She's friends with all the other legends of YouTube like JacksGap, Danisnotonfire, AmazingPhil, MarcusButlerTV, PointlessBlog etc. But no one knows that Megan is related to Niall as they agreed not to speak of each other. When Megan reaches 1 million subscribers she asks Niall for a favour. To tell the world they are related. He agrees and together, they make a video announcing the Horan siblings. Little did they know that, that would open up the floodgates. Hate from One Direction fans and her own fans, Trying to keep her relationship with a fellow YouTuber and Keeping her best friends. Can she do it? Read to find out.


3. Chapter 3 - Megan

I skip down the stairs, car keys in hand to go and meet Niall to discuss the video. The house seems eerily quiet. I think nothing of it and walk towards the door, calling out to Carrie.

"Carrie! I'm going out. Be back in a couple hours or so."  When no reply comes, I get curious. Usually, Carrie would've replied saying 'alright' or something. I turn from the door and walk slowly towards the arch leading to the living room.

I walk in and notice the curtains drawn and the lights off. My hand hovers over to the light switch carefully. I suck in a quick breath before flicking the lights on. 


I jump from my skin and stare around the room. The faces of all my friends and fellow YouTubers stare back at me, large smiles on their faces. A banner hangs from the mantelpiece with the words 'Congrats on 1 million!' On it. I mentally facepalm and scold myself for not figuring out the crashes and bangs earlier and then the silent house.

"Where is she?" I ask the crowd. They part like the Red Sea, leaving my curly-haired friend standing alone. I run towards her and hug her. "Thanks." I whisper in her ear. 

"It's nothing. We had to celebrate your 1 million." She tells me. "Now let's get the music on so we can celebrate properly!" She shouts out. Music starts playing and everyone begins dancing. 

"Carrie, I'll just be a minute." I signal to her, holding my pointing finger up. "I gotta call someone." She nods and I rush out the room and upstairs. I dial the number and hope he answers.

"Megs? Where are you?" Niall asks through the phone.

"Sorry, Carrie planned a surprise party to celebrate my subscribers."

"It's alright. But what did you want to talk about anyway?" He asks.

"Well..." I think over how to voice my idea quickly. "Could we reveal the fact that we're siblings to the world in my 1,000,000 video?"

"Reveal that we're siblings? Are you sure?" I nod before remembering that we're not on Skype and he can't see me.

"Yep." I tell him. "Positive." A knock on the door tells me that the YouTubers are getting impatient. "I gotta go rejoin my party. I'll text you or Skype you later, kay?"

"Sure. Talk later, Megs."

"Bye." I hang up and turn to the door. In the open doorway stands Dan.

"Hey Megan. Everything okay?" He asks, stepping towards me.

I nod before saying, "Yep. Just had to call someone and say that I couldn't meet them today."

Dan nods. "Who were you meeting?"

"No one too important." I lie cause in reality, my brother, the world-famous singer is someone important. There are actually a few YouTubers downstairs who are in love with him and the other boys.

"You sure?" Dan confirms. I nod and take his hand.

"Come on. We're missing the party." I pull him down the stairs to find everyone dancing. I smile and release Dan's hand. I give him a quick hug before disappearing into the dancing crowd.

I get a few 'Well done's and a couple 'Congratulation's as I pass people by. I reach 'my' little group of YouTubers and smile as I'm enveloped in a group hug containing Alex, Carrie, Charlie and Bryarly. They all say they congrats before releasing me, only to be enveloped into another hug, this one containing Phil, Chris, PJ and Dan. Like before, they say their congrats and let me go so I can be pulled into yet another group hug. This one is the biggest one containing Marcus, Alfie, Jim, Zoe, Caspar and Joe, my boyfriend. Everyone says their congrats once again and I quietly think to myself that I'm going to be sick of those words by the end of the night. Everyone apart from Joe leaves the hug.

I wrap my arms round Joe's waist and hug him tightly before pulling away. I peck his lips and lean into him as I turn to face everyone else. I then remember why I love being a YouTuber. When you become a successful YouTuber, you join a giant family that looks out for each other. You make great friends that you keep for life. 

I smile and lean my head against Joe's shoulder. "Come on, let's go see some of the other guests here. You don't want to be stuck with us all night." Joe tells me, leading me into the crowd. 

I keep an arm around Joe's waist and he keeps an arm around my shoulder and we walk, saying 'Hello' to many familiar faces. All famous YouTubers. Some of whom were inspirations to me to start my YouTube channel. Not that they know, of course. I never mention it. Just like I never mention my last name. 

If you asked anyone at the party what my last name was, they wouldn't know. No one knows. Not Dan. Not Phil. Not PJ. Not Marcus. Not Caspar. Not Joe or even Carrie. I just never mention it and from the years of avoiding the question, I've developed loads of aversion techniques in case anyone asks.

We walk through the crowd and I soon spot two lads, standing at the side of the room. Keeping themselves to themselves. I peck Joe's cheek and walk over to them.

"Kieran! Danny!" I call above the music. They look over at me and smile. Kieran and Danny are two fairly new YouTubers. Not that popular but pretty cool. I pull them into a quick hug and they tell my the congrats at the same time, almost in sync. "I swear that by the end of the night, I'm going to kill anyone who says that." I joke. "Everyone's saying it."

"Well, this is your party. And it's a congratulations party so they kinda have to say it." Kieran points out. 

"Whatever. Couldn't everyone just say it all at once so I'm not listening to a broken record?"

"That might be possible." Then before I know it, Danny and Kieran have disappeared into the dancing crowd. I sigh and sit down on the sofa which has been pushed towards the wall for more dance space. I lean back and smile, happy to see so many people here.

My vision gets blocked by a pair of hands and a voice says "Guess who?"

"And there's two of us so be careful who you pick." Another voice adds.

"Finn!" The first voice whisper-yells. "You just gave it away!"

"Actually, you just did." The second voice points out.

"Guys, don't argue. It gives me a headache when twins fight." I mutter, "It makes me think that someone's arguing with them self in a mirror." 

The hands disappear from my eyes and I see the two cheery faces of Jack and Finn. They both hug me and tell me 'Well Done.'

"You've joined the big leagues of YouTubers, Meg." Jack says, grinning widely, like always.

"Yep, you're part of the elite YouTubers who are so amazing they break the amazing-scale!" Finn adds.

"Amazing-scale?" I raise one eyebrow at the boy. "What's that?"

"Something I just made up." He explains.

"Oh...kay" I say slowly.

Jack's about to speak when Carrie's voice comes through the speakers.

"Megan, please make your way to the centre of the dance floor." I send quizzical looks to Jack and Finn who just smile and smirk between each other before walking into the centre of the dance floor a.k.a. living room. "Okay, Megan. I was told by two little birdies that you wanted us all to say congratulations at the same time." I slowly nod, worried about what's to come. "So, on three everyone. 1... 2... 3."

As Carrie says '3', everyone choruses in a huge "CONGRATULATIONS, MEGAN!" Just like the 'Surprise' when I walked in. I smile and feel arms wrap around my waist. I turn around and see Joe smiling down at me. I hug into him and soon feel more arms wrapping round me.

We all stand in a giant group hug containing all the party guests for a few minutes til the music starts up again and it's one of my favourite songs by a YouTuber: Your Life Over Mine by BriBry O'Reilly a.k.a. Bribryontour. I stay in a hug with Joe and slowly start to dance with him to the music. 

As I enjoy myself, one question pops into my mind:

Will I still have all this when, or if, I tell everyone about Niall?
