I quickly re tie my hair before Niall opens the dressing room door.
"Let me warn you first that they will...they are...Louis handed out red cordial."
I sigh and shake my head.
"Course he did..."
"Before they hug you and stuff first, I wanna greet you guys properly without sharing the moment"
Niall hugs me tightly. I close my eyes embracing the moment, then open them as he lets go. Our eyes lock into each other for a while, but I manage to draw myself away. Sophie smiles weakly and stiffens when Niall hugs her. Niall frowns
"You ok there Soph?"
She nods, her eyes wide.
I roll my eyes and slap her gently across the face.
"She's a little bit excited"
His cute laugh once again fills my ears. I grin as he opens the door. I bite my lip as I try to comprehend the picture of a room with 4 shirtless one direction members. I shake my head before they notice me staring. The door slams behind us, causing everybody to raise their heads.
"If it isn't katie and Sophie!" Liam says with a cheeky smile
"Welcome, ladies, to a one direction fan's paradise" I giggle as Louis casually shows off his abs.
"Hey girls" zayn says simply while slipping a shirt on.
"Like what you see?" Harry says wiggling his eyebrows. I nod with a wide grin on my face.
"Naw zayn you don't have to put a shirt on" I say with a smirk. I sigh as I glance at Sophie to see her speechless. So much for the rules...I wave my hand in front of her face, causing her to shake her head and snap out of it.
I gasp as the boys pull us into a group hug.
"AHA! So Sophie CAN speak!" I hear Louis shout.
I push myself out of the hug.
"She's right, I couldn't breathe"
They laugh and gesture for us to follow them. We obey without question. I whisper I'm Sophie's ear as we walk behind them.
"You just saw your favourite singer shirtless; how do you feel?"
"Harry is so HOT"
I hear Harry chuckle in front of us.
"I said that too loud didn't i?"
I nod furiously.
"Here we are" zayn says, opening a door marked with "chill room"
I walk in and nearly scream in excitement as I look around the room, full of couches, gaming stations and a huge tv.
"Bags the bean bag!" I yell, flopping down into it. They laugh and sit down on the couches.
"Well girls, welcome to our lazy room!"
I giggle and try to sit up straight, only to sink further into the bean bag. I sigh, get up, and sit on the floor.
"You ok kat?" Harry asks me
I nod while screaming in my head.
He called me kat
"Yeah, the bean bag was annoying me that's all"
"Well don't sit in the floor, cmere!"
I sit myself next to Niall and grin secretly at Sophie as he puts his arm around me. Sophie rolls her eyes.
"Since we are gunna be spending about...3 hours with each other, why don't we play 20 questions?"
I nod as my stomach erupts in butterflies. 3 hours? That means we will be staying here till 1:30...with one direction...my god..
"Ok...first question for both of you.." Louis dramatically strokes his chin.
"Pink" We both say at the same time. I sigh and shake my head.
"Blue is so much better, Sophie"
She rolls her eyes.
"Agree to disagree. What about you guys?"
"ORANGE!" Louis shouts and stands up suddenly, throwing his hands up in the air.
I laugh with everybody else as he sits back down.
"Purple for me" Harry says
"Red obviously" zayn says throwing his head back dramatically.
"Hazel" Liam says softly.
"Blue" Niall smiles at me.
"Ok next. How bout we do you girls first, then you do us so it's easier?" Liam says, brushing his hair out of his face. I cover my mouth and look away, trying to hide my perverted mind. I glance out of the corner of my eye to see Harry and Niall trying not to crack up.
"Oh grow up guys" zayn says rolling his eyes.
I burst out laughing and take deep breaths as I nod.
"I'm sorry...I have a natural wrong mind"
"Ok guys, throw the questions at them. You ready?"
I glance at Sophie, then nod.
"Pizza...and salt n vinegar chips" I say instantly
(Btw guys, so it isn't really repetitive, when the girls answer, Sophie is always the one that answers second, katie being the first to answer. I also thought this was a good way to give more background information about everybody ;) enjoy)
"18 in August"
"18" (current date being 7th of June)
"Author...marine biologist...actor...singer or musician" I ponder
Niall gives me a surprised look.
"Cool...you play any instruments?"
"Mhm...piano,violin, guitar and I also play a mean recorder" I say the last bit sarcastically
"Wow. Could you sing for us?"
"Um...well...ok..is there a guitar I could borrow?"
They all nod and stand up.
"We will go to the music room"
As we all start walking out, I glance over to see Niall still sitting there.
"I'll wait..I gotta change anyway"
I give him a reassuring smile and put my side bag on the table.
"Look after my crap while I'm gone" I smirk and jog after the others.
I quickly jog to the dressing room, get changed, then walk back into the chill room to find the others still gone. I sigh and consider heading to the music room, but decide against it. They will be back soon anyway. I jump onto the couch and look around the room. My eyes catch on Katie's bag.
I really shouldn't...
I roll my eyes at myself, then quickly grab the bag and examine the contents. Our album, a permanent texted, her phone and some money. I smirk, grab the marker and quickly sign the album with a personal message;
Hey Katie, I hope that you enjoyed tonight and that I will see you again :)
I grin, put the album and marker back, and glance at her phone as it lights up with a game notification. I frown, then hold it up to examine the lock screen picture better. I tilt my head as The picture of a guy with Sophie and Katie kissing his cheek stares at me. I smirk and slide the unlock screen, aiming to lock her out, only to find there's no pass code lock. I laugh and consider all the possibilities, but settle on the best two. I put it onto camera and quickly take a selfie, then tap the twitter icon, posting the pic.
