COMPLETED. Alira Somers. A 19 year old girl who isn't that much of a fan of One Direction. But her best friend, Jenna, won tickets to a little 'promo' about One Direction. Little did they know, One Direction was performing. That's where they lay eyes on both of them for the first time. That's when Alira changed her views on them. That's when 2/5 will fall for her. That's when all hell breaks loose in her life.

**Blurb is misleading, it isn't as good as I thought it would be. Personally, it's not my best but by all means, if you want to read it go ahead! Just let me warn you, it's not as good as the blurb says.

Chapter 11: ex-best friend? hopefully not.


Ali’s POV


‘This place is absolutely gorgeous!’ I squealed in awe. 

I’ve always wanted a beach house and this house has everything i’ve ever wanted. The house was just completely ravishing. The bottom floor had a sitting room, the kitchen, the laundry room and the gym. The sitting room had a 54 inch tv, three plush sofas and a love seat. The coffee table was on top of a soft orange carpet. The sofas were all cream colours. The love seat was a bright green. The kitchen was massive! I love to cook and with this kitchen, i’d be able to cook so much! The gym had a treadmill, a bicycle and all these weights. 

The second floor had 4 bedrooms and a window seat. The four bedrooms were equally big. Jenna and I would be sharing. Liam and Niall are sharing one and so are Larry Stylinson. Zayn got to have one to himself. Harry’s and Lou’s were messy already, I don’t know how they do it but everything was on the floor. Liam and Niall’s were half messy, half not. Literally. Liam’s side was just spotless and Niall’s was everywhere. Zayn’s room, well, there’s nothing much. He got the room with the biggest mirror, we should’ve gotten that one. Our room is how any teenage girl would keep hers. Clothes everywhere, yet it’s immaculate.

The third floor, (yes, it’s three story!), had an extra room. A bigger bathroom and another sitting room with the exact same contents of the one on the bottom floor. And this floor had a window seat. 

All floors had one gigantic window for a wall and it overlooked the beach. The beach had clear blue waters and soft white sand. I honestly love Manly. Plus, we get our own private little beach. 

‘I can’t believe we’re staying here for the weekend’ Jenna squealed along with me. She wanted a beach house too. She’s rather this life than a city life. 

‘Guys, did you check out the pool?’ Liam says, walking through the door.

‘There’s a pool!?’ Jenna screams.

‘All beach houses have pools, babe.’ Zayn says, walking into the room with a smile on his face.

We both jump up and run out the back door. Sure enough, there’s a pool. It was so big, it went from end to end. There was a little lounge on the right of the doorway and it was a soft orange as well. There was a table and a spa on the other side of the door. This house has everything.

I stood at the edge of the pool, it was beautiful, there was a little waterfall directly in front of me. It gushed down a pile of rocks and into the pool. There was also leaping stones in the middle, leading towards the gate on the other side. I kept staring at it in awe. Then, I felt big hands on my back and next thing I know, i was plunged into the water.

I pushed off from the floor and screamed. Harry was laughing his head off and Jenna and Zayn were laughing too but slowly moving to the door. It was Harry. I know it was. I pulled myself out and ran towards him.

‘HAZZA, GIVE ME A HUG!’ I yelled, running at him with my arms wide open and water dripping off everywhere on me. His smile dropped off his face and he walked backwards.

‘No, this is a new Jack Wills top. Do not ruin this top’ He says, eyeing the water all over me. I smirked and walked towards him faster. Jenna and Zayn were in hysterics by then. And I jumped on Harry, we both fell on to the lounge. I laughed and yelled at Niall.

‘NIALL! LET’S GIVE HARRY A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE!’ Niall ran forward and grabbed Harry’s arms. I grabbed his legs and we ran towards the pool and dropped him in. He jumps out of the water and his curls fall around his face. 

‘You are so dead, Ali’ Harry says in his deep voice and he jumps out of the water. 

He starts walking over to me, very menacingly. I stared into his green eyes to see if he was bluffing. Nope, no bluff. I better run. As I turned, I felt his hand wrap around my wrist. Ah, shit. I’m dead. He pulled me into his chest and wraps his arm around my waist. I thrash around. My arms flailing everywhere and my legs kicking in the air.

‘LOUIIIIISSSSSS, HEEEELLLLPPPP MEEEEEE!’ I scream into the house. Harry starts to jog to the gate. I catch a glimpse of Louis running outside until i was pulled out of the grounds. That’s when Harry really starts running.

‘Don’t bring me to the beach! NOOOO! I’M GOING TO GET SAND ALL OVER ME!’ i scream, my arms still flying everywhere. He gives me a throaty laugh.

‘It’s what you get for dropping me in the pool with my new Jack Wills top.’ His deep dulcet tone said menacingly. I’m gonna get sand all over me. 

‘I will cut your curls off in your sleep, then I will throw every single Jack Wills clothing you own out into the street.’ I threatened. 

