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.


17. Chapter 17: back to normal


Chapter 17: back to normal


Louis’ POV


After Niall and Janelle left we just decided to keep the bonfire going. I hoped Janelle really is over it, she shouldn’t torture them over some petty little thing. It was like 2 years ago and honestly, how can she think Jenna and Ali are capable of doing that? They’re like the most selfless and caring and nice people I’ve ever met. 

I looked at Ali who was talking to Jenna so she could calm down. I couldn’t hear the words but the tone was so soothing. I’m really starting to fall for her. Her brown eyes glistened with tears and her hair fell down her back like a strawberry brown waterfall. I want her to be mine and only mine. 

I looked over to Harry who looked like he was crying. I stared at him and i saw the tear roll down his cheek. Oh no. He saw me kiss Ali. That was so unfair to him. I hate watching my best friend cry but this girl is everything. It’s hard to choose between your best friend and someone you could possibly be in love with. 

Ali walked over to me and wrapped her arms around my waist. I pulled her more into me.

‘What if she lied? What if she really does her revenge on us?’ She whispered into my chest. I felt the tears sink through my shirt and onto my skin. I grabbed her head and pulled her up so we were eye to eye.

‘Hey, i won’t let anything hurt you. Remember that night after we sent Blake to jail? I said I will always be here to protect you. And I will. Even when we have to get back on tour, I will protect you. I promise.’ I promised her, looking straight into her eyes. She mouthed a ‘thank you’ and she hugged me tightly.

‘Anything for you.’ I whispered in her ear and I kissed her hair.

‘Ali! I never told you. Guess who’s not single anymore?’ Jenna said, smiling very widely.

‘No way!’ Ali jumped up with a surprised face.

‘Yep!’ they both squealed and jumped up and down.

‘Who’s not single anymore?’ I asked, I was totally clueless.

‘Me, idiot!’ Jenna’s smile went even bigger and she sat on Jake’s lap and kissed him.

‘Congrats!’ I said but they never acknowledged me, they just continued kissing. I looked away so it looked like I wasn’t being all stalker-ish and I caught sight of Zayn crying. Zayn really did like Jenna. I saw the way they were on the boat and when we were watching Mean Girls 2 (the first one was waaaaaay better). 

‘Erm, guys? Stop sucking each others’ faces. We have a game to get back to. Hang on. Where’s Liam?’ I said, suddenly realising the absence of Liam. They all looked around as if he would just pop out of no where.

‘Call him?’ Zayn suggested. So i rang him and it rang for ages.

‘Hello?’ Liam finally picked up.

‘Where are you?’ I asked him.

‘Oh, I’m at the house. I, uh, forgot something.’ He sounded a bit off. 

‘Um, okay. Are you coming back?’ 

‘Yeah, I am. I’ll be there in ten.’ and he hung up.

‘Erm, he was at the house?’ I said and it came out more of a question.

‘Oh...’ everyone said awkwardly.

‘Okay, guys. The game.’ I said in a very serious note. ‘And Ali, you never answered Harry’s question.’

Alira blushed and didn’t look up.

‘Um, I honestly don’t know.’ she said quietly. I didn’t know if I should be happy or not. She would be great with Harry, I won’t kid myself. But I want her to be mine.

‘Okay, go Ali.’ I said, trying to sound normal.

‘Erm, Jake. Truth or dare?’ Ali had a little smirk on her face.

‘Dare.’ Jake said bravely.

‘Right. I dare you to put the sand down your pants and keep it there until we go back home.’ she smiled triumphantly.

His face was priceless. It was a mix of shock and horror. 

‘I’m not doing it.’ he said disobediently.

‘Yes, you are. You picked dare and that’s your dare.’ Ali crossed her arms and her voice had so much authority.

‘Jennaaaaaa, i don’t have to do it, right?’ Jake started to suck up to Jenna and he kissed her cheek.

‘I’m not taking your kisses. You’re going to do this dare.’ Jenna replied, pushing his face away. 

‘Unfair!’ he said but he got up anyway and put the sand down his pants. 

‘Ugh, this is so uncomfortable!’ he said, itching his crotch.

‘Eeeeew, don’t touch that!’ Jenna said and went to slap his hand away from that region. But Jake moved his hand last minute and her hand went straight in the balls. He held onto it and groaned. Everyone doubled over laughing. Harry was literally rolling, Ali had tears in  her eyes, Jenna was on all fours and Zayn, well, he’s laughing so much that there’s no air in his lungs (sarcasm, he never laughs. he just chuckled.).

‘Okay, why are you all laughing so much that people can hear you from China?’ Liam said, walking over to us and sat on the other side of the fire.

‘Jake... got.... hit.... in.... the.... balls.’ Harry said in between his laughs and we all cracked up again.

‘I don’t see how that’s funny. He could be hurt.’ Liam said sounding concerned which made us all laugh even more.

Five minutes later, the laughter died down and Jake was pouting and sulking next to Jenna.

‘Aw, babe. Don’t be like that.’ Jenna said, poking his cheek.

‘Yeah, babe. Don’t be like that.’ I mimicked her. She shot me a glare.

‘What?’ i said, putting my arms up in mock surrender.

‘Shut up, Louis.’ she said and she turned her attention back to Jake.

‘My balls hurt, Jenna. Kiss it better?’ Jake joked and Jenna playfully slapped his arm.

‘No more kisses for you!’ she said.

‘Fine. I guess we’re not going on our first date tomorrow night.’

‘First date? Tomorrow night? Really? Where are we going?’ 

‘Well, we’re obviously not going if you’re not going to kiss me anymore.’

‘I was kidding! I can give you lots and lots of kisses!’ 

‘That’s right. I get all the kisses!’ and they began making out. Everyone turned away and Zayn’s eyes read hurt all over. I felt so sorry for him. Maybe he can win her over but they were so cute together. 

Me and Harry made eye contact. And in his eyes, i read everything. I can see that he was hurt and that he was angry. But i can also see he hasn’t given up on her. We just looked at each other in the eye and we just literally read each other’s mind. I know he saw the kiss and I know every feeling he had. This is how close our relationship is, we can ready each other’s minds.

‘Okay. My turn. Um, Zayn. Truth or dare?’ Jake asked after their make out session. 

‘Truth.’ Zayn said through gritted teeth.

‘Best inspirational quote you’ve ever said?’ 

‘Just ride the rollercoaster that is life.’ I said in a dreamy voice. Jenna giggled and I know she knows what I meant. What a true directioner.

‘I don’t even say that anymore!’ Zayn whined. Everyone giggled.

Then, it started to sprinkle with rain. Everyone groaned and so we had to pack up and go back to the house. I shrugged out of my jacket and wrapped it around Ali’s shoulders. She looked up at me with a smile and she kissed my cheek. I tightened my hold and kissed her forehead. This moment feels so perfect and i don’t want to change a bit of it.






So, yes, this chapter is short and I’m sorry about that. And yes, it’s more about Jenna lately and I’m trying to fix that. There’s gonna be more Halira next chapter and a little less Louira. (yes, I made ship names, what of it?)
