Chapter 2: More Than This.

Realisation hit his face as I said those words. He wrapped his muscular arms around my body as he bear hugged me. "Lou......Can't.........Breathe...." I managed to say.

"Oh okay, sorry.." he said as he let go. He took in a deep breath while looking at me up and down.

"Wow, you've changed," he breathed.

"I've changed? How bout you? When I left you, you were just a loser from Doncaster! And now youre a freaking superstar!" I exclaimed. He laughed and looked over his shoulder where now, 4 boys were standing. They looked slightly stunded at Louis' reaction. I smiled at them. Most of them smiled but the one on the end just stared. He had curly hair and chocolate brown eyes. I think Louis noticed the awkwardness and then turned back to me.

"Do you want to come in and we can catch up?" he smiled.

"Sure! But I don't want to impose," I said looking at the boys. Jay looked at me a dragged me into the apartment.

"Oh come on!" she laughed.

Once we had fully gone inside, I gasped at the size. It was huge. As Jay took me down to the lounge room I saw all the rooms and.....mess. Geez these boys were messy. She sat me down on the couch and walked off to the kitchen.
"Where are you going mum?" asked Louis.
"I'm just going to the kitchen to cook you boys some breakfast!" she answered happily,
"If I can find anything in this mess..." she said under her breath. I just smirked until I realized that the boys were sitting down across from me. Louis sat down next to me and hugged me again.

"I missed you so much Cesc..." he said into my shoulder.

"I missed you too Lou Lou." I said back.

"I don't need to be rude but, how do you guys know each other?" the blonde one asked. He had some sort of accent. I just couldn't put my finger on it. I looked at Louis and gave him a should-I-or-you look. He just gestured his hands towards me.

"Well, in 2006 I moved to Doncaster from Australia and went to Louis' school, Halls Cross High and thats where my older brother Alessio met Louis. They were like besties, like totes!" I said in a American accent. Louis just shook his head at me. "And then 2 years ago, 2009, my brother....passed away. In a car and Louis kind of became my second brother." I said smiling sadly. The boys looked at me with their faces filled with pity. "Anyways! I went on student exchange last year to Italy with some of my friends just before Louis went on XFactor, and when i come back, he's in One Direction! But! I'm being very rude! What are your names?" I said happily looking at the boys.

"I'm Zayn." the first sort of tanned boy said. He had big dreamy brown eyes and his brown hair quiff. He looked very mysterious. I looked at him with a I-want-more-information look. He just looked back at be confused. I laughed silently.

"What's your last name genius?" I said.

"Oh! Malik, Zayn Malik.." he said quietly. I turned to the next boy who's name I think was Harry.

"Harry Styles, ladies man." he said wiggling his eyebrows. I just rolled my eyes smiling. Oh god what a flirt. He had bright green eyes. I just want to touch them.....but that's I'm not. Aww he had dimples as well! I looked at the next boy. He had big blue eyes and crooked teeth. I think he had braces as well. He had a massive grin on his face. I like this guy.

"Niall Horan!" he said confidently.

"Are you Irish?" I asked

"Yeah, how could you tell?" he joked. I started laughing slightly. I turned to the last boy. He was the one that was staring like a retard. Could he be retarded? Nah, he's in a boy band.

"Uh, L-Liam Payne. Nice to meet you." he said shyly. I smiled.

"Nice to meet you too L-Liam Payne," I said jokingly. He turned as red as a tomato. The boys just smirked at him. This guy was gonna be fun. I turned back to all of them again and spoke.

"Age and birthday go! Shoot!" I pointed to Zayn first.

"Uh 18 and 12th Janurary!" he said as if he was trying to remember. Next Harry.

"17 and 1st of February." he sang. I looked at him there something wrong with these boys? Next N-Nigal? No. Niall! That's it!

"17, 13th of September!" he said in his cute little accent.

"So your turning 18 this year?" I asked. He nodded quickly. And finally L-Liam.
"17 and 29th of A-August..." he said shyly again. Does this boy have a stutter?

"Oh! Closest to mine!" I giggled childishly. This time they were looking at me as if I were crazy.

"Whens your birthday....Francesca? Is it?" Zayn asked.

"Yep, but you can call me Cesca or Cesc. Mines 18th of July. I'm 17 as well." I informed them. Harry looked at me shocked.

"What?" I said looking at him. Everyone else did too.

"I thought you were 16 or 15! That's why I asked if you were Charlotte's friend..." he said confused. Louis laughed at him.

"Francesca.....Charlotte's.......friend?" he said inbetween laughs. I smacked him on the arm.

