You Make Me Strong

Leela is from a small Caribbean island name Jamaica. She just moved to London to live with her dad, sister and step-mom. She is expected to start college soon but she just wants to relax before she starts. When she visits the beach with her friends one cool afternoon in summer she never expected to meet a guy that understands her as much as she understands him.


1. How it all started.

Leela's POV

"Goodbye mom " I said to her as I left to enter the plane. All I could think about was my new life in London with my dad and how much fun I was going to have this summer. It wasn't my first time being in London but back then I was visiting now I'll be living there. I couldn't wait to see my dad, sister, step-mom and my friends I met last year but I was also thinking about how much I would miss my mom. This would be the longest we're apart but then I remembered it was the best thing for me to do. 

* 9 hours later*

I am finally here, I sighed. "Dad!", I yelled. I ran towards him and I was welcomed with open arms. " I missed you so much", he said. " I know dad, I missed you too." I replied. I love my dad so much that it hurts. "C'mon everyone is waiting at the house to see you including your friends" he said. We hopped in the car and within 30 minutes we arrived at the house. I hugged everyone and told them about my flight but I was jet lagged I had to take a nap. 

* next day*

Leela, wake up! My step mom yelled. I woke up and ran down the stairs, my friends were standing in the lounge with bikinis on like they were ready to go to beach. I stretched and sighed out the laziness I was feeling.

" What are you guys doing here? " I asked. " Its 12:30 in the afternoon, we are going to the beach and we were wondering if you'd like to come seeing that its summer and all, " Emily said.

"Sure let me go get myself ready," I said. " I'm ready!" I screamed.

We hopped in the car and we were on our way to the beach. It was me, Samantha, Emily, Scott and Alexandra. I met them last summer in Mc'Donald's. These guys are fun and live life carefree just like me. We arrived at the beach, applied sun screen and set up our spot just the way we like it. Samantha and I were taking sun tans on our towels when I heard someone say hi. I looked up and saw Liam Payne from One Direction. I couldn't believe it, I was shocked. I stood up and said hi. He looked at me and said my name is "Liam Payne and you are?"

" I'm Leela, Leela Brown to be exact" I replied. He was acting shy but he was still smiling.  He asked for my number and I gave it to him not knowing whats gonna happen next. He said "bye, I'll text you later". I was speechless. I just nodded. After he walked off Samantha was jumping up and down like she just heard good news. 

" Why are you jumping up and down ?" I asked. 

" That was Liam Payne, he's in the biggest boy band in the world, he just talked to you and he has your number. Aren't you excited?" she asked.

" Sam calm down! He's just a normal teenager like us not every time he nor the other boys are going to want people fan girling in their faces." I replied.

" Ok, ok. I get it but still I'm happy for you"

" happy for me? We didn't even have a five minute convo though. When he text me then you can be happy for me until then please keep calm." I said with a smirk.
