Raven Gray. Broken. Unnoticed. Wistful. One Direction were her idols. She looked up to them. She loved them. She dreamed of meeting them. What happens when she does? Will something happen that will just tip her over the edge?


3. What to Wear

I quickly ripped open the One Direction envelope and scanned it. I squealed in delight. I had won! I was going on a lunch trip with the boys from One Direction! I had never been so happy in my entire life. I was finally going to meet my idols! I ran into my bedroom, skidding around the corners in my socks, and flung open my wardrobe. Oh no. I had nothing to wear. I wailed to myself and flopped down on my bed, slinging and arm over my eyes. I guess I would just have to shopping. It was a little late to do so now so I got ready and tried to fall asleep.




The next morning was Saturday so I slept in until 9:30am. Remembering what had happened the previous day, I was suddenly wide awake and I jumped up to get ready to go shopping. After showering I put my hair up in a messy but not too messy bun, exposing my bird tattoo on my neck. Throwing on some skinny jeans and a dark red knitted sweater, I slipped my white vans on again and grabbed my purse before heading out the door. I slid into my car and flipped down the little mirror. I applied some mascara and lip gloss before backing out into the street. I decided to pick up some Starbucks coffee and a muffin on my way.

 I parked outside and practically skipped inside, giddy with excitement for the upcoming events. I ordered and as I was waiting I thought about the lunch. I was next weekend so I had plenty of time to prep myself to meet my idols. “Nice tat,” a deep voice behind me jolted me from my thoughts. I whipped my head around to see who it was, my hand flying to the back of my neck on impulse. It was a guy from school, Brandon. “Oh, thanks, I think.” I laughed nervously. “I didn’t know you had one. When did you get it?” he asked. “I’ve had it for about a year now.” I replied, getting a little more confident. “Order for Raven Gray?” a voice called out. My coffee and muffin was ready. “I’ll see you around I guess.” said Brandon before strolling away. I watched him for a moment, noticing how the sun caught in his light brown hair, making it look almost blonde. I snapped myself out of my reverie with a shake of my head and grabbed my stuff from the girl waiting who was getting impatient. I smiled at her but she only scowled back before strutting off.




I had been wandering around the shops for two hours now and had nearly bought everything. The outfit consisted of an sheer, orchid purple high-low dress with a thin brown belt, cream heels with an ankle strap and an assortment of bangles and a silver bird necklace. I plopped myself down on a bench outside a jewelry store, tired and ready to go home. I did just that.




After hanging up my dress and putting away the rest of things I bought, I sat on my bed and stared at the letter telling me the details of the lunch date with the boys. I was to be picked up in a limousine with One Direction and we were going to drive to some fancy restaurant. Suddenly, the reality of it all hit me like a ton of bricks. I realized that I was going to lunch with five attractive, good-looking, famous boys. What if they didn't like me? What if they thought I was ugly or boring? Even worse, what if they guessed my past? What if they guessed I was depressed and suicidal? Sinking back into the worries and fears of depression I passed out on my bed.
