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?



5. The New Job

After a long discussion, and I mean long, with Elle about me not informing her of the news, I hung up and immediately began to look for a job. I went to the closest market and grabbed a few newspapers and paid for them. I went back to my apartment and laid them on the table, ready to look.


"Accountant... no." I mumbled to myself. "Teller, oh, definitely not!"

Finally I found the perfect job.

'Help Wanted; Experienced Barista. Coffee Grinds.'

Back in my hometown, I had worked in a small little building called The Coffee Shack, so this job would be easy as pie!


My phone vibrated next to me, and I looked at who the text was from.


From: Liam

Hey, I was wondering if you'd like to go for dinner with me and the boys tonight? It'll be a blast!

I typed my reply fast, my stomach fluttering.


To: Liam

Sure! That sounds great! It'll be great to meet them, they sound wonderful!


His text back was fast, as I locked my door and walked down the stairs in the direction of Coffee Grinds.


From: Liam

Uhh, maybe. I better go. Bye, love! (:


To: Liam

Goodbye! See you later! (:


Oh my gosh, he just called me love. I practically ran into a pole, causing an old woman to curse at me, yelling "Bloody teenagers, obsessed with their phones, my God!" I giggled, but stopped. I still wasn't used to the sound.


Once I reached Coffee Grinds, I noticed there were only a few customers. I looked down the road and saw a Starbucks. No wonder! I rolled my eyes and walked in to the cozy little building. I walked up to the counter to a girl with fire engine red hair and a very interesting choice of fingernail polish. It was a blinding neon yellow.

"May I help you?" She said kindly, setting down the book she was reading. 'Pride and Prejudice', I loved that book, even if it was a little slow going.

"Yeah, I was wondering about your ad in the newspaper?" I said, taking the clipping out of my pea coat's pocket.

"Oh yeah! Let me go get the manager!" She got up off of the stool she had been sitting on and opened a swinging door that was behind the counter. She came back with a man in maybe his early 40's or late 30's. He had sprinkled salt and pepper hair and thick glasses.

"Hello, I'm Matt, I own this shindig." Matt smiled, sticking his hand out for me to shake. I was surprised by his American accent, expecting him to have a strong accent like the red haired girl.

"I'm Amelia. I was wondering about a job here. I saw the ad in the newspaper." I replied, shaking his hand.

"Firm grip, just what I like." he said, letting go of my hand. I grinned and replied "Thank you, sir."

"Nah, I prefer Matt." he said, shaking his head.

"And I'm Lacey!" The redhead laughed heartily, shaking my hand.

"So have you any experience with coffee of some sort?" Matt questioned.

"I used to work at a small stand called The Coffee Shack. It's in America though."

"Ah, the great states! I prefer it here better, but I used to live out in rural New York." he said, pushing his glasses up his thin nose. "Shall we get started with you're training then? Lacey you can handle this correct?"

She nodded, leading me behind the counter and beginning my training.


The training lasted until about 4:30, and it was a blast! I was hired by Matt and introduced to a few others who work there. I got my schedule, which was planned around my school hours, and I now had a job. And now it was time to meet the boys.
