I’m walking down the street and then suddenly the rain poured. I put my hoodie on and started walking faster… then someone blocked my way.
“HI!” The guy greeted me.
“Hello…” I looked at him, he doesn’t look familiar to me.
“What’s your name?” he asked me.
“My name’s Viktoria.”
“Oh, nice name. By the way I’m Zayn.” He offered me an umbrella.
“Thanks, but I don’t need it.”
“Uhm, okay. Can I get your number?” he handed me his iPhone.
Why is he asking for my number? Weird. But I put my number and gave it back to him.
“Thanks.” He smiled. After he got my number he run to the three boys.
I look away and I run towards my bestfriend’s house as faster as I could cause the rain gets heavier.
When I got home, I saw Mom carrying a tray of snacks.
“Oh, honey. You’re wet. Go upstairs and change, you might catch a cold.”
“Okay, but Mom where are you going?”
“Your brother brought his friends here.”
Oh, I didn’t know my brother was here. And I didn’t know Harry have friends haha.
When I’m done changing my clothes, I rush down the stairs and go to the kitchen.
Then I saw a familiar face, he’s the guy I met earlier.
“Hey… Sissy! I’m in! I mean… we’re in!” Harry told me.
“Oh, that’s brilliant bro! congrats.” he’s talking about X-Factor audition.
The guy in striped shirt smiled at me.
“By the way… I want you to meet… my four best friends. This is… Louis *the guy in striped shirt*.
Liam… *guy in polo*. Niall…* the blonde ones*. And… Zayn *the guy I met earlier*.
“Hi!” I greeted them. “We met earlier.” Referring to Zayn.
“Yeah, I didn’t know you’re Hazza’s sister.”
HAZZA? What’s that? A nickname?
“You already met him? Where?” he asked me.
“I met him outside, 3 blocks away from Kara’s house.”
“Hmmm. Did you asked for her number?” Harry asked Zayn.
“Yeah, she’s kinda cute.” He answered.
“Yeah, she’s cute.” Louis said.
Niall the blonde ones laugh. “Zayn, are you going to ask her out?”
“Sort of.” He said.
I sat down beside Harry’s chair. He whispered something. “I’m giving you… a warning sissy, he’s a bit… playboy.”
Oh, a playboy… I whispered back. “It’s okay bro. I think I can handle him.”
Then Mom came. “Hey, kids. Here’s the pizza!”
Mom placed three boxes of extra large pizza.
“Thanks Mom!” Harry kissed mom on her cheeks.
After dinner, Harry asked mom if it’s okay to camp outside the house. Weirdo haha. But Mom say yes.
“Would you like to join us?” Harry asked me.
“Erm, I’m not comfortable sleeping outside, Duh.”
“Please, sissy. Please. Please. Please.”
“Okay, fine. Ergh.”
“Viktoria’s joining with us!” he shouted to the four boys outside, they’re preparing a bonfire.
After I got my pillows. We go outside and join them.
“Let’s play Truth or Dare.” Niall said.
“Yeah, I like that!” Louis screamed.
He spin the bottle and it points Harry.
“Okay, Truth or Dare?” Liam asked Harry.
“Hmm… If we won on X-Factor. What’s the first thing you’ll buy with the money?”
“Erm… I’ll buy.. Five pussy cats…”
“That’s cool, next next.” Louis says.
He spin the bottle again and it pointed Zayn.
“Dare.” He stated.
“Okay, hmm… Kiss Viktoria on.. her cheeks J.” Harry said.
“Ow, that’s—-“ Liam put his hand in Niall’s mouth.
“Kiss, Kiss, Kiss.” My stupid brother said.
“Shut up Harry, I didn’t say I’m joining your games.”
“Sorry, Viktoria. But you’re not exempted.” Louis said.
“What? I didn’t say I’m joining in that truth or dare thingy.”
“Do it now Zayn!” Niall screams.
“Is it okay, Viktoria?” Zayn asked.
“Fine, psh.” I stated.
Zayn kissed me on my left cheek.
“That’s sweet. Okay, next.” Louis said.
After that truth or dare game, we decided to sleep.
“Good morning.” Harry greeted us.
We’re in the kitchen. And I’m preparing my favorite meal. Cereals!
“Mom, we’re leaving today. We have to go in the Boot camp.”
“Today? Oh, I’ll miss you, my baby boy.” Mom kissed harry.
“Good luck to you my dear brother.” I told him. “And you guys also.” I smiled at them.
“Can we eat now?” Niall asked.
I opened the fridge to get fresh milk.
“Cereals again?” Harry asked.
“Duh, it’s Bieber Flakes.”
“YOU LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER TOO?!” Niall grabbed my arm.
“Hmm… sort of?” I laughed.
“Zayn likes him too. Would you like to go on Justin Bieber concert with us?.” He asked me.
“Of course, I’d love that!”
“That’s great. Are you guys finish eating. I think we have to go now.” Liam said.
“Yeah, let’s go.” Louis excitedly runs outside the house.
“Bye, guys. Take care. Harry don’t forget to call.” I hugged him.
“Yeah, be safe here.” He tap my back.
“Call me after the boot camp, okay?” Mom said.
“Yes, mom. I will.”
They got inside the van.
I saw Zayn mimed that he will call me.
I waved them goodbye. I just smiled at him.
“Mom, can I go shopping?”
“Sure, honey… here’s your credit card.”
“A credit card? Woah! Thanks mom!” I hugged her.
I rush upstairs to get my bag.
“Bye, mom. I’ll be back before lunch.”
Months have passed. Finally! The X-Factor ended. And my brother, Harry and his friends are back.
“Where did you get that name?” I asked Harry.
“Secret, haha.” He gave me a annoying smile.
“One direction? Ugh, whatever..”
