It’s 7:30 a.m., I woke up late, again. “Crap, if I’m late again, I’m going to get Saturday school and that’s not fun.” As I look at the clock, I realized that I only had twenty minutes to get ready before the last bell rings. I didn’t have much time to put on make-up at home, so I decided to put apply some in the car, nor did I have enough time to dress nice, so I threw on his hoodie, a pair of black skinny jeans and a pair of chucks while screaming at the stairs. “MOM! HURRY! I’M GOING TO BE LATE!”
I’m in the car when What Makes You Beautiful- One Direction plays. As I was jamming out to it, I attempted to put make-up on. Just when I was about to apply my favorite pink lipstick, I received a text from my boyfriend.
Him: “Good morning beautiful. :) I bet you woke up late again. Don’t waste your time on make-up, you’re beautiful just the way you are. <3 Don’t be late! Good luck baby!” I couldn’t help but to smile at the message.
Me: “Oh no. no. I look terrible right now!”
I took a picture of my attempt of the duck face and sent it to him.
Him: “Holy shit!”
Me: ” See! I told you. I look terrible right now!”
Him: “No love, holy shit, I’m looking at an angel right now. <3 Hey! At least you look better than the first time I met you. :P”
Me: “Shut up! lol. You asswipe.”
Him: “You know you love me. 0:)”
Me: “:P Of course. <3 I’ll talk to you later! Gotta get to class!”
Him: “Have a wonderful day love!”
We’ve been together for four months and a few days. It’s funny how things ended up like this. Five months ago, Kathy and I were joking about how I needed a boyfriend like her. Kathy was my one of my closest friends. She always took me in and fed me. Her house was pretty much my second home. We went on a road trip to New York five months ago and that’s how I met him. I was at the outlet, looking for a comfortable dress. (Skinny jeans in a long car ride wasn’t a good idea. Lesson learned.) There was a really cute little shop and there were a shit load of girls crowding around the store, which caused me to become very curious. I didn’t really know what the big commotion was about, so I jumped up and down to try to see. Sadly, I couldn’t see anything but the top of peoples’ heads. Kathy and I gave up on trying to see what was happening and moved over to the other stores. Like I said, I was looking for my dress and just as I saw the perfect dress, I also saw a pair of shoes, Nikes. They were very nice and I was trying to make up my mind on buying them or not. (I had pretty big feet for a girl, don’t judge.) I decided that I wanted to buy it, so I leaned down to get the shoes. “Hey! What in bloody hell do you think you’re doing love?”, asked a voice from behind the hanging clothes. Just as I was about the scream, hands reached for my face and pulled me in.
“What the fuck….?!??!” I screamed.
“Sorry, but can you please keep your mouth shut? I’m here for a reason.”, whispered the voice. I turned around and realized that it was Liam from One Direction.
“Holy shit! Liam!” I whispered.
“SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.. Don’t blow my cover!”, he whispered back.
“Okay.” We waited for the store to clear up a little. It felt like forever. What sucks was that I really had to fart. I could have held it in, but Kathy called me and my ringtone startled me, which caused me to let it out. My face was as red as a radish once I let one rip. I pushed Liam out of the racks, which caused me to fall. Luckly, he caught me. We were both on the floor, awkward and what not, and out of nowhere, he laughed, hard. His laughter caused a scene, which was no bueno. I started to speak in Spanish. (I tend to do that a lot when I’m nervous.) Once everyone realized that it was Liam on the floor, he helped me up, and we began to run towards his tour bus, but it was surrounded by fans. I remembered where Kathy parked and suggested that we run to our car instead.
“Brilliant!” he said. I knew that British accents were cute, but who knew that it sound better in person? As we ran to the car, I saw Kathy sitting on the trunk of the car.
“Kathy! Start the car! Hurry!!” I screamed as we got closer.
Kathy fumbled for the keys and with wide eyes, she screamed, “OH MY GOD ANDREA! YOU KIDNAPPED LIAM!??!”
“NO!! HURRY! LET’S GO! I’LL EXPLAIN ONCE YOU DRIVE!” I screamed back. I was surprised that Liam was laughing the entire time.
“DUDE!! THIS IS SO WRONG! ANDREA! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING?!”, she asked me with a panicked voice.
Once we left the parking lot, I explained to Kathy. “So.. I was looking for the dress right? And I saw these really cute shoes, and I wanted them, so I reached down, and I found Liam! Something happened and he started laughing like crazy, which caused a huge commotion, which caused a crap load of girls to case us, which lead to us run towards our car and to you thinking that I kidnapped Liam, but I didn’t!” I don’t think I made any sense, but that was the best I could do.
