19. Party Shenanigans

*Jess' POV*

I excused myself from the conversation with one of Katie's grandparents, well I was more standing around in the background whilst Katie had a conversation, and I started to walk over to Liam.  He saw me approaching him and got up from his seat and walked out to the backyard. I tried my hardest to follow him amongst the crowd of his family members. I was determined to find out what was wrong with him.

 

*Liam's POV*

Seriously Jess  I thought. As I wound a path through some of my cousins I headed outside to the backyard, peeking over my shoulder to see if Jess was still behind me. I can't believe she's doing that. It was actually one of my strategies I used over the years to make sure she didn’t keep things bottled up. I knew if she kept stuff hidden long enough it would drive her crazy and she'd snap so I made sure she'd tell me what was on her mind. It was an annoying strategy, but it worked.

 

*Jess' POV*

I couldn't believe how much more people there were outside. Liam would be long gone by the time I found him. I looked  around when I saw a glimpse of his plaid shirt going behind the trees down the side of his house.

 

*Liam's POV*

Trying to catch my breath, I hid in a small alley down the side of my house and sat behind the stack of logs. I held my head in my hands.

"Jeez Liam pull yourself together" I mumbled to myself.

Here I was hiding behind my house trying to avoid talking to Jess. She knew something was up and that I'd be forced to tell her sooner or later.

"Liam?" a feint voice whispered. "LIAM?!" the whisper got louder as it got closer. "I know you're here"

I didn't say a thing as the voice got closer. I saw Jess' head peeking over the logs and sat down next to me.

 

"So are you gonna tell me what's wrong? Or am I gonna have to beat it out of you?" she said as threatening as she could balling her fists together. Her attempt to seem tough made me laugh. She nudged me and smiled.

"Noth.." I started to say.

"Jeez Liam cut the crap I know something's up!" there was a brief silence between us as she grabbed my hand. "Look, I know things have been a little different since...us.. but I will tell you now a hundred times until I'm blue in the face and it becomes imbedded in your stubborn brain that you can come to me for anything no matter what. I hate seeing you upset or frustrated. You and I know each other better than anyone, and I can tell when you're hiding things. Wasn't it always you who told me that 'it's worse keeping things bottled up, sooner or later it will get to you'?"

 

I nodded.

"But Jess, what I might say might change things"

"So? What are you afraid of?"

"I'm afraid things won't be the same after!"

"What's this about Li? Are you in trouble?"

"No I'm not in trouble. If I just lay everything out on the line and nothing happens then I'll be wrecked. Do you know how hard it is for me to try and even think of how to tell you?" my voice raised a little. I was getting so frustrated, I wanted to tell her but it was completely obvious that there was something between her and Louis and she was so happy. I'd never want to ruin her happiness.

 

"Tell me what!?" Jess stood up brushing chipped pieces of wood off her. I stood up immediately after quickly put my hand to the back of her head and pulled her in as our lips crashed together. I could tell she was shocked, her body was all stiff and rigid. As I kissed her the thought of her not wanting me consumed my mind, that was until I could feel her relax in my arms as I felt her starting to kiss me back. My hands ran down to the small of her back as she wrapped her arms around my neck. I felt like a lousy friend, but it felt so good having Jess back in my arms again.

 

*Jess' POV*

As I relaxed in Liam's hold, our kiss deepened as he slid his  tongue into my mouth. We quickly pulled away from each other when we were startled by the sound of the doorbell.

"LIAM WOULD YOU GET THAT?" Katie's voice travelled from the backyard.

"Shit" he murmured. We found the door at the side of the house and it was thankfully unlocked and quickly went inside. I grabbed Liam's hand so that I wouldn't lose him and followed close behind as we passed everyone in the kitchen. Finally free from the crowd, walking down the hallway Liam hadn't let go of my hand instead held my hand tighter and laced his fingers into mine.  I missed being like this with Liam.

 

Liam opened the door with me by his side and I went into complete shock. What the hell was he doing here? No wonder why Katie told me to dress extra special tonight.

 

"Hey guys!" His voice cheery.

I instantly let go of Liam's hand hoping that Louis didn't notice

"Hey mate come on in" Liam said as happily as he could, but I could hear a tone of disappointment in his voice. 

What am I meant to do? Pretend what happened between Liam and I never happened? 

Louis kissed me on the cheek and proceeded to hug me.

 

"You look stunning Jess" Louis said as he pulled away from the hug sending butterflies throughout my stomach.

"Hey what about me" Liam said posing trying to lighten the mood.

We all laughed a little, but then it went silent. The mood was tense as we exchanged glances.

