36. Mouths and Eyes Wide Open

Carter’s POV


I had woken up for my nap and looked around. I was back in the hotel. I had this feeling like someone was watching me. Turning my head to the left, I saw Niall peering at me. “Hi, how are you feeling princess?” He asked. “Hi, I’m all right.” I said while stretching out my body like a cat. Haha, a "cat". Niall started chuckling at me. I gave him a confused look. “I see why they really call you ‘Cat’” He chuckled out. I just looked at him for a minute. "Is it because I'm as cute as a kitten?" I smiled at him jokingly. "Of course." He smiled while standing up and walking over to me. He sat down right beside my body. I turned my head to the side, but he put his hand under my chin and made me look at him. We stared into each others eyes, He slowly started to lean down. He smoothed my hair out and  whispered "Kitty-cat" before closing the gap that was left between us. It felt like we where the only ones on the earth. Sadly, he pulled away too soon for my liking. We looked into each other's eyes. Our eyes were broken from each other when we heard what sounded like someone tripping. We looked to the hallway and saw Harry laying on the floor. "Hi!" He said enthusiastically laying on the floor looking up at us. "Hi?" Niall and I said at the same time. “So… Uh.. How long as this been going on?” Harry asked, letting a smile sprawl across his face and standing up casually. “Since the night of the award show.” I shrugged, looking over at Niall then at Harry. “Oh nice!” He smirked. "Don't get too close now." He said and me and Niall just laughed. "Who wants to play FIFA?" Harry said, obviously starting to feel awkward in this situation. I gave Niall a confused look, he looked at me, then got up and joined Harry.


The three of us were sitting on the sofa, well I was laying on the sofa, facing the television. I watched as the two boys sticking their tongues out of their mouths, concentrating, as they tried to beat each other. I watched them finish the game, Niall with 2 and Harry with 3. Niall rolled onto the floor causing Harry and I to laugh. I grabbed the controller from beside Niall. “Okay so who’s gonna play me?” I asked while propping myself up. Harry and Niall traded looks then Harry raised his hand. “Right. Bro vs. Sis it is then.” I gave a sinister smile and  turned my attention back to the television screen. “Hope you’re ready to have your butt kicked.” I said while nudging my elbow against his arm. “Like that’s going to happen.” Harry said confidently while mirroring what I just did. “Don’t worry I’ll take it easy on you.” Harry whispered and gave a wink. “Oho, no. I think it is I that should be taking it easy on you.” I replied back and cackled. "Oh I see how it is." Harry scrunched his nose while keeping his eyes in contact with mine. Niall came over and sat behind me with his legs on either side of me. He wrapped his arms softly around my waist and pulled me down into his chest. Harry started to set up our game and soon we started.


Our game came to an end, too soon for my liking. Harry had scored 2 goals against me, and I had scored 6 goals against him. I put the controller on the coffee table then turned towards them. Both Harry and Niall had their mouths and eyes wide open which caused me to laugh at them. “Close you mouths boys, don’t want to catch flies do we?” I said. I put the controller back on the table. “What are we going to play now?” I asked. I looked at both of the boys. They still had their mouths and eyes wide open. I just rolled my eyes at them. I felt my stomach started to growl. I looked at the two jaw-dropped boys, then decided that I will have to get to the kitchen on my own. I started to push my body off the sofa and into a standing position. I was balancing on my good foot while my bad was hovering over the ground. I was hopping my way to the kitchen, which took longer then expected. I hobbled to the fridge grabbing myself a water bottle. Then hobbling over to grab a bag of chips. I hopped up onto the counter and unscrewed the bottle of water. Letting the cool water run down my throat relaxing my body. I put the cap back on the bottle and opened the chip bag. I had a few chips before I had another sip of water. Before I knew it, I heard feet stomping and voices yelling. I jumped off the counter only landing on my good foot. I closed the bag of chips and put them back. I grabbed my water and started hopping back out to the other room. With every hop I took the voice got louder. “WHERE’S CARTER!? IS SHE OKAY?!” I heard a voice yell over and over again. I opened the door and saw the three boys, with Louis yelling at Harry and Niall. I waved at the boys and they waved back. After a few seconds Louis stopped yelling at them and looked over at me again. He ran over and pick me up, throwing me over his shoulder. “Why would you ever run away like that? Never do that again, you hear me!” He said while hitting my bum. “Louis!” I whined while squirming in his arms. “Tell me. Why did you ran away?!” He said. “First, I didn’t ran away, I was in the kitchen. Second, I was hungry so I went TO the kitchen to get something to eat!” I said. I started to squirm even more as I wanted to be put down. "Please put me down now." I said to Louis, but he just shook his head back and forth. He started spinning around in circles and I felt as though I was about to throw up. "LOUIS STOP! IM GOING TO BE SICK!" I yelled. He came to a holt and sat me down. I always hated how I could get motion sickness so easily. "Are you okay? I didn't mean to make you sick. Sorry love." Louis said while getting on his knees in front of me. "I'll be fine Lou. It's okay." I  reassured him. I laid back down on the sofa putting my head in Niall's lap. I closed my eyes to help calm me down a little. I heard Zayn ask who had scored the six goals. It was quiet so I opened my eyes and saw three boys standing there with there mouths wide open. Oh how this looked so familiar. I moved my head so I would be looking up at Niall. "Niall, can you help me get to the bed?" I asked while sitting up. "Sure babe." He stood up and held out his hands for me. Gladly I put my smaller hands in his bigger ones, and he helped pull me off the sofa. I put my hand over his shoulder and he gave me a weird, but adorable look. "What?" I asked confusion coming over me. "What are you doing? You are not walking." "I wasn't going to walk silly." I said poking his nose. "I was going to hop." I continued. He just shook his head looking down at the ground. "You're not going to hop either." He said looking me straight in the eyes. I swear, it was as if  he was looking right into my soul. I gave him another confused look which made him chuckle. He swooped me up into a bridle style and started walking over to where the bed resigned.


We reached the bed faster than we ever would with me hopping along. Niall sat me down on the bed ever so carefully, that the second my body touched the bed I felt like I could just fall asleep right there and then. Niall carefully pulled the covers up to my chin. "There you go." He said. He placed a soft kiss on cheek, then to my head. He started to make his way out of the room. "Niall, will you stay with me?" I asked before he made it out of the room. He walked back over but this time going to the opposite side of the bed. "Anything for you." He said softly. He laid down and I moved as close as I could to him, cuddling into his side. Niall placed a light kiss to my head once again. That was the last thing I remember before falling asleep to the sound of his beating heart.
