One Month

Liam and Danielle broke up -- Again. Management doesn't want the media to give Liam a bad image, so they set him up with an actress. They have no idea what they both signed up for. Once they meet face to face, they realized that they already dated. They both want out, but management has them stay together for at least a month; then, if they don't like it, they can split. But a split for another couple might come early.

~Liam's POV~


My eyes opened slowly and gazed at an empty bed. The bed was cold, which meant that she has been up for a while. I slowly stood up and shuffled into the kitchen and saw Jennifer sitting in Danielle's chair with Danielle's tea mug in her hands. She was blowing on it the same way Danielle did and it made me smile.

"You're staring, Liam." She smirked and looked up.

"Sorry; It's just that you reminded me of how Danielle was." I sat down in my normal spot scrolling through my twitter feed, like I usually did in the morning. There were few tweets about 'Payzer' breaking up and hate articles, others were follow requests. I followed some of the young girls and the few amount of boys who tweeted me.

"I'm sorry about what happened between you two." She gave me a sympathetic smile.

"Well, things happen. Maybe it wasn't meant to be." I shrugged and got up to make us breakfast, "Did you want anything?" I looked back at her whilst she sipped on her tea.

"No, but thank you." She shook her head and placed her mug on a vacant cup holder.

I made myself an omelette before getting ready for the day. I brushed my teeth and decided to take a shower tonight, instead of right now. I pulled on a track suit and choose to go for a jog today. When I exited the washroom, I saw that Jennifer was also in a track suit.

"Perfect weather for a jog, huh?" I scared her, making her jump a little bit.

"We need to convince the media that we are a couple!" She giggled like Danielle use to.

"So you knew I would go jogging? Creepy!" I fake shuttered and she hit my arm.

I escorted her to the elevator and we were carried down the floors until we reached the lobby. I motioned for her to leave first and I followed right behind her. As soon as we exited the building, I was bombarded with questions from the paparazzi.

"Liam, where is Danielle?" A short blonde woman asked

"What's the new girl's name?" A brunette pointed the microphone towards Jennifer.

"Did 'Payzer' break up again?" This man got me real upset when he said 'again'.

"Come on, LiLi; don't listen to them." Jennifer grabbed my hand, running away. It was no help, the paparazzi were following us.

"We shouldn't be running, we need to be persuasive." I stopped in my tracks to breathe properly.

"You looked like you wanted to punch someone once they mentioned Dani."

"I'm still going to be upset, she only deserted me yesterday." I looked down at my feet.

There was a long pause, then she spoke again, "Well, let's jog close together; shall we?"

The jog was mostly silent, except for the heavy breathing that came from the both of us. Occasionally, she would challenge me to race her from something like the water fountain to a large oak tree. It was a tie almost  every single time. She got tired from all the racing at the last two and had given up. It was 12:03 when I checked my watch, and we decided that it was time to eat.

We had lunch at a small cafe downtown; that was a couple of hours ago, making it 3 pm. The paparazzi had vanished by the time Jennifer and I got back to my building. We were just relaxing in the living area, scrolling through twitter; the usual.

"Liam?" Jennifer questioned.


"Is this Danielle?" She asked, astonished, and faced the computer towards me.

I chocked back on some tears, "Yeah, that's her."

"She's beautiful."

"I know." I spoke softly

"It's her loss, because you are a great guy, LiLi." She comforted me and rubbed my shoulder. All I did was nod and gave Jennifer a slight grin. I focused back on my computer because I was DMing Zayn.

zaynmalik1D: Hey.

Liam Payne: Sup.

zaynmalik1D: The boys and I were thinking that all eight of us should go out tonight.

Liam Payne: Eight? and what are we going to do?

zaynmalik1D: Us, you, and the girls. Dinner and clubbing.

Liam Payne: Sounds alright. Lemme ask her.

"The boys want to know if we could join them for dinner and clubbing tonight. What do you say?" I inquired.

"Absolutely. What time should we get ready?"

Liam Payne: We'll go. What time?

zaynmalik1D: At 5.

"Soon, maybe around 5." I answered.

"What can we do for the next couple million hours?" She joked.

"Select our outfits. Choose carefully; it's what you will wear all night!" I smiled.

"Okay, I have many clothes to choose from, come help me!" She begged.

"My fashion taste is horrible. Helping with outfits is Louis' job anyways. Just surprise all of us." I encouraged her

She came out of the washroom wearing the most beautiful dress I've ever seen. The dress was a bright white with black and silver sequence dotting all over it and reached down to her thighs.

To top it off, she wore silver pumps, silver and black bracelets, and a black mini purse.  She was absolutely stunning, and again, I was caught staring.

"Close your mouth; you'll catch flies." She smirked.

"Sorry." I murmured.

"Now it's your turn." She smirked.

"Easy, I already know what I'm going to wear." I pulled out a shirt and pair of pants from my closet labeled 'Clubbing' and showed it Jennifer.

"Not fair! now go get dressed." She whined

"Shall we go now?" She clicked her heels and strut towards me.

"Yes, this way." I linked our arms.

Once again, we came out of my building, the paparazzi were hidden this time. There was a limo waiting for us at the entrance and I opened her door like I used to for Danielle on special occasions.

The drive to the restaurant was very long, so I decided to get some shut eye; it was going to be a long night. Still, deep down in my gut, I knew that this idea was a bad one.

