So This is Love?

Juliet Roberts is surprised to find the one and only Liam Payne staying in her house while her parents are on vacation in Cape Cod. At first she feels like just a young Mom, caring for another. But dreams and urges to just kiss him and have him hold her forever can't be normal for every hard core Directioner, right? If not...then is this love?


1. Parents Gone

"I will, Mom, OK, just go, you're going to miss your flight," I urged my mother out the door.

"And I just did a load of laundry so you should be set for the weekend," she added as she tossed her overstuffed suitcase into the trunk of the SUV.

"OK, Mom, I will, bye!" I waved enthusiastically and smiled, remembering to mix some sadness into my excitement;the whole house. To myself. For the weekend. The best time of the week.

As my father pulled down the driveway, my mother rolled down the window. "And no parties! Please keep friends out of the house, unless its and emergency. And if its not an emergency, go meet them at the park or something..." Her voice faded as my dad turned the corner.

I headed back into the house and collapsed on the couch. Now that I finally had the house to myself...I didn't know what to do!

I decided to go up to my room, thinking I would find something there.

Falling face-first into my pile of pink and white pillows, I thought about having a dance party. I turned on "Live While We're Young" by One Direction, the greatest boy band of all time, and danced.

It was kinda weird with just me in the room, but hey! No one was home, no one could see me doing stupid things...

Hey! No one could see me doing to stupid things!

Digging into the depths of my closet, I found the white trash bag filled with my old childhood beasties: Snuggles, Mr. Hissing, Laurie, Marcy May...

I brought them all out into the light, and I grabbed Tuskie, the elephant, and swung her around ,y room for the next 20 minutes, listening to all 1D's best songs: Kiss You, Rock Me, I Would, Ome Thing, Up All Night...

Man, it was getting hot in here! I twirled over to the window, and threw it open. Ah, air!

Next on my playlist was Little Things, so I had to sit on the bed for that one. Laying on my back, I stared up at the poster of Liam attached to my ceiling. Boy, he was gorgeous! I hear him talking to me, asking me out, proposing...

But that would never happen. It was possible, because I'm a Senior in high school, so it's not that much of an age difference. Also, I'm not ugly. I've dated 7 football players, all in my Senior year, 6 in my Junior, 6 again in my Sophomore, and 4 in my Freshman year.

The doorbell pulls me back into reality. I don't answer it. Mom's rule.

I continue living in my own little world, thinking about why Liam wouldn't want me.

I can hear him begging for a place to stay for the weekend, maybe my house, but why would he need a place to stay??? He was Liam Payne, after all.

"...please, I am begging you!"

Could that It was just my imagination. Liam was not outside, begging to stay at Mr. Jupran's house next to mine.

But it was worth checking. I floated toward the open window and Little Things ended.

OMG! It was him, I was sure of it. No fig,net of my imagination again, no, I was sure he was there, I could hear his accent.

"I said no!" Mr. Jupran scolded. "Now scram. That girl next door calls herself a Directionater, go bug her!"

"I already tried all the houses on this street. That girl, that DirectionER, either wasn't home or just didn't open the door!"

"Bye kid, I'm closing the door on you."

I knew what I had to do if I wanted my man!

I shot out of my room like a bullet, pounding down the stairs, until I reached the door. I threw it open and raced out.


He turned, surprised. Inept he was expecting a mob of fan girls, but that's not what he got.

"I'm Juliet, the 'Directionater next door'. Well,actually I'm a Directioner, but according to Mr. Jupran, Directionater. But what does he know, right?"

I bet Liam thought I was crazy. But if he needed a place to stay as much as I thought he did, he would talk to me.

"I'm really sorry. We were here on tour when Niall went to look for Nandos, Zayn went with Harry to look for some chicken tacos, and Louis was with me, which is good, because he can always make me laugh. But we got in an argument, and now I don't know where he is."

"Why don't you come inside," I suggested. I can get you a snack and you can tell me everything you need to."

"Thank you, that's very kind, but I wouldn't want to impose. I am guessing you are home by yourself at the moment?" He wondered. I could see his eyes twinkling.

" did you know?" I asked. This was starting to get a little more unusual than I thought.

"I saw you dancing with your stuffed animals," he said, smiling and looking at his feet.

"Oh, that. Yeah, I figured no one would see me..." I decided to leave the topic for now. "So, should we go inside?"

"Um, OK, but only for a little while. I just need to call Zayn and Louis and Niall and Harry and find out where they all are."

"OK, that's fine. Just get inside."

I led him to the front door which was still open, and I sat him on the couch. As I got him water and oatmeal raisin cookies, I asked him, "So what happened with you and the guys?"

"Well, we were getting ready for our show. Everyone was ready but me. Even Zayn had his teeth brushed and everything. We were gonna go out onstage, but then a security guard came and told us just to follow him. So we did. We trusted him." He took a sip of water. As he put it back on the table, it spilled.

"Son of a Nutcracker! I'm so sorry, Juliet, let me help you clean that know how I'm the clumsy one in One Direction..."
