Sarah's POV

I fluttered my eyes open and looked at the clock. 9:15am. Not bad. My eyes were still heavy but I couldn't fall back asleep. I looked over to Clare, she looked hilarious. She was laying on her back. Her right arm was above her head and her left arm was clenching the duvet. Her facial expression was the best. Her mouth was open and her hair stood up all over the place. Being the amazing sister I am, I grabbed my phone and took a picture of her. I laughed and contemplated posting it somewhere. But, with her being the one most talked about, I decided against it. She was still sleeping and I was super bored. I unlocked my phone again and went on twitter. Oh my god. I gained over a thousand followers over night. I had so many tweets from others. "@sarahsampson is Clare your sister?" "@sarahsampson you are soo lucky, can you get me a picture?(:" "@sarahsampson are @clare_sampson70 and @harry_styles together? Please let us know!! Dying over here!" Another one just popped up, "@claresampson tell your sister that she's an ugly slut and to get away from Harry. He's way too good for her. Thanks.(:" Wow. The nerve of that girl. She's just jealous. I heard some yelling from downstairs. What's going on? I slowly crept out of bed and sat on the top of the stairs so whoever was yelling couldn't see me. I heard my parents voices.
"Is it true, or is it not?" My mom yelled in a hurt voice.
"I told you already, it's not true!" My dad answered in a rough voice.
"Are you sure? Because there's pictures of her leaving our house! She even gave a statement saying that you two were intimate!" She cried loudly.
"Honey, please." He begged.
"I can't believe this." My mom mumbled. "After the rumors, I didn't know what to believe, and I still don't. I stayed because I loved you, and I still do. But I'm not sure if you love me too." She was crying.
"But I do love you. I always have, always will." He tried to convince her.
"Are you sure? Because sometimes I doubt that, we aren't the same as we were! Think of the kids, Richard! Think of Clare, she changed when she found out about this. SHe's gone through so much and we're not helping her get through it! You've barely been a father to her and Sarah and Luke too!" my mom yelled.
"Please, just give me another chance. I'm still the same me that I've always been." He cried.
"Fine. But if anything happens again, your out of here." I heard my mom walk away from him.
I felt my eyes swell up in tears. When did this happen? Is this why Clare left? My brain felt like it was going to explode. I got up and slowly crept back to Clare's room and his myself under her duvet and cried.
I heard Clare moan sleepily next to me. I slowed my sobs and tried to hide my sniffles.
She yawned. "Sarah?" She asked and took the duvet away from my head, "Are you, crying?"
"Is it true?" I couldn't hide my sobs any longer.
"Is what true?" She looked me in the eye.
"Did dad," I paused, "Did he cheat on Mom?"
She looked down, "I don't know. I don't know what to believe."
"When did this happen?" I asked her.
"A couple years ago. Remember when mom took us on vacation to England for a few weeks? Well it was then, she needed to get us away from the publicity. You were too young to understand what was going on, and Luke was just a couple years old." She looked at me sadly.
I nodded and snuggled myself back in her duvet. She ripped the blanket off of me.
"Come on, get up, get dressed."
"I'm going to cheer you up. Now come on, we are going somewhere."
"Where?" I wondered.
"It's a surprise." She winked at me and nudged me to get out of bed. "Remember, wear something comfy because we're playing soccer later." She reminded me.
"Okay," I left her room and headed for mine. I went and brushed my snarly hair. My hair is naturally straight so I didn't have to do anything to it. I looked for some athletic shorts and a t-shirt. I slipped on my athletic sandals too. I put a hair band around my wrist and headed back to Clare's room.
"Ready?" She asked when she saw me. She was braiding her naturally wavy hair into a perfect side braid. "Oh, go grab your soccer bag. We are bringing that with."
I headed back into my room to grab my bag and once again went back to Clares room. She handed me her cleats.
"Can you shove those in there for me?"
I nodded and took the cleats. She lead me out of the room and went down to the kitchen where our parents were awkwardly sitting in silence.
"Hey mom," Clare asked, "Is it ok if I take Sarah out for the day? You know a little bonding time?"
Mom looked over at Dad who nodded. "Sure, be back by dinner at 6. You want some breakfast?" She asked.
"No, we're eating out." Clare answered.
"You need a car?" My dad asked her.
"No, I think we're ok."
My dad gave her a weird look, "Uh, okay?"
We said our good byes and Clare lead me to the back door.
"Why are we going to the beach and why aren't we using the car? Don't we need to drive to the park?" I asked in a confused manor.
"Just be patient." She walked down the steps of the deck and onto the beach and took a right and started walking down the beach towards our neighbors house.
"Why are we going to our neighbors?" I asked.
