We arrived at the party driving the BMW I had rented this time. It wasn’t anything special over here but we looked much better than the car did and I guess that was the most important thing here. My cameras were attached to my body and hidden from the world to see but easy to get to snap the perfect pictures of me and different celebrities together at this amazing place. Ian took my hand as we walked up to the house and were about to go in. We were both nervous because it was often we couldn’t get in but somehow I did it most of the times anyway.
There was a bouncer at the door, of course there was. He was trying to get rid of intruders of course it all made sense we just didn’t need a bouncer right now.
“Diana May and Ian Smith.”
“You don’t seem to be on the list.”
“I’m Diana May I’m always on the list sir.”
“Your name is not on the list miss, I can’t let you into this party.”
“Do you even know who I am?”
“No and that’s why you’re not on the list miss. Now please step away.”
“This is so offensive. I cannot believe that you’re standing there and making fun of me on such an important night like tonight.”
I knew which card to pull to embarrass him and it was partly working already, but he still wouldn’t give in to let Ian and me in. At the same time I saw someone I knew walking just by the bouncer and the guy stopped to look at me as well. He didn’t really recognise me first but he stopped and looked at me anyway.
“It’s alright just let them in; they’re more than welcome here.”
The Irish accent made me smile and I was greeted by Niall as the bouncer let us through.
“Thank you Niall, that was really kind of you.”
“So when you said you were busy I guess he was what you were talking about.”
“Ian? God no, he’s just a friend of mine.”
He gave Ian a look and then walked away, but I didn’t really care much about it because he got us in and I was now at the possibly hottest party in London at the moment.
“What was he on about?”
“None of your business Ian.”
I left him after that to go into the party and look around. Every famous face known to England was at this party. Everyone I had already met and ever dreamed to meet was here, but my big goal tonight would be Ozzy and his family. I had met the daughter before, Kelly. She was a nice lady but she did act up sometimes and I guess that was why she got so much attention.
I was walking around sipping champagne and greeting the people I had met before. I ending up in a conversation with some radio host I had no idea who was but he seemed nice and that’s when I saw Niall again.
“Will you excuse me just a second?”
He smiled at me and gestured for me to just move away. I walked through all of the people I barely knew who was and walked up to Niall.
“What are you doing here?”
“Celebrity party of course I’m here.”
“And who’s the guy?”
“If I told you I’d have to kill you or silent you forever.”
“Because people like us are not supposed to be here.”
“You’re some mystery aren’t you Diana?”
“You remember my name?”
“Beautiful name, beautiful girl why would I forget?”
“I don’t know, I’m not that interesting.”
“But you’re mysterious and I want to figure you out.”
“I’m not an open book so it will take you time.”
“I have all the time I want.”
“Oh my, oh my Mr Horan, if I wasn’t mistaken I’d believe you’re flirting with me. I’ll catch you later.”
I pecked his cheek and winked at him before I left the room to walk around. I was taking pictures of everyone at the party and trying to get some in good light and some in the bad. The worse they looked in the picture the more money I’d get. Not meaning like an ugly selfie but something that would be bad for their image.
“What do you think you’re doing?”
A shrill voice spoke behind me. I knew the voice from movies I had been watching through my younger years when I started recognising people and wanted to know who everyone was.
“Miss Carter. Please don’t tell anyone.”
“Are you a pap?”
“I swear I’m not. My name is Diana May I’m the Swedish girl who meets every celebrity.”
I looked down and covered my leg with one of my cameras sitting on it. My thigh gap was big enough to have the camera there.
“Is it? Can I see your pictures then?”
She looked at me suspiciously and I shakily found my phone and showed her some of the pictures I had with different celebrities.
“And where’s the one of us?”
She smirked at me and I finally understood that she wasn’t trying to harm me. Bloody great actress though.
“I haven’t got one miss.”
“Aww you’re so polite. Let’s get one then. Tim! Can you do me a favour and take a picture of me and this stunning girl?”
She handed my camera to no other than her husband Tim Burton who was one of my favourite directors ever. He snapped a few pictures of me and his beautiful wife before he turned to me and introduced himself.
“Hi I’m Diana May.”
“What a beautiful name dear. So how are you enjoying the party so far?”
“It’s kinda terrifying to be honest with you sir.”
“Oh so polite.”
“Sir, I was wondering. Is it possible to get a picture with you as well?”
“Of course my dear.”
Helena snapped the picture of me and Tim before they moved on to see some of their friends. This is when Ian found me again.
“What’ve you got so far?”
“Met Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter and we’ll talk about the rest back at the apartment.”
“Uhh so I’m coming with you home tonight.”
“Save it Smith. Let’s get some more pictures. I need to meet another 8 people here before we leave and I want my 5/5 as well.”
“Oh someone’s eager.”
“Just shut up ok.”
I walked around the house and bumped into a ton of people, some of them even remembered me because I had met them like a billion times. We got new pictures and some I met for the first time. I felt really awesome as Helena stopped me to meet some actors she used to work with and it turned out to be no other than Ruper Grint and Tom Felton. They were both really lovely people and they seemed really comfortable to be around. I also met actress Emily Blunt and model Kelly Brook even though I had no idea what either of them were doing there.
Shortly before Ian and I decided it was time to go I bumped into Liam Payne. I hadn’t seen him for a long time but we usually partied at the same club and had therefore spoken plenty of times. We also took shots together when I was at that club.
“Hey, what are you doing here?”
“Just having the time of my life, you handsome?”
“Very funny Diana, where have you been for the past months?”
He embraced me a friendly hug, one of those tight ones I hadn’t had for ages. He always gave them out when he was drunk or just merry at different parties.
“Back in Sweden took a break over Christmas, but I couldn’t stay there so I decided to come back.”
“Ahh that’s amazing. So you’re going to the party tomorrow?”
“I don’t know who is coming?”
“Everyone I think.”
“I’ll think about it then, might meet up with Kendra though, she’s been asking for me.”
“Of course she has. Everyone’s been waiting for you to come back. It was like you totally disappeared for a couple of months.”
“I did, but it was needed. My parents wanted me to stay grounded.”
“But you’re an adult.”
“Things are different in Sweden sweet Liam.”
“I guess it is, are you about to leave btw?”
“Yeah I’m gonna go home and get some rest, I’ve been on the run for a long time.”
“At least come and meet my band before you leave?”
“Alright then but gotta be quick because I’m really exhausted.”
He smiled at me at took me to where the rest of his band was standing and chilling Niall looked suspicious at me when I walked up to him and the boys with Liam and my friend Ian.
Harry asked and stood up straight.
“I’m Diana May, nice to meet you.”
Harry shook my hand and then I was introduced to the rest of the band.
“And this is Niall.”
“We met already.”
Niall looked at me as he spoke and then took his beer from the shelf he had put it on and was about to leave.
“Where are you going?”
“Do you even care?”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Are you pissed at me because I got here with a dude when you don’t even know me Mr Horan?”
“Then please stop acting like it. I’m not here to ruin anything for you.”
He rolled his eyes at me and I rolled mine back at him before I turned to speak with his band mates. I got single pictures with all of them and whilst I had been taking pictures with them Niall had gone away. I’m still pretty sure he was the one to get Sharon Osbourne and tell there were intruders at her party because soon she was standing there and telling us we had to leave but she did it in a friendly way and gladly took a picture with me before Ian and I decided to go.
“See you tomorrow Liam meet me at the club at 10.30?”
He waved at me and then we left the party a bit annoyed with how it ended but I was just glad that no one had seen how I had been taking pictures of everyone in there.
