It was July 12, 2013. Cat and I were getting dressed to go to the show/ When I told Cat that I got tickets to the show, she was so excited. She screamed as loud as a banshee. She wore my red shirt that said 'Welcome to the darkside, are you surprised that we don't have cookies?', black skinny jeans, and black TOMS. I wore my red One Direction shirt, white shorts, and my white Nike high tops.
I checked the time. 7:00. Damn, i thought. We should be gone by now. I helped Cat finish curling her straight blonde hair. "Ok, I think we are good. Just let me grab the tickets and backstage passes, and we'll leave." I say.
"Ok," she says. I get the tickets and backstage passes. I hand Cat her ticket and help her put on her backstage pass. I put my ticket in my pocket and my backstage pass over my neck. "Ok, lets go!" I say.
Cat gets in the passenger seat of my Camaro. I get in the drivers side and start the car. Instead of a roar, it purrs. "Mmm," Cat hums. I laugh. I hear this sound all the time now ever since Cat, in thanks to me for getting the tickets, had my engine renovated. I pulled out of the driveway and drove down the street.
We walk up to the door, show the security guard our tickets and backstage passes, and go inside. Another guard escorts us to them. He tells us they'll be ready in a minute. We say "Ok" in unison. After a while of waiting, I decide to start a dance. The inbetweeners dance, to be exact. After 4 turns, I change to the La Boite dance. We finish, laugh, enjoying the memories flooding back, and turn around to see four British boys and one Irishman grinning at us. I blush.
"Nice dancing," Harry says.
Out of nowhere, I say, "Lets see you do that curly," in a seductive voice. But, surprisingly, I don't regret it.
The rest of the boys "Oooooooo." I could easily hear Louis the most. I decide to taunt him too.
"Oh, you think your off the hook, prank boy?" I say. "Lets see you and curly get up and dance together." That's when Niall laughs the goofiest laugh I've ever heard. "Do you want to dance too, Mr. Nandos."
"No, ma'am," Niall says with a grin.
"Ok, we'll dance together," I hear Louis say. I try my best not to laugh at Harry's surprised look. "Why not, mate?" Louis says to Harry.
"Well, lets entertain the ladies." Harry says.
I back up to give them room. The rest of the boys do, too. I play Grease Lighting from the movie Grease. Louis grins back at me. I go and grab a seat next to Niall, and Cat sits next to me, smiling big.
Niall whispers in my ear, "I can't wait to see this. Its gonna be great! Good job coming up with the nicknames, by the way. Brings back memories."
"Thanks, Mr. Nandos." I whisper in his ear. He smiles big. I restart the song and say "Begin!" Then, I saw the funniest dance moves of my life. While Harry did the sprinkler, Louis did hip thrusts, the hop-twist-and-move-like-an-idiot-dance. Niall and I were laughing so hard, we were on each others shoulders, laughing and crying at the same time.
"Okay! Okay! You win!" I say between breaths from laughing. "I haven't laughed like that in so long!" I say.
"So, what's our prize?" Harry asks.
"Nothing!" Cat yells.
I laugh even harder, at this point I'm holding my sides and my head is in Niall's lap. He doesn't seem to care, though. He seems to like it. I don't question it, but I do get up, tears streaming down my face from laughing/crying. "Oh my god, that was awesome!" I say.
"I could tell," Niall says, glancing down at his lap, then at me.
"Oh, sorry about that," I blush.
"I didn't mind. I've never seen someone laugh that hard before," he says.
"I've never laughed that hard before, so its a first for both of us," I say.
"Want to get something to eat?" Niall asks me.
"Sure," I answer.
We walk down a hall and turn right into a big room full of every food known to man, including a chocolate fountain. A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN?! I think to myself.
"Oh, my god. A chocolate fountain," Niall says.
"You didn't know about it?" I ask.
"No, I wasn't allowed in until you and your friend got here," He says
"Oh. Well, you know what could be good?" I ask.
"No, what?" he answers.
"Chocolate covered gummy worms and gummy bears," I say.
"Yes," he says. We get to work. I grab 40 gummy worms, and Niall grabs 40 gummy bears. We grab a bowl, fill it with chocolate, and pour our gummy bears and gummy worms in. Niall and I each take a gummy worm and eat them. "BEST SNACK EVER!" he yells.
We start to walk back, when Niall says for me to wait. He runs off and comes back five minutes later with four cans of silly string two for each of us to surprise attack the boys and Cat.
"By the way, I never did get your name," he says as we walk down the hallway with the silly string behind our backs.
"It's Makena," I say.
We get back and act casual for about five seconds. Then we spray everyone, creating a huge mess. By the time we were done, everyone was covered in silly string, except for Niall and I. When Louis, Harry, Liam, and Zayn went to change, Niall helped me pick off silly string from Cat. When the boys got back, everything was clean again like nothing happened.
"Niall, we have to be out on the stage in five minutes," Liam says.
"Ok. See you guys after the show!" Niall says and runs down the hallway. Liam stays and asks me to speak with him alone. "Ok...." I say and tell Cat to go to our spots. After she's gone, I ask Liam what he wanted to talk about.
"You know the silly string attack you just made on us with Niall?" he asks.
"Yeah. What about it?"
"Well, we figured that if you have that much fun with him and make him laugh that you could help him when he's sad when we're on tour."
I try to comprehend what he's saying. What does he want? I think to myself.
"Anyways, what I'm trying to say is, that if you and your friend want to, you can come on tour with us."
"R-really? That would be awesome!" I choke out.
"So, it's a deal?"
"Its a deal. When do you leave to go to the next gig?"
"In two days."
"Ok, we'll be packed. Could we spend the night in the hotel with you the night before you leave?"
"Ok, see you tomorrow! Bye."
I head to our seats up bye the stage and tell Cat what we're gonna do. She screams right on cue.
