Liam Payne. Niall Horan. Zayn Malik. Louis Tomlinson. Harry Styles. I stared at the door with a sign that read all those names I loved so much. I was on cloud nine; without a doubt. Liam singing to me was the best day of my life.
"I can't believe you got to go on stage" Ashley said smiling at me.
"Yeah well she always gets what she wants" Jordyn whispered. I looked at her shocked.
Ashley rolled her eyes, "Jealously looks great on you"
I smirked a bit, granite I have known Jordyn since I was young but I was closer to Ashley."I thought you didn't like Liam" I added nudging her.
"No, but you got to be on stage with freaking ONE DIRECTION" Jordyn ranted.
"Well hey you get to at least get to meet One Direction! A lot of people would kill just to meet the boys" Ashley groaned.
"All right guys let's just be happy" I smiled at both my friends.
What Jordyn said wouldn’t stop echoing in my head. She really thinks I get everything I want? How long has she thought this? Well she shouldn't be to jealous I pretty much came off like an idiot on stage... actually more like a dork. I like your face. God I am an idiot. I am usual pretty good at keeping my true feelings to myself; I am very reserved. SHIT! How am I going to be able to talk... hell even look him in the eyes?
As Paul and some of the other security personnel came to a stop I knew we were here. I guess I can hide behind my friends so I don't have to see Liam. That would most definitely work; and I am pretty good and going unnoticed.
"Now ladies you did extremely well onstage earlier, please don't make us wish we never tried this experience" Paul scolded just outside the door. "
We won't" some of the younger girls said together.
Then he opened the doors. The younger girls ran into the room yelling, "OMG One Direction".
I was stunned by the sound of the younger girls screaming, and some of them pushed themselves past me. I really didn't care that I was the last one to enter after my friends. When I looked over at the girls they we being swarmed by the others.
"Should we go over there" Ashley asked.
I shrugged my shoulders, "I have no clue".
I looked at both my my best friends who were frozen in they guys stare. They were in total awe. I quickly glanced over to Liam who was scanning the room for someone.
"I wonder if Liam is looking for you" Ashley whispered in my ear.
"I sure hope not" I blurted out. Ashley look at me confused.
"I'll tell you later" I promised.
I looked over at Liam and our eyes meet. My heart dropped. Liam walked up to me, "Hello love".
God his British accent made melt. "Um hi" I said blushing. His beautiful brown eyes, athletic build, newly buzzed hair that I truly liked, and that utterly heart-warming smile.
"Hey Liam. I'm Jordyn" Jordyn greeted herself confidently.
"Nice to meet you Jordyn" Liam smiled politely.
"The pleasure is all mine" Jordyn said bashing her eyelashes. Nice.
The fact that Jordyn was trying so hard get Liam's attention was bothering me. I was green with jealousy. What friend does that? How dare her!
"Hi I am Ashley" Ashley said shaking Liam's hand.
"Nice to meet you" Liam said looking at Ashley then looking at me. I could see him staring at me from the corner of my eye. I instantly looked down to my feet.
"Hello Rian. I just want to let you know that Liam really fancies you, love. Since I know he won't ask I will. Have you got a boy-." Louis said wrapping his arm around my shoulder."
Louis shut up!" Liam yelped turning bright red. Oh my word, Liam is so cute we he is embarrassed.
"Um no I am as single as a Pringle, Louis" I said smiling at him.
"Well isn't that great, Liam" Louis laughed, nudging Liam.
"He wouldn't shut up about you after the concert" Harry said joining in on the conversation. "Oh my gosh" Liam sighed.
After a while Ashley and Jordyn were talking to Niall and Harry; which left me by myself with Liam. Jordyn every now and then would stare at Liam and I.
"So Ri... wait can I call you Ri" Liam asked his hands in his pockets and his cheeks flushed.
"Sure Liam you can call me Ri" I said smiling at him. Most likely I was smiling like an idiot. I tend to do that around guys I like.
Come on Liam, I scolded myself. I wouldn't consider myself too lucky in the girl department. Danielle cheated on me and I was once rejected by the same girl twenty-two times. Rian seemed different. She was as sweet as a chocolate. Those big golden eyes framed by those thick glasses. She was a beautiful, quirky, laid back girl that I would be proud to claim as mine. First things first is that I need to get to know her better.
"So... How old are you" I asked praying she was over eighteen.
"I am nineteen years old" She answered smiling in my direction. Rian had dark brown, wavy hair. She was rather short; I really liked this.
"Nice. Do you go to school" I asked smiling at her.
"Yeah I go to the local university. I am majoring in English and literature " she answered, her cheeks such a lovely shade of pink.
"That's great" I said trying to make her feel not as shy.
About an hour had passed before Paul came in and told everyone to get their last goodbyes in for the night so we could go back to our hotel room. After a couple years of touring I knew this meant we were free to go out and explore the city. Rian was across the room talking to Louis and Niall, but after that news her eyes locked with mine.
"Bye Liam!" one of the concert winners yelled throwing herself into me.
"Bye! It was amazing to meet you" I said squeezing her.
After I got stampeded by other girls I had finally made it to Rian. "Bye Zayn" Rian said waving to Zayn.
"Bye Rian" Zayn said smiling. I was standing behind her; and she quickly turned right into my chest.
"Oh my gosh, Liam I am so sorry" Rian gushed as her cheeks turned bright red.
"Don't be love" I said looking her in the eye as I held her.
"Um ok-ay" Rian stuttered escaping from my embrace.
"Did you drive here" I asked.
"Um yeah. What does that have to do with anything" Rian asked, confusion written all over her face.
"Well I was wondering if you'd like to show the boys and I some things to do here in Raleigh. If your friends don't want to you can take them back to school and we will follow you." I asked giving her the most irresistible puppy dog face ever imaginable
I watched her contemplate the idea in her head. She looked up at me and smiled, "Sure Liam. Let me go ask them". I hugged her tightly and smiled. She left to go ask her friends and then I was surrounded by the guys. Oh God.
"Hey lover boy" Louis mocked.
"How many times do I have to tell you to shut up tonight Louis" I scolded him, pushing him softly.
"You better have invited Rian to hang out some more tonight" Niall said sincerely.
"I did" I revealed to the guys. I got a couple of high fives from Harry and Niall.
