"Well... This is awkward." I said as I shut the door. Everybody was still staring at me. I just stood there. It was a really awkward silence. Suddenly Liam said, "So why don't you tell everyone where you really were." I thought fast and blurted out the first thing that came in my mind. "I was feeling homesick so I went to the beach to just get away from everything. But I was too embarrassed to tell you guys." Wow. That was a stupid excuse. I smiled sheepishly. All of a sudden the tension in the room disappeared. Niall sprang up off the couch and said, "No need to be embarrassed about that! Everyone gets homesick every once in a while. Now who wants to go to Nando's?" Everyone nodded and Louis offered to drive. Everyone left and it was just Perrie and me.
I started walking towards the door when Perrie stopped me. She grabbed my arm and spun me around. She glared at me and said, "I know you weren't at the beach. Where were you?" I sighed and responded, "I left my jacket at a friend's house and I had to go get it." She asked, "Then why don't you have it with you?" "She wasn't home." Perrie's eyes suddenly got wide. "She?! Did she steal your jacket? Should we call the cops? Are you cheating on me?! Why did you lie?!" I rolled my eyes. I love Perrie, but sometimes she can be a total brat. I responded, "Yes, she. As in a girl. No, she didn't steal my jacket. She forgot to give it back. No, we shouldn't call the cops. I'm not cheating on you. I lied because I didn't want to have to explain what happened. Happy?" She obviously didn't believe me but she said, "Fine." She then turned and walked into the hallway. I heard her mumble something like, "Yeah, she 'forgot' it." I rolled my eyes and slowly followed her into the hallway. All of a sudden she stopped and turned and asked what her name is. I paused and said, "Eleanor...?" She responded, "She sounds hideous." She then flipped her hair and stormed off. I scoffed and kept walking.
We made it outside and the boys were waiting for us. We all climbed in the van. Harry, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat, turned on the radio. "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was on. I said, "Oh, I love this song! Turn it up!" Perrie glared at me and said, "The only reason you like this song is because you think she's hot. I mean this song is awful. She can't sing and she just repeats herself." I sighed. This was going to be a fun trip.
We finally arrived at the airport. I quickly grabbed my bags and ran out into the main section where Ashley was probably waiting. I stood in the middle and spotted her. I started running to her and greeted her with a big hug. We laughed for a little while and I got in her car. She got in and drove away. I didn't even bother to say bye to my family.
We talked about everything. Everything from what we did over break to what food we ate. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, Ash blurted out, "Ok, so where did you Zayn Malik's jacket?" I froze. Everything rushed back to my head. I started to tear up and told her everything. The night on the beach. She listened intently the whole time. I finished up my story, she said, "Ah ok. Well I think it's really cool." I responded, "Yeah I guess it is. But either way, I never want to hear or see anything about One Direction!" Ash replied with, "Uh....." I looked over at her with a confused expression. She nervously laughed an said, "Well... Um. You'll understand when you get to my place." I was scared.
When we arrived, I grabbed my bags and got out of the car. I walked inside and everything seemed normal. I sighed of relief. She was just faking me out. She came in and told me to go upstairs. I started going up the stairs when I saw it. She had completely dedicated the whole upstairs to One Direction. All I remember was getting really dizzy and then: blackout.
We finally got home. Perrie was still being a total brat. The boys looked as annoyed as I was. All day, she was hinting that everything I did was to impress girls. I can assure you: I am not a womanizer.
When we got back to the hotel room, everyone sat on the couches and decided on a movie. Well... Perrie decided on the movie. Whenever anyone mentioned a movie she would say something like, "Well that's a lame movie." or "Ugh. I've seen that so many times." So she picked a chick flick and everyone groaned. She told everyone to "Shut up because it's rude to groan" or something like that. The movie was actually pretty interesting. I think I heard Niall cry a few times.
In the middle of the movie, we took an intermission. Niall got more food, Liam called his girlfriend, and Louis called his mum. Once we all returned, well all except Louis, we all got comfortable to start the movie again. Right when I least expected it, Perrie jumped up and blurted out the words I never expected, "Zayn, I'm pregnant." I froze. All the other boys tensed. I started getting dizzy then: blackout.
The last things I remembered before I lost consciousness were the boys frozen, a smug Perrie, and a crying Louis.
Just my luck.
