Jennifer isn't the type of girl with natural beauty you read about in fairy tales and see in movies. She's very self conscious when she's away from home because of the things she's been through, the things that no one knows about. Who knew that one day, she would end up telling someone these deep, dark secrets? And who knew, that all this would happen because she crossed paths with the famous boy band, One Direction?


9. Truth/Dare


For the rest of the day Olivia just took me shopping and showed me around Manchester; it was beautiful, really. I didn't want to spend too much money, and the things in England were a little pricey, so I was able to control myself and not go all out like I usually do when I go shopping. Plus I wanted to be a little more reserved since the money my parents gave me for my trip was supposed to last the entire week and a half, so I couldn't spend it in one day all on food. For lunch, Olivia took me to a really fancy Italian restaurant, and I got an amazing looking plate of vegetarian pasta with a side salad.

I checked my phone, waiting for Harry's reply. We had been texting the entire morning and he said his interview was going great and he got to meet a lot of fans. He really was such a sweet guy. I told him about what I was doing and he joked about how I should deliver lunch to him since he hasn't gotten to eat yet. 

Olivia got spaghetti and salad, and we just talked and got to know each other a little better. I learned that she likes to drink green tea and read in her spare time. I also told her that we were staying in the same hotel as One Direction and everything that happened last night, and first she comforted me about Kevin, then seemed somewhat excited about the guys. She said she wasn't a huge fan of everything but she did like their music, but to her they were just some kids having a good time making music. I thought that was really funny because pretty much the entire universe was in love with One Direction and she just found it somewhat "interesting". 

After lunch we did some more shopping and walking around, and the city of Manchester was really beautiful. There were lots of big buildings and the chilly weather put me in a good mood. Before I knew it, it was dinner time and we ate relatively early, since I usually eat around 7:30 and we ate a little bit past 6. We went to another restaurant and just had a wonderful time. I realized that I really did like Olivia and I was glad it was her who would be taking care of me and not anyone else. I think she liked me too, or I hoped so. We drove back to the hotel in her stylish, red convertible and she said I could pretty much do whatever I want. 

"Do you want to go anywhere else tonight or are we done for today?" Olivia asked with a smile. I thought for a bit, then responded, "I think I'm good, thanks Olivia. I'll probably just go on the computer and call my parents and stuff haha. What are you gonna do?" She laughed and said, "Just drink tea and read," I hugged her and we both walked back to our rooms. 

Once I got back into my room, I webcammed my parents and told them about my day, and I also said hi to my brother and sister. I looked at my watch, it read 7:24 pm. What to do now? I've had quite some time to digest, so I decided to go back into the hall and stretch, hoping to bump into one of the guys again by chance. 

I changed out of my clothes, put on a pair of leggings and a big shirt, tied my hair into a high ponytail, and slipped on my dance shoes. Right after I stepped outside my room with my keycard tucked into my pants, I saw Niall and Zayn walking towards me, probably heading to their rooms. 

I waved, smiled and said, "Hi Niall! Hi Zayn," Both of their faces lighted and they replied warmly, "Good evening Jennifer!" Both of them asked me how I was feeling, and they seemed worried. I realized they were probably worried about the Kevin thing that happened yesterday. 

'I'm fine, don't worry about me haha. Where are you guys going?" I asked. Zayn replied, "Are you positive? We're about to go to Louis' room because it's the biggest for some reason. We finished dinner a little bit ago and now all of us are just going to hang out. What are you doing?" He scanned me from head to toe. I realized what I was wearing and laughed and said, "Oh I'm stretching for dance," Niall's eyes widened. 

"You dance?!" He exclaimed. I nodded awkwardly and he said, "That's so cool!" 

"Do you want to come in with us? You're not doing anything for the rest of the evening are you? You don't look like you're going to go out again," Zayn chuckled. My heart started to race. Zayn just invited me to go hang out with them. I stood there speechless for a bit, and finally snapped out of it and stuttered, "Yeah, s-sure! That'd be really cool," 

"Yay! Let's go!" Niall shouted cheerfully. His Irish accent was really cute and unique, and Niall had a very bubbly, happy personality. 

We walked into Louis' room together, and once the door opened I saw Louis sitting on his reading chair with a laptop, and Liam and Harry talking. They all looked up and greeted us, and once they saw me they all said together surprisingly, "Oh hey Jennifer!" I said hi to all of them and they were all really welcoming, so it wasn't awkward or anything, which I was so glad for. 

Liam suddenly said excitedly, "Guys let's play truth or dare! We can't just mope around like we usually do and do nothing since Jennifer's here today," I blushed and looked down. Just being in this very room made me feel kind of anxious.

Everyone thought it was a good idea so we all sat in a circle with a bottle in the middle. Liam was on my left and Niall was on my right. 

"Alright, I guess I'll start by spinning the bottle!" Liam said. He spun it and it landed on Harry. 