‘I know you wouldn’t do that.’ a bit of doubt creeping into his tone.

‘You have no idea of what I’m capable of.’ I said as intimidatingly as I could. His footsteps come to an abrupt halt. I smile to myself, he fell for it. As if I’d cut his curls off. They’re better on him. His arms move to put me down. As soon as the contact of our skin was gone, I bolted towards the house.

‘In your face, sucker.’ I yell over my shoulder. But Harry was faster than I thought, he was hot on my heels. But i’ve been running for ages, i used to do athletics. I sprinted, bringing my speed up higher. I hear him gasp a little, he never knew i was this fast. I jump into the backyard and turned to grab the gate. I swung it forward and locked it, just as he came up. 

‘Aw, come on, love. Don’t be a spoil sport.’ He says in his hot british accent. I stuck my tongue out at him, smirked and walked away.

‘ALI! I SWEAR I WILL KILL YOU!’ He screams after me. I walked past Louis on my way into the house. He gives me a small smile and sits on the lounge. I felt smug. I left Harry outside and I was faster than him. I’m so proud of myself. 

‘BOOBEAR, I LOVE YOU!’ Harry’s voice reaches to me and I can hear the gate being opened.

‘NO!’ i scream and ran towards Louis, but I wasn’t fast enough. The leaping stones slowed me down. Louis turned around and I pushed him into the pool.

‘Ali!’ He screams as he resurfaces. ‘I thought we were friends’ He said in a fake hurt tone.

‘We were, until you opened the gate.’ 

‘All because of a gate, i’m such a terrible friend’ he scoffs. He ended up swimming along the pool. I watched him with a smile because he seems so relaxed.

‘Ali! He’s coming!’ Liam screams from his window. I turn around just in time to see Harry push me off the stone. I grab hold of him and we ended up falling in together. We both jumped up, laughing our heads off. I splashed water in his face and he did the same. The clothes ended up weighing me down, so i stripped into my bikini since I didn’t get changed earlier. I swam around the pool and I can feel Harry’s green eyes following me everywhere I go.

‘What?’ I finally say, standing up in the pool so only my upper body is showing.

‘N-nothing.’ he stutters. I stare at him a second longer but decided the better of it and kept swimming. He jumps out the pool and walks into the house dripping wet. And now, there’s one.

I saw a little blonde head walk past the door and I call out to him.

‘Niall! I need to talk to you!’ His silhouette walks towards me. He sat on the pool side and dipped his feet into the water. I swam next to him and crossed my arms on the pavement and stared up at him.

‘Who’s the new lady?’ I asked him, wiggling my eyebrows. He sighed and shook his head.

‘Niallerrrrr, tell me!’ I dropped my arms into the water, causing the water to splash everywhere.

‘Only if you believe that Hazzabear has a crush on you.’ Niall wiggled his eyebrows at me.

‘Don’t you dare turn this around. and crush? What are we in, primary school?’ i retorted. 

‘Yes, crush. He luuuuuurves you’ he battered his eyelashes and tried to turn even cuter than he already is.

‘Niall’ i whined. 

‘Don’t forget, Louis does too.’ I groaned. I hate being the centre of attention. It just reminds me there’s others out there that don’t have what I have.

‘Niall, stop. Tell me about this girl.’

‘Her name is Janelle. So far, that’s all i know. That and her number.’ Janelle? Ex-bestfriend Janelle? Can’t be. I start to panic. She’s been wanting revenge for so long. I never did anything to her, I swear. She just believes those stupid rumours. I never did a fucking thing.

‘Ali? Earth to Ali. Are you okay, love?’ he started clicking his fingers in my face.

‘Yeah, i’m fine.’ I brush off the doubt of his Janelle and my Janelle being the same person. It can’t be the same person, there could be a thousand Janelle’s in the Australia.

‘That’s weird. When I mentioned yours and Jenna’s name she got angry. And when I mention her you zoned out. What’s wrong? Do you guys know each other or something?’ He stared intently at me. 

My suspicions have been clarified. They’re the same person. Shit, i have a bad feeling. She’s going to do something, i can feel it. But should I tell Niall? He should get a heads-up. But i can tell he’s already falling for her and I can’t ruin that for him. In the 5 days I’ve known him, he’s never been so happy. I really don’t want to ruin this for him. Maybe I should wait until I actually meet her. She’s probably changed and forgotten about everything. Please, please, pleeeaaaase don’t let it be the same girl. But there’s a slim chance that that’s the case. I can only hope, right?

‘Erm, I can tell you another time.’ He eyes me wearily but I avoided eye-contact. 

I jump out of the pool and grabbed a towel that was sitting on the lounge. I wrapped it around my body and walked in the house. I need to tell Jenna. She needs to know. Janelle is going to do something bad, i have this walking-on-my-grave feeling. I really hope it’s nothing too life-threatening. I can’t deal with that now.
