Once Upon a New York Night

Do you ever feel like you mean nothing? Like you don’t feel wanted by anyone? Like the world would be better off without you? I’m Carry and I am 17 years old and well, that’s how I have felt ever since my mom died and my dad started beating me every day. I was on the verge of ending it all. Leaving this world for good. But everything changed when I ran away to New York with my 2 best friends. I would have never thought I would feel like I was special to someone, like someone would truly like me for me. I never knew I would find love in the heart of the big apple.



Carry’s P.O.V.

I was in the middle of an amazing dream of meeting One direction when I felt something cold hit my body jolting me awake.

“What the-“ I screamed as I looked at my soaking clothes and make shift bed. I had never been so confused in my life until I heard it. That distinctive giggling that could only belong to two people coming from down the hall.

“Ok. Three can play at this game.” I said with a sly smirk as I quietly made my way to the bathroom adjacent to Mone’s room. I looked around and I soon found what I was looking for, a bucket jus the right size to drench my demonic best friends.

I filled the bucket almost all the way up with freezing water before making my way to Mones door and see if the coast was clear. Once I made sure everything was friend-free I started to walk slowly through the house following the sound of Janaes big mouth all the way to the kitchen. I peeked my head through the door and saw they had their backs turned and were watching a video of them dumping the water on my head over and over again. This was my chance I slowly made my way and them BOOM! I dumped the bucket all over them causing them to scream like little girls as I nearly peed myself laughing.

“Oh my god my hair!” Mone screamed shooting me daggers with her eyes as I laughed harder.

“Why did you do that!?!” Janae scramed over Mone’s fake sobbing.

I just looked at my friends soaked in freezing water one angry and one fake crying and I slowly calm down before I screamed, “PAYBACK SUCKS!” and ran out of the kitchen as fast as I could with Mone and Janae right behind me. I ran up the stps and just reached Mone’s door when they both tackled me from behind causing me to lose my balance and we all fell into a huge laughing heap in the middle of the hallway.

“Jesus Janae your elbow is digging into my side!” I said between laughter.

“Hey don’t be talking your hip is crushing my thigh.” Janae replied and we broke out into an argument of who’s elbow was jabbing who’s thigh as we tried to control our laughter.

“Oh my god guys GET UP YOUR CRUSHING ME! I was under everyone else and it was really starting to get hard to breath. “Please I can’t breathe!”

“Oh Crap! Sorry Carry!” Mone stood up pulling Janae with her before helping me up from the hard ground.

“Well… That was interesting.” Janae let out a laugh as she started to pull her still soaking wet curly hair into a messy bun as we all made our way back into Mone’s room.

“What time is it anyway?” I hadn’t even checked the time when I got up but it looked to be almost 11 or maybe later.

“It’s ummm 11:26 according to my phone.” Janae said as she removed her phone from the charger.

“Oh geez guys we gotta pack and order the plane tickets still! I will get my computer and look up a flight for tonight, Janae you call your Uncle and arrange anything that needs to be arranged concerning the apartment, and Carry you can get the suitcases from my closet and pick out some clothes for you and as soon as we get to New York we will take you shopping. Ok?”

“Ok” me and Jane replied in unison as we all separated to start our tasks. Leave it to Mone to get us on track again. This is why she is the responsible one of the bunch she always knows what to do when to do it. If we didn’t have her I swear we would never get anything done.

I walked to her hallway closet and looked for the suitcases Mone was talking about. I found three matching purple suitcases one small, medium, and large. I pulled them out and made my way back to Mone’s room to start packing. I looked through her draws and ended up with at least 20 adorable outfits that I could have only dreamed of having when I lived with my dad. As I put the last pieces of clothing into the suitcase Janae came running into Mone’s room screaming with a huge smile on her fac.

“whoa whoa whoa what’s wrong?”, Mone said looking up from her computer screen confused.

“HE SAID YES!!! And he said he could hook us up at this restaurant around the corner!” Janae said looking at me and Mone with a stupid grin on her face.

“Yay! This is amazing!” I screamed as we all group hugged in the middle of Mone’s room.

“You know what this call’s for?” Mone asked in a very serious maner.

“What?” me and Janae asked in unison.

