*****JADE POV*****

I ran to the door, about to fling it open, anxious to see him again, to hear his voice again, when a strong arm wrapped around my waist and pulled me back from the door.

"Jade, you can't do that. He doesn't know who you are, let us at least introduce you." Harry said cautiously as he held me back.

"What are you talking about? How do you know him?" I asked incredulously. This can't be happening, there is no way this is happening.

"He's our manager? You know, Paul, the one who was going to pick us up." Harry added, and my eyes widened in shock.

"But I... H-he's m-my..." I stuttered, finding it suddenly hard to breathe. Liam gave me a curious look, shrugged, and opened the door to such a familiar smiling face that made my heart ache. I couldn't believe he was really here, standing right in front of me.

"Hello boys, ready for rehearsals?" he asked in his deep voice which hasn't changed in the whole year he was gone. His eyes travelled around the boys, until they finally rested on me, and I saw my own surprise mirrored in his eyes. "Jade?" he asked, taking a step towards me. Harry tensed up behind me, his eyebrows raised in confusion, and the other boys all had the same expression as him.

"Dad?" I asked, my voice sounding hoarse. I couldn't believe he was actually here, standing in front of me, looking the same as he had a year ago.

"What..." he trailled of, clearing his throat a little. "What are you doing here?"

"I could ask you the same thing..." I mumbled, still surprised. He left my mom, Max and I so he could manage a world-famous British/Irish boy band? Didn't see that one coming...

"I know you must have a lot of questions, but I can't answer them right now. We have to get to rehearsals, and I promise I'll answer anything you want to know when we get there." he replied, starting to usher the boys out the door. I followed slowly behind them, weary. Parked outside by the gate was a huge red tour bus with two levels and One Direction painted on the sides. I rolled my eyes, they didn't know the meaning of laying low. The boys all cheered and rushed into the bus, while I just stood outside it, not sure of what I should do. Niall's head poked out of the door with a smile.

"Come on Jade, we have to get going!" And he disappeared just as soon as he had come, causing me to smile as I climbed the steps of the bus. My mouth opened as I took in the sights around me: a mini kitchen that included a full refrigerator and microwave; a living room with a couch, a recliner, a huge flat screen tv, and a Wii; and a little table towards the middle of the bus where I'm guessing they eat.

"Come on, I'll give you the grand tour." Niall said, taking my hand and leading me around the bus. He showed me the kitchen, opening up the fridge to show me what was inside, and then taking me to the couch and demanding I jump on it to test its bounciness. We then went to the bathroom, which wasn't as small as I expected. I guess when you have five guys living in one bus you kind of need a bigger bathroom. "This will be your bathroom." Niall commented, and I widened my eyes. Mine? Does this mean they have another one? "There's another bathroom upstairs. I don't see why you should have to share with us." Wow, he must read minds... He then took me upstairs to where all the boys were lounging on their bunk beds. Thankfully, there were three bunk beds, meaning six beds. Harry was on a top bunk with Louis below him, while Zayn and Liam were both at the other bottom bunks. "This one up here is mine." Niall commented, pointing to the bunk above Zayn's. "Are you okay with sleeping in the one above Liam?" he asked, unsure whether or not I would want a top bunk.
