9. Drama-free is What I Want to Be


For the first time in my life, I woke up feeling really warm, and happy. Like I've slept on a water bed with glitter and sparkle spread over it after a massage session and drinking fine smoothies. But the moment I turned my head to the right, spotting the bare back of a male's body next to me, the calm I woke up to got  replaced with panic.

But after my brain finally started functioning correctly, it hit me; the nightmare, Woody toy, Liam. I sighed in relief before I found myself admiring his adorable face, literally the cutest thing to ever see is Liam sleeping, forget about babies and puppies, there should be YouTube videos of Liam sleeping. He opened his eyes like he's been awake for so long and only kept his eyes shut to listen to what I'd say.

"Staring is rude." He chuckled rubbing his eyes.

"I wasn't staring" I defended awkwardly sitting up to avoid seeing his smirk.

"Yeah right." He replied sarcastically. "Good morning anyways." He said turning to the other side of the bed and pulling the covers up and getting too comfortable for someone getting up.

"Not planning on waking up now?" I asked looking down at him as he shrugged.

"Nope, it's Sunday we can still sleep for two more hours" He explained before he suddenly pulled my arm that I fell down next to him.

"What if I don’t want to sleep?" I raised an eyebrow.

"You don’t have a choice. I want you next to me" He teased bringing me closer.

"And why is that?"

"Cause you're warm and you keep everything warm. Plus you're a great cuddle buddy" He told me making me reconsider things. Another hour of sleep won't hurt anyone right?

"Okay maybe we can sleep for one more hour, just one" 

*3 Hours Later*

I woke up again looking at my right and knowing for fact that Liam must be next to me so there was no need to panic again, but he wasn't. I scanned the place with my eyes to find a negative response.. Well maybe he woke up before me, I glanced at the clock, It's 1pm. I yawned- Wait! One Pm! Why didn’t he wake me? I jumped out of bed & went quickly to my room, I showered then put on some clothes before I headed downstairs to only find Harry and Liam.

"Liam why didn’t you wake me! An hour means three in your world?" I questioned annoyed at his action. He laughed shrugging like it was no big deal to sleep this late. Well he can deal with my hyper self at night. 

"I'm sorry you just looked so... Peaceful and cute. I couldn't do it!" He shouted making it seem like the hardest thing ever. I rolled my eyes heading to the kitchen to get a glass of water.

"Where are the others, Harry?" 

"Louis & Niall went shopping, I’m sure they won't be back until three. Melody is still asleep." He replied not even bothering to look off his phone. That kid is always on Twitter but never tweeting fans or following them! What a creeper.

"Hah Niall's going to buy anything edible." I mumbled to myself sitting between the two boys and pushing Harry's legs away making him protest with a 'Hey!'

"Did you get any breakfast yet?" Liam asked as I focused on the TV that had Snookie & JWow on.

"Yeah your bed makes breakfast, didn't you know?" I sarcastically said making Harry laugh as Liam whined playfully.

"How funny is that? I was going to give you some pancakes, because I know how much you love pancakes. But since you already ate-" Harry couldn't finish his sentence when I jumped kissing his cheek.

"I love you Harry! Now give me the pancakes" Liam & I laughed at the shocked expression Harry had on his face, he then stood up and made his way to the kitchen, shortly after he came in with a plate with pancake.

"Thanks babe” I quickly said taking the plate from his hands.

"Anything for you, love" He sat next to me while I’m eating pancakes, they were both watching TV, some gossip show.

"And speaking of new couples, Liam Payne was seen with a beautiful lady in Starbucks three days in a row" My eyes grew wide open "Our cameras caught them showing public affection,. Liam Payne seemed happy being around her. Can she be his new love? What happened to dancer Danielle Peazer? we'll find out." As the lady finished, Harry was giving us a look that I translated as 'I knew it would happen' while Liam and I were both wide eyed. I don't even feel like eating anymore.

"So what are you two going to do about this?" Harry asked seeming really calmed about it.

"I don’t know..." Liam mumbled " Ashley, I'm so sorry"

"No.... I thought you were having a week off, that's what Zayn told me." I said playing what they said on TV over and over again. Harry just nodded letting out a soft sigh.

"What about Danielle?" Harry asked turning to look at Liam.

"What about her?" Liam's head snapped towards him.

"Well don't you think she'll be a little bit jealous seeing you with a girl as beautiful as Ashley?" Harry rep- Wait did he just call me beautiful?

