~Amber's POV~

School is now over for the day. I walk outside and get on the bus to head to the college to train with Liam. I get there and get changed. When I get to the track, Liam is already there. We stretch out and then begin running. "How was your day Amber?" "It was fine. Kinda boring but what can you expect for a Friday. How was yours?" "It wasn't too bad. No homework." "Lucky. I've got Spanish and an English project. Both due on Monday." "Well that's high school."

Right before Liam and I go our separate ways, he asks, "We going to run this weekend?" "Yeah. Tryouts are Wednesday so I need all the help I can get. Are you free tomorrow morning?" "I'm free for whenever you need me." He says with a smile. I smile back and say, "Thanks. I'll meet you at um..." "How about we meet at your house?" "You know where I live?" "Yeah. I've gone by it a few times and seen you hitting a soccer ball around." "Ok then. We'll meet at my house. Is nine ok with you?" "Perfect. See you tomorrow Amber." "Bye Liam." He walks off and I get on the bus and head to Zayn's house to work on the project.

~Liam's POV~

I really want to wait for Amber so we can go to the college together but I know she doesn't want anyone to find out about us being friends so I go by myself. I wait at the track for her. When she arrives, we get started right away. "How was your day Amber?" "It was fine. Kinda boring but what can you expect for a Friday. How was yours?" I hold back a laugh and answer her saying, "It wasn't too bad. No homework." "Lucky. I've got Spanish and an English project. Both due on Monday." She doesn't sound too happy about that but I can't do anything about it. "Well that's high school." We continue talking about school and our hobbies as we run.

We finish up and grab our stuff getting ready to go home. "We going to run this weekend?" I ask. 'Please say yes. Please say yes.' "Yeah. Tryouts are Wednesday so I need all the help I can get. Are you free tomorrow morning?" "I'm free for whenever you need me." I smile at Amber and she smiles back. "Thanks. I'll meet you at um..." "How about we meet at your house?" I interrupt. "You know where I live?" "Yeah. I've gone by it a few times and see you hitting a soccer ball around." 'Actually, whenever I go to Louis's.' "Ok then. We'll meet at my house. Is nine ok with you?" "Perfect. See you tomorrow Amber." "Bye Liam." I then walk home. This is going to be a good weekend. I enjoy spending time with Amber.

At home, I take a shower and get on the computer until I need to leave to hang out with the lads at Zayn's place.

~Amber's POV~

I get to Zayn's rather quickly and we get started on the project. "Did you have a good day Zayn?" "Yes. What about you?" "It wasn't too bad. Just glad it's the weekend." "I know what you mean." He says and chuckles a bit. "So do you want..." Zayn starts but is interrupted when his mom yells, "Zayn! The boys are here!" "Crap." "The boys as in your friends!?" I ask. He nods and then says, "They come over on Fridays. I'm so sorry Amber. I completely forgot." I hear footsteps on the stairs and start panicking. "Inside my closet. Now." I rush to the closet and close the door. I hear stuff being thrown around and the bedroom door opens.

"Hey Zayn." "Hey mate." His friends say. "Hey guys. How's it going?" "Fine." "Good." They reply. "Your mom says the pizza is on its way." Niall says. "Alright. We can do something until then." Zayn responds. "Video games!" I hear Harry and Louis shout. "Uh how about some movies?" Zayn asks. "C'mon man. We watched movies last week and the week before." "Fine." Zayn mumbles. I hear some noise come from the TV. I look through the slit in the closet and see all of the boys sitting down with controllers in their hands. I pull out my phone to text Zayn.

To Zayn:

Get me out of here.

From Zayn:

I'm trying. But...

To Zayn:

But what?

From Zayn:

It could be a while til you get out of there.

To Zayn:

What do you mean!?

From Zayn:

The lads probably won't leave the room until the food gets here. I'll get you out ASAP. Just wait til I come get you alright?

To Zayn:

Fine.

