Counting Stars

Juliet struggles to deal with an identity crisis brought about by her past. The boys of One Direction set out to help her discover who she really is and who she should be known as. The entire time she has known them she has kept her past a secret from 4/5 of them. When she receives a call she finally gains the courage to tell another one of the boys. Then slowly one by one they all are told. Some feel betrayed and the others understand why she kept it from them.

Is she Julia Martin?
Juliet Summers?
Or does she go by Olivia Jackson for the rest of her life?
Each name has some painful memories behind it.

While doing this does her feelings for one of the boys create more problems that it solves?


7. Do I Like Him?

As soon as I entered the booth everyone cheered and hugged me. I realized we were on air and so Nick told everyone what had just happened.

“Sorry for the loud screaming just then. One of my very good friends Olivia just arrived late to work after a mysterious visit to the hospital. Harry didn’t give you an STI did he?” Nick teased me on LIVE radio!

“Oh my god Nick!!!” I screamed loud enough for the listeners to hear.

“That cat was out of the bag a long time ago.” He cheekily replied while I was left in the corner with bright red cheeks.

“If you wanted another little secret…” Jasper began from the opposite side of the booth to me. I quickly got up to rush over to him only I was too late. “Olivia here as been doing the nasty with not one but two of the One Direction lads.” With that I groaned at the thought of everyone knowing about my time with both boys. Instantly the phones went off as people were calling in to ask Jasper whom the second one was and if it was any of the three that are currently taken. Thankfully the only ones we answered weren’t abusive and they all assumed that it was Harry and Niall I was mucking around with. One girl who was about 15 asked me which one I loved. I was stumped as to what to answer to that but Jasper and Nick both answered for me.


They said “Niall” at the exact same time, which I found sweet yet annoying. I don’t even know what my feelings for Niall were. Heck I didn’t even know if I had any feelings for him but apparently everyone else thought I did.

“Can we just get on with the show?” I groaned in annoyance after the 5th caller who practically screamed into the phone in excited over the fact she was talking with a girl who has done it with two of her idols.

“Alright. We have 10 minutes left of the show so lets play the last few requests!” Nick says into the mic before the music begins and the microphones are turned off.


I reached Jasper and Nick who were kissing and I slapped them both on the back of the head. “Ow!” They said pulling away from the kiss.

“What was that for?” Nick asked innocently.

“Oh I don’t know… Maybe for telling the entire world I was fucking Niall and Harry! You have no clue how much I’ve tried to hide the fact I was fucking Niall from everyone.” I exclaimed before hitting them both in the back of the head again.

“Alright! Enough with the head slapping!” Jasper said with his hands raised in defence.

“Well someone has to pay for this.” I said before looking at the ground.

“Are you that ashamed that you are with Niall?” Nick asked me.

“I’m not with Niall. I just fuck him.” I said nonchalantly.

“Oh please the two of you constantly flirt like Nick and I do. And when it’s just us and the boys you are always cuddling with him and kissing him like its natural. When will you realize you love him?” Jasper asked me.

“Why does everyone think I love him?” I exclaimed in frustration.

“Just think about it babe.” Jasper whispered to me before leaving the room. The next radio host and his team came in and took over from Nick. I left the room and decided to go for a little walk to a park that was just down the road so I had a place to think without others bothering me.


When I got to the park everything was so peaceful and there was a lovely couple lying on the grass giggling and talking with each other. I sat down on a small park bench and began to think. I guess I have secretly always wanted that sort of a relationship. I mean Rob never let me date any guys when I was younger so I never had the chance. Even when he was arrested and sentenced to prison I never actually felt like dating. I reckon it was the fact that my own mother didn’t want to know me was the main reason I no longer believed in love. I mean if your mother doesn’t love you then who else could? But I was so very wrong about that, she did love me it just hurt her so much to see me.

‘No, stop thinking about that. You’re meant to be here to think about Niall and Harry. Mainly Niall.’ Great now I’m talking to myself. I started going through what Harry and my mum said to me. Surely if Niall had any feelings for me he would have told Harry. Then I thought about what Jasper told me.

It was true that Niall and I sure acted ‘coupley’ when it’s just our huge group of friends. I always just thought that it was the two of us compensating for having no one there. I didn’t think there were any feelings behind every kiss and cuddle shared.


Do I like Niall? Do I like him? It took me a while to decide on the final answer without any maybes or ifs and buts. I knew what I had to do.
