Life went on and my birthday come up. I become eighteen years old and had a big party for all friends. When I got home that night rang Niall, although he had congratulated me earlier in the day.
"I want to give you something, but where do I send it?"
I sat down on the bed and yawned.
"What do you mean?"
He seemed to have planned something.
"If you get tickets to a concert, you will go then?"
I smiled and laid me down.
I fell silent and just stared at the computer.
Niall laughed again.
"I came across two tickets and you can bring a friend or your mom?"
I sat up again.
"Is it them you work for?"
Niall cleared his throat lightly.
I smiled and realized that Niall really knew the guys in One Direction. I sat straight up and pondered.
"Well, I had to go there."
Niall seemed satisfied.
"And if I ask you out that night?"
"We have talked to each other so long that we ought to take that step. Lets say that we don't fall in love and we don't like how the we looks? We can still be friends?"
There was something in what he said.
"But you don't know what I look like, how will you find me among the thousands of fans?"
"If you get a ticket so you can go backstage"
I almost fainted. Talking about that, I was happy that Niall had found me. He could make sure that I got to meet the guys and he could make sure that I got to go where no one else could.
"Still, you have the problem that you don't know what I look like!"
"If you refuse to send a photo of you, you can the day before tell me what you're going to wear?"
I smiled weakly.
"And if you see me, but run away?"
"I promise to take with me a red rose and I promise to go to you."
I hesitated and didn't know if I would say yes. Partly, I wanted to go and see One Direction, because my mom couldn't afford it. Then I wanted to see who he was, but I was so scared.
"If I say yes?" I asked. "Promise you will not disappoint me and leave me alone without talking to me?"
"You know that I'm not such a guy? Go and ask your mom if that's okay?"
"I'm old enough to take responsibility and I will choose ..."
He interrupted me.
"Say yes, then?"
Niall cheered and to my great surprise, I heard him yell to a friend.
His friend came to the computer.
"I told you she wouldn't be able to resist such an invitation?"
I laughed and heard how happy Niall was.
"So Lilly., We do like this! You go to the stadium and at the cash desk are two Tickets in your name. Promise to get them three hours before it starts."
"And bring a friend who's nice, so she doesn't destroy anything."
Mom was surprised. She stood in the middle of the kitchen floor and just stared at me.
"He must be rich?"
"If you work for One Direction your perhaps rich?"
She smiled and nodded.
"So who do you bring with you?"
"I don't know, I don't want to take with me Emma, because she been against Niall from the beginning."
Mom laughed a little bit.
"So you choose me? I don't even listen to them?"
"You can go to the hotel when I meet him, but be there in case something happens?"
"And you call me if he would be a fool?"
I laughed and nodded
"It will be a fun evening."
She nodded and sat down on the chair.
"You're lucky you met him, you have dreamed about to see them in real life and now you will, because a gay on the internet? You've grown!"
I smiled and nodded with satisfaction.
"I'm eighteen years old."
Mom looked dreamily at me.
"A dangerous age, but I wish I could force you to stay at home. Yet I know that you need your wings and you have to discover the world."
"You're a poet?"
She laughed and shook her head.
"No, I'm just afraid that you will leave home and then you disappear completely."
"Good choice!" Niall said as soon as I had told him that my mom would come with me. "Then you don't need to be afraid."
"Should I be afraid?"
"No, because I will take care of you and I promise I will not disappoint you."
I laughed a little bit.
"Sometimes you have to be crazy to get somewhere."
I chose to buy a new dress. It wasn't exactly challenging, but just as okay that I looked a bit sexy in it. Mom paid for the clothes, because she knew it would be an important evening. I realized how much she really stood behind me and I was surprised that she trusted me.
"You haven't had a boyfriend." she said and smiled. "I trust you, because I know in my heart that he has to be special. You never flirted with anyone in the school and you didn't chase after a single guy. Now you have found one, then I will not stop you."
I longed to the day I would go and see One Direction. I didn't know if it was them or Niall I longed to, but I chose to say Niall to everyone else. It sounded more believable.
"One week left Lilly."
I smiled at the screen.
"Please don't be nervous."
"But it's a big step for me. We don't know whether we going to be disappointed or not."
"You know what I said before, you'll never make me disappointed."
I gulped and looked at the dress. It hung on the closet on a hanger and I wondered if he'd like it.
"How will you dress yourself that evening?" I asked. Niall paused and then laughed.
"It will be a surprise., All you need to remember is the rose."
I smiled and nodded.
"And you just need to think that I have a red dress on."
He seemed to like my taste in clothes and I heard he sighed.
"I miss you!"
I was flabbergasted.
Niall sighed again.
"I still want to see you, touch you and be able to kiss you."
I blushed and swallowed.
"Niall, I haven't even kissed a guy. I don't know how to do it!"
He did not care.
"I can teach you?"
"Okay? That's if you fall for me?"
He seemed not to care about my stupid thoughts.
"I've already fallen in front of you and now you get to help me up."
