Carry On Home

Kristen is an average 16 year old girl. That is, except the fact that her parents get divorced and everything went downhill from there, or so she thought. Her mom now lives in London,UK while her dad lives in Pennsylvania, USA. She goes back and forth every six months, changing schools and leaving her friends behind. Her life was turned upside down. What will happen when she goes to stay with her mom and runs into some people she never thought she would meet?


8. Man Hunt

Kristen's POV:

Dinner was pretty uneventful. We talked and ate like most human beings do. Since that night, we've hung out with the boys almost every day. Today, after going to dinner at Nando's, we went back to the boys' house they were staying in while they weren't on tour. It was huge! It had 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. There was also 3 floors, not including the basement, and everything seemed so expensive. They had a huge pool that was tempting to swim in but I didn't have my bathing suit.

All of us were sitting on the couch and floor while Daddy Direction was making us food, well more like burning the popcorn and who knows what else. I had to sit in between Louis and Niall. All of us were bored out of our minds.

"Lets play manhunt!!" I yell, suddenly getting the idea. Everyone except Erin looked at me confused. "I guess I have to explain. It's a game where you split into two teams. One team hides and the other has to find them. You have to say 'one two three your my man' to catch them. Once you catch them, they have to go to the jail. If one of your teammates tags the jail and says jailbreak, everyone is free. Once you get everyone in jail you win," I explained.

"Let's play in the house!! We can turn the lights off!" Louis yelled, basically in my ear. "I call Kristen on my team!" This started a big arguments on the team. Harry and Erin were together and Zayn and Cailey. The teams ended up being Zayn, Cailey, Erin, and Harry against Louis, Niall, Liam, and me. Yay, I'm with a bunch of guys. Note the sarcasm. Yeah, now that I know the guys better, I no longer fan girl as much as I used to and treat them like normal guys.

"You guys are all jealous that I have Kristen on my team," Louis says, sticking his tongue out and putting an arm around me. I just rolled my eyes. Until I heard a voice behind me.

"Get off my girl, Tomlinson, or you'll regret it," Liam growls, glaring at Louis as he walks into the room. He pushes Louis' arm off me, then puts his arm around my waist protectively and pulls me closer.

"Calm down, Liam. We were just messing around," Louis says, putting his hands up in surrender, which made me laugh.

"Don't worry Liam, he knows not to do anything," I say, laughing, then kiss him lightly on the cheek. "Now, who's ready for manhunt? I call hiding!" I say. Hiding is the fun part but I have a feeling I'm going to get lost in their house, especially in the dark.

"Me!" Everyone chorused. They started counting, while my team went looking for somewhere to hide. We ran up two flights of stairs s they couldn't hear us talking.

"I say we all split up so if one of us gets found, not everyone gets caught and another one can help us," I say and everyone agreed. Well there goes my chances of not getting lost. Oh well. "Ok, see you guys later!" I yell, not too loudly before running off, well more like attempting to run off. A wall appeared out of nowhere and I ran into it head on. Everyone just laughed at me and I got up and started to walk this time.

I think I found a decent spot. I was under a pile of clothes in one of the boys' rooms. I would be hard to see in the dark, which is good. I don't know where everyone else is, but I don't think anyone's been found yet, or else there would be screaming. As if on cue, I hear an Irish accent yell, "you'll never catch me! Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!" I hear multiple pairs of footsteps running above me and then I hear Harry's voice.

"Come out, come out, wherever you are. Niall was just caught and your boyfriend is next, Kristen. You can't hide forever," he calls. It reminded me of a horror movie. Oh yeah, I don't like the dark. I almost burst out laughing when I hear his scream "Ow, my fricken toe!" and then curse under his breath. I'm not the only one running into things now. I let out a little giggle, but must not have been that quiet, because I hear him running towards my hiding spot. The clothes start coming off and I run as fast as I can away from him.

"Shit!" I yell, but it was too late, because there just so happened to be a bed right next to the pile of clothes. I ran into it and flipped over the other side, landing on the floor. I guess Harry did the same because I now feel a really heavy weight on top of me. I opened my eyes to be face to face with none other than Harry Styles.

