The Sketchbook

Olivia is an art student and her local college, she lives with her best friend Caitlin in an apartment in a small city in England. One day she's sitting in the park near her local shopping mall and spots a mysterious good looking boy sitting there, she's never seen him around before. And before she realises, she's drawing him, trying not to be obvious. She quickly walks off when he realises what she's doing, she just cant get him out of her mind.

Olivia's P.O.V

I walked out of the now empty school and walked around the corner alone to my bus stop, since Laura and Caitlin had ditched me. I was sitting at the bus stop, thinking about what I was going to do for my project, when I saw the bus apporach. I stepped on, showed him my pass and took a seat near the back. The bus was about to leave when a boy with a blonde quiff ran up to the bus shouting "Wait, Wait!" Recognition washed over my face as I realised he was Zayn's friend from the park last month. I quickly put my head down and used my hair to shield my face from him.

Niall's P.O.V

I saw the bus was about to leave the stop. My mum had texted me saying that dinner was nearly ready. I was not going to miss this bus, so I started running and yelling for it to wait. The driver looked back and saw me running, so re-opened the doors and signalled for me to hurry up. I stepped onto the bus panting, as I was paying for my ticket I scanned the bus for an empty seat and spotted a row of free seats at the back. As i'm walking to the back, I spot the girl Zayn was staring at from the park, I sit behind her and try to think up of something to say to start a conversation with her. 

I couldn't think of anything so instead I decide to text Zayn.

To: Zayn 

Hey mate ! that girl from the park is on my bus she must live close t me ! want me t hook u up?;)

From: Niall

A minute later, my phone vibrated, I unlocked it and read his reply

To: Niall

From: Zayn

Olivia's P.O.V 

"Hey, you're the girl from the park last month... Olivia right?"

I hear a thick Irish accent ask in my ear. It made me jump a bit.

"God, don't ever scare me like that again, and yeah...How do you know my name?" I turned around to face him, asking him curiously.

"Zayn told me" he replies. "I hear you're taking the same course as him at college?" he asks.

"Yeah, what course are you taking?" I wonder.

"Sports Science" he replies with a smile.

"Ha, typical boy" I say, rolling my eyes. He laughs.

Our conversation carried on from there, we just talked about life really. I found out Niall works at the local pub round the corner from where he lives, the owner sometimes lets him perform there, he sings and plays the guitar  to the customers. He also has an older brother Greg and he lives with his mum Maura. His last name is Horan and he's only lived here for a month.

I see my stop in the distance. I stand up and press the button to signal for the bus to stop.

"Bye Niall, see you soon" I smile and give him a small wave.

"Bye Olivia!" he says.

Zayn's P.O.V

I was sprawled across my bed, just doodling some random things in my sketchbook when I hear my phone vibrate on my bedside table. I reach over and grab it, and smile when i see it's a text from Olivia.

To: Zayn

Your friend Niall is..interesting.. ;) xx

From: Olivia

Note to self: punch Niall really hard in the arm when i next see him.

To: Olivia

Oh god what did he say? he didnt say anything embarassing about me did he? if he did I swear i'm gonna kill him! xx

From: Zayn

 

To: Zayn

Olivia's P.O.V

I'm suprised how confident I was being being with Zayn, I mean I only met him properly earlier today. Something just clicked I guess. I haven't really been very confident because of the last boyfriend I had. We dated for about a year and a half and everything was going smoothly until he one day out of the blue broke up with me over text. I was heart broken. I never let anyone in after that, i kept to myself and got on with my life. To make things worse though, he started telling everyone I was a virgin (I am but what's wrong with that? at least I'm not like slut that sleeps with everything that moves like Jasmine Parker; she was the one that spoke to Zayn in class today. She went out with my ex Aaron after we broke up, i'm not sure if they're still together.) and that i'm frigid, everyone made fun of me.

But I've slowly been building up my confidence with the help from Caitlin and Laura. I think Zayn would also be a help if I got to know him better. I really hope tomorrow night goes well. To be honest, I have a little bit of crush on him already.
