Savannah's POV

"WAIT WHAT?!" Kylee yelled in the phone.

"Yes I know! I'm like how is this happening!?"

"So like he came up to you after school and asked you on a date?"

"Yes!" I smiled.

"Ahh! I knew it all along!" I could imagine her dancing around in her room. I laughed, thinking about it.

"Wait, so where is he going to take you? Did he tell you?"

"Well he said movies so…"

"Aw, then he can put his arm around you and then…"

"Kylee," I warned her.

"Wait, which movie?"

"I don't know, he didn't tell me. He just said movies."

"Aww my little Savannah is growing up! Hey, I got to go, but I'll text you later."

"Kk bye!!"

"Aww Savannah and Sam! Ahh!" she freaked out. I laughed and hung up. I sat against the bed and opened my geometry book.

"So, what's with this smile?" Eleanor walked in the room and sat next to me.

"What do you mean?"

"Oh come on Savannah, don't lie to me. You've been smiling ever since I picked up you up!" she nudged me. "So, tell me, what happened?"


"Oh my gosh does this have to do with Sam?"

I nodded slowly, "Maybe."

"Tell me!"

"Well he kind of asked me on a date this Friday to the movies," I looked down.

"Aww Savannah!" Eleanor hugged me.

" Hi Louis!" DJ screamed from the kitchen. "Okay one second," She came running in the bedroom. "Louis is on Skype!"

"Okay, tell him I'll be there in a minute." Eleanor said. She turned her attention to me, "So, what did you say? Who am I kidding of course you said yes!"

I nodded and smiled. She smirked and got up. I followed her to the kitchen. DJ was laughing. "What's so funny?" I sat down next to her.

"Hey babe! Hey Savannah," Louis stopped laughing and took a drink of his water.

"Hey Louis," Eleanor smiled when she saw him. I swear, this couple is perfect.

"So, any new news?"
Eleanor smiled bigger. "Well… someone has a little date this Friday."

Louis' eyes got big. "Eleanor! Who is this guy lemme go get him! I thought you weren't going to cheat on me!"

"Not me you silly. Savannah does," she nudged me in the shoulder. I glared at her and gave her the why-did-you-tell-him face.

"Savannah! Ahh! Is it Sam?!"

I looked down and was about to answer him but he stopped me.

"Of course it is! I mean, like, he likes you! I know it! When's the wedding!"

"There's a wedding? Whose wedding? When?" Liam sat down next to Louis on the couch. "Oh, hey guys!" he waved at the camera and turned his attention back to Louis. "So, who's getting married?"

Louis smirks, "Savannah and Sam."

Liam turns his head towards the camera with his eyes and mouth wide opened. "Since when!? Oh my gosh, Savannah!"

I glared at Louis and Liam. "I’m not getting married, you idiot. Not for another decade or so. I don't even know if I'm getting married."

Liam gives me strange look, but then understands. "You have a date with him! Oh my gosh! This is so exciting! When? Aw, Savannah has a little date with her crush."

"No, she has a wedding with her crush," Louis corrected him. Liam slapped Louis on the shoulder. "So," he asked me while Louis was rubbing his arm, "when's he taking out?"

"Friday afternoon," I smiled thinking about it.

"Aww, someone's blushing. Where's he taking you?"

"The movies. I don't know which movie though."

"I have to talk to him before, okay? Give him some rules."

I shook my head, thinking of how embarrassing it was going to be, "fine."

"Louis," Eleanor warned him.

"What?" Louis sarcastically defended himself in his sassy way, "Someone's got to take charge around here."

"Well, I think I'm more trustworthy then you are, Louis." Liam patted Louis on the back and smiled. Louis returned Liam a look of disgust. I just laughed at their silliness. 



"Savannah!" DJ knocked on the bathroom door. I slip on my blue blouse and buttoned up my green pants. I opened the door. She had a smile on her face that expressed she was up to something.
"Yes, DJ."

"Are you excited?"

I nodded, "yeah, I am."

"Are you going to tell him when-"

I immediately clasped my hand over her mouth. I bent down and looked her straight in the eye. She tried so hard not to laugh.

"Daniela Johns."

"Yes," she mumbled against my hand.

"Don't you ever dare to speak of that ever again, you here me?"

She nodded. I took my hand off her mouth and wiped it against her shirt, "and don’t ever spit on me again."

She giggles then skips off to the couch. I shake my head and close the door, finishing up myself to get ready. After making sure I looked perfect, well, not really, I opened the door and sat next to DJ on the couch. I glared at her, "don't you dare. Or else I'm not telling you anything again." She started laughing hysterically, and I couldn’t help myself. I laughed with her. Eleanor walked in with her laptop in her hands. She sat in-between DJ and I, and opened up Skype.

