16. Just Dance

Claire’s POV


              Louis had just fallen asleep about 10 minutes ago, and he was resting his head on my shoulder.  It was about  4:30AM when my phone vibrated in my pocket.

Sydney: Just leaving, will meet you in a moment.
I looked down the hall to see Niall and Sydney walking towards us. They were whispering furiously as they approached us. When they noticed me staring they dropped the topic and put on a big smile. Although anyone would tell it was fake.

              “So...?” I asked from the chair, unwilling to wake Louis from his slumber. “We just have to come back on Monday.” Sydney said smiling as she rubbed Niall's shoulder gently when he had been jabbed. Niall just nodded in response. “Can we just go?” Sydney asked using her puppy dog look. I looked down at Louis who was peacefully resting on my shoulder. He was sleeping, and mind I say the word ‘was’. I shook him lightly, making his eyelashes flutter on my shirt. His eyelashes were thin, but multiple of them, I never thought I would find a man’s eyelashes to be a turn on; but I did. His light blue eyes looked up at me sadly, full of sleep dust.


              “Can you please drive us back to Nikki’s?” I asked as quietly as I could. I felt bad enough waking him up, but then asking him to drive us; was just even worse. He nodded sleepily as he lifted his head slowly off my shoulder. He started walking, almost falling at his first steps, but quickly recovered and was able to reach the car.

              He sat at the drivers seat with me in the passenger side, with Niall, who had finally stopped coughing and Sydney in the back. He looked over at the half empty water bottle, then back at the wheel, then again at the water bottle. Before anyone else in the car could react, Louis took the water and splashed it continuously in his face.” Where are the keys?” he mumbled.  I jingled them in his face.  “Ahh thanks,” he said starting the car.  

              I turned on the radio, and put it on pretty loud, I didn’t want Louis falling asleep while he was driving.  A Lady Gaga song came on, Louis and Niall started singing, and soon Sydney joined in.  “Come on, can’t you sing?” Louis said, nudging me slightly. “ She can sing,” Sydney added. “No I can’t,” I whined.  “Just stop talking and sing!” Louis said ”I’ve heard plenty of bad singing from my little sisters.” He said as he turned the music up, as it came to the chorus.  

              “JUST DANCE!” everyone in the car screamed, I giggled and couldn’t help but sing along.  The song ended, and there was a moment when the car was silent then Louis said, “You really can sing you know.”  I blushed as he turned the music down.  Breakeven by the script came on, “Turn it up, I love this song,” I demanded.  “I’m still alive but i’m barely breathing,” I sang.  

Soon everyone else in the car was singing, and before I knew we had arrived back at Nikki’s house.
