5. Chapter 5.
Niall and I have grown a stronger relationship as a couple. I have only 1 week left of collage then I’m free to make up my life’s goal business. I’ve been doing practise exams on Niall and tests my food. Which is a good thing as he loves food so much. I’ve an exam tomorrow and I’m really nervous. I have to either cook or bake a delicious meal or dessert I know. I’m going to bake a Crème Burley. I’ve practice on Niall and he said I’m going to Ace the exam.
Morning of exam.
I woke early due to me being too nervous. I got up and climbed into the shower. I started singing my heart out as that’s what I do when I’m nervous to calm myself down. When I was finished I climbed out dried myself and went back into the bed room. Niall was awake. “Morning, love” I said. “Your voice……… it’s beautiful” he smiled. “What no nit’s not” I said. “It is” he augured back. “You didn’t tell me you could sing” said. “There’s a few thing you don’t know about me” I grinned. “Like what?” asked Niall “Well I can play a bit of the guitar and I auditioned for the X- factor but I was turned down. I wasn’t shown on the telly” I said. Niall looked at me. “You auditioned for X-factor” he said. “Yea” I replied. “What year?” he asked. “2010. Why?” I asked. “I auditioned that year too!” He said. “Well at least one of us got true” I smiled. I got dressed into jeans, a vest top with a light jumper on top and open toe heeled shoes. I put my hair into a bun and placed my glasses on my face. I walked into the kitchen and pulled out a frying pan. I made pancakes and sat down to eat them. I poured raspberry syrup on top with some blueberries. I had glass of apple juice too. After breakfast I went back into the bedroom and into the bathroom. I brushed my teeth. I walked back into the bedroom. Niall wasn’t there but his pjs where on the bed. I grabbed my messenger bag with “Bakery Princess” written on it and placed my pencil case, my journal and the Crème Burley recipe into the bag too. I went into the kitchen. Niall was eating his pancakes. I went up to the fridge and opened it. I took out a bottle of water and place it into my bag. Then I grabbed and apple and placed it into my bag too. I turned my phone on to find texts from my family saying “Good Luck”. I grabbed my keys and went to walk out the door. “Wait… Haley” called Niall. “Can I drive you there and pick you up after your exam?” “Sure” I replied. We walked out the door hand in hand. I climbed into the passenger seat of my car and Niall climbed into the driver’s seat. “I’ve a present for you!” I said to Niall. I handed him the spare keys to my house and to my car. There was 2 key rings on the keys. One said “Mine Forever” in a heart. And the other was a picture of us together in a round shaped key ring with “My dream has come true” written on it. “Thanks love” smiled Niall. “You’re welcome, I’ve one too” I replied. We arrived at my collage and kissed Niall goodbye. He replied with “Good Luck my Bakery Angel”. I walked into the collage hall and went to the exam kitchens. I was 10am, and the exam is at 11am. I sat outside the kitchen and took out the recipe. After 45mins of examining the recipe the examiner came up and let us into the kitchen. I placed the recipe into my bag and followed the others in my group into the kitchen. We went to our stations and made sure we had everything we needed. It was 10:58am. The examiner went around checking each station. At 10:59am the examiner said “you may begin……… Now!” And it struck 11:00am.
After the exam:
I was 1pm by the time the exam finished. I left the room after cleaning up. I walked to the front of the school and to the car park. I walked a bit to the end of the car park and then took my phone out. I unlocked it and went to call Niall. I clicked on Niall’s name and pressed call. It rang…rang…rang then someone answered it. “Hello?” asked Niall. “Niall its Haley my exam is over I’ll meet you at the shopping centre if you want to meet me there” I said. “Ok I’ll be there in 20minutes”. Then the call ended. I started walking towards the shops and arrived there the minute Niall did. “Haley!” he shouted. I noticed him and ran for a hug. We headed for the food court. “What you want?” I asked. “Burger King!” he shouted. He grabbed my arm a pulled me to the restaurant like he hadn’t been fed in weeks. We went up to the counter and ordered. “Can I have a large burger with curly fry’s and a 7-Up please?” asked Niall. And can I have I started “Chicken nuggets and chips with a Fanta zero please?” “That will be €15.89 please” said the waitress. I reached for my purse and handed the money before Niall could. “Hey I was going to pay” he pouted. “But you paid the time we went to the café in Mullingar” I said. We collected our food and sat down at a table. A little girl around 6 with brown eyes and long brown hair spotted Niall. Her mother with her came up to Niall. “Hi sweetie” smiled Niall. “Ca…n I have a picture?” she asked nervously. “Yes sure” smiled Niall. “If you want you can join in the picture” I said to the mother. “Thanks” she smiled. She handed me her phone and I said “CHEESE!” and clicked the button. “Thank you” said the little girl. “You’re welcome” said Niall, while giving her a hug. “Bye bye Niall” she sang. I looked at him for a while. “What?” he asked. “You’re just so good with kids” I giggled. “Well it’s good practice for the future” he replied. After lunch we wandered around shops. I bought some new shoes and dresses and Niall got more Snap Back caps and an American Basketball top with Miami Heat on the front and L.James on the back. We walked home and opened the door. “I’m going to see how Lexi got on in her beauty exam today, you want to come?” I asked. “Ok” he said. We went over to Lexi’s door and knocked. She answered the door. “Hello” she sang. We followed her into a hall painted lilac with family pictures hung on the walls. “So how did your exam go?” I asked. “Fabulous” she smiled. “Yours?” “Fine” I replied. After a few hours with her we left for bed.
