2. Chapter 2 - Niall

I quickly click the 'X' of my internet browser and spin round in the computer chair to face the door. "Come in." I call out to one of the boys who wait on the other side.

The door opens and Louis' head appears. "Hey Ni, Dinner's nearly ready." I nod and hop up from my seat.

"What is it, tonight?" I ask Louis as we jog down the wooden steps to the living room.

"I think it's chicken fajitas. Harry's cooking, obviously." He reports, hopping over the sofa arm and landing on the cream fabric. He pulls his laptop onto his thighs and begin searching something. I look around the room and see that most of the boys are on their laptops. Zayn's on his on the opposite sofa while Liam texts someone, sitting on the same sofa as Louis.

I walk to the door joining the kitchen to the living room and spot Harry moving the cuts of white chicken around a wok. He looks up at me and smiles before looking back at the chicken, being careful not to burn it.

"Hey Niall." He says, keeping his gaze on the chicken.

"Hey Haz. How's the chicken coming?"

"Good. Should be ready in about 5 minutes." He tells me. 

"Great. I'm starved." 

"When aren't you, Niall?" Harry asks with a small smirk.

"Ha ha, Harry." I say slowly and sarcastically. "Very funny." 

"I know, I'm hilarious, right?" Harry turns from the cooking chicken and looks at me as he speaks. "Sometimes I think I should be a stand-up comedian instead of a singer." 

"As long as you don't burn the chicken, you can be whatever you want." I tell him, noticing more smoke coming from the chicken than normal.

Harry turns his attention back to the chicken and curses under his breath as he rushes to turn the heat down. "Language!" Liam's voice calls from the living room as Harry says some colourful words.

"Whatever, Liam." Harry rolls his eyes and he stabs a piece of chicken with a fork and lifts it to his mouth. He takes a bite and nods, dropping the left over chicken into his mouth. "Niall, heat up the wraps, please." I nod and grab the plate with thin wraps on it. I slip the plate into the microwave and press a few buttons. The microwave lights up with an orange glow and Harry calls for the other boys to come through.

When the microwave beeps, I open the door and give everyone two wraps. They then line up by Harry who dishes out the fillings. Once I get my fajita filling, I set my plate down on the counter and fold the wrap up around the chicken. 

We all sit in the living room while we eat, Louis' back on his laptop and Liam's checking his phone.

"Guys! NerdyNinja posted a new video a couple days ago." Louis squeals, halfway through his food.

"Really? What's it about?" Zayn asks as all the others crowd round Louis' laptop to see.

"Well, the video's called 'Yetis, Sea Monsters and... Catching a Cold'." I sigh and continue eating, not paying attention.

"Niall, don't you want to watch the video?" Harry asks, looking back at me from over his shoulder.

"Nah, I'm good guys." I tell them before eating my last bite. "I'm probably going to go to bed." So I don't have to see you all drool over 'NerdyNinja'. 'NerdyNinja' is my sister's YouTube username and the boys all love her. Of course, they don't know she's my sister so I can't really blame them. 

"Okay, goodnight Niall."

"Night Ni."

"Sweet Dreams Niall."

"Night Niall."

I wave my hand in reply before walking up the stairs and heading into my room. When I step through my door, I spot my phone lighting up. I grab it from its place on the duvet and see that I have a message from Megan. 

FROM: Megsie, MyWeeSister

MESSAGE: Hey Niall. Guess what! I got 1,000,000 subscribers on YouTube! 1 of my dreams has finally come true. I was actually crying. I have a favour to ask of you thought. Text me ASAP please.

I smile, proud of my older sister. I tap the reply button and type a message back.

To: Megsie, MyWeeSister

MESSAGE: Congratulations! I knew you'd do it! What did you want to ask?

I press send and push my laptop open. I open the internet browser and type in the address for YouTube. I then go to my subscriptions and click my sister's username. I spot the 1,000,000 subscribers at the top and feel a surge of proud brother-ness sweep through me. I scroll down and click on the latest video, the one the boys are watching downstairs.

I wait as it loads and when it does, slow, sad music plays. The screen fades in, revealing a small wooded area. Megan walks onscreen, her brown hair in a loose, side plait. She looks into the camera and smiles, her sapphire eyes lighting up as she does.

"Aloha, mon amis." She says, her voice calm. "So, I haven't been uploading any videos lately. But there's a good reason." Megan walks over to a fallen tree and sits down. She looks right into the camera and smiles, tapping the space on the trunk next to her. "Come and sit and I'll tell you all about it." The camera moves over to Megan and moves down as if the cameraperson is sitting next to her. "Well, it all started about a week ago." The screen fades to black before an animated scene fades in.

An animated Megan walks onscreen in a woody background. "I was walking home from my friend's house when out of the trees, a large monster jumped out. He scared me out of my skin. He came closer to me and I saw a very hairy man." As Megan's voice speaks, the animated story continues. "'Help me.' The hairy man said. 'Okay.' I said, deciding to be kind. 'Thank you, strange girl. My name is George and I'm a Yeti.' He introduced himself to me very politely. 'It's nice to meet you George. I'm Megan. How can I help?' I asked him as a cold wind blew around me.

"'I need to get home to my Mum and Dad. They live in the forest past the lake but I'm too scared to go alone.' George explained. I nodded and said, 'Don't worry. I'll get you home safe and sound.'. So I lead him down the path but as we approached the lake, he stopped. 'I can't.' He told me. I inquired to why and he replied with 'There's a monster in the lake!'. I shook my head and took his hand, telling him that I'd look after him and that there's no monster in the lake. We got half past the lake when a lizard-like creature slithered from the water. 'Give me the Yeti!' The creature hissed at me. 'No.' I said stubbornly. 'Get outta our way. Or I'll turn you into roadkill.' I threatened."

By now the animation was showing a large Nessie-like creature glaring down at a very annoyed looking Megan. "The creature laughed a hiss-like laugh. It kept laughing and laughing for 10 minutes straight. Then I got annoyed and punched the lizard in the nose. It howled in pain and slipped back into the water. I then turned back to George and lead him to the forest where two larger Yetis were standing. 'George!' One cried, rushing to him. 'Thank you for taking our son back.' Said the other. George waved me goodbye and walked into the depths of the forest with his parents and I turned back to head home.

When I did I noticed that I had gotten something else other than a sense of happiness from helping George. I'd caught a cold." The animation ended with a picture of animated Megan lying in bed with a cold and then the animation faded into the real image of Megan in bed. As the screen faded black again, the credits rolled.

'Animated by Megan & PJ Liguori. Written by Megan. Starring Megan. Filmed by PJ.' 

I looked back to my phone and saw a reply.

From: Megsie, MyWeeSister

MESSAGE: Could we meet up tomorrow? How about in Starbucks?

I reply saying 'Sure' and confirming a few other details before plugging my phone in to charge and shutting my laptop down. I hop from my bed and jog into my en suite where I brush my teeth and use the toilet. When I renter my room, I strip down to my boxers and pull on a white t-shirt and a pair of pajama bottoms before slipping under my duvet. I fall asleep, thinking about Megan's latest video.
