Zayn’s POV

 

I fidgeted nervously with the sleeve on my jacket, staring blankly at my phone waiting for Niall to pick up. I’d finally plucked up the courage to contact Liam today. I doubted he’d answer a phone call but a text is the invasive kind of communication that one can’t really ignore. On the fifth ring Niall finally answered the phone and I sighed in relief.

                ‘Niall, thank God you answered.’ I exhaled the breath I hadn’t realised I’d been holding.

                ‘Hello Zayn’ Niall answered coldly. I took a mental step back. The icy tone in his voice was so uncharacteristic that I almost started crying then and there. I couldn’t stand the thought that I’d upset Liam my strong best friend, but Niall? Niall was so loving and energetic; the thought that I’d compromised that tore me apart.

                ‘I got your message. I’m so sorry I haven’t been in touch. You were right of course, I needed to sort my shit out and contact him. I guess I was just so-‘ Niall cut me off

                ‘So what Zayn? So busy fucking his girlfriend to take the time out and give him a call? Too busy wallowing in your own self pity to consider how your BEST FRIEND was feeling?’ Niall roared at me. His words caused an ache deep in my stomach that hurt more than if I’d actually been punched.

                ‘We didn’t have sex!’ I cried in self defence ‘He wont reply to my messages Niall, I’m trying. None of this was supposed to happen, it was a total accident.’ I cried into the phone helplessly. Niall’s caring nature took over at the sound of my broken sobs into the phone.

                ‘Okay Zayn, take a step back. Explain what happened to me from the start. And do not fuck me around because I swear I will not tolerate any shit from you, not after what you’ve done to Liam’

                ‘Thank you so much Niall, I don’t know what I would do without you-‘

                ‘I’m waiting’ he answered coldly.

                ‘So basically after my gran died I was distraught, right? She was the one person in the world who I was still just Zain to. None of you lads were here for me to talk to, and I felt terrible about letting down fans and leaving the tour. Basically, I was wallowing in a pit of my own self pity, like you said.

                ‘So I when I got the comfort text from Danielle inviting me to her flat warming I didn’t really think about how it would look to Liam. Especially since my intentions were to get shit faced drunk and forget about how alone I was feeling.

                ‘She was drunk, but the text she sent me the other day basically said that she was into me and wanted to get with me.

                ‘I was drunk too, in fact I hardly remembered it. I know being drunk isn’t an excuse for my actions. I just want Liam to know that sober Zayn, the Zayn he was best friends with, would never EVER do anything like that.’ I finished up. Niall was silent on his end of the line for a minute, chewing things over in his little blonde head I assumed. Finally he broke the silence.

                ‘I don’t think I’m the one you should be telling this, Zayn.’ Niall chided gently. ‘I think you need to face Liam in person and tell him exactly what you’ve just told me so he knows the whole situation.’

                ‘But he didn’t reply to my text-‘

                ‘Well obviously, idiot. He’s not going to want to face you.’ Niall interrupted. ‘I can only imagine what he’s convincing himself happened. Because he doesn’t know what happened he’s just going to make up crazy stories in his head, blaming himself and blaming you.’

                ‘I just don’t think I can face him yet though Niall. I feel terrible’

                ‘You’re going to have to eventually’ Niall chewed me out.

                ‘Give me a week or two to let Liam have his space?’ I asked ‘Niall do you think you could maybe have a little talk to him for me? Try to convince him to be open to my end of the story? I couldn’t stand it if he thought I was a liar as well as the asshole who stole his girlfriend’ Niall sighed heavily.

                ‘I can give it a shot. I’m not happy about this Zayn. But I’m less happy when we’re not a group and I want this whole situation patched up. I’ll try talking to him, but I doubt he’ll listen to me. Eventually he’ll need to hear it from you’

                ‘I know, I will eventually talk to him. Thank you so much Niall, you’re the best. I don’t know what I would be doing without you’ I thanked him repeatedly. He hung up, obviously exasperated. Now I’d put Niall in the middle of my fuck up. I couldn’t hate myself more.

 

Sierra’s POV

 

It was Thursday morning and I opened my eyes to my apartment totally redecorated, thanks to Lea’s eye for interior design. The purple, blue, green, black and white colour scheme livened the whole place up in the forms of curtains, cushions, rugs and custom coloured stereo systems. We’d spent the better part of yesterday shopping and decorating my apartment so it actually reflected my personal taste. Thank god it no longer resembled a bland beige and white hotel suite. I hadn’t heard from Liam, but I didn’t want to contact him the day after we hung out. I guess I just didn’t want to be clingy or whatever. He seemed like a really good guy, sacrificing a day of his busy schedule to take me to all the typical London attractions that I’m sure he’d visited a thousand times already. Not to mention that kiss in the thunder. Wow. I still didn’t know what to think of that aside from the fact the he was a good kisser. I was kind of confused. I hadn’t checked up on mum or my friends since I got here three days ago, aside from flicking the ‘Arrived safely, love you’ message. So I wasn’t surprised when my phone started buzzing, announcing a call from Kalia. I answered it grinning, I missed my best friend.

                ‘Hello?’

                ‘Hey Sierra! It’s Kalia. How’s London? Hows your flat? Have you been to uni yet?’ Kalia started bombarding me with more questions than the French inquisition.

