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."


4. Chapter 4

“Amber! Do you have everything all packed up? If you want to see D before you leave then we need to leave now!” My mom yelled out to me.

I ran down the stairs with my suitcase, purse and hopping while trying to put on my DC shoes on. Outfit:

“Amber why are you wearing a long sleeve shirt in the middle of summer?”

“Because planes can get cold so I want to be warm.”

“Okay…. Do you have everything you need?”

“Yeah I have all my clothes and stuff that I will need.”

“You got your medicine and toothbrush and toothpaste?”

“Yes. I have my hairbrush, shoes, clothes, makeup, toothbrush, toothpaste, medicine, hair products, hairstyling tools, perfume, charging cords, and my phone.”

“And that all fit in that bag?”


“I’m impressed but if you want to go see your friend we need to leave now.”

I nodded my head and grabbed my things and headed to my mom’s car.

“Do you have your necklace?”

I grabbed my neck to make sure I had it on.

“Yup I got it.”

My mom nodded her head and started the car and we drove off to D’s grave. Five minutes later we pulled up to the all too familiar spot. Chills ran down my spine. I looked at my mom and took a deep breath.

“Can I talk to him alone?”


I got out of the car and walked towards his grave. I stopped in front of his grave and looked down tears wheeling up in my eyes already.

“Hey D… Today is the big day! I’m excited to go but also wonder what it would be like if you were here still. I sit and wonder al the thing you had planned for this. I’m scared to be going alone but I didn’t feel right giving away your ticket just because you passed away. I know you will be watching the concert with me in spirit.” I sighed.

“Amber we need to leave so you don’t miss your flight.”

“Okay… Bye D I love you… If I don’t come by next week it’s because I extended my time there.” I said and looked at his grave. I grabbed my necklace and kissed it.

“Until next time.”

I walked over to my mom’s car and buckled myself in.

“Let’s go.”

My mom started up her car and drove off to the airport. About an hour later we pulled into O’Hare airport.

“I’m surprised it didn’t take longer.”

“I know… I thought there would be a lot of traffic guess your father picked a good time.”


“So you know what hotel you are staying at?”

“Yes I’m staying at the Hilton Santa Clara. It’s right by the stadium and by a Great America.”

“Okay… This flight should take you right to Mineta San Jose International Airport. So it shouldn’t be a bad drive to your hotel.”

“Are you wanting me to use Taxi’s?”

“No we have an Uber and anytime you need to use one call one and give them my debit card information.” She said handing me her debit card.


“Let’s go… We need to get you through security and everything.”

Without answering my mom handed me my suitcase and purse and started walking towards the entrance. Once I got my ticket I looked at my mom and smiled.

“Just remember the hotel room is under my name.”


“If you have any trouble with anything call me.”

“Got it.”

“Lastly… Please enjoy yourself… that’s what D would want.”

I nodded my head while my eyes swelled up with tears. She gave me a quick hug.

“You need to go if you want to make your flight.”

“Okay see you later.” I said walking towards security and all.

Once I made it through I found my gate and took a seat and waited for my flight to board. I sat on my phone for a while and finally our gate gets called to board the plane. Once I got to my seat on the plane I checked my phone. After twenty minutes of scrolling through Twitter a flight attendant asked me to shut off my phone. I nodded my head and shut off my phone. I was getting excited. In four hours I will be in California for the first time!

“Thank you for flying with American Airlines today we will be taking off shortly. Please fasten your seat belt and watch this safety video.”

I buckled my seatbelt and started watching the safety video. About ten minutes later the video was over and the plane was just taking off.

“Ready for take-off.”

Right when they said that my ears started to pop I quickly got into my purse and got out a piece of gum to help. When we were allowed to take out our electronics again I took out my phone and headphones. I turned the phone on and waiting for it to load up. As my lock screen picture appears on my screen I unlock my phone and went to my music. I went to a premade playlist and hit shuffle. The song that came up was moments by One Direction. I smiled and shut my eyes to try and make the flight go faster.

*3 and an half hours later *

I felt a tap on my shoulder and I opened my eyes to see a flight attendant in my face.

“Sorry to bother you ma’am but we will be landing soon and we need you to shut off all electronics now please.”

“Oh sure.” I said taking my headphones off and shutting off my phone.

Once it was fully off I put it in my purse and tried to fall back asleep. Sadly I didn’t fall back asleep because I was too excited to be going to California.

A half hour later the plane finally landed. I unbuckled the seatbelt and I grabbed my purse and quickly grabbed my suitcase from the top and started heading off the plane. Once I was in the airport fully I walked to the exit of the airport and hoped to see and Uber car out there. After searching for a couple minutes I found my Uber.

“Where do you need to go?”

“Could you give me a ride to the Hilton in Santa Clara… It’s right by Levi’s Stadium.”

“Sure thing.”

After I told the driver where to go we were off. Twenty minute later I look out the window and I saw the stadium.


“Nice isn’t it.”

“Yeah it’s amazing.”

“You here for the One Direction Concert?”

“Yeah… My friend bought me tickets and was going to surprise me but almost a month ago he died.”

“I’m so sorry to hear that. You will have a blast.”


“And here you are.” The driver stopped in front of the Hilton Hotel.

Right when I got out I saw a huge group of girls standing around waiting for someone. I walked into the hotel and went to go check in.

“Hello how may I help you?”

“I have a reservation under Lori Thompson.”

“Let me check.” The women behind the desk typed in my mom’s name and smiled at me.

“Yes. Here it is.”

I let out a breath I didn’t know I was holding.

“You are in room 307.” She said handing me my key.

“Thank you… When is the check-out date?”

“Check-out is Monday at noon.”

“Okay thank you… One question why are there a group of girls outside the hotel?”

“One Direction is staying here.”

“Oh okay thank you.”

I smiled at the women and walked off to go find my room. I found my room and decided to stay at the hotel and just swim since it was late. I quickly called my mom to tell her I am at the hotel room. After a couple rings my mom answered.


“Hey mom.”

“Hi… you got to the hotel?”

“Yeah… You will never believe who is staying here.”


“One Direction.”

“That’s exciting.”

“Yeah only fear is that I won’t get sleep because of them screaming.”

“If it’s too bad just put in your headphones and listen to music.”

“Okay well I’m going to go… I’m going to swim for a little bit.”

“Okay have fun and keep in touch with me.”

“Okay bye.” I said hanging up the phone.

I opened my suitcase up and put my clothes on hangers so it doesn’t wrinkle. Once both my dresses were hung up I decided to put on my black bikini and head down to the pool. I put on a baggie shirt and some yoga shorts and kept my hair in a messy bun.


As I grab my room key and head down to the pool I hope that no one else was there. Lucky for me when I got to the pool no one was there so I could do whatever I wanted. I took off my baggie shirt and yoga shorts. I walked over to the pool to see how cold it was. I dipped my foot in and it wasn’t bad. I go to the stairs and walk in. I started to do some laps in the pool when I decided to get out because a bunch of little kids came running in. I grabbed a towel and started to dry off.

Finally I was dry and walked back up to my room. Once I was back in my hotel room I changed into a sports bra and some spanxs and decided to fall asleep.

“Goodnight D… I wish you were here with me.”
