Once our hugging spree was over, we all went inside Harry giving me a piggy back because of my ankle. We decided to have a film day, so Harry set me down on the sofa and the boys began arguing over which film they wanted to watch first. I watched them amused. It just made me smile how finally things seemed to be sorting themselves out. I still noticed how Harry wasn't all that much talking to Liam but hopefully in time that would sort out. I knew those two hadn't talked together yet but I hoped when they did they both wouldn't be to angry with each other. I didn't want anyone arguing.
Niall suddenly spoke up louder than the rest whilst Zayn and Louis were battling over the same DVD. "Why doesn't Annie choose what to watch first?"
They all looked round at me. I only realised I was smiling like a complete idiot when Harry gave me a weird look, but smiled at me all the same.
"You alright?" asked Louis and he grinned at me. "You look either pained or extremely happy?"
"I'm alright, yes" I replied "happy."
They all smiled at me. "That's good" Harry said and then turned back to the pile of films. "Anyway Niall's right, you should choose."
"But that's not fair" Louis whined like a small boy "she'll choose a chick-flit girly film."
"No, I won't" I assured him. "I'm not into those sort of films."
Louis looked shocked and cocked an eyebrow at me. "So what films are you into?"
"Er, well not sappy ones, anyway what is there?" I asked.
Louis grinned. "Finally a girl who likes my sort of films."
He passed me over a stack of DVD's. There was the typical boys films like Avengers also including all of the Paranormal Activity films. I chose them causing them all to stare at me in shock.
"Seriously?" asked Harry and I nodded.
"Why not?" I questioned.
"Well.... they're like really creepy. Won't it be too scary for you" Louis replied.
"Yeah I know, they don't scare me that much" I answered and they all gave me a weird look again.
"Well, fine, but if you can't sleep tonight it's your own fault" Harry said and I rolled my eyes before he went to put the film on.
They all turned and Liam said "where we going to sit?"
I move up some more so I'm not occupying the whole of the sofa and the boys all scramble for seats. Unluckily there isn't space for them all and Louis gets left out. He huffs nosily but then gives me a mischievous smile. I stare at curiously and nervous about what he's thinking before his thought becomes clear. He picks me up, sits down, putting me on his lap.
"See we can all fit now" he comments but Harry doesn't look to happy about that fact that I'm on Louis's lap.
"You aren't very comfortable though" I complain trying to get up but he keeps a hold on me.
"Well 'scuse me" he fake acts offended smirking. "You're staying right here Missy."
"No I'm not" I say and try to wiggle free but not able to.
"Stop moving around like that, you're hurting my legs" Louis complains still looking amused with it all.
"Sorry" I apologize but am not sorry. "I'm sorry I'm that fat."
"You're not fat" Louis removes his smirk and says shaking his head at me seriously. He then smirks again, back to joking around. "You just have a really bony arse."
I don't respond to that, sighing and deciding to give up with struggling.
"See you know you want to sit here really." He laughs.
I again don't say anything, very aware Harry is looking still rather annoyed at Louis. I sigh as the film loads up and the starting music begins. I suddenly think of something.
"I'm disappointed with you all" I say, and they all look round at me.
"Why? What have we done?" asks Niall who is on my right, next to Louis. He looks so concerned about it.
I giggle. "Aren't you forgetting something?"
They still all look confused, Niall the most of all of them as he wears a questioning face.
"Really? You don't know" I muse and giggle again.
Suddenly Niall gets up suddenly, slapping a hand to his forehead and rushing out of the room. I giggle again, managing to get from Louis's arms and slipping from Louis's lap into Niall's now vacant space.
"What was that all about?" Harry asks.
"I bet she just wanted to get his seat" Louis said and he looked at me as he shook his head at me in offense.
I roll my eyes. "No I'm just taking advantage of the fact that he made a space for me."
"But anyway where has he gone and why?" Zayn asked.
"Popcorn" I tell them finally and recognition passes across all of their faces.
"Ah, I see now" Harry says and he rolls his eyes.
Soon Niall comes back with a huge bowl of popcorn already stuffing his face with it. He notices I have invaded his seat and pouts, swallowing his mouthful of popcorn.
"You stole my seat" he whines.
"Sorry" I apologize getting up, careful on my still hurting ankle. "Here you go."
"Thanks, but where you going to sit?" he asked sitting back down in his seat.
I look around at them all and then at Harry.
"I'll just sit on all of you" I tell them before climbing onto Harry's lap and laying my legs across all of theirs, my feet in Louis's lap.
"Why do I get the stinky end?" Louis complains at me sarcastically.
I roll my eyes but then threaten "I'd watch what you say if I was you. Beware I can kick you where it hurts right now."
He nods looking fearful. "Fair point."
I grin. "I wouldn't really do that" I say. "I'm not that mean."
"Oh really?" he questions, raising an eyebrow.
Before I can reply Liam suddenly speaks up. "Guys, seriously, we're supposed to be watching a film, not having arguing wars."
I nod and sigh. "Yeah Louis, stop making a noise."
He opens his mouth to argue back but thankfully Niall shoves some popcorn in his mouth saying "here you go Louis."
He coughs and splutters before finally chewing and swallowing the popcorn, sending me a dark look. I just grin at him, turning my attention back to the film and leaning my head against Harry's shoulder. Right now I feel okay, things are peaceful, well peaceful enough and luckily no one is shouting at each other. I guess sometimes it's okay to just be happy with things as they are. Things aren't perfect but I guess nothing is perfect, we have to live with it. I just hope that nothing else goes horribly wrong.
"Are we alright again Annie?" Harry suddenly whispers questioningly quietly in my ear, just so the others can't hear him I think.
I nod at him, hug him tight and whisper back "of course we're alright."
He smiles, squeezes me back and sighs. "I was being an idiot, I'm sorry."
I nod, whisper "it's okay."
He smiles, his face calm but I see that look in his eyes, one which sends shivers down my spine. He's still angry and I know it, I just wonder when it's all going to burst out. I hope not today because things are okay right now, I don't want them to muck up.
