51. Friends and Family

It was 5:00 and my parents still weren't home so I decided to call my mom. 

"Mom? Where are you?" I asked when she picked up.

"In traffic. I'm sorry I didn't call you! Did you go to Rosedale and picked up the feed?" She asked.

"Yeah I did. 20 bags of senior feed and 30 bags of regular feed. It was almost $850!" I exclaimed.


"Do you know when you'll be home?" I asked.

"Probably in 2 hours. Mrs. Salerno called and said you can go there for dinner if you want. Harry, Liam, and Zayn are invited too," 

"Okay I'll just let everyone in and feed then turn them back out," 

"That's fine but can you leave them all in because I'm still nervous about the mountain lion and I don't want it sneaking up on the horses during the night," she said.

"Okay I actually didn't think about that. I gotta go mom just call me when you're almost home," I said. 

"Bye sweetheart I love you," she told me and I said good-bye. I hung up the phone and Mr. Salerno invited us over for dinner. I agreed and then went upstairs to get dressed. I knew they had a pool so I packed a bag for Louis, Harry, Liam, and Zayn while my sister packed a bag for her and our brother. 

"Boys! I need lounge clothes in case we hang out in front of the fire pit outside, bathing suit, and regular clothes!" I yelled throughout the house. I heard footsteps pounding towards my room. They barged in and gave me their clothes. I went to my dresser and got my camo bikini and then threw it in the duffel bag I was bringing.

When I was ready to go downstairs, Louis followed behind me and then we walked out into the barn dropping feed. After dropping feed, we filled water buckets and then went to catch all of the horses. They knew it was dinner time so they were all at the gate. Tundra, Lottie, Scout, Legend, Rudy, and Bongo all knew where their stalls were so they walked to the barn and then we locked the doors. It was the dinner for the horses without Chip. I walked by his empty stall and a single tear escaped without Louis seeing.

When all of the horses were locked away for the night, I loaded the car and then pulled out of the driveway. The boys were bickering in the back while I was driving and I was annoyed. 

"If you boys don't shut up I will pull this car over and beat the crap out of you three!" I yelled. Immediately, they boys shut their mouths. We pulled into the driveway of the Salerno's and Julia ran outside of the house to greet me.

"Alyssa! I heard you went shopping today!!" She exclaimed. 

"Yeah! I just had to get out of the house... you know.... I couldn't sit around and grieve about Chip," I told her. 

"Oh... well dinner is ready and then we can go swimming!" She said trying to cheer me up. 

"Sounds perfect to me!" I exclaimed. We ran to the house and into the kitchen to help her mom bring our dinner onto the deck. The fireflies were out and blinking in the sky, we were seated under the huge gazebo with the twinkly lights, and all of us fit around the table. 

"Thank you for having us for dinner tonight Mrs. Salerno," I said for the boys, Kylee, Greg, and I. 

"Oh no problem Alyssa! You are more than welcome here for dinner!" She smiled at me. 

For dinner we had pork chops, steak, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. It was delicious! We all talked while eating and then after dinner, Julia and I got up from the table to put our bathing suit on. I grabbed my suit from my duffel bag and ran up the stairs to put it on. 

We ran up the stairs and then into her room. I walked into the bathroom that was connected to Julia's room to get changed. When the bathing suit was on my body, I noticed how good it looked on me.  The camo made my already tan skin look tanner and my hazel eyes looked more green. My long dark hair stood out against my skin. I actually believed that I looked beautiful all of those times that Lou told me. 

I walked out of the bathroom and saw Julia laying on her bed scrolling through her phone. When she heard me walk out of the bathroom, she looked up and saw me. 

'Wow... Alyssa... you look really pretty," she said.

"I don't look bad right?"

"You look perfect," someone spoke from behind me. 

"Thanks Lou," I replied with a smile. He walked over to me and wrapped his arms around my waist with his chin resting on my shoulder.

"You're welcome now lets go swimming," he whispered into my ear. He slug me over his shoulder and then he ran us down the stairs, through the kitchen, over the grass, onto the concrete, and then jumped into the pool. The bubbles from the splash tickled at my skin and then I re-surfaced finding Lou smiling down at me. He was started to lean down to kiss me but when our lips were centimeters apart, I felt water splash all over me. I looked around and saw six boys re-surface. 

"BOYS!!" Lou exclaimed. They just started laughing and then I felt hands wrap around my ankles. I screamed and then noticed Zayn was missing. I looked at Lou and he nudged the arm and picked me up bridal style. 

"Really Zayn?!" He yelled. "Don't touch her! You could have gone after her but you didn't she's mine!" 

"Babe calm down please," I said whilst placing my hand on his cheek. He immediately calmed down but still cradled me in his arms. Zayn backed off and I gave him the death glare. He had to know that it would always be Louis! For crying out loud we are getting married! How can he still be getting in the way?! 

Julia jumped in and then Mike swam over to me and Lou. 

"So when's the big day?" He asked.

"We're not sure, definitely in a year or so," I said whilst smiling at Lou. "And Julia is the maid of honor and Danni, Liam's girlfriend, and Lou's sisters are my bridesmaids," I continued. 

