Amina's POV

I braced myself for god knows what exclamations I was going to face from my friends. I felt butterflies in my stomach as I grasped the door knob with my sweaty hands. I took a deep breath. “Let’s just get this over with” I thought to myself as I knocked lightly at the door. “Guys, it’s me, Ami!” Sure enough there were squeals from within.

As soon as the door opened, there was no greeting but instead a torrent of questions from my wild, crazy friends.

“Babe, where were you?!”

“You never come home this late!”

“Are you alright?!”

“We were worried sick about you!”

Lastly, Kay came forward with a worried expression on her face and stated “You have explaining to do girl!”

“Guys, calm yo’ farms! Jesus! It’s as if all of you are my mothers or something! I’m fine seriously, let me explain...” Aw gawd! As soon as I said those words, I felt like punching myself hard in the face. I could’ve just said some lame ordinary excuse and made the moment pass, but all my friends knew there was some serious gossip in store when I mentioned the word “explain”.  Kay was always the first to hear any dirt from me and only after her approval would I let the rest of the group in on anything. It was a two-way thing between Kay and I and so it was understandable when Kay gave me the raised eyebrow, inquisitive look as I began to put away my clutch and remove my jewellery.

I turned around from the dresser to face six very eager faces, awaiting my explanation. I couldn’t help but giggle at their stoned expressions.

“Ok, so I’m not going to beat around the bush guys, but this may come as a shock to you, well it did to me anyway... alright, so I don’t know how to say it... I uhm...”

“So much for not beating around the bush!” Mel exclaimed and the others laughed.

“Alright, you guys asked for it! One Direction are living here, in this very hotel in Mumbai and I just met up with Zayn at the local coffee shop and I hope you guys aren’t going to hate on me for not telling you earlier but I was shocked as well and I didn’t know how –“ The words came out in a rush before I could stop myself. I looked up to steal glances at my friends’ facial expressions and only had time to see Kay’s jaw drop before Paige cried out in surprise.

“WAIT WHAT?! STOP THE MUMBLING GAL! ONE DIRECTION IS HERE IN MUMBAI, INDIA?! ARE YOU INSANE?!” shouted Paige.

“YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING US!”

“ARE YOU FOR REAL?!”

“SHUT UP!”

“THIS IS SO NOT FUNNY AMI!”

I tried in desperation to speak over my friends but it was truly hard to yell over all of their exclamations. I was just tired and it was really getting to me. “GUYS! FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS, QUIT THE BLOODY SCREAMING! PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SLEEP NEXT DOOR; YOU DO REMEMBER WE’RE IN A HOTEL RIGHT?! AND YES I DID MEET ZAYN AND YES, I WAS EQUALLY SURPRISED AT 1D’S APPEARANCE BUT RIGHT NOW I AM JUST SO BLOODY EXHAUSTED FROM THE NIGHT AND WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU GUYS COULD JUST SHUT THE HELL UP AND LET ME GO TO BED. I CAN GIVE YOU THE DEETS TOMORROW MORNING. THANK YOU!”  That seemed to do the trick.

“Hypocritical much, Ami? Quit the screaming says you and there you are yelling your head off!” Mel was onto criticising me again, but I wasn’t taking it any longer. Right now, I just needed some sleep. It was a long night and I just needed to think straight for a little while. Sure I was in a dazzled mood, but not dazzled enough to realise that Kayla was missing from our hotel room.

“Kay! Where are you?!” I walked into the attached bathroom to search for her but she wasn’t there. There was only one other place she could be, the place that either of us went when we needed “alone time” and this moment seemed like the right time to want that privacy. I walked out of the hotel entrance to the front benches just before the automatic entrance doors. Sure enough, Kay was sitting there. She had her face buried in her hands and I could tell she was in deep thought. I stood awkwardly before approaching her, contemplating whether to arouse her from her pondering or wait a little bit longer. I decided on the first option since I needed to get some sleep as soon as possible.

I proceeded to walk up quietly to where she was sitting on the bench and placed a gentle hand on her left shoulder. “Kay, it’s me Ami. What’s wrong?”

“Go away! You know me well enough to know what’s wrong; quit the acting!” The truth is, I did have the slightest trace of idea of what the matter was. It was that I hadn’t told her first and the fact that I had met up with Zayn without her by my side. Okay, so I know how that sounds; we’re both really clingy friends right? But that was one of the traits that made us best friends as well, the fact that we cared about each other and loved each other so much.  The dagger of guilt started to pierce my heart as I realised that I hadn’t ever behaved this way to Kay before. I guess I couldn’t help it, the fact that One Direction just randomly turned up in India and I guess I was just overwhelmed when Zayn had asked me to have coffee with him... In all that time, there was just no time to tell anyone what had happened within that short time span.

I think I just stood there pondering away with a stoned expression on my face, because soon Kay was the one to speak up. “Well aren’t you going to say anything? Not even sorry?” I lifted my chin to look at her face properly. Tears smeared her eyeliner and her straightened hair was strewn messily across her face. We just had to stare at each other for a split second with that knowing look to acknowledge that things were still good between us.

I was the first to break the trance by letting out an uncertain laugh. “Sorry!” It was very bleak saying that word on its own and I couldn’t resist laughing further. I waited for Kay’s confirmation, but she whined playfully. “Fine! Sorry that I met Zayn without taking you along with me and sorry I didn’t break  1D’s appearance newsflash earlier to you! Will you forgive me babe?” I held her hand in mine and gave her the puppy dog eyes, and yep, sure enough, she bought it! She slapped me on my hand playfully and walked ahead of me back into the hotel.

“Wait! Before you complain any further about me not letting you in on anything else again, I have something else to tell you!” She stopped in her tracks and swivelled around slowly to face me.

“Go on” she challenged mockingly.

“ALL OF US ARE MEETING ONE DIRECTION ON FRIDAY, WHICH IS THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW! AAAAHHHHH!!” I cried out in delight.

“ARE YOU FOR REAL?! WOOOH!” She shouted back in equal excitement. “Tell me today’s full story you little brat!”

Ah well... I guess I did need to make up to what I did, so there goes my sleep that I so looked forward to...
