12. A Day With Louis (#TeamLouenna)

©Rileyes

I wake up to the annoying buzzing from Liam’s alarm clock. I don’t want to move because it is so warm and cozy. Liam removes his arm from around me to turn off the sound and I feel myself frown involuntarily. I lift my head off of his chest and sit up. How did my head end up like that? Didn’t we fall asleep with his head on my shoulder?

“So last night was fun,” Liam says smirking and kissing my cheek.

I feel paralyzed but I manage to ask, “The movie? Yeah it was really funny.”

“No, silly,” he says standing up. I realize he is just in his boxers. Wasn’t he wearing clothes last night? “What we did after the movie,” he winks. “I didn’t realize how flexible you were.”

Wait what the hell?

***

“Smile” by Uncle Kracker sounds in my eardrums and I jump up. I see Liam laying next to me, fully clothed, and he gets up and turns off his alarm.

 I was dreaming?

I feel a little bit relieved. I groan and fall back onto Liam’s pillow.

“I think we fell asleep in the middle of the movie,” Liam’s voice is groggy.

I nod. I wasn’t going to mention that I actually saw the whole movie and he was the one that fell asleep.

“Did I fall asleep on your shoulder?” he asks.

I was about to say no when I stopped myself. Why lie? “A little bit.”

He laughs, “Sorry about that.”

“No big deal,” I say.

It was a huge deal actually.

***

We get to school on time and I find Daisy at my locker.

“Hey, where is Jessi-”

“Probably with her boyfriend, right? I mean, that’s always who she is with nowadays,” Daisy says angrily.

I put my arm around her, “Well, don’t worry, you have me today. Where do you guys meet after school?”

“At Louis’ car, spot A1,” she says, still sounding glum.

***

I walk to the parking spot as the end-of-summer heat blazes down on me. The car in the first spot is small and white. I don’t know what kind of car it is, though. I am the first one there, as always. I wait a few minutes and finally Daisy appears, angry, like normal the past few days.

“I should have warned you not to get here too quickly. Mr. and Mrs. Tomlinson take their time getting to the car,” she complains.

“You are so overdramatic.”

“No, they are,” she says, pointing to the red-head and senior boy walking towards us, hand in hand. Louis Eskimo kisses Jessica and I hear Daisy gag.

“Yay, the whole gang is here!” Louis calls. Daisy gestures for him to unlock the car and so he does. She quickly opens the back seat door and gets in. This surprises me because I was expecting her to get shotgun. I see Jessica get in the passenger seat.

“Wow, Daisy’s been demoted from passenger seat to back seat? That’s rough.”

Louis and Jessica ignore my comment and Daisy mutters under her breath, “Tell me about it.”

We arrive at the house I have been to about a billion times before. It’s like my second home, since I come here when my parents are gone, which is all the time. As soon as I walk through the door, Daisy pulls me into her bedroom, “You are staying with me,” she slams her door.

There is a knock on the other side of the door and I hear Louis’ squeaky voice say, “Daisy, she came to hang out with all of us, you can’t hog her.”

“Uh, she is my best friend; I can hog her if I want to.”

There is a sigh and a pause. I think he has gone away until the door bursts open and Louis runs in. He comes over to me, lifts me up over his shoulder, and carries me out of the room, screaming like crazy the whole time. He drops me on his bed and slams the door to his room shut. His room is a white color and is much neater than Liam’s. There were a few jeans on the ground, but that was it.

“What was that for?” I ask half laughing.

Jessica looks at me from Louis’ desk chair, “You need to make Daisy forgive us already.”

“What do you think I have been doing?”

“Well, what exactly is it about us that makes her so mad?” Louis sits next to me.

“That you guys are always lovey-dovey around her. That is why she doesn’t like sitting at lunch with you guys and she has been eating in the library the past few days. And seriously, you make her sit in the back seat of the car and Jessica gets the front. What is up with that?” I want to try and help Daisy in any way I can.

“So what do I say to apologize?” Jessica stands up.

“I am not going to tell you. You should know what to say.”

She sighs and leaves the room. I am lying on my back on the bed so I push myself up a little with my forearms and raised myself a little bit off of the bed.

“It’s nice what you are doing for them; helping them makeup,” Louis says staring at me.

“Well they are my best friends; I have to do som-”

And that is when Louis leans forward and crashes his lips into mine. I am confused and I push him away as soon as I realize he is trying to put his tongue in my mouth. I jump off the bed. “What the hell was that?” I almost shout.

