22. Diplomas and Dipshits

 


POV Liz

"Cloë Vandermeer." Applause erupted on the field were we all sat on plastic chairs, as the girl walked on stage and recieved her diploma and a handshake from the principal. She walked away again, a wide smile plastered on her face. "Benjamin Meijer." I watched as my classmates went up and got their diplomas, one by one. Tears were already in my eyes, and it wasn't even my turn yet. "Camille van Beek." I cheered proudly when my best friend stood up too. At that moment, I couldn't hold it in anymore and started crying out of joy. When she walked back and sat in the seat next to me, I saw the same tears streaming down her face, so I squeezed her hand. I looked around me to see if I saw any paps here. Not that I expected them to be here, but you never know for sure. Luckily, all I saw were my fellow graduants on the other chairs and the people that came to see them on the sideline. My family was here too, every single one of them. Such a shame Niall wasn't here. I wouldn't see him for two days. Then I would fly to England and the tour would start. Well, not start, more like continue. The boys already did the European part of the tour, but I couldn't come with them, because of my exams. Ofcourse, I saw them when they came to Holland, but it's not the same, sitting in the audience or actually being there backstage. They had a break of two weeks, that ended in two days, and then it was of to America! Unfortunately, none of them had the time to fly out and see me graduate, because of all the preparations they had to make. "Eliza Janssen" I was pulled out of my thoughts when the principal announced my name. I quickly wiped away my tears and straightened my blue graduation gown, before walking up the stairs, and on stage. I heard the audience cheer loud for me. I looked over the crowd and spotted my family. My mom, my dad, my niece, my uncle, Niall.. Wait what? Before I could look properly, I was ushered off the stage. Was I halucinating? I must have been. I was just in time to hide the shock on my face, before pictures were taken. I couldn't wait for the ceremony to end, to see if it was really him. Luckily, after only five more minutes everyone had their diploma. After a boring speech from the principal it was time to get all cliché and throw our graduation hats in the air. It's not as romantic as in the movies, I can tell you that! Only a second later, I was pushing myself past the crowd to get to my family. As soon as I arrived, I was engulged in hugs. I looked around me, no sign of Niall. It was to good to be true anyways.. I did my best to look happy when pictures where taken and everyone congratulated me. Suddenly, someone tapped me on the shoulder. I was sure it was my nephew, Jonathan, who does this all the time, so I turned around to give him a lecture. "What is it now, Jona..Oh" In front of me stood a wide-smiling Niall. "Suprise!" His arms developed around me for a hug. Because I was so startled, I didn't move, and he noticed. "Aren't you happy to see me?" That brought me back to my senses. "Ofcourse I am! I just.. didn't expect it." He chuckled and brought his mouth closer to my ear. "That's why it's called a suprise, love." I wrapped my arms around him and held on tight, like I was afraid he would vanish if I didn't. "Thank you for coming, honey. I love you.." He smiled and kissed me softly. "I love you too. And how could I miss this? Then I would be a bad boyfriend, wouldn't I?" Because of the sudden flashes, I noticed that the paparazzi was indeed here. How's that even possible? They weren't 10 minutes ago! Niall noticed that I felt uncomfortable, so he took my hand and led me to his car. "Let's get you home. I have a suprise for you!" "Another? You know I don't like suprises!" He laughed as fake evil laugh as we buckled up and drove away. "You'll like this one, I'm sure!" 

 

