After the party games, everyone kind of disassembled, going their separate ways. I honestly don’t know how it happened, but I ended up by myself. Again. I lost sight of Perrie, Sarah and Eleanor. One minute they were standing right in front of me, the next minute I am standing alone. I guess I wasn’t paying attention. And the boys are no where to be found either. No Niall.
I wandered over to the mountain edge, being lured in by the sight of the LA city again. I stood there just looking out below. I could not get over how pretty it was. A breeze ran over me, fluttering my hair around. It ran chills down my spine and I quickly became cold. I wrapped my arms around myself, knowing that it wouldn’t do much at all.
“Hi.” I heard a soft voice with a thick, Irish accent. I smiled when I heard his voice.
I turn around to see Niall, standing there, shoving his hands into his jean pockets. He gave me a side smile.
“Hey.” I said softly. “Where’d you go?”
“I actually went looking for you.” He chuckled. “I thought you’d be with the girls but you weren’t.”
“Oh… yeah. I got separated from them. I had no idea where anyone went.” I chuckled too. Niall smiled.
“Look, Rebecca…” He looked down and shoved his hands deeper into his pockets. “.. I want to apologize about before and the whole pool thing, I--”
“Oh, Niall. Its alright. I am just glad that you are ok and having fun again.”
He stepped closer to me, inches away from my face. “No, its not ok. You were only trying to help, and I just got… mad.” He looked down. “I’m sorry.”
I placed my hand on his shoulder. “Niall, I am serious. Its absolutely fine, please don’t worry about it. I understand. I would’ve been pretty pissed off too, if I got pushed into the pool.”
He looked up at me and smiled. “Thanks.” I squeezed his shoulder and smiled back. “So, what are you doing over here anyway?”
“Oh! I am looking at this view.” I let go of his shoulder and stepped back. “Its so beautiful.” I looked back towards the shining city lights.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Niall look at the city then back at me. “Yeah, it is beautiful.” He smiled a half smile again. Something tells me he isn’t talking about the city, but something else. I smile and look down.
“NIALL!!” I heard someone call off in the distance.
“Ahhhh! What is it this time?” Niall said, sounding annoyed as he looked around for the person who called him.
I look up and see Louis waving at us. I lightly tap Niall on the shoulder and point in Louis’ direction.
“Yeah, mate?!” Niall yelled back. Louis just tapped his wrist. Niall looked down at his watch. “Come with me.” He said as he grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the house.
I lead Rebecca into the house, my hand tingling from the contact of our skin. We started to pass Louis.
“Thanks mate.” I said to him and smiled.
“No worries.” He said back and winked. “Enjoy!” I look down at Rebecca, her face full of confusion. I smile to myself.
I led Rebecca up the two flights of stairs that lead upstairs to our bedrooms.
“Niall…” Rebecca chuckled. “… Where are you taking me?”
I look back at her. “It’s a surprise.” A big smile grows on her face. I smile back. I led her passed the hallway to our bedrooms, to another hallway with a white door at the end.
I let go of Rebecca’s hand to open the door and see another set of stairs. I turn back to Rebecca to see her looking up at the stairs, with a bigger expression of confusion going across her face. I smile at the thought that she has no idea what is coming.
I grab her hand again and start to lead her up the stairs. We get to the top of the stairs where there was a metal door above our heads.
“Where does this lead to?” Rebecca asks.
I look back at her and smile. “You will see.” She smiles and nods her head. I let go of her hand so that I could open the door.
“Be careful.” She says sweetly.
I unlock the door and push upward, letting the door fly up, turn on its hinges, and crash against the roof with a loud ‘thud’.
“That wasn’t being careful.” Rebecca says jokingly.
I turn back to Rebecca and smile. “Oops!” I said and shrugged my shoulders. Rebecca just starts to giggle.
I walk up the last couple of stairs until I am standing on the roof of the house. I turn around to face Rebecca and hold out my hand for her as she climbs the last couple of stairs herself.
“Watch yourself. Careful.” I say as she grabs my hand, stepping over the doorway.
Suddenly, Rebecca stumbles forward. I catch her and bring her to a stand still. I held her close. My right hand still holding her hand; my left hand resting on her lower back. I look down at her, realizing she was inches away from my face. I could feel her breath on my chest and face.
Rebecca looks up at me. “Thanks.”
I smile down at her. “That wasn’t being careful.”
Rebecca chuckles and shakes her head, looking back down. “I know, I know. Sorry. But its this stupid skirt. It got my feet all tangled.”
