10. Distant

I woke up hearing someone banging around in the kitchen. I opened my eyes and looked around. I was still on the couch, Lux was sleeping peacefully in my arms, and my head was still on Niall’s chest. I looked up at him, he was awake.
“Morning, Peaches!” He said cheerfully.

With my free hand I rubbed my eyes, “How long have you been awake?” I questioned.

“‘Bout an hour.” He shrugged slightly. My eyes went wide. He didn’t wake me up? Why?

“Whoa, you know you could’ve just woken me up or put a pillow there or something.” I said.

“Nah, I didn’t want to bother you. You look so peaceful when you’re sleeping.” I blushed.

Zayn walked into the living room rubbing his eyes and stretching, “I smell food.” Me and Niall laughed. “Harry’s making everyone breakfast,” Niall told him.

Baby Lux started squirming, I looked down at her and I could tell she needed to be changed, I stood up and pointed a finger in the air. “Mommy duties are calling.” I laughed.

“Louis should’ve seen that!” Zayn laughed.

I walked up the stairs back to Niall’s room, changed her and then brought her into the living room where I put her on the rug with one of her toys. I walked into the kitchen and everyone was eating. Harry was looking at me strangely as I sat down.

“How’d you sleep last night, Juli?” Harry asked.

I shrugged, “It was great until Niall woke me up to help him with the baby. Weren’t you supposed to take care of her?” I acted like a mom, putting on my best serious face.

Harry smiled, “Well, excuse me.”

After we ate we went into the living room with Lux. I sat on the floor with Liam and Niall and we played with the baby. Zayn, Louis and Harry were on the couch watching TV.

“I can’t believe tonight’s our last concert of the tour!” Louis said happily.

“I know, and now we can spent more time with our girlfriends!” Harry winked at me. I smiled back. Niall looked a little upset, I guess it was because he doesn’t have a girlfriend.

“How long until the next tour?” I asked. We don’t get to spend a lot of time together. They are always on tour.

“Um, 5 months..?” Louis thought out loud, “I think.”

“Something like that!” Liam added.

I smiled, “Good, I get so lonely without you guys. You’re like family.” I handed Lux to Niall. She loves him, he can always get her to laugh.

“Like?” Zayn stood up, “We’re like family?” He started tickling me.

“Zayn, stop I can’t breathe!” I squirmed, trying to get free.

“We are family!” He laughed, still tickling me.

“Stop,” I tried grabbing his wrists but that didn’t work. “Say it!” He said trying not to laugh.

“You’re my-” I stopped to try and catch my breath, “You are my family!” I said as he finally stopped. “Good and don’t you forget that!” He started to laugh and so did the rest of the boys. I rubbed my sides, they were sore.

“Jeez Zayn, you nearly killed her!” Liam said. I laid there on the rug catching my breath.

After the concert we all went out to celebrate. We went to some club. I wasn’t too big on drinking so I sat with Liam most of the time. Zayn found some girl right off the bat, and the rest of the boys went to dance.

Liam and I were drinking ginger ale. I kept my eye on Niall as Liam spoke to me. I knew that I had a boyfriend and that I shouldn’t care about Niall’s love life, but I did. I might not have shown it, but deep down I didn’t want Niall to find some girl. I wanted that girl to be me.

“Earth to Juliet,” Liam sang, trying to get my attention. I turned to him, I must’ve tuned him out with my train of thought. I didn’t even realize that I zoned out, I just did.

“I’m sorry,” I apologized, taking a sip of my drink. “I just-” I was interrupted.

“You still love him, don’t you?” Liam asked. I folded my arms on the table and slammed my head into them, “I’m such a failure.” I repeatedly slammed my head into my arms.

“Juli, you’re not a failure. This isn’t it your fault. You can’t control who you fall in love with?” Liam rubbed my back gently.

I brought my head up and looked at him. “I am! I have a boyfriend who I’m supposed to love yet I can’t stop thinking about Niall. Everyday, every fucking day I lie. I lie to Harry,I lie to everyone, I lie to myself.” I tried to control myself. I wasn’t angry, I was upset.

“I-” I cut Liam off.

“Last night, when we were taking care of Lux, he told me he loved me. I told him that I loved him too. We didn’t kiss or anything, but he loves me back. What am I supposed to do now? I don’t wanna hurt Harry, because I love him. I just don’t love him the way he wants me too.” I sighed. “Why me, why fucking me? I’m such a waste of oxygen. Life would be so much easier for you guys if I never moved back here.” I groaned slamming my head against the table.

“He-” I cut him off again.

“Liam, I don’t want to hear it. I just want to enjoy the night, ok?” I asked him.

He sighed, something was on his mind. Harry walked over to us, “Hey babe, what’s your name?” He was obviously seriously drunk. Liam looked over at me, and tried holding in a laugh.

“Harry,” I started.

“Woah, I just met you. How do you know my name?” He slurred. I grabbed his hand, and looked over at Liam.

“Can you get the other guys, and tell them to meet us in the car? I think it’s time we go home.” I pulled Harry through the crowd of people. We got outside and the cool air hit my face.

“Whoa, slow down. I don’t even know your name.” I rolled my eyes and sat him down in the car. Soon after the boys piled into the car. They all seemed pretty sober.

“Who are these guys?” Harry asked. He was really, really drunk. I hate him when he’s drunk he’s a total asshole.

“What’s with him?” Louis asked.

“He’s drunk, and he’s being an ass.” I replied.

We got home and put Harry in his bed, fell asleep the second he hit the pillow. We all went into the living room and talk for a bit. “I’m proud of you guys,” They all smiled, “I can’t believe you guys made it so far, it’s just so emotional!” I wiped away a fake tear. Louis laughed, “Yeah, well we couldn’t have done it without you. You supported us through the whole thing!”

I smiled, “heh, thanks guys. I love you, ya know that right?”

“Yeah,” They said at the same time. Niall looked distant. He wasn’t cracking any jokes or doing anything, he just sat there. He looked so deep in thought, like he was trying to say something but couldn’t bring himself to do it. Like he was going to hurt us. He opened his mouth slightly but stopped himself and got quiet again. Maybe it was about what he said last night when I was “sleeping.”

“Niall, are you ok?” I asked him. He looked over at me confused. “You alright?” I asked again.

“Yeah, yeah I’m fine. Just thinkin’ that’s all.” He smiled. I didn’t believe him, his smile was different. “Ok, Guys I think i’m going to bed, night.”
