25. Dare or Dare?

Carter’s POV


I have been thrown for the past ten minutes. No one has dropped me yet meaning that my hair is somehow still dry, besides the tips. Ashton was throwing me to Luke, but Zayn and Liam splashed him making me fall into the water. I came back up, gasping for air. “Sorry.” Luke said when I came back up. I just started laughing. “It-it’s f-fi-fine!” I managed to get out while laughing. “Let’s play Chicken!” Michael said. “Okay!” I yelled. “I’m playing with Niall!” I yelled again. Niall just laughed then waded himself over to where I was standing. Zayn was with Liam, Harry and Louis, Ashton and Luke, Calum and Michael, then Niall and I. That’s what we decided for the teams. Niall went under water then the next thing I knew I was sprung into the air, on top of his shoulders. Zayn was on Liam, Louis on Harry, Luke on Ashton, and Calum on Michael. “Okay losers have to do whatever the winners want for a week.” Harry said, an evil smile running across his face. I looked down at Niall then back up to Harry. “Sounds good to me.” I said. There was no way I was going to lose this. “One-two-three!” Louis yelled really fast. I leaned down and whispered to his, “Back up.” He looked up at me then did what I said. We stayed back and watched the others battle. Soon the Harry and Louis were the last ones standing. “Ha! We win!” Louis yelled. “Not so fast sugar plum.” Harry then turned around so they where facing us. “Hi.” I said while doing a little wave at them. “Are you kidding me!” Louis said, throwing his arms in the air. Niall then walked up to them and I pushed Louis off of Harry’s shoulders. “When you’re in a battle never lose focus, Louis.” I said to him. ”You can get off of Niall’s shoulders now you know, right?” Louis said, trying to change the subject. “But I like this height!” I complained. I did really like the height that I got when I was on Niall’s shoulders. Someone then pushed Niall from behind making him and I fall into the water. Niall stood up from the water but I remained under. I swam over to the person who pushed us and it turned out to be Luke. I jumped up and yelled, “HI!” into his ear. He screamed and fell into the water. “How the heck did you know it was me!” He said when he came back up. “Simple. You are the only one that was behind where Niall was standing.” I said while shrugging my shoulders. We messed around in the water for the next  hour.


We all got out of the pool and went over to the hot tub. We settled down a bit and everyone was just chatting. “This is boring.” Louis whined. “Well, lets play a game then.” Liam said. “How about truth or dare!” Zayn said. “Okay, I’ll go first!” Louis yelled. “I dare…” He looked around at everyone, when his eyes landed on me. “I dare Carter to go and jump into the other pool.” “That's easy.” I got out of the pool and over to the bigger pool. I walked to over to the edge and jumped in. I quickly got out and went back into the hot tub. “Still easy?”  “I have a brother and all my friends are boys, that was relaxing.” I said to him. “Okay my turn!” Ashton said.


We where still playing truth or dare and I haven’t picked Louis yet at all and I could tell that he was getting a little antsy. It was my turn to pick my victim again. This time I had the best idea ever. “Louis dare or dare.” “What! I don’t get to choose!?” “Nope.” Everyone was trying to hold in their laughter. “Fine, dare.” I got this evil smile on my face. I climbed out of the hot water and grabbed a towel. “Well come on you can’t do the dare down here.” Everyone then got out of the pool and followed me. I made a quick little stop in the lobby and grabbed, a banana, orange, apple, pear, and a grape juice. “So who’s room would you like to do your dare in?” I asked him. “Um, my room?” “Okay, let’s go.” We went to his and Niall’s room. Once we got in I walked over to the little kitchen and pulled out the little blender that was in there. I poured in the juice, then put in the banana, orange, apple and pear in without taking off the peals. I then put the lid on and blended it all together. I poured some into a glass and handed him the glass. “Bottoms up.” I said to him. He just stared at it for a minute then took it. He looked at what the glass held in it. “Do I have to drink it?” “Well, it’s either drink it or put it on your face and leave it on for a week. You pick.” I said to him. Everyone was laughing at this point. “Come on! Really! A week?” “You’re right. Two weeks sounds better.” I nodded towards him. “TWO WEEKS?” His voice rose high. “What? That’s nothing compared to what I had to do one time.” I winked at him. “Do I even want to know what you had to do?” “Most likely no, you don’t want to know…” Louis then looked at Harry. “You lot are just gonna make me do this? I'm very disappointed in you all!” He pretended to cry. “Hey, we don't have control over her.” Niall said while trying to hold in his laugh. Louis looked at everyone else and then turned to me. “Remember, bottoms up.”  “I know!” He then took the glass and took it to his lips. He drank all the contents in the glass and set it back down on the counter. He looked up at me then ran to the bathroom. I walked in behind him and rubbed his back. “That wasn’t to hard now was it.” He just looked at me then stuck his head back in the toilet. After he finished in the bathroom we all just chilled in there till we all decided that it was time for bed. “Harry if you want you can stay with Louis. He still doesn’t look the best still.” I told him. “Okay, will you be ok if Niall stays with you then?” “Yeah, Harry.” I walked over to Louis and gave him a hug. “Sorry, I didn’t think it would affect you so badly.” He gave a small smile.


Niall and I walked to the room that Harry and I stayed in last night. When we got in the room I grabbed my pjs then walked into the bathroom. Once I got changed I walked out to see Niall standing in his boxers. “Sorry.” I said looking away. “Don’t worry about it.” He said in a weird accent, while pulling up a pair of sweat pants. He climbed into the bed that was closer to the little kitchen. I smiled to myself,  then climbed into the same bed and snuggled into him. “Are you okay?”  “Yeah just fine. Just want to snuggle.” I said to him. “Okay.” He then kissed my head. I soon fell into a peaceful sleep with a smile on my face.


~Hey quick little note, I'm going to change her brothers name to Zack so it's less confusing with Luke from 5sos in the story now.~
