"Where have you guys been?! I've been calling and texting all day, we need to go get Melanie!" I exclaimed standing up.
"Whoa, hey. We've been busy all day getting ready for tomorrow. But we knew to make it back in time." Harry said.
"You know I wouldn't let him be late." Liam said.
"I know, at least I have one person to count on, well Niall was going to bring me. But I guess you're off the hook." I said laughing and looking at Niall.
"Uh yeah, good thing you guys are home, better get going I guess and I'll see you guys in the morning." Niall said waving and giving us a small smile.
"Bye Niall, thanks again." I said as he was leaving.
"So what was that about?" Liam asked.
"Nothing. We just hung out today."
"As friends?" Harry asked.
"Yeah! I'm dating Brendon."
"Right, we'll talk more later lets go get Mel!" Harry said.
"Excited to see her Harry?" I teased.
"Shut up." He said playfully pushing me.
Harry, Liam, and I got into Harry's car and we headed to the airport. The boys stayed in the car so they wouldn't get mobbed. Mel and I agreed to meet at baggage. I was wondering around when all of a sudden I felt two arms around me. I screamed and then there was a hand over my mouth. I turned around to see Mel and then we both screamed and hugged each other.
"HI!" I yelled.
"HI!" she yelled back.
"You scared me half to death by the way." I said laughing.
"I figured I would. I need a little excitement after a long flight."
"Well lets go, this is going to be the best five days ever! Harry and Liam are waiting in the car."
"Harry is here?"
"Harry and I have been talking, we are debating over a relationship."
"Well what's the verdict?"
"Maybe in the future, for now we're having fun."
"Good for you two!"
"Speaking of relationship, when do I get to meet your new English boy?"
"Um probably tomorrow. He wants to meet you too."
We grabbed her bags and walked out to the car. I'm guessing Harry saw us coming because he jumped right out of the car and they hugged. I cleared my throat and they broke apart after Harry kissed her cheek. We got into the car, but this time Liam and I sat in the back while Mel sat up front with Harry. Me and Liam kept making faces at each other.
When we got back home we decided to unpack Mel's things, she was going to be taking over Harry's room while she was here and he was gone, but how convenient that they would spend the night together. When we were all settled it was pretty late, Mel and Harry went off to bed and Liam also left. I was all by my self. I wasn't tired either. I didn't want to bother Brendon he had to get up early for work tomorrow. Zayn and Louis were either still with their girlfriends or sleeping now. Maybe Niall is awake...
'Hey, you up?' 'Yeah cant sleep' 'Me either and everyone else is.' 'lol hows mel' 'Good. I think she might be a tad happier to see Harry right now haha.' y u say that' 'They're sleeping in the same bed.' 'actually sleeping' 'Hopefully, don't want to hear anything haha.' 'r u coming to airport in morning' 'Want me to?' 'if u want to' 'I want to if you want me to.' 'guess ur coming then lol' 'Thought so. I'm really bored.' 'come over?' 'Should I?' 'y not' 'Brendon...' 'would he know' 'Be over in a few.' ':)'
I didn't know what I was doing, I know I shouldn't be going over. Brendon would be mad if he knew, but I wasn't planning on telling him, or anyone. Hopefully Niall wouldn't tell either. I changed into yoga pants and a tee, washed my face and threw my hair up in a bun. I went over and knocked on the door. I heard Niall yell "come in" so I walked in.
"Why can't you sleep, we have to get up early you know?"
"I know, but I have things on my mind."
"Like what Leese?"
"Like you Niall."
"I'm going to be honest. I'm not over you Niall."
"I'm not over you either."
"I'm going to though, get over you. I think Brendon is good for me."
"Well I don't. I can already predict he is going to control this relationship."
"You know I wouldn't let that happen."
"It's going to happen, and when it does I'm not going to say I told you so, but I'll be here to help you out."
"Not that it's going to happen, but thanks. Maybe I should go."
"No! I mean please don't."
"Well it's really late and we need to sleep."
"What would everyone say?"
"Since when do you care?"
"Since I have a boyfriend and I don't feel like explaining myself."
"Niall." I smiled. "I'll see you in the morning."
"Wait." Niall stepped forward then just kissed me. But I pushed him off.
"I had to get it out of my system."
I walked back over to my home and went inside and went to my room and went into my bed. Why did he have to kiss me? At least he'll be gone for a month so I can try and get over him. I'm with Brendon now, and that's all that matters. We get along great, we have things in common, he makes me happy, he's so attractive, polite, and we had great sex. Right now he may be a little jealous but I would be too if he had five girls that he was always around so it's understandable. Niall doesn't know what he's talking about.
The next morning I had to get up at five, I literally dragged myself out of bed. I got like three hours of sleep. I didn't even bother to change since I would just stay in the car. I walked out of my room to go to the bathroom and everyone was by the front door.
"Are you coming?" Zayn asked.
"Give me like five minutes?" I asked still half asleep.
"You know you don't have to come we can say our goodbyes now." Harry said.
"No I promised Ni-" I stopped myself.
"Niall?" Melanie asked surprised.
"Um yeah." I said awkwardly. "But I think I'll just say my goodbyes now."
