The drive to arena in which the concert was being held, seemed to drag on and on. On a normal day that drive would take no longer that 10 minutes, but today was an entirely different story. That normal 10 minute drive escalated to a thirty minute drive. Let's just say that neither of my friends were happy with the traffic delay.
"I told you we should have left earlier" Ashley jeered.
"How the hell were we supposed to know their would be traffic" Jordyn yelled.
Quite honestly I hate people yelling, and even more while I am driving. It was like I was walking on pins and needles.
"Why wouldn't there be traffic its One Direction for God sake's" Ashley cried out.
"Guys shut up, okay I can't deal with this. Not while I am driving through the worst traffic I have ever been in" I yelled.
Both of them instantly became quiet, and in my attempt to block out the awkwardness I began to play my One Direction playlist that soon we all were singing along to. Very horribly I might add. Had Simon Cowell heard my singing he'd say I sing like rubbish. Which is an understatement. I sing like a dying cat. It's equivalent to nails on a chalk board. Or at least I felt like I sang like this.
At the same time that we purchased our tickets Jordyn, Ashley, and I came to the decision that we should buy preferred park, and at this moment I was extremely thankful for that decision. The preferred parking was the closest to the stadium and I actually had a decent spot that I knew I wouldn't forget. As I got out of my car and looked at the arena all those memories of watching basketball games here flooded my mind. I could remember coming here with my mom and dad countless times, but now the jumbo-tron read: One Direction Take Me Home Tour.
"Guys! This is really happening" I shrieked as I locked up my Nissan Versa.
"Come on let's go" Jordyn shrieked, jumping up and down.
We practically ran into the arena and dodging as many people as possible. All of us were on mission to find our seats; we figured once we found them we would get some much needed merchandise. There wasn't anything that was stopping us… well that was until we saw the stage. It was huge, and so elaborate. I don't know what I was expecting, but this was definitely blowing my expectations out of the water. We were busting a mission to get to our seats.
"Holy crap" Ashley mouthed to me as I pulled out my phone to snap a quick picture.
Then we were off one more time on a quest to find out where in the hell our seat are. I knew were on the bottom level, ten rows back, and the first seats near the middle aisle. So once we got on the ground level we got to our seats instantly.
"These seats are without a doubt so worth all those hours of working in the book store" I said smiling huge at my two best friends.
"Yeah, they are awesome but to bad we can't have posters" Ashley said pouting.
"Shut up and just be happy you are here" Jordyn said gently pushing Ashley.
"I would but they made me throw away my hard work" Ashley continued.
"Yeah, but just think about this you won't have someone else's sign blocking you view" Jordyn added.
"This is true" Ashley acknowledged.
I stared at the stage and thought to myself I wonder what's going on back there. Probably something cool. They were probably joking around with one another or covering songs that they all currently liked.
I was walking back and forth in the halls waiting for one of the boys to come and take my mind off Dani, but it was hard seeing Louis and Eleanor oh and Zayn and Perrie now. Man this must be how Niall feels, and who the hell thought it would be awesome to write so many love songs or break up songs on our new album. I jumped out of my thoughts when I heard someone shut a door. Not to mention it looked like the 3rd album was going to be mainly break up songs, well at least the one I am writing. I have been in such a funk since Danielle left me. I feel like I am missing half of my heart.
"Liam what's up" Niall said staring at me questioningly.
"I have one question. How do you stay so happy and cheerful when you feel like your whole world is just falling apart" I asked staring at the ground.
Niall patted my back and asked, "Remember when we were children and we watched Disney Films".
I looked at him very confused. "Of course, but wha-" I began to say.
"Well in the Lion King, Timon and Pumba said you gotta put your past behind you. Hakuna Matata. I really believe that they were some kind of prophets. Sometimes we just have live for today, rather than be sullen about stuff you can't necessarily change." Niall said completely serious.
There was a part of me that wanted to laugh, but then the other half admitted Niall had a point. "Thanks man" I said smiling.
"Oh and at every show I look out at the crowd and ask myself is my future wife out there. Sometimes you have to keep you heart open mate" Niall said with his usual smile on his face.
"Nialler you're really wise mate" I said shocked.
"It's an Irish thing" Niall said shrugging is shoulders and laughed.
I playfully punched him. Then out came Louis and Harry "I bet you guys Zayn won't come out till the last moment" Louis said laughing.
"That's a bet I know I would lose" Harry said laughing.
Zayn did take the longest getting ready but then again he was a very good looking lad. Maybe we should take longer, but I don't have as much to do as Zayn. My hair is pretty short. Lou only takes a few minutes to put wax in my hair and make a little faux hawk. I liked my buzzed hair, because it was no hassle, but I was known for not keeping my hair the same for any long period of time. I liked that my hair was one aspect of my life I could completely be in charge of.
"Five minutes boys" Paul said walking past us.
"I think we are too damn old to still be called boys" Louis said sticking his tongue in Paul's direction. Louis hands on his hips. This lad has so much sass in him, it is quite funny to watch him sass others. But then I hate it when he sasses me.
"How the hell are you the oldest" Zayn asked laughing. I've asked that same question a million times Zayn. I really don't know how.
"I don't know" Louis said shrugging his shoulders.
"Did you guys hear what the 'special' thing we are doing tonight" Zayn asked us.
"Yeah I really like it" Harry said winking at me. I do have to admit what we're doing tonight is special and it's going to be a fun experience.
"Well lets go warm up the ol' vocal chords" Niall yelled leading us closer to the stage.