"Niall, you don't have to cover my eyes with your hands. You're obviously taking me to my room, I'm not a complete retard!" "Oh yeah.. right." He removed his hands and I was right. We stood in front of my bedroom door. It wasn't that hard to guess after he led me up the stairs I already walked on a thousand times in my life. I looked at Niall and he looked at me with a mishievous smile. I started to like this suprise! He opened the door and led me inside. I immediatly pushed him on the bed and stradled him, thinking the suprise was to do some.. business. I leaned in to kiss him, but he stopped me. "Ehh, Liz? You don't want to do that right now." he pointed to the other side of the room. I turned my head and nearly had a heart attack. All the other boys and Dani stood there in the small space I call my room, eyes wide, looking like statues. The only one moving was Louis, who was almost pissing his pants laughing. I quickly got off Niall, my faces flushing red. "I..eh..sorry. What.. eh.. are you guys doing here?" Niall got up too and wrapped his arms around me. "This was the suprise! We are all here to see you graduate!" "Oh..how nice..Louis stop laughing!" Louis was lying on the floor by now, and didn't seem to control himself anymore. "Sorry! It's..just..so..fucking..funny!" Everyone chuckled, and suddenly the tension was gone. Niall spoke up: "What are you guys waiting for? Come give her a hug!" After everyone hugged me, I realised something. "But wait.. I didn't see you guys at the graduation!" "That's because we weren't there.." Liam said. "We watched it on Skype. We couldn't all be there, it would cause a huge commotion!" "Good luck at the hotel later on then!" They all giggled. "What? What did I say?" Harry was the first one to respond. "Well, that's the thing, we are not staying at a hotel. The fans can't know we are in Holland because these are our last two days of peace and quiet, well kind of, so.. we are having a sleepover here!" That's when I first noticed the mattresses on the floor. "Alright! That's going to be fun!" They explained that they had their suitcases for the tour already with them, so we would leave to America from here. Dani would go back to England, she wasn't coming with us, because she had her dancing. We spend the rest of the day in the living room, along with the rest of my family and friends. When it was well after midnight, everyone left, and we went upstairs, and changed into our pyjamas, taking turns in the bathroom. I was the first one to arrive in the room, along with Louis. "I don't want to ruin the party, Lou, but I only count 6 places to sleep, and we are with 7.." pointing at the double bed and the two double mattresses. "And that's where you are wrong, Lizzie Mcguire! 3 persons fit on the double bed. Don't worry, it's not the first time we had a lack of space.." The others came in too. I really didn't want to share my bed with two other persons, so I suggested someone else would sleep there, so Niall and I could take one of the mattresses. "But Liz, It's YOUR bed. That means you get to sleep there!" Harry said with a evil grin on his face. He was such a dipshit.. Liam and Danielle, and Louis and Harry quickly layed down on the mattresses, leaving me standing in the middle of the room, pouting. Nobody wanted to sleep in the bed, ofcourse. I quickly came to the conclusion I had to share my bed with Niall and..Zayn. Could this get any worse? "I call dibs on the outside! Otherwise I can't sleep." Yes, it could get  worse. Now I had to not only share a bed with my boyfriend and my surrogate boyfriend, I had to sleep in the middle. Zayn winked at me, when no one saw it. This was going to be interesting..

Two hours after we went to sleep, I was still awake. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that it was cramped. Like, you couldn't move an inch. Also, I was really hot, because I was pressed against Niall, not wanting to.. well you know what I mean. I had to turn around, to get some air. I slowly turned around and now faced Zayn. I vaguely saw the contours of his body, his face only half a foot away. Just then, I got my second almost-heartattack of the day. Out of nowhere, Zayn started whispering. "Can't sleep either, huh?" "How did you know I was awake?" "I sensed it." "Oh.. and no I can't sleep.. Too hot and too cramped. What about you?" It went silent for a few seconds before he hesitantly said: "I have my reasons." I didn't have to ask further, I knew what he meant, he just couldn't say it out loud in case somebody else was awake aswell. The reason he couldn't sleep was because he layed next to 'the happy couple', which happened to be Niall and the girl he wanted for himself. It must be very confronting for him. I sighed "I'm sorry, Zaynie.." He didn't reply. I shifted a little, so I was now laying on my back, and grabbed his hand. It was like some sort of calmness flowed over me, and within minutes I fell asleep. Halfway through the night, Niall wrapped his arm around my waist in his sleep, my fingers still linked with Zayns. It was ironic, really. The way us three layed there, reflected the entire situation. The girl cuddled up with the blond-haired boy, but she couldn't let go of the black-haired one, because deep down, she wanted him too. Yeah... It's pathetic, but true. Maybe that picture was going to change very soon, maybe in a while, or maybe not at all. Who will know? I guess time will tell..

 

*A/N Woop woop, writed this chapter in one night! Proud of myself! Also, I love the way this chapter turned out, especially the last part is so.. mysterious ;) Luckily, you guys are no Sherlock, so I'm the only one 'who knows'. Moehaha! No really, things will get interesting soon, I promise! I mean, ofcourse the temptation is high, being in one room together for weeks. Especially when you are alone.. Enough with the hints, on to the serious questions! Like: TEAM ZIZ OR TEAM LIALL??? Yup, that's a really serious one, and you know it! Have a nice week XOXO
