I hear knocking on my bedroom, the door suddenly opens to see Zayn appear behind it. Ugh. Who let him in?
"Morning Andy, did you sleep well?" He sits on a nearby beanbag chair.
"Dude, it's eight in the morning! Of course I didn't sleep well!" I throw one of my pillows at him.
"If the contract wasn't so strict I would of came at ten." He sighs. I could tell he was exhausted too.
"Well, since I can't go back to sleep what should we do first?"
"What do you like to do? You won the week to spend time with us so it's your choice."
Hmmm...I'm not going to mess with him because he's actually not annoying surprisingly. He seems pretty cool.
"You're the one that likes to draw, right?" I raise an eyebrow at him.
"Yeah, how'd you know?"
"Well, I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm trusting you with this, okay?" He nods. "When you guys left I decided to look you guys up on the internet and I just want to mess with the five of you. Don't worry, I'm not going to mess with you since you weren't annoying. You're actually pretty cool."
"Thanks. I'll take that as a compliment."
"It's the last one you'll ever get." I chuckle.
"So about drawing?"
"Oh yeah. Well see, I love to draw a lot when I'm by myself. Let's grab the paints from my closet and we'll head on back." I open my closet door and hand him a box of spray paint.
We head on back too see the big white canvas I put up against the wall outside. I never really painted with someone beside me so this will be interesting. I place the box on the small wood table as Zayn did the same.
"So is this why you wanted me to dress in old clothes?" He looks back at me.
"No, I just wanted you to look stupid." I roll my eyes and open up the cans and bottles of paint, taking out the brushes along with cloths.
"So...how long have you been drawing?" He starts to paint on one side of the canvas.
"Since I was about ten. It was...a big impact on my life." I nodded acting like he was looking at me.
"What made you decide to be an artist?"
What did make me decide? It's been so long that I don't even remember what inspired me to draw. I still remember my first drawing that made me proud, it was a drawing of the Mad Hatter that Johnny Depp played. I was pretty proud.
"Well, when I moved schools in the second grade, they had an assembly's about artists back in the day. In the fifth grade was when I actually started to get into drawing more. What about you?"
"I don't know. I just like to graffiti on walls and express myself. Looks like we have something in common."
"Yeah. I guess we do." A little smile appears on my face as I look up at him.
"You know...my first impression on you was that I thought you were trying to act cool with the boys and I yesterday and you were acting like you hated us, but when you told us you didn't like us it really changed my impression on you. In a good way now that I'm getting to know you more."
"You know, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover...it's not always the same inside." I look away and continue to paint.
"I'm sorry, it's just..."
"It's fine Zayn." I yell, cutting him off. It goes silent for a while. "You don't have to stay quiet, Zayn. I was just saying that you shouldn't immediately think someone's weird or mean or something else. I'm sorry for yelling at you." I look back at him.
"It's okay, but I'm truly sorry for immediately thinking you were trying to impress us."
"Me? Impress you guys? You have an awesome fiancé from another band, Louis has a sweet girlfriend, Liam, I don't know much about his relationship with his girlfriend, Harry, well, I think he's just trying to find the right girl to be honest, and Niall will always have Nandos by his side." He chuckles at the last part. "No, I'm kidding, Niall's waiting for his girl to come at the right time and it'll happen too. He's pretty cute." I shrug my shoulders.
"Did you just admit that you have a crush on Niall?" He raises an eyebrow at me.
"No, I'm just saying he's pretty cute and who would say no to him?"
"That's true. He always gets his food." He chuckles.
"Let's go get some lunch." We put down our spray cans and walk back inside the condo.
