8. Shopping Sprees And Gaming Wars

After almost 3 hours, we were in every clothes shop and had bought at least 3 huge bags from each.

“Where to now?” she asked. We were passing some kind of tech place.

“Here! I have to get something. I’ll be right out.” I said shoving my bags into her arms.

“Good afternoon, how may I be of assistance?” the guy asked. He had piercings coming from every place possible and he was completely drooling over me. Eew!

“Uhm, yes, please. I’m looking for a Xbox 360 console as well as a Play Station 3. Oh and could you please point me to the games section?” I asked. I was struggling to suppress my laughter. He was shocked. “Oh and all the accessories for both consoles, please.” I turned and hurried through the games. I grabbed the best ones like Black Ops 2, FIFA, Halo 4, the new Assassins’ Creed, along with some other random and fun looking games. I went to pay and received another shocked expression from the cashier.

“You really know your games.” He said.

“Yes. Yes, I do.” I stated and gave him my card. After paying I added 3 more huge bags to my collection.

“Wow. Now you’ll never get those boys out of your place.” She laughed.

“Speaking of. We can go home now. I got everything I can think of right now.” I said. We began our long walk to her car, talking about random subjects like make up and the new fashion.

After about 10 minutes we found her car and drove home.

“So, what happened with Harry this morning?” she asked when we were halfway home.

“He tried to kiss me, but I backed out. I wasn’t ready yet. Then I told him everything and I mean everything. Louis said he would be by to pick him up in 30 minutes but they didn’t show until a hour later than he told me. During that time I took a shower, changed into this,” I said pointing to my dress. “Harry came in to tell me they were going to leave soon, but started stuttering when he saw me.”

“I would too if I was a guy. And? What happened then?” she asked giggling.

“He left and I got the call about the money. I went downstairs and heard them teasing him about something, but I didn’t realise what until I had to sit on his lap when they gave me a ride to the mall.” I said blushing at the last bit.

“OMG! NO!” she said bursting out into a laughing fit just as we pulled up to her house.

“Yup.” I said popping the ‘p’ not finding this funny at all.

“Oh, they won’t let him hear the end of that, the poor perverted boy!” she said still laughing. We started unpacking the bags and brought them to my place.

“You can just drop that on the couch. I’ll take them up later.” I said placing the gaming gear near the TV. “Do you want some tea?” I asked walking into the kitchen.

“Yes, please.” She answered coming through the door to the kitchen.

“Do you want to play with me?” I asked while getting two mugs and turning the kettle on. I took the incense out and burned a stick of each as well.

“What are you going to play?” she asked sitting on the island countertop.

“I was thinking some zombies. Are you up for it?” I asked lifting an eyebrow while pouring the tea into the mugs.

“I have never played that in my life.”she said. I gasped.

“I’ll teach you! I’m ranked something like fourth in the world.” I said putting my hands on my hips in a matter of fact way.

“Oh! I am in the presence of a master!” she exclaimed acting starstruck.

“Only girl in the top ten.” I said as I handed her the mug.

“How did you manage that?” she asked as we sat down on the couch.

“I didn’t have any friends. Not here or in South Africa. I had a lot of time on my hands I guess.” I said. “No big deal.”

“Uh, major deal!” she yelled. We ended up laughing and putting my clothes away first. Apparently there was some pretty expensive stuff in there. I was placing the heels in my closet when I heard a stampede of footsteps coming up the stairs.

“Hide!” I whispered pulling Lou into the closet and shutting the door. I signalled for her to be quiet. I heard my bedroom door fly open.

“I could have sworn I saw Lou come in here.” Louis said.

“Huddle up!” Harry. Definitely. “Niall, check the kitchen. Zayn, bathroom. Liam, check the study. Louis, check the torture chamber. As for me, I’m going to the backyard.” Torture chamber? I looked at Lou and she just shook her head.

“Ready! Break!” they all yelled and I heard the stampede leave. I opened the closet door on a crack and peeked out. No one. We climbed out giggling.

“Do you think we should go out and reveal ourselves?” I asked her.

“No. This is fun.” She said pulling me to the balcony that overlooked the backyard. We saw Harry standing there looking around.

“Hi Harry!” she yelled.

“What the? We were just up there! Stay there!” he yelled and ran back inside.

“Hide! Same place as before!” she said as we ran back to the closet.

“I found them!” Harry said opening the door again. “I swear, I just saw them on the balcony! They can’t just vanish into thin air.”

“Idiots…” I muttered under my breath.

“Did you hear that?”

“Hear what, Louis.”

“It sounded like someone calling us idiots.” He said. I couldn’t help it anymore. We broke into a fit of laughter and fell out of the closet.

“You really are idiots!” we shouted at the same time.

“Shut up.” Harry mumbled and walked over to me, helping me up. I grabbed Lou and pulled her up.

“I guess we’ll have to reschedule our little play date.” I said pointing to the boys who were staring at us weirdly.

“Yeah, I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself at the hands of a master in front of them.” She nodded.

“What are you on about?” Harry asked looking at us like we were some present waiting to be unwrapped. I looked at Lou and her eyes were just as wide as mine were.

“Eeew! Gross! You guys are so perverted!” we yelled in realisation and ran to the living room, plopping down on the couches.

“How do you live with them?” I asked her.

“You get used to it.” She said. I walked to the TV and connected the two consoles along with their accessories and registered my gamertags.

“Holy cow!”

“Is this real life?!”


