Can Dreams Become A Reality?

"So you thought running away from me would help?"
"Yes! I don't want to get hurt Harry! I'm sick and tired of getting hurt and I don't want to get hurt by you."
"Why would you think you are going get hurt?"
"Because this is just how the cycle goes for Amber freaking Thompson."
"You don't know if you will get hurt if you don't try love."


1. Chapter 1

You would think by the time you are 18 you would mature and figure out what you want to do with your life and not keep dreaming for miracles to happen. I really wonder when it will hit me. I'm a senior in High School and still am in love with the boy band One Direction.

"Amber hello? Are you day dreaming again?" My mom asks.


"When will you grow up and get over that stupid boyband?"

"When I finally meet them."

"Oh and how do you plan on meeting them? We don't have a lot of money."

"I will think of something. But when I meet them and one of them likes me I'm going to come back and say I told you so."

"Oh Amber you have to actually be pretty for them to like you."

I looked away from my mom when she said that. This isn't the first time she has said something like that to me.

"I got to go."

"Where are you going? You have no friends."

"I'm going to visit the one friend I did have that died." I said running out of the house.

Once I got to my car I quickly sped off and went to the cemetery that he was buried at. I stopped at the row his grave was at and got out of the car. I took a deep breath and walked to his grave.

"Hey D! I wish you were here right now. I really need to talk to you. I miss you so much. You were way too young to leave this world. I have decided I will come to your grave every week and just talk to you and tell you how I'm doing. So this week not much has happened beside my mom calling me ugly and saying One Direction will never like me because I'm not pretty. I know what you are thinking already when I bring up that band but you know that they help me block out all my pain. Anyway ever since you left me here in this town it has been hell I was afraid to go to school because people hated me for no reason. But then the school year ended and I thought I would be free of pain and hurt... guess I was wrong. I'm sorry I didn't message you back my internet was down and I couldn't message you back until it was too late. When Maggie texted me saying you passed away I didn't believe it. I couldn't. I wanted you to fight it and come out of this but I guess it didn't work. I know you are in a better place now but now I'm left empty. I have no one I can talk to that fully understands me like you did. I really don't know what to do. You were like my brother and now you are gone. I miss you so much D." I said tears flowing down my face.

I sat at my best friends grave for a while just crying my eyes out. You never know how much you care for a person until they are gone. I wiped my eyes when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned around and found my best friends brother behind me. I broke down in tears again and wrapped my arms around his neck.

"I miss him so much."

"I know you do... He actually bought you something before he passed."

"What do you mean? D and I haven't talked for six months."

"Doesn't mean he never thought about you..."

I smiled at him.

"What did he get me?"

"Well he knew how much you like that one band... umm... One Direction yeah that's it."


"Well he knew you wanted to see them and meet them."

"Stop... He didn't... no he didn't where did he get the money for these?!?!"

"He was saving up. He wanted to surprise you with these..." D's brother said handing me two tickets front row with VIP passes.

"Oh my god! I can't believe he did this. He really shouldn't have." I said wiping my eyes again.

"He was going to going to come down here and surprise you."

"I wonder when he was going to tell me."

"When he came down here to get you is when he would have told you I'm guessing."

"Wow he put a lot of thought into this."

"Oh yes he did. It actually made me laugh a couple times just how much thought went into this."

Donte and I sat at his brother's grave and laughed.

"God it feels like yesterday that D and I were freshmen and in Science class together."

"Yeah I remember him telling me about you."

"As much as he got on my nerves I always enjoyed having him there. He was my rock. I could go to him about anything and he would always cheer me up and I would do the same for him."

"Yeah. I remember when he wanted to kill Kyle for all the things he did to you."

"I had to stop him so many times from going after him and anyone who talked smack about me."

"He cared about you so much."

"I know he did. He was like my brother. He would be all hard ass and act like he wanted to hurt someone but then if he saw me upset he would turn into this little puppy all sweet and innocent and making sure I was okay."

"Totally sounds like him."

"Wait how did you even know I was going to be here anyway?"

"Just a lucky guess... I actually came here to talk to him too..."

