Starry-Eyed

15 year old American teenager Bryn is having a normal day at the mall, or, at least that is what is started out as. But when Bryn stops for bite at a pretzel shop, she runs into Niall Horan. And who knew, that with Valentine's Day right around the corner romance would be stronger than ever.

1. Starry-Eyed

I wandered around the corner about to walk into Hollister when my tummy rumbled. Wow. Who knew your stomach could sound like a volcano? Deciding to get something to eat, I strolled to the sign in the middle of the mall that had a map of all the shops. My eyes scrolled down until I found restaurants. Oh good! Auntie Anne's Pretzels is right up ahead. With the Auntie Anne's Pretzels shop in view, I picked up my pace, eager to get there because of the hunger sounds my stomach displayed. A buzz of my pocket indicated I had a message. When reaching into my pocket to locate my phone, I slammed into somebody and got knocked over. "Oh my gosh I am so sorry! I should have been watching where I was going!" I exclaimed, starting to get up only to fall down again.

The hooded figure held out a hand and I happily accepted it. I stared into his eyes, why did they look so familiar? Niall Horan from One Direction. His eyes sparkled an electric blue. That was my favorite feature on him, but the rest of his looks intrigued me as well. His hair looked incredibly soft; I just wanted to run my hands through it. His face was that of an angel, not to mention his caring personality that allured me the most.

"It's alright, no harm done. You are okay, right? That looked like a right nasty fall you had there." His Irish accent caught me off guard. I had heard it millions of times in videos of him speaking, I thought I was used to it but in person it was even stronger. I mentally swooned at the sight of him.

"Ya, I am alright. No harm done, you just shocked me a little. Niall Horan, right? From One Direction." I tried to play it cool but I heard my voice shake. I blushed.

"No cause to be embarrassed," Niall reassured me sweetly. "Yes, I am Niall Horan, but would you mind not saying it too loud because I am hoping for a calm day at the mall, undercover." He added the word undercover while changing his stance to that of a ninja, chuckling.

"Oh, right, I'm sorry. Of course, that must be terrible getting mobbed all the time. I will just get out of your way." I smiled and started to walk towards Auntie Anne's again when his arm reached out and stopped me.

"I didn't mean you had to leave, love. What is your name?" His eyes danced. My tongue seemed to be tied in a knot.

"Bryn. I was actually just going to get a bite to eat."

"How funny! I was on my way for a snack as well  I'm always hungry. What a beautiful name, Bryn." He chuckled. My heart skipped a beat. His laugh made me weak at the knees. "May I join you?"

"Of course! I'm only going for a pretzel but you are welcome to come." I gestured over to Auntie Anne's, hoping to fill the somewhat awkward pause of conversation. 

"Tell me about yourself, Bryn. You seem like a sweet girl." Niall looked down towards his feet, his cheeks a rosy pink. Oh my gosh, was he blushing because of me? This was too good to hope for.

"Well, I am not very interesting, just a normal teenage girl. I'm 15 and I go to high school. How about you? You have a career and everything. And you are about to start a tour! How amazing is that!" I got excited, the smile on my face the size of the Cheshire cat's. I giggled, starting to calm down again. We reached Auntie Anne's, ordering two salt pretzels and two sodas. "Nothing more, Niall? I thought you always ordered buckets of food!" I chuckled.

"Hey! So I get a little hungry! But actually I ate about two hours ago and I was going to get a snack. And yes, we are about to start our tour. Things are pretty hectic, which is why I came to chill at the mall for a day. And plus Lou and Zayn are spending time with their girlfriends because it is the day before Valentine's Day and all." I noticed the smile start to fade from his face.

"Are you okay, Niall? Is something wrong?" I looked up into those beautiful eyes once more and I was hypnotized.

"Well it is Valentine's Day tomorrow and I still haven't found the right girl..." He trailed off, but only for his face to light up again after a moment's thought. "I know we just met but you seem kind of nice, do you think you would like to hang out tomorrow? Maybe catch a movie or a bite to eat?" His face looked so hopeful. After I didn't reply for a moment or two because of shock, he quickly added, "nothing serious, you know. I mean, you don't have to if you don't want too. You probably have plans anyway." He mumbled the last part. 

