21. Best Day Ever
"Princess, wake up!" I open my eyes and look around. I see five idiots standing in front of me. I growl at them. "What the hell?" "Language..." Liam warns me. I glare at him. I guess you could say I am not a morning person. "I'm not a morning person..." I grumble. "Pumpkin, it isn't morning. It's like 2:45" Lou tells me while bouncing around. Damn... How does he have so much energy? But then I processed his words... My eyes widen. That means they are leaving soon. And then I can text Madison. My stomach growls. I groan, "What's wrong, princess?" I look up at them with my best puppy dog eyes. "It's just that... I missed breakfast. And lunch!" They are all trying not to laugh. I narrow my eyes at them. "Don't" and then I turn on my heel and walk downstairs and into the kitchen. The room erupted in laughter as soon as I walked out.
I rummage around in the cupboards for a few minutes until I find pancake mix. Then, I get out all the other ingredients and a bowl. Someone presses their mouth to my ear. "I'll do that, princess." Harry says taking the mixing spoon out of my hand. "I want to do it." I pout. "Nope, just sit down. We have a surprise for you before we leave." I sigh in defeat and he smirks, knowing that he won. As I sit down on one of the stools by the island. "Where are the other boys?" I ask after a few minutes of no one else coming into the kitchen. "Upstairs... Getting your surprise ready." I raise my eyebrows, "What is it?" He laughs. "Now, princess. If I told you it wouldn't be much of a surprise, then would it?" I stick my bottom lip out and give him puppy dog eyes. "Stop. Those don't work on me." I keep going and he sighs. "Fine." I smirk. "It is a.... present!" I roll my eyes and walk out. I go into the living room and plop down on the couch. I grab a nearby blanket and curl up. My eyes slowly start to droop and right when I was about to close them, someone sat down next to me on the couch. "Pumpkin, you can't be tired. You slept all morning ANNNDD you just woke up." I look up "Hi Lou." He looks at me, "How are you possibly tired?" I am about to answer when something hits me. And it makes me angry because I hadn't thought about it before now. I sit up. "I am tired all the time because you guys never let me do anything. You treat me like your five year old sister, who constantly needs to be watched. All we do is lounge around and watch movies and eat. I have gained weight since you guys brought me here and I was trying to lose weight before you guys kidnapped me. And I haven't been outside in like two weeks. I haven't talked to anyone besides you guys." He looks shocked and that just makes me even angrier because of course I have a right to lash out. I haven't even thought about it in a while but they kidnapped me. I glare at him and cross my arms over my chest. We hold each other's stares for thirty seconds before I realize that Liam and Harry and Niall and Zayn had all come in to the room. I knew how this was going to end. Them all defending each other and me defending myself and then me storming up into my bedroom. And then all come in and lay on my bed with me until I forgive them. But they are leaving and they might not all go if they think I am mad and might try to leave. So I do exactly what my brain is telling me not to and I sit back down and direct my words towards Louis. "Sorry, Lou. I just have a massive headache. It is making me angry that the pain won't go away." I look down. He lifts my chin up and gives me a big smile. I give him a small one in return. "It's ok, princess. I will get you some painkillers." With that he gives me a big hug and gets up and wanders into the kitchen. I look up at the other guys and my anger starts to slowly fade away. "Sorry guys. I just have a really bad headache." I give them a weak smile because it's true. I do have a headache, but that isn't why I am so angry. But they don't need to know that... "It's ok Em." Niall, Liam, Harry, and Zayn all chime. Lou wanders in with a few pills and a glass of water. "Here ya go, pumpkin." he hands them to me. I take them and pop the pills into my mouth, followed quickly by a big gulp of water. After that, the pills are gone and I am left with half a glass of water. I hand the glass to Lou and start to walk out of the room. "Where are you going , princess?" Zayn asks, grabbing me around my waist. I try to squirm and get out but it is like he has an iron grip. I stop struggling, turn around in his arms so I am facing him, and get real close to his face. "I HAVE TO PEE" I say loudly right in his face. His expression is priceless. He lets go and I run out of the room, up the stairs, into my room, and into my bathroom. I quickly close the door, pull down my pants, sit down on the toilet, and ahhhh. I feel so much better now. I didn't realize that I even had to pee until I had that water. I wash my hands and then walk back down stairs into the kitchen. Everyone is in there and I see a plate of pancakes with the word "Princess" written elaborately in syrup. I laugh. "Thanks Hazza." I grin at him and he grins back. I walk over and give him a hug and a kiss on the cheek and then jump into my seat and devour my plate of pancakes in a matter of minutes. Which is probably bad considering I am already fat, but no one sees be but the boys so... Whateves! "Emma, it is time for your surprise" Liam says. I stand up and Zayn puts his hands over my eyes and leads me into what I think is the living room. But I don't really know, all I can see is pitch blackness. "Open your eyes on the count of three." I feel Zayn lift his hands off my eyes. "One... Two...THREE!" I open my eyes and look around. And then I see all the wrapped up gifts. They are wrapped up in One Direction wrapping paper. These guys are such dorks. "OPPPEEEENNNN THEEEEMMMMM!" Lou whines. So I do. I start to open the presents.