"Oh no, I know Danielle, I talked to her so many times. I doubt she'll get it the wrong way." I said not sure what else to say. Suddenly Liam's phone started ringing. He picked it up looked at us with fear in his eyes.

"Hello.... Yes I've seen the news... Paul, it is your job to keep them distracted........ No she's just a friend" A long silence followed where Liam was just nodding and sighing like Paul would see his nods "Alright, okay. I'm sorry" He hung up;

"Paul. He's blaming it all on me" Liam informed us sitting on the couch while holding his head with his hands.

"It's okay Liam, I'll talk to Danielle & this Paul guy and explain everything" I reassured patting his back.

"Liam you're just overreacting, Danielle is an open minded person, she'll understand. Paul is always mad so it doesn’t matter" Harry shrugged off. Seriously though, it was my fault, I should have known better.

"Guys we're here!" Louis shouted once he stepped in, posing like Superman, he noticed we weren’t in the mood for his jokes. "What happened here? Who died?" He asked looking concerned, I couldn’t help but laugh at his serious face.

"The media thinks Ashley & Liam are going out, and that he's cheating on Danielle because they  caught them holding hands & hugging at Starbucks for the past three days" Harry explained looking over to Louis.

"I knew that would happen!" Niall confirmed casually making his way to the couch. He really is a carefree mofo.

"Liam you should ring Danielle before she sees the news" Louis acknowledged.

"I will, I just don’t know what to say"

"I'll talk to her" I announced taking my phone and running to my room. All of them were trying to stop me but they failed. I looked for her number then pressed 'call'. Hearing the rings was only making me..... nervous. What if she already had seen the news?

"Hello!" Her cheerful voice came from the other line.

"Hey Danielle, it's me Ashley" I tried to sound as cheerful as I could.

"Oh hey sweetheart, how are you doing?"

"I'm fine, hey did you see the news today?" I asked her quickly, the boys were knocking & telling me it was a bad idea, but I just made sure to think of how to explain it.

"No I was too busy because of the dance practice, and I don't really watch the news since Twitter is doing a great job with letting me updated" She laughed at her own joke. "Why ?"

"Well..... Liam & I used to go to Starbucks every morning, to get breakfast. He kind of told me about your little argument, & I hugged him to show him that I care because he was really sad. The paparazzi took pictures of us & now they're all over the news, they even think we're dating. I know you'll understand because he loves you honestly. I just wanted to be the first one to tell you" I breathed. A long silence until she spoke up.

"Listen Ashley, I do believe you & it's all good. But I don’t think my relationship will work with him" She mumbled the last part.

"What! You got to be kidding me Dani! He loves you I swear nothing is happening between us" I begged making my voice lower so I wouldn't scare Liam.

"I know, it's just that long distance relationships are so hard, & I don’t think I can do this anymore"

"No no no! You can't do this to him. He's waiting for you, please don’t break up with him" I pleaded scared of how heartbroken he'll be.

"I'm sorry... I got to go"

"Wai-" She quickly hung up before I could even finish my sentence. I sighed really loud typing away a new text to her.

'i am not going to tell Liam in case you change your mind, please give him a chance'

Then I unlocked the door & went outside to see Liam waiting in the hallway like a man waiting for his wife to deliver her baby at the hospital hallway.

"What did she say?" He quickly asked nervously.

"She says it's okay and she knows we're just friends" I answered putting on a small smile.

"Oh thank god" he hugged me.

"Liam, do you love her?" I asked him hopping he'll say no, even though I know yes will be the answer.

"Of course I do." I really don’t want him to get hurt. She's going to break up with him and I know he's going to go through such a hard time, a long term relationship can't just end like that.

"I just called Paul, he's calmer now. I convinced him to let Ashley tour with us too" Harry said putting his hands on my shoulder.

"Thanks Haz, I owe you big time" 

[A/N: I'll just jump to the next morning, nothing interesting happened for the rest of the day. Zayn still didn't show up or call. ]

I woke up to the annoying beeping of my alarm clock, like always. I slammed the snooze button as I groaned, forcing myself off the bed, I went to the bathroom taking a quick ten minutes shower, when I came out I plugged in my hair dried & went to my closet.

