Niki 's POV
It's my Sweet 16 next month! I'm so excited!
I have a pictorial today for F21 and Victoria secret. Right now, I'm at F21 and later I’ll be at Victoria secrets with Liam, Still the protective brother, after their rehearsal and pictorial.
"Darling, it’s your sweet 16 next month. What are you planning on doing" Zachary asked while curling my hair and putting some hair products
His been my hairdresser for F21 ever since and his gay.
"I'm not sure yet, But I want my sweet 16 to be like the those girls on the MTV’s 'Sweet 16'" I said and smiled at him
"Have you told Liam yet?"
"Not yet, But I’m planning to tell him later." I said
"Well, Good luck with that." he said and smiled back.
* 15 Minutes after
I'm wearing the new outfit, my hair is curled and my make-up looks natural.
"Ready?" Cj asked.
His my assistant, but only when Liam isn't around. Yeah, Liam's the one who hired him. (-_-) His good-looking, sweet and a bit of a perv, But nothing ever happens to us, except a kisses on the cheek and sometimes on the lips. Of course, Liam doesn't know.
I nodded in response and he signaled me to go ahead.
The pictorial went fast, I think it only lasted for 20 minutes, but it actually lasted for an hour.
"That's a wrap!" Dyle (the photographer) shouted
"See you next time nik." he said to me and hugged me
"You too." I hugged back.
We hugged for like 2 seconds.
Cj approached me "Well, that went .. Slow"
"It wasn't. By the way Liam will pick me up in 10 minutes." I said and took my phone from my bag.
"Aww .. I want to come! I want to see you in a lingerie again." He whispered the last part in my ear
"In your dreams CJ!" I stuck my tongue out on him.
He chuckled and pinched my cheeks "You're so cute, you know that."
"No I’m not!" I said and slapped his hand off my cheeks.
He chuckled again as I rubbed my cheeks.
He took a step closer to me, so now we we're just inches away. "Sorry" he said. He looked deeply into my eyes and caressed my cheek.
"It's fine." I looked away.
He put his finger in my chin to make me look at him. He was still looking deeply into my eyes and I was looking into his. Our lips we're only inches away, He looked at my lips and back to my eyes, he bit his lip. His face came closer to mine; he was looking at my lips. When our lips we're an inch away, He closed his eyes and my phone suddenly rang. He pulled away and rubbed his neck with his hand.
I looked at my phone to see who was calling, it was Liam. Seriously? What is he? A superhuman! He really called when our lips were just an inch away. We were this close kiss! Seriously Liam?!
I answered his call.
"Hey Liam" I said and looked Cj, who was still standing in front of me.
[Hey! I'm outside.]
"Uh .. Okay. Be out in a minute, I'll just get my stuff."
[Alright. Is Cj still with you?]
"Yeah, his still here. why?"
Cj looked at me with a questionable look. It was like, he was asking me if it was him that we we're talking about.
I nodded at him.
[Okay, just making sure that you're not alone their.]
I know what he meant by that. He was talking about Cj and me about being alone together.
"Alright. I'll be out in a minute."
He hang up after that.
I sighed loudly.
"Liam's outside." I said to cj
"Uh .. I'll go get your other stuff and your bag is over there." He said pointing at the chair that was next to the door I came out just an hour ago.
I nodded in response.
I went to my bag and he went inside the door. I grabbed my bag and waited for him.
*1 minute later
He came out with my clothes. I stood up and went outside, I saw Liam’s car parked next to a tree and he was sitting under the tree. he saw me and stood up he opened the car door at the back and grabbed my clothes from Cj and put it in the back, He patted Cj's back and went to the driver's side. I hugged Cj and he hugged back. I pulled away and went to my side of the car.
We arrived at Victoria secret after 20 minutes. Once we were inside, everyone was still setting up. They fixed my hair and make-up and made me wear the new lingerie. I stood in front of the camera as they we're re-doing my hair again and as the photographer was doing something with his camera, I looked at Liam and he was looking at me too, his face was unreadable, he looked 'ready to kill' to whomever makes a wrong a move on me but at the same time he looked relaxed just sitting at the couch near us.
I smiled at him and he smiled back.
*20 minutes later
"Okay. Niki, could you unhook your bra an-" the photographer said but was cut off by Liam.
"WHAT?!" He exclaimed and stood up from the couch. Anger was all over his face; his chocolate brown eyes were now dark.
I'm actually afraid when Liam’s mad.
He went next to me "he can't just unhook her bra and show off her boobs!!" He said angrily.
I just stood there, not knowing what to do. I understand why his mad and all but this my job.
"N-no.. Uh.. I-i wa-" and again Liam cut off the photographer.
"You what?! Maybe, you forgot that she's only .."
I looked at the photographer he looked terrified and everyone else in the room. Hmm .. Oh! Liam, right. I forgot!
".. That she's only fif-"
"L-liam!" I cut him off and he looked at me, I looked deeply into his eyes they were dark. He looked into my eyes and I guess he saw the fear in my eyes and he calmed down his eyes were chocolate brown again.
"M-maybe, Y-you could let him finish his sentence.. First" I said still looking into his eyes.
He nodded at me and looked at the photographer.
I gave the photographer an apologetic smile and a 'make-an-excuse-face' and he nodded.
"Uh .. I-i was about to say that s-she should take off her bra, because she already looks uncomfortable and .. and .. and go get change because ... Because it's wrap!!" he said and clapped his hands and the others followed.
I sighed in relief and mouthed 'thank you' to him. Liam looked me and sighed loudly.
"Ok. Let's go home then?" Liam asked and this time his calm enough that my fear was gone.
"Uh.. Sure, I’ll just get the lingerie's and... Get change." I said looking into his eyes and smiled
He nodded and smiled back.
I went to the changing room. I wiped off my make-up leaving my mascara and lipstick on and changed into my normal clothes. I got my lingerie's and went out, Liam was talking to the photographer, I guess he's saying sorry for over-reacting or whatever. I sighed and walked to them.
I tapped his back and he looked at me and nodded. He pats the photographers back and they smiled at each other. Liam took the bag of lingerie’s that I tried on just a while ago and we walked to his car and we drove off.
There was silence between us, only the sound of the engine and radio was heard.
He put his hand on my shoulder when we stopped at a red light.
"I'm sorry about what happened." he said with an apologetic look.
"It's fine." I smiled him. He took his hand from me and put it in the steering wheel again as the light went green.
