9. A Better Day

 

When I explained to my mom how I got the broken  nose she was little mad at first but then when I told her how many guys it took to pull me off of Allison, she was a little less mad and a little more proud. We went to the clinic down the street and got my nose checked out, turns out it wasn’t really broken thank goodness, but it came close to it. After that I had my normal routine of cleaning Garths stall then getting in the shower and then going to bed. I looked at my phone as I always did before I went to bed and there was a text from Niall saying.

Goodnight J

Niall

He was such a sweet heart and every time I read a text from him I would smile. I put my phone on silent then I went to sleep.

Woke up the next morning and went to look in the mirror and I did not look good. Around my nose and close to my eyes were purple and my nose a little swollen. I didn’t wear makeup but today there was no way that I was stepping out that door without some cover up on. When I got on the bus I got a puzzled stare from my bus driver because you couldn’t completely hide the bruising but it made it look less severe.

We got to school and I knew the guys were going to be talking to me about what happened, and that they girls would be talking to me to about how I left with One Direction. I walked into school and the first thing I heard was.

“Hey, it’s the hulk” From one of my closest guy friends Riley.

“Ha Ha very funny” I said as I slowly walked over to the group of them that were standing by the door.

“Well aren’t you a sight” Said Brett.

“Thanks, wow the compliments just don’t stop do they?” I said as I looked around the group.

The bell rang for first period and we all left for our classes. I got looks from people coming down the hallways and thumbs up from the grade 12 guys that saw the fight yesterday. Then there she was, the only and only Allison. Boy did she look bad, her jaw was purple and swollen and when she walked by people laughed.

“Nice nose” She said as she walked by.

“Thanks, the boys love it!” I said. She didn’t have a response she just rolled her eyes and continued walking. I gave a giggle then continued on to my class.

The rest of the day went pretty well, me and Kristen walked to Subway for lunch and then we chilled in the cafeteria for the last 20 minutes.

“Hey are you busy after school today?” Asked my friend Carly.

“Yeah Niall and the rest of the boys are picking me up today then I think we are going out after, not to sure. Why?” The way I said Niall and the rest of the boys were picking me up sounded so normal to me, but not to the rest of the girls. Their jaws hit the floor and they asked.

“Niall?” Meaning they wanted to know the last name.

“Horan” I said with a smile. They could not believe their ears. They asked me a bunch of questions like how it happened and if we were dating or not.

“No, were not dating, at least I don’t think we” I said with a chuckle. I never really knew if me and Niall were a couple or not. The way he treated me, was like he wanted to be a couple but I wasn’t too sure.

I had math and English for my last too classes, which was good because they were my favourite my favourite classes with my favourite teachers. So it went by quickly. The bell rang signalling the end of the day and I couldn’t help but practically run out the door and down the hall to my locker. I wasn’t sure if they were going to be here right on time or if they were going to be a few minutes late. So I got my stuff then met up with a few friends in the foyer. It was a beautiful day outside so we decided to go and wait in the field outside the school. We got to the filled and I was looking around keeping an eye out for their van. I didn’t see a van anywhere. I thought they were just late so I just continued talking to everyone. When I heard loud music coming from the parking lot nearby. Everyone looked around and there was a big black jeep sitting in the parking with the doors and open, and standing in front of the jeep was Niall, Harry and Louis. They were all doing a little dance at the side of the car. I laughed at them then waved and started walking over. I got to the jeep and realized that “Stand Up” was playing; they knew that was my favourite song so I started doing a little dance too.

“Oh yeah MacKenzie, he’s a real catch” I turned around to see Allison standing there. She had just insulted Niall and that was like telling me to come over there and slap her. I dropped my purse and started walking over there when I suddenly wasn’t walking on the ground anymore. I was in the air.

“No, no, no. You promised!” Said Niall. But it wasn’t Niall who was picking me up. Harry had his arms around my waist, and Louis had come up in front of my and was grabbing my feet.

“Aw, come on! Please it will only take a minute!” Louis laughed, but they both continued to carry me towards the jeep. Niall opened the door and they gently placed me in the seat.

“You guys are no fun” I said, but I couldn’t help but say it with a smile. Louis smiled back at me then climbed into the seat next to me and closed the door. Niall was driving and Harry was in the passenger side seat. Niall turned down the music then looked at me through the rear view mirror.

“So how was today?” He asked.

“Today was good, got a lot of thumbs up from the grade 12’s that saw yesterday incident. And everyone thought I looked pretty good with a bruised face” I said with a laugh as I looked through my text messages.

“It does look pretty bad ass” Chuckled Harry as he glanced back at me.

“So where are we going?” I asked

“I’m going to drop Harry and Louis back off at the hotel and then I am taking you out for dinner! And don’t worry I already talked it over with your parents and it’s alright” He said with a smile. A gave a sigh of relief knowing that I wasn’t going to be the one who had to call my mom and ask if I could go out with Niall. I looked down at my outfit and realized that what I was wearing wasn’t really a date outfit. I was wearing my black “Roxy” flip flops, with my jeans and a plain black t-shirt.

“Umm, have you seen what I am wearing? Could we at least stop by my place and grab me a change of clothes?” Niall looked at me again in the rear view mirror and shook his head.