“What the hell caused him to laugh like crazy?!”, she asked me.
I avoided her question and introduced myself to him. “Hi. I’m Andrea. Sorry about the whole thing. Are you okay? How are we going to return you to the group?”
“Hi… I’m…” and he started laughing again.
“Why are you laughing so damn hard?” I asked him, frustrated, but excited at the same time.
“It’s just.. you…”, he broke into laughter again.
“JUST WHAT?!?!”, then I remembered that I let one rip in front of him.
“No!”, I interrupted him.
“Wait.. what’d she do?”, Kathy asked.
“She farted in front of me!” Kathy and Liam broke into laughter. I felt so embarrassed.
“STOP THE CAR!” I screamed.
“What?!”, Kathy asked while cooling down.
“Stop the fucking car. I’m going to walk.”, I replied quietly.
“Uh.. Okay…” Kathy stopped the car in front of a Mc Donalds and I ran into the restroom crying. “How fucking embarrassing is that?!” I asked myself. “Shit! How the fuck am I suppose to recover from this?!” Just then, I heard a knock on the restroom door. “Go away Kathy! I’m not in the mood!” I screamed at the door.
“This is Liam.”, he whispered. “Are you okay?”
“Shit.”, I whispered.
“You have to take a shit?”
“NO!!!!! NO!!! Sorry! I’ll be out in a bit.” I replied.
“Andrea, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to laugh at you. It’s just that, it was the first time that a girl farted in front of me. It was quite amusing. This is the most fun that i’ve had in a while.”, he said with a chuckle. I stepped out of the restroom, with my make-up running. (Water proof make-up my ass!) I didn’t dare to look him in the eye because I looked like a mess and I was already embarrassed enough. He lift my face up a bit and with a Mc Donalds’ napkin, he wiped away my tears. “It’s okay. It’s not that bad! I swear!”
“But.. I farted… and you guys laughed…”, I replied, sounding like a little kid.
“It’s okay to fart. Guys do it too! It’s one of the best things about being a human. I mean like, you feel relaxed after.”, he said, trying to hold back his laugh. “Here, I’ll buy us some ice cream and we’ll eat some during the car ride.”
“Thanks. Kathy buys me ice cream whenever I’m sad. You know, you remind me of Kathy. You’re like…. the… boy version of her…..”, I said. “How ironic…”
“Huh?”, he asked confused.
“Oh nothing.”, I said with really big smile on my face. “Let’s buy ice cream! You’re paying right?”
“Why of course! I mean, I am the man, aren’t I?”, he said and nudged me.
“Oh yeah… and.. girls don’t fart.. they shoot out rainbows.”
“THEY WHAT?!?!”, he screamed with laughter.
Once we got our ice creams, we headed back to the car. Liamreceivedmany calls from his manager, but he declined all of their calls.
“What are you doing? You’re going to get in trouble!”, I asked.
“I think it’s time to be a rebel.”, he replied. “OFF TO NEW YORK!”
We spent three days together, just enough time for us to get to know each other, before he got caught. His managers were pretty pissed off, but they were glad that he was alright. During the time we spent together, we shared manylaughter, many memories, and yes, many rainbows together. I know that this story sounds very off, but this is our story.
Once we reached New York, Kathy and I got backstage passes from the boys. Liam and I hung out at his dressing room. After he got dressed, he said, “It’s sad how we’re going to be parted from each other after the concert.”
“Yeah. I have school, and you have many more girls to run into.”, I replied.
“That’s true, but I doubt that there will be another one like you.”
“Ahaha…. yeah… because there won’t be any other girl that’s going to fart in front of you?”, I sighed. “I had a lot of fun.”
“Me too.”, he replied. There was a brief moment of awkwardness before the stage manager told him to get ready to take his places. “We’ll.. I guess this is goodbye?”
“I guess.”, I said as he pulled me in for a hug. Kathy and I stayed until the end of the show.
“That was some adventure we had huh?”, Kathy asked.
“Yeah…”, I said sadly.
“It’s okay! We’ll have more adventures like that.” I popped in their Up All Night CD and we jammed over and over again.
An hour or so after the concert, I received a text message from a number that I wasn’t familiar with. Once I checked the message, I knew who it was from. It said, “Rainbows. :)”
“HOLY SHIT! I THINK LIAM JUST TEXT ME!”, I screamed while slapping Kathy on her arm.
“Oh.. really?”, she asked sounding uninterested.
