I wake up, the outside still dark. I look at my phone to check the time, 7 o’clock. That's the first time I've woken up this early; I usually take the afternoon shifts at Starbucks as I like to sleep late, but I still manage to be late for work.
Maybe I could try not being late for a change, today is the day, I'm up early anyways, that means I have extra time to get ready, and hopefully not be late this time.
I check my inbox for any messages, but there's nothing.. Michael still hasn’t answered and I texted him over a month ago. I hope it's because he's busy, and not because he's doing it on purpose.
Michael is an old friend of mine, but I haven't really heard much from him, since his band suddenly took off to go on tour. We met a long time ago, and after he took off with his band, mom decided we were moving away from Australia and to the UK.
Michael doesn't know that I moved. But I can tell you this, the reason we moved was because mom met George, the big asshole.
I'm lazy all morning until it's time for me to go to work.
Work proceeds as normal. I'm happy with what I do, and I enjoy meeting the people coming to Starbucks.
The rest of the day is normal as usual. I come home put up my feet and watch a movie. I decide to watch Sound of Music; it's always a classic, I've loved that movie ever since I first saw it. My eyelids start to feel heavy and soon I'm fast asleep.
~ two weeks later ~
I'm walking home from work as my car has failed me. I'm tired and sore and I just want to go home. Further up the street there seems to be a lot of fuss about something.
I see two big buses and a lot of people in front of them. I make my way through the crowd, I'm being squashed a few times and pushed around in circles. ‘Niall!’ Someone yells and grabs my arm, dragging me into one of the buses.
The door closes behind me. ‘Hey… You're not..’ The person turns around, and to my surprise it's Harry Styles. ‘One of the typical models you surround yourself with?’ I sneer at him
‘Sorry I thought you were Niall..’ He says ‘Niall? I'm not even a boy and blonde, how could you possibly think that?’ My face turns as red as my hair. ‘I must have grabbed the wrong arm’ he smirks ‘But you're much prettier than Niall’
‘Gee thanks’ I say sarcastically ‘Whats happening? Who's this Harry?’ I recognize Louis Tomlinson rushing towards us. ‘I thought I grabbed Niall’s arm.. Instead I accidentally grabbed her arm’ Harry looks around confused ‘Where’s Niall?’
‘Excuse me, what am I still doing here? It was obviously a mistake anyways, so please just let me out!’ I try to open the door but it's locked. ‘We can't let you out, the bus is moving.. You'll have to stay here until we get to our next destination, which we will be at in three days’ Louis say concerned.
Oh my god, I couldn't get out of here, I had to wait three days? Suddenly a phone starts ringing ‘Niall, where are you?’ I hear another voice in the back of the bus ‘Guys, Niall is with 5sos in their bus!’ A guy with dark hair appears from behind a door, he looks familiar.. Now I know, it's Zayn Malik ‘Thank god!’ Harry blurts
‘Who is this?’ Zayn asks looking at Harry ‘Sorry, I don't know her, I accidentally grabbed her instead of Niall. But she's quite beautiful isn't she?’ Harry looks at me widening his smile
‘Okay, since I'm going to be here three days with you, I might as well introduce myself’ I look up as the last guy appears and obviously looks like a question mark when seeing me. That must be Liam Payne.
How come I know their names? Well most customers I talk to are young girls and they always show me pictures of One Direction, and talk about them a lot, so that's how I know.
‘Yeah please do’ Harry smirks mischievously, I glare at him angrily ‘Well, I'm Reagan James, 19 years old, originally from Australia, but moved to the UK a year ago. I work at Starbucks and I like rock music and sleeping late’.
‘Nice to meet you Reagan.. The guys we tour with are from Australia, maybe you know them? 5sos’ Liam smiles and gives me a hug. That was unexpected. ‘5sos, doesn't ring a bell’ I say, turning my brain to remember the name.
‘I’m Liam, this is Harry, Louis and Zayn. And yeah.. You’ll meet Niall when we arrive at the next destination’ Liam says softly. ‘Well nice to meet you all.. I've heard your music a couple of times, it's good’ I drop my purse next to me.
‘Thanks, would you like an autograph?’ Harry stares at me with an evil grin ‘Who do you think I am? You’re biggest fan? Believe me I'm not! And I don't really want your autograph, no offense, I just want to go home’
Why does he have to be like that? Not everyone is a fan, I don't have to like them or their music. I'm not saying I hate them, I just like other music better. ‘I had to ask.. A guy can dream can't he?’ Harry says.
‘Hey, you look tired.. You want to lie down?’ Zayn takes my purse and puts it on the couch in the corner of the bus. ‘I’ve been working all day, I just got off work, so I still have my work clothes on.. Would it be too much to ask for a shower?’ I nervously play with my hair.
‘No definitely not, since we're the ones who got you into this mess the least we can do is make it as comfortable for you as possible. We actually have some clean women clothes in a drawer, let me just get it for you’ Zayn is being extremely kind, which is nice because Harry is an ass, and I don't really want to be here.
‘Thanks Zayn I appreciate it!’ I say gratefully ‘Come on, I'll show you where the bathroom is, and Zayn will bring you a towel and clothes’ Liam drags me through a door, behind the door is kind of a hallway where bunks are placed on each side and in two levels.
After that we get to a room where another couch is placed, with a tv and what looks like an Xbox, a wii and a playstation. Liam then opens another door that leads to a closet, where I assume all of their clothes are.
In the closet there's a door, Liam opens it and it reveals a bathroom, finally! I thought we were supposed to walk through the bus for hours before finding a bathroom.
‘Thanks Liam’ I smile taking off my jacket. ‘You’re welcome, it's the least we can do.. Oh here's Zayn with your clothes and towel. Have a nice shower, I'll go back to the other guys’ Liam walks back out of the closet, letting Zayn in. ‘Here you go, I'm sorry for the inconvenience’ Zayn hands me the things and trails off. ‘Thanks..’ I whisper to myself.
I enter the bathroom; it's quite big, as we're actually on a bus and I thought it would be tiny as hell. I lock the door taking off my shirt. I take off the rest of my clothes. I turn on the shower and put my body under the water. It's nice, deliciously warm and calming.
