A car pulled into the driveway of the small house on cork street. A young man alone gets out of the car and walks up to the door. He is dressed nicely in traveling clothes, and his right hand he holds a duffle bag. He knocks once and then enters, dropping his backpack and baggage on the floor. He looks around the living room and entryway taking notice of the new decor and furniture. Going to the staircase, he walks up to the second floor and into the first room on the right.
A girl of eighteen is listening to music and packing. She takes no notice of the figure standing in her doorway. The young man walks up behind her and wraps his arms around her. She jerks with fright and wheels around with a look of shock on her face.
"Patrick!" She yells in surprise, as she returns his hug. "When did you get home?"
"This morning, around seven." He says.
"Why didn't you call?" She says trying to look angry at her older brother while giving him a playful punch.
"I wanted to surprise you. Why are you packing? Are you going somewhere?"
"Obviously I'm going somewhere if I'm packing duh!" She laughs giving him a stupid look. "I'm leaving to go on tour," Bella answered his question. "Didn't dad tell you anything?" She asks her big brother.
"Tell me what Bel?"
Just then a blonde haired guy walked into her room. "Bella, we need to leave for the airport. Harry is in the car waiting and Liam and Louis are already there. How much longer before your ready?" He asks.
"I'm almost done babe. By the way," Bella looks to her brother. "Patrick, this is Niall, my fiancé. Niall darling, this is my brother Patrick."
"You didn't tell me you were engaged!" Patrick says walking over to Niall and shaking his hand.
"Well, I thought dad told you!" Bella said trying to defend herself.
"How could he tell me when I have been in Africa for the last nineteen months?" Patrick asks sarcastically.
"Okay," she said with a sigh. "I'm in a band, Niall and I have been together for a little over a year and we are engaged. Look, I wish I could stay and visit, but I do have to go." She said closing her suit case and setting it on the floor. "By the way, I'm flying every one into London to see us perform at the O2 Arena."
"Wow! Your playing there?"
"Yeah, don't tell me you still haven't figured out what band I am in?"
"No I haven't."
"Seriously? Niall, Harry, Liam, Louis? One Direction?"
"Are you serious?"
"Yes, one hundred percent. I have to go, I love you bro." Bella said walking up to him and planting a kiss on his check. Niall came and took her baggage and began rolling it down stairs. She followed right behind him. Once she got to the door, she said good bye to her brother one more time before leaving for the car.
Niall and Bella got in the back seat, and Harry drove off in the direction of the airport. They were about to start their biggest tour ever.
