COMPLETED. Alira Somers. A 19 year old girl who isn't that much of a fan of One Direction. But her best friend, Jenna, won tickets to a little 'promo' about One Direction. Little did they know, One Direction was performing. That's where they lay eyes on both of them for the first time. That's when Alira changed her views on them. That's when 2/5 will fall for her. That's when all hell breaks loose in her life.

**Blurb is misleading, it isn't as good as I thought it would be. Personally, it's not my best but by all means, if you want to read it go ahead! Just let me warn you, it's not as good as the blurb says.


1. Chapter 1: longing stares


Chapter 1: longing stares.


‘Ali, if we’re late, I swear to god i will burn you alive!” my best friend yelled at me from across the house.

‘I will hurry if you tell me where my new shoes are!’ I yelled back. I was frantically searching for my brand new shoes that would totally look good with what I’m wearing. And freaking Jenna tried them on yesterday and never gave it back to me. 

‘It’s in my room!’ she hollered back. I sprinted up the stairs into her room and threw everything everywhere looking for them.

‘Alira Jane Somers, stop throwing my stuff!’ Jenna screamed in the doorway.

‘You told me to hurry, so I’m hurrying.’ I said as i threw one of her favourite tops to the ground.

‘They’re right there, dickhead!’ she screamed, pointing to the far corner of the room.

‘You could’ve told me that when you got here.’

‘Whatever. Just put your shoes on in the car. We can’t miss this one direction promo.’ she told me, already running out the door. I rolled my eyes at how much of an idiot she is about being crazy about these boys. Like, honestly, yeah they’re hot and yes they can sing. But like, you don’t know them personally, you can’t exactly be ‘in love with them’.

I ran out of the house, bare-footed and only remembering to lock it last minute. The car beeped three times and I saw Jenna shaking her head like she does whenever she’s impatient.

‘Calm your tits’ I muttered under my breath.

‘I swear, you take six million years whenever you really have to hurry.’ 

‘It’s at 1 o’clock. And it’s like 12.’ I retorted.

‘I wanna be there early before it gets full.’

‘It’s invite only, Jen, we’ll make it.’ I said, with a sigh as I put my shoes on.

Three days ago, Jenna received an email about a promo concerning one direction in a diner in Sydney. It was very exclusive and only 30 people were chosen. You should’ve seen her when she saw this. She literally did not stop screaming, I ran out of the house because she was that loud. I was pretty psyched too, because we were chosen out of a million girls.  I thought they were hot and they had really good voices but I didn’t really like them like one of the crazy girls. 

She turned the radio on and one thing was on. I looked up at Jenna and saw her blue eyes widen and her mouth smile so big, it wasn’t possible. 

‘Jen, calm down. It’s only a promo.’

‘Calm down? There is no such thing as ‘calm down’ when one direction is involved. Honestly, Ali, why aren’t you crazy about them?’

‘Probably because i don’t them.’

‘I do. they’re 4 british boys and 1 irish boy. There is Harry Edward Styles, Louis William Tomlinson, Liam James Payne, Zayn Javadd Malik and Niall James Horan.’

‘Creep.’ I said, rolling my eyes.

‘It’s not creeping, it’s investigating.’

‘You’re so stupid, Jenna.’

‘You’re the stupid one, you don’t like them. What’s there not to like?’

‘It’s not that I don’t like them, I just don’t know them well enough to like them.’

‘You’re so logical about this.’

‘I am the smart one.’

She snorted and looked at me with a smirk on her face. Then what makes you beautiful started playing and she got distracted by singing along. 5 minutes later, we were parked outside the diner. It was half full and there was only girls inside. So many dedicated fans,it’s ridiculous. It was 12:30 by then and we had half an hour to eat before the whole place shatters with screaming fans. We sat on the counter closest to the kitchen door. I ordered a hamburger and Jenna ordered a salad, claiming that if some hot guy turns up, she didn’t want to look like a fatty. She is so stupid, i swear. We finished eating 5 minutes before the promo and I could feel the atmosphere tensing a bit as all the girls started to get those nervous fangirl jitters before something special. The clock turned one and I noticed cameras around the whole place. Maybe they were filming our reactions to the promo. Everyone started talking about what it’s going to be about. Then, a few more minutes went by and the next thing we see is one direction walking out of the kitchen. 

All the girls started bouncing in there seat and Jenna’s face was frozen. I giggled a bit at how ridiculous she looked. They sat down right in front of us and the guitar started to play. I recognised  what makes you beautiful and i started swaying to the tune. Jenna finally unfroze and her face broke into a wide grin and she started bouncing up and down. I rolled my eyes at her and looked back at the 5 incredibly gorgeous boys. I know they’re names but i’m not sure which is which. But the one who with brown hair and brown eyes started to sing:

“you’re insecure, don’t know what for. You’re turning heads when you walk through the door.” 

His eyes were scanning the room, obviously astonished at the crowds reaction. Then his part ended and the one with curly hair started to sing:

“everyone else in the room can see it, everyone else but you”

His eyes were doing the same as the one before and his expression was exactly the same too. This one was cuter and his voice could make anyone melt. He caught my eye and he just stared at me through whole chorus. I felt my cheeks turn hot and i could picture them getting redder by the second so i dropped my gaze. I looked to the other boys, the one with brown hair was just bobbing his head in a very in-my-own-world way. The one with blonde hair was staring at me or Jenna, not exactly sure. And the last one, was staring at me too. 

“that’s what makes you beautiful.”

The curly haired one ended the song and everyone broke into applause. I clapped too but kept my head down. I peaked at them through my eyelashes and saw that all of them were staring at me and Jenna. And as the other girls noticed this too, I could feel daggers digging into my back by all their death stares. 

The boys walked around the diner, shaking people’s hands and talking to a few fans. When they came up to us, all five of them were beaming at us. I automatically smiled back but I was a bit awkward. I didn’t know their names and i felt bad. So I looked at Jenna out of the corner of my eye, hoping for her help. But she was no use, she couldn’t say a word. So, I decided to say something.

‘Hello,’ I said with a smile.

‘Hello, love’ they all weirdly said at the same time. I didn’t know what to do after so I nudged Jenna in the ribs so she can get some life back into her and help me out.

‘Hi’ she finally squeaked. The boys chuckled a hearty laugh and I could feel Jenna melting. 

‘What your names?’ the one with brown hair and eyes asked.

‘I’m Alira and she’s Jenna.’ I answered. Jenna was staring dreamily at them, I was starting to get embarrassed.

‘I’m Liam, this is Harry, Louis, Zayn and Niall.’ he told us. Jenna nodded her head eagerly, obviously wanting to hear all of them talked. I smiled, finally knowing their names. 

‘Sorry, we have to leave now. We’ll see you guys sometime.’ Liam said shaking my hand. And as he did so, I felt a piece of paper in between. I’m pretty sure he was giving it to me so I held onto it. He gave Jenna a hug and walked out. The rest of them did the same. I couldn’t help but notice three of them looking a little disappointed. I forgot their names, damn. The diner began to empty out and soon enough only a handful of people were left. I looked down at the piece of paper Liam gave me.


Call us, we’d like to get to know you two.
