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.


5. I Wish~Liam


Cara pulls away first, to my dismay.

“Liam,” she whispers, her fingers tracing a pattern down my cheek.  It sends chills down my spine. “I told you; I have a boyfriend.  I’m not the type of girl who would cheat.”  Then she turns away. “I’m going to leave.  It’s been fun hanging out with you guys, but I don’t want to push things anymore.  If I stay any longer, it’s only going to get harder for you and me.”

I watch Cara as she exits the bathroom.  I can faintly hear her voice as she tells the others good-bye.  I close my eyes, and I can picture the brief hugs and the way the door closes behind Cara.

“Hey, mate,” Niall says as he enters the room. “What happened?”

“Cara told me she had to go.  I kissed her again,” I admit.

“Liam!” Niall exclaims.  I can hear the shock in his voice.

I sigh.  “I know.  But I could tell she wanted to kiss me, too.  Except she feels she was being disloyal.”

“She was,” Niall points out. “She has a boyfriend.  If she kisses another guy, it’s cheating.”  He shakes his head.  “I can’t believe you kissed her three times.”

“Once was on a dare,” I point out.

“That’s a technicality.  You still kissed her.”

I sigh again, longer and louder.  “I just want her to be mine.  I’ve never fallen for a girl this quickly.”


We have a show in St. Paul the next night.  The day after that, there’s a show in Minneapolis, but we have the day free.  Niall and I head out to explore the city with a bodyguard.  Several fans come up to us but thankfully not too many. 

It’s early afternoon, and we head into a Starbucks for some refreshments.  My coffee is done first, so I go to grab a napkin while I wait for Niall.  My eyes flicker to a nearby table.  Cara is sitting there, reading a book.  I hesitate as I try to decide if I should approach her.  Another guy heads for her table.  She looks up when he says her name, and then he kisses her on the cheek.

It must be Cara’s boyfriend.  I swallow hard.  He looks like he’s nice.  As the guy sits down across the table from Cara, her eyes meet mine.  Her cheeks turn slightly pink, and I look away.

Oh, how I wish that was me.