"Well this is a bit awkward, isn't it love," he says not moving. "One two three, your my woman. See what I did there? You're not a man so I said woma-"

"Yeah I get it, now get off of me Styles, before Liam sees you and kills you for touching me. I figured out he's really protective," I say, but wind up laughing just thinking of Liam getting mad at Harry for no reason.

"Wow, I'm so scared," he says, getting up and holding his hands in mock surrender. I just glare at him as he leads me to the jail. Now I, convinced things are appearing out of no where. First the wall and now the bed. I wish I wasn't so clumsy.

When we got to the jail, I see Niall waiting there. He looks at me and sighs before patting the seat next to him for me to sit down.

"So you got caught too huh? I would have made it past Cailey but a chair decided to magically appear," he says, laughing.

"Don't you just love the magical items that appear. I had a wall and bed appear and the bed was the reason Harry caught me," I said, laughing too.

Niall just smirks at me and raises his eyebrows. That's when I realize what I just said. These boys and their pervertedness.

"Wow, you dirty minded boy. I meant the bed appeared when I was running. I tripped and fell over the side of it and Harry did the same so he fell on top of me and let me just tell you that he isn't very light," I say, giving Niall a fake disappointed shake of my head when I was really laughing inside. He laughed and then we stopped talking.

A few minutes later, Louis comes in, cursing under his breath. He sits down next to me and puts his head on my shoulder.

"Umm Louis? What are you doing on my shoulder?" I ask, laughing and pushing him off.

"I'm tired and your shoulder looked comfortable so I decided to lay on it. Can I please? There's nothing else to lay against other than Niall and he's not comfortable," He asks, giving me the puppy dog eyes. I rolled my eyes and nodded. This is what our friendship is like. In the few times we've met, all of us feel so comfortable with each other. I finally processed that fact that Louis Tomlinson was leaning on my shoulder, but it didn't faze me as much anymore.

The silence was interrupted by footsteps and then Liam's voice coming down the hallway. He appeared from around the corner, followed by Erin.

"Jailbreak!!'" He yelled, grabbing my hand and dragging me down the hallway, followed by Louis and Niall. Erin wasn't too far behind, but Zayn and Harry appeared out of no where and Erin was suddenly right behind us. Liam, Niall, and Louis all got caught but somehow I got away without anyone noticing. I ran up the stairs before anyone noticed me. I decided to run up the last flight of stairs, but got to the top only to be met with Cailey. I tried to run back down, but tripped and fell down the stairs, getting caught by Cailey. Well, look at the bright side! I really got don those stairs fast.

When we got downstairs, everyone decided not to play again. Maybe it was mostly because of my clumsiness. My wrist hurt pretty bad, I had to admit, but I didn't want to tell anyone and have them get worried. That was, until Liam grabbed my wrist to lead me to the couch. I gasped and Liam let go quickly.

"Kristen, I'm so sorry! Did I hurt you? What's wrong love?" He asks, pulling me into a hug.

"Liam, it's ok. You didn't do anything. I hurt my wrist when I fell down the stairs and you didn't know. It's ok," I say when he released me. His face still shows worry. This boy worries too much.

"You fell down the stairs?! Why didn't you tell me and hat if you broke it?" He asks, starting to panic.

"Liam, calm down. I'm fine. It's happened to me falling off a horse before. It'll wear off, don't worry. It's not broken," I say, then give him a kiss to reassure him I'm fine.

"Get a room you two love birds! No more PDA!" Cailey yells, making me and Liam both blush. Zayn put his arm around Cailey and whispers something in her ear, making them both laugh,

"I'm not going to ask what you two are talking about but when did this happen," Erin asks, motioning to Cailey and Zayn, making them blush.

"Umm... About an hour or so ago?" Zayn says, but it comes out more of a question. We all 'aww' just to annoy them and they both roll their eyes.

"Are you girls staying the night?" Niall asks, looking at the three of us.

"I'll call my mom and make sure it's ok," I say, taking out my phone and dialing my moms number.

>>>>>Phone call:<<<<<

M: hello?

K: hi mom. Is it ok if me and the girls spend the night at Liam and the guys house? I promise we won't do anything. Please?

M: eh... Fine, but if I find out that anything happens, you are in huge trouble. Do you hear me?

