Paisley's POV



We all decided to celebrate a great concert like Niall said but we just decided to go midnight bowling instead of a club because most of us were underage to get in a club here.  Me and Louis continued our random conversation in the car.  He is seriously one of the sweetest and funniest person I've ever met.  Niall certainly didn't lie when he said we were a lot a like, we like a lot of the same things and have great comebacks, although there are differences with us it just makes for more conversation.


We pulled up to the late night bowling alley and jumped over each other just to get out of the concert.  I have no worries tonight and that's a first!  Louis and the boys make me forget everything that has hurt me.

As everyone else ran inside Louis stayed behind to make sure I was okay, I gave him a small genuine smile and told him its perfect.  Louis and I we taking our time to walk inside, our hands brushed up against each other several times before he took my hand into his.  We both looked at our hands at the same time which cause a blush to creep to my cheeks.


My embarrassment soon faded when Louis started swinging our hands around like the crazy person he is.  I laughed and went along with swinging until we walked inside which caused him to quickly drop my hand and step a little bit away from me.  A frown found its way to my face when this happened.  Why did he do that? No one even saw us.  I know he doesn't like me like that and never will but he is now acting like I'm some crazy stranger you don't want to be near.  So much for no worries for the rest of the night.


I rushed over to the shoe counter and rented a pair. I pranced over to the group trying to mask my disappointment but of course freaking Niall and Paige can see straight through my façade.  They give me the look say that we will talk about it later, I just nod wanting for this night to end.  I know I'm over reacting but my life isn't all sunshine and rainbows right now.  I just wish that I actually was happy and loved.


The night actually went by pretty fast, I kind of avoided Louis as much as possible but either way he didn't make an effort to speak to me.  Zayn ended up wining the game followed by Paige, Liam, Louis, Harry, Niall and then me.  I'm usually pretty good at bowling but I'm just out of it tonight.


We all decided it was time to leave and Paige and I insisted that Niall needs to stay with the guys because we need a girls night.  Paige exchanged numbers with everyone as well as I did.  She hugged everyone and I hugged everyone except for Louis.  I went to hug him and act like nothing was wrong but he just stuck his hand out for a hand shake. 


I quickly shook his hand before running to the car trying to stop myself from crying a river.   I was able to hold it in until Paige got in the car a drove off.  She looked at me out of the corner of her eye while still watching the road.


"Sweetheart, what happened?  Why are you so upset?" Paige questioned me.  I sniffled before answering, "I don't know, I never liked someone this much nor had so much in common with anyone.  We get a long really well and I thought he liked me as a friend at least but its obvious he doesn't.  We randomly started holding hands in the parking lot and swinging them around like retards.  Then once we stepped inside he dropped my hand and walked away from me not even giving me a second look.  He wouldn't look at me or talk to me the rest of the night and instead of hugging me like everyone else he just shook my hand.  I just don't know what to think.", I rambled on about the whole issue.


"Paisley, I need you to listen to me.  He probably is just going through stuff too,  he might be nervous around Niall? I honestly don't know but you need to dry your tears so their is still some left for The Last Song, Okay?", just Paige saying this cheered me up.  Maybe she's right, maybe its just that he is nervous to  hug me around Niall and stuff.  All I know is that I need to text him.


I texted Louis asking if he was okay tonight,  as I was waiting for a response I was broken out of my own little world by a high pitched scream and a pair of head lights coming straight towards us......
