Show me

He met her on a rainy night after his Tour Bus broke down. She knew who he was, and wasn't sure she wanted to take a trip into his world. He wanted a taste of her life, so when he takes a break from the fame to spend time with her, she opens up his eyes to her way of life. A completed Niall Horan story.


9. Camping with penguins, giraffes, and kittens

I had so much fun meeting the boys yesterday. They all seemed like really good and fun guys. Right now I'm preparing for Gracie's birthday celebration with just her and I. Because it's the end of summer, Gracie and I are going to camp out in the backyard for the night. 

I scramble around our basement opening up boxes and looking behind doors trying to find the big blankets and sleeping bags. I spot the last book left un-opened and yank the top off. Of coarse it's the last box I look in. Figures. I haul the box up the stairs, out into the backyard, and into a huge tent. I set down the box and wipe my forehead with my arm. All of a sudden my phone rings.

"Hola?" I say, speaking the only Spanish word I know.

"Hey Trea, It's Niall"

"Hey! What's up?"

"Nothing really, just wondering what you were doing"

"I'm setting up a tent and bags in the backyard for Gracie and I too sleep out here tonight. It's what she wanted to do for her birthday" I throw the blankets down, cradling my phone between my shoulder and my ear.

"Really? Mind if I stop by to help you?" He asks eagerly

"Sure. Come whenever Niall" I say smiling at the thought of him

"Be there in 10"

I hang up and stick my phone in my back pocket. I arrange the blankets around the two sleeping bags, and string up some little colourful lanterns inside the tent. The tent door flaps open and Niall comes walking in, a huge smile on his face.

"There's some wood stacked on the side of the house, if you could get a few and set them by the fire pit, that would be most appreciated" I direct him, and then bend back down to pick up the empty box that held the blankets and lights.

"What, no Hello or anything?" He teases while he walks to wood pile by our house. I smile and shake my head. Traveling back inside, I set down the box and rummage through the shelves for marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers.

A couple hours later, Niall and I managed to set up a fire, pop popcorn, and haul up a portable heater just in case Gracie and I get cold. 

"Thanks for all your help Niall. I really appreciate it" I look up and smile at him, trying not to get too caught up in how cute he looks.

"No problem Tr..." But he gets interrupted by Gracie running at full speed into the backyard knocking both Niall and I over onto the grass. 

"It looks perfect Trea! We're going to have so much fun!" Gracie exclaims, with a wild look in her eyes and a toothy grin. 

"You bet we are. Niall helped me set it all up, so you better thank him too" I ruffle her hair and stand up. 

"Thanks Niall!" She gives him a big hug "Can I ask you something Trea?" She grabs my hand and pulls me aside.

"What is it cupcake?" I ask her

"Can Niall stay for a bit? He can make s'mores with us!" She looks at me eagerly and bounces slightly on her heals waiting for my answer.

"Why don't you go ask him?" I smile as she runs over to Niall to asks him. I hear a 'Sure!' Come from Niall and I walk over to them.

"Come on Gracie, we need to get you into your special birthday pajamas" I grab her hand and lead her and Niall back into the house. We all bound up the stairs and Gracie and I change into the special 'birthday pajamas' That we wear every year. My whole family has matching onezies and we all wear them on birthdays and Christmas. I hand Niall my dads set.

"We did Gracie's family birthday pajama's last night, but she wanted to wear them again tonight. Since your staying, you have to wear them too" I try not to giggle when Niall comes out of the bathroom in florescent green with penguins all over it. My set is a bright purple with giraffes all over them, and Gracie's are neon pink with kittens covering them.
