17. Chapter 17

Niall's POV

I wake up early Saturday morning. Liv's still sleeping, her body draped over mine. I run my fingers lightly up her back. I can't believe how quickly the week has passed. I wish I could slow down time. I don't know what I'm going to do if she decides to go back home at the end of the summer. I want her with me always. My mum, dad, brother and step-dad are coming on Monday for a couple of days. I can't wait for them to meet her. I know they'll love her, too.

My phone vibrates beside me, I stretch carefully trying not to wake Liv.

To: Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik.

Sending the heli to pick you up. Local kids' shelter in need of some extra hands. Thought it would be good publicity. Be ready in an hour. Uncle Si.

I can't help but groan and Liv opens her eyes. "Good morning beautiful", I say, as I lean in and kiss her.

"What's wrong?", she asks.

I show her the text from Simon. Then, without saying a word she grabs my phone.

To:Uncle Sime could they use another 2 sets of hands. Liv & Mia would like to help too. Niall H.

"You don't have to come with me. I'm sure you'd have more fun if you stayed here with the girls?"

"I'm not going for you Niall, and I can't think of a better way to spend my Saturday", she says. My phone vibrates again.

To: Niall Horan If they want. Uncle Sime.

I watch completely taken aback as she jumps out of bed and runs to the bath to get cleaned up. I can tell she's sincerely excited. She works with kids back in Nova Scotia and she's told me before how much she likes them. I shake my head smiling, she never ceases to amaze me.

"Heli's here!", Zayn shouts. I watch as Liv and Mia come running down the stairs, breathless.

"Ready, let's go" they say in unison before racing off towards the heli. Zayn and I look at each other and chuckle.

"Ok then," I say, as I shut the door behind us. "Did you remember a gravol", I ask Liv.

She shakes her head, "No, I don't need them anymore. Too bad Lauie and Katie didn't want to come", she says. This girl is truly one of a kind. I can see her changing everyday and it just makes me love her more.

Zayn's POV

I was a bit surprised to see the response Niall texted back to Uncle Sime earlier, and even more so when I showed it to Mia and she was thrilled. I know she works with kids back home, but this just doesn't seem like it would be her kind of thing. She surprises me constantly. I can tell she's genuinly excited about helping these kids. It takes about 45 minutes to get to the shelter.

"I think that Liv and I will go in together after you guys", Mia says. Liv nods. We all look at each other.

"Why?", I ask.

"This is a 'One Direction' thing, not a 'One Direction and their needy girlfriends' thing", Mia says.

"I'm not needy...", Liv replies, looking a little wounded. Mia smiles.

"She's right though, you guys come find us later. When you're done, ok?"

We shrug our shoulders and get out. As we enter the building, the paparazzi swarm. I glance up and notice the girls slip right on by, unnoticed. Niall and I look at each other and chuckle. "They're definitely shrewd", I whisper, and he shakes his head in agreement.

We spend the next 3 hours helping to hand out food, while PR guys snap their pictures, and then we put on a mini concert. The kids that live here have either been abandoned or abused. It's really quite sad. Some of them are so young.

"Thanks for letting us come help today", we say to John Taylor, the director of the shelter. The photographers have all packed up and gone.

"No problem, come back anytime", he says.

"Um, there are 2 girls that came in today to volunteer. Can you point us in their direction?", Niall asks.

I see John's eyebrows shoot up, "They're with YOU?", he says sounding shocked.

"Yup," Niall says, smiling.

"They've been entertaining some of the kids all afternoon. Follow me". He leads us to a large room with swinging doors. As we watch through the window I see Mia playing some sort of hand game with a little dark haired girl, they're both smiling. Liv is playing 'Simon Says' with a small group of kids. When she doesn't say 'Simon', I hear her say "I tricked you!" and about 8 kids pile on top of her knocking her to the ground.

"Most of the kids in this room, haven't played any games since they got here. These 2 arrive, and 5 minutes later, everyone's laughing and playing. Are they your girlfriends?", John asks. Niall can't stop watching Liv as he shakes his head yes.

"Yes they are", I answer for us both.

"We could sure use them on staff here", he says, before thanking us again and leaving.

"Who wants to hear a song", Liv asks. Hands shoot up all around the room. Someone on staff hands her a guitar and she sits down on a little chair. Mia's still sitting on the ground amongst the kids.

"Oh my god, Liv's singing alone?!" Niall says. We watch speechless as she starts playing.

Mean - Taylor Swift

You, with your words like knives

And swords and weapons that you use against me

You have knocked me off my feet again

Got me feeling like I'm nothing

You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard

Calling me out when I'm wounded

You picking on the weaker kid

You can take me down with just one single blow

But you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides

And your wildfire lies and your humiliation

You have pointed out my flaws again

As if I don't already see them

I walk with my head down

Trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you

I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around

Somebody made you cold

But the cycle ends right now

'Cause you can't lead me down that road

And you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a arcade

Talking over a video game

With that same big loud opinion

But nobody's listening

Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things

Grumbling on about how I can't sing

But all you are is mean

Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city

And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah

Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

We watch as Liv puts the guitar down and starts clapping her hands. The kids and Mia all clap along with her. "Ok, everybody sing with me." she says as she starts singing the verse again. The kids are all singing with her, loudly. Some are dancing, some are sitting, but they are ALL smiling.

The girls are quiet in the heli on their way back home. I lean over and bump Mia's shoulder with my own. "You good?", I ask. She shakes her head as tears pool in her eyes. I put my hand over hers and give it a squeeze, she lays her head on my shoulder. I glance at Liv, she's holding Niall's hand as she looks out the window. I notice the tears falling down her face too. None of us really know what to say. So we all stay quiet. Next time we go, it won't be for publicity.
