Taylor starts to fall for him again, and someone else... But is there someone in the way of them being together?


5. Kisses, Jealousy, and Numbers


*Liam's POV--*

Taylor is just so beautiful. I can't get her out of my mind, but I think she likes Louis. They were just lying on the floor for like an hour, giggling and talking. I KNOW Louis likes her, you can tell when Louis likes someone. Wait, why do I keep thinking about Taylor? I'm with Danielle! But we have been having some problems lately...No, I love Danielle. I don't even know Taylor. I still think she looks familiar though, I just don't know where I know her from.

"LIAM!" Harry's voice snapped me out of my thoughts. I was so caught up in my thoughts I forgot we were playing truth or dare still. I sighed, "What Harold?"

"Truth or dare?!"

"Dare." I'm gonna regret this.

Jessie leaned over to Harry and whispered in his ear, Harry smiled and nodded. "I dare you... to snog Taylor for at least a minute...In the closet though, I don't want to see this."

My eyes grew wide, I looked over to Taylor and she had the exact same look. "B-but...I'm dating Danielle." But to be honest, I do want to kiss Taylor.

"It's just a dare Li, and we won't tell Danielle." Zayn said.

I sighed, "Fine, let's get this over with." Please let this last forever.

Before you know it, I was getting shoved into a small, dark closet with Taylor.

"You guys aren't coming out until you guys snog!" I heard Harry yell from outside.

"Let's just get this over with, they're obviously not going to let us out." Taylor whispered, she was standing in front of me, leaning against the wall. I could barely see her it was so dark.

"Okay." I whispered back right before I smashed my lips onto hers. She was a bit surprised, but willingly kissed back. Fireworks exploded. I immediately put my arms around her waist just as she put hers around my neck. I pushed her up harder against the wall, deepening the kiss. I slowly slid my tongue across her bottom lip, begging for entrance, in a matter of seconds, she responded and she opened her mouth. Our tongues were wrestling for dominance, but I won.

"You guys can come out nowwwwww." I heard someone say from outside, but we ignored it.

I moved my hands from her waist down to her bum, she held on tighter, as I picked her up. She wrapped her legs around my waist.

"Orrrrr notttt." I heard Jessie say from outside. Taylor broke away slowly. We were gasping for air. Suddenly the door swung open.

"Okaaaaayyyyy. Li, you have a-- Oh good, you stopped! C'mon then, let's go back to playing this game." Harry said, Jessie Zayn, and Louis were standing behind him. I looked at Louis and his face was filled with anger. He gave me a look that said, "We'll talk later." I nodded, and went to sit back down in my place to resume the game.

I'd be lying if I said that wasn't the best kiss I've ever had in my life.


*Taylor's POV*

After I shared the best kiss ever with Liam, we got bored with truth or dare so we decided to watch a film. Or movie as Jessie calls it.

"LOUIS!! YOU'RE MY FILM BUDDY!!" I yelled, jumping onto one of the couches.

"Okay..." He replied, looking at the ground. Something wasn't right about him.

"What should we watch? Something funny." Zayn said, looking through the selection of films at the hotel.

"Hallpass?" Jessie suggested.

"Dude, no. I don't feel like seeing penis." I said, shuddering.

"That's not what you were saying in the closet with Liam..." Harry said, smirking. Zayn and Jessie stumbled on the floor, and started rolling on the floor laughing. I blushed and looked down. Louis rolled his eyes, and sat down on the couch next to me. Liam walked into the kitchen, avoiding my eyes. Way too make things awkward, Harry.

"Let's watch 21 Jumpstreet! I haven't watched it, and I heard it's really funny!" Zayn said, everyone nodding in agreement. I pulled out my phone to see if I had any messages. Nope.

"Oh my gosh, Jess. It's 1:30 in the morning! We have work tomorrow, but we don't have to go in until 11, so we better go home!"

"How about you guys just stay here?" Harry suggested.

"No, I can't do that to you guys!" I glanced at Jessie, she was giving me a pleading look. I figured she'd want to stay with Harry, they're just so adorable together.

"Oh Taylor Waylor, shut up. You're staying here, and we'll wake you up in the morning to go to work." Louis says as he scoots closer to me on the couch, and puts his arm around my shoulder. "How does that sound?" Is he talking about his arm around my shoulder or the staying the night thing? Because right now I'm just thinking about his arm. Why am I getting these thoughts? I thought I liked Liam. No. I love Liam, but I might like Louis. Wow, that doesn't make me sound like a whore.

Liam walks back into the living area, he plops down the couch beside the one Louis & I were sitting at. Every time I look at him I think of our kiss. It was perfect. My stomach was doing flips.

"Okay, I guess we'll stay the night." I said, sighing. Truthfully, I wanted to stay.

