The Exchange Student

A glimpse, a chance to meet him, that's all I asked for. I work at a restaurant for that chance, but I wonder if it will ever come...


8. Chapter 8

*Thursday Morning*       

 The air was forced from my lungs as something landed on me, I opened my eyes. Annie grinned down at me, “Get up Emily! It’s already 9:30 and you’re not up yet. What time are we meeting 1d anyways?"

I gasped, trying to get air through my lungs with Annie on top of me, "Ever tried waking someone up without sitting on them?"

 “No, but I would imagine its less fun,"

 “Yeah, well you should try it sometime,"

 “I might."

 “Whatever, can you just get off of me, please?" I asked trying to shove her off; I failed though, sometimes it seemed like Annie weighed a ton.

"Nope, not until you tell me what time we are meeting One Direction," Annie said gleefully in a sing-song voice.

“Niall didn't say what time all he said was it was today, now get off of me!"I growled finally shoving her off, making her land on the floor.

"Ow, thanks a lot, I always wanted to get shoved onto the floor,"Annie rolled her eyes before getting up."Anyways we have school today and we have to be there by 10:30 so you probably should shower and change your clothes before school. Wouldn't want you to go smelling like a fish."

"Geez, thanks a lot, I will  go do that. Can you make breakfast though? I'll probably text Niall after school to see what time we can meet them."

 "Sure, that works,so after breakfast we drive to school, be at school for like four boring hours and then get ready to meet One Direction, drive to the meeting place, fangirl in the car hope to god that we don't make a fool out of ourselves when we meet them and, and....." Annie said almost fainting from excitement.

 “Calm down Annie, deep breaths," I said, making sure Annie was inhaling and exhaling.

 "I'm fine. I’ll go at make breakfast then," Annie said turning around and going down the stairs as if nothing had happened.


"See ya after I’m done with my personal hygiene up here!" I yelled to Annie.

 “TMI!" Annie called back from the bottom of the staircase, I laughed and then walked over into the bathroom. Closing the door behind me I slipped out of my clothes and stepped into the shower.


After my shower I decided to wear skinny jeans, a red and black plaid shirt, a beanie, and some black knee high boots with dark blue laces, I changed my clothes then grabbed my backpack from on the floor beside my bed. I quickly filled it with school supplies along with my gym clothes, I slung my bag over my shoulder, grabbed my phone off my side table and checked the time on it 9:45 before hurrying downstairs.

the first thing that I saw when I came downstairs was Annie making breakfast in a pink and blue dress paired with red flats, her hair tied up in a ponytail with a pink bow holding it up.

"Wow Annie, I have to admit, you know how to put an outfit together and you look great wearing it." I told her as I walked over to the couch and sat down.

“Thanks Em, you look like.... your usual tomboy self,” Annie replied sighing.

"Why thank you, I appreciate it much," I said sarcasticly.

"Sarcasm?" Annie asked, pretending to be shocked.

"No of course not, I’ve never even heard of sarcasm," I replied, batting my eyelashes.

"Ha ha, whatever, breakfast is ready." Annie said loading two plates with French toast and eggs, I walked over to the kitchen and took a seat at the table, Annie soon joined me, bringing the food.

"Looks yummy." I said to Annie, taking a bite of my French toast. 

"Thanks Emily,” Annie replied as ate her eggs. We didn't talk after that, too busy eating so we could make it to school on time.

Annie checked her backpack to make sure she had everything before grabbing her phone off the table.

"Hey Annie is it okay if you drive us to school today?" I asked as I grabbed the car keys and walked out the door.

"Sure, but why?" Annie, looked over her shoulder a second before turning  back to the the door and locking it.

"Just because I don't feel like it." I said, shrugging.

"Yeah that's fine, ready to go?" Annie asked as I tossed her the car keys

"Yup." I replied, opening the passenger door and getting in.

Annie got in the car, started the engine and backed out of our driveway. We arrived at the college 10 minutes before classes started; Annie pulled into a parking space and shut the car off. We stepped out of the car and shut the doors behind us, Annie locked the doors and we walked toward the college building. We made it inside 5 minutes before the bell.


"What do you have first? I've got a lecture in French I need to attend," I asked, pausing to look at Annie.

