You Found Me (Niall Horan fanfic)

I was lost. Alone. Tired of trying. That's when he found me. One Direction fanfic


30. graduation

Skylar's POV

I woke up excited.  I was about to be done with the hell of place called high school.  Yesterday was our last day.  Today is graduation.  And tomorrow is prom.  

I grabbed my phone and checked a few things.  

 I got out of bed and hopped in the shower.  I took a quick one since I had already showered last night because of the lake. But i made sure to shave. Just the thought of yesterday made me smile.  It was fun.  

I hopped into the shower.  Being careful of my still hurt leg.  Yesterday when Grace pushed me into the water I had been wearing it.  But luckily it wasn't a plain cast, it was a boot yhingy.  You're not supposed to get it wet but it's not horrible if you do.  

After my shower, i dried off and put some sweats and a tank top on.  

I went outside where I had left my boot to dry.  I checked.  It was dry now.  I rolled up my pant leg and put it on.  It was nice and warm from the sun rays hitting it.  

I went back inside and made some toast.  I was starving. I added peanut butter and jelly.  Yummy.  

"Hey Sky," My dad said.  He wasn't drunk.

"Hi," I smiled.  I could definitely get used to this.  

"We still on for later?"

"Of course," I replied.

He also made some toast and sat next to me.  

This was so different.  It felt weird.  But it was a good weird.  I don't think we have ever sat this close in forever.  

The doorbell rang. 

"I'll get it." I walked towards the door.  It was Caleb. "Um Caleb.."

He walked past me into my house.

"Apparently the press thinks we have a little something something," he laughed.

"Yeah, they're probably taking pics of you now.  Caleb you should leave."

"No.   Can't you see our chemistry."

"No.  I really can't.  Know why? Cause it doesn't exist," I said and tried to push him towards the door.

"SO you're touching me eh?" He grabbed my butt and smirked.  I removed it.

"Caleb leave now!" I yelled.  My dad came in.  

"Hey! Mr. Jones" 

"You need to leave," he said. Caleb looked shocked.

"Where's your beer huh?"

"Now!" My dad shouted.  He walked very close to Caleb.  

"Fine," he said and left. I closed and locked the door behind him. 

An awkward silence grew between me and my dad.  

"Well, I should go get ready," I said awkwardly and walked the stairs.


Once up there I texted Niall.  I told him what happened.  Just a heads up.  He was a little mad but excepted it.  

I started to paint my nails.  I did a blue that matched my dress perfectly.  I also did my toe nails.  They looked pretty good if you asked me.  My nails were long but not gross long.  They were perfect.  

I next applied my make up.  I took longer on it than usual.  Since there were going to be pictures taken.  I did a liquid foundation and added cream blush over.  I next added a medium eye shadow. Up next was eyeliner.  I chose black.  I added no wing.  Kept it basic.  Just enough to make my eyes pop.  Last for the eyes were mascara.  I added some blush.  I was saving my lips for after a snack. 

I went down stairs and had half a sandwich.  Turkey.  Lettuce.  Swiss. Mayo.  My favorite.  

once i finished eating i headed back up the mountain of stairs and brushed my teeth.  Brushing hard and long.  I flossed.  Then applied some lips gloss.  The one thing I liked about myself was lip color.  It was light yet dark.  It was nice.  

I finally changed into the pretty dress.  It fell at the perfect length.  I still can't believe it was my mom's.  It looked so modern.  Not to mention it fit perfectly.,d.cGE&psig=AFQjCNF_NqYiQU6h8CTA6L5Qfuc6OZkPHw&ust=1372616929136132 (the dress) 

I went into the bathroom and started to curl my long, brown hair.  It was thin so it didn't take as long but it was really long.   I added a little bit of hairspray to make sure it would stay.,r:1,s:200,i:7&iact=rc&page=6&tbnh=190&tbnw=131&ndsp=38&tx=45&ty=101 her hair.  


Once I was satisfied I went to my room and picked out shoes.  I picked some black flats.  Since i couldn't really walk in heels.  

"Send me a pic babe!" The text was from Niall.  I set my phone on timer and took a picture.

"You look beautiful as always."

"Thank you." I smiled.  

I put my phone in my black purse and headed down stairs were my dad was waiting.  He was by the end of the stairs with a camera.

"Dad?" I asked. He turned around and stared at me.

"Is that your mother's d-dress?" He stuttered.  I nodded my head and smiled.

"You look just like her," he said.  I nodded my head and we headed outside towards his car.  It smelled kinda bad so I made sure I had perfume in my bag.  

In a few minutes we arrived.  There were a lot of cars in the lot.  Even though we were early.  I said bye to my dad and went to where all the other grads were.  I began to put my robe on.  I then put my special hat thingy on.  

I found Grace.  She looked amazing as usual.  She had her slightly wavey.  She had a section of her hair pinned back.  It was gorgeous.

"Oohh i love your hair," she said,  touching the curls.


"I can't believe we are graduating!" She squealed.  I laughed and and freaked out with her. 


Before we knew it, it was time to line up and start the service. It was held outside.  It was a very nice day.  The sun was shining.  A few white fluffy clouds.  There was a slight warm breeze.  

The service started.  The principal talked for awhile.  Then Amanda Janes went up.  She gave a speech about what this school year was like and how we will keep in touch.  She talked about our future.  And other stuff like how she was going to miss us all.  

She was a sweet girl.  Like really sweet.  She was a theater person.  So good at acting.  

The last part was getting our diplomas.  The principle called us up one by one in alphabetical order by our last names.  SO with the last names of Jones I was in the middle.  

"Skylar Jones," He called.  I slowly stood up and began to limp up the stage to where he was standing.  He shook my hand and handed me my diploma.  Grace was cheering very loudly.  I did the same for her. 

At the end of the service all the grads through their hats up and cheered.  Summer was starting.  We were either going to start college or go straight to real world jobs.  It was exciting.  I can't believe I've had some of these people in my class since kindergarten.


There were many pictures taken.  My cheeks hurt so bad.  There also lots of hugs and tears.  Luckily not for me.  Grace was going to a community college.  And I? Well i don't know but I'm staying local.  

My dad walked over to us.

"Um Grace this is my dad.  Dad this is Grace," I said awkwardly.  She gave me the look that said 'i thought he scared you  and was drunk most times' 

"I'll tell you later," I mouthed she nodded her head and shook my dad's hand.   

Grace and I went into the girl's locker room and took off our robes.  She was wearing a pink strapless dress that came about five inches above her knees.  

"Woah, where did you get that dress?" She asked.

"It was my mom's surprisingly," I admitted.

"No way?!" 

"Way!" I answered.  

"So are you coming to the party?" 

"Yeah," i answered, "But first I'm going out to eat with my dad."

"SO what's up with that? I thought he was drunkie?" She asked.

I shrugged.  "I came home yesterday and he wasn't.  He was normal.  And i asked if he could not drink today.  Just for me and he said yeah.  I think he may be topping."

"That's great!"

"I know!" I hugged her tight. 

We said our goodbyes as I went off to find my dad.

"Skylar, over here."  I turned around and saw him standing there.  I gave him a hug and we walked towards the car.
