23. Tonight Tonight

Niall's POV 

Almost fifteen minutes after Stephanie's near molestation experience she said she was tired so she wanted to go. Louis and I got our jackets and she went to find Liam and Zayn. We went outside and found Harry. I noticed he was trying to keep from smiling. I was very suspicious  I think Liam noticed to and went to talk to him. I saw Stephanie come out with the purse she brought. She looked cold in the strapless dress so i put my jacket around her. "Thanks again Niall." She almost whispered. "You are so welcome princess." I whispered back. "Princess? I thought you we're still looking." She asked confused. "Well I'm not sure yet but I might have found her." I told her. "When we get back to the house I need to talk to you." she said looking a bit worried. "Okay." I replied with a wink. We all walked the two blocks to the subway. "Can I go get changed into some jeans?" she asked. We let her go get changed. She put on a blue one shoulder top and some jeans with the sneakers that had blue sparkles. We had to walk another five blocks to the train station. After two I looked at Stephanie. She looked very tired so I got in the position for her to get on my back. "What are you doing?"  she asked. "You look tired. I want to give you a piggy back ride." "Okaaayyy." she replied and hopped on. She was actually much lighter then she looked. I let her ride on my back for the three more blocks to the train station. I sat with Zayn again and Louis and Liam sat together and Harry and Steph sat in front of them.

"I know you like her." Zayn whispered. What! How did he know!

 "How do you know that?!" 

"You talk about your day in your sleep. You said you kissed her on Kingda Ka and that you like her."

"We did and I do, but just something tells me she likes Harry."

"What makes you think that?"

"I don't know it's just a feeling. I think he really really likes her too."

"If it helps I've been talking you up to her."

"Thanks, but this is between Harry and I."

"Well Liam is helping Harry. He said you are both great guys and that she has to think this through before making any big decisions."

"Well he's right. I think she's confused. We need to let her think things through."

"I'm still gonna be helping you." 

"Thanks." We sat there and fell asleep. I woke up to Stephanie. "Wake up sleeping beauties." she teased. I think she was referring more to Zayn who was just waking up too. We hopped off the train and found our limo waiting for us. "Liam called him and told him to pick us up." she explained seeing the confused look on my face. Liam always thinking ahead. I rubbed my sleepy eyes and hopped in sitting between Louis and Zayn. "You didn't talk in your sleep mate. I'm surprised " Louis whispered. I only talk in my sleep when I dream about my day. When I have a random dream I don't talk. "I didn't? Well I'm surprised too." I lied. It was my little secret. I was dreaming about our next tour and Stephanie was singing on stage with us. She did have an amazing voice. I remembered the dance she was talking about. Maybe we could preform there with her.  "So Steph, you have a dance coming up." I said smugly. "Uh, yeah, why?" she asked looking worried. "I was wondering if we could perform there." I suggest. Looking around at everyone a huge grin appeared on all of their faces. "On one condition." I smirked. "Sure what is it?" she asked with the smile still on her face. "You have to perform with us." I told her. The boy's smiles grew larger but her smile vanished. "What is it babe?" asked Louis. "I can't go up there and sing in front of all those people." she stared blankly at the ground. "Sam said everyone likes you." Zayn tried to cheer her up. "Samantha Ford? She is one of the most popular girls in school." she looked surprised  "Yeah Mariana said everyone knows who you are and that no one likes Crystal." Liam chipped in.  "Mariana Spencer said that?" she looked surprised again. "Yeah they want to talk to you and be friends with you, but Crystal knows how to manipulate people and ruin peoples reputation." Zayn answered. "Well then I'll do it, but if people to make fun of me I'm changing schools." she giggled. Soon after we arrived at the house I led Stephanie up to my room to give her something to wear to sleep in. I tossed her a pair of sweatpants that were too big on her and a large tee-shirt. "So you wanted to talk to me?" I reminded her. "Uh, yeah. Um I wanted to tell offered to go to the dance with me...and I uh said....yes." she confessed. I felt a mix of feeling inside me. I feel resentment, jealousy, anger, but mostly sadness. "Oh, so you don't like me like that." I said sadly turning around. I took off my shirt and tossed it on the ground like most guys do. "No ,it's not like that. I do like you! It's just..." she trailed off putting her hand on my bare shoulder. I took the new shirt off the ground and I turned around. "It's just you like Harry better." I finished her sentence for her. Harry always got the girl so this means war. "When we were at the club and you said we were friends I felt like that's all we are. I'm pretty sure what we felt on the roller coaster was just adrenaline. I don't think you like me for real." she explained. I thought about for a second and realized there was only one way to prove what she said. I dropped the shirt in my hand and walked over to her, wrapping her in a hug. "What's this for?" she asked confused. I leaned my head back and looked her in the eye pinning her arms to her sides through the hug. "So I could do this." I smirked. I lurched forward so our lips met each other. To my surprise she didn't struggle to get away. I felt the same rush wash over me as on the roller coaster. My little experiment proved her wrong. I did feel something. I jerked back quickly and looked her in the eye. She looked at me in shock and she stepped back. She grabbed the clothes from the floor and ran out, probably to the toilet. This just tells me she felt it too.