I took off my towel looking for an outfit to wear after I made sure I was in my underwear, you never know when Harry Styles might show in your room, he just does. I ended up showing my love for peace by choosing a peace sign shirt and a skinny jean since it goes with whatever you wear, my hair was going through his period, so I covered it with a beanie matching the same color as the top,  and wore black Converse as the shoes.

It was only eight and a half but I had to wake up that early to pack. It takes me a whole day to pack because I have so many clothes, and also because I'm a lazy turtle... I was going to pack my things yesterday but since it was full of drama, I decided to wake up this early. 

First I headed downstairs feeling too lazy to make anything to eat that I would prefer not eating at all, but that I'm sure that won't be the case for the boys, so I just poured myself some cereal taking a seat in the couch and turning the TV on, when I saw myself on TV . I wasn't surprised to be honest, I knew it would happen sooner or later, but as long as I didn't have a social media account, I'm good off the hate.

I finished my cereal, as I turned the TV off again already annoyed. I decided to go to McDonald's and buy something for the boys since I didn't make anything. I held my phone in my hand heading outside to start my adventure in the streets of London, to McDonald's it is. Suddenly a bunch of people came running to me with flashing lights, my mind froze for a moment then I realized it was the paparazzi's. Why are they coming for me?

"Hey Ashley are you dating Liam?"

"Ashley over here!"

"Where is Liam?"

"When are you making it official?" I ran as fast as I could as they followed me. I spotted McDonalds so I walked in there breathing heavily. I ordered breakfast for six people and waited as they served it. then I stepped outside checking if they were still there, the paparazzi were nowhere to be found 'yay I lost them' I thought to myself as I ran again as fast as I could back to the house, it was pretty hard with all the food in my hands, but I made it because I am just strong like that. As I entered the house, the boys were already awake.

"Where did you go?" Asked Harry obliviously. Sometimes he can be really stupid, if he just lowered his eyes a little bit he would have seen the bags of McDonalds written in big words.

"I was too lazy to make breakfast so I bought some McDonalds" I replied deciding that it's better if I don't crash the boy's hope. But I felt stupid for not leaving a note after thinking about it.

"Thank you Ashley" Niall said as he took the food from my hands. Something I would call gentlemen-ish, but knowing Niall, he just wanted food.

I took a seat next to Liam and Harry at the kitchen counter since they were all gathered there.

"You guys will never believe what happened to me" I announced making all head snap my way and eyes focus on me.

"What? Are you okay!" Liam being his overprotective self. 

"Guys! She brought hotcakes!" Niall shouted excitedly opening the boxes.

"I love hotcakes" Louis shouted back running to where Niall was.

"Shut up boys, let her talk!" Liam hissed making me giggle at how curious and impatient he was going.

"Well, you're welcome boys. And I got chased by paparazzi." I said proudly, like being chased by paps is something to be proud of...

"What!" They all shouted in chorus, even Niall and Louis who were too busy shoving hotcake in their mouths. "They somehow managed to get my name" I added realizing that it's such a bad thing now... What if they'll chase me around wherever I go and even try to get my nudes and some other crazy things we usually see on gossip shows!

"Are you okay? did they do anything to you!" Harry worriedly questioned. I wasn't sure what 'anything' really meant, because they did chase me and ask me stupid questions.

"No, I'm fine don’t worry. I ran to McDonalds and they couldn't catch me, so I lost them" I smiled reassuring them.

"Good morning" Melody greeted as she walked in.

"Great bed hair" I mocked sarcastically, knowing that it's her sex hair, she caught my message with a wink and blushed.

''Hey! leave my girl alone" Niall defended with full mouth putting his arm over Mel's shoulder

"Sorry love birds" I apologized getting up "Anyways, I need to go pack. It takes me hours" I complained motioning upstairs.

"Need any help? I already packed yesterday" Harry offered getting up as well.

"Sure" I smiled and we headed upstairs in silence. How awkward it'll be to stay at the same room with him.... Alone.

 

We both managed to grab all the clothes that I own, and stuffed them in three suitcases in five hours. I lined them up next to the door clapping my hands together.

"Well that was fun" Harry said aiming to the part when he wore my underwear on his head and took pictures posting them on Twitter. He only embarrassed himself really.

"Thank you, if you didn’t help I'd still be stuffing the first suitcase." I said mater of factly making him laugh at my struggle.

Time passes by so fast when I'm doing some activity involving the five of them, it was almost five already. I checked my phone that's been vibrating the whole time I packed with Harry, to find three new texts.  Excited and eager to read, I checked the first one; from my second best friend Shay.

