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.


6. Chicken Soup, The Lorax and Sweatshirts

I felt sick to my stomach. I thought I was going to pass-out or worse, throw up. Why would he come all the way from the U.S. to see me. The night before I left he said that it was no big deal, he would get over it. He said he would get over me... I ran to the bathroom, thinking about what happened the night before I left, and vomited.

"Alice, sweetie, are you okay?"

I looked up from the toilet, whipping the vomit on the t-shirt, to find Sarah and Louis, both, looking down at me. "Ya, just go on without me. I think I am just going to watch a movie and go to bed. Louis, will you tell the boys that i'm sorry I can't meet them tonight."

"Ya, I hope you feel better."

He walked back to the door, but didn't shut it behind him. He was probably waiting for Sarah.

"I can stay, if yo......" I cut her off by getting up and giving her a hug.

"Thanks babe, but all you would do is watch me sleep. GO!" I was pushing her back to the door where Louis was still standing. "I want all the details when you get back."

I got one last 'feel better' from Louis and one last hug form Sarah. I closed the door and started the shower. I hopped in and started thinking about why Grant had sent me those flowers. Maybe someone was trying to play a prank on me. It could be Sarah. I did really creep her out right before we left with this fake twitter account. I was sending her all these tweets and DM's that actually happened to me and her, but I made it seem like the exact same thing was happening to this other person. Yet, I don't think it could have been Sarah. She looked as scared and as surprised as I did when reading the note. I know she couldn't have faked it, because she was the worst at acting. But, I couldn't think of anyone else. I got out of the shower and into my pj's, which consisted of sweat pants and a tank-top. I was just wishing for one of my moms big sweatshirts when there was a knock on the door. I was hesitant to open it. I didn't want it to be another letter from Grant, I did not feel like throwing up again tonight. I pulled the door slowly to find Niall standing in the doorway.

"Sarah called and told me you weren't feeling well. She and I both wanted you to have company tonight."

"Come on in. Sorry for the mess, Sarah had no clue on what she was going to wear for tonight." I flopped down on the bed, while Niall went to go turn the TV on, setting down the two brown paper bags he brought in with him. He was wearing sweats and a t-shirt. He grabbed one of the paper bags and came to sit down next to me on the bed.

"Sarah said that you like watching Disney movies when your sick, so I asked Liam if I could borrow this....." He pulled out 'The Lorax' and handed it to me to look at.

"I hope that's okay? Sarah told me its one of your favorites. Sarah also told me that you love wearing your mums baggy sweatshirts when your sick, so I brought one of mine. I know its probably nothing like your mums, but its my favorite one, so I think it will do. DAMN I ALMOST FORGOT! I got chicken noddle soup!"

"Niall, you really didn't have to do this for me."

"I know, but I wanted to."

He winked at me, while I pulled on his sweatshirt. THE HELL, this was WAY comfier  than my moms. Niall got up to pick the other bag off the floor, and pulled out the two bowls of chicken noodle soup. He handed me mine and sat back down on the bed screaming 'YUM'. From there we just started talking. Him doing most of it, but by the time we were done with our soup we were on the topic of strange obsessions. Once I told Niall mine I know I would regret it, he couldn't stop laughing.

"You said you wouldn't laugh." I hit Niall playfully with my pillow, but it did no good he was still laughing.

"I'm sorry, but out of all the things you could have a strange obsession with yours is gnomes. Why?" I hit him playfully again, before I replied.

"Well you know, there cute and.." I really couldn't remember why I loved gnomes so much. I yawed. I was fading quickly.

Niall must have noticed,"Your tried, wow am I that boring? Come on under the covers you go, lets start the movie." I grabbed Niall's arm when he grabbed the movie laying next to me.

"No I want to talk more. I like talking to you." I said this in my tried sleeping voice, which made Niall kiss me on the nose and say, "No babe, its time for bed." He put in the movie and pressed play. He climbed back in bed and I cuddled up next to him. I was fading fast, but remembered something I had to ask Niall before I blacked out.

"Niall, you never told me your weird obsession was."

"Its hats."

"I wouldn't really call that a 'weird obsession'."

"Okay, I collect leprechauns, like stuffed ones. But I was afraid to tell you because leprechauns and gnomes are supost  to be mortal enemies, so I didn't know is you would still date me after I told you." I giggled at his lame assumption, and nudged in closer to his warm body.

"Niall, thanks for taking care of me." I knew he was staring at me, but i kept my eyes on the movie.

"Anytime love." He kissed my forehead and I could feel his body relax beneath me. I fell asleep a short while after that, right when Zac Efrons character is going out of his fake world and stepping into the real one.
