Overview

Quando il produttore Simon Cowell li ha visti insieme, ha capito in un secondo il loro enorme potenziale; eppure nemmeno lui (l'uomo che li ha lanciati e consacrati al successo) poteva aspettarsi una così folgorante scalata alle classifiche internazionali. Ma chi erano questi cinque bei ragazzi prima di diventare i re incontrastati del pop britannico? Come è nata la loro passione per la musica? Cosa hanno pensato quando sono stati eliminati a X Factor come artisti singoli e poi ripescati e messi insieme come band? Quando hanno cominciato a crederci davvero? E fin dove vogliono arrivare? Com'è cambiata la loro vita, travolta dalla clamorosa e repentina fama? E com'è il loro rapporto con le schiere di fan adoranti? A queste domande e a tante altre curiosità risponde "One Direction Story", la prima biografia vera e propria della band. Racconta la loro incredibile ascesa ai vertici delle classifiche, raccogliendo anche le voci di chi li conosce da sempre e ha visto il sogno diventare realtà. Così, le storie dell'infanzia di Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn e Liam sono finalmente svelate: dalle prime esibizioni davanti ai compagni di scuola alle sfrenate notti di karaoke, dalle storie d'amore alle delusioni sentimentali, fino alle prove più dure, come la malattia e le separazioni in famiglia. "One Direction Story" rivela l'intera, autentica storia della pop band più cool del momento e, arricchito da un inserto fotografico, è un libro imperdibile per ogni vero fan.

I guess with me being a newly graduate, I expected life to be hard on me, but it brought goodness. With being to China, Switzerland, Iceland, Australia, Africa, India, Spain, and Paris in the last 7 months, I never expected to find someone who caught my attention. But he did. And it crushed me when he told me, it wasnt just because he lied to me, it was because he had made me somewhat fall in love with him. Here is how we met. It was just any other morning in Paris, but I had just arrived 3 days ago. I as talking to two friends of mine who reluctantly spoke English. That was when we heard a person fall. It was just an oof, but it caught our attention. I rose and ran over to the figure who had just face planted into the concrete,"Are you ok?" I asked him in French. "What? Im so sorry, I dont speak French." He said as he rose. I caught a glimpse of some kind of accent in his soothing voice. "Oh. It is alright, I speak English." I told him. "Here take a seat," I said helping him hobble over to a chair. He sat, I knelt down and observed his ankle. "Ouch." I said looking up at him. "What? What is the matter?" He asked anxiously. Again I caught the glimmer of his accent. "Well, you sort of sprained your ankle a bit." I said pulling the first aid kit out of my purse. "Great!" He exclaimed. "What's the matter?" I asked calmly. "My friends are going to kill me!" He said. "Oh dont worry. You can take the wrap off in the morning." I said standing up. "Thanks." He said finally calming down. "Your welcome" i said. I could feel his eyes start to observe me. I had been wearing a pair of old denium shorts, a cute blue top I had just bought in Switzerland, and my black and white converse. My hair was down and wavy from the braid I had in last night. His eyes caught mine. I quickly looked away and glanced at my watch. "Oh Shoopers!" I exclaimed. "What is Shoopers?" He asked smiling. "It is my way of saying shoot, ok?" I said throwing my stuff into my messanger bag and slinging it over my shoulder. "What's the matter?" He asked. "Im late for my Skype call with my little cousin." I said looking at him. "Oh! Ok. Well do I even get your name?" He asked. "My name is Gabriella. Gabriella Lincoln. What is yours?" I asked holding out my hand. "Niall..... Uh.. Niall Simons." He said taking my hand and shaking it. "How do I get in touch with you Ms. Gabriella?" I pulled out my card. "Here you go. I have really got to go. That or else my little cousin will be super angry at me." I said turning and running for the motorbike I had rented for my time here. "Try to walk around on that ankle, ok?" I called back over my shoulder. "Will do!" He said in his sweet accent. I started the motorbike and sped off. Hey guys! Hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you want to see what happens next! I will be looking for your comments. If you are wondering, yea this is a one direction fan fiction. It is just that Niall decided to not let her know of his famousness. He likes just hearing someone like him for him instead of just his fame in this one. So... Let me know how I did. Will write another one soon if you decide it is good. -WhisperingWaterLilly

You were at the beach with your friends when you saw this really good lokking guy. You walkdx over to him and said hi. Hey what's up he said. Nothing. What's your name? Oh uh zuzie. Beautiful name for a beautiful lady. You blushed qnd looked away. You felt a little uneasy because you've always been a little insecure. I you never really felt pretty. So what's you name? Oh niall he said. Wanna join me? Sure. It seemed like he was having a picnic. As we sat and ate and whatched and lisened to the shore crashing. Niall then leaned over and kissed you. His lips were so soft and wet. He pulled away and said zuzie will you be my girlfriend? Yes niall of course. I love you zuzie. I love you to niall. We sat under the stars and whispered sweet nothings into eqch other's ear. Wanna know something niall said? What? I love you so much and i will always be faithful to you if i don't have you life just ain't worth living. Aww your so sweet. You had tears burning in your eyes when suddenly he pulled out a box and said here you go. Ohh my godd it's a promise ring i love it so much thank you you cried. Your welcome he said as he gently slid the ring on to your finger. I love silky black hair he sid and ran his fingers through it. You both fell asleep in each others arms under the stary night. THANK YOU FOR READING HOPE YOU ENJOYED ZUZIE!!! I'M SORRY IF IT WASN'T ROMANTIC ENOUGH. PLZ COMMENT!!!

I LOVE your stories! I have one called Drew's gift at mee result 1. Yes, it's mee with 2 Es. You know how you can't suscribe on a nook? You could find a bunch of books nobody's commented on yet, and you could have your own little posse, and everyone could write stories and chat and stuff. And everyone could have code names so you know who's in the group with a list on the next result. Sorry I went way overboard. I'm really exicted! :) ~ Sparklepanda
