19. Truth or Dare

*Niall's POV*


Finally a night where Zoe and I can spend some time together without any of us having to work. Zoe brought over some movies and I finally learnt how to master cooking the microwave popcorn without burning them.

"Ta-da, beautifully microwaved popcorn for a beautiful girl, here you go sweetie" I said handing Zoe the bowl of popcorn as she sat up on the couch.

"Niall, what can I say, you are an amazing microwave chef" Zoe said throwing up a piece of popcorn and catching it in her mouth.

"thank you" I said taking a bow and putting on the movie.


"so how was work beautiful?"

"you know, draining. I'm so happy my shift ended early today." she said cuddling into me.

Just as we had gotten comfortable her phone started to ring.

"It's a blocked number, should I answer it?" she asked

I shrugged my shoulders as she hit the answer button.

"hello?" All I heard was a muffled voice but it sounded like her boss. If he called her into work now I wouldn't be too happy, this is the first night in a long time that I actually have Zoe to myself, after all she is my girlfriend.

"but Michael I can't come into work right now. I'm not even rostered on for tonight! But I can't, I'm already out."

Zoe put her phone on speaker so I could hear what she was dealing with. Her boss was raising his voice.

"Zoe I'm sick of your 'I can't' attitude."

"My attitude? Michael I come into work every single day and night that you call even if I haven't had any sleep"

"That's not my problem Zoe, we are understaffed as you know and the restaurant is busy at this time of night. As far as I'm concerned you work for me and I pay you a good salary. If you can't cope with the hours I give you, maybe you're not the right girl for the job!"

"But Michael I've been working there for the past 2 and a half years and I have bent over backwards to make sure that your customers are happy. Before I even got there, you had no idea on what the customers wanted and I helped you and the restaurant to become what it is now. You’d be lost without me"


Zoe wasn't joking when she sad that she helped the restaurant become what it is now, no one even knew that the restaurant existed before she turned that place around. This was the thanks she was getting?


"That's enough Zoe I don't want  hear your excuses. I guess we'll see how well I cope without you on our team."

"So what does that mean? Are you firing me for not coming into one shift even though I have never been late or never taken a day off?"

"that's exactly what I'm saying, we're only as strong as our weakest link and I'm afraid you're that link Zoe. Hand in your apron tomorrow morning. Goodbye" The dial tone sounded the apartment as Zoe sat there in shock. Her face was completely blank.

"I'm so sorry babe" I said as tears started to roll down her face. "They don't deserve you Zo, don't listen to a work that he said."

"am I really the weakest link? "  The one thing I noticed about Zoe was that she was very sensitive and cared a lot about what people thought about her. She'd often believe a lot of the negative things people would say to her or about her. Since we got together, I've been helping her overcome that but hearing what she just heard must have really torn down her confidence.

"Zo, you were their strongest link. Who helped rebuild that restaurant from the ground up? You did! Who put that restaurant on the map for great service and food? You did. Zo believe me when I say they'll struggle without you. You were practically the glue that held everything together and you should have gotten more credit than that." I held her in my arms

"You really think so Niall?" She said through her quiet sobs.

"I know so babe. Are you alright?" I kissed her gently on the forehead.

"I am now, thanks Niall." she held onto me tight. "I'd really be lost without you , you know that Niall."

"I'm just glad that I can help. Do you want to watch the movie still?"

"Um, let me just call Jas. I need to tell her."

"That's fine."


*Jas' POV*

Harry and I were having a bit of a pyjama day. We couldn't be bothered doing anything. We were both siting side-by-side upside on the couch when my phone started ringing.


"Zo Zo what up Z-Dog?" Harry looked at me funny after greeting Zoe that way. I just hit him back with a pillow.

After telling me that she lost her job, as one of her best friends it was my duty to make her feel better. Even though she was with Niall, I think she needed all of her friends there with her to cheer her up.

"Zo listen, everything Niall said was right. Look, sit tight babycakes I'm on my way. No excuse I'm practically out the door. Bye"

Even though I wasn't even close to going out the door, I just needed something to say to Zoe so she wouldn't argue with me.

"Come on Styles, get dressed, we're going over to Niall's."

We both sat up at the same time and fell back down on the couch.

"Everything right with Zoe?" Harry asked trying to regain his balance.

"She got fired and we’re going over to cheer her up. Call Lou and Liam and tell them to bring the girls with them. I'll call Perrie."

"You got it Jas."


*Zoe's POV*

After I got off the phone with Jas I walked to the bathroom to wash my face. I couldn't believe I was fired from the first job that gave me a thrill when I got there  and put a smile on my face (well at least when I started there) and now nothing. I was unemployed. I had never been fired from a job before. I mean, as much as I was upset that I lost my job, the one thing that disappointed me so much was the fact that I put so much into that place; like Niall said I helped build that place from the ground up. I didn't deserve this, especially after all my hard work.


Just as the fresh cool water hit my face, I couldn't help but tear up again. Just as I wiped away my tears for hopefully the last time, Niall stood at the door of the bathroom looking my way.


"Zoe, Jas is here and she has a little surprise for you. When you're ready, I'll be in the living room" He said softly.

As Niall left me on my own I stared at my reflection. My eyes were stinging and slightly red as I tried to fake a smile in the mirror.


