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?


23. Management


Hey there my banana friends. Yes, you did read that correctly. You are now my banana friends :)

Susie's POV

After Niall and I realised we were alone, we did what any other couple would do.

We had sex.

HAHAHAHAAHAH!!!!!! I'M JOKING!!!!!!!!!!! 

Okay, sorry, that wasn't funny...

Anyway, Niall and I kissed. A lot. And we had a serious talk.


"Yes, babe?"

I hesitated.

"Come on, Susie, you can tell me anything!"

"Okay." I breathed. "I just, I'm really scared that when we go public, all the girls out there who like one direction are going to hate me."

Niall frowned. "Why would they do that?"

"Because-" I flapped my arms around a little, "Because they think I'm stealing you or something."

"Oh yeah." My boyfriend nodded gravely and I got even more worried. Even Niall thought they were going to hate me! "But you gotta know that whatever they say, I love you, okay?"

"How are we going to stop them?"

Niall smiled at me. "I'll figure something out, I promise. Look, we can wait a few more days until we tell the public, sort it all out. I'll make sure no harm comes to you or your family, Susie. You mean so much to me and I wouldn't let anything like that happen."

I smiled at his cuteness and nodded. "Thank you, Niall."

"Anything for you, princess."

I giggled. "You know, I'm so glad I made those brownies."

"Me too."

"Because I ended up meeting you." 

Niall smirked. "Well, I got to taste the most amazing brownies in the world!"

I slapped his arm playfully, "Hey!"

"Just messing with ya, darling."

I raised my eyebrows. "So the real reason?"

"I met the most beautiful girl who I love more than anything else, and I couldn't imagine my life without her."

Wow. "Even though I've only known you for six weeks?"

"Well, you know the saying, love at first sight?" The cheeky glint in Niall's eye made me blush.


"I think that happened to me."

Stroking Niall's arm with my thumb, I leant my head against his chest and felt his fingers run through my hair.

My boyfriend pushed me up and turned me around to face him again. "Aren't the girls supposed to be the ones saying the cheesy lines?" He asked and I laughed.

"You know what, I'd rather spend that time kissing you."

"Yeah, I think the feeling's mutual."

After a long time of passionate kissing and make-out sessions on the couch, Niall's tummy started to rumble and I rolled my eyes. He could never stop eating, could he?

I got up, much to my boyfriend's disappointment and made some sticky cheese and tomato spaghetti, which he loved, and we shared a big bowl, at one point ending up in a Lady and the Tramp position where Niall had one end of the spaghetti in his mouth and I had the other.

This made us laugh a lot, and by the time we finished eating and talking about all sorts of things, it was nearly ten o' clock. The girls still hadn't come back, and Niall couldn't be bothered to get off his lazy ass to go back home, so I said he could stay over.

"Susie, get your butt in here. I wanna go to sleep!" Niall called out and I emerged from the bathroom, trying to wear something a little nicer than my usual pyjamas but not too slutty. 

Niall lit up when he saw me and pulled me into the bed, muttering something about 'hands to himself'.

It was obvious he wanted to do more than kiss, but I told him no. I didn't want to feel pressurized into it, and to be honest, I wasn't ready to go straight into stuff like that when we'd only been dating for two days.

Woah. Two days? It feels a lot longer than that!

Anyway, Niall agreed and said that he was happy to wait for me, that we should take this relationship slowly so that we didn't rush and do anything stupid, get into any unnecessary arguments.

I fell asleep with his arms wrapped around me, feeling like I'd known Niall for so long, and not just a few weeks. We had such a connection, and I had never felt like this with Max before. To be honest, I hadn't thought about Max for ages now. 


In the morning, I was woken up by a scream. Opening my eyes, I turned round to see Niall still curled up next to me, looking incredibly adorable.

"OMG! They slept together!" The scream came again and I looked over at the door, finding Liv, Annabel and Zara staring at Niall and I in horror.

Niall, now very much awake, started laughing, and didn't even try to pull away from me.

"Oh, guys, nothing happened." Niall grinned and I smirked. Like they were going to believe that.

"Like we're going to believe that, leprechaun." Liv retorted and I gasped.