"Don't laugh at him Lou!" I said. Giving Harry an apologetic look.

"But, Lotties a girl.." he said trying to reason with me. I raised my eyebrows at him.

"I'm a girl too Lou," I replied.

"Yeah but.....she's a girly girl.....and your......different..." he tried to explain. I shook my head at him.

"Are you calling me a guy?" I asked smiling.

"Nononononnonono! Your just like not as.....girly." he said. I looked at him amused.

"Well would you like to share to everyone how I am not as girly?" I asked. The boys were looking at Louis trying to hold in their laugh. Niall failed completely by bursting out with a loud laugh before nearly falling off the couch.

"Well......." Louis started, "You, you ride a skateboard! play drums and guitar......uh..yeah." He said desparetly.

"That doesn't make me much less of a girl Lou. But I'll give you sometime to think about that," I said while patting his shoulder.

"You play guitar?" Niall piped up. I looked over at him with a proud smile on my face.

"Yeah, guitar, drums and piano." I stated. The boys looked at me dumbfounded.

"She's a singer to you know." Louis pointed out. "Oh yeah! How's song writing going for ya?" Louis teased. I gave him the evil eye.

"Just fine thank you very much! And I'll let you know, I have made a new song that is better." I said. Still with dumbfounded looks on their faces Liam decided to speak. Finally....

"You write songs?" he asked quietly. He was so cute. I looked at Louis who was trying to hold in his laughter. I rolled my eyes.

"Yes I have written a song but it wasn' good. And so I've tried again!" I said.

"Hopefully Mr Tomlinson will approve this time." I glared at Louis. He finally cracked and bursted out laughing. He was pretty much rolling on the floor. Laughing like a hyena. The boys looked at him with astonished looks on their faces. I guess Louis might be normal around them most of the time.

"Hey, at least I've actually made a song....just saying." I protested. Louis stopped and realized this. He slowly got up from the floor and sat back on the couch. He wiped at tear from his eye and giggled a bit more.

"It still sucked though," he said a matter-o-factly.

"Can we hear it?" Niall asked, "I've got a guitar," I looked around at their hopeful faces. Well, except for Louis. He still had a smirk plastered on his big head. I didn't really want anyone to hear it. I mean what if they think it was as bad as my first one? Today is to make a good impression to Louis' friends. Not to embarrass myself. If I do then I will probably lock myself in my apartment and never come out. I will watch 'Adventure Time' all day and live off tuna. My best friends will be my 2 hamsters, 29 cats and Pikachu the unicorn. At night I shall ride my magical caterpillar into the moon and that is where I shall stay for the remainder of my life.

That might be a bit of an over-reaction.

Just a bit.

"Uhhh not really sorry, it's just I don't think it's good enough..." I said shyly looking down at my shoes.

"Nonsense! Come on we won't judge you," Harry smiled. He looked like the Cheshire Cat.

"Yeah Francesca! Come on, show us!" Louis teased. I gave him my best death stare. His smile just grew wider. He leaned in a pinched my cheeks. I swatted his hands away and shook my head.
"Finneeee," I huffed. Louis is gonna pay big time for this. Niall passed me his guitar and waited patiently for me to start. I tuned it and looked up at them one more time.

"It has backing music to it as well so it might not- "

"Dai! Dai! Who cares?" Louis interrupted me putting on his best Italian accent. Which was a fail. I took in a deep breath. Here goes nothing.

(All songs not made by Francesca! Don't judge!)

I'm broken, do you hear me?
I'm blinded, cause you are everything I see.
I'm dancing, alone
I'm praying, that your heart will just turn around.

And as I walk up to your door, My head turns to face the floor,
Cause I can't look you in the eyes and say,

When she opens her arms and holds you close tonight,
It just don't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this,
When she lays you down I might just die inside,
It just won't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this,
Love you more than, this.

If I'm louder, would you see me?
Would you lay down, in my arms and recuse me?
Cause we are, the same,
You save me, and when you leave it's gone again.

And then I see you on the street, in her arms I get weak
My body fails, I'm on my knees,

When she opens her arms and holds you close tonight,
It just don't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this,
When she lays you down I might just die inside,
It just won't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this,

I've never had the words to say, but now I'm asking you to stay,
For a little while inside my arms,
And as you close your eyes tonight, I pray that you will see the light,
That's shining from the stars above,
When I say,

When she opens her arms and holds you close tonight, it just won't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this,
Cause i can love you more than this, yeah!
It just won't feel right,
Cause I can love you more than this, yeah,
When she opens her arms and holds you close tonight, it just won't feel right
Cause I can love you more than this,
Love you more than,
