Waiting For Forever

The amazing journey continues as our five couples are back in college after their mid-term break and Christmas is just around the corner. Everything seems to be going well for the gang but underneath all the happy dappy the cracks are beginning to show. Each couple experiencing their own handful of difficulties, can they all pass through it? Can Liam and Felicity stay in contact, even though being over 400 miles apart? What happens when one loses contact? Or for Niall and Nicole, arguing constantly over the most stupid of things? Zayn and Audrey, working AND living together? Maybe it's time one of them moved out? Or Leah and Harry? When another guy shows up at their English class, does Harry get jealous? Or maybe it's Lorraine and Louis? Trying their best to bring everyone back together, racing against the clock. Maybe all the crumbling relationships around them is taking its toll on them too?


1. Life in London


Lorraine P.O.V

 “Nicole!! What did you with that baby pink skater dress that I let you borrow last weekend?” Leah shouted from her bedroom. “I gave it back to you, remember?” Nicole screamed back from hers. Welcome to my world. Living between the two messiest (but best ever) friends you could possibly have. My name is Lorraine, if you didn't already know that, and I live with my best friend from Ireland Leah and my other friend Nicole that I met in Paris last month. Yeah? Ring any bells? Paris? Love by Chance? I thought so! Well just in case, I’ll give you a little update on my life since then.

 We flew back from Paris on the last Friday of Mid-term. Nicole, Niall’s girlfriend moved into the spare room in our apartment on the 5th floor of Halltown. She’s studying to become a teacher in a place called Magnum Square just down the road! It’s so surprising how small this world is, it’s so unbelievable! Audrey moved in with Zayn across the bridge in a place called Smith’s Square, and those two are working for Vogue London. Liam since leaving Paris hasn't seen Felicity, his girlfriend studying Law in French. He’s been pretty down about it, not spending as much time with us like he usually does, and he’s definitely not himself. He spends most days skyping Felicity when she’s not studying. Then there’s Leah and Harry, happy as can be! Spending all their time together, walking to class, walking home from class, cuddling by the fire, going out to night-clubs, the whole package! And last but not least, there’s Louis and I, promised to get engaged in the near future, living life to the full and taking each and every day one at a time.

 It’s now the 30th of November, and tomorrow is the beginning of advent and the countdown to the most romantic time of the year. Oh, and not to forget my birthday is next week on the 9th, and Louis is the Eve of Christmas. (I’m planning a surprise birthday for him!) I’m looking forward so much to this Christmas, because everyone will be here together and happy! Felicity will be moving over as soon as she’s done her exams and hopefully Liam will cheer up again! I actually have to go out and buy everyone presents, or better yet! We’ll do secret Santa! I’ll mention it at dinner tonight, everyone is coming over to our place and yes, I’m cooking! That’s why Nicole and Leah are shouting around about some pink dress, because there getting ready for tonight! Me? I’m cooking right now, so I haven’t gotten a chance to doll-up! Ahhh! Life is so stressful!

 I’m cooking quiches just like we had Paris, the night that everyone got together for the first time in our Champs de Mars apartment with the amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. It was such a romantic evening, will never forget it! Harry and Leah did the quiches back then, but now I'm cooking my own version. It’s a vegetarian one because since last, I’ve decided to go off meat. It’s not because I'm an anti-cruelty to animals person, it’s really only because I don’t like the taste of it. That’s all. I'm also making a chicken and leek one for the others who are full-on carnivores, Niall, cough, cough, Niall. Ahhh, you just gotta love that child. Audrey recently lost a lot of weight. I think pressure from Vogue is taking a toll on her. I bet you that she’ll be eating the vegetarian version tonight.

 It’s now almost 6 o'clock and the quiches are in the oven, the different salads have been dressed and seasoned, the dinner table has been set, and the electric fire has been put on! Since coming back from Paris, Leah and I decided to do a small bit or redecorating on our tiny little apartment, just to make it a bit more modern looking! We ended up going all out, and now our place is incredible! The kitchen floor is now black tile, the counter is still black marble, the floor in our dining and sitting room is dark hardwood oak. The curtains in the sitting room on our huge window over-looking the river Thames is a light white colour, draping all the way to the floor, our television is now a nice flat screen (thanks to funds from our parents!) which you often have the guys over playing Fifa of Need for Speed on it. I painted my bedroom a violet colour, which makes it so much brighter! The sun shines through the huge window I have in the morning, really lighting up the room. I still have my gorgeous Tommy Hilfiger “All American Navy” bedcovers! I love them so much! And then the same white dressers and walk-in wardrobe. My en-suite is the same, basically all white. Leah did some small changes to her room, she painted the walls blue and installed a beige carpet. Nicole’s room is white and purple with a white carpet just like my room.

 I better go and get ready! I’m wearing a light blue flowery dress that goes to my knees, with a white cardigan. Nothing too casual, just comfortable. I bet you Leah is really going all out and dressing in 7 inch wedges! I’d actually be a bit concerned if she didn’t!


