You're Mine

*Not Famous*
Zoe and her cousin Niall have always been close, as close as they can be with Niall living all the way Ireland. When an unexpeected event brings Zoe to Ireland to stay with Niall, no one could have ever predicted what could've happened. Not only will Zoe fall for one of Niall's friends, she will be ripped away from everything she's ever known.


10. Strangers

"...and I really think you're going to be surprised to see how much Harry changed! He's not like, awkward anymore! The girls are all over him!"

Niall talks about the boys I'll soon meet, adding an occasional shout to snap me out of my thoughts. 

Girls? All over Harry? The same librarian looking kid I knew two years ago? No way. I'm not buying it for a second. Harry was the most awkward looking kid I had ever seen in my life. Tight, wild medium brown curls covering his head, nose resembling male genitalia, and he hadn't quite grown into his body. 

"Yeah, okay Nialler. I'll believe it when I see it, kay?"

He snorts and points in front of him, pointing to a group of guys. The one in the middle runs toward us and I can't believe my eyes. 


"Zoe! Oh my God, it's been forever! You look great!"

He releases me from the hug we ended up in, stepping back and looking me up and down. Not in a way that makes me uncomfortable though. More along the line of an old relative making sure I'm all in one piece. Harry, on the other hand, is definitely in one piece, one piece of eye candy.

He's grown into his tall, lean, toned body, biceps bulging out of his Jack Wills t-shirt. His green eyes seemed to have gotten at least two shades lighter, and even greener if that's possible, and the curls! Oh my God, his curls! They lay in a deep brown, floppy mess over his head, portraying sex hair. Something I wouldn't mind waking up to see, to be honest.

My face flushes at the thought and I turn to study the floor.

"I-uh..uhm.. y-you too" I finally manage to stutter out.

Niall breaks up our little reunion, by grabbing Harry and pulling him into a man-hug. He starts to talk about the plane ride and Mr. Muscles, but Harry's attention is else where as he steals glimpses of me, dimples protruding as he shoots me a million dollar smile. 

"Hey! Are you even listening to me? Keep your horn dog eyes off my cousin mate, she's off limits" Niall snaps, whacking Harry in the arm. 

He gingerly rubs it and glances at three boys standing off in the distance, shrugging his shoulders. A guy steps out of the small triangle and runs toward Niall. 

"The hell, Horan! Leave my little Hazza alone! Are you okay, sweet buns?"

The guy, who's wearing a blue and white stripped shirt, tan chinos, red toms and suspenders to match, pull's Harry down into an intimate hug. Uhm, what's going on? Niall didn't tell me Harry was gay.

My confusion must be all over my face because Stripes pulls away and stares at me. He puts his hands on his hips and gives me elevator eyes, leveling up his opponent. His light brown hair is done up in a messy, bedhead kind of style with pieces sticking out in every which way. He's got piercing blue eyes, almost like Niall's, but more hidden behind them. 

Stripe's must finally decide I'm not a threat, his face relaxes, hands fall to his sides. He takes a step toward me and gives me a warm smile.

"Hello, love. You must be Niall's cousin. I'm Louis."

"You're Louis?!" I blurt out before I can stop myself.

Shoot! Cover, Zoe! Hurry!

"I mean, uh.. I've just heard so much about you and have been really excited to meet you. Sorry for my social awkwardness. It runs through the family, ha-ha."

The weariness melts out his ice blue eyes as he cracks a smile at my bad joke, glancing at Niall who has his face buried in his phone. I silently let out a sigh of relief, glad for the moment to be gone, in the past to be forgotten. 

"Don't even worry about it, love. It's nice to meet you, too. Let me introduce to the other boys."

He goes to grab my hand and pull away, flinch involuntarily. His eyes flick to my purple cheek as his hand drops back to his side. 

"I, uh. I didn't mean to scare you or whatever. Sorry" he says tentatively. 

I blink back the tears, more from embarrassment than anything and give him a small smile, reassuring him I'm okay. He gives me a once over, along with Harry, and nods making his way to the other boys with out trying to help me again. 

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! How could I do that?! I know that Louis wasn't going to hit me! He just me, for goodness sake! He looked so weird-ed out by me and my freak out. Now he's never going to want to touch me, or try to touch me again. Way to make a good first impression, Zo.

