"Audrey!" I bring my arms out as she ran towards me.
"I missed you so much!"
"Missed you too." I let go of her, scooting over on the bench as she sat by me. This is like my favorite cousin of all. When I was still childish in my teens, I used to always play with her. Her parents were the only ones we talked to when our family as the big fight.
"It's been too long cousin." She crossed her arms, pouting.
"I know it has. So how's school been?" I change the subject.
"Eh, I've got friends and all, but this grade is too hard with all the work." She scrunches her nose crossing her arms over her chest.
"Don't say it's hard because as you go up a grade it gets more challenging." I point out.
"Oh thanks. That made me feel better." She rolls her eyes, failing to keep her giggles in.
"So how's the family with your dad?"
"They're doing good. Oh and Gigi wanted me to say hi." I've gotten better along with her dad's family because I'm close to her mom, well my aunt that's like an older sister to me.
"When you see her again, tell her I said hi too."
"So what about you? Where have you been?" She asks.
"I've been out and about with Flynn and Link. Nothing too fun."
"Where do you guys live?" For being an 12 year old she knows a lot.
"I live in the UK. How do you know all abou- it's family huh?" She nods.
"They talk about it once in a while." She shrugs. "So what's going on besides living in the UK with Flynn and Link? Any sightseeing?"
"No sightseeing yet, but I met these two and their friends." I pointed back at the boys. She looks behind me with her jaw dropping down to the floor.
"No way! Niall Horan and Harry Styles?!" I smile as she tries keeping her scream in.
"Audrey, is it?" Niall looked over my shoulder to her.
"Yes." She smiles.
"I'm guessing you're a fan Audrey?" I chuckle. She nods.
"How'd you meet them?" She looks back at me.
"A radio contest from a few months back."
"Eh, not really." I shrug.
"Hey!" Niall slaps my shoulder.
"Alright, it's on average okay." Audrey giggles at my words.
"Hey, I'm gonna go back to my tent alright? Talk to you guys later." Tina waved back at us as she fled.
"How's it like hanging out with them?" She turned towards me.
"To be honest, it's actually kind of fun. I mean, besides from going on tour with them soon." I mumble the last sentence.
"Wait, did you say what I think you said?" A smile spreads across her face.
"What did you think I said?"
"That you're going on tour with them."
"Yup. That's right." Harry winks.
"Traveling the world with them? That's awesome! Or as a Directioner would say, amaZayn, phenomeNiall, extraordinHarry, fabuLOUIS!" She giggles.
"It's going to be phenomeNiall." Niall crosses his arms over his chest, lifting his chin high in the air feeling proud of what he just said. I roll my eyes smiling.
"It's going to be amaZayn. Hm, I like that better. AmaZayn, Am-a-Zayn, aaaam-aaaa-zzz-ayyyn." I repeat it over and over in my head. AmaZayn. Hehe.
"No, it's going to be extraordinHarry!" Harry stands up lifting a fist in the air.
"Okay, calm down Styles." I chuckle.
"Okay, another round!" My aunt shouts.
"C'mon Andy!" Niall pulls me along with him.
"Trying to Horan!"
We've playing this game that my family plays all the time where the whole family joins around a big tree holding hands. A pair of two people walk around hand in hand going around the circle, then they cut off between two hands and the two people on the left side of where they cut off run the opposite way of the people that cut them off trying to get their spot back, still hand in hand. It's like duck, duck, goose.
We reach our spot before the other team, giving each other a high-five. I gasp for air trying to catch my breath.
"That was tiring." Niall looks my way.
"Dude, you ran like nothing! I'm already tired!" I look at the pair hand in hand walking around the circle eyeing Harry and Audrey on the opposite side of the circle. "Looks like it's Harry and Audrey's turn." I smirk.
They quickly cut them off, running in the same direction they were before as Audrey pulled Harry along with her. After a quarter of the way, Harry decides to carry Audrey around passing by us.
"Go Harry!" Niall shouted.
The pair makes it before Harry and Audrey leaving them in disappointment. Audrey whispers to Harry as he nods. A smirk appears on my face as they start to walk.
"Get ready Horan." I mutter under my breath.
"Ready for wh-"
"We're going to beat you!" Audrey cuts my right hand off with the other person, running away with Harry.
"We're gonna beat them!" I drag Niall along with me going the opposite way of Harry and Audrey. As we pass by them, I tap Harry on the shoulder making him stop on his tracks looking back. I pull Niall in back of me as we're halfways. I look at the gap seeing that Harry and Audrey have already caught up within seconds.
"We're almost there!" Niall runs at my side still holding my hand. We manage to make it first, until I felt something at my feet making me hit the ground as Niall, Harry, and Audrey fell along with me.
"Hey not fair! You made us fall!" Harry pouts.
"I'm fine thanks for asking." Audrey wipes the dirt off her knees, chuckling.
"Oh sorry. Are you all okay?" Harry asks.
"It's fine here." Niall replies.
"I'm good." I slowly stand to my feet looking around.
"Woah Andy! You are not okay!" Niall gasps, pointing at my knee. I look down to see blood dripping down my leg.
"Well, I guess we're done here." I shrug. I look up to see Mel looking my way then turning her head quickly. Stupid Mel. I limp my way back to the tent sitting myself on a bench elevating my leg up.
"Ooo. I seen that fall you took. You alright?" Tina walked up to me.
"Yeah just a little scratch."
"That is not little Andy!" Niall bends down looking at me knee.
"Oh thank you Niall for making it sound more worse than what it is." I shake my head.
"Oh sorry." He slumps down.
"Andy! Oh gosh, let me get you bandages." My mom walks off.
"You okay Andy?" Audrey runs up to me.
"Yeah I'm alright. It doesn't hurt surprisingly."
"I'm back." My mom kneels down wrapping the bandage around my knee.
"Thanks...mom." I try swallowing the lump in my throat. I didn't think I was ever going to say "mom" to her. I could of said thanks, but I had the urge.
"Your welcome Andy." She smiles, getting up to her feet walking away.
"Let's take a break from all the fun." Harry sits on the other side of the bench as Niall joins him.
"I'm gonna go back with my parents. See you guys later!" Audrey runs off.
"I should be getting back too. Hope your knees feel better." Tina walks off to her tent.
"You doing okay?" Harry looks my way.
"I'm fine guys, really." I assure them both as they nodded. What's up with these two?