'Who's your groomsmen?" Mike asked Lou.

"I didn't ask anyone yet," Lou replied. I rest my head on his shoulder and he kissed my head. 

"Do you have anyone in mind?" Mike asked.

"I want Harry as my best man and the rest of the boys as my groomsmen," he replied. 

"You should ask them now," I said.

"Boys! Come here! You too Greg" Lou exclaimed. They swam over and in the process, Harry looked like baby Tarzan. 

"What's up Lou?" Harry asked.

"So I've been thinking... I want you-Harry- to be my Best Man and you Liam, Zayn, Niall, and Greg- to be my goomsmen," he said. 

"I would love to be your Best Man Lou," Harry replied.

"And we would love to be your groomsmen," Liam spoke for the rest of the boys. 

"Why did you ask me? I barely know you. But I would love to be," Greg asked.

"Because Greg, you are the brother of my future wife and I want you to be in my wedding," he replied with a smile. 

"Thanks man," he smiled.

"No problem," Lou smiled back.

"And Liam, we have a surprise for you," I said. I looked at Louis and he smiled- encouraging me to continue. "We are flying Danni, the girls, and most of Lou's family down for the Engagement Party for tomorrow. We are picking them up at 7:30 tomorrow morning," 

"Really?! Thank you so much!" He exclaimed whilst swimming over to us to give us a hug. I was still in Lou's arms so it was an awkward hug but we managed.

"It wouldn't be right without all of my bridesmaids and his family there," I laughed. We were swimming for ever! We played Marco Polo, Categories, Sharks and Minos, and Dibble Dabble. The lights in the pool were on and they changed colors. Lou and I were in a corner in the pool with the water up to our necks, faces inches apart.

"I can't wait for tomorrow," he said.

"Neither can I. But Lou?"

"What's wrong babe?"

"Do you think we rushed it?" I asked.

"Not at all because I've never felt like this way before about a person. The first time I talked to you, I knew you were the one for me. When I saw you ride for the first time or went swimming with you in the creek. I knew you had to be mine. I don't think I've felt more myself with anyone else," he told me whilst looking into my eyes the whole entire time.

"I can't wait to be with you for the rest of forever," I whispered. He kissed me lightly on the lips and when I pulled away, I saw that no one was in the pool. I then saw the fire lit in the fire pit on the grass. I hopped out along with Lou and the grabbed our towels off of the chair. I wrapped myself up and then Lou hugged me, wrapping his towel around me. We walked over to the fire and sat down on the outdoor couch. He pulled me onto his lap and I snuggled into his chest.

Everyone was talking and laughing at something Harry said. I was just taking in the moment with my friends and boyfriend. I just couldn't believe that 4 short months ago I met One Direction, fell in love with Louis, and now we're getting married in a year or so. My dad was going to be there along with my friends, family, and horses. The day was going to be perfect. 

"I love you," Lou whispered into my ear. 

"I love you too babe," I whispered back with a smile on my face. I saw Zayn roll his eyes so I flipped him off. All of the boys saw it and looked at me.

"What was that for?" Liam asked.

"He rolled his eyes at me! Look Zayn, I know you still have feelings for me but I love Louis! When will that get through your hair and head?!" I yelled at Zayn. His eyes widened. "I know you like me Zayn so don't give me that look. When will you get that I have never been more happier with Lou? Doesn't my happiness count too?" I asked. He nodded. I snuggled back into Lou's chest and his arms wrapped around me. 

When I dried off, I got up from my spot, walked into the house, grabbed my stuff, and into Julia's room to put sweatpants on. When I was laying my stuff  out on the bed, I heard the door open and it wasn't who I was expecting. It was Zayn.

"Get away from me Zayn. If you get any closer I will beat the shit out of you," I told him. He paused at the door and I grabbed the towel and wrapped it around my body. 

"Alyssa... I just wanted to say that I love you. I want you to be mine instead of Louis'. When will you understand that I love you probably more than Louis?" He pleaded. 

"I DON'T LOVE YOU ZAYN! GET OUT OF THE ROOM NOW!" I exclaimed. While I was yelling at Zayn, I had heard a ton of footsteps running up the stairs. The door flew open and all I saw was the face of an angry Louis. I ran over to him and hid behind him. 

"Zayn! Just leave her alone! She loves me and why can't you see that we are happy together?!" He yelled. Zayn was silent and he looked at Louis.

"I'm sorry... It won't happen again," Zayn whispered. He walked through the crowd at the door and down the stairs. 

"Can you guys leave so I can get dressed?" I asked. They all left but Louis stayed in the room smiling at me. "What are you smiling at?" I asked him.

"You... you're so perfect," he replied. I smiled at him. 

"Can you go now? I have to change," I said with a smile. He nodded and left the room. I started undressing and then I put my black, baggy sweatpants on that said 'Barn Bum' in white letter then I put on my hoodie that was pink with a camo Under Armor logo. I put my hair up in a messy bun and walked out of the room to find Lou waiting for me in sweatpants and a hoodie with his glasses on. He looked so amazing at this moment. I walked up to him and wrapped my arms around him and rested my head on his chest. 

