The Perks Of Being A Horan
Chapter 3 - Okay, It's Defiantly Real!
Chapter 3 - Okay, It's Defiantly Real!
I stood there in silence as the words echoed through my brain... I HAVE to be dreaming. This CANNOT be happening.
"Hello?" Harry asked again, but I couldn't do anything... Just stand there in his arms staring into his beautiful brown eyes. "Are you okay?"
"Ye-Yeah..." I stuttered as the room went black and I felt my body get heavier.
"NIALL HELP ME!" I heard someone shout.
"NIALLLLLL!!" I screamed at the top of my lungs as I woke up in a very unfamiliar place.
"Woooahhh! Shannon calm down." He shushed me as he jumped on the bed grabbing my shoulders.
"Where am I? I just had the strangest dream Niall!" I said still not fully aware of my surroundings.
"Why? What happened?" He said with a weird smirk on his face.
I was confused at the look but I continued anyway. I quickly moved so that I was at the bottom of the bed facing away from the rest of the room.
"You where saying something to me about Harry sharing our room with us when we go on tour and I told you that I hated you and then I ran to the bathroom and you where starting at me, like in this proper weird way and then the next thing I crashed into someone, and they caught me and it was Harry and I couldn't do anything I just stood there and sta-" I had to stop talking as the sound of
Niall's belly laughter was too much to concentrate over.
"Niall.. What are you laughing at?"
He said nothing...
"Niall..." I questioned... Suddenly looking around the room. It was a hotel... Oh god no... Tell me it's not...
He again said nothing and just extended his arm out towards the area behind me. I turned so fast that I fell off the bed. This time there was not one, but two belly laughs coming from the room. I popped my head up over the bed so you could only see me eyes and sure enough I came face to face with Harry Styles who had moved from his previous position in the doorway to next to Niall on the bed.
"Yeah..Why did you just stand there and stare at me? Well, before you fainted anyway." Harry giggled with a wink.
"W-What I fainted...?"
"Yeah you did..." Niall joined in, "It was quite funny actually."
"Niall. Bathroom. Now." I said sternly walking out of the room with the little dignity I had left.
He followed, saying something to Harry that I didn't quite catch. He walked into the bathroom to find me sat on the bath, head in my hands, completely freaking out.
"That really happened didn't it?" I say trying to catch my breath.
"Yeah it did... I'm sorry Shannon but that was just classic."
"Niall this is NOT funny!"
"Why not? C'mon you fainted for Christ's sake!"
"Niall..." I began looking very serious. "It's real... Oh my god its real..."
"Hah- Wait what? Oh shit really?" He was now very serious too. "It's a good job I told him you have a blood sugar problem and you faint when you get shocked."
"But I don't have a-Ohhh... Thank you Niall! So I can walk back in there without him know I have a huge crush?"
"Yes you can, thanks to the best brother in the world!"
"Thank you!" I said pulling Niall into possibly the tightest hug he's ever gotten from me. "I love you!"
"I love you too Squirt." He answered as we both walked out of the bathroom together.
The view I had when I walked into the room was utter perfection. Harry was laid on the bed, his loose white shirt falling over his body like nothing I've ever seen before. He looked up as he heard the ruckus of me Niall tumbling into the room.
"So, can I introduce myself properly now?" Harry asked.
"Haha, do you really need to introduce yourself?"
"No... But I like too..." He said getting up off the bed, bringing his body towards me.
"Hmmm. Okay I suppose I could let you..."
"Okay here goes... Hello Lovely, I'm Harry, one fifth of One Direction... And who are you?"
Oh God, even his voice does things to me... Yes.. It's final, this tour is going to kill me.
"Well hello there Harry, I'm Shannon, one half of the Horan siblings."
He let out a little giggle before answering.
"Nice to meet you Shannon."
"You too Harry." I said, again finding myself lost in his eyes, however this time was different. He stared back, not looking away in fear or awkwardness.
We where stood there for what seemed like an eternity, until a little cough snapped us out of... Well whatever it was. Both our head snapped to the right, to find Niall stood starting at us, arms crossed, looking quite stern. He showed a small smile before he began laughing and talking at the same time.
"Okay, okay, if you two have stopped flirting can we please go get some food? The guys are waiting for us at Nandos!"
"We weren't flirting!" Harry almost shouted as he rubbed the back of his neck.
"Yeah sure you weren't... Now let's go!" He said motioning us both towards the door.