“I have a test in Advanced Algebra.” Annie replied, tucking her phone into a side pocket of her bag.

"Darn I’ll see you at lunch then, bye Annie!" I said running to my lecture.

"BYE EMILY!" Annie yelled behind me heading to hers.

 I reached the lecture two minutes after it started, “sorry I’m late.” I said in french, finding an empty seat.

“That's alright Ms. Smith, we were just about to start”replied Professor Lopez also speaking french giving me a small smile. 

“I'll try to be on time tomorrow,” I murmured.

“Some of you might be wondering what we will be doing here, well I want all of you to start by only speaking french in this room, even if you aren't fluent, speaking, using the language will help you learn.....” Mrs Lopez said in English, I silently listened, still understanding her when she switched to French. Carefully I took notes pausing every so often to look through them.


Two more lectures and one more hour of school it was finally lunch, I met Annie at our normal table near the back of the cafeteria. “Yeah it’s finally lunch, I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.” I told Annie rubbing my stomach to prove my point.

“Me too, but hunger mixed with fear, and nervousness don’t really make for a happy stomach.”  Annie said, seeming to turn a little green just at the thought.

“Yeah? Just think, after lunch and we can meet them.”

“I’m trying not to so then I won’t puke,” Annie grumbled.

“Sorry about that Annie, ready to eat something?”

“Yep, let’s do it.” We made our way to the food line and loaded up our plates with French fries, mac and cheese and 1 hamburger each. Annie refused to let me pay for my food so she paid for both of the lunches and we sat back down to eat.


We finished eating, threw away our garbage, set our trays on the stack over the garbage can and made our way to the door.

“You ready for this Annie?”

“Not really, but I'll drive to the hotel to meet them though.” Annie replied smiling.

“Me either, you can drive anyway.” I said smiling back at her,

“That’s nice of you but I would be driving either way.” Annie said sticking out her tongue.

“Yep, I’m just nice like that.” I said opening the door for her and let it bang closed behind me, we made our way to Annie’s car and hopped in. “Can I turn on the radio Annie?” I asked,

“No but you can connect my iPhone to the stereo though.”

“Okay, that works.” I said plugging Annie's iPhone to the stereo with the cord in the car.

I accessed the music app on Annie's iPhone and asked her who she wanted to listen to, she replied “who else?”

“Oh okay I know who.” I replied turning on "Steal My Girl by One Direction".

“Yeah, love this song!” Annie exclaimed as she sang along.

“I knew you would,” I replied smiling at her before I started singing along too.

I took out my iPhone and texted Niall: Hi Niall, me and Annie are headed toward the hotel should be there in about an hour or so what time do you wanna meet up?

 His reply came a couple minutes later. Me and the boys are at the hotel right now so I’ll see you when you get here. Looking forward to it, we're in room 521 top floor.

My reply: kk. See you then ttyl

“I just texted Niall and he said we can meet up anytime him and the boys are at the hotel right now in room 521 on the top floor.” I said, grinning as Annie squealed.

“Awesome!”Annie said; I could see that she was trying not to freak out. She is doing a good job of keeping her composure. I checked the time on my phone, 2:00 pm


We arrived at the hotel at 3:05 pm, Annie pulled into a parking space and shut off the car.

“You ready for this?” Annie asked me, almost jumping up and down in her seat.

“N-no, not r-really are you?” I asked

“No, Emily is it okay if before we get out of the car I can scream so I have less chance of embarrassing myself in front of 1d?”

“Sure Annie, go ahead.” And she did, I think I may be deaf but at least Annie felt better.

"Geez, remind me not to let you do that next time, people probably thought I was murdering you." I grumbled, I winced, I was going to have a killer headache later.

Annie shrugged, opening her car door,"Whatever, lets go."

We got out of the car, Annie locked the doors and followed me up to the hotel door. We said hello to the desk clerk when we opened the door, and walked over to the elevator. It dinged and the doors opened, me and Annie stepped inside. Annie pressed the 5 on the keypad, the doors closed and up we went. When we got to the fifth floor it took us a minute to locate room #521. When we finally did I knocked on the door, a second later the door knob turned and the door opened.
