“Lily! Get your arse down here now!” I heard mum shout from downstairs. I was in for it this time. I’d spent all her money on magazines with my favourite band, one direction, in them. I didn’t mean to, they were just, like, calling me.
“Yes mum!” I called back. Nervously I made my way downstairs.
“WHERE has all my money gone?!”
“Ermm… i don’t know?”
“You and I both know where it’s gone! You have spent it on magazines with these STUPID boys in!”
“Sorry mum, it won’t happen again!”
“Lily! I’ve had enough of you and these silly boys! I’m going to send you to your dad, in Ireland for a bit!”
Oh no. Don’t get me wrong, I love my dad and all, but we just don’t get along! Last time I saw him was two months ago, and I left be giving him the finger. I know it’s not very mature, but he killed my hamster! Bye bye summer.
“MUM! That’s so unfair! It’s the summer holidays! And I won’t be able to see all my friends! And what about my birthday?!”
“Lily, I’ve already booked a flight, you’re leaving tomorrow, and the flight is at 3pm, from Heathrow! End of conversation”
Oh my god! I absolutely hate her right now! She knows that I have plans for my birthday! And every other day for that matter! Oh well, I guess there’s no point in arguing now. When my mum gets her mind set on something, there’s no changing it.
My dad lives in Mullingar, in Ireland. He moved there after he and my mum got divorced a few years ago. I like it there, I have a few friends, but there’s something about the place that’s a bit, off.
“Earth to Lily! Earth to Lily!” my brother shouted as he waved his hand in my face. I hadn’t even heard him come in.
“What do you want Sam?! I’m busy” I didn’t want to be so mean; I was just in a bad mood.
“Fine. I won’t tell you something then!”
Damnit I really wanted to know this.
“Fine. What is it?”
“Well, you know dad lives in Mullingar right?”
“No shit Sherlock!”
“That’s not the big news! The news was that he’s got man flu, so you’re going to have to do all his shopping!” and with that he left.
Oh no. My day has not been good, as I said, dad normally was hardly bearable, but when he’s ill. You don’t even want to know.
Anyway. As I was packing, I thought I’d put on some music, I put my iPod on shuffle, and skipped a couple of songs to find a good one. Finally forever young, the one direction version, came on. I immediately started singing along, I liked my voice, but it was nowhere near as good as theirs.
I finished packing after about an hour; mum wouldn’t let me take all my magazines, so I figured I’d buy some at the airport.
I was tired by eight o’clock that night. So I journeyed upstairs, fell onto my bed and drifted off into a dreamless slumber.
The next day I woke at eleven, and I only had thirty minutes until I had to leave for the airport, Sam was at his friends’ house, and mum was at work, so it looked like I was to get a taxi.
I rushed in the shower. Got dressed in my favourite T-shirt, leggings, and cardie, and rang the taxi company. They said they’d be about ten minutes, so I decided to check one direction’s tweets.
Harry and Zayn hadn’t tweeted since their last ones I saw, so I moved onto the others. Louis’ staying over Liam’s house for the week, so all of their tweets right now are hilarious! Then niall’s tweet was just simple ‘next door said his daughter’s coming over for a few weeks, should be fun!’
All I could think was how lucky that girl was, I bet she made her dad buy that house next to Niall’s. Then I heard the taxi outside, so I left without another thought on the matter.
When I got off the plane, my dad was waiting for me, and boy he looked terrible, his nose was bright red, and he looked like he was half asleep. I greeted him with an unenthusiastic hug, don’t get me wrong, I love him, we just argue. So anyway, off I trot to Mullingar.
When we pulled into the drive, the first thing I noticed was the amount of girls outside the house next door. I figured it was just a party. Great, I thought, they’re going to keep me up all night.
When I got into my room I looked around. I looked at all the stuff I’d bought, or left, here over the years, it was full of childhood things. The walls were pink, the floor was pink, and the bed sheets were pink. I used to like pink, a lot.
I sat on my bed, and checked the boys’ tweets, again. Louis had tweeted Niall ‘has the new girl come yet?’ to which he replied, about three minutes ago, ‘yeah, I’m going to go around and say hi’
Again, I thought what a lucky girl. I really like all of the members of one direction, but Niall was definitely my favourite. I don’t know what it was, maybe it was just the fact that he’s Irish, I’m a sucker for the accent.
After I had unpacked my things, I went downstairs and turned the TV on, I put on one of the music channels and I started to sing along to old really old songs. Dad was in the kitchen, making dinner.
The doorbell rang, I got up really slow, I was tired after my flight. I got the biggest shock when I opened the door though.
Outside stood a beautiful young boy, wearing a red shirt, grey cardie, baggy, low jeans, and a pair of toms. And that boy was Niall Horan. Speechless, I let him in. I tried to talk, and nothing came out.
I led him into the sitting room. With him was a girl, about the same age, with a pretty face and short blonde hair.
“Hi, I’m Niall, and this is Ella.” he said, in his dreamy voice.
“Umm, hi.” I said faintly, I don’t think they heard me though.
“You must be Lily” Ella said to me. “Your dad hasn’t stopped talking about you since he found out you were coming.” She said happily, like I was already her best friend. It was nice.
“You must be Lily, are you okay? Do you need some water?” Niall questioned, I was feeling a bit dizzy. I tried to walk to fridge to get a bottle of water. But instead, everything went blurry, and everything went black.
I woke to find someone stroking my cheek, knowing this could never be my dad; I reluctantly opened my eyes, only to find a pair of beautiful blue green eyes staring into mine.
I immediately felt extremely embarrassed, and I probably looked like a tomato, but I didn’t care, because Niall Horan was in my living room!
“I was who you were tweeting about?” I asked.
He looked a little nervous, maybe scared I was a crazed fan, but I wasn’t crazy. “Ermm, I must have been, are, and are you a fan?” He shook his hands through his hair.
I didn’t know what to say, so I just nodded.
He looked a bit apprehensive. Then Ella started speaking to me, I’d completely forgotten about her.
“Have you come here much before? I haven’t seen you around?” she asked friendly.
“Not really,” I admitted. “Only about five times, but my dad’s lived here for a few years now. It’s a lovely place”
“Would you like to come round to mine for a barbeque tonight?” Niall said, quite quickly.
Was I hearing correctly? Did Niall Horan just invite me to his house?
“Yeah, sure” I said, hopefully in a cheery tone.
And with that he left, it took all that was in me not to scream.
I went to get my laptop, to tweet about this, but I thought I better not, people would think I’m lying, and I’d get hate. I better wait until I have a photo.
