Chapter 5: Fun House

Francesca POV

Once I got home I finished unpacking with Natasha and quickly cleaned the house all over. Why'd we get such a big house? By the time I got in my bed it was midnight. I texted Louis the address before I went to sleep. They were going to come at 1:00pm. Once I told Tash she was excited for a second but then remembered Louis was going to be there. He would always tease her for her little crush on a certain someone who is my brother. (Twin, not the dead one)

At 10 o'clock I got up and walked over to the bathroom. I quickly brushed my teeth and washed my face. As I looked up in the mirror I saw a pale face, dark bags under my eyes, brown frizzy hair everywhere and 1000 blackheads covering my nose. Oh God. They have come back to attack. My big brown eyes looked bigger than ever. I got out my foundation and cover up out and started the operation. I tried to make it as natural as possible. I mean, I didn't want to look like Barbie. Once I was done I put on some mascara and lip gloss.
I walked over to my new closet and picked out the most suitable clothes and laid them out on the bed. Black skinny jeans, grey top and black flats. Simple, but effective. I brushed my hair through and didn't bother doing anything special. It was wavy today. My hair natraully straight and thick. But every once in a while it becomes just that little bit wavy. Thats the way I liked it. I walked down stairs to the kitchen to find Tash eating breakfast.
"Sup love," I said cheerfully. She looked at me weirdly. "What?" I asked.

" just seem......happy.." she said surprised.

"I'm always happy...." I said confused.

"Yeah I know but, not this happy....." she said looking down at her empty plate. Tash was like that. She always picked out the little things that no one else would notice about you. She had brown-ish red, short hair and big brown eyes. She was smaller than me and a dancer as well. I first met her at dancing and we've been friends ever since. She has a cute little attitude and is normally quiet....except for when she's with her friends. She suits Leandro perfectly. Oh, did I mention her little crush actually turned into reality? Yep, she's dating my brother. No don't worry, it's not that awkward when she talks about how amazingly hot and sexy he is infront of me. I'm used to it.

I walked over to the cupboard and made myself some toast. By the time I was finished everything it was 12:00pm. I quickly checked everything again to see if it was clean again. Tash was just staring at me laughing.
"Oh God you're funny," she said giggling.

"I'm sorry I haven't seen him in a year and his friends are coming over as well." I said studying the room for the fifth time today.

"Hmmm, One Direction. They're pretty hot don't you think?" she said waiting for my reaction. I turned to look at her.

"My brother? The one that you have loved since I first showed you a picture? Remember him?" I reminded her.

"Yeah, yeah I know but come on! If I weren't with him then I would probably go for... the curly haired one....what's-his-face.." she said laughing.
"It's Harry, and I don't think they're interested in me....their more interested in Georgia and Julie.....people they haven't even met." I said thinking back to yesterday.

"Well we'll see today now won't we? And I need to make a phone call if you'll excuse me! I can't believe I moved that far away from my baby.....what am I thinking...." she started rambling quietly to herself. Those two were so loved up. I kinda got jelly. Not of Tash. That would just be disgusting.

God you have a sick mind.

Me? How bout you?

Oh just shut up you Nigglet.

What did you just call me?

That's right you heard me you crazy girl.

Me? Crazy? You're the one talking to yourself.


I have a third voice?

"Just shut up everyone! I'm trying to think!" I said out loud. Tash looked over at me weirdly. I just waved her off. I guess she was right about taking me to the hospital...

I walked back into my room and picked up my phone. 12:30.....damn. Just as I was about to put my phone away it beeped. God, it gave me a heart attack. With shaky hands I opened to see who it was.

'Hey Francesca it's your favourite person in the world. (Harry if you couldn't remember) save my number. ;)'

I rolled my eyes at his comment. Then my phone beeped again.

'Hi it's Niall. Louis gave me your number. Save meeeeee!'

And again.

'Hi Francesca it's Zayn from my number and so we can call each other?'

And one more time.

'Hello Francesca. It's Liam. Save my number to ur fone pleaseeee? Maybe we could chat?'

Just as I was about to, incoming call came in.

LOU LOU TOMMO is calling.

"Helloo?" I answered smiling.

"Francesca? It's Louis,"

"Yeah I know dumbass, I can read."

"Haha very funny, anyways, is it okay if we come early?" he laughed. I looked over at the time. 12:45.

"You're only gonna be 15 minutes early....can't you wait?"

