Claire POV

             “So, what exactly do you guys want to do?” Nikki asked as she was cleaning up the kitchen. “We could always play twister on the Xbox.” Sydney suggested as she brushed her hair out of her face. “What’s that?” Zayn asked, sitting at the table with everyone, as he played with his fork. The others gave a questioned look as well.

             “It’s a game that is supposed to come out in 2011, with the xbox kinect. But my dad works with xbox, so we have it before anyone else does.” Nikki replied as she leaned on Harry’s chair. “Sounds like fun. What do we have to do?” Niall asked. “Split into four teams!” Annabelle cried as she still had some crepe in her mouth.

            Nikki nodded to what Annabelle had said. “Claire and I, we must pair up.” Louis said as he grinned at me from across the table, sending pink throughout my cheeks. “Awww.” Harry whined from his seat. “Sydney?” Niall asked pointing a finger at her. She nodded as she stood up from her seat. “Nikki!” Harry smiled as he grabbed her from the chair, in an awkward hug. I saw Liam hunch his shoulders slightly, “Zayn!” He quickly said, recovering, as he and Zayn became partners. “Hey Annabelle. I’ll switch off with you so you can play.” Nikki said as Annabelle smiled widely.

             “Let’s a go!” I cheered as I led everyone to the playroom. The playroom was any person, young or old’s, paradise. Board games, video games, and a large couch and flat screen. Nikki and her family got most of these games because they were testing them out. She’s lucky her father works with xbox, and nintendo, and sometimes even hasbro. “Ready?” Nikki asked smirking as she quickly started up the game. We all nodded, this was going to be good.


             “Come on Liam!” Zayn said as they tried to fill in the shapes. A big ‘X’ flashed on the screen when they were unable to complete it. “We tried.” Liam sighed as he and Zayn sat back down. Nikki and Harry stood up, trying to fill in the shape on a banana. Harry was practically pressed up against Nikki as they created the shape. And if you know the shape of a banana; then you know that Nikki had to lean back into Harry. Their hips touching, although they were not really paying attention.  She laughed as they completed the shape, giving him a high five. She completely missed Liam looking rather angry. You could almost see the steam flying from his ears. Everyone, except for Nikki, could tell he had a bad case of jealousy. And he better fix that fast before someone got hurt. Because nobody hurts my best friend.

             “And the winner is...” Louis said mysteriously . But we all knew who had won. Zayn and Liam sighed, they were in last place, with Sydney and Niall only a bit in front of them. Lou and I placing in second, with Nikki, Harry, and Annabelle having gotten first place. “Good game.” Harry smiled as he went around with his hand extended to shake. “Oh hush.” Zayn sulked, obviously sad about losing.
