18. Soccer And A Picnic

    We decided to go to the park since it was the closest to the hotel. It wasn't huge or anything but it was definitely bigger than the one in Ms. There were people walking dogs, riding bikes, jogging, and I even saw a couple of smaller kids playing on the playground while their mothers talked to each other. It was really pretty. I took a few pictures of the landscape, taking it all in. Liam thought it would be fun to pick me up and spin me around but he ended up getting dizzy and falling down, taking me with him. We got many stares but all we could do was just laugh about it. Next we ate at Nandos. I had never eaten at one before but it was really good. The day was ending, becoming dark now so we went back to the Hotel. Ruth and Nicola were out clubbing and our parents were both alseep. I was tired too but I wanted to skype Ariana, Brooke, and Trent first. I showed them around the penthouse and the pictures I had taken so far.

"How long till y'all audition?", Ari asked.

"Uh, hey Liam, when do we audition?"He was in the bathroom washing up for bed.

"I think in three or four days", he called. Ari heard him.

"Well goo luck! How long will you be there?", Trent asked.

"Well if I make it then I go to boot camp and so on but I ma not even make it."

"Don't say that! You both are gonna make it", Brooke encouraged.

"Yeah you'll both make it for sure", Ari agreed. Trent stayed quiet while discussing the topic.

"Trent what do you think about Aubree doing this?", Brooke asked.

"It's uh, it's great. Just wish she could have auditioned here." I didn't really know what to say to that. I know I could have auditioned in the U.S. but I couldn't support Liam or have this experience/vacation. My family hadn't been on a vacation in a while. I do remember the last one though. We went to Disney World for Jared's 16th birthday. He always wanted to go but we had to save up a year or two in advance. As for my 16th birthday, I just had a campout with Ari, Trent, and Brooke. I never really cared to do anything huge. I was a pretty simple person. Liam came and sat down on the bed with me, talking to everyone.

"Well we have to get some sleep, big day of exploring tomorrow. Bye guys." They all said goodbye so I ended the call.

"I'm so tired, night." He turned on the box fan, turned off the light, and got in the bed. I put all my stuff up and grabbed a big soft blanket, laying down on the opposite end.

"Night."

    I slept really well, despite being on the wrong end of the bed. Liam woke me up by throwing a pillow or two on my head. He had a big smile on his face while I woke up. I only fell back onto my pillow and covered my face with a pillow.

"What time is it'? I muffled under the pillow. He jumped over and picked up the pillow and started pinching my cheeks in a playful way.

"It's time to get up", said in a babyish tone. I was still half asleep, so I pushed his hand away and rolled over on my stomach.

"Don't make me drag you out of bed", he threatened.

"You wouldn't", I mumbled back. I just wanted sleep and since he refused to tell me the actual time, I didn't care how early or late it was.

"I warned you.." I was picked up into his arms and spun around, being tickledthe whole time. I was definitely awake now.

"L-liam! Put me down!" I couldn't stop laughing. He bagan laughing too.

"Wait, what was that? I couldn't quite hear you." The tickling became crazier and I began laughing so hard that I started crying a little.

"I'll g-get up, I p-promise!" He stood me up on the ground.

"Good", he had a huge smirk. "Now get ready because we're going out."

"Where?"

"Just get ready." I did as I was told, taking a quick shower. I didn't know what was in store so I just dressed very casual and pulled my hair up in a high bun. I didn't care for any makeup so I left it off.

"Want to tell me where we're going?" I looked at my phone and saw that it was 8:22am. Earlier than usual for me.

"Well my mom and dad took your parents on a bus tour, Ruth is having a day with her boyfriend, and Nicola is sleeping in so we're gonna do our own thing."

"Like what?"

"I was thinking of breakfast first." I followed him into the kitchen and found some eggs and bacon on the fridge. Nicola had gotten groceries sometime before coming back to the hotel last night. I let Liam make the eggs while I heated up the bacon. We had some raw bacon you could bake but that would take too much time so I just heated up the premade kind. After we ate we went outside and walked to an empty soccer field. "Have you ever played?" "Nuh uh." "I get to teach you then", he said with a big grin. We started by just kicking the ball around then he taught me a few simple tricks and plays. After that he let me run the ball down the field a time or two to get the hand of it. "Now you're ready to play." "Play? I'm so clumsy-" "You'll do fine, I promise. Just one on one." I was relieved it wasn't going to be an actual game. He gave me the ball to start and I get it past him but he took it back before I could make a goal. I smile at his competitive side and catch back up. I manage to get it from him and run full blast down the field and make the first goal. Liam ran up behind me laughing and tickled me. We played for a few more hours until we got hungry. He gav me a piggy back ride letting one of my legs dangle as usual. We walk for awhile and come upon a river. I saw an older couple walking hand in hand smiling at us which made me smile to myself. We walk a little longer to find a picnic all set up at the waters edge. "Did you set this up?" I asked in awe. "With Ruth's help." I could sense him smiling. He sat me down and handed me food. We dug in while talking, laughing, and just being typical teenagers. "Hey Aubree, come over here." I went over to sit right where the water starts. We watched as the sun slowly set, disappearing behind trees in the distance.
