40. Chapter Thirty Nine



~Miranda's POV~


I woke up after a peaceful night's sleep. I kind of wished that I had a dream, because sometimes my dreams mean something. Tell me something. 

I hopped up and put on a pair of grey sweats and a plain white v-neck. I didn't care, I had no one important to see. I brushed my teeth and hair and put my hair up in a messy bun. El and Trent slept on the spare bed and couch, so I had to wake them up. 

I went over at jumped on El, she was on the bed. She jumped up and went into a ninja stance, wow. 

"GOD! Miranda you scared me!" I shushed her, Trent was still asleep, she slept like a freaking log. 

"Let's whisper sexual things in her ears, pretend to be Liam. She nodded and we crept over, not that our walking would wake her.

'Take off your pants. Damn, you make me hard. Swallow. And Blow on it.' were a few things said before her eyes fluttered open.

"You bitches, I thought that was really Liam." She stretched and got off the couch.

"I was wondering if you guys wanted to do something today, like go on a walk through Paris? Since Louis and Harry have an interview on the whole, "Larry" thing." Eleanor asked the two of us, I shook my head no, "I'm going 'public with Brett and my relationship'. I'm surprised that the press wasn't all over us in California, speaking of which. But, it's step one right now." She frowned.

"Well, what about you?" She turned to Trent, who was now changing. "No, sorry, Liam and I are going on a picnic." She half smiled.

"Now I'm gonna be lonely." She huffed and crossed her arms. "Aww, babe, hang out with Zayn, or Niall and Molly." I burst into laughter, knowing that she'd hang with Zayn, and that Nolly or Moall (Niall and Molly) was a definite no.

"Kill me. Just kill me and sell my soul to the devil." She put her head into her hands.

"C'mon, Zayn isn't bad." "I know, but he sucks at Fifa, so I'd beat him so bad. It would just deteriorate his ego." We all burst into hysterics, "Honey, nothing could do that to an ego the size of the universe." Trent patted El's back.

"Well, I have to be off, sorry for the suddenness. I promised Brett that I'd be there by twelve, and it's already 11:30. Hasta la vista." I waved them goodbye and grabbed my wallet and phone. Just in case.

I texted Brett for his apartment number, and the streets, I was surprised to see that he lived only three blocks from our hotel. I walked there, not wanting to waste money on a cab.

"Hey. Come in, NICOLE!! COME MEET MY GIRLFRIEND." He shouted as I walked in. I had no idea that she would be here, he said that she was at work, that bastard. I gave him a look and he smiled as Harry would have done to a naked woman.

"Hi, I'm Nicole, Brett's roommate." We shook hands but she pulled me into a hug, "I'm a hugger, sorry." I smiled at her forwardness. 

"Yeah, Brett's told me a lot about you. You guys are so close it's cute. You seem like a great friend. I hope we can get to know each other nicely." She beamed a gorgeous smile at me, and I instantly saw how he loved her so much, she was beautiful, nice, friendly, and I had heard some good things about her. 

Apparently, they had dated before, but she broke up with him suddenly, no reason. They were pretty serious at that point, so maybe that's what it was, or so he thought.

"It's great to meet you, but I have to be off to work, sorry for the sudden departure!" We exchanged numbers, she did seem like a great person, and she was off.

"Wow." Was all I said when she left. "I know. I hope this works." I honestly did too, they seemed like a great couple.

We hung out for a few more hours until Eleanor texted me, saying that she needed me right away.

"Hey, sorry, but my second wife needs me urgently. Come around at two tomorrow, so we can work on Niall. Bye!" I walked back to our hotel, wondering why El needed me.

"WHAT DO YOU NEED!?!?" I screamed as I walked into her room shared with Louis.

"You." I cocked my head, confused. "Why?"

"There's a breach in Plan B." My mouth almost dropped to the floor. How did this happen?


"So you're telling me that you heard something outside of our door, and you didn't pay any notice to it? How could you not? Now something is going to go real bad, and you guys were talking about it freely? I can't believe this!" My mind was going crazy, who was out there?

"I think Molly was out there." I looked over to Eleanor, who whispered to Trent.

My eyes grew wide, "This is fatal if it was her listening! How could this happen?" I was now completely gone. The plan is ruined and there's nothing we can do.

"I never said I was sure! But maybe she didn't hear. We can't just abort now, we have to just play it through." I agreed with El, we couldn't let this one little scare get the best of us.

"True, now let's just get to sleep. I'm exhausted and I have a date tomorrow. You guys get to meet Brett as my boyfriend." I walked back to my room, and fell asleep the instant I laid down.


"Hey, you look nice." Brett was outside of my door, looking me up and down. 

"I could say the same thing to you, but I would be lying." We were actually really close friends, he was funny, cool, and really nice. 

"Ha ha, very funny. Now let's go introduce me to your friends." I smiled and linked our arms, walking into Zayn and Niall's room, which everyone was in, I told them to gather in there.