"Yeah......they've been bugging me all morning so you know.....I don't really wanna see you but, what can you do?" he joked.

"Okay it's fine. Tash is just on the phone with Leandro so yeah..."

"Okay bye-" He started.

"Who's that?" someone whispered.

"Francesca...." Louis answered.

"OH MY GOD HI!" I think Harry squealed into the phone.

"Hello?" I said laughing.

"He's talking to Franny everybody. Calm down." Harry said. I clenched my fist. No one calls me Franny. I hate it.

"Don't call me that." I said harshly.

"What? Wait let me put you on loud speaker..." He said

"I said, dont call me that." I repeated. It was silent for a bit.

"Ohhhh Harry, your dead," Louis said laughing.

"What? What did I say?" Harry said sounding worried.

"You'll find out when you get here." I said trying to sound scary.

"I'm scared...." Harry whispered. Ha! It's working...

"Bye, bye.....Harry," I said in a creepy voice. I hung up before I could get an answer.


A couple minutes later the doorbell rang. I ran downstairs to find only 4 boys at the front door. They were all dressed sharply. Better than yesterday. Louis was wearing red skinny jeans and a striped t-shirt. That's new...Niall was wearing a blue polo shirt and cream jeans. Cute. Zayn, a varsity jacket and black skinnies with his hair pulled back into a quiff. Me-ow. And last but not least Liam who was wearing a normal blue and white baseball top and jeans.

"Where's Harry?" I asked

"He's too scared to come out of the car..." they all laughed. I sighed and walked over to the car. There he was. Wearing a low cut top and blazer. He had skinnies on as well. He had earphones in his ears and was playing Temple Run on his phone. I quietly knocked on his window. His head snapped towards me and his eyes shone with panic.

"Dont worry" I mouthed, "I won't hurt you," he just shook his head and locked the car door. I rolled my eyes and started punching the window. I was scaring him even more now. I took out my phone and texted him.

'Open the door or your precious, little Boobear gets it.'

I sent it and after a couple of seconds Harry's phone chimed. He opened it up and looked at it in horror. He looked up at me scared as shit. He went back to his phone and started typing. My phone received the message a moment later.

'You wouldn't dare.'
I smiled at the message. I looked over at him and winked. I quickly sent him another message.

'Would I Harry? Would I? Get outta the car and no one gets hurt...'

He looked down at the message and slowly unlocked the door, carefully watching my every move. I was just standing there smirking at him. We were just staring at each other in silence. Me looking at him in amusement and Harry looking at me petrified. After a couple of seconds I attacked him with a bear hug. He screamed and tried to run away. I was squishing him in my arms and after a couple of seconds he just gave up trying to pull me away and just stood there.....with a cray cray girl nearly half his height squashing him. I finally let go and looked up at him. I poked a finger at his chest and gave him the evil eye.

"Don't call me Franny never, ever again. Ever. Ever. Evereverever. Never. You get it?" I said deadpanned. He had his usual smug look on his face. He leaned down next to my face and looked me in the eyes.

"Whatever sweet-cheeks," he smirked. I poked him in the chest again before I started to walk away.

"Don't call me that either!" I shouted out.


Once we walked back inside the boys were already sitting on the couch looking around the room. Harry sat down next to Zayn and started a conversation. He looked around and then focused back on me.

"So Franny, wheres your friend?" he smirked.

"Oh I think she's still talking to Leandro..." I said while making killing movements behind Louis' head. All of them were looking at me weirdly except for Louis and Liam who of course, couldn't see me. Harry was now giving me the evil eye. I skipped out smiling going out to look for Tash.

I found her in her room lying on her bed with a big smile on her face. She was wearing a burgundy singlet top, striped, powerful leggings and blue vans. She was wearing the necklace Leandro gave her and her hair was down and wavy. I quietly knocked on the door and her head slowly turned to face me.

"Their here," I mouthed. She nodded her head.

"Okay babe I have to go," she said into the speaker. I think he responded cause her face softened.

"I know.....I love you too." she whispered smiling sadly. "Bye." she said hanging up. She took a deep breath and looked up at me.

"You'll get to see him in a couple of days don't worry." I reassured her. It was her 18th in a couple of days so we were having a big birthday bash for her. With all the little savings that I have left...

"I guess so...." She said. We slowly walked back downstairs. I could hear the boys quietly talking as we walked into the room. They all turned to look at us.

"Guys, this is Natasha Rando," I said introducing her. She smiled and waved.

