I walked into the kitchen and got out some chips, popcorn, and soda to put out for Niall's friends. I put everything on a table in the backyard. We had a pool and I figured we could just hang out and swim, Niall told the boys to bring some swim trunks. It was only four O'clock in the afternoon and it was still daylight outside. The doorbell rang and I walked over to the window to see who it was. "Katie! Pizza's here!" I yelled, up the stairs. I opened the door. "Hi. My sister will be right down." I said to the delivery guy. He was facing the street. "Okay." he said as he turned around. "Hello Rose." I looked at him. Did I know him? It suddenly hit me. I looked at a scar on his cheek. I gave him that scar when we were kids. When he chased me around with a worm on a stick and I threw that small, sharp rock at him. That was in second grade. I never thought I would see him again after he moved. I looked at him and he smiled at me. "Dustin? I haven't seen you since like fifth grade." I said.

"I know. It's been a while huh?" he said. "Rose." I heard Katie say from the top of the stairs. I turned around, "Catch." She tossed her wallet to me. I turned back around. "Okay so how much is the pizza, Dust?" I asked with a slight smile. "Wow. I remember when you gave me that nick-name because I used to love playing in the dirt." We both laughed. "And it's on me. You don't have to pay. I owe you anyway. For what you did for me in fourth grade," he smiled "I gotta go deliver some more pizzas. I'll see you later." he said as he walked back to his car. I closed the door and carried the pizza and bread to the kitchen. I set the food down. I walked out into the living room. Niall was watching T.V.

"Hey, when are your friends gonna get here?" I asked, right as the doorbell rang again. "I'm guessing right now." Niall said as I walked over to the door. I opened the curtain and looked out the window. Four guys dressed in swim trunks and T-shirts were standing on my doorstep talking to one another. I opened the door and was greeted by an enormous hug. 'Who is hugging me?' I thought to myself. "How's my favorite cousin?" Liam said. "Li. I. Can't. Breath." I said as he put me down. "Oops, sorry Rose." Liam said as he raked his fingers through his hair sheepishly.

I looked at the other three guys. "Rose, this is Zayn. I think you guys will be great friends. You have a lot in common, like you both love to draw." Liam pointed to a dark haired boy with brown eyes. "Hey. Like he said, I'm Zayn." he said with a smile. I smiled back. "This is Har-" Liam was interrupted by a boy with curly brown hair and emerald green eyes. "Liam, I think I can introduce myself. Hi, I'm Harry. I really like your name by the way." Harry said, he smiled and winked at me. "Yeah, Harry's a bit of a flirt. Pay no attention to him." Liam said. I giggled a little bit.

A boy with slightly messy brown hair and sea blue eyes walked up to me. "Hi. I'm Louis and I like girls who eat carrots!" He said with a huge grin on his face. They all burst out laughing at him. I was a bit confused. I didn't know what to say so I just laughed awkwardly. "Well? What's your name then, love?" Louis asked me. "Oh. Sorry, I'm Rose." I said quietly. Liam, Niall, and Harry already knew my name, but apparently Louis and Zayn didn't. Harry walked up to me. "Your name really is beautiful. Just like you" he said. I blushed a bit. "Okay then. Why don't you guys come in and you can get something to eat. There's plenty." I said. "Not with Niall around, there isn't." Liam said with a smirk. The rest of the boys decided to hurry up and get out into the backyard before Niall ate all the food.

        ~*Niall's P.O.V*~

I looked at the boys and at Rose. "Don't worry I'm not gonna eat all of the food. Maybe" They stared at me. The guys ran towards the food to keep me from eating it all. "Okay so why don't we all go hang out and just relax for a little while." Rose said while walking outside. We all followed her out. Rose stopped me. I looked at her, she had a sorta sad look on her face. "What's wrong?" I asked her. She looked up at me sadly. "It's just, I haven't seen Liam in so long. The last time I saw him was when we were about seven years old." She said. "Okay well you'll be seeing a lot more of him from now on." I reassured her. She smiled. "Okay let's go outside." I said. We both walked out into the backyard. Rose turned back to look at me. "Hold on I forgot to get the paper plates. I'll be right back." she said before going back inside. "Hey Niall! Come over here for a minute." Liam yelled from over by the pool.

I walked over to the lads. "What's up?" I asked them. Liam looked at me like I did something wrong, what did I do?. "How did you meet Rose? I'm not angry with you I just want to know how you happened to meet her." Liam said calmly. "Well I met her in Ms. Prescott's class. She's in all of our classes how could you guys not notice her?" I asked. We all just stood there looking at Liam. He cleared his throat. "Well have any of you guys noticed her?" he asked quietly. The rest of the boys nodded their heads. "I noticed her in drama class." Louis said. I looked at him. Drama class, that's all the boy needed. I think he's enough of a drama queen as it is. I chuckled to myself. Zayn spoke up. "I actually noticed her during second period English when we were going over Romeo & Juliet." he said quietly. Harry nodded, "That's exactly when I noticed her when she was talking about Benvolio being Romeo's cousin. You were reading, weren't you Payne?" Harry said with a smirk.

Liam looked at him a little bit embarrassed. "Maybe. Yes I was reading. I guess that's why I hadn't noticed her. I was being too much of a book worm." Liam said quietly. He had a sad look on his face. Right then, Rose walked out. She was wearing a black and white striped one-piece bathing suit, and carrying some paper plates. I walked over to her and took the plates from her and sat them down on the table. "Hey guys so what do you want to do? We can chat, swim, watch a movie, anything you guys want really is fine with me." Rose said. She is such a sweet girl. Suddenly a voice spoke up behind us, "Louis?" We all looked over at the sliding glass door. It was Eleanor, Louis' girlfriend. "Eleanor? Hey what are you doing here?" Louis then noticed Katie and Danielle, Liam's girlfriend. "Oh, Katie invited Dani and I for a sleepover." Eleanor said. "You guys are welcome to stay the night if you want." Rose told us. "Oh yeah sure. That sounds good."Liam said.  "Okay. C'mon girls." Katie said. Eleanor blew a kiss to Louis and Danielle blew a kiss to Liam.

I invited the boys to stay the night. I figured maybe we could all just eat and swim and watch movies all night. Tonight was going to be fun.
