19. Realists and rumours


POV Zayn

"Liz!!" Niall yelled, from his spot on the couch, his leg held up by a pillow. She walked out of the bathroom with a frustated look on her face. "What is it now, Niall?" "Can you make me a sandwich, please?" For the past few days, Liz had taken care of Niall, because he still needed rest, after the accident. She had school, but she decided to stay in England a couple days longer. Looks like he started to grow on her nerves. "Why didn't you ask Zayn or Harry to do it? They are right here!" "B-but.. they don't make sandwiches as good as you... Pretty please?" He started pouting, which made her sigh. "Fine..Can't wait for you to walk again." She said, mumbling the last part, disappearing in the kitchen. "You are really taking advantage of her, aren't you? Not very nice.." Harry said, raising his hands. "It's cold in here, I think I need a blanket.. Can you get it for me, Harry?" Niall said, a devilish grin playing on his lips. "You're evil, Horan!" Harry slapped the back of his head when walking past him to get a blanket. "I can't help it I'm suffering like this!" Niall yelled after him. "Yeah, suffering from self-pity!" Harry yelled back from the other room. That made us both laugh. "I must say Niall, you are very lucky. I think Liz is the best girlfriend someone can ever imagine." "Yeah, she is.. But sometimes I get nervous. I mean, it's my first real relationship, like the first serious one." "Nervous? About what?" "That I go to fast.." "Alright, to make sure we are thinking the same thing, you're not talking about sex are you?" His cheeks turned red. "N-no! I think that's going pretty well, if you ask me. I'm talking about the relationship itself. She's graduating in a couple of weeks, and I really want her to move in with us. But maybe it's too early.. What do you think?" Great, of all people, he asks me for advice, how ironic! I scratched the back of my head. "Well, I think you should do it. Just ask her when you think it's the right time. I think all of us would love her to live here!" And by all of us, I meant me. The idea of having her around all the time gives me butterflies in my stomach. "You're right! I'm going to do it! I have to tell the others first though, it's their appartment too after all." At that moment my phone started ringing, the familiar sound of 'DNA' filling the room. Still had to change that.. I pulled it out of my pocket and looked at the screen. It was Modest Management.. I walked to the kitchen to have some privacy, but I forgot Liz was their too, making a sandwich. I guess I'm going to have to take that for granted, then. I leaned against the counter, pressed the answer button and held the phone close to my ear. "This is Zayn speaking." "Good afternoon, Zayn. Jack from Modest here. I would like some of you to come to my office in half an hour." "That's fine, what's the occasion?" "You will see when you get here." "Okay.. Who did you say had to come?" "You, Liam and Niall's current girlfriend Elizabeth Janssen, please." "You mean Liz? Why?" That caught Liz' attention. She turned around, giving me a questioning look. "What about me?" I held up my hand, gesturing her to be quiet. "Like I said, you will find out soon enough. See you in half an hour, I expect you to be on time." "Ofcourse, we will." I hung up the phone, and Liz immediatly attacked me with questions. "Who was it? What's going on? Why did you say my name?" "First of all; relax! It was Modest Management, they want speak to me." "Then why did you say my name?" "Because you have to come too.. So does Liam." "What, why? And when?" "I honestly don't know why. And.. In half an hour." "Then we better hurry! You call Liam and tell him to meet us there, I will go and tell the others we're gone. See you in the lobby in two minutes!" Before I could say anything, she rushed off. I took my phone out once again and dialed Liam's number, while walking downstairs to the lobby. I sat in one of the big chairs there. Louis and Liam were out buying clothes together, I just hoped he would pick up his phone. He didn't answer, so I was about to hang up, when I heard a rather high voice on the other side of the line. "Liam's phone. This is Louis speaking." "Hey, it's Zayn! Can I speak to Liam, please?" "You can't, he's in one of the dressing rooms at Harrods. They have like these awesome waterbeds here and.." "Sorry Lou, but i'm in a bit of a hurry. Just tell Liam to go to the Modest office as fast as he can, and wait there for me." "But.." "I'll explain later, just give him the message!" I hung up the phone. I admit, that was a bit rude, but I didn't want to be late. Liz arrived in the lobby too and together we walked to the doors. I was about  to open them when she stopped me. "Listen!" she said, while resting her ear on the door. There was a lot of noise outside. I looked through the small window and saw a crowd gathered on the street. Mostly paparazzi, but also some fans. They followed us everywhere we went for the last couple of days, now that we are in the news so much with 'the love triangle'. I sighed "I thought that was over.." "What are we going to do?" "Well, we have twenty minutes left, so we have to go now, one way or another. Just walk really fast, I'll be on your side." "Okay, in 1..2..3." She opened the doors and we started walking as fast as we could, covering our faces with our hands. The fans immediatly started screaming, and the press fired the usual questions at us (where are you going? Is it a date? How's Niall doing?) and took pictures. I still don't know how, but somehow we made it to the car without any trouble. We got in, still followed by the photographers. Thank god we had blinded windows. I started the engine and drove away, leaving the crowd behind us. 

