~Trent's POV~

"Wait! Why are you going back so soon? You're leaving us?" I yelled at Miranda as she ran up to her grandma's house. I ran to catch up with her and grabbed my clothes, I was swimming earlier.

"Harry almost kissed me!" She whisper-yelled at me, it is possible, it's only a little more silent than regular. But wait, what? Harry Styles almost kissed her? THE Harry Styles? Almost? What?

"I pulled away." She looked down. What? Dangit I was thinking out loud again.

"Why?" "Er, well I thought it would be awkward. I just don't know. They'll think I'm a freak now, I've frickin' ran off twice in one night!" I could tell she was worried, I didn't want her to be.    

"No they won't, c'mon lets go back, come swim. We can just tell them you needed a drink of water. And anyways, why did you take a walk?" I stood up and patted my butt off. After offering her my hand she started talking. 

"You know how I need to be alone sometimes? When I just need to think? Yeah, that's all." I remembered her telling me that when we were in like 7th grade. It started then, I wonder why, we had been friends since forever and she never had to before. I remember! She came home from a vacation and it had changed her, alot. As much a 13 year old could change.

"Yeah, me too. I get ya sis. Let's get back and go swimming. Face your fears, pretty pleaseee?!?!?!?" I jumped up and down and we raced back down to the beach. Her winning of course, she was in track and field and cross country back in Washington, best in state. I was a basketball player. 

"Okay, no dunking me please!?" She screamed and ran into the water. Our big pile of clothes looked funny. Louis and Zayn weren't there. Funny.

"Uhh, where are Louis and Zayn?" The boys smirked as Miranda and I were squirted at with water guns I suspected they went to get, they had a bunch. I ran over there, out of the water and grabbed one, pulling Mir' with me, and we filled them up and shot at Niall and Liam with them. 

"WE SURRENDER!" They shouted at the same time, they threw up their arms and ran over to us, Niall picked Miranda up and Liam picked me up. Running with us in their arms, they were being chased by the other boys.

"Give me back my princess!" Harry shouted and shot at Niall with the water gun, "NEVER!!!" Niall looked back and stuck his tongue out at him. Smiling, Mir' bit Niall's back, he had her over his shoulder, and he dropped her. With that I kicked Liam's 'delicacies' and ran towards Miranda. We ran into the grasses and hid. I didn't think anyone saw us hide because they all started play fighting, like a war, Louis, Zayn, and Harry against Niall and Liam.

"I don't think they saw us yet." Miranda whispered to me. "Me neither." I looked backand the boys had stopped fighting.

"Where are the princesses? We all must find them, it is our common goal, lads!" Harry, Niall, and Liam started coming by us, but then turned around when they thought they heard something a few feet away. It was a rock, nice one Miranda!

"Did you throw that?" She nodded, "Nice job, chica." We high-fived silently. I guess one of them heard us because the next thing we knew we were both being picked up and thrown into the ocean.

"OHMYGODYOUGUYSASKEDFORIT!" It sounded like she ran it all together because she was running towards her captor, Harry. She pushed him underwater and sat on his back. She flew off him and splashed in Niall's face when she landed in the water, he was trying to sneak up on her. I just smiled, but then I got dunked by Louis.

"Hehahahahahah!" Zayn pointed as I got up out of the water, bad choice, I went back under and pulled him under, knowing he couldn't swim,and dragged him to deeper water, about a foot. Revenge was a bitch. "Ha!" I smiled as he doggy paddled back like a child.

"Let's play chicken! I call Miranda!" Niall shouted as he got Mir' up on his shoulders. "I call Trent!" Liam came over, I used to play this with my brother, before he went to college. 

"Okay, ready? GO!" Louis shot water into the air. I had a bit of an advantage, considering Liam was taller than Niall, "Wait, this isn't fair, Liam's taller than Niall, he should have to bend down!" Miranda knew better too. We ended up both in the ocean, knocking Liam and Niall over instead of eachother, it was fun.

"We should be going, I'm turning into a prune and I'm getting cold too." Miranda and I got up and walked to our house in between all the boys. 

"Goodnight loves!" They all shouted simultaneously. "We're coming over tomorrow, to help you guys finish unpacking." Harry smiled.

"I can't believe you guys are already inviting yourselves over, but it's okay, grams won't be home, she's going to water aerobics, so come at like 9 in the morning and you guys could leave whenever." Miranda seemed as happy as me. "I can't, Eleanor and I are going out." Louis seemed to glow when he mentioned her, aww. "And I have a date, I met her at a party a few days before you two came, sorry." Zayn looked sad to not come hang out, but I was happy he had a date. Good for him. 

"It's okay, we'll still have you three! So Liam, Niall, Harry, what are we gonna do?" I put my arms around Harry and Liam's necks, they were next to me. "Well, help you two unpack." Liam pointed to Miranda and me and I laughed, "Oh yeah, duh!" I face palmed because they already said that! 

"Well, we gotta go, but I can't wait until tomorrow!" Niall seemed sad to leave, even more than the rest. "But we had a great time tonight." Harry added. 

"Goodnight boys." Miranda and I walked inside. "I think I'm falling for Niall and Harry." Mir' instantly said and laid her head on the wall. 

"Isn't that a good thing? Not the both part, but that you've moved on?" I was happy for her, but I hoped she didn't get her heart broken, or me. 

"I just don't  know Trent."
