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?


23. Old Times

"You did what!?" Harry yelled marching over to Niall.

"Harry, were you outside my room listening on Niall and I's conversation?" I asked appalled.

I felt like my privacy was thinning out little by little.

"Of course not!," Harry scoffed, "I had to use the restroom and then I heard you yell "You raped me!" so I barged in and saw Niall."

I couldn't blame Harry for barging in. I would've done the same thing if I heard what he heard.

"Don't even try to blame this on me Harry. If you wouldn't have been with freakin' stupid Ariana, none of this wouldn't have happened! So if there is anyone to blame here it's you!" Niall stood up making his way toward Harry.

Both boys stared each other down, faces only inches apart. Waiting to see who would make the first move. I couldn't bare to see these two best friends fighting. Especially if I'm the cause of it.

"Niall, Harry stop yelling!" I yelled.

They both turned around shocked as if they forgot I was there, too lost in their stare down.

"You stay out of this Ski!" Harry raised his voice at me.

"Stay out of it?" I laughed bitterly, "I'm always in it! I'm always the cause when something goes wrong. Why do you think I left?"

Suddenly Jasmine along with Liam, Louis, and Zayn ran through the door. "What's going on in here?" they all asked in unison.

"Mr. drunk head over here tried, and did, rape Ski at the hotel!" Harry told the boys and Jasmine, not bothering to lower his voice.

"What?" Louis asked appalled, "Niall wouldn't do such a thing."

" I was drunk..." Niall admitted looking over at the boys, "I didn't mean too."

Louis, along with Jasmine, Zayn, and Liam gasped at Niall.

Harry laughed, not believing Niall's apology. "Yeah right. All you've ever wanted to do was have sex with Ski and now when you finally had the chance of her being vulnerable, you took it."

Niall opened his mouth but shut it.

"Niall wouldn't have even laid a hand on me if it weren't for you." I said getting up from the bed and pointing a finger at Harry. "If you wanted Ariana so bad why didn't you just tell me and we could've just broke things off before anyone got hurt and by anyone I mean me."

Harry sighed before walking toward me. He laid a hand on my shoulder but I shrugged it away.

"Look, when you walked in on me and Ariana, you didn't let me explain what happened--"

"Oh you mean how you and Ariana mysteriously ended up in the same bed with all your clothes off? Go ahead Harry explain to me how that happened. I would love to hear it!" I asked taking a seat on the bed.

I watched as the others sat around me. Jasmine sat on my left holding my hand, Zayn sat on the right to me with his arm around my shoulder with Liam beside him and Niall at the very end. He hasn't seemed to make direct eye contact with me since he admitted his feelings towards me.

Harry pulled a small plush chair from the corner and placed it in the middle of the room, in front of us. "Okay." He took a deep breathe and clasped his hands together, before starting.


'I was getting ready for bed and I heard a knock on the door. I thought it was you, Ski," Harry said nodding his head toward me, "I quickly ran to the door. Without thinking I wanted to surprise you so once I opened the door I kissed you-- or Ariana that is... She apparently liked it. I quickly apologized and tried getting her to leave but she kept pressing on. Eventually she had me pinned up against the wall." Harry's head was down by I could see him looking at me through his curls.

"Then she started to kiss me. I pushed her off and told her to stop but then she threatened me..."

"Threatened how?" I asked, curious yet scared of his response.

"She said she'll tell management about how you and I secretly dated and if management found out, I thought you would've got fired and I didn't want that to happen so I--"

"--So you slept with her?" Niall and I both said in unison.

I looked over at him and the corner of my mouth lifted into a smile but frowned as Niall quickly looked away, finding something interesting to look at on the floor .

"That's the only thing she wanted!," Harry protested, "I told her I'll only kiss her or even make out but she insisted on me sleeping with her. I really tried Ski."

Harry was now looking at me with pleading eyes. "Please Ski, give me another chance. If there was another way, I would've chosen it in a heart beat."

Everyone was now looking at me. Even Niall. Looking at Harry I knew exactly what to say.

"I can't give you another chance so you can cheat on me..." Harry's face turned pale and his breath caught in his throat.

