Up All Night

Cara's a Directioner. She's one of the minority that won't freak out when she meets One Direction. And that's what makes one of the boys fall for her. But their love story isn't going to always be perfect. That's what makes them real and ready to stay up all night for each other.


10. Everything About You~Liam

I take a deep breath in the mirror and fix the collar on my button-down shirt.  This is our last day in Minnesota for the entire tour, and I’m taking Cara out on a date before the show.  After all, this’ll be the last time I can see her for quite a while.  The band is touring in the U.S. until October, and then we’re heading back to Europe.

I wave to Niall and Harry—my roommates at this hotel—before heading downstairs with one of our bodyguards.  He escorts me to a car where I hop in the passenger seat.  I already gave the driver Cara’s address—well, her friend’s—in Minneapolis, so I sit back and relax for the drive.  Well, try to relax.  I’m pretty anxious about my first official date with Cara.

Another girl answers the door at the house.

“Hi, Liam,” she says pleasantly. “I’m Holly, one of Cara’s friends.”

“Nice to meet you,” I reply.

Holly invites me inside, and I look around.  The house is very new and very suburban.  A minute passes, and then Cara is coming down the stairs.

She smiles at me tentatively.  She’s dressed perfectly for an afternoon date in a casual blue dress.  I’m more taken by her natural beauty, though.  Her hair is straight with a bit of a wave to it.  Cara is wearing make-up, but not much of it.

“Hi,” Cara says.

“Hey,” I reply, smiling easily.

We say good-bye to Holly, and Cara tells her friend she’ll be back after the concert tonight.  Then we head out.  I found a park along the river, and we go for a walk.  The bodyguard shadows us, but thankfully, there don’t seem to be any fans here.  They’re all probably getting ready for the concert tonight or gathered outside the hotel.

After the walk where we talk for quite awhile, I take her to a coffee shop.  I got one of our assistants to find good local coffee shops, and this one is a bit out of the way so hopefully it’ll be less likely that Cara and I will be recognized.

We linger over our drinks and treats and talk and talk and talk.  It’s like we’re trying to fit months of dates into one afternoon.  I just want to know everything about her.  All too soon, we have to head to the arena.  Cara comes backstage with me, and since we still have some time, we hang out in my private dressing room.  Since I’d bet my place in the band that my mates are pressed up against the door, trying to listen in, we whisper.  Whispering makes everything more romantic, anyways.

“What made you fall for me?” Cara murmurs.  She shifts slightly on the couch, and her head rests on my shoulder.

I gently place my chin on top of her hair and kiss the soft blonde locks.  “Everything about you,” I reply.