“ONE DIRECTION DANCE PARTY!” Mone screamed as she plugged her phone into her IHome turned the volume all the way up and hit play as She’s Not Afraid filled the speakers. When the first verse started we began singing at the top of our lungs and dancing like idiots around the room.

She sneaks out in the middle of the night, yeah
Tight dress with the top cut low
She's addicted to the feeling of letting go, oh-woah, let it go.

She walks in and the room just lights up
But she don't want anyone to know
That I'm the only one that gets to take her home, oh-woah, take her home

But every time I tell her that I want more
She closes the door

She's not afraid of all the attention
She's not afraid of running wild
How come she's so afraid of falling in love?
She's not afraid of scary movies
She likes the way we kiss in the dark
But she's so afraid of f-f-falling in love, love

Maybe she's just trying to test me
Wanna see how hard I'm gonna work
Wanna see if I can really tell how much she's worth, what you're worth

Maybe all her friends have told her, "Don't get closer ‒
He'll just break your heart"

But either way she sees in me
And it's just so hard, so hard

'Cause every time I tell her how I feel
She says it's not real

(One, two, three, four)

She's not afraid of all the attention
She's not afraid of running wild
How come she's so afraid of falling in love?
She's not afraid of scary movies
She likes the way we kiss in the dark
But she's so afraid of f-f-falling in love, love

What about all the things we say
Talking on the phone so late (so late)
I can't let her get away from me, oh

When I say that I can do it no more
She's back in my door

(She's not afraid)
She's not afraid of all the attention
She's not afraid of running wild (running wild)
How come she's so afraid of falling in love? (falling in love)
She's not afraid of scary movies (she's not afraid)
She likes the way we kiss in the dark (kiss in the dark)
But she's so afraid of f-f-falling in love, love

She's not afraid
She's not afraid

Oohhhh, oohhhhh


As the song ended we all fell to the floor out of breath and laughing hysterically. I can’t remember the last time I have had this much fun. We laid there laughing and talking for a long time before Mone got up to check the time on her phone.


“Oh my god guys we gotta go its already 3:45 and our flight leaves at 6:00!” Mone said grabbing her bags and running out the door with me and Mone close behind her.




We reached the airport just in time to go through security and we bored the plane at exactly 5:45 giving us 15 minutes to chill before takeoff. I wasn’t a big fan of flying so of course I was a nervous wreck.


“Guys? I’m scared. What awaits us in New York?” I asked playing with my fingers as I waited for a reply.


“Oh Carry everything is going to be fine. I have a feeling this trip is going to be amazing. Possibly life changing. But know what ever happens we always have each other. Theirs nothing to worry about just sit back and relax. We have a long flight ahead of us and you need some rest.” Janae put her hand on my leg and looked at me with pity in her eyes and for once in my life I felt like things were actually going to get better. I closed my head and leaned my head back. ‘I am ready for this. I am ready for what ever New York has to throw at me.’ I thought to myself as the plane started down the runway.




When we landed in New York it was almost midnight but we were more excited than ever so we decided to go drop our stuff off at the apartment then go to Times Square just to see it. We hailed a cab pretty quickly and arrived at the apartment racing each other up steps to the door.


“Ha made it first!” Janae said sticking her tongue out at us.

“How? You have freaking midget legs!” I said laughing as Janae unlocked the door. There was no words to how amazing this apartment was. It had 3 bedrooms 2 bath rooms a living room and a kitchen and was decorated like a 5 star restaurant.


“oh god this is amazing!” I screamed as we all took off in separate directions exploring our new home. After we looked it up and down we all met in the living room.


“Ok now its time for Times Square!” Janae screamed as we walked out to explore New York.  


The car ride was full of laughing and excitement as we made our way to Times Square which should have only been a ten minute walk from the apartment but with all the traffic it was a 25 minute drive so by the time we arrived our destination we were about to explode with happiness. We all climbed out of the cab and stood in awe at the sites around us. It was beautiful. I had never seen so many lights in one place in my entire life. I was so excited I couldn’t hold it anymore so I made my way to the middle of Times Square where I let it all out.


“HELLOOOOO NEW YORK!” I screamed at the top of my lungs. I could feel it already. New York was going to change my life forever and I had only been here for and hour…
