Picture Perfect

It all started with a job. Chloe Miller had a job. As a photographer. In London. For the hit t.v. show XFactor. She never new that the five boys she became best friends with would end up being the most popular boy band in the world. She never knew that they would would break their promise either. Or her heart.


14. New Opportunity

A car horn beeped outside my house. I peered put of my window that looked out onto the front of my house. A big Escalade truck was parked outside. Liam stuck his head out of the passengers window and waved up at me. I waved back and stuck up my index finger to show that i would be down in one minute. 

I was all ready for my day with Demi and the boys. It had been two weeks since we made up and I have been going out a lot with them. It was as if nothing bad ever happened between us. They filled me in on how their life was after the X Factor- all of their tours they went on, interesting fan encounters, performances and interviews. It made me realize how much i missed talking to them. They would stay in L.A. for the rest of October and then in the beginning of November they would return to London to celebrate the release of their new album. 

That day with the boys I had decided to wear a strapless olive green romper with a big brown belt around my waist. I put on my brown flip flops and wore my hair up in a messy bun. I grabbed my Michael Kors sunglasses off my dresser and slipped them on. In my bag I had the usual things. I ran downstairs into the kitchen. My house was empty- both of my parents were at work. It was 1 in the afternoon and today was my day off so I had just woken up an hour ago. I ran out of my house grabbing the house keys and locking the door behind me.

"You're all the way in the back!" Liam called out the window I opened the back door to be greeted by Demi. She had been hanging out with us a lot and I enjoyed having the company of another girl. She was in the second row with Niall, all the way in the back in the third row sat Louis and Zayn and Harry was driving. Louis wiggled his eyebrows at me and patted the seat next to him. I plopped down in between him and Zayn.

"Hello love," Louis greeted me.

"You look beautiful today," Zayn whispered. I blushed and thanked him. My feelings for him were starting to come back and I knew he liked me too. We werent dating or anything but we spent a lot of time together with just us two. The other boys were fine with it. Harry even encouraged it which was surprising to all of us.

"How bout some music then," Liam said. He turned the radio on and "Sexy and I Know It" came on.

"This song is so old!" I exclaimed, laughing as Niall and Louis started dancing in their seats. 

"It's still so catchy," Demi said, laughing and dancing along with the boys. I nodded my head in agreement and started doing the same.

We ate at the diner and had fun just talking and hanging out. After we ate we decided to just drive around a little. After a while, we stopped at a park. It was late and the sun would be going down soon. 

As soon as I got out of the car I immediately ran over to the swingset. Demi, Niall and Liam followed while Zayn, Harry and Louis went to play around on the monkey bars and slides. Luckily there were no kids around. I got on a swing and started swinging back in forth until I was high in the air. Next to me, Liam was even higher. 

"Hey watch this!" he exclaimed. 

"Be careful Liam!" Niall said back, as if he knew what Liam was about to do. 

"Dont worry Nialler." After he said that, Liam jumped off his swing and did a backflip in the air, landing gently on his feet.

"Liam! You couldve gotten yourself killed!" Demi screeched. Niall laughed and so did Liam. Then Zayn came over to the swings and took Liams spot next to me.

"I'll leave you two alone," Demi sad quietly so only I could hear. She walked off taking Liam and Niall with her and then

I was left alone with Zayn. We were quiet for a little, swinging gently and watching Demi and the rest of the boys mess around.

"So, are you having fun?" Zayn asked.

"Of course! Zayn you always ask me this and I always say the same thing," I replied.

"I'm just making sure you're alright!" he responded. 

I laughed. "I'm fine. I'm really glad we're all friends again." 

"Me too," Zayn said, smiling sweetly at me. "I need to ask you something?"

I looked at him, nervous about what he might say next. But he didnt say what I think he would say. 

"So you know how the boys and I have to go back to London in a couple of weeks for the release of our 2nd album?" he said.

"Yeah...?" I replied slowly. 

"Well we- the boys and I- wanted to know if you would like to come with us," he finished.

"Go with you- to London? Just me?" I said. I was shocked at the question.

"Well yeah, I mean we will be in London for a little and we might go to some other places too- visit family, do interviews- but we want you to come with us and-," he began to explain the plan but I cut him off.

"Zayn, you cant just expect me to drop everything and leave L.A... I have a job here and my parents wouldnt let me!" I exclaimed. I wanted to go but it would be so hard.

"Wait, you didnt let me finish! We want to give you a new job as our personal photographer. You can travel with us and we'll pay you and everything! And your brothers and cousin are in London, you'll get to see them more often!" Zayn continued. "Besides, you're almost 19- an adult. You parents cant tell you what to do anymore."

I stared down at the ground while I continued to think. I couldnt believe what he was telling me. A new job as One Directions personal photographer? And it was every girls dream to travel the world with One Direction. It would be an amazing experience and I would do it in a heartbeat but it was a big decision. And he was right; I was going to be 19 in a couple of months and I was thinking about moving out soon anyway.

"I dont know what to say Zayn... I mean I would love to come but it would be hard to just drop everything and go with you guys...," I said.

"Will you at least think about it?" Zayn asked, giving me a look that was hard to say no to and grabbing my hand.

"Of course I will," I replied, smiling at him. He smiled back at me. 

"Zayn, Chloe! Come on you're gonna miss the sunset," Harry called over to us.

We ran to where he was with Demi and the rest of the guys. We were on a hill that had soft green grass covering it. It was like we were in a meadow. We all sat down on the ground. I sat on one end with Zayn next to me. I crossed my legs in front of me then leaned back on my hands. Zayn extended his legs out and leaned back to so he was resting on his elbows. 

The sky was now all different colors- orange, pink, purple. It was gorgeous, and a warm breeze blew stray hairs out of my face.

"Beautiful, huh?" Zayn whispered. 

I nodded and looked at him. He was staring at me lovingly.

What happened next was something that I wouldnt want to stop even if I could. Zayn stopped and leaned in towards me. I leaned into him and felt our lips touch. Sparks flew, it felt like there was nobody else in the world- just Zayn and I. It was a picture perfect moment, with the sunset in front of us. It was the same kiss as the first one we shared, two years ago. The same feeling. Except this time I knew he wouldnt just walk away after.

When the kiss ended, I felt out of breath. It wasnt that it was an intense kiss, it just, well, took my breath away. I kept my eyes closed for a few more seconds and then opened them to see a pair of hazel eyes staring back at me.

"Think about it, ok?" he whispered, winking at me. I laughed.

"I will, I promise."
