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.


6. Way To Go Nialler

*Niall's P.O.V.*

     I had checked my phone to see that Alexa had called when we had walked into the airport. I sent her a text to see if she was still awake. In the car, I just constantly my phone. "Niall, something tells me that she's sleeping," Harry said. "Maybe she's working," I said more to myself than anyone. It was about 10 when we got to our hotel. I had to share a room with Liam which I was happy about. I sighed as I placed my phone on the night stand. "Aww Niall! Cheer up," Liam smiled. I gave him a fake smile before laying on my bed. My eye lids started to get heavier the longer I laid there. Soon, I was asleep. 

     "Niall," Alexa's voice rang in my ears. I slowly opened my eyes to see her smiling face. "Finally you're up babe!" she smiled as she got out of bed. I knew that this was a dream. I slowly followed and walked downstairs. Alexa was getting a bowl from the cabinet when I wrapped my arms around her waist causing her to giggle. "Ni what are you doing?" she asked once she had calmed down a bit. "Oh nothing," I smirked. She turned around and looked me in the eyes. She leaned in so I followed. A few more in- "Niall!" Paul shouted, waking me from my dream. "Let's go you have press." "Five more minutes," I groaned, wanting to go back to the dream. "You can sleep on the way now get ready." I reluctantly got out of bed. "Be in the hall in five," he instructed. I nodded as I walked to my suitcase to get some clothes. I grabbed the first shirt and pair of jeans I could find. I slipped on socks before putting on my Supras.  Liam's bed was empty so I suspected that Paul had let me sleep in. I grabbed my phone to check the time. 5 A.M. My favorite time to wake up. I put my phone in my pocket before walking out. Paul was leaning against the wall when I came out into the hallway. "Alright let's go," he said. I followed him to a car waiting for us in the parking garage. I sat next to Lou in the back.

     As we drove off, I sent Alexa a quick text saying "Good Morning :)" "What are you doing up so early?" she quickly texted back. "I could ask you the same thing." I replied. "I couldn't go back to sleep. :/ So what did you have to tell me?" How did I know that she was going to ask this? "Lou?" I asked. He looked over at me with a questioning look. "How should I tell her?" A smile creeped onto his face. "Just come right and say," he replied. I nodded as I decided how I wanted to word it. "Well, I dont know how to word it but i'll try," I typed. "I like this girl, but i dont think she likes me back." I reread the text a couple times before I hit the green send button. I was jittery the whole time that I waited her to reply. "Ni, she's stupid not to like you. You are one of the sweetest boys i know. You might as well as move on because there are thousands of girls waiting in line for you." "Wow," I muttered. I looked over at Lou to ask him what to say and he just shrugged. I sighed as I contemplated how to say what I wanted to say. "Well should i tell her i like her to see how she reacts?" "That's your choice." I let out another sigh. "Alexa, I like you," I quickly typed and sent before I could regret it.......hopefully. 

*Alexa's P.O.V.*

     I read his text over and over again. This has to some sort of sick joke that Louis is playing on me. "Haha. Very funny Lou," I typed after I sprayed sea salt spray in my hair. "Listen, I'll call you when I'm done just trust that it's niall. Talk to you later love xx" I groaned as I threw my phone on the counter then continued to do my hair. When I was done I checked my phone. Nothing. I what if it really was Niall. "God damn," I muttered at my stupidity. "You alright?" Eleanor asked from the other side of the door. "Yeah, I just stabbed myself in the eye with my eyeliner," I lied. I heard her footsteps walk away so I let out a sigh. Was I really this stupid?

*Niall's P.O.V.*

     After getting our hair and make up done, we were escorted to a room with a white couch. I sat closest to the chair that would be later be filled with the interviewer. We talked until the interview came out. It was a man who was about thirty with an obvious spray tan, well he was tan but orange. "Hey guys," he grinned. "How are you doing?" "Good," we said. "Is there anything that you don't want to talk about?" We looked at each other and shook our heads in disagreement. "Alright in three, two, one!" The camera man said. After he said one, he pointed to the interviewer. "Brad Schaffer here with one of the biggest  boybands in the world, One Direction. How are you doing boys?" "Great," I said and the guys nodded in agreement. "So Niall tell us the truth, are you on or off the market." How did I know that this was going to be asked at some point. "I'm on the market," I laughed. "Now what about the girl in that you went to mini golf with?" "That's my friend Alexa. We're nothing more than friends." The words tasted bitter as they came out of my mouth. The interview dragged on. All I wanted to do is to tell Alexa how I really felt and go from there but nooo I have to be in the interview.

"I just want to thank One Direction for being here," Brad said at the end of the interview. "I hope to see you soon." When the camera man signaled that he had stopped filming, I sprinted out of my seat and into my dressing room. As I ran, I called Alexa. "Hello?" she answered in a whisper. "Hey," I smiled. "I hate to sound rude but make this quick because I'm hiding out in the bathroom." "Well okay. What I texted you is true," I said. The other end went silent. "Lex?" I asked. "I, uh, got to go. I'll call you when I'm done," she quickly said before hanging up. I screwed up my change didn't I? Were the boys lying to me, playing a sick prank? "Niall?" Harry yelled. I didn't answer. I was too busy trying to hold back my tears to answer. "Niall come on mate." He opened the door and walked in. "Dude what happened?" he asked, shocked by appearance. "I told her," was all I was able to say. "And?" "Good question," I muttered.
