18. A curing smile

Charmaine's P.O.V.

" He did what now?" Darren said. Well more like shout if you ask me. " I know right! It still boggles my mind till this day!" I said.

" Do you have his number?"

" No" I said softly.

" What the hell Charmaine!" Darren shouted again.

" I know, I know," I said as I took a seat on the chair. I was going to say something else when the parlors door opened which dinged a little bell. I looked behind, it was the guys.

I gasped. Darren who was now looking at the back and grinned at me.

"Why are they here? Wait, did you do anything?" I asked curiously.

" I swear on David Bowie's heart that I didn't had anything to do with this" he said still grinning. I rolled my eyes as I looked at the boys. Can you believe it? All five of one direction is in the parlor right now.

" Hey Charmaine" they all said in unison.

" Hey" . Harry gave me a little wink that made me blush. He looked so good today only wearing a white shirt and some black skinny jeans. However, I never understood his tattoos though.

" Sooooo" Niall said snapping me out of my thoughts.

" Oh right, what are you guys doing here?" I asked. " Well, Paul called us and told us that we off for the day so we decided to pay you a little visit here since Niall told us to look for you here" Zayn replied.

" You remembered?" I said as I looked at Niall.

" I'll always remember" he replied. I smiled. You see this is what i'm talking about. Eventhough i'm not that close with Harry as I am to Niall, I still remember that day in the park where he understood me. Like he knew what it felt like. While Niall, just has this heart warming sensation when you're around him you know? it's like as if you can be yourself and not give a care in the world cause it's Niall.

" Hello" Darren said interrupting my thoughts again.

" Oh I'm sorry, guys this is Darren. My friend slash boss?" I said uncertainly". Darren laughed. " We go way back" Darren replied.

" How back?" Louis asked grinning. The guys facepalmed themselves, even me.

" Back when Charmaine here first moved to England" Darren replied.

" Well" Liam said. We all laughed. I looked at the clock, I had a class in 10 minutes!

" Um guys, I kinda have a class in li-".

My sentenced was cut off by Darren. " What Class?" he asked. I looked at him. " My class with Vern" I answered.

" Oh Vern. She called, she's not coming!"

" WHAT?"

" Yeah, since she's your last student why don't you spend the day with the boys?". I gave Darren the what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-you-? look. Darren smirked at me.

" You guys okay with that?"

" Yeah" they all said together.

" Alritey then, looks like you have a date with ONE DIRECTION!" Darren said in an announcer voice. We laughed.

" We'll wait for you in the car" Niall said as he went walk out of the parlor with the boys. I smiled at Niall before giving Darren my death glare.

" Vern didn't cancel her class, didn't she" I asked. Darren smiled. " Nope" he said proudly. I scoffed." What the hell man?" I said .

" Oh come on Charmaine, are you seriously going to turn them down for a class? I mean it's not everyday you get one direction walking in here" he said. I sighed. " Fine, maybe you're right" I answered. He grinned. I went to the back to grab my jacket and my phone.

As I was walking out, I smacked Darren at the back of his head. " OW" he said. " And that was for cancelling my class" I said while I stuck my tongue out at him.


I got in the backseat of the car with Zayn, Louis and Harry. Niall sat next to Liam driving. I sat next to Zayn. 

" So, where are we going exactly?" I asked.

" Honestly, we don't know. We were hoping that you'll give us an idea or two". I bit my lip.

" Are you thinking?" Niall asked.

" What?"

" Are you thinking? cause you're biting your lip". I gave Niall a confused look until I realized what I was doing. Well isn't he observant? .

" Yeah, how did you know?" I asked. He shrugged. " Instincts I guess" he answered.

" Okay?" I said. " Anyways, where to Charmaine?" Louis asked.

" Well, we can always go to my place". The boys looked at each other and grinned.

" Yes" the said altogether. I laughed while Liam started to drive.


We arrived at my place a few minutes later since it was just around the block. I took out my keys from my pocket as I started unlocking the door. When it was opened, we all went in.

" Nice Place" Harry as he took my guitar off me so I could close the door. I smiled.

" Thanks." I replied . I threw the keys into a the " key bowl" and joined the boys.

