9. Tea time
The next morning I woke up at the early hour of 9:30. I was the first one to wake up, not surprisingly. I went to the kitchen to make a pot of tea, last nights thoughts long gone. It wasnt until I was half way through my second cup of tea that it all came flooding back. That was also when Louis decided to appear. I was sitting at the kitchen table looking out the window. "Whats wrong love?" He said sitting next to me. "Nothing." I said sipping my tea. "Just tired." He looked at me with one sassy eyebrow raised. I knew he wasnt gonna let this go. "Ok, well, Harry was talking to Jamie yesterday, and after words he had this stupid grin on his face. Its just been bothering me. Thats all." Did i just say that? I mean, thats not what I was thinking about, but its true. Ive never told anyone that kind of stuff except Harry. I looked at Louis who's face had softened into a sympathetic smile. "Don't worry. Harry wont forget about you for your sister. He likes you too much. Believe me." He said the believe me part kinda like you'd say an inside joke to a friend, only I wasn't that friend. He must have realized because he quikly changed the subject.
We were talking for a little while when Harry and Liam came in. Thats when I got really nervous. I dont know how to act infront of him now. I patted the seat next to me for Liam. I hadn't really talked to him at all yet and Liam is always so nice to me. He came over and sat down giving me a warm hug from the side. "I see you've found someone new!" Harry said jokingly. "No i haven't. I just havent had a chance to be with my buddy Liam." Harry frowned and stomped over the the table like a toddler. "I just dont know what you see in him." He said annoyingly. "I like Liam. He's like a puppy dog." I patted Liam's chest and was very surprised to feel some serious muscles under his shirt. "A very.. buff puppy." They all chuckled and moved to a different conversation. I was actually surprised how easy it was to just act normal with Harry. Maybe things dont have to change.
It was another half an hour before Niall woke up and another hour after that before Zayn stirred. "Its aliiiiiiiiiiive!" Harry yelled as Zayn stumbled into the kitchen. He grumbled an walked towards the counter. He paused, then turned around and said "Is there any te-" Got a cup for you right here brotato chip." I cut him off holding up the cup of tea I'd saved for Zayn. "It is too early in the morning for me to be called brotato chip. But thank you." He replied taking the cup and sitting down.
We all talked together for a while. Laughing, talking, joking with each other. Honestly it was the happiest I'd been in a long time. My mom and I don't really get along that well and its mostly just the two of us which is super stressful for me. Someone was snapping right in front of my face. "Megan, MEGAN come back to earth!" It was Zayn. I guess he got revenge for the brotato chip thing. Jerk. "What." I said a bit annoyed. "You had another.. moment." Niall replied quietly. I was confused. "What do you mean a moment?" I asked. "You have the moments sometimes where you kind of zone out and stop listening." Liam said sheepishly. "Huh, oh yeah. I guess I do. Sorry guys I just tend to get lost in my thoughts sometimes." They said it was ok, and at that point they turned to the teasing. Its all good natured of coarse and even I laughed at my moments.
