5. Boys



“I've fucked 50 billion bloody girls, they were so bloody fit, and bloody amazing in bed. My names Harry bloody Styles and I have poofy stupid curls and a stupid bloody accent, blah blah, bollocks, blah blah blah, I call the bathroom a loo, blah blah blah..” Lux mumbled to herself in a fake British accent, stabbing her eggs with a fork like she was murdering them.

“All right, lass?” She heard an accent say and dropped her fork, turning to look at who was creeping behind her. It was the other four members of One Direction, and the one that spoke was blond and smiling, his accent different than the others. Irish, she suspected.

“Ah, One Direction.” She smiled, turning around in her seat completely to reach her hand out to them. “I've been waiting for Harry to introduce me, but I suppose that's hopeless. I'm Lux.”

“I'm Niall, this is Liam, Louis, and Zayn.” He said, pointing them all out. She held my hand out and as each of them took it, they leaned in and kissed her cheek. A British thing, she assumed. Not a bad one.

“Light.” Zayn whispered, holding her hand in both of his palms, leaning down to kiss her next. His lips lingered on her cheek a second longer than the rest of the boys', which she didn't mind at all.

“Beautiful.” She grinned, biting down on her lip as he pulled back with his own smile.

“Hear you've been having some problems with our youngest.” Louis sat down on one side of her, Zayn moving to the other side quickly as Liam and Niall each sat next to them. She was, technically, in Harry's spot, right in the center. She quite liked it.

“Problems is an understatement. I don't know what it is about me that pushes his buttons, but I do and he does the same to me. I swear, we'll wind up strangling one another before this competition is through.” She sighed, looking around at the guys.

“I think he just wants to get in your pants.” Louis stated, “Or maybe he's got little butterfly type feelings for ya. He doesn't act this way round anybody else I know of.”

“Ha! Harry? Feelings? For a girl? Yeah, right. We can't stand each other. This is gonna be a disaster. I just don't get it because he seems to get along just fine with all the other contestants.” SHe whispered, chewing on her lip.

“I wouldn't worry about it. If you're chill with him, he'll be chill with you.” Liam said. “Harry's pretty cool, once ya get to know him.”

She smiled around at them, “You guys are really nice.”

“Oi! Get outta my seat, sweet cheeks.” Harry shouted from behind her, and she sighed heavily.

“Bite me, Styles.” She stated, chewing on a piece of toast and ignoring him.

“Let her be, Harry.” Niall said, and she looked over at him with an appreciative smile.

She felt breath on her neck for a split second, and before she could react, Harry bit down on the left side of her neck towards the back. She yelped, reaching up to smack his forehead.

“What is wrong with you?!” She asked, standing up and turning to face him.

“To be fair, you told me to.” He smirked, and Lux sighed heavily again, grabbing her plate and juice and moving to the far, far end of the table, as far from him as possible.

She gulped as she sat down, staring at her plate, fighting back tears. This was turning out to be a really lonely competition, and she was starting to wish they never got mentors. All her friends were busy learning from their mentors, and she was busy babysitting hers or trying not to stab him.

The chair next to her pulled out and she swiped at a stray tear on her cheek before turning to look. It was Liam. She smiled at him and he smiled back, taking a seat before beginning to speak.

“Harry can be a real child sometimes, love. He don't mean anything by it, it's just how he is. I'm sorry he's acting up so much around you. I guess you're right about you guys pushing each other's buttons.” He said reaching over to pat her back gently. She smiled lightly, nodding slowly.

“It's alright, I'm a big girl. I can handle a teenage boy.” She shrugged, grinning at him.

“Atta girl.” Liam ruffled her hair and she grunted, reaching up to fix it with a chuckle.

“So let's talk Zayn, Liam.” She said with a slow, sly smile. He laughed and shook his head.

“He's got a girlfriend. Although, I do think he likes you, or feels something toward you. His eyes kinda do that glitter thing when he sees you. You know what I mean.” Liam laughed and she smiled.

“Ah, I shouldn't be thinking about boys anyways. I have a competition to win.” Lux finished up her juice, standing slowly.

“Thanks for sitting with me, Liam. You're such a rebel.” She planted a firm kiss on his cheek, watching him smile at her before she walked over to the other end of the table.

“See you boys later.” She leaned down and returned the favor to each of them. She kissed Louis on the cheek, giggling when he made a loud kissing noise along with her, then she pressed her lips against Zayn's soft cheek, taking a second to stare at him before she moved away. She skipped past Harry and moved to Niall, kissing his cheek as well.

“Cheers, Lux.” He grinned, and she squeezed his shoulder before turning to walk away.

“Forgetting someone, love?” Harry called out, and Lux came to a slow stop, turning on her heel to face him. She could drop it, walk out, ignore him. Or she could give him a kiss on the cheek, shock him. Or she could punch him in his face like she wants to.

“How could I ever forget you, Harry? Why, you are God's gift to us lil women, aren't you?” She said in a fake southern accent, pressing her hand to her chest and batting her eyelashes.

“That's right, girly. Get your blond butt back here.” He replied, not turning to look at her, only pointing to his cheek and sticking it out slightly.

Lux clenched her fist, fully prepared to deck him across his smug face, when an idea popped into her head. Sh walked up to him slowly, bending at the waist until her lips were next to his cheek. His eyes were closed, his lips pressed together in what looked like a pout, waiting for his kiss. She giggled softly, leaning in and pressing her teeth to his cheek, biting down onto his flesh.

“Fuck! Bloody hell, woman!” He screeched, standing up. She laughed, turning away from him while he cursed at her, nursing his red cheek. “You're gonna pay for that, Lux!”

“Oh, please do punish me.” She purred, glancing at him over her shoulder. She was as surprised that she said that as Harry clearly was, but it sure did throw him off his game.

Lux laughed in victory, turning and walking away from him and his flushed face.
