I woke up the next morning feeling Harry's chest against my back and his arm wrapped securely around my waist. I smiled slightly and fell back asleep.
I woke up again when he door to Harry's room flew open. Liam was standing in the doorway, the hall light shining into Harry's and my eyes. Harry covered his eyes with the back of his hand and I squinted at Liam. He looked bothered.
"It's late. I came to wake you up, Harry, but looks like you're kind of busy." He said fuming. I sat up.
"Liam, I didn't have anywhere to sleep!" I said angrily. "Why are you so mad I slept in Harry's bed?" I demanded. Harry rubbed my back.
"I... I don't know." He said rubbing the back of his head and walking out the doorway. I looked at Harry.
"Sorry." He muttered.
"If it makes you feel any better, I enjoyed sleeping here last night." I said poking his nose. He grinned.
"So did I." He winked at me and sat up too. I rolled my eyes and stood up. I sighed.
"I didn't bring any clothes." I said looking at the outfit I'd worn yesterday.
"You can borrow some of mine." Harry said standing up. He rummaged through his drawers pulling out a purple Jack Wills hoodie and black sweats. He threw them at me and they landed on my head and shoulders.
"Thank you." I said laughing and went to the bathroom down the hall to change and fix myself. I looked in the mirror and wrinkled my nose. I was a mess with my hair everywhere and my old make up smudged. I decided to take a shower later and just sprayed a lot of perfume on. I changed into Harry's clothes and combed my hair. I put it into a simple ponytail. I decided on no make up today, I didn't plan on doing anything, so I just washed off my old.
I walked into the living room and saw Lex was up and sitting next to Niall laughing. She was dressed in some of Niall's sweats. Perfect. I grinned at them. Harry and Louis were on the couch, too. Harry saw me and patted the spot next to him. I walked over and jumped next to him.
"Hi!" I said cheerfully.
"Morning" Louis said grinning. "I heard all about your night last night." He said laughing. I blushed.
"Lou!" I said laughing. I reached over and hit his arm. "Not funny."
"Very funny." He said quietly. I glared at him. Harry laughed the whole time.
"Where's Zayn?" I asked.
"Sleeping." Harry and Lou said at the same time.
"Course." I muttered. I decided to go wake him up. I walked to his room and opened the door. There he was, sleeping like a baby. I smiled. He was so cute when he slept. I sat on the bed next to him and poked his cheek until he stirred a little.
"Wake up." I said poking him still. He made a noise.
"Come on, it's almost lunch time." I said giggling. He opened his eyes and looked at me.
"If I wake up will you spend the day with me?" He asked groggily. I put my finger on my chin like I was thinking.
"Um, no." I said. He frowned. "I have to get home. My sister came home from college when I got into the car accident so I have to be home and be nice to her."
"Oh." He said simply.
"I'm sorry." I said. He shrugged.
"Happens to us all." Zayn said. I sighed.
"Well, um, I should go." I said awkwardly. I poked his cheek again. He swatted my hand away. "Wake up."
"I'm up, I'm up." He grumbled sitting up. I walked out of the room and sighed. I walked right into a body. Liam's, actually. Great.
"Um, sorry." I said. He just walked past me. I have had enough of this. "Liam!" I said loudly. He stopped and turned around, still silent.
"What is your PROBLEM?" I asked. He looked at the wall. "I don't know why I'm even here at YOUR house when you won't even talk to me. I try to be nice and I try to make a conversation with you even after our fight, but you couldn't at least act civilized to me?"
"I'm not the one with the problem here." He said quietly.
"Excuse me?" I raised my eyebrows.
"It's not my fault."
"What's not your fault? This whole THING is your fault! If you hadn't acted like an IDIOT about your stupid girlfriend who isn't even a LITTLE nice, we wouldn't have this problem." I said throwing my hands in the air.
"I broke up with Paege." Liam said.
"Good." I said. "So why won't you talk to me?"
"You really want to know?"
"Um, yes." I said matter-of-factly.
"Because I'm nervous, scared, and smitten." He said. I waited for him to explain. He took a step forward.
"I'm in love with you, Brandin." He said. My world stopped. I was in shock.
"I dated Paege to make you jealous. And I'm pretty sure it worked." He said running a hand through his hair. "But then you started getting close to Zayn, I was going to break up with her but then you kinda stopped hanging out with him for Lex." I nodded.
"Then it was Harry, and when I saw you with him this morning I couldn't take it. That had to be me." He took a deep breath and stepped forward.
"Brandin, I love you." He said. I bit my lip.
Then I smiled. This was what I've been waiting for. I walked up to him.
"I'm not ready to say 'I love you' yet, but I'm willing to give it a try." I said grinning. He smiled and took my hands.
"May I kiss you, Brandi Noelle Grass?" He asked looking into my eyes.
"You may, Liam James Payne." I grinned.
He leaned in and we kissed, our lips moving in sync. Whoa. This was what I've wanted for a whole year. Maybe even more. We broke apart and I smiled at him.
"So what are we?" He whispered to me.
"Friends." I said. He looked disappointed. "For now. I don't know if I'm ready to be with you yet. Don't take that the wrong way, but I've been hurt a lot these last two weeks." He nodded.
"I get it." He said.
"Doesn't mean we don't have a chance." I said grinning. "Don't look so down." He smiled.
"I'm not. I'm just happy you're giving me a chance." He said. I smiled at him after he said that.
"Come on, people will wonder where we are." Liam said. I walked in behind him and sat down next to Zayn who decided to wake up.
What an interesting day this has turned out to be.
I'll update again soon, I sure hope. I'm done with exams but I'm still in basketball but hopefully I'll find time. Thanks for reading! Love you <3
