It's Gotta Be Her (Niall Horan Love Story)
Just another one of my One Direction love stories.

"Um, yes?" I answered back, though it sounded like more of a question. Jasmine was only older than me by a few minutes, since we were twins, but we didn't look alike. We were both fraternal twins.
Jasmine was the pretty, talented twin, and I was just...Valeria. She was an upcoming actress and did a few shows on popular kid shows like on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, but this month she won the part for some new movie that started filming in Ireland. Apparently they were going to do a remake of the fairy tale The Princess and the Pea.
"I kind of feel sorry for you," Jasmine said laughing now. I laughed back and began to shove my new school supplies into my backpack.
"Because you have to go to a new school all alone where they make you wear uniform," she said teasingly. I frowned, then slung on my backpack over my shoulders.
"Well I feel sorry for you too. You have to be homeschooled and that's even worse. No cute boys to look at or friends to make."
"Whatever, Mom said that our neighbor next door has a kid our age so technically I might not be missing out on any cute boys!" I rolled my eyes and grinned.
"Okay Jaz, whatever you say. I'm going to school now, good luck on your first day onset." I left our -temporary- home in Ireland and had no choice but to walk to school. Back home in California, I used to drive to school, so walking wasn't really my thing. The school I went to was supposed to be fairly small and I was anxious to get there. I was worried that I might not fit in or that people might ask too many questions about me. Not that I was a somebody.
The only thing comforting about moving to Ireland was the fact that I knew Niall from "One Direction" lived somewhere in this country. I was one of the few girls at my school who actually heard about the band and just being able to live in Ireland made me feel closer to them. I made it on time to school and went to the office to pick up my schedule. Some classes seemed really odd like "Irish History" for example, but they seemed pretty interesting.
My first class was a science one, which wasn't my strongest subject but I was decent at it, and when I walked in, I had no idea where to sit. Big black lab tables lined the walls and a few students gave me curious glances. Of course they had probably known each other since they were in diapers, living in this small town. A boy who was talking to some of his friends, stared at me a few times and I stood by the doorway, waiting for the teacher to possibly give me an assigned seat.
"There's an empty seat here," he shouted from across the room with a smile. I returned it and shyly walked over. His friends began to shove him teasingly and he brushed them aside. "Hi," he said with a grin.
"Hi," I said sitting inbetween the nice boy and another boy who seemed really close to him.
"What's your name?" his friend asked me.
"Valeria, but I like Valerie or Val," I said shrugging my shoulders.
"I don't think I've ever heard that name before, it's cool," his friend said with a smile. I don't know why I was being so friendly and talkative. At my old school I was the quiet girl and so nervous around boys!
"Yeah I guess, it was my grandma's name," I said laughing. His friend nodded his head and pointed at himself.
"Right, well I'm Sean and this is Ed," he said pointing to the nice boy. Ed smiled and blushed when I shook his hand.
"Nice to meet you both. I'm sorry but you look really familiar," I said studying Ed for a while. He laughed awkwardly and scratched his head.
"He ought to look familiar to you, that's the Ed Sheeran," Sean said in a mock-girly voice. The other boys laughed and so did I.
"Hmm, still not ringing a bell. But I have seen you before, this is very upsetting," I said clearly puzzled. Ed Sheeran. The name kind of did ring a bell...
"Where are you from again?" Sean asked wanting to end my thoughts.
"California, the States, America, the US, whatever you Irish people want to call it," I said with my thoughts a million miles away. Oh my gosh I needed someone to give me a clue. Wait a minute. Give me a clue. Give me a clue. " Give Me Love, you sing that don't you?!" I said excitedly. Ed blushed and laughed.
"Yeah that's me, about time you figured it out."
"Wait, aren't you a little too old to be going to school here?" I asked him.
"He's coming here to make up a few classes but really goes to Uni. Our school offers classes that his Uni doesn't have, so he comes here on some days," Sean said.
"Really? That's odd."
"Can we see your schedule?" Sean asked. I nodded my head and got out my school folder that had had a few pictures of One Direction on the cover....and mainly Niall. "Oh looky what we got here..." Sean said waggling his eyebrows. "Someone's got a crush on Niall Horan?"
I blushed a beet red and snatched my folder back. "No, I like them all."
"But you like Niall more," Ed persisted.
"No, I like them all equally. Niall has more photos because I, um, ....left the others at home," I lied.
"Hey Guys, can you believe I got stopped by the lady at the office for not tucking in my shirt?" I heard someone say behind me. Sean was all smiles and stared at me oddly and Ed was fighting a smile by biting his lip.
"Hey we have a new girl in class, her name is Valeria," Sean said.
"Oh hey, Val, is it okay if I call you that?" I turned around to glance at the boy after adjusting the items in my backpack and froze.
"..." Was all I could say. This was not happening to me. None of it felt real.
"Cat got your tongue?" the boy asked me with a laugh. Well I guess I should stop calling him "boy" since he was no stranger to me. This boy was Niall Horan.
Okay just because I had an itch to write this chapter, here's my new story. I'll try to keep up with it while I'm writing my Louis one, but maybe I'll just add another chapter after I'm done with the Louis one... I dunno know yet...so basically this is a "preview" of what's in store.
I had so much fun writing with Ed in it lol, his song "Give Me Love" has been stuck in my head this WHOLE day. What a lovely voice he has!