"Oh, I thought you knew, but One Direction is staying there for the summer." she said casually.
"Are you kidding me?!" I said excitedly, "They've been living here and you didn't tell me?"
"I thought you knew. C'mon, the beach, me walking over to their house, how far away did you think I walked?" She asked sounding like I was stupid.
"I guess I never put it together," I admitted.
I can't believe that Clare was taking me to One Direction's house! Okay, deep breaths. Deep breaths. Calm down. I was shaking from excitement. I was about to meet my favorite band again.
"Just remember," Clare warned, "No screaming, no fangirling, they are just 5 normal guys who happen to be extremely talented and famous."
I nodded. We just reached their portion of the beach and Clare lead the way up the stairs of their deck. They had an amazing pool, hot tub, and out door cabana. Clare just opened up the screen door and walked inside, she didn't even knock. Wow. I am so lucky to have Clare as my sister. I heard some rustling from the kitchen.
"Hellooooo?" Clare called out loudly. This house was huge, like as big as ours and that's saying something.
"Jesus, Clare. You've gotta tell me when your coming so I can put pants on!" Niall shouted back.
I laughed outloud.
"Sorry Niall, I'll let you know next time!" She yelled to him.
"I'm going upstairs, I'll meet you in the kitchen." He told her.
Clare lead me to the kitchen. It was also big. I saw a bowl of cereal on the counter. My eyes got huge. That is Niall Horan's bowl of cereal. I am in Niall Horan's house. I am standing in the exact spot where One Direction has once stood. I felt my breathing increase.
"Calm down," Clare whispered. We heard footsteps come down the stairs, I turned expecting to see Niall. But, it wasn't him. It was Liam. Liam Payne. The Liam Payne, from One Direction. I felt my eyes widen.
"Hey Clare, Niall told me you were here." He greeted, "Oh, hey Sarah." He said casually and went to the fridge.
Liam Payne just said hi to me. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Say something, you idiot.
"Uh, h- hi." I smiled like an idiot.
He laughed quietly at my expression, "Why hello there. You want any juice?"
I looked at Clare who wasn't paying any attention and then back to Liam.
"Uh, sure." I explained.
"Is orange ok?" He asked while grabbing it out of the fridge.
"Yeah, that's great."
I watched as he poured me a glass of orange juice. Liam is getting me juice. I will never forget this day in my life.
Just then I heard more footsteps coming down the stairs. I turned to see who it was. A head of blonde hair came in to the kitchen and went right to his cereal.
He sat down at the counter and dug into his cereal.
"Oh I didn't know Sarah was here too." He said, "Hey," he said to me with a mouthful of cereal, "How ya doing?" I could feel my cheeks blush, luckily he was too busy eating to notice.
"Uh, good I guess." I said honestly. Liam handed me my juice.
"Why you guess?" Liam asked me.
"Uh, it's nothing." I mumbled.
"Er," Clare said to the guys, "Sarah had a bad morning so I brought her over here to get her out of the house and to cheer her up."
I looked down at my feet.
"So, Sarah, did you eat breakfast yet?" Niall asked.
"No, not yet." I answered.
"So how about some pancakes, that sound good?" Liam asked in his amazing accent.
"Pancakes sound amazing." I smiled at him. These guys are so sweet.
"Where's everyone else?" Clare asked.
"Lou is skyping Eleanor and Zayn and Harry are still sleeping." Liam said while getting the batter out.
Eleanor. Eleanor Calder. Oh my god. This is so cool. I am so lucky.
"What's the bag for?" Liam nodded towards the bag in my hand.
"Oh, we're playing soccer later." I informed.
"Sounds like fun!" Liam exclaimed.
"You excited for Robby Brown?" Clare asked them.
Niall had a mouthful of food, "I guess so, all interviews are usually fun. Are we performing?"
"Management said something about that, I'm not sure for certain but I would assume so."
"You guys are going on Robby Brown?!" I asked excitedly.
"Apparently, but we just found out yesterday." Liam answered as he was flipping pancakes.
"When?" I questioned.
"Tuesday," he put a couple pancakes on a plate and handed them to me.
"Thanks," I said as I walked over to the counter and sat down next to Niall. I laughed at him as he was eating.
"What?" He asked me.
"You've got milk all over your mouth," I giggled.
"Haha, thanks." He wiped it off with his arm.
I grabbed the syrup and drenched my pancakes in it.
"You want some pancakes with that syrup?" Clare asked me while laughing.
"Hey, syrup is the best part!" I laughed.
"I like the way you think." Niall added in his amazing accent.
I smiled at him. So far, this is like the best day ever.
Louis walked into the kitchen, he still head bed head and it was incredibly hot.
My day just got better.
