"Líadan get your ass over here!" I hear my best friend's voice call to me. I haven't seen Niall in months and I finally got a chance to move out to London.
"Had sex with any stars recently Líadan?" Niall asks me after I hug him. And no, he doesn't mean celebrities, he means balls of gas in space.
When we were in year six we had to look up our names for a school project and my results were:
'Líadan - (LYAH-dan) An Old Irish female name. Líadan was a poetess, beloved by the poet Cuirithur, even though she was a nun. The mother of Saint Ciarán of Seir was also named Líadan. Legend has it that she conceived Ciarán after swallowing a star that had fallen into her mouth while she lay sleeping.'
Since it said Líadan conceived Ciarán by swallowing a star Niall assumed that meant Líadan had sex with it so now he is waiting for the day when I have sex with a star.
"No Niall, not yet. But hopefully after I meet your friend Harry I will have," I say teasingly to Niall. He made it very clear that even though I'm not living with the boys I can't date any of them, I wouldn't dream of it either but I like teasing Niall.
"First off, Harry's not a ball of gas, second NO!" Niall yelled in my face. Silly Niall.
"I'm just joking Niall, calm your tits. I promised I wouldn't date any of your band mates, but is sleeping with them off limits if it's just casual?" I ask with a laugh.
"Líadan I'm not even going to answer that. How are you and Seamus doing?" Niall asks referring to my boyfriend, well my now ex boyfriend.
"Not so good, he cheated on me," I say and Niall pats my back.
"I'm sorry bud," Niall tries to comfort me. I'm really not that upset though, I'm just worried about Niall's reaction to what I'm about to say.
"No, Niall, he cheated on me with Colin Hogan from down the street," I say and Niall bursts out laughing.
"I'm sorry Lí but he cheated on you with a guy! That's hilarious! You sure can pick 'em!" Niall says not being able to contain his laughter.
"Whatever Niall," I huff trying to change the subject, "how was tour?"
"It was brilliant! How was college?" He asks in return. My 20th birthday is in three months and I finished my fourth and final year in college last month. I'm an advanced student and was ready for college at the age of 15. My passion is writing and I wrote my first book when I was 17. It sold fairly well so I have enough money to take care of myself.
I can write from anywhere so I decided to move to London to spend more time with Niall.
"College was great, apart from being away from Seamus for so long considering he was still in high school, but I guess that's what drove him into the arms of a man, I think I'm gonna go man vegan," I say shrugging my shoulders.
"What the hell is man vegan?" Niall asks with a laugh.
"I'm not entirely sure but it was mentioned in a movie with David Tennant. I'm pretty sure it means I never date a guy again. They say after the first seven years you don't miss them," I inform my friend.
"So you're going to date girls then? That's hot Lí," Niall says and I punch him in the arm.
"I have nothing against lesbians but you know I'm not one," I say punching him one more time for good measure.
"I know that you experimented with it one time in college," Niall says and I punch him again.
"Everyone does! It's college, a time to explore yourself that you will never get to experience."
"I would like to explore you," he says with a cheeky grin. I know he doesn't actually mean it. Niall and I jokingly flirt sometimes but there are no romantic feelings between us.
"Shut up Niall," I say while punching him for the final time.
"Let's take a picture! I want to tweet it! The fans are so excited to know more about you, I haven't told them your twitter yet, I'm about to, you're about to get so many followers," Niall says whipping out his phone.
A few seconds later my phone buzzes with a tweet from Niall.
*You've all been waiting for this and here it is! My bestie Líadan and I ! @sleepswithstars*
"Niall I forgot that you made that my twitter name!" I yell at the blonde Irishman. He helped me make my Twitter in year eight and was immature about it. I still don't know how to change the name.
"Shit happens. Hey do you still have that palette expander in your mouth?" Niall asks. He and I had gotten braces at the same time but I still have my palette expander.
"Yes I do. I think I still have some lasagna from earlier stuck in it if you're hungry?" I suggest trying not laugh. He just shakes his head while scrunching his nose. I love Niall. I've missed my best friend.
"Um no thanks. But we better hurry to baggage claim before I get spotted," Niall says hurrying me off to a different area in the airport.
"I have two big suitcases that should be in baggage claim along with my carry-on here," I say gesturing to my backpack which holds my laptop, a few books and some clothes in case my suitcases got lost.
"What do the suitcases look like?" Niall asks.
"Well, one's a TARDIS and the other is just plain Doctor Who," Niall and I have always loved Doctor Who, me more than him but I think he loved it because I did.
"Should be easy to spot," he says with a laugh. I've missed his laugh. When I'm around him it seems as though it's nonstop.
"Here we go!" Niall says grabbing my bags, "now let's roll out!"
