It Started With a Dream (A One Direction Fan Fiction)

As Charley, Karilin, Laurel, Mary, Callie, Diana, and Diana's boyfriend, Chance leave high school in the states, they decide to go to England, the girls hoping to find fame in the place they've wanted to go all their lives. What will they find in the place of their dreams? Is it what they're looking for? Or is it more?


7. Just a Dream

"Why did it have to be a dream?" I asked no one in particular.

"Another Louis dream?" Karilin asked.

"Yeah. It felt so real too." I said, opening my eyes.

"Yeah. Well, maybe we will meet them." Laurel said hopefully.

"Maybe." Callie said from the sofa.

I looked at the clock by my bed, squinting to see the neon numbers. It was 5am. "Why would you wake me up so early?"

"Because you lack the hurry up chromosome." Karilin said.

"It's true, Charley. And I asked your mom to wake me up before she left for work. She said to tell you she loves you and to call her when you can."

"Okay." I said pulling my phone from under my pillow. 'I have such cruel friends. It's only 5am! #LetMeSleep #MovingToEngland' I tweeted.

I shoved my phone back under my pillow, rolling off the bed. I rolled all the way to the stairs down the hall. I crawled down the stairs, finally standing up when I reached the refrigerator. "Foooood." I moaned. I pulled the box of leftover pizza out and placed it on the counter. I opened the box to find three slices of pepperoni pizza. I took all three and put them on a plate, not bothering to heat them. I trudged back up the stairs, going back to my room and putting the plate on my desk. I took a slice of pizza and flopped on my bed, taking a bite.

"Charley, you're the only one of us who isn't finished packing." Callie said.


"Let me eat."

"No. Pack. Now." Diana said from the floor where she sat, reading.

"Okay. Has anyone made any coffee yet?"

"Yeah. I did right before you woke up." Diana said.

"Good. Will someone please get me a cup? I'm not doing junk until I get my coffee."

"I guess I will, lazy." Diana said, standing up.

"Use the white chocolate raspberry creamer please. Two teaspoons of sugar."

"Yeah. I know, Charley. I make your coffee all the time." Diana said, walking out of the room

"Just making sure." I laughed, already feeling more awake.

"So who wants to help me pack?" I asked.

"Help yourself." Callie said, covering her face with a pillow.

"I'll help you, slacker." Laurel said from beside her now-airless air mattress.

"I'd rather whomp you. But I'll help." Mary said.

"Oh gee, thanks, best friend." I said sarcastically.

"I'm not helping you right now. I have to make myself presentable." Karilin said, pulling a brush through her hair.

I took three of my already packed suitcases and put them by my bedroom door.

I took my last two suitcases from under my bed and put them in the middle of the room. I took the one that was half full of some of my favorite shirts. I pulled one of the out that was gray with a black and white sequined owl on the front with an open back that was pulled together at the top with a little gray bow. I pulled the shirt on over my black and white tie dye tank top.

I then pulled on the jean mini skirt from my dream.

"The coffee was cold. Someone turned the coffeepot off. I had to put it in the microwave." Diana said as she walked in the room, handing my favorite coffee mug to me. I took a sip, smiling and relaxing a little.

I sat my coffee on my desk, looking in the mirror and pulling my hair back, trying to decide what to do to it. I finally decided to do a fishtail braid from my roots on one side, straight into another fishtail braid with all of my hair. It showed off my bright blue lowlights nicely.

"Okay, Charley. You're presentable. You can do whatever else you need to do when you finish." Mary said, dragging me back to my suitcases and making me sit down.

"But I don't want to pack." I whined. "It's too early. And I need to do my eye makeup."

"Drink your coffee and shut up." Karilin said, applying mascara to her bottom lashes.

*Louis POV*

"Why can't we go to Nandos?" Niall asked as we pulled up to the airport.

"Because the plane takes off at 8:00, Niall." Liam said.

"What time is it now?" Niall asked hopefully.

"It's 8:40. We don't have time." Liam replied.

"Don't worry, Nialler. We can eat on the plane." I said, laughing.

"Okay." He said happily.

Ten minutes later, we boarded the plane. I sat alone, in front of Harry and Zayn. Liam and Niall sat behind them.

"Potatooooo." I heard Niall say.

I looked down at my phone, putting one of my headphones in and pressing the play button. 'You Found Me' by The Fray began to play.

I looked up as a large group boarded the plane. The girl in the back had headphones in and was constantly fiddling with her necklace. I took my headphone out, smiling as she looked up from her phone. She looked around, not noticing me.

