A Childhood Memory

Basically, this story is about a girl called Samanda, who was best friends with Niall Horan since birth. Sadly, she had to move away to London from Ireland when they were both just 12 years of age. It must be by fate that these two saw each other after 7 years. Samanda had been a fan of One Direction since the day she saw Niall audition for X Factor, as she realised that he was her childhood best friend when he entered the stage.

2. The surprise

**3 YEARS LATER**

 

Me and Scarl had started high school by this time. We were 3 month into the first term. We loved the school. We didn't have many friends at the time, only a couple who we only knew enough to smile at, but the teachers were so nice! They were there for support when you need it. Especially our head of year, he was so funny! I felt like he was a real friend you know? We always told him all the gossip about One Direction, and it was a good feeling to be able to tell him that Niall, the most loved member of the band was my best friend as a child. I didn't tell many people, only Scarlett and my head of year. I was happy living the school life the way it was, just me and Scarl. I didn't want the hassle of people bothering me about it all the time, it would have upset me thinking that Niall wouldn't have even recognised me. 

 

Anyway, the first year of high school went by pretty fast. I did enjoy it a lot. However, as the years went by, I missed Niall more and more.

 

It was coming up to Christmas. My dad had a new girlfriend and he'd been with her for about 3 years by now. They had a child together and they were getting married on Boxing Day. Me and Fern were flying over to Ireland to visit that Christmas. We were flying early on Christmas Eve-Eve morning. I was excited to see my dad again after just over a year, and meet my 1 year old little sister. And also to see my lovely step mum, Karen. My little sister looked so adorable from seeing videos and pictures of her. I couldn't wait!

 

**The day before me and Fern fly to Ireland**

I woke up to a banging on the front door that morning. I opened one eye and realised that Mum must have slept at her boyfriend's for this week and peered down at the bottom bunk, to see that Fern was still fast asleep. "Urgh. I guess I have to answer the door this morning" I whispered to myself. I walked out of my bedroom and to the front door. My home was only a bungalow. (A big one, may I add). This has been my "home" since we got here, and no, I did not like it not one bit! I didn't like the neighbours, I didn't like the street, the village or the town. In fact, I didn't like anything about London. Apart from my school and Scarlett. Anyway, back to answering the door to whoever this weird person must be, knocking at the door at 8:30am when it was the holidays! I answered the door. To see an out-of-breath, happy face pounce inside my house with a smile like a Cheshire Cat! It was Scarlett. She dived onto me, squeezing me tight. "Scarl I can't breathe!" I cried. She just laughed as I shook from her grip. 

 

Scarlett's P.O.V.

This has got to be the best day ever! Despite the fact that my best friend is leaving to go back to Ireland for Christmas and the New Year, I'm such a happy girl. I was awoke this morning by my mum. I felt her shake me and I shouted "go away" into my pillow. I am definitely not a morning person. I'm so much like Samanda. My mum told me I had to wake up that minute because she needed to tell me something.

I wrapped my quilt around me and sauntered into the dining room where my mum sat at the table with the laptop, beaming at me. I asked her politely to tell me what she needed to tell me so that I could go back to bed... 

"Scarl, you know how you and Samanda both obsess over One Direction? Well, I found some tickets for the Take Me Home tour at London 02 Arena going pretty cheap on eBay. I bought the 3, it's a Christmas present for you and Samanda. I want you to go. I know she'll be so happy. As her dad lives far away and she's always telling us how she wishes her mum would take her to see them. I know how her and Niall were so close as kids. Go to the bathroom and tidy yourself up, go see Samanda and tell her the good news. The date? 23rd of February". Those were my mums words to me. Was she serious? Tickets to see the boys me and Samanda love the most! Our heroes! 

 

With that, I dashed to get ready, almost knocking my chair over as I jumped up. I literally ran to Samanda's house. I dived in and squeezed her tight, so tight she yelled "Scarl, I can't breathe!". She shook from my grip.. 

 

Samanda's P.O.V

WHAT?! WAS THIS HAPPENING?!! Not only am I going to see my dad tomorrow, but Scarl's mum has just bought us tickets to see One Direction. I'm going to watch my childhood best friend in concert! I was so happy. I had to see Scarl's mum, Louise right away! Me and Scarl ran back to her house and I literally dived on Louise. Thanking her over and over again. A tear of happiness escaped my eye as I held onto Louise. It was like a dream come true. Things are starting to look up. Louise was a beautiful woman, with long brown hair past her shoulders. Shining brown eyes with the most beaming smile I'd ever seen. Scarlett was like the mini Louise. I loved these two girls like family. They were so special to me. 

 

Was this a dream come true?