I got dressed at about six o’clock. in my white dress with red and yellow flowers, my red tights, and my silver pumps, i made my way next door.
The crowd of people had died down now, and there were only a handful of people left. They all stared at me, green with envy, and i just smiled back, without caring what they thought.
I rang the doorbell, and i didn’t have to wait long until someone answered, and that someone was ella, she must be his best friend, i thought.
“hi Lily, how are you?” she greeted me nicely. “Everyone’s in the garden. Would you like a drink?”
“i’ll have a coke please.” I replied. I doubted their judgement to have everyone outside, because there were some grey clouds looming overhead. But it was free food, so i didn’t complain.
When i stepped outside i immediately started to search for Niall, but i didn’t have to look for long. For there he was. His beautiful blonde hair was simply perfect, and his eyes sparkled in the sunlight, i was mesmerised by his flawlessness.
His mum offered me a sausage, but i declined. i was afraid i’d spill it down my dress and make a fool of myself in front of everyone.
“Hi Lily! How are you? I’m so glad you’re here, your dad said you might not come, but i hoped you would!” he blabbered on for a while, just talking nonsence for most of it. It was nice, not having to talk for a change. I’d made a friend! Well, two friends. I was happy.
I ended up eating alot in the end, i had a burger, two sausages, a vegetable skewer, and some ice cream.
“where’s the toilet?” i asked Niall quietly.
He smiled and replied with “i’ll show you.” With his cheeky i adored so much.
He led me up stairs and directed me to the third room on the right. I locked the door. I didn’t really need the loo, i just wanted to fix my make up. It was agood job too, because my lipgloss had completely gone and my eyeliner was a little smudged.
I’m not like other girls, i don’t plaster myself with make up, i believe that less is more. So all i was wearing was eyeliner and lipgloss.
When i got out i heard someone playing guitar, so i followed my ears. For some reason, what i found surprised me.
It was Niall playing, i knew he played the guitar, but i never realised how good he was. He was playing a simple tune, then writing the notes down on some paper.
I never knew he wrote songs, and by the look on his face when he noticed me, no one did.
“oh, umm, what are you doing here?” he asked, looking worried.
“i finished in the toilet, and i heard the music.” I answered truthfully. I wanted to hear more of his song, but i didn’t know if he’d say no, then i’d be embarrassed. I figured no harm would come if i just asked. “i didn’t know you wrote songs!”
“yeah, well, tunes, i can never come up with the lyrics. I’ve never had anything or anyone to sing about.” He admitted.
I could feel myself blushing, i don’t know why though, i had no reason to be embarrassed. But the way he looked at me, was different to the way he looked at everyone else. He looked at me like i was the most beautiful girl in the world.
I know i was probably being silly, no one would like me. I mean, i know i’m not ugly, but i’m not pretty. I have shortish dark brown hair, brown eyes, and i’m not fat, but not skinny. “will you play me the tune?” i asked nervously.
“oh, sure.” He started playing a slow but happy tune, it was peaceful, like a warm summers’ day. I started smiling. When he finished he looked at me, and started smiling too. His smile filled me with warmth, from head to toe.
“wow.” was all i could manage to say.
“you liked it?”
“i didn’t like it, i loved it!” i exclaimed. He looked shocked, i don’t know why. He was part of one of the biggest bands in the United Kingdom. Yet he obviously didn’t think he was able to write a good song.
“i think we should go back downstairs, before they start to wonder where we’ve gone.” He announced after a comfortable silence.
The rest of the barbeque went by in a flash, and before i knew it was eleven o’clock and time to go home.
Niall showed me the door. He was still talking, he’d been talking all night, i learned alot about him. I learned that he’s really shy, funny, and he’s never done something wrong on purpose.
What shocked me the most about what he said, was that he’s only ever had one girlfriend, and that was ella, but apparently they decided it was best they’re friends.
I left his house and made my way back home. it was cold now, so he’d lent me a hoodie, it smelled like him, which was nice.
There was no one waiting outside his house now, they must have learned the meaning of the word privacy.
When i was nearly at my door he called my name. “you can’t seem to get enough of me, can you Niall?” i joked.
He laughed, he made me feel warm again. “do you want to hang out tomorrow? You could come around mine, and we can watch some films.”
Was Niall Horan asking around his house? “will Ella be there?” i asked, i wanted to know if we’d be alone.
“no, she has to work, she’s saving to buy a ticket to Hollywood. So, do you want to come?”
I had already made my decision. “yes, i’d love to!” i said, i was so excited, i knew i wouldn’t be able to sleep that night.
He smiled, he seemed excited too. “do you want to come around at about ten?”
“yeah, that sounds good!” i said goodbye again and went into the house and straight upstairs.
I sat on my pink computer chair and opened my laptop, which was on my desk, and i loaded my laptop. I opened the internet and searched my two favourite websites, Twitter and Tumblr.
I had taken some pictures, but i decided not to post them. I thought it would be best to ask Niall about it first. I looked up Niall’s twitter, and to my surprise he’d already tweeted ‘had the best night of my life tonight, and i met an amazing girl today! @LiliLovesOneDirection’
Oh crap, i better change my name, i thought. I didn’t want to seem like an obsessed fan. I changed to a simple @LilyRosexx .
Even though i ate alot at the barbeque, i was still hungry. So i went to the kitchen and grabbed a packet of quavers. I heard my dad talking to someone, when no one replied i realised he was on the phone. I thought nothing of it and made my way back upstairs.
When i checked my Tumblr i had a new message, i nearly screamed with joy. Opened my message page and saw that it was anonymous, hoping it wasn’t hate i read on. ‘why did you change your twitter name? I thought it was cute, i think you’re cute!’
Wow! No one had ever sent me a message like that before, i didn’t know how to reply, so i texted Ella. She’d given me her number tonight so i texted her asking how to reply to that.
I think u shud say ‘thanks stranger, buh whoo r u?’
So i replied with exactly what she said. A few minutes later i got another message. ‘wouldn’t you like to know? ;)’ i got a little annoyed now. I wanted to know who this mystery person was!
My eyelids were feeling rather heavy now, do i got into my favourite pyjamas and got into bed. Even though i was tired, i couldn’t get to sleep. I’d had such an exciting day, if didn’t think i’d ever get to sleep. This world is full of surprises.
The morning after i got up at ten minutes to ten. I hadn’t realised how late it was. I rushed to get ready. I slipped on some leggings and my baggy rolling stones top, slipped on some pumps, pulled my hair back in a pony tail and left carrying my phone and a few dvds.
