1. The Perfect Date

Paige's POV- "Finally." I mumbled under my breath quietly. The last bell of the day rang to let us out of school. I grabbed my pink bag off of the floor and put everything that was on my desk, into my bag. I stood up and looked around for my best friend Sydney. She was at the other end of the classroom talking to our teacher about the assignment. While I waited, I slipped on my light blue jacket. It was the beginning of February, so it was still pretty chilly outside. Sydney finished talking to our teacher and walked over to me. "Ready?" I asked as she slung her purple bag over her right shoulder. She flipped her long brown hair off of her shoulder and nodded. We left the classroom and headed down the main hallway. It was crowded with yelling kids and with teachers trying to keep it all under control, but we made it through the madness and out the main doors. High school was challenging at times, but I loved it. I loved being around all of my friends and I loved learning about new things every single day. It was our senior year of high school. I was sad that it was all coming to an end so fast, but I was also really excited to go to college with Sydney. We walked down the steps of the high school and maneuvered our way around the many groups of students and teachers. We walked through the parking lot and got into my car. Sydney and I went to Starbucks everyday after school, ever since we got our drivers license. We had our own little routine. We would take turns driving each other to and from school and we would take turns on which house we would study and hangout at. We were blasting the music in my car really loudly while we drove to Starbucks. We sang loudly to Payphone as we pulled into the Starbucks parking lot. I turned off the car and we headed inside. There was a pretty long line ahead of us and we knew that we were going to be here for a while. "You wait here in line, while I hurry and go to the restroom." Sydney said while she slowly backed her way to where the restrooms were. I nodded and then she walked away. I pulled out my phone and texted my mom saying that I was going to be a little bit late coming home because of the line. I put my phone back into my pocket and then I felt someone bump into me from behind. I turned around and my eyes trailed up a tall, lean body and looked up into a pair of beautiful, ocean blue eyes. He was the most handsome guy I had ever seen in my life. "I'm so sorry. I don't know what happened. I guess I just tripped over my own feet again." He said quickly. I knew that he wasn't from here because he had a cute Irish accent. I smiled and said, "No, it's fine. I'm a klutz sometimes too. I even trip over thin air sometimes." He chuckled, showing off his cute braces. "I'm Niall, by the way. What's your name, love?" He asked. "I'm Paige." I replied. "Paige, that's a pretty name. I like it. It's pretty and unique." I felt my cheeks get hot, so I looked down at my shoes to hide my blushing face. The way he said my name made me melt and made my heart flutter like crazy. "Next!" The cashier yelled out to me. I stepped forward and Niall said, "Let me buy you coffee. What do you want?" "No, you don't have to. I came here with my friend and I said that I would pay for our drinks this time." I responded. "I'll buy her drink then too. Don't worry about it. I want to buy you coffee." He said back smiling. I agreed and told him what to order Sydney and I. He payed and then we waited for our drinks together. Our drinks were given to us and then Niall turned to me and said, "Well, I better get going now. This was fun talking and waiting with you." I didn't want him to leave. He was really sweet and really cute. I wanted to get to know him better, but I knew that I probably wasn't ever going to see him again. He started to turn around, but he stopped and turned back to me. "So, Paige. Before I leave, I was maybe wondering if I could have your number? Maybe we could hang out sometime or something. But only if you want to." He said, stuttering a little bit here and there. I nodded and took a pen from the counter and wrote my number on his hand. He smiled and said, "Thanks. Maybe we could go out tomorrow night, if your not doing anything. It's Valentine's Day tomorrow and all, and I was just thinking, maybe you could be my date or something. Or do you already have a boyfriend? You probably do, so I'm just going to go now." I giggled and I knew that he must be really nervous. Then I said, "No, I don't have a boyfriend. Tomorrow night would be great." He sighed in relief and smiled, then said, "Great, I'll text you. I'll see you later Paige." Then he turned around and left. I just stood there smiling like an idiot. But I just couldn't help it. I had a date with Niall tomorrow night for Valentine's Day! I was so excited. Sydney suddenly appeared at my side, taking her drink from my hand and said, "Ugh, sorry I took so long. There was a pretty long line in the restrooms also. Why are you smiling like that? And who was that cute guy you were talking to?" I smiled and said, "His name is Niall. We talked while we waited in line and he also payed for our drinks. He's taking me out on a date tomorrow night." Sydney squealed and said, "Lucky! I want a cute guy to ask me out on a Valentine's Day date!" I laughed and then headed toward the door, with Sydney right by my side. We got to my house, did our homework, then watched some TV until Sydney had to go home. She lived right across the street from me, so I didn't have to drive her home. When I got into bed that night, all I could think about was Niall and our date tomorrow night. I used to not believe in love at first sight, but when I was with Niall earlier today, I finally started believing that it was real.

