Endlessly (A One Direction Love Story)

Anika has always been friends with Liam Payne. She forced him to play with her dolls when they were little, saw him in the front row at each of her dance recitals, forced him into the car for hours while she drove to auditions, and made him critique her every move at the studio. But two years ago, she sat backstage as her best friend sang his heart out for the second time. But this time, instead of coming home after two weeks, he was gone. For good. Liam and Ana still spend every waking hour together, but things are different. Niall and Ana are spending every waking hour together, and Liam's jealous. Will it be the classic story of the best friends who are meant to be, or are Liam and Ana destined to be... just friends?


2. Wide Awake



"Ana?" Leigh Anne said, waving her hand back and forth in front of her face. Ana's eyes fluttered a little and then opened. She looked up at Leigh and then reached her hand up. Ana slapped Leigh in the cheek and made a face.


"Nice work, hot shot!" She said, pushing away from everyone and sitting up. I chuckled at Leigh's slightly stunned face, but she was smiling anyway.


"Sorry!" Leigh offered. Ana laughed and gave her a one-armed hug. I thought they had just met?


"Wait, who do you already know?" Harry asked, wrinkling his eyebrows.


"I know Leigh Anne, Jade, Perrie, Jessy, Zayn, and Liam. And now I know Niall. Hey bro, what's happening." She said, nodding her head at me. How was she so casual and easy going? It was like nothing effected her, and she could turn everything into a joke.


"Oh. Well, I'm Harry, that's Louis, Eleanor, and Danielle." Harry said, pointing around. Ana raised a hand and waved it around a little. Eleanor and Perrie laughed, and Leigh and I helped Anika stand up again. When Ana was talking to Harry and everyone had dispersed to the couches, I walked into the kitchen and leaned against the counter. I touched my fingers to my lips. I could still feel her kiss. My fingers tingled and I heard someone clear their throat in the doorway. I turned around and saw Louis standing there. I dropped my hands and stuffed them in my pockets.


"So, how was that kiss?" Louis asked, crossing the kitchen and getting out a glass of water. I blushed and looked away so he wouldn't see.


"Erm, nice?" I asked. Louis laughed and began to heat some water for tea. He raised his eyebrows.


"Nice? That's all you have to say?" Louis asked. I glanced around and shrugged.


"Uh, yes? I've just met her, Lou." I asked. Louis chuckled and poured himself some tea. I leaned against the counter and pulled out some more mugs, and began to pour out more tea for everyone else. Louis filled up the water kettle again and I dropped tea bags in each cup of water.


"Would you like to know her better?" Louis asked. I shrugged and smiled a litte. Yes, I would like to know her better, but I didn't want Louis to know that. "That's a yes." Louis said, smiling at me. He took three mugs in his hands and left to the sitting room. I sighed and did the same. As I entered the room, I handed a mug to Ana and one to Jade. I then took the seat next to Ana. I tried my best to be casual about it but I felt every pair of eyes flicker to me, except for Ana's. She was too busy talking to Jade, who was even staring at me. She nudged Ana.


"Ana." She whispered.


"Hmm?" Ana asked. She turned to me and took a sip of her tea. "Thanks, Niall." She said, then turned back to Jade and carried on the conversation.


"So... let's get this movie going!" Eleanor said, clapping her hands together. She hopped up and pressed play, then sat back down with Louis' arm around her. Louis shot me a look and winked. Ana and Jade shutup and Ana sat back, our shoulders touching. She took a long sip of her tea and I did the same. A hot drop of tea spilt over all over my chin and dripped onto my shirt. I was too busy looking at Ana and I spilled my tea all over myself. Great. I wiped my chin with my sleeve and I heard Ana snort next to me. She shook with silent laughter as she looked at me, her face amused.


"Nice one, playa boi." She said mockingly. I laughed and elbowed her. Ana reached over and handed me a towel, then grabbed another and patted at the front of my shirt while I dried my face. My back tensed at her touch. She fingers were so light and soft, and it tickled a little.


"Uh, thanks." I said, smiling at her. She smiled back and took my mug, setting it on the side table. I put my arm around the back of the couch and Ana leaned back, propping her feet on the table while we watched Love Actually, Harry's pick.


"This one says Juliet's wedding. I think we're on the right track, don't you?" Ana said along with Kiera Knightly's character. I looked at her and raised my eyebrows. She didn't even look up at me when she said. "Shutup, I love this movie." I chuckled and watched Ana mouth along with each of the characters. Her hair was pulled behind her ear and her pale skin was littered with freckles, and her eyes were a warm chocolate brown. "Take a picture, it'll last longer." Ana said, shooting me a small smile. Woops, smooth one Niall.
