That Brunette And Me

Amelia just moved to Britain from a small town, after having a terrible relationship with a past boyfriend. She meets superstar Liam Payne, but can she get over heartbreak, the wrath of Directioners, and being in fame? Or will she break under the pressure?



2. European Adventure

I couldn't believe it. My parents were actually letting me go to an exchange school! I asked them where I should attend school, and we decided on a school in Britain. I was beyond excited!

So here I was, two suitcases chalk full of stuff, my purse, and my going away present to "Keep you from being lonely," according to my parents. It was the cutest little Pomeranian, in which I named Bear. I stood in the busy airport, ready to board my long flight to Europe.

I slept most of the way there, and once we arrived I was in a daze. I struggled with my suitcases and stumbled out into the British airport. It smelled of flowers, trees, and quite frankly, if beauty had a smell, it would be this place.

"Oomph!" I gasped, after someone rammed into me from the side.

"Oh, goodness, I'm so sorry!" A deep British voice exclaimed. I looked up to see a handsome boy. He had beautiful hair, although some was shaved, it looked almost golden in the bright sunlight. Behind his aviators, I couldn't see his eyes, and the glare of the sun made it hard to see his entire face.

"Uh, it's alright..." I managed to say. Why am I such a freak!

"No, no it's not!" He replied shaking his head. "Here, let me help you up. It's Liam by the way."

I smiled and took his hand. He lifted me up and grabbed one of my suitcases.

"I'm Amelia. I'm from the States."

"What state? I just got back from California!" He replied, flashing me his perfect pearly whites. Why weren't my teeth that perfect! At least I used Colgate whitening strips...

"Minnesota. From a very small town." I took my suitcase from his outstretched hand gratefully.

"Wow, I've never been but I've heard there is lots of bears there." He said, winking.

My stomach dropped in horror. "Oh my gosh! I forgot my dog!" I gasped, my eyes as wide as saucers, I grabbed my suitcases and said hurriedly "I'm sorry! I have to go!"

"Wait! At least let me get your number!" He said, sprinting after me. I grabbed his phone and typed my new number in quickly.

"I'll call you later!" He yelled after me, laughing as I tripped over someone's foot.

A few hours later, I found my apartment I was renting, and luckily with Bear in tow.

Bzzzz. Bzzzz.

I picked up my phone and looked at the caller ID. Mom.

"Hey mom." I sang into the phone.

"Hello sweetheart! How was your first day?"

"Pretty good. Got rammed into at the airport, and almost forgot Bear. No biggie." I joked.

"Did you beat up the person who bumped into you?" She laughed at the other end of the phone.

"Nope. Actually I got his number. His name is Liam." I smiled into the phone, thinking of my luck. My heart suddenly winced. Maybe I wasn't ready for this...

"Ooh! Hey, dear! Ami already got some cute boy's number!" My mom squealed, talking to my dad.

"Mom! I never said he was cute..." Nope. He was freaking HOT.

"Mmhmm, I can tell these things.." My mom teased.

I giggled, surprised at the sound. I hadn't laughed like that in a while.

"Okay honey, I have to go, it's really late. Love you!" She said, yawning. I set down my phone and began to unpack my suitcase.

Bzzzz. Bzzzz.

Boy, do I feel popular! I picked up the phone and looked at the screen.

Unknown Number. Who could that be...

"Hello?" I said into the phone, sitting down on my bed.

"Is this Amelia?"

"Yeah. Is this Liam?" I replied.

"It depends." He laughed casually.

"How is it?" I said, picking up Bear and setting her in my lap.

"Fine, I guess. Just hanging with some friends." He replied steadily.

"Hallooo! Hallo!" I heard a few voices call in the background.

"Hello to you too!" I replied.

"So, Liam, is that the ho-" A voice started, being cut off by Liam's low voice.

"Shut up Louis!" He hissed.

"I was going to say 'hobbly girl after you literally ran into her'." He snickered.

"Hello, Louis!" I said. Hmm, Louis. Why was that so familiar?

"Very nice to meet you as well!" He called back. I then heard a door being closed and it was quieter.

"Can we hang out tomorrow?" Liam whispered into the phone.

"Sure. You might have to come get me, I barely even now where I am right now!" I giggled, hoping I didn't sound like a dork.

"I can pick you up.. But we'll have to be sort of concealed..." He said quietly.

"Why?" I asked.

"Have you ever heard of the band One Direction?"

"Well, yeah. Are they here or..." Oh. My. Gosh. Why didn't I put 1 and 1 together??!?! Liam. Payne. Louis. Tomlinson. Ohmygosh.

"I'm guessing you just figured it out.." He said almost ruefully.

"I didn't even realize!"

"Does this mean it's a no for tomorrow?"

"Definitely not! Pick me up!"

I gave him my address and we hung up.

I am going to be with the one of the members of the world's biggest boy band. How in the world could I have gotten this lucky!
