Live While We're Young

Layla, an 18-year-old dancer and her best friend, Addison moved to London. After their first day of college Layla became friends with a boy named Harry. What she didn't know was that he would only cause a chain reaction of dramatic events.

I update at least 2 times a day. Please like, favorite, and comment!! I am open to any suggestions... so if you would like for something to happen in particular don't be shy to ask! :D


13. Jealousy

"I'm sorry, but I have no choice to hire you." He jokily frowned. "Oh well; now I get to see your beautiful face everyday!"

I felt my cheeks heat up. "Thank you so much for hiring me! I promise I won't let you down!" I chirped and extended my hand for him to shake. Instead of shaking my hand he pulled me into a tight hug.

When he pulled away I looked at the ground. "When do I start?" I asked.

"Now, if you can."

I nodded and he smiled. He grabbed my hand and yanked me up, I laughed and he put on an apron on me. His thumbs grazed my back as he tied my apron, sending shivers up my spine. He grabbed my hand again and I followed him into the restaurant.

The next 15 minutes was spent by Matt training me to be a waitress. When he was done he helped me to take off my apron.

 "Your next shift is tomorrow at 9:30 am."

I sighed. "That's early!" I felt as if me and Matt were already really close friends.

He chuckled. "Don't worry, I'm gonna be there."

I smiled and left. "See you tomorrow!" I called before shutting the door behind me.


I knocked on the door, not sure if I wanted to see Niall right now. I heard him talk to someone as he walked over to the door. The door slowly opened, revealing a tired and angry Niall on the phone. When he saw me his expression softened and he faked a small smile.

"I'll call you later." He snapped at the person he was talking to.

A female voice started to shout nasty things through the phone, Niall rolled his eyes and ended the call.

"Who was that?" I asked.

He shook his head let me in.

I sat on the couch and smiled at him. "Guess what!" I chirped.

"What?" He smiled. Finally a real smile, it was the first one I got from him in a day.

"I got a job as a waitress at the restaurant next to my flat!"

He pulled me in a tight hug. "I'm so happy for you!"

We spent the rest of the day together watching scary movies. Niall held me closer when I shrieked, I buried my face into his chest; not being able to handle anymore jump scares. He wrapped his arms around my body and rubbed my back. He whispered sweet things in my ear to calm me down, and I soon drifted off to sleep in his arms.  

The next morning I woke up to the sound of Niall dropping a pan. I jumped up and shrieked, still a little jumpy from all those scary movies.

"Sorry!" Niall said picking up the pan.

"What time is it?" I asked groaning.

"10 am. Some guy named Matt called. You only have to be there at 10:30, so I made you breakfast and let you sleep in."

I smiled and sat up from the couch, I took one of the elastics from my wrists and made a bun. I got up and shuffled over to Niall and wrapped my arms around his neck. I rested my head on his shoulder and his arms snaked up back. A chuckle vibrated through his chest when he squeezed my bum. I planted a kiss on his lips and turned to the pancakes he had just cooked.

'Thank you!" I said and began eating.

Niall turned and started to walk towards the couch. He lied down and closed his eyes. "I'm going back to bed. Wake me up before you leave so I can say good bye."

I laughed and began getting ready for work. When I started to walk towards Niall I saw the time; 10:45. FUCK! I opened the door and ran out. I sped walk to the restaurant.

~Niall's P.O.V~

I woke up by a door being slammed. I looked around and saw that Layla already left. I frowned and texted her.

Me: Layla, you didn't wake me up! What time do you want me to pick you up at?

Layla: Sorry, I was going to be late! I'm done work at 12.

Me: Can't wait to see you, babe! xxx

My belly grumbled and I realized I hadn't ate yet. I decided to text Harry.

Me: Hey wanna go eat out?"

Harry: Sure! Where?

Me: Well I know a place where we will be the first ones served.

Harry: Okay! I'll tell the others the I'll pick you up.

I put away my phone and got ready.

*In the car*

"I didn't know Layla worked at a restaurant!" Liam exclaimed.

"She got the job yesterday." I told him.

Harry pulled over in the restaurant parking lot and turned off the car.

We sat down in one of the tables and started to look for Layla.

~Layla's P.O.V~

I could hear people screaming my name, I turned to see Niall and the boys waving their arms like mad men and whistling trying to get my attention.

"Waitress!" Louis hollered. "We're starving get your ass over here!"

I laughed and acted as if I couldn't hear them. 10 minutes passed before I finally went to them.

I looked at Liam. "What would you like today, Liam?"

"I would like-"

I cut him off. "Only the pancakes?"

"No, I wanted-"

"With a glass of milk? Will that be all?" I smirked.

"Yes." He grumbled.

I did the same to the rest of the boys. "And what will my special Nialler like today?"

He smiled. "I'll take-"

I nodded my head. "Okay, eggs it is." I scribbled it down on my paper and walked away like a boss.

When I brought back their food they all ate like pigs.

"Not bad!" Zayn said with a mouth full.


At the end of my shift Matt took off my apron as usual.

"You know you don't always have to do that." I laughed noticing I was the only one he helped.

"But I like helping you." he grinned.

I smiled at him. My shift ended 10 minutes ago and there was still no sign of Niall. Matt and I sat at one of the tables closer to the door and waited for Niall. We made small talk till we heard the little bell signaling someone had entered the restaurant. I turned to see Niall, who was scanning the restaurant for me. When his eyes landed on Matt who was with me, his eyes immediately turned into a darker color and his jaw tensed. Matt cleared his throat nervously when he saw Niall. 

"I'll see you tomorrow, Layla." He opened his arms for a hug and accepted. Before pulling away he kissed my cheek. When his lips touched my cheek I felt Niall's arms protectively wrap around me. Walking out the restaurant I could feel Matt's eyes on our back, Niall held me close and tight almost hurting me. His hand slid down my back and gave my bum a small squeeze. This must be his way of showing I was his, it made me smile.