I looked around at the rest of the group, noticing that there was only one boy with the six girls.

"Why do all of you get to sit together while I have to sit with some random stranger?" The one in the back asked.

"Because you were the last one to wake up, Charley." A girl with curly blonde hair said.

"How is that my fault?" She asked. I smiled to myself. She was cute.

"It just is I guess." Another girl with long, light brown hair said.

I processed their conversation carefully. The girl named Charley was complaining about having to sit with some random stranger. I looked at her again and noticed a tattoo on her arm. It was an infinity symbol that said directioner in it. I smiled. The boy in the group sat down in front of me with a girl who had dark brown hair. Charley would be sitting with me.

She stared down at her phone, bobbing her head to her music. I smiled as she sat down beside me, not looking up.

"Hi." I said to her.

"Hi." She said, looking up at me. Her eyes widened slightly.

"I'm Louis." I chuckled.

"I know." She said, smiling shyly. "I'm Charley."

She looked down at her phone again, tapping the screen a few times.

Out of the corner of my eye, I could see her friend turn around and stare at her, making a weird face.

"Diana! Creeper!" She said, pushing Diana's head back down and turning her toward the boy sitting next to her. "Chance! Control your girlfriend. She's being a creeper!"

I noticed her other friends were trying to turn their heads without anyone noticing.

"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have told them anything." She said, crinkling her nose.

"It's fine." I smiled warmly at her.

"So," she said, "you're going back to England."

"Yeah. We get to stay there all summer. Why are you going?"

"I've been dreaming of moving to London since I was four. Today, my dream comes true!" She grinned.

"It's good to follow your dreams. I did."

"Yeah. We're going to promote our band too. Except Chance. He's just support for Diana." She laughed.

I looked into her eyes, studying the colors. Around her pupil were yellow little specs, surrounded by dark greenish blue and dark green.

"Well, I guess it's a good thing I was forced to sit alone." I said as it was announced that we were taking off.

"I was too. I was terrified I would be stuck with sitting with an old pedophile." She chuckled. I couldn't help but laugh with her.

"That would be horrible." I looked down at my phone and texted Harry.

Aaand thank you for making me sit alone. :)

Harry leaned forward and rested his chin on the back of my seat.

"Hi. What's your name?" Harry asked Charley.

"This is Charley." I said, smiling.

"What he said."

"I'm Harry." He smiled. "Liam! Louis met a girl!" I heard Harry whisper loudly.

Liam looked over his seat too. "Hi. I'm Liam." He said.

"Charley." She smiled.

I looked back down at my phone, messaging all four of the lads. 'SHE'S MINE.'

I instantly got four replies

Harry: I know.

Liam: Go Lou!

Zayn: Who?

Niall: Oooooh. Louis likes someone!

Me: Her name is Charley. She's moving to London. I might have a chance. So stay off her!

Harry: Fine by me.

"I think I'm going to just take a nap. Wake me in two hours?" Charley said sleepily, leaning on the arm of her seat. It looked uncomfortable.

"Don't let her sleep like that! It looks really uncomfortable." Liam said to me quietly.

"It is." Charley mumbled, sitting up. "I had to wake up at five this morning. Cruelty of friends." She rolled her eyes.

"You can... Erm... Lean on me if you'd like." I said.

"Thanks Louis." She mumbled, resting her head on my shoulder. I could feel chills go up my spine when she said my name.

"Aww! You look so cute together!" Liam said.

"She's adorable." I whispered. "I really want to know her." I wrapped an arm around her and let her lie on my chest.

"Charley!" Diana said, turning around. When she looked down at her, she smiled, realizing she was asleep. "Sorry. I can tell her later." She turned back around and I heard her shout "Karilin! Mary!" And some indistinct whispers that I knew were about Charley.

"Has Charley ever told you girls to work on your whispering skills?" I chuckled.

"She has..." The girl who seemed to be named Callie said.

Once two hours passed, I gently shook Charley's shoulder. "Charley, its been two hours. Wake up, love."

"Ugh. Laurel. Shut up. I don't want to get up yet." She muttered.

"Charley, I'm not Laurel. I'm Louis." I said.

Her eyes flew open and she shot up. "I'm so sorry." She said, standing up.

"It's fine. Where are you going?"

"Laurel texted me. She said to come talk to her. I'll be right back."

I watched as Charley slowly walked two seats forward. She turned her head and looked at me as I swiftly turned to face the window.

"Oooh. Louis's crushing on someone!" Harry announced loudly.

"Maybe..." I whispered, sliding down in my seat to hide my burning cheeks.
