Ok, so this chapter is definitely dedicated to: 1dbiggestfan :) Thank you SO much for your lovely comment and for fanning this book! I was having a bad day when I saw that and it really cheered me up!! Thank you so much!!!


May's POV

"May? May, you need to get up. Someone is here to see you," Sophie said softly, poking her head through the door. " "Who is it?" I asked, sitting up on my bed and running my hands through my tangled hair. "Oh, um, a person," she stumbled and shut the door.

I called for Sophie but I realised that she wasn't going to tell me so I got out of bed. I had been curled up in bed since yesterday when I got back. Why didn't Josh tell me he was the drummer for One Direction? Maybe none of this would have happened and Niall would be out of my life forever.

I pulled on a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a tank top, flinging on a random cardigan. I didn't care who it was, I wasn't dressing up. As I left my room I heard some murmuring coming from Sophie's room.

" Do you think she's up?"

"Not sure but I hope she is, she needs to see him."

"Yeah she does, I'll go check on her."

I stepped back from the door and tried to act as if I was just walking past. Chloe opened the door and flashed me a smile.

"You're up," she commented happily. I rolled my eyes," no shit Chlo." She chuckled," so, your er, visitor is waiting in the kitchen." I nodded and walked down the corridor, taking a deep breath before I opened the door into the kitchen.

Josh was staring out the window sipping a mug of something which looked like tea. I closed the door softly and walked up to him. He still hadn't heard me and I was panicking about what I was supposed to say.

"Erm, hi," I came up with. I mentally smacked myself. 'Hi'. Is that all I could say? He turned round and gulped slightly. "Hi May," he responded. We both stood there awkwardly and I looked down at the floor, suddenly finding it very interesting.

"Look, I just came to apologise about yesterday. I don't know what I did wrong but--" "You didn't do anything wrong, honestly," I said truthfully. "But then why did you have to leave?" he asked desperately searching my eyes.

I broke my eyes away from him and looked back down at the floor," it's complicated." He didn't answer but I couldn't face looking at him. "You know that I really like you," he said after a while. I raised my head and gave him a soft smile.

"I really like you too Josh, I was just having... a hard day yesterday and I promise that I will make it up to you," I said, taking his hand. He smiled and leaned down to my face, lifting my chin with his hand gently.

He paused and his eyes flickered from my eyes to my lips then back to my eyes. I smiled at him before his lips came down on mine. I was shocked at first, this was my first kiss since Niall but I kissed him back and his arms slipped round my waist. I smiled into the kiss before he pulled away.

He grinned at me," I really, really like you May." I kissed him again," and that is my answer to you." He smiled," you know you said that you would make it up to me?" I nodded and he carried on," well, me and the boys are going out to lunch later and I would really like it if you came."

I closed my eyes briefly and then reopened them. I did not want to see Niall again but I promised that I would make it up to Josh. If I wanted to be with Josh, which I did, then Niall wouldn't be out of my life and I was going to have to deal with it.

I took a deep breath and nodded. His face lit up and he kissed me again. "I'll just go get ready, you can make yourself another cup of tea." He nodded and I sped back to my room. I shut the door and rummaged around in my wardrobe.

I still hadn't unpacked fully and half of my clothes was still in my suitcases. I groaned and started flinging clothes out of my bags. Finally, I came up with some black studded jeans, a baggy, grey knitted top and some black ankle boots.

I still had my bracelets on thankfully but I added some more, not wanting Josh to find out. It was only Niall who knew about it and I didn't want anyone else.

I glanced in the mirror and then walked out. Chloe and Sophie were surrounding Josh and were throwing questions at him. Josh looked a bit frightened and I stepped in. "Chloe, Sophie?" They turned to look at me and looked a bit sheepish.

"Yeah May?" Chloe asked quietly. "Shut up," I chuckled," I'm going out but I will see you some other time, ok?" "Bye May!" chirped Sophie," have fun!" "But not too much," winked Chloe. "Would you stop saying that Chloe!" I said swatting her round the head.

Josh started laughing and I rolled my eyes at him. "Come on, let's go," I muttered. "Bye guys!" Chloe and Sophie shouted. I shook my head and Josh wrapped his arm around me, bringing me closer to him and kissing my forehead.

"I'm glad you are coming," he said as we got into the car. "I wouldn't want to miss it, I mean I am going to lunch with the biggest boy band! Who wouldn't want to come?" I chuckled but the person who wouldn't want to come was me.

Josh laughed and we drove off with me filling with nerves and anxiety. Facing Niall after the last two days, I hadn't been able to get him out of my head and this wasn't helping.

"We aren't going to Nandos are we?" I asked. Josh looked at me," I thought you weren't a fan of One Direction?" I raised my eyebrow at him," I'm not. What does that have to do with being a fan?"

He chuckled," just all the fans know that Nandos is Niall's favorite place to eat and everyone assumes that we always go out to Nandos. And no we are going to ZiZi's. "

I laughed but inside I was trying not to remember all the times I went to Nandos with Niall. It was his favorite place when we were younger and I guessed that hadn't changed.

"Great, I just er, I went to Nandos a few days ago so I, um, didn't, I mean don't really want to go again," I stumbled. Josh nodded and we pulled into a car park of a shopping centre. "Come on, the boys should be there in a minute," Josh said.

Josh took my hand and I smiled at him as he pecked my lips. "One last thing," he said. I nodded for him to carry on. "Will you be my girlfriend?" he asked nervously. I took a big gulp and nodded. This was it. Josh was my first boyfriend after Niall and somehow I felt a big pang in my heart but I shook it away and kissed Josh.

"Shall we go?" I giggled as we broke away. He chuckled and nodded as we walked hand in hand to Zizi's.
