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?


25. "I love you, all of you."

"So this one or this one?" Jasmine held up two dresses that looked exactly the same.

It was Jasmine's 19th birthday and her party started in two hours. 10 o'clock. We haven't even got dressed, yet alone do our hair and make-up.

"They look the same to me." I shrugged not looking back up from my phone.

"And who are you texting Ms. Thang?" she asked jutting out her hip.

I looked up not being able to hide my smile, "I'm texting Louis."

Her eyes widen, "First Harry, then Niall, and now Louis?"

"Well, I mean he is cute..." I winked at her.

"Ski don't you dar--"

"Oh lighten up Jasmine, I'm just kidding." I laughed causing her to breathe out in relief.

"Anyways, what's he saying?" she asked as she held up one of the dress to her body and examined herself in the mirror.

"He texted me saying Niall and Harry are fighting over who's going to walk with me."

She rolled her eyes before throwing both dresses into a pile. "Ski, can you please stop texting Louis and help me here." she whined.

Sighing, I texted Louis that I'll text him later. and got up to help Jasmine. I looked through her walk in closet that was so huge to find her a nice dress. I grabbed the best two that I liked and held it out to her. One was a emerald green dress that was high-low and the other one was a long red satin dress. I held it out to her and she smiled.

"I love the red one!  It would look great on me while the green one, " she grabbed it and held it up in front of me, "would look sexy on you."

Eyes wide, I laughed, "You must be joking, right?"

Jasmine shook her head before throwing the green dress at me, "Put it on."

Mumbling I slipped off my Hollister shorts and top before slipping the tight dress on. I could barely breathe in this thing. I don't know how I could even last a minute in this thing let alone five hours.

"Uh...Jasmine. It's kinda tight." I asked in between breaths.

"Oh don't be silly. It definitely shows your curves and," she quickly slaps my bum, "makes your bum look huge." her eye brows shot up.

"I'm not going to impress anyone so I don't see the point." I shrugged.

Jasmine led me to her bed and we both sat down. "You may be single but that doesn't mean you can't look hot right?"

She was right. Just because I wasn't dating Harry or Niall doesn't mean I can't be there friend AND flirt... Just a little....

"Now come on, let's do our make-up." she started making way toward her vanity with all her make-up supplies.

"What about Brian? Isn't he suppose to be here right now?" I asked following her.

"Sit. And no, they're keeping him an extra hour so he'll be late to the party but it's fine with me." she picked out a few powders before applying them to my face.

"Can you do it the way Cynthia did and my hair, the day of my first 'modeling career'." I bent my pointer and middle finger for quotations.

She nodded before applying my eye-makeup.


"Come on Jasmine! We're going to be late! The boys won't go in without us!"

"I'm coming, I'm coming." she said as she raced down the stairs.

"Is the limo here yet?" she asked while grabbing her phone.

"Yes, now come on!"

I opened the door just in time as she ran through the front door. Rolling my eyes, I locked the door and ran after into the limo.


"We're here ladies." the driver announced as he opened our doors for us.

We were immediately blinded by flashing lights and screaming people. Jasmine was the first to get out already showing her dazzling white teeth. Then it was my turn. I stepped out and put on my best smile.

"Ski! Ski! Over here!" a lady dressed in a short red dress called to me.

I didn't know what else to do since Jasmine was talking to another lady wearing a crème colored ball gown.

"Hello." I greeted her

"It's so lovely to meet you Ski. My name is Alison Argent with E News and I'll just like to ask you a few questions?" she asked shoving a microphone in my face.

"Sure go ahead."

"Are you currently dating Harry Styles at the moment?" she asked.

"No I am not. Isn't he dating Ariana?"

"Oh honey, you didn't know? He publicly broke up with her only a few hours ago." she laughed.

Eyes wide open, I said, "Oh. I didn't know that."

"Well it was big news. Anyways, what about this Niall Horan? He seems to have the hots for you on a webcam you guys had a month ago."

"Um, him and I are just really close friends as of Harry and the rest of the guys. There isn't much going on."

She gave a look as if I was lying, "So then tell me why you left the boys then."

I opened my mouth but then quickly shut it. I didn't how to answer it. I didn't want to lie in the public but I didn't want expose what went on between me and the boys the past few weeks.

"And that seems to be all we have. I'm Alison Argent with E News. Goodnight." she smiled into the camera before clicking off.

