Nicole's POV

“Shut up Nicole! Nobody cares what Harry texted you while he was eating his cereal!” Virginia shouted to Nic.

“Everyone cares!"

“Nobody cares Nicole.” I said, V nodding in agreement.

“You two are grouchy today!” She said pouting.

“Grouchy? Are we V? Because frankly I'm just sick of hearing about Harry every second of the day.

“Agreed!” Suddenly there was a knock on the door. V got up to answer it. “Jason!” She said happily. Shit. Jason.

“I'm getting a shower.” I said running into the bathroom and turning on the water.

“Is Nicole here?” I heard him ask.

“She just ran into the bathroom.” Nic said.

“Oh ok. Can I go back there?”

“I think she said she was getting a shower, but she got one literally ten minutes ago.”

“Nicole.” Jason said knocking on the door.

“Nothing has been alright since Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, way before Nirvana, there was U2 and Blondie and music still on MTV. Her two kids in high school they tell her that she's uncool cause she's still preoccupied with 19-19-1985. She seen all the classics, she knows every line, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, even St. Elmo's Fire. She rocked out to Wham! Not a big Limp Bizkit fan. Thought she'd get a hand on a member Duran Duran.”


“Where's the mini skirt made of snake skin? And who's the other guy that's singing in Van Halen? When did reality become TV? What ever happened to sitcoms, game shows, on the radio was Springsteen, Madonna, way before Nirvana, there was U2 and Blondie and music still on MTV her two kids in high school they tell her that she's uncool cause she's still preoccupied with 19 19 1985.” I obnoxiously sang.

“I don't think that lyric is St. Elmo's Fire.” Jason said through the door.

“It is. You're wrong. Bye now.”

“So you can hear me.”

“Please make this stop. Stop. Stop. And bring back Springsteen, Madonna, way before Nirvana, there was U2 and Blondie and music still on MTV. Her two kids in high school, they tell her that she's uncool cause she's still preoccupied with 1985.”

“Well just listen at least. Nicole I'm sorry for kissing you. I know it was wrong. And I'm glad you and Louis are back together. And so there's no awkwardness between us, I'm quitting.” Hearing that, I slowly opened the door seeing as how I wasn't really getting a shower.

“Jason. You can't quit. You saved my life.”

“It was unprofessional. I'm sorry. And saving your life, was my job.”

“Did Louis tell you to do this?”

“No. It's unprofessional to kiss my boss, and I'm going to be transferred to a different band.”

“Jason, you can't quit! You're my friend. And yeah, you kissed me, and if Louis and I hadn't of gotten back together I would have kissed you back. Jason, please stay. We understand each other!”

“Nicole I ca-”

“Jason. I won't let you quit.”

“Nicole. It's the only thing I can do. I've had feelings for you since I saved you in the elevator. And I don't have a chance. You are obviously in love with Louis. And it's not going to change.”

“That doesn't mean we can't be friends!”

“That's exactly what it means.”


“You don't even know me. What's my last name?”

“Jason...don't go there.”

“Exactly, you don't know me. Yet I know everything about you.”

“I'm famous, everyone knows everything about me.”

“I know that you won't eat radishes. And if they're in your salad you conventionally pick them out. Or if they're in your mix and it's too messy to pick them out, you close your eyes to pretend they aren't there. Tell me a fan who knows that.”

“Jason. Please don't quit. You're the only security guard who doesn't EVER make me want to punch something.”


“Kiss me. It's the only way you'll realize that you don't love me.”

“I'm no-”

“Wait. Don't kiss me. I think I love Louis. It's wrong to kiss you. But please.” By now tears had fallen from my eyes, I was literally begging Jason to stay.

“I can't. Goodbye Nicole. Thank you.” He said giving me a hug and then leaving.

“JASON!” I screamed. I saw him stop then continue walking.

“What the hell Nicole?” Virginia asked.

“Louis and I broke up yesterday over nothing, Jason and I got really close, he was the only one that knew about the break up, Louis and I got back together, I went to tell Jason, but Jason kissed me, I told Louis, Louis said he needs to go, I said no, Jason came to tell me he was quitting. I begged him not to. He said he had to because he's in love with me, I said kiss me so he knows he wasn't in love, but then I changed my mind and he left. ” I said all in one breath.

“Ok. Wow. Um..you broke up with Louis?”

“Yes. But it was stupid, and it was because I said he was smothering me and then we fought and broke up.”

“And you're back together?”


“And you told Jason, but not us?”