I smile as my mind reconsiders the second option I was about to perform. Should I really take the chance? Would she be the type of person to spread it all over the internet? I fucking hope not...
As I finish making a video for her to eventually find,
I open up notes and quickly type a quick message as the footsteps get closer.
NIALL WAS HERE:
Het katie, since you just so happened to leave your phone in plain sight, I decided to notify you on the danger of leaving your personal belongings with strangers. Please, text me at 05678932 (GUYS READING THIS STORY DONT CALL THE NUMBER CAUSE it's probably fake...) to find out more about safety ;)
I lock the phone, shove it back into the bag and casually sit back in a relaxed position as Katie comes in with an acoustic guitar, the others behind.
"Ok...well I guess I'll just start...I'm sure that everybody knows this song so join in at the chorus if you feel like it"
I grin as she blushes.
I take a deep breath in and pick up the..pick.. And test it's tuning before starting the intro. I smirk as the others laugh.
Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me
But bear this in mind it was
Meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
All makes sense to me
I know you've never loved
The crinkles by your eyes
When you smile
I glance up as zayn joins in, singing his usual harmony for Liam's part.
You've never loved
Your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back
At the bottom of your spine
Love them endlessly.
I continue to sing as the boys sing some harmonies. I see Niall tilt his head as I start to reach his bit. I mentally make it a mission to put all my effort into his solo, just to make him surprised. A wide grin spreads across his face as I sing the first part. Even though it's his solo, he joins in.
And You'll never treat yourself right darlin
But I want you to
If I let you know
Maybe you'll love yourself
I continue to sing the song out passionately, but put my full effort into the lat bit.
And I've just let these little things
Of my mouth
Cause it's you
Oh it's you
They add up to
I'm in love with you
And all your little things
I hear an eruption of cheers come from the room as I strum the last chord.
"Your really good katie, you need to do something about your talent"
I shrug, and glance at my watch. 12:00 already? I sigh.
"What's wrong Katty? We too boring?" Louis questions sarcastically.
"Hey, let's play some of the xbox"
I give a woop and jump onto one of the gaming chairs.
"IM PLAYING FIRSSTT!"
"Well let's see how good katie and Sophie really are. Louis, you verse katie first"
I glance over to see him crouched over by the mini.
"Why me? I'm busy"
"Your the worst player here, c'mon already"
By the time I finish my game if cod with Louis, he was nearly screaming in frustration.
"I can't believe you actually BET ME!"
He punches me softly in the arm and I laugh.
"Better luck next time"
Harry chuckles as Louis walks away over to the couches sulking.
"I'm Next" Harry says, plopping down onto then seat.
"YOU GOT TO BE BLUDEY KIDDING ME" I hear zayn yell as I defeat my second last victim. Sophie walks over and pats zayn's back.
"It'll be ok zen, it was only a girl who's probably going to remind you every day about it on twitter who bet you"
"NIALL! DEFEAT THIS GIRL AT THE DAMN GAME! FOR ALL OUR SAKES"
As I wait for Niall to get himself over onto the gaming chair, I allow myself to be proud of my achievements.I have bet zayn, Harry, Liam, Louis and sophie already and now I'm about to beat Niall, one of the best gamers I know.
"CMON RELOAD FASTER" I scream as niall's player gains on me. I frantically press buttons as we battle it outs
"AHAH IM GUNNA WIN!" I hear him yell
"You gamers are so competitive I hear Sophie mutter.
"NO!" I scream as my player dies. One more chance is all I have..
He has 2
I look through the scope on one of my guns to see Niall hiding beside a window.
"NO! GOD DAMMIT KATIE"
I grin and crouch behind a door as Niall enters.
"HA TAKE THAT NIALLER"
"GOD DAMMIT...HA TAKE THAT KITTY KAT"
I sit up straighter suddenly, then drop the remote as the game ends.
"YES! I DID IT! I OFFICIALLY BET EVERYBODY IN ONE DIRECTION!" I jump around with Sophie as the boys laugh.
"That was unexpected" I glance at Zayn
"Most people find it annoying and accuse me of cheating"
I look at my watch again. 1:40
"Ahh shit guys, we gotta go, besides, you guys need to sleep"
I try to ignore their pouting faces.
"We've had a great time" Sophie adds and blushes as I see Harry wink at her.
"We have too. Hopefully we will see you guys again at another concert"
I groan inside my head as a reminder of the fact that I'll probably never actually see any of them again, not in person. All my savings have gone to dad. I haven't got a car, no money for uni- dads relying on me to get a scholarship-...
We hug each other, say our last goodbyes and let the guard lead us out to the carpark. As we walk, I suddenly realise how tired I really am. I cover my arms and shiver as Sophie rings for a cab. The guard smiles, waves and walks back the way we came. My mind wanders to the boys. Did that really just happen? God, it seemed like it lasted 2 seconds. One minute we wear heading in, next we are getting a ride home.
I sigh and get my phone out as we wait for the taxi. Sophie does the same. I gasp and laugh as I look at my most recent post.
That cheeky little leprechaun.