"I know something is going on between you guys and I will find out." she looked me up and down before scurrying away with her cameraman.

"Hey Ski! Over here." I looked over, assuming it was another reporter, but it was Jasmine waving me over.

Squeezing through crowds of people, I've made my way over to her. As I got closer I see she wasn't alone. I thought it was Brian but it wasn't just one person. There was five. A huge grin appeared on my face and my speed increased with my heart. Then I saw it. Curly hair. Blonde hair. Black hair. Brown shaved head. And lastly a brown quaffed hair.

"Ski!" they all yelled in unison.

All at once they jumped onto to me, pulling us into a big group hug. I could see cameras aiming at our direction but none of us seemed to care. Even Jasmine who became apart of the hug after Zayn pulled her through. We held on  for awhile not wanting to let go.

"I miss this." Louis suddenly spoke. His voice sounded hoarse as if he was about to cry.

"Me too." Liam said sniffling.

Harry, Zayn, and Niall nodded along. Niall sniffed a few times while Harry wiped his face.

"Please don't cry guys. You're gonna make me cry." I could already feel my eyes start to burn and my lip quiver.

"I...can'" Louis heaved.

That's it. I couldn't hold it in anymore. I loved these boys with all my heart and I can't let them go again. I held on tighter. Louis was beside me and I could feel his tears in my shoulder. 'hey there Louis' I thought. I leaned over and lightly kissed him on the cheek. He looked over and smiled at me, kissing my wet cheek in return.

Continuing I leaned over and kissed Zayn on the cheek which caused him smile. One that I haven't seen in so long that it made a few more tears roll down. I wish he could've let me love him when I could've. I then leaned over to Liam and kissed him who returned the favor also. Looking into his eyes, I could see the tears about to fall. Seeing that could make me cry a river.

Looking over at Harry, I smiled. He returned one as a tear rolled down his cheek. I leaned over and gave him a kiss, one longer than the others, on the cheek. He smiled again revealing his dimples. Isn't he lovely?

Looking lastly at Niall, I completely broke down. His eyes were bloodshot red and his face was streaked with tears. He kept heaving, trying to control himself but he just couldn't. So sick of watching cry I leaned over and kissed him on the cheek just like Harry, lingering there for a few extra milliseconds.

"I love you, all of you." I smiled through my sniffles.

They all looked at me giving me the chance to take in their every appearance. They are just so beautiful. How was I able to be blessed with such amazing boys?

"Excuse me, Miss Jasmine." a man dressed in a waitress uniform approached our circle. Jasmine had stepped out of it giving us a little privacy.

"Shush! Can't you see they're having a moment?" she half whispered, half yelled while wiping her eyes.

He looked over at us and mouthed 'I'm terribly sorry' before hustling away. I giggled at Jasmine. She really is my best friend.

"Okay guys, let's have the best night of our lives. Let's get drunk and have a good time." I announced breaking up the huddle.

"But not too much." Niall said with a sly smile.

Smiling I said, "Let's just have fun, together. Okay?"

They all nodded before wiping at their teary-eyed faces.

"Oh you guys are all sissies! Crying like that." Louis yelled.

The boys stared at him with their eye brows raised. "You were the one that cried the most!" Liam protested.

"Me? Of course not! I'm a man! Men don't cry!" and with that he took off toward the party.

"Wait, Louis! Paul told me to watch over you!" Liam yelled chasing after him.

"Maybe you were right, Louis is cute." Jasmine whispered coming over next to me.

I looked over and smiled at her.

"What?" she asked worriedly, "Is there something on my face?"

Still smiling plus giggling I said, "Nope, just glad your my best friend. Thank you." I reached over and we embraced each other in a bear hug. "Happy birthday beautiful." I muffled into her hair.

She thanked me before Zayn came over. "It would be my honor if I would be the one to escort you in my beautiful birthday lady."

Jasmine looked over at me and smiled, giving me a slight wink. I waved as he took her arm in his and walked away toward the party.

"So Ski, it would be my honor if we could be the one to escort you in our beautiful non birthday lady." Niall and Harry approached, mocking Zayn's tone.

I threw my head back laughing. When I controlled myself I curtsied, "Oh I would love to." I said in a british accent.

"We'll definitely work on that." Harry chuckled.

He took my left arm while Niall took my right. All three of us strolled into the party ready for the night of our lives. And that's exactly what it was. We ate, we drank, and we danced all night to the best song ever.