"Do you know how embarrassing they're going to be?" I asked her. She nodded, "yeah, pretty much." Not long after she signed in Louis called us straight away.

"Well hello there lovely Savannah. Excited?" he started talking to me. I nodded, "Yeah, but a little nervous."

"Eh, don't worry, everything is going to be fine! Because he'll go down on one knee and propose to you and you'll invite me to your wedding and I'll be glad to be there!"

I glared at  him, "You wish, Louis."

Liam and Zayn sat on either side of Louis. "Savannah!! I heard you're going on a date tonight!" Zayn clapped his hands like a little girl. I nodded and smiled, "yeah. Wait, are all of y'all there?"

Liam nodded, "don't worry, we need to talk to Sam about the rules. So, Louis thought that all five of us could do the job. I shake my head. "Eleanor hang up," I whine.

"Savannah Johns if you even think about hanging up on us, I will take the next flight to Houston and ruin your date and ground you from anymore dates you have until you're 23."

I raise my eyebrow at him. "Excuse me Louis Tomlinson but I don't think you're in charge of me."

Louis shrugged. "Well I am older than these other four idiots so I technically am."

I sighed and shook my head. "Louis, when are you ever going to grow up."

"Never!" he piped."

"Hello ladies!" Harry pushed through Liam and faced the laptop towards him.
"Hi Harry!" DJ smiled.


My phone vibrated. I reached across the table and grabbed it.

Hey! I'm in the hotel, which room are you in?

Eleanor looked over my shoulder? "Aww, he's here!"

"Shut up Eleanor," I texted him back and gave him the room number. I sighed and looked back on the laptop screen. Niall had joined them, and they were all ready to have a chit chat with Sam. Not long after that, Sam knocked on the door.

"Ahhh!" the boys freaked out. I stand up and walked to the door, with DJ at my heels. I opened the door. "Hey Sam," I smiled. "Hey, Savannah."

"You want to come in? Some guys would like to have a word with you.." I pointed to the laptop.
"Hi Sam!" DJ went up and hugged him.

"Hey, DJ! How're you dong?"

"I'm good! You wouldn't believe who wants to talk to you!" she dragged him to the laptop.

"Well, well, well. Sam! Haven't we heard a lot." Louis started to say.

"Oh hey! You're One Direction!"
They happily nodded. "Yes we are! Okay, back to business. So…" they started giving him rules, one by one. She must be at the hotel room at 10:00 sharp. One minute later, he's dead. That kind of stuff, but they made it sound more dramatic. Typical them.

"Alrighty then! Enjoy your date!" Liam waved us bye. I grabbed my phone and we walked to the door. Before Sam could close the door, we could hear Louis shout, "Only holding hands!" Sam closed the door and laughed. "They are some guys."

I nod, "Yeah, they are."

"You got any money on you?"

I nodded slightly, "yeah."

"You have no permission to use it."


"Savannah, I'm taking you on the date. you're not taking yourself on a date with me."

I shake my head.

"And you've been crushing on them since how long?" he smirked.


"One Direction, of course. Who else would I be talking about?"

I punched him and laughed, "shut up Sam."

He just laughed and pressed the elevator button. We walked in. "So, what movie are we seeing?"

He shrugged, "I was looking at all the choices we have, but most of them are those kiddy movies or like Rated R movies, but my brother told me he found a movie that we could watch. He's coming with his girlfriend if that's okay."

"Oh, that's no problem."

He opened the lobby door and walked me over to Nathan's car. There was a girl in the front seat, I immediately recognized her. She was one of Josh's closest friends. I would see her once in a while.

"Savannah!" she opened the car door and immediately jumped out. I hugged her, "Carly! I missed you! I haven't seen you in ages!"

"Yeah, I know. I'm sorry for not coming to the funeral, we were out of the country for a few months."

"Oh, it's okay."

"How're you doing?"

I shrug, "much better, thank you."

"I haven't seen you in ages, oh my gosh come here!" she hugged me one more time before pulling me aside, "excuse me, but I gotta talk to her about something." she smiled at Nathan and Sam before walking inside the lobby.

"Please tell me that's the Sam you've been crushing on."

I smiled, "maybe."

"Oh my goodness! Ahhh!"

"But you never told me about you and Nathan!"

"Oh, he asked me out just a few weeks ago, right before I went to Germany. But that's the Sam! You guys, are the cutest!"

"It's just a date! Don't get your hopes up!"

She smirked, "well lets just say that in the car driving here Nathan was teasing Sam about 'his date.' Sam was just blushing and telling him to shut up. He likes you!"

I shrugged. "Eh, we'll see."

"Anyways, come on. We're holding up the guys."

