5. So... what are we?

Ally let the hot water wash over her skin as she ran her fingers through her hair.

 

"Am I asleep, am I awake, or somewhere in between? I can't believe that you are here and lying next to me. Or did I dream that we were perfectly intwined? Like branches on a tree or twigs caught on a vine." Ally sang in tune to the words she had scrawled in her song book on the plane.

 

"Like all those days and weeks and months I tried to steal a kiss. And all those sleepless nights and daydreams where I pictured this, I’m just the underdog who finally got the girl. And I am not ashamed to tell it to the world. Truly, madly, deeply, I am foolishly, completely fallen. And somehow, you kicked all my walls in. So baby, say you’ll always keep me truly, madly, crazy, deeply in love with you, in love with you." she sang, letting it all wash away.

 

She gave up trying to think of the second verse. Ally didn't know what true love felt like, she had spent hours trying to write those few lines. She ran shampoo through her hair. The sweet smell of apple pie filled her nose. Her mum owned an online hair and skin product site which sold the most intoxicatingly scented goods. Ally's personal favourite was the mocha sandalwood body scrub, but she tried to change scents every month because they all smelled amazing.

 

Finally, Ally rinsed off again and dried off, pulling her trackies on and tying her hair up in a top knot. She pulled on her brother's old Supras, which he gave to her just a month before he was killed in a car wreck. Ally wore them all of the time, but usually not out in public. She felt like it was her little secret, nobody needed to see or know why she wore these old beat up green shoes.

 

"You've got a brilliant voice." Said a high voice from the sinks. Ally looked around and recognized Cher from earlier. She was practically wiping the whole makeup counter off of her face. Ally held in a chuckle. Cher was actually very pretty without all of the concealer and eyeliner and lippy, but boy did she know the right way to apply makeup. It didn't look like she was wearing as much as she washed off.

 

"Thank you so much! Are you a singer too? Or do you do instrumental?" Ally asked. Cher pulled out a tooth brush and ran it under the tap.

 

"Sing. More of the pop style stuff, and I rap a little." Ally raised her eyebrows, impressed.

 

"Wow. I couldn't even dream of a rap, much less try to... rap it." She laughed. Cher laughed too and put some tooth paste on the brush.

 

"We'll work on that. I've been teaching Niall and Zayn and I must say they've gotten loads better. See you at Liam's!" She said. Ally waved and left, feeling like she'd already made two new friends before the night was out. She skipped down the hall trying to think up new verses to the song she was working on. Nothing fit right. Maybe she would have to talk to this famous Ed.

 

"Ready to head out?" Danielle asked when Ally popped back into the room. She glanced at the wall clock.

 

"How is it eight already!?" She gasped. Danielle laughed.

 

"Class gets out at five, dinner is straight after, and so nobody usually gets back until six or later... You'll lose track of time quickly, trust me. Good thing is there isn't any school work on first week." She said. Ally nodded and switched out her Supras for some other tennis flats, she didn't want Michael's shoes to get scuffed at Niall's.

 

"I like your shoes. Guessing they have sentimental value?" Danielle asked, pulling on her slippers and grabbing her iPod. Ally nodded and did the same.

 

"Maybe I'll tell you another time when it won't be awkward for me to cry. Don't know if we're at that stage in our relationship yet." Ally said. Danielle laughed but gave her an understanding smile.

 

"So they're in 209?" She asked, looking through her phone as they took the stairs down to the bottom floor. Ally searched for the recording of the song she was working on that she had made. She nodded absently at Danielle.

 

"So do you sing? I've run into the whole lunch table and they all sing." Ally laughed. Danielle giggled and shook her head.

 

"This is mostly a music school, but they have a whole set of classes for dancing, which is why I'm here. But I do take music theory, which works on interpreting songs, and that's pretty important for dancers too." Danielle explained.

 

"If you ever need help writing a song, I'm actually good at that." Ally said. Danielle nodded and passed over her phone.

