Maturity is a Choice

{Sequel to Age Is Just A Number}

It's been two and a half years since Ski became One Direction's photographer and Harry's new girlfriend. She's now seventeen, turning eighteen and she can now tell the press her and Harry are dating once eighteen. Also, the boys are going on tour in America and the boys and Ski are very excited but what happens when Ski gets jealous about all the girls Harry keeps hanging with, and Niall starts drinking to hide his feelings, and when Zayn finds a girlfriend that only wants his fame and money? Why don't you read to find out?


12. "Enough is Enough"


"She's lying!" Autumn screamed

Zayn looked between Autumn and I, scratching his temple.

"Zayn, come on. It's obvious she only wants you for your money."

It hurts me to tell the truth to Zayn. Seeing his hurtful face just brings me to tears. The boys are here because I knew Louis would back me up. He never liked her, now he definitely hates her.

"Look mate, I think Ski is telling the truth." Louis buts in. Thank goodness for the superman.

"I, errr..."

I couldn't actually believe what I was seeing none the less of what I was hearing. Zayn didn't know who to believe, me or Autumn. Did he really have to THINK about this?

"Why don't you believe me Zayn?" He looked at me then back at Autumn.

He doesn't know who to choose. HIs best friend whose like a sister to him that has been with him for almost three years straight or his girlfriend he's fallen deeply in love with.

"When did you hear her say this again?" Zayn asks me.

"Yesterday when I went to retrieve my 1d shirt from her." I recall.

I was going to tell him and the boys that night but they got caught up in rehearsal and meet and greets so I decided to wait till the following morning.

"And what exactly did she say?"

"That she was using you for only fame and money. She doesn't even love you for you Zayn." I explained. I am seriously tired of this chick replacing my trust.

"You know what, whatever," I reached over and grabbed my phone and keys from coffee table, "go ahead and live with your precious little princess Zayn cause in the end when she really does only love you for your money, don't even think about coming to me." I spat. I knew the words I just said hit him hard but I really didn't care at the moment. If he was going to choose a girl he knew for almost one month over a girl who he knew for three years then screw him AND his girlfriend.

Slamming the door, I ran back to my room. I needed to get my anger out and even though smashing glass against the walls and getting cuts sounds like so much fun I rather go out for a walk.

"Ski, let me in!"

"Go away Niall!" I screamed. I was in no mood to talk to anyone. Especially a boy.

I grabbed my jacket, purse, keys, and phone before opening my hotel door. Niall seemed relieved that I came out to see him but frowned when I walked past him.

"Ski, talk to me." He fell into step behind me.

"I don't want to talk about it right now, Niall." I could feel my eyes stinging and burning from the tears that were about to fall. Curse my dumb sensitive self.

"Then let me talk to you instead."

I stopped my fast walking and turned around. Niall was out of breath and was extremely red from trying to keep up.

"Let's go for a walk. And when I mean walk I actually mean slow walking." A small smile curved on my face as he led me into the elevator.


"I know how you feel,"

Niall and I were both walking through a park licking vanilla ice cream. He always knew my weakness for soft ice cream.

"No you don't Niall." I reply.

"Yeah I kinda do. Feeling lonely, feelings lost and rejected by someone to love . . ." His voice trailed off.

It didn't click until after a moment of realization, "Oh my gosh Niall I'm so sorry. Is that how I make you feel everytime? Rejected?" I now felt the pain of guilt form in the pit of my stomach.

"It's okay you don't have to apologize. I have my ways of getting over my feelings."

My stomach hurt as the first thought that popped into my head. I don't know if it was the right time or not but I had to ask him. I had to get this out of my head.

"You mean like drinking?" Niall stopped in his tracks and looked at me. Fear in his eyes.

"Yeah . . . that's one of the ways . . "

"You mean thats your only way." I didn't mean for my voice to rise, it just happened. "Niall, you shouldn't be drinking in the first place. It's bad for you and it can turn people into monsters."

He kept his head down as we continued to walk. Silence filled the air as we headed down the road toward the hotel.

"Promise me that you'll stop drinking." I finally speak after minutes of silence.

"Ski it's not that easy." Niall huffed.

