7. When Trouble Strikes

Niall's POV: As I walked out the school doors, I scanned for Liam. He was my best friend, and the one I told everything to. I saw him fleetingly out of the corner of my eye but then he disappeared. I headed in that direction, determined to find him.
I heard the thump of his leather messenger bag against his thigh and I knew it was him. I jogged slightly to catch up.
"Hey," I said.
"Hey," he said.
We walked along next to each other in silence before I broke the news.
"I met a girl." I said, bursting with excitement.
"Really?" Liam asked, and I could tell he was happy for me. "What's she like?"
"She's quiet," I explained. "But she's a beautiful girl, and smart too. She doesn't seem fake but I think she's a tad bit shy."
Liam smiled. I knew he wanted to know more.
"She's got long, thick, loosely curly black hair, and blue eyes. Her lips are plump and pink like they're swollen and she has a cute nose..."
Liam stopped suddenly, and looked a little sick. I asked him if he was alright.
"I'm good, but I... I just remembered I forgot something in my car. I think I need to go back." and before I could say anything he had already turned around and hurried back to the school.
I thought his reaction was a little weird, but maybe he was just stunned at my description of Claire. I mean, anyone would be mesmerized by her beauty.
I trudged along, the dirt kicking up, and I studied the swirling patterns the dust made in the hot summer air. I felt a punch on my shoulder. Defensively I swiveled around, ready to punch back.
It was only Claire. She had a slightly indignant look in her eyes and it scared me a little. I put my fists down and returned to walking.
"Hey!" I heard her yell. "What were you doing staring at me today?"
I was shocked. I didn't think she was going to ask!
I stuttered a little bit. I didn't know what to say.

Claire's POV: I wasn't really mad at him. I mean I was at first, but then I saw the look in his eyes when I confronted him about staring at me and I just melted a little bit inside. He looked so lost and confused. I wanted to give him a hug, so I did. I just reached out and gave him a hug. He was warm and had strong shoulders like a guy should, and his muscles hugging me back felt so right. I didn't want to let go, but obviously it would be awkward if I didn't so... I didn't. Because he didn't. We stood there in a cloud of kicked up dirt, hugging. I never wanted to let go.

Niall's POV: I never wanted to let go. She fit right into my arms like a puzzle piece, and I knew this girl was mine.

Zayn's POV: I was hurrying out of school because I needed to get home and finish a huge history project by tomorrow. I almost ran straight by the dirt road that goes right along the school, but I turned my head just right and saw a blob. I stopped and then studied the figure. It actually seemed to be two people. Hugging. One was blonde and one had black hair, tied up in a bun. In the split second that I asked myself who they were, I knew right away. I knew it. I took one last fleeting glance and then silently hurried away. Tears were stinging my eyes and I wanted to kick myself for crying over a girl who I had only met today, a girl who would never love me anyway. I just wanted to get home.
