4. Chapter 3

I walked out of the bathroom and into my room with a towel wrapped around me to find something to wear. I crouched down next to my suitcase and fished out a pair of cropped yoga pants and a matching baby pink hoodie from Victoria's Secret's PINK. Quickly throwing the clothes on, I ran my brush through my tangled dirty blonde locks and brushed my teeth for the day.

I ran down the carpeted staircase, hopping over the last few steps. Making my way into the cute little kitchen, I saw it was already 11:30. Seeing no sign of Liam, I decided to head on into the living room where I heard the TV going.

As I came into the sight of him flipping through the channels. When he noticed me standing in the doorway he patted the space next to him on the tan couch, indicating for me to sit down. I plopped down sitting criss cross applesauce.

"Sooooo," he awkwardly started, "You hungry?"

"Uh yeah a little bit," I replied not taking my eyes of the changing channels. 

"Would you like to order a pizza for lunch?" He asked.

"Sure, I guess."

"Want me to invite the rest of the guys over so you can properly meet them all?" He asked, finally looking my way. I sent him a warm smile and nodded as he pulled out his phone to send out a group text. "So what do you like on your pizza?" He asked.

I shrugged, "Just cheese." I was always a picky eater. He nodded and got up to order  the pizzas from the other room. I grabbed the remote and started to channel surf myself to see if anything good was on. Not recognizing any of the British channels I settled on the news. I started to laugh at the funny way the news broadcaster would pronounce certain words and didn't even notice Liam come back into the room.

"What are you laughing at?" He asked clearly amused. 

I shrugged, "I don't know everything just seems so different here I guess."

I threw the remote back on the coffee table which Liam eagerly grabbed to change to some other kind of show. 




After thirty minutes of constant laughing at whatever Liam put on, the doorbell rang, indicating the pizza man was here.

"Ella, could you get that while I grab my wallet?" Liam asked. I nodded, jumping out of my comfy position on the couch and swung the door open. 

"Hi," I greeted with a smile.

"Hello, I have six large pizzas for a er-Liam Payne?" He asked. My eyes widened at the site on the tower of pizzas. Just then Liam came down the stairs with his wallet open.

"How much?" He asked, out of breath from running down the stairs. 

Handing me the six pizzas that I could barely see over the man check a piece of paper and replied, "$96." Forking over a big wad of cash to the man, Liam smiled and thanked him and relieve me of the huge stack of pizzas that I was struggling to keep a hold of.

"Thanks," I sighed, letting out a breath I didn't even know I was holding. He charged to the kitchen and placed the pizzas on the island. "Why did you get so much?!" I asked. 

"Ella, we are five boys, we eat a lot." He chuckled, "I would take what you want now while you can." I grabbed a paper plate from the stack and took three slices of cheese pizza.

"Umm, can we eat in front of the tv or..?" I asked, unsure. My grandma had a strict no eating in front of the tv rule. 

Laughing at me he replied, "Of course!" I waltzed back into the room I left moments ago and reclaimed my seat on the couch. Taking my first bite and burning my tongue a little bit I heard the front door slam open and four pairs of feet run into the kitchen.

Liam was the first to come in, sitting down in his previous seat as well. "I wouldn't sit there if I were you." He said. 

I furrowed my eyebrows, "Why?" I asked in confusion.

He opened his mouth to speak but four noisy boys interrupted him by coming in, pushing each other around. The blond, the one with the black hair, and the one with the chocolate brown hair all sat on the couch next to ours. Suddenly everyone got quiet and started shifting their eyes between mine and something behind me. 

"What?" I asked, turning my head around. Harry (the only reason I could remember his name was because he had so much cool hair) was looking down at me with wide eyes. "What?" I asked again.

He looked at all of his friends exclaiming, "She's sitting in my seat!" Looking down at me he repeated himself, "You're sitting in my seat!" 

Nervously looking at Liam and everyone else I looked back up into his eyes, "Uh, sorry?" I questioned.

Liam tapped me on my shoulder to get my attention, "We all have our seats. There's three seats over there so Louis, Niall, and Zayn sit there," he said pointing at each boy in turn, "And there are two seats here so Harry and I sit here," he explained. 

"Oh..." I replied, "Then where am I going to sit?"

Before Harry could say anything Liam continued, "Stay there, he can sit on the floor." He looked up at Harry, smirking. 

Harry returned the smirk, "Oh no I think there's plenty of room for all of us right here." He suddenly started easing his way of the arm rest he was sitting on and into his seat, making me keep having to move closer and closer to Liam until Harry was finally on the seat. "Now that's much better!" He smirked. I was so squished between the two boys that I could hardly breathe and I was sitting practically half on Harry!

"Um, maybe for you but not for me!" I squeaked. Shrugging, he began to devour his pile of pizza that was on his plate. Rolling my eyes I started to eat myself, not wanting to get up to let him think he won the battle.

"So Ella," Niall started between bites, "We decided to let you spend a week with each of us in our houses and at the end of the five weeks you can decide who you want to stay with! Sound good?" He asked. 

I shrugged, thinking it sounded pretty sweet that they were giving me the option, "Sure!" I replied. Well the next five weeks are surely going to be interesting!