'HOLY SHIT GIRL I JUST SAW U ON TV! YOU BITCH DIDNT TELL ME YOU HANG OUT WITH 1D djuzedofzehfo ILL KILL U! How are you anyway? I miss you so much babe <3"

I laughed quietly, oh how I miss her hyper soul, I wish she would come to, but that. wouldn't happen since my life can never be perfect for at least a day. I typed away the reply

'It's a long story, I’ll tell you later. I'm really great & I miss you to <3

The other two texts were from the phone network promoting some shops, I locked my phone and walked downstairs again to find Harry sitting on the couch. The others were probably packing. It's still a bit awkward between me and Harry, I just don’t like being with him. I know what you're thinking 'Oh you were with him for 5 hours in your room' well those were the most awkward 5 hours ever. He didn't notice me standing so I decided to help the others with packing. I opened Louis's door to find him sleeping so I preferred not to wake him.

I knocked on Liam's door, but he didn't answer, I considered he might be somewhere else, but I could hear a faint sound inside the room. I decided to just push the door and walk in. What I saw broke my heart, seeing a man crying is the worst scene ever. I rushed to him tears already gathering in my eyes.

"Liam, What's wrong? Why are you crying!" I embraced him in a hug. A part of me already knew what happened, he wouldn't cry if it wasn't for Danielle.

"She dumped me! She just simply dumped me!. Danielle dumped me!" Liam repeated crying his eyes out. I didn't know what to do so I just tightened the hug feeling somehow guilty, feeling like I am the reason why they broke it off.

"You can cry as much as you want but that's not going to make you feel any better. I hate seeing you like this" I said feeling my eyes water.

"I can't believe it, she broke up with me. I loved her! I gave her everything and she just gave it away" He said still crying on my shoulder. I wish I never met the boys, I wish I never came to London, I wish my parents never got divorced.. I blame it all on them. All I did was making troubles between Zayn and Perrie then Zayn and the rest of the boys, and now Liam and Danielle, who knows? What if I stay here I'll make bigger problems, I need to leave.

"I'm so sorry Liam, if she broke up with you because of that stupid rumor, I should've left days before. I should have never stayed here. It’s all because of me! I'm deeply sorry" I apologized letting tears fall down my cheek. It was the truth, my parents might even have divorced because of me.

He suddenly stopped crying and pulled away holding my face with his hands, slowly wiping away the tears on my cheeks with his thumb.

"No no no no! Don't even say that again! You're the best thing that ever happened to all of us. You're an amazing friend and Danielle didn’t break up with me because of you, she said she couldn't take it anymore with me. I should be the one who's sorry for dragging you into my personal problems" He insisted looking into my red eyes, I sniffed dropping my gaze.

"Please stop hurting yourself. She's not worth your tears. I hate seeing you crying." I said and hugged him again.

"Well I better start packing" He randomly decided, while trying to smile wiping my tears away.

"Yeah, I came here to see if you need any help"

"Sure, I don’t think I will finish in time alone"

We packed everything in one big suitcase in less than two hours. Impressive. But he's a guy so...

"It took me five hours, with Harry's help and three suitcases to finish packing. & you, just one suitcase in less than two hours with my help" I observed in disbelief.

"Boys don’t have as many clothes as girls" He laughed.

"Yeah, but still" I protested crossing my arms and pouting like a baby.

"Awh look at you! you're so cute" He adorably said pinching my cheek and making me blush. "You look even cuter when you blush. gosh how do you do that?"

"I don't know" I blushed even more. "I'm going downstairs before I become a tomato.'' I mumbled making him laugh.

I walked to the couch where Harry was sleeping, I guess I should wake him, he doesn't look comfortable

"Harold, get up" He groaned refusing to obey. "Get up Harry, you're sleeping on the couch!"

"Just leave me alone" He shouted turning to face me. Well packing with me is tiring but not to that point I mean...

"Come on, you nee-" The door bell rang and I sighed turning to Harry's way again. 

"If I get back and find you sleeping still, you're so going to regret it" With that, I made my way to the door, opening it to face his kissable soft pink lips, beautiful hazel eyes and perfect black features. He quickly looked down to the floor whilst mumbling some things that seemed to be whispers.

 

"Are you going to come in or?" I said, getting his attention. He looked up.

"Uhm..... yeah, I'd like to talk to all of you" He said biting his lip nervously.

