Too Close ~ (One Direction Not Famous)

Sophie and Niall have been best friends for years. But at the start of year 11, Sophie sees something different in him. Not only must Sophie cope with her own runaway feelings but she also has to try to keep up with the crazy lives of her other friends.

Will anything ever be simple?


3. Boys and Girls




Me and Anna walked into tutor, eager to find out what had Alice so excited. As soon as we walked through the door, it was pretty obvious. We stopped in our tracks as we witnessed  Alice, attached to the lips of one of the hottest guys in the school, Liam Payne. My jaw dropped.

                I glanced at Anna to see her mouth hanging open too. She looked at me and we both squealed before running at them and jumping on them, interrupting their little ‘moment’.

                You see, Liam and Alice had liked each other for AGES but refused to believe the other felt the same way. Therefore, neither of them had ever had the guts to ask the other out. We had all tried to get them together but failed on account of them being too stubborn.

“Spill!” demanded Anna.

“Well” said Alice, who was blushing like crazy. “Last week, I was in town with my mum and she went off to M&S so I ended up wondering round by myself when I bumped into Liam….”. She buried her head into Liam’s chest, blushing too violently to continue.

                Liam laughed, wrapping his arm around Alice. They were too cute! I found myself wishing I had someone like that. Someone who made me laugh, someone willing to put up with my faults, someone I would trust with my life… Someone like Niall. Ugh no! I needed to stop myself thinking like this!

                I was bought back to the present by Liam picking up where Alice left off. “Anyway me and Alice were chatting and ended up having coffee together and I was hit by a random surge of confidence and asked her over to my house for the afternoon”.

                Alice emerged from Liam’s chest and gazed up at him, grinning like a Cheshire cat. “So it texted my mum, asking if I could go over and the rest is history…”. She trailed off, not wanting to go into too much detail which was fine by me!

                “Aww I’m so happy for you guys!” I said, once again hugging them.

“Yeah about bloody time!” said Alice joining in the group hug sesh.

                Someone cleared heir throat loudly behind us, causing us all to whip round. I saw who it was… Oh great.

                “Excuse me but you are in my way” cam the unmistakeable bitchy tone of Hannah. My fists balled up in a natural reaction to the girl who stood before me. She was the sort of person that went out of her way to make everyone’s day miserable and everything, from her badly dyed hair to her almost non-existent skirt just annoyed me.

                A head appeared over her shoulder. “Yeah move!”, of course. Her loyal follower Katie was never too far behind Hannah, repeating everything she said in case we didn’t hear it the first time.

                “Well of course your majesty” Liam said sarcastically, bowing and waving them through. Alice giggled but quickly shut up when Hannah turned and glared at her. The phrase “if looks could kill” sprung to mind…

                With an exasperated sigh, Hannah pushed through us, tossing her hair in our faces. Katie followed behind, tutting dramatically. They really did take immaturity to a new level.

                At this point, our tutor Mr. Allen walked in, causing us all to scurry to our seats. Trust me; you do not want to get on the wrong side of Mr. Allen. As he was doing the register, my mind once again wandered back to Niall. I needed to make sense of what on earth was going on in my head this morning. Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried to deny it, I knew I had some sort of feelings for Niall. And I had the most awful feeling that this wasn’t just a passing crush.

                Secondly, I needed to figure out what to do about it. I could tell him but that would risk ruining our friendship and I needed Niall in my life, one way or another. But what if he felt the same? Unlikely. To him I was just his goofy best mate.

                I was abruptly brought out of my daydream by Anna’s pointy elbow digging in my side. “What?” I snapped. Anna looked slightly taken aback. “Sorry! I was just in a world of my own”.

                “S’okay”, she replied, waving it off. “Sophie did you hear what Mr. Allen just said? There’s a new boy on his way! I hope he is hot”.

                “Mmm…” I replied. I wasn’t really in the right frame of mind to listen to how Anna hoped the new boy was a mix between Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner. Usually I would love to join in but as it was only the first day back and already I had far too many problems, I was a little pre-occupied. I remembered Niall had wanted to talk to me and how distracted he had seemed. I decided to subtly mention it to Anna to see if she had noticed anything odd. “Urm Anna?” I started, eyes fixed on the ground in case I blushed and gave away my true intentions. However I received no reply which was surprising. Usually Anna jumped at the chance to talk! “Anna?” I tried again, glancing up this time.

                Anna was sat, jaw practically on the floor and eyes fixed on something across the room. And, for the first time today, she was completely speechless. Curious as to what to what could possibly provoke such a reaction. I looked towards the doorway to where her eyes were fixed. I can’t  say I blamed her.
