Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

**This is my story for the 1SHOT41D competition, please read!!**
Rane went on a cruise with her mom and her sister, but little did she know One Direction was on the same ship. When she runs in to a mysterious boy hidden behind sunglasses and a beanie, she can't tell who he really is. Louis Tomlinson.


1. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

"Rane, do you want to come on a walk around the ship with me?" My mom came into the room, pulling her blonde hair into low ponytail. I nodded and followed her to the door. We're on a cruise, because her boss thought she needed a break. I agree. This is the fun life! No, we really have only gotten on this ship today. My sister already went to look around. I, instead, stayed in the hotel-like room and unpacked since this is a two-month cruise. We get to stop a four different islands! 

"So, where exactly are we going?" I looked at my mom who just shrugged. My mom wasn't all that old, she was a teenage mom. She's my role-model. Only the strongest of people, like her, could raise twins on her own. Yeah, that's right. I have a twin sister, Ava.

"Just around and about." I looked at her with a funny expression. Out and about? I shrugged it off and looked around. All of a sudden I heard someone screaming above me. I looked up and saw someone on a zip-line across the entire ship. I grinned excitedly and started pulling on my mom's sleeve. She snapped her head at me and I just pointed up. She started shaking her head.

"Now way, Rane. I am NOT doing that!" I frowned and started whining. 

"But mom! Come on! It's not everyday you go on a cruise and get to go on a zip-line!" She shook her head again. 

"I am not going on that death trap, Rane. Now, if you want to, go ahead. But right now, I have to go to the restroom." She quickly turned away and headed to the bathroom right beside us. I sighed, sitting on the bench and waiting for her return. 

"Excuse me?" I looked up and saw a boy with a beanie and sunglasses on. I looked at him for a second, observing his features. He looked oddly familiar... I realized I was staring and shook my head out of my daze. 

"Are you talking to me?" I asked, pointing to myself. 

"No, I'm talking to the bench! Hey benchy! Want to meet my butt?" He said playfully, then sitting next to me. I giggled at the silliness of this childishness stranger. He smiled then stared at me, observing me intently. I waved my hand in front of his face and he quickly snapped out of whatever kind of trans he was in. 

"Sorry- I, uh... Well, I over heard you and your mom and I thought, maybe you'd go on the zip-line with me? All my friends are wusses." I thought about it for a minute. I don't even know him... Oh well. I nodded and stood up with him. We walked over to the line for the zip-line and stood at the back. 

"So, what's your name?" He asked, standing next to me. I looked at him again, something is completely familiar about him. 

"Rane. What's your name?" I asked, just as we reached the man with the tickets. 

"How many?" He asked, holding tickets in his hand. 

"Two, please." He replied, handing the man the money. I would usually oblige but it's too late. I'll pay him back later. 

We got all strapped in and I started shaking a little. I've never done this before... I'm not backing down! Not right now! The boy, who has never told me his name yet, took a hold of my hand and gave it a slight squeeze. 

"Don't be nervous love, I got you." I instantly felt jolts up my entire arm when he took my hand in his. I thought that only happened in cliche love stories? Just then the man pushed us off the platform and we went flying over the ship. I was screaming at the top of my lungs while he just laughed beside me. 

When the ride was finally over, we got off and I thought I lost my voice! He still never let go of my hand, but I like it this way. It feels... right. 

"That was awesome! Let's do it again!" He cheered. I shook my head and laughed. 

"I need to get back to my mom" I let go of his hand. "Bye" I turned to walk away but he grabbed my forearm, bringing me to an abrupt stop. I looked at him with a quizzically look. 

"Wait! Can I, uh, get your number?" He asked nervously. I laughed and he started blushing crazily.

"Well, one, I don't know your name. And two, we'll be on this ship for two months. We are most likely to see each-other again. But, I kind of just ditched my mom and I don't want her to worry so... bye!" I said, running off. I wanted to give my number, to be honest, but I think it's more fun to do things this way. I just still hope he's interested...




Today we're making our first stop. Cupid's Island. I don't really want to go here today, and see all the happy couples out, it being Valentine's Day and such. But, this opportunity doesn't come everyday so I should go out and see it. What else is there to do?

I ran my fingers through the mess that was my hair. The wind from the zip-line yesterday made it extra frizzy. I'm too lazy to take a shower so I pulled it up in a messy bun and got dressed. We docked an hour ago, and my mom and sister already left. I said I needed my beauty rest and slept in. They said to make sure I meet them at the ship by 5, since that's when we're leaving. 

I walked off the ship into the misty air and inhaled deeply. I looked at the many signs pointing me in the directions I could go to see some sights. I looked around the area and decided on the beach. You can never go wrong with the beach, right?

I walked to the shore and watched the little kids laugh and enjoy themselves. In the distance I saw a familiar boy sitting by the waves. No... it's him! He's wearing the same beanie and shades! I sneakily sat beside him, without him even noticing. 

"Beautiful, isn't it?" I said, causing him to jump. 

"Rane? He said, looking at the side of my face as I kept my gaze focused on the quiet lapping of the waves. I nodded and he looked back out at the ocean. 

"You know, it's the second most beautiful thing I've seen." He stated. I looked over to him, him still looking at the ocean. 

"What's the first?" He turned, looking at me. I still couldn't see his eyes. 

"You" I blushed. He can't be serious. 

"No really" I said, and he just shook his head. "I am. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever laid eyes on." He took off his shades and revealed his gorgeous blue orbs. I couldn't help but stare into them, caught in a trans. His eyes were the most inviting, pure blue, and gorgeous ever. Next thing I knew, he crashed his lips with mine, sending us into a blissful kiss. I felt sparks shooting through my whole body, starting at my lips. He pulled away and the tingles were still left. I looked at him for another moment. Hold on...

"Holy crap." I said under my breath. I just kissed Louis Tomlinson. 


A/N Heyyooo!!! This is the story I'm going to enter for the Valentine's Day competition. I know I won't win since I'm entering so late, but I decided to do it anyway.