I knocked on the door, and Niall answered. His face immediately lit up, so i blushed, like i always seem to when he looks at me. I stepped inside, but not before i noticed he was only wearing a pair of jeans, no top.
It took all that was in me not to giggle out loud at the sight. He was so fit! I tried to be as calm as i could, but when i went into the lounge, he had closed the curtains, got popcorn, sweets, and every type of fizzy drink you could think of!
I sat down, and he sat next to me, really close. Then he spoke. “hi, what film would you like to watch first? I saw from your twitter that you like Harry Potter, so i went to Tesco this morning and bought you the Deathly Hallows!”
“really?! i’ve been meaning to get this since it came out! You’re amazing!” i was so loud i was nearly yelling, but i didn’t care.
He went over to the TV and put the DVD into the player. He picked up the remote and sat down beside me, this time even closer.
We didn’t really watch much of the film, we were talking again. we just managed to catch the last part, and unlucky for me, it was the part where Dobby died. That was the part i always cried at. I just couldn’t help myself.
Niall put his arm around my shoulders, i couldn’t help but smile. Everything was perfect. After that, we ordered a pizza for lunch. While we were eating he let out the loudest burp i ever heard, he apologised, but i just replied by letting rip an even bigger burp. We both ended up rolling on the floor laughing.
We were just sitting on the sofa again, when he got out his guitar. He started playing a familiar tune, it was i’m yours, my favourite song. We both sang along, when we finished he said.
“woah, your voice is amazing!” he said. I just laughed, i was sure he was only being polite.
“oh Niall you do make me laugh!” i said.
“i’m not joking.” He replied. “you have a truly amazing voice, would you like me to set up a meeting with Simon?”
“yeah!” i was sure he was joking. “then after that we’ll go have tea with the queen!”
“Lily, i’m being serious, and to prove i’m being serious, i’ll do this!” and he kissed me.
It felt like fireworks were going off, it felt like everything you were supposed to feel. Then i was stunned. Unsure what to do next i looked at him. He was smiling, like Christmas had come early.
I felt myself beginning to smile too, i just couldn’t help it. I kissed him again. Then i remembered something. The tumblr message.
“Niall?” i said sweetly.
“yes Lily?” he said, the smile not leaving his face once.
“i had a message on tumblr yesterday, and i was wondering, if you know who sent it?” now it was his turn to blush. I’d had a feeling it was him. “do you think i’m cute?” i asked cheekily.
“do you think i’d of kissed you if i didn’t?” his face was like a strawberry, but he was still adorable.
I got home late again that night. We’d spent the rest of the day just learning everything about each other. We also sang a bit more. he was amazing, but he kept complimenting me, so i got embarrassed.
At about ten o’clock i logged into tumblr and twitterand i checked my e-mails. Then i found one from Jess. She was asking how i was.
How do i even begin to explain how i feel?
I thought the best way to reply would be to send her the pictures of Niall and i at the barbeque last night.
I went to sleep immediately, the millisecond my head touched the pillow. I didn’t know how i fell asleep so quickly, but i managed it.
The rest of the week flew by, and before i knew it was the day before my birthday. I was the youngest of my friends, and about to turn seventeen. Some of my friends had sent me presents, but i was getting the rest when i arrived home.
Since i’d sent Jess those pictures, she’d rung me every night, and she was coming over today.
I’d been seeing Ella alot too, we’d become good friends. It was like i knew her all my life. She was so easy to talk to, and she had alot of gossip about all of one direction, so we always had something to talk about.
Everyday Niall either came over to my house, or i went to his. We couldn’t really go anywhere else, because he’s be stampeded by all of his fans.
The rest of the boys, Louis, Liam, Harry and Zayn, fly over the day after my birthday. That should be fun, i haven’t met them before. Niall said he’d told them about us being together, and they couldn’t wait to meet me.
I’d told everyone i didn’t really want a big fuss for my birthday, just a small get together. I hope they stick to that, but i doubt dad will, he likes to make people feel special on their birthday.
Dad hed been acting rather odd recently though. He’s been on the phone all the time, then when he wasn’t on the phone he was going out. Something was definitely up.
I was interrupted mid thought by the doorbell ringing. I rushed to answer it because i immediately knew it was Jess. She pounced on me the second the door was opened. Her grip on me was so tight i could barely breathe.
We rushed into the sitting room. we chatted like we hadn’t spoken in years, decades even, when it had only been a matter of hours.
“where’s Niall” was the first question she asked. Typical her.
“he’s next door, you can see him later! And the rest of the boys are coming the day after tomorrow” i said, answering her next question before she’d even asked it.
She wasn’t as much of a fan as me. She never really liked them at all to be honest, but she was always up for a good gossip.
After about an hour of talking the doorbell rang again. This time it was Niall, who greeted me with a kiss and moved into the lounge, where him and Jess started talking while i went to get some snacks for us.
they stopped talking when i stepped into the room, the air became so think with awkwardness you could cut it with a knife. I ignored it though and sat down next to Niall, he put his arm around me. Jess went upstairs, and said something about putting her bags in my room.
“what do you want for your birthday?” Niall asked, the moment Jess was out of earshot.
“nothing, i don’t want anything!” which was the truth. All i wanted was him.
“okay, but i’m still going to make you a cake!” that was something i couldn’t refuse. Another secret of Niall’s is that he’s an amazing cook.
“will it be chocolate?”
“would i make it any other way?”
Jess came bouncing down the stairs. She was clearly excited about something, bit i didn’t know what.
“Jess, what are you so excited about?”
Niall gave her an evil look, and she changed the subject. I was going to get to the bottom of this, weather they liked it or not.
The rest of the day, until about three o’clock was spent happily talking and messing around. until i went on my tumblr. During the week i had posted some pictures of Niall and i, and Niall had tweeted saying that he’s in a relationship.
Everyone had been pretty good with it. Until now. I saw that i had received a few messages, and i thought they’d be nice, like all of the ones i’ve gotten before. Boy was i wrong.
They were all anonymous, but that didn’t make me feel any better:
You should die!!
Niall deserves better!!!!
Bitch go and kill yourself!
I couldn’t believe what i was reading. I’d almost forgotten that Niall and Jess were still in the room. I burst into tears. They stopped talking and looked at me. Nail looked as if it pained him to see me cry.
“what’s wrong?” he demanded, but i barely heard him.
The hate was playing over and over in my head. I rushed upstairs, straight into my room and i slammed my door. How could people i don’t even know be so mean? I’ve never done anything to them!
