Miss Mackenzie

Jamie-Leigh Mackenzie is nothing special. Ok, her distant cousin is Ed Sheeran and they're quite close but... Nothing too special.


1. Chapter 1

"Come on Leigh! We'll be late, Mum told me to make sure you came on time!" Ed called up the stairs.

I straightened the last section of my hair and skipped down the stairs, grabbing my converses from the bottom step and collapsing on the sofa next to my cousin as I put them on.

"That is what you call smart?" He pointed to my denim shorts and black shirt.

"You got a problem?" I asked, picking strands of my dirty blonde fringe out of my hazel brown eyes.

"No, it's just... Oh well."

"What?" I asked, now intrigued

"You're meeting some pretty famous people today," he sighed

"You're pretty famous, right?"

"These guys are more famous than me," Ed got up off the sofa and out the door, me grabbing my bag and running after him to his car.


When we pulled up outside his house five boys were waiting outside.

"They look familiar," I smiled. Ed looked at me in disbelief

"You don't know who they are?" He asked

"Nope, not a clue," I shrugged

"Oh well, come on," he got out and slammed the door.

I collected my thoughts and grabbed my bag, closing the car door behind me.

"Hey guys, this is Jamie-Leigh Mackenzie, my little cousin," Ed pointed at me.

"Leigh, these are the guys. Harry, Louis, Niall, Zayn and Liam," he pointed to each boy in turn.

"Err... Hi, it's nice to meet you," I smiled at them, and punched Ed on the arm.

"What was that for?" He asked

"Calling me little," I replied and walked into the house.

"You've been keeping her a secret," I heard one of the boys whisper to Ed as they followed my lead.

"Jamie!" My aunt, Imogen, smiled as she pulled me into a hug.

I glared at Ed over her shoulder as he tried not to laugh.


We all sat down to eat, and the boys started firing questions at me.

"How old are you?" Harry asked

"19," I replied

"How are you related to Ed?" Liam was next.

"He's my second cousin."

"What kind of music do you listen to?" Zayn asked

"Not yours," I replied coldly.

"Ouch," Louis pulled a sad face.

"What do you like to eat?" Niall asked.

"Food," I smiled at him.

"All food?" He began to smile.

"Anything edible," I grinned back.

"Why don't you like us?" Louis was still laughing at Niall's reaction.

"You're immature," I said simply.

"But I'm older than you!" Louis spluttered.

"But do I act like a toddler?"

"Leigh is very.... Old for her age," Ed tried not to laugh. I kicked him under the table.

"Ow!" Harry squealed.

"Sorry, didn't mean to hit you," I apologised.

"Guys, just a warning. Don't mess with Leigh," Harry laughed.

I punched his arm. "My name is Jamie-Leigh, not Leigh."

"Another thing, don't called her Leigh," Harry moaned, rubbing his arm.


By the time I had finished attacking everyone we had finished lunch and moved to the garden. I lay on the grass looking at the pale blue sky. When I sat up everyone was looking at me.

"Excuse me?"

They all looked away quickly, apart from Niall.

"We were just admiring the beauty of this place."

"And by beauty we mean you," Harry chuckled.

"Listen to me, Curly," I pulled him up by a handful of hair. "If you don't shut up in two seconds I'm going to shave your precious curls off!"

"Aww, don't be mean to him, I think he likes you," Louis laughed as Harry blushed.

"I'm very sorry but I have to go home, stuff to do. Ed can I take your car?"

"Sure Leigh, I'll pick it up tomorrow," he smiled, still grinning from my fight with Harry. He knew I would have gone and shaved his head.

"Aww, can we get your number?" The boys asked.

They all took their phones out as I read my number out to them, each send me a text with their names on it.

"Bye!" I called as I walked away, leaving them staring after me.

"Wow Ed, you have one hot cousin!" I heard one of them remark as I got into the car and drove off.
