“You want me to meet them?” I said, unsure of what he meant.
“Well, you know the band I’m in…right?”
“I’m not stupid Niall, yes of course I know of One Direction.” I said teasingly.
“Well, they’re my friends, and I want you to meet them sometime.” He said putting his feet up on the coffee table.
“I don’t know Niall…”
“What? Are you nervous to meet them?” He said smirking, teasing.
“Shut up Niall, I’m not nervous, but they’re…famous.”
“I’m famous!” Niall exclaimed, pointing to himself. “Don’t worry, it will be fine, they are used to fangirls.”
“I’m not a fangirl!” I said, punching him in the arm.
Niall held his arm, defensively. “Ouch! Jesus Jenny!” he said rubbing the spot where I smacked him. “It will be fine.”
“Okay.” I said getting up, Niall standing as well.
“Come on, I’ll show you to your room.” He said grabbing a couple of my bags and led me down the hall.
Niall rang the doorbell and knocked on the door. I suddenly felt extremely nervous. “Niall, I’m really scared that they won’t like me.”
“You’ll be fine Jenny. They will love you.” He said grabbing my hand like he did at the airport. Why the hell is he grabbing my hand? I didn’t let go, but still…
Liam opened the door with a smile on his face. “Oh hello! You must be Jenny!” He said coming at me and wrapping his arms around me in a hug.
“Nice to meet you Liam…” I said hugging him back briefly. After he let go, Niall led me inside to see the rest of the boys.
“Lads, this is Jenny, my best friend. We go way back.” Niall said smiling.
“Hi…” I said, taking a side step closer to Niall, feeling nervous again. Niall grabbed my hand and squeezed, reassuring me. I saw him smirk out of the corner of my eye as Harry stood up to greet me.
“Hello, Jenny.” Harry said, holding out his hand for me to shake. I took it quickly and smiled at him. Zayn stood up and greeted me, then Louis, all saying hello and smiling.
“So, what are you doing here in London?” Louis asked.
“I’m going to be going to the University of London.” I said, relaxing.
“What are you going to study?” Zayn asked, going to the cupboard for a glass.
“Art, she’s studying art.” Niall intervened.
“…Well what are you doing in art?” Zayn asked, probably wondering why Niall said anything…I was wondering too.
“Photography.” I said smiling at Zayn. He nodded approvingly, going back to his glass and filling it with water.
“What kind of photography?” Liam asked.
“Well, I’m not sure yet, but I just like taking pictures.” I said shrugging.
“Well, we could start your career off to a good start!” Liam said, walking over to me. “We could have a photoshoot and you could be the photographer. Sound good?” He said, wrapping his arm around my shoulder and smiling at me.
“Sounds good to me.” I said, smiling back.
Niall looked at Liam, and I wasn’t sure if he was glaring or if he was just trying to joke with him.
Harry stood up, breaking the silence. “Let’s get some food with our new friend, yeah?”
Zayn nodded, opening the door for everyone. Niall pushed Liam to the door so he could be next to me, leading me to the car.
We got to a local restaurant, waiting at the door for there to be an open table for six people. When there was an open table, the waitress led us around the corner to the back; I went to sit down when Liam asked if he could sit next to me.
“Wait, no I want to sit next to her,” Niall said, pouting a little bit. “She’s my best friend.”
“Well, she’s our new friend and I want a chance to get to know her, so I want to sit next to her.” Liam said putting his hands on his hips.
“You can both sit next to me if I sit in the middle.” I said, smirking. One Direction boys fighting over each other to sit next to me? Score…
We sat down to dinner, ordering what we wanted and waited for our food. When the food came, I began chowing down until I felt a sharp pain in my hands; and fingers. I leaned back in my chair, no longer hungry, trying to massage my hands so they would stop hurt. Why do they hurt? This is weird…
Harry looked across the table at me, concerned. “You alright?” He asked.
“Yeah, I just don’t think I’m hungry anymore.” I said, reaching for my glass of water and sipped it.
Harry nodded. “Alright, if you say so.”
Everyone finished eating, and Liam drove us all back to Louis’ flat. We all stood outside, talking.
“Niall?” I said weakly.
“What is it?” Niall asked, furrowing his eyebrows.
“Can we go home? I don’t feel all too good.” I said; my head was pounding and my stomach was in a knot; my fingers continued to tighten up and ache.
“Of course.” Niall said leading me over toward the edge of the sidewalk.
“You’re leaving?” Louis asked. Liam was running toward us; he obviously had overheard what I said.
“Yeah, I don’t feel so good.” I said.
Liam pouted, holding out his arms and hugging me. “I hope you feel better Jenny.”
I looked over at Niall, who looked at Liam impatiently. He grabbed my hand and pulled lightly so Liam would let go. “We’ve got to get you to bed, you look a little pale.”
I waved to everyone, saying my goodbyes as Niall led me to the car. As he started driving toward his flat, I felt a little better. I don’t know what has been wrong with me lately, I get these random pains all the time, but they seem so much worse now…I wonder why.
