An Irish Adventure!
2:00 PM GMT
I was walking around Dublin and asked random people about good tourist attractions. I know what you’re thinking, and yes it’s dangerous to talk to strangers. I ended up finding something interesting. This really cute Irish blond with blue eyes said: “Why don’t ya go to Blanchardstown? They have an amazing shopping centre.”
“Sounds great! Thank you!”
“You’re welcome beautiful.” I walked awkwardly away and blushed. Wow. I've never been told by a guy that I’m beautiful. Probably shouldn’t get so attached though, since I won’t be in Dublin that long. I decide to call a taxi and go to Blanchardstown Centre. When I got there, my jaw dropped. That guy was right! ~

It’s been two days since Diana left. I hope she’s having fun! When I finally finished all my summer history homework, I called up Sarah. “Hey Sarah! Want to hang out?”
“Sure! But do you mind helping me finish up some chores? My parents told me before they left for work that I could go out if I do my chores…”
“How much do you have left?” “I haven’t started yet…”
“Don’t worry! If you come over and help I won’t slack! Promise!”
I decided to pick up doughnuts and coffee before heading over. Since Sarah didn’t do her chores, she probably hasn’t had breakfast yet. “Chelsea you are a lifesaver!”
“Thanks, I get that a lot.” We both laugh.
“AND YOU BROUGHT DOUGHNUTS!! HORRAY!” We sit down in the dining room and eat.
“So, do you miss Diana?”
“Well yeah I do! I hope she’s having fun with her dreamboat. What do you think she’s up to?”
“I don’t know…maybe she’s shopping?”
“Nah. I don’t think her program parents would let her go shopping. What if she spends too much?”
“That’s actually logical. It can teach her about spending money because let’s face it, our Diana can be a shopaholic sometimes.”
“Oh definitely. I wonder if she’ll get us some souvenirs.”
“Okay enough chit-chat Sarah. Time to clean!”
“Do I havvvve to?”
“If you want more doughnuts then yes.”
“UGH. Fine.” As soon as we finish, we head out to the movie theater.

I think I regret telling Harry about Diana. As soon as I got home from work, I caught him scribbling something in his notebook. “Hey what are you doing?”
“No you’re not! School was out hours ago! GIMME!”
Oh my god. This has turned into an obsession. The page literally had Diana’s name all over it. “This is too far! I’m telling mum to cancel this program kid!” Harry snatched the notebook from my hands.
“IT’S NOT AN OBSESSION!” And then he ran to his room. For a 15 year old, he can be such a little kid. Good thing I didn't show him what Diana looks like…
I CAN’T STAND IT WHEN GEMMA’S SO NOSY! I sit do at my desk and try to calm myself by imaging what Diana looks like. I want it to be a surprise when I meet her so I stop. I can’t wait!

After spending the entire day in Blanchardstown, I crash on my hotel room bed tired as I could ever be. It was so great, I’m so tired from it all. I got souvenirs for my parents and my besties. And I got an ‘I <3 Dublin’ T-shirt for myself. After changing, I called my parents to tell them I’m fine and the flight’s reschedule. Then I decided to call Chelsea and Sarah to see what they’re up to.
6:30 PM EST
*RING! RING! BANANA PHONE! RING! RIN- “Hello?” Yeah, Diana isn't the only one with a silly ringtone. “Yeah. Hold on. CHELSEA! IT’S DIANA!”
“Oh! Put it on speaker!”
“Okay. Diana you’re on speaker and Chelsea is also in the room.”
“Hey guys! How are you?”
“We miss you so much! How’s Cheshire?”
“Yeah, you dating your lover yet?”
“Sorry Chelsea! I couldn't help it…”
“To be honest, I’m not in England yet.” Chelsea and I were shocked.
“Well, you see…”
30 minutes later…
After calling, I watched a movie then fell asleep. I was dreaming about Harry and his family. Gemma told me Harry was trouble and a heart breaker and how he obsessed over me when he only figured out my name. Then she gave me a notebook and she told me to open it. It had Harry’s name on the inside and I flipped through until…
Until I saw a page with nothing but my name doodled in it. I was shocked and Gemma sat there taking in my expression. I couldn’t believe it. I kept having Harrymares (funny right? Haha not really) all night. Not it wasn’t harry doing something bad to me, it was just Gemma showing me his bad qualities and proving I shouldn’t date him. I guess Gemma is right, that I shouldn't even consider dating Harry. Besides, who falls in love in 6 weeks?
