9. I love you,and always will
After Jamie was done gushing over her new car, she swung the door open and hopped in, a smile spreading across her face. she gripped the wheel, grinning from ear to ear. She turned the key in the ignition, the engine revving up to life.
''She's a beauty,'' Jamie sighed in content as she ran her hand along the side of the car.
''Well? Don't you want to take it out for a spin?'' Niall offered, leaning across her door.
''Yeah. You've already got your license. Not like your boyfriend,'' Zayn teased, ruffling Niall's hair.
Jamie laughed. ''Sure,'' she agreed. She pressed a button to retract the ceiling of the car-since it was also a convertible-and there were screechy sounds as it did. It was a vintage car so it was pretty old. But Jamie looked like she absolutely loved it.
Then,instead of stepping on the accelrator and zooming off, Jamie got out of the car, and somehow managed to pull us all together in for a huge group hug.
''Thank you,boys.....for everything,'' she said, her eyes watery. ''I'm blessed to have met you,'' she said, looking at all of us until her eyes rested on Niall. Then, she stood straight, wiped her nose with the back of her hand and hopped back in. Niall pushed the door close for her as he pressed his lips to hers.
Oh,how I missed Danielle. But she couldn't make it today. I only had to wait one more day to see her.
''Be careful,'' Smith cautioned, his forehead crinkled. He's only met her for a day and he's already so protective over Jamie.
''I will,'' Jamie replied, smiling to her father.
''Don't honk the horn at anybody,'' I shouted over the engine,grinning.
''Don't worry, I won't honk at any music executive's bum,'' she teased, stepping on the accelerator and driving away,the tires screeching. I recalled the embarassment Louis and I felt when we did precisely that.
A reporter from 'The Sun' approached Lou and I:
Reporter: What was the most embarassing moment you've ever experienced?
To which I replied;
We were sat outside in our car waiting to go in for a meeting when this woman walked past and she was really attractive. We were proper going for it in the car and hitting the horn. The last thing Louis walked out with as she walked into the building was 'What a bottom!''
The flashback of the humiliating moment was interrupted by my phone that was ringing loudly in my pocket.
I checked the caller ID and immediately picked it up.
''Hey,babe,'' I answered.
''Hey,'' she replied, her voice clear as day on the other line. It was'nt as beautiful as it was when she was with me physically but I was grateful to hear her voice. I miss her so much. Her beautiful eyes, her really curly hair, her lovely luscious lips...everything.
''I miss you,'' I murmured, as I watched Zayn wrap his arm around Perrie's waist and pulling her towards him as he leaned down to give her a kiss. When she pulled away, her cheeks were flushed, a dazed look on her face.
''You know I miss you too,babe,'' she replied. ''I'll be there tomorrow,I promise. I'm so sorry for not being able to be with you and the boys and El and Perrie. And I would have loved to celebrate Jamie's birthday with you. She sounds wonderful.''
''She is,'' I agreed. ''But I love you more anyway. I love you and always will,'' I told her for the millionth time. It was hard to get Dani back-I was lucky that she still had feelings for me. I was miserable without her. I had to convince her that nothing happened between lenoa and I. Leona's a gorgeous woman but my heart belongs to Danielle. Sharing the dressing room with Leona during 'Children in Need' meant nothing. It was just convenient. And nothing happened anyway.
''I love you too. You have no idea just how much I love you,Li,'' she murmured. There was probably that brilliantly beautiful smile on her face. ''I've got to go. See you tomorrow,'' she said.
''Yeah. See you,'' I replied. Then I heard the line go dead. I kept my phone and went over to Niall. And just as I did so, my phone rang again.
''Management,'' I groaned, the boys groaning as well. Eleanor and Perrie didn't look so happy either.
Nevertheless, I answered the phone.
''We have a radio interview to do today, boys. It's for BBC Radio One,'' I told them, as I kept my phone once again. ''And they want Jamie to come along.''
''Why?'' Niall asked, his forehead crinkling. Smith had stopped talking to Aunt Gertrude and the girls to look at me. Even Louis and Eleanor had stopped snogging. Darcy and Quinn's faces were scrunched up in disgust as they watched louis and Eleanor. Taylor had stopped giggling as Harry turned away from her to look at me tooI shrugged.
Just then, Jamie pulled up, her hair messy after having been blown in all directions by the wind. She switched the engine off and hopped over the car door. Niall reached out for her hand and she willingly took his. She was still smiling widely, clearly satisfied with the short ride that she had just taken. But then, as Niall pulled her chin up to kiss her, she stopped him.
''Give me a minute,'' she pleaded, running into the flat. Niall pouted.
''What was that about?'' Harry asked, one of his eyebrows raised. Niall shrugged, still looking glum.
''Don't worry, she'll be back,'' Quinn comforted Niall, her hair shining in the sunlight. I ruffled her hair and she beamed at me, her perfectly white teeth showing.
And a few minutes later, Jamie came running out,smiling. She ran to Niall and hopped on him as she kissed him. Then, she hopped down,breathless, and looked at us, her forehead crinkled.
''Did I do something wrong? I just went to brush my teeth. I don't want to have morning breath when Niall kisses me,'' she said. I could see why Niall fell in love with Jamie. She's everything he's ever asked for. She's cute and funny and enjoys a good banter AND she's carefree.
''No,love. We just heard we've got a radio interview later on today,'' Niall informed her. Her face fell slightly.
''Oh,'' she sighed.
''And you're coming along.''