"Fine. Just promise me that you won't hurt me." I say. Niall looked at me wide-eyed as if I said that I was pregnant. He suddenly came over and embraced me in a tight hug.

"Ski, I will never hurt you. EVER. Never in a million years." He says into my neck. His warm breath made me feel safe. I never felt this way since forever.

He let go and reached for my hand. I let him take it and lead us back to the hotel. When we reached my hotel room he said goodnight, kissing me lightly on the cheek. I know I couldn't reject him when he asked for permission. Mostly because of two reasons. One, I didn't want him to feel lost and rejected. Two, I wanted him to.

I was sad when he left to his room. Instead of him being next door, he was more down the hall by Zayn's room. Liam's room was next to mine and all I hear is Toy Story playing over and over again. Sometimes I would sit by the wall with popcorn and just listen. Liam found me one time and asked me to come over and watch it with him. He is such a goofball and cries at the end. He says 'my eyes are just tired' but I know he's actually crying.

Knock Knock

I quickly finished changing into my pajamas before opening the door.

"What do you want Zayn." I sighed. I hoped for Niall to come back asking for another kiss but I was wrong.

"I came to apologize . . ." He kept his head down and scratched his eyes. Something's wrong.

"So you dumped her?"

"Well, no . . ." Bingo. That's why he wouldn't make eye contact.

"Then I don't even know why you're apologizing." I tried slamming the door for dramatic effect but Zayn's foot slid in and stopped the door.

"Ski love, just hear me out." Zayn's eyes met mine. They were comepletely blank. Nothing worth arguing for but enough just to listen.

"Fine, you got five minutes."

"I didn't know who to choose because I really do love Autumn, I think she's the one and- and I didn't believe you because I didn't want it to be true."

It really did hurt my heart to see Zayn beg for my forgiveness. No, that's a lie. It hurt my heart to see that he's in love with that cold hearted monster.

"I'm sorry Zayn too. I'm sorry that you're just going to have to learn your lesson." This time I made sure his foot wasn't stuck before slamming the door.

I know what I'm doing is rude but all that has happened today, I don't seem to give a crap.

"I'm carefree." I recite Niall's line and smile at the thought of him.

          Meet in my room at exactly 7:00 am sharp. The boys want to have a breakfast before we move on to the next state. It would be my privelage to walk with you. :) xx


Oh I love his goodmorning texts. I probably get two of them every morning. One to wake me up and one to make sure I'm up. Such a cutie.

Considering I took a shower last night before bed, I decided to skip it this morning. I curled my hair and put a red bow in the middle. It was going to be hot today so I needed a good outfit. I decided on short shorts with a tank top that read I <3 NYC. I put on a snapback that had the same design and red toms. To complete my outfit I slid on my favourite RayBands. I have to admit, I look cute.

I met Niall outside his door at exactly 7:01. I always have to be fashionably late.

"Shall we?" Niall held out his elbow like a gentlemen.

"We shall." I took it and we both skipped down the hallway to the elevator laughing.


"Where exactly are we going?" I asked as Niall got us a taxi. We hopped in and Niall told the driver some address I have never heard of.

"One of Harry's friend's friend is out of town and has an amazing crib. We're going to have breakfast there and hang out before we meet Paul back the hotel and leave with the tour bus."

I nodded trying to take in all the information I just recieved. As long as Autumn won't be there I'm fine.

. . .

"I hate you." I whisper through my teeth at Niall. He chokes on his orange juice trying to hold back his laughter as he follows my gaze to a laughing Autumn and Zayn.

"She is just so fake!" I throw my hands up in the air for effect.

"Calm down tiger." he laughs as he takes another sip of orange juice.

"Where's Harry?" I haven't noticed till now that I haven't seen him in awhile.

"Oh who knows? Management needed him for something and now he only shows up for concerts but when he does, he acts weird." Niall explains.

"Breakfast is almost ready!" Louis calls out. He comes around the counter and over to Niall and I. He was wearing a striped apron and chef hat. Both Niall and I burst out laughing at his ridiculous costume.

"Okay now you look more worse than Autumn." I laugh.

