18. Strange Visits, Same People

Soon after my conversation with Louis, I fall asleep, and I awake a few hours later to the sound of my doorbell.
Again, emptiness by my side and I can't help but to feel disappointed that Louis left me again.
I get out of my bed and drag myself to the door, which I open without bothering to check who it is.
My jaw drops, and I practically jump into her arms.
"Marie!" I yell, "Skyler, Marie's here!"
"She's not home," Marie replies, "I already texted her. I wanted to surprise you."
"Oh my gosh I missed you!" I say as I close the door, except some force pushes through before I finish closing.
"Hey babe," a familiar British accent breaks through, "don't close me out."
When I see Louis's face pop out from behind the door, I allow myself to smile a little bit.
I remember Paul's words, that we have to lie to our family and friends about Louis and me. Here's friend number one.
"Babe," I reply, "why'd you leave?"
I turn to Marie, who raises her eyebrows, impressed.
Louis wraps his arm around my waist and surprises me with a deep kiss.
When we release, I involuntarily smile, and he smiles back.
"I brought you a cupcake love," he says, "from the little cupcake shop you've been dying to try."
Looking down at his hand, I see a little bag labeled "Cutie Cupcakes" and I smile knowing that the REAL Louis, the one I'm not dating, thought to buy me a cupcake to make me feel better.
Louis brings the cupcake out to the kitchen, announcing as he leaves the room, "The boys will be here soon. You two relax and catch up; I'll bring out some drinks."
"The boys?" Marie asks.
Leave it to her not to know who One Direction is.
Marie was never one to follow the mold, always proud to be different. So I'm not surprised that she doesn't realize that my "boyfriend" is a member of the most famous boyband alive.
I laugh a little, "Louis- my boyfriend, he's a member of One Direction."
"What? One Direction? Is that that boyband everyone's always talking about?"
I nod my head.
"They're so hot!" she says, "Especially the blonde one!"
"That's Niall," I say, less enthusiastically, "I guess they'll all be here soon. You can meet them."
"Are you going to introduce me?" she asks excitedly.
"Nah, I thought I'd just leave you in the corner until they leave. Of course I will! But hands off Niall- he's mine." I say without thinking.
"But I thought you were dating-"
"Niall's her best friend," Louis interrupts from behind us, "that's what she meant."
I smile at him as a thank you, but he doesn't even look over at me, simply placing the drinks down in front of Marie and me.
Soon, I hear a knock at the door.
I answer it, and I'm bombarded by four boys and one girl.
Harry gives me a hug, Zayn messes up my hair, Liam gives me a "bro" handshake, and Niall plants a big kiss on my cheek. I laugh as the whole scene unfolds.
Skyler has already run over to Marie and given her hugs, which means it's introduction time.
"Boys, this is Marie, mine and Skyler's best friend ever. Marie, this is," I say as I point to each one, "Harry, Skyler's boy toy, Zayn, his own boy toy," everyone laughs, "Liam, you know my boyfriend Louis, and finally, Niall."
Then it clicks.
Marie is, to say the least, beautiful.
She's pretty thin, with decent sized boobs and a cute little butt. She's got long brown hair that she's straightened to perfection, and her make up is done amazingly. She's a small little thing, only about 5'1".
And she's obviously Irish, covered in adorable freckles.
She's Niall's dream girl, height and all.
"Uhm, Niall was it?" Marie says, "Would you mind helping me with my luggage?"
Niall nods, and the two leave the house.
"Your boyfriend Louis?" Liam asks.
"Nice!" Zayn says to Louis, giving him a high-five.
"It's not real," Harry says, "They just have to lie to their family and friends and fans about it."
"Because of the fair?" Zayn asks.
"Yeah," I say, "Paul doesn't want us to upset the fans by saying it was a lie, so we're just pretending."
"But I thought you loved Niall?" Liam says.
My jaw drops, and I give the dirtiest look I can muster to Skyler.
"It wasn't her," Zayn says.
"Sorry love," Harry says, "I thought they could help."
"Does Niall know?" I say, worried.
"Does Niall know what?" a voice emerges near the door, and we all turn to see Niall and Marie holding bags.
"That we're gonna watch a movie mate!" Liam says.
"What movie?" Niall asks.
"Toy story!" Liam yells.
"Noooooo," all of the boys protest.
