As soon as I had the tickets in my hand, me and my mom went to the hotel. We chose to eat the food and then get ready. Mom might not made herself looks great, but she helped me to get ready. When I finally stood before her, it was as if she had tears in her eyes.
"You're beautiful, and he will think the same."
"You are my mom and it's your job to say so."
She shook her head.
"No, my job was over when you were eighteen. Now it's your job to find your future life."
She was a poet again, and I laughed a little bit.
"Come on, I'm not a good looking girl, mom, and I know it."
My cell phone rang and I saw that it was Niall. I smiled and replied. He sounded stressed, but he took the time to contact me.
"Are you ready?" he asked. I laughed and nodded.
Niall seemed as nervous as I was, and I heard he almost laughed in panic.
"So go now so you have time to arrive. I don't want you to miss anything!"
"But I will go for your sake and not for One Direction."
He laughed nervously again and it seemed like he ran into a corridor,
"I can't talk more, honey."
I balked. He had called me honey? I swallowed.
"Okay, but it was you who called me?"
He laughed even more.
"I know, but I just wanted to hear your voice."
"You're just crazy?"
"I know and that's why I dare to see you.,I'm so nervous that the night will end in chaos."
"Be glad you're not on stage, you're working behind it."
Niall was silent some seconds.
"Lilly, that's one thing I must tell you ..."
I was even more nervous now and then a little annoyed. We were interrupted by someone that seemed angry at him.
"There's no time for private conversation! Do your job!"
I swallowed and hoped he would still tell me, whatever it was.
"I must go!" he whispered, and I felt disappointed. "Don't forget the rose and don't be angry."
I didn't understand what he meant.
He laughed a little bit.
"You will understand."
I was in heaven. Mom and I ended up almost as near the stage as we could. I chose to look at everyone who worked around us, but no one seemed to notice me. I wondered if Niall stood somewhere and looked at me, but after a while I realized that I had a vivid imagination. He worked with something important and he had no time to see me right now.
One Direction came out on stage and I must admit that I enjoyed every second. I know all the songs and I enjoyed their voices. I almost forgot why I was there and actually, I stopped to ponder on the meeting, which should occur. I heard on the songs I knew them so well and I ended up pretty soon in a dream state. I sang along, I took photos and I followed every movement on stage.
"Tonight is an exciting night!" Liam shouted out to the fans. "Tonight, everything will happen."
All fans erupted and I just smiled. I assumed he was right, at least in my case.
"Niall?" asked Liam and turned toward the blonde Irishman. "What's going on tonight?"
Niall blushed and seemed a little embarrassed about the issue. Liam laughed and started talking about the upcoming album which would be released. That's when it hit me! Niall Horan was Irish and my Niall online had the same voice. I swallowed and stared at him. Could it be the same Niall? Yet I beat away the thought and shook my head. Of course Niall Horan wasn't the one and he didn't chatted with ordinary girls? He wouldn't put that time on me and the chances that he was mine Niall, was minimal.
"I go to the hotel!" Mom said when it was all over. "If you get scared or anything happens, call me right away?"
I nodded and watched as she took some money out of her wallet. She smiled and pushed them into my hand.
I smiled and hugged her tightly.
"Wish me good luck."
She laughed a little bit and hugged me back.
I was so nervous I was shaking. I released her and swallowed.
"And stay at the hotel if I come home early. I don't want to have to look for you."
"I maybe is at the hotel bar, but I will go to bed early."
I nodded and smiled.
"Okay, take it easy!"
She laughed at me.
"It should be the opposite. You should take it easy!"
I laughed and nodded. She began to walk away from me and I was almost panicking. I almost regretted that I had gone on One Direction. Now it was just meeting left and I just wanted to die.
I started looking my way through the aria and walked up to a guard. I showed the ticket and smiled at him.
"I have access to go backstage. How do I get there?"
He smiled at me and seemed to look at me up and down. Then he pointed to another corridor.
"Keep walking all the way to the end where there's another guard., Show him the ticket so he let you go in."
On the way down the corridor came a message on the cell phone.
"Are you coming here or what?"
I laughed and replied.
"I walk through a corridor to the door. Wait!"
Niall replied quickly.
"I'm waiting and I have a rose."