"You look good in your outfit babe," he whispered in my ear. He picked me up bridal style and walked us down the stairs. Mrs. Salerno was making some iced tea and saw us and smiled at us. We walked out on to the deck to the fire pit and everyone was looking at us except Zayn. Kylee and Greg were smiling at us. 

They knew I was never lucky with boys so when they found out I was with Louis, they knew we were going to be together forever. Louis brought us over to the outdoor couch that was long enough for us to lay on it so I was laying on top of Louis. The fire was really warm, the cicadas were making noises, the moon and stars were out, and everything was perfect. We talked about everything and Louis and I were holding hands. I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with Louis William Tomlinson.    



When I woke up the next day, it was 5:45 in the morning and Louis was waking me up with the 'Wake Up Song' along with the rest of the boys along with Niall. 

"Leave me alone!" I said whilst the boys were jumping on my bed. 

"IT'S TIME TO GET UP!" They exclaimed. 

"No," I said. 

"We have to pick up everyone at the airport," Louis whispered into my ear. 

"Okay fine, I'm up," I said whilst getting out of the bed. The boys walked out of the room and I jumped in the shower. I basically took a sower to wake up. When I got out of bed, I put the same outfit I had on that I wore around the fire. Still smelled like the fire so I smiled. 

"Are you really wearing that?" Louis asked with a smile.

"I don't want to get dressed up," I replied. He laughed and then carried me downstairs because I almost fell down from swaying back and forth. When we were downstairs, he carried me out to to the SUV that seated 7 passengers. 

"How many people are we getting?" I asked.

"We're picking up about 7 people so we have to take your VW Beetle and fit one of the girls in the back with Liam and Danni," he said. Lou's grandparents, sister, mum, and step-sisters were coming along with Danni. Lou was going to drive the SUV and Liam was going to drive my Beetle. 

"Okay lets go before I pass out again," I told him. He carried me out to the car and then placed me into the passenger seat. Liam was behind us in my car and then I fell asleep again. 

I woke up again and Louis helped me out of the car as we waited for the family to come. We had to fit 2 girls in my Beetle so it was probably going to be the twins in the back of the Beetle. We waited for about 20 minutes for them to get there and when Liam saw Danni, he ran towards her, picked her up, and spun her around. The girls ran towards Louis and I while his grandparents and parents walked towards us. 

"Alyssa! Louis!" The girls exclaimed. We hugged them and the adults reached us. 

"You must be Alyssa?" His grandfather asked me. 

"I am, you must be Louis' grandfather," I smiled at him. He smiled back and we started loading the car up. 

"Daisy and Phoebe, you'll have to fit in the back of the Beetle with Danni and Liam," Louis told them.

"What? We have to deal with the lovebirds?" They asked.

"Sorry girls but you are the only ones that can fit in the back," I told them. They frowned and crawled in the back and then we all loaded up and drove away from the airport. When we got home, it was 8:30 and I fed the horses and snuck Tundra out of his stall, slipped his halter on, and hooked two lead ropes to his halter. I led him to the outdoor and then I felt like someone was watching me. I looked at the gate and it was Lottie. I ran Tundra to the gait and then stopped him to talk to her.

"Can I join you?" She asked.

"Yeah! Let me think who you're going to ride," I replied. Scout and Lottie were to challenging for her, Legend was laid back but could be challenging. Then I thought of Chip! He was perfect he could keep up and was laid back but he was gone. I thought of Bongo who was almost like Chip but just younger. 

"I'll put you on Bongo," I said whilst slipping off of Tundra. I put Tundra in a stall and walked back to the house to talk to my mother. 

"Mom? Can Lottie ride Bongo? Also... can we go on the trails?" I asked. 

"Yes she can ride Bongo and yes you can go on the trails. It's all taken care of so have fun!" She replied. 

"Thanks Mom! Come on Lottie lets go!" I exclaimed. We walked to the tack room grabbing our tack. I grabbed Tundra's tack while Lottie carried Bongo's tack. After that,we placed it down on the saddle racks and then we grabbed our brushes. Then we grabbed the horses and pulled them out of their stalls out into the aisle. We brushed and then Lottie spoke up. 

"Do you really love my brother?" She asked. 

"I have never felt like this before about a guy Lottie," I told her. She smiled 

"Good because I don't want him to get hurt again," she replied. We continued brushing and then started tacking up. I grabbed a helmet for Lottie and then saddle Tundra up and put my helmet on to lead a good example for Lottie. We just walked and trotted on the trail and then Lottie asked if we could canter. She had the confidence to do it so I said we could. She asked correctly and Bongo was perfect for her and so was Tundra. When we got back to the barn, my mom was waiting for us.

"Hey Lottie! I'm Alyssa's mother. How was Bongo for you?" 

"He was awesome! We even cantered!" She exclaimed. My mom congratulated her and then we hopped off to un-tack them and sponge them down. After the hour long process of sponging and drying the horses. We talked and then we put the horses in their stalls because it was just so hot out. After that I went to shower and get ready for the party that began at 3:00.