                ‘Hey Kalia’ I replied smiling into the phone ‘London is wet and beautiful, my flat has recently been redecorated thanks to my neighbour and no I haven’t been to uni yet.’ I answered in a nutshell.

                ‘Awh come on S, you know I want more details than that’ I could practically hear her winking into the phone. ‘Rumour has it you’ve been spotted out and about in London with Leroy someone or other from some boy band. Tara’s quite upset that you haven’t talked to her about it’ she chided. My jaw practically hit the floor and a thousand questions ran through my mind. She obviously meant Liam. How would anyone know that I’d hung out with him? We must have been photographed out when we were out on Tuesday. Somewhere through my panicked subconscious fog, I remembered that Kalia was waiting for a response.

                ‘Er, yeah I guess so. His name’s Liam and he’s in One Direction. But I didn’t just meet him I met all of them. They’re really nice.’ I mumbled lamely. I didn’t want to give too much away. I mean, I trusted Kalia but I just wasn’t ready to admit what had happened between me and Liam the other day; especially since we’d only just met a few days ago. I sighed. I was not the kind of girl to go around head over heels for boys. I only had one boyfriend back in New Zealand and that was more of a best friend turned crush kind of thing. What I felt for Liam was so unexpected and alien to me. I wondered if this was how he felt about Danielle.

                ‘Ooooooooooooh la la!’ Kalia giggled at me. ‘So were you on a date or something?’ she pushed

                ‘No!’ I said way too quickly. ‘I mean, no. He was just showing me around London. That’s all’ I tried to save myself, but the pregnant silence on the phone told me that Kalia was onto it.

                ‘You like this boy? Already? Wow! This is so unlike you. He must be pretty special’

                ‘Like I said, he’s just a friend showing me around’

                ‘Yeah, just a super famous, super hot, super buff friend from what Tara’s shown me. He is hot

                ‘He’s okay’ I tasted the word in my mouth, it felt uncomfortable. I never liked lying. This conversation had quickly grown into something I’d rather not talk about. ‘Er, Kalia. I have to go, the uh pizza guy is here. I’ll message you soon okay? Love you.’

                ‘Love you too S! We need to talk more. I don’t wanna loose touch with you just ‘coz you’re on the other side of the world buddying up with some hot famous boys.’ I sighed exasperatedly at her persistence.

                ‘Of course not K. You’re my one and only’ I teased and hung up before she could continue her relentless interrogation.  Friends I thought to myself, with a shake of the head.

 

Harry’s POV

I could see the wheels turning slowly in Louis’s head. I smiled at his concentration. One of my favourite things (aside from flirting, being naked and being naked) was watching Louis do something he loved. Currently the thing that he loved was trying to fix Liam. Believe me, I was all for fixing poor Li-Li’s broken heart. I just didn’t trust the girl they were trying to use to fix him. First of all, I thought using a girl as a rebound to set Liam straight was low, and I thought One Direction was better than that. I also didn’t like the amount of interest Louis had taken in her. Louis was my BooBear. I wasn’t about to let some random Kiwi (a fan taught me that’s what New Zealanders call themselves) sneak into our relationship.

                ‘I’ve got it!’ Louis declared, his eyes twinkling with excitement. I loved seeing him like this.

                ‘What?’ I rolled over so I was facing Lou. We were lying on the couch at our flat and he had his arm around me, we were kind of spooning in a weird way.

                ‘We need to set up a date for Sierra and Liam’ he declared, as if this was the most genius idea ever.

                ‘Well, obviously BooBear. But I think it’s a little soon, don’t ya think?’ I ran a hand down the side of his flawless face. I didn’t like this talk about Sierra. I wanted to prank Niall, or maybe just lie here and watch a movie with my favourite person in the world.

                ‘Yeah, you’re right Haz. Maybe we should just wait for a week or two for him to settle down back into London life.’

                ‘Mmm’ I murmured quietly into Louis’ neck, stroking his arm gently. His breathing hitched, and I smirked at the effect I had on him. Or at least I thought it was my effect.

                ‘Or maybe we should go on a double date with them or something!’ He exclaimed. I sagged slightly, argh more Sierra talk I grumbled internally.

                ‘Whatever.’ I whined and rolled away from him.

                ‘Don’t be like that Harry. You know you’re the only one I want. I just want to fix up Liam.’ Louis explained when he realised that he’d upset me.

                ‘I’m not being like anything. I just don’t want to keep talking about Sierra alright? She’s a nice girl and all, but I’m uncomfortable with the amount of interest you’ve taken in her’ I pouted.

                ‘Awh, is my baby getting jealous?’ Louis teased. I scowled at him. ‘You’re so adorable when you scowl Haz’ Of course this only made me scowl further. He laughed at me.

                ‘It’s not funny Lou! Drop it.’ I moaned.

                ‘Okay, fine. Sorry’ Louis backed off, obviously put out at my lack of participation in his teasing. I felt a twang of guilt in my stomach that I’d upset him over something so petty. I rolled back so I was facing him and pecked him lightly on the cheek.

                ‘It’s nothing BooBear. I just want to spend some time with you without everyone else’s drama. Cute as you are playing cupid, I’d rather your concentration was aimed at me.’ I grinned at him cheekily.

                ‘You know I’m always concentrating on you babe’ Louis wrapped me into a famous BooBear hug and I melted in his arms. I smiled into his shoulder and thought to myself how nice it’d be to just stay here like this forever.
