Stole My Heart

Leah's dreams were coming true. She's made it onto the X-Factor, and she was going places. The last thing she imagined would happen was that Niall Horan from One Direction would ask her out. Suddenly, her life is turned upside down as love, heartbreak, ex-boyfriends, distance, and complications stress their relationship to the max. Can they overcome everything?



1. Dreams

Leah’s POV:

I can’t believe I’m actually here. I never actually thought I’d make it. 19 years old, and I made it onto X-Factor. Now I’m sitting inside Simon Cowell’s house. I’m actually here.This is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I heard a woman’s voice call my name, knocking me off my train of thought. They’re ready for me. I shakily got to my feet, brushed my hair out of my face, and straightened my shirt. I took a deep breath, trying to calm my racing heart, but it wasn’t working. My heart pounding a million times a minute, my breath caught in my chest. I was so nervous.Calm down, Leah. You can do this.I told myself sternly. I cautiously started walking towards the door. It was time to face Simon, and my mentor.

I walked towards where I was directed in the yard, and as I got closer I made out who was sitting with Simon. I stopped dead when recognition hit me. Sitting with Simon was Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan. The members of One Direction. I forced myself out of my daze and walked forwards instead of turning around and leaving. My heart started racing even faster than before, and I felt like it was about to explode out of my chest. I slowly came to a stop and just looked at the boys in front of me, Simon with a grin on his face, trying not to laugh at my face, and the rest of the boys smiling sweetly at me. Louis was the first to stand and introduce himself, even though it wasn’t needed. “Hello! I’m Louis, congratulations!” he said, shaking my hand. The rest of the boys followed suit, shaking my hand and introducing themselves, with the exception of Harry, who pulled me into a warm hug. Then, Niall turned to face me and acted as if he was about to hug me, but awkwardly pulled back and extended his hand with a shy smile on his face, his ocean blue eyes looking towards the ground. I giggled and just looked around at the boys standing around me. WHAT IS LIFE. I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS. Is all my brain seemed to be able to think. I was standing there smiling and awestruck until Simon cleared his throat.

“If you all are done fraternizing and flirting, I do think we should get started.” I blushed a deep scarlet and sat down. Simon started giving me feedback on my audition and how the rest of the show could go for me, but I could feel eyes on me the entire time. I peeked up and saw Niall staring intently at me. When I caught him staring, he quickly turned his head, and I did the same, blushing again. We finished our meeting and Simon dismissed me to go back. As I was headed back I could hear someone running up behind me. I turned around to see Niall racing to catch up to me. I stopped dead in my tracks, unable to move. He stopped next to me and just stood there for a second. “So uhmm…would you like to go out to dinner or go see a movie with me or something tonight..?” He asked nervously, running his hand through his blonde hair and looking at the ground.

I started grinning like an idiot and rapidly nodding my head. “I would love to!” I said, maybe a bit too enthusiastically.

Niall looked at me, grinning from ear to ear. “Great! I’ll call you in a few hours?” He said as we exchanged numbers.

He quickly hugged me, and ran back to the other boys, and I couldn’t stop smiling. Niall Horan from One Direction just asked me out on a date, I was on X-Factor, and everything I could have ever hoped for was coming true.
