Dancin' Til We See The Sun

Mandie, a dancer from America, is just trying to find some work for her feet. But when she falls in love with a member of the band she's trying to work for, things could be really good, or really bad.

Mandie's P.O.V.

We finished on the lasagna quickly, everyone loved it. We were sitting in the living room, I was leaned back into Liam's chest, his head was on my shoulder. We were watching The Inbetweeners Movie, sort of, Louis was cracking jokes left and right, and I had two glasses of wine, so was pretty giggly.

"How about hoping in the pool for some fun," Harry said. We all agreed. Perrie, Eleanor and I went up into Zayn's room where Perrie had some swimsuits for occasions. We all chose one and put them on http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=63988308, went downstairs, and dealt with the eyes. I felt everyone staring at my tattoos. Liam, Niall and Harry saw the one on my shoulder, but no one had seen the one on my right ribs. I was self conscious. Really bad. The tattoo http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7f2ugh5Vx1qikq5ho1_500.jpg was one that I was afraid to explain. It was from the lowest point in my life. I had been in a bad relationship two years ago. The guy was abusive and treated me horribly. He cheated on me with so many girls, and when he finally broke up with me, told me that I was a waste of his time and was better off dead. I struggled with depression and the way I looked, because I wondered the entire time what I had done wrong. My tattoo was the quote that kept me from killing myself. I had become a new person and inked it into my skin, having that be a part of me rather than my horrible past.

I looked over to Liam who had a grin across his lips, and no shirt on. I could just drool. But his grin was confusing me. I thought he didn't like tattoos, but I guess I was wrong. He walked over and wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed my forehead. Then he picked me up and carried me over his shoulders to the pool.

"LIAM! Put me down!" I yelled.

"Not happening babe!" he said. Louis ran ahead, getting ready to open the door to the pool, with Eleanor trying to tackle him. But it didn't work. He got ready to throw me in the pool, but not before I could grab his hand and pull him in with me. He kissed me while we were underwater, and came up giggling. Niall leaped over our heads, and splashed next to us. Everyone hopped in, except for Zayn. He had a pool, and was afraid of water.

"Okay, time for chicken fights," Louis said, putting Eleanor on his shoulders. She looked scared. Perrie and I looked at each other with a grin. Then we saw Niall on Harry's shoulders and decided it couldn't be a totally bad idea. She climbed on Zayn's shoulders and I struggled to get on Liam's. Then Louis and Eleanor came after us. Liam used to be a boxer, and all my older cousins were boys, but this was harder than I thought. They weren't giving up easy. It took us five minutes to get them down. Niall and Harry and defeated Zayn and Perrie quickly. He wasn't a fighter and she was so skinny, she barely had any muscle, they were down quickly. So Liam and I turned to face them. Niall had an evil look on his face. And I wasn't even scared.

Liam's P.O.V.

Mandie was incredibly light on my shoulders, which didn't suprise me. Dealing with Harry wasn't hard, but I knew Niall was no slouch. I didn't know how Mandie was that good in chicken fights. Niall was down in the water quickly. She slipped off my shoulders and kissed me. She swam over to the edge of the pool, and pulled herself out. She sat on the edge and let her feet swish around in the water. Eleanor went over to sit next to her, and they started whispering. I got out of the pool to get a towel, and started drying off. The two started laughing, and Mandie came over to me. 

"Hey hun," she said, kissing me on the cheek.

"Hello beautiful," I said. She winced when I said this. I looked at her in awe, took her hand, and pulled her into the hallway. She looked confused when I shut the door.

"Liam? What's wrong?" Mandie said. I took both her hands in mine and looked down into her brown eyes.

"Why did you wince when I called you beautiful? Do you not believe it?" I asked her. She just blinked. "Mandie, do you think you're beautiful?" I asked again.

She shook her head, and a tear rolled down her cheek. I leaned my head down to kiss her softly, and felt her cry. I wrapped my arms around her waist and held her close to my chest. She sniffled and stopped shaking. I took her face in my hands and kissed away her tears.

"Why don't you? You are beautiful. And deserve to be told every second of every day," I said between kisses.

"I've just been given to many reasons to believe that I'm not," she said. "Can we go back in so they don't get worried?" I nodded and led her in. I dove right into the pool and swam over to Niall and Zayn. 

"Guys, I need your help with something."
