I sat on my bed my bed playing over the conversation me and my mother had just had. I was almost breathlessly excited that my best friend Louis was coming back to Arizona for Christmas. I was even more excited because today was his birthday and Louis is always ready to have fun. I haven't seen him since he moved away to go to college and I stayed here in Arizona basking in the seclusion. I already knew that I would possibly cry just seeing him.
I finally got off my bed and searched through my closet to find white faded jeans with tears on the thighs and a white Phoenix University sweatshirt. I brushed my hair and put it into a ponytail that still hangs past my shoulders. The weather today is the best is has been in weeks, not to hot but not to cold, something that isn't so frequent in Arizona. I grabbed my keys and set outside to find my car.
I share a dorm with 2 other girls but are of the girls lives in a sorority a few miles within campus. Anyway, I crossed the campus parking lot and found my blue Jeep. The airport wasn't tat far from my dorm, maybe 15 minutes or shy but it seemed like forever. I hadn't been this excited since I'd learned I'd been accepted into Phoenix U. I switched on the radio and drummed my fingers on the steering wheel listening to Christmas music.
WELCOME TO PHOENIX passed me as I pulled into the pick up and chased the signs to terminal. I dug into my bag and found a red sharpie and wrote "Tomlinson" on my hand. I was pretty sure I looked stupid with some guys name on my palm. I wasn't even sure he would see his name on my hand.
"Hello, can I get a piece of your cardboard." I ask the man in a black and gray blazer, holding a "Angela" sign. He smiles and rips off a small piece. I re-write "Tomlinson" on the sign and hold it up standing on a chair.
The woman over the intercom recites a flight and I hope it's Louis' flight. It's not. I stand for a few more minutes as my arms grow tired and two more flights are called. I nearly dance in my seat as I hear a flight being called from the UK to Arizona. I jump down from my chair and rush to the front of the crowd.
His sandy brown hair bounces as he stalks down the hall, his luggage trailing behind him.
"Lou!" I scream pushing past the line and pulling him into a hug.
"Nor-" I feel his arms wrap around me once he regains his breath and his chest vibrates under me as he laughs. "Hey!"
"You've gotten so-" I swallow. "Scruffy." I push at the brown hair outlining his jawline. " You're so cute now." He smirks and pats my head.
"You're still a short little thing. When are you going to decide to grow?" I slapped at his hand and push away from him.
"You're not allowed to comment on my height."
"Come on, I haven't seen you in years you have to at least let me tease you about something."
"Or you could just say,'Norie, oh my gosh I've missed you." I smiled. He wrapped his arm around me and guides me as we walk.
"Norie, oh my gosh I've missed you!" I laughed and pulled him closer.
"Louis!" A voice calls out behind us. It made my skin freeze and my heart inflates. I knew that voice all to well.
"Harry, come on mate!." I stopped in my tracks and turned to see a tatted harry crossing over to us.
"Norie." He smiled." I looked from Harry to Louis from Louis to Harry.
"You've got to be kidding me."
