What Does It Take? ~ Niall Horan Love Story {Chapter One}

There he was. That boy. He had greenish-blue orbs, and blonde hair that was just so irresistible. Every girl on the block fancied this boy. Well, who wouldn't? He's popular, he's got talent, and he's got many friends. He's the 'whole package'. Or so everyone thinks… His name was Niall Horan.

Me? I was the total opposite. I have really dark brown long hair that hit right under my chest. Almost black, but you would occasionally see some brown. And my eyes? Nothing special either. Just plain brown eyes that I always hated. I wish that I had a more unique color. Like maybe green, or blue. I wasn't the most popular either. I have a few friends, Elise & Arianna but other than that I was nothing….. just a girl. My name is Alexis Fay and I'm 17 years old. I'm half British half Filipino. I have a younger sister named Nessie. She is 12 years old.

I wondered how life would be with Niall. But what would he see in me? I'm just a nerd. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm not pretty, I'm not like those model-perfect girls. I may be pretty skinny, but that's because I was bulimic.

Niall's P.O.V.

Life was amazing right now. Got my boys Liam, Harry, Louis & Zayn by my side. Getting hammered every weekend and partying all night. We were pretty much wild.

Until my alarm clock went on.

"Ugh." I groaned. 7:40, the clock read. Perfect. I automatically shot up my bed, realizing it was a Monday. I was half drunk - half sober from Saturday's banging party we threw. I got up to the shower and got ready.

As soon as I finished my hot bath, I grabbed my bag and scurried downstairs. I checked my watch. 7:50. "Shit." I said under my breath. I grabbed a banana off the kitchen table and baded goodbye to my mum. After that, I headed to school with my black range rover.

Alexis' P.O.V.

There I was, Alexis Fay. Most popular girl in school, getting ready for a party on this Saturday night. As soon as I arrived at the party, everyone greeted me. Because I was the life of the party, the music didn't start until I came in.

So I was having a good time, dancing the night away.

Until my alarm clock buzzed. I sighed, realizing it was only just a dream.

I automatically hit the snooze button. It was 7:00. I woke up early everyday because I didn't want to be late. I shot up the bed, took a shower and got ready. Let my hair down and put on my make up, just so I could actually look good. I was terribly insecure about my face. I had huge bags under my eyes, and a couple pimples here and there.

As I finished, I sighed and put my big framed glasses on. It was now 7:40. I spent too much time on my make-up, I forgot about the time. Great. I walked down the stairs and I saw my mum. "Aren't you going to eat some breakfast, sweetie?" My mum asked. "It's okay mum, I'll just buy something in Starbucks along the way." I lied. Of course, since I was bulimic I skipped breakfast. "Okay sweetie, have a fun day at school!" My mom chirped as a walked out the door and headed to school.

Like I, Alexis Fay would ever have fun in school. I loved school and all, I used academics to be my own person. But socially, it wasn't much of a joy.


Niall pulled up at school with his car. Parked it, then headed inside. He was greeted with a few smiles and girls giggling and waving at him. He replied with a smirk. Soon later, He saw the boys come up to him.
