Life In the Friend Zone

Alexa was just a girl who fell in love with a boy. One problem though, he didn't share the same feelings.


2. How I Got Myself Into This Situation

*Two Years Ago (2011)*

     Eleanor came out of the bathroom in her short dress that my mother would kill me if she had seen me wearing it. "Ready?" she asked. I nodded as I grabbed my clutch. We were invited to Niall Horan's 18th birthday. I was honestly excited. Well who wouldn't be? I was wearing a simple black dress that stopped a couple inches above my knee. I slipped on my heels before going into the bathroom to check my makeup. "You look great," El smiled. "Thanks, so do you," I smiled back. I turned off the light then followed El to the cab that was waiting for us outside. The whole way there, we sang along to the radio. Inside the club, Eleanor instantly drifted to Louis leaving me all alone to mingle. I walked to the bar to get a drink. I sat down and drank by myself. "What are you doing all alone?" a thick Irish accent asked. "Nothing," I sighed as I turned around. I felt my heart flutter when I laid my eyes on Niall. "Well would you like to dance?" he asked, putting out his hand. I nodded as I took one last sip of my drink. I set it on the bar then put my small hand into his. "So what's your name love?" he asked as he lead me to the dance floor. "Alexa," I shyly said. "I like that name," he smiled. We danced for the rest of the night. "It was really nice to meet you," I smiled as we walked to the door. "We should hang out again," he agreed. He pulled out a pen and wrote his number on my arm. "Call when you get home," he smiled causing my knees to feel weak. All I could do was nodded my head as a response.

     I felt like I was on Cloud Nine the whole way back to the flat. I wanted to tell Eleanor about everything that happened but Louis was there. I covered the number on my arm with my opposite hand, playing it off like I had an itch. "Lex! Have you met Lou?" El asked as I walked past her and Louis on the couch. "Nope," I said as I continued my way to the bedroom. "That's Alexa for ya," I heard Eleanor giggle as I closed the door. I took my phone out of my clutch and quickly sent Niall a text, telling him I had made it home safely. "Good. So I was thinking about going to see a move tomorrow. You in?" he texted back. "Sure. What movie?" "Contagion?" "Sounds good :) Well I'm going to let you sleep. Nite xx" I felt a stupid smile creep onto my face. As I changed into my pajamas, I thought about a relationship with Niall.

*One Year Later*

     Niall and I had been friends for a while. Deep down inside, I wanted to be more. Occasionally we would hang out while he was on tour or on break. We would just sit around and talk about what was new in our lives. When he told me that he liked one of his friends, my heart started to beat out of my chest. "I mean she's everything I'm looking for," he told me with a coy smile on his face. "Tell her how you feel," I smiled. "But what if she doesn't feel the same?" he asked. "Niall, who wouldn't love you? It's impossible not to love you," I smiled. "Thanks Lex," he smiled as he gave me a hug. I went home an hour later. I woke up the next day to see that he had went on a date with his friend Amy. I couldn't think straight. I laid in bed and cried the whole day. Eleanor stayed with me to figure what made me feel this way. "H-He d-doesn't l-love m-me!" I told her in between sobs. "Who?" she asked. "N-Niall." I hadn't told anyone about my crush on Niall. It was my little secret that I was glad to let off my chest. "You like him?" she asked. I nodded, unable to talk. "Babe, he likes you, just not in that way," she said. "I know," I said quietly. "Hey, don't let one miss getcha down," she smiled. "There's plenty of fish in the sea." I nodded, wanting to end this conversation. El nodded then left the room. I closed my eyes to take a nap and escape this hell hole. I didn't fall asleep right away because I had one question bouncing around my head: Will Niall and I ever be more than friends?
