“I was wondering if you would like to do a small job for me, it will involve a lot of your time, but I am willing to pay you whatever it takes.” He says staring at me for a response.

“What kind of job?” I asked questioning him. Simon only looks around before lowering his voice and speaking to me.

“I have a client and he’s a little off the rails in the erm…woman department.” I interrupt him clearing something up for myself.

“A manwhore?” I said raising my eyebrows at him

Chapter 11

~Payton's POV~

*Not Edited* 

After ordering some more soda Liam decided he was gonna start by asking me questions. He said that if I got uncomfortable with any of them that I didn't have to answer them.

"Favorite color?" He asks while looking about the club making sure all the boys were okay. We had been sitting down at the table, but after seeing we have been here for about half an hour we decided to move towards the balcony to make sure they didn't do anything stupid. Since they all had enough time to get a good amount of alcohol in their system.

"Blue." I said still trying to find Harry and Louis in the sea of people, but so far I was having no success.

"What's it like 'dating' Harry." Liam asks and from the corner of my vision I can see him putting quotation marks around dating.

"It's not too bad, but actually knowing where he is would help a lot." I said giving the entire dance floor and giving it another sweep, but not seeing him anywhere. Liam comes up and stands next to me also giving the entire first floor of the club a sweep looking for Harry. After a few more minutes Liam nudges my shoulder with his while pointing over to where Harry was standing. He stood with a dark haired girl who was talking to him, but even from this far away I could clearly see the boredom in his features.

"Favorite Animal?" Liam asks while watching me stare at Harry who excused himself from the dark haired girl and walked over to someone else. I watched him walk around some people before reaching someone and who instantly pulled Harry into a hug.

"A unicorn." I said answering Liam's question as I heard him chuckle at my response. "What unicorns are amazing, don't hate on them." I said completely serious as Liam only laughs at me again.

"Okay how about where would you love to live?" He asks finally calming down from laughing.

"I am really liking it here in London honestly I wouldn't mind staying here." I said honestly. The last couple of weeks here has really given me a chance to see the entire city and it honestly is amazing.

"So I guess you'll be staying here for a while?" Liam asked me with his eyebrows quirks up at me. I laugh at his expression before nodding my head at him. "What about your dream job?" He asks while walking back down to the table and sitting down. I give one last quick glance at Harry who was actively talking to someone.

"Whose that guy with Harry?" I asked while going and sitting down across from Liam who only stood up a little before noticing who it was.

"Nick Grimshaw, he is a radio host for radio 1." He says before sitting back down in his seat. "Him and Harry are pretty good friends." Liam explains to me and I only nod my head at him. "Now what about dream job?"

"Oh right sorry. Huh, I always wanted to be an archeologist, the past civilizations always fascinated me." I said turning away from Harry and his friends.

"Really? I would have never thought you were interested with the past." Liam said a but stunned that I would have wanted to send my entire life discovering things that were around thousands of years ago. "What about favorite type of music?"

“I like all kinds of music, but there are some expects to my music taste." I relied to Liam looked at me curiously.

"What kind of expects?" Liam asked.

"Taylor Swift, I never liked her she just so ugh." I said with distaste clear in my voice. I never did like Taylor Swift and meeting her a few weeks ago did not help my dislike for her. That meeting had only made me dislike her more. I look over at Liam as see that he had been chuckling at my face as I talked about Taylor.

"You clearly really dislike her." Liam said chuckling a bit before finally calming down.

"She annoys me, like not get me wrong has some good songs, but they are all about love! Does this girl do anything else, but walk around throwing herself in relationships? People say she's a country singer? I don't understand how people can call her a country singer when it's all pop." I said frowning while Liam chuckles at my rant. "It's not funny." I said fighting back the smile that was threatening to show.

"It just adorable how much you clearly dislike her." He said laughing at me this time as I sit across from him glaring at him. After a few minutes his laughter finally calmed down as I sat only taking small sips of my soda. "Do you think you’re dark and mysterious or bright and cheerful?" Liam asks finally back on track with his question asking.

"I don't know, what do you think I am?" I said turning the question in Liam's direction.

"I think you're a good balance of both, which is good." He said with soft smile. "How would your friends describe you?" Liam asks as I sit and honestly think about it. Alyssa and Cara never really directly tell what they think of me. It was probably the over six years of friendship that kind of made no need to tell each other that.

“Cara says that I am bit loud and insane while Lyssa says that I am loud, annoying, and funny. They are so weird I swear, but one thing they can agree on is that I am loud apparently I don’t know how to whisper?” I said chuckling a bit of things that I have accidently blurted out so many times because of my inability to be quiet.

“I am guessing that Cara and Aly have seen the side effect of being loud?” Liam asks while chuckling a bit as only smile at him. “Is that a yes?”

