3. A Work Encounter

 

Skyler didn’t know where they were going and she was becoming uneasy. She looked around and realized they were in a part of the city she hardly ever went. Not because it was bad or anything, she just had no reason to go there.

“Louissss where the hell are we going?” Harry whined, but Louis shot him a cautionary glance that made him back down. It was an interesting relationship those two had, dating but not especially seeing they were 2 guys. It didn’t bother Skyler much though, she knew plenty of relationships like that, one being between her and her best guy friend, and knew it wasn’t more then two affectionate guys. She never did understand the Larry thing but with boys played along with it so she didn’t question it at the moment.

Liam had drifted to the back of the back making sure no one detected them. He knew it was a bad idea to go out without a guard, especially after what happened in New York. But like always he couldn’t say no to Niall’s cute puppy dog face and here he was. He had seen the street gig first and pushed the other boys to go watch, now he was trying to figure out what Louis’ new project entailed.

They finally stopped in some sort of back ally that still wasn’t a back alley, everyone gasped.

Louis stood in front of the glass display and smiled. “I used to come here as a kid,” explained Louis, “I always knew someone had made it when they were in this window.”

“This was my dream,” he paused looking back at the display, “my dream, my goal, my whole life was based on being in this little window in downtown London.” Louis paused for a moment taking everything, everyone in before continuing, “We always say that you never actually know when you’ve made it because when you have that feeling it’s time to do more. But, I’ve never believed that. I think you can make it and then be better. Because I look at this display and know…”

“We made it,” the rest whispered. It was a window full of one direction stuff; shirts, hats, and anything you could think of. It really was quite inspirational thought Skyler but again what does that have to do with me. Why did they stop me? She looked at these 5 boys that she had known for no more than 45 minutes and smiled, for some reason she felt safe right here. This thought surprised her and she started to cough awkwardly trying to throw her mind off this weird thought.

“I really don’t know why I felt the need to bring you here,” Louis said honestly looking at her with those sharp blue eyes, “I just saw you and knew it felt right.”

Skyler P.O.V

“I really don’t know why I felt the need to bring you here,” Louis said honestly looking at me with those sharp blue eyes, “I just saw you and knew it felt right.”

I was so shocked and touched; no one had ever said anything like that to me. I turned and gave him the biggest hug I could. He was so genuine and it made me so happy that someone in this world was still pure.  “Thank you.” He whispered in my ear.

I looked at my watch over my shoulder and gasped! I nearly missed my whole shift and had to walk pretty much across town to get there. I jumped out of Louis’ arms and looked around.

“You guys are amazing,” I said breathlessly, “ and this was an experience I will take with me for the rest of my life Louis, but I’m almost an hour late for my shift at the café and I have to run.” And with that I darted down the street without looking back.

Liam’s P.O.V

“You guys are amazing,” she said breathlessly, “ and this was an experience I will take with me for the rest of my life Louis, but I’m almost an hour late for my shift at the café and I have to run.” And with that she darted down the street without looking back.

“Well she was quite the bullet ‘eh mates?” said Niall looking down the street watching her scurry away.

“Ughhhh” everyone sighed as they looked at Niall before walking away.

“Hey what did I say???”

“She fancied you mate” Louis said with a wink. He was always trying to set me up and sometimes it was cute but with something like this it was just annoying.

“Oh shut it Louis, you have Eleanor and I’m glad you’re happy but I rather be single.” I mumbled, it actually wasn’t true but that usually gets him to back off.

“Alright boys well I think we should go get a cup of tea and head home before Paul sends out a nationwide alert we’re messing sound good?” Harry sung as he jumped between Louis and I, an obvious attempt to break the tension.

“That’s a great idea!” said Zayn, how had been silent since his warming way of calming…ohmigod.

I immediately stopped walking, shock all over my face. The guys finally realized something was wrong and gave me a worried look, “What’s wrong Liam?” Said Niall’s worried. I just looked at him astonished.

“Did anyone catch her name?”

Everyone just looked at each other than their shoes. “She said it during the show,” piped Niall, “but I don’t remember what it was.”

“God we’re terrible aren’t we?” said Harry.

I felt a hand on my back rubbing small circles, “It’s alright mate, maybe we’ll catch her again?” It was Louis. I shrugged him off shooting him a like-i-care-look.

