I groaned at the sound of the annoying buzzing coming from the stupid alarm on Niall's dresser. I threw my covers off my body and made my way over to it. I picked it up in my hands and felt a hand on my waist then another on my wrist. I looked over my shoulder to see Niall standing behind me only in his boxers. He looked half asleep.
"Please don't break my alarm like you did yours..." He mumbled in a sleepy voice. His eyes sparkled brighter than usual. With my head turned like that his lips were only inches away from mine. My eyes were locked with his even when someone burst through the door. I turned my head again to see Liberty. She looked so flustered, but the look faded and a look with curiosity. Niall let go of me and took away his alarm as my face was tinted with a bit of red.
"What's wrong Lib?" I asked pushing my hair back.
"A car just pulled up. I think it's our new roommate." You could tell by her voice she wasn't thrilled.
We walked down the stairs to see Louis stretched out asleep on the couch. Liam and Zayn were in the kitchen cooking breakfast, or at least trying to.
"Not again." Liberty sighed.
"What?" I asked.
"Ever since you left Louis's been sleeping on the couch." She frowned. "Harry keeps locking him out of the bedroom."
I frowned and walked over to the couch. I bent my upper body over the back of the couch and stared down at him. When the door slammed opened he flicked his eyes open in a hurry. He moved his head up without even noticing I was looking down at him. Our lips brushed against each other before we moved our heads away. I felt my face getting warmer as I slapped my hand over my mouth. He slapped his hand over his mouth as well. I turned my head to see two guys bringing boxes inside. I walked past them with Liberty next to me.
This girl was skinny and seemed to be utterly perfect. She noticed Liberty and I standing on the porch staring at her. She turned and gave us both a soft smile.
"What's your name?" Liberty asked.
"Bailey." Her voice shocked both Lib and me. A perfect voice to match a perfect girl. She walked towards us and just as I was starting to begin to think that there wasn't a single flaw in this girl she trips over nothing. She was a clumsy girl. I had to slap my hand over my mouth to prevent myself from laughing. After I got control Liberty and I helped her back to her feet. Then the boys started filing out one after the other. She introduced herself and I noticed she couldn't stop smiling at Niall. For some reason this really bugged me. We went inside and started talking in the living room and her eyes kept going back to Niall. I wanted to slap her so bad.
"So what's the rooming deal?" She asked.
"I have no roommate..." Liberty mumbled.
"Oh? Why doesn't Xena room with you?"
"Because when I came here, Sarah and her were roommates." I muttered.
"Oh then who do you room with?"
"Niall." A smirk formed on my lips as I saw the disappointment in her eyes. It quickly went away though. I groaned.
"If you don't want to room with that, you can room with me." Harry spoke up.
"Shut up Styles you have Lou." I hissed.
"I don't want to room with a liar." He growled.
"And I bet he doesn't want to room with a whore like you." A smirk appeared on my face as his mouth dropped.
"I think I'll room with Libby for now." Bailey smiled.
For now? What did she mean by that? And why was she smiling at Niall again?!
"I can switch with Lou." Liam sighed.
Louis sat quietly. He looked like he was thinking about something. I wonder what was going through his head right now. Liberty and I helped take Bailey's boxes up to their room. When we were up there she started talking again.
"So who's all taken?" She asked.
"No one." Liberty said.
"Good." She smiled.
"Why?" I hissed.
"I think Niall is cute. I like him." She started giggling. "You should switch rooms with me Xena."
'Uhh...." I muttered.
"Niall already likes someone!" Liberty blurted out.
"What?" Bailey and I both said with shock.
"Yeah...plus Xena and him already bonded..." She muttered.
"Aww bummer...oh well I'll get him to like me!" She giggled again.
I groaned and walked back to my room. Niall was standing in front of his dresser with only a towel wrapped around his waist. I shut the door behind me and fell back on my bed letting out a huge sigh. He sat down with only the towel on and smiled at me.
"Something wrong?" He asked.
"I already don't like Bailey." I groaned.
"Oh I find her rather interesting." He smirked.
I narrowed my eyes at him which I guess he found funny because he started laughing.
"Well she likes you already." I groaned. "And wanted me to switch rooms with her too."
"Oh really?" He smiled.
"Yeah but Lib said you already liked someone and that we already have a bond so..."
"She said I liked someone?" His eyes widened and his face went a bit red.
"So it's true?" I questioned.
He didn't say anything.
"You told me that I shouldn't walk in here with only a towel on but you do the same thing!" I growled and stood up going through my dresser now. Then I felt him wrap his arms around me and bury his head in my neck. I froze staring at the picture of me and my brother.
"Are you jealous..." He whispered in my ear causing sparks to go down my spine. I bite my lip trying to fight this feeling.
"....I...." I stuttered.
"Maybe this should be payback for kissing Louis." He whispered in my ear causing my eyes to widened. He saw that? But it was an accident caused by fright! He untangled his arms and walked back towards his bed. I spun around and pulled on his wrist.
"That was an accident! Caused by those men barging in the door!" I pleaded my case. He turned around and stared at me before yanking on my arm pulling me closer to him. He put his hands on my cheeks and stared me in the eyes. Then all of a sudden his lips were locked with mine. We heard the door creak open and he quickly pulled away from me. I turned to see Bailey smiling at Niall. She handed him some chocolates and he smiled at her before kissing her cheek.
About an hour later I laid on my bed staring up at the ceiling. I wanted to scream because I felt so much anger inside me right now. The boys and Bailey were at some party. Liberty was taking a bath. All of a sudden I smelt smoke. I jumped off my bed and noticed the house was filled with smoke. I ran into the bathroom just as Lib was getting dressed.
"Hurry up we need to get out!" I yelled.
"Why?" She asked as I pulled on her arm.
We ran out of the house and stared at it as the flames were taking over. She quickly called 911. She was shivering so I took my hoodie off and allowed her to wear it. I didn't know it then but it was the hoodie Jake gave me. It was his hoodie. After a few hours the flames were gone and the others were arriving back. I was talking to the firemen while Bailey took it upon herself to yell and blame Liberty for the house catching fire. It did indeed come from their room but it was Bailey's hair iron thing. The principal came out and started asking me questions. I told her what needed to be said and she said that there was another house for us to live in but it was a bit farther from campus. We all said that was fine and she gave us the address. The firemen aloud us to get whatever was able to be saved. I noticed that the one thing was about to change when we moved. I hated the thought but now I knew that Bailey was going to room with Niall even if I hated it. Plus now we're going to have to worry about another new member.
