I knock on the door and call out that room service is here. Tess and I each hold an armful of towels. Last night, after my threat, it took Tess less than three seconds to accept the job, just as I thought.

Tess glanced at me and gave me a strange look when we heard grumbling from the other side of the door. After a few seconds, it opened to reveal an old, pudgy, balding man in nothing but a bathrobe. I cringed.

"Here are the towels you requested." I smiled.

"Yes. Come in and put them in the bathroom." He replied in a deep, hoarse voice. Tess and I followed him in.

The place was a mess. There were beer bottles and pizza boxes strewn all over the place. And talk about a stench. I glanced at Tess and saw that her nose was wrinkled in disgust. This was gross!

 "Put them on the counter." He grumbled. I shared a confused look with Tess. He already had a pile of perfectly folded towels by the sink. What did he need these for? Tess and I set the towels down and smiled at the man.

"Is that all?" Tess asked.

He nodded and we took that as our cue to leave. I wish I would have just left without looking back. But I was stupid. I took one last glance at the man and gasped. He had taken his robe off. He stood there in nothing but a very small speedo. I spun around and quickly left the room. That was definitely something a never wanted to see.

As soon as the door shut, Tess turned to me, eyes wide and a horrified look on her face.

"Did you see.." She started.

"That." I finished nodding.

She shook her head as if trying to erase the image from her brain.

"That was horrid."  She whispered. I nodded in agreement. I never wanted to see anything like that again.

"So where are we off to next?" I smiled. Only I knew that we had our break next. Instead of going back to our room, though, she was going to meet our idols.

"Oh, just some other guy." I replied vaguely. Then I realized that if we went and hung out with the boys now, we'd have to sit around in our dress pants. I didn't want that.

"Actually, let's go change. Then we'll go see the last person on our list before we go have lunch." I pulled her towards the elevator. She just shrugged and let me drag her.

We quickly went to our rooms and changed into something more comfortable before I took her down to the floor right below ours. She didn't seem to to any notice of the fact that we were standing outside of the Presidential Suite.

I knocked on the door and waited. Hopefully they were there.

While we were waiting, I tried not to fangirl, knowing I was about to speak to One Direction again. Tess, on the other hand, was completely oblivious to what was about to happen.

The door opened -- without any arguing this time -- to reveal the curly haired boy.

"Oh hi!" He gave me a smile, which I returned. I was proud of myself for keeping my cool. I quickly glanced at Tess to see that her eyes were wide as she stared at Harry. She quickly composed herself and smiled.

"Come in!" Harry led us to the living room where we were yesterday. Liam was sitting on the sofa watching TV. He looked up when we sat down and smiled.

"Hey Lissa! Nice of you to come over again." He smiled.

"Thanks. Guys, this is Tessa." I motioned to her. She was smiling hugely.

"I'm a huge fan." She blurted and immediately blushed.

Harry laughed. "Thanks."

"We're not intruding or anything, are we? We can leave, Tess just wanted to meet you."

Harry sat on the couch next to me. "No! You're fine. It's always nice to have someone around who's not one of the boys."

"Speaking of which, where are they?" I asked. I knew Tess was dying to meet them.

"Louis and Zayn went out with Niall to the store. You can't really let Niall go alone or things don't turn out so well." Liam explained after shutting off the TV.

Tess and I laughed.

"That does sound like Nialler." Crap. I shouln't have said that. To them, I'm not a fan. I waited to see if they noticed; just my luck, they did.

"I thought you weren't a fan..?" Harry wondered, staring right at me. I could tell that Liam was watching me too. I glanced at Tess and she was giving me an "I told you so" look..

I gulped nervously. "Uh, well, you see... I lied."

"You lied?!" Harry exclaimed. "I thought we could trust you!"

Oh gosh. I've ruined it all. "You can!" I promised.

"Really."

"Are you mad?" That was dumb. Of course he was mad. I'm an idiot.

"Nope." He looked at me and grinned.

"But I lied." I said stupidly.

"We kind of knew. I mean, who doesn't know One Direction? Plus, you were really fidgety."

I relaxed. Thank goodness. I looked at Liam when I heard him laughing. Tess was too.

"You should have seen your face!" He spluttered. "You looked so scared and worried!"

I could feel my face heating up. "I thought he was mad! It would be awful having a member of your favorite band personally hate you because you lied to them!"

"It's okay, love. You were probably just really shocked yesterday." Harry smiled.

"I was. I never excepted you guys to come here. I never thought I'd meet you."

"You live in the same city as us and your obviously a big fan. I'm sure you would have eventually met us." Liam assured.

"She's very unlucky." Tess laughed and I nodded. I was.

A second later, the front door opened and in came the three missing boys.

"Lissa!" Niall shouted, spotting me immediately. "And friend!"

I laughed as he came to me and hugged me despite barely knowing me. I looked at Tess over  his shoulder. We were both thinking the same thing: I was getting a Horan Hug!

He pulled back and smiled at me just as Louis and Zayn walked in.

"LISSY BEAR!" Louis shouted as he tackled me in a hug. I saw Tess watching us with wide eyes.

"Hey Lou." I laughed. I was surprised at myself for being so calm around them.

"You came back!" He smiled, after calming down. "Sorry for being so  hyped up yesterday. I had a lot of caffeine. I'm usually somewhat calmer."

"Yeah. Somewhat." Zayn muttered and I laughed.

"So, Zayn was right." Harry suddenly stated. We all turned to look at him.

"I was?" Zayn wondered as his eyes focused on me. "I figured."

Oh. Zayn must have been the one to suggest I'd been lying. I gulped and looked down.

"Sorry." I mumbled. 

"It's okay, love! You didn't freak out and scream when you saw us. You can act normal and I really doubt you'd be the type to use us for fame, so you're stuck with us!" Louis grinned and I smiled.

"But no more lying." Zayn said.

"I promise. No more lying." I nodded.

"And you can hang out with us too." Liam added, looking at Tess who was smiling like crazy.

That wasn't at all what I was expecting. These boys were incredible.

Old man in a speedo. o_O Uhhh....

Lissa is lucky the boys forgave her for lying. Why did she even do it in the first place? Gosh, lying is so bad. She should know better! (hahahaha!)
