17. The "L" Word

Harry's P.O.V.
   "What do you want to watch?" I asked looking through Dee's film collection.
   "I don't care." Lydia shrugged. I looked at her and gave her a disapproving look. She was huddled in the corner of the couch, wrapped in a blanket. I made her change into comfy clothes when we got to her flat. She hadn't put her hair up, so it rested on her shoulders, draping off them. Her face was getting tired, and I could start to see her freckles. She was so cute like that. She laughed at my look.
  "Ok!" She gave in, "Uh, Star Wars?" She suggested. I chuckled to myself and started looking for the film, "What's so funny?" She asked.
   "It's just that when we were in primary school, that's all you seemed to want to watch. All the time!" I laughed.
   "Did not!" She pouted, folding her arms.
   "Did too!" I argued, "And you always wanted to watch A New Hope!"
   "No!" She shook her head.
   "Oh, so you don't want to watch A New Hope?" I raised an eyebrow at her.
   She was silent for a moment before speaking, "I never said that." She said quietly.
   "Of course not," I chuckled. I popped the disk in and went back to the couch. I pulled Lydia so she was laying on my chest. As the movie started, she would rub her head with every loud sound.
   "I didn't give you your medication yet!" I realized. I jumped off the couch and ran into the kitchen.
   "No Harry!" She whined from the couch, "It makes me sleepy!"
   "That's not necessarily a bad thing!" I said back. I found the bottle and read the directions. One tablet every 8 hours. I checked the clock. It had been a little over the limit. I poured out a tablet and retrieved a  glass of water. I walked into the front room to find Lydia back in the corner of the couch.
   "I don't want to go to sleep yet!" She continued to whine, "I want to stay awake and spend time with you."
   "Well, then I'll keep you awake, how's that?" I offered. I held out the tablet and glass of water. Her nose wrinkled in response. It was adorable, "Please, Love?" I begged. She looked at me for a moment, and her face softened up. She sighed snatching the tablet out of my hand and throwing it in her mouth. She grabbed the glass of water out of my hand and gulping most of it down. I laughed and put the glass on the coffee table. I sat back down and Dee fell on my chest again. I grabbed the remote and pressed play. Through out the movie, I made conversation with her, to try and keep my promise. Poor girl tried so hard to stay awake, until finally, she couldn't take it anymore. I looked down at her, asleep on my chest. I could do this every day, I thought to myself. This just confirmed my feelings. I couldn't hold them in any longer. I needed to tell her how I felt.

Lydia's P.O.V.
   I was drifting in and out of consciousness. These damn pills. I cursed Harry in my mind, while fighting to keep awake. I finally gave up. I closed my eyes and let myself fall asleep.
   "Lydia?" A voice said quietly. I didn't open my eyes. I pretended to be still asleep, "Dee?" It was Harry's voice. Definitely not waking up for him. I heard the movie still going on in the background, so I hadn't been asleep for long. Suddenly the movie stopped. I felt myself being lifted an carried up the stairs. Soon, I reached my bed. I felt the covers being lifted on put on me. I then felt him leave my side. I moaned and reached out for him. I heard his laugh, as he got into bed with me, pulling me closer to him. He wrapped me in his arms and I tried to go back to sleep.
   "Lydia, I can't imagine being with anyone else- no! Stupid!" I was awoken again by Harry's voice, "Dee, you are amazing and beau- No, too corny." He was getting frustrated at himself. I heard him sigh and felt him kiss my forehead, "I just love you, ok?" He whispered. Love? He felt that way about me too? My heart skipped beats and I cuddled up closer to him.
   "I love you too, Harry." I said sleepily. I felt him stiffen for a moment, and then chuckle.
   "Goodnight, Dee."

 

Niall's P.O.V.
   What a party! Everyone was having so much fun! Louis and El announced their engagement and no one could be happier for them. It was about time. Nicki stuck with me the whole night. She ended up having a few drinks, and becoming completely drunk. It was her first time drinking, since the age limit in America was 21.  And she had a blast. We were dancing until she dashed off.
   "Nicki?" I followed her. I found her hunched over a toilet, emptying her stomach. I chuckled to myself and held her dark hair for her.
   "N-never drinking a-a-agin." She slurred, sitting up. She stood up and washed her mouth out with water, and pulled out some gum from her pocket. She threw it in her mouth and turned to me, "I'm s-so sorry." She apologized.
   "Why?" I chuckled.
   "I just threw up in front of you," she frowned, wobbling a bit, "that wasn't polite."
   "Ok," I laughed. I went to her side, grabbing her waist, "Lets go get you settled in my room, ok?"
   She nodded. I led her up the stairs into Louis' guest room that I was staying in. She immediately fell on the bed, throwing off her shoes. I lied next to her, and cradled her in my arms. I sent a text to Lydia, letting her know that Nicki would be staying with me tonight.
   "Niall?" Nicki called.
   "I'm right here, Princess." I chuckled.
   "Princess," she repeated and studied the word for a minute, "I like that." She smiled at me.
   "Well, good!" I smiled back.
   "Niall, I like you." She said, closing her eyes.
   "I like you too." I smiled at her, "That's kinda why you're my princess."
   "Don't tell Niall, but he's always been my favorite of One Direction." She was clearly very drunk. I nodded and let her continue, "His voice is the best in my opinion. He needs more solos." She pouted, "I went through a tough break up about a month ago," she said quietly, "Can you keep a secret?" She said to me, keeping her eyes closed. I nodded and she continued, "I love Niall. Like, in love with him." She admitted, "But don't tell him! Because it's too soon! I'm not supposed to love him yet!" She worried, "but I do. Just, don't tell him." That was the first thing she said, before passing out in my arms.
   I thought about her words. I hadn't loved anyone since Jennifer. And I just got over her before I met Nicki. I felt myself falling for her, no matter how much I tried to be cautious. I looked at her asleep in my arms, an i could see us having a future. It was too late. I had fallen. I loved her.
