They Don't Know About Us

Hi, my name is Scarlett. I'm writing an article for a magazine. The topic is high school stories. A flashback into the past is exactly what I need for this article. So I called in a few friends to help me explain everything. It's like a story book, coming to life.
I was a shy junior, who moved schools, so many times because of getting bullied. It's my first day of school, & I've already made new friends...Harry, Louis, Liam, & Niall. This year will change more to find out how.

11. Getting Ready; Pictures

I got home at 11:50, then started getting ready. My parents weren't home again this weekend, so I was home alone. One of the biggest nights of my life, and they aren't home for it. Instead, they are in Vegas, spending money, trying to win more money.

I grabbed all my stuff; my makeup, my curling-iron, and my bathrobe. I walk to the restroom and start the shower to let it warm up. I undress and step into the hot shower. I clean my hair, and my body with scented shower products; I also shave my legs and under my arms. I sat in the shower for a few more minutes, before getting out.

I saw the time was 12:15, so I started drying my hair. After I was satisfied with how dry my hair was, I started curling it. That took me about an hour, so I started doing my makeup afterwards. I decided to go with a nice-toned foundation, a thin winged line of black eyeliner, silver eye shadow, a faint amount of blush, and some cherry lip gloss. I looked at myself in the mirror and I was so confident. I felt beautiful...not because of the makeup, but because of how confident I felt.

It was 1:45 when I was done with my makeup, so I went to my room and got out my dress, my jewelry, and my shoes. I sat on my bed for about 5 minutes thinking about tonight. Am I ready? Do I need to wait? I feel like he is the one, so I might give in. I hear people at the door, so I opened my window and saw the girls at my house, I yelled down for them to come on in and wait for me downstairs. I hear another group of people at the door, but the girls got it. Then, I heard the guys walk in and compliment their girlfriends, and then Niall asked where I was. "I'll be down in 5 minutes" I yelled down the stairs. I carefully put on my dress, my jewelry and my shoes; I looked at myself in the mirror. I loved it.

I opened my door, and started to walk down the stairs. I saw everyone talking to each other, having a great time, and the party hasn't even started yet, haha.

Scarlett: hey everyone.

They all turned around in amazement. I saw Niall's face brighten up and turn into a big smile. The guys were nudging and teasing him, while the girls came to talk to me about tonight.

Scarlett: hey ladies! You all look amazing!

Karmen: us? you look spectacular Scarlett! Niall will have SO much trouble trying to keep his hands off of you!

We all laughed and I blushed. Then, Niall started walking towards me. He took my hands in his, and stared down at me.

Niall: you look absolutely beautiful Scarlett. I'm really the luckiest guy alive *whispering to me*

Scarlett: Thank you Niall, you look very handsome yourself. *winking*

Niall: you are making it really hard for me to control myself, you know that, right?

Scarlett: whaaattt? no, i had absolutely no idea. *pecking him on the lips*

Niall: yum, cherry.

I just laughed at him as I took his hand and walked over to the rest of the group. 

Louis: Hey Scarlett, treat him well tonight. *causing the rest to laugh*

Scarlett: ohh, I will *winking at Niall* 

Liam: wow, you dress her up and she becomes a confident, feisty, flirtatious girl.

Niall: ohh, that's why I love her *kissing my cheek*

Louis: alright everyone, that was Simon *putting away his phone*...he said we have a half an hour to take pictures then we have to head to the Red Carpet.

Harry: alright, to the park!

Everyone: to the park!! 

We all head out of the house to the limo. It wasn't a long ride, but we all just sang to the music while heading to our destination. When we arrived at the park, we all got out of the limo and headed straight to the trees. We took pictures with our dates, some by ourselves, the guys took a few together, then girls & I took some together...then a few as a big group. After the pictures, we headed to the limo, then started heading to the Red Carpet event. We arrived, and that was when my heart sped up and I became nervous...but then Niall grabbed my hand and I calmed down. Let tonight be a great night.
