Summer Love

Three best friends, Lauren, Maria and Grace, had been planning the trip to celebrate the end of their 'A' levels since they were twelve. Now, their exams are over and they're getting ready to tour the UK and Northern Ireland. As is just their luck, disaster strikes on day two. What happens when the girls get too involved with One Direction to leave again without heartbreak?


14. Lou


I was gathering my things together as three girls, along with Li, Niall and Zayn walked through the door, laughing and talking. Lou and Harry were still at their interview, and wouldn’t be back for at least two and a half hours. Which meant I had plenty of time to make these girls stunning. It would be a nice change to do hair and makeup on these girls, usually I just do the boys, the ‘Emos’ and myself. I snapped back into reality to see them all stood in front of me, laughing at something around the corner. I could hear shouting and laughing from the boys and Lux, and peered round to see what was going on. Zayn was teaching Lux how to take photos of herself on his phone whilst Liam went into ‘Daddy-Direction’ mode, worrying that she might hurt herself or drop it on her feet. Niall had his head stuck in the fridge, trying to find something to eat. I suddenly heard a cry of "leftover Nando's!" and a crash as ready meals and vegetables came cascading out of the fridge and onto the floor, packets splitting to create a large pile of food on the tiles of the kitchen. It was a good job I didn't live here. Niall emerged from the depths of the fridge covered in the sauce I was planning to use with my dinner that night. Emphasis on the past tense. Immediately the girl with the bleach blonde hair went over and put her arm around his shoulder, leading him to the bathroom to clean up and getting sauce all over her cheek in the process. After they’d gone I raised my eyebrows at the mess. The girl with the long hair had gone to try and clean the floor up after Niall’s little outburst and Liam and Zayn were still arguing. The girl with the dark hair just looked at me with an inquisitive expression on her face and addressed me

“So, you’re Lou, right?”

“Yep, hair and makeup artist to these dipshits” I gestured to Liam and Zayn, who both looked up with the same look on their pretty little faces. Their expression was that of (fake) shock, (fake)  hurt, amusement and, well, idiocy.

“I see what you mean” the girl replied, turning her attention back to me, “I’m Maria”

“Oi! That is hurtful!” Liam gaped at her and gestured dramatically before pointing his index finger at Maria, “You’re in for it!”

“Uh- no she’s not Li. I need to do her hair and makeup now and I need you lot to piss off. So in other words, because you love me, can you take Lux and Nialler to the park?”

“The park?” Niall appeared in the doorway, his eyes wide with excitement, “We’re going to the park? Let’s go! I want to go on the seesaw with Lux!”

“Niall, you know you’ll out-weigh Lu-“

“Don’t, Lauren. We’ve had this conversation so many times. It just ends in tears” Zayn interrupted before she could do any damage to Niall’s ego. By now he and Lux were stood by the door with their shoes on, ready to go, calling for Zayn and Liam to hurry up.

“We’ll leave you all to get acquainted then” Liam said, kissing Maria on the cheek and joining the others. I raised my eyes as she blushed and the others started laughing. Once they had calmed down I clapped my hands and inhaled

“So! Are you lovelies ready? I’m Lou, by the way”, I turned to Lauren and the other girl, smiling, “You’re Lauren right?” she nodded, “I didn’t get your name, though” I said to the girl with the long hair

“Grace. Nice to meet you” she smiled cheekily and I gestured to the chairs and table where all of my stuff was sprawled out messily,

“I’ve been told the story’s a long one, so I guess now’s a great time to let me know?” they laughed and we sat down after getting drinks.
