I stared deeply into those warm, golden-brown eyes that had been in almost all my dreams as of lately. His eyes were fixed on me. He looked like an angel, a perfect specimen that was the source of my happiness. He was like the sun radiating life into me. When he reached for my hand, I let out a sigh of relief because I felt truly at peace. With a gentle touch, my world began to tremble.
At first the trembling didn't phase me, but it was when the trembling turned into violent treaties I shot up and yelled, "Earthquake!" I jumped out of my bed as quickly as I could do. I was making a break for the door when I tripped over my roommate. Both her and my best friend were in my dorm room laughing hysterically.
Being that I am not a morning person and that fall had hurt more than I anticipated, I glared at the two girls laughing and yelled, "What the hell you guys?"
My best friend that I had known since I was thirteen-years-old was the one to say something. "Oh my God Rian you should have seen your face. You looked scared shitless" Jordyn managed to say before bursting into another fit of laughter.
"You guys are fucking annoying" I mutter under my breath as I got off the ground.
My roommate, Ashley, had finally calmed herself down enough to say, "Damn, look at Miss Grumpy Pants. Rian you'd think you would be happier speaking what day it is."
I knew it wasn't my birthday, and I also knew it wasn't either one of their birthdays as well. I did know we had just finished our first year of college, but we celebrated that a couple days ago with a Pretty Little Liars marathon. I looked at both of my best friends trying to read their faces, but neither of them were giving me any hints at what might make today so special. Why is today so special?
"Okay. You got me; I am clueless" I admitted, staring at Ashley.
"Rian, how could you forget that today is the One Direction concert? We have been waiting for this day for months" Ashley said shocked.
I looked at Ashley and instantly remembered. "Oh shit that is today. How the hell did I forget that? I'll blame it on finals" I admitted, as my cheeks began to burn.
"I completely understand, Ri" Jordyn agreed.
I again looked at both my friends, but this time I was all to aware of the massive smile that was plastered on my face. One Direction was what we all initially bonded with and tonight we are going to see them live. I was on cloud nine.
"Guys we are going to see our favorite boy and tonight" I cheered.
"I'll get to hear Niall's beautiful accent in person" Ashley gushed.
"Shit, I'll get to see Louis Tomlinson's huge ass on stage tonight" Jordyn laughed.
I kept what I was thinking to myself, because it was something that I hadn't really shared with another person. I was excited to see the band that has gotten me through some of the hardest periods of my life. I wouldn't be half the person that I am today without their cheerful smiled and infectious laughter. One Direction was the only thing that would make me smile when all I wanted to do was break down and cry. I will forever thank them for changing my life and for saving my life. I kept this to myself because I could imagine how people would react to knowing that. I wasn't stupid for saying that One Direction saved my life. Music has that kind of power.
"I am going to see Liam James Payne tonight" I whispered to myself.
"Come on Rian we need to get ready! I want to get to PNC Arena fast" Ashley groaned.
"Chill Ash, North Carolina State is like less than ten minutes away from PNC" Jordyn complained.
"Come on you guys no bickering with one another, okay" I begged.
They both looked at me and nodded. We went to one of the cafeterias on campus to get a quick bite to eat before getting ready for the concert. I really couldn't eat. This was extremely common for me, because when I get really excited or nervous I lose my appetite. I couldn't be the only one who this happens to, but my friends looked at me like I was insane.
Especially when I pushed my food away and said, "I'm full". Ashley was the first on to go for my food as Jordyn looked at me suspiciously.
"What I literally cannot eat when I am nervous" I said defending myself. Jordyn smiled as she went back to drinking her smoothie. I looked down at my coffee and slowly sipped it.
When we got back to the dorm I looked at my closet, clueless what to wear. "Jordyn what are you wearing tonight" I asked seeing what everyone else is going to wear.
She pulled out a white sundress and a denim shirt. "This with a brown belt around both the dress and the denim shirt and some sandals" she said putting the clothes against her.
"That's cute. What about you Ash" I asked looking at her who was doing her make up.
"Hmm... I brought my black crop top, tan cardigan, and some high waisted jean shorts" Ashley stated as she continued to apply her mascara.
I looked around my closet for something to wear. I wanted to wear something that I knew I would feel somewhat confident in. I found a plain white chiffon tank top. I decided to pair it with a pair of my dark acid washed jean shorts, black Chuck Taylor's, and a black cardigan. I went to my restroom and quickly put it on.
"Guys, how does this look" I asked as I walked away from the restroom.
"That looks so cute on you Rian" Jordyn exclaimed.
"She's right" Ashley agreed.
I did my usual makeup, because I had never been one for doing anything wild with my it. Instead I preferred highlighting my favorite features, which were my eyes. Even if they we often covered by my thick glasses. They were a nice golden brown color. In the sun they reminded me of liquid gold. I looked at my friends who were extremely gorgeous. Take Jordyn she had bright blue eyes, beautiful and sleek blonde hair and perfect smile. Ashley originally had long brown hair , smoldering brown eyes, and a natural tan complexion.
As we left I looked in the mirror one last time staring at my wavy mess of hair that landed just past my shoulders. I loved my natural hair it reminded me of the ocean and it was a perk to not curling my hair everyday like some other girls do. I had recently chopped off a lot of my hair, because it was so hot and humid here. I actually preferred my hair short; not to mention it felt and looked a lot healthier now. I was closing the door as I stared at my one direction poster.
"I'll see you men tonight" I whispered to my poster.