K: yes. Thank you so much! We'll be home tomorrow. Love you.

M: love you too. Have fun and ill see you tomorrow. Bye sweetie.

K: bye mom

>>>>>End of conversation <<<<<

"She said yes!" I exclaim and everyone cheers.

"Lets watch a movie!'" Louis screams right in my ear, making me deaf in that ear I'm pretty sure.

"First things first, don't scream in my ear. Second, I agree to watch a movie," I say and everyone agrees.

"Soul Surfer!" Erin yells, and we all agree. It's mine and the girls' favorite movie, but I always cry so this will be interesting.

Before I know it, everyone makes a mad dash to the couch. Cailey and Zayn cuddle up on one side, with Niall next to them and on the other side is Harry and Erin, then Liam. That leaves me and Louis with no seats. Great! Note the sarcasm.

"How nice of you to leave me a spot," I say sarcastically, looking at all of them.

"Sorry babe, you can sit on my lap," Liam says, patting his leg for me to sit with him. I took this chance to get back at him for not saving me a seat.

"No, I'll just sit here with Louis on the cold hard ground. Come on Louis," I say, grabbing his arm and leading him to sit against the foot rest. A look of disappointment flashes across Liam's face for a second, but he hides it quickly. I feel bad for a second, but ill apologize later. Everyone gets quiet and the movie starts.

Since we've met the boys, I've actually become really good friends with them. All of them are so sweet, but other than Liam, I think I've become the closest with Louis, which may seem weird since we're always teasing each other. That may be true but I know he'd be there if I needed him. We've had fun times but we've also had a few serious talks. It's like he can sense when I'm upset and sometimes I just need a friend to talk to, other than Liam and the girls. I think Liam understands that and knows that we're really good friends, so he knows it's nothing to worry about between us.

We got to the part in the movie where the shark attacks Bethany and even though I've seen it a million times, it still scares me. I scream and hide my face in Louis' chest, who I totally forgot wasn't Liam. Whoops.

"Sorry Louis. I forgot you weren't Liam," I say, moving off of him. His expression changes for a second, but he quickly puts a smile back on his face. Was that disappointment or even jealousy? Probably not. Oh well.

"It's ok love. That's what I'm here for," he says, smiling at me. I laugh at that.

About halfway through the movie, I already having tears streaming down my face. The part where Bethany says 'I don't need easy, I need possible' gets me every time. I'm pretty sure Louis' shirt is soaked, considering he's been trying to calm me down since I started crying. Isn't he a great friend and I don't think Liam has realized yet or else he would have rushed over thinking something happened. As if on cue, I feel a hand on my shoulder and turn to see Liam looking at me, with a worried look on his face.

"Come here babe. It's ok," he says, picking me up bridal style and carrying me over to the couch to sit on his lap. I still don't know how he carries me. I weigh a lot!

"How the hell do you carry me? I probably weigh as much as a horse," I say looking up at him.

"Don't say that love. You're actually very light, not at all like a horse. Don't worry," he says, stroking my hair. I rest my head on his chest and continue to watch the movie.

By the time, the movie was over, I had managed to also soak Liam's shirt and cry enough to fill a pool. Wow, I'm so mature, aren't I?

"Let's get the comforters and bring them all down here to sleep in the living room. I think we have to keep an eye on these love birds and I'm not talking about me and Niall," Louis says, looking at each of us.

I'll go get them!" I yell, running up the stairs before anyone could object. I hear a pair of footsteps behind me coming up the stairs and look over to see Liam.

"Thought you might need some help carrying the comforters and finding our rooms. We can get all ten comforters, so that we use something to lay on too. You grab them from the rooms down here and I'll go upstairs and get the rest. Call me if you need any help," he says, walking away.

I go to the first room and grab the comforter and then the second. I seemed to be doing fine, until I got to the third. I figured out they're not actually that light and hard to carry. Only two more to go. I somehow managed to get all five, although I couldn't really see ahead of me. Suddenly, the floor wasn't underneath me and I feel myself falling. At least the comforters break my fall. I heard someone yell and could feel a bump underneath me. I quickly moved and found Louis underneath all the comforters. Whoops.