I heard someone calling my name, i ignored them and lay on my bed. My face colliding with the pillow softly. I knew all these good messages were too good to last.
My door was opened, i lay still on my bed. Maybe i’d become invisible and they’d leave. Jess sat down on my bed next to me.
“Niall made a tweet.” Was all she said, and i straight away looked at my phone
How dare all of you send my girlfriend hate! She didn’t deserve it! I love her!
My crying ceased. He loves me? I blushed, as always. I slowly got up and made my way downstairs. I saw him, he looked anxious. “i love you too.” i said. he smiled again. I love that smile. I moved over to him and i kissed him. He lifted me up a little, so our eyes were level.
I was in love for the first time in my life. And i liked it.
I woke up extra early the next day. I leaped out of bed and put my purple slippers on.
“IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!” I shouted. No one answered. That was strange. Jess wasn’t in my room. Was she downstairs? I hopped downstairs. She wasn’t there. Neither was dad.
I got dressed and went and knocked on Niall’s door. No answer. This is getting a bit creepy. I decided to call everyone.No one answered until my friend Rosie.
“hi bud how are you?”
“i’m good Lils!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” i had to hold to phone away from my ear so i wasn’t deafened.
“thank you! Hey, quick question, do you know where everyone is?”
“oh, i don’t i have to go, bye!” and with that she hung up, wierd.
There was a knock on the door. I hoped it wasn’t just the postman.
“Lily!! I haven’t seen you in AGES!” it was ella, thank goodness, a person!
“ella, do you know where everyone is? I can’t find them!”
Her smile faltered a little, but she regained it quickly. “i don’t know, maybe they’ve gone out. Shall we go shopping?”
I loved shopping, it was my favourite thing to do, so i agreed. I grabbed my bag and we left. I already had some money so i used that, sure i’d get more later, when i found everyone.
Ella let me show her all of my favourite shops, new look, topshop, david and goliath, and jack wills. We’d been shopping for about two hours by the time it was twelve o’clock, and i was hungry, because i didn’t have any breakfast, so we went to mcdonalds. I had a chicken nugget meal with coke, ella just had chips.
She’d been asking me questions all morning, about everything from clothes to sheep! I had a feeling she was trying to get me to not talk about my birthday, or where everyone was.
“ella, is everything alright? You seem to be acting wierd, everyone is, where are they? Where’s Niall? Where’s Jess?” she squirmed in her seat and looked out the window.
“look at that pigeon!” she was very bad at changing the subject. But se wouldn’t tell me where they were, so i dropped it and we went back to mine.
The next three hours was spent trying on all of my new clothes, and doing our make- up and hair. I didn’t know why, we weren’t going anywhere, but it was fun.
i was dressed in a pink, sparkly, knee length dress, and my hair was pinned back in a messy, but sophisticated bun, and ella was dressed in a pair of blue skinny jeans and i tight, extremely sparkly, purple and blue top.
Ella decided we should go and show Niall our outfits. I didn’t mind, I hadn’t seen him all day.
I looked at the clock, it was five thirty. We stepped out of my front door, it was getting a bit cold out now. i should’ve brought a cardie, i thought, too late now.
I went to ring the bell, but ella had a key. She unlocked the door, and walked in, i followed.
“SURPRISE!” i jumped out of my skin! The whole of Niall’s house was covered in balloons, and streamers and ‘Happy Birthday’ banners. Everyone was here, and i mean everyone. No wonder i couldn’t get hold of them! They were decorating the house!
And to my surprise the rest of one direction were here too, Liam, Louis, Harry and Zayn. I walked into the house, i now know why ella made me dress up.
Niall came up and kissed me. I got a little embarrassed though because my dad was there. I made my way around the room talking to everyone, and i stopped when i got to Jess. Her and Liam were kissing! They hadn’t even known each other for a day, but i left them to it.
I found my dad, he handed me a card, inside there was €100. He was never good at buying gifts, i didn’t mind though, it meant i got back the money from the clothes and other things i bought today.
I stepped over to the food table, everything looked so good, and in the centre of the table, was a huge cake. It was covered in every sweet you could think of. On the top were seventeen pink candles.
I decided i’d go and speak to Louis and Harry. They were sat on a chair in the corner talking about something.
“hey boys!” i cried, the music had been turned on, and it was loud.
“hi Lily!” they said simultaneously. Creepy.
“did you know about all of this?” i questioned.
“of course.” Louis said with a grin
“Niall told me you were coming tomorrow though!” i was a tad confused.
“that was part.”
“of his plan.” Harry had finished Louis’ sentence. Could they read each other’s mind?
“he loves you so he wanted to make this your best birthday. And,” he whispered the last part.
“we bought you the best present ever.” Harry said as he handed me a small package with Christmas wrapping paper.
I excitedly tore off the paper, to find a pair of fluffy purple socks. With ears.
“you shouldn’t have!” i laughed.
“don’t worry about it.” They said together again. I didn’t realise they were this close. Talk about bromance!
Louis was now stroking Harry’s hair. Harry gave me an embarrassed, then smiled with perfect teeth. I smiled back politely. I hoped we would all become good friends.
When i got back to Niall he took me into his room, i was a little uneasy, because i didn’t know what he was doing at first. He sat me down on his bed and grabbed a rather large bag. A little confused, i looked in the bag. There was a load of presents in there.
“for me?” i asked quietly.
“for you” he replied softly.
I picked up the first package, it was quite large, and rather squishy, i opened it slowly, not wanting to ruin the magic.
It took me about ten minutes to unwrap everything in the bag. There was my favourite hoodie of his, some nice tops, a gorgeous dress that must’ve cost a fortune, some DVDs and CDs, and tickets to the first ever one direction tour.
The bag was empty, i looked at him, about to say thanks, he pressed his lips to mine. The kiss lasted ages, but only felt like a second. He went in his pocket and pulled out a black velvet box and handed it to me.
I gasped when i opened it. I saw a beautiful, gold, heart shaped locket on a chain. He took it out of the box and opened the locket. Inside there was a picture of him, and a picture of me.
I started crying happy tears. I had the perfect boyfriend. I’d never do anything to hurt him. Niall saw i was crying again, he looked worried and asked.
“what’s wrong? Don’t you like it? I can get you another one if you don’t!”
“no, nothing’s wrong, it’s perfect. I love you!”
“i love you too Lily. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, and have children, and our own house.”
I couldn’t believe i was in a relationship with the boy, i had only been imagining a relationship with only two weeks ago. Now i had totally given myself to him. This moment was perfect. He put the necklace around my neck and clipped it together.
