I ran into our private house we owned in Los Angeles. We had arrived about two hours ago, but as usual, I was hungry. I went out and found a Nandos, and decided to bring it back to the house. As I entered, I had just realized that I had only gotten food for myself and not the boys. I quickly opened the door, secretly praying they wouldn't be mad.
"GUESS WHO HAS NANDOS NOW?!" I shouted as I opened the door, revealing the boys sitting around the kitchen table.
"What? Paul's on a date, who went with you?" Liam asked.
"I went by myself."
"Didn't you get attacked by fans though?"
I walked out of my car in a sombrero and a fake mustache. I know, typical disguise, right? I doubted anyone would notice me though, I mean, not unless they looked into my eyes or anything. I locked my car and opened the door to Nandos. I inhaled the smell loudly and eyes began falling on my body. I realized the only way people wouldn't recognize me is if I didn't act like myself, so I speed-walked to the cashier. She had thick, black hair and gauges in her ears. In a way, they kind of creeped me out, but at the same time it they were pretty cool.
"Can I help you?"
I spoke in a Spanish accent. "Yes, uhm I'd like-"
"Woah," she cut me off, "Are you by any chance Niall Horan of One Direction?"
Fuck, she looked into my eyes. "What??" I started sweating, searching for a lie in my brain. "No! You must be mistaking me for my cousin! I am... uh.. Dick! Niall's Spanish cousin!"
"You know, I'm a huge One Direction fan. I'm pretty sure Niall doesn't have a Spanish cousin, he's Irish."
"Yes , well... Uhm... Niall has a... Secret family! That's it!" I raised my finger in the air, attracting more eyes to lay on me.
"Yes! We uh... don't want to tell the world. We don't want the world to mistake us or anything, you know?"
"Uh-huh..." She didn't sound very convinced.
"Can I order now? I'm starved."
"Oh! Of course." She looked at me skeptically as I told her my order, trying to avoid her gaze.
"Uhm, I'll have three chicken buckets, two large fries, and two medium sodas."
"You sure do have Niall's appetite..."
"It runs in our family!"
The cashier gave me my food and I walked back out to my car, eating some of the fries on the way back to the house.
End of Flashback
"Niall, you do realize that everyone in there who's a directioner probably recognized you," Zayn stated.
"What do you mean?"
"That was your Saturday Night Live costume and name... remember?" Liam asked.
I shrugged. "The point is I only got stares when I shouted out loudly," I stated proudly.
"Wait, what?!" Louis asked, confused.
"Why so quiet over there, Haz?" Zayn asked Harry. He was sitting at the end of the table reading a Jack Wills magazine, probably the latest edition.
"At least he's reading," Liam said.
Harry instantly looked up. "What's that supposed to mean?!"
"You never read!" Liam protested.
"Yes I do!"
"Harryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!" Louis had crossed over to him and touched his nose with Harry's, who pushed him away slightly.
Zayn, completely confused by Harry's actions, went behind him and read a bit of the portion Harry was looking at. "Ohhhhh," he said in a flirty voice.
"What is it?" Liam asked.
"Shut up!" Harry exclaimed.
"What is it, Zayn?" I asked, repeating Liam's question.
Zayn took me and whispered, "I think Harry likes a girl" in my ear.
"Ohhh!!" I was so excited! Harry tends to like girls a lot, but this is the first time he's never seen her in person. I peeked over and looked over Harry's shoulder to see a sexy girl in a Jack Wills sweatsuit. Her name read "Lily Matthews: Newest Model!"
"Tell me!!" Liam pouted.
Harry looked up at Liam and Louis with devil eyes, not even realizing Zayn and I were behind him. "Fine, since you just have to know, there!" Harry turned the magazine around, showing Louis and Liam the extremely attractive picture of Lily. Louis grinned and Liam's eyes widened.
"Damn," Liam exclaimed.
"Happy now?" Harry asked, obviously annoyed.
"Yes," Louis replied.
"Very," Liam followed.
"Hello! You two have girlfriends!"
"No I don't," Liam said.
"Well, Louis does! Haz, Liam, and I should be drooling over her! Is she single?" I desperately asked Harry.
"I sure hope so," he responded.
"Wait, but why were you even reading that?" Liam asked.
"Well I was looking at new clothes and it kinda flipped to her..."
"Liam, shush! She's hot, OK?"
