5. A day with the others


Summer Love

Chapter Four


I was going for a run on the beach when I heard someone call my name. I turned my head to see who was calling me and the next thing I knew, I felt something hard hit my face. I fell to the ground and looked up at the huge palm tree I had crashed into. I placed my hand against my cheek. It burned, but there would probably only be a little bruise. Just then, I felt a pair of arms pull me up as someone chuckled,

“Well I guess it’s not a good idea to distract you when you are running.”

I turned around to see it was Louis who had spoken and it was Zayn who had pulled me up.

“You okay love?” Niall asked.

“Yea, I’m fine.”

I saw Niall, Liam, Louis, Zayn and three other girls I didn’t know standing in front of me.

“Well Summer, this is my girlfriend Perrie,” Zayn said nodding towards a petite blonde girl.

“This is my girlfriend Danielle.” Liam said as he put his arm around one of the other girls.

“And this here,” Louis began, “Is Harry’s girlfriend, Eleanor.”

My face dropped. Harry had a girlfriend? But what about our date? What about last night? Just then, Louis burst into laughter, “I’m KIDDING! El here couldn’t get her hands on Haz, so she settled for me.”

Eleanor laughed, “No silly Boo Bear. You were always my first choice.”

“Anyways…” Niall said, changing the subject, “Harry’s sister is in town for the weekend, well actually just north of Miami, but he went to visit her, so we have uneven teams for volleyball. Do you want to join us?”

I shrugged, “Sure, but I’m not very good at it.”

“It’s okay. So the teams are Liam, Eleanor, Perrie and myself against Louis, Zayn, Danielle and you. Sounds good?” Niall asked

“Perfect. Let’s play.”


We spent that entire morning playing beach volleyball. We played 9 games and my team won all but one of them.

“Are you sure you suck?” Danielle asked me as we walked off the courts.

“Okay, well maybe I played on my school’s team from grade eight all the way until when I finished high school.” I admitted and she laughed.

“So who’s hungry? Because I sure am.” Niall said

“When are you not hungry Nialler?” Eleanor asked.

“Never. But let’s go to Nando’s!”

“Niall, I hate to tell you this, but the nearest Nando’s is an hour away.” I sighed and Niall’s face just dropped,

“What? Nando’s is an hour away?” he asked. He sounded like a five year old who had just been told there was no more candy. I laughed,

“Nah, I’m just kidding, it’s a five minute walk from here.”

Everyone started laughing as Niall placed his hand on his chest and let out a deep sigh of relief,

“Thank god. You had me scared for a minute… wait, I thought you weren’t a fan of us, how did you know that lying to me about Nando’s would freak me out?” Niall asked

“My little sister, Kristy, is a huge fan of you guys. I have seen all the video diaries, watched all of the interviews, heard all the songs, and watched the music videos etc., so I know a lot about you guys. My sister loves you guys.”
“But you don’t?” Liam said with a puppy face. Danielle playfully slapped him and Liam smiled.

“No, I love you guys. I’m not a full on Directioner like my sister, but I do listen to your music all the time and stuff.”

“Well we are even cooler in person.” Louis said

“You are.”


We finally got to Nando’s and we all walked in. We sat down and the waitress was at our table almost instantly,

“Hello, welcome to Nando’s. What can I get you kids?”

We all ordered and our food came quickly. We ate and chatted and I got to know them all better.

“So Summer, enough about us. Why don’t you tell us about yourself? I mean, Harry doesn’t shut up about how awesome you are, but he doesn’t tell us anything about you.” Louis said. I blushed when he told me that Harry talked about me a lot.

“Well what do you guys want to know?” I asked

“Just give us your quick life story.” Danielle said

“Um, okay. I was born in Nebraska. My mom left about two weeks after I was born, because my parents had me at sixteen and her parents weren’t happy about me, so my mom dropped me off at my dad’s house and disappeared. I lived in Nebraska until I was 10, then we moved here to Miami. About five years ago, my dad got a call saying his best friend and his wife had died. They had a daughter who was going to an adoption agency, but my dad didn’t want her to, so he adopted her. I call Kristy my sister because she had always been a little sister to me. For the past seven years, my dad has been dating Sandra, and she is so nice. She is only nine years older than I am, which is a little weird, but I don’t let it bug me. And in the fall, I will be attending Yale University in Connecticut.”
“Wow, Yale is an amazing school. What are you going for?” Eleanor asked

“I am going for journalism and my English degree. I want to be an author or journalist.”

“Two amazing jobs.” Zayn said, “What about after university? Where do you see yourself?”
“Somewhere in Europe; London or Paris.”
“I will choose for you, London.” Niall laughed. Then we heard a beep and Niall pulled out his phone, read the text message and then sighed, “Guys, Harry locked himself out of the house.”

We all laughed.

“Oh Haz… well one of us should go let him in.” Zayn said, trying to stop laughing.
“Let’s all go and we can leave the girls here to chat, if that’s okay with you girls.” Liam added.

“Sure, it’s fine with me.” Danielle said happily.

“Me too.” El and Perrie said at the same time. Liam turned to me,

“Summer, is it okay if I leave you alone with these three crazy chicks?”

I nodded and laughed. The guys all got up and left. The girls seemed really nice and I was excited to spend time with them
