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.


11. One Thing~Cara

I’ve got a front row seat again.  There’s a bodyguard near me because of all the backlash on Twitter, but the fans around me are super nice.  We chat at breaks, and I even say I’ll get the boys to follow them on Twitter.  I know what it’s like to want a follow from a member of One Direction, so I’m more than happy to help out fellow Directioners.

I’m filming this concert, too.  Liam starts to reach for my phone again during “Back for You,” but I quickly grab the phone from the fan next to me and hand it up to Liam instead.  I’ve had my opportunity to have One Direction use my camera phone onstage; other Directioners need their chance.

I really wish Megan could be here with me.  She’s as much of a Directioner as me.  But her family lives in Wisconsin, and she went home for the summer.

Once again, after this concert, there are fans with backstage passes.  I hang out in Liam’s dressing room while I wait for him.  He told me to help myself to any of the food, so I munch on some chips and a couple cookies.  My fingers dance across the clothes on the rack—Liam’s various outfits for the concert.  They’ll be loaded up soon, since the guys are leaving for Kansas City bright and early tomorrow morning.

There’s a scrapbook-like thing laying on an end table.  Curiously, I pick it up and begin to thumb through it.  Instantly, I regret it.  There’re photos from when One Direction first started and little mementos from The X-Factor and the various concerts.  But there’s also photos of Liam and Danielle, and things like a Chinese takeout menu—perhaps their favorite place to get dinner?—and a teddy bear sticker, and a flower petal.  I almost feel like I’m looking at a girl’s scrapbook, but the style and un-craftiness of it implies that this is Liam’s creation.

I knew Liam had been with Danielle—I’m a Directioner after all—but it’s just weird to think of the guy I’m dating having girlfriends before me.  Plus, to see all these memories…why would Liam keep all this stuff if he wasn’t over Danielle?

“Hey, Cara,” says Liam, whistling cheerfully.  The backstage meet-and-greet must be over.

I panic a bit when I remember I’m still holding the open scrapbook.  But Liam isn’t freaked out.

“Did you see the second page?” he says with a laugh. “Crazy stuff, huh?”

I flip back to it and stare at the pictures of Liam, Harry, Niall, Louis, and Zayn towards the beginning of their friendship and time as a band.

“Yeah,” I finally reply.

I turn to Liam and hand him the scrapbook, pretending nothing is wrong.

“I can’t wait to put pictures of us in here,” he tells me, tucking the book under his arm.

I fake a smile.  “Can you do one thing for me?”

“Anything,” Liam says readily.

“Kiss me.”

And he does.
