Paisley POV

 

 

I was awoken from my peaceful dreamless sleep when I hear my alarm clock go off.  I quickly jump out of bed and drag myself to the bathroom where take and shower, brush my teeth and wash my face.  I get dressed in a simple red and white stripped dress with a jean jacket paired with some red toms.  I honestly hate dresses but I forgot to do my laundry so yeah I'm stuck with this for today.  Since I'm already dressed up as it is I might as well do my hair and make up like it since I still have an hour left.  I curled my hair in loose waves and did neutral makeup.

 

I walk over to the full- length mirror and take a look.  For once I don't feel as insecure but I still feel down about myself.  I hear a honk outside signaling me that Paige is ready to go.  I scurry downstairs and run out the door.  As soon as I exited the house Paige started joking about what alien took over my body because I look like I actually care about school.  I playfully punched her shoulder and rolled my eyes while explaining that I forgot to wash my clothes.

 

 

We made small talk on the way to school.  I really want to tell her about Niall but I don't know if he is okay with me telling her.  Niall and I need to have a chat because I cant keep her away from him for several weeks.  Lost in my thoughts I didn't even notice we were at school.  I quickly exited the car and made my way to my first class shaking of the feeling that people were staring at me.  They were all just thinking about how ugly and fat I am.  I wont even bother telling you what the comments were because they are too rude to repeat.

 

The day slowly but finally came to an end and when it did I literally bolted out of the doors as fast as lightening.  Once I reached Paige's car I quickly hoped in and completely lost it.  I was crying my eyes out.  I look to my left and see Paige starting up the car, pity written all over her features.  She doesn't bother asking me what happened because she already knew.  The whole school was talking about me so I wouldn't be surprised if the janitors heard about people making fun of me.

 

Whenever I am upset I like to be left alone and Paige knows that so she just dropped me off at my house and made me promise not to do anything stupid or irrational.  I walked inside and upstairs not caring who saw me in my unstable state.  I plopped down on my bed and cried for what seemed like hours, the waterfall of tears finally subsided into small hiccups and sniffles.

 

A knock on the door sounded over my thoughts, I whispered a come in Niall quickly embraces me into a tight hug.  At first I tense up but then I relax and hug him back.  Moments later he asks me what's wrong so I decided to explain everything that's been happening at school.

 

"Paisley, I know I haven't known you that long but you are none of those things.  You are the most beautiful cousin in the world, you're sweet and caring not to mention the best dancer." he stated this with a wink which sent me into a fit of giggles.

 

"Thanks Niall, it means a lot." I responded giving him a small hug before continuing, "you remind me a lot of my best friend, she was the only one who was able to cheer me up before you.  That reminds me, she's a huge fan and I was wondering if you would like to meet her?"

 

"Is she hot?  Of course! I would meet anyone who makes you happy but yeah tell her to come over."  he responded.  I pulled my phone to text Paige to come over, she texted back saying she'll be here in 20 minutes.  I told Niall and he just nodded before speaking "I noticed your wearing stripes and all and when your not sad your really random, hyper, and carefree like Louis.  Your like a girl version of him!"  I saw a sly smirk appear on his face when he said this because he obviously saw my blush.  "I just found out your favorite of the band!" he screamed in my ear.  I then proceeded to scream back "Your Paige's favorite and thanks for making me go deaf!".  We both just busted out laughing, once that died down we sat in a comfortable silence waiting for her arrival.  I heard her car pull up and the doorbell ring.  I sent Niall to get the door and lets just say both of their reactions were priceless.
