36. Don't Pull a Liam and Beth

***Beth’s POV***
 
Today we had arrived in New Mexico. I sat in the lounge of the tour bus, scrolling through Twitter. Everyone had gone out to Lunch except Niall and Harry. Niall would have gone but hes not feeling well. They walked into the lounge.
 
“So, what do you two think of Miranda and Emily?” I asked them.
 
“Miranda is really cool. “Harry said casually.
 
“So do you fancy her?” I asked him.
 
He raised his eyebrows at me. “Well that escalated quickly.”
 
“Answer the question Harold.” I smirked.
 
“Maybe.” He said.
 
“I bet you didn’t know that Miranda and Emily also play Call of Duty. They have both beat me at least once.” I grinned.
 
Both of their eyes widened.
 
“What about you Niall? Do you fancy Emily?” I asked him.
 
“Maybe a little.” He blushed.
 
I grinned and turned to Harry. “Don’t lie to me.”
 
“Ok fine. I fancy Miranda.” He mumbled.
 
“Good. She fancies you too. Don’t be like Liam and I. Tell her.” I told him. “And Niall, you too. Emily is Irish by the way. She moved to Wolverhampton when she was 10.”
 
Niall looked at Harry then back at me.
 
“I told you two I would find you girlfriends. They just happen to be my best friends.” I smiled.
 
The bus door opened. “Honey I’m homeeee!” We heard Louis yell.
 
“Pumpkin?! I missed you!” Harry shouted.
 
Niall and I watched in amusement as Louis and Harry ran to each other and embracing each other in a hug.
 
“Sorry to break Larry up but Harry, Niall and Beth need to eat the food we brought back.” El smirked.
 
Liam came over and sat next to me. He handed me a box of food.
 
“Thank you.” I grinned.
 
“Of course. I even got your favorite.” He told me.
 
I looked in the box and saw Cheese Ravioli with alfredo sauce. I grinned at Liam.
 
“You are amazing.” I told him.
 
He kissed me. “No you are.”
 
“No PDA while we’re eating!” Niall groaned.
 
Liam and I rolled our eyes. I began eating the ravioli and Louis turned on the TV. SpongeBob was on.
 
“Patrick is the best.” I announced.
 
Louis looked at me. “What? Did you just say Patrick is the best? No! SpongeBob is the best.”
 
I smirked. “Oh really? Yours lives in a pineapple and has a pet snail named Gary.”
 
“And Patrick lives under a rock.” He told me.
 
“You are both wrong. Squidward is the best. The only downside is he is constantly harassed by SpongeBob and Patrick.” Harry smirked.
 
I shook my head. “No. Squidward is forever alone. He has no friends and no one likes him.”
 
Harry pretended to look shocked. “Take that back!”
 
I grinned and shook my head.
 
“Well Patrick has the mind of a one year old.” Harry huffed.
 
“SpongeBob is still better than Squidward and Patrick.” Louis informed us.
 
“Are you three really fighting over which SpongeBob character is better?” Liam smirked.
 
I looked at Liam. “Yes. Yes we are.”
 
Liam just smiled and shook his head.
 
-Later that night-
 
It was around 11:30 and I lay in my bunk, unable to sleep. I slipped out of my bunk and went to the lounge and saw that Louis was sitting there on his phone. I sat down next to him.
 
“How come you and I never hang out anymore?” He asked me.
 
I shrugged. “I guess we both got caught up in our relationships.”
 
“You are always spending time with Liam and I am always spending time with El.” He said.
 
“Yeah. Well I have to admit, you are the one I’m closest with besides Liam.” I smiled.
 
“Yeah out of all the girls besides El, I’m closest to you.” He told me.
 
“Tomorrow you and I should pick up breakfast for everyone.” I said.
 
“Alright.” He replied.
 
“Ok I also need your help with something.” I said.
 
“With what?” He asked.
 
“Harry and Miranda fancy each other and Niall and Emily fancy each other. Unfortunately they are both pulling a Liam and Beth by not telling each other.” I told him.
 
Louis shook his head. “They both should have learned by now. I mean it took Liam 14 years. Who knows how long it will take Niall and Harry.”
 
“Yeah.” I said.
 
-The next morning-
 
Louis and I were going out to get breakfast. Everyone else was still asleep. I quickly changed into this polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=72701697. I threw on Liam’s Jack Wills sweatshirt and walked out to the lounge to meet Louis. Louis and I walked off the bus and got into the car. We drove to the nearest breakfast place. Once we arrived we ordered a few orders of pancakes, sausages and eggs. As soon as we got our food we went to the Starbucks next door. We ordered everyone a drink. We walked out of Starbucks, 10 drinks in our hands and got back into the car. On the ride back to the busses, Louis and I sang along to the songs on the radio. Once we arrived back at the busses we grabbed the food and walked back onto the bus. Harry, Liam, Niall, Miranda and Emily were sitting in the lounge watching a movie.
 
“There you are! And you brought food!” Niall shouted.
 
Louis and I smirked. “No Niall we brought food for everyone but you.”
 
Niall looked like he was about to cry. “B-but.”
 
“And you stole my sweatshirt.” Liam grinned.
 
“I know. It smells good. It smells like you.” I grinned.
 
I gave everyone their drinks and went to sit next to Liam. He wrapped his arms around me and I snuggled into his shoulder.
 
“You can give me my sweatshirt back when it smells like you. You smell good.” Liam told me.
 
“Who said I’m going to give it back?” I smirked.
 
“Eventually its going to stop smelling like me.” He grinned.
 
