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.


3. Mini Golf is the Best Way to Fix a Broken Heart

     I felt horrible. Niall was coming to visit me any second and here I was looking like a complete mess. My last boyfriend had dumped me because I didn't want to have sex with him. Low right? Trust me, El gave me a big lecture about this. I was sitting in the living room watching 21 Jump Street to hopefully lighten my mood. I had lost track of time because during the shoot out scene, there was a knock on the door. I was an honest mess: my hair was in the world's messiest bun, my eyes had to be blood shot from crying for a whole day straight, and I was wearing a pair of oversized sweatpants and an old tww shirt. I was praying that it wasn't Niall behind the door. I looked through the peep hole to see blonde locks that were fading to brown. I opened the door with a fake smile. "Hey Ni!" I cheered. "No offence Lex, but you look like shit," he said. "Yeah I know," I sighed. "Do you want to hang out tomorrow? I mean if you want to be alone," he rambled. "Nah I'm fine," I lied. As much as a douche my ex was, I was pretty hurt that our relationship was over. "You sure?" he asked, raising his eyebrow. "Yes now get in here," I smiled. Eleanor was off studying at Starbucks or something like that so it was just going to be me and Niall. I moved out of the way so he could come in. "Please excuse the mess," I said as I closed the door. "Ehhh. I've seen worse," he shrugged. "You want anything to drink?" I offered. "Can I have a water?" I nodded. "You can play the movie if you want," I yelled to him. 

     I placed my Beetles cup in front of him then sat next to him on the couch. "So what gotcha all worked?" he asked. "My ex," I sighed. "Do I have to go and kick Dalton's ass?" he asked, referring to the boyfriend before the most resent one. "It's not Dalton. I just broke up with Jeremy." "Why? I liked him?" "I didn't want to go all the way," I told him. I saw anger flash in his eyes. "Niall! Don't even think about it," I told him. He didn't say anything, he just watched the movie. I sighed and did the same. When it ended, I asked him what he wanted to watch. "Do you have Grease?" he asked. "I think so," I said as I dug around the DVD collection. "Here it is," I cheered as I pulled it out of the bottom of the box. I put it in the DVD player than sat back down. "So are we going to do this all day?" I asked. "What do you want to do?" "Mini golf?" I suggested. "Sounds like fun," he smiled. He got off the couch and pulled me with him. "Wait! I have to get changed!" I protested. "I guess you could do that," he smiled. I saw his cheeks turn red from embarrassment. I told him that I would be right back before running off to my bedroom. I dug in my dresser for something cute to wear. I stole a pair of Eleanor's shorts and threw on one of my see through blouse with a cami under. I did my makeup because without it, I would look like a zombie. "Alexa! Hurry up," Niall whined from behind the door. "I could take longer!" I yelled as I put the finishing touches on my makeup. I heard him mutter something but I couldn't make out what it was. Shortly after that, I came out. "Finally," he sighed. I walked to the shoe rack that was by the door and slipped on a pair of T-strap sandals. I grabbed my bag before opening the door. "Let's go!" I called. "We're taking my car!" he yelled back. 

      "Hole in one!" Niall cheered. "Bull!" I challenged. "Well you should have been watching," he shrugged. "Do it again," I instructed. I knew he had cheated, I wasn't stupid. "Come on Lex, you're holding up the line," he said, trying to change the subject. "I'll move but you're getting a zero," I smiled as I wrote a zero on the scorecard. "Like I care," he shrugged. "I bet you're dying on the inside," I joked. "It's like you know," he smirked as we walked to the next hole. "That was so a hole in one," he muttered as he put his ball down. "Keep telling yourself that Tiger Woods," I joked. "OH MY GOD!" I heard a girl scream. "Niall!" she yelled, waving her arms around but he ignored her, lining up his shot. "Bro, at least smile at her," I told him. "Shh!" he snapped. "I'm trying to focus." "Well here, let me get more fangirls to help," I replied sarcastically. He rolled his eyes before taking a swing. I clapped before I took my turn. By the end of our game, we had tied. "I think we should celebrate wit some ice cream," Niall grinned. "Well let's go," I said.

     After the ice cream, we went back to the flat to hang out until El came home. "Well, I'll see you later Lex," he smiled. "Bye Ni," I waved. When the door closed, Eleanor asked what we did. "Oh nothing. Just some mini golf, ice cream, and movies," I smiled. "Aweee. It's like you two are dating," she gushed. "Haha!" I smiled. "No." "Oh come on, it's bond to happen some time. Have you seen the tweets about you guys?" I shook my head. El handed me her phone and all I saw were tweets about how cute me and Niall were together. I felt my cheeks turn red. "Maybe he'll listen," she shrugged as she took her phone back. "Maybe," I agreed.
