12. Save You Tonight

~Cat's Pov~

He turned around at the sound of my voice, eyes twinkling.

"Hey Cat!" he said walking up to me. "I haven't seen you in while." Two months and 4 days, exactly. Wow, Cat. Have you sunken that low? In a way, stalking One Direction?

"I know! So what are you doing here?" I asked him.

"I um...live here." he said.

I'm pretty sure my eyes were as wide as saucers by then. "Really? I live here too!"

"What apartment?"

"8B." I said recalling what Holland told me not to forget.

"Wow, me and the boys are in 8F! It's down the hall from yours."

How lucky am I?! Meeting One Direction, and now living on the same floor as them?! I tried my best not to fangirl, but on the inside I was. Majorly.

"That's awesome! You guys wanna come over in a little while?" I asked him. I'm sure Holland wouldn't mind. Especially since Liam would be there. I don't care if he still has feelings for me, I will get them together if it's the last thing I do. I think it's fun playing matchmaker. But did I have a match for myself? Nope. Nada. Zip. I mean, seriously. Who could fall for me?

"Sure. So I guess I'll see you later. Bye Cat." he said saluting as he walked back down the hall.

"Bye." I called walking to our room. It was kinda weird saying bye, because we were both headed the same way.

I opened the door and walked to where Holland was lounging on the couch, texting someone on her phone.

"Who are ya texting?" I asked her. Hmm...I wonder who it could be?

She shoved her phone back into her pocket. "No one."

Of course she would say that. So original.

"I have some exciting news!" I said.

"What?" she asked getting up and gravitating towards the kitchen.

"One Direction lives down the hall!" I said excitedly hoping for a fangirl reaction from her.

She nodded slowly. "I am aware of that."

I froze. "You knew?" I asked with a dangerous tone in my voice.

She looked kinda scared for a second. "That's the whole reason we moved here, dummy!"

"Awwh, why didn't you tell me?!" I whined at her.

"It was a surprise!" she said, then she paused. "I wanna talk to them again..."

"Good! Because they are coming over her soon." I told her.

"What? I need to go make myself look pretty!" she said walking down the hall and into the bathroom. I silently chuckled. That girl.

I sat down on the couch and looked out one of the windows that was in the living room. I couch see the city, and Big Ben. It was beautiful. It was starting to get dark, and the lights twinkled and sparkled. Even though I live in England, I had only seen Big Ben in pictures. Holland and I didn't see it when we had come for the concert in May. I made a mental note. Tomorrow, I am going out to see Big Ben, and the London Eye. And maybe some other places. It would be my tourist day. I can put on an American accent, and pretend. That'll be fun.

I heard a knock at the door, an sat up. I walked over and answered it. There stood all five boys, beaming at me.

"Hello..." I said. It was acually kind of uncomfortable. "Won't you come in?" I asked them all.

"Sure, love!" Lou said walking inside first. Harry stunted in after him, and then Zayn, Liam, and lastly leprechaun Niall.

Holland finally emerged from the bathroom. "Hey guys." she said.

"Hi." they said in unison.

"I'm hungry!" Niall said.

"Mate, your always hungry." Liam said turning to face him.

"We could get something to eat and bring it back since we don't have anything here." I suggested. We did need to go food shopping.

"Yay! I'll go with her!" Niall said.

"Me too!" Louis said jumping up.

"I can't live without Boobear, so me three!" Harry added.

"I'm coming too." Zayn said. Maybe he sensed what I was thinking. Get Holland and Liam by themselves. But last time I checked, Zayn liked her right? Maybe, I don't know.

"Okay, let's get going." I said. Holland just stood there like an awkward turtle with a blank face. She knew how this would end...

"We can take our van." Lou said, already walking out the door with Niall at his heels.

I mumbled at quick 'bye' and we all walked into the hallway. I was walking in the lift when I noticed something; Niall wasn't going in.

