It All Started With A Brownie

Actually, it starts with two.
Susie gets up one morning and makes a load of brownies. 250, in fact. She and her friends don't know what to do with them so they decide to sell them - outside their apartment. A guy comes along, hood up, blue eyes and soft blonde hair. He keeps his face hidden, but when Susie sees him properly, it's Niall Horan, her celebrity crush. Can Susie keep her secret hidden from her friends, or will the truth come out?


25. Going Public


Did you notice I changed the cover? I thought it suited the story better than the last one and it looks more like a book cover!

Susie's POV

To be honest, it was such a relief to have Liv back to normal. I absolutely hate it when she goes all moody and sad. I knew when she spilled everything to me in Pret that Liam would have a lot of explaining to do, as when Liv thinks that someone doesn't care about her, she really takes it to heart and makes a big deal of it.

I was quite annoyed with Danielle for being so nasty as well. Usually Dani and Liv were close, and the sudden change in the former made me wonder if she was jealous. The way Liv described it certainly sounded like she was, and Liv hasn't gone out with her since.

It's been a week since all that drama, and I've been counting down the days till we all go to Japan. I seriously can't wait, as I know that holidays with friends are the best type of holidays.

I've seen Niall every day so far, most of the time we've gone out alone, other times with friends, a couple of times I visited his studios where the boys record and practice.

Our relationship is great, and I can't really believe how far we've come in only two weeks. Apparently Niall likes our apartment better than his own, because it's more cosy, so he usually stays the night in my bedroom, which the girls still find hilarious, even though nothing really goes on.

Flicking through an old Hello magazine strewn across the kitchen table, I spotted an article on One Direction. I stopped and skim-read the first page, mostly about their successes and the spring tour. When I turned the page, I glanced over the double-page spread and froze. On the third page, a huge picture of me was surrounded by little pictures of Niall and I spotted together.

I analysed the article.

"Niall Horan, member of the popular boy band, One Direction, has been spotted a number of times with a nineteen year old girl called Susie.

"Susie Liddell, formerly from Bix, has been known to have been seeing the Irish boy for quite a while now. The young couple have been seen together on numerous occasions, including places like coffee shops in London, and the Reading Vue Cinema.

"We don't know what to make of this news, as Niall and Susie have not gone public yet, but we sure hope that Susie makes a formal appearance soon."

I sucked in a long breath and face-palmed myself. Niall and I hadn't told the world we were dating, as every time my boyfriend asked if I was ready, my fears had taken over and I hadn't allowed Niall to say anything.

I was too scared.

Too scared that the girls who liked Niall would hate me. Too scared that they would harass me or my family. Too scared that it would break me apart.

An incoming call from Niall made me jump and I quickly picked up the phone.

"Hey!" I called.

"Hey, babe!"

I smiled. "How are you?"

"Good thanks, we've finished recording now and it was great! Just wondering if you wanted to meet up? I miss you." Niall whined.

"I saw you yesterday!" I exclaimed, silently freaking out that he was thinking of me.

Niall chuckled down the phone. "I know, but I miss you anyways."

"I'd love to meet up, but I'm kinda having a lazy day. It's only me in the apartment, do you wanna come over? I miss you too."

"Sure, I'll be there in twenty minutes."

I hung up and placed the phone down on the bed, jumping up and rushing over to the kitchen.

Twenty minutes to get this place clean.

I emptied and loaded the dishwasher, hoovered the kitchen and lounge, picked up clothes and bits of paper off of my bedroom floor, made my bed and plumped the pillows on the sofa by the time there was a ring on the doorbell.

I hurried over to the door and paused. With no makeup, my hair done in a messy bun, sweatpants, converse and a strappy top, I really looked a mess.

Was there time to go change? No, Niall had been standing out there for at least a minute while I had been dithering.

Opening the door, I leapt into my boyfriend's outstretched arms and squealed. "Niall!"

"Hey, baby girl!"

I grinned and led him into the lounge, kissing him all the way there and almost falling backwards over the sofa in the process.

"Careful, don't wanna injure yourself. You look gorgeous today by the way."

I blushed. "You don't look too bad yourself either." Even with cream chinos, black hi-tops and a turquoise top that read: Free Hugs, he still looked amazing.

I gave him another big hug and he laughed. "I love wearing this top, it gives people the perfect excuse to hug me."

Smiling, we made our way over to the sofa after I made Niall hot chocolate with marshmallows and we slumped down. 

"Have you just been lazing around all day?" Niall asked and I nodded sheepishly.

"Just waiting for you to finish in the studio. It gets lonely here without you."

My boyfriend stared at me with a smile on his face for a moment. "I love you."


Niall's confused expression made me burst out laughing.

"Rawr. It means I love you in dinosaur."

