5. The Boys

Chapter 5: 

Harry’s P.O.V

I watched as she climbed off Liam’s lap flattening her dress and adjusting her top. Her eyes were like a doe’s, wide and full of innocence. I’ve been called a lot of things, but never stupid. Aspen knew exactly what she was doing, and the effect she had on the boys. I smirked more to myself than anyone in particular, I may not know her very well but I know Liam and Zayn. Liam could act like the was the big brother type but being siblings with someone who looked like Aspen was the last thing on his mind. As for Zayn, hell he knew how to play it out and I had to applaud him, being the best friend then slowly morphing to the boyfriend always worked nicely. I knew his play book like the back of my hand. As well I should, I’m the one who taught him

As we walked into the studio room I plopped back into a leather swivel chair. I propped my feet onto a nearby stool. I watched Aspen’s reaction as she entered the studio. Her hazel eyes were opened wide in amusement of the bright blinking buttons that flashed behind me. Taking a step back she almost bumped into Liam who just steadied her and offered her his seat. She gave him a small smile and I almost gritted my teeth in disgust.

Alright, I have to admit the girl is pretty hot but I think that as much as she tries to put it off-she knows she is. If she didn’t why would she showcase her body all the time by wearing all those black outfits and strapless dresses…no there is no doubt. I know she knows. Even now when she pulls the dress higher to cover her cleavage more I can tell she knows it all. I shifted uncomfortably in my seat pulling my chinos lower, my pants all of a sudden feeling a little restricting. Why else would she be playing it off like she was confused and innocent?

I saw her flash a look at me as she caught me staring obviously at her cleavage. But all I did was stare at her face unyielding to tear my gaze from her and instead winked at her. Aspen did her signature rolling of her eyes in retaliation. 

If this girl, who certainly would give me a run for my money, didn’t know she was hot I’d sure as hell make her see it – or better yet make her feel it.

Zayn’s P.O.V 

I saw Harry wink at Aspen then almost laughed out loud when all she did was roll her eyes at him. I watched how Harry continued gazing at her as the wheels in his mind turned already plotting something. I know Harry can’t stand not getting what he wants. And what he wanted was seated right across from me. 

Aspen was beautiful but I couldn’t determine if her obvious innocence was real or not. She certainly didn’t seem so perturbed by catching Harry naked in the shower but at the same time, I could tell she felt the need to conceal everything about her life. Perhaps it was just the fact that Harry seemed to irk her in every way possible that kept her so occluded from the rest of us. Still even now as I saw her talking animatedly to Niall, who looked as if he completely adored her, she did seem pretty genuine and real. I sighed internally, confused about what it was that I felt for this girl. I didn’t want to pull anything on her, despite my wide spread knowledge on how to do so, because this girl, seemed well…different. 

“Zayn? Did you say something?” Aspen turned to me cocking her head to the side a question mark etched on her face.

I shook my head, “ Er… no, I was just thinking.”

She smiled and shrugged her delicate shoulders, “Oh okay then,” 

Louis, who sat on my right inclined towards me, “So is it true what Harry told me?” he waggled his eyebrows at me.

“What?” I looked down at my hands.

“That Liam and you fancy the California girl?” he smiled wickedly looking back and forth at me and Aspen.

“What do you think?” 

Louis sighed blatantly and put his arms under his head, “I think yes, but seeing how Harry’s looking at her now, I’d say you and Liam better act now.”

I rolled my eyes in an Aspen like fashion, “Sure, thanks for the advice Lou.”

“I’m serious!” he leaned back towards me propping his elbows on his knees, “The girl is fit and if she’s living under the same roof of you and Harry, I’m guessing she won’t be able to resist either one of you, I mean hell look at Liam right now,” he darted his eyes on Liam who appeared to be putting his all in a conversation he was having with Aspen. “That boy even knows what he’s doing. You better start getting a move on Zayn…” 

Liam’s P.O.V

“…and like the sun is just so beautiful in California you guys really have to come and see it someday. When you’re at the beach and you watch the sunset, it’s one of the most pretty things you will ever see,” Aspen sighed contentedly resting her head on the back of the chair. I really had only heard that sentence of the entire conversation. I couldn’t stop looking at her in all fairness, she just distracted me with the way her eyes glimmered when she talked about her home and how she flipped her hair when she started a new sentence. At the same time I kind of had a feeling that it was all infatuation. I knew how Harry felt now when he saw an attractive girl and all he could think was that he wanted her. I mean that’s how I feel now right? 

Well it doesn’t really matter anyways. What with Zayn and Harry in the same roof as her I knew she’d be snagged by the end of the month. I’ll try of course I can’t just let this girl who seemed to outshine every girl in the book get away even if it meant going against Zayn and Harry. Sure they’re great at getting girls but three can play at that game.
