I pulled up to the paint balling place. I got out of the car and met Liam at the front of the car. We sat on the hood as we waited for the lads to show up. I held onto Liam's hand and he rested his head on my shoulder. Pretty soon after the lads showed up and we walked inside to get our gear. We had to go through a quick safety course before we could play and get our guns. After a big man with full sleeve tattoos handed each of us guns, each with a different color so we knew who hit who. Then he handed us our padding. We quickly suited up and then made out way to the playing arena.
Niall, Louis, and Harry quickly ran in different directions. I took a hold of Liam's hand and pulled him behind a old car. We ducked behind and waited for the starting bell. When it sounded green paint balls started flying our way. Niall. It gave away his position. I peaked though the broken windows of the car and saw Niall's arm and started shooting at it.
"No fair mate!" Niall called out as my pink pain balls hit his arm.
I laughed as I ducked back down and gave Liam a high five. We both peaked around the edge of the car and started shooting. I hit Louis who cried out. I looked behind me to see if Liam saw my awesome shot but he was running down the middle of the arena. I ran after him. Shooting in the others directions. We dove behind a large crate. I landed on top of Liam and I pulled his helmet off him and kissed him.
"Your good at protecting me," he said as he kissed back.
"Gross! Lets just play!" Niall shouted as I felt a hard sharp pain on my back. I knew I had been hit. I turned around and saw Louis, Harry, and Niall all laughing.
"Your gonna get it!" I called out as I jumped up and started shooting at them. They scattered in different directions again. All hiding behind different objects. Liam ran up behind me as we circled around and shot at anything that moved. It seemed like forever before the ending bell rang. The lads came out from their hiding spots and we removed our helmets. We were all covered in paint. The sweatshirt I gave Liam looked cool with the different color paint spatters on it.
We gave our gear back and headed out to our cars. Niall wanted to get a ride home with me and Liam. I agreed to take him home and he hoped in the backseat. I gave Louis and Harry a hug goodbye and got into my car and drove home. We dropped Niall off, who tried to convince us to go out to the pub. Liam shot that idea down. He looked a bit sad as he walked up to his house, but Liam said not to worry about him.
Liam and I walked into my flat. Loki was laying on the couch and he bounded over to us as we walked in. We said hi and then got ready for bed. I walked into my room and left the door open just a bit. I laid down and few seconds later the door opened and Liam came walking in. He smiled at me and he got in under the covers with me and laid his chin in the crook of my neck.
"Good night Zayn," he whispered as he kissed my neck.
"Good night Li," I said as I drifted off to sleep.