"Don't call me leprechaun!" Niall screamed back at her and Zara and Annabel laughed.

I smiled, "Yes, I'm the only one allowed to call him a leprechaun."

Niall kissed me again and I heard several groans coming from the door direction.

Liv sighed. "I can't take any more of this mushy stuff. You two are disgusting."

Slamming the door, the girls left us in peace and I sighed contentedly. "Can we stay here all day? It's nice."

Niall's breath tickled my ear. "As much as I'd love to lie in bed with you for the day, I need to sort some things out with management."

"What stuff?"

"Well, when we go away in two months to Japan, there is no way I'm leaving you behind."

My eyes widened. "Really?"

"Definitely. I'm gonna make them see that they can't push us around. You have to come with me!" Niall looked so serious that I burst out laughing.

"I'd love to!"

Niall smiled. "Then lets get out of bed and go see them!"

I frowned. "Wait, today? You want me to see them with you?"

He nodded and excitement took over his face. "How about we get them to allow all of you to come along! Zara, Annabel and Liv?"

"That would be fantastic!"

The girls came with us to One Direction's management, Modest! and Niall phoned the other guys up as well and told them what he was doing. They all agreed and said that they would meet us there as soon as they could.

On the way to the offices, I noticed Liv looking slightly sad. "What's the matter, honey?"

She looked up and I could see the tear tracks that must have been from yesterday. "What do you mean?"

Rolling my eyes, I took her hand. "Oh, come on, Liv, it's obvious you're upset about something, and I wanna help you out."

Liv looked out of the window at the place we had arrived to, and I saw Liam get out of the car. The girl next to me tensed as Danielle got out and took his hand and I pulled her out of our own car, walking over to Niall with her. "Don't worry, you can tell me later."

Liv nodded numbly and I took Niall's hand. We waited for the others to turn up, and then Harry led us in to the office block. "Right, let's do this."

A little while later, we were all sat down in front of One Direction's managers, Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee.

"So, how can we help you lads?" Richard started and Niall held up his hand.

"Go ahead, Niall."

"So, basically, the boys and I would really like to take some people with us to the tour in Japan." I gave Niall's hand an encouraging squeeze.

"And who would those people be?" Harry asked.

Zayn plucked up the courage to go next. "All of these people in here. There's seven of them."

Both men's eyebrows rose and I sighed. This didn't look too good.



Richard sighed. "And why do you want to take these people with you?"

Harry raised his hand. "Because five of them are our girlfriends and two are really good friends that can't be left behind."

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Liv frown and I was a little confused too. He wasn't dating Annabel or Zara, right? They would have told us.

Richard asked Harry and Niall who their girlfriends were and Niall pointed to me whilst Harry pointed to Liv, who looked murderous. He pulled her over and only I caught what he whispered in her ear. "I know you're not my girlfriend, just trust me on this, or they won't let us go. Okay?"

She nodded and I smiled. Thank you Liv!

The men in front of us sighed again and Harry Magee spoke. "Okay, you've worked with us for three years now, and you have been working very hard. I think we should give you a reward for that. We're going to give you the choice of either having these seven girls for one week in Japan or one week in the tour in the Spring."

I glanced over at the other girls, who were all mouthing 'Japan'.

Liam spoke up. "We'd like to take the Japan option please."

"And why is that?"

"Because the week in Japan is october half term break, so it fits in well with the girls universities. Thank you for letting us do this, and we promise not to mess anything up."

Richard smiled. "Good lads."

We all walked out of the room with grins on our faces. Several of the boys hi-fived and I hugged Niall like there was no tomorrow.

I was going on tour to Japan with my boyfriend in two months! How cool could life get?

"That was actually easier than I thought it would be." Liam let out a relieved sigh and the girls suggested that a shopping trip might be called for?

Everyone agreed, apart from the boys, who said they hated shopping, Danielle, who didn't give a reason, and Annabel, who was going to visit her family in Nettlebed.

We decided to go to the centre of London near Oxford street, where all the shops were. Perrie, Eleanor and Zara wanted to look around the Disney Store, so I dragged Liv off to Pret a Manger, which she immediately burst into tears at the sight of.

What was up with her?