Thankfully Katie came skipping around the corner (something she normally does when she has a little too much to drink) and intervened what would have been an extremely awkward silence as I kept looking back at Liam and Louis . 

 

"Doesn't my little Jessica look beautiful Louis?" She said not so subtly, slightly slurring her words.

I saw Liam from the corner of my eye rolling his eyes as he pushed past Katie and into the kitchen away from us. 

Louis put his hand on my lower back as we walked to the backyard getting a drink along the way. 

 

*Liam's POV*

My heart sank when Jess quickly let go of my hand at the sight of Louis. I tried not to look disappointed. Everything had just fallen into place with Jess and now I have to pretend that nothing ever happened for Louis' sake. I didn't want to backstab him the way Zayn did to me.

 

*Jess' POV*

Since Louis got here, Liam had avoided us both. Way to make it not obvious Liam I thought to myself.

Katie, Melissa, Brandon, Louis and I sat outside on the porch swings. Melissa and Brandon were Katie's cousins roughly the same age as us.

As Katie and her cousins were talking about some family gathering, Louis had wrapped his arm around my waist as we sat swinging on the chair.

"Did you want to go somewhere else?" Louis whispered. I nodded.

He took my hand and lead me inside. He obviously knew where he was going as he took me straight to the spare room that had recently been converted to a theatre/games room. We sat on the bean bags on the floor, Louis somehow had managed to get me to sit on his lap and again wrapped his arms around my waist.

 

We talked for what seemed to be hours, about anything and everything we could think of. I ended up learning a lot about his family and why he moved out, and what he likes. It was different seeing Louis not care about anything and just say what was on his mind. I could tell there was some hurt there behind the stories but he was good at keeping it under control. My mind trailed off for a second and the feelings of guilt I had of being with Liam slowly got stronger. I hated myself for the way I was thinking. Here I was cuddled into one of the hottest guys at school but couldn't stop thinking about Liam. I realised that I was developing feelings for both guys and I felt horrible.

 

"You know,  I've been thinking lately, I really enjoyed that night we went out. I really like being around you Jess"

"aww that's sweet Louis, I had fun with you" I smiled.

"There's just one thing that would have made the night that much better"

"And what would that be Louis?"

As I said that, a smile grew on lips and he bit them lightly. He inched closer towards me and lightly grazed his lips over mine.

I didn't pull away as the kiss grew more intense but we were quickly interrupted by one of Katie's aunts who came into the room.

"Sorry to barge in, do you mind putting on a movie for the kids. It's hard to enjoy a party when the kids are running around all over the place" she laughed nervously.

"Sure" I smiled and walked over to the movie cabinet and pulled out Toy Story. The kids stopped in an instant and their eyes fixated on the tv as the movie started as was Louis. We sat there on the bean bag with his arm wrapped around me as I cuddled into him.

 

As the movie credits  continued to play, I looked over to my right to see Louis asleep. I carefully got up from the bean bag and walked to the bathroom where I stared at myself in the mirror.

Come on Jess, pull yourself together I thought as I moved to sit on the edge of the bathtub.

 

Liam's kiss earlier that night surprised me. We hadn't had a moment like that in a while so for it to start up again so abruptly brought back memories of how he made me feel. There was no denying that there had always been feelings for Liam. When Louis kissed me it was a different feeling. It was something new and different which was exciting. I knew nothing could ever happen with Liam, Katie would flip if she ever found out about us. I felt horrible for feeling the way I did about them both.  I didn’t want to lead any of them on.

 

An overwhelming sense of guilt came over me as a tear fell from my eye rolling down my cheek.

 

"Is everything ok Jess?" Louis said at the door.

"Did you have a good little nap?" I replied trying to avoid the question.

"You know you can talk to me if you like" he said coming closer to me.

"I'm fine Louis really, I.. I just gotta go" I quickly got up, wiped the tear from my face and ran out the door.

 

I grabbed my bag from Katie's room and headed for the front door. Louis tried to follow me.

"Jess stop!" he shouted. I kept walking.

Liam and Katie were walking towards the living room when they saw me rush out the door.

 

*Louis's POV*

"What the hell was that about?" Katie asked as Liam, Katie and myself stood in the hallway watching the door slam shut.

"I saw her upset in the bathroom and she just got all weird and left" I said.

"That’s strange, oh wait, she did say earlier she wasn’t feeling well" Katie reassured us

"You'd think she'd tell us she was leaving though right guys?" Liam asked.

 

*Jess's  POV*

I fumbled through my bag to find my phone as I sat on my bed. I quickly opened up my messages and began to type.

 

FROM: JESS

Hey, I'm sorry about tonight. What happened at the party can't happen again. I'm so sorry :(

Jess
