8. Football and Jealousy

Lin’s P.O.V

When we got back everybody wanted to play football. It was Me, Louis, Niall, and Bri against Lex, Zayn, Liam, and Harry. Erron refused to play so we made him keep track of score.

We were winning by 2 points. I was running and kicking the ball for the winning goal when Niall ran into me and just like that he was on top of me and I was under him. I giggled and he giggled throwing his head down so he was breathing oh my ear. “I really like you” I froze at those simple words. I faked a smile and kept laughing. The reason I didn’t say it back is because I’m too emotionally detached. I know I like him but when I like a person I like them in hopes that they won’t like me back. It’s like when I liked Cole I knew the day before he asked me out that he would. So I told Nay to ask him out because she really liked him. He of course said yes Nay was pretty. I just didn’t think it would hurt me as bad as it did. I never told Lex though no one knew but my brother. I was tore from my thoughts by someone waving their hand in my face. It was Louis and he looked pissed. Shit I didn’t realize how compromising that position looked.

“Linsey” He said “Sorry I was just uh…thinking” “Oh well you can get from under Niall now.” I didn’t realize he was still on top of me till then. “Oh right yea” Niall got up but looked disappointed probably because I didn’t say it back. But hey it’s not like we knew each other for longer than a couple of hours. Niall helped me up I smiled weakly at him. As if it was to be an apology. He just nodded. We continued the game.

“YES WE WONNNN” Bri was screaming in the other teams face. Everybody was chuckling not bothering to tell her that the game wasn’t over. See we took a break to get water but instead of saying we were getting water we told Bri we won because we knew how competitive she was. It was quite amusing. At one point there was really close breathing to my ear. I turned to see Louis. Why did both of these boys feel the need to whisper in MY ear today? “Can we talk later?” I simply nodded then skipped to Bri and said “You do know the game isn’t over” she looked disappointed then she understood and just said “Yea I was um…kidding yea kidding” We continued playing and in the end Bri wasn’t the only one screaming that we won in the other teams face but we all were.

As I was walking in the house Louis grabbed my arm to stop me. I turned around and waited till everyone was in the house then said “So what’s up?”

He took a deep breath “Niall really likes you but” he stopped I raised my eyebrows as if to say continue “I heard Niall tell you. You didn’t say anything why not?”

I didn’t think I should tell him yet. I’d known Lex for two years and never told her so I just don’t know. “I don’t know it was unexpected. I couldn’t respond like that in the heat of the moment.”

He looked at me as If he was looking for signs that I lied. I tried to hide them and could tell he saw. “Shit” I muttered. “You’re hiding something.” He placed his hand on my shoulder “You can tell me you know.”

I looked at him. Even when Lex had seen me lie to her she never pressed on. It kind of pissed me off. I barely knew him but he thought I could just go and tell him all about how emotionally detached I was and how I got that way. Well he was a hell of a lot wrong I’d be damned if I told him of all people. The boy I just met.

“Are you fucking serious?” I said then laughed sarcastically. “I haven’t even told Lex that much about my past but you think you can waltz in put your hand on my shoulder and have me pour out my heart. Well NO that’s not how I do things. I will never tell anyone! Not even Lex because you people are just like them you ask and ask just to walk away. So you can just go ask the fucking world what I’m hiding! Ok?” He looked hurt I shrugged his hand off and started running down the street. I knew exactly where to go. I just had to clear my head. I had to get away from the questions that anyone asked they just wanted to know what I was hiding. But why did they deserve the right to know. It was MY past not the worlds and that’s exactly how I wanted to keep it.

Louis P.O.V

*When Niall and Lins Fell*

We were winning when Niall ran towards Sese when she was about to score again. They fell on top of each other. I turned my head at first when they both started laughing. It made me laugh till I saw Niall get closer to her ear. I walked a little closer Niall was never a good whisperer he said “I really like you” Shit I mumbled. She just laid there then faked a smile I could tell because her real smile was beautiful this one was just not it. She laid there for about three minutes without saying anything but she seemed to be deep in thought. I walked over and waved my hand in front of her face. “Linsey” She looked at me and I realized I probably looked pissed. *Skip what she said and what Bri did* “Can we talk later” I whispered in her ear. She just nodded then we continued playing. I wanted to know if she liked Niall back but was just nervous to tell him.

As she was walking in I grabbed her arm to stop her. We waited for everybody to go in then she said “So what’s up?”

I took a deep breath “Niall really likes you but” I stopped she raised her eyebrows as if to say continue “I heard Niall tell you. You didn’t say anything why not?”

She thought for a moment I hoped she didn’t like him. “I don’t know it was unexpected. I couldn’t respond like that in the heat of the moment.”

I looked at her looking for signs that she was lying. She tried to hide them and could tell she noticed I saw. “Shit” she muttered. “You’re hiding something.” I placed my hand on her shoulder “You can tell me you know.”

I really hoped she knew she could trust me. She never came off as the type to hide secrets. But some people really like to keep their past secret. I just want to know her better.

 “Are you fucking serious?” she suddenly said then laughed sarcastically. “I haven’t even told Lex that much about my past but you think you can waltz in put your hand on my shoulder and have me pour out my heart. Well NO that’s not how I do things. I will never tell anyone! Not even Lex because you people are just like them you ask and ask just to walk away. So you can just go ask the fucking world what I’m hiding! Ok?” She screamed at me then shrugged my hand off her shoulder and took off running down the street. I didn’t chase after her it was like I was glued to this spot. I didn’t know what I did wrong. I walked in the house. Everyone looked at me. They must’ve heard her shouting Harry looked at me with sympathy he was the only one that knew. I shrugged then walked to Erron’s room. I knocked on the door. Erron opened the door and shook his head. “Come in” he said. I slowly walked in. “What did you ask her?” “I asked her why she didn’t tell Niall she liked him back, and then she gave me a B.S. answer. So I told her she was hiding something and that she could tell me. Then she you know snapped” He studied my face for a couple of seconds I got very uncomfortable under his stare so I started constantly turning my head. “She’s at the park she took you too earlier but by the pond. When you find her don’t ask any questions just be there. She’ll open up to you just give her time. She hasn’t told anyone and I only know because I was there for most of it. I have a feeling she’ll open up to you sooner than she does to others because you’re different.” “Thanks a lot man” I got up and walked out the house headed for the park.
