8. One Thing
It took 15 minutes to get to the girl's beach houses, I couldn't tell if I was mostly nervous or excited. I decided I was both, as I jumped out of my car I took deep breaths before walking up to the door. I hesitated before knocking, I took another long deep breath to build up my courage. I leaned forwards and knocked on the door.
I could hear foot steps, as a figure opened the door my heart skipped a beat. Several beats actual. She was stunning, she was... I couldn't describe it. I bit my lip and she smiled.
"Is everything alright?" She asked, I snapped out of my gaze.
"Yes everything's great, you just look, you look..." She quietly giggled and I feel y face turn bright red in embarrassment.
"Thank you." She whispered, I froze as she closed the door. I snapped out of it.
"Shall we go?" I asked Ash, she slowly nodded her head. I held out my hand and she softly accepted it.
I took around to the passengers seat of the car and opened the door for her, "My lady." We both laughed quietly.
"Why thank you kind Sir!" She spoke in her best British accent. I then laughed and closed the door.
As I walked over to the other side I had a mini conversation with myself, "This going good, keep it up!" I told myself. I opened my door and stepped, as I started the car I couldn't help but notice Ash's crossed fingers. I grabbed her left hand and held it in mine, " Is something wrong love?" I asked.
"No, just a little nervous." She stuttered.
"No need to be nervous." I said to comfort her, I rubbed her hand with my thumb and she smiled.
"Thank you Louis, let me say you have been quite the gentlemen so far." I smiled and pulled into the Royal Diner. It was the only diner I've ever seen with a dance floor.
"I reserved a special spot so no fans will go crazy." I saw her smile out of the corner of my eye. We walked to our special table hand in hand. We approached the door that led to out table. I grabbed the handle, but waited to open it.
"I bring ze finest table in ze house!" I said in my best French accent, Ash laughed and a I opened the door her hands flew to her mouth. As we walked in her eyes just kept getting wider.
"Oh My God Louis! This is beautiful! I can't believe how gorgeous this is!" Few! I thought this was gonna go way down hill.
"I'm glad you like it!" She smiled as we took our seats.
In front of us was two platters with noodles and pesto sauce. We both had dr. Peppers, Kay said it was Ash's favorite. I decided I should start some conversation.
"So Ash, is Ash a nick name for something? Not saying its not a name or anything, cause if its not a nick name then it's totally a name!" She laughed and raised her eyebrows, "Tht sounded really stupid didn't it?" I asked.
"I wouldn't say stupid, I'd say... Funny. And yea, my real name is Ashlyn."
"Sweet, pretty name." She smiled and sipped her Dr.Pepper
"Thanks, so do you have a favorite song?" I had to think about it.
"Yea, the A Team by Ed Sheeran." She lit up.
We both laughed and ate some of our pasta.
"So Ash, is Ash your real name? Or a nick name? Not saying its like not a name I'm, just uh curious." She raised an eyebrow, "That sounded really stupid didn't it?" She laughed.
"I wouldn't say stupid, I'd say funny. And no my real name is Ashyn."
"Oh sweet! Pretty name." She smiled and sipped her Dr.Pepper.
"So Ashlyn, do you have a favorite color?" I asked.
"Red." I jumped up
"Oh My God me too!" She laughed
"Yea I know." I totally forgot that she's a Directioner.
"You know Ash, your not like the other girls." She gave me a funny look.
"Is that a good thing?" She asked, I laughed.
"Definantly, your different... In a great way." She blushed.
We sat in silence for a moment.
"Come with me." I offered my hand and she accepted. I led her all the way to a near by beach. Before hand I had left a note in the sand, the beach had been deserted when we got there. Just as I had planned. I put my hand over her eyes and led her to the note. I quickly uncovered her eyes and ran away.
He's gone, "Louis? Louis?!" He left me, I saw before me a note in the sand. I read it to myself aloud.
Every girl has something special about them, I may not have found what's special about you yet, but that doesn't mean I am not trying. When I first met you in Miami South Beach I knew that you were the one for me. Ash, you've got that One Thing." I wiped a tear that streamed down my cheek, I started to her someone singing behind me.
"So get out get out get out of my head,
And fall into my arms instead,
I don't I don't don't know what it is,
But I need that one thing,
And you've got that One Thing."
I turned around to see Louis holding a dozen red roses.
"Louis!" I yelped, I started crying.
"Do you like it?" He whispered.
"No I love it." I smiled a the sun starte to set.
Louis wrapped his arms around my waist as I wrapped my around his neck. And then there we were kissing in the sunset.
