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.

37. On a Wednesday in a cafe

<Rachel's POV>

"So what other talents do you have besides reading other people's mind?" Niall asks as we sat at a random table.

If the others thought we were in some random alley making out...why?

"Well, ummm... I can cook, play guitar, troll people when they annoy me-mostly my parents, swim, skateboard, sing, and tell the future."

"Wait!" Niall stopped me. "You can tell the future?!"

I chuckle. "Yeah, sort of." I answered.

"What do you see me doing in 20 years?" He asked out of the blur.

I burst out into laughter. "I don't know if you want to know what you're doing in 20 years." This would be a good time to change the subject. "So you ran away for a few minutes earlier, and you seemed utterly uncomfortable around Josie."

His smile fades away. "You noticed?"

I nod. "I overheard her saying something to Elizabeth, Britta, and Becca about 'used to date before he left for the X-Factor' and such. I'm guessing she was referring to you?"

His glare still stays straight. "We used to pretend date back in school so people will stop making fun of her for being single. We were pretty good friends. And a few months later, we started dating for real. Then about five months after we started to date, I passed my X-Factor audition, made it to Boot Camp, and was grouped with the boys. And just before we traveled to Simon's house, I found out she ditched me for another one of our friends. I broke up with her right there and completely forgot about her for about two years until now. Why did she end up in your European tour group? What's with the tour group?"

"Okay," I start. "Well, the whole European tour group thing started after me and Becca graduated Secondary School and wanted to go around Europe. You know, just to get out of the country. So we talked it out with our parents, and they said that we had to be with a group. And we met Eleanor and Nicole, who are a few years older than us, at a restaurant because they were talking about going around Europe too. So we went and asked if they wanted to be in a group, and they said yes. Then Eleanor had to call someone, I can't remember who. But I remember her coming back saying 'He's still not answering' and then Nicole replied 'He won't. He doesn't' know about us anymore, and probably won't bother picking up his phone for nobodies like us'. "

"It was probably Louis." Niall replied. "His phone did ring a few times during a concert. I remember before we left for the cruise, his phone went off saying he had a voicemail from 'Eleanor'. But we didn't have time to answer. That was the day I made them get me McDonalds for breakfast."

"Okay." I say. "So Nicole and Eleanor were in our group. Then we met Josie, who was coming out of a store with some bags saying she was going to tour Europe and we invited her in. Elizabeth and Sereen: I knew Sereen through something, but the two met at Hilton Head and became somewhat close. But they wanted to tour, and like we did with Josie, we invited her in. Who was I forgetting? Oh, Cassidy. Yeah, a guy recommended her for our group."

A waiter comes to our table and asks what we wanted to drink. I asked for a coke, and Niall said "I'll have what she's having". Wow. Classic.

We got our drinks and just started drinking quietly. That's when he breaks the silence saying "Pickles".

"I hate those, you know."

We laugh, and then we stop. I was staring into his deep blue eyes, and he was staring into mine. We lean in slowly, and as we were about to touch, we were interrupted by someone.

"There you guys are!" The voice of Nicole came.

"We were looking all over for you!" Zayn exclaimed.

"You could've at least told us where you were going!" Britta sighed.

"Were you two about to kiss?" Josie asked. Way to ruin the moment.

"Rachel, I called you a dozen times, and you never answered." Becca said.

"Yeah, same with you, Irish boy." Louis sassed.

"So is there anything big we missed?" Niall asked.

"No." Eleanor answered.

"Just Nicole and Eleanor bickering with Louis about how he was a terrible friend and such." Katie added on.

"Where's everyone else?" I asked. I knew that Little Mix came, and Eleanor (Louis' girlfriend).

"They went to where we are going tonight!" Katie answered. "Brit got a call from Cassidy saying she's in France now and she found this cool club that has karaoke and such."

"Yeah." Britta says, sounding quite uncomfortable.

"Okay." I reply. "How about we hit the road and get ready?"

We all agree.

I wonder what's wrong with Britta.

 

A/N: Hey! This is a filler chapter because I'm currently brain dead.

So quick shoutout to elizabeth_tommo_. And if you don't mind, check out her Movella "Those 5 Idiotic Boys". She just started it and it would be nice for her to have some people read it.

I made notes about how this chapter will go, and now it's covered with markings and random drawings.

Thanks for reading. I want coffee.
