"Are you sure you have to go?" I say to El as I walk her to the heli, the next morning.
She sighs "Yes, but the shoot should only take a week, and then I'll be back. Try not to have to much fun without me" she says as she leans in and gives me a kiss before getting on the heli. I wave until the heli disappears out of sight. I turn and walk back to the house slowly, shuffling my feet as I go.
Liam and Harry are in the kitchen making breakfast. "Hey Lou!" they say as I walk in and plop down on a stool.
"Hey", I say, missing El already, she's either always off to a photo shoot or I'm off somewhere with the band. It sucks that we're always so busy.
"You good, mate?", Harry asks me.
"El's gone to a shoot, for a whole week..." I pout.
Harry comes and puts his arm around my shoulders, "You still have me, Boobear!" he says, trying to cheer me up.
"Gee, thanks...", I say dryly. Zayn and Niall walk into the kitchen. Liam grabs his laptop and searches something.
"Hey guys, lets go on an adventure!" he says, as he sets the lap top down in front of us. Our eyes widen, "COOL!" we all say together. "I'll make us a reservation at the lodge and call the heli back. Pack enough clothes for 3 days. Get the girls and we'll meet back here in an hour! Don't tell them where we're going, we'll surprise them! No one forget their passports! " Liam says, as we all run out of the kitchen, laughing.
The heli picks us up and brings us back to the airport where we board a small plane. Liv looks pale. We forgot to mention she should bring herself gravol. The entire flight takes approx. 10 hours, and by then, we are all feeling a little restless.
"Are we almost there yet?", Mia asks.
Zayn leans in and whispers "Not long now, love."
"Look!" I say, as I look out the window and see a huge mountain rolling out from underneath the plane. As we land, I see a sign that reads “The Alpine Slide, Park City Mountain Resort”. It's a big, huge slide, almost like a rollercoaster, that winds down the Mountain through woods and wildflowers.
"I wish El were here with me, she'd love this", I pout.
Liv gives my hand a squeeze, "It's only for a week" she says, and I squeeze hers back. Before getting off the plane, the boys and I all put on our disguises, which consist mainly of baseball caps and sunglasses.
"Lets get settled in our rooms first", Liam says, as we all enter the main lodge.
After the boys are done with their disguises and we exit the plane, I take a moment to absorb the quietness of the mountainside resort that lays before us. We walk into the main lodge and Liam checks us in. Zayn and I are in a room, Liv and Niall, and Liam is sharing with Lou and Harry. The rooms are decorated with 18th and 19th-century art, four-poster canopy beds and breathtaking views of rolling hills, meandering streams and flourishing gardens.
"Wow", I say looking around. Zayn puts our bags down and wraps his arms around me.
"Ready to have some fun?", he asks.
"I thought we already were?" I answer. He laughs and kisses me.
"Let's go!" he says, tugging my arm.
We all gather at the base of the slide.
"Ok, you guys will be going to the top on a double chair lift. Please line up here." an employee tells us. I can't help but notice Liam as he rides up alone. As we re-group at the top, we all get in line to go down.
"Can 2 people go down together?" I hear Niall ask, and an employee nods his head.
"Yes, we have double slides". Zayn and I are next to go. I sit in the seat with my back pressed into his chest and he wraps his arms all the way around my waist. "Your brakes are here, push them hard to slow yourselves down" the employee says.
"READY?" Zayn asks.
"YUP!" I answer, and he launches us forward. I hope Liv will be ok with Niall. This typically, is not her 'thing'.
"Hold on!", I hear Zayn yell.
"Too WHAT?!" I scream.
I'm laughing but terrified at the same time. About a quarter of the way down the mountain, there's a plateau where we slow down considerably. I relax a bit and start to enjoy myself. Flowers rush by us on either side. It's actually quite lovely. That's when I notice the plateau ends in a fairly steep incline. I scream as Zayn brakes to slow us down, but we're going to fast. The brakes don't work. As we spiral down the mountain, out of control, I start praying that I’ll see Liv again.
"We have to jump!" Zayn shouts from behind me.
"Are you fucking crazy!" I scream.
"Get ready!" he says.
"No Zayn, I can't!" I scream, gripped by fear. I feel him shift and then, before I have time to react, he pulls me off the slide. We tumble through the flowers quite a ways before we finally stop. His arms are still wrapped protectively around me.