No-one really spoke on the journey to Nandos and I was surprisingly calm seen as I am about to meet the rest of One Direction. 1 down 3 go... You can do this. We took Harry's car, obviously because driving a Range Rover looks a lot better than driving a van. It took us about twenty minutes to drive from the hotel to the famous chicken restaurant my glorious brother cannot live without. We walked in to find Zayn, Louis and Liam sat at a table right at the back. All three of them stood up when they caught site of us. I have to say, walking toward those boys was one of the most exciting moments of my life and I honestly do not know how I contained myself.
Zayn was the first one to greet me. "Hey Shannon!" He smiled pulling me into a very unexpected hug.
"Haha! Hello Zayn, nice to meet...." I didn't even get chance to finish before the infamous Louis Tomlinson was inches from my face with a smile bigger than his own face.
"Hiiiiiiiiii!" He squealed. Again I was being pulled into another hug.
"Hello Louis, are you alright?" I asked with a confused look.
"Oh don't worry he's always like that..." The last of the boys said.
As I looked up to Liam's...
Liam's... Oh god I can't even think straight...He was A LOT more attractive in person, I mean I knew he was hot as hell, but seriously Niall you trying to kill me?
All thoughts of Harry completely left my mind.
"Hey, I'm Liam..." he smiled softly.
"Hi, I'm Shannon.." I said returning the smile.
He held his arms out, I looked at him confused.
"Well? Don't I get a hug like everyone else..."
The way he spoke was just extraordinary. I didn't say anything, just walked into his arms, they found themselves comfortably around my waist and my body when into a mini state of shock and I shivered, not noticing until after that he slightly shivered too.
"Woahh, what was that? I asked quietly trying to make sure no-one else heard.
"I don't know." He replied copying my tone. "Static shock?"
I shrugged my shoulders and Liam motioned for me to sit down. All the boy had already found their seats which left me and Liam with the end seats. Which to be honest, I didn't mind as I was sat opposite LIAM PAYNE! We all ordered food and engaged in very funny, sometimes awkward conversation. After the meal had finished, we all made our way back to the hotel. I am still not completely sure how 6 of us managed to fit in Harry's car but it happened and we got back to the hotel. Harry, Niall and I all said goodbye to the other three lads and made our way up to our room.
*BEEP BEEP* My phone sang as we unlocked the door. What, who the hell could that be?
"Hey Shannon, It's Liam. I just wanted to say I had a really good time talking to you today, and it was really nice to finally meet the famous Horan sister.
"Niall... How has Liam got my number?" I deeply questioned.
"Ohh... Yeah about that... He asked for it when we went to order the food, I was a bit confused but I gave it him anyway... I mean it kinda makes sense, you are going to be living with him and the rest of us for 10 months..."
"Ahh okay.. Wait what? Living with? You didn't mention this." I shivered, my body slight going into shock for the THIRD time today.
"Oh yeahh... I might have forgot to mention, management put an extra two bunks in the bus... One for you, and one for Kari." He said with a beaming smile on his face.
Oh great, I'm going to be living with Liam for 10 months... Wait a minute why am I thinking about Liam?
I shook the thought out of my head.
"Oh my god! Kari's coming? I don't even want to ask how you managed to swing that but AHHHH! I haven't seen her in months! I miss her!"
We were all settled in the room by the time this conversation finished. Kari is Niall's girlfriend by the way, they've been together since they were 16 and oh lord they are the cutest!
I went to the kitchen to grab a cup of tea when I realised I hadn't replied to Liam. I grabbed my phone from my back pocket and began typing.
"Hey Liam, Shannon here.. although you know that cause you have my number and texted me first... Anyway... Yeah, it was nice talking to you too, I really enjoyed it. Speak to you soon :) xx"
I sent the text before I checked what I'd written. Oh shit! Did I really just send what I think I did. I checked the message. Yes I did... Jesus Shannon, why do you have to be so awkward?! I walked over to my bedroom in the suite shouting night to the guys before I walked in.
"Night!" I heard them both shout before I closed the door. Flopping down on the bed my phone went off again. I unlocked it, dreading what I was going to read...
"Haha, that's funny, and glad you had as good of a time as I did. Speak soon? Can't we speak now? :( xx"
OH MY GOD HE WANTS TO KEEP TALKING... Woah, calm down you're not 12 anymore Shannon.
I hated my brain sometimes, I really did. I typed back feeling really bad but I was just so tired.
"Ahhh, we could but I'm just soooo tired from all the travelling and food today! I'll see you tomorrow anyway wont I? :) xx"
"Yeah, you will. Anyway Night Shannon! xx"
"Night Liam :) xx"
I hit send for the final time before falling softly to sleep, thinking about the amazing yet slightly confusing day I just experienced.
