I sat on a couch that was overstuffed with my three best mates and my boyfriend, bouncing my knee as nerves were slowly eating at me. The interview had only started about five minutes ago yet it already felt like it had been forever.
"You seem nervous Zayn." My head snapped up at the high pitched voice of the interviewer. I chuckled nervously, causing the boys to look at me oddly, and the interviewer to squeal. "So what's got you so nervous? Is it a girlfriend? A date later on, perhaps?"
I gulped, and tried to discreetly wipe my hands on my jeans, "erm.. No?" I cursed myself for sounding uncertain, I was only feeding her relentless questioning.
"No what?" She kept on questioning, I glanced at Liam, begging him to do something.
Not only did I not like all the attention on me, but I also felt like one more question and I'd snap and spill everything. I calmed slightly as Liam cleared his throat, directing the interviewers attention toward himself.
"Since Zayn seems nervous about something, why not ask the question we've all been dying to know?" She asked looking back toward the audience that was now screaming.
I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach, I couldn't say I was dating Niall, I couldn't say I was dating someone else cuz that'd not only be lying, but that'd also hurt Niall. I also couldn't say I had someone in mind that'd lead to both management and the boys questioning me.
"Ok boys, who's single? Who's with someone? And whose got someone in mind?" She asked leaning forward in her seat. "Liam?" She asked and I held in a sigh of relief as she started farthest away from me.
He chuckled and got the dreamy look he got every time he thought or spoke of Delilah.
"Ya.. There's someone." He said looking down at the floor, redness creeping up his neck.
"Awww! I wish we had more time to learn more about this special girl!" The interviewer squealed, causing me to flinch slightly by how loud she was. "Ok Louis, how are things with Eleanor? Do you think there's a ring in the nearby future?" She asked leaning forward in her seat.
Louis stiffened slightly but plastered an obviously fake smile on his face while Harry sank slightly, but straightened almost as soon as he sank.
"Eleanor's well, and in all honesty I don't know, we're both still young. I'm only starting my career." Louis said in a monotone, almost as if he rehearsed it.
"Well that's.. Nice?" The interviewer commented then moved to on to Harry. "Harry. So there's been quite a few rumors, but have you got anyone in mind?" She asked almost falling out of her seat, displaying her chest clearly.
"Yes.." Harry asked gulping, and scooting back into the couch, sweat gathering at his temple.
"Oh." The interviewer said with a slight frown, but almost as quickly, she replaced her frown with her usual plastic smile. "Now Zayn, since you are so nervous there's bound to be someone correct?" She asked, causing my heart to thud to a stop.
"Yes?" I said trying to sound cocky, but it came out more as a question.
"Does she have a name?" I felt anger grip my chest. Why did the person have to be a girl? Why did everyone assume I was interested in a girl, I mean, I was dating Niall, a clear male, after all!
"No." I spat and glared at the interviewer as she turned her hungry eyes on Niall.
"So Nialler, have you got anyone?" She said bending down so her chest was in plain view once again and fluttered her eyelashes.
I had to bite my lip to hold back screaming profanities at her as Niall looked like he was going to be sick. He glanced at me slightly, and I gave him a small smile.
"Y...yes." He stuttered and I had to hold back a cringe, he had just led her to believe he was hiding something. Which in fact he was. Something that would decide whether we kept our dream jobs or not. Great. Just great.
A/N so hey guys, as you can see the opening for Liam's girlfriend is no longer open. Big thanks to Delilah Arende, it means a lot to me that you'd be willing to be in my story!! Love your bio by the way!!
