There's a boy I used to know - he's the one I dream of...

1. The first time..

The first time I ever saw him I was 5 years old, my mum had taken me to a new daycare nursery, I had spent the entire first day crying so much that my face resembled a stodgy pink dough ball and clinging desperately to the plump leg of Aunty Brenda a nice, cuddly lady that worked there.

By day 2, I had come to the devasted realisation that my cruel mother no longer loved me and would in all probability be abandoning me there each day for the foreseeable future.  

After some gentle persuasion by Aunty Brenda I allowed myself to be coaxed to a play area where random Barbie dolls with matted tangled hair lay in varying states of undress, the other girls there already knew each other and in that special way that only kids have ignored me in a completely oblivious way,  I selected a real beauty from the smattering of dolls that were left, she looked like she'd had gok wan makeover, half her hair had been removed by some sort of blunt instrument and someone had lovingly given her full make over using nothing but orange and purple felt tip pens. 

By day 3 my confidence was growing and with nervous trepidation, I decided to approach the play area that I really liked the look of, the cars and track awesome!!..I had older brothers and had learned from a young age how much fun cars could be.. that's where I found him, on him on his hands and knees making brumming noises and propelling a small Yellow sports car with red stripes around the track..I was still feeling shy but he was a friendly little boy and soon got me joining in his game, by the time my mum came to collect me I didn't want to leave but the boy said shall we play again tomorrow? Oh yeah!!! and that's how it continued everyday from then on I was blissfully happy just me and my new best friend and our shared love of cars.

Then one day it happened, we arrived at Nursery and as usual I raced over to the cars but he wasn't there?, I searched for him but he was nowhere to be found, I asked Aunty Brenda "Aah it's bad news pet, his family has moved away and he won't be coming here anymore"..my heart sank like a stone,  I went back to the cars and knelt down by the lonely track we'd once shared, at home time Aunty Brenda caught me as I was leaving - "oh" Joely she said "I nearly forgot, young Niall left you a present - and he said you're not to forget about him, cos he doesn't want to play cars with anybody else".. I looked down at Nialls little yellow and red car and knew I would treasure it always..

14 years passed and I never saw him again..until one day, I turned on the TV and there he was, part of a mega popular new boyband called One Direction, I couldn't believe my eyes - my Niall!!, still as gorgeous as ever and famous too.. Wow! I ran to school and told my friends, predictably they didn't believe a word of it  I think they used words like  'fantasist' & 'nutjob'..hmm...what nice friends i've got!  but I knew the truth....

We all rapidly became crazy mad fans of the band and I hoped and prayed  that one day i'd get to speak to Niall again but didn't hold out too much hope until I heard the band were going to do a concert in my home town and would be flying in to our local airport the next day which also just happened to be Valentines day, it just had to be a sign!.   My friends and I got to the airport as early as we could to try and see the boys, but the crowds were just too huge we had no chance.. then all of a sudden they were there... oh my god I screamed Niall's name so loudly, but so did 200 hundred other girls and quick as a flash the boys had got into their limo and were gone.. I was so disappointed I couldn't move my legs, I stayed routed to the spot for an age as hot salty tears ran down my cheeks.  That's when I spotted one of the bands bodyguards was still there, he had been left behind to make sure that the fans were ok  and to oversee the cleanup of the airport follwoing the departure of 500 plus fans.. it was then I had the idea "excuse me" I said to him "will you please give this  to Niall for me?  it's just a little thing but I hope he'll remember", I also gave him my number and begged him to deliver it...

That evening I prayed like i'd never prayed before and the finally just as i'd nearly given up all hope, Niall called - he said he'd looked for me but hadn't been able to find me because he didn't know my surname, he said he'd never forgotten me and we arranged to meet the next day after his concert and then just as he said good night he said this, "my beautiful Joely",  "you're the only girl i've ever loved.. will you be my valentine forever?"......
