Little Talks

"I don't like walking around this old and empty house."

"Are you sure about this Zayn?" I asked with my hands grasping over the railing, wind blowing through my hair. "Don't worry." He tells me. "I'm nervous as much as you. But these little talks don't last long."
My summer was basically ruined thanks to my mother. After high school graduation, she forced me to work on the cruiseline she owns instead of giving me a choice if I want to like my older sister. But the first day of the cruise, the first day I saw them being complete dumbos. That day I didn't know that I would love one of them. Zayn was right, these little talks don't last long.

7. A familiar song

After about ten minutes of them trying to clear out their throats, they finally finish. Just as their about to sing so I can prove that they're a boy band, Zayn asks me, "Do you play guitar?"

I look up from my almost finished ice cream and answer, "I play a little bit. Why?"

"Do you think you can play 'Little Things' for us while we sing?" Niall asks. They have a song called Little Things? That sounds strangely familiar, I think I heard it from somewhere.

"I'll give it a try. But I don't have my guitar with me." I reply.

"Oh, don't worry. I have mine with me. You can use it if you want." He says pulling out a six-string guitar and handing it to me. It looks like the one that I have in my cabin. Wait, I FRICKING FORGOT IT AT HOME! Oh, great. Just great. "It's already tuned, so you don't have to worry about that."

"Thanks. But do you happen to have any music sheets on you? I don't know this song, but it sounds dang familiar." I ask.

"A good singer always comes prepared. I knew that we were going to need these!" Louis cheers pulling out sheet music and setting them in front of me. I study the music, fix the hair that was blowing into my face, and began strumming a tune that I've heard.

Now I remember! I have played this before! If only I can remember the notes. After eight bars of playing, they finally start to sing.

First Zayn:
"Your hands fit in mine like it's made just for me,
But bear this in mind, it was meant to be.
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me."

Now Liam:
"I know you never loved the crinkles by your eyes
When you smile you never loved your stomach or your thighs.
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I'll love them endlessly."

Zayn and Liam:
"I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth.
But if I do, it's you (oh, it's you) they add up to.
I'm in love with you, and all these little things."

Louis:
"You can't go to bed without a cup of tea.
And maybe that's the reason that you talk in your sleep.
And all those conversations are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me."

Harry:
"I know you've never loved the sound of your voice on tape.
You never want to know how much you weight.
You still have to squeeze into your jeans
But you're perfect to me."

Harry and Niall together:
"I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth.
But if it's true, it's you. It's you they add up to.
I'm in love with you, and all these little things."

Niall:
"You'll never love yourself half as much as I love you.
And you'll never treat yourself right, darling. But I want you to.
If I let you know, I'm here for you.
Maybe you'll love yourself like I love you, oh."

Back to Harry:
"And I've just let these little things slip out of my mouth.
'Cuz it's you. It's you. It's you they add up to.
And I'm in love with you, and all these little things."

Now everyone:
"I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth.
But if it's true, it's you. It's you they add up to.
I'm in love with you,
And all your little things."

They end the song, and I sit there in awe.

"That was awesome!" I exclaim. "I swear I've heard that song before somewhere, but I just don't know."

"Well, we couldn't have done it without your extrodinary guitar playing." Harry compliments. "Or, as I should say, extrodinharry."

"What?"

"Forget it." He says. He's silent for a minute, and then his face lightens up.

"Oh, no. Harry." Liam states. "I know what your thinking!"

"Brit! Can we call you Brit? Because it makes things easier." Harry asks.

"Everyone techincally calls me Brit, so yeah. What do you want?"

"Do you have any more of those lobby suitcase carts things?"

I point over to the lobby area and they run off. Eveyone except with one person left.

Who was that one person?

Zayn.

 

A/N: I'm on Spring Break people! But I have a Science Test when I get back =(

I wish I was in England or Italy or Florida or even Virginia instead of Ohio for Spring Break! I just hate the weather here.

INSIDE YOUR MIND! (It's a band joke. Has anyone heard or saw The Phantom of the Opera? We're playing that in band, and my band teacher said it weird so the low brass can get it right.)

I have good news to tell you guys, but I can't tell you! I'm getting it tomorrow, so I can tell you then.

Have a good day!
