I heard Harry's voice boomed as my eyes slowly fluttered open. "Lou, wake up! It's quarter to 1 already." Harry said, shaking me with fervor.
I threw the covers over me as the sun ray stung my eyes. "Okay, okay Harry. I'm up." I told him in an unconvincing voice. "Come on Lou, wake up." Harry kept shaking and it won't work. "Go Away." I told him and then just when I thought he stopped, he pulled up my blanket and was holding a Cup of Tea.
"No, no. Ha-" Before I could finish, he splashed Tea to my Face. Wasn't that my Cup of Tea? That doesn't matter anymore. I rubbed my face, my eyes feeling sore because of the heat.
"Get up now Lou, sorry about that." Harry added looking guilty and I nodded. It wasn't his fault, so yeah. I checked the clock, it indeed was Quarter to 1 o'clock.
I rubbed my hair and walked to the bathroom to freshen up.
When I finished, I ran downstairs to eat my Lunch. The boys all greeted me as I sat down on my seat which was in between Harry's and Niall's. "So, what are we gonna do today?" I asked them while chewing on my Pizza.
"Well," Liam started rubbing his chin in suspicion. "we can go hang out and watch a movie. Like what we usually do." He said with an unsure look.
The 4 of us shared glances and nodded. "We could just go hang out in a Club right after." I suggested and they just shrugged but nodded right after. "Make up your minds guys." I added with an unsatisfied look.
"It's alright." Harry said soothingly and I just slumped in my seat. "So uh, Louis. Tell us what happened last night." Niall started after a long silence.
"Oh, nothing big. Christopher just told me to lay off Ashley even if I don't do anything except do what we usually do, hang out." I explained, taking a sip from my cup of tea. "Whoa dude. That's not cool." Zayn said. "You're her best friend, he doesn't have the right to push you away from his Girlfriend."
"Unfortunately, he does." I protested looking down. "Come on, it's her boyfriend. He's protecting her." I added and Zayn rolled his eyes. "Mate," Niall began as he got his 4th plate of Pizza. "just because he's in a relationship with her, doesn't mean he has to let you stop hanging out with your own best friend. It's unfair."
I sighed. "Thanks for the Encouragement" I said with a smile. I checked my phone and there was a message from Ashley. Guess he didn't tell her to do anything.
Hi Lou! You free to go out later? :) - Ashley xx
I glanced at the boys who seemed determined to know what the message was. I took a deep breath and replied:
L: Sorry Ashley-poo. But the lads and I are gonna have a bonding time. Maybe next time? :)
A: Oh, it's alright. Hope you guys will have fun!! :)
I stared out of the window as I placed my Phone in my pocket. "Lou, wasn't that Ashley?" Niall asked, his mouth filled with Pizza bits. I nodded and tapped my fingers on the table with a rhythm.
"What'd she say?" They asked in unison, they were so curious about my love life. "She just asked if I was free today. Then, I rejected her invitation." I told them glumly, but not really making obvious. "That's sad man, but why isn't she with her Boyfriend?" Zayn wondered and I just shrugged. "Beats me." I said and ate my last Pizza.
"Now hurry up lads, we have a movie to watch!" I demanded and they hurried up. "Yes Master." I heard Harry mutter out and I just walked out with a proud smile.
-A few hours later."
"Man, that movie was great!" I exclaimed as we walked around, looking for a place to eat. "What do you wanna go eat?" Liam asked, mainly asking Niall. All our heads shot at Niall and he looked around.
"Nando's anyone?" He asked and we all agreed. I have to admit, Nando's was good.
We entered the Restaurant and got our seat. The restaurant was packed with people. As we got our order, I looked at the group of people.
I squinted my eyes as I saw someone who was so familiar. Then, I realized who it was. "Christopher." I mumbled then the boys ears perked up. "Who?" Harry asked. "Ashley's Boyfriend, what's he doing here?" I said pointing at the table in the corner.
Liam lowered my hand. "Mate, it's bad to point. So, what's the problem? Probably just a bunch a friends of his" He asked. I shook my head. "But, he got his arms over another girl." I told them still staring at the table.
Then, Christopher held her hand. She giggled as he kissed her cheek. I felt Anger rise up from inside me. "He's cheating on Ashley!" I exclaimed and the boys stared at them in shock. We only stared at them in total silence, even when our food arrived. It was a quiet meal, nothing special.
Then, as Harry finished eating, he finally spoke up. "Lou, there's a chance." I looked at him with my eyebrow raised. "What are you-?"
"Tell Ashley what you saw, tell her everything. But, if you want, you could confess your love for her. That's better. And who knows, she might realize you're hers from the start." He explained before letting me finish my question. "Let me think about it." I told him after a pause.
After finishing my food, I looked at the boys who were staring at me. "Must I go to her house now?" I told them and they nodded. "Hold on, but just to make sure, how about you go approach Christopher and ask her about the girl?" Liam suggested and I bit my lip before nodding.
I walked to the table where Christopher was now alone with the girl. They were chatting and giggling, their hands intertwined together. I cleared my throat before getting their attention.
"Hey Christopher." I finally said and they looked at me. The girl looked at me with a confused look while Christopher's eyes widened as he looked at me. "Louis, huh, hey. What are you doing here?" He said nervously, I could feel him sweating. "Who's this fine lady?" I asked him with a smirk. "Uh, this is Jade." He told me casually.
"Technically his Girlfriend." She added with a proud smile. "Nice to meet you. Are you a friend of his?" She said, raising her hands up. "Oh, apparently, just an acquaintance. I thought you were dating my Best Friend Christopher." I told him and he bit his lip. "Well, that was before. Ask her, didn't she tell you?" I could sense he was lying. "She didn't mention anything, can you tell me the details?" I tried forcing him to tell the truth until he pulled me out of the restaurant to talk. "One Minute love." He said before leaving.
Once we were out I just smirked at him and he glared at me, clenching his fists. "Well played Lou. But, I don't think she'll believe you since she just met you, no?" He said with his arms crossed across his chest.
"Listen Christopher. I know you're cheating on Ashley, just spit it out." I told him with a hint of anger in my voice. He furrowed his eyebrows. "What are you gonna do about it smart guy? I can date whoever I girl I like, so lay off." He growled and I gave him a playful smile. "Well, I might as well tell her everything, too bad she might break up with you." I shrugged after finishing and he grew pale. "Sh... She won't believe you." He managed to sputter out and I raised my eyebrow. "What makes you say that? I'm her best friend."
"You're just her best friend. But, she loves me. She won't believe anything you say. I'm telling you, you're just gonna waster your time telling her that." He explained and I grew angrier, but controlled myself. "We'll see about that. Get ready Christopher." I told him before walking back to the Restaurant, him following me back in.
"So, what? What did he say?" Harry asked. I looked at me intently. "We have to tell her. Everything." I told them and they nodded as we stood up and ran to our car.
