Austen looked herself over in the mirror, this was it, the night of the concert in Atlanta when she would get to meet One Direction. This was her fifth concert, she was dedicated, she knew everything about the boys, especially Niall, who was her favorite. It was almost time for her to leave the hotel, even if it was only noon, she ran her fingers through her long blonde hair and smiled at herself. She looked down at her outfit, a pink tank top and dark denim shorts, she then sprayed herself with her vanilla body spray then left the bathroom.
”Finally you’re done.” Austen’s sister, Darcy said smiling.
”And you’re going like that?” Austen asking looking her over.
Darcy had a Ramones t shirt on and skinny jeans with holes in the knees, her long dark hair in a messy bun on top of her head. She usually didn’t care what she looked like because everyone judged her.
”Better than how Shay dresses sometimes,” Darcy said then laughed a little,
”I guess you’re right, but still you could have looked nicer, we’re in the very front like at the stage. We’ll get to touch them.” Austen said her voice getting higher pitched from excitement.
”You’re crazy, I swear, but I’m glad I could be here with you. Especially to see them, I just love Harry and his curls.” Darcy said then sighed.
”Don’t forget our backstage passes.” Austen reminded Darcy.
Darcy grabbed the backstage passes and her phone, she looked at Austen and smiled, “Ready?”
”Sure am, let’s go.” Austen said as she grabbed her phone.
They walked out of the hotel room and stepped into the elevator, the waited as it slowly made its way to the lobby, when the doors slid open Austen looked out to see a crowd of people, screaming holding up signs, Darcy looked out and her eyes went wide,
”Did I miss something when we got a room here or..?” Darcy said looking over at Austen.
”I don’t think so. You don’t think….Is one direction in the same hotel as us?” Austen asked as she looked around the space for the quickest way to the front desk.
Austen grabbed Darcy’s arm and pulled her through people and up to the front desk, “Is One Direction staying at this hotel?” Austen asked the woman standing in front of the computer who’s eyes were occupied by the computer screen.
”I’m not allowed to answer that question.” the woman replied with a look of annoyance on her face.
”I’m staying in this hotel, and I would like to know for the safety..of…my sister.” Austen said thinking of an excuse quickly.
”Room number and name?”
”714, Austen and Darcy Lambert.”
”I found you, for safety precautions I suggest you take the stairs and since there is a concert tonight, make sure you show your room key when you come to the doors.” The woman said then turned around to some papers.
Austen looked at Darcy then walked away from the front desk to a spot behind a huge plant in a vase, Austen pulled her phone out of her pocket and texted their friend Shay, “We’re staying in the same hotel as One Direction, can you believe it? call you after the concert and meet n’ greet.” then stuffed her phone into her back pocket.
”Sometimes I wonder how we’re even related,” Darcy said then laughed.
”Why do you say that?”
”We’re hiding behind a huge plant, not to mention you lied about me needing to be safe or whatever.”
Austen laughed, “I suggest we leave now so we can buy like a shirt or something.”
Darcy sighed and shook her head, this time she was holding Austen’s hand, she pulled her through a huge crowd of people a couple who asked if they saw the boys, ignoring them they pushed themselves through probably about 200 people, then walked down the sidewalk until they found the big flashing sign that said ‘One Direction, sold out. Tonight!”. Continuing they walked past little crowds of people waiting to see something exciting and found their way to a merchandise table, they both looked over all the items and sighed, they could make home made shirts better than the ones being sold.
”It’s about time they consider opening the doors, I need to see these boys.” Austen said impatiently.
”We didn’t have to come at 12 in the afternoon when the show starts at 630 if that’s what you’re implying.” Darcy said as she looked around to see if the boys would walk by or something.
After waiting for about thirty more minutes, doors were officially opened, people with scanners and security were outside, security checked bags then people with scanners, scanned the tickets and told people to have a wonderful night and enjoy. Austen and Darcy walked quickly through the building to find the stage to get to their spots.
The lights went off, the only light was from everyone’s cell phones, Austen and Darcy watched the stage and waited impatiently for them to go onto the stage, everyone was screaming, soon Austen and Darcy were too, a little movie played then a count down, as soon as the one disappeared, Harry was running onto the stage Niall, Zayn, Liam, and Louis following. Austen was screaming her lungs out and the concert just started. After singing two songs, Niall, Harry, and Louis jumped off the stage and were singing in front of Austen and Darcy, Austen stopped screaming since Niall was right in front of her with a microphone, she smiled the biggest she could and he took her hand and sung to her, then Harry looked over at Darcy and winked, then they ran back onto the stage. Austen was practically shaking, she looked at Darcy stunned. The night continued with the boys constantly jumping off stage, staying around Austin and Darcy then being on stage acting like goofs. When the night came to an end, they said how happy they were to have dedicated fans and said thanks. They walked off stage, and the lights came back on.
