21. Dinner

Later that day

Claire's POV

           "Hey syd?" When do you have to go back to the hospital?" I asked "umm tomorrow at 9AM I think," she responded "ok, who's gonna drive you there?"  "Well um you see I was kinda hoping you could.." She said hopefully. "Syd you know I'm not driving yet," I said annoyed. "please, please, please" she said trying to persuade me.  

           "I'm not ready yet, I'll just see if Louis is free tomorrow." I replied.  "hey Louis?" "yeah?" He said turning around so his blue eyes met mine. " what are you up to tomorrow?" "nothing I know of, I think I'm just relaxing,why?"  "you think you could drive Sydney and Niall back to the hospital?" "they have to go back?" He asked "Oops sorry i forgot to mention that, Niall has to get some testing done because of his allergic reaction."  

           "oh, ok well I think I'm free tomorrow so I could drive them there, and maybe then we could go see a movie or go to breakfast or something." He said
"sure, sounds great" I said. “Ok so you Sydney and Niall can stay over at my house tonight, and we can leave in the morning, okay?” he said asking everyone. “Okay,” I said, “is anyone else hungry?” “I am!” Niall shouted.  “Surprise, suprise,” Nikki said. “anyone  want spaghetti?”I suggested.

           Everyone agreed, and I headed to the kitchen to start boiling the water.  A moment later Sydney and Nikki came in to help me.I started the salad, while Sydney got out the garlic bread from the freezer. Nikki just sat on the counter dangling her feet and watched us.  I didn't care though she had made breakfast and a delicious one at that.  I finished with the Caesar salad and Put it in the fridge. Sydney had put the garlic bread in the oven, and the pasta in the pot.

           "hey Nikki can you go tell the boys that food will be ready in 10 minutes?" I asked " sure" she said.  Annabelle was at soccer practice, and Nikki's parents were still at work.  I strained the spaghetti and syd pulled the bread out of the oven.  I went to the table to find it had already been set.

           It was around 4 pm too late for lunch, and too early for dinner, but everyone was starving.  I put the heaping bowl of pasta on the table and put out Alfredo sauce and tomato sauce and a bag of Parmesan cheese.  Everyone sat down and piled spaghetti on their plates.  For about 10 minutes the room was silent except for the sound of everyone chewing.  

           We all finished eating and cleaned up the table.  "my mom said she is going to be here to pick me up in about 15,"  zayn said, " anyone else need a ride?"
"I do," Harry and Liam replied in unison. Nikki looked disappointed that they were all leaving, but I guess she knew that it wouldn't be that last time she saw them.  "you guys wanna watch tv?" Nikki suggested.  "sure" Liam replied.  We all made out way into the living room, and sat down on the couch.  

           Nikki turned on say yes to the dress, and zayn and louis groaned.  
"do we really have to watch this?" louis asked, "I already have to watch it at home!"  
"i like it," Harry said, I think it's funny how its such a big deal, and they always start crying." "I already have my dress picked out," Sydney said.

            "woah, a little eager?" Zayn asked.  "hey I do too!" Nikki and I replied in defense. I was still pretty tired, saying I had only gotten a few hours of sleep, so I laid down on the couch, putting my legs over Sydney and Niall.  Niall ticked my sockless feet.  " hey" I said giggling, "don't do that."
"or what?," he tempted me.

             "you don't wanna know" Nikki said, "last time I woke Claire up before 10 she accidently hit me, leaving me with a bruise the size of a baseball on my arm." Niall stopped tickling me and I snuggled up using Louis's thigh for a pillow.


I woke up to yelling.  "But I'm hungry!! All I want is one stupid Oreo! "
" you can't have one!" A voice I vaguely recognized as Sydney said.  I moaned having been woken from my slumber.  " hey go back to sleep," someone said above me.  His voice was soothing, and I obeyed him and shut my eyes.