I rolled my eyes and grinned. I looked over at Harry and Miranda who were deep into a coversation. Miranda caught my eye and I smirked at her. She rolled her eyes at me and threw a pillow at me. I threw the pillow back at her. She gasped and threw the pillow back at me. I stood up and grabbed her arm and pulled her back to the bunks.
 
“Mir you fancy Harry. He fancies you. Stop being like Liam and I.” I told her.
 
She blushed. “He doesn’t like me like that.”
 
I put my hands on my hips. “What did I say about Liam before we were in a relationship?”
 
“That he didn’t like you like that.” She mumbled.
 
“Excatly. He likes you Mir. A lot.” I told her. “It’s the same with Em and Niall.”
 
“What if he really doesn’t like me like that?” She asked me.
 
“Miranda, Harry and I tell each other stuff. He might have casually mentioned that he might fancy you.” I told her.
 
Her eyes widened. “You’re lying.”
 
“You are impossible to convince.” I groaned.
 
I walked back out to the lounge and grabbed Harry and Niall’s arms. I dragged them off the bus.
 
“I was eating my foodddd!” Niall whined.
 
I smirked. “Your food can wait.” I told him. “Niall you fancy Emily, Harry you fancy Miranda. They are my best friends and they tell me everything. They might have mentioned that they fancy you two. Harry, Miranda thinks you don’t like her like that. I told her that she sounded like me when she told me that Liam fancied me, look where Liam and I are now. If you two truly do like them, go or them before another guy does.”
 
“Are you absolutely sure?” Harry asked.
 
“Harry, I’m positive.” I told him.
 
“Okay. I’ll ask her.” Harry smiled.
 
I turned to Niall. “Niall?”
 
“I don’t know. I mean I really like her. Shes the girl version of me but I’m still not convinced. She always refers to me as her best friend.” Niall sighed.
 
I groaned. “I’ll be right back. Stay here.”
 
I walked onto the bus. “Liam I need your help with something.”
 
Liam stood up and walked off the bus with me.
 
“Yes?” He asked.
 
“Niall here doesn’t think Emily fancies him because she always refers to him as her best friend. Liam, what did I call you all the time before we were in a relationship?” I asked him.
 
“You called me your best friend. Niall, what Emily really means is that she fancies you but doesn’t want to admit it. That’s how Beth and I were. I’m serious.” Liam told him.
 
Niall sighed. “Fine but if I get rejected I’m blaming you two.”
 
“No Niall, you’ll be thanking us.” I told him.
 
We all walked back onto the bus and Harry came over to me.
 
“Beth can I talk to you for a moment?” He asked.
 
 I nodded and followed him back to the bunks. “I’m going to ask Miranda tonight. I need you to get her to wear something nice but good for the beach. Have her ready by 5:00. Don’t tell her what is going on. Drive her to the beach that is near here. I’ll take it from there.”
 
I grinned. “Of course I’ll help you.”
 
“Thank you so much.” He smiled.
 
I nodded and grinned.
 
-4:10-
 
“Hey Miranda. Lets go out somewhere.” I said to her.
 
“Now?” She asked.
 
“We can leave at 4:50. I want to pick out your outfit though.” I told her.
 
She gave me a weird look. “Okay then.”
 
We walked back to the bunks and I started pulling out different outfits.After 10 minutes I finally had her outfit. This was Miranda’s outfit polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=72710089.
 
She raised her eyebrows. “Where are we going exactly?”
 
“It’s a surprise.” I told her.
 
She shrugged and we walked off of the bus. We got into the car and I pulled out of the parking lot. I drove for a while before I pulled into the parking lot of the beach.
 
“We are going to the beach? Beth, you do realize that its like 5:00 right?” She asked.
 
I grinned and nodded.
 
We got out of the car and I walked with her to the edge of the beach. I spotted Harry and quickly walked back to the car. Miranda finally saw me rushing away.
 
“What the hell Beth?!” She called.
 
I watched as Harry walked up behind her and tapped her shoulder. I grinned and got in the car and drove back to the busses.
 
***Miranda’s POV***
 
I watched as Beth ran back to the car.
 
“What the hell Beth?!” I called.
 
I felt someone tap my shoulder and I turned around and saw Harry standing there. I was shocked.
 
“Harry?! Wha-…how…did you and Beth plan this?” I asked him.
 
He grinned and nodded. “Don’t be mad at her. It was my idea.”
 
“I’m not mad.” I smiled.
 
“Walk with me.” He told me.
 
I walked with him down the beach, the sun setting on the horizon. He led me to a place where a blanket was set up and a picnic basket was.
 
“A picnic on the beach?” I asked.
 
“Yeah. Do you like it?” He asked.
 
“I love it.” I grinned.
 
“Good.” He smiled.
 
We sat down and Harry began taking stuff out of the basket.
 
-skipping dinner-
 
We had just finished eating dinner and Harry and I were walking along the beach. He stopped walking and faced me.
 
“Miranda, the moment I laid my eyes on you I thought you were the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. You make me laugh you make me smile and you are easy to talk to. I feel like you are my best friend even though I only met you a little more than a week ago. What I’m trying to say is… I want to be more than best friends.” He said.
 
I was silent as I looked up into his big green eyes. “I feel the same way.”
 
He grinned. “Really?”
 
“Yeah. Your green eyes make me want to melt. Your smile makes me smile. Your voice is flawless. The moment I was you, I knew you were an remarkable guy.” I told him.
 
“Miranda Carter, will you be my girlfriend?” He asked.
 
“Yes.” I told him.
 
He pressed his soft lips to mine and my arms found their way around his neck and his arms around my waist. It was perfect.
