5. Chapter 5

I looked at the clock and it read 8AM, still I wasn’t tired. I was still sitting here talking to Niall. I was smiling really big when Aunt Mary flew into the kitchen. She raised an eyebrow and I just looked away really quickly.


Niall stopped talking and was suddenly curious in what I was looking at, thank goodness he stopped talking or that could have gotten awkward.


“Good morning Aunt Mary.” I said with the happiest voice that would come out of my mouth and I flashed a cheesy grin. She gave me a look and came over to where I was sitting. She proceeded to keep walking towards me even though it was quite evident I didn’t want her to know who I was talking too.


“Uh, so yeah how has your morning been?” I asked her in attempt to keep her from seeing Niall on the screen.


“Who were you talking to?” She asked blatantly.


“Oh, yeah a friend from California.” I said with a smile. To my dismay Niall let out a chuckle and Aunt Mary came over and was somewhat surprised to see Niall on the screen. I sighed and leaned back into my seat, this is exactly what I didn’t want to happen.


You see I wouldn’t normally care if someone wanted to know who I was talking to. But since Niall happened to be Sean’s best friend, things could get really awkward really fast.


“Oh Niall, I didn’t expect you. How are you my dear? How’s England?” She asked him rapid fire questions.


He smiled to which I had to return a smile because who wouldn’t smile back, it’s just infectious and sexy at the same time.


“It’s good; I miss how a bunch, I should be back soon, less than a week or so.” He said with another brilliant smile.


“Oh that’s wonderful sweetie. I know Sean is just thrilled to have you come back, it’s almost been a year since I’ve seen you around here.”


To that I almost choked on my spit, well I did choke on my spit and I started coughing. Way to be the awkward one Emma, way to go.


“You’ve been away from home for over a year?” I said after my little coughing episode was over.


He nodded his head and I could see the longing in his eyes. “Wow,” was all I said at first, “I’m so sorry, that must suck at times.” I said quietly.


He nodded his head and cracked a small smile, “Most of the time it really does suck, I don’t know like I miss being home. But other times it’s all so worth it. It’s a hard thing to explain.”


We all just sat there for a minute. Aunt Mary cleared her throat. I shifted awkwardly in my seat and Niall was just glancing around the room.


“Well I’ll let you kids get back to whatever you were doing.” Aunt Mary flashed a small smile in both of our directions. Niall said his goodbyes and she walked out of the room.


I leaned back into my seat and I started to yawn, my eyes started to get really heavy as well. Niall let out a small laugh. “I think you may need to go to bed babe.” He said with a small smile playing on his lips.


I got butterflies in my chest when he said babe, just like I had all night when I was talking to him. I nodded my head not really objecting to the idea because quite frankly I felt like I was about to pass out. We talked for about 5 more minutes before he was making me disconnect the call.


“Wait Emma, wait!” I snapped my eyes open and looked at him through the screen. “When will we talk again?” He asked and a small blush playing on his cheeks. I couldn’t help but to smile at him yet again.


I shrugged my shoulders. He looked really nervous, “Well how about I just get your phone number so I can text you then?” He asked really quickly. So quickly that I almost didn’t catch what he was saying.


I had a big goofy grin on my face, “Yeah.” I smiled and he looked rather relieved.


We exchanged numbers and talked for a little bit longer before we ended the call. I was about to walk upstairs to go to sleep for a little bit before my aunt stopped me in the hallway.


“So what’s going on with you and Niall?” She asked and raised an eyebrow; she tended to do that a lot to me since I’ve met her.


“Oh, nothing, just friends.” I said quickly as I stepped past her and ran up the stairs. I heard her laugh and say something else that I couldn’t quite understand; I didn’t really care because the only thing that was on my mind was going to bed.



I rolled over to find my phone in the covers and quickly checked the time. It was 2PM. I groaned and forced myself to get out of bed. I picked out a nice outfit and decided that it definitely time for a shower.


I stood in the shower for a long time. I loved it, being in the shower it was just such a great place to think. No need to worry about anything just kind of evaluate your life. In doing this I started smiling. For the first time in a long time I could truly say that I really like where my life what going. I was being social again; I went out to the clubs and even the local pub (much to my dismay). I had met Niall, now I know I had only talked to him for short period of time but he just made me happy. What made me even happier knew that this was just the first day of being in Ireland; I still had a whole summer to meet more people and make even greater memories. The thing that thrilled me the most though was that Niall was coming back to Mullingar sometime soon. This almost made me leery because obviously I wanted to impress him, but I didn’t want to make a complete and utter fool out of myself.


I took some deep breaths and stopped thinking about Niall. After all what are the chances that he even likes me back. I then turned the glorious hot water off and dried myself off. I walked back into my room with the towel covering myself. I put on the outfit that I had picked out from earlier. It was a pair of high waisted shorts and an adorable floral tank top. It still amazed me that these clothes fit so perfectly, but I wasn’t really complaining. I then ran a hairbrush through my long hair and just put some product in it. I lightly did my makeup, some powder and a little bit of mascara was all. Decently satisfied with my look I then grabbed my phone and ran downstairs.


