWW! that hurt!" he said and went back drooling over the girls . I sighed and leaned back.

"Bertie drooling, reminds me of Claire drooling over him" Alena said.

"Haha! you got that right" I replied. We reached the parking lot and parked in one of the spaces. I called Liam but he wasn't answering, I tried Zayn and Louis still no, I was confident that Niall would answer but sadly he didn't so my last hope was Harry. I was about to swear when he someone on the other line said hello. It was Harry.

"Harry?" I said.

"Oh hey! c," he replied.

"oh thank heavens you answered! I tried calling all 4/5 of the boys but they weren't picking up!" I said.

"Well Liam is helping Zayn with the packing, Louis and Niall are helping Paul loading the tour bus and me well i'm just waiting for you to call" he said. I knew that boy was grinning eventhough I can't see it!

"Ain't that nice, but anyways where should I wait?" I asked.

"Just hold on , i'm coming down"


"Great see you there" he said as he hung up. Harry came down in less than 5 minutes. He was wearing a white shirt with an orange jacket and grey jeans. His hair was all messed up as usual but he looked kind off hot if you ask me.

"Hey!" I said.

"C!" he replied and we hugged. "Long time no hug" he said. "But it's only been 3 days last we saw each other?" I replied. "It's a long time for me" he said as he hugged me tighter. He let go off me a few seconds later.

"Harry, I would like you to meet my two best friends Alena and Bertie" I said gesturing to them.

"Hi" Alena said. "Sup" Bertie said. I facepalmed myself.

"It's very nice to meet you two again" he said shaking their hands.

"Oh and i'm sure you've already met my gramps" I said turning my direction to my gramps.

"Of course, it's really nice to meet you again Mr. May" Harry said as he shook my gramps hand.

"The pleasure's all mine" my gramps replied while shaking Harry's hand back. I went round the back to take out my luggage, Harry followed me behind while helping me.

"The bus is on the other end of the parking lot" Harry said while carrying one of my duffel bags.

"Okay" and followed his lead . Alena and Bertie followed me too while my gramps decided to drive at the other end of the parking lot. So much for his daily exercise.

When we reached the bus, there were a few people running back and forth carrying stuff, loading stuff, and even people directing others where to put the stuff. That's a lot of stuff. Some people were even packing the musical instruments.

"Hey isn't that Josh ?" Alena asked and pointed to a boy wearing a blue shirt with beach shorts.

"I think it is" I replied as we walked pass him.

"PAUL, CHARMAINE IS HERE!" Harry shouted. Paul came out carrying a box.

"Well hello Charmaine, i'm sorry I can't stay and chat right now but i'll leave Harry to show you around the tour bus okay?" he said.


"I bet it's gonna be like the public bus only decorated with pictures of the lads" Bertie whispered to me. I nudged him. Harry lifted my luggage as he walked on the steps of the bus, when we were all finally inside, we didn't quite imagine how the bus would actually look like this which was amazing! It was huge! Bright! and there were no pictures of the lads anywhere !

"Sure do looks like the public bus Bertie" I said while grinning. Bertie didn't answer he was having a hard time believing how amazing this place was himself. 

"This is LEGIT!" Alena exclaimed.

"Wait till you see the back" Harry said and led us to the back. He was right, it was more legit than the front. There was a gaming room, kitchen, Ultra thin flat screen TV in High-Def!, a little dining hall, oh and don't get me started on the toilets! It was clean! CLEAN I REPEAT CLEAN!

"So this will be your room" Harry said as he laid my luggage on the floor. It was medium sized room with a few bunk beds in it.

"It's not 5 star quality but hey! you get flicker lights!" Harry said playing with the flicker light. I laughed.

"It's okay, it's actually cute"

"So who am I sharing a room with?" I asked.

"No one at the moment, one of our crew members, Jane had really high fever so she couldn't come" 



"OMG OMG OMG! this is so awesome!"i said  while jumping . I couldn't control my excitement, I mean me, Charmaine going on tour with one direction and getting her own room all to herself? That's over the moon for me. I walked around the room, as I walked there was a blue door. 

"Charmaine don't o-" . Harry sentenced got cut off when I opened the door. To my amazement it was a bathroom! BATHROOM!" I'M GOING ON TOUR WITH ONE DIRECTION WHILE HAVING MY OWN BEDROOM AND BATHROOM! " I said as jumped higher than before.

"That's not fair! she's just a photographer" Bertie protested.

"Oh shut it !" I snapped back and continued fan girling about my room. After a few hours of loading the bus, it was time to leave London. We came out of the bus and saw Paul, the rest of the boys and my gramps .

"Okay people! IT'S TIME TO MAKE A MOVE ON!" Paul exclaimed. I sighed, as much as I loved how much this day was going. I'm sure am going to miss Alena, Bertie and my gramps.

"I'll let you have a moment" Paul said . I smiled and walked where my gramps was standing.

"Well here goes nothing!" I said and shrugged

"I'm gonna miss you" Alena said.

"No! i'm gonna miss her!" Bertie protested.

"No I am!"

"NO I AM!" and the fighting begins. I rolled my eyes and hugged them both." I'm gonna miss both of you!" I said while hugging them. They hugged me back.

"We're gonna miss you too" Alena and Bertie said together. I could feel a tear forming in my eye, I wanted to control it from slipping but too late it already did.

"C! are you crying" ? Bertie asked.

"NO I'M NOT .. THAT WAS UM..UM... MY SWEAT? YES YES MY SWEAT!" I said in defense.

"Riiiiightttttttt" Alena said.

"Okay! okay! it was a tear! but the only reason it fell it's because of you guys! I'm gonna miss you a lot " i said . They smiled. My gramps took a step forward to me.

"Hi" i said.


"ALRIGHT! ALRIGHT! I'M GONNA MISS YOU GRAMPA!" I said and hugged him. He hugged me back.

"Can you keep a secret?" i whispered into his ear.


"I'm gonna miss you more than i miss them" i said. A smile grew between his hug as he let go.

"I know, i know," he said while putting his hands across from my shoulder.

"2 more minutes" Paul said as he wined down the window giving me the heads up. I gave him a thumbs up signaling "Okay".

Tears were starting to fill up my eyes. I wiped them away quickly.

"Hey, it's okay to cry, it actually shows you care and you have feelings " My gramps said wiping away my tears.  I nodded in agreement.

"Now you get up there right now and take the best damn photos of one direction the world will ever see" My gramps said.

"Yes SIR!" I said and saluted. We laughed. I hugged my gramps for the last time, then Alena and Bertie . I walked up the bus and waved while saying good bye to them as the bus moved. When they were finally out of my sight I sighed while looking out the window. Suddenly someone tapped me on the shoulder, it was Louis.

"I don't think that's a great idea " Louis said.

"What? staring out the window?"


"Why not?" I said and continued to face the window when suddenly a girl's face came out of nowhere. Seconds later her face was squashed between the glass when a few other girls pushed her.

"AHHHHHHHHH" I screamed and accidently fell on my bum.

"That's why" Louis said crouching down at me. The next thing I knew flashes of camera were making it's way through. My eyes were now a bit blurry and most of the time filled with stars. I looked back at the bus driver and he seemed pretty okay.

"How do you go through all this?" I asked while rubbing my eyes.

"Years of practice and high quality sunglasses" he replied. I blinked a few times and made my way through the back with Louis. This is gonna be a looong ride I thought to myself.