"HELLO! My Nandos is getting cold!" I exclaimed, very upset.
"Then eat it," Liam said as he looked at me with confusion.
"Good idea!! Thanks Liam!!" I hugged him and took out one of the three chicken buckets I had ordered.
"Well, now that we've got that all cleared up, why don't we do another twitcam for the fans?" Harry suggested.
I responded with food in my mouth, "Sounds good!"
Harry got up and went to his room. About a minute later, he came back with his tripod and camera, setting it up to show all five of us. "Ready?" He asked. The four of us nodded in response. I continued eating as Harry hit record and sat in the middle of the four of us.
"Hi, I'm Harry."
"I'm Niall," I said, chewing on chicken.
"And I'm Zayn"
"And we're One Direction." I loved hearing our five voices say that all at once. It made me feel like I belonged. These boys were practically my brothers, and they were so important and special to me. I continued eating as we continued the twitcam.
"I have Nandos!" I stated as Louis began laughing at me.
"Sorry we haven't been making any of these lately, we've been very busy with tour."
"So we just want to say a massive thank you to you guys for still supporting us and coming to the concerts and everything. Also, thank you for buying our cover of One Way Or Another for Comic Relief and Red Nose Day- it really means a lot," Zayn said, being his cheerful self.
"So to make things go back to the way they did before, we’re gonna be answering questions you guys sent in!" Louis exclaimed.
Liam read the first question. "The first one is from Carina. She wants to know what the last food we ate was."
"NANDOS!" I screamed. Louis and Zayn automatically began laughing, and I had a feeling they knew that was coming.
"I think I had water... does that count?" Liam asked, chuckling a bit.
"Oh silly, little Liam. Silly, little Liam," Louis said as he started petting Liam's hair.
"Lou, please don't pet me..."
Harry read the next question. "The next one is from Natalie. She wants to know our current relationship status."
Liam answered the question for us, "Hmm well let's see, Louis and Eleanor are still together, and so are Zayn and Perrie... and the rest of us are single!"
"Anything to add, Harry?" Zayn asked.
But Harry wasn't answering. He looked kind of zoned out.
"Harry?" I asked, trying to get his attention.
"HARRY EDWARD STYLES!" Louis ran over to Harry and kissed his cheek, much to everyone's surprise.
"Woah! What was that for?" He jumped.
"Larry moment, obviously..." Liam added in.
"To wake you from your daydream of Lily!" Louis exclaimed. "Anyways, we just found out Harry has a crush on a girl named Lily."
"Shut up..." Harry blushed red and he hid behind me as I waved to him.
"She's a Jack Wills model," I said.
"AND she looks like this!" Zayn held up the magazine with the picture of Lily on it.
Harry jumped up, giving Zayn a mini death stare. "OK, just to be clear-"
"Harry is madly in love with her," Zayn finished.
"I am not! I just think she's really hot! Oh crap I just said that on camera..."
"SUPERMANNNNN IS HERE!"
"No, Harry protested!" Harry said, mocking an earlier one of our video diaries.
"I know what I said!"
Liam, Zayn, and I quickly said bye as Harry and Louis argued about if it was Jimmy or Harry. I was pretty upset with myself, I didn't mean to reveal Harry's crush. I mean, I just wanted to play a small joke. I felt really bad, so I quickly ran out of the room to my own bedroom. I shut the door behind me and laid on my bed, thinking about what was about to come of the twitcam.
I closed my laptop, confused but amazed at what I had just watched. Harry Styles... the Harry Styles... likes me? No, that can't be right. No guy has ever made an effort to tell me that. Well, Harry didn't tell me, his friends kinda said it over the camera. I started in disbelief at my computer, afraid to open it to find more things about me from the boys. I grabbed my phone and tapped the twitter app, only to realize I'd probably be getting talked about on there. What if directioners thought I was ugly? What if they hated my height? My hair? What if I was too skinny or too fat; so many things kept rolling through my mind. I felt like I was dreaming, but I knew I wasn't.
"Sweetheart! Dinner!" My mom came into my room and looked at me with a confused expression on her face. "Is everything alright?"
I was tempted to ask her to pinch me to see if I was dreaming, but she might think I was crazy. "I'm fine, Mom," I replied.
"Come on, I don't want the food to get cold!" She exclaimed as she walked out.
I put my laptop away and followed her downstairs, still praying it was a dream.
But I knew it wasn't.
