Staying in the Moment

Alice and her best friend Sarah decide that the perfect place to go to college would be Oxford University, in the beautiful city of London, England. But, they get an unexpected surprise when they meet Greg Horan, Niall Horan's brother from One Dircetion. As Alice and Sarah get thrown into the lives of the five famous boys, Alice's ex-boyfriend, Grant, comes back into her life. Bringing back new and old feelings. Alice has to pick how she loves and learns that life is not what she expected. On the other hand, Sarah's keeping secrets that will get her into nothing but trouble.

Alice's Point of View: 

"Hannah you really need to learn to shut up sometimes!' I practically scream at Hannah Gale, a soon to be freshman at Oxford University. 

"Hey that guy was asking for some sass!"

We all just stare back at her, rolling our eyes. "Hannah he was being polite!" Allie says, swatting Hannah playfully in the arm. 

"He was creepy. I would have accepted a free drink from any other guy in there, except him."

"Okay babe, whatever you say" Ella says, observably getting tired of this conversation. Hannah flips all of use off, which makes me laugh, because Hannah  is way to innocent to flip anyone off. She reminds me a lot of Liam. We stride up to Funky Buddha  around 10:45, knowing that if we got there any later we couldn't get in for free. 

"Phil," I say to the body guard with a wink, "Oh Phil, hows my favorite body guard doing tonight?!" He just stares at me with a blank expression, like the one the guards at the Queens home hold. 

"Love, you don't have to sweet talk me into getting in anymore" he states with a smug smile on his face. He leans down and whispers into my ear, "You know your my favorite girl in town."  I swat him on the shoulder and give him a wink before adding, "And you Phil know how to sweet talk a girl.' He laughs off my comment, letting us inside. 

My hips start swaying to the music almost instantly. This has been one of the best nights of my life. I haven't thought about Sarah being prego's or Grant or Niall or anyone else. Tonight, I felt free. Hannah's tugging me towards the dance floor, as I hear Aliie and Ella saying there going to get us drinks and find a table. I somehow lose Hannah in the crowd of bodies grinding against each other. I feel hands grab my hips as I try to make my way back through the crowds of people to find Allie and Ella.

"GET OF ME YOUR PREV!" I shout over the music.

"Chill babe, it's just me" I hear Grants voice whisper in my ear.  I turn around to find his deep blue eyes staring into mine.

"You know this is supposed to be my girls night out." I tell him, giving him my cheekest smile, going under some type of weird spell of his. 

"HEY!" he says in defense,"Will and I just happened to be roaming the streets of London and found this beautiful club and decided to stop in."

"So this has nothing to do with Sarah telling you?" I say with a smug smile.

"Not at all." He's really close to me. I can feel his warm breath against my face, as he spoke. Before I even know whats is happening he kisses me. Slow at first, but then more powerful, his tongue sweeping against mine for dominance. When he finally releases, I look up to find a very confused looking Grant. It's like he didn't know  if he should have kissed me or not. Looking at him like this makes his spell some how drain out of my system. 

"I have to go!' I scream over the music. 

"ALICE WAIT!" I hear him call for me, as I push my way through the massive crowed. I look up to find the other pair of blue  eyes I love so much. He was standing on the steps leading down to the dance floor. Fuck, he had to have saw everything. Niall takes one quick step backwards, looking heartbroken, and moving toward the door.

"Alice please, can we talk about this." Grant says, grabbing my arm, pulling me in closer to him. "I know you felt something."

"HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL! " I take a deep breath trying to clam myself down.

"Grant I'm not the same person I was a couple of months ago. I have changed....." I swallow deep knowing what I'm going to say next will hurt him, "I don't love you anymore. I have moved on." That was one of the hardest things I have every said. 

"But I love you. I'm not letting you slip out of my hands again."

"Grant...... I have to go." 

"What so you can go chase him! If you leave this club, Alice, I'm not going to chase after you again."

I stare deep into his eyes and say, "I didn't want you to chase after me anyway." I start jogging through the body's of people, hoping I can catch Niall at the door, and ignoring Grant shouting after me. 


Niall's Point of View: 

I'm a fucking idiot! She hasn't called you for weeks! Of course she was going to be with another guy! I wasn't good enough for her. I started feeling tears form in my eyes as I made my way back to our table to grab my jacket. 

"NIALL! You okay bud?" Liam says, sliding toward the end of the booth. 

"I'm fine just...." I say catching a tear with the palm of my hand, "just need some air." I start walking faster toward the exit, knowing Liam will be on my tail in a matter of seconds. The cool night air hits my face once I walk out of the club, cameras flashing. 


"FUCK OFF!" I scream giving the pap's the finger. Once I made my way through the body of cameras, Liam comes sprinting out of the club, cameras forcing there attention on him. 

"NIALL WAIT!" I hear Alice scream behind me, but I keep walking, trying to clear my face of any sign of me crying over her.

"GOD DAMN IT NIALL! JUST LISTEN TO ME JUST WAIT UP!" I feel her grab my arm, breathing heavily from all the running. A  shiver runs down my spine like it usually does every time she touches me. 

"Niall please can we talk?", she waits a minute before adding, "You saw him kiss me didn't you."


"Oh so now I'm some kind of soulless monster" she states weakly.

"Wow! You pick up quickly babe!" I scream back at her.

I can see tears forming in her eyes before she says, "You can say whatever the fuck you want about me Horan. Anything you want, see if I give a crap. Tell them I have no soul; that I'm a god damn heart-breaker! I DARE YOU TO TELL THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD THAT I'M JUST A STUPID HOE THAT GIVES HER HEART OUT TO JUST ANYONE!" She takes a couple deep breaths trying to clam herself down. 

"You want to know who that was? It was Grant, you know my ex-boyfriend. I think I told you about him. He was the one that I caught cheating on me."

Alice had told me about him, alright. She even said that I was the first man she trusted after they broke up. 

"Alice, I'm sorry...I had no clue it was him." I feel guilty, but I still have anger for what she did. That's not just going to go away.  

"The fuck you are sorry....Why can't you  just-" I don't let her finish. I kiss her softly and gently. I can taste my favorite kind of beer in her mouth, as she parts her lips letting me inside. I break away first, pressing our foreheads together, wanting to stay in this moment forever.

I whisper in her ear, what seems like hours later,"Tell me you don't have feelings for him. Tell me that that kiss meant nothing." 

"Niall-I-It-I....." she says. 

"That's what I thought." I give her one last kiss before crossing the street, heading only god knows where. 

"NIALL PLEASE WIAT!" I hear her say, but she has no time to catch me before a new wave of traffic separates us.  



A/N: So I hoped you enjoyed the second to last chapter of Staying in the Moment. I loved writing this even though I feel that my writing is shit. Um, sorry for using the word fuck like 80 times in this chapter. Thank you to anyone that has read this and kept reading this, staying with me along the way. The last chapter should be up tonight :D I haven't really talked about any of the other boys in the last couple of chapters, but that will be all sorted out in the last chapter....... I hope. Tell me who you want Alice to end up with. Are you #TeamGrant or #TeamNiall? Love you all xxx
