"Ah, take a deep breath and smell the London air," Nat said as we stepped outside the airport.
"Oh yes, the sweet smell of car fumes and petrol!" I retorted teasingly
Nat gave me a 'you killed it' look jokingly but then started to giggle
"I can't believe we're ACTUALLY in London!" she gasped
"Same here, I can't believe we're going to school in London for a year!" I laughed.
"Completely agreed!" Nat said, as she started to walk down a road, reading the map in her hand, "Dunno about you but I wanna dump our bags in the hotel and then get sightseeing!"
"Sounds good" I agreed, and started to follow her.
Me and Nat (short for Nathaara) got a scholarship into a school in London for a year, and so we packed our bags and travelled from Australia to come and stay here. We were staying in a hotel until we could find an apartment to rent that was close to the school.
"Wow, there are trains going everywhere!" I exclaimed as we studied the metro map at the train station that showed trains that could go everywhere, which was very different to the metro system we had in Australia.
"Where do you want to go?" Nat asked, "There are so many places! Buckingham palace, Tower of London, the Thames, Trafalgar Square…"
"Lets just get on a train and get off when we see something interesting" I suggested.
Nat agreed and we walked down to a platform.
The train station was so busy and full of people moving on and off them. We got on one and I moved my way around trying to find a seat, but the train was too full and so Nat and I just stood squashed in the middle.
There seemed to be a platform where lots of people got off, and so I started to move towards a seat, but in doing so I bumped into a guy getting on the train, and accidently knocked off the sunglasses he was wearing.
"Oh god I'm so sorry!" I apologised and picked up his glasses.
When I stood up I noticed his face, his green eyes, and his brown curly hair.
It was Harry styles.
I was so shocked and speechless that I just froze, still holding his sunglasses.
He put his finger to his lips and by some miracle I managed to stay quiet and hand his sunglasses back to him.
"Thanks" he said smiling
"No problem" I said quietly, smiling at him, as he put on his sunglasses.
I heard a gasp behind me and I saw Nat staring at Harry, her eyes wide with a ridiculous grin on her face.
"Hi" Harry said to her, smiling.
"Hi" she said, and looked at me with an "OH MY GOD" look.
I knew for a fact that Harry was Nat's favourite member of One Direction, and so I moved out of the way so that they could talk. After Nat got over her star struck phase, they started talking easily, and before long they were talking like friends that had known each other for years. But that didn't surprise me, I mean, Nat LOVED One Direction, knew everything about them and had watched basically every single interview that Harry had done.
After a long time on the train Harry said to both of us "hey my stop is coming up soon, do you guys want to come an visit my apartment? I share one with Louis, it's not far from here"
"Louis is you guardian right? Coz he's 18 and you're 17 like us?" Nat asked giggling, she sure did her research.
"haha yep, he sure is, some days when I do something he goes 'come back here, I own you!' it's hilarious"
We all laughed and then I said, "Yeah sure, it would be great to visit!"
"Cool!" he laughed and Nat beamed at me gratefully.