Niall pulls me back as I start to head over the group. He looks me once over, eyes full of concern.

"Are you okay?"

"Yeah, I'm fine" I lie.

"I don't know what that was about. I know Louis wasn't going to hurt me. I guess I'm just still a little spooked. Do they know about what happened with Seth?"

Even the mention of his names tenses Niall up. 

"I told Harry. That's it."

I nod, and give him a genuine smile. I wonder what the other boys will be like. If they look anything like Harry and Louis.. Lord help me. 

We walk toward the boys and Louis greets us by wrapping his arms around our shoulders. I can tell already I'm going to like Louis.

"Now, you've met me and my lovely partner, Harry-"

"Partner? Are you to, like, together?"

Everyone cracks up like I've just told the funniest joke in the world. Well, I'll take the laughter as a no. 

"Nope, not at all, babe."

I turn toward the voice and am met with what may be the cutest human being I've ever seen in my life. He's got sandy brown hair cut down to nearly a boot cut, chocolate brown eyes, and one of the most amazing smiles I've ever seen. It might even be better than Harry's. He's got a plain white tee on with a pair of jeans and converse, and even over the clothes I can see he's in good shape, if you know what I mean. 

"Oh, ha-ha. Whoops."

He gives me smile and introduces him self. 

"I'm Liam. Nice to meet you, Zo."

I give him a shy smile back and shake his extended hand. I glance around at everybody talking to each other and my eyes land on the one boy who hasn't introduced him self. He catches me staring and gives me a confused smile, then starts walking toward me. 

My heart beat picks up with every step, sounding like a humming birds wings. I can't tear my eyes away from him. I'm mesmerized by every beautiful step he takes. By the time he reaches me, I've forgotten how to move, speak, breath. 

"Hey, my name's Zayn."

The sentence sends me reeling, mind foggy and insides full of butterflies. His perfect pink lips turn up into a smile, stubble around them turning up as well. His deep, brown eyes are surrounded by thick, black lashes that any girl would die to have. His caramel skin contrast against his jet black hair, a mix of bedhead and sex hair, and maybe the sexiest hair style I've ever seen. 

"Hey, Zo! Close your mouth and wipe the drool from your chin!" 

Louis's shout snaps me out of my trance as I snap my jaw shut, quickly running my hand over my mouth. A rushing sound fills my ears as I feel the heat creep into my face. Zayn stares at me, eye brow cocked and smirk plastered on his face, waiting for me to reply to his introduction.

"I, uh.. uhm.. I-I.. Hi."

He chuckles and I feel like I just might faint. His voice is smooth as butter and filled with teasing.

"Hey there. You still got a little, ehm.."

He trails off and gently grabs my chin in one hand. My skin tingles with his warm touch, sending shots of electricity through my body. His thumb runs across a spot just below my bottom lip and my breath gets caught in my throat. 

'There, got it."

He removes his hand all to soon and smiles at me, showing his perfect white teeth. His touch still lingers on my skin as I struggle to form a coherent sentence in my spinning head. 

"Uhm.. t-thanks."

He gives me a warm smile and cocks his head to the side. He opens his mouth as if to say something, but Liam's shout toward him leaves the words in his mouth. 

"Be right there!"

He turns toward me, and points turn Liam.

"I've got to go see what he wants, but I'll talk to you later, ok?"

I can't do anything but smile and nod as he walks away, hips swinging. My eyes trail toward his bum, watching the hypnotizing movement. 

"He's got a nice ass, don't he?"

I jump and advert my eyes from Zayn's path as Louis appears next to me. I turn a nice shade of pink, refusing to meet his gaze.

"I guess."

"Oh, don't even! I seen the way you were drooling over him!"

"Oh yeah! I noticed! Thanks for pointing it out to the whole world, Lou!"

He chuckles and wraps his arm around mine, pulling me toward the exit. I turn my head back around to get one more glimpse of Zayn and notice he's staring at me to. He gives a small wave and I raise my arm in response. I let my self lean into Louis and let out the breath I've been holding since I first seen Zayn.

"I think I'm in love" I joke.
