The Start of Something New
I scanned through my contacts trying to find my best friend's number. As I was just about to reach her name, my phone vibrated furiously, indicating I have a call. It was in fact my best friend, Ali. I tapped the 'accept call' button and pressed the phone up against my ear.
"Hello?" I asked.
"Hey, hun! I was wondering, do you want to do something tonight? This club on main street just opened up and I wanted to check it out," Ali replied.
"Yeah, that's a great idea!" I said delighted. "What time do you want me to pick you up?"
I hung up the call and dashed for my closet. I scanned my selection of dresses and finally found the perfect soft pink dress. I slipped it on with matching flats and headed to my makeup table. I did my makeup a nice natural look with a touch of bright pink lip gloss. I curled my long black hair into loose ringlets and grabbed a small black shoulder purse. I hung it over my shoulder and dashed out my bedroom door.

I strolled up to Ali's front door and knocked anxiously. She immediately answered in a dark purple dress with black heels. Her brown hair was pulled into a tight pony with a sparkly rhinestone hair tie.
"Ready to go?" I asked excited.
"Of course!" she pulled out a CD from behind her an handed it to me. "I made this for you! Are you going to listen to everyday?" she said laughing.
"Yeah, of course! Thanks Ali," I said hugging her. We skipped to the car and hopped in. I immediately pushed the CD into the player and blasted the volume. I started the car by putting the keys in the ignition and turned them. The car roared to life as I lowered the volume on the radio.
"Sorry Ali, but that is too loud," I said laughing.
"Yeah, a bit," she chuckled agreeing.
I glanced at the CD case and wondered, who are these five young artists? The name of the band wasn't on the cover; Ali probably just stuck a picture in the case.
"Hey Ali, who are these boys?" I was staring at their faces as I noticed, there was one boy that caught my eye.
"Oh, that's One Direction. They are amazing," she said tap-tap-tapping on her phone.
"What's his name?" I said pointing to the boy with a perfect brown hair, beautiful blue eyes, and a mesmerizing smile. When I had first laid eyes on him, I was just blushing. Now, it looked like I had smeared bright red lipstick on my cheeks. Ali ignored my question, glanced up, and stared my flushed face. Instead of teasing me, she simply asked who was my favorite.
"That one," I said without taking my finger what from the CD cover.
She smirked. "That's Louis. My favorite's Niall,"
She pointed him out and I immediately realized that he's Ali's type. We drove about ten more minutes and arrived in the city. I parked the car on the side of the road and Ali and I made our way into the club. As soon as we got into the building, Ali started drinking. That meant I have to be sober all night just to keep her safe. I didn't mind much because I hate that feeling when I wake up in the morning after a night of drinking. I was about to ask the bar tender for a water when someone bumped into me.
"Sorry love," the person whispered into my ear. Wow, he must really be drunk. I glanced over at Ali who was dancing with a tall man that had really nice blonde hair. They were going totally crazy and laughing when I realized, that was Niall from the CD! Ali was dancing with her celebrity crush and she probably won't even remember meeting him. Niall didn't seem like he had a drink or anything, so maybe he'd slip his number to her or something. I turned around in my seat and faced the bar tender.
"Can I please have a water?" I asked politely.
"Of course, hun," He said. He passed me a bottled water as the man who bumped into me sat down beside me. I twisted the green cap to my water and took a sip. The man then turned around and I almost immediately recognized him.
"Sorry I bumped into you earlier, love," he said smiling. I remembered those perfect eyes, hair, and smile. Louis from One Direction was sitting to the left of me apologizing for accidentally bumping into me. Is this really happening?
"Two cocktails please," Louis asked nicely.
"Coming right up sir," he gave Louis and I our drinks and sped off to another customer.
"So gorgeous, what's your name?" Louis asked sipping his drink.
"Cara," I said blushing. "I kind of already know yours.."
"So you've heard my music then?" he asked happily.
"Yeah, you are a really talented singer," I said giggling.
"Why thank you, love," he then coughed into his left elbow and smiled at me before turning to the bar tender.
"May I trouble you for a bucket, mate?" Louis asked.
