Is it love?

1. Chapter 1



“HARRY! HARRY! HARRY! HARRY!” I repeatedly poked my best friend in the side until he turned his shiny green eyes on me. I sat there for a moment, getting lost in those deep, green pools.

“Yes love?” he asked, brushing his gorgeous brown curls out of his face, and succeeding in making me blush.

“U-um,” I stammered, frantically thinking of something to say. “Are you hungry?” He looked at me quizzically for a second before replying with a nod. I was blushing madly. “JOSCELYN! NIALL! YOU GUYS HUNGRY??” Footsteps began thundering down the grand staircase, sounding like a herd of elephants. Joscelyn and Niall appeared a moment later.

“I HEARD THE WORD HUNGRY!” shouted Joscelyn.

“DOES THAT MEAN FOOD?” asked Niall.

“Yes.” I giggled. Those two were always hungry. I mean, we could have just eaten, and five minutes later they are hungry. “We can go to-“

“NANDOS!” Niall and Joscelyn shouted in unison. They high fived, and grinned enormously. I rolled my brown eyes at them.

“What?” they asked, widening their eyes at me.

“You two are so…”

“What?” Joscelyn asked again.

“Cute,” I finished.

“Cute?” Joscelyn asked with a raised eyebrow.

“Yes now c’mon!” I ushered everyone to the front door so we could leave.


After getting conformation from Taylor, Niall grabbed my hand, and pulled me to the door. His hand felt warm and soft in mine. I wonder how his lips would feel…. I mentally smacked myself for thinking that. We have been inseparable ever since we first met a couple of years ago. At first, I felt like his best friend. But now….. there is no denying how I feel about him. I think I’m in love with him. But I don’t think he feels the same. I sighed.

“What’s wrong lass?” Niall turned to face me, his blue eyes searching my brown ones intently.

“Just can’t wait to eat,” I lied.

“Okay then.” I cursed myself for letting even a sigh slip out.

            Since Nandos wasn’t that far away, we decided to walk. We coupled up, Harry and Taylor in the back, with Niall and I leading the pack. Liam, Zayn, and Louis were going to meet us at the restaurant. The sky was overcast, and I shivered involuntarily. Niall saw this, and immediately handed me his jacket before I could protest. I pulled on his hoodie, breathing in his wonderful scent. When we had reached the restaurant, the scent of fried chicken wafted towards me. My stomach growled. Loudly. Everyone turned to me and laughed.

“Something is telling me that we need to go eat in the near future,” Taylor said while giving me a pointed look. I rolled my eyes, and gave her an ‘I don’t know what you are talking about look’, and pushed through the glass doors of Nandos. When we entered the foyer, we saw Liam, Louis, and Zayn waiting by the front desk.

“We already found us a place to sit,” Zayn said, motioning for us to follow him.

“I think the two lovebirds should get that little table in the back.” Louis pointed to a small table for two that was lit with a couple of candles. Taylor smacked him on the head.

“Ow!” Louis cried. “Don’t make me get Kevin to come and peck you!”

I looked at Taylor who seemed to be thinking of a retort. Unsuccessful at that, she grabbed a breadstick, and took a bite.


I looked to Joscelyn, who seemed to be having a good time. She looked over to me, and smiled. Gosh, she is so beautiful. I wonder if…

“May I take your order?” The waiter snapped me out of my thoughts.

“I’ll have the Peri Peri Chicken, Large, with an order of Large fries, and a Large Sprite.” I said smiling.

“I’ll have the same,” Joscleyn said in her melodic voice.

“I’ll have the Chicken Tenders, with fries, and a root beer. chirped Louis sounding like the child he is at heart.

“I’ll have the chicken platter with a Large Coke,” Zayn said grinning. I raised an eyebrow.

“YOU’RE gonna eat all of that?”

“Of course!” Zayn looked indignant.

“I’ll have the Chicken Wrap, and the Portuguese Bread, with sparkling water,” Taylor said reading the menu.

Harry pointed at Taylor. “I’ll have what she is having.”

“And I’ll have the Ceaser Salad with chicken, and a sprite,” replied Liam. The waiter jotted down everything in his tiny notepad, and hurried away. He returned a moment later with our drinks. While we waited for the food, we made small talk. When I brought up our tour that we would be going on in one month, Joscelyn’s face fell. Seeing this, Zayn changed the subject. We were in the middle of playing Would you Rather when the food arrived. I glanced at Joscelyn who mouthed ‘Ready, Set, GO!’ And we began racing to see who could eat the fastest.

“You guys are going to get heartburn,” Taylor commented as she slowly ate her Chicken Wrap.

“Whatever,” I mumbled around a mouthful of fries. I took a gulp of sprite, and looked over to see Joscelyn almost finished with her chicken. I began eating faster, and was about to win when…

“Oh my heart! It burns!” Joscelyn groaned. I immediately stopped eating and pulled her into a tight hug rocking her. She wriggled out of my grasp, winked at me, and put her last fry in her mouth.

“Cheater!” I exclaimed, grinning.


I looked around the table. Niall and Joscelyn were having a food race, Zayn, who looked like he was getting full, was picking at his food. Louis was trying to steal a carrot from Liam’s salad, and Liam was trying to stab Louis with his fork. Taylor was carefully eating her wrap. We have been best friends since we were five years old. That was all we were. But now I feel like things were changing. I began to notice the littlest things about her. Like how she bit her bottom lip whenever she got nervous, or how she got upset when someone made jokes about her size. I thought she was gorgeous the way she was. People were just haters.

“Are you going to eat that?” I looked up to see Niall looking at Zayn’s half-finished chicken platter.

“No.” Zayn sighed and pushed his plate over to Niall. I laughed as Niall and Joscelyn fought over the last piece of chicken on the plate.

            When everyone finished eating, we walked back to our hotel, and chilled there for a while. Since the girls didn’t have anything to change into, Taylor borrowed some sweatpants, and a t-shirt from me, and Joscelyn borrowed some basketball shorts, and a tank top from Niall. We all crashed in the living room, and I put in a movie. I turned on the lights, and started the film. Immediately, Niall got up, followed by Joscelyn, and a few seconds later, I heard the microwave go off. Minutes later, they both filed back into the room with bags of popcorn.

“You guys can’t seriously be hungry after all that.” I said.

“We are growing,” was the response I got. After the first movie went off, I put in another one. By that time, Zayn and Louis had conked out on the couch. Niall was asleep leaned up against Liam’s leg, and Joscelyn had her head on his lap. Taylor was leaned on me sleep of course. The only ones up, was me, and Liam, who looked like he was about to go at any second. I yawned, then leaned into Taylor, and closed my eyes.