"Niall, I would be honored. So as we were saying... What were we talking about?" Niall chuckled once more and I got lost in his starry eyes. They were so beautiful, twinkling the way a star would...

"Why thank you, I never thought my eyes would be compared to stars." Niall started laughing.

"I am so glad you find me hilarious." I added sarcastically. Wait, did I say that out loud?

"Yes, yes you did, love. S'alright though. It was a wonderful compliment. His hand reached up to my face to carefully tuck a strand of my curly brunette hair behind my ear. I placed my hand on top of his, feeling tingles of pleasure.

"Horan! Your order is ready!" The cashier called. I broke out of the trance and quickly walked towards the cash register again to grab our food. Walking back to the table we sat at, my eyes nervously wandered around the mall. When I had reached the table, I noticed Niall's eyes following me. He grabbed the pretzels, got up and grabbed my hand. Sparks flew, my whole body tingled like crazy. He held it tight, leading me away from Auntie Anne's.

"You and I are going for a walk! And we can talk," Niall gestured in front of us. "My day is yours, where shall we go?" He side glanced at my face, saw the huge grin plastered onto it and went back to looking at his feet.

"No, Niall." I said. His face phased from hope and happiness, to a look of shock. I chuckled. "I mean, I would love to go with you, but on one condition. We go where you want." I exclaimed. My insides jumped for joy. My heart beat a mile a minute, and I think I was having trouble walking.

"Okay, if that's what you want. Come on, then!" He squeezed my hand and led me off to Vans.

The Next Day- Valentine's Day

--------------------------------

"Hey, babe. I am outside." I read the text from Niall and my heart panicked. Just thinking about him made me get woozy. At the end of our day at the mall yesterday he asked for my number and made sure we had plans to get a bite to eat the next day. And I had thought, how could this happen to me? I am just one fan in millions, but yet Niall decided to make ME feel special, like the only girl in the world. I giggled to myself. That was one of the songs they sang on the X-Factor. I slowly, shakily got up off the couch, all dressed, ready for our Valentine's Day date.

I decided on skinny jeans, turquoise high top converse, and a flowy shirt. I had curled my hair and put a little make-up on, not wanting to overdo it. I walked to the door and opened it only to be picked up and swung around by Niall. "Hello beautiful." My breath caught as he called me beautiful. Every time I heard that accent I fell deeper into the abyss of my feelings for Niall. "Are you ready? I thought we would catch a ferry and go out to eat at one of my favorite restaurants: The Rainforest Cafe." He winked at me.

The Rain Forest Cafe

----------------------

The waiter led Niall and I to our table on the third floor. Nobody was sitting here except us. "I am going to be right back, love. I have to go to the bathroom. It will only be a minute." He winked, dashing off to the elevator that takes you down to the first/second floor. Boys and their fast bladders. I giggled, making myself laugh.  This Valentine's Day, for the first time, I felt something special, an indescribable feeling. It was my first Valentine's Day with someone who made me feel unique and warm inside.

The elevator door popped open, out hopping Niall with a hand behind his back. He pulled up a chair next to me and whipped out what was behind his back: a guitar. My stomach was suddenly occupied by butterflies beating their wings milliseconds fast. His gentle fingers strummed the guitar and before I knew it he was singing.

Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me
But bear this mind it was meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me

I know you've never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile,
You've never loved your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine

But I'll love them endlessly

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it's you, oh it's you, they add up to
I'm in love with you and all these little things.

He stopped strumming the guitar, gently placed it on the ground next to him, and stared into my eyes. He leaned in at the same time I did, his face inches in front of mine. His lips connected with mine, and I was entranced. Shivers reverberated up my spine with his lips on mine, I didn't want it to end. He slowly pulled away, studying me. A tear slid down my cheek. "Baby, what's wrong?" There was a worried look on Niall's face.

"Nothing," I replied. "Absolutely nothing. I'm just so happy; it's a tear of joy. That was..." I trailed off.

"Out of this world," he finished for me. I ran my fingers through his blonde hair. It was every bit as soft as I had thought it would be. My hand drifted down to his neck, as I pulled him back close to me, and pressed my lips on his. It was a gentle kiss, like the first, and every bit as sweet. He pulled away after a couple seconds. "I think I might be in love with you."

Yes, I am starry-eyed for Niall Horan.