I hugged them all and kissed them on the cheek. I would miss them but it will be good to have some girl time and then some time with Brendon. As I was saying goodbye I realized Niall wasn't here. I just looked passed it and let them go so I could go back to sleep. Melanie came into my bed with me.
"Whaaaaat? I'm tired." I groaned.
"Something to tell me? Something that rhymes with smile? Blonde? Irish? Anything ringing a bell?"
"Um I kind of went over there last night and Niall and I told each other we weren't over each other. But I also said that I wanted to be with Brendon and I will get over him. Niall kissed me and I pushed him off and left."
"Wow. Gonna tell the boy?"
"Of course not. He would be ridiculously angry."
"True. Am I meeting him today?"
"If you let me sleep and you shut the fuck up."
"Deal. I'll be in Harry's bed remembering the great things that happened in it last night."
"You're such a liar!"
"I know." She started laughing. "See you later!"
After a few more hours of sleep I finally figured it was time to get up, I had a text from Brendon. It said 'Missing you. Text me when you decide to wake up.' I texted him back saying 'Sorry babe, wasn't feeling good last night, didn't sleep so I tried to catch up right now. Lets hang out when you get out of work please. Mel wants to meet you.'
I rolled out of bed and walked into Harry's room. Mel wasn't in there. I didn't even feel like looking for her I just went to take a shower. I took a super shower, scrubbing, shaving, conditioning, I wanted to look good for Brendon. When I got out of the shower I checked my phone and there was a text from him and Niall. Brendon's said 'I'll come over at 6, we can go out to dinner, my treat.' I texted back saying 'Can't wait xx' Then I read Niall's it said 'Missed you at the airport. Have a good month, I'll miss you even more.' I knew he meant it because he never texts with spelling things out and grammar like I do. I didn't reply though, I didn't want to add fuel to the fire.
During the day Melanie and I just hung out around the house, I was really tired so I didn't feel like taking her out today, but we would be spending the nest 3 days together so I don't think she minded. We were just happy to see each other. Finally six rolled around and soon enough there was a knock on the door. Melanie ran to go answer it. I was walking to the door from the kitchen and all I heard was,
"Hi I'm Melanie, you must be Brendon the boyfriend, I'm the best friend. You break her heart I break your face. Nice to meet you!"
I just laughed. "Hey Bren." I said walking up and kissing him.
"Hello love, so this is Melanie?"
"Her and all her glory." I said laughing.
"Well it's nice to meet you. Are you ready to go I'm starving."
"Um just give me a minute, I need to dig a coat out of my suitcase." Melanie said.
"Didn't Lisamarie tell you to be ready by six?" Brendon asked in a stern voice.
"Well yeah, but I'll be like one minute." Melanie said and awkwardly walked away.
"Rude." I heard Brendon say under his breath.
"How was work baby?"
"Long, I just wanted to leave as soon as I got here."
"She'll be right back."
"You guys should of been ready to go by the time I got here."
"I know I'm sorry."
"It's not your fault, you're ready to go. But did the boys leave?"
"Um yeah this morning they left for the airport."
"You didn't go with?"
"Nah, I needed sleep, had a rough night."
"Awe my poor babe, what was wrong?"
"I had a really bad stomach ache and a super bad head ache."
"How are you feeling now?"
"Great, considering you're here now." I said with a wink.
Brendon laughed, "Cute."
Finally Melanie came out with a coat and there was a little exchange of dirty looks between her and Brendon. They would just have to get used to each other. At dinner they did seem to get along better so I was happy. But Brendon wanted to go home right after dinner, he said he was tired. I think that was fine with Melanie. I'm just glad they knew who they were now, but the next three days were going to be just us girls. After we got back to the flat Melanie went right up but I stayed in the car with Brandon for a little bit.
"Thank you for dinner, that was very nice of you." I said kissing his cheek.
"Anything for you." Hearing those words shocked me.
"What did you say?"
"Anything for you?"
"Are you ok?"
"Yeah, I think I'm starting to not feel well again."
"Do you want me to walk you up?"
"No, I'll be okay. But in four days it's you and me okay?"
"Yes! I look forward to it, I'll give you some space with Melanie though."
"Thank you, you're the best." I hugged him and he kissed the top of my head. "I'll see you in a couple days."
I went upstairs and went to bed. I was still so tired and I wanted to have a lot of energy for the next couple of days.
For the next three days we went sight seeing, out to dinner, to clubs, watched my Disney movies, cooked, baked, shopped, it was so much fun! But unfortunately when Thursday came I had to bring Melanie to the airport.
"I had so much fun, it was amazing to actually see you." Melanie said.
"I know." I was going to cry.
"And Brendon seems great, and things seem to really be going well with you. Just figure out you before you get too involved with him."
"I will, I just need to fully get over Niall."
"That would be good, I'm going to miss you."
"I'm going to miss you too!" I started crying a little.
"Don't cry! I love you and we'll be reunited soon!" Melanie said hugging me. "Plus I'll see you whenever you decide to come visit your parents."
"True, that will be in a couple months though. But I'm already excited."
"Me too! But I really need to go."
"I know, text me when you land please."
We hugged one more time and I watched as she got into the security line. I just had an amazing week with my best friend, I have a new boyfriend, and things seem to be on almost the right track for once. I walked away with tears in my eyes but also a smile on my face.
