Life is great for Jamie Sullivan. Everything seems to be falling place. She has her family around her and she's having the time of her life with the boys One Direction-Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and the love of her life, Niall Horan. And she is truly, genuinely happy. She couldn't possibly ask for anything more. But nothing is permanent. When a stranger somehow connected to her past enters her life, things start to change. How will these 'changes' affect the relationships between Jamie and the boys, especially the one with Niall? Will this stranger make Jamie's life better than it already is? Or will she lose the happiness she's been trying so hard to hold on to?


10. Am I supposed to be impressed by that?

*Jamie's P.O.V*

I did'nt appreciate the last minute change in schedule but...at least I got to be with Niall. I ALWAYS look forward to THAT. 

"Is it really necessary for me to go?" I groaned.

"Really,really. Management...." Niall quoted.

Ah. "Management" . I sighed loudly.

"Ye don't have to if you don't want to,you know."

I looked into those big,blue eyes and I smiled as his eyes lit up.

"Well, what if they ask about me and you. I mean, we haven't actually 'told' the public about us, have we?"

"You could just evade questions related to you and Niall," Taylor suggested, her American accent sounding very strange to my ears. "I do that all the time on Ellen."

"But that'd be hard to do with radio deejays," I commented. I smiled at her, appreciating her suggestion. I leaned on my newly acquired vehicle, my mind still trying to wrap around all of it. I was still pretty amazed and curious as to how they managed to get Zayn out of bed so early in the morning.

''Or you could just say that we're friends and act like brother and sister like Selena and Justin did when they first started dating. Justin's one of my buddies so...''Niall trailed off,grinning proudly. His chest was all puffed up, his feet wide apart. I've never taken any lessons in reading body language but..it was pretty clear that Niall was feeling mighty proud.

''Am I supposed to be impressed by that?'' I asked, one of my eyebrows raised. James,who was standing beside me,scoffed. Niall's face dropped.

''I just thought that you'd be a fan of...''

''Justin Bieber?'' I questioned skeptically. ''Justin Bieber is over-rated,no offense,'' I commented.

''I like her,''Taylor commented,referring to me. I beamed back at her and she giggled. ''I don't like that Justin and Selena are dating either. But they're going through some rough patches at the moment so..who knows? I love Selena to death and Justin's being a total jerk at the moment,especially with that Barbara Palvin girl,'' she said,rather crossly.

Then,at this moment, our conversation was interrupted by a loud and long burp. We all turned our heads to look at Perrie who was playing with a candy wrapper and was chewing something in her mouth looked up slowly at us to smile guiltily. ''Sorry,''' she apologised,raising her hand to close her mouth.

''Now THAT'S what I call impressive,'' I stated,laughing as I watched Taylor cringe.

I wrapped my arms around myself. It was getting colder and it didn't help that I was still in my night clothes. As Niall wrapped his arms around me to keep me warm, Zayn wrapped his arms over Perrie's chest and she giggled, looking up to kiss him. I noticed Liam glancing at them briefly before looking away,his face unreadable. He probably misses Danielle a LOT. He hasn't talked much.

''It wouldn't be safe for you if everyone found out that you're dating one of the most popular people on Earth,'' Smith commented,being the mature,responsible adult here. I nodded,deliberating.

''Smith is right. I mean, look at Danielle,'' James jumped in,glancing at Liam. Liam's eyes widened at the mention of Danielle and I felt sorry for him that she couldn't be here with him. ''Those Twitter trolls nearly caused her relationship with Liam to crumble....I really think you shouldn't go...it doesn't seem like a good idea,'' he remarked.

I wanted to walk over to Liam and give him a big hug,especially with that look on his face. Louis and Eleanor were definitely loved up and enjoying each other's company. Louis clearly did because he hasn't tried to annoy me at all so far.

''Niall,what do you think?'' I asked, burying my face into his warm chest.

''I want whatever you want,love. If it makes you happy,then I'm happy too,'' he said,kissing the top of my head. Thses small little moments,of Niall being mature and personal are the moments that remind me why I fell in love with him all over again. Well, apart from all the craziness that comes along with them,of course.

''Alright. Well, I better go get ready then,'' I said.

''So, you're coming along?'' Zayn asked hesitantly. I stopped walking towards the flat and turned my head to look at the boys.



Half an hour later, I was all dressed and feeling refreshed. I'd been contemplating to drive to wherever it was this time but then I realised that it wouldn't be wise because the boys would probably make a mess in my car. And I liked the way it was now. Not new but....not filthy either. When I walked out of my room, everyone had gone into the flat. Louis, who was sitting with an arm wrapped tightly around El, was sipping his cup of tea,like he always did every morning while everyone else was situated comfortably on the sofa, their eyes glued to the television screen. Perrie was curled up in Zayn's lap-they couldn't seem to get their hands off each other, which was adorable. Smith was sitting by himself at the dining table, also looking at the telly but he didn't seem to be paying much attention to it.

"Alright then. Let's go," I chirped.

"We have to go now," my aunt informed me. And by the look on Darcy and Quinn's faces, who were sitting comfortably beside each of their favourite boys, they didn't like it either.