"She's alive!" Harry got down on his knees and put his arms up to the heavens, that boy.

"Yes. Oh, I'd like to introduce you to Brett. My boyfriend." Everyone smiled back, Trent and El dealt with them, except for Niall and Molly. I could just see the flames in Niall's eyes when I said he was my boyfriend. Step One: Jealousy is complete.

I nodded towards Brett, signaling that Niall was jealous, and we sat down across from him.

"So how long have you guys been dating?" Niall was questioning us from clenched teeth, I smiled, "For about a week." Niall nodded.

"What about your sex life?!" Louis, oh Louis. I blushed, fake of course, "Don't ask them that." El punched him. They were damn good actors. 

"Well, Miranda, can I talk to you outside?" Niall, of course pulled me out the door, closing it behind him.

"Niall, what the hell?" I was whispering because I didn't want anyone to hear us.

"What the hell? WHAT THE HELL! You know what the hell. You have a boyfriend. That's what the hell." I was frowning immensely now, why would he care? He has Molly.

"You see, guys are greedy. Guys want what they want and they can have anything they want. What you need is a smack in the face. You have Molly. You're fucking dating her and you yell at me for having a boyfriend? Yes, what the hell." I started screaming, I didn't care if they heard. Guys were just inconsiderate chauvinist pigs. (Sho-van-ist)

"I broke up with her. I saw her trying to get with Zayn." I smiled. "Yeah. Exactly." Now, this is what surprised me.

Niall came and pushed me up against the wall, I knew what was next. "I should've listened. And I should have waited for you." He crashed his face into mine, lightly biting at my lips. I didn't want to kiss back, but my body chose otherwise.

"Niall. Brett. Niall!" I pushed him off of me, Brett came out that  exact moment, perfect.

"Miranda. What? Well, the plan worked perfectly." We both were beaming.

"What? What plan?" I chuckled, knowing that no one would tell him. 

"Nothing." I walked away, back into the room. "Don't say anything. All of you." I eyed them all, smiling.

"I'm going on a walk. I'll be back tomorrow." It was really nice outside, I was dressed in sport shorts, another white v-neck (I was turning into Harry), and my black Toms. I grabbed my phone and shoved a twenty dollar bill in my bra, hey, I was classy like that.

"Alright." Trent saluted me as I walked out, I passed Niall on the way, he looked away.

I had been walking for about an hour now, reaching a nice park. I had to say, I received some not-so-nice looks and words from these snotty French people (Not saying you're snotty if you're French, but that's what I got). I sat down and just watched everything go by for a few minutes before a figure sat next to me. Of all the benches in this park, next to me.

"Hey, I'm glad to see you again!" I grinned when I saw that it was Nicole. 

"Yo, so what are you doing here, next to me?" "I was walking back from work, I work about two blocks from here, at Gucci. I'm a designer." I almost spit out air, from sheer awe.

"Wow! I love art, but I suck at drawing clothes. You must be amazing at it, to work for Gucci! Oh, yeah, Brett and I broke up. You should really date him. He really likes you. I mean like almost to the extent of love, but I don't know." Her face was white, I shouldn't have said anything.

"Wow, you guys seemed real good together. I'm sorry. But I actually do like him. I hope you're not mad." She was so cool, I really liked her, Nicole.

"Actually, I've seen him more of a friend this whole time. I think you should go after him. Do whatever you feel is right though. We should keep contact when I leave though, even if it is in about a month." We hugged and she went to go get Brett. 

I was just so happy that I could help true love maintain its leash over people.

Now, just to accept the fact that Niall still loves me, that this will probably hurt me in the end, and that I should go with my gut.

Right now, my gut was telling me to sprint back and full out jump into Niall's arms. What could I say? Sometimes I was an easy forgiver, sometimes I wasn't.

I sat there for a few more minutes, thinking it through. I finally came to a conclusion that I would go and get a smoothie at the nearest McDonald's, get a large fry, feed the birds with a few of my fries, do a segway tour, and then go back and facially molest Niall with my tongue.

Great plan, huh, because my last one worked so well that it lasted a whole three days.

I ran to McDonald's, I couldn't wait to feed the relatives of Kevin.



Long chapter update, eh? So, 200 favorites, AMADPIANHFHOB HILKAFUAHBF.


Well, no. I hate feet. But I would give you all lollipops if I could. But none for the people who unfaved it. Those bitches.

So the next chapter will be long, maybe. If I make it really long, you won't get any extras, if I make it short, you guys can have up to two extras with more action in them.

What do you guys want? A really long chapter with some action, like this one, or shorter extra chapters with more action in them?

Epilogue will be posted a week after the final chapter, and then I will put up a notice on when the sequel will be posted.

I hope to have all of you guys read the sequel!! I'll post it probably in the beginning or middle of July, and there will be more info on the preview to sequel update that will be posted after the Epilogue.
