Just trying to casually wither away in my own existence and my dog decides he misses me.
I followed Zayn across the hall, with caution of course. I Thought back to the day I moved in and the man in the morph suit that disappeared through this very door.
“Zayn” I whispered, “Zayn, uh, this is going to sound crazy but does the crazy guy in the morph suit live here?”
Zayn broke out in a fit of giggles as he pushed the door open.
I looked over his shoulder and saw the exact same layout of my flat, only 4 times the size.
“wow this is ginormous!” I exclaimed, zayns eyebrow raised on ginormous as if to say, “really?” and I just shrugged and continued down the hallway after him. It branched out Ito a very large living room, where dominating the center was a very elaborate blanket fort.
“are your roommates preschoolers?” I asked with a giggle. He nodded somberly causing me to erupt in giggles.
“oi is that a girl?” came from somewhere inside the fort.
“yes you twat, now come out and greet the company.” Zayn called out to them.
The pile began to come apart as the 4 boys emerged from the blankets.
Gosh were they all handsome. This isn’t fair. New jersey didnt have boys like this. What was in the water here in England, they have these gorgeous guys and Tom Daley. I added as an after thought.
“mates this is Sophie, she lives across the hall and she is my new bestfriend. I know it comes as a shock that I have replaced you, but I hope you will find it in your hearts to forgive me.”
They all looked at me and busted out in a chorus of, ” hi Sophie’s”
I blushed and said hello back. They came up to me one by one to introduce themselves.
Harry with the enormous green eyes and irresistible smile.
Liam with the calm demeanor and perfect brown eyes.
Louis with the mischievous twinkling eyes and windswept brown hair.
And finally Niall, with the smile they melted my heart. I kept eye contact with him for a Long time, causing a blush to creep up both of our cheeks.
I looked at Sophie as the boys introduced themselves. Harry trying to seduce her with his eyes. She didn’t even notice. Classic.
Then Liam showing off his polite side.
Louis showing her that manical smile. And then Niall. They didn’t let go of one another’s hand for awhile. Eyes locked. I looked over at the other boys to see liam shrug at me, and Louis to wink. Harry looked upset, he always wants the girls to fancy him.
They still hadnt let go, “erm well now that we’re all introduced why don’t we go get something to eat?”
Sophie and Niall broke out of their trance, both dropping their gaze, a blush emerging on both of their cheeks. Everyone nodded and we shuffled out the door. Sophie came up to my side and I put mu arm over her shoulders. Niall glanced back, was that anger that flashed in his eyes.
Only twenty minutes later we were seated in Nando’s, some type of Portuguese restaurant I had never heard of. I was glancing down at the menu, not a clue what to order. I looked over at Liam who was seated next to me.
“Uh, what’s good here?” Liam looked down at me and turned my menu, pointing down at a chicken dish.
“I get that everytime. It’s the mildest thing they have, I can’t handle spicy foods so I always get this.” he smile over at me.
“thanks. I spose’ I’ll get that.”
The food arrived shortly. I tentatively started to eat, realizing it was quite good I tucked in. I glanced over at Niall across from me whose plate was already empty. He looked pleased with himself as he snuck food off Harry’s plate when he wasnt paying attention. I giggled and he smirked his sauce covered smile at me. I leaned forward with a napkin, wiping the sauce off. He smiled at me thankfully. I felt my face heat up, gosh Sophie you goob. He’s probably so weirded out, you might be interested but he surely isn’t. I battled internally with myself before the waitress returned with the check. I reached for my purse pulling out my wallet. I tried to hand Liam some money but he just pushed my hand away.
“a lady never pays.” he said
Nonchalantly. I smiled to myself. He was so sweet. Oh great, Sophie. Go ahead, go for him too. I thought to myself, reaching up to smack myself.
“uh Sophie why did you just hit yourself in the face?” Harry questioned. Shit he noticed. I just shrugged and followed the boys out the doors. A dozen flashed erupted around me. What was happening. Zayn came up next to me putting his arm over my shoulder and mouthing for me to bow my head. I followed suit into a cab. Well, this is what it’s going to be like being friends with famous boys.
I woke up the next morning to seven voicemails. 2 from Zayn, 1 from Liam and 4 from my friend back home becca.
I put the phone to my ear listening to the one from Liam first, “hey Sophie, we just wanted to call you and invite you over to watch some movies, we slipped a spare key for you to keep underneath the door. Let yourself in whenever.” I smiled, I loved these boys already. Zayns voice spilled into my ear, “hey soph when you wake up come over babe.” the deck f one wasn’t Zayn. An irish accent came through the headset, “hey beautiful, it’s Niall I nicked zayns phone because I didn’t get your number, I wanted to see if you wanted to go to the park with me and I could show you around London,
I was thinking about 12:30 just come over whenever and let me know.” an ear to ear grin spread across my face, Niall wanted to
Hangout just us. I am probably reading too much into this. He is probably just trying to be friendly. I looked at time on my phone. 11:48. Shit if I was going to look perfect I would need to hurry. I forgot all about the voicemails from Becca. I jumped into the shower, and rushed. I hopped out and dried my hair and ran the curling iron through it. Leaving loose curls in my short blonde hair. I walked over to my closet to pick out an outfit. It was warm out so I picked out a pair of khaki high rise shorts and a flowy black top that slouched off my right shoulder. Exposing my American flag tattoo. I picked out a pair of blue toms and smiled down. This was perfect. I made sure I wore
My best matching underwear in case
Anything slipped I wanted to look put together. I did my makeup and looked back at the time, 12:27. I picked up a small purse and hurried over to the boys, snatching the gold key duty
my on the floor. Attached to it was a red ribbon that simply said, “For Sophie :)”.