The bar tender eyed him but gave him a bucket. Almost immediately Louis practically shoved his face into the bucket. I rubbed his back gently as he practically threw up his whole stomach.
"Are you alright?" I asked worried as he picked his head up. "Do you want me to take you to the hospital?"
He was just about to answer when he used the bucket once again. He held his head up for a short time before I thought I was safe to wipe his face. I grabbed a napkin and started cleaning his face off. He was making funny faces at me as I started hysterically laughing.
"Love, would you mind calling me a taxi?" he asked with a pale face.
"No, that'll take too long. I'll drive you myself," I offered.
"Love, I don't want to trouble-"
"Nonsense," I said grasping his hand. He held on tight as I made my way over to Niall and Ali. After I told them, Niall offered to give Ali a ride back.
"Thank you, Niall," I said.
"Of course!" he said giving me a hug. "Thank you for taking Louis,"
"No problem," We walked through the front door and dashed for my car. After strapping Louis in the passenger seat, I sped off to the nearest hospital. The whole hour Louis was cracking jokes, making me laugh uncontrollably the entire way.
"Thanks again Cara for driving me," he said eyes closed and resting his head on the head rest. "I really appreciate everything you've done for me tonight,"
"Of course, Louis," I said and smiled at him.
We soon arrived at the hospital and I checked Louis in. The nurse told me I was right to bring Louis in so quick. Otherwise, he would've been severely ill. He would be let go the next morning so I decided to stay the night at the hospital. I texted my Mom and she said it was fine.
As I strolled to his room the next morning, I thought about how last night would not believable to any of my other friends besides Ali. As I approached his door, I gently turned the ice cold knob.
I stepped into the room quietly just in case he was sleeping. He was, in fact. I pulled a chair over silently and sat beside him. Louis' eyes fluttered open and the corners of his lips curled to a gorgeous genuine smile.
"Hello, love," he said groggily.
"Hey, Lou. How are you feeling?" I asked.
He sighed. "Better. But I would feel amazing if you gave me your phone for a minute,"
I eyed him giggling. "do you want to play a game or something?"
"Please?" he begged. I handed him my iPhone as he immediately starts tapping away. When he handed it back to me, I noticed I had a new contact. 'Louis the Tommo Tomlinson', he named his contact. I blushed brightly and smiled a Louis. He passed me his phone and I punched in my number.
* * *
As I look back on that day, I realized how much has changed between Louis and I. After that day, we became great friends. We would text and call each other every day and talk for hours on end about absolutely nothing. Our relationship stayed in the friends zone for awhile until he got the courage to tell me, he liked me more than a friend. After he told me, I immediately wrapped my arms around his neck and pressed my lips against his. After that day, I started to like him more and more as we started going on dates. It was like a veil had been lifted from our gaze allowing us to connect even more. We've been dating for quite sometime now, and I couldn't be happier.
I was sitting in our flat when I heard the door open and close. I dashed up from watching the telly, and met him at the door. In his hand was a box of warm double cheese pizza and hot spicy wings. I smiled, took the pizza box, and gave him a quick peck on the cheek.
"How'd you know I like this kind of pizza?" I asked sarcastically.
"Love, we've been dating for a year. I think I know what pizza topping you prefer," he laughed.
We took a seat on the couch and dug into our food. When we finished, he switched off the television and looked me deep in my blue eyes.
"Did I ever tell you how much I love your ice blue eyes?" he asked.
I blushed. "You're the best Lou,"
He smiled and gave me a quick peck on the lips. "Love, I've been meaning to ask you something for quite sometime now," He pulled me into his lap and told me to close my eyes. After about a few minutes, he whispered in my ear, "Okay, love. You can open your angelic eyes,"
I blushed and slowly fluttered my eyes open. As I focused my gaze on Louis' face, his eyes darted downward. As my eyes followed his direction, I saw a beautiful diamond ring.
"Cara, if you're not ready-"
I pressed my lips against his, wrapping my arms around his neck. He laughed through the kiss and hugged me back.
"Is that a yes?" he asked.
"Yes! Yes! Yes!" I said kissing his cheek. "I love you, Louis,"
He chuckled. "Love you too, Cara,"
