It All Started With A Brownie

Actually, it starts with two.
Susie gets up one morning and makes a load of brownies. 250, in fact. She and her friends don't know what to do with them so they decide to sell them - outside their apartment. A guy comes along, hood up, blue eyes and soft blonde hair. He keeps his face hidden, but when Susie sees him properly, it's Niall Horan, her celebrity crush. Can Susie keep her secret hidden from her friends, or will the truth come out?


16. Doubts

Here is the chapter, early update :)

Susie's POV

So. It's been three days. Three days and I haven't heard from Niall at all.

After we kissed on the London Eye, Niall seemed very embarrassed and shy on the way back, but I managed to keep the conversation going. Just.

There were a few awkward moments and I could tell Niall was thinking of things to say, although it was kind of awkward when he couldn't, and I had to fill in these gaps with random comments. 

I'm starting to get worried that maybe, after the kiss, he realised he doesn't like me, and that scares me. I want him to like me, because I really like him, and it hurts me when he doesn't bother to pick up the phone to talk or invite me over like he usually does. I've tried several times, but all my calls go to voice mail and it is very, very frustrating.

I mean, I can't be that bad of a kisser, right? To me the kiss was amazing, heavenly, and all I wanted was more of that feeling, but maybe to him the kiss was all wrong. Did he expect more?

As I sat at the kitchen worktop, drowning my sorrows in a cup of steaming hot tea, Liv walked through the apartment front door. When she saw me, her body froze and her eyes locked on mine.

"Liv?" I raised my eyebrows at the girl, she wasn't usually one to go out in the morning of a day off. Normally, her day plan would be:

12:00pm~ Wake up

1:00pm~ Have brunch

1:30pm~ Watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians

2:30pm~ Relax/Read/Finish Coursework/Catch up with friends/Go shopping/Eat food etc. etc.

And here she was at 11:45am, looking incredibly flustered and dishevelled, but definitely dressed and awake.

"Um, yeah?" Liv fiddled with the hem of her jacket, giving me vibes that she was nervous, and that made me even more suspicious.

Suddenly, I realised why she was being fishy and secretive and my eyes widened. "You spent the night with someone?!" I shrieked and jumped up, almost knocking the cup over and rushing to her side. "Spill." Placing my hands on my hips, I waited for Liv to start telling me about her night.

"Are you serious, Susie?"

"Yep." I popped the 'p' and Liv's narrowed eyes and shaking of her head made me doubt myself. It looked as if she couldn't believe what she was hearing me say and that she didn't have time to talk to me.

"What kind of girl do you think I am? I mean, I'm not the most innocent woman on earth, but I'm definitely not a slut. I can't really believe you think I'd sleep with someone without getting to know them first. I would have told you, let you meet them, so stop making stupid accusations and think!" Liv was getting so upset about this that I had to hold her shoulders firmly until she stopped ranting to calm down.

"Look, it's obvious you're upset about something. Wanna talk?" I  suggested but she shook her head.

"Not in the mood."

I groaned and rolled my eyes. "Liv, two years ago, you told me that and I didn't listen to you and hear your problems, and as a consequence, you had to go through an abortion and all that pain on your own. I should have been there for you, but I wasn't because I didn't know. So please do me the decency of telling me what's wrong."

Running her hand through her hair, just like Niall and Harry always did, Liv slumped on the sofa and curled her legs underneath her.

"Fine. I went to Starbucks with Harry today and it didn't go exactly as planned." 

Wow. I didn't expect that one to come out. 

"What do you mean?" I tried not to push too much, but I had to know. I'd made this mistake before, not pushing when Liv was upset, and only now, two years later, have I found out the reason why she was so moody all the time.

"Basically, I thought he was going to apologise and say that he didn't know about my pregnancy and leave it at that, but actually, he came to tell me that he did know, that he was awfully sorry and that he's still in love with me." Her face fell at the latter part and I was confused.

"But that's great Liv!" I exclaimed and she gave me the look again.

"No, it's not. I don't love him anymore. I don't even like him. He broke my trust and nothing can make that better Susie." Storming off to her room, I watched Liv go and eventually sighed. How messed up were our lives?

Well, Annabel and Zara were doing great. They got on really well with all the boys, including Harry, much to Liv's annoyance, and they also adored Perrie and Eleanor, realising that the boys weren't going to break off their relationships with their girlfriends any time soon, and deciding to just be friends with them.

Well, I say that, but Zara was still partially crushing on Zayn. Annabel, being the sensible and mature one <A/N Teehee> decided to take my advice and keep her options open for other guys that may come her way.

Just then I received an incoming call. Glancing down at my phone, I found that the ID number belonged to Niall. Feeling my palms go all sweaty and my brain sighing at the way Niall made me feel, I picked up the phone with shaking hands and pressed the 'pick up' button.

"Hello?" My voice asked as if a question, when in fact I knew exactly who it was.

"Hi, Susie."



I breathed slowly and tried to fan my burning face. "Whatsup?"

"Um, I was just wondering if you wanted to come round to mine a bit later?" At his words, everything I thought earlier came rushing back. I was so frickin' scared that when I went round later he was going to tell me that the kiss meant nothing, I nearly didn't reply.

"Susie, are you there?"

I nodded then felt incredibly dumb. "Yes. I can come, I'm free."

"Cool. Get here around six, I'll have the place tidied by then."

I smiled and told Niall that I'd be there, then hung up and stared at the phone for a long time, deciding not to tell the others, just in case Niall was going to give me bad news tonight. I hated pity and didn't want lots of girls patting my head and giving 'comforting words'.

Finally, after a lot of hard work to get my outfit, makeup and hair right, I was all set and just waiting for the clock to tick a bit faster. Mainly I just wanted the night to be over and done with so that I could move on to new, yellow brick roads in my life.

Oh, who am I kidding?

Luckily, Max was quite easy to get over as I'd known for a few weeks that things weren't going well, and I'd met One Direction, who kept my mind occupied *cough Niall cough*.

But I knew that Niall would be very hard to get over. I relied on him so much, even though we didn't have a relationship, and if he told me he didn't like me in that way, it would break me down and take me a long time to forget.

When I looked down at my watch, it was a quarter to six and picking up my bag, I made my way over to the door of the apartment and sighed. Time to face the music.


Sorry, this isn't very good, but I had to rush it, and, sorry :)

But I think you will like the next two chapters...I hope!!!!

Love Liv xxxxx
