31. Spidey Senses
"Courtney someone's at the door!" I shouted from the kitchen as the constant knocking came from the front door. I sat in one of the bar stools sipping on my coffee as the knocking continued. "For God sake's." I mumbled before jumping down and going to open the door. "I am coming!" I shouted as the knocking at the door got louder. "Can I help you?" I asked opening the door.
"Hi, I am Courtney's-" He started only to get cut off by my yelling.
"Courtney someone is here to see you!" I shouted before leaving the door open and walking into Courtney's room.
"I am sleeping." She mumbled as she cuddled closer to Harry.
"Well there some guy standing outside saying he's your something." I said remember that I didn't even let the guy explain who he was.
"What day is it?" She asked now seeming a bit more awake.
"Tuesday." I said standing in the doorway waiting for her to do something.
"Shit." She grumbled before tumbling out of bed and running out of the room leaving a whining Harry behind. "Why did you have to be here so early!" Courtney whined pulling the boy from earlier into the room and for the first time noticed he had two suitcases with him.
"Just to piss you off." The guy said smirking at her before following Courtney into the kitchen.
"Well good job Ryan you've only been here five seconds and I already want to murder you." Courtney responded while grabbing stuff to make breakfast.
"You drink coffee?" Ryan said lifting the cup that held my now cooling coffee inside.
"Yes." I said walking over to steal it back, but inside he took a sip of it.
"Black with two sugars?" He said and I just blinked at him not knowing how the hell he knew that just from a sip.
"Stop being creepy." Courtney said taking the cup from Ryan and placing it in the sink and returning to make breakfast which consisted of pancakes, eggs, and bacon. After a few minutes of just staring at Courtney she finally felt my eyes on her and she turned and looked at me. "What?"
"Maybe I wanted to drink that." I said pointing to my abandoned cup of coffee that was now sitting in the sink.
"Well fuck that cuz now you aren't" She snapped back. Ryan raised an eyebrow at her as she ran her hands through her knotted hair and continued cooking.
"So, who is this boy?" I asked directing my question about Ryan to Courtney.
"This is my asshole of a brother." She replied before Ryan could get his mouth open. "You may have seen him before on that day Niall basically promoted you to girlfriend." She continued. Ryan looked like he grimaced as I felt his stare stay on me. A rise of uncomfortable feelings rose in the pit of my stomach.
"I'll be in my room." I muttered leaving Courtney and her odd brother alone in the kitchen. Passing Courtney's room to get to my own, I heard Harry mumbling followed by a loud thud. Peering my head in the room, I saw him sprawled on the floor of the bedroom beside the bed and I only shook my head as he groaned, before I continue to my own room where Niall was still sleeping. I don't know what it is, but there is just something about Courtney's brother that gives me the creeps. I don't know if it's just me being judgmental which rarely happens if it's what I guess you could call my spidey senses tingling, I can't shake off the feeling that there is something bad about him.
"Courtney never told me your name." Ryan said as he walked into the living room and sat next me. After a few more hours of sleep cuddled after breakfast next to Niall, he decided that he was going to go and get us some lunch. He had decided on a small burger place a few blocks away from the flat.
"Victoria." I answered Ryan which made the same shivers from earlier come back and I don't think that it helped that Ryan a bit too close for my liking.
"I am guessing you aren't from Canada since I haven't seen you until today." Ryan said stretching his arms so his arms rested behind my shoulders on the couch.
"No, I am from America." I said smiling slightly remember the warm weather from California and how much it differs from the cold weather here in the UK.
"California, right?" He said smiling back at me, while I only stared at him in shock. That one little statement that made what I was now calling my spidey senses, to start tingling on overload mode. Courtney had always told me how much she hated Ryan so there is no way she would have openly told him even my name much less where I was form.
"Sorry there was a bit of a traffic jam there was an accident a few block from here." Niall said was he walked in.
"It's fine." I said standing up to greet Niall with a small peck before grabbing his hand and leading him into the kitchen so we could eat.
"Wow, Victoria what a horrible way to treat your guest just leaving them all alone the second blondie walks in?" Ryan asked standing in the doorway of the kitchen.
"Sorry I am just a bit hungry." I said smiling sheepishly at him while holding up a fry from one of the bags that Niall had brought with him.
"Still very rude of you." He said smiling before grabbing a bottle of water from the fridge and going back into the living room leaving me and Niall alone in the kitchen.
"That kid gives me the creeps." Niall mumbled under his breath as he pulled out the food from inside the bags and placed one of the burgers in front of me.
"But he is Courtney's brother we have to be nice to him." I said before taking a bit of my burger, before almost choking on it. "This one is yours." I mumbled the second that horrible taste of onions invaded my mouth.
"Sorry, my fault for not checking." Niall apologized with a faint smile on his lips before taking his burger and handing me mine.
"It's fine." I said leaning over and kissing his cheek before taking a long sip of the soda that came with the meal hoping that the taste would go away.
"Your reaction was completely adorable, though." Niall said while trying to imitate my disgusted expression.
"I did not look like that!" I laughed as he continued to try and mock me.
"Yes you did." He said giving me a quick peck on the lips before going back to his lunch.
"Remember you two we eat and cook in this kitchen." Courtney warned before stealing one of my fries and walking back into her room leaving me and Niall to finish our meal, but half way through the meal I felt a pair of eyes burn on us. Niall had a point this boy really did give you the creeps and I knew that my spidey senses were really trying to warn me about something, but I just didn't know what.
*throws confetti everywhere*
WE HAVE REACHED THE 30th CHAPTER!! And things are about to get serious...DUN DUN DUN!!
Now me and Courtney honestly have no clue how many chapters this story will be since we don't really have a storyline we are just writing. So you don't have to worry about it ending anytime soon, but maybe we'll end this story and make a second book? And we can start like a series or something? I don't know.
