After hours of people talking to me asking how life was it was nearly 6. A couple of people left and others stayed. Greg Horan left to collect his brother from the airport and the Kelly’s and Smiths left too. A while went by and the doorbell rang. I said to my mum “I’ll get it” and walked up to the door. Greg thanked me and walked in and followed behind him was his brother. I looked up not thinking and greeted him. He introduced himself by saying “Hello I’m Niall Horan”. I stopped for a moment and thought. I heard that voice somewhere. Then it occurred to me, I looked at him and said to him “I know you”. He looked at me and said “I know you do so does half of the world”. I looked at him puzzled. I didn’t know what he was talking about. Then he said “I’m the Niall Horan from One Direction”. I was dumbfounded. “I’m so sorry I didn’t notice” I said. “It’s ok” he replied. “No I mean I met you at the 5SOS concert last winter”, I said. “Oh yea I remember you now you where the beauty I walked into” he replied. I blushed. I exchanged numbers with him. I put him down as “Blue eyed beauty”.
3 DAYS LATER:
I still am texting Niall. But I’m still having those dreams, and the thing is I can’t make out the faces of the boys. My mam and dad brought me and David (little bro) out to dinner yesterday. We went to my all-time favourite restaurant Nando’s. We came home David went to bed and us adults watched some movies. At 12am I went up to bed. I sat in bed texting Niall. He asked if he could take me out tomorrow. I was surprised as no one ever asked me out before. I replied with a “Sure I’ll meet you at the chocolate café at 2pm.:p.” I sent him a goodnight message and turned my phone off and fell straight asleep.
I woke at 9:30am turned my phone on and climbed into the shower. I got dressed into my green strappy dress and a white cardigan with a pair of green vans and white frilly socks. I pulled my hair back but left it down and put my contacts in. I went down for breakfast. “Good morning love” my mum chirped. She was making an Irish fry up. After breakfast I went upstairs and cleaned my teeth. I brushed some lip gloss over my lips to give them a shine.
I decided to leave and walk to the café as it was a nice sunny afternoon. I arrived at the café with 5 minutes to spare. I walked in sat down at a table for two. A waitress came up to me and handed me a menu. I said to her “I’m just waiting for someone else to come”. She replied with “Ok love, when they come I’ll send down another menu”. “Thanks”, I smiled. At 2pm Niall walked in with his hood up and black shades covering his eyes. When I noticed him I called to him. The minute he heard me he looked over and smiled. He sat in front of me and greeted me with a kiss and a hug. We sat and talked. A waiter walked down with another menu like the waitress promised. We read true the menu and reading all the different chocolate drinks and treats. We the waitress came down for our order I said “Can I have a chocolate milk with cream and a white chocolate mousse with syrup and sprinkles” Niall asked for a “Hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream and a milk chocolate mousse”. The lady collected the menus and walked off with the order. Niall asked me a few questions about my family, my past and my future. I told him “I am the oldest child in my family and that I have a little 10 year old brother”. I told him about holidays I went on. And then my future. I told him “Next term was my last in collage and that I was hoping to open a café/bakery called the Icing House”. I asked him “What’s your family like (even though I met them), his past time in school and what’s it like to be famous”? He answered with “Well there’s my mam and dad who devoiced when I was small, my older brother Greg, his wife (my sister-in-law) Denies and their child Theo (my nephew). He said “I loved geography in school and I was always put outside the room for singing old Irish songs”. I laughed. And then he answered my third question. He answered with “It’s fun having 4 other boys around the same age as me with me all the time and that it’s like a big lad’s holiday. Its different feeling when where out walking around the shops and girls spot you and run up to you can be a little strange as we still are getting used to it”. Just as he finished our order came down. We ate and drank up our orders and went to pay. I reached for the bill and he just removed my hand and placed the money on the dish with a tip for the waitress. We left the café and walked around a bit. We came up to a poster which read: Friday night the 18th of June 2014, there will be a couple’s dance. Theme: Medieval. Time: 8pm, Admission: €10. Where: Town Hall.
Niall looked at it with a smile, then looked at me. I knew what he was going to say. “Haley would you like to go to the dance with me?” he asked. I looked at him with a puzzled look. Why would he pick me I’m just nobody? I thought. “Yes!” I said smiling. “Ok I’ll pick you up at 7:30pm” he replied. We walked home hand in hand and chatted away to each other. We arrived at my house and we said our goodbyes with a hug. I walked up to the door and watched him turn the corner to his dad’s road. I walked into my parents’ house to find my brother out the back playing football with my dad and my mam at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and flicking true a magazine. “I’m home” I said. “Oh how was your day” she said smiling. “Good” I replied. “Niall asked me to that dance tomorrow”. “We need to go to the costume shop in the village and get you the perfect princess dress” she said while grabbing her bag. “Christopher” my mam shouted at my dad. “Yes honey” he replied. “Haley and I are going out to the village for a while” she said. With that he waved through the window and we left.
At the costume shop.
We walked in and looked around. The costumes where sorted into groups. There was Halloween, scary, 80’s, famous people, jobs and history. We walked up to History and looked true the riles. I found cave men and war. Then I came across medieval. I looked at all the dresses. I grabbed a few and walked into the dressing rooms, while my mam waited outside. I first tried on a dress and walked out it was sky blue, V-necked and had sliver running true it. My mam looked at me and said it was too short. I went and changed into another one. It was purple, short sleeved, round neck and had gold buttons down the spine of it. This time it was uncomfortable. I tried the last one on which was emerald green with gold around the V-neck, the waist, the bottom had two strips and on the end of the sleeves which where long and pointed at the end and just hung at the wrist. My mam looked at me and said “that’s the one.” We paid the man and walked to a shoe shop. We went in and my mam spotted a pair of emerald green 1 inch. They were on sale down from €30 to €10. I bought them and headed home.