We stayed sat on the bed for a few more minutes before we went downstairs. Liam and Jess were still snogging, no surprise there. Harry and Louis were having a little fight, about something or other, it sounded a bit funny to be honest.
I went over to ella. She looked upset, i couldn’t have anyone upset at such a happy time. So i went on a mission to cheer her up.
“smelly ella!!!” i yelled. “vas’ happenin’?” she laughed a little.
“it’s Harry. He never seems to notice me, i broke up with Niall because i liked him, and i try talking to him all the time. But he doesn’t notice me.”
“do you want me to talk to him?” i love relationships.
“are you sure?!” she asked excitedly.
“Of course!” i danced my way over to Harry. He stood up when he saw me. There was something extremely odd about that boy. “Harry can i speak to you about something?” Louis gave him a look, as if to say ‘don’t do anything stupid.’ He seemed to get the message and nodded.
“what do you want Lils?” he acted like we were best friends.
“you know Ella?”
“yeah, she’s cool.”
“well. She likes you. Like, she like likes you. And she’s upset because you never notice her!” his face dropped, he was clearly expecting something else.
“oh. Umm..” he looked stuck for words. Then he smiled. “i’ll go and talk to her!” YESSSS!! Lily strikes again!!
“Baby.” Niall whispered in my ear, sending goosebumps over my body. “time for us to sing happy birthday!” before i looked at him i looked over at Ella and Harry, they were both flirting.
Niall turned off the lights and lit the candles. Everyone gathered by the table, me closest to the cake.
“happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Lily! Happy birthday to you!” Louis finished about ten seconds after everyone else, because he was singing in the funeral march tune. Everyone was laughing.
I was on my way home. I decided i’d get all of my presents from Niall’s tomorrow. Dad came through the door behind me, i shut it.
“Lily, i need to talk to you about something.” He said.
“sure dad, what is it?” i was still smiling from the party.
“well, i’m sure you’ve noticed that i’m out of the house more recently, and i think it’s time i told you why.”
I wasn’t sure i liked where this was going. “yeah, what’s with that?”
“Lily, I’m getting married.” Oh shit.
(italics is Lily’s dream and Harry’s flashback)
I stood outside, waiting for the door to open. It was starting to get a little cold outside, but i was no way going back to my house. I mean how could he go and get married again!
The door opened and Harry stood in the doorway. I hugged him tightly. He hugged me back. He kissed the top of my head slightly. i wanted to see Niall.
“what’s going on?” i heard someone say in an irish accent. Niall was at the top of the stairs. I ran to him and threw my arms around him. Now i felt safe. “are you okay Lily? What’s happened? Is there something wrong with your dad?”
“h-he’s getting m-married.” I sobbed. I took the divorce quite hard, i mean it had always been the four of us, then for there suddenly to be only three of us at a time was wierd.
“hi lil! What are you doing back here? Oh what happened?”zayn said.
“i was going to stay here for a bit.” I looked at Niall. “is that okay?”
“of course babe, you can stay here as long as you want. I’ll go and find you something to wear to bed, you can stay in my room.”
“are you sure you’re okay?” Harry asked me as i made my way back down the stairs.
“i’m fine now thanks.”
“Harry!” Louis called. He sounded angry. That’s unusual for him. “oh, hi Lily, what are you doing here?” he looked at Harry, clearly trying to act normal.
“i’m going to stay here for a few days. Where’s ella by the way?” i almost forgot about her.
“she’s gone home, we’re going to go into town tomorrow, well, today actually.” I looked up at the clock, it was one in the morning.
“yeah, Harry, you’re going out with Ella tomorrow. No one else! Ever!” Louis reminded him.
“Louis?” i asked. “why are you so angry with Harry tonight? You were arguing earlier too!” i was curious now. Loius looked stuck for a bit, then said.
“why don’t you tell her Harry?” Harry looked like he was a deer caught in the headlights.
“Harry?” i asked.
“i have to go, and, umm, sleep.” Rubbish excuse, but i let him be.
Niall came back down the stairs carrying one of his tops. He smiled at me, obviously trying to make me feel better. I went into the kitchen and had another slice of my cake. Chocolate makes everything better.
I couldn’t sleep at all that night. I got to bed at about one thirty, i was tired, but i still couldn’t sleep. I tossed and turned all night. Thinking about my dad and this woman. I searched her on facebook after dad told me her name. She’s twenty three. He’s forty five.
She’s such a slut. A gold digger probably. If i ever meet her she’s going to get a slap. Niall slept like a baby, i actually envied him. I wanted to sleep. I ended up laying on his chest, running my fingers up and down his tummy.
“Lily, i love you.” He murmured in his sleep. I smiled. I felt my eyelids beginning to droop, and very soon i was in a deep sleep.
“hahaha Lily! I have my new wife, Sarah now! You have nothing. Your mum doesn’t want you back!” my dad’s voice ran through my mind.
“i don’t really love you Lily, i was just pretending. Really i hate you.” Niall’s voice was vicious. I didn’t like it.
Tears started running down my cheeks.
“Lily!” someone shouted.
“no! No! No! No! No!” i screamed.
“Lily! Lily. Lily. Lily.” My name was being repeated over and over and over again.
I woke with a start. Niall was sitting next to me.
“Lily!” he cried.
“wha-what happened? I had a dream!”
“i can tell. Are you okay? You were shouting!” his voice sounded worried.
“i’m fine now i’m awake.”
“oh, sorry, i didn’t want to interrupt anything, but i was wondering if you’d like to come to town with Ella and i?” Harry interrupted us. Grrr.
“i can’t sorry mate, i have to tidy the house” Niall said “but Lily can go with you, if she wants.”
“sounds good Hazzle, about ten yeah?”
“yeah!” he said with a smile. “i’ll give you a ride.”
I sat in the driver’s seat in the car, with Lily already sat in the passenger seat. I can’t believe Niall got to her first. He’s so lucky.
We drove to pick Ella up in silence. I had time to think. Think about last night.
“you shouldn’t have!”
“don’t worry about it!” Louis and i said together. She laughed and walked off. The sound of her laugh echoed in my mind. It was beautiful. She was beautiful.
“Louis.” I said. I need to tell him.
“yes baby cakes?” he always calls me that.
“i think i like someone.”
“GET IN THERE!”
“and it’s Lily.” He looked at me. He just looked at me. Then his face turned angry.
“you can’t. She’s with Niall! And they’re both happy!”