 

"Trade, roomie?" She laughed, and Ally handed her phone over. They entered each other's numbers. "I can send you a few of the groups numbers if you don't get them all tonight." Dani promised.

 

"Thanks. Here we are!" Ally said, opening door 209.

 

"Don't you knock!" Niall shouted, ducking back behind the door. There was a wet towel in a heap on the floor and Liam was shaking with laughter from one of the beds. Danielle and Ally looked at eachother with wide eyes and burst out laughing. The door swung shut in their faces, and the girls doubled over laughing as they heard cursing and laughter through the door.

 

A moment later the door opened again and a blushing Niall stood there, wearing track pants and no shirt.

 

"Could have at least gotten fully dressed." Danielle teased, slapping Niall's stomach. He didn't really have abs, but it was because he was so slim. Ally blushed and realised he was staring. Abs or not, he still had a fit body.

 

"Ally doesn't mind." Liam laughed, wiggling his eyebrows at Ally. She blushed and laughed, turning towards the door so Niall wouldn't notice her red cheeks. Niall laughed and pulled a shirt from his bag, pulling it over his head.

 

"Knock knock!" Perrie said, and she, Jade, Jessie, and Leigh Anne appeared in the doorway.

 

"At least you knock." Niall chuckled, swatting Ally's hair. She hit his hands away and laughed.

 

"It was an accident! It's not like we saw anything." Ally said. Niall laughed and flopped down on his bed next to her.

 

"What happened?" Jade asked, perching on the end of Liam's bed.

 

"Long story." Danielle giggled.

 

"Actually it's not that long of a story. They walking in on Niall." Liam said, looking at Danielle. She bit her lip and looked away. Ally and Niall exchanged a look.

 

"Sooooo where are all the lads?" Ally asked, trying to detense the conversation. Liam rolled his eyes and moved over to that Perrie and Jessie could sit down, and Leigh Anne joined Dani on the floor at the foot of Niall's bed.

 

"Here!" Said a boy with flaming red hair. he was followed by Zayn, Louis, and Harry, who were all wearing trackies too. Suddenly, Eleanor hopped off of Louis' back and Cher appeared behind them all.

 

"The party has begun!" Cher called from the back of the pack. Niall and Ally laughed and everyone scooted over so there was more room for everyone to sit down. El sat in Louis' lap and messed with his hair, and they giggled and started messing about immediately.

 

"What'd we miss?" Asked Zayn.

 

"Only minor nudity." Danielle laughed. Perrie snuggled up to Zayn as he sat down, too.

 

"What?! And I wasn't invited? You know I love gettin' naked." Harry complained. Niall laughed and raised his hands.

 

"It was Ally's fault!" He said, then blushed, realising what he said.

 

"And tell me again that you two aren't dating?" Louis said. Everyone laughed and raised their eyebrows at Niall and Ally.

 

"Annnnddd on that note, I think I'm going to get some water." Ally said through the silence. Everyone laughed again and she walked over countless heads to get to the door. "Niall, get your bleeding towel off the floor!" She said, lifting it with her foot and kicking it to Niall. He reached up and caught it, then followed Ally out the door.

 

"Hold up!" He called, joogging down the corridor after her.

 

Ally turned and waited for Niall to catch up. "Do you even know where you're going?" Niall asked. Ally looked around and then laughed.

 

"Not really." She admitted. Niall laughed and matched her pace. leading her to the loo.

 

Niall tossed his towel in the hamper and lead her around the corner to a water fountain in the corner.

 

"Don't tell, but this has the best water in the school." He whispered. Ally pretended to zipper her lips and then bent down to take a drink. She instantly spit the water out and started coughing.

 

"Niall! That tastes like rotten vegemite!" Ally gasped, wiping her mouth on the back of her sleeve.