"Oh, hey guys, I didn't know you were here." Louis said.
"Pancakes?" Liam asked.
"Sounds great." Louis said as he dished himself up some pancakes and sat right next to me at the counter.
My god. I was sitting in between Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson. My idols. I looked at Clare who was talking to Liam about something.
"Can you pass the syrup?" I heard Louis say.
I looked at him, "Yeah, sure." I smiled and gladly passed him the syrup. He also drenched his pancakes in syrup.
"See, Clare, I'm not the only one here that loves syrup!" I announced.
"The syrup is the best part!" Louis exclaimed.
"That's exactly what I said!" He laughed and I laughed along. These boys are great. No wonder they have millions of fans. And I'm hanging out with 3/5 of them right now. Deep breaths. Calm down, I promised Clare I wouldn't overreact.
"Harry and Zayn still sleeping?" Niall asked Louis.
"Zayn is, Harry's up but still in his room."
"Does he know Clare's here?"Niall asked.
"Probably not," Louis told, "considering he's not down here."
"Yeah," Niall chuckled, "If he knew Clare was here, he'd be the one making breakfast."
All the guys laughed.
"Hey, knock it off." Clare laughed.
"It's true though! You've gotta admit." Liam added.
Clare laughed and blushed.
"What's the bag for?" Louis asked when he saw my soccer bag on the counter.
"Oh, Clare and I are playing soccer later."
"You play?" He asked.
"Yup." I smiled.
"Can I come?" He asked me, "I love soccer!"
I looked over at Clare who shrugged as in saying it was up to me.
"Of course you can come!" I said, "But only if you're not afraid of me kicking your butt!"
"Oooh," Louis smirked, "Sounds like a challenge."
"Do you except the challenge?" I laughed.
"I always love a good challenge." He winked and took another bite of his pancakes.
"I'm gonna go get Harry." Clare announced.
"Awwww," Louis gushed.
"Shut up." She nudged his arm as she walked past him.
"What's going on with them?" I asked as soon as she walked away.
"Uh, not sure exactly." Liam answered.
"Yeah, we were hoping you could tell us the answer to that question." Niall told me.
"Well, I unfortunately cant." I shrugged my shoulders and continued to eat my pancakes.

Clare's POV
I made my way up the wide staircase to reach Harry's room. His door was shut. I was about to knock but then I heard voices coming from inside.
"Can you hear me?" Harry asked.
"Yeah, you?" a muffled voice answered in a British accent.
"Yeah, so how's the tour?" Harry asked.
"It's good, I've met a lot of people. Too bad you couldn't come with us."
"Yeah, would've been fun but we needed a break." Harrys responded.
I felt bad about listening in so I finally decided to knock.
"Come in!" Harry yelled.
"Who's there?" the other voice asked as I opened the door.
"Clare? What are you doing here?" He asked.
"What, you not happy to see me?" I joked as I walked over to him.
"No, I just was't expecting you." He smiled.
"Sure," I laughed.
"Who you talking to?" I asked him.
"Oh, come here, I want you to meet a friend of mine." Harry waved me over.
I looked over to the computer screen and saw who Harry was talking to. It was Ed Sheeran. You couldn't mistake his bright red hair.
"Oh my god. You're Ed Sheeran." I said excitedly, "I'm a big fan!"
He chuckled. "Why thank you! So your the infamous Clare that I've heard about?"
I looked at Harry who just shrugged. "Uh, i guess?" I laughed awkwardly.
"How long have you been here?" Harry asked me.
"Hour maybe?"
"And you now just tell me that you're here?"
"If it makes you feel any better, Sarah's here too." I shrugged.
"Who's Sarah?" Ed asked over the computer.
"She's my sister, who if she found out I was talking to you would probably die." I laughed.
He smiled, "Well I'm glad that I've got so many amazing fans."
"Why is she here?" Harry asked me.
"She had a bad morning, I'll explain later and I thought we'd stop here before we went out for the day." I explained.
"Would you mind if I'd accompany the two of you?" Harry smiled cheekily.
"Sure, Louis is already coming," I laughed.
Ed's phone started ringing on the other end, "Ill talk to you later Harry, I've gotta take this. Nice meeting you Clare!" He ended the call.
"Why is Louis coming?" Harry asked with a confused look on his face.
"Because Sarah invited him." I laughed.
"Ahh, I see."
"Yeah..." I said slowly.
"So why the bad morning?" He asked.
I was hesitant to tell him.
"Remember the youtube video you opened yesterday about my dad?"
He nodded guiltily.
"Well, she found out about it."
"How?" He asked, his eyes sincere.
"I didn't ask, but it was strange because when we went downstairs and told them that we were leaving, they were totally cool with it. My dad even offered me his car. He would never do that." I explained.
