Louisa's POV

I helped Nathan with his work, and in return, I went to Nathan's birthday party, which was good. I got a little drunk, but not as drunk as Nathan. He got totally smashed, and in his drunkenness, he kissed me, and since that night, I haven't seen him. At all.

I just assumed he was embarrassed, or I was that bad a kisser, that he couldn't face me the next day.

I wasn't phased by it, and I just continued to study hard, and aced my A-Levels, and I was offered a university place in London, which I'll be attending in 3 weeks time, and I'm mega excited!

I also worked all over the summer, not in Starbucks though.

Part of my photography course included being an official photographer for an event set up by the college, and from that, I've been paid to be the official photographer for people at their events, so I've been doing that all summer, and that's what I'm doing today.

I'm at a wedding today, taking photos of everyone, before, during, and after the ceremony.

I've already done the arrivals, and the ceremony, and I'm just about to take the outside photos of the bride and groom, along with their families. I'm just waiting for them to sort out where they're going to stand.

As I waited for them to sort themselves out, none other than Nathan Sykes came over to say hello.

"Hey stranger." He greeted.

"Hey, long time no see." I greeted back.

"How have you been?"

"I've been good. How about you?"

"Yeah, I've been alright. Moved house, and dropped out of college."

"Awww no. Why?"

"It was a trek and a half, and I tried to transfer to the local one, but I was rejected, so I just stopped going."

"That's a shame. You were doing so well, then you vanished."

"Yeah, well. We were practically at the end of the course anyway, so I weren't too fussed."

"Well, that could have been the difference between you getting signed or not."

"It won't have that much effect will it?"

"I don't know. I'm not a musician."

"But you took music in college?"

I smiled and paused the conversation, so I could take the photos, before returning to the talk.

"I did, but only because I needed something else to do, alongside the subjects I'd already chosen."

"What did you originally put down to take?"

"Drama, photography, history, and music."

"My mum's friend's daughter did the same subjects as you."

"Ah cool. So, do you know the couple getting married?"

"Not really. It's a mate's big sister's wedding. I've only met her once or twice."

"Then why are you here?"

"My mate was allowed to bring a plus one, as he didn't want to be on his own. Especially during the reception, so I said I would go with him, and keep him entertained."

"Fair enough."

"Do you know the happy couple?"

"No. They contacted me, after the college event, where I was the favourite photographer, and since then, I've been driving all over Gloucester, being the official photographer for all sorts of events."