POV Liz

My eyes were closed, and my head rested against the cold car window. Needless to say, I was exhausted. Niall kept me up all night, stirring and talking in his sleep. He even kicked me once or twice. I blame the painkillers he takes for his leg.. And don't forget to mention the reason why I was in a car in the first place, the conversation I was about to have with my best friends' manager. I had heard the stories on how tight management kept the boys, even before I became friends with them. Lou and Haz had told me everything about Larry. It was exactly what all the shippers thought, they had a relationship, but had to keep it a secret, no matter the cost. Eleanor wasn't a beard anymore, but it was still really hard on them. I had some much respect, I didn't think I could handle being forced to be apart from someone I love half of the time. It was effecting all of us actually, Harry and Louis weren't as happy and cheerful in public, I think I would be even worse.. Long story short, I knew what management was capable of, and I was terrified. I felt a hand on my arm, and my eyes fluttered open. I looked up and caught Zayn looking at me, worried. "Watch the road!" He quickly let go of my arm and placed both hands on the steering wheel again. "Sorry.. Are you okay?" "Yeah I guess.. Just really nervous to be honest." "Don't worry, I'm sure it's nothing special, it's probably just to get to know you." I sat up straight. "But what if it's not, Zayn? It's really suspicious that they called, just a few days after all the rumours about Ziz started!" "Then why did they ask Liam to come too, huh?" I didn't know what to say to that, so I sighed and closed my eyes again. After a minute or two, Zayn broke the silence. "Look, no matter what it is, good or bad, Liam and myself will be there right next to you. Just.. stay positive, alright?" I nodded my head and gave him a tired smile, he was right. Another few minutes later, we arrived at the parking lot of the huge building. Liam was already there, leaning against his car. He was suprised to see me, but he was also smart enough not to say anything. Liam and I always shared the same thoughts about literally everything, so I knew he was just as concerned as I was. 

POV Niall

"Here is your stupid blanket! Bloody hard to find it.." Harry said, walking up from behind me. He threw it at my head, making it dark for a few seconds when it landed. He walked in the kitchen and came back with a bottle of water. He slumped down on the couch, just a couple of inches away from my broken leg. "Where are Liz and Zayn? They are not in the kitchen anymore." He said, spinning of the bottle cap before taking a big gulp. "Don't you know? Zayn got a call from modest, he has an appointment there along with Liz and Liam. Louis should be home any minute." I shifted my leg, so Harry wouldn't accidently hit me. He slowly nodded, his hand supporting his chin. It looked like he was in deep thought. "What's on your mind, Harry?" He turned his attention towards me, and then spoke. "It doesn't make sense, the puzzlepieces don't fit together.." "...What?"  "The reason they have to come is obviously Ziz, but why is Liam there too?" That made me think too. "Then it's probably not about Ziz." "Oh it is, I just know. And you know it too, you just don't want to acknowledge it because you hate those rumours." I raised an eyebrow. "Why are you so sure about that, doctor Phil?" Harry sat back and kicked off his shoes, resting his feet on the small coffee table. "Then tell me how you really feel about it." I sighed. "I..don't know. Actually, I do. Ofcourse I hate those rumours. You don't know what it feels like when half of the fandom wants the love of your life to be with someone else." Harry chuckled lightly. "I think I do know what that feels like, Nialler." He said, referring to Eleanor. "Oh, yeah.. Well, you've been there. All those pictures and video's are so convincing, I almost start to believe it... But, I trust Liz. If she says the fans are overreacting and Zayn is just her best friend, then I believe her." "It's normal that it bothers you, you have every right. You're handeling it pretty well, you can see you truly love her." A smirk appeared on my face. "And that's why I wanted to ask her to move in with me." Harry's reaction was not what I wanted to see. That frown on his face wasn't good. "Are you sure about that ?" "Yes, why not?" "Come on Niall, be realistic. Her moving in would mean that she has to leave her family and friends, and go to a whole different country. Also, she has to find a job here, so the two of you have to have no doubt the relationship is going to last. It's a big deal!" Ugh, Harry could be such a moodkiller at times. "Then what do you suggest I do?" He leaned closer to me, a twinkle in his eyes. "I think I have a plan.." 

 

* A/N Wow.. I'm really bad at keeping promises, aren't I? At last, here's the new chapter! It's not really exciting, consider it to be a transition chapter. But, it does bring a lot of questions; 

- What's the appointment about?

- Is it really about Ziz? Then why is Liam there?

- What's Harry up to?

- Is Liz going to want to move in with the boys?

What do you guys think the answers are? Let me know! Also, don't forget to like and favourite the story, and keep on commenting! Now, about the next chapter. It will probably be uploaded before the end of the week. I'm really going to try to keep my promise this time ;)  Have a great week! XOXO
