Red Flag

Carter Thompson is a 15 year old girl that has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since her parents got divorced. All she wants is to kick her feet up with her two best friends Jacob and Blake. But when her Dad remarries another woman, she is forced to leave her North Carolina life behind and join links with her new family. Dreading the move, she meets her oh-so familiar looking stepbrother, not having a clue he's adored by many young girls across the globe. Harry asks her to come on tour with him, and his band mates, and since then her life has chosen the path consisting of ups-and-downs. As she gets to know the boys as well as Harry, she finds herself falling for one of the boys without really knowing it, along this crazy new life. Throughout the story, she starts realizing that maybe it was worth the move after all.


31. Can you feel the love tonight…



Niall’s POV


The lads and I thought it was starting to get a little cold, so we got climbed out of the pool and headed to the hot tub. “Do you want to join us Carter?” Harry asked her. "No thanks, I’m gonna chill in here.” She responded to him while falling onto her back in the water. We climbed into the hot water one by one.


It was almost one in the morning now and the lads decided that it was time to go up to bed. Carter was still in the pool floating on her back so I told Harry that I would get her. All the lads grabbed their towels and made their way back to their rooms. I climbed out of the hot water and slowly made my way into the pool. I started making my way over to Carter’s floating body. I stood over her for a minute admiring how peaceful she looked. I decided to ruin her peace by forcefully pushing her stomach so she was underwater. She stayed under water for a few seconds, and I chuckled a little as she popped her head out of the water and looked up at me. I stared into those cute hazel eyes of hers for a couple seconds, admiring the way she looked at me. She stood up from the water looking over to where the lads once where, then she looked back up to me and was about to say something. I cut her off by putting my lips on hers. I don't know what came over me, but it seemed as if I wasn't in control over myself. The second my lips touched hers, my heart just about bursted. Her eyes opened widely from shock, but then she closed them gently. I slowly started to wrap my arms loosely around her waist while she put her hands on top of my shoulders. My chest was so close to hers that I could feel her heart racing. Fireworks were exploding inside of my head as we pulled away after a minute and I rested my head on hers. “I fancy you Carter.” I told her. She gave me a small smile and looked down blushing. I put my hand under her chin and lifted her face up making her look at me. I leaned my head down against hers and smiled. “Will you be my girlfriend?” I asked her. She looked up into my eyes and smiled. “I would love to." Her voice quivered from shock. I hugged her wet body tightly. “Where did everyone else go?” She asked shyly, as we pulled away slowly from the hug and her face red. “They all went up to bed. Which I should get you up to bed as well.” I told her. I picked her up bridle style and started to make my way out of the cold water. “It’s cold.” She shivered. I put her down by the table that had our towels on it and wrapped one around her. I wrapped a towel around myself. I picked her up again and made my way to our rooms. “You know I can walk, right?” She whispered sweetly to me. “I know, but a princess deserves to be treated like one.” I told her softly as she rested her head on my chest, smiling with rosy cheeks. 


*Next Day*


I woke up and smiled to myself as I thought of the events that happened last night. I climbed out from the warm blanket-covered bed and made my way in to the bathroom to start my day. After finishing in the bathroom, I walked over to my suitcase and pulled out a pair of basket shorts, a white t-shirt, and a black sweat shirt. After getting dressed I grabbed my phone and my room key then made my way out into the hallway. I started to make my way to the elevator when I heard one of the doors open and close. I turned around and saw Carter walking out of her and Harry’s room. She turned around and saw me looking at her. She smiled and I saw her cheeks turn a light pink color. “Good morning princess.” I said as she walked up to me. “Good morning.” She giggled and her face immediately turned pink. I leaned over and pecked her cheek. She had her hair pulled back into a ponytail and she was wearing a light blue Nike shirt that said ‘You’re Late… First Is Taken’ on it. She had on black shorts along with some Nike Free shoes.

We were sitting in the lobby eating our breakfast when Harry walked down. “Good morning.” He said while yawning. “Morning.” Carter said, not paying attention while taking a bite of her bagel. Harry walked over to the buffet. I then turn to Carter. “How should we tell him?” I asked her. “Ummm… I don’t know. You’ve known him longer, how should we tell him?” She said looking at me. I just shrugged my shoulders and looked down at my plate of food. “Maybe we should just leave little hints that we like each other when we’re around him.” She said, looking over to where Harry was standing. “Okay, that could work.” I nodded. Harry soon walked over with a plate of food and a banana in hand. “Where are we off to tonight?” Carter asked looking from me to Harry right as he walked up. “Well we have our show tonight, then we are off to… Charlotte?” Harry asked looking over to me. “Yeah, I believe so.” I said answering him. We looked over at Carter who had the biggest smile on her face. “Are you all right?” Harry asked her. “Oh yeah, yeah I’m amazing!” She said back, bouncing lightly in her chair. “I think you mean amazayn.” Harry corrected her with a smile on his face. “What?” She asked looking at him with the cheekiest confused face ever. (*Please forgive me if I’m using 'Cheeky' the wrong way, I’m not British... or Irish... or European. Hahaha*) “So why are you so smiley?” I asked her. “We’re going to Charlotte!” she exclaimed as her eyes twinkled with delight. “You’ve been there?” Harry asked her. “Heck yeah! I had lived there ever since my parents got divorced!” She yelled silently.


After we had finished eating, we walked back up to our rooms to get our bags and head for the buses. As we all climbed aboard, we chose that we would all just chill at the back of the bus. When I sat down on the couch I pulled Carter down on my lap before she could sit anywhere else. “I was going to sit by you.” She whispered to me. “But I wanted you to sit on my lap.” I whispered into her ear. She just giggled and blushed a light pink color. “You know you look really cute when you blush.” I whispered in her ear again. That caused an even pinker color to crawl up onto her cheeks, which made me smile. “What’s going on with you two?” Louis asked looking at us, furrowing his eyebrows. “What do you mean?” Carter asked. “Well, you are blushing like crazy, and you never blush!” He said back to her. Carter just blushed again and tried to hide her face in my neck/shoulder. I rubbed her back and kissed her head lightly. “Can you feel the love tonight…” Louis started singing. I just looked at him and started laughing. It reminded me about how much Carter liked Disney movies. Zayn and Liam soon joined in on Louis’ singing. Harry then came dancing into the room.