For what only felt like 3 seconds, I was fully aware of my surroundings; not exactly awake, but not sleeping either. I heard voices from the car's radio and a woman's voice.

"LiLi, wake up!" Jennifer poked me softly. I opened my eyes and looked around, we were at the fancy place Zayn was DMing me about.

"How long have we been here?" I asked, my voice was raspy.

"We just got here; you're a light sleeper, you know?" She giggled.

"Well, here we go. Our second public display." I opened up the limo's door and stepped out. I place out my hand and Jennifer gladly accepted it and we made our way to the large double glass doors.

"Ah, Liam! Your table awaits." The hostess lead Jennifer and I towards the VIP section of the restaurant, where I saw the rest of my band seated.

"Liam!" They chanted in unison.

"Hey boys!" I chuckled and pulled a chair out for Jennifer and she gladly sat down.

"Hello, uh, wait I have this; Louis, Harry, Zayn and Niall?" She pointed to each of the lads in a row and they nodded when she got them all correct, "I'm sorry, Liam never mention you two." She looked at Eleanor and Perrie.

"Eleanor Calder, Louis' girlfriend." El softly told Jennifer.

"Perrie Edwards, Zayn's girlfriend." Perrie shook her hand.

We had made small talk among ourselves while we were waiting for our dinner to be served. In a matter of minutes, all of our orders were placed in front of us and we started to eat.

"Liam never said that he dated anyone before auditions. So, what happened to make you split apart?" Niall asked Jennifer.

"Uh, that's a long story." She mumbled.

"Soft subject?" Niall was interrogating her.

"I'd rather not speak about it."

"Come on, it's probably not that bad." He pushed on. My jaw tightened and my fists clenched my fork and knife.

"Niall, drop the subject." Zayn spoke up with a strict tone.

"Okay." He murmured. He was silent for the rest of dinner, probably afraid that I was mad at him.

We stayed at the restaurant for another hour or so while everyone was getting to know Jennifer a little bit better. And so Niall could have enough time to savor and finish his food.

After we payed the bill, we all went outside and climbed into the limo that the other boys must have rode in to get her, as it was a different driver.

We rode silently in a different limo on the way to the club; the only sound made was the music bursting through the speakers. Jennifer mouthed along with the words of 'Back For You' and I smiled at her.

"I didn't know you were a fan of One Direction." I chuckled and she looked back at me.

"I wouldn't call myself a directioner, but I absolutely adore the new album." She shrugged whilst staring back out the window.

I felt a pair of eyes watching me, so I turned around; Niall was sitting to the right of me. Poor lad was looking worse than before.

"I didn't mean to anger you. I just like to know what went wrong." He apologized with his thick Irish accent. 

"I'll tell you sometime, but not now; it's too early." I said, whilst giving him a big hug.

"We're here!" Louis shouted, "Come on, guys!" He was the first to go into the club, followed by Harry, Zayn, and Niall. Jennifer and I were the last ones out of the limo. As we stepped out, the paparazzi were trying to get us to smile for a photo, but she kept on pulling my hand into the building that stood before us.

I followed her to the bar while the rest of the boys, El, and Perrie went to go dancing. She sat down on one of the empty stools and motion for me to sit down next to her.

There was a long moment of silence as we sat at the edge of the bar. Neither of us wanted to order any drinks, so no one came over to serve us.

"You should know that I don't drink." I leaned in and whispered to her.

"I know. I don't drink either." She giggled.

"Wanna just leave everyone else here?" I looked at her and she nodded her head.

I took her hand and lead her through the dance floor to let Louis and Eleanor know that we were leaving.

"But the fun had just started!" Eleanor whined.

"Maybe they want their own fun." Louis winked. Jennifer and I forced some laughter and turned around to leave.

I pulled her towards an outstretched limo and climbed in, "How embarrassing! Now they think we left to go have sex!" Jennifer cried out as she sat down and shut the door.

"It's not like Louis was being serious, he was kidding." I chuckled knowing Louis.

The drive back to my place was blissfully quiet. Jennifer had fallen asleep with it being 10; Niall eats a lot of food and eats it slow, so dinner was very long and driving takes up a lot more time than I would have thought.

When the limo stopped in front of my apartment building, I didn't wake up Jennifer. Instead, I picked her up bridal style and carried her through the lobby. I placed her on the floor of the empty elevator and pressed the pent house button.

Her eyes fluttered open as I tried picking her up again and she smiled at me, "Thank you for trying to not wake me, but I think I would need to get into my pajamas before I get into any bed." She stood up straight.

When the elevator came to a stop, Jennifer and I stumbled into my house laughing. She had her mouth gaped open, white teeth showing from beneath red lipstick. Her dusty blonde hair bounced down her shoulders; she was beautiful.

"Let me go get changed and I'll meet you in the bedroom." She walked down the hall and sighed once she was out of sight. I walked into my bedroom and sat down on the bed, waiting for Jennifer to get done so I can ready fro bed. The door opened shortly after and I gathered my pajamas and went to change clothes.

My phone beeped; It was a DM from Zayn:

zaynmalik1D: heard someone left early ;)  

Liam Payne: she's asleep, Zayn.

zaynmailk1D: wow you guys are fast!

Liam Payne: not what I meant...

I locked my phone and got dressed the rest of the way. I came from the bathroom to find Jennifer sprawled across the bed, not even underneath the sheets, snoring away. I chuckled lightly and decided to sleep of the couch tonight.
