Back before One Direction was formed on The X-Factor, the judges had the four older bandmembers - Harry, Liam, Louis and Zayn - picked out but they couldn’t help but feel that something was missing. At the same time, they didn’t want to waste an amazing Irish boy's - Niall - obvious talent, so they decided to take a risk and place the young Irish boy in the band even though he was a couple years younger than the others. As they got further and further in the competition, the stress became too much for Niall, causing him to act out. There was a week where it became too bad. He was rude to anyone who got near him and he didn’t care about practicing or anything else. In the end, Zayn had enough. He snapped, which resulted in Niall getting a hard spanking in front of the other members of One Direction. They figured out that the discipline helped bringing their innocent, little boy back. The innocent little angel they had come to love. The judges’ risk paid off in the end and now Niall is the glue of the band. Now almost 3 years since The X-Factor the boys live together in a big house in London. They still function like a family and Niall is still getting spanked when he breaks the rules. But the most important thing is that they love each other and they all watch out for one another.
