A Different Kind Of Normal

My name is Flora. Flora Atkin. I am a normal twelve year old girl. Well, that is, if normal were traveling around the world with one of the most famous boybands in history. My mom, Lou Teasedale, is One Direction's stylist, and Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry, and Zayn are like my older brothers. The boys are living their dreams and I'm just lucky enough to come along for the ride. What happens when my best friend, Annabell, and I get the opportunity of a life time: the opportunity to be part of the boys' dream? Read along to find out!


5. Breakfast and Confessions


*the next day*

I woke up in the queen bed I was sharing with Annabell. I looked at my phone and read the time. 10:06am. I looked around me and noticed that El, Dani, and Perrie weren’t in their beds. The only person still asleep was Annabell. I got up and walked over to the desk in the room. Sitting in the middle was a note: Gone to breakfast with everyone else. Come downstairs when readyJ -Perrie, El, and Dani. I woke Annabell up, got ready, and headed down to the hotel restaurant with her. We looked around and soon enough, spotted the group. We walked over to the table and sat down in the only two seats available. I sat between My dad and Lux while Annabell sat next to Dani and Harry. “Hey girls. We just got down about fifteen minutes ago.” Stated my dad. “Kay, have you ordered food, yet?” Annabell asked. “Nope it’s buffet-styled. We were waiting for you.” El said. “Well they’re here now, let’s go!” Niall said, getting up. We ate breakfast and talked about what we would do that day. The boys didn’t have rehearsals or anything because we had only flown in the night before, so Louis, Liam, and Zayn were planning to spend the day with El, Dani, and Perrie. That left my parents, Lux, Paul, Niall, Harry, Annabell and I. Paul was planning on heading to the gym and my parents told us that they were going to walk around the town and take Lux with them. Now it was down to Harry, Niall, Annabell, and I. “How about we go to the top of the Empire State Building?” Niall offered. “Yeah, the view is awesome!” Harry agreed, “Wanna come with us, girls?” He asked. “Sure!” We agreed. We pulled over a taxi and told the driver where to take us. When we got to the Empire State Building, he looked back at us. “Hey, haven’t I seen you two boys somewhere?” He asked. “Nope. I don’t think so.” Niall lied. We didn’t want people to notice us. “Yes I have…Oh my God, are you those boys from that band One Direction?” He didn’t let the boys answer. He was sure he was right. “My daughter is obsessed with you! I’m taking her to your concert in two days! She even makes me carry around a photo of you so that I can remember your names!” He pulls out a photo of the guys from a recent magazine and looks at it. Then he looks back up at Niall and Harry. “So you must be…Harry, and Niall?” “Yes we are. Thank you for taking your daughter to our show. We can’t wait.” Harry says, trying to make it quick. “Wait, before you go, can I have your autographs for my daughter? It would mean a lot.” “Sure.” The boys say, autographing the photo with a pen the driver handed them. We get out of the taxi, with the driver shouting ‘thank yous’ out the window, and walked into the Empire State Building. After paying for a trip to the top, we leave and get into the elevator. “Flora, what’s wrong?” Niall asked me. I hadn’t noticed that I had been standing really close to him. “I’m nervous.” I replied. “For what?” He asked. “I am terrified of heights.” I whisper. “It’s okay.” He whispered back, “Me, Harry, and Anna are here for you.” As I feel the elevator’s speed escalate, Niall starts to rub my back, relaxing me a bit. I wrap my arms around him and after a few minutes, I hear a ding, indicating that we had reached the top. Getting off the elevator, I put my hand in Niall’s. He looks back at me, but doesn’t say anything. He just squeezes it and pulls me closer. “Niall I’m scared.” I say as my panic starts to really set in. He squeezes my hand harder and says, “I won’t let go Flora. I’m here for you.” I can see Harry and Annabell heading out a door, to go look at the city below them. “You promise?” I ask Niall. “Promise, Flora.” “Okay, then I’m ready.” He slowly leads me to the same door I saw Annabell and Harry exit from. I swear, watching Niall push open that door was probably the most nerve-racking moment of my entire life. When we are outside, I can feel the wind pick up and I look around me. “You’re doing it, Flora!” Niall’s encouraging words are literally what make me take the next step. And the next. He keeps encouraging me until we are standing about six inches away from the wall of the building. I slowly peer my head out just a bit, until I am looking down at the city below. “Niall, I’m doing it!” I shout! Harry and Annabell come running over and Annabell hugs me. I let go of Niall’s hand as she tells me she’s proud of me. When she retracts from the hug, I immediately reach for Niall’s hand again. “Flora, you’re doing it. You don’t need my hand.” He says, but gives his hand to me anyways, knowing he promised and I’m still nervous. Ever since I had met the boys two and a half years ago, Niall and I had had a kind of connection. I don’t really know exactly how to explain it but I have always been able to talk with Niall about anything. When I need someone to talk to, he’s always there for me, and he relaxes me when I’m scared or nervous. I feel closer to him than any of the other boys. Plus, his hugs are the best. After the Empire State, we go to a pizza place close by for lunch. After that experience, I was so hungry that I ate almost as much as Niall! We walked around for a bit and decided to head back to the hotel to swim.


Kay guys, as you can see, I have published quite a few chapters since last night. Also, this is my favorite chapter so far in my story, so please don't hate! I am also kind of a Niall girl, so I just couldn't help but incorporate that part in. Please comment what you think so far and if you have any ideas I wouldn't mind hearing them:) Thanks. Xx