“Cara and Lyssa have learned not to tell me big scandalizing secrets when we are out in public.” I said remember the time Cara told me she had told me that she was planning on ditching class to go hang out with her boyfriend. “Let’s just say there was a time back in 9th grade where Cara was going to sneak out of class and my loudness ruined her plan.” I said as he laughed at me as I let a soft smile form on my lips.

“If you had the chance to travel anywhere in the world, where would you travel and why?” Liam asked while folding his arms across the table. I stopped and really thought about it because in the world there are a million places I would love to visit but honestly only one place stood out.

“Just to let you know this one question counts as two questions.” I told Liam who only laughed at me before motioning with his hand for me to continue. “I would go to Egypt because I have always wanted go to see the mummies.”

“You know we’ve been all over the world but never to Egypt. We should go one day just grab a plane and jet off to Egypt and see the dead people from a billion years ago.” Liam over exaggerates causing me to laugh. “What?”

“The mummies from Egypt aren’t a billion years old you dummy, they aren’t even a million years old.” I said laughing causing Liam to laugh with me. It was strange to see myself opening up to Liam so much. Liam was close to a complete stranger someone I only week a few weeks ago and here I was telling him everything he wanted to know. There was just something about Liam that made the atmosphere so calm and relaxing which allowed me to open up to him. We just sat there for a few more minutes before a drunk Louis and Harry come up to us which amazed me seeing they had to climb stairs to get here.

“Liam, get away from my girlfriend.” Harry slurred a bit while clumsily walking his way over to where I sat. Louis followed him a little less drunk than Harry so he was able to support some his own weight along with some of Harry’s.

“Mate we are just having a chat nothing scandalous.” Liam joked with Harry who clearly wasn’t in the mood to joke around.

“No I saw you flirting with her get away Payne, she’s mine not yours.” Harry said raising his voice at Liam which surprised all of us. After the few weeks of being around the boys I’ve pretty much see them all angry and upset at one point, but right now angry seemed to tame for the way Harry looked.

“Harry calm down we were just talking, nothing more come on let’s get you home.” Liam said after he regained his composure. Liam stood up and took a few steps towards Harry hoping that he was still sober enough that he wouldn’t do anything stupid, but even I saw that Harry was past reason now.

“Why so you can put me to bed and just keep flirting with my girlfriend!” Harry said stepping towards Liam almost as if to challenge him. I saw the fear that passed through Liam’s face when he saw that Harry was challenging him.

“Harry, just calm down.” Liam said again hoping to reason with the curly haired boy, but Harry wasn’t having any of it. He so fast that I hadn’t even known what had happened because next thing I know Harry and Liam where on the floor. Liam was trapped underneath Harry as he pinned him down while yelling at him.

“Calm down! You really expect me to calm down after you send me off to get drunk while you sit here stealing my girlfriend.” Harry screamed as I stood frozen unable to really comprehend what was going on. Finally it hit me that Harry was fighting Liam out of pure jealously because he believed that Liam was flirting with me. It also hit me that he had been calling me his girlfriend throughout his entire rant, but I was pretty sure that was only the alcohol talking. It still struck a bit strange to hear the words so easily flow past Harry’s lips almost even in his drunk state. It seemed almost as if he had been calling me his girlfriend his entire life and now it was just a reflex, something his mind didn’t even need to think about.

“Harry.” I said walking over to the two boys who were only on the ground glaring at each other that this point. There were no more shouts or movements to hurt the other one just glares. “Come on let’s get you home.” I said latching my hand softly around his upper arm while tugging it for him to get off of Liam. I was hoping that maybe if I showed him that Liam wasn’t doing anything he calm down and just leave him alone.

“Home.” Harry whispered softly as I felt his muscles relax as he slowly let his grip go on Liam.

“Yeah, home come on.” I said encouraging him to fully let go of Liam which after a few seconds he finally did. I gently pull on Harry’s arm pulling him away from Liam so he would hopefully just forget that Liam was there and just follow me.

“Just you and me?” Harry said moving away from Liam and slowly walking with me as I lead him down the stairs. I feel his arms wrap around my waist slowly as he uses me almost as a crutch.

“If you want, birthday boy?” I said ruffling up Harry’s curls a bit as he placed his lips on my shoulder and softly gave it a kiss. “Come on casanova let’s get you home, before you make a bigger fool of yourself.” I laughed pulling Harry next to me instead of behind me. I didn’t trust him not to pull anymore of his little tricks. Honestly though I didn’t trust myself not to fall for his little tricks. Harry was bringing back those mushy feelings that I locked away and threw away the key for. It scared me to know that slowly this one boy was starting to mean so much to me.