“Shh. Okay, I’m sorry. Please don’t tell Jessica or Daisy,” his voice is quiet.

“Are you kidding me? Why did you just do that? I’ve known you forever! You’re dating my best friend!”

“It was a dare,” he says, standing up. “Between me and Harry. Please don’t tell them. It was nothing.”

I take a step back, “You are crazy if you think I won’t tell them.”

“Come on, think of how happy Jessica is with me. You will just make her upset. Over something dumb. And what if she doesn’t believe you? Then she will get mad at you for making it up.”

“She would believe me,” I say grabbing the door.

“Would she?” he says. Would she? I don’t even know.

“What do you mean it was a bet between you and Harry?”

He looks up to the ceiling. “Okay, it wasn’t exactly a bet. More like trash-talk gone too far.”

“What does that mean?”

“Well, he was saying how he was going to get you at the auction and how hot you were and stuff and I said I could get to you first. And I could tell it really pissed him off. Imagine how mad he will be now.” He smirks.

“This is a pride thing?” He nods. “You disgust me.”

I leave the room and go to the bathroom. The tears start to fall out of my eyes. I call Liam on my cell. I don’t care if he is meeting his girlfriend somewhere; I can’t stay here.

“Hello?” he picks up sounding irritated.

“Liam, can you pick me up?” I say through my tears.

“What’s wrong?” he asks sounding more worried. He can probably hear me crying.

“Uh, nothing,” I reply. Well that wasn’t very convincing. “I just can’t stay here any longer.”

There is silence and then he says, “Okay, I will be there as soon as I can.”

I hang up quickly. I fix my makeup which was running a little bit and wipe my tears with my sleeve. When I am sure that there isn’t any possible trace of my tears, I walk into the hall. I run into Jessica who has her arm around Daisy. They are both smiling.

“Did you guys make up?” I ask putting on a smile.

“Yeah,” Daisy says.

“Best friends again!” Jessica says way too excitedly.

“Well, as much as I wish I could stay and be a part of this love fest, I have to leave,” I say.

“What? Why?” they ask at the same time and I laugh.

Louis steps out of his room, “Yeah, why?”

“No reason,” I lie. “Liam is just coming early.”

I say bye to them, pretending like Liam had already pulled up in front of the house. I leave through the front door and sit on the curb. I sit there for about ten minutes before Liam pulls up. I almost leap to the car and as soon as I shut the door behind me, I start to cry. I feel like such a baby, but I just couldn’t help it. My best friend’s brother/my other best friend’s boyfriend just stuck his tongue down my throat.

I could see Liam looking concerned, confused, and uncomfortable at the same time; if that’s possible.

He starts to drive and asks, “Are you okay.”

“Yeah,” I say wiping my tears away again. “I just got something in my eye.”

It is quiet the whole way to his house. He parks in his driveway and turns off the engine. He turns to me, “Are you going to tell me what happened now?”

“Nothing happened,” I avoid eye contact.

“Jenna, I consider us to be friends, right? You can tell me anything,” he gives me a little smile.

And because I have no one else to talk to, I tell him, “Louis kissed me.”

Liam looks blank at first and then what I said must have sunk in because he becomes kind of irritated, “When?”

“Today,” I take a second to breathe. “While Daisy and Jessica were in the other room trying to make up. It happened so fast and I pushed him away.”

“Did he do anything else?” I shake my head. “Did you tell Jessica or Daisy?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“He said he just did it to make Harry mad. What’s the point of upsetting Jessica if and Daisy if it was just something stupid? ”

“You have to tell her Jenna!”

“What if she doesn’t believe me? And she gets mad at me because she thinks I’m lying and it ruins our friendship.”

“Jenna, that’s dumb. You’ve known her for years. That won’t happen. Be real here- you’re handling this wrong.”

“No Liam, listen. You can’t tell anyone. If it happens again then I will, but I don’t think it has come to that yet.”

“But it upset you so much-.”

“Liam, promise me you won’t tell anyone. You can’t even tell Louis you know. You can’t be mad at him or anything. You have to act normal.”

He looks at me for a long time angrily. But finally, his expression softens and he nods, “Okay. I promise.”

“Thank you.”

“Let’s watch a movie to cheer you up, though,” he says getting out of the car.

I do the same. We watch the movie “Bridesmaids” and he’s right, it cheers me up. Near the end of the movie, I was so tired that I couldn’t keep my head up, so I rest it on Liam’s shoulder. I don’t care if he thinks it is weird or doesn’t like it. I do it anyway and at least he doesn’t stop me.
