Today is Friday...also the day of Prom. So today they cancelled school for all of us to get ready. I'm up for prom...just not the getting ready part. I just wanna lay in my bed and watch tv all day, but no Nicole has to drag me to town and get our nails done and hair.
So I'm up and dressed and we're heading out the door by noon. Harry and the boys had a concert in Manchester today. Thank goodness that its a matinee so Niall and Harry won't miss prom.
I've been listening to their music and I'm really enjoying it. They aren't bad at all...now I know what all of their fans talk about. So right now I'm in Nicole's car on our way to 'one of the best' nail places...so she says.
I reached for the radio to turn up the volume.
'If I was your man' by Bruno Mars was on.
"Ugh I hate this song!" I reached to change the station but she slapped my hand.
"Ouch! Hey! What was that for?" I asked rubbing my hand. "You tried to change the song..." She said as if it was obvious.
"Yeah I know...why did you do that?" I asked. "I love this song! And it's me and Niall's song." She said and passes this one old guy on the rode.
"Ohhh so it's your lover song is it now?" I smiled weirdly which made her laugh then me laugh. We laughed for a good five minutes.
"I'm glad you're my friend." She says.
"Yeah, same..but we're so stupid and pathetic!" I giggled.
"Yes, yes we are!" She laughed and so did I.
A powerful kick came to my stomach. "Baby kick!" I shouted, which made Nicole laugh even harder.
"Be careful! I don't want to drive! And by the looks of it I might have too..." She smiled and the laughing died down.
I sighed. "What am I going to do in a few weeks Nicole?" I asked.
"What do you mean?" She asks.
"I mean this!" I point to my stomach. "She's due in a few weeks...I have no idea what to do...I need to get a house to live in..because I doubt my mum wants to be woken up by screaming and crying...I mean that's why she stopped having kids!" I smiled, she nodded.
"Yeah I'll help you find somewhere..." My face lightened.
"Really!? You will!"
She nodded, "yes! Absolutely!"
I smiled, "but here's the thing...I have no money whatsoever...I need to get a job. I need to get a job, Nicole! But I can't leave her alone with a babysitter! Me an Harry would both be working! And I have school for two more months!"
She nodded, "life can be hard babes...but we'll get through it!"
I nodded, "thank you so much."
She looked confused, "for what?" She asked.
"For being my friend. For staying with me through this. For everything you've ever done to help me."
She smiled, "it was no problem!"
I rolled my eyes, "my ass it was no big problem..." I mumbled. She smirked and continued to drive.
"Have you ever heard the boys sing?" I asked.
"Mhm." She hummed and turned the car.
"When?" I asked.
"I've always liked their music.." My eyes widened.
"Why didn't you tell me?" I asked.
"I did..." She said obviously.
"Oh...I might've zoned out then.."
She nodded, "ya think so?" She said with sarcasm. We sat in silence until I heard a familiar tune come through the radio and I turned it up high. Well not to high because it might hurt the baby's ears. If that's possible?
I heard the familiar sound of Zayn's voice.
"Cole! It's the boys! It's kiss you!" I shouted.
"Yeah, know! You sound like those teenagers on the Internet who freak out at their every move." I laughed.
"I do! I mean Harry's." I winked at her and Harry's voice came on. The baby started kicking my stomach.
"Cole I think she recognizes Harry's voice!" I smiled, she continued to kick with the song.
"Every time we to-ou-ch you get this kinda ru-u-sh baby say yeah, yeah, yeahhh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
If you don't wanna take it slow, and you just wanna take me home baby say yeah yeah yeahhh yeah yeah and let me kiss you!" I sang along with the radio.
When the song ended she stopped kicking. "I think she liked that song..." I said and giggled.
"Did you know they're having a live band for prom." Nicole said.
"Really? Do you know who?" I asked.
"No...it's a secret they say." I nodded. I wonder who it could be...
Nicole stopped in front of this small building and we both got out. She walked ahead of me because she knows where she's going. We walked up a flight of stairs and walked through a brightly colored door. Once we walked in I was hit with fumes of nail polish and hair gels.
"Hi Susie!" Nicole said and went up to a desk with a small middle aged woman.
"Hi Nicole! I believe you made an appointment is that correct?" She nodded.
"Yes it'll be for two. Me and my friend Dylan." She waved for me to come over. I walked over.
