“Nicole, wake up. We gotta leave,” a voice said, shaking my shoulder blade. I opened my eyes, and looked at the clock beside my bed. Aargh. 4:15. I nodded, throwing the covers off of me. I put on my hoodie over my t-shirt, and threw on some sweatpants. I brushed my teeth, then fixed my makeup. I put my stuff in my bag, and looked at my room one last time. “This is it,” I thought, turning off the light.
As I walked downstairs, I heard Mum talking to him. I pressed my ear against the door frame, listening. “Now I don't want her getting into any trouble or anything while you have her in your care.” He laughed, “I know, Mum.” I walked out, “Okay, I'm ready.” He smiled, “Alright, we gotta get going if we're gonna make our flight.” Mum kissed his cheek and hugged him tight, “Be safe.” She walked over to me, giving me a hug, “I love you. Call me when you get there.” I nodded, “Okay.” He grabbed my bag, and we walked into the cold, London weather.
“No, Haz! It's mine!,” Liam yelled, grabbing the Wii remote out his hands. I sighed, looking up at my older brother. Louis smiled, setting our bags down, “Hello!!” I rolled my eyes, and sat on the couch. Niall smiled, eating a bag of chips, “Hey, Nicole.” I smiled, “Hey, Ni.” I put my earphones in my ears, and blocked everybody out. I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and saw Zayn smiling. I took my earphones out, “Oh, hey, Zayn!” I stood up and gave him a hug. He smiled and hugged me back, “Hey, Nicki. Have you gotten the tour yet?” I shook my head, “Nope.” He grabbed my hand, leading me into the main area, “This is the bunks, where we'll sleep. Niall's on the left bottom, Liam on the right bottom. I'm on the right middle, and Harry's on the left middle. Your brother is on the top right. And we have an extra spot on the top left if you wanna sleep there.” I shook my head, “Any other options?” He laughed, leading me into a room just ahead of the bunks, “We usually save this room for our guests, but since you're the only girl, you can sleep in here if you want.” I smiled, looking around. It was painted blue and green, my favorite colors. I let go of his hand, and walked into the bathroom, “Wow..” It's huge. He laughed, walking into the bathroom behind me, “Yeah, the shower could fit like 50 people, huh?” I nodded, “Yeah, kinda big for a little tour bus.” He grabbed my hand, “Yeah, so our tour continues with the other bathroom. It's behind the living area.” I nodded, walking behind him. “Hmm, hmm,” Louis cleared his throat. I looked at him. Zayn let go of my hand, “My bad, Lou.” I rolled my eyes, walking into the kitchen area, “Sorry..” He nodded, “It's all good. I mean, you're like a little sister to me. And if the paps got pictures of us holding hands, it would be bad. I don't think Perrie would like it, too much.” I nodded, “Yeah, thankfully Perrie knows me, and she knows that me and you are like brother and sister.” He nodded, “Yeah.” I smiled, “Let's continue!” He nodded, pointing at the kitchen, “Well, obviously, this is the kitchen area. We cook in here.. even tho it's almost always take out.” I laughed, “Is that why Louis wanted me to go on tour with him?! So I could cook for you guys?” He laughed, “Kinda.” I playfully punched his arm, “Jerk!” He smiled, “We needed you here for cooking, and because it gets boring with just guys around, ya know?” I nodded, “Yeah.. this is gonna be my first time on an airplane, tho! So it's gonna be fun.” He smiled, “Trust me! It's really cool. You just gotta watch out for some fans. They're kinda crazy.” I nodded, “I kinda noticed.” He nodded, “Alright, so that's pretty much it!” I nodded, “Cool! Thank you for my tour, Mr. Malik!” He smiled, “You're welcome Miss Tomlinson!” I laughed and walked back into the living room area where the boys were. Louis gave Zayn the stink eye, and I just rolled my eyes, “How much longer before we're at the airport?” Liam smiled, “About 10 minutes, love.” I smiled back, “Thanks.” I sat beside Harry, “So... are you really dating Kendall Jenner?” He rolled his eyes, “No. We're close friends. That's all.” I nodded, “Oh.” He put his earphones in his ears. I sighed and got up, walking to my room. I grabbed my bag and looked inside of it. I took out my phone and went on twitter. As I sat on my bed, I thought to myself. “I've only been on tour 40 minutes, and I already got somebody mad at me. Well, this is just great.” I went back into the living area, and saw the boys with their stuff. “Come on, get your stuff,” Louis said to me. I nodded, walking back in my room and grabbing my bags. I came into the living room again, and Louis looked at Niall, “Niall, take Nicole to the plane. Make sure nothing happens to her.” He nodded, taking my hand. He whispered, “Cover your face. Ignore whatever they say, okay?” I nodded, unsure of what I had gotten myself into.
We opened the bus doors, and walked/ran into the airport. I heard the question, “Who's that?!,” a lot. Sometimes, “Are you and her dating, Niall?!” And a lot of, “Ew! She looks ugly,” “You can do so much better, Ni!” He squeezed my hand tighter, and mumbled, “Don't let them get to you.” I nodded, walking into the lobby of the airport.
We boarded the plane as soon as we could. “I CALL A WINDOW SEAT!,” Louis screamed, running to the window. I rolled my eyes, laughing. Niall smiled, looking at me, “So, do you want a window seat?” I shrugged my shoulders, “Doesn't matter to me. Am I sitting beside you?” He blushed a little, “I-If you want to.” I smiled, “Alright. LOU!” He turned around to the back of the plane, “Yes?” I smiled, “I'mma sit beside Niall.” He nodded, “Mhm. Sure. Okay.” I sat across from Louis. I sat on the right side of the plane, and near the window. Niall let out a sigh of relief as he sat down. I giggled a little. He smiled, and looked at me, “So... as much time as I've spent with your brother, I don't really know you that well, babe.” I nodded, turning my body around to face him, “I know! Okay, let's play 20 questions!” He laughed, “Alright. Who gave you your first kiss?” I blushed, looking down, “Umm...,” I looked over at Louis, who was busy in a conversation with Zayn. I smiled, and looked back at Niall, “nobody yet.” He laughed, “You've got to be kidding me! Why hasn't anybody kissed you yet?” I shrugged my shoulders, “I dunno.” He smiled, “Okay, your turn.” I looked at him, “Umm, well Louis talks about you boys a lot, so I really know a lot about you guys. Haha.” He laughed, “So you're stalking me, basically?” I rolled my eyes, “Oh, of course!” He laughed his perfect laugh, “Alright, well at least I'm getting stalked by a cutie.” I blushed, then smiled, “Your turn.” He smiled, “Alright. Umm.. tell me a little about you.” I nodded, “Alright. I am 16. My favorite colors are blue and green. I play soccer a lot, and umm I like Justin Bieber and Austin Mahone.” He smiled, “Cool. I like JB, too.” I smiled, and nodded my head, “Yup!” He smiled, and let out a yawn, “Well, I'm gonna get some shut eye, love.” I nodded, “Okay..”
