Niall couldn't keep his eyes off of me the whole entire concert. I didn't want to date him for a little while. Yes, I have been going back and forth if I want to date Niall again or not. It's been a long three years of arguing back and forth with myself.
"Alice..." Veronica said while the boys were changing.
"What?" I responded.
"You have to take to Niall sometime soon."
"I'm still not ready though Veronica..."
"Please. You can't ignore him forever."
"I'm thinking about talking to him."
"We have backstage passes you know."
"I hate you sometimes."
"But you still love me."
The concert finished and we were escorted to backstage. I stood there awkwardly and looked down at the ground. Veronica nudged me and I saw White Adidas shoes.
"S***! I thought. "He's seen me!"
(A/N sorry for the language. I thought that it would help bring the story alive!)
"Alice?" I heard his thick Irish accent say.
I stood there saying nothing. My eyes were glued to the floor. I could hear Liam talking to one of the bodyguards about letting Veronica and me in. I felt strong arms guide me through the rope. I could see shoes that Liam would wear and I looked up to see Liam. He smiled down at me and kissed my forehead. I could tell where we were heading. We were going to the lounge area.
"Liam..." I said.
"Yes?" He responded.
"I don't feel comfortable being here...I can't face Niall again..."
"It'll be fine. I'm here and so is Veronica."
"Thanks Liam. This is why I love you."
I kissed his cheek and he led me into the lounge area. I could tell that Niall was watching me...contently. I stuck by Liam and then I saw Sophia sitting on the couch.
"Sophia!" I yelled.
“Alice!” Sophia responded.
We hugged and then we sat down on the couch. I caught up with everyone. Niall was a little nervous to talk to me about his past three years. I could tell that he wanted to ask me something and it's the something that I have been waiting for…for a couple years.
“Niall...Barbara's here for you,” Paul said.
“Who’s Barbara?” I whispered to Sophia.
“Niall’s so called friend, even though he takes her everywhere when he’s in London,” Sophia whispered back.
I nodded. Barbara walked in and she looked like a model. I know that Niall doesn’t really like to date models. I noticed that when Barbara saw me, she looked disgusted.
“Niall...why are there two poor people here?” Barbara asked.
“Just so you know Barbara…” I said. “I’m Liam Payne’s cousin and I don’t like how you called my best friend poor when you're the snotty rich one who wants Niall’s undivided attention. I think you can leave now.”
I smiled and sat down. Barbara stormed out of the room and Niall didn’t run after her. He looked at me for a few minutes and then ran out after Barbara. I knew that Barbara was probably going to break up with him after what I had said.