**Next Day**
The bell finally rang for school to get out. I had been so distracted today, just thinking about my date tonight with Niall. I should've been paying attention to what my teachers were telling us, but I just couldn't think straight. I couldn't stop thinking about his beautiful blue eyes, perfect blonde hair, his stunning features, and his mesmerizing Irish accent. Sydney and I walked out to her car and we drove to Starbucks. We ordered our usual drinks, and then went to her house. We tried to study on her bed up in her room, but we ended up just talking about my date tonight. It was almost 5 o'clock and Niall was coming to get me at 6:30. I said goodbye to Sydney, grabbed my stuff, then left. I ran across the street to my house and walked up to my room. It took me a while to decide on what to wear, but I finally picked out a pair of white skinny jeans, a sheer dark blue tank top and my gray boots. I put on my diamond stud earrings and my dangly silver bracelets. I ran into my bathroom and curled my hair and put on a little bit of makeup. When I finished getting ready, I got a text from Niall. It read, "Hey, Paige. I'll be to your house in about 10 minutes. See you soon!" I smiled and my heart fluttered at the thought of me actually going on a date with him. I laid on my bed reading my book while I waited. I heard a car pull up out front and I looked out my window which was right next to my bed. I saw Niall get out of the driver side and he shut the door. He looked up at my window and smiled and waved to me. I smiled and waved back. I got up off of my bed, grabbed my purse and went downstairs. My parents were out on a date night tonight, so I was home alone. I left a note on the counter, to let my parents know where I was just in case they got home before I did. I heard a soft knock on the front door, so I ran to get it. I opened it and smiled up at Niall. "Hey Paige, you look great!" He said, his eyes trailing up and down my body. I blushed and said, "Thank you." "Are you ready to go?" He asked, pointing behind him toward his car. I nodded and stepped out into the front porch. I pulled the door shut behind me and locked it. Niall grabbed my hand lightly and walked me over to the passenger side of his car. He opened the door and helped me in. He walked around to his side and climbed in. He turned on the car and started driving. "Niall, where are we going?" I asked looking over at him. He kept his eyes on the road and smiled then replied, "That's for me to know, and you to find out." I smiled and rolled my eyes. Niall turned a corner and pulled to a stop. Niall smiled at me and unbuckled his seat belt. He got out of the car, ran over to my side and helpled me out. Niall and I walked along a long cobble stone path and walked out onto a small deck. We were at a lake. We turned another corner and I saw a boat. Niall grabbed my hand and helped me up onto the boat. Once we got on, I saw a table in the middle of the boat with delicious food and lit candles with some quiet romantic music playing in the background. Niall pulled out my chair for me and I sat down. He sat down right across from me and then said, "Im really glad you agreed to going out with me tonight, Paige. I know we only just met, but I really like you." I smiled up at him and said, "I really like you too, Niall." He smiled and then looked down at the food in front of us. "Shall we eat? We don't want to let this amazing food go to waste." He said. I nodded and then we started eating. We ate, talked, and laughed the whole night. We shared a strawberry cheesecake and when we finished, Niall stood up and pulled me over to a dimly lit, open section of the boat. He took my hand and spun me around. Niall pulled me to his chest and we slowly swayed to the quiet music. We danced for a while and when the music ended, Niall pulled back slightly and stared right into my eyes. He had a small smile and then he started leaning in slowly. I closed my eyes and then I felt a pair of soft, warm lips press against mine. My mind fogged, so I couldn't think straight and my heart stopped. Butterflies erupted in my stomach as I kissed him back. The music was still playing softly as we stood in the middle of the boat. His arms snaked around my waist, pulling me closer to him, closing the space that we had left between us. My hands went up to his hair, playing with it. Niall's lips sweetly kissed my own, and it felt so perfect. His lips were soft, but rough, just as they should be. His arms were running up and down my spine, sending shivers throughout my whole body. Niall pulled back slowly when we needed to come up for air. He blew hot, uneven puffs of air onto my face and I knew that my breath was probably just as shaky as his was. He smiled down at me and then said, "Happy Valentine's Day, Paige." It was a perfect way to end the most perfect night of my life.