We laugh and head back to the car.


We stared at the movie choices. "Find anything?" Sam looked at me. I shook my head. "They're all kid or old people movies."
"I'm sorry. I should be more prepared next time for a date."

"It's okay, Sam. It really is."
"You sure?"

I smile, "positive."

"Hey, how about we ditch them and walk around? And we can go eat somewhere if you would like."

"That'll be great!"

"Better than the movie?" he nervously asked.

"Sam, it's fine. I promise."

He smiled and took my hand. "Okay, let's go!"

We ran outside and walked around the Fountains area, talking about so many things. "So how do you know Carly?"

"Oh, she and Josh were really good friends, and I would see her once in a while. Haven't seen her in forever, though."

He nodded and kicked a rock with his foot. Out of nowhere, my phone started ringing. "Hello?"

"Savannahhh!!! We see youu!!!" Kylee yelled in the phone.

"Wait what?" I look around and can't find them.

"Yeah! Y'all are next to Hobby Lobby!"

I looked around, and sure enough, we were walking next to Hobby Lobby. Sam chuckled and shook his head. "You can hear?" I mouthed to him. He nodded, "yup."

"Oh gosh," my face felt so warm and it was probably red as a tomato. "Kylee, you know you're going to get it."

I could here laughing on the other line, "don't worry, we know that you love us!"

"Haha yeah right. Bye," I hung up on them, shaking my head. Sam just kept on laughing.

"Sam, stop laughing. It's not funny."

"Don't worry, I have friends like that too. Hey, want to eat at Fuddruckers's?"

"Yeah, haven't eat there in ages! Ooh can we eat ice cream afterwards?" pointing to the Marble Slab Creamery.

So you're the one obsessing over ice cream," he laughed.

"Ice cream is my everything."

He shakes his head and laughs, "Oh Savannah, Savannah."


"You're…" he thinks of a word to describe me, "special."

I smile, "of course I am!"


We leave Fuddruckers's and walk the short distance to Marble Slab. We order ice cream and walk outside, eating it. "So, what's your favorite ice cream flavor?"

"Well, it depends. I'm not a big fan of chocolate ice cream."

"Chocolate ice cream is the best," he states coldly.

"No it's not. Cookies 'n cream is."

He shakes his head and puts a spoon of chocolate ice cream in his mouth. I sigh and take a bite of mine. Both are phones vibrated in our pockets. I take mine out and unlocked it. It was a text… from Mary.

Oh my gosh you guys are adorable!! Came along with a picture of us walking around. I realized they sent it to not also me, but Sam, too.

I shook my head, locking my phone and setting my phone back in my pocket. "Are your friends really as embarrassing as Kylee and Mary?"

He chuckled nodded, "not as embarrassing, but a little like them."

"Friends who embarrass you like that? On a date?"

"With your crush?"

My eyes went wide, "did they tell you-"

He put his arm around me, "hey, don't worry. I like you too."

I blush and looked up at him. "Really?" I whispered.

He nodded, "yeah, since April."

I smiled.

"You know," he looked down at his feet, "when Daniel found out, he ran to tell Kylee and Mary."

"They've known that long? Wow, they're pretty good at keeping a secret."

He laughed, "Yeah. they ran up to me right after and they were like 'Oh my gosh! Savannah likes you too!'" he imitated them. I laughed.

"So what took you so long?"

He shrugged, "I don't know, I guess I was a little nervous."

We kept on walking in silence, without any awkwardness. "I asked you now, because I thought you needed something to cheer you up," he shrugged, "I don't know. you looked really down, and I understand."

"Hey," I turn him to face me. "It really cheered me up. Thank you." I wrapped my arms around his neck and hugged him. He smiled in return, "anytime."

We finished our ice cream and have a little basketball game to see who can throw their thrash in the can. Him being one of the best basketball players, won. We kept walking around. It was only 8:30, and we had almost an hour left. As we walked passed Sports Authority, I felt his hand lightly brushed mine. I smiled to myself.

"They really didn't tell you?" Sam wasn't over the fact that Mary and Kylee didn't tell me, and neither was I.

"No! Not even the slightest hint."

"That was a surprise. I thought they told you. I really did."

I shrug, "They're just strange people."

"Like you," he smirked and smiled. I stopped in my tracks and playfully punched him in the arm. "Samuel, shut up."

"Hey, no calling me by my full name!"

"You deserved it!" I shrieked as he tazored me from behind. I fell on the floor from laughing to hard. I finally calmed down and he gave me his hand. I took it and stood up, his face inches away from mine. it felt like everything froze in the moment. My eyes looked up to his, and he smiled. He leaned in, and kissed me.


Everything was perfect.
