Minor Complications (Part 1)

Instead of going to parties, 17 year old Emma would prefer to stay home and watch television, even though her best friend Tiffany begs her to leave the house once in a while. One night at a party, Tiffany meets the members of One Direction, and falls head over heels for Liam. Unfortunately, so does Emma. They become close friends with Zayn, Harrry, and Louis, who try to stay out of the drama. And then there is Niall, who constantly fights for Emma's attention. Complicated. This is part of my Complications trilogy.

This is a story for the One Direction contest. :)
It used to be called Little Complications, but when I decided to make it a trilogy I had to change the name.


1. The Lame Party

*Emma's point of View*

My phone rings, and I glance down into my hands. It's Tiffany.

I hesitate. She's supposed to be at a party somewhere. She's probably just calling to tell me how much fun it is and that I should go. I've told her a million times that I hate parties.  They are just disasters waiting to happen. 

I decide to answer. She's my best friend. It could be an emergency. 


"Emma! You have to get down here right now!" she screams into the phone. I knew it.

"I already told you! I won't know anyone there! You know I hate parties!"

"This one  is different." she whispers urgently.

"How is this one different than any of the rest?" I almost scream. Why can't she understand that I am happy in sweats, with my butt firmly planted on my bed. 

"One Direction is here." she says so quietly I can barely hear her. 

My heart stops. I glance at the poster on my wall. It's their Up All Night album cover.  She's trying to trick me.

"I can't believe you would stoop so low as to try to trick me and tell me that One Direction is there, at some lame house party with a bunch of high schoolers. It's ridiculous and impossible." I am so angry, because for a second, I believed her.

"First of all, it's not a lame house party. It's a bonfire at the beach. Second of all, I'm not tricking you. And third of all, it's not impossible. You even told me there was a rumor they were here on vacation."

It's true, there is a rumor. And they do love going to the beach. It's possible....

"Prove it." 

"I already sent you a picture."

I take my phone away from my ear and check my messages. The picture is dark but I see 5 guys, 3 brunettes, 1 blonde, and 1 boy with black hair, standing on the beach together, in bathing suits, their backs turned. 

"That could be anyone."

"It's them! I promise! Everyone is staring at them but no one is going up to them. Hurry up! We can make a move!"

"Well maybe they just look like them and they aren't." 

"Please, please, please! I don't want them to leave without me talking to them first! And I am being an amazing friend waiting for you. So get dressed and come to our favorite beach!" She then hangs up.

I look at the poster on my wall again. I stare at Liam. He is so cute. I have to go. It could be them. I take my dark, brown hair out of my ponytail and watch it fall onto my shoulders. Eh, it's fine. I throw on some jeans and my favorite tank top. It has a nude bottom layer with black lace on top. I grab my jacket and flip flops. I put some eyeliner and mascara on quickly. I look in the mirror and realize how different I look from 5 minutes ago. I can be girly when I want to be. 

I grab my keys and yell to my parents that I was going out with Tiffany. I run to my car in the front of the house. The 10 minute car ride feels like forever. I park my car and start to wander along the beach, looking for Tiffany. She's not that hard to find. She has bright blonde hair, and is probably the skinniest person on this beach.

But that's not the main reason I find her. The main reason is because she is the loudest one here. I hear her distinct, pretty laugh and look in her direction. She's cracking up, head thrown back in a group of guys. Her hand is touching the tallest guy's arm. I notice him instantly. It's one of the guys who has been hanging on my bedroom wall for months. The one guy I really truly notice in the poster. It's Liam Payne. 

I guess she couldn't wait.
