23. Date, can't wait.
"Lu, are you ready ? It's 10.45, we have to go." I heard Louis scream from the kitchen. I quickly took my turquoise Toms and ran downstairs. "Let's go. I'll see you later, Harry." Louis opened the door and I was about to get out when Harry grabbed my arm and kissed my cheek. "Want to do something after the interviews. We can go watch a movie or have dinner." It was sweet of him to actually care so much about me. "I would prefer if we do something in the building, you know. I want it to be just us, not with a million people reading about us the next day." He agreed. "We can go for a swim." That was actually a good idea. "Okay, lovebirds. You'll go buy a swimsuit, don't show to much skin ! And you'll go prepare yourself for the interviews. Lest go NOW !" Louis was getting impatient. I quickly kissed Harry's cheek and left.
"Nathalie, it's me." I yelled so she could here me. "Coming." She opened the door. She was wearing a cute outfit. Some pink shorts, with a flower printed top. "Louis is waiting in the car. Lets go." We walked over to the car. I went in next to Louis as Nathalie went in the back. "Hey Louis. Thank you for driving us." " No problem. So where is he taking you ?" She looked surprised but glared at me. "She didn't tell me anything but it's Niall, you know. Everyone had realized he fancies you." She looked down with a little smile. A few minutes later we had arrived and stepped out of the car. I kissed Louis' cheek and thanked him before leaving.
"Do you want to eat first or do a couple of stores ?" "Euh... Well it's 11.30 so why don't we do a couple of stores till we get bored and then go eat. Do you have anything to buy ?" "Actually I do. I'm Going swimming with Harry later. Maybe you could help me pick a bikini." I didn't really know what to say. I never had a girl friend before and I wasn't use to it. I really liked Nathalie and she seemed to like me too so I was happy. "Sure I'd love to. Lets go." We went into a couple of stores and tried a hundred of clothes. I think she tried 50 different dresses. She looked good in everything but Niall had said it would be fancy. What was weird cause when I met him, I figured he was very normal, All of them but he really looked like the guy-next-door. A really hot guy-next-door. So after an hour of not finding anything we decided to go in a cute cupcake café. We sat down and tasted the different cupcakes. "You told me you have a brother, Antoine, right ? Where is he ? I haven't met him yet." "Oh right, he's in Miami studying at FIU." She was a bit surprised. "Wow, that must be hard sometimes. When are you going to see him ?" She asked curiously. "I don't know. My mom's death anniversary is the day after tomorrow so I'm leaving tomorrow night for 2 days in Paris. I haven't talked to Antoine yet so I don't know if he's going. He told me that he would try to come but it's hard to leave, he has to study." I took a bite from the red velvet cupcake. "Did you tell Harry ?" Obviously she knew I hadn't. "Well... Actually I didn't... And you can't tell him either !" "Yeah but-" I cut her off. "Nathalie, please !" She was about to say something but just nodded. "Fine, so lets go fine you a hot bating suit." "And lets go find YOU a dress."
We went in the few stores we hadn't done. In the third store, we found her a beautiful dress that fitted her perfectly; in the next store we found her the perfect shoes to go with it and a clutch. I remembered having some accessories that would go with the dress. "Now it's your turn, let's go in that store." We went over into a bathing suit store. I was actually tired of shopping so I just looked around. "Come on, Lucy. Don't be so lazy." "I'm tired" I said laughing. She ran all over the store taking about ten different bikinis. "Go try them on." She pushed me into the changing room and closed the door before I could protest.
"You look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !" She said with a huge smile plastered on her face. "You told me that for the last five ones." "Yes but this one is THE one." She was so enthusiastic that it was cute. I ended up buying the one she had chosen, we then left and took the tube back home.
"Come over to mine, I guess it's easier." I had told her. She came in and saw that my flat wasn't really cleaned up yet. "So were you to busy with Harry to clean up ?" I didn't bother to answer. "Want something to drink ?" "No thanks. What time is it ? Niall will come and pick me up at 6." I looked over at the time on the oven. "It's 5.You should take a shower and then I'll help you with the rest." I pointed at the bathroom. "Sure thanks." She smiled and left the room. I went to the boxes and opened one that said summer clothes and took out a flower patterned dress and some sandals.
Some time later, Nathalie came out with a towel rapped around her and her hair on the side. "Let's dry your hair." I took the blow dryer that I had taken out earlier and brought it to the bathroom where she sat down on the bath. She dried her hair while I did a makeup. It was a very cute look, she wanted to stay very natural and that's what it was. Some brown eyeshadow with a black thin crayon line, some mascara, a bit of blush to accentuate her cheekbones and a light pink lipgloss to complete the look. "Perfect !" I almost screamed. "Wait let me see." She looked in the mirror and contemplated herself. Her hair fell down perfectly and her makeup was pretty well done. "Not bad." She said obviously joking. "Let's get dressed." I went to the living and took the four shopping bags. She took out her dress as I took out my new bikini and the dress I bought. She tried everything on, I gave her the accessories and she was done. Then I put on my outfit. My hair was tied in a braid so when I took it out, I had wavy hair. I let it fall at both side of my head. We were now both done. Nathalie and I went in front if the mirror and I have to say, we did look amazing. I was very happy. Nathalie looked gorgeous. The dress suited her amazingly well, as expected. "Oh... My... LORD ! Look at you, look at me ! Wow !" You could here at her screaming that she was happy. I smiled at her and then looked over at my watch. It was 5.52. She glanced at it too and started freaking out. "What if it doesn't go well ? What if he doesn't like me ?" "Nathalie, he liked you when he first saw you ! I saw it, Harry saw it and the lads saw it. There's no way ha won't like you now !" As I finished my sentence I heard I knocks on the doer. "Stay here and don't come before I call you." I went over and opened the door. "Hey, Nialler. How are you ?" "Good thanks, you ? You look very nice. Is Nathalie here ?" He was stressed, you could see it right away. He was talking way to fast that he could have actually chocked at the end of a sentence. "Thank you, you don look to bad yourself. And yes she is, are you ready to see the most beautiful girl ever." I said extremely loud. "I am." He had just finished his sentence when I yelled Nathalie's name. His facial expression changed from normal to surprised to ecstatic.
Lucy had opened the door and we had chatted for a couple of minutes but I couldn't get my thoughts off of to tonight, of Nathalie. I just wanted to see her. That's when I heard Lucy yell like crazy for Nathalie to come. I looked up and saw the door on the opposite of the room open. I saw this crazy beautiful girl getting out. If I didn't know better i would have thought she was a model or miss universe but no there she was. Nathalie. The girl I could say I was going on a date with. "Hi." She said looking down. "Hi. You look extremely beautiful." She lifted her head and her eyes lid up. I gently kissed her cheek. A smile appeared on her face and she answered. "You look very handsome yourself." "Thank you." "Awwwwww..." Lucy added getting both of us out of our moment. "Let's go." I said taking Nathalie's hand making her blush. "Take care of my bestie !" I heard Lucy scream with a very weird accent. "I will trust me." I laughed. "Have fun tonight, don't be to naughty !" Nathalie yelled making Lucy laugh. I had to ask her later what that was all about. Tonight was our date.