"Yayayayayay!!" Louis pulls me closer and snuggles with me. I lay my head on his shoulder, and watch the film.

I fell asleep thinking about why I was snuggling with Louis instead of Liam.




I woke up to something moving on me. I opened my eyes slowly and saw beautiful, light blue eyes staring at me.

"Good morning gorgeous." It was Louis. His morning voice was so husky and sexy.

"Morning." I replied with a smile. "Can you get off of me?"

He chuckled, and nodded. He rolled off the couch onto the floor, making a loud noise, causing the others to wake up, except for Zayn. He didn't even flinch.

"Whaaaat timeeee is ittttt?" Jessie said from the love seat, with Harry's arm snaked around her waist. Dawwww.

"It isss" I turn to look at the huge clock on the wall. "8:30. So we're good on time for now."

"Gooood." Harry kisses Jessie on the cheek, and gets up from the love seat, and walks into the kitchen with Liam. Louis, Jessie, and I follow them, leaving Zayn sleeping on the couch.

"Hey mates, Kayla's gonna fix some foo-- Oh shit, I didn't know we still had guests!" Niall walks into the kitchen, holding hands with a girl, who must be his girlfriend. She had longish bright red hair. Niall's in his boxers topless, and Kayla is in a tank top and short shorts, giggling. Both of their hair is a mess.

"Dude, go put some clothes on!" Jessie and I yell, covering our eyes.

Niall laughs, and drags Kayla with him to go put some clothes on.

"Well that was a lovely introduction." I say, slowly uncovering my eyes to make sure it was clear.

"It happens every morning, and every night Kayla's here, they go at it like crazy squirrels." Louis says, rolling his eyes. 'It's quite disgusting."

Niall and Kayla appear with their hair fixed and clothes on. "Sorry girls, I didn't realize you were here." Niall looks at Jessie and I, smiling.

He turns to Kayla. "Yo bitch, make me some food."

Kayla chuckles, "Sure babe, what do you want?" She was from America, you could tell by her accent.

"The usual. And hurry up! Papa's hungry from last night." I couldn't tell if Niall was messing around or being legit.

Kayla walks over to the pantry, and gets out ingredients to make pancakes.

"Yeah, see. She's my bitch." Niall says, grinning.

Kayla walks up to me, and gives me a hug. Then Jessie. "Hi, I'm Kayla!" She says really enthusiastic for in the morning.

"Well, we'll let you girls talk, and us food." Niall kisses Kayla's cheek. "We're going into the living room to wake up Zayn." He says walking out of the kitchen with the boys.

"I'm Taylor, and this is Jessica, well, Jessie." I reply, smiling. This girl is really sweet. We all talk for a bit, and get to know each other as I help her cook pancakes for all of us.

"We should all hang out!" Kayla says. "I'm sure we'll be seeing each other again!"

"Yeah, let's get together, and go shopping! Have like a girls day! You seem really awesome." Jessie replies, jumping up and down. She's a morning person, unlike me.

"Thanks! You girls are really sweet, I can tell we're going to be good friends." Kayla cooks the last pancake, and turns off the stove. "Come and get it boys!"

All of the guys run in the kitchen, and we all sit down at the table, and eat breakfast.

"Man, I could get used to this. This should be a morning tradition." Louis says, looking directly at me.

"I wish! You guys are going to have to leave eventually!" I reply, stuffing my mouth full of pancakes.

"Well, we actually are stopping here, that's why we got a hotel room. We have a two week break."

Two more weeks with Liam, my ex-best friend, who I'm in love with still. Who I did a full on make out session with in a closet. And then there's Louis, who I have just only met yesterday, but I'm starting to get feeling for.

We eat our breakfast, and we make the boys wash the dishes. "Well boys, thank you for letting us stay the night. We have to go to our apartment, and get ready for work." I get up and put my shoes on.

"WAIT! Give me your phone! I'm gonna put all of our numbers in!" Niall says to me. I nod and hand him my phone.

"I'll put your numbers in Jessie's, mine is already saved." Harry says, Jessie gets her phone out of her pocket and hands it to Harry, smiling.

"Okay, so I'm gonna put me in as 'Niall, the sexy Irish one," Kayla in as, 'Ginger friend'" Kayla hits him. "Ouch! I love your hair though babe. Anyways, you already have Harold's. Umm, Zayn! Zayn as 'Zaynie babe' because that's what I have him in my phone as. Louis as 'The Sexy Tommo'. Liam is going to be The-" Niall cuts off. "It says Liam's contact already exists?"

"What?" Liam gets up with his eyes wide.

"Yeah it's in as... Hold on, let me check...Oh it's in as 'Sexiest best friend everrrr ;) aka Liam'" Niall replies, with a confused look on his face. All the boys run over to Niall, and look at my phone.

Jessie and my eyes grew wide.
