4. Chapter 3

 

"Hey, Ava!" I heard Liam call from downstairs. I groaned a little. I was in the middle of a really good book. It's called The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. (A/n: If you have not read The Hunger Games series,  I suggest you do. It is so much better than the movie. :) ) I book marked my page and went to see what Liam wanted. 

"This better be good, I was in the middle of a really good book!" I complained as I made my way to the living room. 

"Well what else is new?" He said sarcastically. He was sitting on the couch along with the rest of the boys. Funny. I didn't even hear them come in. The first pair of eyes I met was Louis's. He gave me a small but noticeable smile. I couldn't help but smile back. I bit my bottom lip out of nerves. His smile just made my stomach churn. I was starting to get all these butterfly feelings that I didn't want. That I couldn't want, even if I did. My dad taught me there is no such thing as love when he killed my mom and ran out. 

But this.... why was I feeling this way when I didn't think I could ever like someone? 

I couldn't help it. It was just the way his eyes sparkle or the way his smile makes me happy. I can talk to him. Our lunch together earlier was probably the best time of my life. Literally. 

Maybe I'm wrong about love or even a simple crush. 

"Ava?" Liam said making me jump out of my thoughts. 

"Oh, sorry what?" I said not having a clue if he said anything or not. 

"I asked if you wanted to go to the beach with us." 

I looked at Louis and he was nodding his head. I know he's trying to help me and I would like to spend more time with him but...the beach? I don't know... 

Truth is, I'm terrified of beaches. The only 'family' vacation we went on was to the beach when I was 7 and I almost drowned from a wave that tumbled on top of me and to top things off, I was attacked by a seagull. I've been afraid of beaches and birds since. 

"Uh..I don't know.." I said looking at the ground. Part of me wanted to go but another part didn't. Not just because I was afraid of the beach but I was afraid to get close to the group. But I'm slowly working on that. 

"Please, Ava. It wouldn't be as fun without you." Niall said. I loved the way Niall talked. I liked his accent. I wanted to get closer to him because of that but.. you know. I'm a big chicken and won't open myself up to new people. 

"Sorry guys, I don't think-" 

"Ava, can I talk to you? In the kitchen?"  Louis interrupted me before I finished. I hesitated but then agreed. He started off for the kitchen and I looked at Liam. He was practically giving Louis death glares. Ouch. Poor Louis. Nothing was going on between us, they weren't right? 

"As your...friend, I think you should come with us. Not just for your benefit but for Liam's too." He said sounding careful to choose the word as to what to consider me as to him. He played things safe by calling me friend. 

"I don't know, Lou. I would like to but.." I said trailing off. 

"But what? But nothing. Come with us, please?" He said grabbing my hand. 

I felt them. I felt the sparks that everybody talks about. I read about them all the time. My heart race picked up and I thought it might burst out of my chest. 

I watched as he slowly caressed the top of my hand with his thumb. I felt that with every movement of his thumb I would feel more safe each time. It was just something about him that made me feel comfortable and safe. This could not be happening. Not to me. This doesn't happen to me. 

My gaze went from his hands to eyes. Those bright blue eyes make my heart melt each time I look at them. 

"So what do you say?" He asked breaking the long silence. I nodded my head and smiled."Yes!" He quietly cheered like he won something. I playfully rolled my eyes and left him cheering on the kitchen. 

"I'll go with you guys." I said to everybody and they all cheered. Except Liam, he just gave me a questioning look. 

"What?" I asked and he just shrugged his shoulders. Something was up with him. I'm gonna make sure I find out. 

"Great! We leave in an hour." Niall said. 

That left me with an hour to get ready. I smiled and ran upstairs.  I knew I wasn't going in the water so I didn't have to bother with a swim suit. I found a dark blue sundress and decided to wear that. It was strapless and went down to my knees. I knew the ocean breeze would have a great affect on it.  I found some blue flats to match it. I think I was obsessed with wearing flats. I love them. 

Next was my hair. I didn't want to just throw it up into a bun like I normally would have. I decided on scrunching it and pulling my bangs back with a blue sparkly headband. 

With my makeup, I just put on a light layer of foundation to get rid of the redness and I put on some mascara to bring out my eyes. When I was finally finished and somewhat satisfied with my appearance, I checked the time. I had fifteen minutes left. I packed my beach towel that Liam had bought me but never used, into a bag along with my sunglasses, phone, and my book, in case I had time to read it before it got dark. For some reason these guys insisted on going to the beach when it was almost night fall. 

I skipped on downstairs to find all the boys ready to leave. I love how I took the longest and made them wait. "You ready?" Liam asked and I nodded. With that we were off! 

