*Emma’s Point of View*
Spending the whole day with Niall and Liam turned out to not be as awkward as I thought it would be.
It was worse.
We went to see “Sky Fall” and I sat in between the two of them. Niall had his arm around me the whole time. Liam on the other hand kept periodically playing footsy with me, grabbing my hand, or rubbing my knee.
I hated it and loved it at the same time.
But I was so nervous Niall would see. I am surprised he DIDN’T see, actually. I kept jumping and kicking Liam away every time he would touch me.
Lunch was definitely even more interesting. We sat at the bar because the restaurant was so crowded and again, I sat in between them. But this time, they both rubbed my knees under the table. I started stuttering in the middle of ordering my food when they both did it at the same time. I could tell by the little smirks on their faces that each of them thought it was just themselves doing it to me. They were so oblivious to what was happening.
Two hours later we finally got back to Liam’s place, but it had already felt like we had been gone for days. At least that is how it felt to me. As soon as we get out of the car Liam goes inside with a quick “Bye Niall” and the Irish boy and I stand outside alone.
“Bye… Liam,” Niall says as Liam slams the door. “What’s been up with him today?”
“I have no idea, honestly,” I say sitting on the porch steps and he follows suit.
“You know what this reminds me of?” He asks, lifting my chin.
“That night, when we kissed for the first time? We were sitting on porch steps, just like now.”
“Oh my God! I remember that. That was the happiest night of my life,” I say laughing.
“Was?” He says and his eyebrows go up.
“Of course. All those other nights we spent together have been way better.”
We both laugh and I have flash backs of all the other wonderful times me and Niall have spent together, just like this. Why did I stop liking him in the first place? He’s amazing! And we have had so many fun times together. I can’t let Liam get in the way of that. Liam. But I have a spark with Liam. I want to spend all day with Liam. I feel like Niall and I are just old friends. I feel like Liam could actually be my boyfriend.
I feel like a knife stabs my stomach, I am so full of guilt. What happened last night with Liam was fun and I was finally happy again. Maybe I should end it with Niall right here, right now.
“Emma, that night at B.J.’s when I told you that I love you, I was afraid that maybe you felt rushed. And I understand that I took a leap. But I want you to know that I meant it. I love you. I love your laugh, your smile, your eyes, and your personality. Everything. And it’s okay if you don’t feel the same but I just wanted you to know.”
I stare into his beautiful blue eyes. Eh, what the heck. I lean and kiss him, wrapping my arms around his neck as he pulls me in closer towards him. I like this. I can live like this. I don’t need Liam. Liam. Liam with his deep brown eyes. I open my eyes, mid-kiss, and see Liam staring through the window. His eyes are squinted and I can tell he is pissed at me. I see him move away from the window and open the door.
“Are you coming in yet?”
I pull away from Niall, “Yeah, sorry.”
Liam rolls his eyes again and slams the door shut once again. Niall laughs and winks at me, “I’ll text you later love,” he says and pecks me on the forehead. I watch as he gets into his car and drives away. Once I am sure he is long gone, I sigh and enter the house.
“What the hell was that?” I yell at Liam who happens to be standing right there in the kitchen.
“What do you mean?” he asks innocently.
“Oh please. The whole grabbing me during the movie and under the table, playing footsy with me. Are you trying to make Niall figure out what happened?”
“Of course not.”
“Then why did you do all that?”
“Well why did you start making out with him? After you told me last night how you didn’t love him and wanted to break up with him. What was that about?” he yells.
“He told me he loved me again and-.”
“He told you he loved you? Oh what, so if a random stranger comes up to you and tell you he loves you you’ll just make out with him?”
“What on Earth is that supposed to mean?” I ask.
“It means you just throw yourself out there without thinking about what you are doing!”
“I don’t like what you are implying. And besides, why do you care?” I am on the edge now. I just want to slam a door and get this over with.
“Isn’t it obvious? I told you last night! I have feelings for you! Then you told me you like me back and then you go make out with Niall. I thought this would actually work out. Now I don’t know what to believe.”
“This can’t work out! I’m dating Niall, not you. What happened last night was a mistake and we both know it. Liam, you know I will always have feelings for you, but until I can figure things out with Niall, nothing will happen between us!”
Liam pauses and takes a deep breath, “Well, if that’s how you feel,” and he walks out of the room and I hear him slam his bedroom door.
I need to talk to someone. I have to vent to someone who can keep a secret. I can’t talk to Tiffany and I can’t talk to Niall. But who else is there?
