Jess’ P.O.V.

I am literally the worst human being alive. That’s all I could think as I stood there, crying, looking into Niall’s heartbroken eyes. Fact is I really like him, course I do. But more than a love for an idol from my favourite boy band…of course I had Jack, but it took me years to like him like I do now, I practically had to force it upon myself in all honesty. Yet it’s only taken me a matter of two days to potentially love this gorgeous blonde boy?

“Y…you have a boyfriend? But…what?” He stuttered out his words “I didn’t know, I..I’m so sorry Jess, it’s just I-”

“Niall please-”

“I’m so sorry, this is all my fault”

“Niall. Stop, please” I said, my finger resting on his lips to stop him from talking, my face having gone sticky with tears. I had to figure some things out and he was so not helping me think rational thoughts, when I heard his perfectly formed accent all I felt like doing was wrapping my whole body around him and kissing him through till the next century, but maybe that was an option I should consider... “Like you said it’s not your fault, you didn’t know. And I didn’t exactly stop you” I rather reluctantly removed myself from Niall’s tightened grip and flopped down on my back onto his bed. What the hell had I just done? I wasn’t a cheater, or a liar. I refused to be that sort of person.

He stood there for a few minutes just looking at me, like I had just ripped out his heart, stomped on it and shoved it back into his chest. The cheeky glint had completely vanished from his eyes as he eventually sat next to me, gently placing his hand on my knee as I sat up.

His cheeks flushed red before he spoke, looking a tad unsure as to whether he should say it or not “I really like you Jess” he almost whispered, couldn’t even keep eye contact with me at this point

“I like you too Niall” I choked out through the gathering tears in my eyes, the headache that was slowly disappearing over the day had now made a reappearance in the back of my head. Damn it “that’s my problem…”

A glimmer of hope now shone in his eye again. How could I refuse that gorgeous face?

“Then there’s no problem” he shrugged his shoulders as he held my hands, I gave him a look encouraging him to go on, in all fairness I was tired and had no idea what he was going on about anymore “we like each other, that’s gotta say something. If you like me then that must mean you’re having doubts about your boyfriend. If you loved him you wouldn’t be here with me now would you” the desperacy in his voice grew stronger and stronger as he said his little speech. I sat there, dumbstruck, staring at him. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and was completely overwhelmed by…well, everything I guess. Like honestly. Niall Horan, pop star, 1/5 of the biggest boy band ever and beautiful Irish leprechaun was begging me to give him a chance…jesus, you’d think it would be the other way around. This was just too much for my fragile little head to deal with at the moment – well okay I may have just lied, I have a big ass head, but that’s beside the point.

I let out a mournful sigh “c’mon smelly, let’s get some Chinese food.” I stood up, trying to drag him up off the bed but he refused

“Jess, you can’t just act like nothing happened and I wanna know where we stand-”

“Niall quit panicking, I have some thinking to do. Whatever I do end up deciding, I’m gonna have to tell Jack, so let’s get past that bundle of joy before anything else yeah?”

Niall’s P.O.V.

How could I even begin to argue with that face, she was stood there smiling at me as innocently as ever, hand holding onto mine trying to drag me to the kitchen. The kitchen of all places. That’s what I love about her, she had an appetite that came close to matching mine and she happily obliged to cook me food, and not just any food, Chinese food. A godsend? Yeah, pretty much.

“Hang on a second” I spat out through a mouthful of sweet and sour chicken “Did you say your boyfriend’s called Jack?” she nodded

“Yep, Jack Whitehall”

“Isn’t that…”

“Meg’s brother and famous comedian? Correct again genius” she smiled as she playfully tapped my nose with the end of her fork, god I loved it when she did that. She was sat cross legged on the chair opposite me shoving yet another forkful of chicken and rice into her mouth, it may sound creepy but I loved to just watch her, I just find her really fascinating. The way she is, I don’t really know how to explain it, but she’s just really…quirky. Yeah, let’s go with that. She had her long brown hair pulled back off of her face and the little make up she had on was subtle enough to show off her twinkling dark blue eyes that seemed to change shade to depict what mood she was in. Her teeth are white but not too white if you get me, the way her cheeks gathered and outlined her mouth when she smiled and don’t even get me started on her cute little button nose because we would be here for a while. She’s not the conventional pretty that you see models like in magazines, far from being a Barbie doll and fake. She’s naturally stunning and I could tell she wouldn’t believe me even if I told her, maybe that’s what added to her perfection. She was far from being full of herself.

“So where is he at the moment?” I asked, I don’t really know why but I guess I need to sum up my chances against him

“Manchester I think, he’s on tour” she sighed, “well you know what it’s like don’t you? Touring around the country a lot” I couldn’t help but nod

“But I wouldn’t miss my girlfriend’s 18th birthday for the world…” She glared at me.

Silence.

More glaring.

More silence.

“What are you trying to say? Actually, you know what? Never mind, it wasn’t his fault” her smile had vanished and she was looking down at the bracelet I’d got her for her birthday, twiddling with the charm that was hanging from it. Why did I always say the wrong things?

“Jess I’m sorry that was out of order” I said. Sighing I got up and walked over to her, stood behind her I linked my arms around her shoulders and embraced her in a hug and gave her a quick peck on the cheek – why the hell not, the damage had already been done.

“WE’RE BACK AND OHMYGOD YOU HAVE TO LISTEN” Alyssia yelled bounding through the door with multiple bags hooked on her arms followed closely by Meg and the boys “LOUNGE. NOW. SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP BITCHEZ” She pointed at the sofa as me and Jess appeared from the doorway of the kitchen.

“I’d sit down before she goes crazy at you” Liam laughed, following Liss like a little lost puppy…jeez I hadn’t seen him this wound up about a girl since the whole Danielle scenario…

I sat down on the sofa in front of her as she had told us too, moments later I was joined by Jess. She lightly rested her head on my shoulder as I pulled the blanket we were sharing not so long ago over us. I got a look from Louis and Zayn as if to ask what the hell was going on between the two of us, without needing to speak I glanced back insinuating I’d tell them later, they both nodded and sat down.

Jess’ P.O.V.

“So what did you want to share?” I finally spoke

“Jesus I thought you’d never ask” Liss breathed in a massive gulp of air “WE MET ALEX FRIGGIN’ PETTYFER AND CHRIS MOYLES AND OMG I GOT MY PICTURE WITH RUSSELL HOWARD”

“Are you fucking joking me?!” I screamed as I ran over to Liss’ out held phone, she wasn’t lying either, there was a picture of Liss and Meg with Russell Howard sandwiched in between. Well fuck you random pervert who stopped me from going out today.

Fuck.

You.

“I hate you. I hope you know that” I said, retreating back to my rightful place on the sofa “how come you guys always get to meet the famous people and I’m stuck here doing absolutely nothing all day” at this point all 5 boys started laughing. What the hell was so funny? I’m a hormonal teenager, I’m allowed to get irate over these things.

“What’s so funny?” Meg asked, looking as confused as I felt

“Well you were saying about how you’ve been stuck here all day with me whilst they got to meet famous people” Niall said, as if whatever it was that was so funny was blindingly obvious

“So?” I asked

“Did I ever mention that I’m from One Direction and in actual fact you spent your whole day with a famous person?”

Okay, One Direction 1 – 0 Jess.