"Do we really have to?" Darcy whined. I smiled to myself as I saw Quinn pouting.

"I'll treat you two to some ice cream," my aunt offered.

"Bye!" Darcy and Quinn chimed in unison,waving frantically to all of us. Well,that seemed to work out perfectly. Everyone was laughing and Smith stood up to walk towards my sisters and knelt down on one knee.

"It was an honour to meet you," he said,smiling kindly and shaking their hands. Quinn beamed back at him while Darcy just smiled.

"You're really nice," Quinn blurted out. Realising what she said, she clamps her hand over her mouth and giggles. 

"Thank you. I think both of you are really nice too. Jamie's really lucky to have you girls as her sisters," Smith says. Then, he stands back up and places his hands behind his back,like he's standing at attention.

"Can we get some ice cream too?" Niall asks, once Darcy and Quinn have hugged everyone,including me, and left.

"Maybe. But we have to do the interview first," Liam advises. 

"What about cake?" Niall insists.

"Niall," Liam groans.

"I haven't had my breakfast!" Niall complains,making a baby face.

"But-" Zayn interrupts, although there's a smile plastered on his face.

"Actually, I'd like some food myself," Perrie says, tucking her peculiar purple hair behind her ears.

"I'm hungry too," Zayn continues.

"But then we'll be late and management will throw a fit," Liam states.

"Why don't I grab some McDonald's while you boys go ahead with the interview first," I offered,willing to drive my Chevy again.

"That's a smashing idea!" Lou agrees, punching the air with his fist,nearly spilling his tea all over his girlfriend, who, instead of running away, is laughing.

"Thanks Tommo," I tease.

"Alright then, I'll see you there. What are your orders?"

They all told me their orders and I opted to write it down. If I missed ANYTHING on Niall's order, he'd be devastated.

"OK, I've got everything down. What about you, Smith?"

"I'm good,thanks," he replies. "But, could you give me a lift back to my hotel?"

"Sure. Will one of you text me the directions?" I asked.

"Eleanor!" all boys chime. Perrie giggled and popped another candy into her mouth,while Eleanor rolled her eyes. 

"You boys are horrible!" she groans.

"Even me?" Louis asks, sniffling.

She rolls her eyes. "I'm not tagging along," she says.

"Liam!" the boys call instead.

"Yeah alright," he grumbles. "Niall will probably text you the wrong directions anyway." I smile at how true his statement is.

"I have to go meet the girls," Perrie tells us, referring to her other Little Mix band members.

"Oh okay. Movie tonight? My place?" Zayn says.

"I'll be there," Perrie says,smiling as Zayn leans down to give her a kiss.

"Ooh,looks like Zayn's gonna have some fun tonight," Harry teases, doing a little dance.

"Shut up, Curly."


A few minutes later, everyone's off to their separate ways. Eleanor decides to wait at Louis' flat(perhaps to clean up a bit too) so I drop her off on the way. Come to think of it, I don't know why I've never been to the other boys' flat. Anyway, Smith is in the passenger seat beside me. Other than 'A Wanted Man' by Bon Jovi that's playing on the radio and the beautiful purr of the engine,it's quiet. 

"Are you alright?" I ask,glancing at Smith.  

"Yeah,I'm fine," he answers, but it feels like there's something on his mind.

"Is there something on your mind?"

He looks at me briefly then looks away.

"Dad," I start. The word sounds foreign in my mouth but I guess I'll have to get accustomed to it since he IS my father.

He stares at me but I pay extra attention to the road.

"Alright," he says,relenting. "I'm leaving for America tomorrow.My daughter wants me back in Florida to hang out and spend time with them before I return to Iraq."

"Oh." We've only just met and we've barely gotten to know each other. I wanted to know more about him. I wanted to spend more time with my father.

"But I want you to come along," he says. I don't reply. Eleanor and Perrie are here. James is here. My sisters are here. The five singing idiots are here. Niall...is here. How could he just expect me to pack up and leave, even if it's just for a short while?

"Turn right here. This is it. You can just drop me off right here," he tells me. The car comes to a stop and I pull the handbrake up and step out of the car and onto the pavement. This might be the last time I'd ever see him. He walks around and stands in front of me.

"It was an honour to meet you,Jamie," he says,leaning in for a hug. I hug him back but as a delayed response. Was I really going to let him go just like that? I didn't know when I'd ever see him again. What if something happened in Iraq?

He kisses the top of my head before her lets me go and turns around to enter the hotel,leaving me there.

"Wait." I couldn't let him leave. "I'll go," I tell him and his face lights up. He smiles at me, crinkles by his eyes.

"Great. The flight is at 7am tomorrow. See you tomorrow,Jamie," he says,before going into the hotel.

I watch as he disappears into the crowd in the lobby. I get back into the car and sigh loudly, pushing the handbrake down. I check my phone for Liam's text. I key in the address he's given me into the GPS system that Smith just got me and I was on my way.

I switched the radio off as it started to play 'Heart Attack'. I couldn't think properly. How was I going to tell the boys that I was leaving for America tomorrow?

More importantly, how was I going to tell Niall?
