Will Zoe be able to face her past, get rid of her ex, and decide who to love? Only she will be able to decide.


5. Afterwards

Zoe's POV:

Once the boys had taken their final bow and walked off stage, everyone was relieved at the end of the day.

"I'm going to head back to the hotel once we finish packing up, do want to come with me or stay here?" Lou asked me as we gathered up the makeup and putting them in the proper bags.

"I think I'll stay here if you don't mind." Lou nodded and continued with gathering the makeup. "If you want, you can head back after you're done there and I can clean off the counters and mirrors."

"That would be great Zoe, I think I need a good nap once I get to the hotel." I handed Lou the last bag and she fitted it into the suitcase of makeup then headed out grabbing the double stroller that had Jack and Lux in it.

I grabbed some Clorox wipes and wipe down the counter. Then I wet the mirrors with Windex and clean those off two.

"Hey Zoe, we're heading over to McDonald's want to come?" Louis was leaning up against the door and watching me as I threw away the paper towels and wipe my hands on my jeans.

"Yeah I guess, just let me grab my bag." I grabbed my purse and walked over to Louis, he let me go first and walked beside me down the halls. "Where is everyone?"

"Oh they're waiting by the vans for everyone else to come. There's a lot of stragglers that we have to round up." I stare at him with a questioning look.

"Wouldn't security do that?"

"Well I volunteered to come find you, you are one of the last few people backstage."

"Oh." We walked silently for awhile, but I paused in the hallway. "Hold up, why are you going to McDonald's? I expected you to go somewhere fancy after concerts." Louis laughed at my question and I frowned, crossing my arms at the same time.

"Well what's better then a well done at a concert, then eating ice cream and French fry's." I laugh because maybe it is a little true. We get to the door and I see Liam and Harry racing down the hall, Niall was looking at his phone, and Zayn was drawing on a notepad.

"Alright, since everyone is here now-" Paul looked at me and I got an embarrassed blush-"let's pile into the vans." We walked out and got into a big van. I sat in back with Niall and Harry, Louis and Niall were sitting in the middle, and Zayn was up front, still immersed in his drawing.

I lean over to Niall and whisper, "What is Zayn drawing? He hasn't taken his eyes of his sketch pad since the time I saw him."

"Actually, his eyes have been on that sketch for half an hour." My eyes widen and I sit back in my seat as we pull out of the parking garage.


Zayn's POV:

I could hear Zoe whispering about me in the back, but I continued on my drawing. I was knocked out of my concentration one lights started flashing and I looked up to see the usual girls trying to get to the car, paparazzi, getting a shot of us leaving the venue. I wave at some of them, but when we finally get out, I turn back to my drawing.

"Zayn, come on or you'll be locked in the car." I look up and see that we were at McDonald's already and everyone else was heading towards the door. I climb out of the car, leaving my sketchpad behind. I follow Paul into the place and walk towards the boys. We all ordered and sat down to wait.

"So Zoe, what did you think?" I ask trying to get a conversation started.

"It was loud and it looked like you guys were having fun out there." She smiled and my heart just about melted. I didn't know what it was, but I think that I was in love with her. I looked around the table and Louis had that same look on his face. Great Competition. Our ice cream got to us, Louis, Harry, Liam, Niall, and I got chocolate and Zoe got Vanilla. Harry spilled the fry's out on the tray and we dug in.

"Tomorrow, we're thinking about taking you to a shopping centre tomorrow, would that be ok?" Liam asked Zoe and she beamed.


Louis' POV:

After we had finished and got back in the car, I couldn't stop thinking about my conversation with Zoe backstage, and we she smiled, she got a dimple on the left, but not the right. We got into the hotel and Zoe went in her room. I had to say something, but what? What if she didn't feel the same way about me? I go out of the room, pretending to get something from one of the vending machines. I slide over to the door across the hall and knock. I hear footsteps and then the lock coming undone.

"Hey Louis what's up?" Zoe smiled and stepped aside, letting me in. I walk over and sit on the couch and Zoe takes a seat in the armchair.

"Where's, um, Jack?" Really Jack was all I could think about in a time like this?! God I am so stupid!

"He's in the bedroom, asleep, why do you ask?"

"Oh I was just wondering." I cough and look around.

"Louis, is there something you want to talk to me about?" Zoe could tell that I was needing to say something.


Zoe's POV:

Louis was acting really strange and looking around the room, so I could tell he needed to tell me something.

"Well, I don't know when this happened, maybe when I first saw you, or when we were talking in the hall.." Louis trailed off, and I knew what was coming, he's about to tell me that he likes me or that he's in love with me. Great just great, this is all that I need.

"I, I think I love you. Not the subtle love, but, the heart stopping, breath defying love." My mouth dropped and then there was a knock on the door.