I started to chuckle. “Are you alright though?”
Rebecca looks back up at me and smiles. Our eyes meet and lock instantly. “Yeah… I’m… I’m… fine.”
I felt myself getting lost in her eyes. The deep ocean blue color, bringing me in, dragging me under and drowning me. I watch her eyes as they dart back and forth looking into my eyes. I felt a smile start to grow on my face. My mind is going absolutely crazy. Rebecca is still smiling that certain smile that never left her face.
We pulled away from each other at the same time. I felt my face and cheeks get hot. I look over to Rebecca and see that she was blushing as well. We both kind of stood there for a minute or two, not knowing what to do with ourselves. I look over to the edge of the roof. ‘They are going to start soon.’ I thought.
I look back over to Rebecca and catch her already looking at me. She quickly looks away and I start to chuckle. “C’mon, over here.” We walk over to the ledge of the roof and look around. Down below, everybody was gathering on the dance floor, standing there and talking.
“Wow.” I hear Rebecca whisper.
I look over at her and she looks up at me and smiles. She points over to something and I look over. You can see more of the LA city lights below and beyond that were mountains. It was really breath taking, but I found something else to be more breath taking.
“It’s so beautiful.” She says again in a whisper. I couldn’t say anything. I was afraid the wrong thing would come out, so I just nodded.
We were leaning against the wall that bordered the ledge of the roof. It was about waist high. Rebecca and I placed our hands on it and stood there.
A breeze came by and I could see Rebecca start to shiver. I look down and I could see goose bumps starting to form on her skin.
“Are you cold?” I ask.
She looks over at me and smiles. “No, I’m fine.”
“That’s a lie.” I chuckle.
“What?! No it isn’t.” She says as she shoves me in the arm, playfully.
I point to her goose bumps on her arm, and she shivers again. The goose bumps protrude again by the contact from our skin touching. “It’s as clear as day. You’re cold.” I say to her with a smile.
Rebecca smiles back. “Ok, you got me. Its just a little chill. I’ll be fine.”
“Here.” I say, as I take off my red cardigan.
“Oh no. You don’t have to do--” I cut her off by placing my cardigan around her and on her shoulders.
I held on to the ends of them and gave it a little tug, leaning a little closer. “But I want to.” Rebecca blushes and looks down.
I let go and step back, as I watch her put on my cardigan. She puts her arms through the sleeves and adjusts it until its comfortable. She pulls out her long brown hair from under it, letting it fall as it pleases.
She looks up at me. “Thanks.” I smile at her. “But you really didn’t have to do that.” She smiles and I just shrug. “Won’t you be cold now?”
I start to chuckle. “No. I will be fine. Rebecca, the first thing you should know about me is that I am always hot. Temperature wise that is.” Feeling myself blush. Rebecca starts to giggle.
“Oh yeah?! How so?”
I pat the wall of the roof with my hand and smile. “I will have you know that for the last album, I recorded it with no clothes on. I was that hot.” Rebecca starts to laugh. “And I plan on doing it again for this album. It was that fun.”
Rebecca continues to laugh and I smile. “Wait, you said you took your clothes off because you were hot. Not because it was fun.”
“Well, it was both.” I said with a cheeky smile on my face. I look at Rebecca and she smiles, shaking her head at me.
“Let me know how that works out for you.” I can tell she was being sarcastic.
“Alright, I will.” I said sarcastically back. We look at each other and share a laugh.
Another breeze comes by and I could feel the coldness rush through my body. I tensed up a bit and I guess Rebecca saw it.
“Looks like Mr. Hot is getting a little chilly.”
“Yeah, I guess my flame is going out.” I teased. Rebecca smiles and walks over to me. She stands next to me and I watch her as she wraps her arms around my abdomen. I feel the warmth of her body run off of her and into me. I like this feeling. I like the feeling of her being close to me.
She looks up. “Better?”
I smile and place my arm around her shoulder, keeping her there. “Much.”
She blushes and smiles again. “Why are we up here, anyway?”
Suddenly, I hear a whistling sound and then something exploding in the sky. There was a change of colors for a moment and I looked up. Fireworks. ‘Perfect timing.’ I thought. ‘The boys always know.’
I looked back down at her and smiled. I point up at the sky. “That’s why we’re up here.”
She smiles a big, wide smile. She places her head against my chest and looks up. I look up too and watch the fireworks as they explode and change the color of the night sky. We stayed in this position the whole time we watched the fireworks.
