2. The Meeting
Where could she be??? I mean, she talks me into coming to a One Direction concert even though we have a huge test on Tuesday to see if we are going to be able to take off school for an early vacation, and then she runs of backstage to find Niall and I haven't seen her since!!!
"Courtney!!! Courtney?!?! Cour–"
I guess I was so distracted that I ran into a group of girls that looked a bit older than me. "Oh my god! I am soo sorry!!! I guess I just wasn't watch– Wait, are you Perrie Edwards???" I said to the one with blonde hair. "The Perrie Edwards? As in Perrie Edwards from Little Mix??I asked her, but i knew that it was definitely her. She started to blush, but nodded her head, indicating that I was right.
"Omigod I LOVE your album, DNA!!!" Am I seriously having a conversation with Perrie Edwards??? Yes, yes I am!!! O wow this is so amazing!
"Um, I don't mean to interrupt your excitement. But Perrie, we have to meet the boys in about 5 minutes!" The tallest girl said, sounding panicky. "Oh by the way, I'm Danielle Peazer and this is Eleanor Calder." She said pointing first to herself, than to the other girl who had brown wavy hair and looked like she was about 20 years old.
"Oh, nice to meet you! My name is Talia, Talia Allen." I told them. "But, just curious, have any of you seen a girl walking around here with Niall Horan? She's got shoulder length blonde hair, about my height, blue eyes??? Her name is Courtney Zale."
"Umm, yeah I saw her about 5 minutes ago. She was looking for the bathrooms. I'm really sorry but we have to get going soon. But it was nice meeting you!" Eleanor said. And with that, I went to go look for the bathrooms.
"Hey!!! I've been looking for you for the past half hour! Where did you disappear to???" I started with when I finally found Courtney.
"Talking with Niall and the boys! Oh that reminds me. Come with me." Courtney grabbed my hand and pulled me farther backstage. "I want you to meet One Direction! Now I know what you're thinking: How did I get such a great best friend? Well, you can thank me later."
"No Courtney I was– Wait, WHAT?!?! I GET TO MEET ONE DIRECTION?!?!?! Omigod I can't believe it!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!" Oh. My. God. Best. Day. EVER!!!!! I started jumping up and down and pulled Courtney into a bone crushing hug.
"Talia! Release!!!" Courtney yelled, laughing.
"Well, excuuuse me! I mean, this kind of thing doesn't happen everyday!!" I was practically speechless! But, there was always room for attitude! The two of us just stood there laughing while waiting for the boys.
"Hi Nialler!" Courtney ran over to Niall. "Niall, this is my friend Talia. Remember, she's been going to my school for the last 9 years."
"Yes, I remember her. She transferred to our school when we were 9!" Niall responded. Courtney leaned over, kissed Niall on the cheek and walked over to where I was standing.
"Boys, this is my best friend, Talia Allen. Talia, this is Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Harry Styles." Courtney told them excitedly. Almost immediately, Harry and I locked eyes.
I don't know what it was, but something about Talia seemed familiar. It was very strange, but she seemed to recognize me too...
