Secrets, Lies and a Love in Disguise

Persephone has a normal, quite boring life. She goes to a good school, has some great friends and all the usual problems. But when she ends up in a hotel in a foreign country with One Direction, who she is secretly in love with, her life springs from boring to wild. At first Persephone loves her new life, but as things get more complicated her feelings begin to change...


7. Relax

  When the door was unlocked again I jumped violently. I didn’t know how long id been lying there for. My family walked unknowingly into the room and told me to get my ski stuff ready. We were going to go skiing at a resort near to our hotel every morning and come back to the hotel at lunch time, so we could do whatever we wanted in the afternoon. Most people ski for the whole day, but my family like cramming as much as they can into the day, even if that included lounging about.

  On the way down to catch the bus I was alert for familiar voices. I really wanted to see the boys again, but I didn’t think could face it. I mean, I really embarrassed myself in front of harry this morning. But I reminded myself that they are just normal people, they are just famous, no need to treat them differently.

  The skiing helped take my mind off of things. It was relaxing and the mountains looked beautiful. It reminded me that I was taking this far too seriously. I was on holiday in a beautiful place and I was living steps away from my favourite people on the earth. And what did harry say this morning? What did he say? I ran the conversation in my head and suddenly became excited. Harry had said ‘See you around’. See you around. He talked to me like I was a normal girl. And he’d noticed me. He’d complemented me. Suddenly a whole new idea opened up. I could leave here being not just a fan, a friend. And for once I felt more confident about bumping into the boys.

  We’d finished our morning skiing and had stopped off in the little town for a meal. Once we were back at the hotel we all had a chance to do what we want. My mum went to the spa, my dad and Bryony went swimming and I pretended to have a nap. However once they had all gone, I got up, left the room and began to walk around the hotel. The thing I loved about this hotel is it’s not just rooms. There are ballrooms, halls and library’s to explore. It’s like a real castle. So I began to let my feet carry me randomly round the place. I wasn’t bothered about getting lost, I had plenty of time.

  I walked for about an hour and I finally reached a huge hall filled with comfy chairs and desks. There were a few older people scattered about the room, so I plopped down in soft looking one in the middle of the room. I relaxed and looked out the huge windows, staring at the glowing mountains in the distance. Suddenly, a new group of people entered the room. I ignored them at first, I was too comfortable, but then my name was called out. ‘Hey Seph, it’s me!’ I looked up to see a smiling Harry striding over to me. I felt my face automatically tense, but I refused to act the way I did in the lift.

  ‘Hey.’ I said a bit too stiffly; I forced myself to say more. ‘What’s up?’

  ‘Me and the boys where just chilling. You should come meet them. Hey guys, come here!’ Over his shoulder I saw four more boys smile and begin to walk to Harry. I instantly realised I was alone with One Direction. I was getting a bit clammy, but I willed myself to act natural. ‘This is Seph, Seph this is Lou-‘

  ‘I know who you are,’ I interrupted a little too abruptly. I saw a look of concern cross the other boys faces. They thought I could be another fan out to ruin their day, so I tried to relax them. ‘Having a break are you?’ Harry beamed at me.

  ‘We are in fact, we were just on our way to get a coffee, want to come?’