"Harry, truth or dare?"

"Hmm, truth,"

"Who's this special, mystery girl you refuse to tell us about?"

Harry rolled his eyes and said exasperatedly, "Christ Liam I've told you a million times there is no one. I'm not lying for this truth, either!" Niall leaned over to me and whispered in my ear, "Liam is absolutely convinced that Harry is seeing someone for some reason and he keeps trying to force him to spill, but Harry never does. It's just because Harry has been happier lately for some reason and Liam is always suspicious of him," I laughed and finally understood what they were talking about.

Harry took the bottle and spun it, and it landed on me. Shit.

"Jennifer, truth or dare?"

"Uhh, dare,"

Harry smiled a devious smile at me. 

"I dare you... to sing a song for us. It can be a shorter version if you want,"

I felt my face heating up. I know I can sing, but I have absolutely terrible stage fright, and I'd be singing for the five most loved and famous boys in the world right now. The five boys started to urge me to do it and I finally told myself, Cm'on Jennifer, you can do it. Show them what you've got. They think you can't actually sing, so take them by surprise. 

I groaned. I looked to the corner of the room and saw a guitar, so I finally got up to go get it. Liam, Louis, Harry, Niall, and Zayn all began to cheer when they saw me give in. 

"Don't judge me though, I can't actually play guitar, I just learned a few chords online," 

"We won't, we won't! Just go," They all said in unison eagerly.

I went over the chords to Love Will Remember by Selena Gomez in my head.

Okay Jennifer, just 4 chords. You got this. E minor, C, G, and D.

I took a deep breath, strummed the guitar, and began to sing.


"Love's all we got

and time just can't be bought.

I know it inside my heart,

forever will forever be ours

even if we try to forget.

Love will remember


You said you loved me,

I said I loved you back

What happened to that,

what happened to that?

All your promises,

and all them plans we had,

what happened to that,

what happened to that?


Boom gone, yeah we move on

even if we try to forget..

Love will remember you,

love will rememeber me

I know it inside my heart,

forever will forever be ours,

even if we try to forget.

Love will remember

love will remember

love will remember you," 


I slowly lifted my head and saw the five of them staring at me. Then they all clapped and cheered and I flushed. I gave Niall his guitar, since it had his name on it. 

"That was amazing!"

"I didn't know you could sing,"

"You go, you totally showed Harry up!" Liam chuckled at me. I smiled a genuine smile and felt a warm fuzzy feeling fill my heart. 

I got to spin the bottle this time, and it landed on Zayn. 

"Zayn, truth or dare?"

"I choose dare,"

"Hmm.. I dare you to call someone on your phone and tell them you've eaten too many burritos to everything they say," Harry and Louis burst out laughing and Zayn covered his face in his hands. Then he laughed and said, "Okay, here I go,"

He ended up dialing Paul's number.

"Hello? Zayn?"

"Hi Paul,"

"Do you need something?"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"

"... What?"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"

"Did you now?"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"


"I've eaten too many burritos,"

"Are you alright, Zayn?"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"

"Is this Harry's doing again?"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"

"God dammit Zayn,"

"I've eaten too many burritos,"

We heard Paul laugh hysterically before hanging up on Zayn. Louis, Niall, Harry, Liam and I rolled on the ground laughing so hard we cried. Zayn rolled his eyes at us and took the bottle, and spun it. It landed on Louis.

"Louis, truth or dare?"

"I choose dare too!"

"I dare you to kiss Harry on the lips,"

Niall and I could barely stifle our laughter. I loved sitting next to him, it was like sitting next to my best friend. Harry licked his lips seductively and Louis and Louis pulled out his chapstick and he pulled Harry's face close to his. For a second it looked like they were going to make out until they both burst out laughing. Louis couldn't bring himself to do it so he just kissed Harry's nose like his nanny, and it was still pretty funny. Then, Louis finally took the bottle and spun it. It landed on me again. Oh Jesus, why.

"Jennifer, truth or dare?"

"Mm, I'll choose truth this time,"

"If you could sleep with any of us in this room, who would you choose?" Louis asked jokingly. 

I rolled my eyes at him and said, "Hmm I would choose..." I scanned all their faces. It was so funny how they all wanted to know what my answer was. 

"I'm kidding. I wouldn't sleep with any of you, I barely know you! If I really had to choose, I'd choose him!" I pulled the big teddy bear off Louis' bed and smiled at him. Then I realized how soft the bear was and shouted, "OH MY GOSH HE'S SO SOFT. CAN I KEEP HIM FOR TODAY?" Louis shook his head and smiled at my childish behavior, but agreed. Niall laughed at me and said, "Good answer by the way," 

We played truth or dare for about an hour until I got tired and said I was going to go back to my room. They all hugged me and walked me back to my room, which was really really sweet. After I closed my door, I heard them all laughing and fooling while walking back to their rooms. I'm such a lucky girl.