" So do you live here alone?" Louis asked.

" Nah, I live with Sandra." I replied. The guys gave each other a confusing look.

" Whose Sandra?" Liam asked followed by the rest. I  swear my eyeballs almost popped out. I totally forgot about Sandra! I'm so dead. I was about to shove the boys out of the house when Sandra came walking down.

" Charmaine, Who are these boys?" she said in panic/ surprised/angry tone. I facepalmed myself. " Sandra I can explain" I said.

" Go on" she said . I looked at the guys, they all gave me reassuring smiles.

" Sandra, this one direction. That's Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis and Harry" I said gesturing at each and every one of them. " And one direction this is Sandra" I said . They all gave little waves while saying " hi. " And they're my friends". Sandra's expression changed when I said friends. She frankly knew why. She pulled me into the kitchen.

" Did you just say friends?" she said in a loud whisper. The boys were checking out the place.

" Yeah" I replied. Sandra tensed up. Well here we go again, prepare for the nag fest. I closed my eyes waiting for the worse when Sandra squealed with glee. Did not see that coming. The next thing I know, she started hugging me.

" You made more friends!" she said. " What's that supposed to mean?" I asked baffled. " Well at first it was just Darren then Niall then Harry and now you have three more friends"

" Wow Sandra" I said rolling my eyes.

" But you gotta get more girlfriends though, you're lacking them" she answered.

" Yeah girlfriends, you know I don't mind having friends who are the opposite sex" I answered sarcastically.

" Believe me Charmaine, You will need a girlfriend once in awhile."

" That's why I have you!" I said cheerfully. Sandra shook her head as we went out.

" By the way Charmaine, you're not quite done introducing them. I mean who's who?" she asked. I smiled. I decided to start with Zayn .

" Sandra this is Zayn, Liam, Louis Niall and Harry". I said Harry's name a little louder. Sandra's expression changed.

" So you're Harry". she said walking towards him. " Aren't you just handsome" she said. Harry was calm. " And may I say that you just look stunning" Harry replied as he took and kissed her hand. Me and Niall exchanged looks.

" Age Limit" I fake coughed. The guys laughed. Sandra grinned.

" I'll be seeing you more often" she said and winked at Harry as she walked off to her room. Harry turned back to check her out.

" Seriously dude?" I said taking him by the hand and pulled him into my room. Yes my room, and don't get the wrong idea, the rest of the guys were there too. Not just curly.


Niall's P.O.V.

" Nice room" I said, which it was. I mean it looked almost like a tumblr room. There was a big poster of The Beatles on her wall and also a poster of Panic at the disco. Papers were lying on her floor and stacks of notebooks were on her dresser, no make up. Just note books. But what really caught my eye was the pictures on her wall. There was a quote above the pictures which read " People change memories don't". Pictures of her and people which I assumed were her friends.

There was a picture of her at a pool party, a picture of her and another girl eating ice cream. I scanned the whole wall until I found what I was looking for, a picture of " Tom." She was sitting on Tom's lap as Tom's arms were wrapped around her waist. They both seemed so happy especially Charmaine.

I looked at my right and saw Harry looking at the photos too. Does he even really like her? Sometimes I wonder.

" You sure had some good memories" Zayn said. She frowned a little.

" Um yeah, you could say that" she replied glancing at the photos before she went back cleaning her dresser. I didn't want to ask about Tom, so I just started at the picture long hard.

" That's Tom" Charmaine said as she walked slowly behind me. Shit! she caught me. I became oblivious.

" Tom?" I asked once more in a questioning tone. The rest of the boys were now looking at out direction. " Yeah," she replied. " We used to date. This picture was actually taken on our prom night." she said smiling as she touched the picture.

" What happened ?" Harry asked coming closer taking her hand. I stepped back a little bit so I wouldn't have to be a roadblock between them.

" We broke up eventually" she said a bit softer. The rest of the boys could sense that she didn't want to talk about and gave her  reassuring smiles.

" You have us now" Harry said before pulling her into a hug. She hugged back smiling. One thing about Charmaine, her smile could cure anything even if it's the most darkest moment. I looked around to find that the boys were smiling too.