The whole entire time we spent in the car, Liam would give looks between Louis and I. They weren't pleasant. Louis was driving and Liam sat next to him. I sat behind Louis with Niall to my right side. Harry and Zayn sat in the very back of the van. 

When Liam looked back at me again, I mouthed 'Stop it". He looked at me confused and I rolled my eyes. I used my index finger and pointed to me and Lou but only to where he could see. How they other boys didn't notice? I don't know. But I mouthed 'Nothing's going on." He raised one eye brow at me and then turned back to face the road. 

I wish he would just stop with the nonsense. 

But was there really nothing going on...? 

We finally arrived at the beach and I swear I got trampled. The boys hopped at of the van and sprinted towards the beach. Except Zayn. He stayed back with me 


"Aren't you going with them?" I said slinging my bag over my shoulder. He looked at me for a moment but then back towards the water. 

"No. I don't have a desire to get in the water. I'll think I'll just walk with you." He said. 

I smiled. Not really sure what for though. I've not had a conversation with Zayn but this one is going pretty well, so far. "Yeah, I don't like water either. Terrible experiences." I said and he looked at me confused. "Long story..." I mumbled. Even though it really wasn't.  He just shrugged it off. 

We finally got to the beach and Harry had Lou pinned on the ground, Niall was running in the water occasionally falling on his face every now and then and then you had Liam who is just watching it all happen. 

"Loosen up a bit." I said approaching him from behind. He jumped a little bit. Obviously he didn't acknowledge my presence.

"I guess I should be telling you the same thing." He said sticking his hands in his jean pockets and looking out towards the water. I watched the waves form and crash back down. It gave me shivers thinking about the past when the wave almost drowned me. 

"I'm getting better." I finally said. I saw him smile out of the corner of my eyes. 

"You're getting there." He wrapped me in a hug. I always liked his hugs. He felt like a real brother to me. I will always love him and his family for taking me in. 

 "Guys! It's gonna be dark soon, we should probably get a fire started." Louis said. We all agreed. I sat back and watched has Harry, Louis, and Liam argue over how to get a good fire started. How many boys does it take to start a fire? At this rate, it's gonna take all five. 

About 10 minutes of endless arguing and experimenting, they finally got a fire started. "FINALLY!" I screamed and started getting closer to the fire. By now it was dark, and the cool ocean breeze was making me freeze! (hee hee that rhymed) I did only have that dress on. I didn't even think about bringing a blanket. 

"Are you that cold?" Harry said. 

"Y-yes!" I said in between shivers. I got cold easily. 

"Ya shoulda brought a blanket!" Niall sang while he strummed a few chords on his guitar. I didn't even see him bring a guitar! What is up with this? I think these boys are magic. 

"Well thank you, Captain Obvious." I rolled my eyes. He laughed. 

"Maybe.." Louis said standing up. "If you'd walk around a bit you'd get warm. Come on, let's go." He stuck his hand out to help me off the ground. I looked at Liam who was staring at the fire. Obviously fury covered his face. Was he mad at me or Louis? Was this what he was talking about it the car? I just wont go with him. 

But without even realizing it, I had taken his hand and he was pulling me off the ground. He looked down at me and smiled as I stabled myself. I smiled at him back although it was a nervous smile. And we started walking off down the beach. 

He was right, I was warmer. But every now and then I would feel his hand brush up against mine as we walked in silence and each time I would get a shiver down my spine. My heart would start to race faster and I got that butterfly feeling again. I could tell he wanted to hold my hand. The strange thing is, I wanted to hold his hand too. But I won't work up the nerve to do that. 

Just as I thought he was about to brush his hand against mine again, he stopped for a second, and then ended up holding my hand all together. I think I stopped breathing. Louis was holding my hand. What? No. This cannot be happening. Why am I feeling this way? I told myself NO guys. 

I looked Louis in what I could see of his eyes and he smiled. I didn't smile back. Instead, I let go of his hand and stopped walking. He stopped a step ahead of me and turned to face me. "Are you okay? Was that to much? I'm sorry. I won't do it again." He apologized. 

I figured that if I won't hold his hand then I should at least tell him why... Even if that meant spilling my guts about EVERYTHING that happened last year. Some of it, even Liam doesn't know. He only knows what he saw, he doesn't even know the half of it. He was just the poor boy from the bed&breakfast that witnessed the end of it. And I mean, the only end of it. 

"Louis... I can trust you right?" I asked. 

"Of course." He said taking a step closer to me. 

 "I'm about to tell you the reason why I am so scared. Promise me, you won't say anything to the others. I will tell them when I'm ready." I said. 

"Of course, Ava. I promise." 

"Not even Liam." 

"But doesn't he-" 

"He only knows the end." I said cutting him off. I took a deep breath. "Promise you won't say anything?" I asked again. 

"I promise."
