4. "Boo!"

"Wait, so he danced with the waitress? Not you?" Lilly asked in disbelief.
We were in my room, 'studying' for our final exams.
"Yeah," I scoffed.
I hadn't told her about meeting Niall. I didn't think anything would come out of meeting him, and I didn't want to complicate anything by talking to him again.
But to be honest, he was the only thing I had thought about all week.
I hadn't talked to Harry much, texted goodnight and good morning occasionally but we never had real conversations.
I told my mom that the date was amazing and left out Niall, and the fact that Harry had danced with the waitress, not wanting to endure the bitch fit she would have.
"So are you guys going out again?" She asked, while attempting to balance a pencil on her nose, making me laugh.

"Willingly, no. I'm sure mom and Melinda will come up with something," I said, closing my binder and tossing it on my desk.
"I know what would make it better," Lilly said in a singsongy voice.
"What?" I asked raising an eyebrow.
"Channing Tatum!" She said, holding up the movie 'The Vow'.

I smiled. "I'll go make the popcorn"
---
How do you look at the woman you love, and tell yourself that its time to walk away?

"DON'T DO IT CHANNING DONT!!" Lilly cried, wiping away her tears with a Kleenex.
I laughed. This movie always made Lilly bawl.
The familiar message tone of my phone went off.
Unknown number: Hey there (: It's Niall.
Niall? How had he even gotten my number?
Of corse I remembered him, but I decided to have some fun.

'I'm sorry.' I replied, 'I don't know a Niall,' I laughed to myself, waiting for him to respond.
Unknown number: Uh we danced together? To that song you love so much about having no chicken?
I laughed out loud when I read his text.
"SHH!" Lilly commanded.
'Oh.. Kinda rings a bell. I'm only kidding, how could I forget you?' I replied.
I instantly regretted it... Was it to forward?
Unknown number: Listen I don't know if this is weird or not, but I've been thinking about you a lot this week.
My thumbs hovered over the keyboard before quickly typing back.
'Words right out of my mouth.'
-Harry's POV-
I had hardly talked to Julia at all this week. I had a feeling she wasn't really into me, and quite frankly, I wasn't feeling anything towards her.
She was very sweet, kind and beautiful, but I just didn't feel that...spark.
The spark I felt last week when I danced with Makenzie.
She waited on my family a lot when we had dinner at the country club.
We had talked, and possibly flirted a bit. I played it off whenever my family was with me, they would never approve of me dating a waitress.
But there was just... something about her.
The way her hair was brown and faded to blonde at the tips, how it cascaded down her back and how her blue eyes lit up when she smiled.
I snapped out of thought when my mother burst in the door. "Harry!" She exclaimed, "Im glad your home, we have dinner guests coming."
There was no way in hell I was staying for another dinner. I quickly thought of an excuse.
"I really wish I could go but I-I-I'm going to see Julia," I said.

She was quiet for a moment before signing.
"Okay. Be home by 11," she said.
I nodded and headed out the door.
I began walking towards a small cafe fairly close to my house.

I had no intentions of actually going to see Julia.
I headed in the café and sat at the nearest available spot. I pulled out my phone and logged on to Twitter, seeing as how I had around three hours to kill.
The bell above the door caught my attention and my head shot up. I didn't get a clear look at who walked in, so I looked back down on my phone.
A few minuets later, someone slid into the seat across from me.
"Mind if I sit here?" She smiled.
Makenzie.
-JULIA'S POV-
I texted Niall for hours.
He was funny and sweet and so easy to talk to.
By the time Lilly and I had watched three Channing Tatum movies, it was six.
"I should get home," she sighed.
"I'll walk with you." I offered.
We began the short walk to Lilly's house in silence.
The sun was already beginning to set and the sky was beautiful.
"See you!" I said as we walked into her driveway.
"Bye!" She smiled.
I turned around to walk home, when I looked across the street.
It was Niall.
He was in the garage, wearing a tank top and a snapback, rummaging through some boxes.
He hadn't seen me, and he turned around with his back to me, reaching up to grab a box on a high shelf.
As he reached up his back muscles flexed and my heart fluttered.
I snapped myself out of it.
I couldn't think these things about Niall.
I decided to sneak up on him.
I got up to a yard behind him and whispered.
"Boo"
He quickly jumped up and turned around.
"SHIT!" He cursed.
I couldn't help my uncontrollable laughter.
"Not funny!" He said.
"I think it was," I said between laughs.
"Oh really?" Niall asked.
I nodded my head. Niall began tickling me, causing me to laugh even harder.
"Okay okay! TRUCE!" I yelled.
He stopped tickling me and I toppled onto a box.
"You little stalker. How do you know where I live?" He asked.
"Coincidentally, your my best friends neighbor." I told him.
He raised an eyebrow. "Huh. I don't know any of my neighbors."
"What are you... Doing in here?" I asked looking around the garage.
His cheeks turned red. "Nothing,"
I decided not to press the issue.
"I should be getting home," I sighed.
Niall looked up at me. "I'll walk you," he said.
"It's okay you don't have to," I said.
"It wasn't exactly a question," he smiled at me.
I barely knew Niall but I felt like I had known him my whole life. Just being with him made me... happy.
We arrived at my house minuets later.
"It was great to see you again," he smiled as we got to my door.
"You too, Niall" I said.
"Uh... I was wondering.." Niall began rubbing the stubble on his chin, "if maybe you wanted to... Go out sometime?"
I was in shock. Niall actually wanted to go out with... Me?
I guess I was silent for too long because Niall quickly added, "Unless you and Harry..." I cut him off.
"I would love to go out with you, Niall" He smiled.
"I'll text you?" He asked.
I nodded.
"Bye Julia," Niall said, hugging me.
I hugged back and whispered,
"Bye, Niall"
