I met the boys on Saturday June 2nd, 2012 at Old Orchard mall in Illinois. It all started when I found out that they were having a Dare to Dream book signing at the mall a couple months ago. I tried really really hard to convince my mom to take me to get a wristband, but she refused because we would have to sleep over at the mall and wait in line for hours and hours. I eventually gave up, but on May 23rd, as I was driving home from school, i got a call from my friend telling me that her dad had got a tickets to wait in line for the wristbands! i started crying and tried to explain to my dad that he had to drive me to the mall so i could get in line. It took a while but he finally decided to let me go. I got there at about 3:45 pm and got in line with my friend (we were 3rd from the end!!) i literally thanked her dad 9876543234567 times, but i still don’t think I could ever repay him for getting me those tickets and making my dream come true. So basically, we waited in that line for 18 hours and slept on the concrete it was freezing but it was more than worth it! the scariest thing happened though. we all got our wristbands in the morning and there was a total of 500 being handed out. We think that some people got into line somehow and got wristbands that were not supposed which meant that there were not enough for the people who had waited in line. My friend actually ended up getting the last wristband, but there were still me and 4 other girls in line. It all worked out though and they found a few more, but it was honestly the scariest most stressful experience of my life.
OKAY anyway…to the signing. My friend and I got to the mall at 8am on June 2nd and waited in the line for about 6 hours. The boys came at around 2pm. When they finally got there I basically had a heart attack. It was so weird seeing them in real life because sometimes i forget they they are actually real people…but they are absolutely perfect and beautiful in person. However, when it was finally my turn to meet them I got so nervous that I completely forgot what i was going to say, i’m stupid i know. i ended up just saying hi so all of them.
So, first up was Harry. I walked up to him and said “Hi Harry!” and he looked up and said “Hello Love!!” i literally died inside and i had to try so hard not to cry! i know that he calls a lot of people love but it was still amazing to hear him say it to me.
Next was Lou. I said “Hello Louis!” and he looked up and said “HIII!!” and smiled it was so cute! he didn’t say much but he just looked genuinely happy! whoever says he is rude at signings is totally wrong! he was so nice and was smiling the entire time
Then there was Zayn, I said “hey Zayn!” he didn’t say much either, just “hello,” but he looked amazing so i was okay with that :)
OMG next was Liam! so i said “Hello Liam!!” and he looked up and said “HELLOO!” but the security people were kind of pushing me so i looked away for a second and when I turned back to Liam he was still looking at me and then he WINKED AT ME!! KJHGFD i literally stopped breathing it was the cutest wink in the entire world!
Last, but not least, was Niall! I said “Hi Niall!” and he looked up and said “Hello!!!” but then he just kind of stared into my eyes for like 10 seconds. he really does have the most beautiful eyes i have ever seen!! then he held his hand up for a high five, so i got to touch his hand omfgggg :)
the boys are sooo nice and beautiful in person!
sorry this was so long, it’s just really difficult to describe it in a short paragraph because it was the best day of my life!
i still can’ believe I met them, i honestly thought that i never would. they probably don’t remember me, but i’m okay with that because I will remember that day for the rest of my life. I just wish I could relive it over and over.