"...But I will give you another chance to be my best friend like when we first met."

Harry looked up at me with a smile tugging on his lips.

"Atta girl!" Louis said clapping his hands.

"There's the Ski and Harry we know." Zayn chuckled rubbing my shoulder.

"So you love me right?" Jasmine said squeezing my hand. I nodded pulling her in for a hug. What would I do without her.

"Niall? Harry?" Liam asked looking at both of them.

Niall and Harry avoided each others eyes, staring at the ground or at the ceiling.

"I think you guys should be best friends again." I suggested standing up. "I can't bear to see you guys be angry at each other."

I walked over to Niall and lifted his chin up, "You know, I could really use a Horan hug right now."

Smiling slowly, Niall got up and squeezed me into a hug. I pulled my face away from his shoulder and kissed him on the cheek. "I love you Niall."

"I love you too Ski." he said giving me a loud and sloppy kiss on my forehead.

I looked over at Harry who was now standing up with his hands in his pockets, looking at the ground.

"You know, a Harry hug sounds pretty good too." I called out to him. "But I have no idea where I could get one."

I walked over to Harry with a goofy grin on my face, "Do you know where I could get a Harry hug, Mr. Styles?"

He chuckled before pulling me into a tight hug. Just as always, I wrapped my arms around his neck and his arms wrapped around my lower back but it didn't mean anything. Only that we were best friends again.

"Awwww!" Louis gushed, "Group hug!"

He ran over and jumped on us wrapping his arms, and his legs, around us. Liam then jumped onto Louis putting more pressure onto Harry and I. Jasmine came next to me and wrapped her left arm around me and her right on Louis' bum.

"Aye! Aye!," Louis squealed, " No touchy touchy back there!"

We all giggled when suddenly the pressure got heavier again. Zayn now has jumped onto the pile.

"Come on Niall, your turn." Harry boasted.

Niall shrugged leaving us to groan at him.

"Alright alright." he laughed before taking a step back.

"1.....2.....3!" he yelled before running and leaping onto the pile making it crash to the floor.

"Oof!" we all said as we fell.

"Why do you have to be so fat Niall?" I accused him.

He threw his head back and laughed.

"Crap!" Liam suddenly yelled.

"What's wrong Liam?" I asked worried.

We all just started to have fun. Was it about to be taken away from us again?

"Boys," he said looking toward them, "We have a concert tomorrow night in Madison Square Garden!"

The boys eyes shot open.

"Wait, what about North Carolina?" Jasmine asked.

"They canceled because the arena was under construction because of a storm." Louis answered.

"Poor fans!" I frowned.

"I know. I feel so bad for them." Harry agreed sitting down on the bed.

Suddenly an idea popped into my head. "Hey, I've got a great idea!"

They looked at me curiously waiting to hear my 'great idea'.

"How about we still go to North Carolina. We just go super early in the morning and have a concert outside somewhere and have a small meet or greet?"

The boys smiled. I'm guessing they liked my idea cause Liam quickly called Simon and explained my great idea. Simon loved it and said a plane would be ready for us at six in the morning.

"But where are we suppose to stay?" Zayn groaned. "I'm tired. It's like almost midnight."

"You could stay here!" Jasmine squealed.

The boys said no but Jasmine and I insisted. It would be like a giant sleepover but it wasn't quite like that. We ordered pizza but once we all ate, we crashed in our bedrooms. Brian got called into his work so he's spending a night at his friends leaving an open space in Jasmine's room. I crashed with her while Harry and Niall took the spare bedroom I was in. They insisted on ebing with each other so they could work things out. Zayn crashed on the floor in the living room. Literally. He was walking to the couch but didn't seem to make it. Louis and Liam took the two couches that were big enough for them.

"Some night huh?" Jasmine giggled getting shutting off the light on the table next to her bed.

Turning over so I could face her I said, "Yeah, but I couldn't thank you enough for what you did and I am so sorry I yelled at you."

She shrugged, "It's what I do."

It was silent for sometime before I whispered, "I'm just glad things are back where they belong."