 

"Whoops, wrong fountain." Niall laughed. Ally hit him in the stomach and Niall grabbed her hand, lacing her fingers with his. He leaned against the wall and smiled at her for a second.

 

"Niall, what are you looking at?" Ally asked, raising her eyebrows. Niall shrugged.

 

"One of the eight wonders of the world." He paused and then laughed. "God that was terrible. Remind me not to use that one again." Niall blushed and pushed a hair behind Ally's ear.

 

"Seriously, though. Why are you staring at me?" Ally asked nervously. He was so close and Niall just made her heart want to explode out of her rib cage, but she'd only known him for a day. So what if it had been an amazing day, it still wasn't a long time.

 

"Ally, what are we, exactly? I don't want to be one of those puzzling guys who's not up front about how he feels, I want to be clear when I say that I really do like you. You're a really cool girl." Niall admitted. Ally smiled and stepped a little closer to Niall.

 

"And I want to be up-front with my feelings when I say that I really like you too. You're really great to be around and probably the best friend I've had in a long time, which is saying something since I've known you for what, nine hours? The only thing is that it's been... nine hours. I don't want to rush into anything." Ally said hesitantly. Niall nodded, looking a little disappointed.

 

"I know what you mean. Let's hang out more, get to know each other, see what happens in a few weeks?" He asked. Ally nodded and smiled.

 

"I'd love that."

 

"If you love that then how would you feel about going out this weekend? There's a really cool italian place a few blocks away that I hope you'll love." Niall suggested, leaning a little closer to Ally.

 

"I'd love that even more." Ally said, smiling and biting her lip. She moved a little closer to Niall. "Now let me ask... How would you feel... if I... did this?" She breathed, taking a step closer so that she was centimeters away from Niall's lips and he was leaning against the wall.

 

Niall slipped his hands around Ally's waist and stood up a little straighter, removing a little more space between their lips. "I'd love that." He whispered, moving so that the tips of their noses touched and his breath was hot on Ally's face.

 

"And what about this?" Ally asked,wrapping her hands around Niall's neck and playing with the end of his hair. Goose pimples littered his skin. Ally gave a little half smile, moving her head to the right so that their upper lips were barely touching and then-

 

"Oh, found them!" Louis shouted, leaning against the far wall. He had a smirk playing at his lips and a knowing look on his face. Ally and Niall jumped apart, startled. Ally straightened her shirt and Niall ran a hand through his hair.

 

"Who are you calling to?" Niall asked, puzzled. Louis chuckled.

 

"Well, when you'd been gone for fifteen minutes for 'water' we decided to split into pairs and look for you two. But there was an odd number and El was going with Dani, so I went alone. And What were you two doing?" Louis said, even though he knew exactly what was going on.

 

"Just having a nice chat!" Ally said a little too brightly. Niall nodded furiously and Louis chuckled again. There were footsteps on the stairs and Ally took another step away from Niall. Eleanor and Danielle appeared on the steps, closely followed by Liam and Ed.

 

"What were they doing?" Liam asked suspiciously. Ed snorted and whispered something to Liam, who laughed.

 

"Just having a nice chat." Louis repeated. Liam and Ed looked surprised, but El gave Ally a look and then whispered something to Dani.

 

"Seriously?" Ed asked Niall. Niall nodded.

 

"Seriously. And there was no need to come searching. Let's all go back to the front room to chill. Our room was pretty packed." Niall said. He reached for Ally's hand but thought better of it and just turned it to a casual wave down the hall. Ally walked with Dani and Ed and Liam caught up to Niall, while El and Louis whispered behind them. Ally shot Louis a death stare and he nodded, knowing she meant that this stayed under lock and key.

 

"So you were just... chatting?" Danielle asked finally as they approached the group who was already at the front room. Ally looked at her and let out a breath.

 

"Want the honest answer? No. We'll talk when we get back to the dorm." Ally said, smiling at her before sitting down next to Ed to make friends.