“Don’t worry I already have that figured out too” Said Niall, he then looked over at Harry and nodded his head towards Harry’s feet. Harry leaned forward and picked up a bag. It was from “Forever XXI”. I took the bag and looked inside to see a little black summer dress and a pair of black wedges.

“Really?” I said.

“Hey, I picked that out for you!” Yelled Louis.

“Well, ok that was a lie. The lady in the store said this would be nice” Louis and Harry burst out laughing.

“How did you know my shoe size or dress size?” I asked puzzled.

“We talked to your mom remember!” I had completely forgotten about that. Thank goodness I always carried extra elastics, bobby pins and a little bottle of hairspray in my purse. You know, in case I was ever in a situation like this. I wanted to try it on so badly, I couldn’t wait until we got into the city, and the traffic right now was awful. So I unclipped my seat belt and crawled into the back of the jeep.

“Everyone keep their eyes forward!” I said as I crawled into the back seat. I put the dress on over my jeans a shirt first, and then slid off my jeans. This was a very difficult this to do because a) they were skinny jeans and b) it was in a tight space with not much room to move. I finally manoeuvred them off and then took my arms out of my t-shirt. This part was much easier because the dress was strapless. Thank goodness I was wearing my lucky bra and it happened to be a strapless, so I unhooked the straps then crawled back into my seat. I reached forward and put on the shoes, they were so cute. The wedge looked like wood and it had cute straps that twirled partway up my leg. I through my hair up in a ponytail and then twirled it into a bun. I had Louis helping me by holding my bobby pins and hair spray. I took them back and said thank you. I sprayed my hair spray all over making sure that there were no loose hairs sticking up.

“Ok, were all good” I said with a smile. By the time I was done we had gotten to the hotel. Louis got out then helped me get out because I was going to scoot into the front seat beside Niall. I was about to get into the jeep when Harry grabbed my hand and spun me around.

“You look lovely by the way” Said Harry. Louis nodded in agreement. He then leaned forward and whispered in my ear.

“He has been talking about this all day, he is quite excited” He pulled back and Louis had a smile on his face, he was looking into the jeep at Niall who I’m sure had a big grin on his face too. I gave Louis and Harry a hug good bye and they both gave me a little peck on the cheek. I got into the jeep and waved to them as we drove out of their sight. For a few minutes we drove in silence. Until Niall finally started talking.

“So do you have plans for the summer?” He asked.

“I might do a little bit of showing on Garth, but other than that not really. Why do you ask?” He was starting to peak my curiosity.

“Well I have been talking to Paul, and this summer we are planning on doing some touring. And Louis and Liam always miss their girlfriends and complain that they don’t get to see them as often as they want. So they asked Paul if they could possibly come along, like on another bus but follow along with us on the road.” He was noticing that I was leaning more and more forward in my seat, I was so excited about what he was about to tell me. “And I think that I would really miss you too during the summer, so I was wondering if you wanted to come along with us on tour this summer” His whole was light up with excitement as he waited for my response.

I leaned back in my seat trying to process this all through my brain. Niall had just asked me if I wanted to go on tour with him. This was unbelievable. But I came back to reality and thought about my parents and what they would think about this.

“Niall, that sounds like the most amazing thing ever, but what about my parents. I don’t know what they would say!” I thought he would look a little more upset, but his smile only got bigger.

“While you were at school today I went to your house and talked to your parents. I told them in person about this and they said it would be fine”

“NIALL ARE YOU SERIOUS!?” My eyes were starting to well up with tears a little bit. But I forced them back not wanting to ruin the cover up on my face. “OF COURSE I WILL COME!” He was laughing at my excitement but I could tell he was just as excited as I was. I hadn’t realized that we had been parked for about 5 minutes now, we were in front of the olive garden downtown. He leaned over and gave me a hug and said.

“Good” The hug lasted a while, then we finally stopped and he got out of the car and came around the other side to open my door for me. There were a few fans around, but Niall just put his arm around my waist and guided me inside. We walked in and the lady at the front desk’s eye got really wide a big smile came across her face.

“Hi, only two today?” She asked, she sounded way too happy; it was almost a little annoying. Niall nodded and then she guided us to the back of the restaurant in a booth so that we could have a little privacy.

We sat down and the waiter came over and took our orders for drinks and then left in a hurry. We would be getting pretty good service tonight.

“So where exactly are you going on tour?” I thought it would be good for me to know at least where I would be going as well.

“We are traveling all over the place, Paul will give you all that information later” He said with a smile.

The waiter came back with our drinks and then took our orders for food, we gave him them and the he took our menu’s and rushed off once more.

“So Danielle, you and Eleanor will be sharing your own bus so you guys have your own privacy, and also we can’t fit too many more people into our bus” He said with a chuckle.

“Oh my goodness, I’m going to meet Danielle and Eleanor!” I gave a little shriek of excitement then managed to calm myself down.  Not too long after our meals finally came and they smelt delicious, I got the chicken penne and Niall was having the spaghetti with meat balls. We ate silently for the first few minutes just enjoying our food, then later we were talking until we finished our meal and the waiter came back to take our plates. He asked if we wanted desserts but both Niall and I were stuffed from the meals we just had. Niall got the bill and we walked up to the front to pay. He took my hand and we walked through the parking lot towards the jeep. We were holding hands as if we were a couple, but now I just needed to know if we were or not. Before he left tonight I had to ask.

I had to know.
