7. Chapter 6

I glanced at my phone one last time and peered out the window. Liam wanted to do something with me today, and I agreed to it. To be honest, I haven’t been able to talk to him a lot. And now that I know that he and Niall might like me, it might be a little awkward, but I don’t want that to prevent me from hanging out with Liam. Besides, he seems perfectly fine to me…and cute!

My phone clock read 9:06. Liam should be coming soon. I just hope Niall won’t wake up anytime soon. He usually doesn’t wake up this early, but still. I feel like Niall is really protective of me so I feel like he’s gonna flip out.

My phone buzzed in my pocket. It was from Liam. It read: almost there. see ya soon :)

I replied and stood up, sneaking to the door. I peered up towards the staircase and listened. All was quiet, so I grabbed the door handle. But then I heard the upstairs toilet flush and Niall came thundering down the stairs. He rubbed his eyes and blinked a few times, heading to the kitchen. He hadn’t seen me, so I decided to make a break for it, but then he poked his head back in my direction.

“Jenny? What the hell are you doing?” he asked walking over to me. “You’re all dressed like you’re going out…”

“Yeah…um…Liam asked me to hang with him.” I said smiling, glancing out the window.

Niall’s face fell. He sighed and sat down on the couch. “Figures…”

“What Niall?” I asked, walking towards him.

He shook his head and turned on the tv. “Nothing.” he spat.

I was about to speak but Liam’s car pulled up. I turned back to Niall who was glaring at the tv.

“Niall. We are talking about this when I get back.” I said sternly, opening the door. Niall said nothing, so I shut the door behind me, heading down the stairs to meet Liam.

“Hey Jenny!” he said smiling. I shut the car door and buckled my seatbelt as he drove off.

“Hey Liam!” I said forcing a smile. Liam noticed because his smile fell.

“What’s wrong love?” he asked.

I shook my head. “It’s fine.” I said.

“No. What’s wrong?” he asked.

“Niall. He’s grumpy this morning.” he said. Liam nodded. “But it’s probably nothing.” I continued, brushing it off.

“Well…forget about Niall. Today…” he took one of my hands. “We are hanging out today. I have something all planned out for us!” he said smiling.

“What is it?” I asked, smiling now.

“You’ll see!” he said. He let go of my hand and I looked out the window, trying to think of something other than Niall’s reaction this morning.

Niall’s my best friend; nothing more. He would tell me what was wrong because we tell eachother everything. We always have, even though it might sting or be awkward sometimes. All I can picture is him pouting on the couch as I left with Liam. Did he want to spend the day with me today? I wasn’t sure…anyways, it’s too late now.

Liam pulled up to a restaurant and parked the car. “I thought we could have breakfast together and just get to know each other. Since I have only seen you a couple times and I think you are a really great person, I wanted to take this opportunity to get to know you better.” Liam said smiling. I smiled back and we both got out of the car, Liam leading me into the restaurant.

We spent the morning chatting over pancakes, eggs, bacon and coffee, just enjoying each other’s company. Liam and I actually have a few things in common. We both like Toy Story and Batman! Liam’s a really great guy…and friend. He didn’t act like had a crush on me at all! What was I thinking?! I had nothing to worry about.

Liam dropped me off in front of Niall’s flat and parked the car. “I had a really great time Liam. Thank you.” I said smiling.

“You’re very welcome.” Liam said smiling back. “If Niall’s still grumpy, and you wanna get out of the house, call me. Okay?”

“Sure. But I think he’ll be fine.” I said getting out. “Bye Liam!” I said shutting the door. He waved, and drove away. I watched his car for a moment, then headed up the stairs, turning the doorknob and stepping inside. All was quiet…that’s odd.

I shut the door and set my purse on the counter. Niall wasn’t in the living room, or the kitchen, so I went up to his bedroom and knocked. No answer so I entered…he wasn’t there either. I sighed and sat on his bed. His room was…really messy. I was just about to get up when he opened the door to his bathroom and walked in…with just a towel on.

He jumped. “Jenny!”

I turned around, my cheeks instantly red and hot. “I-I’m sorry Niall!” He started to walk over but I jumped up. “No! I don’t wanna look at you butt naked!”

“I have a towel on…” he said. I shook my head and ran out into the hallway.

“It doesn’t matter!” I yelled from the other side of the door. “I don’t wanna see you naked!”

“I’M NOT NAKED!” Niall squeaked. I heard him shuffle around on the other side of the door trying to find some clothes. I took a few deep breaths to try and calm my racing heart. Good lord…

I heard the doorknob turn and Niall opened the door silently, letting me in. I walked in and sat down in his bed next to him. He was wearing sweatpants and no shirt. I tried not to stare at his chest…but it was a little heard. I cleared my throat and began.

“Now Niall. Why were you so angry this morning?” I asked, folding my hands on my lap. He bit his lip and leaned against the headboard.

“It’s nothing.” he said, avoiding my gaze.

“It’s obviously something if you got mad about it.” he didn’t say anything. “Niall…you can tell me you know. We’re best friends. We tell each other everything right?”

He paused for a moment, sighed and looked up at me. “I guess I was jealous.” he said fiddling with his thumbs.

“Why?” I questioned.

“Because…because you’re my best friend and I haven’t had time to hang out with you very much. Liam’s been stealing you from me.” he mumbled.

I ran my fingers through my hair and laid down on my stomach on the bed so I was looking up into Niall’s eyes. “Then tell me you want to hang out with me. Truth be told…I miss hanging out with you too.” I said.

He looked so hopeful it made me smile. “Really?” he asked. I nodded.

“Well yeah! I mean, we haven’t really seen each other for what…years? I think it’s time we hung out. Just the two of us.” I said. He took my hand so fast it jumped me. And the fact that I felt something special when he grasped my hand.

“Then let’s make it happen.” he said smiling. “How about…this weekend? Saturday?” he asked. I nodded and smiled.

“Definitely.” Niall kissed my hand.

“Glad to have you back Jenny.” he whispered getting up off the bed.