Louis P.O.V

“Liam! Are you coming over for dinner?” Niall shouted from his room. No reply. “Liam!”. Still no reply. “LIAM!!!” Niall shouted again. “I'm on Skype! And yes, I'll follow you over later!” Liam replied as he banged his door shut. Hello. My name is Louis Tomlinson, but I bet you a bounty bar that you already knew that! I just got a text from my girlfriend Lorraine a second ago, she wants me to go out and buy another bottle of red wine because she misplaced the first one she bought. How do you lose a bottle of wine? Well somehow my Lorraine is so intellectually gifted that she can, and that’s why I love her so much!

 Right now I'm in Liam and Niall’s apartment hanging out with Harry. The two of us were finished getting ready early enough that we decided to stop by at their place, just down the hall from ours. But seeming as the two of them are too busy getting ready and skyping, it just seems to be Harry and me here. “Harry, Lorraine needs me to go out and buy another bottle of wine. She lost the first one” I said to Harry. “Okay, I'm going to go over now. Maybe give them a hand with the food. Oh, and buy Shiraz, it’s the nicest” Harry said as we left Niall and Liam’s place. “Sure, if I can find it” I said back. We separated ways and I headed down to the lobby and out the twisty door. I love the twisty door! I walked down Belvedere road and went to the closest shop that I could find, bought the Shiraz wine and headed back up to the apartments. It was now twenty to 7.

When I arrived back at Lorraine, Leah and Nicole’s place everyone else was there chatting away. “Here’s the wine baby” I said giving Lorraine a kiss. “How'd you manage to misplace a bottle of wine, love?” I asked her as we walked into the kitchen. “I really don't know. It’ll turn up though!” she said with a giggle. “Hmmmm” I said mockingly. “What?” she asked back. “Nothing” I said teasing her now. “Hey! Tell me!!!” she said attempting to punch my shoulder and hurt me, but failing miserably. I pressed my lips onto hers, silencing her. I wrapped my arms around her, holding her up as she was completely blown away. She then wrapped her arms around my neck and we kept kissing passionately until Harry walks in. “Ahem” he said in a gruffly voice. “Sorry to interrupt anything, but I'm getting hungry. And so is Niall so we better get a move on!” he said. “Oh yeah” Lorraine and I said in tune starting to glow pink.

*Later that Evening*


Lorraine P.O.V

“So guys, as you all know, Christmas is coming up in a couple of weeks and I was thinking that we should do Secret Santa!” I announced when everyone had finished eating dinner and the table was cleared. “It would be a great way to get to know everyone that tiny little bit more, and hey? I’d be fun!” I said gleefully! “OMG, I think that would be an awesome idea!” Niall said encouragingly. “Yeah. Sure! Why not?” everyone else said in enthusiastic mumbles from all over the sitting room. “I’ll get some paper from my room and write all our names on it” Nicole said getting up from her chair and heading down the hall to her bedroom. Niall followed her.


 Nicole P.O.V

I went into my new bedroom down the hall and to the right, Niall right behind me. “Hey babe” he said as he closed the door behind me. “We haven't really had much alone time since you arrived here” he said in his sexy Irish accent. “Yeah, I've been so busy with settling in, spending time with the girls and studying” I said in a dreary voice whilst searching for a piece of paper in my bag, my back turned to Niall. Niall walked up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist. “Are you okay Nicole?” he asked me with a hint of upset in his voice. “Yeah, I'm fine. Or at least I will be. I just need some time” I said as I grabbed the first piece of paper I found and headed for the door. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just don’t have the time for my boyfriend lately. I just don’t.


Niall P.O.V

It’s been like this ever since arriving in London. Nicole has just gotten more and more distant with me. I just don't understand, in Paris we were inseparable, but now she doesn't have the time of day for me, let alone look me in the eye. I followed her slowly back into the sitting room where everyone was still gathered around chatting at the table and drinking hot chocolate. Zayn, Harry and Liam were relaxing back on the couch while watching a soccer match, England versus Spain. Spain was winning with 2 – 1. The rest of the girls, and Louis were talking. Nicole sat down next to Audrey and I sat down opposite her next to Louis. She didn't even look at me.


Lorraine P.O.V

“Okay! Guys come over here, I have it all ready!” I said once I had finished writing out all our names and had put them in a hat. “Harry you can go first!” I declared as soon as I managed to drag the guys away from the television screen and get their full attention. “Yay” Harry said playfully. He stuck is hand in the hat and picked out a strip of paper. He then looked at it and gave a mischievous smile. And so this went on until everyone had gotten a chance to take a note and find out who they'd be buying a Christmas present for. “Everyone happy so?” I asked when I had taken mine. I had picked out Niall’s name from the hat, and immediately already knew what I was going to buy him!

“Happy hunger-games and may the odds be ever in your favour!” Harry joked as everyone was leaving the apartment. “Goodnight guys! Thanks for coming!” I said happily. “Goodnight babe” Louis said whilst giving me a gorgeous kiss. “Goodnight Nicole” Niall said, not giving her a kiss, instead looking at the ground. “Goodnight Niall” Nicole replied, in a weak and upset tone. What’s up with those two?