"Oh, I'm sorry." He apologized.
"You've gotta stop saying sorry for situations that you're not involved in." I informed with a smile.
"Sorry," he laughed.
"Stop that!"
"Fine, I just won't say anything then!"
"That's gonna be hard. You can't ever stop talking." I said.
"Coming from you.." he mumbled.
"And what was that, Mr. Styles?" I picked up a pillow.
"Nothing," he smirked.
I whacked him across the face with a pillow.
"Hey! Not the curls! They can not be damaged!" He yelled.
I leaped over to him and ran my hands all over his curls. He tried to tackle me, but I was too quick. I ran out his door and headed for the stairs.
"Clare, you're going down!" He chased after me.
"Never!" I squealed and ran to the kitchen where everyone still was. I ran behind Liam.
"You touched the curls?" He asked.
"How'd you know?" I panted.
"Just a guess." He laughed.
Harry came running into the kitchen. Louis jumped out of his chair and blocked me from Harry, "No one touches my Clare Bear!" He declared with a large smile.
"Oh yeah?" Harry smirked at me.
"Yeah!" I yelled. "Louis will protect me!"
Harry ran away into the living room and came back with 2 light sabers. He threw the blue one to Lou while Harry kept the red one. "Defend yourself." Harry said.
"You're going down." Louis declared.
I glanced at Sarah who was cracking up.
Harry and Louis were in a full out war with lightsabers, running around in the kitchen. All of a sudden Louis hit Harry's leg.
"Ow, I've been hit!"
"Yes, your leg has been chopped!" Louis shouted.
Harry shrieked and lifted his leg up and continued to fight on his one leg.
I started cracking up, I took out my phone and continued to record this. They were running around the kitchen, Harry jumping on one leg. They were clanking their light sabers together. Harry got a chance so he poked Louis is the chest with his.
"It went right through me!" Louis cried and fell to the ground. Harry laughed evilly and stood right over him, hovering his light saber over his. Louis was making choking sounds. Harry lifted his light saber up over his head and sliced it down very fast towards his neck, but stopped as soon as it reached a couple inches above Louis' throat. He slowly pretended to slice his neck with the light saber. Louis stuck his tongue out of his mouth, pretending to be dead. Harry dropped his weapon, put both fists in the air, and shouted "VICTORY IS MINE!" He ran up to me, grabbed my waist and draped me over his shoulder. He ran over to the living room. The video was still recording so I stopped it.
"You know, your leg is chopped off, you're not supposed to be on it." I teased as he threw me on the couch.
"Would you rather me fall when I'm running with you on my shoulder?" He asked sarcastically.
"Very well, you may have your leg back." I laughed as he nodded.
We were both sitting on the couch. I pulled out my phone and started to watch the video, I started to burst out laughing once again.
"What are you doing?" He asked as the video ended.
"What does it look like I'm doing? I'm posting it to twitter." I tagged all the boys and Sarah and tweeted it.
We heard laughter coming from the kitchen. "Great video Clare!" Niall shouted.
We heard foot steps coming down the stairs.
"You guys are all really loud!" Zayn shouted grumpily.
"Aww, wake up on the wrong side of the bed Zayn?" I heard Louis ask.
"Shush, Louis. It's still early," Zayn whined.
"Zayn, it's like 11 o' clock." Liam told him.
"Exactly. Where's Harry and Clare?" Zayn asked them.
"In here!" I shouted.
Harry started laughing. "So when we leaving?" Harry asked me.
"When ever your ready." I answered.
"Well, I'm ready now," He shrugged and got up off the couch. He held out his hand for me which I happily grabbed.
I let go of his hand as soon as I was off of the couch. His face showed a pang of disappointment. I giggled.
"What now?" he whined.
"You looked sad that I let go of your hand." I smirked.
"What? Never." He said sarcastically.
We made our way into the kitchen. Zayn's hair was once agin gelled up.
"Aw Zayn, I thought we talked about this." I walked up to him.
"Talked about what?"
"How all of this," I motioned to his hair with my hands, "Should stay natural. Really, it's a good look for you." I smiled.
"Yeah, the day Zayn wears his hair natural is the day Harry will stop walking around naked." Louis smirked.
"You what?"I laughed out loud.
Harry gave Louis a look, "Well, yes. I like to feel free! Feel free to join me." He winked at me.
I shook my head with a smirk, "Harry you naughty boy!"
Sarah started cracking up.
After the laughter died down I asked Sarah, "You ready to go?"
She nodded and got off the stool she was sitting on. "Louis you still coming?" Sarah asked.
"Of course I am, I need to kick your butt," He smirked playfully.
He also got up and headed for the car. Harry and I followed.
