WOW! Know how many times I've been bumped into and the girls have screamed their heads off? That's why I took her into the ally. So most people wouldn't hear. But, when I grabbed her wrist's I noticed something that made my heart pound and memories flood back to me. I had to block them out.
The cuts that she had on her wrist made me weak in the knees for at least five minutes. Why would she do that though? She was so beautiful. Why would she want to hurt herself? Her face had screamed out that she was scared and I didn't know how to help her. I don't think she knows that I saw them either. Well what do I do now?
She's the girl that I saw from the airport window exactly one year ago when we left last time. The one who seemed genuinely sad to see us go. Even then something about her intrigued me that I still remember her. There just seemed to be something about her that made me want to get to know her. In that moment my phone starts to ring a feeling in me tells me that it's Liam calling. I check the caller ID and see that I was right.
"Hey Liam. What's up?"
"Someone saw you in downtown." Well shit. I was going to be in so much trouble for this from management. They were going to want to know what was going on. I wouldn't be able to tell them and then I'd be on house arrest.
"Earlier today. Probably about a couple of minutes ago. Pictures have just surfaced of you leading this girl into an ally." That's even worse. They couldn't find out about her. Fans would go crazy and make things worse. "Who was it and what happened?"
"Liam, nothing happened. She wasn't paying attention to where she was going and she bumped into me. I took her into the ally so no one would hear her scream and we talked for a bit."
"Okay but, who was she?"
"Her name is Taylor Simmons. And Liam there's something really important about her."
"And what is that?" He sounded upset. He must know what was coming from management. I mean, Liam didn't get upset often.
"She's the girl from the airport the last time we were here." I let that sit there for a minute hoping it would calm him down.
"Ni, you need to stay in contact with her. Ask her out or something. Trust me. Fate's trying to tell you something if it is the same girl."
"But what if it's not the same girl? What if she's just going to use and betray me like so many other girls?" I was honestly scared of that happening.
"Then that's what happens. But there's still the chance of her actually being someone special and different. You need to give her a chance before you assume she's going to do that." He was right. I let out a sigh.
"Thanks Liam. I'm on my way home now."
"K. See you soon."
I hang up the phone with determination in my mind. I'm gonna find out if what I felt last year for this stranger, was still there and if it was true or if it was just because I was hoping and looking for love.
"Taylor, you're late." My mom is standing at the door as I walk in. Her arms were crossed and there was a fire in her eyes. I was in trouble for sure.
"I know mom, I know. One of my teachers kept me after cause the needed to talk to me." I knew it was a lie but I was hoping she didn't.
"What did they want?"
"They wanted to talk to me about my studying habits."
"Did you fail a test?" My mom shot me a look that could have killed.
"No, no. It's the fact that my teacher wants us to write how long we studied at the top of the test and I always put zero minutes because I don't study." That wasn't technically a lie.
"Okay. Dinner's almost ready so, go wash up."
I walk upstairs and into my room. I'm not dirty. A little hand sanitizer and I'll be fine. I go on-line to see in anybody's giving up One Direction tickets yet again but no luck. I decide to check twitter while I'm at it.
I see that I had one more follower so I decide to go check who it is and it is the one and only Niall Horan. I smiled. I didn't really understand why he followed me but...whatever. It was still considered a follow.
I go to check my messages when a new message box pops up with his name in it. It says "Hey beautiful"
OMG! What do I say? He just called me beautiful! Ok Taylor just calm down and not act like a carroty fan that didn't actually care if the boys were happy or not.
"Hey." I reply. Wow. Did my reply have to be so lame. I let out a groan. I minimize the window thinking that he's not gonna reply to my lame reply. That's when I hear the ding that lets me know that someone has messaged me. I look to see who it is and, to my great surprise, it's him. My eyes were wide with shock. He could talk to any girl. Any one of his millions of followers and he chose me.
"You wanna hang out tomorrow?"
"Sure" Is this a date? Did Niall Horan from One Direction just ask me out?
"Cool. where you wanna go?"
"well since we dont have a nando's...we could go to the park."
"lol. cool with me." Do I ask if it's a date, or just infer that it's not? "What time do you wanna meet up?"
I think on it for a moment and then decide that since tomorrow's Saturday, I could get up early for him."What about nine-thirty?"
"Sure. I g2g but i'll see you tomorrow"
OH MY GOD!!! Did that really just happen? Am I really hanging out with Niall Horan tomorrow? I really couldn't believe it. It was a miracle. All of my dreams were coming true. Except for the concert part. The biggest smile came onto my face as I realize that I really was hanging out with my biggest idol tomorrow.
"Taylor! Let's go!" I sigh and scramble to get up. Dinner time.
