A Summer. A Smile. A Memory

"HELP!" I shouted. I was being wash off further from the shore. I panic. I can see the boys jump in the water and swimming as fast as they could. It was still raining heavily and the storm is getting worst.

"Don't move." a hard voice sings and a pair of strong arms grab me. I look up. Zayn. I don't get it. He hates me. He would probably love it if i drown to death. I did as he said and he swim us back to shore.

"Zayn, you don't swim." Harry said surprised.

"I don't doesn't mean I can't." He focus back on me. "You okay?" He lean down and surprise me with a hug.


1. The Boys


“Ever ! We are gonna be late !” Charley knocks the door and I can hear her footsteps going downstairs. I got up and check the clock. Shit it’s 9 in the morning and we have another 3 hours for our flight to London. I dust off to the bathroom and got wash. I wore a comfortable skinny jean and a white Jack Will’s top. I let my hair up to a French braid and a thin layer of make up to finish up.I pack my things and head downstairs, joining Charley.

“Morning Sunshine.” I smile and grab a glass of orange juice. “Making me breakfast?” I teases.

“No. You make it.”

“No way.”

“Fine.  I’ll have cereals instead.” She sticks her tongue out.

“Lucky Charms!” I jump out of my seat and head for the cereals. “Arhh!”

“What?” Charley ran to me.

“There’s no Luck Charms left.” I frown.

“Gee, get something else.” She rolls her eyes.

“No..” I wined.

“We can get some ice cream in the air port.”

“Okay! Corn flacks for you?”

“Duh.” She laughs and grabs the corn flacks.

“Will you ever use a  spoon?” I laugh at her.

“Whatever. I like licking my fingers. By the way, have you told Eleanor the time or perhaps the date?”

“Oh come on I’m not that clumsy.”

“Well, yes you are.”

“Come on lets go already.” I finish my orange juice and grab some snacks in case need to shut Charley up. I laugh at that thought and we grab our cab.


We got off the plane but still no sign of Eleanor. I did tell her the time and date, I remember it very well. I start to panic.

“Ever. Are you sure?” Charley stares.

“Well hello.” A happy Irish guy approach us before I could speak.

“Hi.” Charley waves and I did the same.

“I’m Niall.” He shook my hand and Charley’s . “Me and Harry-“ he turn to find his partner who is talking to an air stewardess. “Well, uhm. Eleanor asks us to pick you guys up. Sorry we are late.”

“It’s okay. We’re sorry to trouble you. We could get the cab if Eleanor had said she couldn’t make it.” I smile.

“Not at all.” He laughs and help us with our bag. Harry drove us to our apartment. He is very friendly and charming while Niall is loud, funny and sweet.

Soon we got to a house near a beach.

“Charley! Ever!” Eleanor locks her arms around us.

“Nice to see you too.” I giggle.

“You found a pretty big apartment for just us two.” Charley looks around.

“Oh. I’m sorry but this is actually their house.” Eleanor laughs and point to Niall and Harry.

“Oh.” Charley blushes.

“I actually didn’t get you an apartment.” Eleanor confesses.

“What?!” Me and Charley said at the same time.

“Don’t get angry, we ask her not to.” A tall, charming guy came and pull Eleanor by her waist and plant a kiss on her hair. This must be the guy she told me over the phone a month ago. I smile to be polite. “I’m Louis.” He return a dreamy smile.

“So we’re living on the street?”Charley said.

“Of course not.” Niall laughs.

“You’re living with us!” Another tall guy came and grabs our bags to the side so we could get a bigger space to walk on the hall. Gentleman. “I’m Liam.” He smiles and shocks our hands.

“I’m Charley.”

“I’m Ever.”

“Nice name. Well, we have two extra rooms so we though you guys would like to stay here instead.”

“Won’t it be bothering you boys?” Charley said.

“Nahh, it won’t be a problem.” Harry smiles.

“But-“ Charley got cut off.

“No buts. You can cook dinner today if you wanna thank us.” Niall teases.

“Okay I’m getting an apartment now.” Charley said playfully.

“No no. Don’t be silly.” Niall grabs her arm and I swear, I can see it, the next perfect couple.

“Come on. It would be fun. I’m staying here in the summer too.” Eleanor begs.

“Let yourself feel like home.” Louis said.

“Thank you.” I reach over to grab my bag but Liam beat me to it.

“Let me do it.” He leads me up. He brought us to a room at the end of the hall way. The room was big. The wallpapers are in cream colour and the bed sheet is white. There’s a big closet at the corner and a make-up table just across the bed. The window faces the ocean. It was the perfect room. Liam set my bags at the said of the bed.

“Thanks.” Charley said

“You’re welcome.”

“It’s so beautiful here.” I didn’t know I said it out loud.

“Yeah Zayn did the decoration for all the rooms. Oh and Zayn is another guy that stays there. He is probably in his room.” He smiles.

“I really hope is not a trouble for us to stay.” I said.

“Don’t be silly. Eleanor’s friend is our friend.” He surprises me with a hug and Charley did the same. “I’ll let you explore the room.” He winks and walks out. I walk around the room, paying attention to every detail on the painting on the wall. It was beautiful. Zayn did a great job. We start unpacking.

“Ever, save me some space in the closet!” Charley said.

“Fine.” I giggle and leave half of it for her.

“Hey girls can I come in?” Niall knocks the door.

“Sure.” Charley jumps up and grab the door.

“I was wondering if you girls are hungry?”

“I’m starving.” Charley complains.

“Me too. What would you like?”

“I don’t know. Would you mind me coming with you?”

“Not at all.” Niall brightens up. “Ever?”

“Oh no thanks. I’m fine.” I smile, not wanting to ruin it for Charley.

“I’ll get you your Lucky Charms.” Charley winks and they both dust off. I finish unpacking my stuffs and Charely’s. I went back to the hall and check out where is the bathroom. When I was about to head back to my room again, I hear a loud knock. I was shock and open the door to see what was going on. A shirtless guy was on the floor doing some push ups. He looks up at me and we stare for a while. He has dark eyes and well shaped lips.


“What is wrong with you?” he busted out.

“I’m sorry. I heard a loud knock. I’m-“ I pause. I couldn’t get my words out right. “I’ll get going.”

He rolls his eyes and continues what he was doing. I ran back to my room. That must be Zayn. He was kindda rude but I guess he was shocked too. I should apologize. After all, we are gonna live under same roof. His beautiful eyes was stuck in my mind.
