Chapter 13

The Meeting Room

Aria’s POV

So, I got smacked in the face, and Ed had watched me ever since. Or at least, that’s what Dakota kept telling me, or screaming at me, I guess would be more appropriate.

“D, why don’t you think about squirrels?” I asked her as we walked to the meeting room. She smiled at me and I had no doubt she’d taken my suggestion. I rolled my eyes.

“Here’s the room,” Selena pointed out. Sure enough. It said “Meeting room” right on the door.

We went in. There were a few couches and chair, some beanbags, and some cushions in a pile on the floor. The girls and I all piled into a couch.  Sasha and Selena were talking excitedly about the previous events. A security guard had come to us at the end of the concert and explained that someone wanted to see us and instructed us of where we should go, which was why we were here.

The door opened and Paul Higgins walked in. He smiled at us. “Hi, which one of you was in seat A6?”

“She was,” Dakota says, pointing at Victoria, who nodded, blushing.

“Well, Mr. Horan wanted to meet you, so he’ll be in soon with the rest of the boys. Do you need anything until then?”

Everyone shook their heads.

“Alright then. See you girls later.” Paul walked out, shutting the door behind him, leaving us wide-eyed girls to stare in astonishment at Victoria.

She obviously had no idea what was going on either. “He winked at me… I didn’t think it meant anything,” she muttered.

Suddenly all the girls, including myself, were squealing happily. The door opened and we stopped in anticipation. Whoever was outside stopped for a moment on the other side of the door. They stayed that way for a painfully long second. I was about to scream from the tension. The door opened all the way then, revealing some of the most gorgeous faces on earth.

Niall walked in first, followed by pairs, Liam and Louis, and Harry and Zayn, who immediately piled on the couch opposite us. They were wearing different clothing than they had been on stage and Niall’s hair looked damp, like he’d just washed it. The boys were laughing about something, but us girls were frozen in an awkward silence. They waved at us.

“Hello, girls,” Louis said.

We stared at him. I smiled a bit as the other girls either waved, murmured “hi,” or blushed.

“So, Niall here want to know what your name is,” Harry told Victoria bluntly.

“I’m Victoria. But you can call me Tori,” she said softly, blushing hard.

“Oh look, they’re matching tomatoes!” Louis yelled, making me jump. He noticed. “Sorry love, I didn’t mean to give you a fright.” He smiled softly.

I smiled. “That’s alright. I’m just a little…”

“Nervous?” Zayn finished for me after I trailed off.

“Yeah, that sums it up.”

“Don’t be,” Harry added. “So, what are the rest of your names?”

And with that question, I suddenly couldn’t remember my name. Dakota found her voice first. “I’m Dakota.” She pointed to Selena. “That’s Selena or Lena. Next to her is Sasha.” She wrapped and arm around me. And this is Ari.” She smiled and then corrected herself. “Aria. We call her Ari or Air.”

The boys all smiled. “It’s really nice to be able to meet you girls,” Liam said sweetly.

The girls all said something polite back. It was getting really hot in the room. I felt a little lightheaded. “I’m going to get some air,” I told them and got up with extra care, trying to ignore the slight darkening as I stood. The girls nodded and smiled, a bit preoccupied. My hands shook slightly as I turned the knob on the door. No one seemed to notice and I slipped out into the hallway, which, fortunately, was a bit cooler, but my heart was fluttering quickly and I could hear its beat in my ears.

I took a shaky, deep breath. This had come out of nowhere. Someone was coming down the hall, out of a door, but my vision had some black spots across it that made everything a bit harder to see. As they neared, I caught a glimpse of red hair before my grip on the wall loosened and the world slipped into blackness.
