After the fiasco that I will never forget, I kind of came back into a normal state of mind. I was still in a little daze though. Not long after Niall looked at me one last time, they finished meeting their fans and left. The crowd then deteriorated. Sarah and I were headed to baggage claim and then out to my car. Sarah thought it was appropriate to listen to One Direction, being that we just met them… (well two of the five, which Sarah is bummed about but whatever)… she put in the CD and cranked it. We stopped for lunch and One Direction is all she talked about when we ate. I tuned her out a little and kept picturing Niall’s blue eyes and smile in my head. It made me melt a little. After we finished, we went food shopping since we had nothing in the house. Then we headed back to the beach house, it was 5 PM.
“Oh my god. This place is so cute.” Sarah said as we pulled into the driveway.
“I know right. This is going to be a great summer.”
Sarah nodded in agreement.
I took one of her suitcases out and she got her second one. We went inside and Precious attacked Sarah.
“HI PRECIOUS!!” Sarah yelled, petting her like crazy. “Rebecca, you didn’t tell me you brought Precious with you.” She said very excited.
“SURPRISE!!” “C’mon I will help you unpack.” I walked towards Sarah’s new room.
“Ok.” She said. “This place looks great by the way.”
“Thanks. The furniture came yesterday, so I set it up. You can change anything if you want. Its your home too.” I smiled.
“NO, I love it. You should be an interior designer, instead of a math whatever.”
“I’ll think about it.” I said jokingly.
We put away her clothes and set up her bed with a blue bed spread, mine is orange. Then Sarah goes to takes a shower. I go into the kitchen to feed Precious and let her out. I quickly shower and get into comfy clothes.
“Yeah?” She pokes her head in the hallway so I can see her.
“Here’s your key to the house.” I say as I hand it to her. “I am going to bed.”
“Ok. Thanks. Love you.”
“Love you too.” I smile at her and close my door. I lay on my bed and stare at the ceiling. Precious starts to scratch at the door to come in. I get up and let her in, closing the door again behind her. She jumps up on my bed and goes to sleep. I do the same and crawl under the covers.
I drift off with the blond headed, blue-eyed boy on my mind.
I wake the next morning with something wet and cold in my face. I open my eyes to find Precious’ nose in my face and her adorable brown eyes looking at me, wagging her tail.
“Hello.” I say and stretch. I get up and go to the bathroom. Then I let Precious out and go outside myself. It was so beautiful out. The sun was up and the ocean was so peaceful crashing against the shore. I grab some orange juice and my laptop and sit outside, playing around. I go on twitter, tweeting that ‘I LOVE my new lifestyle.’
I started to check my emails, when all of a sudden I heard a squeal. I whip my head around and see Sarah coming into the kitchen, talking on her cell. I walk in and lean against the door to see what was up. I eased dropped a little.
“OH MY GOD! I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU GOT THE TICKETS FOR US!!” Sarah said. “NO WAY YOU GOT US THOSE TOO!!! YES I AM GOING!!”
‘What is she talking about?’ I thought.
“THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU DADDY! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! BYE!!” She hung up the phone.
“What the hell was that?” I asked.
“Oh nothing.” She said smiling.
“That,” I pointed at her phone, “Did not sound like nothing.”
“Ok, ok. Ready, brace yourself!”
“What is it Sarah?!” I said growing impatient.
“MY DAD GOT US TICKETS TO THE LAST SHOW OF THE ONE DIRECTION TOUR!! ITS TONIGHT IN LA!!”
“WHAT?! YOU MEAN THE GUYS WE SAW YESTERDAY?! THOSE ONE DIRECTION GUYS?!”
“YEAH!! WAIT IT GETS BETTER… MY DAD WAS ALSO ABLE TO GET BACKSTAGE PASSES FOR AFTER THE CONCERT!!”
I felt my body go completely numb. I was going to see Niall again. OH MY GOD. Those beautiful blue eyes popped into my head again.
“IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!” I asked.
“YEP. WE ARE GOING TONIGHT. SURPRISE!!!!!
“OH MY GOD!!” I screamed.
“Oh! WOW! Look at you! Excited for a One Direction concert? I thought you didn’t like them?”
‘Oh crap.’ I thought. “I don’t.” I said clearing my throat.
“You lie like a rug.”
“No, seriously I don’t like them.”
“So, you don’t want to come?!” She asked.
“NO!! I want to go!!”
“You think I am going to let my friend go by herself, unprotected.” That was such a bad cover up.
“No, I think you want to see Niall, again.”
“No…” I drift off.
“C’mon you’re such a bad liar! I saw the way you looked at him…. The way he looked at you.” She got quiet.
I looked up at her. I didn’t know what to say.
“Do you want to come or not?!” She asked.
“Sarah, that is the stupidest question you have ever asked me!!” Mocking her from yesterday.
She smiled at me and hugged me. “Yayyy!!” She screamed. “We have to get ready!!”
“Now?! Its only 11AM.”
“Sooo…. me and you have to find the perfect outfits. And if we can’t we have to go shopping!” Sarah said pulling me into my bedroom.
Sarah was right. It was a good thing that we started getting dressed early because I had no idea what to wear. I finally was able to make up my mind 10 minutes before we had to leave. Sarah and I walked out of our rooms at once, wearing two totally different outfits.
Sarah was wearing black jeans, a white tank top with a picture of One Direction with the words “One Direction” and on the back it had “1D” printed in black. She had her hair down but had a red bandana in it almost like a hair band and light makeup on. She had her rubber One Direction bracelets on and red bobs on her feet.
I was wearing a dress. The top was like an off-white tank top but a little tight and then went into a loose black and off-white striped skirt that ended right before my knees; the stripes were “v” shaped. I had a short gold chain necklace on with a gold circle with the letter “R” on it. I put on light makeup but had a little gold eye shadow on to match my jewelry. My hair was in a French braid and had a navy blue ribbon at the end to hide the hair-tie. The ribbon matched my favorite sneakers. They were navy blue high-top, to my ankle and had a strap going across the top of the laces.
“You look like a die-hard fan right now.” I said laughing.
“That’s because I am.” She said laughing with me. “Well, you look gorgeous.”
“Really?! I thought that’s what we were both going for. Now I think I should change into something more casual.” I said feeling insecure.
“No, do not change, you look beautiful. Besides we have to go.”
“Ok. Do you have the tickets and passes?” I asked grabbing my phone and putting it in my dress pocket.
“No. We will pick them up at Will Call. Now lets go!!” She was already out the door. I followed her locking the house door behind me.
We got in the Jeep and pulled out. Sarah put the One Direction CD in and was blasting it. I was very excited for tonight. Beyond excited.
But I never expected that this night would change my life forever.
