12. Shannon and Liam

SHANNON’S POV

                On Thursday, Rose kept complaining about being sick while we were at work. So, I took her straight home. I knew there was something else going on, but knowing Rose’s personality, it wasn’t the best idea to ask her what it was right now. Of course, after dropping her off I picked up Griffen and Ava so we could go to the boy’s flat. We were going to plan Rose’s surprise 17th birthday party, her birthday’s tomorrow.

                I wasn’t sure about me and Liam. We were spending a lot of time together but he never said anything about a relationship. He did tell me that he liked me, which counted for something. I think he was still cautious about picking up a girlfriend right after Danielle broke up with him, but if I told him about the incident at the café I think he would feel very differently. I just didn’t want to hurt his feelings.

                So, when we got to the flat and Liam asked me if we could talk privately, I was really surprised. The last time we had a private talk together was not very long ago, and that was when he told me he wasn’t ready for a relationship, so what would it be this time?

                He took me into his room and we sat down on his bed.

                “So, Shannon, I’ve been thinking a lot,” he started, looking nervously around the room. “I really like you and I think that this last week has been a lot of fun. I think I’m finally over Danielle and I’m ready to move on.” I could feel myself blushing as he said this, I expected what was coming next.

                “Like I said, I really like you and I want to spend more time with you…so…will you be my girlfriend?”  His huge eyes looked up and me warmly.

                “Of course, Liam!” I was really excited, I didn’t have to read mixed messages anymore. Liam liked me! We both stood up and he gave me a long hug. He smelled like the cologne he usually wore, it was my favorite smell ever. He lead me downstairs to where Ava, being the organized one, had her notebook and laptop out. Niall was sitting next to her, looking over her shoulder. Across the coffee table were Zayn and Griffen. Zayn’s arm was around Griffen’s waist. Me and Liam joined them, sitting on the couch next to Mia and Niall.

                “So, what did you guys get done?”

 

ROSE’S POV

                My quiet, relaxing day in my room was ruined when Cheryl burst through the door. I could tell she was coming from a mile away with the loads of hideous perfume she wore.

                “ROSE! I CAN NOT BELIEVE YOU PURPOSELY HURT YOURSELF. WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SO STUPID AND CLUMSY? LIFE WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER IF IT WAS JUST ME AND JULIA! YOU’RE ALWAYS MESSING UP AND NOW YOU CAN’T COMPLETE THE LIST OF CHORES I HAD PREPARED FOR YOU! I SURE AS HELL AM NOT DOING THEM MYSELF! I’m going to shop this one off, don’t leave this house! ” her voice shook the house.  

                “Wait, you wish it was just you and Julia? What about my dad?” I asked quietly. She didn’t answer, she just sneered at me and slammed the door shut. I hated her more than explainable. She definitely had something to do with the death of my mother, and I was right. She didn’t care about my dad, just his money.

                My phone buzzed next to me. It was a text from Harry.

                 how are you doing? are you feeling ok? Xx

               fine

               are you able to get out of the house?(:

                yeah, in like 20 min.

              ill be there! xx

                I honestly did not feel like dealing with Harry and his flirtatiousness right now, but I needed to get out of this house, away from any reminders of Cheryl or anything that had to do with her. If I ever saw my dad, I would tell him about my suspicions, but of course my dad was always busy. He was always so stressed out with work, it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to tell him about Cheryl anyway.

                I sighed as I got up and opened my closet. Feeling lazy, I put on white jean shorts and a black vneck. I could really only wear tshirts because they were the easiest thing to put my sling over. Getting dressed was the worst, since a whole half of my body hurt to move. I put pink converse on and ran outside when I heard the beep of Harry’s car.