"Tash." Louis said with a straight face.

"Louis." Tash said glaring.

"Really? Can't you guys just like each other for once?" I said fustrated.

"I don't think that's possible..." Tash mumbled. Harry slowly got up breaking the silence.

"Milady" Harry said with a posh accent holding out his hand.

"Milord," Tash said laughing while shaking his hand. Louis scoffed in the background. I glared at him and then moved on. The boys were now getting up and introducing themselves. Once we all sat down I cleared my throat.

"Okay so here's the deal, Tash is already in a relationship so no hitting on her." I said looking directly at Harry. He casually shrugged his shoulders.

"Why, whatever do you mean?" He asked. Tash lightly punched my shoulder.

"God you're acting like my mum," she said laughing.

"Well soooorryyy," I said rolling my eyes. I looked over at the boys and they were sitting there awkwardly. I stood up and said,

"Well I'm gonna get some drinks, what do you guys want?" Orders were yelled at me and I had to block my ears. I stared to run out of the room and shouted over my shoulder, "Apple Juice it is then!" Lots of groans were going round the room as I went around the corner. I heard them chatting again as I went towards the fridge. I pulled out the Apple Juice, (That's all we have to drink don't judge me) and got out 7 glasses. As I walked back into the room I heard lots of laughing and shouting. I looked over at Louis and he was on top of Harry squashing him. I sighed to myself.

"I knew a part of you was gonna be gay," I said to him. They all laughed except for Louis who was giving me the death stare and Harry who was to busy trying to push him off. I sat back down and started pouring the drinks.

"Wow, you actually weren't joking..." Zayn laughed. I looked at him with a straight face.
"I never joke." He smiled and winked. I could feel myself blushing- wait what? I was not blushing. I only just met him.....but I mean look at him. Like argh-mer-gerd. NO STAP IT! BAD FRAN FRAN!

I looked away shaking my head. I looked back at the others.

"So, how's life?" I smiled.




"A whole lot better..."


We all turned to look at Harry. He was grinning.

"What? You're the one that asked! Just stating the truth.." he said innocently. We all rolled our eyes at him.

"I'm hungry...." Niall complained, "When's lunch?" I looked at Tash.

"Well....we could order pizza or something...." She said. I nodded.

"I'll be black you stay white here," I shouted as I ran out of the room. (Not funny...) I quickly got my phone and walked back into the room. I was about to call the pizza place when my phone rang. Again. The boys snickered at my ringtone. It was all my friends screaming in my phone. Pretty embarrassing but what can you do? I picked up instantly. This is basically how it went.

Me: Hello?
Georgia: Hey it's Georgia.
Me: No shit, whatdoyawant?
Georgia: Jeesh....just calling to say I might be coming to stay earlier than Tash's party.
Me: Oh God why???
Georgia: They let me off early at the Ballet.....
Me: Okay cool, you could help me set up..
Georgia: On other thoughts, I could stay back...
Me: Wow what a friend.
Georgia: Haha okay, okay I'll help!
Me: Good. Now I need to go.
Georgia: Fineee. Byee love.
Me: Yeah, yeah see ya Hun.

I hung up and searched my phone for the number with looking up.

"Georgia?" Tash asked.

"Yep, she's coming earlier than expected..." I explained.

"Hmmmmm...should we see if Julie, Em and Chloe if they can come too?" She asked.

"Probably," I mumbled. I looked up at the boys.

"Which one?" Liam asked.

"Cheerleader slash ballerina" I said. A round of 'ohhhs' went around. I finally found the number and brought the phone to my ear.


We orders lots of pizza. And I mean lots. Niall ate most of it but you know, gotta watch your weight. We started talking afterwards.

"So you guys wanna watch a movie?" I asked.

"Yeah sure!" Louis answered.

"Any requests?" I asked walking over to the DVD draw.

"Scarface?" Zayn said.
"Love Actually?" Harry piped up.

"Grease?" Niall said cooly.

"Forrest Gump!" Louis fist pumped the air.

"TOY STORY!!" Liam yelled. Tash and I turned to look at him.

"Really?" Tash asked.

"Yeah nothing wrong with that...." Liam said shrugging it off.

"Grease it is!" I said happily.

"That's only cause you like musicals!" Louis and Tash said at the same time pointing at me. They looked at each other.

"Stop it!" They warned each other.

