15. Let's Make A Toast

Diana's POV


I reluctantly stepped out of the shower and wrapped my body in a towel. Call me crazy but it smelled like Liam. I dried off my body and put my clothes on. I turned around and looked back at the reflection in the mirror. Of course never being pleased with what my eyes show me, I just huff and start brushing out my faded hair. I flip my head and start to scrunch my hair up with my hands over and over to try and create some type of texture.


I feel my stomach drop to my feet. I'm actually going through with this.


I didn't want to keep Liam waiting so I stepped out of the bathroom and found my way back to him. He seemed all ready to go wearing a white shirt with a blue plaid button up that was unbutton and dark jeans with some sneakers.


He smiled at me when I approached him and I think he could see through my nerves when he took my shaking hand into his and brought it up to his mouth for a kiss.


"Please don't be nervous. I wouldn't make you go if I didn't think these people were going to have a problem with you."


I closed my eyes and smiled. I need to do this. I have to face my fears sometime and meeting people is one of them.


"I know."


We walked out of his place hand in hand for the first time. My heart rate increased and my breathing was slightly irregular. I never want to let go. I don't think he realizes what he does to me.


We decided to walk to the little diner since it's only down the street. Right in front of the doors do I stop and pull away from Liam. He turned around and looked at me with confusion.


"Hey, if you really don't want to do this we don't have to. I won't make you if you're not comfortable."  He stepped closer to me and took my hand again. I sighed at the fact that I'm not pushing myself harder for the simplest things that other people can accomplish. This just really proves that I'm not even worth it.


"No it's fine. I'm fine. We can still do this." I gave him the best reassuring smile that I could put on hoping he won't see through it. He smiled back and we both walked inside.


There weren't that many people here and I was glad for that. The group of young adults in the back corner had caught my eye. I can only guess that that's whom I'll be acquainted with. One guy with curly hair had caught our eye and waved his arm in the air signaling for us to come to them. Liam waved back and I was soon walking behind him to the booth.


As we were getting closer I could get a clear view of who was present. The guy who waved at us had curly hair pushed up in a quiff with jade colored eyes. The girl next to him was beautiful with red hair and big brown eyes. My insecurities started to kick in. The couple across from them looked like the common couple you'd see in a setting like this. The guy had blonde hair and brown roots with clear blue eyes and his mistress had black hair as dark as night with contrasting green eyes that could capture anybody in an instant.


They made room for us, the rather odd couple. I felt so out of place that I just wanted to crawl under the table and never leave. Unfortunately, that wasn't an option.


"Liam! Glad you could make it. And Diana, nice to meet you properly." Said the one with the mop of curls. He held out his hand for me to shake as I displayed a look of confusion. Liam leaned into me near my ear.


"I'll explain later." He whispered. I just nodded his way and turned my attention back to the charming lad who continued to introduce everyone.


"I'm Harry, one of Liam's good friends and this here is Scarlett, my girlfriend." I turned my head towards her and she gave me a warming smile and held out her hand.


"Hi. Nice to meet you." I just gave her a tight smile and nodded my head slowly. I was trying. I really was.


"And this over here is Niall with Kriss." I turned my head to the couple on the other side of us.


"Nice to meet you." An Irish accent filled my eardrums.


Soon everybody was engaged in conversation and I felt like waste of space at that point. Liam and his friends were talking about school, something I couldn't exactly relate to. Scarlett and Kriss's conversation inclined to sports, another subject I couldn't take part in.


In a way I was glad that no attention was averted to me. I was never good under the spotlight anyways.


Soon they stopped talking and Harry lifted his glass up about to announce something.


"Let's make a toast." He said.


"In a diner?" Liam asked with slight amusement.


"Sure, why not?"


Liam decided to play along and lifted his drink up too.


"What should we make it about?"


"To us." Harry said motioning to everybody here.


"To us." Liam repeated while looking in my eyes. I was caught in a trance as I held his gaze and he held mine. I had to ask myself if there was anybody around us because in that moment, it didn't feel like it. As cliche as it sounds, it was true. My imagination was shot down when I heard Niall speak.


"To Life!" He mocked.


Yeah. Life.





So I'm thinking a couple more chapters till this story wraps up! I'm excited and sad all at the same time and unfortunately I don't think that there will be a sequel. There might be, I'm not sure yet. Just stick with me here! And thank you guys all for the awesome comments you guys are leaving. Thank yourselves too because y'all are the reason why I update!
