15. An Interesting Morning

©Rileyes

I wake up lying in the exact same position I did yesterday. As soon as I open my eyes, the memory of Liam kissing the crown of my head flashes in my mind. He kissed my head while I was asleep. Just like how I kissed his cheek while he was sleeping two nights ago. Does this mean he feels the same way about me as I do about him? Or was it a friendly kiss? No, friends don't kiss each other.

And then, without reason, Harry’s smirking face blocks the memory of Liam. He was going to ask me out soon and I was thinking about another guy? I was in another guy’s bed! I slowly sit up, cringing at every creek the bed made when I moved. I nudge Liam’s arm out of the way and manage to stand up without waking him up. I creep out of the room and shut the door noiselessly.

I turn around and almost bump right into his mother.

Gasping, I say, “I am so sorry, Mrs. Payne. I didn’t see you.”

She laughs a little nervously, “It’s alright dear,” She glances at the door behind me, “Why are you coming out of Liam’s room so early?”

Uh-oh. This looks bad. “I accidentally fell asleep in his room last night while we were watching a movie and I didn’t want to wake him. Sorry.”

She looks me up and down. My makeup was probably all smudged and my hair was in a ponytail. She looks at my pajama pants with ducks on them and nods slowly, “Okay.”

I walk to my temporary room, holding my breath until I close the door firmly behind me. I let out a long breath and lean against the door.

Well, that was awkward.

I plop on my bed and fall back asleep. It was Sunday, I could if I wanted to.

***

I awake to the sound of my phone ringing. I check the time: 10:00.

“Hello?” my voice is groggy.

“Hey, Sassy-pants,” I can hear the grin in Harry’s voice.

“Hey, Sensitive-pants.”

He laughs mockingly, “That was the best you could come up with? Sensitive-pants?”

I smile, “It’s the best I can do after just waking up. Plus, it’s true.”

“Yeah, alright,” he pauses before continuing, “You wanna hang out today?”

I nearly jump from excitement but quickly come back down from my high, “I can’t.”

“Why?”

“I’m supposed to hang out with Liam today. I mean, he is the one who paid for me and I have barely spent any time with him,” I explain. “And besides, if you buy me Tuesday, then we can spend a whole week together,” I say, a little too flirtatiously.

There is a long pause.

“Harry? You still there?” I ask laughing.

He clears his throat, “Yeah, sorry. Well okay then, I’ll text you later.”

“Bye,” I say and hang up.

I get up and walk to Liam’s room. I am about to knock on the door when I hear him talk.

God, I eavesdrop way too much.

 But, I can’t help myself.

“Did you pay fifteen hundred dollars?” I hear him ask. He pauses as the person on the other line of the phone talks. “Come on, man. You probably will spend all week with her. I have only hung out with her like a day and only at night,” Another pause. “I told you why I let her hang out with you guys,” Pause. “No, we are friends,” Pause. “Whatever, I’ll talk to you later,” he hangs up.

Was he talking to Harry? I can’t believe Harry called him and asked if I could hang out with him instead of Liam. I am a little bit flattered and a little annoyed. Harry was a little pushy, wasn’t he? But in a cute way. Ugh, everything Harry Styles does is cute. I am pretty surprised Liam said no. Like he actually wanted to spend more time with me and he regretted making me stay with other people this week. I get more chills as I think about him kissing me on the head last night and what it could have meant.

I knock on the door, “Come in.”

“Hey,” I say opening the door.

He nods his head at me, “Good morning. Where were you earlier?”

“What do you mean?”

“Well,” he says smiling. “I fell asleep, you were there. I woke up you weren’t there.”

“Oh,” I laugh. “Sorry. I had to go to the bathroom and I didn’t want to wake you up so I just went back to my room,” I lie.

He smiles, flashing his perfectly white teeth at me, “It’s okay. It just freaked me out a little.”

“So what are we doing today?”

He smiles again, “I thought we could go play some Laser Tag.”

“Laser Tag?” I ask. “As in, running around in the dark shooting people with lasers?”

“Yeah,” his smile fades. “Do you not like Laser Tag?”

“Are you kidding?” I laugh. “I love it! I played a few times at birthday parties but haven’t gone in a while.”

The million dollar smile returns, “Great.”

“I feel bad for you, though,” I say as I head for the door.

“Why?” I can hear the confusion in his voice.

I turn to look at him, “Because I always win.”