The thing was I did care. I didn’t know why, but I did care. She was different, after her initial shock of not being kidnapped she acted normal around them. She didn’t care that they were the biggest boy band right now, she just saw the normal guys. Don’t get me wrong she was fit, but you didn’t notice that at first. Hell, I didn’t notice until Louis pointed out her outfit. The only thing I really noticed were her eyes. They were so large and wide like she could see straight through you. They were brown at first glance but when you looked at them you could see speckles of auburn and when she got excited or confused the hints of light brown swirled around. To him what was so striking was all the colors in her eyes also naturally highlighted her hair. She was really something.
Before Liam could think anymore he felt Harry's long skinny fingers wrap around his arms as they walked into the cafe.

Skyler's P.O.V
Lucky for me when I arrived at the cafe there was no one around so my boss merely let this incident go, although I was given a stern warning that if I was even a minute late ever ago I could kiss this job good-bye. I knew that would be a problem because, if I was being honest with myself, I really liked this job and was usually 5 minutes early just to people watch.
I was wiping down a table when the door opened, I carefully wiped my hands on my apron and turned with a big smile towards the new customers.
"Hello.." I barely got out before my mouth dropped from a smile to completely open.

"Well I reckon this girls got some luck. Hundred thousand girls dream of meeting one direction and she meets us twice in one day!" Niall giggles

"yah what are the odds," I hardly whisper quickly covering my surprise I finished my normal waiter speech, "um hello! Welcome to cafe de rue. Will your order be here or to go?" 

Louis eyes lit up as he nudge the rest of the group forward, "For here will be perfect, love."

For the duration of their stay I treated them like any customer because my manager was watching really closely. After they ordered a coffee and a treat she seemed pleased and walk to the backroom. That's when I took my chance. 
I slammed my hand down on the table making Harry jump a little.

"What are you guys doing here? Are you trying to get me in trouble?" I hissed.

Zayn went to go say something but I put my finger up warning him not to. I knew enough about him that if he began talking I’d be in a trance. 

"Did you follow me? Louis what you showed me was very sweet and personal but I still don't know what it had to do with me," I sighed, " all I know is if I lose this job I won't stay in London much longer and I can't have that."

After I said the last part everyone looked extremely guilty, as if it had just occurred to them what a problem they were causing. I sighed and and began to turn when I felt a rough hand wrap around my wrist. Shocks of electricity shot up my arm as I turned to look into Liam's deep brown eyes. He was really gorgeous. Big brown eyes, thin lips that you could tell were almost permanently pulled to a smile and hints of dimples even though he was frowning and the moment.
"I'm sorry," he said, "I never caught your name."
"Skyler" I replied a little more sternly then expected
Liam paused and I wondered what he was thinking about, normally I would've just walked away but his hand was still wrapped around my wrist, so tight it almost hurt. Niall coughed to avoid awkwardness which seemed to have brought Liam back to reality because he began talking again. “Skyler…Skyler, that’s a beautiful name,” he said smiling up at me… still holding my wrist, “I’m sorry that we put you at risk of being sent home, we didn’t mean to do that. We honestly had no idea that this is where you worked, actually we walked the opposite way then you did. I swear. If you prefer we can leave. I truly am sorry that we offended you, or hurt you in anyway.”

I could feel my jaw drop.

Liam’s P.O.V

I paused she truly had a beautiful name and her skin was so warm, I noticed her skin was a deep gold color, I wonder where she was from? Maybe south, wait no she said she came from the Midwest, that means it’s a genetic thing. The longer I held on to her, the more comfortable I felt, it was electricity but the good kind. The kind that makes your insides feel good. Niall coughed to avoid awkwardness which brought me back to reality and I stuttered trying to remember what I was about to say. “Skyler…Skyler, that’s a beautiful name,” I said, “I’m sorry that we put you at risk of being sent home, we didn’t mean to do that. We honestly had no idea that this is where you worked, actually we walked the opposite way then you did. I swear. If you prefer we can leave. I truly am sorry that we offended you, or hurt you in anyway.”

Immediately I could see her eyes soften. She bent down slowly putting her head on the desk breathing slowly. After a few moments she looked up at all 5 of us, “I’m so sorry for being so rude. All you’ve ever been is nice and this is how I treat you? I am so sorry.”