"Watch your voice Ski." Liam comes over and whispers in my ear.

I follow his gaze to see Autumn furious. I couldn't help but laugh. She looked like a gorilla with her face scrunched up like that. I sent her a small smile and a wave before returning back to my table.

"Watch your mouth Ski." I looked over to see Autumn standing up. Zayn got up too and held her from walking towards me. Is that the best she could 'watch your mouth Ski?' Wow she's pathetic.

"Hey Zayn you might want to keep a leash on that dog of yours." I call out. He frowns as he tightens his grip on a furious Autumn. The boys do a chorus of 'ooo's and I almost laugh. Louis comes over and high fives me before he and Liam return to the kitchen.

"So I'm guessing you and Zayn didn't make up yet?" Bringing up the subject of Zayn made me frown.

"Nope, but I don't want to talk about it . . ." I look at my hands in my lap as my voice trails off.

"Breakfast is served!"

I hop off the barstool and run to find a seat in the dining area. Niall sat next to me and Louis sat on the opposite side. Across from me was Liam, Autumn, and Zayn. Well this should be fun.

"The food is . . .!" I tried to come up with a word that wouldn't hurt the boys feelings but to tell them that this tasted like a gym sock on a sunny day mixed with ketchup.

"Disgusting." Niall finishes off.

"Oh, I don't like it." Autumn calls out with a frown. Zayn puts a hand on her shoulder with a weak smile.

"Well that makes two things in this room that nobody likes." I mumbled under my breath.

"Excuse me?" Autumn looks dead at me with a furrowed brow.

"Oh you're excused." I smile. I know my smile just makes her want to rip my skin off alive.

She drops her fork on the table making it clang against the glass plate. Slowly she stands up, not taking her gaze off of me.

"That's it, come on Zayn we're leaving." She grabbed Zayn's forearm and started dragging him down the hall but I wasn't finished with her. I got up and blocked their path from the front door.

"Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea."

Autumn lets go of Zayn and walks over toward me. The boys are on the feet now watching from a safe distance away.

"You're just mad that Zayn loves me more than you!" She yells. Zayns eyes go wide and he opens his mouth to speak but shuts it afterwards.

I stare at him in disbelief. "Zayn, aren't you going to say something?" I whisper. He looks down and doesn't meet eye contact with anyone.

"Ha! It's true! Zayn loves me more than you!" Autumn chants.

I couldn't really help myself. Enough was Enough.

"OMG Shut up! Just shut up!" I scream. Autumn didn't stop though she kept on saying 'Zayn loves me more than you'

"Autumn shut up before I freaking make you!" I know it wasn't my best comeback but it was the only one I could think off. I didn't even know I walked closer to her. We were now face to face. Only inches apart.

"What? Are you going to go get your little alcoholic boyfriend and make me?" I nudges her head at Niall and I literally burst.

Without thinking my fist swung around and collided with her jaw. Her hand went to cheek in shock. "You little Bit-!" I tackled her to the ground before she could say another word. I told her I was going to make her shut up.

Now were on the ground punching each other. I throw a few random punches but only succeded with one. She then threw a punch making me fall to the ground beside her. She switches weight and is now on top of me punching me. This is not me. I could not let this girl beat me up. Especially not after what she just said and how she's controlling Zayn.

With all my strength I reverse the situation. I'm now on top of her punching her. I landed on her eye, nose, then cheek. I'm going to make her remember to never mess with me or my friends. I take one last good punch to the face before I feel two strong arms lift me up away from the bleeding Autumn.

"Don't you ever talk about my friends that way!" I scream at her. Louis is behind me pulling my arms back around my lower back. Liam and Zayn are helping up Autumn and Niall is in front of me trying to call me down.

"Good job babe. Finally someone shut her up." Louis whispers in ear making me smile. I instantly regret it as I taste blood and my mouth is in pain.

"Get her out of here, Zayn," Zayn looks up at Niall from Autumn and stares at him like a lost puppy with fear in his eyes, "Now!" Zayn and Liam help Autumn up and out of the house.

"Now are you going to tell me what the heck that was for?" Niall asked between laughs and breaths.

"Enough was enough."