Later that night: 10pm
We all sat up and watched “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt.1”. Near the end of the movie my mam and David drifted off to sleep. When the movie ended I carried David to bed and tucked him in. I went into my room and undressed and dressed into my Pjs. I climbed into bed and turned my phone off and fell asleep.
I was walking down the usual street with my hand being held by the same boy and the same 4 other behind. I was getting closer I think to find out who it was holding my hand. Sometimes I can make out his voice it’s a deep country accent. His laugh is so adorable. I think I’m falling for the boy of my dreams. Literally!!! Then suddenly I could hear a beeping and next thing I knew I was waking up.
I woke to the sound of beeping. It was my phone. I checked it I had 3 New messages. It was 11am. I sat up and rubbed my eyes. I unlocked my phone I checked my messages. I had one from collage with a link to my new timetable, a message from Lexi asking how everything was going. I sent her a message saying “I was going to a dance with the cutest boy ever” and with a “you’ll never guess who?” And the last message from Niall. I opened it to find it saying “Good morning and I hope you have a costume picked out.” He said “Do you mind if my friend Louis could come with his girlfriend Eleanor?” I sent back a message saying “Sure I don’t mind.” And “Is it the Louis from the band?” I got out of bed and walked downstairs to have some brunch as it was nearly 12pm. I went down and had a bowel for fruit and a yogurt. There was a note from my mam saying
David had a dentist appointment and dad had to go to work. I need to go shopping after the dentist and dad won’t be home till 5pm. I’ll be home before you have to go on our date.
Love Mum xx David :p.
I love the way David signs his name. I ate my breakfast and went back upstairs. My phone went off again, I had a message from Lexi and one from Niall. I the one from Lexi, she replied with “Who?” “Is he cute?” I replied with “YES!” and “Niall Horan from One Direction is my DATE!” Then I read my other text from Niall. It read: “Great.” And “Yes that Louis”. I got into the shower and washed my hair. Then I got out and put on a pair of sweats and a crop top. I let my hair dry and I sat and watched a movie. Half way true the movie I fell asleep. I woke at 5pm to the sound of the front door opening. “Hello Haley” said my dad. “Hi dad” I yawned. “Mums still out shopping and she has David with her”. “Ok she sent me a text saying she’ll be home in 20 minutes. I went upstairs to do my hair and makeup. I plugged my straightener in to let it heat up. We it was hot enough I straightened it as my hair was naturally curled at the bottom. When my hair was done I grabbed my makeup bag. I searched for my foundation, blusher, baby pink lip stick and my emerald green eye shadow. I rubbed my foundation on, then brushed my light blusher on, applied lip stick and smoothed eye shadow on. I heard someone knocking on my bedroom door. I called “Come in”. The door opened and my mam walked in. “Hi” she said. “Need help with your dress” she asked. “Yes please” I replied. I took my dress out of my wardrobe and removed it from the hanger. I stepped into it and my mam zipped up the back. I turned around to see a beautiful girl looking at me in the mirror. “I got something for you” my mam said breaking the silence. She reviled a emerald green and gold coronet with a white vail hanging from the top. “Oh mum... it’s beautiful” I squealed. I hugged her. I placed it on my head and clipped it to my hair. Just as I was finished the doorbell rang. I looked at the clock it was 7:30pm. I walked down stairs in my emerald green shoes to find Niall standing at the door talking to my dad. He was dressed as Prince Charming. He had a white and gold suit with black dressy shoes. “Hi” he said with a huge smile on his face. “Haley would you mind if I could get a picture” my dad said. “Sure” I said smiling at Niall. “Cheese” we both said. “Can I jump in” asked David. “Ok” I said. He grabbed his Knights helmet, sword and shield. After the picture we left. “Louis and Eleanor are in the car waiting for us” Niall said. “Your chariot awaits, ma’am” joked Niall. He opened the door for me and I climbed into the black Range Rover. Niall sat beside me in the back. “Haley this is Louis (pointing to the one wearing the jokester costume) and his girlfriend Eleanor (dressed in a purple and ice blue queens costume with blue shoes and a fake crown)” introduced Niall. “Hello” I replied. “Hi Haley” greeted Louis. “Hello” smiled Eleanor. “Your costume is amazing”. “Thanks yours and Louis too” I said.
Town Hall- 8pm:
We walked into the Hall to find loads of people dressed up. There was knights, peasants, queens, kings, princesses and princes. We each paid our fee. “You know Haley, that colour on you goes nice with your skin colour” admired Niall. “Thanks, green is my favourite colour” I replied. “Mine too” smiled Niall. We sat at a table with Louis and Eleanor. We had some drinks, food and lots of laughs. Niall laugh is so cute, I thought.
Near the end of the dance we had best costumes competition. Silliest went to Louis. Most amazing went to Eleanor. And best couples costume went to Niall and me.
We went back to Niall’s dad’s place as he said he was going away for the weekend. Niall unlocked the door and let us in. Niall asked if anyone would like a drink. Louis said “beer”, Eleanor said “red wine” and I said a “cup of tea”. I helped Niall with the drinks. We sat down and watched the telly still in our costumes. Eleanor leaded into Louis chest and fell asleep. Niall leaded closer to me and placed his arm around me. I texted my mam saying I was staying in Niall’s dad’s house tonight. She replied with “ok”. Louis and Eleanor where fast asleep on the couch, Niall whispered to me saying “Haley White… I’m in Love with you. Would you do the honour of becoming my girl-friend”? I looked at him. Then said “Yes!” Niall held a ring out to me it was a gold ring twisted near the top with a pink diamond. On the inside was in craved “Once upon a dream……” He slipped it on my finger. “It’s beautiful Niall”. Then I leaded in a kissed him!
