1. An Unexpected Reunion

"YAY! Today's the day!" I sung as I got up and got ready.

I went to the mirror (while still singing) and started to get ready. I put on old blue jeans with a black tank top that says in big silver glittery letters 'BITE ME!' I put on my black and white converse one stars and put my hair in a messy pony tail. I looked at myself one last time in the mirror. I was tall around 5'6. I have pale skin. I was skinny and curvy. Blue eyes and my favorite part about myself was my hair. It was black with purple streaks long and wavy.

I ran down stares and ate.

Today's the day I leave for Oxford University! I was exited because It was closer to my home town Ireland.


I was sitting on the swing looking at the sky. Me being 5 years old was suppose to be fun there. Nope. Not on that day. I was sitting on the swings crying. My grandma had tried to cheer me up, but nothing worked so she had decided to take me to the park seeing if maybe that would help. It didn't.

A little boy came up to me. I don't know how, but I still remember what he looked like. He had blond hair and blue eyes.

"Can I sit beside you and swing?" He asked.

All I could do was nod.

"What's wrong? Why are you crying?" He asked.

I burst out crying and he looked a little scared.

"I-I'm sorry! I didn't mean to make you cry more!" He said.

"No it's ok. I-it's just... My parents died yesterday," I said. Tears streaming down my face like a waterfall.

"I'm sorry. Hey maybe I can cheer you up! I'm Niall! What's your name?" He asked getting up from the swing and holding his hand out.

"Maxine," I said doing the same thing and shaking his hand.

"Wanna be bestfriends?" He asked.

"Sure!" I said and we ran off and played.


*1 day later*

I got off the plane and kissed the ground. "OH THANK GOD! SWEET LAND!" I said streaching out my arms and I guess hoping the ground would hug me back.

I went to my hotel and unpacked. I would be staying until the University started back. When I was done I decided to get ready and go sight seeing! When I got outside, I breathed in the freash air.


When I was 14 my grandma decided to move me out and into my cousins house in America and live. Niall and me were still bestfriends like we had promised.

"Why are you leaving me? Am I that bad?" He asked.

"No no no! Of corse not! I'm gonna miss you!" I said.

"Then why leave?" He asked.

"Grandma thinks it's going to be good for me. We'll keep in touch though!" I said trying to cheer him up.

"This ain't fair!" He groaned.

"I leave tomorrow..." I said and trailed off trying not to cry.

"Tomorrow's Valientines Day though! Your gonna leave me on Valintines Day!" Niall practically shouted.

I hated when he shouted. He was scary like that. I burst into tears. Niall came up and hugged me.

"I'm sorry. I just don't want you to leave. Please don't leave me!" He was practically begging.

"I have no choice," I said and cried on his shoulder.


When I got out I was surronded by shopping malls and places to eat.

I went into one store and by then I had my arms full of bags. I wasn't paying attention and bumped into somebody and fell.

"OW!" I said.

"Sorry love!" A dude with buzz cut hair said and helped me up.

"It's ok. It was my fault." I said.

He looked me up and down and said, "Are you single?"

I was shocked. "I...Uh...Yes I am...Why?"

"Well tomorrow's Valentines Day and I have this friend and he's nice guy and he ain't got nobody to spend Valentines Day with... Would you...Maybe.... Like too?" He asked.

"Uhhhh.... What's your name?" I asked.

"Liam," He replied.

I was going to pass up the offer but what the hay. What have I got to lose? I said yes and Liam gave me his number and told me to be in the park at 7 that's where they'll be.

That night when I went to bed I couldn't stop thinking about that mysterious date.


It was the day I had to leave and everyone was at the airport.

"I'm gonna miss you Max," Niall's older brother Greg said. He called me by my nickname. "Your like a little sister to me."

"Thanks. Imma miss you too," I said and hugged Greg good-bye. Greg could be really annoying, but I was going to miss him.

After everyone had told me bye it was Niall's turn. Everyone was spred out and wanted to give me and Nial a little privacy.

Niall hugged me and I could tell he was probly holding back tears. "I'm going to miss you so much Max!"

"I'm going to miss you too Niall!" I said and started to cry a little.

We ended the hug and Niall looked me in the eyes. Me and him knew it was Valientines Day, but what he did was so unexpected that I relized then and there how I really felt about him.

He smashed his lips into mine and it was great. Best kiss I've ever had. I wrapped my arms around his neck. We ended the kiss and I huged him.

"I love you Maxine Hale. I always have," Niall whispered in my ear.

"I love you too Niall Horan. I love you more than life itself!" I whipered back and began to cry again.

"Don't cry. It'll be ok. Happy Valentines Day. I love you," He said.

"Happy Valentines Day too Niall. I love you!" I said and kissed him on the cheek.

With that we ended the hug and never saw each other again.


*That next night on Valentines Day*

I took a shower, put on blue jeans, my converses, and a nice black shirt with a heart on it that says 'Be Mine'. I straightened my hair and put some lip gloss on.

I was all ready in less than an hour and I headed to the park. When I got there people were everywhere. How was I suppose to find Liam and that mystery boy in this mess?

Someone tapped on my shoulder and I jumped. I turned around and it was Liam with some girl. She was pretty. Black curly hair, tall, and skinny. There was a boy beside him. He looked strangly fimiliar. Where have I seen him?

"This is Niall and Danielle!" Liam said and greeted us with a warm smile.

I looked at Niall and froze in shock.

"I-I'm Ma-Maxine! Or you can call me M-Max," I spit out.

"Ok. Niall and Maxine over there!" Liam said and I walked away with Niall still to shocked to say anything.

"Uh... I know you might think I'm crazy, but I know you!" Niall said and I looked up at him for the first time and he gasped.

We sat down on the ground. I don't know what all these people were here for.I looked over and saw a sighn that said 'Fire Works display at 9!' Oh. So that's what we were here for.

"D-do you remember me?" Niall asked and I nodded.

Niall looked at me and a smile covered his face.

"It's YOU! It really is YOU!" He said and hugged me.

I hugged back and bust into  tears. I've missed his hugs.I missed him and it didn't really occur how much I missed him until that moment.

"I've missed you so much!" I said.

"I've missed you too!" Niall said.

We pulled apart and gazzed into each other's eyes. As soon as our lips touched the fire works went off. We kissed and our lips moved in sync together. We pulled apart layed down.

"I'm not letting you go this time... Ever!" He said and pulled me towoards him. I rested my head on his chest.

"I don't want you too Niall," I said and took his hand in mine. Our fingures intwined and fit together like a peice of a puzzle.

"Happy Valentines Day Maxine. I love you!" He said.

"Happy Valentines Day Niall. I love you too!" I said.