“And when you told Jason you and Lou broke up, he kissed you?”

“No. He kissed me when I went to tell Jason Lou and I made up.”

“Ok, and Jason's quitting why?”

“Because he thinks he's in love with me.”

“And you said?”

“That he's not.”

“Ok...” There was another knock on the door, Nic answered this time.

“Oh my God!” We heard her scream.

“What?” V and I asked running into the living area.

“Hey girls!” Josh, Austin, and Cody said in unison.

“Ahh!” We all screamed as we attacked our boys.

“What are you doing here?” I asked them. “Josh aren't you filming a movie?”

“Yes, but I can take two days off to visit my best friend!”

“Cody and Austin, aren't you guys touring?” V asked.

“What a great best friend you are!” Cody said laughing. “My tour doesn't start for another month.”

“Oh...” She said hanging her head.

“What about you Austin?” I said.

“I don't have shows for another week. A whole week off. I can't believe it.”

“What?! A week off?!” Nic shouted.

“Whoa calm yourself.” He said causing us all to laugh

“Well then!” She scoffed.

“So any way, Josh, we can go back to the sleep area if you want.”

“That sounds like you're making a proposition at me!” Josh said winking.

“Oh definitely! The second my boyfriend leaves!” I said laughingly.


“But for real, we have a lot to catch up on.” I said taking his hand.

“So spill then!”

“Ok so let's see. I was assaulted just over a week ago, Louis and I broke up, got back together, my security guard who saved my life kissed me, and he quit today. Just before you came actually.”

“Sounds like a rough week.”

“That was the Reader's Digest version.” I said laughing.

“So you and Lou are back together?”

“Yes!” I noticed a small frown creep on his face before breaking out into a smile.


“Josh... What was that frown about?”

Louis' POV

I walked into the tour bus and just waved to everyone. I had to wake up to take Niall and Harry to the airport, they had a signing, but I said I couldn't leave Nicole yet. I knew I would have to soon, I just wasn't ready. I walked back to the bedroom area where the door was shut.

“So you and Lou are back together?” I heard someone sounded like Josh say.



“Josh... What was that frown about?” I heard Nicole say.

“I just think you can do better.”

“Better than the man I've wanted since I was 16?”

“Nicole...I jus- Nevermind.”

“Josh, I haven't told him this yet, but I love him. I love him so much I didn't even know I could. I just can't explain it. The love I feel for you and the love I feel for Louis...it's just...just different. I can't explain.” When she said she loved me a big smile spread across my face. She loved me!

“Nicole, I love you.”

“What is with all the professions of love for me today?!” She said almost laughing.

“Nicole, I've loved you since I met you. And when you met Nick and instantly fell in love with him, I was heartbroken. And I always felt the need to tell you what you wanted to hear when it came with boys, but Nicole. I'm the one for you!” It took all the self control I had to not burst into that room right now.

“Joshua. I don't love you like that. You're my best guy friend, but that's all you'll ever be. And I'm sorry, but you'll never leave the friendzone. I'm glad that you were honest with me, but frankly, I wish you wouldn't have been. But Josh, it doesn't change any of my feelings for Louis. I'm so madly in love with him.”

“I don't know if I can sit around and watch him slowly break your heart.”


“No Nicole, I should be leaving.” And that was my cue to knock on the door.

“Come in.” I heard Nicole say.

“Hello there love!” I said kissing her cheek. “Josh.” I said nodding to him.

“Louis.” He said nodding back. “Now if you'll excuse me.” He said stepping out.

“Well that was weird.” I said before placing a small peck on her lips.

“He just proclaimed his love for me, as did Jason, who by the way, quit today.”

“Wow, big day for you.”

“Tell me about it.” She said with a small laugh.

“Hasn't he proclaimed his love for you before?”

“Yes, and I told him that I loved him like a brother, but I guess he thought maybe my feelings had changed. But I just don't know if things will ever be the same between us anymore.” She said looking sad.

“Well let's do something to get your mind off of it!” I said smiling.

“Lou I'm not having sex with four people in the next room.” She said laughing.

“I wasn't going to say that! Jeez you think I only have one thing on my brain...” I said laughing with her.

“Well what were you going to say?”

“Let's pull a few pranks on your band mates.” I said with a sinister smile.

“Such as?”

“Well you have a show tonight, so nothing too extreme...” I said laughing.

“Oh my, I think I should be scared.”


“Well then what were you planning?”

“You know me! I don't plan! I was thinking we'd make it up as we go.”

“That doesn't sound too good.” She said laughing.