“No way!”

“Black Ops 2!”

 I turned around and found 5 dumbstruck boys.

“What’s wrong with you?” I asked as Lou was laughing at their expressions. Kodak moment! I picked up my camera and snapped a picture. “Oh that’s priceless!” I said showing it to Lou. “Who wants to play some zombies?!” I announced. Immediately 3 remotes were gone from the coffee table. I looked up to see Harry, Zayn and Louis had them already in place on the couch in front of the TV. Niall was in the kitchen and Liam was talking to Lou about something. I sat down next to Harry seeing as that was the only spot other than the floor left. He looked at me with a devilish grin. Oh no. What’s going on in that mind of his?

I let them choose all of their stuff first.

“Okay, now close your eyes.” I said.

“Why? You’re going to cheat.” Harry whined.

“Liam, help me out here please.” I said.

“Guys, she won’t cheat. I’ll make sure of that. Now close your eyes.” He said and they did. I was just about finished when Liam finally saw my rank. “Holy cow! How’d you manage that?” he asked shocked.

“I had a lot of time on my hands.” I smiled.

“What is it Liam?”

“Is she cheating?”

“She’s cheating, I know it!”

“Ugh, shut up and open your eyes.” He said turning back to Lou.

“Let the games begin.” Harry said.

“And may the odds be ever in your favour.” I said in my best Hunger Games voice. They all chuckled and I started the game.

“Hey! We’re starting!” I said as we got placed in the game.

Almost 20 minutes later we were finished. I won, of course.

“How the hell did that just happen?” Harry asked no one in particular.

“I just got my ass kicked by a girl…” Louis trailed off.

“A girl in a dress.” Zayn said completing Louis’ sentence.

“Do you want to know why?” I asked. They all nodded. I brought up the world leader board and went to fourth place. I pointed at the screen as they were still staring at me.



“God, what next?!” I laughed and went to get out of my dress leaving them in absolute shock. I pulled on some sweats and a tank top. I took of the earrings and placed them back in their box. I kept the rest on. I turned out of my room and walked into what felt like a wall.

“Whoa, there. You alright?” I looked up into those eyes again. So green, it’s almost hypnotising.

“Ye-yeah.” I stuttered. He was staring at me again. His eyes turned darker than they were mere seconds ago.

“I want to try something.” He whispered. He leaned in, my heart beat quickened and my breathing hitched. His hands were on my waist as he pulled me closer to him. I just stood there. He looked down at my lips, back to my eyes and licked his lips. I was staring at his eyes as he stopped inches from my lips. I looked down to his and back to his eyes. My back was pressed to the wall. I couldn’t go anywhere and to be honest I didn’t want to go anywhere. I wanted this just as much as he did. The next thing I knew he pressed his lips to mine. Sparks flew. My eyes fluttered closed and my arms slowly wrapped around his neck. It was soft and sweet, but I had no clue of what to do. I felt his arms snake around me, pulling me closer than I already was. His tongue swiped over my lower lip asking for entrance, my eyes flew open. I pulled away hesitantly. I looked into his eyes for a second. He felt it too. I could see it in his eyes. He smiled and pecked my lips once more before going back downstairs. I stood there not knowing what to do know. My hand crept its way to my lips that were still tingling from the kiss. I have to tell Lou. I practically ran to the balcony in the foyer.

“LOU! FASHION EMERGENCY! I NEED HELP!” I screamed as she came running up the stairs.

“What? What’s wrong?” she asked. I pulled her into my room and shut the door. “Melody, what’s the emergency? I was in the middle of watching Louis kick Zayns’ arse at FIFA.” She wined.

“Lou, harrykissedme.” I rushed it out.

“Slow down and breathe. Now try again.” She instructed.

“Harry and I kissed like not 3 minutes ago.” I said blushing.

“What? No more sweet 16?” she asked a little shocked.

“Yup, no more sweet 16.” I said looking to the floor.

“That boy is in trouble…” she said looking mad.

“NO! Don’t say anything. I don’t want him to know I told you.” I gushed.

“Fine. So did you feel anything?” she asked. I just nodded. I couldn’t explain what I felt. “Jeez. The boy works quick.” She said more to herself. “We should probably get back down there.” I nodded.

“What was the FASHION EMERGENCY?” Louis asked and imitated my shout from earlier as we came back to the living room.

“Oh. I spilled something on my new silk” I clapped my hand over my mouth.

“You started, now finish. Silk what?” Louis asked again turning from the TV.

“Silk dress I bought today.” Changing what I was about to say completely. He looked disappointed and turned back to the TV. Harry was staring at me like I just spoke Japanese or something. His eyes were dark like it was in the car this morning.

“Harry. Wake up, mate. Nialls’ whipping your arse.” Louis said not looking away from the TV.

“Uhm, Louis. He’s got those ants in his pants again.” Zayn laughed at his expression.

“Get your head in the game and out of the gutter, boy! No matter how pretty that gutter is.” Louis said, hitting him on the head.

“Shut up, Louis.” He mumbled.

“I better get going. Bye guys!” Lou said looking at her phone. “Use protection.” She whispered in my ear.

“Lou! Gross! Goodbye!” I said pushing her out the door. So he kissed me, so what? I wasn’t about to go to the extreme. That’s just wrong. I walked over to the empty couch and lied down. The boys were so busy with the games, I didn’t really pay attention. I felt my eyes droop and was out cold in mere seconds.