I’m eating cookies that Harry baked. I saw Zayn walking towards the kitchen.
“Hi, Viktoria!” Zayn greeted me.
“Hey, how’s life?”
“Nah, not good.”
“Why?” I asked him.
“Hmm… I don’t have a girlfriend.”
“Haha, that’s your reason? Meaningful huh.”
“Yup.” I can feel that’s he’s smiling.
“Why don’t you get your own?”
“She doesn’t see me.”
“Who? The girl you like?”
“Hmm… Are you sure about that?” I asked him.
“I think so. “
“That’s pretty sad. Hmm… do I know her? Maybe I can help you.” I smiled.
“How?” he looked straight to my eyes.
“Uhm, tell me… her name.”
“Okay, her name is Viktoria.”
“Viktoria? As inV-I-K-T-O-R-I-A?”
“Yeah, I mean… you. Don’t you get it?”
“It’s you, Viktoria.”
“Me?” I asked him again.
“Yes.” He sat beside me. “So, can I court you?”
“I ah… I don’t… know. How to explain this. Uhm can we just be friends at the moment?”
“It just that… ugh. Harry said that you’re a playboy. And I should be careful.”
“Aww. That’s not true. Just.. give me a chance. And I’ll prove to you that I’m not that kind of guy.”
“O-okay. I’ll just talk to my brother.”
“Thanks.” Then he hugged me.
“Ahm… I’ll just go upstairs.”
“How sure you are?” Harry hissed.
“Maybe, he’s serious Harry.” I said.
“Sissy, I know him. And I don’t want anyone hurt you. You’re my sister.”
“I know, but can we just trust him and let him prove himself. Please.”
“Alright. Do whatever you want. But remember if I saw you crying because of him… I assure you I’ll beat him.”
And then he left me alone in my room.
Oh, god. What should I do now?
One week later. I’m in my room in front of the computer. And suddenly, my phone rings.
I saw his name light up my phone.
“Zayn…” I muttered.
“Hi, are you free tonight?” Wait? Is he asking me out?
“Hmm, I have… nothing to do.”
“Good. I’ll be there at 6pm, wear your best dress!”
“I love you.”
“I love… myself too!”
I heard him laugh on the other line.
I shut down my PC. And took a shower. It’s 3 o’clock. I’m looking at my closet and I see nothing to wear.
Aha! I’ll call Kara!
“Hello…” Kara answered her phone.
“What can I do for you my dearest Viktoria.”
“Hey, Kara. Favor please.”
“What is it?”
“Could you buy me a dress? I need it now. Please.”
“Hmm… I’ll think about it.”
“Okay, what time do you need it?” she asked.
“Ahm, 6pm.” I laughed.
“Kfine. I’ll be there at five, Bye!”
“Thank you so much, bye!”
“Everything’s okay dude.” Louis said.
“Wait, did you buy a bouquet of roses?” Niall asked me.
“Yeah, thanks for the help lads.”
“No worries.” Liam tap me on my back.
“Hah! Be sure you treat her well or else I’ll slap your precious face.” Harry says.
“Nah, you don’t have to do that… I’m serious with you sister.”
“Haha, good luck.” Harry hugged me.
“Zayn, it’s 5:30 already. You should go now.” Louis says.
“Okay, thanks. I’ll be back.”
“Are you ready?” I asked Viktoria.
“Yeah, but where are we going? You look so formal in that suit. I think I have to change.”
“You don’t have to change. You still look beautiful.”
“Okay, let’s go.” She laughed.
We arrive in a grassy place. And there’s no light. All I can see is the stars in the sky.
“Wait, Zayn. What are we doing here? Eat the grass? Or read incantion from an old magic book?”
“Of course not.” Zayn laughed at me.
He press a button near the lamp post.
“Oh my god! It’s beautiful!” I freaked out a bit.
“The lads helped me to prepare this .”
“Really? Wow, you guys are awesome.”
“Thanks.” He looked flattered.
“Did Harry cooked this?” the taste is familiar to my tongue.
“Yeah. Cause I can’t cook.” He laughed.
Oh god. I think I’m addicted to his laughs. It’s a kind of relaxation to my nerves.
“He’s good at that thing not like me.”
“Even if you can’t cook delicious foods like haz, I still love you from the bottom of my stomach.”
“You know, you could make me laugh in every words you say.” I was laughing while looking at the stars.
Suddenly I heard someone playing the guitar. Then I saw Niall and the rest of the lads.
Zayn stood up and join the boys. He holds a microphone. Wait… is he going to sing? OMG!
He started to sing the chorus part of the song, wait. I know that song, that’s Let me love you by Mario.
“You should let me love you. Let me the one to give you everything you want and need. Baby, good love and protection make
me your selection show me the way love suppose to be. Baby You should let me love you…” After the song he kneel on the grass and gave me a bouquet of roses.
I saw the lads holding a cardboard with “WILL YOU MY GIRLFRIEND VIKTORIA?” on it.
“Will you be my girlfriend, Viktoria?” he’s smiling from ear to ear.
“Uhm… Lemme think for a second.. Hmm… YES?”
“YES!? It’s a Yes!!!!”
“Congrats bro.” Harry said.
“Let’s have a party!!!” Louis yelled.
“Woohooo! Whoop Whoop!” Niall screamed.
“Welcome to the club, Zayn.”
“Club? What club?” Zayn look puzzled.
“1d lads in love club!” Liam said.
“Let’s Party!” Niall yelled.
“DJ Malik, drop the beat!” Harry screams at my ear.
“Ouch! You’re such a…”
“Nothing, haha. Weirdo!”
I gotta feeling playing on the background.
Zayn whispered something to my ear.
“I love you, no matter what happens. I will still love you, Viktoria.”
“I love you, too.”
After saying those words his lips landed on mine.