I looked at him and he gave an explanation. "Claustrophobic." I nodded an 'Oh' and stepped out of the lift.

"I'll go with him, and we'll meet you guys down there, alright?" the rest of the boys nodded, and they disappeared behind the shiny metal doors. I walked toward the stairs, as did Niall, and prepared to walk the eight flights.

As we were walking I missed a step and started to fall forwards. Oh, this is going to hurt... I braced for impact, but it never came. Instead I felt pressure on my collarbone. Niall had caught me. Me being my clumsy self, almost fell again trying to stand up.

"Thanks." I told him. "That would have really hurt."

"No problem. But I'm clumsy too." I could feel my face heating up. No, stop blushing right now! Thankfully, I did. And we walked to the bottom without another word.

"Took you long enough." Harry said when we approached them.

"Harry, we took the stairs, dearie. Don't you remember?" I sad in a sickenly sweet way.

He smirked and we all went outside and into Lou's orange van. It was quite peculiar, but at the same time really cool.

"What should we get?" Louis asked from the driver's seat.

"Taco Bell." I said from the backseat with Niall and Zayn. [are there taco bells in England?]

"Okay." he said. He drove out of the little parking structure we were in, and down streets I didn't recognize.

"So...anybody got any girlfriends?" I asked them.

"Zayn and Lou do." Harry said smirking. Now I get it...

"Ooh, and what are those two lovely ladies names?"

"Her name's Perrie." Zayn said smiling.

"And I have Eleanor." Louis said.

"Awwh, that's adorable!" I squealed.

"You gotta boyfriend?" Zayn asked me.

"Once..." I said recalling that somewhat painful memory. It's not just that he was abusive, but the fact that he tried to ruin mine and Liam's friendship is unforgivable!

"Oh." was all he said. There was an awkward silence for a bit until Lou asked us what we wanted at the drive-thru menu board thingy.

"Four tacos!" I said.

"I'll have seven." Niall challenged.

"Oh, and get Holland a bean burrito supreme!" I yelled at him.

The other boys ordered, and we got our food in no time. Lou began the drive home and we just mad small talk while the smell of tacos tempted us.

When we arrived, I grabbed the bag and made a beeline to my flat. I need to see how Holland was doing! But alas, Niall was running after me like his life depended on having the bag of food.

"Cat, why are you running? Give me the tacos!" he whined at me. He wasn't very fast.

"I will but, come here quick." I gestured for him to come, and he did. The other three boys weren't running, so they were out of earshot. "You can't tell anyone, especially not the boys." he gave me a curt nod and I continued. "The reason I'm hurrying is because I was hoping I could sorta spy on Holland and Liam through the peephole in our door." I had checked it earlier, and it worked both ways. "You see, she really likes him. Bu, it too late now." I said pointing to the boys who were very close.

"Ohhh. I get it. I won't tell, so gimme the tacos!" he said grabbing the bag from my hand. The other boys had reached us now, and they were walking towards the lift. I went with Niall again, but this time, I didn't trip. Thank God.

We were now on the top floor opening the door to find... Holland chatting with Liam.

I grave them tacos and Hollad her burrito and we all ate.

"Got anything planned, Cat?" Liam asked me.

"Yeah, I was acually going to go sightseeing tomorrow. I'm going to put on an American accent and fool people." I said.

"Do need a guide? We've all lived here for some time." Niall asked.

"Sure. You can come, but be ready at 10:00." I told him.

He smiled at me.

For the rest of the night, we talked about random things, and...yeah that's basically it. We just talked and got to know each other better.

At about 11:30 they left.

"Bye, Niall, Liam, Harry, Lou, and Zayn!" I called as they were leaving.

In response I heard scattered 'Bye Cat!'s as they walked down the hall.

I walked into my bare bedroom and grabbed a spare blanket we had brought in from Hollands car. No pillow tonight. Oh, well.

I fell into a dreamless sleep thinking about...everything.