"Come on Zoe, pull yourself together". I exhaled deeply and walked towards the living room.

I was only expecting Jas and Harry at the least, but it turns out the whole gang was there. They all stood in a small cluster in front  of the couch


"I just thought you needed some cheering up from the people who love you the most" Jas said holding some sort of large box in her hands.  "Plus, I brought your favourite...COOKIE CAKE!"


It was good to know that I had such a great group of friends. Actually now the more that I think about it, these guys were my best friends. Not to mention the best boyfriend who was also my best friend. When it came to these guys, I never had to fake a smile, they all just knew how to make everything better in their own little way.


-- later that night --

*Jas' POV*

As a group, we didn't really do much other than lounge around on the couch watching reruns of friends or movies. I looked over to Zoe who took the last bite of her piece of cookie cake. She was cuddled into Niall. We all did the best we could to cheer her up, but it seemed like the more we tried, the less interested she seemed.


"babe, what can we do to liven up this 'gathering' or whatever you wanna call it. Everyone just looks so dull." I whispered to Harry.

"yeah I know what you mean."


Harry looked around at everyone slouched on the floor and the couches. Everyone was quiet, just the sound of the tv filled the apartment.


"YO!" Harry shouted. Everyone literally jumped out of their seats, even I did!

"Bloody hell Harry what's your problem" Louis said annoyed.

"Nothing's my problem buddy. Did you guys want to do something?  Like something fun?"

"Yeah, I'm actually getting more depressed just sitting here." Zoe said sitting up on the couch.


I think everyone was feeling that way at the moment.


"How about truth or dare?" Zayn suggested

"I'm in" Perrie said.

"Yeah so am I" Eleanor said as she got up from the floor, along with Louis.

"Alright, lets play" Zoe said.


We sat in a circle on the floor in front of the tv. Granted we didn't move very far, but it surely would have gotten a bit more interesting as the night goes on.

"Seeing as you thought of the game, you're going first…. So Zayn, truth? Or dare?" I said as I sat down. I put all of our names on a folded piece of paper into a bowl so when it was a partner dare, it could be randomly chosen.


"Hmm, tr...dare! Definitely dare!"

"Alrighty… ummm Zayn first of all pick a name" I said as I held out the bowl in front of Zayn.

Zayn unfolded the small piece of paper and read the name out.

"Perrie, it's you and me baby" Zayns said as he smirked. Perrie looked nervous.

"I dare you Zayn to swap clothes with Perrie and run around the park across the road."  I laughed.


Perrie and Zayn went to the nearest bedroom to swap clothes. Once they emerged from the room, Zayn was now wearing Perrie's bright purple skirt and her black tank top  -  Perrie was in Zayn's  trackpants and baggy t-shirt. As they headed outside, we all ran to the window where we watched them cross the road. The park was literally across the road from the apartments. It was dark so the park was lit up by the street lights. We saw Zayn grab Perrie's hand as they skipped around the park. It was actually really hilarious seeing Zayn in a skirt.


As they walked back through the door, Perrie couldn't stop laughing. Zayn looked embarrassed.

"Aww come on Zayn, if you're lucky the paparazzi won't publish that photo" Perrie said trying to reassure her boyfriend. "Plus you look adorable in a skirt" She continued to laugh.

"Can we swap clothes now, this skirt is quite breezy" Zayn asked.


By the time Zayn and Perrie were back dressed in their own clothes, Eleanor already had her turn. It was now Danielle's turn. She picked a name from the bowl and it was Liam.

"Truth or dare?" Zoe asked.

"Dare please"  she replied

"I dare you and Liam to have a dance off and who ever loses eats a mystery sundae made by none other than Niall"

"Liam baby, you're going down. Just saying" Danielle giggled.

"Liam I'll start making your sundae shall I" Niall said as he got up to walk to the kitchen.

"Very funny Niall, I know I'm going to lose so please don't be too harsh"

"Haha we'll see Payne"



The music started to play and at first Danielle went easy on Liam. Then all of a sudden it seemed like Liam was doing better than Danielle, but needless to say the dance professional won. I looked over at Niall to see the tower of a sundae that he had created. It looked really disgusting. Niall had a tin of anchovies out on the counter, as well as chocolate sauce, whipped cream, tuna, ketchup and some of the leftover cookie cake. Liam was in definite trouble now.


He walked up to the counter, eyeing off the sundae that actually smelled really bad, and we were even far away from it.

"I don’t have to eat all of it do I?" Liam asked anxiously. Niall shook his head.

"Really Liam, we're not that bad of friends to you, just a spoonful and that’s it. It looks absolutely disgusting… Sorry buddy"


Liam actually did surprisingly well keeping it down. I really don't know how he did it. Liam walked away from the counter looking pleased with himself that he actually managed to eat the mystery sundae.

"Don't you even think of kissing me now" Danielle said to him jokingly. He chased her back to the circle where he hugged her from behind and kissed her on the cheek as they sat back down.


"So who's next?" I said.

As soon as I finished talking there was a knock on the door.


*Zoe's POV*

I got up from the floor and made my way to the door. I couldn’t believe who it was.

"Hey Zo, I thought I'd find you here."