"Hello! I'm Susie! Nice to meet you Dylan!" She smiles and looks at my stomach. "Are you pregnant?" She asks, I nodded.
"Congratulations!! Boy or girl?"
I smiled, "a baby girl."
She smiled, "well here." She hands me a small bottle of pink nail polish.
"When she's old enough to where it."
I smiled, "thank you!"
"It's not a problem my dear." She walked over to a chair. "Who's first?" She asks.
"Dylan is!" Nicole beams. I went over to Susie and sat in the chair.
"So what color do you want your nails, honey?" She asked.
"Prom is tonight and I wanted something to match my dress..."
She nodded, "I completely understand! What color is your dress?" She asked.
"It's uh a very simple black dress." I stated. She nodded then smiled.
"I can already imagine it now! Since its just simple, I'm going use simple colors on them! Want your toes done too?" I nodded.
"So I'm going to use this brilliant black glitter polish...but first I'm going to clean up your nails to make them shine more." I smiled then nodded. She put one of my hands in a bowl of water then rubbed nail polish remover on my other nails. She then used a nail filer to even my nails. She also pushed down my cuticles. She did the same with my other hand and then she did my toes. After she was done she put on this clear coat of nail polish then went over to get the glitter nail polish. She tested it on paper to show me what it would look like after she's finished.
I smiled, "oh wow Susie! That's beautiful!! That'll look so good!!"
She smiled, "I'm glad you like it!" She went away putting it on my nails. I looked up and over to where Nicole was standing. She wasn't there anymore. I looked around to see her sitting at a table with another person getting her nails done. I looked back to Susie watching her do my nails.
"So going with anyone to prom?" Susie asked.
"Uh yeah actually yes I am!" I smiled at the thought.
"Oh really? What's his name? Or her..." I laughed.
"It's a he! And his name is Ha-....uh I don't know if I can tell you his name..." I said, she frowned.
"Why not? I won't tell anyone!" I smiled at her childish reaction.
"Alright, you can't tell anyone! Promise?"
She nodded and looked up at me, "promise!" I nodded and she went back to painting.
"Well, do you know the band One Direction?" I asked, she stopped painting.
"Oh yes! My niece is a big, big fan!" She said, I smiled.
"Well Harry Styles from that band is going with me...and Nicole over there she's going with Niall Horan from the band also." She nodded understanding.
"So is Harry your baby daddy also?" She asked, I sighed.
"Uh...I don't really know yet..." She nodded.
"I understand completely with that..." I looked at her confused.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"I mean I was in the same situation as you when I was your age...I was scared and I didn't know who her dad was...but I got through it and know she's a beautiful hard working sixteen year old."
"Wow that sounds challenging! So how old are you thirty-four then?"
She nodded, "it was tough but in the end it was worth it.." She smiled and wiped a tear that left her eye.
"Susie whats wrong?" I asked.
"Well it's just...that we got in a fight a few weeks ago...and she moved away from me...I just couldn't handle it...she's all I had...I mean my mum actually didn't want me around anymore after she was born. I'm just afraid that I'll never see her again...and I'm worried about her." I put my hand on her shoulder.
"It'll be alright, hon. She'll come back to you...I know it." She smiled.
"Thank you Dylan...I can tell you'll be a wonderful mother...and if you need help I'm here." I smiled and nodded. She looked up at me then stood up.
"All done!" She smiled, I stood up and looked at my fingers and toe nails.
"They are absolutely gorgeous! How much?" I asked taking my wallet out of my purse.
"Nothing...it's free!" She said, I looked at her in disbelief.
"You're kidding me! I owe you at least something!" I argued.
"Yes, you owe me a picture of that baby once she's born!" I smiled.
"Oh alright! But take this.." I took twenty pounds out of my wallet.
"Fine...but no more!"
I nodded, "thanks again!" She smiled.
"It was no problem!" I waved and walked over to Nicole.
"Ready?" I asked, she nodded.
"But let me see your nails first!" I laughed, and showed them.
"They are so pretty!!!" Nicole gushed.
"Glad you like them! Show me yours!" She held up her hands. They were like mine but hers were white glitter instead of black.
"Matches our dresses!" She gushed, I nodded.
"Sure does!" I said, she took my hand.
"Where are we going?" I asked.
"To get our hair done!"
Here we go again...