I sit there and listen to the boys talk. "Did anyone notice how hot Amber looked today?" Harry asks. I cover my mouth trying to suppress a gasp. "She did look fit today." Louis says. 'Does Harry and Louis like me? No, that's impossible.' They say a few more things about me but I don't really listen until someone brings up soccer. "You trying out for soccer Niall?" Louis asks. "Nah. I just want to focus on school this year." "You? You're starting to sound like Liam mate." Zayn says and they laugh. "I heard that Amber is going to tryout." Liam pipes up. "Really?" "Yeah. She is also hoping to get captain." He continues to say. I hear Louis laugh before saying, "That won't happen cause I'm going to get captain." "You haven't even been practicing lately Louis. How do you expect to get captain?" Harry says. "I only need a few days of practice and someone to practice with. Niall?" "Sure Louis." Niall responds. "Boys! Pizza!" Mrs. Malik yells. I hear the boys get up and run downstairs. I sit there to wait for Zayn.

About 10 minutes later, someone walks in the room and comes over to the closet. The door is opened and I look up to see Zayn. I stand up and gather my things. "Sorry you had to wait so long." "It's ok. So I'll come over tomorrow at one and we can finish." "Alright." "How am I supposed to get out without your friends seeing?" "The window." He says and points to it. He helps me out onto the tree limb and tells me goodbye as I climb down. When I'm safely down, I go home to eat and then go to bed.

~Zayn's POV~

Amber gets to my house at 4:30 and we get started on our English project. "Did you have a good day Zayn?" "Yes. What about you?" "It wasn't too bad. Just glad it's the weekend." "I know what you mean." I say and chuckle. "So do you want..." I start to say but am interrupted when my mom yells, "Zayn! The boys are here!" "Crap." "The boys as in your friends!?" Amber ask. I nod and then explain saying, "They come over on Fridays. I'm so sorry Amber. I completely forgot." I hear footsteps on the stairs and notice Amber start to panic. "Inside my closet. Now." She runs into the closet and closes the door as I throw her stuff under my bed and sit down on my bed right as the door opens.

"Hey Zayn." "Hey mate." They say. "Hey guys. How's it going?" "Fine." "Good." They reply. "Your mom says the pizza is on its way." Niall says. "Alright. We can do something until then." I respond. "Video games!" Harry and Louis shout. "Uh how about some movies?" I ask so I can get Amber out of here. "C'mon man. We watched movies last week and the week before." "Fine." I mumble. 'Hopefully Amber understands and won't be too mad.' I feel my phone vibrate and pull it out to see a text from her.

From Amber:

Get me out of here.

To Amber:

I'm trying. But...

From Amber:

But what?

To Amber:

It could be a while til you get out of there.

From Amber:

What do you mean!?

To Amber:

The lads probably won't leave the room until the food gets here. I'll get you out ASAP. Just wait til I come get you alright?

From Amber: 

Fine.

Harry, Louis, Niall, and Liam have picked a game and gotten the controllers out. I pick up mine and we start playing. "Did anyone notice how hot Amber looked today?" 'Oh gosh. Amber can hear everything we are about to say about her.' "She did look fit today." Louis says. The two talk a little more about her clothes and then Louis decides to change the topic. "You trying out for soccer Niall?" Louis asks. "Nah. I just want to focus on school this year." "You? You're starting to sound like Liam mate." I say and we laugh. "I heard that Amber is going to tryout." Liam pipes up. "Really?" "Yeah. She is also hoping to get captain." He continues to say. Louis laughs before saying, "That won't happen cause I'm going to get captain." "You haven't even been practicing lately Louis. How do you expect to get captain?" Harry says. "I only need a few days of practice and someone to practice with. Niall?" "Sure Louis." Niall responds. "Boys! Pizza!" My mom yells. We all get up and rush downstairs. We get our pizza and as the guys start eating and talking again, I head back upstairs.

I walk straight to the closet and open it. I look down to see Amber looking up at me. She stands up and gathers her things from under my bed. "Sorry you had to wait so long." "It's ok. So I'll come over tomorrow at one and we can finish." "Alright." "How am I supposed to get out without your friends seeing?" "The window." I say pointing to it. I help her out onto the limb and say goodbye as she climbs down. I then head downstairs to the others.

We get done eating and go back to my room. I walk through the door first and see a paper laying next to my bed. 'That wasn't there before. Oh no! It must be Amber's.' I rush over and pick it up quickly. "What's that Zayn?" Louis asks. "Just my homework I was working on earlier." I say and stuff it into my backpack. 'Whew. That was a close one.' The boys and I get back to playing video games. Once they leave, I head to bed.