"Niall and Melody are having a make out session in their room, Louis is sleeping in his. Liam is still packing some things, and Harry is sleeping on the couch" I informed him avoiding any eye contact.

"Oh okay... I'll just get back later" He replied awkwardly ready to turn around.

"What are you talking about? Get in, maybe you can wake Harry" I invited him opening the door wider for him to come in, while O walked back to Harry who still didn't wake up.

"Harold!" I screamed causing him to shout 'Leave me alone!' Back at me. 

"Harold Edward Styles if you don't get up this instant I will personally shave that curly cloud on your head!" I warned making him jump from the bed and rub his eyes.

"Okay okay. Jesus! Why do you hate me so much?" He said turning to face me, when he saw Zayn, he looked surprised

"You know I love you. Zayn is here to talk with all of us, I’ll just go get the others." I informed him before leaving upstairs.

I really don't want to talk nor see Zayn, But I guess I’m going to have to since we'll go on tour together. Which makes me confused to why they chose me to open for their concerts, Why didn't they pick Perrie's group? She probably wants it more than I do.

"Liam, Zayn is downstairs" I quickly said heading to the next room and leaving the door wide open. Louis was still sleeping. Mission Impossible starts now.

"Louis!" I shouted quickly ducking down since I was expecting a pillow thrown at me.

''Give me back my carrot Niall" He was probably having a nightmare

"Louis get up now the house is on fire!" I yelled at the top of my lungs, Niall and Melody ran out of their room while Louis didn’t move an inch.

"I thought you said the house was on fire" Niall exclaimed wide eyed.

"No, Zayn is downstairs and I'm trying to wake Louis” I sighed. They both nodded giggling and went downstairs. 

After twelve minutes of trying. I finally gave up and joined the others.

"He won't wake up" I announced sighing at my underrated efforts.

"So Zayn what did you want to talk about?" Liam started after clearing his throat.

"I... uhm... I just want to apologize to all of you" Zayn nervously played with his fingers.

"The only person you should be apologizing to is Ashley" Harry said as he put his arm around me, since I was sitting next to him on the couch across from Zayn. I felt very uncomfortable to feel his arms around my waist.

"Your psychotic, crazy girlfriend slapped her and I believe she deserves an apology" Melody agreed.

"Ashley I’m s-" He started. Did he really think a 'sorry' would fix it all? Oh how wrong he was.

"Don’t bother! I'm not forgiving you with a 'sorry'. You can shove that sorry up your butt" I sassed hearing a giggle that escaped Melody's mouth.

"Why!" He said with a deep angry voice.

"And you're asking me why! Your girlfriend slapped me in the face, insulted me and all you did was sit there and watch. How could you ask me why?" I yelled feeling Harry's arm holding me tighter.

"No I wa-"

"Bullshit! you were sitting there with an amused look on your face. Having fun two girls are fighting over you. You should be ashamed of yourself" I yelled for the last time and managed to escape from Harry's arm and swiftly run upstairs so that no one could see the tears that were forming in my eyes.... Now they're falling... Oh well. Louis saw me as he was leaving his room then went after me, before I could close the door he slipped in and hugged me tightly. I was crying my eyes out. Seriously so sick of all this drama.

"Calm down, and tell me what happened" He softly demanded. I breathed in and out then blurted out.

"Zayn came to talk with everyone, that's why I tried to wake you. You didn’t wake up so I just got back downstairs. He apologized and everyone was like 'you should apologize to Ashley', he tried to say he's sorry but I cut him off telling him that I won’t forgive him cause he enjoyed seeing two girls fighting over him. Even though I wasn’t. Then he tried to apologize again and I broke down. That's when I came running upstairs because I didn’t want to seem weak but now you’ll think I am weak and I hate my life do you have some Nutella?." I finished sniffing. He hugged me tighter, I'm surprised he even followed along at how fast I was talking.

"That bloody bastard. I'll make sure to throw all my carrots at him" He joked and I couldn't help but laugh through my tears. "See, keep that smile on your face. I love it" He said again and I blushed.  

"Alright, I admit that I overreacted. Let's just go back downstairs and I'll apologize" I said facing him with a smile still not leaving my face.

"No you're not apologizing or going back downstairs. You're going to sleep right now, we have a long flight tomorrow so sleep as long as you can. I'm the one who's going downstairs" He advised kissing my forehead before he left my room.