“but, she’s perfect!”
“listen. Do you want to hurt Niall?”
“do you want to break up the band?”
“no, but liste-“
“no more buts! If you really like her then wait! if she likes you then she’ll make it happen! But for now just forget about her.”
Louis was right. I should just leave her. But, she’s like amazing. how can i forget about her?
Louis and i argued about it for like ten minutes, then Lily came back downstairs. Louis and i were still arguing, so we quietened down a little.
She was talking to Ella. I think Ella liked me, she’s nice, just not my type. Just not Lily.
Oh my god she’s coming over, Lily not Ella, she’s completely flawless. I just hope my mouth works properly.
“hi Harry can i speak to you about something?” Louis gave me a look, i knew exactly what it meant. Don’t snog her face off here.
Then she asked me to go out with Ella, i don’t mind her, but she’s more of a friend.
I went to talk to her, but i only just managed to ask her out, and steal a quick look at Lily before it was time for the cake.
I spent the rest of the evening with Ella, trying to make her feel special, so i’d get into Lily’s good books.
“Harry, i think this is the turning.” I snapped out of my day dream. I didn’t even notice how far we’d come.
“oh, i’ll just go and get Ella.” I said. I needed to get out of the car for some air before the rest of the journey.
It was eleven o’clock by the time we got to town we walked around for ages. Going into all of the shops Lily wanted to go to, we did also go to some of Ella’s shops too. I held her hand, ella’s not Lily’s, because i thought it was the right thing to do. Plus i thought it’d make Lily happy.
After a bit we went to starbucks. Lily wanted to go there, so i agreed. Lily and i were talking for ages, and i kept trying to include Ella in the conversation, but she was being a loner so i left her alone. She looked a little sad, but she was obviously trying to hide it.
“i’m a little tired, i think i’m going to go now.” Ella said at about two o’clock, we said bye to her and she was on her way. Yay! I was alone with Lily!
She was talking about something, i was trying to listen, but her beauty was overwhelming me. I touched her hand. She didn’t pull away. That’s a good sign.
“i just need a friend right now. You know what i mean?” i caught her saying. I nodded.
Her phone buzzed she read it aloud.
Hi baby, where are you? I’m in town now xxx
She replied with our location, if i was going to do something, i’d have to do it now, before he got here.
I leaned in closer to her. She looked at me. Her eyes are beautiful. I decided i’d just go for it. Kiss her, Niall’s not here yet, what’s the worst that could happen?
I fiercely pressed my lips to hers. I pulled away after a second. She looked stunned. Her eyes were wide.
“what are you doing with my girlfriend?”
Yes. I’ve finished tidying my house, I think I’ll go and meet Lily and Harry and Ella in town now.
I got into the car and daydreamed about Lily all the way there. I hope she’s okay. Just before she left she was nearly in tears again.
Her dad had called around just after she left. He was in pieces. but he left soon after he found out she wasn’t here.
It didn’t take me long to get to town because there wasn’t much traffic. I found a parking space and paid for three hours.
Hi baby, where are you? I’m in town now xx
It took her mere seconds to reply.
I’m in starbucks with Harry, Ella just left. Come quick! :P <3
I walked fast. I wanted to run, but I thought I’d look weird.
I found starbucks and bought a coffee before I went upstairs, that’s where they’d be. There’s not many people here, odd for a holiday!
I got my coffee and rushed up the stairs, excited to see Lily.
Then I saw something that I didn’t like. Harry and Lily were kissing!
“what are you doing with my girlfriend” I asked, once they parted. I tried to keep my voice calm. But I was dying inside.
i’ve told this girl everything. I’m letting her live in my house, and this is how she repays me?
And Harry’s supposed to be one of my best friends. But he’s just gone and stabbed me in the back. I can’t believe this. I love her. Well, not any more, I tried to convince myself.
“Niall! It’s not what you think!” Lily cried
“no, I know exactly what’s going on! You never loved me! You’ve only been using me to get to Harry. Well you got what you wanted! Congratulations!”
she was crying now. It hurt me, but I couldn’t take back what I had said. She kissed one of my best friends.
“but Niall, I love you!” she called as I walked away.
“and I thought I loved you.” I said. It was a bit harsh. But she deserved it.
I hate Harry. I hate him so much! I thought he liked Ella! But he was only using her to get to me!
What a dick!
I was crying. Tears racing down my cheeks. I slapped Harry and stormed off, leaving him stunned.
My phone started ringing, Eliza Doolittle, pack up was playing, oh how I wished I could pack up my troubles.
It was ella. I hope she hadn’t heard.
“HOW COULD YOU?!” she screamed, I had to hold the phone away from my ear. “YOU KNEW I LIKED HIM AND YOU WENT AND DID THAT? HOW COULD YOU DO IT TO NIALL? HE RANG ME IN TEARS! HE GAVE YOU EVERYTHING HE COULD AND YOU JUST THREW IT AWAY! I AM NEVER TALKING TO YOU AGAIN!” and she hung up.
She made me feel worse than I already did. I made my way to the bus stop. The next bus didn’t come for half an hour, I decided to wait. Grey clouds were forming overhead and rain was coming. I didn’t have a coat. I was going to get cold. Who cares.
When the bus finally came I was soaked through. My make-up had run all down my face because of my tears, I didn’t care. I paid the driver €3 and sat at the back of the bus.
I got home. I silently went and packed all of my clothes and belongings, I creeped into Niall’s house. I knew he’d still be out. I gathered all of my presents and went back to dad’s.
I texted Niall and dad
I’m going back to Cardiff. Goodbye. X
At the airport I got the first flight back home. I sat on the plane and just listened to my ipod. Grenade by Bruno Mars came on and it instantly reminded me of Niall. I went to the X Factor tour with my friends and Niall played the guitar while singing. I started to cry.
I hated Harry so much and I can’t imagine how hurt Ella must feel, we had just started to become friends. Poor Niall he looked heart broken.
I spent the rest of the flight crying and thinking about Niall.
When I landed I rang my mum and she came and picked me up. We sat in silence for the whole journey.
‘You know you can talk to me, don’t you?’
‘Mum, I don’t want to talk.’
When we finally got home I ran up to my room. I had 2 miss calls and a text. It was from Harry.
Lily, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what I was doing. You’re an amazing person, don’t ever doubt it. You’re beautiful, funny and such a nice person. I was gutted Niall got you first. That’s what was up with my and Louis, he warned me not to do anything stupid and I did. When Ella left us I don’t know what come over me. You were so nice to me and when you were looking at me something came over me. I’m so sorry. H xx
I started to cry again. My miss calls were of dad. I didn’t want to speak to him. I didn’t want to speak to anyone. I deleted Harry’s message, I didn’t want anyone reading it.