“YEAH! HE TEXTED ME RAINBOWS!”
“No way….”, she replied with the same tone.
“What’s up your butt?” I asked her. “You’re killing the mood.”
“NOTHINGGG!!! I’m just assuming that you’re going to be bored from my story about how I gave Niall your number to give to Liam.”, she said plainly.
“OH MY GOD. NO. YOU DIDN’T.”
“Hellll yeahhhh.. Don’t you love me?”, she said with her evil laughter.
“I so do!”
“Yeeeeeee!!! Guess what?”, she asked me.
“What? Do you have anymore surprises for me?”
“No….. I got myself a treat.”, she replied.
“Really!? What?”, I asked.
“I got myself some.. DIGGITTSSSS TOOOO!!!! NIALL!!!!” We bothsquealedlike little girls.
Of course, Liam and I kept in touch and started talking. I found out that they were going to have a concert in L.A.. A few days before the concert, Liam showed up at my house with a bucket of ice cream, some movies, and two V.I.P. tickets for the upcoming concert. “OH MY GOD LIAM… HOW’D YOU… Kathy…?”
“Mhm.. she told me where you lived and well.. here I am. I thought that maybe.. you’d like to watch some movies and to eat some ice cream?”, he said with a big, hopeful smile on his face.
“Hell yeah! I’m down!”
After finishing our second bucket of ice cream, he popped in the last movie. I didn’t recognize the movie, so I asked him what it was. “Sh… it’s my favorite movie.”, he said to me.
Five minutes into the movie, it showed him and the boys. “Hey Liam.. did you get the wrong movi….”
“Shhhhh.. it’s getting to the best part.” I sat there silently and listened to him.
“Andrea, I know that we’ve barely talked for a month, but I feel like I can connect with you and that you understand me. I know that this is very cheesy, but I couldn’t think of any other way of telling you this. I mean… love, you’re beautiful, even if you have make-up running, even though you shoot rainbows,” he laughed a bit, “you’re still you. I mean, you’re not fake around me, and I like that. I guess what I’m trying to ask you, is would you like to go steady with me?” I felt my face turn hot. I could tell that I was blushing, really badly.
“COME ON ANDREA! SAY YESSS ALREADY!”, screamed Niall.
“If you don’t do it, I will!”, said Louis.
“Hey! No Louis! You’re mine!”, said Harry.
“Guys! Guys! Cut your drama out of this! I don’t want to do another take on this! Come on Andrea! What do you say?”, said Zayn.
I was honestly shocked. I was shaking from the shock, it was too good to be true. I turned to Liam and he was holding a dozen roses. “Are you serious?!?!”, I asked him. “Stop fucking with me!” I tried to laugh it off.
“I’m dead serious. Andrea,” he began to blush, “Will you go steady with me?”
“Only if you promise to not do anything cheesy like this ever again!”, I answered him.
“NEVER AGAIN!?! BUT.. WHAT IF I WANT TO?”, he said with a huge smile on his face.
“Then… IT BETTER BE AS CUTE AS FUCK.”, I replied.
“WOOOOOOO!! GO LIAM!!!”, they all screamed.
“This is crazy!”, I told him. “This is like a dream!”
“Well, I promise you that this is all real.”, he said.
“Oh really? How?”, I asked him. I knew what was coming, but I still pretend to be clueless.
“Mmmm… Close your eyes.”, he told me.
“Okay….” I closed me eyes and leaned closer to him, then, splat! He threw ice cream on my face! “LIAMMM!! WHAT THE FUCKK!?!”
We both laughed and had an ice cream fight. We ran around the house, throwing ice cream at each other. He ran into the kitchen and slipped. I quickly ran to him, leaned down and asked him, “OH MY GOD! ARE YOU OKAY?!?!”
He quickly pulled me in and kissed me. “Mmmm.. cookies n’ cream.” He said with a smile. I felt embarrassed so I threw some more ice cream on his face and ran away. Later that night, my mom came home and was furious. She made him stay over to help me clean up the mess around the house. After we cleaned the mess, I walked him to the door. He kissed me and said, “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
“You’re coming back tomorrow!??!”, I asked surprised.
“Well of course! I have to see my pookie bear!”
“Oh my god! No! Even if you have an accent, it’s still an ugly nickname!”, I laughed.
“Just kidding!!!!! I WANT MY REMATCH!” He kissed me again. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
“Until tomorrow my love.”, I mocked him. “Okay. Yeah… that sounds so ugly… bye butt face!!” I kissed him on the cheek just before he left.