”Where do we go?” Darcy said looking around,
”TO PAUL!” Austen screamed.
”You need to chill if we’re going to meet them.”
”I CAN’T HEAR THOUGH.”
”Oh god.” Darcy said then said and walked to the nearest security guard, “uh, hi, we have backstage passes,”
”This way.” The guard interrupted and walked down a hallway where there were at least 3 doors, “Please wait, someone will come out in a second.”
The guard walked away, then Darcy looked at Austen, “Austen. Are you okay now?” she whispered to see if she could hear by now.
”Yeah, I can finally hear. I’m so excited.”
”Me too, you have no idea.”
About ten minutes passed and a door opened, Austen and Darcy were too much into each others conversation to realize someone was standing there, Austen looked over Darcy’s shoulder and gasped her hand flew over her mouth. Darcy turned around to see Harry standing about two feet in front of her not wearing anything he was wearing on stage, it actually looked like he was in pajama’s. She smiled at him.
”You can now come in.” He said with his british accent that made girls melt.
Darcy followed him, with Austen right behind her. When they walked into the room they noticed all of the boys were dressed as if they were about to sleep. Austen let out a quiet giggle and looked at each of them.
”Ready for pictures?” Liam asked looking at the two girls.
They both nodded and walked over to the boys, Austen pulled out her phone and handed it to the security guard that was in the room with them, Darcy did the same.
”How come you didn’t bring cameras?” Niall asked his irish accent sounding perfect since he was standing next to Austen.
”Too much to carry. Plus, our phone’s take good quality pictures.” Austen answered him quietly.
”You girls are smart.” He said then put his arm around Austen’s shoulders, Liam stood on the other side of her with Zayn next then Darcy, then Harry and Louis on the end.
”3..2..1.” The guard counted down before taking two pictures, a normal one then a funny one.
They got their phones back then Niall grabbed Austen’s phone, and started taking random pictures of himself, then grabbed her arm and pulled her into him and started taking more pictures, soon enough Zayn, Liam, and Louis were photo bombing the pictures, Austen’s face was bright red when Niall handed back her phone.
”What’re you blushing for?” He asked all bubbly.
”Honestly, I don’t know.” Austen answered, then laughed.
Austen looked over at Harry and Darcy who seemed to be hitting it off and taking pictures, she turned back around to Niall in her face smiling big.
”Can I see your phone?” He asked almost about to jump up and down.
”Sure…” Austen said then handed him her phone,
She watched him go to the dial screen and do something then go to her messages, then he handed her phone back. She looked down and looked through her messages, he didn’t reply to anyone. So she looked up at him.
”I never did ask, what is your name?”
”Austen,” she said blushing, she hated her name.
”I think that’s a cool name, ‘specially for a girl.” Niall said smiling, he pulled his phone out of his pocket and did something then stuffed it back into his pocket.
Darcy and Harry walked back over to where everyone else was.
”So where are you two girls from?” Louis asked out of no where.
”We’re from Ohio.” Darcy said smiling.
”Isn’t that a long way from here?” Liam asked
”Yeah, this is the fifth concert of yours. The one we finally got to meet you guys at.” Austen said then smiled and covered her face as she blushed.
”I think that is amazing.” Zayn said and smiled,
”So where are you staying?” Niall asked looking at Austen,
”The Hilton hotel just around the corner.” Darcy answered for her sister.
”Really? No way, that’s where we’re staying.” Harry said excitedly.
Austen and Darcy smiled big, and looked at their phones. They had been talking to the boys for 45 minutes and already almost felt like best friends.
”Time for you girls to go.” The security guard said.
Austen and Darcy hugged the boys one last time then left the room, Austen looked at her sister and all she could do was smile. They were almost out of the building when Austen checked her pocket for the hotel room key. She put her hand in her pocket, it wasn’t there.
”Darcy, I lost the room key.” She said after she stopped walking.
”It was in my pocket with my phone, my phone case must have made it stick and fall out.”
Five minutes later Austen’s phone was ringing, she looked at the screen and the name was Niall, she looked at Darcy then put the phone up to her ear, “Hello?” she asked,
”Austen! it’s Niall.” he said all happily, “I found what I’m guessing to be your room on the floor, if you meet me on the 6th floor at the hotel I can give it back to you.”
”Oh thank you. Text me when you get there.” she said then smiled at Darcy. “Bye.” she said then hung up the phone.
”Who was that?” Darcy asked,
”Niall put his number in my phone and called to tell me he found the key and they’re on the 6th floor. Can you believe it?”
”No way. I’ll call Shay when we get to the hotel, let’s hurry and get there though.” Darcy said then continued walking, Austen following. Both of them smiling, This was just the beginning of things.