"Oh... here I'll let go so you can talk to him alone. Thanks for letting me talk to you."

"No problem and you better go to that concert. Even though he's not here doesn't mean you shouldn't go. Find someone to take his place and have fun. You deserve it."

"Thanks Donte and don't worry I will. I still can't believe he did this."

"Oh and one other thing Amber... It will only be you and whoever you decide to bring in the VIP lounge."

"What do you mean? There will be a couple other people there too."

"He bought all the VIP tickets."


"He didn't want the boys focused on other girls... he wanted them to focus on you."

"How did he do that? Where did he even get the money to do this??"

"I don't even know but dress nice... that night is all about you. I know he will be there in spirit."

"Thanks Donte." I smiled and hugged him tightly.

"No problem. Stay strong."

"I will. Okay I will let you talk to your brother alone. I will keep in contact with you."

"Sounds fantastic."

"See you around Donte."

"See you around Amber."

I look up at the sky and smiled.

"I love you D. Thank you for this it means a lot. I will see you again next week."

I walked over to my car and hopped into my car and put the tickets in the passenger seat and drove off. Since I didn't have much friends I ended up driving around for a while then ended up at a coffee shop. I hide the tickets in the glove department so no one saw them and got out of the car locking it before going in. Once the scent of cinnamon and fresh brewed coffee hit my senses I decided to take a seat before ordering something to drink. I pull out a note pad and a pencil and start writing. By the time I finish my letter I check the time and realize it's almost 6 o'clock at night.

"Shit! My mom is going to kill me!" I grumble to myself.

I pack up all my things and quickly got up and ran out of the coffee shop. When I got to my car I saw something on my windshield and groaned.

"TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS!" I yelled. "Great! Fantastic!"

I got into my car and drove home. Once I pulled into my subdivision I groaned and wished I didn't have to be home. How was I supposed to tell my mom I got a two hundred dollar ticket? I pull into my driveway. I shut off my car and reach in my glove department and grabbed the envelope that contained the concert tickets and got out of the car.

Once both my feet get inside the door everyone starts yelling at me.

"Where were you all day? You had me worried sick! I should take away your car for not telling me where you have been."

"I told you I was going to see D at his grave. While I was at his grave his brother Donte came by and we started talking and then handed me something."

"What did Donte hand you?"

"Something you would never give me."

"Excuse me?"

I plop down on the couch envelope in hand.

"Well what did Donte hand you?"

"Well while D was still alive he was going to surprise me and take me to a One Direction concert in Santa Clara... He had VIP tickets and everything."

"You're not going to that concert."

"Well that sucks because I am going because that is what my best friend would want me to do."

My mom sat there for a while thinking.

"I think Amber should go. Come on he bought her concert tickets not to mention VIP tickets that must have cost a lot of money... I think the least she should do is go for the sake of him spending that much money." My dad said.

I looked at my dad with a smile and my mom stood there thinking.

"Just let me do this one thing. Please D would be so upset if I didn't go. Plus I would be gone for the weekend."

"Fine you can go. But how do you plan on getting to Santa Clara?"

"We will buy her a plan ticket." My dad pipped up.

"Okay... when is the concert?"

"July 11th."

"It's in three weeks!"


My mom groans and got on the computer and booked my flight and then started looking at hotel rooms. I looked up at my dad and smiled.

"Okay everything is done for."

"Thank you."

I went to hug my mom but she walked away from me. I sighed and walked up to my room. I text Maggie and tell her about what D ended up doing for me. Right away my phone starts ringing.


"So he did what now?!?!"

"I guess D bought me VIP tickets before he died and was going to surprise me with it."

"Oh my god! That is crazy! He was a good friend to you I'm guessing."

"Obviously... If he bought me VIP tickets to my favorite band."

Maggie chuckled into the line.

"Who are you going to bring to the concert with you?"

"No one."

"Why not?"

"Because D will be there in spirit and I don't think it would be fair to give someone his seat if he will be there with me."

"Amber even if you bring someone he will still be there."

I sighed.

"I'll think about it. I'm going to head to bed I'm tired."

"Okay night... see you later."