I curled up in my bed and listened to my ipod slowly falling asleep. I didn’t want to wake up.
three days later Rosie was around my house. She was the only person who’d talk to me. She heard my side of the story when no one else would.
Each day she came over and brought a massive tub of ben and jerry’s cookie dough ice-cream, she knew it was my favourite.
I know Niall hated me, but I never once took off the necklace. I’d just stare at the pictures inside. Willing to feel something other that sadness, but nothing worked. I still felt empty.
I tried calling him yesterday. But I just got his answering machine. I decided it was time to try again. This time I hid my number.
He answered after three rings.
“Hello?” he said, he sounded sad.
“Hi, Niall, it’s me!” the line went dead. He hung up on me.
That was the final rejection, the last I could take. I now had nothing to live for. And what’s worse, I was constantly getting pains in my chest. I didn’t tell anyone, but I thought it was because my heart was broken.
Mum had gotten me a car for my birthday, so I decided to go for a drive, I haven’t got my licence yet but I thought what harm can it do if I go for a little drive?
I woke up, I was in a strange room. The clock had a calendar and it said august 21st. Last i remember it was only august 10th. How did I get here? All I remember is that I was driving, and crying, because the latest one direction song came on the radio, and it reminded me of Niall. Then darkness.
My chest hurt, along with every other part of my body.
“oh my god! Lily! You’re awake! Nurse!” mum called.
“mum what happened, where am i?”
“you were in a car accident, but you’re all right now!”
“mum, is Niall here?” I needed the answer to be yes, but I doubted he would be.
“no darling he isn’t, but Harry is.” Oh no. he’s the last person I want to see right now.
“I don’t want to see him!” I couldn’t move I was in so much pain, otherwise I’d be kicking the bed.
He came in despite my protests.
“hey.” He said casually.
“how can you be so bloody casual about all of this?!” I screamed.
“I was going to say that Niall’s on his way to Cardiff, but i don’t know if he’s coming here. He still thinks it’s your fault. I’ve tried to tell him that it wasn’t, but he just won’t listen.”
“thanks for making me feel better.” The sarcasm was dripping from my voice. But he didn’t get it.
“Lily, i want you to know i’m always here for you.”
“SHUT UP! I hate you! And i hate everything about you! You took away the ONLY good thing in my life! And you haven’t even said sorry!”
He looked down guiltily. I smiled on the inside. I won. He left sulking after another minute.
“darling!” mum called. “they said you can leave whenever you’re ready, but you’re going to have to take some painkillers.”
I hated hospitals. It was a relief to get out of there. I got home at four. Ella was there. She hugged me. I guessed Harry had talked to her too.
“i’m so sorry! I never should have even thought you’d do that! I love you! You’re my best friend!” she was crying. So was i. I couldn’t help it. I was one step closer to Niall loving me again.
“it’s okay! I have you back! Ella you don’t know how happy i am right now! Umm.. has Niall forgiven me yet?” she looked away from me. I knew the answer.
“he still thinks it’s your fault. I’ve tried to tell him what Harry told me. I thought he’d listen. But whenever someone even says your name he ignores them and leaves.” I started crying silently. So did she. At least i had one friend.
We talked for the rest of the day and all of the night. And i was clutching my locket all of the time. I needed him.
“go away.” He said bluntly. Niall was in a terrible mood, and apparently had been for days now.
“but i need to tell you something!” i needed to tell him about Lily.
“fine. You can have a minute.”
“Lily was in a car accident!” Whatever he was expecting, it wasn’t that. He looked worried.
“is she okay?”
“she’s fine now, she’s awake and at home. Wait, Harry said he told you about her.”
“he said something about Lily. But when i heard her name i just ignored him.”
“she wears her locket all the time.” I said quietly. He needed to know that. I think i saw the corners of his lips turn up slightly.
“is she still going to go to our tour?” his voice shook slightly.
“i don’t think she was going to, but i’ll persuade her for you.” He properly smiled this time. He still loves her. I think they’re going to get married some day.
I rushed home. We agreed to keep it a secret until the tour that he’s going to get back with her. And he said he had a surprise for her, but he wouldn’t tell me what it was. I was going to have to wait.
She still loves me? Rosie left half an hour ago, and it still hadn’t sunk in. I loved her too. I’ve loved her from the second i lay eyes on her. She’s the most important thing in my life.
But when i saw her kissing harry i was completely torn. I haven’t done much since then. I’ve only gotten out of my pyjamas for the first time in days today!
I hope she isn’t hurting too much. I’m such an idiot! Why didn’t i believe her! Heck why did i hang up on her?
Mum kept checking on me every couple of hours. It was odd, it was like she thought i was going to die or something. But i wasn’t. Now ella was here i had alot more hope about getting seeing Niall again.
I was still going to go to their tour. I had front row seats and backstage passes, why wouldn’t i go? Tomorrow ella and i are going to go shopping for outfits for it. I need to look amazing for my plan to work. But i have hardly had any sleep so that’s probably not going to happen.
I got up at about ten the next morning. I had been lying awake in my bed for at least half an hour, just thinking about my plan. Ella sat up suddenly and gave me the fright of my life. We were laughing for the next ten minutes. It felt good to laugh again.
We left for town at twelve and it only took seven minutes to get there on the 27 bus. We went to all of the best shops in town, vogue for my dress, schuh for my shoes, and Acessorize for all of my accessories.
For lunch we had sushi. Ella didn’t like it but i thought it was lush! But the time we got back to mine my feet were killing me.
I had a shower before we settled down to watch Doctor Who with some popcorn. I wouldn’t let anyone talk during the whole thing. It’s my favourite show.
Less than a second after they had finished showing what’s on next time there was a knock on the door. I ran to answer it, i don’t know why, but i had a good feeling about it.
When i opened the door, there was nobody there. Only a bouquet of flowers, they were white lilies.
I took them inside and placed them on the table. There was a little white note amongst the flowers. And in curly, delicate writing was
I love you. I’ll see you at the tour tomorrow. X
“this better not be from Harry.” Was the first thing i thought and said. But the writing didn’t look like Harry’s, it still looked familiar. Oh my god. I thought i knew who’s it was, but i didn’t want to get too excited, after all, it might not even be him.
Ella and i went back into the sitting room after a while of just staring at the small piece of card.