"Oh hey Louis! What are you doing under there?" I ask, playing innocent. He just glared at me.

"Well I was going to check and see if you needed help, but I guess I got my answer when I big, heavy ball of comforters came flying down the stairs and landed on me," he says, then gives up and starts laughing. Both of us start cracking up and literally rolling on the floor laughing. That was until we both felt a heavy weight land on us. I was now under at east five comforters and face to face with none other than Liam Payne.

"Guess I wasn't the only one having trouble coming down the stairs with all of these, huh," I say, laughing at Liam's horrified face. Wow, it's like his fall traumatized him. I'm used to it. That's the 4th time I've fallen today, second from stairs. Go Kristen!

"Yeah, they're harder to carry than I thought, but let's set these up. Louis, care to help us carry these?" He asks, looking at Louis and giving him the sweetest smile possible. I mean we did just both fall on top of him. I give him the puppy dog face and he finally gives in.

"Fine, but only because I really don't want you guys to fall on me again or hurt yourselves," he says, looking mainly at me. Yeah, I know I'm really clumsy. He doesn't have to make it so obvious. I just stick my tongue out at him, which makes both of them laugh.

We bring the comforters over to the living room and everyone helps set them up in sets of two, one on top and one underneath. Liam and I sneak away without anyone noticing to grab pillows. We get upstairs and decide to only take the pillows from down here since there's 4 on each bed, more than enough for everyone. I go to grab one of the pillows, then fell something hit the back of my head. I turn around to see Liam holding a pillow and smirking. I grab a pillow and we start hitting each other with them. It must have gone on for five minutes until I decided to sit down and let him hit me. He sits down next to me and puts his arms around me and pulls me on to his lap so I'm facing him. I look at him and he kisses me lightly on the nose, making me giggle. I quickly peck his lips but he pulls me back and it gets more passionate. I didn't want this moment to end, but of course we get interrupted by a whistle. We both look over to see Niall.

"Sorry to interrupt but you guys disappeared and I was sent to look. I saw the pillows in the hallway and came to the conclusion you were getting pillows until I saw this," he said laughing.

"Yeah, we got a little side tracked when Liam decided to hit me in the head with a pillow," I said, glaring at Liam.

"We'll I got the rest of the pillows. Yu guys just have to bring those down. Everyone's waiting," he says and walks out the door. Liam and I look at each other then each grab two pillows and go downstairs, without me falling this time.

We throw everyone two pillows and then Liam leads me over to one of the 'beds'. Mor like two blankets on top of each other but whatever. Since theres eight of us, we take jp pretty much the whole area, making it so everyone is really close. We both lay down and I snuggle up to Liam. He's just in a pair of shorts and I can feel his bare chest against me. On my other side is Louis and he is literally taking up the whole space. I do feel kinda bad that he doesn't have anyone to cuddle with but he seems fine. I lay there until I hear a voice in my ear and Liam starts singing Little Things:

"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

And it all makes sense to me

I know you've never loved

The crinkles by your eyes

When you smile

You've never loved

Your stomach or your thighs,

The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine

But I'll love them endlessly

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth

But if I do

It's you

Oh, it's you they add up to

I'm in love with you

And all these little things

You can't go to bed without a cup of tea

And maybe that's the reason that you talk in your sleep

And all those conversations are the secrets that I keep

Though it makes no sense to me

I know you've never loved

The sound of your voice on tape

You never want

To know how much you weigh

You still have to squeeze into your jeans

But you're perfect to me

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth

But if it's true

It's you,

It's you they add up to

I'm in love with you

And all these little things

You'll never love yourself half as much as I love you

And you'll never treat yourself right, darling, but I want you to.

If I let you know I'm here for you

Maybe you'll love yourself like I love you, oh.

And I've just let these little things slip out of my mouth

'Cause it's you,

Oh, it's you,

It's you they add up to

And I'm in love with you

And all these little things

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth

But if it's true

It's you,

It's you they add up to

I'm in love with you

And all your little things"

I fall asleep to his angelic voice in my ear. How did I get so lucky to have 7 wonderful best friends and an amazing boyfriend. Maybe, just maybe, my life will actually be good for a while.