“Hey Emma.” Sean said with a groggy voice and looked up at me and half smiled. He clearly had a hangover and I couldn’t help myself from laughing at him.


“You look pitiful.” I said after my laughing fit. He just glared at me and leaned back into the chair that he was sitting in. “What do you want to do today?” I asked him as he closed his eyes. He really looked awful.


He sighed, “Not drinking, that’s for damn sure.” He laughed and sat back up again. I nodded. “But we should go to the grocery so I can get some medicine for this headache.”


I let out a small laugh, “That sounds like a blast!” I said sarcastically and he rolled his eyes at me.


I walked over to him and grabbed his hand and pulled him up, “Well lets go then, I’m bored and I really don’t want to sit here all day.”


He flicked me in the head for pulling him up like that and he agreed to going to the grocery. No lie the flick to the head was unexpected and hurt just a tad. I followed him as I had no idea where the store was. He told me that it was easier just to walk to the store as it was just down the road and parking was a hassle.


Sean didn’t really talk that much on our little journey to the store, as was to be expected, he was in a rather grumpy mood. I decided to keep to myself because I really didn’t want to piss off a person with a hangover; there was no fun in that.


We reached the store in about 10 minutes and I lost Sean as he didn’t wait for me and just ran into the store to get whatever he wanted. I rolled my eyes and walked in. At first I was trying to find him, however that was no use the store was massive and I had no idea where I was going.  I decided the best way that I would be able to find him was by just standing near the front of the store and waiting until he had checked out with whatever he needed to get.

I got bored of waiting fairly quickly and decided to browse the magazine section. I just picked up a random one and started skimming. I literally almost choked on my gum when I came across a picture of a band. Not just a random ban but a band named One Direction. There was a picture of none other than the same Niall that I was talking to not 6 hours before.


Sean tapped me on the shoulder and said that we were leaving now. But I wasn’t moving. I was shocked. The same boy who was world famous was totally flirting with me last night. That’s why Niall and Harry both looked incredibly familiar to me last night.


“What’s wrong Emma?” I heard Sean say as I was concentrating on the picture of Niall and a group of guys.


“I,” I didn’t know what to say and I just showed him the picture of the band, and pointed toward Niall.


He just shrugged his shoulders, “Uh yeah?” He came over and looked at the picture closer, “I see Niall what about it?” He asked again.


“He’s famous? What the fuck!” I whisper screamed at him and his eyes got really big and he started dancing on his feet.


“Well I thought you knew…” he said to me and stood there very awkwardly and put his hands in his pockets.


I rubbed my eyes and looked at the picture closer. How was it even remotely possible that this gorgeous world famous boy band member took the time out of his life to talk to me for a solid three hours last night? And if I wasn’t mistaken he seemed to enjoy talking to me as well. I sighed and put the magazine down.


Sean grabbed my arm and pulled me right next to him. “Now, I know this may be shocking to you I guess, but this is old news to me alright. Please don’t become crazy obsessed with him like every other single girl in this town. He’s my best mate and when he comes home this summer I plan on spending a good amount of time with him, as I probably won’t see him for a whole nothing year after this. Please don’t ruin this summer for me by being creepy or obsessed, do you understand?” He asked me after freaking out at me.


I just nodded my head in response to his rant. I’m sure he’s had plenty of people use him to get to Niall. Actually that’s probably exactly why he’s so bitter about me finding out about Nialls true identity. What shocked me was that Niall didn’t come out and say who he truly was. Yeah he said he was a musician on tour but he didn’t really lead on to the fact that he was probably in one of the world’s most famous boy bands of all time. When and if I talked to Niall again I wasn’t going to bring this up though. Maybe that’s what he wanted, was someone to treat him like a human being again instead of being put on a pedestal and trying to keep his balance when everyone seems to be knocking you down.


Sean let go of my arm and hastily walked out of the store. I followed.

“Sean look,” He barely turned around to actually look at me, “I won’t freak out over him because he’s just a normal teenage kid like us. I won’t act like he’s a god or something because quite frankly he isn’t. I didn’t mean to freak out back there I was just truly shocked. You wouldn’t really expect someone you met on Skype to be chilling in a magazine add. Please don’t just up and ignore me now for this.”

He turned around and smiled, well that was unexpected, “Thank you.” Was all he said before we started walking back home in complete silence. It was a good type of silence though. A peaceful type of silence.


I decided I wanted to take a nap because I was exhausted. But before I passed out on my bed I decided to check my phone for my daily calls and messages.


I replied to everyone from back home telling them how everything was, truly wonderful. The last text I received was from a strange number. When I opened it up I couldn’t help but to smile as big as I had ever had before in my life.


‘It was wonderful chatting with you last night love, Skype date again soon? Niall xx.’


I replied with a yes and a smiley face. This got my heart racing but it sure helped me fall asleep with amazing thoughts in my head.