We turned on ITV just in time for Britain’s Got Talent. We watched and laughed at all of the terrible acts that performed. We both agreed that our favourite act from the show that night was a little girl, who recited a poem with a snake around her neck.
We went to bed, tired from our hectic day, Ella fell asleep straight away, but i saw the note every time i closed my eyes. Ella snored, and made me jump, i laughed to myself. Deep down i knew the worst had come, and it would all be better soon.
I finally fell into an uneasy slumber at around two in the morning. I was dreading the day ahead of me.
(sorry about all the POV changing in this chapter)
Getting ready for the gig tuning my guitar. Warming up my voice whilst people are doing my hair and makeup. I’d gotten used to wearing makeup now, i thought it was too girly at first, but i realised that i look like a ghost on stage without it.
I got dressed in black jeans and and a white shirt with the top buttons undone, and a loose, thin black tie. There was still a while to go before the concert but we were all ready and sitting in the dressing room.
“hey guys.” I needed to tell them my plan before we went onstage. They were all looking at me now. “after we’ve sung Forever Young, and before the interval, i need to say something, say something to Lily.” That put a smile on all of their faces straight away.
“of course dude! My little leprechaun finally grew some balls!” Zayn joked. We all laughed. Except Harry. He was looking at me angrily. In other words, if looks could kill i’d be worse than dead. Oh well. Nothing could spoil my mood tonight. I was going to see my baby again.
I slipped on my light, pink, sparkly, knee length dress at about four o’clock. The show started at seven but i needed to do so many things to get ready.
I curled all of my dark brown hair, except my fringe. I could barely breathe with all the hairspray Rosie, Jess, and Ella had sprayed. Goodbye ozone layer!
I put in some pink gemmed earrings, and wrapped my locket around my neck. I tried to make my eye shadow look professional but it kind of failed, it still looked alright i guess.
I applied my sparkly lip gloss and my white eye liner, to make my eyes look bigger, and i was near enough ready, i just needed to put on my new baby pink converse and i was ready to roll.
All of the others were wearing dresses too, Ella was wearing a purple one, Rosie a green one, and Jess was wearing a blue one.
Once we were all ready we went downstairs and nibbled on some toast, we were all too nervous and excited to eat any more. We watched some telly for half an hour before we left.
We decided to go a bit early so we could go backstage before hand. The traffic had other ideas though, the streets were chock a block! We only just managed to get there in time. We had to rush to get to our seats.
The lights went down and everyone started screaming, but my heart was pounding. I was about to see him again. The girls were screaming too, the noise was deafening, but i didn’t care.
i’m always nervous when i’m about to go on stage, but this was almost unbearable. It was like my life was on the line. Well, it near enough was, because if this went wrong then i’d have nothing to live for.
We moved around under the stage to get to the rising platform, and my heart was thumping against my ribcage. The love of my life was out there in the front row. I didn’t know what to do with myself when we were waiting.
“Niall!” Harry whispered.
“yeah?” i was a bit nervous after the look he gave me earlier.
“i need to tell you something. I ned to tell you that, that i’m sorry, i’m sorry for kissing Lily. She’s yours and i know that now. I was just jealous. I never seem to get girls.”
“you have GOT to be kidding right? You never seem to get girls? Seriously? What happened to ‘the curls get the girls’? and what about Ella? She likes you!”
“yeah but i bet she doesn’t like me now.” Our music started playing and it was time to go on stage. This conversation was going to have to wait until later.
The platform was rising. I stood and started singing our opening song, Torn. Everyone was screaming, except one girl in the front row, that girl was Lily.
We went through all of our songs, Chasing cars, Viva la vida, but it was like i was on auto pilot. I just couldn’t stop staring at Lily.
When Forever young finally came along i was so scared about what was coming next.
Niall was amazing, he was playing his guitar for a bit during Forever young. I remember when we first hung out, at his barbeque, and i found out he wrote songs. I couldn’t help but start crying.
I stared at him, only for a little bit before i noticed he was looking at me too. I stared at my feet. One of my tears fell to the floor. I had to leave before i was hysterically crying.
I looked at him one last time, our eyes met, i got lost in his beautiful blue eyes. I remembered all of the times we spent together. At his house when he first kissed, when he comforted me when i found out my dad was getting married, but worst of all, i remembered his face when he saw Harry kissing me.
“i need to go to the toilet.” I told the girls. I ran. I ran through the crowd as the music finished and they roared. Then i heard his voice say my name.
The song finished. It was time. The rest of the band smiled and nodded at me.
“hey guys! How are you all doing?” i paused for a bit to give them time to scream. “i would like to say something, to someone VERY special to me! Lily!” i looked into the front row. Where was she? I looked back at the others, they looked just as confused as me.
“Lily? Where are you?” i needed her to be here. The lights searched the stadium for her.
“Lily! Lily! Lily! Lily!” the crowd chimed.
The lights found her. She’d been crying, oh no. She held up her hand to stop the lights blinding her, they were pretty bright.
“Lily!” i called. I needed her to hear this. “Lily. I don’t often do this, well, i never do this. I wrote something for you.” And my fingers moved up and down the neck of the guitar as my other hand played the notes.
The music was familiar, really familiar. OH MY GOD! I thought. It was the song he was writing at the barbeque at his house! The tears were streaming down my cheeks. I couldn’t believe he was playing a song for me in front of at least a thousand people.
He started singing. I thought he didn’t have anything to sing about.
I never thought i’d find the one
Until i found you
It was such a surprise
I can’t believe it
I love you
You’re definitely the one for me
No one else is better
No one else is right
You’re the best surprise i ever had
Better than any birthday present
Better than anything i could buy
I never thought i’d find the one
The one i love
You’re the one i care about more than anyone else
You make me go crazy
You make me go mad
You make me do things that are totally rad
But i don’t care
Because i love you
If we started again i wouldn’t do anything different
Because our time together is always perfect
I’m sorry if i’ve ever hurt you
You know i wouldn’t do it on purpose
You’re my whole world
You’re my silver lining
Before i met you my world was grey
But now there’s a whole new range of colours
Yet to explore,
You’re always on my mind
I struggle to concentrate in any situation
That doesn’t involve you
Because i love you
You make me go crazy
You make me go mad
You make me do things that are totally rad
But i don’t care
Because i love you.
He played a few more notes then he was finished. I walked slowly towards the stage, when i got there he lifted me up onto it.
He kissed me. And fireworks went off. Every single person in the arena was cheering. Small, shimmering pieces of paper fell from the ceiling. The moment was magical.
