5. Too good to be true

“The way he held my hand last night I mean I should’ve been the happiest girl alive but I just couldn’t keep my eyes off Louis, Lauren this is terrible!” Clara cried. I wasn’t sure what to say, I could tell her to go for Harry but then she’d say she wanted Louis, then if I said go for Louis she’d find some reason why she wanted Harry. “Well Clara, do whatever you feel is right. I don’t know how you feel when you’re around either of them so I honestly couldn’t tell you who’s better.”  I told her, trying my best to sound reassuring. I knew that Harry seemed pretty into her, but Lou looked at her with these “I want to know more about you” eyes that would make me melt if Niall beamed them at me. Almost as if reading my mind Clara said “I want Louis to look at me the way Niall looks at you, as if there’s no other girl for him.” HA, Niall Horan looking at me like that, doubt it! She was probably mixing up the “she’s so beautiful” and the “Who’s this Canadian bird?” looks. “Clara trust me, Niall doesn’t look at me with any special looks, he looks at me the way he looks at everyone else.” I reassured her. Thoughts raced through my mind at this point. Did Niall really look at me differently? Was Clara right about what she said? There’s no way. . I can’t be no superman, but for you I’ll be super human...God damn phone just wouldn’t stop going off, I picked it up to read the message.


Text from Niall xx.


Heey Babes it’s Niall, so the boys and I have our concert tonight but I was wondering if maybe you wanted to do something before let me know. P.s you looked absolutely smokin’ last night ;) xx.


                I smiled so huge I could barely feel my cheeks anymore. Clara jumped over her bed and grabbed my phone right out of my hands. She read the message and began jumping up and down. She looked at me and said “You NEED to go with him Lauren, you’ll regret it if you don’t!” “But I barely know him Clara!” “So! Get to know him!” That was all it took, I was sold. I was going on a “date” with Niall Horan from One Direction and I had only known him for a few days. Baby let me find out your secret... Clara got a text! She looked to see who it was from and it said Louis, she handed me the phone and said she didn’t want to read it so I had to do it for her.


Text to Clara from Louis


Heeey Clara it’s Louis, I heard that Niall is going to be taking my sister somewhere before the concert tonight and I was wondering if maybe I could do the same with you. Get back to me asap, xx.


I read the text out loud and she nearly fainted again. I mimicked her inspirational speech she had given me only moments early and we both burst out giggling. We were both going on dates with One Direction, well 1/5 of One Direction each.


                “I can’t go Lauren.” Clara looked at me and said with a straight face. “And why the fuck not?” I replied. “Cause I have nothing to wear.” Oh dear god she was full of excuses. Louis wasn’t the hardest to impress. “Throw something with stripes on and you’ll have him wrapped around your finger.” She giggled when I said this. It was getting close to date time so I knew I had to help her as well as get myself ready. She came out in a pair of jeans a striped shirt, she looked absolutely fantastic. “Sweet baby Jesus Clarabelle! You clean up good.” I said knowing that it would make her feel great. She looked at herself in the mirror and I could tell she agreed. I didn’t really care what I wore so I threw on a pair of jeans and a long sleeve top and called it an outfit. We looked at each other and both drew in a huge breath. This was it, either this date went completely magically or I left the date wanting to die in a hole. Option two seemed more probable.


 Knock...Knock...Knock... Someone was here! We looked at each other again this time not breathing and our eyes wide. It could be Niall or Louis, but how would we find out. I knew Clara wasn’t going to make her way downstairs to answer the door so I grew myself a set of lady balls and walked downstairs to answer the door. “That’s what you’re wearing to go out with Niall? He’ll probably just be in sweatpants.” Louis said with laughter in his voice. “Well yeah don’t wanna get too dressed up in case it goes badly.” I replied. He was holding a bouquet of white roses, which I knew were Clara’s absolute favorites. Such a gentleman he was, if he wasn’t my brother I’d consider going on a date with him. “CLARA! LOUIS’ HERE! GET YOUR ASS DOWN HERE!” I yelled up the stairs. You could hear her cursing about something upstairs and I couldn’t help but laugh. “Don’t worry Lauren; your date with Niall will be fine. If he hurts you, I’ve got your back. That’s what brothers are for aren’t they?” Louis whispered. That was the first time Louis had said that he’s got my back which made me feel even better. Clara finally made it to the bottom of the stairs and Louis had watched her the entire way down, never once redirecting his gaze. He was so obviously smitten over her, it was so cute. He handed her the flowers and her face went completely red. He put his hand on her lower back as they turned to walk down the drive. Soon it was only me, waiting for her date to come along with flowers and take her someone romantic. Actually I would be just as happy to spend another car ride with Niall, that’s just how much I loved being around him.


It’s been about an hour since Clara and Louis left and it was an hour closer to the concert time. Maybe he’d forgotten, or maybe he just chickened out and didn’t have the decency to tell me he wasn’t coming. I could feel my emotions getting the best of me and a tear ran down my cheek. Shit. I was such a baby, I cried over everything. So what, Niall Horan didn’t show, his loss right? Wrong... Clara was now home and as the two walked through the door hand in hand seeming more smitten than ever their faces went blank. Clara saw me crying, curled up on her couch and released Louis’ hand to come console me. “Babes what happened? Was it a bad date?” she said, with evident concern in her voice. “He didn’t even show...” I whispered. Clara wrapped her arms around me and we sat there for a few minutes. Then I stood up and made my way towards the staircase. On my way over Louis quickly snatched me up into a loving embrace and was rubbing the back of my head. “His loss Lauren, I told you I’ve got your back. I’ll talk to him, I promise. No one hurts my little sisters and gets away with it.” He said his voice calm but still had a hint of anger. He kissed my forehead and I continued up the stairs, Clara and Louis’ voices getting further and further away. What a terrible day, and I still had to see him tonight whether I liked it or not. I wasn’t sure how everything was going to play out; all I know is that never again shall I get my hopes up for a date.
