I finished putting my things away. I put a picture of my brother, best friend, sister, and I on my dresser. I noticed Niall was staring at it curiously.
"Who are they?" He asked.
"My brother Joesph, my best friend Ariel, and my sister Ash." I smiled thinking about them.
He smiled softly before going back to his guitar. I heard the front door open and shut. So I was guessing that the other two guys were here. I looked up at the sound of our bedroom door opening. It was Liberty. She smiled softly at Niall before looking at me.
"Come meet Malik and Payne." She said as she took me by my arm.
I followed her down the stairs to see Sarah sitting on the couch arguing with Harry it seemed. I looked over by the door and noticed two other males with Louis. They were talking and laughing. Then one noticed me and smiled which caused the others to look at me.
"Guys this is Xena." Louis said grabbing my hand pulling me over.
"Hi." I smiled softly.
"Hello I'm Zayn." The one with black hair that was in a quiff hairstyle. He had tattoos up his arm. They looked very unique.
"I'm Liam." The one with muscles and short brown hair said.
I could feel them tracing my body with their eyes. This is going to be one long year. I sighed and headed back up to my room. Niall was sleeping it seemed. He looked so sad. I pulled the cover over him and watched as a smile came across his face. I sat on my bed and got on my laptop. I had a message from Ariel. She said she missed me already. I knew some of it was true but at the same time she had my sister and brother. Ariel and my brother had a thing going on. They tried hiding it from me but I found out. I pretended that it didn't bother me but it really did. The sad part is that I found out the same night my ex Jake died. That was the worst day ever.
"Something wrong?" I looked up from my laptop to see Harry standing at the door.
"No everything is fine." I lied.
"Ah okay." He shrugged and walked away.
I sighed and started to look through Ariel's pictures. She had took a lot since I left. There was a lot of her and Joey. Then a few of her and Ash. With the description "Besties for life". I sighed and shut my laptop. I laid back on my bed and stared up at the ceiling before I heard a soft knock at the door. I knew by the sound that it was one of the girls. I sat up and looked over. It was Sarah.
"Wanna go shopping with Lib and me?" She asked.
"Sure." I smiled.
I put my boots back on and headed down stairs to them. They were waiting at the door for me. The other boys were in the living room watching Soccer.
"Where are you guys going?" Harry asked tracing my body with his green eyes.
"None of your business." Sarah sassed.
"Whatever." Harry hissed.
"Have fun. Don't let them bite you." Louis said winking at me.
I smiled and headed out the door with the girls. It was a warm day so we walked along the strip. I just couldn't help thinking about Ariel and the others.
"Are you alright?" Liberty asked.
"Yeah just thinking." I sighed.
"Well lets get your mind off of things." Sarah winked at me.
They pulled me into several stores and bought me a few things. They did get my mind off of it. I was very thankful for it. When we got home and inside the boys were wrestling on the living room floor. It was Liam and Louis. We went upstairs before they even noticed we were home. I walked into my room and set my things on the bed before realizing Niall was awake.
"Thank you." He said softly.
"For what?" I asked spinning around.
"Covering me up." He smiled closing his eyes.
"No problem." I smiled back at him.
