4. Liam Payne

      I stuttered for a moment, getting lost in his deep brown eyed gaze.

"Oh, I-I'm Aubrree. Aubree Tatum McMasters".

"Oh, I didn't know we were doing full names. Well I'm Liam James Payne". I laughed a little and got lost in his eyes again.

"You have a British accent?"

"Yeah I'm from Wolverhampton, England".

"Dang! So why are you in Mississippi?"

"We have some close family friends down here. I like it here pretty well".

"I've alwas lived here, it's nice I reckon". He started to chuckle a little.

" 'Reckon' ", he repeated, still chuckling.

"I forgot I have a southern accent", I joined in the laughter.

"It's adorable", he continued.

"Thanks-" I felt a tug at my arm.

"Aubree come on. You've barely skated!", Brooke shouted.

"O-okay, I'm coming. Well it was nice meeting you Liam."

"Nice to meet you too Aubree", He gave a stunning smile that made me want to stay longer.

      We skated for an hour longer then our ankles began to get sore. I was the first to sit down and take the skates off, minutes later everyone else had enough of their ankles hurting so we all gathered around.

"What animal are we gonna see first?", Ari asked all anxious like. We tossed animal exhibits around until we all came to an agreement on the polar bears. They happened to be my favorite.

"They're so adorable!", I squealed.

"I know! just look at them swim!", Ariana added. Trent only rolled his eyes and laughed to himself.

"Girls and teddy bears. I'll never understand it." , Trent commented and leaned against the railings of the exhibit.

"Well, their cute! How could you not like them?" , I asked in a bit of a protest. Soon enough, Ariana joined in the conversation and we were all arguing about polar bears. It was rather silly that a group of teenagers were bickering about the fluffy creatures.  We received many crazy looks but didn't pay a bit of attention to them.

"I beg to differ. Polar bears are rather fascinating creatures." I heard a voice jump into the argument. I smiled and turned on my heels to face the person. 

"Thank you!" I applauded the figure. I heard his laughs and finally figured it was Liam. A blush immediately overthrew my face. 

"O-oh. Well hey there Liam", I stumbled out.

"Hey there mate", he replied with a smile. I didn't know what to say so I turned back to see the group staring at Liam and me.

"Who's your friend there?", Ari questioned.

"Oh! Sorry this is Liam. I kinda ran into him while skating. He's visiting all the way from England".

"England! Why are you in Ms?"

"We have some close family friends down here and in Florida and we've already stopped by in Florida". Everyone seemed very interested, even Trent, that someone from England would be here. Liam stayed and talked with us, keeping us very entertained with his accent then while we were walkng to the elephant exhibit, he pulled me to the side.

"So ehm. Do you think I could have your number? Maybe you and your friends could show me around and stuff?" I couldn't help but smile a toothy smile.

"Sure and okay hand me your phone". He let out a deep breath as if he were relieved and handed his blackberry over. Once I typed in my number I handed it back but not before I saw a message from a girl named Danielle asking where he was and she couldn't find him etc. I tried to play it off cool and put on a smile anyway while handing it back-he must have seen the text.

"Oh it looks like I have to go. I'll text you tonight?" I nodded but on the inside I couldn't help but be a little bummed out. He gave me a quick hug and headed in the direction of the entrance while I caught up with the rest of the trio.

"Where did Liam go?", Brooke asked.

"Not sure, he just said he had to go".

"You so like him", Ari added.

'I-is it that obvious?", I asked holding back.

"You just looked so interested by everything he said and stuff. Y'all would be cute". I smiled as we continued through the zoo until it was almost eleven. The whole ride home we listened to all kinds of music by just about any artist just to keep it interesting-but the one thing that kept coming to mind was that text I saw. Was Liam taken? Maybe Danielle was just a friend, or was it I who was just a friend to him?

****Sorry if this is so short! I've just been away for a couple of days so I really wanted to get this chapter up. Please tell me what you think and if you like it so far (: xXabby