"I mean it you douche..." They said. The boys and I were pissing ourselves laughing. I had to lean on Zayn to stop myself from falling. I looked up at him and he was smiling back down at me. I stopped laughing to looking into his luscious brown eyes. I looked down at his lips then back up to his eyes. He was so close. He started to lean closer a bit and I started to freak out. A thud napped us out of the moment. We both turned our heads to see Niall and Harry on the floor clutching their stomachs. Tash and Louis had annoyed faces.

"It's not funny," they said in sync. They glared at each other and it made us laugh even more. I looked around the room and Liam wasn't there. I excused myself from the room and found Liam in the kitchen leaning on the bench with his eyes screwed shut.

"Hey, you okay?" I asked quietly. His eyes quickly snapped open. He seemed alarmed.

"Uh yeah..." He said nervously.

"What are you doing in here? One second you in there and the next no where to be seen." I said confused.

"Ummm I didn't think anyone was gonna notice, I mean Louis and Natasha were having a mini world war 3, Harry and Niall were laughing and you and Zayn should I put it?....having a moment...?" He said not meeting my gaze. Sugar pie hunny buns, he saw.

"It was just an awkward moment...." I said

"Don't worry about it..." He said looking out the window. I quickly changed the subject.

"That still doesn't explain why you left the room." I said raising my eyebrows smiling. He went into panic mode again.

"Uhhhhh I've got a headache..." He said obviously faking. I decided to play along.

"Aw really?" I said touching his arm, "Are you okay?"

He froze and turned to face me. "Uh yeah...thanks."

"I've got Panadol tablets....?" I offered smiling.

"No thanks..." He said waving me off as he walked out of the room. Strange, strange boy.

I walked back inside and saw that everyone had settled down. Louis and Harry were sitting next to each other, Tash and Niall and then there was an empty spot between Liam and Zayn. I walked up and put the DVD in then sat my fat ass in the middle of the boys. As the movie started I felt Zayn's arm slowly go around the top of the couch and around my shoulders. In and 'FRIENDLY' way okay! You sick people. As if he was going to pull a move on me this early. I mean, I just met him yesterday....and....he doesn't even like me.....right?


When the movie finished I got up and stretched. I walked over and switched off the DVD. I turned around and saw everyone stretching and yawning. Niall checked his phone and looked up.

"It's 3 o'clock lads, we have to leave sadly....." He said standing up.

"Arghhhhh...." The other boys groaned.

"B-b-but why?" I said with a pout.

"Because if we stay here too long it may get a little fishy to the press, they follow us you know..." Louis said standing up as well.

"Tough life, people praising you and following you. God, don't you get annoyed with all the screaming? And don't give me that bullshit about it not being a big deal..." I said pointing my finger.

"Well I guess it does get annoying when I can't even get into my own house, know..." Harry shrugged.

"Hmmmmm....well. I don't want people stalking me sooo....get out!" Tash joked.

"Okay, okay...." The boys chuckled getting up.

We walked over to the door.

"Well, this was fun," Louis said looking over at the boys. "You guys free tomorrow?" I looked over at Tash.

"I guess....we could go out or something we haven't really been out since we moved..." she suggested.

The boys looked at each other a bit....frightened? Worried?

"Well....uh...we're kinda tired..." Liam said rubbing the back of his neck.

" guys could come to ours? Maybe? It'll be easier." Niall said. I gave them a weird look. What was up?

" tomorrow..." I said slowly studying them. They all looked realived...hmmmm. They walked out the door and started walking back to their van.....thingy....

"See ya!" Tash and I called out.

"Bye!" They called out.

"Miss you!" I called out to Harry. He gave me his signature smile.

"You'll always be in my heart!" He said back winking. I started to feel weak in the knees. I saw the boys roll their eyes.

"Get in the car Harold and stop flirting with my mate!" Louis said beeping the horn.

"S'not my fault she's hot," Harry said getting in the car. These boys know how to make me blush.

"Bye ladies!" They called out driving away.
"Byeeee!" We said waving.

As we started to walk back into the house Tash hip-bumped me.

"What?" I questioned.

"Nothing....nothing it's just....those boys seem to like you," she said smiling. I looked over at her as if she had two heads.

"S'cuse me?"

"Oh come on! As if you didn't notice! You were blushing 24/7!" She exclaimed.

"Sure....whatever you say," I said walking to my room. "Call me when you've got some sense back in you," I said closing the door.

I think she's been away from Leandro for too long...