"Are you alright?" he asks, clearly shaken. "Mia?" I start laughing before I can answer him. A look of relief washes over his face. Suddenly, he puts his hand over my mouth, "Ssshh!", he whispers as Niall and Liv go flying past us. They’re going so fast, they don’t notice us laying in the flowers. We wait silently and watch as Louis, Liam and Harry all take their turns and go screaming by us. After everyone's past I start laughing again. Zayn's laughing too.
I sit up and start dusting myself off, "I'm glad you're not hurt, I don't know what I'd do if you got hurt again" he says, sitting up beside me. He strokes my cheek and his face lingers in front of mine, our mouths only inches apart, . I tilt my head impatiently to close the gap between our lips with urgency, I can feel my stomach curl with anticipation. "Let's take our time. I want to savour every inch you" he says. I feel him pull me into a deep kiss and I groan as his tongue invades my mouth. He unbuttons my shirt and pulls it open as he kisses my neck, shoulders, and chest, teasing me with his tongue. He pulls me onto his lap so that I'm straddling him. My breath hitches in my throat when I hear him unzip his jeans. "I hope that these are not your favorite panties" he whispers, before slipping his hands under my skirt and ripping them off. I'm so turned on right now. I feel him cup my bottom in his hands as he lifts me up and slowly slids himself inside of me, filling every inch of me. He feels so good. I can feel it building inside me already as I start to move my hips on him. He wraps his hands around my waist and holds me still.
"Zayn, please! Let me go...", I beg him. I need friction. He smiles at me, a warm, sexy smile but continues to hold me still. I'm shaking now, I need the release so badly. Tears spring to my eyes. "Zayn! Please!", I pant. After a few more agonizing seconds he finally lets me go and thrusts himself deeply inside of me. I explode all around him, shaking and crying. He cups my face in his hands.
"Are you ok?" he asks, looking at me with growing concern.
"I-I can't catch m-my breath..." I stammer.
"Ssshh!" he whispers in my ear as he pulls me in to his chest and hugs me tight "It's ok, love. I'm sorry".
I wrap my arms around his neck and sob uncontrollably "I love you so much" I choke. He lays me down amongst the flowers and holds me until I stop crying.
As we lay in the flowers, I keep my arms wrapped tightly around her until I hear the crying stop. I hope I didn't hurt her somehow. Shit.
"Are you ok? D-Did I hurt you?" I ask, my voice breaking a little. Just the thought that I might have physically hurt her, by accident somehow, is unbearable to me. I see her look up at me with those beautiful brown eyes and I feel tears roll down my cheeks.
"Zayn, don't be upset. You didn't hurt me." she says, as she wipes my tears with her thumbs. "I can't describe to you, just how you make me feel. I just need, want you so badly. I didn't mean to scare you."
I wrap my arms around her and hug her close.
It's getting dark outside now as I stand up and regain my composure. "How do we get back" she asks, as I offer her my hand and help her up. Just then I hear the sound of an ATV roaring up the mountain.
"I think that's for us" I say, as it stops. An employee removes his helmet.
"Are you Zayn and Amelia?" he asks. We nod.
"There are some pretty worried folks waiting for you back at the lodge. I only have one helmet." he says, and I pass it to Mia. She sits behind the driver and I sit behind her, wrapping my arms around her waist. I nuzzle my face in her hair. The engine roars as the ATV makes its way back down the mountain.
We're greeted with hugs as we enter the lodge about 20 minutes later. "We're fine", Mia says and Liv wraps her in a hug.
"When we all got to the bottom and saw your slide was empty we didn't know what to think, mate. You both scared us half to death. What happened?" Liam asks.
"I'll tell you all about it over dinner, we're starving!" I answer him.
Mia leans in and whispers, "Well, maybe not ALL about it..." and I smile as we make our way into the dining area.
As we sit and wait for our food, Mia jumps up and shouts, "NO WAY! Liv! Look who just walked in!", as we all turn and follow her gaze. Lauie and Katie are standing in the entrance to the restaurant. Liv and Mia run to them, and they all hug. "Come sit at our table!", the girls say happily. We ask the waiter for 2 more chairs as we all reposition ourselves to accommodate our new guests. I glance at Harry and Liam. Harry has a huge smile on his face. Liam is as white as a sheet.