He grinned and pulled me closer. I leant my head in his chest, our fingers entwined, lying back in his arms whilst he stroked my hair.

I closed my eyes for a second. I would never get tired of hearing Niall say that he loved me. It was the most perfect feeling ever, to be loved. And there was nobody I'd rather share my love with than him.

Turning back to my boyfriend, I studied him for a minute. "Niall, when do you think we should go public?"

He hesitated. "Well, it's up to you princess, but I think the best time would be this week, as people have now seen us together and are asking questions. We don't want them to make up untrue rumours."

I agreed. "Yeah, that's what I was thinking too." Picking up the magazine, I showed it to Niall and he read it slowly.

After he finished, I put the magazine back. "So, what are your thoughts now?"

"I think we should definitely do it in the next three days."

I thought for a moment. Could I let myself do this? Put myself through all this torture?

"Niall, can we tell everyone today?" I whispered.

His eyes widened. "Are you sure, baby?"

I nodded confidently. "I'm kinda just putting off the date for as long as I can, but I think I'm ready to spread the news. Can we post something on twitter?"

Niall squeezed my hand. "As long as you're okay about this."

"I'm definitely okay. Let's do it now before I change my mind."

My boyfriend laughed and kissed my nose.

I stared at him. "Did you just kiss my nose?"


After that, we couldn't stop laughing, but then I remembered our mission.

"C'mon Niall. We need to say something."

He nodded. "Okay." Pulling out his phone, he swiped the screen and clicked on the Twitter app.

I glanced over his shoulder and gasped at the enormous amount of people Niall had following him. "Jesus, Niall! The most amount of followers I have is like one hundred!"

He grinned and showed me a comment from a random girl named LizziRox.

Hey Niall, I was wondering...are you and Susie Liddell together? I hope so, cause you are so cute and I totally ship you! Say hi to Susie and the boys for me if you read this :D

My heart ached for this girl. Her profile picture looked as if she was only about thirteen and her comment was adorable!

"Oh Niall, please please please can we reply to her?"

He looked up at me and kissed my nose again. "Sure! I love replying to fans and reading their comments, it seems to make them so happy, and making fans happy makes me happy too."

Niall replied to the girl, saying simply: Yes, we are together. Thanks for your lovely tweet, Susie says hi!

I clapped my hands excitedly as Niall sent his tweet.

He then started to follow the girl and I squealed. My boyfriend was too cute! This girl must feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now. I mean, if I hadn't met Niall and then he followed me on twitter and tweeted me, I would be utterly shocked and very overwhelmed.

We both watched as Lizzie's followers shot up by another three hundred and I kissed Niall passionately. 

"I love you princess." He whispered, his breath tickling my ear and I smiled.

"I love you too."

Niall picked up his phone again. "We can't really leave it like that with the fans. I'll post a tweet to all my followers so that they know for sure."

I nodded and Niall quickly snapped a picture of me in his arms. "What? Niall, don't take a picture, I hate pictures being taken of me!"

My boyfriend went to his gallery and showed me the pic, which was actually very cute. I sighed. "Fine, you can post it."

He chuckled and tweeted the pic.

As u may hv heard, Susie and I r now dating, and this is my official statement. We r really happy together, I <3 her more than anything in the world. Thx for being so supportive!

Niall looked up at me. I bit my lip, then smiled and nodded. "Go ahead, it's short and sweet but to the point."

"Do you want me to put your twitter name on there?"

I shrugged. "I'm sure they'll find it, don't worry."

He smiled. "Did you know I'm following you?"

My eyes widened. "Really? Oh Niall, that's so cute!"

He laughed and I joined him, pulling my phone out of my pocket and clicking on my twitter. I hadn't been on here for ages, and my followers had gone up by thousands. There were loads of tweets that I needed to read, but for now I was too busy hanging out with my gorgeous boyfriend. 

I'd look at them later.

Wait a second...

@NiallOfficial: @SusieLidds23 I love you baby xxx

If anyone wants to make me a trailer, please please do make one!! I've been trying to do one of ages but it's really bad and I would hate to have it as the trailer, so please make one for me!!

IMPORTANT- Please remember to comment- it takes me forever to think of the chapter and write it for you guys (about 2/3 days per chapter), but it only takes a second for you to leave a comment! I love writing this fanfic, but it would be great if I got more than one person commenting :) Hope that's not too much to ask, it doesn't matter if you know me or not, just please don't be afraid to leave a comment!!!

Something for you to comment about: Do you ship Niall and Susie? Do you like the new cover? Do you prefer Niall and Susie's cute scenes or Liv's drama scenes? Which character do you like the most in the book? Which characters would you like to see more of? Any constructive critisism or mistakes you found are always good! I love to improve my story and any comments I receive really help and inspire me to write.

Sorry for having to ask!
